    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.

    Nursing Sorority Encourages Girls To Enter Medical Field

    in Women

    There was a time when whites did not want black nurses to attend to them, even though black women had been feeding them and nursing them back to health during slavery. But a nurse was a professional position, sometimes more prominent in the hospital than the doctor in saving a patient's life. Black women who broke the barriers in the field of nursing recently celebrated the 50 year anniversary of the 1965 graduating class of Provident School ofNursing. This past weekend October 16, they celebrated the Founder of a nursing sorority that continues to provide scholarships for African American women in the field of nursing. Today Kai Eta Phi sorority member Toni Parks Oats discusses the challenges in the field of nursing and the importance of encouraging our girls excel in math and science, critical skills they'll need ins health care industry.

    Will be discussing SB 1362 -Bill to Amend SS & SB 670 Nursing Home Litigation first half hour of show.


    In 2010. Gina's significant other of 21 years passed away from ovarian cancer and Gina wound up homeless and in great medical need. Gina went through several major surgeries then placed in a Skilled Nursing Facility where her life was saved. Gina was moved from one facility to the one she is in now from 2011.


    Gina was appointed Vice President of the Residents Council then voted President of the Resident Council and found herself fighting the powers that be for the residents rights. She began studying the medicaid/medicare laws and rights provided for the residential care in these facilities.


    Since then Gina have become increasingly aware of how the nursing homes target these elderly patients from the doctor to the judges that abuse the guardianship program for their own gain. Gina's intention is to spend the rest of her life helping those targeted by these guardian programs that allow doctors to claim someone incapacitated, and lawyers that go behind the backs of friends and family and judges that grant for profit guardianship and complete control over others lives without telling them.


    2015- June. Gina read Marisa Conover's story regarding her mother and reached out to her. She then hooked me up with TS radio. Marti Oakley and Debbie Dahmer had Gina as one of the Guests on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day -June 15th, 2015 On TS Radio.

    At Home Health Care...What You May Not Know 
    Here is some information that may surprise you on what there is to be gained through professional in-home health care.


    Part Time Assistance and a Break for Primary Caregivers 
    Even just a few hours a week of part-time help can be an incredible relief for even the most committed caregiver. Providing a well-deserved break allows caregivers to maximize the time they spend at home getting refreshed, and reenergized.


    Companionship and Socialization
    Having a skilled nurse come to the house, even for just a short visit offers something for seniors to look forward to. Particularly when primary caregivers spend 24 hours a day at the home, a few hours with someone new is often a welcome change. 


    Certification in Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care 
    Many families choose to provide full time care for a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia at home. However, having assistance on a regular basis from an expert who is familiar with the disease is invaluable.
