At Home Care Provides Teepa Snow Training For Caregivers
We have sent two groups to Teepa Snow seminars to better provide better care for our dementia clients. Our first group came back from the training so energized and better prepared to help, that a second group was sent this month. The second group reacted with the same enthusiasm, and we will send a third group in the future. Those that have had the training are busy passing on what they have learned to our caregivers in the field and new hires. We feel that with this understanding and skill that our people will provide loving, effective service to our dementia clients.
Alzheimer Association Support
The staff of At Home Care supported the Walk To End Alzheimers in DesMoines and Ames this fall. Management, caregivers, support staff, clients, and friends enjoyed the events and raised over $1300 for care, support, and research. In the United States, someone develops Alzheimers every 66 seconds. Please consider joining us in finding an end for this devastating disease.
