"I have been involved in Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facility Administration for over 30 years. I LOVE your website- the info is easy to use, and comprehensive. I typically write all of my own policies, procedures, forms etc. but since finding and joining Providers Web...I have so much more time to Direct our Operations....We have 7 licensed Homes for the Aged, Assisted Living Homes in the state of Michigan - a total of +/- 700 older persons, many with diagnoses of dementia. Just wanted to say thank you for making this information available, at such a reasonable cost!"

Personalities - Basic Training for Care Facility Staff and Caregivers

This document contains an in-depth discussion of different personalities and how to approach personality disorders. This is an excellent training tool for care givers, and care home facility staff in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and board and care facilities.

People with PD's can be difficult to care for. (See "Dealing with Difficult Personalities") People with PD's can be manipulative, display inappropriate behavior, distort information, have major boundary issues, and have no concept of normal social behavior. People with PD's can make unacceptable and unreasonable demands on their care giver(s). Often people with PD's have inadequate coping skills and can act out impulsively when under stress. One way for a caregiver to create stress is to directly disagree with a PD's ideas.
