What is the Sandwich Generation and how can Respite Care Help?

With the rise in an aging population, especially in the Springfield, PA, area, so many parents are doubly hit with the task of taking care of their kids and their parents.”

— Ian Bongaardt

SPRINGFIELD, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — It's that time of year: the kids are back in school! As a parent, this time can be very hectic. And the emotional barrage you fill if you are sending your child off to college can be bittersweet.

You feel so much pride as your child embarks on this momentous journey, but you also feel pangs of pain as you let go of your little one as the child moves on to the campus community.

You also get overwhelmed with tasks, having to plan, purchase and pack things up. Helping your son or daughter go to college and prepare for such a move is a massive milestone filled with pressure.

But what about your own parents? With the rise in an aging population, especially in the Springfield, PA, area, so many more parents are doubly hit with the task of taking care of their kids' back to school prep and ensuring their aging loved one, be it their mother or father, is also taken care of. Making sure an aging family member eats right and takes their medications and is safe and secure is the role of a family caregiver.

Today there are many Americans stuck between taking care of their own children and their parents. This phenomenon is dubbed the Sandwich Generation. Perhaps you’re a member of this fast-growing segment of people and didn’t know it.

When they’re not raising kids or working, they spend dozens of hours each week picking up prescriptions, running errands, calling doctors, driving to appointments, researching care options, making sure medications are taken, doing laundry, preparing meals – and worrying.

Add to that stress the burden of financial obligations such as tuition, mortgage payments, home health services and saving for their retirement, and – as you might imagine – sandwich caregivers are often overwhelmed, overworked and just plain exhausted.

Sound familiar? Fortunately, you have options for maximizing your time with your child – while also caring for your senior loved one.

Those options include:

Delegate.

Hold weekly family meetings and make a checklist. Include caregiving and college-related tasks. Divvy up the must-dos and hang the list for all to see. Keep others accountable to avoid heaping all caregiving responsibilities on one person’s shoulders – namely yours.

Ask for help.

You can’t do it all. Know your limits. Setting boundaries with your parent, spouse, siblings and older children are important. Consider seeking outside assistance when possible – the resources available to family caregivers are endless. From financial planners to accountants, a sandwich generation caregiver can get assistance with managing the budget and meeting set goals. Many communities offer caregiver support groups, like this one here that specializes in Dementia Care Tips. Just being able to talk with someone about shared stress is so helpful to family caregivers. Sharing feelings with others helps mitigate stress, rejuvenate your focus and keep you connected.

Short-term respite care from a qualified and dependable home health care agency like Comfort Keepers is a great way to hit pause and catch your breath for a few days of relief while Mom or Dad receive the quality care and attention they need.

Also, respite care is an amazing homecare solution if you have to travel for longer periods of time. Learn more about the respite care services Comfort Keepers Springfield provides today by contacting a Home Care Coordinator. We have a qualified caregiver or home care professional standing by to assist you with all questions regarding payment plans, Medicare, Medicaid, medical insurance, special needs, and more.

Create a budget.

Supporting a child through college while simultaneously providing long-term elder care to an aging family member can easily break a family’s budget, setting you up for the poor house. You need to be fiscally aggressive and set a manageable budget. To do so, determine monthly expenses and how to cover them within your means. But remember to adjust your budget early and often to prepare for any surprises or changes. Kids in school and parents at home can change their needs or lifestyle in an instant and you need to have a budget flexible enough to cope. Encourage your children to also create a budget.

Also, it’s become extremely common for children today to move back in with their parents after they graduate. Budget for this together with your child. Set reasonable financial boundaries such as charging rent if need be. Preparations like this can help manage a multi-generational household budget allowing you to provide the best quality of life for your entire family.

Take care of yourself.

So many family caregivers overlook this simple advice. But it’s hard to care for others when you are not caring for yourself. Avoid caregiver burnout by maintaining the basic life tasks, such as eating right, exercising regularly and getting plenty of rest. Listen to your body and your spirit as those aspects of your self will give you signs that things are getting to be too much. When you need a break, ask family members for a hand. Carve out time to recharge by enlisting the help of home health services agencies with Respite Care. By taking care of your own needs you will be fit and energized, fully capable of giving your senior loved one and your children the full love and care in your heart.

Remeber that it is OK to laugh.

Frustration, feelings of guilt, and plain anger are common among family caregivers. Being able to recognize these emotions and forgive yourself for feeling them is important. You need to be able to feel and to let those feelings go. Then you can get back on track with being positive. So doing things to help lighten your mood, and thus your burden is integral to your own respite. Humor is one of life's best forms of stress relief.

Being in the Sandwich Generation is tough, but you can navigate the stress and be a successful care provider by following these tips. Balancing the care of your family with your own care is possible, and you can get by with a little help from your friends at Comfort Keepers through respite services!

The Value of Respite Care for Family Caregivers and Seniors

Respite care, provided by a professional caregiver, offers primary family caregivers temporary relief from caregiving responsibilities, giving that person a chance to rest and recharge.

Taking care of an elderly parent can be fulfilling. It offers the opportunity to give back and demonstrate gratitude for all the sacrifices made in your growing years. The experience can strengthen the bond between adult child and parent and boost the quality of life.

Nevertheless, caregiving can be physically and emotionally demanding, particularly day after day with no breaks or help from others. And this can harm the health and well-being of the caregiver, and the cared for.

Respite care can be scheduled for just a few hours to give you an opportunity to get out of the house to take care of other responsibilities like shopping or to go out for lunch or golf with a friend. Or you can schedule respite care from the qualified long-term care providers at Comfort Keepers for longer periods, to go on vacation, for instance.

As a family caregiver, you may feel a twinge of guilt wanting to get away. However, scheduled, periodic respite care benefits not just you. It can be a relief and a welcome change of pace for your loved one as well. Getting to spend time with someone else–not that there's anything wrong with you–can be a treat.

Without breaks, caregiving can bring on stress, resentment, and depression. And you will likely pass on those feelings to the person you are caring for–no matter how much you try not to.

Alternative settings for respite care may include a nursing home or adult day care center. Or you and your loved one may prefer the comfort of the familiar, arranging for other family members, friends or a professional caregiver to fill in for you in your loved one's home.

For the benefit of your loved one, do not make respite care a surprise. Talk with your loved one in advance and involve him or her in the planning.

A few of the many benefits of respite care include:

– Helps caregivers relax and renew their energy
– Gives families needed time to pursue favorite activities and avoid isolation
– Prevents stresses that could lead to negative consequences such as ill health and divorce
– Offers the person being cared for opportunities for socialization with others

Paying for Respite Care

Most of us would love to have more time and more money, especially when we’re taking care of parents. The next best thing is a break from caregiving that doesn’t break your budget. Respite care costs are the most common question people have when researching the service. Several types of paid respite care can help you out and there are a few options for paying for in-home respite care. Even if you don’t feel like you need help now, it’s a good idea to know your options in case you need help on short notice later.

In-home care is the easiest type of respite care to tailor to your household schedule. By working with a licensed agency, you can arrange care to get a break when you need it. For example, a respite caregiver in the home for a couple of hours every morning can help get your parent get dressed and eat breakfast while you get ready for work or help your kids get ready for school. Overnight respite care can be a lifesaver when your parent needs round the clock personal care, and you need to sleep. Having a caregiver, you can call on will also take some of the stress out of being sick or needing to travel. Providing backup to you as a primary caregiver for your elderly person and getting them the personal care for their medical needs in their daily lives is the kind of skilled care that is covered by all Comfort Keepers care plans.

The national median daily rate for a full-time in-home health aide was $127 in 2016. The hourly rate ranges from $10 to $30. If your parent needs help with activities of daily living, Medicaid, the VA’s Aid & Attendance program, and private long-term care insurance all pay for in-home care service providers. If you’re using Medicaid or Aid & Attendance, make sure to see if they certify the program. And if you’re helping your parent start an Aid & Attendance application with the VA, know that the approval process can take anywhere from a few weeks to a year.

Police Use of Confidential Informants in Drug Investigations

Drug Charges | Scarpello & LaTour

Josh Scarpello

Many times police will use an informant to make a drug purchase inside a house or vehicle.”

— Josh Scarpello

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Police use of confidential informants is widespread in Pennsylvania. Police often use these "informants" to buy or purchase narcotics, set up drug sales over the phone, and provide other information that the police use to make drug arrests. What is not clear is who these informants are. As they are "confidential", people facing drug charges do not know the informant's identity, if they have a criminal record, or even if the police are paying them.

Pennsylvania courts have held that the defense has a right to know not only the identity of these informants but that they should have access to their entire police file. The defense may be entitled to know if the informant has provided credible or reliable information in the past and what the results of those cases have been.

Moreover, identification by the informant may become an issue. Many times police will use an informant to make a drug purchase inside a house or vehicle. The informant may be the only witness to the purchase itself. A viable defense to a charge of possession with the intent to distribute (PWID) of simple drug possession may lie in the informant providing information to the defense that he bought the drugs from someone else.

Drug charges in Pennsylvania and New Jersey are serious offenses and carry the possibility of jail if you are convicted. If you or someone you know has been charged with possession with the intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance, or criminal conspiracy, you need an experienced attorney to handle all aspects of your case. Call Scarpello and LaTour and speak directly with one of our attorney's about your case today.

About Scarpello & LaTour:

Josh Scarpello & Pierre LaTour are former Philadelphia District Attorneys who prosecuted DUI/DWI cases, drug offenses, gun charges, sex crimes, assault, embezzlement, and other types of charges. Today they use the experience gained as prosecutors to defend people charged in crimes.

What sets them apart from most other criminal defense attorneys in Philadelphia is their willingness to try cases. Some lawyers would try to force their client to accept any plea deal, rather than risk going to trial and losing the case. However, sometimes you need to try a case to obtain the best outcome. If you can walk into a conference with the prosecutor, unafraid to go to trial, your leverage is immense.

Hundreds Gather to Protest the Psychiatric Drugging and Shocking of Children

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights held a demonstration in Orlando at the Psych Congress protesting the drugging and shocking of children.

We want to know why ECT, which has been condemned as torture by the United Nations, is being used on children.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, held a demonstration in Orlando at the Psych Congress protesting the drugging and electroshocking of children.

Marching through the streets to the chant of “Don’t Drug Our Kids! Don’t Shock Our Kids! Leave Our Kids Alone!” hundreds of men, women and children made their voices heard at the 2018 Psych Congress in Orlando. Organized to raise awareness on the labeling, drugging and electroshocking of children by the Florida chapter of CCHR, the protest received tremendous support from those witnessing the event.

Currently over 8 million U.S. children are being prescribed psychiatric drugs, with more than 1 million between the ages of zero to five and reports show that psychotropic drug prescriptions among babies doubled from 2013 to 2014 despite the more than 400,000 adverse reaction reports filed with the U.S. FDA. [1,2,3]

Even more disturbing is the fact that the American Psychiatric Association is now lobbying the FDA, which regulates the electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) device, to allow them broader use of electroshock on the public, including use on children, stating “Having access to a rapid and effective treatment such as ECT is especially meaningful in children and adolescents.” [4]

“We want to know why psychiatric drugs for kids are being promoted so heavily to parents, teachers and health care professionals,” said Diane Stein, president of CCHR Florida. “And we want to know why ECT, which has been condemned as torture by the United Nations, is being used on children.”

In light of the fact that the FDA admits ECT can cause cardiovascular complications, memory loss, cognitive impairment, brain damage and death and that psychiatrists admit they do not know how ECT “works,” CCHR is calling upon the state of Florida to ban the electroshock (ECT) device. Those interested are asked to sign the petition. To learn more, please call 727-442-8820 or visit www.cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center Is Urging a US Navy Veteran or Skilled Tradesman with Mesothelioma in New Hampshire to Call to Ensure they have the Nation's Top Lawyers Working on Their Compensation Claim

"As we would like to explain to a victim/their family there is a direct connection between the mesothelioma compensation settlement, and the skill of the team of lawyers advancing the financial claim.”

— New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, October 31, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Most diagnosed victims of mesothelioma who now live in New Hampshire probably were not exposed to asbestos there. In most instances the person with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure was probably exposed while serving in the US Navy or working at a shipyard in Maine. Veterans of the US Navy make up about one third of people who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma each year in the US.

"The last thing we want to see is a person with diagnosed mesothelioma in New Hampshire to get shortchanged when it comes to financial compensation for this rare cancer. We put a huge emphasis on making certain a person with mesothelioma in New Hampshire or nationwide has on the spot access to some of the nation's top mesothelioma compensation lawyers with one call to 800-714-0303.

"As we would like to explain anytime to person with mesothelioma in New Hampshire, or their family there is a direct connection between the best possible mesothelioma compensation settlement, and the skill of the team of lawyers advancing the financial claim for the person with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure."
http://NewHampshire.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital Compensation tips for a diagnosed US Navy Veteran, a manufacturing or skilled trades worker with mesothelioma in Iowa from the New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center:

#1."Do not fall for a less than truthful Internet ad about 'no lawsuit needed, billions recovered,' or federal claims center,' because most of these advertisements are less than honest.

2."The nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys will want to represent a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma because the compensation settlements can be so significant. Why hire a local inexperienced personal injury attorney when the nation's most elite mesothelioma attorneys will want to represent you-and get you a more significant financial compensation settlement result?

#3."Please do not impulsively hire a law firm to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303 once you retain a lawyer or law firm for a mesothelioma compensation claim it is virtually impossible to fire them."
http://NewHampshire.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The New Hampshire Mesothelioma Victims Center’s free services are available to a person with mesothelioma anywhere in New Hampshire including communities such as Manchester, Nashua, Concord, Dover, Rochester, Keene, Derry, or Portsmouth.

For the best possible treatment options in New Hampshire we strongly recommend the following heath care facility with the offer to help a diagnosed victim, or their family get to the right physicians at this hospital. Norris Cotton Cancer Center: https://cancer.dartmouth.edu

High risk occupations for asbestos exposure in New Hampshire include the US Navy, shipyard workers, manufacturing workers, electricians, welders, plumbers, machinists, mechanics, power plant workers, paper mill workers, auto/truck brake technicians and construction workers. http://NewHampshire.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Rev. Frederick Shaw: Rallying the NAACP to End Psychiatric Abuse of African American Children

The Citizens Commission on Human Rights applauds debut of a new documentary highlighting one man’s fight against the multi-billion dollar psychiatric industry.

Today, African Americans are over-represented in foster care, the juvenile justice system, prison and the homeless, where they are candidates for psychiatric oppression—drugs—and other abuse.”

— Reverend Fred Shaw

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — CCHR, a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, applauds the debut of a new documentary highlighting one man’s fight against the multi-billion dollar psychiatric industry.

In a new documentary in “The Voices for Humanity” series on the Scientology TV network, human rights advocate Rev. Frederick Shaw, Jr. takes on the multi-billion dollar psychiatric interests in drugging and electroshocking children, especially in his African American community. As the international spokesperson for the international headquarters of CCHR and a Vice President of the Inglewood-South Bay branch of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), Rev. Shaw championed the national NAACP’s unanimous passage of two resolutions opposing electroshock treatment and psychotropic drugging of children.

“Psychiatry has never been a friend of African Americans,” Shaw states. And today, he adds, that enmity is shown in the alarming rate of African American children placed in foster care or in the juvenile justice system where they are labeled with a mental disorder as a pretext to be given psychotropic drugs.

Shaw is a powerful voice steeped in firsthand experience: A native of Compton, California, and a former Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputy he co-founded an organization contracted to serve at-risk youth from ages 12–18 years old. He found there was an over representation of African American children in foster care and the juvenile justice system. Here they were targets for mind-altering drugs, which he refused to give adolescents in his care. The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors awarded him for his work with foster care children and youth on probation. [1]

Through his work with CCHR, he also became aware that electroshock treatment—the psychiatric practice of sending up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain to treat depressed moods, while knowing that this cannot cure—spurred him to lead a nationwide campaign to raise awareness of the brain-damaging effects of the treatment and call for an end to the abuse. Last year, as a Vice President of the Inglewood-South Bay branch of the NAACP, Shaw helped obtain a national NAACP resolution supporting a ban on ECT for children, adolescents and young adults.

He also helped achieve a similar resolution to protect foster care and other children from psychotropic drugs. As Shaw points out, African-American children are placed in foster care at twice the rate of white children and are more likely to remain in foster care longer and less likely to be returned home. By the time they reach the age of 18, 53 percent of black children in the U.S. experience a child protective services investigation compared to 37 percent of children in general. [2,3]

The unanimously passed national NAACP resolution calls for legislative protections for foster children, stating: “Foster children are being given cocktails of powerful psychotropic drugs and federal inspectors found more than half the children nationwide are poorly monitored.” According to studies and drug regulatory agency warnings, these drugs have adverse effects, including stroke, pancreatitis, obesity, and diabetes. A variety of drugs targeted towards the central nervous system are associated with cardiac side effects, including arrhythmia and sudden death. [4,5,6]

• The Government Accountability Office (GAO) estimates that up to 39 percent of foster care children are prescribed psychotropic drugs. [7]
• The Congressional Research Service also found the number of children in foster care on a psychiatric drug was more than four times the rate among children overall. [8]
• An analysis of national Medicaid claims for foster youth found 49 percent were taking antipsychotics and 48 percent were on antidepressants despite a "black box" warning — the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) most serious drug labeling — that antidepressants may increase the risk of suicidal thinking and behavior in some children and adolescents. [9]
• Psychiatrists prescribe 93 percent of the drugs dispensed to foster care youths, according to study published in Pediatrics. [10]

“Today, African Americans are over-represented in foster care, the juvenile justice system, prison and the homeless, where they are candidates for psychiatric oppression—drugs—and other abuse,” Shaw states. “Therefore, I feel privileged that the Scientology Network chose my work for its Voice for Humanity series because it will further raise very necessary awareness about the abuses and racism that occurs in the mental health field to help put an end to these. It provides a voice to a wider community—those that may be silenced by drugs and electroshock or who are being forced onto brain damaging ‘treatment’ simply because they are Black or a minority,” Shaw says.

Rev. Shaw regularly tours community leaders and groups through CCHR International’s “Psychiatry: An Industry of Death” museum that details the history of psychiatry’s abuses, including racism dating back to the “Father of American psychiatry,” Benjamin Rush, who declared in the late 1700s that African Americans were “diseased.”

“Reverend Shaw is an inspiration to us all,” stated Diane Stein president of the Florida chapter of CCHR. “His dedication and passion to fight for justice is unparalleled.” Ms. Stein is also featured on the Voices for Humanity series for her work in exposing unjust involuntary psychiatric examination of children and other mental health human rights abuses.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Comfort Keepers Philadelphia Senior Care Book Cover

Comfort Keepers Philadelphia, PA..

Philadelphia Caregivers

Michele Berman puts out detailed guide that answers all questions about Senior Care

We wanted to address the primary issues that people face every single day with their families.”

— Michele Berman

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Michele Berman saw a need in the Philadelphia community and has moved to provide answers to all Philadelphians.

That need? Senior care for a fast-aging population.

The answers? They all come in the brand new Senior Care book she has published on the topic titled, In-Home Care: Keeping the Comforts of Home.

In-Home Care Options for the Elderly

Learn all About the Senior Care Solutions Comfort Keepers can Provide Your Family This informative Book on senior care starts with a question that you are likely asking yourself: “I need in-home care help. What should I do now?” When a member of your family faces the challenges of aging, you want to be there for them and you want to help them. But it’s a large responsibility with a lot of challenges that you may not be fully prepared to handle. You too need help and that begins with the power of information. Comfort Keepers of Philadelphia has drawn on its 20 years of experience with in-home care for the elderly to construct this informative digital guide that contains the answers you’ve been searching for when it comes to senior care solutions for your family member.

"We wanted to address the primary issues that people face every single day with their families," said Berman of the book. "We really hope it provides the comfort and answers people need to have peace of mind."

Berman went on to add that the book "is designed to help those looking for a solution to what can be a very daunting challenge: Taking care of an aging parent or grandparent."

In-Home Care Questions Answered

This three-chapter tome delves into the most important questions you face right now:

– How do you know if your family member actually needs in-home care?
– Once you’ve determined that, how do you talk to your loved one about in-home care?
– And finally, how much does in-home care cost?

Those aren’t the only questions you may have, but they are enough to get you started on the path to determining what is best for you and your family. Comfort Keepers of Philadelphia offers our expert, loving, In-Home Care solutions throughout the Philadelphia metropolitan area and we have helped countless families face these daunting questions.

To know a little bit more about the distinctive way we approach the care for your loved ones let’s delve into the concept of Interactive Caregiving. At Comfort Keepers, we provide your senior loved one with professional at home caregivers who are carefully matched to your loved one’s unique needs. But many other home care companies make that same claim.

What sets Comfort Keepers apart is our specially trained team transforms day-to-day caregiving into opportunities for meaningful conversation and activities that engage and enrich the lives of seniors physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. We call this Interactive Caregiving. We believe Interactive Caregiving contributes to longer, healthier, more purposeful lives for seniors; in fact, many research studies point to the health benefits of active living in later life.

An Interactive Caregiving plan is created for each client based on his or her personality, unique interests, health, and abilities.

About Comfort Keepers Philadelphia:
Owners Michele Berman and her brother, Marc Reisman, took over Huntington Valley Comfort Keepers in 2000, when their father, Richard Reisman, was diagnosed with lung cancer and became increasingly ill. They experienced firsthand the care and comfort provided by Comfort Keepers. In fact, Richard Reisman originally started the business when his mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. At that time, there weren’t many options for those in need of additional support and quality care. Today, the owners are proud to carry on the legacy of their father, but they are even more proud of the difference Comfort Keepers is making to those who need their help the most.

What are the Best Dogs for Seniors?

Benefits of Service Dogs

Dogs don't only make for great pets but can sense human emotions and can provide love and affection to those in need. Even petting a dog releases oxytocin, which contributes to happy feelings.”

— Ian Bongaardt

SPRINGFIELD, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Elderly adults in care facilities can experience a range of emotions, including depression and loneliness. Luckily, a furry friend may help a senior by providing companionship and assistance with daily activities.

Dogs don't only make for great pets but can sense human emotions and can provide love and affection to those in need. Even petting a dog releases oxytocin, which contributes to happy feelings.

How Do Service Dogs Help Seniors?

Specifically, service dogs can help with the following tasks:

– Picking up dropped objects
– Alerting hearing-impaired seniors to sounds, such as smoke alarms
– Bringing an emergency phone to the owner
– Keeping away strangers
– Waking up the owner
– Turning on lights
– Providing directions to a safe walking path

Benefits For Dementia Patients

Dogs can read and respond to people’s impulses and emotions, making them perfect for dementia patients and their needs. Service dogs can help dementia patients by:

– Carrying a GPS locator in their collar to help families find a lost loved one and in turn, help guide the owner home
– Assisting with daily tasks such as waking up and providing reminders about medications and eating
– Evoking memories and reminiscing
– Helping them stick to a routine
– Improving socialization and offering a conversation starter
– Keeping the dementia patient from walking out of their home alone

Are little dogs better?

In this case, size matters! It's crucial that you pick the best dog to support you during your golden years. Let's admit it; your energy levels are not quite as high when you hit a certain age due to health history. Dogs are known for their, often, high energy levels so choosing a small dog rather than a large one is the way to go…sike! Many small dog breeds have tons of energy! Much like your own health history, it's essential you choose a dog that is in good health as most retirees are on a fixed income and attending to a dog's health can be costly. Your canine's health records can indicate any pre-existing health issues your dog might have, but that does not mean your cute companion cannot develop any problems in the future. When searching for your perfect "pup match," make sure its kid-tolerant and easy going, especially if you expect frequent visits from your grandchildren.

It's highly suggested that you get an adult dog. Owning an older dog means you get to bypass all of those "first" experiences. You are likely to have a better understanding of its health background, personality, and will get to skip the difficulties and costs of raising a puppy. Before resorting to purchasing a dog from a breeder, be sure to visit your local shelters and rescue groups. Mixed breeds are known to have fewer health issues than purebreds. If you are set on getting one of many purebred dogs, make sure you research a reputable breeder, as you could end up with a dog with health problems or poor social skills. (Unknowingly, you could be in support of puppy mills if you do not correctly search your breeder.)

What Breeds Are the Best Choices for Seniors?

French Bulldogs

Martha Stewart's got one so why shouldn't you? Frenchies are known to be small breed with style, an extra spark, and a set disposition. French bulldogs are known to be a brachycephalic breed which often comes packaged with health problems to match. What does this mean? Well, Frenchies are known to have flat faces which affect their respiratory systems. Some even undergo surgery to persevere. By choosing a well-researched breeder, you will not inherit quite as many health issues.

If you end up with a healthy French Bulldog, you are golden! This companion dog is not known to be the most athletic, due to their health problems, but if you feed them right you have a great companion to walk with! If you're a light sleeper, it might take a few days to get used to their snoring problems, but much like people, dogs have flaws! A Frenchie's overall cuteness makes up for this little roadblock.

Poodles

Who doesn't love a big puff of fur? Poodles have remained a favorite breed for many decades, now. Equip with a great sense of humor (they aren't laughing at you, but with you. Promise!), personable, and very easy to train. Known to be hypoallergenic, Poodles require low-maintenance as long as they get a regular brushing and go to the beauty parlor for a monthly grooming appointment.

Popular among people who love tiny dogs is the Toy Poodle. If you are avid of long walks, a Miniature Poodle might be more fitting, as they are sturdier and have more energy for long, daily walks. Looking to turn your dog in master or tricks? You're in luck with the Poodle breed!

Schipperkes

Long live the Schipperke! Really though, this breed has dates back to 1888. Sporting a maintainable coat of hair and adorable round eyes they are always ready for an adventure! This breed is a great choice and down for activities, especially ones that involve water as the Schipperke was bred for to live on ships in Belgium. Just don't forget its life preserver!

Warning, these little cuties are fast! So be sure to keep them on a leash as the Schipperke is a lover of chasing squirrels, and is not afraid to show the little rodents how fast their speed compares.

Malteses

If you are looking for a less shedding, tiny dog, go with a Maltese. The Maltese is often seen on the show floor with long-flowing hair, but if you keep them clipped short a Maltese is a perfect fit for anyone!

Looking for a lap dog? The Maltese is for you then! Much like like the Havanese, Bolognese, Coton de Tuelar, and Bichon Frise in its general dog family, the Maltese was developed to be lap dogs and companions solely. The Maltese and the previously mentioned related breeds are known to be tuned in and attentive to their humans. Standing as one of the smallest listed kinds, Malteses are by far the most fragile and portable.

Pembroke Welsh Corgis

If your life consists of daily exercise, then the Pembroke Welsh Corgi might be the best fit for you. They are smart, strong-willed, and determined! Did you know Queen Elizabeth, of England, owned a Corgi? That's right! A dog fit to make anyone feel like royalty.

Held back by their little legs, they are not capable of quite as many activities. Unaware of the issue, Corgis are more susceptible to getting hurt. Mainly, they think they are superheroes and can do anything they put their minds to! Having bed and couch stairs handy is vital as their little legs prevent them from jumping as high they think they're capable of. Don't let their small legs fool you though. Corgis are not lightweight, so be sure to keep them on a well-balanced diet.

As some general suggestions, be sure to do your research and determine dog ownership that best fits your lifestyle and circumstances. Everyone ages differently and have different living expectations, so live within your means and standards. Just because you have ailments doesn't mean you shouldn't have a Golden Retriever or German Shepard to take hiking at age 70. They are great dogs to own! If you are an active senior and able to tend to a larger dog, then you should go for it! But most of us will probably be happier with a smaller, less demanding dog to keep us company in the final decades of a dog-loving life.

Nexien Biopharma Acquires CRx Bio Adding New Senior Management Talent

Nexien Biopharma acquires the Princeton, NJ company CRx bio. The combined companies and Senior Management look to develop FDA approved cannabinoid therapies.

Nexien and CRx both share a common vision of developing cannabinoid based and U.S. Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") approved therapeutics to treat specific medical conditions. CRx has filed 3 US provisional patent applications related to the treatment of convulsive disorders, chronic traumatic encephalopathy, and targeted pain disorders.

Nexien acquired CRx by issuing 11 million of the Company’s restricted common shares, of which 1.1 million were immediately granted, and the balance vest over a three-year period. CRx will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nexien.

In commenting on Nexien’s acquisition of CRx, Alain Bankier, Nexien’s Executive Chairman and Chief Strategy Officer stated: “I am delighted that we will be integrating this remarkable team, as well as their group of highly accomplished scientific advisors, to our existing team. I am especially happy to note the complementarity of the skill sets that both teams bring, as well as the common research objectives for the patents and related indications that we are pursuing. In addition, I think that Alex is a remarkable entrepreneur and manager, and I look forward to working with him on a daily basis.”
