Living in Long-Term Care: The Resident's Perspective

Editorial Reviews

In this DVD, residents talk honestly about their experiences living in long-term care. They describe the difficulty of the transition from their home and their initial days of depression and adjustment. Their life is now one room. They wake up when staff come to provide their a.m. care. Their meals are what someone else has decided they will eat. After overcoming their initial reactions, most of the people interviewed, have come to realize this is a  new stage in life where they need help.   With the encouragement of the nursing staff, many begin to challenge themselves to do as much as they can for themselves, try new activities and become involved in their new world. One resident says, “We are not just waiting to die.” 
This program provides first hand insights into the difficult adjustment faced by elderly individuals when they transition to living in long-term care or assisted living. Resident interviews clearly indicate a successful transition depends on staff support and encouragement. Nurturing nursing assistants can make living in long-term care successful by helping residents acquire a  new perspective, a willingness to accept what is no longer possible, and the mindset to live each day to its fullest. Excellent for staff development and students training to work with the elderly, including those in nursing, social work, physical therapy, and occupational therapy programs.
