Mental Health: Caring for Residents with Bi-Polar Disorder & Personality Disorders
May 28
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST
CE for NHA, Nurses, CEHCH, CEAL, Social Work

Caring for someone with any illness is difficult. Caring for someone with a psychiatric illness is especially hard for many reasons. Just getting someone who is diagnosed with Bi-Polar or Personality Disorder to accept care and treatment is a major accomplishment. While there have been many advances in the care of residents with depression, the manic and depressive symptoms of Bi-Polar disorder and the symptoms of Personality Disorder are often described as ?behavior.? Ensuring staff understand and can recognize and distinguish the symptoms of these diagnoses is important to the development of realistic, person-centered interventions. This session provides information and ideas on assessment and care planning for residents impacted by Bi-Polar and Personality Disorders.

Objectives: At the conclusion of this series, the participant will be able to:

1. Explain the care needs and accommodations for residents diagnosed with Bi-Polar or Personality Disorder:
2. Explain the importance of understanding the symptoms and challenges associated with a diagnosis of Bi-Polar or Personality Disorder:
3. Develop improved methods for the assessment and person-centered care planning for residents with behavioral health needs.
