Editorial Reviews

This DVD addresses the important issue of recognizing pain in Alzheimer’s patients. While other residents can help the health care team by describing their pain, in many instances the person with Alzheimer's disease is not able to do so.

Dr. Peter Rabins talks with nursing staff at a long-term care facility, helping caregivers identify ways to determine if an individual with Alzheimer's disease is experiencing pain. Dr. Rabins explains the importance of knowing each resident as an individual and their baseline behaviors as change becomes the "call bell" alerting staff to pain. Staff share the changes they have observed which can be pain signals. These include such things as: a resident suddenly becoming withdrawn or agitated; a resident starting to call out; or a change in appetite or in sleep patterns. Other signs observed by staff include: facial expressions; pulling away from staff providing care; or suddenly becoming resistant to getting up in the morning.

By knowing the resident and looking out for these behavioral and emotional changes, staff can effectively identify potential on-set of pain in individuals with Alzheimer’s disease. The program includes: guidelines presented by Dr. Rabins; suggestions from experienced nursing staff; and patient evaluations. This DVD is appropriate for staff development in long-term care, assisted living and day care programs as well as for students training to work with the elderly.
