Instructions

  • Start the huddle by showing staff members your chosen video. Then, using the guiding questions, facilitate a discussion about the video and the strategies it provided.

After this huddle staff should be able to:

  • Describe how dementia can change a person’s brain.
  • Explain why the strategies shown in the video are effective.
  • Apply the strategies shown in the video to improve their interactions with people living with dementia.

Notes to the huddle leader

  • This safety huddle should be offered to all staff who interact with care recipients living with dementia. This includes support staff such as housekeeping, laundry, food services, maintenance, janitorial, recreation, and dietary.
  • Encourage staff to discuss how these strategies can benefit their own health, safety, and wellbeing. For example, consider how the strategies can help staff build trust, foster positive interactions, and support care recipients
    who are demonstrating responsive behaviours.

Guiding Questions

  • What were your key take-aways from this video?
  • Which strategies shown in the video do you already use? Do they work? How could you improve your approach?
  • Which strategies shown in the video are new to you? How could y ou incorporate them into your work?
