Assisted Living residents often take multiple medications for various medical conditions, complications and diseases. Polypharmacy occurs when a resident has an adverse reaction to negative interactions between two or more medications that have been prescribed to them, often times from multiple physicians. The problem is that the varying medical professionals providing care and services do not communicate with each other regarding prescribed medications. This course will take a closer look at polypharmacy, what causes it, what we can look for to help prevent it and what we can do to limit the negative effects it could have on our residents.

Providing Person Centered Care in your assisted living has endless benefits; not just for your residents, but for your staff and everyone connected to your care home. Providing quality care is not enough, our goal should be to provide quality of life for each individual and create a place where our residents can call home. In this course we will address several elements necessary to achieve our goals and create a place that is person oriented rather than focused on the task at hand.

As the human body ages, normal wear and tear causes systems to slow down and deteriorate, including, to a certain extent, the process of swallowing. Swallowing, however, that is painful, causes coughing or is difficult is not the normal wear and tear of aging. There are two swallowing disorders common in the elder population, oropharyngeal dysphagia and esophageal dysphagia. Both swallowing disorders can affect the quality of life of our residents by causing a decline in their health and their enjoyment of a basic human function - eating.

As our residents age with the diseases that cause dementia, they lose many of the activities that give them pleasure. Eating and the gratification they derive from the act itself are one of the few true delights they are able to find pleasurable almost to the end of the disease process, to the end of their lives. Our mission, as their caregivers, is to allow and enable them to fully enjoy the food and beverage of their choice for as long as possible - and as safely as possible. In this training module, together, we will explore ways to provide assistance for our residents with dementia while maintaining their dignity, independence and choice during the dining experience.

It is not uncommon for our residents in assisted living and residential care Communities who are cognitively impaired to also suffer from additional conditions, such as: depression, dementia, heart failure, urinary tract infection, etc. Our role as care providers is to understand the common diseases and disorders our residents encounter and develop strategies to provide a safe and caring environment to ensure appropriate quality care for each individual’s needs and desires. Learning how to adequately care and supervise each resident may be a challenge; however, using the right tools and methods we can establish quality care for residents with co-morbidities and are cognitively impaired.
