    Isoken Ogbomo Helps Family Caregivers

    Isoken Ogbomo Helps Family Caregivers

    Isoken Ogbomo’s describes what her company provides especially in terms of her geriatric scientific care post-hospital rehabilitation program. Due to shortened stays (demanded by insurance companies) in an expensive hospital a study completed in 2020 showed that 41.4 percent of elderly Americans discharged from a hospital, required readmittance for further treatment within seven days. Isoken explained the issues that occur when a discharged person is passed over to Medicare therapy. Medicare therapists will only be in the home for a few sessions over a four to six weeks period following a hospital stay to instruct the patient about what exercises they need to be doing and then leave them alone to do the therapy on their own. There is no way the patient can recover in a timely manner through “in home care therapy” alone so the patient will medically decline and get readmitted to the hospital while the family caregiver is stressed, losing time from work, and getting ill from the stress of caregiving. In this podcast Isoken explains her program that is focused on improving overall health and managing symptoms to avoid a return trip to the emergency room, or hospital. It is designed specifically for the aging population. It offers transitional care management, post hospital post rehab care, chronic illness management and disease specific caregiving at home. The program helps chronically ill patients to get home, stay home, stay out of the emergency room, manage their chronic symptoms, feel better faster, age in place and thrive regardless of any life limiting conditions. Business owners, or busy executives who have become caregivers with parents in need of in-home care want their aging parents to receive the best in-home care, so they can continue with their career, care for their own children and have less interruption to their own lives. Isoken’s company has collaborated with Stella Nsong’s efforts to reach out to businesses to bring awareness to these critical work issues. Together they can help corporate America handle the upcoming increase in their employees dealing with an aging parent at home with our platform, careworklearn.com.

    Lou Basinal Works to Solve the Elder-Care Crisis in Corporate America

    Lou Basinal Works to Solve the Elder-Care Crisis in Corporate America

    As ‘Baby Boomers’ reach their senior years and require more medical attention, the pressure on the elder-care industry in this country is reaching a critical impasse and rapidly approaching the ‘Elder Care Cliff.’ When a parent, or loved one needs care, it places a tremendous burden on the families. Yet, jobs are important, and we all have to work. Entrepreneurs must attend to their businesses to maintain their incomes. Employees of corporations try to juggle both family care giving, their jobs and their careers. Children’s ball games and school activities still need a parent to be in the stands. All the while, the caregiver needs to assure their aging mother, or father receive the right care. “Part of our advocacy is for family members, or children. It’s more difficult for them to play the dual roles of caregiver and family member. Difficulties arise when children try to do both.” Be sure to listen to this podcast for all of the valuable insights she provides about the new platform, CareWorkLearn.com and how this can benefit corporations. Lou Basinal Lou Basinal, a Registered Nurse and Senior Care Specialist in Sacramento, and owner of Age In Place Sacramento is working to solve the elder care crisis in Northern California. Lou also serves as the Area Director of the Northern California Care Planning Council. “I am part of the elder-care nursing program in California. We are working to prepare individuals to better handle senior citizens within their own families and advocate for the elder care system as it nears the ‘Elder Care Cliff.’ Through her agency ‘Age In Place Sacramento,’ Lou provides nurse-managed care for the elderly and caregiving solutions for their busy adult children. Existing nursing homes and long-term medical care facilities have been overrun by COVID and the ever-growing number of aging Americans. When a chronically ill patient is released from hospital care, two questions must be asked, where will they go and who will take care of them?
