Your patient; our mother
On 22 oktober 2015 the book ‘Your patient; our mother -A plea to care together in a nursing home’, written by Mieka Vroom, has been published by Publish House Parterre.
The book is a personal account of what a family experienced during the ten years that their mother was admitted in a nursing home. But it is also a plea to bring together the professional knowledge of healthcare providers and the experience and knowledge of family. Only then a better quality of care for the patient/relative is possible. But it’s not easy. A nursing home has its own dynamics and family also has her oddities. Nevertheless, cooperation is essential to achieve a more personalized care.
