The Karla Smith Foundation has started a valuable and informative blog. The current topic is “Medication Monitoring” written by Tom Smith (2011). He writes about the importance of medication maintenance and how the family can help with three simple steps. He talks about how we can help our loved one by observing, reporting and persuading if needed. I have found this to be very empowering. I especially like when he talks about how our goal is to “walk side by side” with our loved one. He provides us a way to do that! You will have to check it out and see for yourself! From the heart ~ thank you Tom! You give us strength as we walk the walk. I look forward to future blog posts from Tom!
