This week’s Caregiver Coffee will address – When an Older Person is Hospitalized.
A hospital stay can be stressful for older adults. Aside from the illness or injury that required a hospital admission, older adults may not eat as well, especially if they need assistance eating, may not get enough sleep and their mental and cognitive state could decline. They also may need more assistance when they’re discharged from the hospital.
During this session, we’ll talk about the challenges older people face when they’re hospitalized and what caregivers can do to help.
