DRW21: States of Dementia - Seeing Through a Gems© Lens
Appreciate the state a person is and respond appropriately. Know when things change. States are not stages (early, moderate, severe). People move in and out of different states, even in one day. Observe so you can respond well. Based on PAC GEMS(c) model.

DRW31: Why Dementia Care is Different
Dementia care is unlike other care - The day to day realities are underestimated and carers do not receive appropriate information or support to enable them to care well. Understand dementia’s unique demands enables carers to adapt and cope with endless frustrations.
