The GEMS®: Using Skills That Make a Difference

This is an online webinar available Statewide in Alaska
There will be an in-person version of this class on October 4—attend the one that best fits your schedule.

The GEMS®, developed by acclaimed dementia educator Teepa Snow, is a dementia model that focuses on an individual’s uniqueness and capabilities, rather than on their memory loss. The GEMS® model recognizes the dynamic nature of the human brain and its abilities.

Join us to discover how to use this knowledge to improve everyday living, care tasks, and communications. People, like gemstones, are precious and unique—with the right care and setting they can shine
