Older adult residents of nursing homes (NHs) rely primarily on nursing staff for day to day interpersonal relationships. However, nursing staff are challenged in providing person centered care by heavy workloads, high turnover rates, and limited training. Conceptually, person centered care includes six dimensions (personhood, person knowledge, autonomy and choice, comfort care, interpersonal relationships, and supportive environments. This pilot study explored the effects of digital photo displays of historical photographs of NH residents (N=6), designed to provide staff with continuous bedside reminders of each resident's personal history and personhood to improve interpersonal relationships with staff. Photos of each resident participant's historical past were provided by family members and scanned into electronic photo frames. Prior to displaying the frames, residents were audio recorded during two hour sessions of morning care to collect representative examples of their communication with nursing staff. Recording was repeated two weeks after the photo frames were displayed in each resident's room. It was hypothesized that the digital photo displays would increase staff person centered communication as well as resident engagement in conversations with staff. Transcripts of the communication recordings were coded for Interpersonal versus task-oriented (instrumental) content of staff communication. Resident engagement in conversation was coded by counting the number and proportion of resident words and utterances (statements) in the conversations. Paired t-tests were used to evaluate changes in the communication measures between baseline recording and after the photo frames were instituted. Results of these preliminary analyses will be reported. Personalized continuous photo displays are inexpensive, easily implemented, and may complement other person centered interventions. Residents may also benefit from reminiscence with family and staff. If successful, digital photo frames may be implemented to improve person centered communication and care in long term care settings.
