The treatment NHs will received immediate feedback from the Speeko App after each recording sessions
Behavioral: Speeko for Elderspeak
Speeko for Elderspeak is a communication feedback IOS application.
No Intervention: Control
The Control NHs will not receive app feedback until all recording sessions are complete.
- Change in elderspeak measured by the number of diminutives detected in participant's recorded speech. [ Time Frame: Four app recording sessions per nursing home, through study completion, 1 year. ]The number of diminutives detected by the Speeko for Elderspeak app will be correlated with manual psycholinguistic analysis to determine app accuracy. Diminutive data will be compared between the intervention and control groups and within nursing homes.
- Acceptability as measured by System Usability Scale. [ Time Frame: Survey completed after participants finish all recording sessions. At the end of the 3-month implementation period per nursing home ]A validated, 10-item industry standard survey. Questions are in 5-point Likert scale with responses from strongly agree to strongly disagree. Question scores are converted to a 0-100 total score where lower scores indicate low usability and high scores indicate greater usability.
- Evaluate the app cost by measuring wages per hour by NH role and costs associated with the Speeko for Elderspeak application. [ Time Frame: Survey completed by each nursing home after the CHATO training. By the end of the 3-month implementation period per nursing home ]The cost associated with elderspeak reduction will be calculated using primary outcomes, wage data, and application costs.
