Caregiver

MD Webinars for the Caregiver, advocate and Custodian                             “Angel Is On Your Side”

 

Our Transition team will:

1.      discuss the Continuum of Care in our health care system today.

2.       discuss safe use of medications by patients or dispensed by their families based on patients’ plans of care.

 3.       discuss processes that facilitate the safe transition of patients from one level of care to another. This would include moving home and/or changing from one practitioner to another.

 4.       discuss important care information that needs to be shared among patient, family, caregiver and healthcare providers in a timely and effective manner.

 5.      discuss ways to educate patients and families to enhance their active participation in their own care including informed decision making. We will also discuss ways to facilitate safe transitions with effective follow up care.

 6.      discuss and demonstrate responsibility, accountability, and management for the care of the patient and family/caregiver at all times in a healthcare environment.

 7.      discuss accountability of patient care as the patient is released from one healthcare provider and makes the transition to the provider receiving the patient.

1. Attention: The caregiver’s loved one may be the 27th similar case you’ve seen today; but to the caregiver, this is Mom or Dad, Sister or Lover.
2. Compassion: Be diligent in its application.
3. Time: A few moments of your undivided time is some of the strongest medicine you’ll ever administer—and it costs so very little.
4. Respect: The person pushing the wheelchair is also part-time bookkeeper, psychologist, dietitian, insurance and incontinence expert, and a full-time general in the war they are waging with this illness. They not only need your respect, they DESERVE it.
5. Dedication: Be relentless in your devotion to your craft. The caregiver has entrusted you with their most valuable asset—their loved one. You earn that trust with your skill, knowledge base and ability.
6. Honesty: The caregiver is your partner in this endeavor; they deserve (and can handle) the truth.
7. Prudence: The graceful administration of the truth is a true test of a caring professional.
8. Advocacy: Never accept less than the best your system has to offer their
loved one.
9. Understanding: The caregiver plays a pivotal role in the well-being of your patient; understanding the needs, wishes and fears of the caregiver improves your patient’s care.
10. Your well-being: Know your emotional limit and learn when to ask for help. Your loved ones as well as the caregiver’s loved one need you to remain well.
