Dear Palm Garden Family,

If you harken back to Module 3: GEM, you’ll see the words “The GEM is not identified by its expense- the GEM is in “going the extra mile,” noticing the little things and acting on them. GEMS are about the life story. It’s not the money, it’s the compassionate act that identifies a GEM.”

GEMS are about empowerment too. 3 different Commitments relate directly to GEMS. They all have an empowerment in common. GEMS are open to guests, residents, family members and each other.
