BrandStar Entertainment's The Balancing Act on Lifetime Television is addressing the concerns of caregivers by offering expert advice on creating a safe and comfortable home environment. Kim Dennis, Hill-Rom's Group Vice President for Post Acute Care in North America, provides valuable tips and resources for viewers. The segment airs May 11thand June 12th and can also be seen on http://www.thebalancingact.com/Hill-Rom. âAs Americans age, greater numbers of women are being caught in the sandwich generation, trying to balance raising a family while caring for their aging parents,â explains Dennis. âThis growing demographic will need resources and guidance in order to properly and safely care for their loved ones.â
According to AARP, 9 out of 10 adults aged 60 or older, prefer to stay in their own home or community as they age. In order to accommodate this desire, the home environment must be adapted to meet the new special needs of patients.
On the segment, Dennis addresses topics such as creating a smooth transition from hospital to home, designing more comfortable and accessible living spaces, and ways to avoid back injuries for the caregiver.
Dennis also introduces viewers to a comprehensive resource, http://www.Hill-Rom.com, where caregivers can gain valuable information about products and services that will improve and enhance the care they can provide for their loved ones, in addition to educating them about the latest technology and medical equipment.
âWe appreciate Hill-Rom providing us with this important information,â explains Doug Campbell, Executive VP of Programming for BrandStar Entertainment, the producers of The Balancing Act TV Show. âCaregiving is a growing trend, and these tips will help families live safer, happier lives.â
