Mental Illness and Behavior Management
Many home care agencies provide care and services to adults with a mental illness or MI. Although some consumers need specialized care, home care workers should not discount the potential impact of taking time during home visits to minimize behaviors with certain clients. Simple actions such as demonstrating emotional openness, instilling hope, and using active listening can be powerful. With practice, home care workers will feel more confident and effective using the tools described in this course.
