Abstract

A hospital-based community mental health center in Minneapolis developed a consultation and training program for nursing home staff members in order to improve the care and treatment of aged residents. A social-worker-and-nurse team provided consultations that were individually planned to meet the needs of the staff of each facility. The team and staff members met weekly for eight to ten sessions to discuss topics related to the aged. Evaluation by the project staff, nursing home staff, and an independent group showed that the center successfully developed a mental health intervention system.
