Teepa Snow’s philosophy and education is reflective of her life-long journey professionally caring for and personally supporting people living with various forms of dementia. This person-centered approach evolved to meet the complex and unique needs of individuals using effective and structured technique. Teepa and her company strive to grow appreciation of differences that will lead to better care and support of those living with changing abilities.

Beth Tesfay, member of Snow’s PAC Leadership Team, has been working for PAC for 3 years. Beth has her Trainer, Engagement, consultant, coach, and advanced consultant PAC certification, and has also been a nurse for over 20 years. 

What is PAC?

Positive Approach® to Care (PAC), provides training, services, and products around the world. Teepa has successfully integrated her education, extremely varied work experiences, recent medical and international research, and first-hand care provision experiences, into a program that guides others in effectively working with people living with neurocognitive degeneration. Using the words neurodegenerative change, rather than dementia, is an example of how Teepa is working to change the norm of dementia care culture. “As people living with dementia at the World Health Organization summit indicated, language matters. So, let’s try using the words that match what is actually happening for people, not the word that imposes judgement on another’s mind” was Teepa’s comment when asked why try to get a complicated word into the vocabulary of people who have difficulty knowing the difference between the terms Alzheimers and dementia.

PAC Vision: Positive Approach to Care® enhances life and relationships of those living with brain change by fostering an inclusive global community.

Until There’s A Cure, There’s Care.
