marge.gif Video: Communicating with the Alzheimer's-type Population: The Validationģ Method
$150.00
This practical documentary offers caregivers methods for communicating with disoriented very old people (probable Alzheimer's or related disorders). The video addresses how to deal with elderly people who begin making unfair or seemingly irrational accusations against those who care for them. By way of example, the video shows caregivers what to do when an 85 year old woman wanders from home, doesn't recognize her family, and becomes abusive.

In clear "before" and "after" scenes, Muriel and Marge offer families and staff helping techniques that will reduce burnout for caregivers and stress for the very old person.

A Patchwork of Memories
Edited by Martha Tyler John, PhD

Based on the belief that older people have good stories to tell, Story Writing in a Nursing Home was developed as part of a volunteer teaching service to a nursing home. Graduate students who were learning to teach this special population conducted story writing activities with older adults and found that even the frail elderly who are confined to nursing centers provided a unique perspective about events that emphasize the lasting verities in life. The idea of a patchwork was derived from one of the lessons taught and was suggested by one of the older participants who said, ďWeíre sort of like a patchwork quilt.Ē

2011snc101e3t.jpg Senior Boutique's E-Z Communication Board - English
$21.95
Looking for a simple, effective, and affordable way for a voice-disabled individual to communicate? Having to rely on head and hand movements to communicate is unreliable, anxiety-producing - and isolating. This augmentative communication board uses pictures, letters, words, and phrases to make the process much simpler and more precise.

Originally designed for health care professionals in speech pathology, rehabilitation medicine and critical care departments, the Vidatak board is lightweight and durable. And easy to use. Simply point to the desired word or phrase, or use a non-toxic wet-erase marker to circle it. All marks are easily erased with a moist tissue paper. This two-sided board may benefit those with: AIDS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Autism, Cancer, Cerebral Palsy, diseases of the larynx, head injury, multiple sclerosis, mechanical ventilation/intubation, stroke, and other chronic and neurodegenerative disorders that lead to communication impairment.

2011snc100bt.jpg Senior Boutique's Picture Communication Board
$21.95
Finally, a picture communication board that has been proven to work!

Most communication boards are based on intuition and guesswork rather than science. Vidatak's Picture Board is the exception.

This new communication board was three years in the making. Development was slow, because it involved collaboration, one-on-one individualization of picture boards with patients, and both clinical and patient feedback. Areas that were explored include both (1) which concepts should be represented on a Picture Board and (2) which pictures best represented those concepts.

The result? Using the Vidatak EZ Picture Board enables accurate and reliable communication using pictures. It is always recommended when using communication boards to review the board with the patient to orient the patient to the content of the board and verify equal understanding as well. Used at home, in hospitals, rehabs and assisted-living communities, this board, like others from Vidatak, helps give "voice" to those who need to communicate without speaking. For an individual unable to talk or write, this can mean less anxiety and frustration, greater safety and connection. And for that person's family and friends, there is the relief of having the barrier of silence penetrated. The Picture Communication Board is lightweight and durable, yet inexpensive. And easy to use. The individual simply points to the appropriate image or uses a non-toxic wet-erase marker to mark it. All marks are easily erased with a moist tissue paper.

An optional bedside holder can be used to keep the board protected and within easy reach.

11" x 17" dry-erase board.

sexuality.jpg Sexuality and Long Term Care: Understanding and Supporting the Needs of Older Adults
$45.00
by Gayle Appel Doll, M.S., Ph.D.

Responding to the sexual desires of older adults in residential environments is widely recognized as a challenge by care staff, administrators, and family members. This new resource meets the challenge head on, exploring the issues surrounding sexual expression from all perspectives. It addresses the question of how, in an increasingly person-centered care culture, long-term care facilities balance individual resident rights against the needs and concerns of the community as a whole. Who decides what is appropriate or inappropriate, and how?

The first book to take a person-centered approach to resident sexuality in long-term care, this groundbreaking training tool represents sexual expression as a significant part of personality, explains why it is important to honor longings for intimacy, and provides strategies for teaching staff how to effectively, respectfully, and compassionately acknowledge those needs. It will enlighten anyone who believes sexuality vanishes with age and offers solutions for navigating this highly charged issue.

Informative, engaging, and instructive, this helpful resource builds upon case studies that illustrate potential issues surrounding resident sexuality in various long-term care settings. Each scenario creates opportunities for healthy discussion about how the staff handled the situation, what was done well and what wasnít, and how to improve the outcomes. Throughout the book, best care practices for supporting resident sexuality are validated by research.

Long-term care administrators, nurses, social workers, counselors, direct care staff, ombudsmen, and others devoted to enhancing the quality of life in nursing homes will find answers to pressing questions surrounding sexuality, including

What is normal sexual expression in old age?
How does dementia affect sexuality?
What triggers inappropriate behaviors, and how can they be addressed and prevented?
What constitutes consent and/or competence?
How can lack of privacy be minimized in long-term care environments?
What concerns do LGBT residents bring to a long-term care community?
How can residents be protected from sexually transmitted diseases?
What do policies regarding sexual expression convey about a community's commitment to resident quality of life?

Valuable tools for staff training are included, such as reproducible handouts and group learning activities that encourage staff and managers to explore attitudes and biases about resident sexuality and to help organizations develop policies related to this fundamental need. Important take-away points are highlighted and sidebars offer effective solutions to common dilemmas surrounding sexuality in long-term care settings.
