This educational POSTER shares the characteristics of Teepa’s GEMS® and is a beautiful and thought provoking addition to any environment seeking awareness for individuals working or living with dementia. Learn from the Sapphire, Diamond, Emerald, Amber, Ruby and Pearl cognitive and physical abilities shared in this dementia classification model. The 22″ x 28″ poster promotes positive perspective and realistic expectations for interaction with changing states and abilities due to brain change. Teepa’s model encourages providers to learn to assess “moments” of ability and respond accordingly. Dementia creates structural but also chemistry brain change that can cause individuals to move in and out of GEMS® levels monthly, weekly, or even daily. This education and exposure to specific indicators of ability is sure to grow observation skills, person-centered care practices, and empathy for those living with dementia.
