Project Details

Description

NARRATIVE Function focused care is an approach to care in which nurses acknowledge older adults’ physical and cognitive capabilities and integrate physical activity into all care interactions. This care approach prevents the decline in function, limited physical activity, behavioral and psychological symptoms, among other adverse outcomes in hospitalized patients with Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Dementias (ADRD). Our goal in this work is to demonstrate the efficacy of a practical and effective intervention, FFC-AC-EIT, to optimize function and physical activity and prevent adverse events among hospitalized patients with ADRD.
