Positive Approach to Care

Memory Care - Positive Physical Approach

Positive Physical Approach™ (PPA)

This is the first step in creating compassionate relationships. It provides a way to connect with people, visually and verbally. PPA asks the question, “Can you except a connection from me right now?” and respectfully accepts the answer or offers an alternative.

Memory Care - The Gems - Brain Change Model

The GEMS®: Brain Change Model

This classification model encourages us to get curious about the stages of brain change by focusing on abilities that are present versus what is lost. It provides us with the knowledge to dynamically assess where people are, what they need, and what is possible. The GEMS® advocate that everyone living with brain change when given the opportunity will shine.

Memory Care - Hand Under Hand

Hand-under-Hand™ (HuH)

This allows care partners and people living with dementia the opportunity to build an authentic relationship through a non-threatening physical connection. HuH says, “I am here to support you – to do WITH you, not TO you.”
