Trends show that employees are increasingly taking on the care of elderly loved ones. With this responsibility may bring a burden into their workplace. From increased absenteeism, to decreased productivity, and a negative impact on the general health of the employee/caregiver, it can impact the bottom line.
The complexities of being an elder-caregiver can significantly affect the day-to-day responsibilities of an employee. From lost workplace productivity to personal healthcare, caregivers are sacrificing their individual goals to meet the needs of a loved one.
When a loved one is prescribed several medications, keeping track can be confusing. If medications are not carefully reviewed and a problem occurs, patients are often sent to the emergency room in a state of panic. As a caregiver, you can help your loved one stay safe and proactively manage their medications to prevent problems from occurring.
As we embark on our one hundred and thirteenth year of operations, we reflect on the past year’s efforts as we move towards a future Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio. Throughout 2014, the organization embodied change and continued to develop and implement a strategic plan that meets the needs of the communities we serve. On behalf of the organization, our staff, patients and families, thank you for your continued support.
On June 4th, Visiting Nurse Association of Ohio hosted the inaugural Rockin’ for the Cause to celebrate the mission of the organization and to honor one of Cleveland’s own. The evening gathered more than 200 guests to enjoy fine food, rockin’ music, and an extensive silent auction.
