Every month the Ezra Home Care team invites certified professionals in geriatric care to provide trainings to the caregivers and answer their questions.

Ezra Home Care offers Post-Surgical/Orthopedic Program to help people recover safely and successfully after orthopedic surgery. We invited Adam to provide training to Ezra Home Care caregivers and discuss the most common difficulties of caring for the elderly and people who are recovering from surgery. He answered questions about fall prevention, facilitating personal hygiene tasks and provided many valuable tips for caregivers.
