As a caregiver working with the same 89 year old gentleman for the past four years, I quickly became acquainted with his Geriatric Care Manager, Jan Norby.
I work for a non-medical caregiving company and am limited in what I can do for Mr. G and his medical needs. I prepare his meals, help with this his bath and dressing, provide medication reminders and help keep his house clean. There have been a number of times that I have been concerned about his medical conditions, and his need for needing further medical care. This is where I most count on Jan as a seasoned geriatric nurse to help me. She comes regularly to check his vital signs and well being and goes with me to his doctor’s appointments. I follow her advice and I appreciate having a teammate in caring for this very special gentleman to me.
