14 Comparison of working with a newly admitted resident vs. long term resident

15 Susan Reinhard Co-Director Community Living Exchange Rutgers University July 12, Myth: Most People in Nursing Homes Need to be There Those who resist change say: “People in nursing homes today are too frail to live in the community. Only a few of them can really leave.” Fact: For every person in a nursing home who needs assistance with 3 or more activities of daily living, there are 1.83 people living in the community who have the same level of disability.

16 16 Generalizations regarding newly admitted residents Overwhelmed by process that lead to NHP Informal support present and engaged Come from acute care or home setting Usually still have residence, material possessions Apprehensive

17 17 Generalizations regarding long term residents Informal supports have relaxed or gone away Loss of material possessions Resignation to institutionalization Dependent upon NH staff, schedule, supports May be in grief/loss cycle

18 Change = Loss = Grief Important factor is not that the change is good or bad, but that it is perceived as a negative event

19 19 Kubler Ross (1969) Grief/Loss cycle –Denial –Anger –Bargaining –Depression –Acceptance

20 20 Roller coaster ride of the grief/loss cycle

21 21 Barriers to NHT Irrational fears/thoughts External influences/institutional bias Lack of supports Housing issues Lack of knowledge regarding availability of community services Ageism

22 22 How to Address Barriers Differentiate between rational and irrational Express that consumer/informal supports have control/support Change the dialogue Challenge fears Develop support systems Be available Be supportive, not smothering Tout the success stories

23 23 Windows of Opportunity Before informal supports dwindle Before material possessions are gone Before becomes resigned to institutionalization Before supports are developed inside the facility Before hope is gone
