One of our recent polls focused on caregiving. Our question: What makes caregivers an important and integral part of care for a family member recovering and rehabilitating from an amputation? Seventy percent said caregivers are the patient’s best advocate. Ten percent said caregivers know the patient’s needs best, and caregivers can act as a buffer with the O&P staff, as well for the patient.
Our Twitter followers were unanimous: They all said caregivers are the patient’s best advocate.
Since autumn officially starts today and the leaves are beginning to show their colors, our latest poll asked, “What’s your favorite thing about this time of year? The colors and the crisp, fresh air are the best part for 74 percent of our respondents, 11 percent each said they love pumpkin spice lattes and that it is their favorite time of year; five percent said they look forward to Halloween. Our Twitter followers went for the pumpkin spice lattes, 100 percent.
