I have been in the senior care industry for going on 14 years now and over those years I have noticed several things that make me go “Hmmm!”
Here is the first “Hmmm!” Over these last 14 years, I have spoken to, had conversations with, listened and questioned over 10,000 seniors with all types of health issues. I cannot figure why this is, but I have noticed that if a man gets a pacemaker, he does very well afterwards. His health improves and there is minimal chance of any cognitive issues or any change in what was there before getting a pacemaker. However, if a woman gets a pacemaker, she or her family will always say there is a cognitive decline directly afterwards. Why is this? I am not a medical professional but that has always been on my mind as to the why; therefore, hmmm!
More “Hmmm!” to come. What have you noticed in seniors’ health that make you go “Hmmm!”
