This workshop offers an overview of Teepa Snow’s dementia classification model.  Each stage is compared to a gem and focuses on strengths and abilities, along with changes in each state.  There is an emphasis on understanding abilities, adjusting expectations, modifying cues and support, and improving communication and “hand on” care to meet ever-changing needs.
