Just Say, "Tell Me About It"

Teepa Snow

Understand how people with dementia see the world. Learn the right thing to say & how to say it. See how to adapt to the world of dementia, better communicate with a person with Alzheimer's & improve their quality of life.

This video is an excerpt of "It's All In Your Approach", a 2 1/2 hour training DVD for caregivers.

Teepa Snow, a nationally acclaimed Alzheimer's and dementia care specialist, teaches her students how a person with dementia perceives his/her world and how to properly adapt one's own behavior to increase communication and the patient's quality of life.

"It's All In Your Approach" is presented by The Pines Education Institute of SW Florida and facilitated by Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA.

  1. Saw her in person this week end she is excellent. Ordered several DVD's.
    If you have the chance to see her in person it is well worth it.

  2. I absolutely love this lady. My husband is three years on in his mixed altziemers dementia, and even after all this time I have learned a lot from her. She puts it so clearly. Pig of an illness. So sad for everyone concerned

  3. wonderful. i want all my mama's care givers to see this and i want to see so much more. thank you teepa snow

  4. Great approach--I would think that using the cue: "Tell Me About It" would work well in our wider interactions. The reality is that we all want to be heard.
