Abstract: This five-segment video depicts a multidisciplinary approach to the planning, implementation, and evaluation of a restraint-free environment for the frail elderly. In each of the segments, the special needs of the vulnerable older adult for safety and comfort are presented, leaving the audience with an appreciation for the team effort necessary for the delivery of care to the geriatric population. The strength of the video lies in its realistic portrayal of Concerned family members, a caring staff, and once-distraught but now restraint-free older adults. Although all members of a multidisciplinary team would benefit from viewing the entire video, it could be stopped after each segment for group discussion.
