Want to learn about tools to screen for cognitive impairment and about evidence-based strategies for early intervention and prevention of these problems in cognitively impaired older adults hospitalized for acute illness or surgery? Dr. Mary Naylor, and members of her research team from the University of Pennsylvania, explain how healthcare providers can better screen for cognitive impairment, manage the acute care environment, and ease transition to home or other care setting.
For you, the thought of a warm bath or shower is probably a treat anticipated to provide comfort and relaxation. How unfortunate that for those with dementia, the bathing experience may be a painful, frightening, and humiliating procedure.
With planning and a process customized to address each person’s unique needs, or a person-centered approach, older adults with dementia can be spared a negative experience. This 30-minute program is based on the April 2006 New Look at the Old AJN article by Joanne Rader MN, RN, et al, titled: The Bathing Of Older Adults with Dementia. The video outlines cutting-edge research and presents best practices in bathing from researchers and practitioners, as well as guidance from the perspective of a state regulatory agency on what actually constitutes compliance with relevant standards of care.
