Caregiver Support, Protecting You and Your Loved One From Poor Hospital Care, and Helpful Caregiving Videos
Dear :

Being a caregiver can be exhausting and rewarding at the same time. Raise your hand if you’ve ever felt any or all of the below?
  • As you look at the list of tasks to complete for your loved one and then your own to do list, the result can be feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes you feel defeated before you start the day.
  • And then there are the family members who are great at telling you what to do but not great at helping. Or they disagree with everything just to be difficult and cause drama.
  • The person for whom you care may have a difficult personality. Behaviors may be challenging because of health issues or memory loss. Physically caring for them may be difficult.
Many caregivers feel the same way. Frozen. Sitting in the lounge chair staring out the window and hoping for a few moments of peace. Always too much to do, too much rushing around. Emotionally drained.

Agree?

Then you’ll LOVE this opportunity to receive a little inspiration, an ear to bend, and someone to give you confidence in your abilities to care for a loved one or to care for yourself. Plus, a tip on making sure hospitals don’t fail to provide care.

I’ve been a family caregiver and a professional caregiving advocate for over twenty years, I know that a positive outlook can make all the difference.

Older Adults Placed at Healthcare Risks by Hospitals Seeking to Avoid Financial Readmissions Penalties
On October 2, 2012 the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, through the Affordable Care Act Section 3025, began implementing policies to reduce hospital re-admissions by older adult Medicare beneficiaries. (1)  What this means for older adults is that hospitals are financially penalized if there is a return to any hospital within 30 days of discharge for specific conditions. Surprise exists that hospitals have found a way around the readmission penalties placing the healthcare of older adults at risk.
