Hosted by Teepa Snow, Topics in this webinar include:

  •  In-depth answers from Teepa to many of the questions asked during our first webinar
  • Real-life scenarios and role-playing with Teepa and Melanie

Hosted by Teepa Snow, Topics in this webinar include:

  • Assist program leaders and staff in identifying who will be able to adhere to the social distancing protocol and who will require alternate care provision
  • Provide care staff with techniques to interact within intimate space and intimate care tasks with reasonable protection while actively engaging the PLwD in a friendly and supportive manner
  • Offer gathering plans and actions that provide meaningful and energizing social opportunities and connections in 1:1, small groups, and larger groups while minimizing the potential for COVID-19 transmission
  • Provide program leaders
