Different Cultural Backgrounds
You will come across seniors with different cultural backgrounds or different religion. They may also speak a different language. It is very important to understand their needs. Ask questions, clarify, maybe find someone who speaks the same language as that resident. See how you can assist them the best. Or maybe you ask the families, if somebody is familiar with that resident, they’ll give you a better understanding of how to handle them. This is the best way to handle the cultural diversity we see these days.
