Health care workers are the first line of defense against dementia in nursing homes.
The number of people with dementia who die is rising.
Now, a federal study is providing a new tool for caregivers to help save a loved one’s life.
The study is funded by the National Institutes of Health and is part of the National Health Service Retirement and Disability Fund.
It looks at how home health care workers (HCPs) respond to patients with dementia and the caregivers in their homes.
I’ve talked to some of the HCPs that we know about.
I’m a veteran who was in the military for nearly 30 years.
I was at two of the oldest HCP’s that were in my neighborhood in Philadelphia.
We were the first people to get there and I’m glad I did because I had a good time.
I can tell you that the Hcps are extremely helpful.
They have an incredible understanding of what needs to be done.
I just hope that they are there to support you.
When they’re there, they really do listen and they really care.
It is so rewarding to be there for them.
That’s why I’m so proud of them.
They are so great.
I also wanted to talk to a nursing home.
The nursing home I was working at was in North Philadelphia, a predominantly black community, and they have a very different culture.
They’re a very quiet community.
They don’t really talk to each other much.
They tend to do their jobs in isolation.
They’ve got a lot of people that are disabled, elderly and very ill.
So when they’re working, it is a lot more challenging.
I think that nursing homes have a lot to learn about managing their patients, their families, their staff and their families and how to support them.
There are a lot better ways to do things, and the HCMs that I worked with were the ones that were doing the best job.
The HCP was my co-worker, so we were all working together.
I have a great relationship with my colleagues, and it was such a pleasure to work with them.
The best part about being a nursing care worker is that you can just do what you do and you don’t have to worry about anything.
You don’t need to worry if you get sick, if you have a bad day.
I mean, if someone needs you, you’re there.
You know how to help them.
It’s just about just being there for the patient.
I really like the work that I do because it is so easy.
It takes about two hours to do a shift.
And you don’st have to get up early to work.
It just takes about 15 minutes.
You can do a lot.
And they are really great at it.
They really like what they do.
I love that.
When we first started working together, I was in my mid-30s, and I had been in nursing for four years, so it was a lot harder for me to get used to being on a full-time schedule.
And I was also in a very small nursing home in a small community.
And the nurse who I worked for, she is so talented and I think she really helped me become comfortable with the work.
But it was hard for me because I am a woman.
She was also a woman and I wanted to be able to work in a man’s environment, so I would work at a desk.
So I was really grateful to be working with a woman because I would never have gotten that experience without her.
And she really cared about me.
I had to work so hard to get to that point.
So working with women really gave me that confidence and that energy to go out and work as hard as I possibly could.
It was a good learning experience for me.
But I also feel that it was an amazing experience for the nursing staff.
I saw so many different things in the nursing home and the people that were there.
They were so welcoming and they were always looking out for the best interests of their patients.
I loved working with these people.
I always thought they were amazing, and so glad I was able to have the experience of working with them and sharing my expertise with them that I have.
What was the most difficult part about working at home with dementia patients?
The hardest part was having to watch them walk by.
The biggest thing is watching them.
I would try to be as quiet as possible and not say a word.
They would just keep walking by and I would have to look away.
It has been a really tough thing.
When I was there, there were no signs of any other patients with the condition.
So it was like being a part of a zombie movie, you know?
And you were just trying to keep them from going by, and that was really difficult.
And then there was
