Leave Your MARCC: Toward Better Behavior: Yours, Mine, and Everyone Else's

According to Bobbie Vailes, As the long-term care demographics continue to shift and diversify, the greater the need to understand people as individuals. Achieving such understanding presents new challenges and considerations in assessment and care planning. While long-term care facilities once cared almost exclusively for the frail elderly, many of whom had also been diagnosed with dementia, today's populations are far more varied in age, disability, and psychosocial circumstances. That makes understanding “what makes someone tick” more complicated, at best. An upcoming educational session provides professional caregivers a framework for developing an assessment process that results in a deeper understanding of what motivates someone to do what they do. With greater understanding comes a more focused, personalized plan to accommodate the complicated needs of every individual. This session will be held February 20, 2019 at 2:00 PM EST.
