Mar 24, 2018 4:00pm ‐ Mar 24, 2018 5:30pm


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

This session will examine differing needs and risks associated with younger residents in LTC. Speakers will discuss reasons for the growth of this population, and associated challenges as LTC facilities and staff adapt to individuals who may be very long-term residents whom are tech savvy, may retain considerable physical or cognitive capacity, and also may retain interests or personality traits that can be very difficult to manage in a traditional SNF setting.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe common medical conditions affecting younger residents and psychosocial correlates of these conditions.
  2. Identify risks that may be associated with younger residents and a strategy to mitigate them.
  3. Develop a care plan to address psychosocial issues of younger residents including activity and risk management components.
