It is important to include the client in their care as much as possible, as this empowers a person to make positive choices. I believe medication consistency is very important, but also lifestyle choices. These may include sleep hygiene, exercise or activity level, and a healthy diet. Also, with the client's permission, involving support people for them can be very helpful. These are important for all people.
Having a complete discussion and assessment with visits is crucial in managing medications and overall health.
I enjoy traveling, near and far! Being on or near water- lakes or an ocean- is very enjoyable. I like exercise, geneology, crafting, golf, reading, and time with family and friends, including 2 kittens!
