Assessing Family Preferences for Participation in Care in Hospitalized Older Adults

The involvement of family members in the care of the hospitalized older patient can provide tremendous benefits and boost recovery outcomes; not only do family members share vital care information, but they offer emotional and spiritual support to the older adults. The Family Preferences Index will enable caregivers to determine how much family members want to help, or the extent to which they are capable of helping. This collaborative effect can improve overall communication, and establish a more effective care plan. Suitable for hospital, skilled nursing, rehabilitative, and home health setting. (Part of a 28-DVD training series).
