    What is Primary Medical Care for the Homebound Elderly?

    in Business

    On October 22, at Noon, my guest will be Dr. Jomarie Zeleznik.  Dr. Zeleznik is Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. From 1995 until 2004 she trained geriatric fellows, internal medicine and family medicine residents, and medical students at Montefiore Medical Center. She is published in the geriatric and palliative care literature on subjects including pressure ulcers, communication between doctors and health care proxies and aging physiology. Dr. Zeleznik established Comprehensive Geriatric Care in 2004 as an office-based solo medical practice with home visits to for those patients who because they became homebound could no longer travel for primary medical care in the office. Informed by the experience of being one of the many hands-on caregivers for her own home-bound mother who died at home of complications of Parkinson's disease and the challenges of obtaining care in the home, Dr. Zeleznik remade Comprehensive Geriatric Care as direct primary care practice which provides accessible and individualized primary and palliative care to those elderly who cannot leave their homes.  Dr. Zeleznik is a co-founder of The CareGivers’ Project, a not for profit which is an on and off-line organization where caregivers for elderly can express and reflect about the complexities of being a caregiver through written and visual material and get-togethers.

    Going outside your comfort zone for medical care

    in Health

    Mike and Joyce chat about the adventure of going outside your comfort zone for medical care.

    Joyce has been hosting a family from a village on the west coast of Ecuador who are in Boston to get life-saving heart surgery for their son.  Not only have they traveled a great distance, but Boston has very different weather than the tropical weather of Ecuador, the food is entirely different, and they don't speak any English.

    They also chat about some of the highlights of the shows of 2014, and foreshadow next week's Christmas week show about considering clinical trials, and the resources that are available to assist you in finding and joining clinical trials that might be helpful in your situation.

    Many thanks for listening in 2014, we hope you enjoy next week's show, and that you will be with us in 2015, happy and in good health.

    Be well, and be a Powerful Patient.

    Self Care Matters

    in Self Help

    Do you incorporate fun in your daily life?  Do you take a proactive role in your health?  When was the last time you took a nap?  Or, how about the last time you exercised your right to say, 'no'?  Some feel it's taboo to put 'self' first.  But, if 'self' isn't healthy and happy, then what we think we're giving to others is pretty much crumbs in comparison to what we could be giving - gifting.

    Infinite Vibrations is honored and excited to talk with Anana Harris Parris about the movement she's pioneered and currently steering on behalf of Self Care.  Take a listen.  You may want to start moving with her. For more information, visit www.selfcareday.com and/or www.selfcareagency.com.
