  • Dementia Fundamentals
    Conditions of the brain are complex.
    This presentation will take an in-depth look into normal and abnormal brain changes associated with aging.
  • Dealing With Resistance
    Dementia affects people in different ways. This presentation will offer communication tips for caregivers and provide successful care partnering techniques to promote positive outcomes.
  • The GEMS Brain Change Model
    Just as gemstones need unique care to showcase their best characteristics, so too do people. The GEMS cognitive model from positive Approach to Care (PAC) correlates each dementia state with a different gem. This presentation will detail the GEMS model and provide caregivers with tips to serve individuals in each stage and focus on their best attributes rather than their memory loss.

Register for the symposium at or by calling story point Portage at 269-329-0200.

The symposium is free of charge. Continental breakfast and lunch will be served.
