Overview

Every long-term care setting has the potential to foster healthier and happier lives for the older adults who reside there. Mental health practitioners are uniquely positioned to serve as critical change agents in these communities. This book shows how mental health practitioners can use their full range of skills to create systems that are more supportive and engaging for residents, while also providing the staff with greater opportunities for professional growth and meaning. To illustrate what is possible, the authors explore an innovative practice model that incorporates consultation, training, and interdisciplinary team leadership, in addition to traditional direct care services, to enhance the wellbeing of older adult residents. Readers will also find practical information about Medicare and reimbursement for direct mental health services.
