"I volunteered to be a part of an organization that assisted families with special needs children. We would visit the family once a week and interact with the child so the mother/father could have a little free time to attend to personal projects, or just take a breather. When I was assigned my family and went to meet them and their children the mother gave me a folder and said I might want to take it with me so that I could better acquaint myself with their son. When I began reading the information, I was just overwhelmed at not the facts, but of the stories about their son. Things he liked or didn’t, foods he liked and didn’t like, his moods, his activities, pictures of he and his family and so much more. In a matter of an hour, I learned not only his doctor’s information, contacts and his health issues, but about his teachers, his family and his friends. I got a complete “big” picture of the entire child. When I went back I felt so secure and I felt like I “knew” him. I ask his mother about the special folder she had given me and she said she gave one to his teachers and doctors and others who might have him in their care and they shared my enthusiasm, even the grandparents loved the folder.
I never told his mother this, but I thought to myself, oh my, how this would have been such a blessing to me and my son’s caregivers and teachers and medical staff. Because you see I also was the mother of a special needs child and the mountains of paperwork I had filled out over the years with so many doctors, all his teachers, family caregivers who all had to told separately about what they needed to know in order to take care of him. The hours it would have saved and the security of knowing that they knew my son. Not just the medications, but really “knew” him and all by just handing them a wonderful folder."
"The medical binder from Our Little Peace of Mind was a lifesaver for me as a coordinator for my mother's healthcare. As a busy professional with my own life to worry about as well, anything that allows me to provide better care more efficiently for my mother is welcome, and the binder is the #1 quality-of-life improvement on that list. This is a must-have for caregivers and coordinators!"
