Long Term Healthcare Expertise
Pamela has worked extensively with professionals in hospitals, nursing homes, and care communities, with home health, non-medical in-home care agencies, hospices, medical offices, and specialty providers. This experience supports long term healthcare and workplace keynote addresses and programs.
She speaks directly to consumer concerns and frustrations. Trying to navigate a healthcare system that speaks in medical terms makes it difficult for family caregivers to obtain care for elderly parents. On the other hand, long term healthcare professionals find it difficult to work with emotional family caregivers. Both sides benefit from gaining an understanding of the opposite perspective. Gaining perspective allows family caregivers and long term care professionals to focus on care for elderly parents.
The challenges of coordinating care for family members is overwhelming. Caregivers understandably lack knowledge and experience. This lack of knowledge impacts the family caregiver’s ability to juggle responsibilities. Creating work-life balance, raising children, and caring for elderly parents is a full-time job and more. Professionals working in healthcare face similar issues of time pressure and burnout.
