Whether you are talking to the doctor about your health or the healthcare for a family member, are you willing to ask the right questions to get the care that is needed? Many people don’t feel that they have thorough information from their medical provider, making it difficult to implement these recommendations at home.
In this video, we talked to Marguerite Parzen, RN, C-GNP, also known as a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner. She owns Boutique Care Management, offering aging life services and geriatric support. These services are focused on helping patients navigate the healthcare system to get the best treatments possible.
Is the Medical System Working for Your Family?
The reason the healthcare industry can be frustrating is that many people feel like another “number” in the system. You have personal concerns and desire individualized care, but it can be hard to find the medical professionals who will truly listen to these things.
Instead of assuming that you are stuck with subpar care, you can tap into the expertise of an Aging Life Specialist who can advocate for your needs. These services usually include a plan that combines the medical recommendations with an at-home plan that will work for your family. The plan can include a variety of things to support overall health, including medication administration, meal planning, physical therapy, exercise, and more.
Closing the Gap Between Healthcare and Implementation
It can be a challenge to implement a healthcare plan at home, but an Aging Life Specialist can offer the assistance that is needed to find a plan that will work for you. By supporting communication among a variety of professionals, the care is catered to match the preferences and needs of the individual. You deserve top-notch health and medical care, and an Aging Life Specialist can create optimal results through the resources that are available.
