Challenging behaviour in a home is disruptive and difficult for both residents and staff. Positive behaviour strategies not only reduces stress in the home, but also equips employees with the skills to manage agitations and anxieties which can lead challenging behaviours.
Research has shown positive behaviour strategies (PBS) are highly effective in preventing and addressing challenging behaviours that may occur in a residents day to day living. A PBS plan reduces stress, clears up much-needed time for caring, improves overall resident outcomes and creates a best care practice bespoke to the individuals needs.
As residents embrace more prosocial behaviours, PBS also supports families, and impacts on our society as a whole. In recent years, PBS have gained significant recognition internationally and have been progressively adopted by University Care with nationally accredited training in place.
