Nurses With Heart – Home Health Hint of the Week: Dementia & Distraction

Dementia & Distraction

Nurses With Heart is excited to add another home health hint to our video blog – every week we will be posting a short video related to staying safe and healthy at home. This week we go over how distraction can be a helpful technique when helping individuals with dementia – check it out!

Pain management in those experiencing dementia can be challenging. Due to the disease process of dementia, pain can become all-consuming, because it can be the only thing the individual can focus on. In addition to traditional interventions for pain management, distraction can serve as a powerful tool. Watch the video below for more information about how distraction can help those with dementia be more comfortable.

Thank you for watching!
