Understanding Restorative Care Part 1: Introduction to Restorative Care


The goal of restorative care nursing is to promote greater functioning and independence for the resident, which in turn can restore their hope, dignity, and well-being. To achieve this, it is important to develop a Restorative Care Program that addresses the resident's individual needs. This program guides RNAs on developing a care plan using MDS 3.0 guidelines that structure the program into two categories: Technique, such as range of motion and splinting, and Training & Skills Practice, such as walking, eating, communication, and grooming.

The program also describes the responsibilities and skills required of the Restorative Nurse Aide, Program Coordinator, and Skilled Therapists. Each one plays a valuable role in providing optimal restorative care to the resident.


After completing this course, the learner should be able to:
  • List some of the basic goals of restorative care
  • Describe the duties of a restorative care program coordinator
  • Give examples of restorative care practices performed by an RNA
  • Give examples of causes that may result in a loss or decline in functioning
  • Give examples of residents who may qualify for restorative care
  • Describe some of the main benefits of a restorative care program
