Many of our frail elders are no able to get to a providers office and thus are receiving little or poorly coordinated care. Families are often overwhelmed by the complexity of the healthcare system. I believe as healthcare providers we need to help patients and families understand their healthcare choices and be active partners in their care. I also feel we need to include the daily caregivers when applicable in the overall care-plan. This care coordination is critical for our frail elders and as a provider I am committed to working as a team member to provide comprehensive and thoughtful care.
