Biggest Challenge: Education
Response from DM:
Education is a broad subject, but having been an educator all my life, it is a subject close to my heart. Whatever the senior or caregiving issue may be, there is a way to find information and resources, especially if you are comfortable with a computer. I always recommend that if you need specific information regarding a disease or issue, (after first seeing your primary doctor), start with the national organization specific to that disease, and get all of their updated resources, brochures, and studies. After that, proceed to organizations at your state level and then seek out any local resources and group support systems in your immediate community.
On the subject of education, our company will soon be releasing an educational tool, focused specifically to anyone seeking information regarding the needs surrounding our senior population. The focus will be on how to care for the senior or frail elderly in your life, as well as how to continue to take care of yourself. As the caregiver in charge of keeping it all together, there is a need to stay informed and current. The better we educate ourselves using available resources, the easier we can make our lives. Please be on the lookout for our upcoming announcement about this exciting educational tool.
