In this webinar, Teepa looks at the changes in a person due to the effects of dementia. She created GEMS™, a system for better understanding dementia, to be utilized not just to classify a state or stage of dementia, but as a means to improve interaction and appreciation of individuals. The GEM™ characteristics focus on ability instead of loss and are an invaluable tool to assist with changing abilities that impact relationship and expectations. Learn more about what it means to be living in the world with Sapphire, Diamond, Emerald, Amber, Ruby or Pearl cognitive and physical ability. Teepa will show you how all individuals, whatever their state of being, in the right setting and with the right care, can shine!
