Dementia 102  GEMS Program

GEMS® the focus is on seeing the individual as unique and capable, rather than memory loss. Using gemstones as a reference for each stage of dementia helps define the characteristics of the individual and the care needed to ensure the best quality of life.

Dementia 103: Communication and Skills

Shifting everyone's focus to something positive and familiar gives the caregiver tools to support their loved one and builds new coping mechanisms for the caregiver.  Teepa Snow developed the hand-under-hand as a guiding and assisting technique with the activity of daily living, feeding, and communication. It promotes a friendly, comforting, and attention-getting physical touch connection without being intrusive or overbearing.

Our Wishes for the End-of-Life Care

CE Completed for Social Workers and Nurses 4/5/2022

While 92% of Americans say it's essential to discuss their wishes for end-of-life care, only 32% have had such a conversation.  With 95% of Americans saying they would be willing to talk about their wishes, 53% even say they'd be relieved to discuss it.

We want to be understood, respected and believe that the conversation should be at the kitchen table, not in the intensive care unit.  Together we can make these difficult conversations easier for our loved ones, friends, and family.  The Conversation Project
