    In-Service Kit: "Family Dynamics for Caregivers"

    This ready-to-teach in-service package includes all the pieces needed to teach a 25-minute in-service.

    In-Service Topic "Family Dynamics for Caregivers"
    It is important to consider that each resident enters a nursing home with a history and a family with a complex dynamic. Caregivers are in a unique position to help impact that dynamic positively because of their close contact with the resident. In this in-service, a case study examines which factors cause tension with regard to a family member in the nursing home. It examines the effects of strain on the dynamic and teaches effective caregiver interventions. Positive effects of aiding a family dynamic are greater job satisfaction (a critical component in career longevity) and fewer behaviors influenced by enhanced caregiver-to-resident communication. Caregivers will learn the following topics:

    • What a family dynamic is and factors that influence it
    • Family roles and how they change during a disease process
    • Strategies in aiding communication, compassionate listening, coping, education, and understanding
