IMG 4854Dr. Rita Jablonski-Jaudon and her team tested ways to provide mouth care to persons with moderate and severe dementia who resisted care. The study was funded by the National Institutes of Health/National Institute of Nursing Research (R01NR012737).  We are sharing this video in the hopes that family caregivers may find some of the techniques helpful. Although the strategies were used with mouth care, some of the strategies can be used with other activities of daily living. Dr. Jablonski is currently working on new videos that will help family caregivers with bathing and dressing. She is interested in your feedback and can be reached at
