    Prescriptions for psychotropic drugs, including those sometimes referred to as the "chemical cosh", soar amongst elderly people who are admitted to residential care homes, a new study shows.

    The study, in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, looks at the prescribing of drugs to calm anxiety and sedate, as well as the antipsychotics which are supposed to be prescribed for severe mental health conditions such as schizophrenia and bipolar disorder and only for dementia as a last resort.

    The researchers, from Queen's University Belfast, carried out the study using information from the Northern Ireland prescribing database relating to over 250,000 people over the age of 65, but, they say, the pattern they found holds good for the whole of the UK.

    They discovered that only 1.1% of elderly people living in the community in their own homes or with relatives were taking an antipsychotic - the so-called "chemical cosh" drugs, which the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) warns are not appropriate for most people with dementia.

Home Care Group Springhill Blog Reviews: Technology helps elderly to stay at home - 1 views

    There's no place like home - especially when it comes to helping older people and those with care needs to maintain their wellbeing and independence within their communities. This is why there's a growing drive to integrate housing provision with health and social care.
    But how exactly can housing providers ensure they deliver the right facilities and support for vulnerable people, to help build integrated and sustainable communities? I believe the housing sector's skills and resources will be key to helping social care and health providers sustain services while budgets are reducing, and provide a better experience for those with long-term needs.

    Free Alzheimer's Training Available in all 50 States to Support Family Caregivers
    Alzheimer's disease is a fatal, progressive and degenerative disease that destroys brain cells. It is the most common form of dementia. Alzheimer's disease is not a normal part of aging. Symptoms include having difficulty remembering things, making decisions and performing everyday activities. These changes can affect the way a person feels and acts. There is currently no way to stop the disease, but research is improving the way provide care and will continue to search for a cure.

    Americans fear developing Alzheimer's disease more than any other major life-threatening disease, including cancer, stroke, heart disease and diabetes according to OMAHA, Neb. - November 13, 2012 - Home Instead Senior Care®, the world's leading provider of home care services for seniors, announced new survey results.
    More than 1,200 Americans was designed to gain perspective on the most pressing concerns associated with Alzheimer's, including diagnosis and the difficulties of caring for a loved one with the disease, according to the survey of Marist Institute for Public Opinion.
    According to Jeff Huber, president and chief operating officer of Home Instead, Inc. "The survey confirmed what our franchise owners had been hearing from their clients and their families - the majority of Americans feel unprepared to care for a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The need for support and education for these families is critical."

    Additional survey highlights include:
    o Nearly two-thirds of Americans (63 percent) have had a personal experience with someone with Alzheimer's and/or a serious memory loss problem.
    o 61 percent of Americans feel unprepared to care for a loved one diagnosed with the disease.
    o If diagnosed with the disease, Americans most fear the inability to care for oneself, and burdening others (68 percent); followed by losing memory of life and lov

Springhill Group Home - How To Apply A Home Loan For First Time Buyers - blogger - 0 views

  •  
    Purchasing and owning a home is one of the biggest financial investments you'll ever make, and no doubt you'll have many questions regarding the process. First-time buyers enjoy some special privileges and opportunities.

    Some banks will offer first-time buyers a bond above 100% to help you cover the transfer and legal costs as well as the purchase price. And almost all institutions now offer a 30 year bond repayment period, to make the monthly costs more accessible, an option which banks created specifically for first-time buyers.

    Make that very clear on your application that you're a first-time buyer.

    It is a general rule, make a quality purchase, buying a house is a big decision so you have to decide wisely. When house hunting you can follow this tips.

Obama seeks to widen support base with Florida seniors, Hispanics - blogger - 0 views

  •  
    KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- Kicking off a two-day Sunshine State barnstorm Saturday, President Barack Obama tapped into key parts of what he hopes will be a winning Florida coalition similar to but larger than the one he assembled in 2008.
    At stops in Seminole and Kissimmee, Fla., the president, who won the Sunshine State by just 50.9 percent in 2008, targeted the votes of senior citizens, warning that their Medicare benefits would be harmed by a plan put forward by his Republican opponents Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

    "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."

In new effort to tackle health care fraud, government and insurers to scrutinize clai... - 1 views

  •  
    WASHINGTON - The Obama administration is upping the ante in the
    fight against health care fraud, joining forces with private insurers and
    state investigators on a scale not previously seen in an attempt to stanch
    tens of billions of dollars in losses.
    Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in a
    statement Thursday that the new public-private partnership "puts
    criminals on notice that we will find them and stop them," while
    Attorney General Eric Holder called it "a critical step forward" against
    fraud, an endemic problem plaguing programs like Medicare and
    Medicare as well as private insurance companies.
    Details of the collaboration remain to be worked out, but the
    possibilities include sharing information on new fraud schemes as they
    pop up, using claims data to catch scams such as payments billed to
    different insurers on the same day for care purportedly delivered to the
    same patient in different cities, and using computer analysis to spot
    emerging patterns of fraud.
    The agreement is also unusual because it brings the Obama
    administration and longtime foes in the insurance industry together to
    tackle a common problem. While carrying out the requirements of
    President Barack Obama's health care overhaul law, insurers are also
    lobbying to roll back some of its provisions, such as new taxes on the
    industry and cuts to private plans offered through Medicare. Obama
    continues to rail against industry "abuses."
    Fraud is estimated to cost Medicare about $60 billion a year, and the
    Obama administration has beefed up the government's efforts to stop it,
    bringing in record settlements with drug companies for marketing
    violations as well as using new powers in the health care law to pursue
    low-level fraudsters with greater zeal.
    Yet, although Medicare is becoming a harder target, it's too early to say
    if the tide has turned.
    Some antifraud efforts launched with great fanfare have yet to deliver
    convincing results.

    The move came after the Department of Special Investigation (DSI) obtained information that a Thai company had struck a deal to buy 10 billion pseudoephedrine-based cold tablets from a Chinese firm.

    Previously, the DSI obtained information that the firm also signed a deal to buy 850 million tablets, or 40 tonnes of the medicine, from South Korea.

    The DSI found that 87 million cold tablets were transported into Thailand from South Korea by plane on nine occasions since 2010.

    They had false air cargo manifests to avoid attracting attention from the authorities.

    The DSI suspected the medicines were smuggled in from South Korea.

    The DSI is investigating two companies suspected of being involved in the smuggling of the pills from overseas.

    The companies are UTAC Thai Co Ltd, a supplier of integrated circuits, and TVR Group Co Ltd, a car dealer and vehicle hire firm.

    Some information relating to the drug purchases was uncovered at the companies during recent searches of their premises but the firms denied any involvement.

    Mr Tarit said yesterday DSI officials also discovered a contract to buy 10 billion pseudoephedrine-based cold tablets from China during the search at UTAC Thai Co Ltd.

    Under the contract, the first batch of 2 million tablets was to have been shipped to Thailand on July 31, 2009.

    He said the DSI also found a photo showing a man collecting the pills from Suvarnabhumi airport cargo warehouse.

    The cold tablets from China and South Korea have the same brand name of COLCOLCO, he said.

    Mr Tarit said DSI officials also searched the company's factory but there was nothing amiss.

    However, it was found that the company had three South Korean executives and one Thai executive, Mr Tarit said.

    He said the Korean Food and Drug Administration recently sent information regarding the nine shipments of pills which showed the contract to buy the cold tablets from South Korean was signed by UTAC Thai Co.
