Learn how person-centered care can positiviely impact each day for persons with dementia...

This DVD shows how to make a hands-on shift to person-centered dementia care that engages the whole person and creates a support system based on each resident's needs and preferences.

From natural wake-ups to music therapy, the DVD looks at the benefits of involving residents in their care as much as possible, finding ways to help them to "continue" living life the way they prefer, and engaging them in personalized activities that boost self-esteem and interaction. It also empowers nursing assistants to act upon (and communicate to other team members) their first-hand knowledge of each resident to ensure a better understanding of their care needs.

PERSON-CENTERED DEMENTIA CARE: STORIES AND EXAMPLES

"Who is this person - without dementia? If we can tap into who this person is, we can help their adjustment, and the process that they go through." - from the DVD

Through hands-on stories and examples, this chaptered DVD shows the positive impact of person-centered care. When caregivers meet persons with dementia "where they are" and find creative and engaging ways to connect with each individual, based on their needs and preferences, life is better for both residents and staff.

The DVD includes the case study of Elaine, a resident who, for extended periods of time, attempts to leave the facility and go home. By pinpointing the importance of knowing the resident, it shows how her "exit-seeking" behavior is addressed and managed in the context of who she is and what she needs at that particular time.

The DVD also shows how to make life richer for the residents who have dementia by

  • personalizing their dining experience
  • encouraging use of remaining abilities
  • engaging them in creative activities
