When experts in the medical field are faced with a challenging question or complex issue, they often turn to trusted colleagues for professional input and support. Dr. Leslie Kernisan, a board-certified geriatrician and clinical instructor at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), Department of Medicine, tackles difficult topics on a regular basis – in the classroom, at her own private practice, and online, through her educational blog, aimed at providing information and guidance to caregivers of older adults.
For her latest article, Dr. Kernisan contacted Linda Fordini-Johnson, Founder and Executive Director of Eldercare Services, to gain Linda’s knowledge and wisdom. In this blog post, Dr. Kernisan offers advice, along with Linda’s recommendations, to a husband caring for his wife who has Alzheimer’s.
Spousal caregiving can be extremely stressful and emotionally draining, but Linda has proven to be an invaluable resource in the realm of geriatric care management, having touched the lives of countless families with her decades of experience and passion for helping others.
