Bullying in older adult care settings across the nation has become a concern for all caregivers. It is more common than we may expect and even the most critical eye may miss this behavior. We must always ask ourselves: Is this behavior related to the dementia disease process? Is it just this person’s personality? Am I being too sensitive?
How can caregivers and leadership teams educate and empower themselves to recognize bullying? How can caregivers and leadership teams intervene while protecting the rights of all older adults and maintain dignity and safety? Come to this session to learn how to address bullying in a confident and effective manner.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Define bullying
- Identify the three types of bullying
- List red flags for bullying behavior
- Define the difference between bullying and related disease processes
- Identify targets for bullying
- List at least three interventions to use with bullies
This program is appropriate for activity directors, life enrichment coordinators, and activity personnel in all assisted living and nursing facilities.
