Increase knowledge about dementia and develop skills to connect with and better care for your loved one

There’s no question that memory loss is a family affair. Those living with it and those who love and care for them confront the continual need to adjust the way they relate and communicate. Finding ways to make these challenges more manageable is essential to enhancing the quality of life for all involved.

Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) is a dementia care philosophy developed by Teepa Snow, a renowned advocate for people living with dementia. PAC is an ability-based movement that increases the understanding of why dementia is happening, and it offers practical, actionable techniques to support those living with brain change in a positive and respectful way.

After the workshop, chat with our frontline team and learn how they can best support you and your loved one. Enjoy summery light bites made by our Executive Chef Val, sip to a glass of wine and pair it with a selection of cheeses. Tours are available following the workshop.

At The Kensington , we promise to love and care for your family as we do our own. So, in addition to our thoughtfully designed and clinically comprehensive programs, we partner with dementia innovators to share the latest information and caregiving strategies that improve everyday interactions. Because there is power in knowledge and comfort in community, we encourage you to join us, no matter where you are in your search for care. We are here for you.

For questions about this event, reach out to Heather Rich, Director of Community Relations, at hrich@kensingtonsl.com.

Meaghan Dingwall, MHA, board-certified dementia practitioner, and PAC Certified Coach, is the Connections Memory Care Supervision at The Kensington Reston.
