*In 2016, Positive Approach® to Care (PAC), made the decision to change our wording from stages of dementia to states of dementia. The reasoning for this is that dementia is an ever changing condition, and many internal and external factors can affect a person’s GEMS® state in a given moment. This video was recorded before that switch, so you will hear Teepa say “stages of dementia”, and while all of the information is still accurate, we want you to be aware that there has been a change in wording.
