This month we share a primary caregiver’s unique perspective on the harder aspects of caring for a loved one at home. We believe that family caregivers represent about 70% of the national caregiving population. Caregivers are usually spouses and adult sons and daughters. The spouses themselves tend to be aging and facing their own health issues. The adult children are usually still working, juggling family needs and the needs of their frail mother or father, or both. Stress is the common currency of families finding themselves providing care for a loved one over a long period of time. Support is needed desperately as this is one of the most difficult jobs a family can take on.
Wounds unfortunately impact our frail elder population at large and seeking proper treatment with a skilled and experienced professional is imperative. When it come to our clients, Dr. Roger Schechter has always been our dedicated wound care specialist. After reading this interview it will be no surprise why. He is truly best-in-class and over the years we have witnessed just how much of a difference he can make in even a single visit. We thank Dr. Schechter for taking the time to help answer some important questions regarding his practice and wound care in 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 Pam Martin who has been working as a caregiver with Grace Care since 2013.
Below we feature our recent interview with Pam where she shares with us her journey as a caregiver. Congratulations Pam for your nomination and the entire Grace Care Management team thanks you for the wonderful care and compassion you show our clients!
