Positive Approach to Care Dementia: Positive Physical Approach and Hand Under Hand (Webinar)

This Workshop focuses on the Positive Approach to Care “care partnering” techniques, including Positive Physical Approach ™ (PPA) and Hand Under Hand ™ (HUH). These newly learned skills enable care partners to shift from simply “dealing with the behaviors” to creating a positive and caring environment. Learners develop observational skills needed to recognize signals of “unmet needs and growing distress” in the person they care for and respond in a way that reduces anxiety and improves quality of life. 

Participants can choose to do one session or the whole series.
