    Springhill Home Care Group: Mid-life stress 'precedes dementia'

    http://springhillcaregroup.net/archives/269
    Current evidence suggest the best ways to reduce the risk of dementia are to eat a balanced diet, take regular exercise, not smoke, and keep blood pressure and cholesterol in check" - Dr Simon Ridley Alzheimer's Research UK

    According to the latest research, women who suffer from a lot of stress in middle age may increase their risk of developing dementia in later life. Furthermore the study says that mid-life stress may increase a woman's risk of developing dementia.

    Eight hundred women were subjected to study and they have found out that those who had to cope with events such as divorce or bereavement were more likely to get Alzheimer's decades later.

    BMJ Open reports says, the more stressful events there were, the higher the dementia risk became.

    According to the study authors, stress hormones may be to blame, triggering harmful alterations in the brain.

    Many changes in the body is caused by stressed hormones, it can also affect many things like blood pressure and blood sugar control.

    And they can remain at high levels many years after experiencing a traumatic event, Dr Lena Johansson and colleagues explain.

    However they also claim that they need more work to verify their findings and determine whether the same stress and dementia link might also occur in men.

    The study went like this, the women underwent a battery of tests and examinations when they were in either their late 30s, mid-40s or 50s, and then again at regular intervals over the next four decades.

    One in four women said at some part in the start of the study that they had experienced at least one stressful event, such as widowhood or unemployment.

    A comparable proportion had suffered at least two stressful events, whereas one in five had experienced at least three. The remaining women had either experienced more than this or none.

    Four hundred twenty five of the women died and 153

Springhill Care Group: Don't Let Nursing Homes Keep Elderly Married Couples Apart - 1 views

    http://springhillcaregroup.net/archives/255
    According to a new study from the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada, seniors work hard to keep their marriages alive and well, even after one spouse falls ill and goes into a long-term care facility.
    Community-dwelling spouses were greatly drawn in the lives of their partners who are inside the institution, and that a lot of the couples remained active together may it be inside or outside the nursing home Researcher Robin Stadnyk was surprised to discover about this.
    Stadnyk is a post-doctoral researcher in the University of Alberta's Department of Human Ecology. She reviewed data from a qualitative study of 52 community-dwelling spouses in three Canadian provinces: Alberta, Manitoba and Nova Scotia, for her PhD research. According to her research, the participants were heavily involved in their spouses' lives, not only through caretaking duties like doing laundry and helping with personal hygiene, but also through nurturing activities that brought them closer together.
    "Most participants described close relationships with their spouses before the placement in a long-term care home. They simply found ways they could continue that closeness within the institutional walls," Stadnyk noted. Marriage-sustaining activities included watching TV together, studying travel brochures and reviewing diaries to relive old memories, even taking painting lessons together.
    For regular weekly and even daily visits, some spouses do is they bring their partners home. A loving story of an 82-year-old man in the study took weight-training just so he could lift his wife in and out of the car for the weekly trip home.
    "The findings defy the common assumption that the partnership of marriage effectively ends when one spouse enters a care facility," Stadnyk said.
    Changing roles as give-and take-partners to compassionate caretakers, husbands and wives of partners with dementia carry on with nurturing their marriages. One of the thi

Springhill Care Group: Cost and Coverage of Home Care - 1 views

    http://seniorhealth.about.com/od/eldercare/a/home_care_opt.htm
    Nursing home is a home combined with skilled nursing care, rehabilitative care, medical services, personal care, and recreation in a supervised and environment. letting your love ones stay in the nursing home may be hardest decision but choosing the right home will be next hardest. Entering the nursing home doesn't mean that the family involvement ends, instead it is their responsibility to make sure that the home care provides good care.

    Remember the following when choosing the best home care:

    * Have a discussion with the loved one who will be living there. This will aid in adjusting to the major life change about to occur.
    * Work together with other family members and inquire for help in finding the best nursing home.
    * Be in touch with doctors, nurses, or any other health professionals or social workers who care for your loved one.
    * Chat with some nursing home employees, especially assistants since they give most of the care.
    * Solicit a pastor or rabbi for guidance.
    * Contact the long-term care ombudsman.


    People often think that home care is expensive and yes nursing home care can be expensive. It can differ widely depending on where you live but often the average cost is more than $50,000 a year and rising. Sadly, employee health insurance does not pay for nursing home care. A great number of nursing home residents, about a third of its population, pay all of their nursing home expenses from their own funds. Long stay in a home care can consume all your or your loved one's savings fast. There are many who exhaust their finances after just six months. And about a five percent of them buys long-term care insurance, which covers the cost of a nursing home or other extended care.

    Medicare, the federal health insurance program for older persons and some younger ones with disabilities, pays for short-term nursing home stays but the rest, about two-thirds, are from the Medicaid.

News - Springhill Care Group: Effective Communication with the Elderly - 1 views

  •  
    http://news.springhillcaregroup.net/
    It is quite a challenge sometimes to talk or to communicate to elderly because you may need to consider and deal with differences in ages, ideals, priorities and perhaps even hearing or mental cognition issues on top. Don't close your mind and take it for consideration that your elderly friend or loved one may have been raised differently. Generation gap is another issue why it can be hard to communicate with the elderly but once understood, you will find many wonderful things to learn from one another if you just take the time to listen.

    When talking to the elderly, look them in the eye. We all know that looking in the eye when talking to someone is a sign of respect. That is a general rule and that has always been and forever will be. An honest person will never be afraid to look you in the eye and it is also a sign of a genuine interest in the person you are conversing with.

    Do not use or maybe you could turn off you mobile devices, more often than not they do not understand these things and they will feel destructed by it and worse will feel like they are playing second fiddle to a piece of equipment that can lead to them to shut down and lose interest in talking to you.

    Always be respectful, this applies to everyone. You might confuse this with being sweet and condescending but these two are different from respect. Listen to them, or maybe if fitting you can place your hand on their hand or arm. Remember, they are your elderly and not your children so never call them names like, 'sweetie', 'honey', or 'darling', that will be rude!

    Never ever shout at them, if they have troubles hearing you or the surrounding get them hearing aide. They may pull away from communicating with anyone and even become bitter if this is taken for granted. And they may not admit this so it is up to you to notice if they cannot hear properly anymore or have them checked regularly.

    Never make them feel that being there for

Springhill Care Group: Know when you Need the Help of Home Care - 1 views

    It is normal for aging people to have a physical and mental decline and it happens in varying rates and this varying case sometimes needs a higher level of support. Those elderly who chooses to stay at their own home for as long as possible need somebody to constantly assess whether they are actually coping. And their children should do so but if the children live in a very far place this cant be possible so they need to assign somebody who is in regular contact with them to do the monitoring. But how can you determine if they need to be transferred to home care?

    Forgetfulness about household matters, it is sometimes normal but if it can costs their lives it is about time.

     Going out and leaving the house unlocked
     Losing keys and valuables
     Stoves and ovens not turned off
     Failure to place trash cans out for collection
     Newspapers lying uncollected on the front lawn
     Uncollected mail spilling out of the letter box
     Household chores not attended to
     The yard not kept tidy
     Inability to care for the needs of a pet

    Lack of attention to personal care, if they let go of this they already need help.

     Clothes not laundered as frequently as necessary
     Inability to match colors when dressing
     Dressing in inappropriate clothing for the time of day
     Failure to keep scheduled medical appointments
     Medication not being taken
     A refrigerator containing mostly contaminated and unusable food
     Weight loss due to illness or lack of proper dietary intake

    Outdoor safety, if they are being a risk to themselves and to others it is time to get help.

     Driving ability likely to cause accidents
     Wandering around the neighborhood aimlessly
     Getting lost
     Forgetting where they live

    Inability to manage personal affairs

     Bills that are unpaid
     Leaving cash lying around the home
     Losing money
     Not getting to the bank to obtain cash for necessary purchases
     Losing checkbooks and other documents

Springhill Care Group: Misconceptions towards Home Care - 1 views

  •  
    1. A Home Caregiver Can't Provide the Expertise and Level of Care a Senior Nursing Facility Can.

    A 24/7 care can be provided by a quality home care, this include round-the-clock check-ups of vital signs and caregivers monitoring medications of the elderly. A home health caregiver is able to pay all his attention to his patient because he is just responsible to a single patient.
    In turn he will always be present in any emergency and the best thing is that they are trained professionally in dementia care. Grooming and hygiene are never a problem since they practice one is to one caregiver-patient relationship, you are sure that your love one is well taken care of. Their nursing services also include grooming, bathing, transportation, housekeeping, diet management, and senior companionship.

Springhill Group: DPRK jams GPS of ROK Airlines-livejournal - The-looser-it-s-me - 0 views

  •  
    GPS jamming signals coming from North Korea has forced South
    Korea to order its military and civilian air transports to switch
    on alternative navigational devices to avoid disruption.
    A statement from the ministry has confirmed that they were able
    to warn airlines and pilots of the 241 affected South Korean
    flights along with the 11 foreign airlines like Thai Airways,
    AirPhil, FedEx, Japan Airlines and Cathay Pacific Airways. But
    even as the GPS jamming signals continued, South Korea sees no
    serious threat to navigational safety.
    Korea Communications Commission confirmed that the GPS
    jamming signals have been coming from a city on North Korea
    side of the border. "We've traced the jamming signals to the
    direction of Kaesong," a commission deputy director told
    Springhill Group.
    According to the transport agency, planes that suffered from
    GPS signal jamming were instructed to use the alternative
    navigation systems and were not delayed in their schedules. The
    signal jamming appears to be focused on air traffic at Gimpo
    and Incheon airports, both of which are around 30 miles from
    the border.
    Despite the GPS disruption, Springhill Group reports that there
    was no serious threat to flight safety as airplanes are capable of
    using other navigation devices like inertial navigation system
    and very-high-frequency omni-directional range (VOR).
    Meanwhile, military communications and transportation were
    not greatly affected as they do not primarily depend on the GPS
    system.

South Springhill Korea Group: India becomes world's top spammer-tumblr - 0 views

  •  
    If you've got a junk email folder full of spam, there's nearly a 10 percent
    chance it came from a computer in India, the world's new top spam producer.
    India claimed the unwanted crown from the U.S. in the security firm Sophos'
    most recent "Dirty Dozen" report of the top spamming countries between
    January and March. Rounding out the infamous top five are South Korea, which
    accounts for 8.3 percent of spam, and Indonesia and Russia, both of which
    distribute 5 percent of the spam clogging up inboxes.
    Trailing Russia are Italy (4.9 percent ), Brazil (4.3 percent), Poland (3.9
    percent), Pakistan (3.3 percent), Vietnam (3.2 percent), Taiwan (2.9 percent)
    and Peru (2.5 percent).
    [The 10 Biggest Online Security Myths - And How to Avoid Them]
    According to Sophos' chief technical officer Graham Cluley, the computers in
    these high-spamming countries might be sending out their junk messages
    without the complicity of the computers' actual owners.
    "The vast majority of spam comes from home computers that have been
    compromised by hackers, and commandeered into a botnet," Cluley explained.
    Botnets, short for "robot networks," function like automated zombie armies;
    infected with a malicious piece of software that puts them under the control of
    a remote operator, they carry out the orders of the command-and-control
    server - including sending mass amounts of spam emails - all without the
    computer owner's knowledge.
    Cluley said total spam output has actually decreased since the same time period
    last year. He credited this decline to cybercriminals switching up their
    approach; they are crafting more targeted email scams, and taking advantage of
    the massive popularity of social networks like Facebook and, more recently,
    Pinterest, to do the scam-spreading work for them.
    Fortunately, whatever country you're in, you can download anti-virus software
    that can help prevent these spam-spewing armies from enlisting
