The Bureaucracy of Care & Seniors

Today our discussion on Conscious Caregiving with L & L we have gathered an international panel to discuss the bureaucracy of care and seniors. It was abundantly clear that care for our seniors around the world needs more attention. Although we did find some things working well, the list and reasons for better care were long and consistent. We would love to hear your thoughts and solutions so please feel free to reach out to Lance A. Slatton and Lori La Bey at Conscious Caregiving with L & L.
