Individuals diagnosed with dementia make up the majority of the population in skilled nursing facilities (SNFs). Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs) are the primary caretakers of older adults living in SNFs. The purpose of this grant project was to write a proposal for funding to provide Person-Centered Care (PCC) training to help CNAs enhance their skills to better enhance the quality of life of older adults living with dementia in SNFs.
The goal of PCC training is to help CNAs better understand the signs and symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia, improve communication skills, and provide strategies to manage the behavioral and psychological symptoms of dementia. Previous research on PCC has found it to be effective in improving the quality of care of older adults who are affected by dementia and who are living in nursing homes.
Actual submission or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
