Geriatric Care Crisis Management

Sometimes we feel that things are going okay with a Senior…until they aren’t. Some situations with a Senior feel like a crisis. Situations like:

  • Falls
  • Broken hips, arms, legs, shoulders, etc.
  • Strokes
  • Heart attacks
  • Sudden onset dementia due to a urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • COVID that requires hospitalization

Your Senior has to go to the hospital. Everything is happening very quickly. You need to pause your own life to deal with it. The learning curve is steep and the next steps uncertain. It’s a crisis for everyone involved. What do you do?
