Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Very informative. Very helpful. Teepa keeps her audience engaged and learning. And the information she imparts is invaluable. I highly recommend this DVD set to professional caregivers and to family members alike - especially if your loved one has experienced loss in the areas of impulse control, initiating tasks, completing a sequence of tasks, or understanding and producing speech.
These DVDs will help you understand WHY your loved one is changing and will give you practical techniques to reduce your own stress while providing the best help for your loved one. After watching these two DVDs (3 hrs.) I am requiring the entire staff of my assisted living facility to watch them.
The DVD"S were awesome! Teepa is exceptional. If she can't make you understand something, there is a problem. I was at the seminar and also had the opportunity to speak with here at break time. I was very enlightend when I left there. My husband has Frontal Temporal Dimentia and it really helped to understand the journey. I bought the DVD"S to help along the way.
Teepa Snow is simply the BEST at describing and informing the many forms of dementia. I'd recommend ALL of her videos because she gives you such good insights.
