Session 4:  Medications & Mealtime Concerns and Options for GEMS States

Series #2: Providing Care Support in Ways that Are Accepted by the Person Living with Dementia

This series is designed to provide people who are seeking to help others with better hands-on skills in areas of self-care that traditionally and typically create challenges or result in frustration, resistance, or neglect. The purpose of these sessions is to provide learners with options and alternatives that promote shared engagement and collaboration. Each session will involve people living with dementia, role playing, task and skill exploration, and discussions. 

Please note:  The format for this series extraordinary in that we will break each session up into two programs:  The first hour we will focus on the Diamond and Emerald GEMS States.  There will be a five minute break and then we will spend the second hour exploring the topic as it relates to the Amber, Ruby, and Pearl GEMS States.  Participants are welcome to attend both hours of each session or just the hour that is of interest to you.

Session 1 - Communicating thru Distress (9/26)
Session 2 - Oral Hygiene Concerns and Options for GEMS States (10/16)
Session 3 - Personal Care (Bathing, Dressing) for GEMS States (11/19)
