GEMS: Coping with Ruby Distress (Recorded Webinar)


This is the tenth of twelve recorded webinars in the Getting Connected: Building Skill to Support GEMS webinar series with Teepa Snow.  This series focuses on enhancing interaction skills and appreciating the many changes that the person living with dementia is likely to be experiencing. Working with someone in the Ruby state who has only gross motor skills and big movements can frustrate many care partners.  Explore common mistakes that are made when working with those in a Ruby state, and learn how to adapt your efforts to better match their abilities, resulting in interactions that are less confusing, overwhelming, and distressing.

By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Recognize the Ruby GEMS state characteristics
  • Discuss factors that may contribute to challenging situations and distress for an individual  in an Ruby state
  • Describe techniques and methods that may be used to help improve interactions with those in an Emerald state
