Gary Barg - Editor-in-chiefWhat We Need From the Pros

I heard today from my good friend Teresa, who is one of the most caring health professionals I have ever met. Teresa is an RN and truly beloved by her clients and co-workers alike. Over the past few months, she had been complaining of periodic chest pains; but, of course, didnít want to give up a single day of helping her patients to care for herself. It was only when cornered by her co-workers, who said they would bar her from the care facility if she didnít, that she got checked by her doctor. The cardiologist informed her that she had gotten to him just in time. Everything is fine now and Teresa will be back at work soon, but with a much better idea of how she needs to learn to care for herself as well as she cares for her patients...read more

Sharing Wisdom

From Holly
in Corona

With our elderly, we just can't expect speed; they are not going to move any faster, whether we are frantic or not. What I find helpful is a gentle touch to a hand or shoulder while you are directing them to the next step. Also, a very soft and gentle voice while speaking slowly. This calms them and reassures their trust in you. Keep the anxiety to a minimum for you and them. Patience is on the top of the list.

From Dd
in Canada

I normally give my mom her pain pill between 4:30 and 5:30 a.m. I seem to catch the pain before she starts her day. I accidently slept in today and gave the pill to her at 7:30. She was in a lot of pain. I make a schedule on when to give her the pills because the pain seems to circle around to the same time everyday most days.
