Geriatric Video Programs

Abstract

Geriatric Video Productions, Inc., has added three programs to its existing videotape series on geriatric care. Programs include:

* Solving Bathing Problems in Persons With Alzheimer's Disease guides staff in individualizing the bathing approach and handling specific bathing problems (e.g., patients not wanting to get undressed, hitting and slapping, refusing to get into tub or shower, screaming). This program addresses maintaining quality of bathing procedures and provides case exercises for training.

* Using an actual geriatric interdisciplinary team, The Interdisciplinary Team explains the roles of team members, the influence of group dynamics and interpersonal communication on the team process, resolving team conflict, and building team consensus.

* A Member of the Team is designed to educate families and residents in long-term care settings about the team process of geriatric care. The program emphasizes the role residents play in care planning and helps prepare the residents and their families for team meetings.
