Elevate Eldercare

Mar 23, 2022

March of every year is declared “National Women’s Month”. The National Women’s History Alliance designates a yearly theme for Women’s History Month…and this year it is “Women Providing, Healing, Promoting Hope”.  This theme is “both a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during this ongoing pandemic and also a recognition of the thousands of ways that women of all cultures have provided both healing and hope throughout history.”

In this edition of “Let Me Say This About That” we highlight three women that have spent their careers working to provide the best possible care and environment for people living in skilled nursing. 

Dr. Alexis McKenzie:
- Who Cares for the Caregivers? (Episode 139)

Jane Rohne:
- Emphasizing the Living in Senior Living (Episode 140)

Dr. Eleanor Feldman Barbera:
- Building Morals into Long-Term Care (Episode 141)

Marla and Mary explore PTSD, what it is and what are the signs you may be experiencing it.  We discuss mindfulness and how to meditate.  Have you heard of Reiki? Alexis is a Reiki Master – we look at what it is and its health benefits for people. We also discuss why physical and mental health should receive equal attention and training in skilled nursing.
