The Nursing Home Resident: A Holistic Approach is a new 1-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that thoughtfully examines the many considerations in providing care for older adults.
As our population ages we need to create the appropriate environment in our long-term care facilities addressing the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions of each resident. Mental health professionals frequently provide treatment for nursing home residents and information for their families.
The Nursing Home Resident will increase awareness about the needs of this population and the continuum of services that are offered in long-term care facilities. Sections include discussions about normal aging, steps in finding a facility that best meets each individual’s needs, the place of grief and loss in the lives of older adults and their families, and dealing with death and dying. It will expand healthcare professionals’ knowledge about issues that are rarely addressed but that are essential if one expects to provide the best of care and quality of life to older adults. Course #11-32 | 2019 | 24 pages | 10 posttest questions
