Event description

Description

Please join Dorothy Colby for a Positive Approach to Care™ seminar on GEMS, a system developed by Teepa Snow, that will provide essential information on how to classify and define the changes in a person due to the effects of dementia. GEMS™ improves on existing models and is not used just to classify a state or stage of dementia, but also to improve interactions and appreciation of the individual. The GEM™ characteristics focus on ability instead of loss and are a valuable tool to assist with changing abilities that impact relationships and expectations. Learn about what it means to be living in a world with Sapphire, Diamond, Emerald, Amber, Ruby or Pearl cognitive and physical abilities. All individuals, whatever their state of being, in the right setting and with the right care, can shine!

To see an overview of Teepa's GEMS: http://teepasnow.com/resources/teepa-tips-videos/teepas-gems/

Participants will receive handouts of the material covered. Refreshments will be provided. Other Positive Approach to Care resources will be available for purchase.
