Dementia Care & Focus on Retained Abilities
In this webinar, Dementia Specialist Anne Ellett will examine dementia care and the important of focusing on retained abilities. First and foremost, Best Life dispels the myth that living with dementia means you do not have retained abilities and talents and cannot continue to experience and learn new things. The prevailing perspective of dementia focuses predominantly on loss, debility, and fear. Traditional beliefs, behaviors, and systems reinforce the perception that people living with dementia are “unable” or childlike, while Best Life focuses on the value of real relationships with children, pets, and nature.

The Patient-Driven Payment Model (PDPM) is the proposed new Medicare payment rule for skilled nursing homes. PDPM is intended to replace the current RUG-IV system with a completely new way of calculating reimbursement. Under PDPM, therapy minutes are removed as the basis for payment in favor of resident classifications and anticipated resource needs during the course of an elder's stay.
