This article explores the experiences of nursing assistants who participated in the Res-Caer Pilot Intervention. A qualitative study used a focus group methodology. An interview guide was used and data from focus groups were audiotaped and transcribed verbatim. A purposive sample of 13 nursing assistants participated in the focus groups. A total of 35 different codes were identified, and these were reduced to the following four themes: resident barriers to restorative care, facility or system barriers to restorative care, nursing assistant strategies, and system facilitators of restorative care. The study supports and adds to previous work that suggests that in order to successfully implement changes in care in nursing home settings the following issues should be addressed: real or perceived workload issues, poor communication with nursing, insufficient knowledge or education, lack of appropriate supplies, and insufficient administrative support. The findings may be used to revise the Res-Care Pilot Intervention and direct future implementation of programs in nursing home settings.
