bigchris 1 Report Share Posted April 25, 2009 Ok Gang, This week I will try one for a resident that I just call a safety. They are usually dementia/memory impaired with some type of safety device (AKA- chair alarm or possibly a lap/chair buddy) Problem- I have safety concerns from past falls and a history of ________, I will need small group and one to one activities such as __________ to make sure I am safe around others. Goal- I will continue to participate in _________ activities that I prefer in a safe manner for the next _____. Give some examples of your activities..... Approach- You have some leeway here depending on what activities you provide. I will use a few.....but please remember that memory residents have TONS of different approaches, especially on keeping them safe. For this example, I will use a resident who was a secretary.....worked during the day..... 1) I enjoy staying busy and putting things in thier place, please provide me with activities that keep my fingers busy. ( Filing, folding, general fiddling) 2) I am an early riser and am busy all day, transport and provide 1/1 with _______ to help me get through the day. 3) I sometimes forget that I can fall, seat me near a desk or table and I will do well. ( I actually sit her with me when I chart and give her a file folder with blank forms, articles, etc.) Ok, my friends.....the floor is open.....
