Abstract
  • Video Respite (VR) refers to a series of videotapes designed to engage cognitively impaired individuals so that caregivers can have opportunities for respite. Previous work has evaluated the impact of VR with family caregivers. This study assessed use of VR in special care units (SCUs) for persons with dementia. The foci of the study were 10 SCUs and the individual staff members caring for the residents. The findings suggest VR is more likely to be used in SCUs with relatively higher levels of organization and lower levels of conflict. In addition, resident agitation was found to be significantly lower after VR use. Implications for future evaluation of Video Respite in special care units are discussed.
