Understanding the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer and dementia
This week our Caregiver Navigation Program Coordinator held a community education class entitled "Understanding the 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer and dementia". This course was taught by Claire, who is an outreach specialist with the Alzheimer's Association.
Many individuals were in attendance and had great questions regarding their situations with their loved ones. This was a great learning opportunity for members of our community, and we look forward to future educational sessions!
Pediatric Resource Kits for EMS
Through the generosity of the Southwestern Regional EMS Council, Southern Tier Health Care System has been working on assembling Pediatric Resource Kits. These kits include medical communication cards, a Pediatape, a quick tape, and a Pedi-Wheel. We are in the process of distributing one kit to each EMS agency in our region. Additionally, we are offering the opportunity for agencies to purchase additional kits or individual items if they feel this would benefit their agency. We are thankful that SWREMS supports our efforts to ensure the preparedness of our EMS providers to treat pediatric patients!
