This dementia training, Positive Approach to Care, will improve participants’ ability to interact positively and effectively with people experiencing dementia or a related condition. Part 1 and Part 2 will allow participants to continue to build on learned skills but each class is a stand-alone training opportunity so register for one or both!
In Part 2, Seeing GEMS® As More than Just Loss: Progression Patterns , participants will:
- Discuss normal aging and stages of dementia, and the correlating GEM for each (sapphire, diamond, emerald, amber, ruby, pearl).
- Use the GEMS™ to facilitate positive, supportive communication between the care giver and the person being cared for.
- Analyze and respond to unmet needs that lead to distress or challenging behaviors as the disease progresses.
- Describe effective combinations of multi-modal helping techniques, emphasizing use of preserved abilities.
