Santa Fe, Salina Your News Source Salina Journal Presented by Richard A. Shillcutt Administrator REALITY CHECK When hospitalized patients and nursing home' residents become confused and disoriented, they are often treated with reality orientation. This involves having the staffs In these facilities remind residents of the day of the week, the Institution's name, the resident's own name, the weather, current events, and the like. Although research has yet to demonstrate that this strategy of identifying reminders brings improvement, It may well be a helpful technique for visiting friends and relatives. By identifying themselves, referring to mutual friends and relatives, and bringing in pictures, visitors may help nursing home residents better establish their knowledge of time and relationships. Aside from possibly helping residents, reality orientation may help visitors by lending a focus to their good intentions and giving them relevant things to talk about.

Enlightened citizens who can think and interact in society are equally important. Crime and welfare consume a large amount of our tax dollars. An underlying common characteristic in both situations is lack of a high school diploma. The cost of education is an investment that can offer prevention of these problems. Education enables a person to give to society rather than to take from it. It has always been a basic responsibility of the State Board of Education to see that all our children get a good public education.
