Another problem for her was lack of care coordination. She had so many doctors, but no one was in charge of her care, so problems that could be solved for her, were not getting attention. That’s why Comfort Keepers has Registered Nurses and Geriatric Care Managers on board. So we can make sure people in our care get the right care.
I can’t get that poor woman out of my mind. I know so many people who could be helped by what we do. That’s why I’m a Comfort Keeper.
