Like many holidays, Christmas can be a challenge for those on the autism spectrum. Holidays often disrupt routines and bring an array of new foods, sounds and smells – all of which can be overwhelming or distressing for individuals with autism. By planning ahead, you can help your child have an enjoyable holiday.
March is National Social Worker Month. Chances are, a social worker has impacted the life of someone you know – a patient, a friend or a loved one. Social workers provide our patients with emotional support, help them find solutions to difficult situations and connect them with vital services and resources. Freeman has social workers in a variety of departments at Freeman. For instance, dialysis social workers connect patients with resources that help make their dialysis experiences better, such as transportation, food, medical equipment and in-home services.
Having highly trained and educated nurses is a priority at Freeman Health System. The Nursing Education Fund is available to eligible Freeman nurses who want to further their nursing education. Money from the fund can be used for advancing a degree, a specialty certification (which can help an RN achieve a higher level in TAPP), healthcare projects or conferences that may be too expensive to attend without assistance.
