and medications when there are serious or complex health problems.
I often accompany clients to their medical appointment to be sure they are seen and also heard. I can take notes, ask questions, and report back to loved ones.
I arrange and monitor in-home or facility-based caregivers to ensure
that a client's individual needs are met with efficiency and respect.
