Engaging Staff and Residents in Person-Centered Care

Friday November 09, 9:00AM
CEUs: 3

Enroll

1. Attendees will be able to describe at least three key differences between person-centered assessment for dementia versus standard assessments for persons with dementia.

Content

  • Viewing dementia as a disability rather than a disease.
  • Focus on strengths and capacities remaining rather than finding errors or weaknesses.
  • Focus on creating effective plans of care rather than providing a diagnosis or staging of a disease.

2. Attendees will be able to describe at least four areas to assess using person-centered methods for persons with dementia.

Content

  • Capacity to imitate
  • Capacity to read and ability to determine the type size / language that enables the person to read
  • Capacity to categorize
  • Capacity to match
  • Capacity to use tools
  • Capacity to use external aids
  • Capacity to communicate effectively

3. Attendees will be able to describe at least three key differences between person-centered approaches to gathering histories and background information versus standard approaches for persons with dementia.

Content

  • Focus on gathering as much information directly from the person with dementia as possible. What they tell you often is different from what family members tell you. (How much do your children really know about you and your preferences?)
  • Include questions regarding hopes, wishes for the future, goals yet to be accomplished, things they would like to learn, and other future-oriented items. This is supposed to be a community they are joining where they are expected to live, not a place to come to die.
  • Create a system that enables all staff members to have ready access to a resident's preferences at the time and place when such information is most useful.

4. Attendees will be able to practice translating person-centered assessments into person-centered plans of care.

Content

  • Examples of translating assessment results into plans of care will be presented and discussed.
