Getting Hit, Grabbed & Threatened: What it Means and What to Do
Hitting, grabbing, yelling, threatening…
These reactions often represent an unmet need that a person with dementia can no longer express. Through real-life interactions this sensitizing DVD looks at how discovering the meaning behind the behavior can be the first step to a successful intervention. It demonstrates how catering your approach to the resident’s “right-now” need can reduce or defuse aggressive behaviors while increasing the resident’s sense of well-being.
The DVD stresses:
- the benefits of permanent staff assignments
- the importance of staff sharing their knowledge of the resident
- using an interdepartmental team approach to meeting residents’ needs
The DVD also shows ways to greatly reduce agitation for residents during personal care – bathing, dressing, and grooming.
