Teepa Snow, Dementia Care Expert
MorningStar was honored to host 400 people at the Valor Performance Center in Denver, all sitting in rapt attention listening to Teepa Snow, internationally acclaimed dementia care expert. July 24 was an inspiring and empowering day of dementia education from “The Master.”
As families and senior living professionals, we laughed, we cried, we felt our fears fall away as the “Ah-ha” moments came, one after the next. Teepa shattered the myths; she told it to us straight, all the while imparting the knowledge, resolve and courage that is at the very heart of the dementia journey.
From the balcony, where many of our lavender-clad MorningStar ambassadors sat, we saw the crowd’s lively engagement. So many scenes touched our hearts, which are already so tenderized by the dementia journey. One team member sat next to a married couple. The wife, who suffered memory impairment, listened as attentively as her husband to Teepa’s words. She leaned over and whispered, “Yes, that’s all true. I do forget my words.”
