In this course you will learn the special psychosocial needs of the elderly and strategies that can be used to help you give person-centered care. You will learn how the use of these strategies can make residents happier and healthier—and make them feel better about themselves. Changes in the human body can make life more difficult. Often that is why people enter long-term care communities. For some residents, aging is very frightening or depressing, yet others adapt well. The way you work with residents can make them feel better about themselves—and can make your work more pleasant.
