How to Try This: Assessments and Best Practices in the Care of Older Adults

Understanding how to care for the physical, emotional, and psychosocial needs of older adults often calls for a special set of skills…

This groundbreaking, new 28-DVD series offers a consistent, “how-to” training format that equips caregivers to provide age-specific assessments and appropriate interventions to conditions that are often overlooked or misdiagnosed in older adults.

From determining nutritional status and detecting delirium to evaluating physical functionality and recognizing elder abuse, each DVD encourages a critical-thinking, evidence-based approach that yields an accurate assessment, then shows how to translate the assessment results into an effective, multidisciplinary Plan of Care. This series will elevate the information-gathering and problem-solving skills of caregivers, while ensuring an optimal quality of life for older adults.

Each video is divided into chapters for easier access to specific content.
