Making Decisions about Restraint in Dementia and Elderly Care

Making Decisions about Restraint with Older People in Care

This is a video produced by the social care institute for excellence about restraint with older people in care services, which we use regularly on our courses to prompt discussion and questions, elicit opinions and get the conversation started.

Restraining someone can stop them living the life they would choose. But by getting to know a care home resident, staff can achieve that delicate balance between the duty to care with the need to protect. This video explores how staff can make decisions to minimise the use of restraint
