With Part 1 - Sapphire & Diamond Gems The Senior Gems® is a program developed by Senior Helpers and dementia expert Teepa Snow that focuses on what is precious and unique about all seniors who suffer from Alzheimer's and Dementia. Learn to identify the characteristics of normal aging and early-stage dementia. The Gems help us focus on what people can do and how we can help them to live purposeful lives while they exhibit the brain changes evident from this disease. Wednesday May 22nd 1 pm to 2:30 pm Part 2 Emerald & Amber Gems Identify the characteristics of seniors who suffer from early-mid and mid-late stage dementia. The Gems help us focus on what strategies we can use when interacting with the various emotions, actions, and conversations of seniors with dementia. Wednesday June 12th 1 pm to 2:30 pm Part 3 Ruby & Pearl Gems Learn about the difficulties of living with dementia and how you can help enrich the lives of seniors who suffer from the late stages of dementia. Learn about the behaviors to watch, and both strategies to avoid and strategies that work when engaging with seniors who may seem entirely different, but are still precious if treated with respect and are given the right care.
