About Us

We help families managing a hospital stay or preparing for the final stages of life

Our focus: Improving families' experiences in the hospital and at home

Family caregivers can influence a loved one’s hospital experience and health outcome — but only if they understand the power they have and how to use it. We invite you to join Caregiving Pathways on our mission to:

  

  • Teach family caregivers how to improve patient health in the hospital

  • Decrease the cost of hospital care by reducing hospital days, ER visits, and preventable readmissions

  • Enhance the patient experience

  • Understand shifting care priorities

 

 

Family caregivers are extra hands, eyes, and ears that currently exist in virtually every patient room. We engage this influential population to improve inpatient health outcomes and reduce the cost of care — without disrupting care delivery.

A solution so simple, there’s no disruption

Clinicians can learn critical patient-specific details

These family members can also help care delivery teams identify patient-specific situations, such as depression, dementia, substance abuse, or hearing loss, that aren’t readily apparent but significantly affect patients’ ability to manage their condition and hospital experience.

Family caregivers can prepare to provide follow-up care at home

Patients leave the hospital earlier than ever, especially because of COVID-19. But the family members and friends who care for patients at home after a hospital stay are often unprepared to manage the medical/nursing tasks they become responsible for handling. We help family caregivers learn how to get the help they need to provide safe care at home.

Beth Rooney Suereth

Founder and Principal

 

When Beth's father was hospitalized for his first surgery, she wasn’t aware that family members could have a role during the hospitalization of a loved one. Several hospital stays later, it became clear that being actively involved in the hospital stay can make a significant difference in a loved one’s health outcome and overall cost of care.

Beth is focused on creating a family caregiver culture that will drive improved patient outcomes and help families care for a family member during a health crisis and the final stages of life.

We want to help hospitals, health plans, pharmacies, and care providers engage family caregivers to improve patient health outcomes, improve medication adherence, and reduce hospital costs and readmissions.
