Please join Carol Brauer for a Positive Approach to Care seminar on GEMS, a system developed by Teepa Snow.
Teepa Snow’s GEMS™ workshop provides essential information on how to classify and define the changes in a person due to the effects of dementia. Learn how to classify and define the changes in a person caused by 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 GEMS™ 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 dementia and their cognitive and physical abilities.
