It is important to remember that people with Alzheimer’s have no control of their behaviors. NA’s are responsible for promoting physical health by observing the resident’s health and reporting any potential problem. Prevent infections, follow standard precautions, and help residents wash their hands frequently. Also, promote mental and emotional health by maintaining resident self-esteem as well as routine daily exercise. Encourage independence in activities of daily living, share enjoyable activities, reward positive and independent behaviors with smiles and warm touches.
