Changing Skills Across the Progression of Dementia:
How OUR Communication and Care Can Change
Thursday, April 25, 2019

Moore-Norman Technology Center, South Penn Campus, OKC

Approved by NAB for 6 Hours CEU credit

This full day program will provide learners with a deep-dive into not only the progression of dementia–the retained skills across the progression of the disease–but specifically the different ways in which individuals retain skills at different levels of functioning across the individual’s senses through the progression of the disease. While Teepa Snow’s GEMS® State of dementia will serve as the basis of the talk, we will practice ways to assess, engage, and work with different functioning levels.  

Objectives

By the completion of the session, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the utility of a GEMS® dementia progression classification system vs other loss-focused systems of classification and demonstrate a dynamic assessment using the Positive Physical Approach to assess an individual’s retained skills across the three main senses of visual, verbal (expressive and receptive), and touch (sensory movement).
  2. Identify the skills and strengths of each of the 6 GEMS®
  3. Identify how to facilitate communication at each state.

Presenter: 

Beth Nolan is from Teepa Snow’s Positive Approach to Care (PAC). For 20 years, she helped implement evidence-based programs for behavioral health, medicine, and senior living.  Dr. Nolan now serves as the Director of Research and Policy, where she works to move care givers to become care partners.
