Senior Gems®: Helping Caregivers Assess and Provide Care for Seniors with Alzheimer’s and Dementia
Our Senior Gems program is how our caregivers can provide the care and support your loved one needs when navigating this new phase of life or if they are experiencing late stage dementia. With Senior Gems we can find out the unique and specific requirements that your loved one needs to have met to live comfortably.
As Alzheimer’s or dementia progresses, the Senior Helpers of Greenwood and South Indianapolis use positive care approaches that allow your loved one to continue on and live a life that is truly full of purpose all in the comfort of their own home. Our Gems techniques and approach to senior care was developed by Positive Approach, LLC, created by Teepa Snow.
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.
