After enduring 3 nightmares hospital stays with his dad who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, Gary recognized that there needed to be a better way for staff to recognize the special needs of his father.
On today’s show, we are going to talk with Gary and Margaret about how one, simple, identification bracelet can go a long way in providing comfort and security for patients, caregivers and a hospital staff. Yet this is more than just putting a bracelet on an Alzheimer’s patients: this project is about training, educating and recognizing the special needs of Alzheimer’s patients to an entire hospital staff!
Gary’s project is a prime example of how Caregivers can have an impact on polices and procedures because Caregivers are always the ones in the trenches! Through our conversation with Gary and Margaret, we will all learn how to ‘Be A Healthy Caregiver!’.
