Understanding Why Elder Abuse Happens: Why Staff Lose It
Most nursing assistants working with the elderly in long term care have a compassionate caring life attitude. However, for nearly everyone there are certain factors or combinations of situations which can break through and threaten appropriate professional behavior. Give your staff the tools they need for stress management in long-term care.
In this DVD, Dr. Georgia Stevens leads a discussion with long-term care staff addressing potential factors which cause inappropriate staff responses. Staff discuss the stress of working in long-term care; the frustration of working short staffed; the need to respond to multiple simultaneous demands; and the stress of dealing with difficult residents. Guidelines are presented to deal effectively with these and other situations. This program is excellent for staff working in long-term care, assisted living and adult day care and for students training to work as nursing assistants.
Topics: stress triggers, anger management, teamwork
Audience: Long-term care, assisted living and adult day care staff
