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.

Home Ownership Doesn't Have To Be A Nightmare



While research says that 1 in 3 Americans are reduced to tears while trying to buy their first home, there are ways to make this whole process much less stressful and less painful.

Buying your first home (and even your second home for that matter.) will indeed take a lot of time. So much time that just trying to gather the paperwork and documents needed for financing will be a major pain! Prepare to be up late, biting your nails, and pulling your hair out of your head. However, there are ways to relieve your stress and anxiety.

Preparing For Your New Adventure


Everyone has a dream house even though not many of us can really attain that dream house, you can get close to it. Before venturing out and finding a real estate agent to start showing you random houses, try making a list of what you would like to have in your dream house. This way the agent can start knocking houses out that they think you’re not going to be interested in. You might have a few ideas that you absolutely have to have in your house for instance; 2 bathrooms, detached garage, or maybe the biggest kitchen possible. Keep those on your “must have” list. You could create an additional list with things you would love to have but would still consider even if they’re not included. (Keep in mind that this is probably the biggest purchase in your lifetime and you’re in it for the long haul. Don’t cut too many of your “must haves” out!)

Getting approved for financing can be a real drag. You’re probably going to be playing phone tag for days or even weeks. They’re going to request paperwork you forgot even existed and you’re going to have to do real annoying things like call your bank and ask for the last 2 years worth of bank statements or dig through cardboard boxes to find pay stubs or tax returns. When you think you’ve gathered everything the mortgage company needs, they’re going to call or email and say they need 2 more year’s worth of bank statements and tax returns and your 3rd grade report card to prove your existence. (I’m kidding about the report card of course! Although, it wouldn’t surprise me!)

Take some time before starting the whole home buying process and find the basic documents and paperwork you will need. If you aren’t already filing and keeping records from everything and anything, start. I’ve learned more than once that keeping documents forever is extremely important for many reasons. Make copies of everything, put all of it into a nice folder and just spend a little time each day or week, finding everything you will need. This way, when you think you have everything, you can call your mortgage company of choice for a pre-approval and offer to scan or fax everything right away. What kinds of paperwork should you start collecting?

1) Bank statements
2) Debt
3) Investment statements
4) Tax returns
5) Proof of citizenship/residence (Birth certificate, passports, state ID, drivers license, social security card.)
6) Pay stubs (or profit and loss statements, 1099 for self-employed..

You’re Pre-Approved So, Now What?


If you haven’t already found a reputable real estate agent, now would be a great time to do some research! Start by asking your friends and family, posting on Facebook, and reading online reviews about real estate agents who are local to wherever you’re house shopping.

You’re going to need some cash down so hopefully you either already knew this and have been saving or you have a ton of cash lying around that you can grab! The mortgage company and real estate agent will help you figure out what you need down. If you’re lucky, you can find a seller who is offering to help or cover closing costs! (Typically 3.5% down for an FHA loan and 20% for a conventional mortgage.) The 20% can be lower but you should discuss this with your mortgage company and real estate agent to determine what’s best for you!

The actual shopping experience may seem like it takes forever or maybe it doesn’t take more than a week. You could luck out and find your dream house or almost dream house immediately and you may just have to deal with making your offer and waiting to hear back from the seller. One of the most important steps in buying a home and doing everything you can to make sure you’re not investing in a money pit comes next.

Inspections


Depending on the property you may need more than 1 initial inspection. Finding professionals who are reliable and trustworthy may be yet another stressful experience. You can learn more about what happens during a home inspection here.

You should expect to pay at least between $200-400 for a home inspection however, depending on your mortgage company, the type of property you are buying and any notes that your appraiser may have added. One thing is for certain, a 2nd opinion is always a good thing. The seller may say something like, “Oh, no worries, I just had the roof inspected and it’s all good.” or “We recently had a termite inspection done so, you won’t have to worry about that!” It may seem like they are telling the truth and maybe they are! But, hiring professionals to give you peace of mind is probably a very wise idea.

In my experience, one of the most expensive repairs was a roof replacement. We purchased our house with the understanding that the roof would “be good for at least 15 more years” and when we closed on the house, we were given an estimate and a receipt that the sellers had paid for a local roofer to come to patch the roof when spring came around. So, we had the roof patched when the local roofer came by and then again a year later and a couple of years later and then we found out that the entire thing needed to be replaced and as soon as possible. This was our mistake because had we contacted a professional to inspect the roof, we may have had some wiggle room when it came to the price of the house. You can rely on the pros like, Westchase Roofing, to come evaluate and inspect your roof and let you know what your options are. This could save you a great deal of money in the long run!

If you have any other ideas or want to share your experience for first-time homebuyers, please leave a comment below!

The Reasons You Should Hire Pro Movers When It's Time To Pack Up And Go

Laypeople move several times in their lifetimes. Moving is an exhausting experience in which high levels of stress lend themselves to more easily getting injured than when people are not stressed. Don't mess around with moving by yourself - here are just a few benefits of hiring professional movers to pack up your home's belonging and move it to a new spot.

Avoid The Risk Of Getting Injured By Hiring The Pros

Most people who have moved at least once in their lifetimes likely would argue that moving is one of the most dangerous household activities. Although your family might have the strength and stamina to move everything in your home without getting injured, you'll be better off leaving the heavy lifting to the pros.

Pros Cut Down On Packing Expenses

If you're thinking about packing the contents of your house yourself, think again. Professional movers have the skills to reduce the amount of tape, cardboard, and other materials used to pack the items in your house. Although movers always cost something, their cost often pays off.

The Pros Have Pro Tools

Not using the right equipment during a move can result in serious bodily injury, if not death. Rather than going out and purchasing moving equipment that you likely won't ever use again, hiring professional movers is a solid alternative because they have a vast array of tools and equipment to get the job done the right way.

The Best Movers Often Can Store Your Stuff Temporarily

Although storing your household's items in a storage facility temporarily isn't free in most cases, the service is well worth the cost when the need arises. Such storage services are great for when you're running late to your destination or simply overestimated how much space your new destination has. Now that you know the benefits that pro movers bring to the table, you're primed and ready to locate professional movers ann arbor. Make sure to thoroughly research the moving companies that you're thinking about doing business with before hiring any of them to move your family's collection of belongings.

You may want to pursue something such as freelancing or blogging and while that may take a little bit of work to build your social networks and clients, there are a few ways to bring in some extra cash on the side while you’re building your new brand. I’m not necessarily a fan of most MLM companies but, if you find something that isn’t already being sold by everyone in your community and you think you can swing it, go for it! There are many success stories out there and if you can find a company that fits you and your style, by all means, give it a try! Most of these types of businesses require very minimal investments so, even if it doesn’t work out, you don’t have to worry about wiping out your savings account to cover the cost.  

There are survey sites out there that are legitimate. It just takes some time to weed through and find those legitimate survey sites. Don’t expect a ton of cash from these either! Some will pay in gift cards and some will pay in cash but, you’re not going to be raking in the dough on a daily basis. There are a few annoying parts to these survey sites. For instance; cluttered emails, very tedious, time-consuming and you will get kicked out of surveys after you feel you spent a lot of time sharing your opinions. I very rarely use survey sites but, there are a few I participate in due to the extra gift cards I can earn for the holidays. But, this is in no way a way to earn a living or a way to get rich. It could be a great side gig though!

Freelance Writing


There are a lot of online courses you can take online that can help get you in the right direction of a freelance writing career. Once you start writing, you could create a portfolio and send to prospective clients and maybe even offer a few freebies so you can build your portfolio. Here again, this requires some patience but, if you’re not looking to get rich quick, this is a great opportunity. You can make your own schedule. Whether you’re only available to write on the weekends or after your kids are in bed, you have the freedom to choose when you can juggle your gigs and meet your deadlines.

You May Want To Consider


Online tutoring, teaching Chinese kids English, freelance proofreading, or if you’re really digging web design, there are lots and lots of businesses out there who could use someone to create and host their business websites and even manage their social media networks.

Amazon also has a virtual job board where you can find literally hundreds of job openings and some of these jobs do not require much experience. Some only require that you are fluent in different languages and some require that you live in a specific state. They do update fairly regularly so keep checking back if this is something you might be interested in trying out!

There are always Etsy stores, eBay, even Amazon for sellers, writing and publishing your own book, Uber, Lyft, and anything you can think of that you can do and have time to do that you think others might pay you to do for them. For example; running errands, walking dogs, house cleaning, all of these things will require you to actually leave your house obviously. But, you are still in control of your schedule.

If you keep your head up, stay focused, and have a positive attitude like Sam Ovens, you’ll be a success story too! If you think you might want to try a handful of these ideas, start researching online to see how to get started. You may want to start a few of these freelance gigs to keep on the back burner while you work towards your goal of working from home.
