Working with Families of Hospitalized Older Adults Who Have Dementia

The benefits of improving care of hospitalized older adults who have dementia, by tapping into the wealth of information family members can provide, is shown in this pre-admission screening. The DVD shows the importance of identifying normal behavior patterns, individual preferences, and ADL capabilities, with the ultimate goal of preventing avoidable problems, and improving outcomes. How hospitalization can affect patients is also discussed, along with the delirium prevention and fall prevention protocols. (Part of a 28-DVD training series).
