I love my grandma dearly. She's still going strong, living independently in a ranch-style house. But while her stubbornness may be the reason she lives such full and active lifestyle, it's also a trait that almost cost her big-time when she had a "health scare" a few years ago.
It's that time of year again, the when our hospitals and nursing facilities start to fill up with patients suffering from new fractures, falls, pneumonia and other cardio-pulmonary diseases. However, have we ever thought to provide additional therapy services to our residents (and their family members) who plan to go out for the holidays?
