Her company, Positive Approach® to Care (PAC), provides training, services, and products. She has integrated her education and varied work experiences, recent medical and international research, and first-hand care support and provision background into a program that guides others in effectively working with people living with neurocognitive degeneration, her website states.
Snow’s workshop will include three interactive sessions full of practical and insightful tips. Her sessions cover caregiving in general plus specific topics ranging from humor to the holidays. She’ll leave participates with a deeper understanding of what it means to be the best caregiver you can be, according to information about the event.
