Understanding Restorative Care Part 3: Restorative Care Practices


As the front-line caregiver, RNA's need to have a great level of understanding of what level of assistance the resident requires, and what they are capable of achieving on their own--and provide the right amount of care accordingly. This program provides real-life examples of Restorative Care practices, including motivation & guidance, transfer & ambulation, range of motion, splinting, feeding assistance, and assistance with ADL's. It also discusses methods and approaches for assisting individuals with Ambulation and Range of Motion.

  • Name at least 3 levels of assistance that may be given to a resident to help with ambulation

  • Name 3 types of range of motion exercises
  • Explain the goal of range of motion exercises
