Notes on my observation on second day of visit 4-8-10 Behavior and Communication • Residents need opportunities and sufficient time to express themselves. My Observation of interaction between residents and the Activities Staff Members during Activity time: Example : Speaking in simple, direct language to residents, potentially accompanied by gestures, pictures, written words or verbal cues, may help staff communicate with residents when involved in daily activities. Example : Residents may need to work with a speech-language pathologist to maximize their communication skills. • The behavior and emotional state of people with dementia often are forms of communication because residents may lack the ability to communicate in other ways. • Staff need initial and ongoing training to identify potential triggers for a resident’s behavioral and emotional symptoms, such as agitation and depression.
