Care Manager Discovers Senior was Misdiagnosed

By April 15, 2012Care Manager Stories
LivHOME Care Managers often help seniors and their families by digging beneath the surface.

 

Mande DeRome, MSW, demonstrated this when working with a woman who was apparently suffering from dementia. The woman was living in a messy home, had become separated from her family and appeared to be deaf.

 

However, as Mande found out, her medical condition was not as it first appeared. A buildup of earwax had caused a serious misdiagnosis.
