We also work with the family unit, which can take time and patience. Compassionate communication with each involved family member, rooted in education, is a critical and often overlooked component to successfully managing patient care.
Geriatric care is a science and an art
Providers have to think outside of the box every day because of challenging work environments, varying staff capabilities, individual patient needs, and family desires. That is what makes our Collaborative Care approach so valuable. We ensure that all Healthcare Professionals in the PHS family, as well as our corporate partners at SNFs, long-term care facilities, and hospitals, work as an interdisciplinary team to provide the highest level of compassionate and thoughtful care for our seniors.
