Easing the Anxiety of a Hospitalization
An emergency hospitalization and even a planned one can be an enormous source of emotional stress and anxiety, especially for an elderly patient.
Nurses and medical staff are well intentioned but are often stretched so thin that they do not have the time to give the comfort and reassurance that is so important for an elderly patient going through a medical crisis.
Although family is usually a patient’s first choice for emotional support and to fill in the care gaps, circumstances sometimes make it difficult or even impossible for relatives to take on this role despite their best efforts.
