“We don’t know when someone is going to die,” says Dr. Wertheimer introducing a discussion of what nursing assistants can do to provide comfort care to residents even while they are continuing to receive life prolonging therapies. She emphasizes that care in the final years must be a gift as if each day is the last. In response, nursing staff share the special things they do to make sure all long-term care patients receive the gifts of compassion, relationships, and extra time whenever possible. Interviews with residents reveal that these extra things are what truly provide quality and meaning to their lives. Both staff and residents agree, that comfort care is both rewarding to give and to receive.
This DVD is excellent for staff training in long-term care and assisted living as well as for training students to work with the elderly.
