Be #EReady (From Alzheimer.ca)

Be #EReady
Whether planned or unexpected, a visit to the ER is never a pleasant experience. For people with dementia, who may be frightened and confused, it’s especially difficult. That’s we created a new resource to make the experience less stressful for everyone involved and guide better care. 
Be Ready for an Emergency Department Visit is a set of checklists and forms that you can fill out before a hospital visit is necessary. They provide hospital staff with a snapshot of the person with dementia and any special needs or medical requirements so they can provide more personalized care. It also offers practical tips, like having an emergency bag ready to go. 
A little advance planning goes a long way. Get started at alzheimer.ca/hospitalvisits
