The Ideal Nursing Home

Project description

The Ideal Nursing Home
Preamble:
Throughout the course we have stressed the importance of achieving a sense of
psychological wellness and mastering the tasks of trust, autonomy, initiative,
industry, intimacy, and generativity. Erik Erikson states that the final
psychological task is that of achieving a sense of Integrity, or feeling whole,
complete, and satisfied with your life?s achievements. Unfortunately, for many
older adults their final life experience is in a nursing home. As nursing homes
are typically run, they often do not support a feeling of integrity or psychological
wellness.
Your essay topic:
Using the information from your textbook, the Seasons of Life video and
additional library/internet research, your task for this essay is to design the ideal
nursing home. That is, make three suggestions (based in psychological
theory or research) that if implemented will create a nursing home that
promotes physical and psychological health and allows the elder to face
death with dignity.
NOTE: It is important that you remind yourself of the factors promoting resilience
and psychological wellness in people of all ages. Also, you may find some
parallels between the qualities of a high quality nursing home with the research
concerning high quality day care for children.
