About This Event

  • Event Type:Mruk Family Education Center on Aging
Details: This workshop focuses on 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.
