Working with Your Healthcare Team
You are not alone in this journey.
Your entire healthcare team — which can include your primary care doctor, specialists, dietitians, therapists and a home care company — are all dedicated to helping you achieve the best outcomes possible for you or your loved one.
Be sure to reach out to them with any questions or changes in health, or with any issues related to tube feeding.
The following suggestions can help you to partner with your healthcare team:
- Communicate and report any changes in your loved one's health. Avoid telling yourself, "Oh, it's probably nothing" when your instincts tell you otherwise. Many healthcare professionals also have online portals which can make it easy to email your concerns about the person you are caring for.
- Follow instructions. If you are unclear about anything, contact your healthcare team.
- Embrace your roll as advocate. Remember that the your healthcare team is working for one goal — your loved one's best care.
