Mountain Home care provides dementia related training workshops, consulting services, and other educational resources to our clients and employees.   All training and resources are based on the Positive Approach™ to Care (PAC) philosophy and teachings of nationally renowned dementia educator Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA.   In just 11 years it is estimated that there will be a 40 percent increase of people living with dementia (from 6.8 million to approximately 9.5 million individuals). Alzheimer's diesease, the most commom type of dementia, is the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, cured, or slowed.
