Dementia Tas

Our dementia consultant was thrilled to have the opportunity to attend a public lecture by Teepa Snow at the Wicking Dementia Centre this week. The talk was focused on promoting wellness and well being after a dementia diagnosis.

"It was a very thought provoking talk by Teepa, and it was excellent to see her in person," said Ros.

Teepa Snow is a leading trainer and consultant providing support and care that places the person living with dementia in a pivotal role when determining what is needed.
Her goal is to help communities, organisations, families and individuals develop the awareness, knowledge, and skills needed to better support and care for someone living with the brain changes of dementia.

Thanks for coming to Tasmania and sharing your wisdom Teepa! 😀😀
