Caregivers And Their Loved Ones Live In Fear, A Tool To Provide Comfort


Many caregivers live in fear of something happening to their loved one, and they not being there to get help, to aid them, etc. They constantly worry when they are away, and feel a lot of stress and anxiety over those under their care. Those receiving care also live in fear, the same fears as the caregivers, being helpless should they fall, or an emergency situation arises, but also the fear of losing their independence, having to live in a home, etc. because they are aging, and there are natural consequences that come as our bodies age.

My Health Phone - A NEW Tool That Makes Ordinary Personal Emergency Response Systems Outdated and Obsolete

A great new tool that outdoes other personal emergency response systems.


Seniors often want to live in their own homes, and live independently of others, but their caregivers and family worry about emergency situations, etc. The caregivers are not the only ones that worry, often the senior themselves worry about what to do if they should take a fall, or have another emergency situation. This is why emergency response systems have grown in popularity, and are an important tool to seniors. They offer peace of mind to both caregivers and seniors, and an invaluable tool for receiving emergent care should it be needed. Or course not all personal emergency response systems are created equally.

There is a new emergency response system on the market, My Health Phone, and it is the swiss army knife of emergency response systems. Most emergency response systems, while very useful to seniors in their homes, are extremely limited in their use. Lifeline and First Alert for example, are both limited to their use being inside the home, and near the base. While they do offer benefits not found with a cell phone device, such as always being within reach (pendant necklace) and always being charged, the drawbacks of limited access often requires the user to get a cell phone anyway.

So why chose a service like My Health Phone, rather than just get a traditional cell phone plan? My Health Phone is so much more than a cell phone, so much more than an emergency response system, it offers many tools to lighten the burden, and provide peace of mind to caregivers and seniors. Here are a few of its benefits:
  1. Can be combined with cell phone: My Health Phone is a fully-functional cell phone that works almost anywhere. With this service, you can use whatever cell phone provider you want, which means you can use your current plan if you are on one.
  2. Check-In Calls and Text Messages: The software on the My Health Phone eases the burden on caregivers by sending automatic check-in contact through text, phone call, or email, and then notifies caregivers (or whomever you set it up to notify) if the check-in is responded to negatively, or not at all. The caregiver and senior get to designate the frequency and timing.
  3.  Medication Reminders: One of the great features of My Health Phone is that it is set up to make regular reminders to the user to take their medication. This can be very specific, such as, “Have you taken this specific drug at this time in this dosage?” Or it can be a generic question such as, “Have you taken your medication?” Again, the caregiver can set it up to be alerted to negative or non-responsive answers.
  4.  Access To Important Information- Next, this phone acts as a great resource for emergency personnel and caregivers when emergency situations do arise, or when the senior is traveling as it can store electronic copies of important documents and information such as living wills, HIPAA releases, medical directives, and the like.
  5. Caregiver Assistance and Confirmation- This has already been mentioned, but it helps caregivers rest at ease, and not have to nag their loved ones about things like taking medication.
  6. Works Inside and Outside of the Home- This device is not limited to the home, thus seniors don’t have to be, it provides easy 911 access, caregiver access, and important alert access regardless of where the senior is, traveling, at the grocery store, out with friends, or in their home.
As you can see this is an amazing personal emergency response system that makes ordinary systems seem outdated and obsolete.

Tena Pads And Light Incontinence

TENA brand is a good choice








When people are dealing with light incontinence problems, using Tena pads can provide you with great protection against the embarrassment that can come with incontinence.

Blood Pooling In The Legs May Cause Varicose Veins

Not your Grandma's Stockings Anymore
Blood pooling in the legs may result in varicose veins.  While varicose veins are unsightly, they may also be the harbinger of worse things to come when not taken care of properly.  There are treatments available for varicose veins, but they do not prevent future occurrences of varicose veins and may result in scarring.

Varicose veins form when the veins usually of the legs and the valves in the veins can no longer keep up with the demand to pump blood back to the heart.  This can be from overuse of the veins and their fight against gravity of from the overproduction of blood.  Overuse generally occurs in jobs that require lots of standing, like wait staff in a restaurant or nurses.  Overproduction of blood normally comes during pregnancy.  About three times as many women as men are affected by varicose veins. Other factors that contribute to the formation of varicose veins include obesity and genetics.

While those who are cursed by their place in the gene pool may develop varicose veins strictly through the sheer force of nature, everyone can take steps to prevent getting varicose veins.  For those whose jobs require standing for long periods of times, it is important to take appropriate breaks.  Those breaks should be spent off of the feet with the legs elevated to help relieve the pressure that gravity may be exerting on the veins and their valves.

Pregnant women should not eschew exercise, but should also be aware of how long that they are spending on their feet.  Taking appropriate breaks with the feet up should be seen as part of the compensation package for being pregnant.  Because pregnancy is often a joyous occasion, it is important to make sure to take precautions so it can be so a majority of the time.

People who are overweight can reduce their chances of getting varicose veins, along with a whole host of other diseases related to obesity including heart disease, stroke and diabetes, by losing weight.  While that is easier said than done, it is important that the person start on the journey to being healthier and less prone to disease.  By consulting with a physician about exercise and a nutritionist about food, it is possible that the person can become leaner.  It will generally take small steps, persistence and a permanent change in both eating and exercise habits, but the payoff will be worth it in the end.
 
People who have varicose veins can expect to have to deal with them over the long term.  Treatment of the symptoms may include getting off of one’s feet and elevating them and wearing compression hosiery.  By getting off of the feet, someone who has varicose veins will be using gravity to help move the blood that has pooled out of the legs and back to the heart.  This can help reduce swelling and pain.

Compression hosiery helps lower the amount of blood pooling in the legs.  By applying more pressure at the ankles and less at the top of the sock, the compression sock encourages and supports the veins in their work to defy gravity and get the blood to the heart.  This allows the blood to circulate better and to keep the legs from getting blood clots which can be dangerous to both life and limb.  The best part is that compression socks are now stylish not just in look but also in use.  They do come in several styles and the fabrics mimic the look of normal socks.  Compression socks are also utilized by some athletes to improve performance on the field.

How To Be Sensitive With Adult Diapers

Adult Diapers

As our loved ones reach their twilight years, many of them will have to deal with incontinence and use adult diapers. There are many treatments for incontinence. Sometimes, however, this condition is not reversible. When your loved one suffers from incurable incontinence, adult diapers will help them deal with this calamity. This article will establish some guidelines that allow you to deal with the sensitive issue of adult diapers:

1.     If you are supplying your adult diapers for your loved one, you should try and help them find the product that works best for them. Many companies offer free samples if your loved one finds a particular kind to be uncomfortable, find one that will work for them. You should work with your home healthcare provider to make sure that your loved one is comfortable. Sometimes, you may have to pay more for a diaper that they like. This is very important because it allows you to make sure that your loved one will be comfortable with a very sensitive product.
2.     Make sure that you and your home healthcare specialist are always very sensitive when it comes to delivering service. If you keep your adult diapers at home, make sure they are kept in a place that is not easily seen. Also, make sure that you dispose of your adult diapers in a very sensitive manner. Sometimes, your home healthcare provider will dispose of these at a third-party facility and will place them in their vehicle at the end of their shift. Another possibility is to include a separate trash or biohazard container in your home that is specifically intended to dispose of the adult diapers that your loved one uses.
3.     Answer any questions that your loved one may have. They may be very uncertain about having to use incontinence products and having to wear diapers may make them question whether or not they will have to change their lifestyle. It is very important to be upfront with them about any issues that are related to their diaper-wearing experience. Some patients are able to wear diapers and maintain their regular level of activity. Some patients, on the other hand, are going to have to change their lifestyle drastically, due to their incontinence issues.
4.     Make sure that your loved one’s incontinence issues are discussed in private. If you have company over to see your loved one and they are bedridden, it is important to respect their privacy by not discussing their condition. This will allow your loved one to express in confidence that they need to be changed. If you sense that your loved one needs to have their diaper changed, ask any guests or family members to leave the room. This will make it so that your loved one has the opportunity to deal with their issue in private.
5.     Consult with your home healthcare provider daily. Sometimes, you may need to change your loved one’s diaper when the home healthcare specialist is not on-the-clock. If the specialist notices a change in your loved one’s incontinence patterns, you may need to change their diapers more frequently. Work with your home healthcare specialist in order to make sure that your loved one is comfortable and has everything that they need in regards to their incontinence needs.

Your loved one’s incontinence condition is something that will change their life. It is not an easy transition and it is very important to remain thoughtful and kind while they are dealing with their issue. Your kindness and sensitivity, in regards to your loved one’s incontinence, will go a long ways toward making sure that your loved one is comfortable making this major transition in their life when they have to wear adult diapers.

Having a Good Bedside Manner With Incontinence Pads

Incontinence Pads

Many people go to hospitals with conditions that require incontinence pads. Incontinence pads are intended to be short-term absorbent pads that help a person deal with bladder control problems. If you are a healthcare professional who works with incontinence pads, you should be very well aware of the importance of having a good bedside manner when working with your patients. This article will provide some tips for how to make it so that your patient’s experience in the hospital with incontinence pads is endurable.

1.       Be sensitive to your patient’s needs. Your patient will require a very thoughtful and kind demeanor when you are working with them. As you are helping them with incontinence pads, ask them how the particular product they are using is working for them. Take note of any rashes that may occur and ask them if these are painful or not. If your patient is taking part in a rehabilitative treatment program, make sure that their incontinence pad does not impede their ability to move. This will guarantee the functionality of their incontinence pad.
2.       When making conversation with your patient, try not to discuss the negative aspects of an incontinence pad. An incontinence pad is designed for short-term treatment. Make the patient realize that they are going to get better and will not struggle with incontinence after their hospital stay. Sometimes, patients are able to overcome their incontinence problem with positive reinforcement. Positive reinforcement will help your patient overcome their fears and make them realize that having to wear a pad is not a shortcoming on their part.
3.       Remember that patients do not necessarily want to discuss their incontinence directly. Instead of directly addressing a patient’s incontinence, address the particular product that they are using. Ask them if it is working for them and if it is comfortable. Addressing the product will help avoid an uncomfortable discussion about their condition.
4.       Remember that confidentiality is key. If the patient’s family wants to discuss the condition, let the patient disclose this information to them. Healthcare employees are bound by HIPAA and cannot divulge any information whatsoever about a patient’s condition. A patient’s condition should be discussed only with them. Breaking HIPAA can result in termination from a person’s position and possible legal action against the employee and the healthcare provider.
5.       Respect the needs of the patient that you are working with. Obeying this rule will likely help comply with the four that are aforementioned. Remember that your patient is a person who has a condition that is difficult to live and deal with. Respecting the needs of your patient as a person will make them not dread their hospital stay. When respecting the needs of a patient, the employee should treat the patient with incontinence just as they would any other hospital patient. Incontinence pads are a way of allowing a patient to deal with their condition without having to be demoralized or embarrassed. A person with incontinence pads has a high degree of recovering and will likely improve drastically as their other healthcare needs are met.

Incontinence pads are great tools for patients who have short-term incontinence issues. They can help a patient maintain a certain level of activity while they are recovering from a malady. This is very important because it can help restore their confidence if they have the opportunity to wear incontinence pads. Being kind and having a good bedside manner will help a patient recover and maintain a certain level of dignity. When dealing with a patient, it is important to keep in mind that they are human beings and that their condition is not something that they want. Having incontinence pads will help them recover from a short-term condition and they will be able to return to their lives with dignity.
