Feed Her While She Walks

When a resident won’t sit long enough to eat, or insists on leaving, or wanders into potentially unsafe areas – what do you do?

 This 20-minute DVD will help. Using real people and real situations, it offers thought-provoking insights into wandering behavior, and shows effective examples of providing person-centered care to residents who wander or insist on leaving.  It also shows how an interdisciplinary approach to understanding and adjusting care to each resident’s specific needs can promote independence and safety, and identifies environmental cues that can help deter wandering into unsafe or private areas (such as, another resident’s room).

Includes strategies for:

  • Working with residents who wander at night
  • Working with residents who keep leaving the building
  • Working with residents who move items or get into things

Caregivers will be inspired to find creative, flexible ways to redirect and engage persons who wander or want to leave.
