Offering high quality, compassionate care starts with a person-centered care approach by a facility’s staff. - JoAnn Westbrook
Sarasota, FL (PRWEB) September 20, 2017
Pines of Sarasota Education & Training Institute announces the release of its new dementia care program “How to Get Your Staff Engaged in Better Care Techniques” with Teepa Snow, available on instant online video streaming or DVD.
Targeted at healthcare professionals who have had trouble motivating their staff to learn and use new skills, this program provides trainers with the necessary insights and actionable strategies to change their staff’s mindset, enthusiasm, and how to create true culture change to positively impact the quality of care for those living with dementia.
JoAnn Westbrook, Director of Education and licensed Nursing Home Administrator, explains: “Offering high quality, compassionate care starts with a person-centered care approach by a facility’s staff. To allow staff members to move from task-oriented care to person-centered, they need team leaders that know how to take on supportive coaching roles instead of traditional supervising. This program prepares them and their communities to best implement Teepa Snow’s “Positive Approach to CareTM” techniques, thereby offering the most compassionate care available today.”
