People with Disabilities and Healthcare Industry Tagged with:

Doctor visits are important for anyone, but particularly for people who have a disability. It’s wise to check in regularly to prevent future complications and determine what lifestyle adjustments will provide you with the best quality of life. But those visits can take up hours to get through, and often, you have to schedule an appointment weeks in advance.

Long Term Care, It Destroys Family Harmony . . .

Long Term Care, It Destroys Family Harmony . . . Tagged with:
Have you ever been in a nursing home? Who’s there? Who gets sick first? Who keeps him out of a nursing home? (She does.)

When we hear personal stories about Long Term Care experiences, they’re almost always negative. Siblings become angry with each other over whose responsibility the parents care is supposed to be. Dad visited mom every day for two years before she died. When she passed away, she didn’t know who he was anymore. And, all their savings went to the nursing home and there was nothing left for him.

Restore with Water

Restore with Water Tagged with:

 

October is widely known as Breast Cancer awareness month with cities hosting several walks and races. Sadly most of us can say that we know or have known someone who has journeyed this road.  Those whom are surviving can find themselves in a de-conditioned state in the blink of an eye.  Everyone that is dealing with the recovery of cancer will echo the same thing.  I want to feel better, get stronger and increase my endurance.

Prevent Pressure Ulcers for Wheelchair Users

Prevent Pressure Ulcers for Wheelchair Users Tagged with:

Pressure ulcers or bedsores arise if you have an inadequate supply of blood flow to the skin in a particular region. They form when your skin and soft tissue presses against a harder surface such as chair or bed for a long time. This pressure reduces the blood flow to the area. Lack of blood supply damages the skin tissues resulting in pressure ulcers. The most typical reason for a pressure sore is the lack of movement. So, it is common in people who are moving in wheelchairs or lying in a bed. People who are overweight or underweight can also develop pressure ulcers. It also happens to people who are not able to control their bowels or bladder and people who spend a lot of time in one position.
