Learn from our Memory Care Experts.
Our workshops are free and open to all. Hear from our very own Positive Approach® to Care trainer, Dorothy Colby. By understanding the brain and the effects of memory loss on your loved ones, you’ll walk away with a greater understanding of how to be a better, more compassionate, more effective caregiver.
Dementia Progression Patterns: Seeing GEMS, Not Just Loss
Explore the GEMS® model which recognizes the dynamic nature of the human brain and its abilities. Rather than focusing on a person’s memory loss, learn to see an individual as precious, unique and capable. This encourages a care partnership and is the core of the GEMS® model. All individuals, whatever their state of being, in the right setting and with the right care, can shine!
