The Lodge Awarded Grants to Implement Positive Approach to Care

The Lodge at Bethany has been awarded two healthcare grants from Alliant Health Solutions totaling approximately $35,000. The grants are being used to train and certify the Caregivers at The Lodge to implement the Positive Approach to Care® (PAC) philosophy endorsed and taught by Teepa Snow. This method is recognized nationally as the model for programming to meet the individual needs of those living with dementia.

PAC provides training, continued education, and consultation to organizations and individuals who choose to grow in dementia related awareness, knowledge, skill and competence. All training is based on Ms. Snow’s Positive Approach to Care philosophy. Ms. Snow is a leading advocate for those living with dementia and has made it her personal mission to help families and professionals better understand how it feels to be living with dementia related challenges and change, and believes that her vision of Positive Approach training can make a difference in the lives of those who have dementia and those who are caring for those who have this disease.

PAC is certification that is intense and driven by many hours of work on the part of the organization to learn and implement the person-centered approach to care that allows the caregivers to meet the complex and unique needs of individuals using effective and structured techniques, intended to ultimately lead to better care and support of those living with changing abilities.
