    In-Service Kit: "Behaviors: Wandering and Verbal Disruption"


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

    In-Service Topic "Behaviors: Wandering and Verbal Disruption"
    Unchecked verbal disruption will make the unit an unbearably stressful home for residents and workplace for caregivers. Wandering can pose health and safety risks that can result in disastrous consequences if a resident elopes. Provide your residents and staff with a safer and more pleasant environment through proactive education. Staff will first learn to identify when wandering is or is not a problem, as well as several interventions unique to wandering and verbal disruption. They will then gain a person-centered understanding of why residents exhibit these behaviors. Then, the following six interventions are presented in a step-by-step format:

    • Increasing structure of resident schedule
    • Cognitive bins/busy boxes
    • Doll therapy
    • Photo albums
    • Simulated presence of a family member
    • Massage therapy/aromatherapy
