GEMS™: Understanding the stages of dementia

About This Event

  • Event Type:Mruk Family Education Center on Aging

The GEMS™ workshop offers an overview of Teepa Snow’s dementia classification model (developed from the basic structure of Allen Cognitive Disability Levels). The GEMS model compares different states of being and ability to the characteristics of precious jewels. This dignified metaphor defines normal aging as well as the many appearances, behavioral changes, skill sets and needs of those living with the effects of neurocognitive failure (dementia) or other brain changes. Christy Pennington, RN, PAC™ Certified Dementia Trainer
