Why mini-lessons on safety?

-In my 10 years as a medical SLP working in the various sites such as the SNF, LTC, and Memory Units in AL/IL facilities, mini-lessons were the most effective tool I utilized with my patients with mild cognitive deficits and early stages of Dementia who had limited safety awareness.

-However, I could never find lessons that were critical and pertinent to my patients immediate needs. So 10 years ago I made this set of mini-lessons which I continue to utilize to this day.

-As I began presenting my mini-lessons, each of my patients found them engaging because I introduced them through social conversations, scripts, and lesson reviews...and who does not love a social exchange?

-Statistics indicate: 1) 300,000 older adults are hospitalized with hip fractures each year. 2) Falls are the #1 cause of traumatic head injuries (TBI). 3) Falls are the leading cause of death among people 65 and older (9,500 deaths per year)...now that is scary!

-So the questions I asked myself 10 years ago were, “What can I do to improve safety awareness on all my patients?, How can I contribute to their quality of life?”

This set includes:
1. Bathroom/Toilet Safety
2. Bedroom Safety
3. Dining Room Safety
