The Senior Gems system was created by Senior Helpers and is based on the Gems system’s approach to care for those seniors with dementia and Alzheimer’s. The Gem system was created by Teepa Snow. The Gem system is used to identify the aging characteristics, which range from normal aging characteristics to early and late stages of dementia. Since more seniors are facing the risk of dementia, the gem system is used to characterize the stage of dementia that a person is in, and to provide information about treatment and strategies to help them cope. The Senior Gem program is also used to create the best plan for long-term care that is individualized.
The Senior Gem program focuses of what makes each senior unique, and the changes that could take place as the dementia progresses. Those trained in the Senior Gem program can look at what the senior can do, and create a plan to allow them to live a purposeful life in their home. This system is about taking a positive approach and finding the strategies that work.
Why Use The Senior Gem Program?
Dementia is brain disorder that is progressive, which has a huge range of symptoms. There are several well-known disorders that can cause dementia systems like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. In the United States alone, there are millions of people living with dementia and other disorders that lead to it. There are estimates by the Mayo Clinic and the Alzheimer’s Association that around 1 in 3 seniors are living with dementia and will pass away with it.
The Senior Gems program is designed to give families and caregivers the information to prepare and care for those with dementia. If you are worried that a loved one has dementia, you and your loved one can benefit from Senior Gem’s tips and concepts for care.
