The job description for staff working in long-term care is far more than providing ADL care and making sure residents receive prescribed medications. As the model of person-centered care becomes integrated into nursing homes, it becomes mandatory for staff to know each resident and to respond to all of their needs. The residents interviewed for this DVD would like staff to: show they care about them as people; offer hugs or a gentle touch; inquire how they are doing; spare a few minutes to talk with them; to be a friend; and encourage them to form friendships with others.
For many residents living in long-term care family visits are rare, the most important people now in their lives are the staff providing their care. As one resident says, “Everyone needs to connect with other people. We don’t want to be lonely. We don’t want to be alone. Our care means caring for us as people.”
This DVD is excellent for staff training in long-term care and assisted living and for students training to work with the elderly.
