    Aging At Home: Three Benefits Of Using Home Health Care Services


    Heath care practitioners support the idea that seniors who are given the opportunity to age at home lead fuller, happier lives.


    Skilled Medical Assistance on Demand
    Seniors who choose to age at home may face difficulties when it comes to administering medications alone. Aging at home isn’t always associated with medical needs, but when it is, having a skilled, experienced nurse on hand is invaluable.


    Assistance with Daily Activities, Light Housekeeping
    Aside from offering companionship, the right home health care agency can assist with daily activities, like dressing, bathing, even light housekeeping duties. Having help on a daily basis makes it convenient for seniors with disabilities to continue to live in and maintain the home they love with minimal effort.


    Peace of Mind for Loved Ones
    Whether it’s help performing daily tasks, running errands or administering medication, the right in home health care service provides peace of mind for family members who are relieved to know that someone is available and willing to check on a loved one when they need it most.

    Walk the Talk to Health & Well Being with Dr. Glenna and Mildred Lynn McDonald

    in Lifestyle

    Episode 6: Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) in the Elderly - Adding Naturopathic Medicine to the Healing Equation 


    According to research, Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) is the second most common infection presenting in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities.  This being so, there is an excellent opportunity for mainstream (allopathic) and naturopathic practitioners to work together to find the best solution for the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of UTIs.


    In this episode, Dr Glenna Calder, ND and I will explore UTIs as they specifically relate to the health and well being of our loved ones who reside in long-term care facilities. Together, we will tackle what causes UTIs, common symptoms, at risk individuals and treatment options (including antibiotics, probiotics, D-mannose, greens, cranberry, acid/alkaline balance and others). Since reoccurrence of UTIs is common in the elderly, Dr Glenna will offer her professional guidance on how to best break the UTI cycle with practical preventative measures. 


    As always, the information offered is for your consideration. It is our hope that you will use it to facilitate proactive and informed conversations with the health care team responsible for providing your elderly loved one with the best UTI care available in your location. Dr Glenna Calder ND is registered with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors. Please note that the information presented is general in nature. If you have a UTI, please seek the help of a medical professional.

    Dying To Live Part 2

    in Christianity

    The late General Douglas McArthur once said this "only those are fit to live are not afraid to die".  As a former marketing associate for a hospice organization I have met with family members and their dying loved ones and at times I have heard them say I'm afraid to die others said they couldn't wait to see the Lord. The apostle Paul said "For me to live is Christ and to die is gain". He seemed ready to meet his savior and Lord. Yet why is it that we find it very difficult to die to the self-life and live for Christ here on earth? This afterall is where it counts the most right? Righteous living before a Holy God and shining our lights before a lost and dying world. It's really a very difficult and hard teaching isn't it. That the God we seek to serve is asking us to deny ourselves, take up His cross and follow Him. And for each of  us that one thing or attitude we struggle with can be the very thing we must place 10 feet under to live a full life in Christ. You know what it is for you, perhaps its selfishness, greed, lust, ography, idolatry, hatred, deceitful desires, sexual immorality just to name a few. So yes in crucifying the flesh with its lust and passions we once gave our lives to Christ in full repentance perhaps been buried in baptism and ressurected with Him into newness of life.....and then comes a word found in Colossians 3:5 which says "put to death therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed which is idolatry. Lord please always remind me when I'm hostile towards you and living outside your will for me. May the power of your Holy Spirit break all chains of sin that seeks to choke my life in you. In my pursuit for holiness help me Lord to turn away from worthless, vainless and fruitless things and put to death those deeds of the flesh that so desperately wants to kill my peace and joy.

    Jimmy Pollard

    in Health

    In 1986, Jimmy Pollard, a special education teacher by training, found himself managing a specialist unit in a nursing home. Unaware of Huntington’s disease, he rejected for admission a young woman living with it. Her mother gently persuaded him to reconsider and admit her daughter. So began his career working with folks and family touched by HD. Jimmy became interested in how HD’s cognitive changes challenge both people living with it and their carers, and how care settings can accommodate the unique needs of people with HD.


    Walking beside Tony, Geri, Carol, Karen, John and Barbara as they travelled their HD roads for 15 years, he began to learn how these changes challenged them every moment and how they went about coping with them. He learned that listening to families and collaborating with professional colleagues is essential to better understanding and, most importantly, to improved care.


    In the intervening years, Jimmy has written “A Caregiver’s Handbook for Advanced Stage Huntington’s Disease” and “Hurry Up & Wait! A Cognitive Care Companion for Huntington’s Disease,” which have been translated into eight languages by national HD associations around the world, and has spoken at national HD meetings in Australia, England, Italy, Portugal, Ireland, Switzerland, Poland, Scotland, Canada, and the United States.
