  1. Thank you for this eye-opening and thought-provoking lesson. When we talk about caring for the elderly, we tend to spoonfeed them,sometimes reaching the point where we treat them like they're paralyzed. Engaging is key to helping them through this situation.

  2.  I have gone in as a volunteer at an  alzheimer's unit at a nursing home for many years. Thanks for giving me some new insights!

  3. You don't have to be a caregiver or have family with this issue to find this very interesting and informative. The older I get I think it is more likely that I will know someone with these issues. The hand holding thing alone could have many other applications to many other situations. I remember once having a surgery and while coming out of the anesthesia my first awareness was of this nice feeling on my right forearm. It was a nurse guiding me out by gently stroking my forearm. She obviously knew what she was doing. That was more than ten years ago and to this day the memory fills me with comforted feelings. 

  4. Great video! She's a very informative and entertaining. Caregivers need all the help we can get, especially if we're caring for someone with dementia. It's important we claim our rest, our nutrients, our exercise and have a great support system in a wellness coach so that we can be excellent caregivers and decrease our chances of getting sick ourselves. Thanks for this information.

  5. I work in quality improvements and staff education at a residential aged care facility in NSW Australia. I love your work Teepa and would love to use some of your you tube clips for staff education. I've watched numerous you tube clips but haven't found any as practical and as engaging as yours.. Thank you so much and keep doing what you're doing.

  6. There is always something to take from these videos from Teepa, if only cloning this women was possible, I'd say a thousand more Teepa's would greatly make this world a better place.
    Good health to you.
