Statistics show that pain is a huge problem in geriatric care. Many elders are in ongoing pain that's having a major negative impact on their quality-of-life.
The problem is: much of it is unknown to caregivers and not properly treated.
Reason: elders don't want to complain, don't want to be a bother, or have Alzheimer's and cannot describe their pain.
The good news is that much of this pain can be successfully treated or improved, when properly discovered and diagnosed.
This article gives you details on what to look for to determine if your elders are in pain (including those with Alzheimer's) and research-proven, evidence based caregiver programs that can help alleviate pain in your elders.
