Viewers will learn the ways in which personal needs are fulfilled within homelike settings and how a facility can improve resident functioning by making simple adaptations in the physical and caregiving environments.
Through individual resident profiles, this DVD illustrates facility staff using a step-by-step process to identify problem areas, recognize underlying needs that aren’t being met, and then create more supportive, homelike solutions that
- recognize a resident’s former roles, relationships, and routines
- support the resident’s memory of him- or herself
- give the resident a greater sense of control
- provide the opportunities for privacy
Discover how the environment can contribute to an enhanced sense of well-being for residents, staff, and even for people who are far advanced in the disease process.
