As care managers, we are always looking for the best therapies and professionals to help our clients. We have been interested in what used to be called “alternative medicine” for a very long time. It is now more often called “integrative medicine.” From massage and chiropractic to acupuncture and more, these “non-medical” interventions always seemed to address important aspects of our health that typically are overlooked or minimized in Western medicine. It is a wonderful shift that many health systems and health insurances are now recognizing the value of integrative medicine and complimentary alternative medicine, better known as “CAM.”
I struck up a perfunctory conversation with a physical therapist this past week. He began our dialogue as if I was no more than nuisance d’jour, but at some point deciding that I warranted interest, the therapist began enthusiastically sharing his dream of having a full-sized pool where clients could receive hydrotherapy.
This month we proudly introduce you to another one of our very talented San Diego caregivers. Maribel Larios was nominated as our May 2015 caregiver of the month! We sat down with Maribel to find out more about her passion caring for others.
The entire Grace Care Management team thanks you Maribel for all that you do for our clients!
