Time & Location
About the Event
A critical element of maintaining health and happiness during recovery from an illness or while living with chronic illness is to ensure everything is being done so a person does not have a hospital admission or readmission. In this presentation, Dave Tasto, local author and owner of Assisting Hands Home Care, will share how to keep home as safe as possible, specific actions you can take to manage aspects of your health at home, common reasons why older adults use the emergency room, and how to reduce those incidents. Dave will also share tips from his book, “Thriving at Home: A Handbook for Preventing Hospital Stays,” such as when going to the hospital is essential, how to prepare for a hospital stay in the COVID-19 era, and other information.
