Building a Positive Approach to Dementia Care
Senior Helpers and Teepa Snow have joined forces on a revolutionary program called the Senior Gems™ to help caregivers and families care for their elderly loved ones battling this devastating disease. Teepa’s Gems classification system (based on the Allen Cognitive Disability Theory) allows us to understand which stage of dementia the person is experiencing so we can create the best plan and select the best caregiver for that individual. Caregivers who are trained using her approach can help change resistance and refusals into participation and successful interactions.
