  • Tidbit of the Week for January 5, 2020: New Videos on Function Focused Care Website!

    Happy 2020! We are thrilled to start off the new year by introducing 7 new brief videos we created to help you and your staff work with your residents who are experiencing cognitive decline and may have some challenging behaviors. Each video includes common scenarios that you and your staff may frequently encounter, with “tricks of the trade” from our experts on how you can respond in those situations and increase your chances for a successful outcome.

    Each video is only a few minutes long, so they are ideal to show at orientation for new staff, during staff meetings, or one-on-one with staff members who are facing a specific challenge with a resident.

    Topics include:

    • Promoting independence
    • Tips for bathing
    • Tips for dressing and toileting
    • Tips for oral care
    • Tips for shaving
    • Tips for repetitive vocalizations
    • Tips for exit seeking behaviors

     

    The videos are on our website at http://www.functionfocusedcare.org/videocoaching

    Let us know what you think of them, and have a great week!
