Product Description

Learn Best Practices for Individualized Care under the CMS Dementia Care Focused Survey

You must be aware that the new additional CMS Dementia Care Focused Survey ascertains compliance with care and services for a resident with dementia. Now is your chance to become familiar with the survey, surveyor worksheets and, most importantly, the best practices. It is essential that you learn to view “behaviors” as communication, recognize dementia-related communications, be individual-centered and not institution-centered as CMS requires. You must also offer meaningful engagement by all your staff all day to reduce antipsychotics. It’s time to create a proactive, preventive, individualized, resident-focused dementia care culture.

Join this session with expert speaker Carmen Bowmen, who will provide you the exact tools surveyors use for the CMS Dementia Care Focused Survey. But better than that, you will learn the best practices in the field which CMS reflects in this survey. Carmen will share how you can compare best practices with the practices used in your community, and be inspired to give to the residents who live where you work practices which create a home, individualized care, and more real life and less institutionalized life.
