So, what is a Playaway, anyway? We get this question at least a couple times a week, sometimes a lot more.
I have a question regarding an advanced level dementia resident that has high anxiety and becomes very anxious with environmental stimulation (noise, other residents that act out, loud TV’s, etc.) . He is able to express to staff when his anxiety level rises. When he does, we removed him from the chaos (stressor) and a caregiver will sit with him in a quiet place to redirect and help him to lower his anxiety.
I feel that your play away would be very effective for him. What pre-loaded program would you recommend for an advanced level dementia resident with high anxiety?
