Caregivers and families of dementia sufferers are invited to a free film presentation by occupational therapist Teepa Snow at 1 p.m. Aug. 28 at the Stillaguamish Senior Center.
The film, called “The Senior Gems,” is based on Snow’s way of identifying what stage a person is at to know how best to care for them.
The “gem” stages are:
- Sapphire, normal aging
- Diamond, first signs of dementia
- Emerald, early stage of dementia
- Amber, midstage dementia
- Ruby, mid- to late-stage dementia
- Pearl, late-stage dementia
The Stillaguamish Senior Center is at 18308 Smokey Point Blvd., Arlington. Call Debra at 360-653-4551, ext. 236, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
