Positive Approach to Care Champions at The Cedars

The Cedars would like to recognize and congratulate our first PAC (Positive Approach to Care) Champions. Pictured here are Jenna Perkins, Kelly Thumb, Tracy Fleck and Karen Cook. Each of these wonderful caregivers has completed The Cedars Positive Approach to Care Trainings – created by internationally regarded occupational therapist, Teepa Snow – and has demonstrated their new skills while working with our residents who are living with memory loss.

Their care, patience, creativity, and positive attitudes all combine to make our residents’ daily lives more peaceful and connected. Working with each resident’s strengths, instead of focusing on their cognitive losses, translates to better days and more successful moments for people living with memory loss. As PAC Champions, each caregiver has signed an agreement to be a role model to their team in their Positive Approach to Care with our residents.  

You can find each of these caregivers working on The Cedars Neighborhoods wearing their newly awarded PAC Champion Purple Ribbon. We invite you to congratulate each of them! To find out more about the Cedars PAC trainings please contact Susan Raychard, MOTR/L, CDP, Ind. PAC Trainer and Mindful Connections Coordinator, or Nick Viti MOTR/L, CDP, Ind. PAC Trainer and Manager of Life Enrichment.
