NursePartners’ approach to Alzheimer’s and Springfield, PA Dementia Care is based on The GEMS™: Brain Change Model created by Teepa Snow. NursePartners recognizes Teepa’s positive approach to care as an effective method to provide care for loved ones affected by dementia. This approach categorizes dementia stages by six different gemstones, defined by unique characteristics. Click here for an overview of the classification system. We explain the GEMSTM and positive approach to care during our periodic workshops in your area.
