Event description
Explore the GEMS® model which recognizes the dynamic nature of the human brain and its abilities.

About this Event

Please join us for a FREE workshop led by Positive Approach to Care Trainer Dorothy Colby. Just as gemstones need different settings and care to show their best characteristics, so do people. Rather than focusing on a person’s loss when there is brain change, seeing individuals as precious, unique, and capable encourages a care partnership and is the core of the GEMS® model. Providing supportive settings for everyone, including care providers, allows them to use what they have to be their best. All individuals, whatever their state of being, in the right setting and with the right care, can shine!

Parking is free and refreshments will be served.

After the workshop guided tours of Hale Ku'ike Bayside will be available for those interested.
