ABOUT THE WEBINAR 

This is Session 1 of the Practical Strategies for COVID-19 & Beyond: A Clinical Excellence Series.

Brenda’s day is usually filled with meals in the cafeteria, games or crafts in the common room, therapy with OT and PT, and frequent visits from family. That schedule came to a screeching halt with the rise of COVID-19 cases. Brenda no longer leaves her room – meals are delivered, therapy is minimal, entertainment consists of endless television programs. Her roommate was abruptly moved out, and her favorite staff members no longer have time for conversation. Family can only wave at her through her window. Brenda’s normally happy demeanor has steadily declined. Brenda is just one of the many residents whose quality of care has been drastically altered. In the necessity to protect residents from exposure to the virus, the social isolation has led to unintentional consequences.

Tell me more: This presentation will focus on behavioral health issues that are increasing due to social isolation from the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important for caregivers to stay focused on patients to quickly identify changes in mood due to social isolation. 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 resident’s engaged in meaningful activities to keep them functioning at their highest level and improving quality of life.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Identify causes/risk factors of behavioral health issues due to social isolation from COVID-19
  • Identify the role of rehabilitation to work with individuals with behavioral health issues
  • Educate facility staff on routines, activities and meaningful activities to improve quality of life

TARGET AUDIENCE

With a focus on clinical excellence, the sessions featured in the series will provide actionable strategies that clinical staff, administrators, social workers, and the like can implement in their community, in their team, and in their own lives as we navigate this global pandemic and discover where the field of aging services is headed.
