  •  
    On Blogger - Springhill Care Group
    A programme that gets pharmacists to help make sure nursing home residents take their medicines promptly and safely will be extended to more homes and home-care providers. It follows a successful one-year pilot at six nursing homes in the last year.

    They are St Theresa's Home, Society for the Aged Sick, Tai Pei Social Service, Sree Narayana Mission Home for the Aged Sick, Jamiyah Nursing Home and Moral Home for the Aged Sick.

    A spokesman for the Agency for Integrated Care (AIC), an entity under the Ministry of Health that oversees the long-term care of the elderly, said it would start getting in touch with other nursing homes and hoped to extend the programme to all eventually.

    For the pilot, pharmacists from Guardian Health & Beauty, Watson's Personal Care Stores, NTUC Unity Healthcare and the National Healthcare Group visited the six homes and met individual residents to sort out their medications.

SEOUL TO HAVE JUST TWO WORKERS TO SUPPORT ONE ELDERLY PERSON BY 2039 - 0 views

  •  
    An average of two Seoul citizens would have to work to support one elderly by 2039 amid the falling birth rate and rising life expectancy, statistics showed Wednesday.

    Statistics data from the Seoul Metropolitan Government predicts that in 27 years, the working-age population between 15 and 64 would drop 26 percent to 5.99 million and senior citizens aged 65 and over are expected to grow 172 percent to 2.95 million.

    Currently an average of 7.4 working people support each senior citizen.

    The demographic change is feared to squeeze the city's workforce, threatening growth and pension systems.

    The data based on a survey by the Statistics Korea also indicated that the number of youth aged 1 to 14 is forecast to decrease by 25 percent to 1.03 million.

China-US Standoff over Dissident Chen - blogger - 0 views

  •  
    The decision of US to let the blind human rights activist Chen Guangcheng return into China's fold following his escape from authorities is straining ties between the two countries as diplomatic dialogues opened in Beijing.

    The 40-year old Chen who is now considered a dissident became an international human rights inspiration to many Chinese after earning the ire of the local government for exposing forced abortions in line with the country's one-child policy. The self-taught lawyer took to the US embassy after his escape, apparently to ask for help but was eventually ushered into the Beijing Hospital.

    "I want you to know, AARP, I would never turn Medicare into a voucher," Obama said at a civic center here, making an explicit play for members of the 50-and-up club. "I believe no American should ever have to spend their golden years at the mercy of insurance companies."

    According to a senior official's statement to Springhill Care Group, Chen has indeed went into the embassy that day and has requested for medical treatment for his injured foot. American medical personnel have then conducted medical tests and made appropriate treatment during the time he was there.

Businesses Focus on Region's Aging Population - 0 views

    Using a moisture sensor, a wireless system and a mobile phone, Kevin Wong, the chief executive of Ckicom Technology Ltd, explains how this new technology can alert caregivers when they should change the diapers of elderly people in nursing homes.
    As the rapid aging of Asia's population creates challenges for governments and societies, new opportunities are emerging for businesses serving the needs of the elderly and their caretakers.
    While population aging is a global phenomenon, the Asian-Pacific region is expected to see a particularly drastic demographic change over the next few decades. The number of elderly persons in the region-already home to more than half of the world's population aged 60 and over-is expected to triple to more than 1.2 billion by 2050, when one in four people in the region will be over 60 years old, according to the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
    Across Asia, large corporations and entrepreneurs in various industries are racing to come up with new products and services for the elderly, while health-care-related businesses are seeing soaring demand. Among various fields of health care for the elderly, nursing homes represent one of the fastest-growing sectors.

Japan toilet maker unveils 'poop-powered' motorbike - blogger - zimbio - 0 views

  •  
    TOKYO (AFP) - Japan's best-known toilet maker on Wednesday unveiled a "poop-powered" motorcycle that can travel as far as 300km on a tank filled with animal waste.

    Billed as the world's first waste-powered vehicle, the three-wheeler has a toilet in place of a regular seat and huge paper roll at the back.

    But as a young female model climbed aboard for a test drive Wednesday, toilet giant TOTO was quick to point out that she would not supply the "gas".

    "The biogas it uses as fuel is not made from human waste. It's made from livestock waste and sewage," Kenji Fujita, a company spokesman, told reporters in a Tokyo suburb.

    Annals of Health Law, Vol. 21, No. 1, 2012
    UNC Legal Studies Research Paper No. 2018589

    Abstract:
    This essay considers how the 2010 Supreme Court decision in Skilling v. United States, which limited the situations in which mail and wire fraud cases may be premised on violations of the "intangible right to honest services," has the potential to alter the future of health care fraud litigation. While Skilling is widely perceived to have closed the door to several types of common mail and wire fraud prosecutions, this may not turn out to be the case in health care. In health care, the renewed focus on kickbacks as evidence of an honest services breach instead may dovetail nicely with both the Obama Administration's emphasis on criminal health care fraud enforcement and the jurisprudence of the Medicare & Medicaid Anti-Kickback Statute. This kind of leverage may prove very difficult for prosecutors to resist, and most certainly will require changes in the way the health law bar approaches common Anti-Kickback concerns.

Home Instead Senior Care Launches Senior Fraud Awareness Campaign - 1 views

  •  
    Home Instead Senior Care, the nation's largest provider of in-home

    companion care services, today announced the launch of its Protect Seniors

    from FraudSM program. This new initiative empowers older Americans and

    their families by arming them with the information and tools they need to

    help protect themselves from con artists targeting the elderly.

    These scammers are proving successful with victims of elder financial abuse

    currently estimated to experience an annual financial loss of $2.9 billion.*

    Often retired, less mobile, more reliant on others and home for unannounced

    calls or visits, seniors are frequently perceived as "easy prey" by scammers.

    Seniors are also quickly becoming the largest population segment. Coupled,

    these trends increase the risk for a number of crimes -particularly those

    involving identity theft, Medicaid/Medicare fraud and financial exploitation.

    "Increasingly, scams targeting seniors are a threat to the financial stability and

    safety of our nation's seniors, putting many at risk for losing their life savings

    or homes-not to mention their trust in others," said Jisella Dolan, Vice

    President and General Counsel, Home Instead, Inc., the franchisor for Home

    Instead Senior Care. "But there are easy steps seniors and their families can

    take to help prevent these crimes. Protect Seniors from Fraud will help reduce

    the risk by educating potential victims."

    The Protect Seniors from Fraud program, developed with expert advice from

    senior-crime prevention organization the National Association of Triads, Inc.,

    provides a number of free online resources, including a Senior Fraud

    Protection Kit with scam prevention tips, risk assessment tools, and advice on

    what to do if you or a loved one is scammed. Specific precautions found in

    these materials, which seniors and their families can implement to help avoid

    falling victim to con artists, include:

International Travel Health Insurance Tips - the Springhill Group - tumblr - 0 views

  •  
    When you are traveling around the world these days there is a lot you need to be concerned with. International travel health Insurance is one of them. When you travel internationally you never know what can happen to you, but you need to prepare for the unexpected.

    If your health insurance does cover international care, then it may have a time limit. Thirty days is a common limit on care for international travel health insurance. Again, you want to make sure on this because if you get special insurance for international travel, you don't want to get duplicate insurance.

    If for some reason you become very ill and need to stay in a hospital for an extended period the current health insurance you have may not cover you for a longer period.

    If you are a senior citizen, it's important to note that Medicare doesn't cover you abroad.

    According to the U.S. Center For Disease Control and Prevention half of U.S. travelers abroad will have some sort of health problem.

    There are many types of international travel insurance plans. There are short term international travel health insurance plans, there are long term travel health insurance plans and there are plans that deal with non medical issues. These issues may be non medical to begin with but they can make you feel sick later. An example of non medical travel insurance is trip cancelation for international travel. read complete article
