Thrilled About Participation In Suburban Hospital Resource Fair

Seniors Helping Seniors® 20 Mar 2024

Seniors Helping Seniors® Bethesda was honored to participate in the Suburban Hospital Resource Fair yesterday. This was a special opportunity for hospital case management, therapy departments, crisis/behavioral health, and other hospital staff to learn about community resources and services for their patients. Other participants included distinguished organizations such as the Alzheimer’s Association, National Institute of Mental Health, Montgomery County Aging and Disability Resource Unit (ADRU), and the Jewish Council for the Aging (JCA). Seniors Helping Seniors® Bethesda was privileged to be among the few homecare agencies invited to this event.

Seniors Helping Seniors® Bethesda used this as an opportunity to showcase our dementia care for the Suburban Hospital team. We explained how our caregivers overcome resistance and build relationships with people with dementia, and how these relationships enable us to provide meaningful care to clients with dementia.

We also explained some of the unique aspects of Seniors Helping Seniors® Bethesda that make us great at caring for people with dementia, including:

  • Professional Expertise – our supervising nurse is a trained psychiatric nurse who provides caregivers with guidance and insight to help them navigate the difficulties of caring for someone with dementia.
  • Specialized Training – we enroll all caregivers in a specialized dementia care training program that was recognized by the Alzheimer’s Association.
  • Purposeful Attire – our caregivers wear ordinary clothing instead of scrubs or uniform.

The Resource Fair was a great opportunity to communicate with the staff at Suburban Hospital. Thank you Suburban Hospital for including Seniors Helping Seniors® Bethesda in this great event! We look forward to working with the Suburban Hospital team to care for seniors in the Bethesda area.
