Quality of Life Study

Individuality

Mr. Peters served in WWII and was recently admitted to the local nursing home.  The QoL.SRI identified a low score in the individuality domain due in part to the fact that Mr. Peters felt that the staff took little interest in his military service and life prior to coming to the nursing home.  The QoL.CP prompted the staff social worker to meet with the resident and talk about his military experience.

Comfort and Functional Competence

Mrs. Miller experienced a degenerative physical condition.  She was under pain management but the QoL.SRI revealed low scores in the comfort and functional competence domains.  During the QoL.SRI, Mrs. Miller discussed other pain relieving techniques that helped her condition.

Quality of Life Study

Mrs. Adams did not feel adjusted to the new nursing home even after three months.  The QoL.SRI revealed a low score in the relationship domain.  The QoL.CP (care plan) prompted the staff to engage the resident in conversation about her preferred routine in an effort to create a more positive relationship between the resident and staff members.  Mrs. Adam's relationship score increased from baseline to 90 and remained stable at 180 day.

Meaningful activities

Mr. Jones rarely left his room to attend activities. Mr. Jones' baseline assessment failed to register a score for meaningful activities domain. After implementing the QoL.CP for 90 days, Mr. Jones was able to discuss his interactions with the activities department with some detail and registered a score for the domain that was close to the facility average.

Security

Mr. Smith often found himself afraid because he felt the staff spoke harshly to him.  The QoL.CP prompted the staff to speak more slowly to the resident, with a softer tone of voice as well as focusing on positive experiences when working with the resident.
