The Necessity of Skilled Interventions

When an elderly loved one is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, or severe mental impairment due to a stroke, the caregiver may notice a negative change in the behavior of the elderly person.  The behavior of the elderly loved one may become violent or aggressive, making it difficult for a family caregiver to continue giving the elderly loved one the necessary care.  When such behavior becomes apparent, the family may decide that the elderly loved one requires the support of a skilled nursing facility.  The staff of a skilled nursing facility should be made aware of any violent or aggressive behaviors that the elderly resident will demonstrate in order for the staff to plan skilled interventions.  Skilled interventions can take many different forms, depending on the nature of the violent behavior.  For some elderly residents, skilled interventions may involve taking a moment of quiet during a violent outburst.  For other elderly residents, skilled interventions involve distracting the resident away from the source that has instigated the violent or aggressive reaction.  Skilled interventions are the best possible way to prevent injury and further damaging psychological effects to the elderly loved one.  Without the implementation of a plan for skilled interventions, the possibility of the elderly loved one harming the staff or causing personal harm is greatly increased.
