“Mike was a very engaging presenter. His passion for his work and his servant heart showed through in the way he presented the material. He was able to engage all the attendees throughout the two days and pushed us out of our comfort zone to truly learn how to go out and present the materials to other clinicians and to direct service consumers.
I especially love the additional marketing tools that he provided the group and the continuous encouragement that we go out and teach the material to others and not just sit on the learning we have acquired. “
Kailani B. Talton, OTR/L
“I learned the types of Dementia and how to assist the client to engage in functional activity to prevent or decrease agitation of the caregiver and client. I also learned how to conduct an interview regarding the client’s abilities, physical function and cognitive status to best determine what level of assistance is needed to provide the best support. This course helped me to understand how I can utilize my experience and knowledge to assist those with dementia and provide support the caregiver.”
Yolanda Bowdre, OTR/L
Thank you for facilitating the ONLINE Live Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia Care Seminar. I have been wanting to take the course for a long time now. Even though I am already an Independent Certified Positive Approach to Care Trainer and Coach, I am excited to become a Certified Dementia Practitioner. I did learn some things from the course and look forward to adding them to my current trainings.
I still believe Positive Approach to Care (PAC) is the missing link to effectively caring for persons living with dementia. I was very impressed with your presentation style. I have attended many terrible continuing education courses with power point readers. You really engaged the class well and you could see NO ONE on video.
Your “volunteer victor” scheme was genius in helping people to form presentation skills so they can actually use this information. I found you to be very positive and encouraging and it really helped to motivate me to form some goals for 2020 and step out of my comfort zone.
Thank you for the experience. I hope someday we can collaborate on something fun and maybe I see you as part of PAC cause you are ROCK!!!
“I already know most of the information on the CDP slides and book/manual since I’ve worked with the adult population for the past 5 years, but Mike engaged and encouraged all the attendees to participate by presenting on a slide on two to develop confidence in presenting the materials to others and that was very beneficial because I was forced out of my comfort zone.
He also added real world information on how to market our new learning/certification in order to impact more service consumers in our community, and most of those are new knowledge.”
Kailani B. Talton, OTR/L
“The instructor was great. Dr. Chua kept the class active and had many experiences to share. He encouraged all of us to be the very best we can be. Loved learning with other health care providers with the same interest in being the very best for our residents, clients, families or loved ones with Alzheimer’s and dementia.”
Jennifer Foster, LPN, LNHA
“Better understanding of how to present information to other healthcare workers and families of patients with dementia. Great class, easy to follow, very informative.”
