Whether you are a professional in the Health Care Industry or a friend or family member of someone living with dementia, this is a must-see seminar packed with useful information you can begin utilizing immediately.  Teepa’s GEMS® States classification system (based on the Allen Cognitive Disability Theory) helps you to understand which state of brain change the person is experiencing, and how to respond appropriately.  Senior Helpers adapted Teepa’s GEMS® States into the Senior GEMS®, which they use to train their caregivers.  People who are trained to use a Positive Approach to Care® can help change resistance and refusals into participation and successful interactions.
