At Last!

Angie Szumlinski News

Last week I had the pleasure of participating in a roundtable discussion with providers from around the country. The goal of the meeting was to talk about where we have been and how we survived the past 2 years, but more importantly, we discussed where we are going and how we plan to get there. There were about 25 people in attendance and the discussions were quite animated and honest!

What we learned in that hour-long meeting was that we should trust not only our gut but also our friends. No one is an island, everyone needs someone at some point in their lives, either during a crisis, post-crisis, or during the recovery phase. As post-acute care providers, we are somewhere in between the post-crisis and recovery mode. Some of us are further along than others and need more support while others are supporting those who are struggling

I left that meeting with a renewed faith in the post-acute care community. Long gone are the days of “gossip”, “did you hear about so and so”, we have arrived, we are a strong community of caregivers. You should all take a bow, be thankful and reach out to the less fortunate providers who continue to struggle. Thank you for all you have done and continue to do day in and day out. Stay the course, stay strong and stay united!
