Senior Gems®: Helping Caregivers Assess and Provide Care for Seniors with Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Senior Helpers® created the Senior Gems® program to offer an effective approach to providing outstanding care and support for our clients. Whether experiencing normal aging or late stage dementia, your loved one will receive individualized care that focuses on what is unique and precious about him or her through our Bloomington, Nashville, and Bedford Alzheimer’s care and dementia support services.
Our positive approach to care addresses the changes that occur as their disease progresses. At Senior Helpers, our goal is to help your loved one live a meaningful life at home. The strategies, techniques, and approach with the Senior Gems® program is based on the Gems™, created and developed by Teepa Snow, Positive Approach, LLC.
The Gems classification system allows trained Senior Helpers caregivers to:
- Understand what a person can still do based on a gem level.
- Identify the characteristics of different stages of dementia.
- Create the best plan for caring for the individual long term.
- Use specific strategies based on gem level to care for our seniors.
