It is Teepa’s mission to change the culture of dementia support and care. She believes people living with brain changes, caused by various dementias, are all too frequently being deprived of their human rights and, at times, their legal rights. The current care systems and service providers typically provide minimally adequate or inadequate care and support. As a rule, those who will provide care and support are inadequately prepared and monitored for skill introduction and use. There is much to be accomplished to improve what is current common practice into what is best practice when it comes to working with people living with dementia, from early symptoms to end of life.
