Includes a Live Event on 10/01/2020 at 10:30 AM (EDT)
This presentation will focus on behavioral health issues that are increasing due to social isolation from the COVID-19 pandemic. Caregivers need to stay focused on residents to identify changes in mood due to social isolation quickly. Rehabilitation has a role in evaluating the physical issues as well as behavioral health issues that are on the rise due to social isolation. An individualized, person-centered plan is developed by rehabilitation, and education is provided to the staff for keeping residents engaged in meaningful activities to keep them functioning at their highest level and improving quality of life.
