Barb Heywood, our Administrator here at Arbors Memory Care Community in Sparks, received her Consultant Certification through the Positive ApproachTM to Care (PAC) Program. PAC was created by Teepa Snow, one of the leading educators on dementia in the United States.
The Consultant Certification is designed for professionals, like Heywood, who counsel and advise individuals and families working through dementia related challenges. In addition to dementia related awareness and knowledge, the program teaches effective communication techniques, strategies to connect with clients in a meaningful way, and methods of providing the right resources at the right time.
Heywood has nearly 25 years of experience in the assisted living and healthcare industry in Northern Nevada. Arbors Memory Care Community is a family-owned and operated residential community providing care for persons living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
