In-Home Care Options For Aging Family Members

 

You may be one of many people who have come to the difficult realization that your beloved family member is no longer able to live independently. Your senior relative may have trouble with day-to-day tasks or remembering to take medications. As a close family member, you may feel responsible for care but might not have the time or skills necessary to provide in-home care. Assisted living facilities are not the only option. If you're interested in senior home care Massachusetts, consider the following information as you decide whether or not it is right for your loved one.

Benefits of Staying Home

Many seniors find it stressful to move to assisted living facilities. Some seniors may still be living with a spouse or other family member in the home. Some are concerned about being separated from pets or memories of children growing up in the home. Seniors who do not want to go to an assisted living facility may be happier, less stressed, and healthier with in-home care.

Available Services

In-home care includes transportation to doctor’s appointments, meal preparation, companionship, and light housework. Caregivers can also help with medication schedules, bathing, grooming, mobility, and toileting. If the senior suffers from dementia, a caregiver will ensure the person in his or her care does not wander away from home.

Costs of In-Home Care

Some in-home care programs are federally funded and may be covered by Medicaid. These programs could end up costing less than an assisted living facility.

Familiar Family Routines

With help from an in-home care giver, families can continue with familiar routines. Oftentimes, the caregiver becomes like part of the family and a valued companion to the senior. If a loved one is having trouble caring for himself or herself but does not want to go to an assisted living facility, in-home care may be the right choice.

Facing the fact that a loved one may no longer be able to remain independent is difficult for all parties involved. For many families, in-home assistance is an ideal option due its mix of professional care and familiar surroundings.

Hair Restoration Systems: The Wig Of The 21st Century

Hair loss is a condition that affects both the physical appearance and, at times, the mental health of a person. Even during ancient times, people tried to find natural remedies to hair loss, including some products still in use today like coconut oil and aloe vera. While these old remedies help to make present hair grow healthier, thicker or longer, they can't replace hair that is missing. Permanent hair loss has many underlining causes, but there are now just as many options when looking for hair restoration in St. Louis. Hairpieces for men have become customizable and lifelike, making a person feel more confident. Read on to learn about these hair restorations or wigs for men St Louis.

Causes of Hair Loss

Hair loss, medically called alopecia, can be caused by many factors. Genetics has the biggest role in hair loss. Age is another natural reason for hair loss. Medical conditions can also cause alopecia in men and can include testosterone issues, thyroid disease, anemia and treatment with chemotherapy.

Innovative Hair Restoration

Hair restoration and hair replacement systems are like wigs, but they are more customizable to the person. These non-invasive systems can be made to match surrounding hair, and sometimes, length and style can also be chosen by the person. Unlike hair transplants, hair replacement systems require no surgery to complete. Instead, a bonding agent is used to attach a perfectly customized piece to the head so that it blends in naturally. This option is also easier on the paycheck than surgery and can be used for light or heavy hair loss.

Wigs have come of age in the 21st century, and hair replacement systems allow a man’s confidence to return without having to go under the knife. By getting a hairpiece completely customized to a person’s preference, hair restoration can be an easy and enjoyable process.

Staying At Home As You Age

Staying at Home As You Age

 The aging of America is well underway. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there were 40.3 million Americans aged 65 or older at the time of the last census in 2010. The continued graying of America will very soon lead to a new demographic milestone. By 2035, older adults will outnumber children for the first time. The Census Bureau predicts that the number of people aged 65 and over is expected to hit 78.0 million.

 

Aging in Place

Not surprisingly, many Americans strongly desire to stay in their own homes as they get older. This is called “aging in place.” Aging Americans that are concerned about personal safety and other daily life tasks now have viable options that make staying at home and living independently possible. Successful alternatives to assisted living centers and nursing homes do exist. Some of the home care services Massachusetts offers include adult foster care (AFC) and other care that coordinates meal prep, errands and shopping, socializing and housekeeping. There are both non-medical services and skilled medical services available.

 

Non-Medical Home Care

 People who wish to age in place have varying levels of need when it comes to the services that will allow the individual to remain in his or her home. Non-medical care primarily consists of custodial care rendered by a home health aide (e.g., bathing, dressing, and eating); homemaker services (e.g., grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and laundry); and companionship services.

 

Skilled Medical Care at Home

By contrast, in-home medical care consists of actual home health services given to patients by medically trained and licensed professionals as an alternative to receiving skilled care in an assisted living facility or a nursing home. This can include a wide variety of services, including monitoring vital signs, wound care, administering medications, blood work, and a host of other possibilities.

 

There are a wealth of home-based services that can allow you to age in place in the comfort and familiarity of your own home. Doing so can ensure that you have the peace of mind that comes with living in a warm, familiar environment throughout your life.

Tips For the Busy Woman Who Happens To Be The Women's Ministry Leader

If you're currently the women's ministry leader of your church, congratulations! You have the amazing opportunity to lead women into closer relationships with Christ, one another and their communities. Even though it might seem like a fun party filled with girl power sentiments, there's actually a whole lot involved in the process. It can be so overwhelming that you get discouraged. However, know that it's more than possible to do an incredible job.

Consider the following ways you can become an incredible women's ministry leader for the women of your congregation.

1. Develop a strong devotional life. If you aren't tapped into the source, you will definitely struggle to keep your sanity. This type of job isn't for the faint of heart. There will be times when you feel discouraged and disrespected when all you're trying to do is serve others. The key is to ministry is a relationship with Christ. Furthermore, you've got to maintain a real relationship with Christ. If your relationship is just for show, you won't be able to serve others adequately. Start by making sure your daily devotional life is active. Make sure you're talking to God on a daily basis. Study your Bible. What you do in private will sustain you when you're elevated to a public platform.

2. Build a team. Build a team that honors the responsibility you've been called to. As a result, they respect your leadership and authority. Your team is important because you can't be everything to everyone without burning yourself out. Plus, this is the point of a christian women's fellowship. You all are called to help and support one another in the journey. Assign someone to take care of the food when you all have events. Ask someone else to take care of the decorations. Leave someone in charge of email correspondence. As you develop a well-oiled machine, you'll feel more confident in your ability to lead and be led by God.

3. Create a schedule. Always prioritize women's ministry activities and tasks. As you're building the ministry, do a new task every day that will help the ministry move forward. Whether you're booking a new speaker, ordering gifts for the upcoming Mother's Day celebration or making a phone call to one of the women in the congregation, find ways to squeeze one task each day that's related to the ministry.
