DVD: Music & Gems
In this enlightening DVD, Teepa Snow shares facts and insights about the journey of dementia and how to use music effectively when living with the effects of 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 introduces families and professionals to the GEMS® State model of characteristic behaviors and retained skills. This unique model will open doors of understanding to anyone who wishes to learn to leverage what someone “can do”, and let go of what they “can’t.”
