GEMS: Creating Pleasure with Rubies (Recorded Webinar)


This is the eleventh of twelve recorded webinars in the Getting Connected: Building Skill to Support GEMS webinar series with Teepa Snow.  This series focuses on enhancing interaction skills and appreciating the many changes that the person living with dementia is likely to be experiencing.  In this session, learn that when working with someone in a Ruby state, it is vital to appreciate little whispers, movements, and signals.  Explore the concept that creating pleasure may not always result in the ‘big win,’ but, with changed expectations, can still have amazing results.

By the end of this webinar, you will be able to:

  • Recognize characteristics of the Ruby GEMS state
  • Discuss factors that create pleasure or joy for those in an Ruby state
  • Describe the concept of changing expectations for creating moments of pleasure and success
