The Senior Gems® created by Senior Helpers®, is a method used to provide effective strategies for support and care for your loved one for everything from normal aging through late stage dementia. Through Senior Gems®, we are able to focus on what is precious and unique about each senior.
Changes take place as their disease progresses, but by taking a positive approach to care and using strategies that work, Senior Helpers can help your loved one to continue to live a purposeful life at home. The Senior Gems is based on the Gems™, techniques, strategies, and overall approach to care which was created and developed by Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC.
The Gems classification system allows trained Senior Helpers caregivers to:
- Identify the characteristics of different stages of dementia
- Understand what a person can still do based on a gem level
- Use specific strategies based on gem level to care for our seniors.
- Create the best plan for caring for the individual long term.
