The responsibility of providing mental health evaluations and treatment to nursing home patients is increasingly falling on the shoulders of social services and nursing staff. Psychosocial Intervention in Long-Term Care provides the advanced techniques you, as a caregiver, need for assessing and intervening with psychosocial and behavioral problems in LTC. Targeted to students and staff who are familiar with the basic needs and problems of LTC residents, this book also describes effective ways of documenting assessments and interventions to help you integrate results into the medical record and prepare for state surveys. Psychosocial Intervention in Long-Term Care presents you with information about common mental disorders in LTC, basic counseling techniques, and the three major types of psychiatric medication.
