    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.

    Traditions & Progress – Flowing in Balance

    in Spirituality

    Join Sharon Rainbow Eagle & Jim Graywolf - Eaglewolf - for another powerful broadcast of Healing Mirror Holders Radio on Sunday, 12/21 at 1 PM MST, 3 PM EST, 8 PM London and 10 PM Israel time for an energetic show about a new way of energy and action – combining traditions and progress.


    Some people believe that tradition and progress cancel each other out - we will talk about how those two work together in synergy & symbiosis. It's clear that in order to move on as a race we need to let go of the any negative emotions from past experiences that held us back and may still hold us back.  Traditions are all about the experiences and teachings that did not hold us back, but allowed us to work with all of creation on Earth.


    Progress need not be a lack of tradition either; we will elaborate about what is progress and its importance to our flourishing. Progress and tradition hand in hand now - we invite YOU to share some of the traditions from all around the worlds' medicine wheel.


    As Spirit Twins, Sharon & Jim constantly work on a balance that is being reflected by Mother Earth and Father Sky. Tradition and science being combined. This makes relation-shifts now important more than ever! And so, we ask you, Healing Mirror Holders, spirit families, to help us to learn more about those changes and to be able to bring those teachings for those who are ready for the next generations. After all, we are all one!


    We will see you soon.

    Conversations In Customer Care with Corey Poirier

    in Health

    Customer Service is something that I am always talking about.  Working within the senior care industry I marvelled at how Customer Service took on many forms.  I truly believe that my experiences with residents, family members and care professionals is what has shaped my view of Customer Care.


    Today, I will be talking with Corey Poirier, author, speaker and radio host about creating A+ Customer Experiences.  I also hope to ask him how being a musician and stand up comedian has helped him to hone his craft of speaking and how these 2 things have influenced how he approaches Customer Interactions.


    Learn more about Corey Poirier.

    Amanda Brooks Broken Neck and Systemic Failure of the US Health Care System

    in Politics Progressive

    Amanda Brooks' and Jill Brenneman's lives were forever changed when Percy Isgitt's negligence caused the plane he was flying to crash, badly injuring both of his passengers. Amanda saw multiple US surgeons with varying, but largely poor results. All appointments were paid for in cash out of her pocket as she has no insurance and Percy Isgitt, the responsible party, refused to pay.  


     


    Amanda recently had her images read in consult with a non-US specialist who viewed the same images as the US doctors and observed what the other doctors missed. Objective imaging showed a non-displaced cerebral fracture in her cervical spine as a result of the plane crash, along with 2 herniated discs in her cervical vertebrae, and a cerebral bleed.  


     


    US doctors, allegedly the best in the world, missed the cervical fracture. What is a cervical fracture? It is a broken neck. Instead, the doctors wanted to follow their typical US "conservative care:" start with anti inflams, PT, oral steroids, injected steroid, and only after all of those options were exhausted to go to surgery.  All conveniently running up billable units paid for by Amanda. Amanda went outside of the US health care system, got a surgeon who took an hour with her and explained each aspect of her injury and told what we knew. There is no solution to her neck injuries other than surgery.  


     


    One minute before the plane crash Amanda was a very healthy 30-something woman. One minute after the plane crash Amanda had a brain bleed, 2 herniated discs in her neck, and a broken neck. Yet doctors and attorneys were confused about the injuries and confused about how they transpired. 


    Malpractice, bias, misogyny of health care providers and the failure of US health care.
