PAC™ Workshop C

Seeing GEMS®, Not Just Loss    

This workshop helps learners understand the GEMS® Model developed by Teepa Snow. This model is based on the Allen cognitive scale and focuses on what is retained for people living with dementia instead of only focusing on what is lost. In identifying retained skills and abilities, learners will be able to provide the right level of support and assistance in care with people in different ability states. By understanding GEMS States, we can learn to provide the best care and setting so that everyone can shine.

Engagement Training

Once a person is diagnosed with any dementia, often times it is almost immediate that people want to "help" by taking over everything for them, and not allowing them to continue to do for others.

This workshop helps learners understand the importance of engaging residents or family members in ways that are meaningful and which allows the person living with dementia to feel like they are still contributing to their own surroundings as well as the greater community.

This workshop is for professionals as well as family members.
