DVD “Music & Gems” (Teepa Snow) [Viewing time 33:37]

In this enlightening DVD, Teepa Snow shares facts and insights about the journey of dementia and how to use music effectively to benefit a loved one, or patient, with a changing brain. Because rhythm is typically a retained skill, music offers tremendous opportunity for deeper connection, cognitive activation, physical response, and access to feelings of joy that exist within pathways of emotional memory. Teepa teaches families and professionals the five ability levels of dementia and introduces the GEMS model of characteristic behaviors and skills, opening doors to understanding how to leverage what someone can do, and let go of what they can’t.

Teepa Snow, Dementia Care Expert, is an occupational therapist with over 30 years of vast clinical experience in the field of geriatrics and dementia. She is the creator of Positive Approach to Care and a world renowned speaker and advocate on behalf of individuals and families living with dementia.
