Senior Gems®: Helping Caregivers Assess and Provide Care for Seniors with Alzheimer’s and Dementia
The Senior Gems® program created by Senior Helpers® is our unique approach to dementia support services for the elderly in Granger, Notre Dame, and other nearby areas. We can provide South Bend Alzheimer’s care from the first signs of aging to the later stages of dementia. Through Senior Gems®, our team can provide custom care based on the unique qualities of each senior.
There are several changes that take place as the disease of dementia progresses, but we will be there through each step to ensure your loved one continues to lead a life filled with purpose and dignity, from the comfort of their 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.
