Summary
Disorientation in an elder-care patient poses a wide range of risks-from difficulties in socializing with other residents to the dangers confused seniors face if they venture outside a care facility unattended. This program depicts common characteristics of dementia and demonstrates intervention techniques for dealing with them in an effective, compassionate manner. Problems outlined in the video include memory loss, catastrophic reactions, communication problems, loss of physical coordination, wandering, depression, rummaging and hoarding, and social facades that conceal mental or psychological issues. Caregiver methods include distraction from negative behavior, simplification of tasks, calming reminders, and other steps. Reviewed for accuracy in 2003. Designated for 2 contact hours of continuing nursing education
