The Senior Gems® Presentation

Your Guide to Providing Care and Support to Individuals with Dementia

Please join us for this FREE educational event based on programs developed by dementia expert Teepa Snow!  This exciting workshop focuses on understanding the various types and stages of dementia-related disorders, and how to provide the best care and support for individuals with dementia.

 Topics Include

  • Recognizing and Understanding the Progression of Dementia
  • Positive and Effective Strategies for Dementia Care
