Laura Mitchell on BBS Radio – Reaching For The Gold

“The GrandCare System helps connect elders with the world in ways designed to maximize their independence while also ensuring their safety. This technology not only tracks when they take their medication and other important health statistics. It also allows elders to send e-mails and other important correspondences without the technology frustrating or intimidating them.

Laura Mitchell serves as VP of business development for this company. She has spoken throughout the country about how digital home health can mitigate hospital admissions and otherwise have positive outcomes for elders and their family.”

Harriet Tramer is publishing journalist and a college instructor. Harriet finds that these two careers have much in common as they both demand honing communication skills every day. Over the years, however, her understanding of precisely what is meant by “communication skills” has changed exponentially. At first, she taught classes in the most traditional sense, standing in front of students. And she wrote for print media. But now she instructs her students almost exclusively online and her writing is published in print and over the web. Times have changed but the need to speak to your audience by being concise, yet intriguing, remains the same.

“How many of us will need to care for aging parents?” … “Fact filled book with easy reference. When you keep an elder in her home, she receives more personalized care than might otherwise be the case. Her world can be adapted to meet her needs, something that might not be possible within an institutional setting. Because it offers these obvious advantages among many others residential care has become a national trend. In spite of this, a strong warning seems warranted. Though it is often described in glowing terms, this arrangement demands a great deal from caregivers, placing them under considerable stress.”
