PLUGGED iN @ THE ROBBiNS Thriving at Home: Keeping Loved Ones Out of The Hospital

October 6 @ 7:00 pm

A critical element of maintaining health and happiness during recovery from an illness or while living with chronic illness is to ensure everything is being done so a person does not have a hospital admission or readmission. Dave Tasto, author of Thriving at Home: A Handbook for Preventing Hospital Stays, and owner of Assisting Hands Home Care, will share how to help keep your home as safe as possible, specific actions you can take to manage aspects of your health at home, common reasons why older adults use the emergency room, and how to reduce those incidents. Dave will also share tips for when to escalate a situation to your healthcare professional, when going to the hospital is essential, how to prepare for a hospital stay in the COVID-19 era and more. There will also be a Question & Answer session – joining Dave on the call will be Elayna Hebert, director of client care for Assisting Hands Home Care.  Register for this Zoom event via Eventbrite
