ABSTRACT

Caring for PALTC Residents with Dementia During the COVID-19 Outbreak   [open pdf - 0B]

From the Document: "As we all work to provide the best care we can to our patients and residents and prevent the spread of COVID-19, we have developed some specific guidance on the care of residents with dementia. Given impairments with memory, language, learned motor skills, and perception, residents with dementia are profoundly impacted by the changes in daily routine, environmental changes, group activity restrictions, lack of familiar visitors, increased use of personal protective equipment, staffing shortages, and the increased emotional tone of the long-term care setting. There are no easy answers, but here are a few suggestions that may help."
