www.SeniorAdvisor.com Promotes Regency On Twitter!

Written by

Our friends at SeniorAdvisor.com promoted us on Twitter this morning vis a vis an article I wrote for them recently.

We deeply appreciate it!

Regency loves healthcare related technology!!

Living healthier is what we are all about.

 

That's why I get a 'kick' out of this nifty little gadget just out on the market.

 

 

In a bid to improve their lifestyles an increasing number of people are turning to sensor-toting wearables, but your environment can be just as important as your body. CubeSensors are sensor-packed devices which monitor external factors and give advice to improve your relaxation, productivity or, in conjunction with a Jawbone or Fitbit tracker, sleep quality. Never missing the chance to sleep in the name of work, we recently spent some quality time with the little cubes.

The wireless CubeSensors themselves are stylish and unobtrusive little cubes which can be deployed in most rooms without worrying about disrupting the decor. Once in place they use an array of sensors to monitor aspects of the environment including air quality, temperature, humidity, temperature, noise, light and pressure. Feedback is given based on what you want to do in that room, either with a shake-prompted glowing light, or in more detail via a web app.

In the box you'll find a micro USB power adapter, a base unit which connects to your router via ethernet cable, along with the CubeSensors and micro USB charging cables (the CubeSensors can last a month on a single charge). CubeSensors come in bundles of two, four or six depending on the number of rooms, and what you want to monitor. We were using the smaller pack for the review, and this meant quite a bit of moving them around around the house over the month-long test to use them in bedrooms, the living room and an office. If you want to monitor a number of rooms simultaneously, we'd advise opting for the bigger packs.

Hospice Care Information and Education

What is Hospice?

 

Hospice as a strictly clinical designation means the patient has been given 6 months (or less) to live.

However, beyond purely clinical terms, none of us can predict the inevitability of any future outcome. Therefore, at Regency Nursing Centers of New Jersey, we place a special focus on the power of choice and the preservation of life and the quality of life in every possible way.

Hospice care is designed to be palliative – this means that its chief objective is to alleviate pain and provide comfort and serenity at the end of life.

Every life is unique and special; the end of life can be a time of profound awareness and contentment, or a time of intense fear and sadness. Sometimes, it is a combination of both.

The job of any hospice provider is to prepare and nurture the patient with ultimate love and dedication at this crucial time.

The actual care, involves a robust and interdisciplinary approach, including the promise of confidential comfort, care compassion and counseling.

You see, Hospice is not “a place,” but a philosophy of care.

This care may be provided in several different settings, depending upon the will of the patient:

In-home Care: Many patients desire to live at home and be cared for at home during their final months of life.

In-patient Care: If pain and symptoms cannot be managed at home, a patient may be admitted to an approved contracted nursing facility.

 

The ‘Heart’ of Hospice Care

At its very core, Hospice is about respecting a person’s right of self determination. Every individual has a right to choose how they would like to spend the last chapter of their life.

The role of the hospice provider is to help honor that choice by providing the requisite care to both the patient and the family, including:

The right to have their specific needs considered on an individual basis.

The right to maintain their dignity and sense of autonomy.

The right to enjoy the highest possible quality of life.

The right to actively participate in decision making and care planning.

The right to remain in the location of their own choosing.

 

Post-Life Care and Services

 

Everyone experiences the loss of a loved one differently. Grieving is a process that can take time, and it is the job of the Hospice provider to navigate these vicissitudes together with the family.

The first step of the healing process is adjusting to the new reality. A good Hospice provider will have a specialized ‘Bereavement Program’ which places emphasis on proving comfort and guidance during this challenging time.

In some instances, counseling begins prior to the end of life and while the hospice patient still has the ability to participate. Other times, the grieving family simply needs a shoulder to cry on and help with saying a proper goodbye. In many instances, families require help with resolving unfinished business and conflicting emotions.

First and foremost, the hospice provider should offer trained and sympathetic listeners.

There are at least several factors that can influence a person’s response to bereavement:

His or her relationship with the deceased.

The supporting role of the family in the care of the patient.

Reaction to any previous loss and their remembrance of that event.

The length of the illness.

The particular disposition of the individual and their emotional expression.

Overall health and particular lifestyle

At Regency Nursing Centers, we also encourage family members to avail themselves fully of our bereavement support and counseling during all phases of grief.

In the final analysis, it is always important to remember that hospice care starts before death but doesn’t end with death.

Instead, families need the emotional support to cope with grief in order to properly heal.

(CNN) Thank you Richard for the tip!

 

Filmmaker Evan Briggs had spent a long time thinking about aging in America, our relationship to the elderly and how dysfunctional it seemed. 

"What is it about our value system that makes it so these people don't really have a place here anymore after a certain age? Why are we OK with that?" she thought. "There is so much wisdom and life experience that our elderly members of society have that we're just not availing ourselves of, and that just seems like a huge loss."

When she learned there was a preschool in her town set inside a retirement home, where the residents and the children interacted on a daily basis, she knew she wanted tofilm a documentary there.

Briggs spent the 2012-13 school year filming three days a week at the Intergenerational Learning Center for children 6 weeks to 5 years old inside Providence Mount St. Vincent, a retirement home for about 400 adults in West Seattle. Her first feature-length film, "Present Perfect," explores "the very real experience of aging in America -- both growing up and growing old."

I just received this beautiful letter which was posted on the internet!

 

"My Dad was just at Regency Grande and the people are great and show them patience, dignity and respect and truly seem to care! It seems more like a hotel inside than a nursing home!

 

Sandi MacNaughten"

 

Wow!!

 

If "pictures speak a thousand words," then these words speak VOLUMES!!!
