Editorial Reviews

These interviews with long-term care residents should become the standard guidelines for all staff in long term care, assisted living and home care. For residents no longer able to do things for themselves, having a nursing assistant provide for their basic needs is a very difficult situation. Often embarrased, residents are dealing with loss of dignity, a perceived violation of their privacy, and unwelcomed dependency.
Residents ask nursing assistants to understand that loss of function is not easy. They want nursing assistants to know them as an individual, to find out what they are still able to do, and where they need assistance. Respecting personal preferences, providing privacy during care and using a manner that doesn’t diminish dignity are all important. Residents in this video, speak for themselves and for those who are unable are able to communicate, when they express their desire to be clean and look well kept.
Safety is an issue for all residents. Everyone is fearful of falling as they attempt to go from bed to wheelchair and during other transfers. As the bathroom is seen as a dangerous place, it's not surprising residents want a call bell answered quickly or a person close by to assist. Finally, residents talk about staff attitudes. When staff are critical or unpleasant while providing ADL care, this makes the potentially demeaning situation worse. Residents feel much better about accepting this very necessary assistance if nursing assistants are pleasant and courteous when providing this most personal care.
