About Us

We teach family caregivers how to:

  • Improve a loved one’s health outcome in the hospital
  • Enhance the patient’s hospital experience
  • Prevent readmission

Our focus: Improving patient health outcomes

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 outcomes in the hospital
  • Decrease the cost of hospital care by reducing hospital days, ER visits, and preventable readmissions
  • Enhance the patient experience

A solution so simple, there’s no disruption

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.

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.

Principal

Beth Rooney Suereth

When her father was hospitalized for his first surgery, Beth 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.
