THE All About Seniors Healthcare Notebook Guide is HERE!!!!

June 6, 2023

The All About Seniors Healthcare Notebook Guide is here to help the seniors and caregivers create their own personal Healthcare Notebook by using this Guide. They will find that if they are prepared and are more knowledgeable as a patient, it increases their doctor’s ability to support their Quality of Life! This NOTEBOOK GUIDE will help them start the first step on a journey that will make a profound change in their future. Your participation as a local service provider will help make this notebook an invaluable tool for thousands of our community’s seniors. This Guide will provide valuable instructions for creating the senior’s own personal Healthcare Notebook—a notebook that serves as a unifying guide for all of the senior’s healthcare needs. This personal Notebook captures the senior’s health condition in one place and is easily accessible for the senior and all of their healthcare providers—allowing for a wealth of information regarding their current and past healthcare needs. Creating a personal Healthcare Notebook can start with gathering the basics, such as: • A list of current medications and dosages • A list of current medical conditions or “conditions of concern” • A Medical History • A list of healthcare providers • Emergency contact information, etc. The notebook should also include information regarding treatments, physicians, specialists, medical tests, hospitals, and other overall healthcare information. Additionally, the notebook can be used to record medical appointments, questions for their doctor, preventive measures, and general awareness, such as diet and exercise. This Guide also encourages the reader to make a point-of- contact/primary physician in order to get the best possible care. The Guide provides suggestions as to what to expect from this contact/physician and how to ask questions.

Also, attached is the
Healthcare Partner Pre-Check Appointment Guide.
Whenever you have an appointment with any healthcare provider you must be a good advocate for yourself. You should plan what you need to discuss and document questions in advance. Documenting symptoms beforehand helps make sure you get the answers you need. Time with the healthcare partner is often limited. It makes sense to understand the best way to describe your symptoms so you’re prepared for the questions the doctor will ask.
