Invitation to Alzheimer's Workshop

Visit Laurel Parc for a Free Teepa Snow Training Session

Positive Approach to Care Theory & Hand Under Hand Method

Thursday, May 19th, 5:30-7:30pm

CEU's provided


Most education models teach the WHAT of dementia including mostly facts and information. PAC takes it a step further and teaches how to live in relationship with a changing brain. Teepa Snow's relational approach and hands on skill techniques offer the interpersonal skills needed to improve quality of life for everyone involved.


Dementia care pioneer Teepa Snow has developed a simple technique that anyone can easily learn and use to help connect with as well as comfort a person with dementia.

Using the technique, which Snow calls “Hand Under Hand™,” can also help dementia care partners “take control” of situations before they get out of hand.


Come learn with Pam Ruona, a Teepa Snow certified trainer, and then stay for a tour of the Brightway Memory Care Community and Laurel Parc.

What do Laurel Parc Residents Say about the Wellness Center?

Jane S. shared that she would be lost without all is offered at Laurel Parc. You can find her in the pool taking the early morning energizer class, as well as swimming lessons. She told us her arms are so much stronger! She takes several land classes and knows she is benefiting greatly from it. She has been enjoying meeting other residents in her classes as well.


Bud S. says, "I have a much better outlook on life. I feel stronger since coming to the Wellness Center on a regular basis. Life is good! The staff is wonderful and Rhoda is the greatest swim teacher here. I look forward to my time in the Wellness Center."


Mary B.'s face lit up during her first visit to the warm water therapeutic pool. She said it took her back to her days swimming in the lake as a child back home in Michigan. "This is heaven, pure heaven!"
