Dementia Patients Seem to Benefit From Small Group Homes
Date:9/16/2011

elt at home in their small group environment. Daily activities also provided the patients with stability and clarity, the study noted. The patients were also able to involve themselves in familiar activities, which helped them maintain their identity and feel more comfortable.

Relatives of the residents were treated as family, not just visitors, the researchers pointed out. They had keys to the home, visited regularly and helped with patients' personal care and chores.

The investigators also found that nurses working in the small group home were able to foster strong relationships with the residents and tailor care to their specific needs.

"The findings of our study indicate that the key to providing person-centered care for people with dementia is to enable people to be themselves and live in an environment where they and their families can get involved in normal daily activities," van Zadelhoff explained in the news release.

"However, the model is not without its problems," she added. "Nursing staff get more involved with residents and this can conflict with their clinical and professional distance. And the families in our study varied in how much they wanted to get involved in the care provided by the home, which sometimes led to tension."
