Description

As Catholic providers of long-term care services, we are committed to respect the dignity of each person we serve and to excellence in all of our care. Recent recognition of excessive and ineffective use of psycho pharmaceuticals has increased interest in the use of behavioral, non-pharmaceutical interventions to reduce unwanted behaviors in nursing homes. Successful implementation of behavioral interventions creates the means to install a proactive environment to avoid rather than correct unwanted behaviors, and also the means to measure improvement. We discussed the importance of changing the perspective from waiting for a resident behavior to occur to intervene (the medical model) to using knowledge of the residents and their special needs to resolve behavioral issues before they occur.

Presenters: Sr. M. Peter Lillian Di Maria, O. Carm., LNHA, CDP, Director of the Avila Institute of Gerontology, Germantown, N.Y.; and Alfred W. Norwood, BS, MBA, President and Founder of Behavior Science, Inc.
