All staff undergo 40-56 hours of orientation, overseen by Teresa, who is certified in the Teepa Snow Positive Approach to Care program, a true senior care expert and also a Certified Dementia Practitioner. Once finished, staff are Certified Dementia Care Specialists and all are versed in the 7 Dimensions of Wellness.
Ongoing training comes in many forms, with the most effective form being actually working side-by-side with Teresa. A nationally recognized expert in the field, she not only teaches the “Positive Approach to Care” program in the classroom, but she also demonstrates it and works hands-on with our staff and residents.
Ongoing expert training is another hallmark of Teresa’s House and is key to ensuring quality care for our residents.
