(This bundle includes Dementia Stages, Communication with Compassion, and Demystifying Behavioral Changes with Dementia)
As part of our Dementia Care Series, this class is recommended for caregivers of a friend or family member with Dementia. The instructor will cover the GEMS model, which recognizes the dynamic nature of the human brain and its abilities. Additionally, the instructor will cover a positive look at dementia stages and appropriate activities for the different GEMS.
1). Students will be able to identify a GEM.
2). Students will be able to come up with activities for different GEMS.
If you are a student with a documented disability and have not voluntarily disclosed the nature of your disability so that we may coordinate the accommodations you need, you are invited to contact the Disability Support Services Office (DSSO) in ‘Ilima 107, ph.734-9552, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance. For students whose primary disability is Deaf or hard of hearing, contact the KCC Deaf Center at ph. 734-9210 (V), 447-1379 (videophone), or email email@example.com.
