CMS has placed much more survey focus on facility interventions for behavioral challenges and dementia care, as well as utilization of non-pharmacologic interventions for the reduction of antipsychotics. Alleviating the symptoms of the behavior becomes an increasing challenge for the activity and recreation professional, especially as the percentage of nursing home and assisted living residents with dementia steadily increases. Oftentimes the activity department merely becomes a "dumping ground" for residents who exhibit the more challenging behaviors for facility staff. This session will identify causal factors and provide valid activity interventions for a variety of behaviors. Surveyors have been given examples of successful activity interventions and expect to find these when they assess facility programs. Shouldn't your staff have this information also?Expand summary
