Introducing Our Newest PAC Resource!
Our new Positive Approach to Care Resource Cards are an in-the-moment tool brimming with our most essential PAC skills and information. PAC Resource Cards provide you with tons of material in an easily accessible format. They are a valuable resource you can provide to families and/or professionals for use in any setting to offer that just-right level of support for both the care partner and the person living with dementia.
Our cards are brightly colored and are printed on 8.5 x 5.5-inch, double-sided, glossy cardstock. Convenient and extremely economical, PAC Resource Cards are packaged in sets of 25 of the same card.
GEMS Resource Card: On the front of this card, the characteristics of each of the GEMS of dementia progression is detailed, and provides a quick-reference guide to the cognitive and physical abilities of Sapphire, Diamond, Emerald, Amber, Ruby, and Pearl states. Use this card to help you and your team efficiently assess and recognize transitions in GEMS states in both yourself and others, whether living with dementia or not, to provide the best support possible for all involved on the journey of dementia. The back of the card provides an easy-to-read chart with helpful ways to support a person living with dementia at each GEMS state, as well as a visual depiction of our highly effective Hand-under-Hand® technique.
For our Certified Trainers and Coaches, the GEMS card is an invaluable tool for helping your Learners build their dementia knowledge by being able to visualize and remember the progression of the GEMS and teach and reinforce using Hand-under-Hand to assist others in completing care tasks.
