Senior discovers alternate transportation
Social isolation for a senior is hard to handle, especially if you don’t have any helpful resources. Ann Rolls would have felt trapped in her home if she didn’t have a geriatric nurse from Edmonton Southside Primary Care Network to turn to for assistance.
Ann first met Mary Whale in March 2011 when her family physician asked Mary to conduct a home visit and a geriatric assessment.
“Ann has had lots of changes in her life. She was quite high functioning, working until past the typical retirement age. Driving was the trigger event. She got lost a couple of times while driving,” explains Mary.
