Additional Information
Details

Residents with dementia and delirium are constantly assessing the environment, looking for clues to help them understand where they are, who others around them are, what they are supposed to be doing and what is expected of them. By attending to environmental clues, we may support functional independence, mobility, perceived control, perceived security, and even cognitive functioning. Moreover, research also suggests that attention to environmental clues may reduce falls, behavioral incidents, prevent resident to resident altercations and resident to staff altercations (especially during the delivery of ADL care), and also support the reduction of pharmacological intervention in the care of mood and behavior problems.

During this fascinating, example packed webinar full of creative solutions, participants will:

  • Discover cost contained ideas and strategies for environmental adaptations to enhance functional abilities and reduce confusion and disorientation.
  • Identify environmental adaptations to support cognitive functioning and ADL care (nutrition/hydration, bathing, grooming, hygiene, etc.).
  • Explore environmental approaches to reduce elopement
  • Enhance social space and walking areas (lighting, artwork, safety)
  • Learn how to evaluate lighting and eliminate glare in order to reduce falls, agitation, anxiety and depression
  • Explore strategies to reduce noise and other sources of environmental distraction
