8 Tips for Successful One-on-One Visits

involved in.

1. Put Yourself in Their Shoes - Prepare yourself mentally beforehand by spending a few minutes waiting for you to become thinking about the person; try to put yourself in their shoes. What are some hobbies or interests you can talk about? involved in. 2. Early Morning is Best - Schedule visits for early mornings when residents are more alert. Alternatively, visit mid-afternoon after lunch and rest time. Make them feel special by sending a note: "Hi Linda, if it suits you, I will be coming by tomorrow for a chat and a cup of tea!" 3. Eye Contact is Important - On arrival, look your resident in the eyes and greet them, setting the right tone with a warm greeting and then sit down in front of the resident at eye level. 4. Use Props - If you need to, bring a 'helping hand' such as a flower, some seasonal fruit, some interesting media headlines, or a home-baked biscuit. Props can trigger reminiscing and help start conversations. 5. Reduce Back ground Noise - Turn off the TV and radio and close the door if loud noises are coming through. 6. A Change of Scenery Can Be a Good Thing - If your meetings are always in the bedroom, try a change of scenery. A veranda or garden setting are good alternatives. 7. Pay Attention to Body Language - Pay attention to your resident's body language as well as your own. If you are wringing your hands or looking at the clock, it sends a message that you don't want to be there. Be genuine, your attitude will make or break a visit. If you are not there in body and soul they will sense it and become indifferent. On the other hand, if they are nodding off to sleep or avoiding eye contact, make an excuse and come back when the resident is more receptive. 8. Be Patient - If the resident has advanced dementia, be prepared to repeat conversations as needed; look at pictures in the room and ask questions, admire clothes and hair.
