Join us on Tuesday August 27th at 1:00pm (est) for a conversation with Gary LeBlanc from Common Sense Caregiving, founder of the Alzheimers Dementia Wristband Hospital Project and Margaret Doerr, CEO of Nursing at Brooksville Regional Hospital in Brooksville, Florida.
After enduring 3 nightmares hospital stays with his dad who was diagnosed with Alzheimers, 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 Alzheimers patients: this project is about training, educating and recognizing the special needs of Alzheimers patients to an entire hospital staff!
Gary's project is a prime example of how Caregivers can have an impact on 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!'.
