Thoughtful Hospitalization: Free Online Workshop
Thoughtful Hospitalization in a free online workshop that offers a personal action plan to families and caregivers of people with dementia to prevent hospitalization, navigate hospitalization, transition home safely, lessen the chance for hospital readmission, and set up for the best recovery possible at home. The webinar will be led by Mike Splaine and Kate Gordon, Consultants specializing in Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Individuals with dementia can experience exceptional challenges and stressors during hospital stays such as higher risk for falls, dehydration, malnutrition, untreated pain, medication-related problems, and physical restraints. As a result of these stressors many dementia patients experience functional decline that does not typically resolve following discharge. Individuals with dementia are also vulnerable to inappropriate referrals to psychiatric facilities and nursing home placements following a hospital stay.
Thoughtful Hospitalization offers the necessary tools to prevent hospitalization, prepare for a hospitalization, and navigate discharge and post-hospital care so that people with dementia and their loved ones can feel prepared, safe, and capable of navigating a hospital stay.
Registrants will receive a hospital “go bag”, handouts and access to recordings for the sessions. Each will be asked to do a short pre and post workshop survey to aid us in making ure we are providing high quality education.
Thoughtful Hospitalization upcoming workshops will be offered on several dates and times via Zoom. You can register for any one of the following dates: 6/9, 6/17, 6/18, 6/21, 6/22.
