Over the past year, I’ve been involved with several exciting long-term care-related projects that I can now tell you about. In the spirit of the season, I wanted to spread some good cheer with them*, and also offer a gift.
The first is a book entitled “Bullying Among Older Adults: How to Recognize and Address an Unseen Epidemic” by Robin P. Bonifas, to which I had the honor of contributing a chapter. This volume addresses the effects of bullying among seniors and outlines actions which facilities and communities can take to address the problem. It provides step-by-step assessment strategies and anti-bullying interventions that will increase staff awareness and improve day-to-day interactions.
In another publication, fellow geropsychologists Kelly O’Shea Carney and Margaret P. Norris have put their years of experience to paper in “Transforming Long-Term Care: Expanded Roles for Mental Health Professionals.” As I state in my review of their work, “The book will … appeal to long-term care policy strategists and facility managers looking for ways to reduce costs while improving care quality and staff turnover.” The book digs deeper into the Eldercare Method (which I earlier discussed here) and outlines ways in which long-term care can make better use of its consulting psychologists.
And finally, I’d like to offer the opportunity to download — through this Friday — a free Kindle version of my book, “The Savvy Resident’s Guide: Everything You Wanted to Know About Your Nursing Home Stay But Were Afraid to Ask.” This large-print guidebook provides essential facility-friendly information in an entertaining format for residents and family members regarding how to make the most of their time in a nursing home. (If you like it as much as I think you will, order here by Dec. 23 for a 20% discount for purchases of 25 or more. Use the code MCKNIGHTS upon checkout.)
