This webinar provides participants with an applied understanding of Person Directed Care - the best practice approach to providing care which is truly individualized - reflecting an understanding of the resident as an individual - rather than as a patient

How To Use
Additional Information

Imagine a nursing home environment in which staff come to know and interact with residents as individuals, rather than by their room number or medical condition. Imagine a nursing home in which nursing routines, social services, activity programs, meal menus and daily routines are based on residents' needs, interests, customary routines and personal preference, rather than on staff convenience or institutional systems. Now, create this reality by embracing Person Directed Care! This model of care represents a significant shift away from the traditional medical model (in which staff do TO or FOR a resident) towards a model of care in which staff come to know their residents as individuals - and then utilize this understanding in the delivery of individualized, resident centered care.

During this information packed webinar, participants will:

  • Understand the difference between the Medical Model and Person Directed Care.
  • Gain practical applications for Social Services, Activities and Nursing to promote Person Directed Care through assessment, care planning, programming and staff to resident interactions.
  • Learn how to utilize assessment information to develop Person Directed (behavioral) alternatives to pharmacological interventions and restraints.
