This battle is not for the faint of heart. The battle I speak of does not roar but whimpers on in homes and skilled nursing facilities across our nation. It is the battle for getting extended therapy for those rehabilitating from acute injury and those suffering from chronic degenerative diseases.
The former need therapy to get back to normal function and the latter need ongoing therapy to simply maintain what they have and prevent further deterioration. In both cases, getting as much therapy as possible is critical to quality of life.
For this interview, we talked with the Director of Education Charlotte King-Mills, whom Grace Care has known as the friendly face behind many of the local San Diego educational events and programs. She has a true passion and calling for her work and it shows immediately upon meeting her. Charlotte has welcomed us with open arms into the Parkinson’s Association community and we are glad to be a part of the wonderful educational events and programs that she leads.
This month Grace Care features an organization that is very near and dear to our hearts. The Parkinson’s Association is raising awareness, offering support and delivering tools to help those who have been affected by Parkinson’s disease. Grace Care continues to be a part of their many educational workshops and fundraising events. Many of our clients are affected by this disease, and so we hope to also raise awareness with this featured interview.
Each month Grace Care likes to recognize a very special, dedicated and hard working San Diego caregiver. This month we share with you the story of Elizabeth Alcaraz who has been with Grace Care since the beginning. We hold a very special place for her in our hearts and appreciate all of the care and kindness she has brought to many of our clients over the years.
Congratulations Elizabeth on being nominated as Grace Care’s July 2014 Caregiver of the Month. You are a true example of an outstanding caregiver and we are thankful to have you continue to be a part of our team!
