The workshop offers an overview of Teepa Snow’s Dementia Abilities Model, the GEMS™. The GEMS™ model compares different stages of dementia to the characteristics of precious jewels. This dignified metaphor defines normal aging as well as the many appearances, behavior changes, skill sets and needs of those living with the progressive effects of dementia. Understanding the GEM™ levels will lead to an adjustment of expectations, communication and hands on care to better meet the ever-changing needs of these individuals. The GEMS™ advocate that people living with dementia, when given just the right care in the right setting can still shine.
