Pretoria West Community Care Forum

You matter to the last moment of your life,

and we will do all we can,

not only to help you die peacefully

but also to live until you die.”

Dame Cicely Saunders – Founder of the modern hospice movement

Western Pretoria in the Greater Tshwane Metropolitan District is a low socio- economic area with a population of 214 967, which is 10% of the total population of Tshwane. The community consists of 70% White, 26% Black and 4% Coloured/Indian residents.

The unemployment rate has increased by 74% from 1998 to 2002 and is currently estimated at 39,72%. 9- 20% of the households have no income at all. There are 77 squatter camps in the area where 131 000 people live in old wooden huts, broken caravans, squatter huts and other makeshift housing. Poverty has increased by 150% from 1994 to 2005.

Smoking, alcohol and drug abuse is common in the area. No specific statistics for Western Pretoria is available, but for the Greater Tshwane Metropolitan Health District, the HIV/AIDS prevalence is 15,32 % and the cancer prevalence is 9.44%. Estimated cancer prevalence in the Pretoria West area alone is 33.35%. Patients visit the Tshwane District Hospital, Kalafong Hospital or the Steve Biko Academic Hospital for treatment. Transport for the ill is inadequate and this forces patients to walk to health care facilities.

There is a substantial need for day- care and home- based care services as the Tshwane Health Home Based Carers visit only 0.2% of patients in need. There are 29 old age homes, 15 welfare homes, 2 municipal clinics and 1 development (HPCA affiliated member) hospice in the area.

From 2005 to 2010, 144 patients were referred to Sungardens Hospice Pretoria, of whom 130 died and 14 are still being cared for. More than 90% of these patients had cancer and less than 10% suffered from HIV/AIDS. This is unfortunately only a drop in the ocean considering the actual numbers of people living with life- threatening disease. Many people suffering from life- threatening disease are not receiving palliative care and are dying painfully and without dignity.

The Pretoria West Community Care Forum was initiated by Sungardens Hospice Pretoria in response to an initiative from (HPCA) Hospice Palliative Care Association of South Africa to promote and provide “Quality Palliative Care for All”. Potential networking partners were invited to a successful workshop on 31 March 2010 where the Sustainable Palliative Care through Strategic Partnerships (SPCSP) project was introduced to attendees. The outcome of this workshop was that several organisations working in the Pretoria West area were keen to become networking partners of Sungardens Hospice Pretoria and to form a palliative care forum to promote and enhance quality palliative care for all in the area.

The first forum meeting was held on 5 May 2010. It was decided and agreed that Sungardens Hospice Pretoria would be steering the forum to develop a palliative care strategy, which is based on what organisations can offer towards palliative care. This palliative care strategy would be presented individually to all parties concerned to obtain their approval and endorsement and would constitute a formal memorandum of agreement between members of the forum. It was agreed that all the member organisations of the forum will be responsible to ensure that this strategy is implemented in the Pretoria West area.

MACMILLAN UNIT

THE MACMILLAN UNIT

(Please note that the telephone number to use to enquire about a patient on the ward is 01202 705291)

The Macmillan Unit is situated at Christchurch Hospital, and is part of the specialist palliative care service at The Royal Bournemouth and Christchurch Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The service offers specialist palliative care to patients with any advanced, progressive, incurable illness with difficult symptoms or problems. The Macmillan Unit is an NHS Unit; the NHS funds core services but a significant proportion of the funding comes from Macmillan Caring Locally, thanks to the generosity of the local community. In 2013/14 Macmillan Caring Locally will provide more than £1 million to support the provision of the service.

The specialist palliative care service is made up of an inpatient unit (a ward at the Macmillan Unit) with 16 beds and a dedicated team of inpatient nurses, a team of specialist palliative care community nurses who visit patients at home and in nursing or residential care, a team of doctors, a day centre at the Macmillan Unit which offers some complementary therapies, a team of physiotherapists and occupational therapists, a family support team, and a hospital palliative care team which sees patients in the Royal Bournemouth Hospital. The specialist palliative care team works closely with the Royal Bournemouth Hospital and Poole General Hospital, with GP services, and with community based generalist palliative care teams in some areas.

Patients are admitted to the Macmillan Unit for treatment of complex or difficult to manage symptoms, or to receive care when they are approaching the end of their life. It is not a long stay unit. Many patients are discharged from the Macmillan Unit ward with ongoing support from the specialist palliative care service, either to their own home, or to nursing or residential care, once their symptoms have been controlled.

Patients can be referred by their GP, or hospital consultant. Referrals are taken from doctors, nurses or other health and social care professionals; self-referrals from patients are also accepted. Patients will be offered an initial assessment, which is carried out either by a specialist palliative care community nurse, or by a doctor, or jointly – by a senior nurse and doctor together, usually at an outpatient appointment or on a domiciliary visit at home. Follow up is usually by a specialist palliative care community nurse who liaises with the rest of the specialist palliative care team. Patients who no longer need the support of the specialist palliative care service are discharged to their primary care team or their hospital team. Patients can be referred back to the service as and when appropriate, for instance if their condition deteriorates.

MACMILLAN UNIT VISITING TIMES

There are no visiting time rules at the Macmillan Unit. However we do ask visitors to refrain from visiting just after meals as we would like our Patients to rest a while.

The Macmillan Unit has a well appointed visitor’s lounge with wide screen television a children’s area comprising a computer, an Xbox 360 and craft kits. Visitors can make a hot drink in the beverage area and relax in comfort, or wander around the landscaped garden, aviary and Koi pond.

INNOVATION

In 2009 the Macmillan Unit was awarded Practice Development Unit Status, making it a Centre of Excellence. This was based on two years of work, where the Staff developed new innovative ways to improve patient care. The Macmillan Unit also has a Teaching Wing, where these specialist skills are passed on to local Healthcare Professionals. Macmillan Caring Locally is committed to invest in training programmes to ensure that as many patients as possible will benefit from advanced palliative care.

THE DAY CENTRE

The Day Centre is open Monday to Thursday from 9.30 a.m. until 3.30 p.m.

The aim of the Macmillan Day Centre is to improve the quality of the Patient’s life by offering much needed mutual support and understanding from the staff who acknowledge the importance of helping Patients to cope with their illness and the effects of treatment.

The nurses also endeavour to help them deal with any concerns they may have about the future and assist them to live as normal a life as possible, maintaining their independence.

The Day Centre Support Group provides a wide variety of diversional therapy activities. Many talents are revealed and developed giving a real sense of achievement and fulfillment. The group functions for the Patients’ well being and to enable them to participate in activities and benefit from therapies such as Relaxation, Aromatherapy, Physiotherapy and Self Expression.

FAMILY SUPPORT

Suffering from cancer is a stressful and difficult journey. Watching a loved one going through it is emotionally and mentally challenging, which can often be overlooked. The Macmillan Family Support Team (based at the Macmillan Unit) offer comfort and support to the Families of our Patients.

At a very difficult time, it can be hard to focus on leading a normal life, when all around seems to be falling apart. The Family Support Team provide valuable advice and will talk through any problems or issues whenever needed.

The care is available from the time that a Patient is referred to the Macmillan Unit, through to bereavement and at any time in the future that there is a need. The Team provides emotional and mental support, and offers advice on any financial support that may be available. This care is offered to all members of the Family including children.

FAITH

‘Macmillan Caring Locally’ built the Chapel at Christchurch Hospital in partnership with Christchurch Hospital League of Friends and the Bournemouth Free Church Council.

Adjacent to the Macmillan Unit, the Chapel provides a haven of peace within the Hospital for all denominations, races and creeds.

THE GARDEN

The Macmillan Unit has a beautiful landscaped garden, which is the envy of all the wards at Christchurch Hospital. It is funded by Macmillan and includes an aviary and a well stocked fish pond with waterfall.

The gentle lapping of the water tumbling over the waterfall, added to chirping sound of tropical birds, helps to make this stunning garden a refuge of tranquility for our Patients and Visitors.

THE FUTURE

The pioneering Macmillan Unit was built in 1974. Macmillan Caring Locally have set aside funds to rebuild the Macmillan Unit in 2017. The vision for the new Macmillan Unit is for it to be the benchmark by which future palliative care wards will be based.

Lifepath Hospice and Palliative

This organization has done so very much, for so many people, that it just kind of blows your mind. Anyone that has had the pleasure of working with or receiving services from this compassionate, spiritual institution is truly a better person.
Granted they are usually in our lives during the most difficult, trying and emotional times we may ever experience. Due to their organization, empathy, services provided and just plain well run organization, these trying times can be managed and coped with, with grace, courage and compassion.
If I had all the money in the World I could never repay them for their tireless efforts, preparedness, true concern, professionalism and just being there. I hear people in passing comment on their great experiences with Hospice, but when the life altering event has come to an end, it appears that they forget who sat and talked to them night after night or perhaps it is too painful to want to remember.
I want to go on record as being forever grateful to the staff and volunteers of Hospice. And now I feel it is my time to pay it forward. They are always in need of volunteers, to do any variety of things to help others and their families face and conquer trying and final days with loved ones. Anything and everything that can be done to assist them in continuing to do a service, that is like no other, should be done. Trust me when I say, I hope you never need their services, but if you do, be calmer in knowing you have an agency at your side 24/7 that has the experience, wisdom and resources to help you during this most difficult and confusing time. This organization is 5* all the way and in every aspect of life and death that they address. We are all certainly better off knowing there is a service such as this available, if we should unfortunately have the need for them.
Did you know they do a summer camp for any child of certain ages? They bring in pets to brighten ones day? Daily they call frail individuals who are alone, because the individual is fearful they will pass and won t be found, for a period of time? They honor our veterans with a simple ceremony and pin a flag on them, just to thank them for their service? Did you know 1 in 4 deaths is a Veteran? These are one of the topics we as a society usually don t discuss, but we all face more times than we would ever dream of in reality. it is part of life.
What s a girl to do? Always pay your debts and try to pay them forward.

Business Fraud Protection

Thieves have developed increasingly sophisticated and malicious techniques to steal money. They thwart existing authentication controls, gain control of customer accounts, and transfer funds to individuals hired to help launder funds and send them overseas–often beyond the reach of local financial institutions and influence of local law enforcement.

What are corporate account takeovers?

Corporate account takeover is a fast-growing electronic crime where thieves typically use some form of malware to obtain Online Banking login credentials and then fraudulently transfer funds from those accounts. Many account takeover schemes target small- to medium-sized business customers since their account balances are generally higher than consumer accounts and their transaction activity is generally greater, making it easier to hide the fraudulent transfers.

Constant vigilance against downloads from unknown sites or clicking on banner ads may be the only ways to avoid becoming an account takeover victim.

An effective tool in the Internet thief�s arsenal is keylogging . Keyloggers can be surreptitiously installed on a computer when a customer visits an infected website, or clicks on an infected banner advertisement or email attachment. Keylogging can also be accomplished via a hardware device plugged into the computer, which stores the captured data for later use. Generally small in size and adept at hiding themselves on the user’s computer, keylogger files often go undetected by most antivirus programs.

Thieves use keyloggers to steal the Login ID, password, and/or challenge question answers of financial institution customers. This information alone, or in conjunction with stolen browser cookies loaded on the criminal�s computer, may enable the criminal to access the customer�s account(s) and transfer funds to accounts controlled by the criminal, usually through wire or ACH transactions.

Other types of more sophisticated malware allow man-in-the middle (MIM) or man-in-the browser (MIB) attacks. In one scenario, the cyber thief is able to intercept the authentication credentials submitted by the customer and access the customer’s account(s). In another scenario, they do not intercept the credentials, but modify the transaction content or insert additional transactions not authorized by the customer which, in most cases, are funds transfers to accounts controlled by the thief. Criminals conceal their actions by directing the customer to a fraudulent website that is a mirror image of the financial institution�s website, or sending the customer a message claiming that the institution�s website is unavailable and to try again later. Cyber thieves may have the capacity to delete any trace of their attack from the log files.

Avoiding Fraud

It’s important for our business customers to understand the reality of the threats that face them today. Customers are constantly being targeted by advanced malware threats.

Commerce Bank has put together this information to help you identity any weaknesses you may have at your business, and give you helpful information to help you mitigate against any loss you may incur from a fraud happening to your business.

Carpenter Hospice, a dedicated team of angels in disguise – Burlington Community

Carpenter Hospice, a dedicated team of angels in disguise

In times of sickness and health, it becomes very apparent how important access to proper care and services is to those in need. During the suffering of our loved ones, we expect to be able to provide only the very best in comfort, compassion and care. Sometimes, we alone are unable to provide this without some form of support. The Carpenter Hospice is that beacon of light in a storm of uncertainty, to help families in need to care for their family and friends at end of life.

Carpenter Hospice provides palliative care and support for its residents through its services and dedicated team. There are 10 private rooms for residents with nursing and personal support workers available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It has a dedicated team, supported by over 100 volunteers assisting in operations, housekeeping, cooking, events, administration and more. All services offered to residents and families in the Burlington area are free of charge. Services included are residential care, wellness programs, music therapy and a bereavement program. Complementary therapies such as Reiki, yoga and therapeutic touch are all available as well. The hospice has helped more than 1,400 residents ranging in age from 21-108 years of age.

Established in 2002, the largest fund held at Burlington Foundation, The Carpenter Hospice Permanent Endowment Fund has been able to provide a source of revenue for the organization annually. Carpenter Hospice trusts the Foundation to invest and retain their endowment fund so the hospice can focus on the work that they do in our community.

Mary Parker, daughter of Frank Horrigan, gives a glimpse of the positive experience her family had in taking care of her father during his final days. Mary explains, “I wanted to give Dad the very best and provide him the level of care every person deserves. The hospice became a sanctuary for my family, a place of peace and tranquility. As we settled into the Hospice the struggles of life fell away. We were able to enjoy each other’s company as a family and took the time to tell Dad how much we loved him. We held on tight to each other and leaned heavily on the staff and volunteers who became our beacons of light in the storm. It is my wish that every family that walks these doors can find such comfort in their final journey to honor the one they love.”

Other families express their positive words of encouragement and support for the Carpenter Hospice staff and volunteers. “The staff and volunteers gave my husband the dignity and respect he deserved. We also met other families that were in similar situations and formed bonds with them. The support our family and friends received was so comforting at a time when we could barely cope. We are so fortunate to have the Carpenter Hospice in our community, to give our families and loved ones such exceptional care. They are our angels.”

Colleen Mulholland, the Foundation’s President and CEO, comments on the vital role the Hospice plays in our community, “Such thoughtful words for the staff and volunteers speaks to unconditional compassion, care and comfort provided at the Carpenter Hospice. Our community is strengthened by organizations like these, who take care of vulnerable individuals and their families during the most difficult times. We are proud to hold their endowment fund.”

  • Primary Care Doctor Shortage – How Does the Health Care Law Address

    How to Beat the Doctor Shortage

    En español l For years, Marcia Andrews visited the same internist in Washington, D.C. Then she turned 65, got her Medicare card and had to find a new doctor: Her internist was not accepting Medicare patients. Primary care doctors are in such demand now that they can choose not to accept Medicare, whose reimbursements to physicians are lower than private insurance rates.

    More and more people, especially Medicare patients, are having trouble finding a doctor.

    The doctor shortage is worse than most people think, says Steven Berk, M.D. dean of the School of Medicine at Texas Tech University. The population is getting older, so there’s a greater need for primary care physicians. At the same time, physicians are getting older, too, and they’re retiring earlier, Berk says. And graying doctors — nearly half the nation’s 830,000 physicians are over age 50 — are seeing fewer patients than they did four years ago, a 2012 Physicians Foundation survey reported.

    Soon, this fraying primary care network will face another huge challenge: Under the Affordable Care Act. millions of formerly uninsured men and women will have access to health care.

    We need to absorb these 30 million people, and that’s going to be a strain, says Russell Phillips, M.D. director of Harvard Medical School’s new Center for Primary Care.

    A fundamental change

    The approach most favored by experts at Harvard and elsewhere is to reshape traditional primary care: from a stream of patients waiting to see one harried doctor to a more efficient team practice in which patients with routine problems are seen by nurse-practitioners and physician assistants — trained specialists with master’s degrees. The team frees the doctor to spend more time with patients with more serious complaints.This change could be as fundamental as the one that took place when most family doctors stopped making Marcus Welby-like house calls.

    The Affordable Care Act encourages such a sea change, with provisions that aim to shore up and expand the country’s ailing primary care system while still reducing costs.

    The ACA authorizes money to increase the primary care workforce by training more doctors, nurses, nurse-practitioners and physician assistants. It includes more graduate medical education training positions, with priorities for primary care and general surgery, and more money for scholarships and loans for all health professionals. The law expands the number of patients seen at community health centers in areas with too few doctors and increases the number of staffers who work in the centers. It also expands nurse-managed clinics at nursing schools where nurses in training see patients who live in the area.

    Another key provision: a 10 percent bonus, through 2015, to primary care doctors who offer services to Medicare patients.

    But in these times of shrinking federal budgets, it’s unclear how much ACA primary care money will be available as Congress juggles competing priorities. Congress, for example, already has chopped about $6.25 billion from the ACA’s new $15 billion Prevention and Public Health Fund, which pays for programs to reduce obesity, stop smoking and otherwise promote good health. In addition, federal support for training all types of physicians, including primary care doctors, is targeted for cuts by President Obama and Congress, Republicans and Democrats, says Christiane Mitchell, director of federal affairs for the Association of American Medical Colleges, who calls the proposed cuts catastrophic.

    A recent study by the Institute of Medicine and the National Research Council reports that, when compared with citizens of 16 other high-income democracies, including those of Western Europe, Japan and Canada, Americans not only die younger but have poorer overall health. The researchers traced U.S. health disadvantages to a number of causes, including the fact that Americans have more limited access to primary care.

    Where have all the doctors gone?

    Today, the United States is short about 16,000 primary care doctors — the very doctors (family practitioners, internists and pediatricians) who offer the treatments and preventive screenings that save lives and head off expensive emergency room visits and hospitalizations.

    Why the shortage? It starts with huge medical school debts and ends with a doctor who is often overworked and underpaid. While students may enter medical school wanting to practice primary care medicine, they graduate saddled with heavy debt — $250,000 is not unusual — which prompts them to switch to a more lucrative specialty. The starting salary for a primary care physician is $150,000 to $170,000; a radiologist or gastroenterologist can make two to three times that.

    Only one in five graduating internal medicine residents plans to go into primary care medicine, the Journal of the American Medical Association reports.

    Looking for a Doctor?

    The best place to start is your state medical association. Many provide doctor directories that often include new doctors just setting up practice.

    If you’re a Medicare beneficiary, go to medicare.gov . Under Forms, Help and Resources on the home page, select Find doctors, hospitals and facilities. Type in your ZIP code and you’ll get a drop-down menu of medical specialties, including primary care. The tool provides contact information for doctors according to the criteria you enter — geographic location, specialty, etc. Call the office to check whether the doctor is still taking new patients.

    Clay Buchanan, a former lawyer, is one of those graduating in May. At 48, the Little Rock, Ark. resident is older than most medical students. He shadowed a family doctor as part of his training — and was hooked. By noon the first day, I loved it, Buchanan says.

    New York University and several other colleges are planning to experiment with a three-year program.

    Health clinics offer primary care

    Community health centers offer another form of primary care. Nationwide, the centers serve 20 million patients a year using a team approach, and are open to all on a sliding fee scale. Under the ACA, they are expected to double their capacity to 40 million patients by 2015. To entice doctors to work at these centers, the National Health Service Corps repays up to $120,000 in loans for each doctor in return for four years’ service.

    Technology, including telemedicine — which could reduce patient trips to the doctor’s office — also should help expand health care.

    Another way to increase health services is to give physician extenders — nurses and other medical professionals — more autonomy. Patricia Grady, director of the National Institute of Nursing Research at the National Institutes of Health, supports increasing the role of trained nurses, allowing them to set up independent practices where they could do physical exams and advise patients on exercise and diet.

    But that position has met with some resistance. The American Academy of Family Physicians and the American Medical Association (AMA) favor training more physicians and nurses but want to keep nurses in teams led by doctors.

    Nurses and foreign doctors

    Permitting more foreign doctors to practice here also would increase the pool of primary care providers. Last fall, President Obama signed a three-year extension of a visa waiver program that allows states to place 30 foreign medical school graduates a year in medically underserved areas for three years. Most remain in the communities after they satisfy their commitment. Still, the shortage is so acute, even the AMA is lobbying Congress to increase to 50 the number of foreign-educated doctors each state is allowed.

    In the meantime, more Americans are anxiously searching for a primary care doctor — or waiting months to see one. Marcia Andrews, whose Washington doctor refused to take Medicare, finally found a new doctor who does. The search took her 18 months.

    Marsha Mercer is a freelance journalist who lives in the Washington, D.C. area.

    The gym itself if really cool, but I m here rating an issue I had dealing with both the Fulton Street location in Brooklyn and the corporate office. I had been doubly charged for one full year, and this came to my attention in January. I went to the Fulton Street location, spoke to the manager with the initials LR, who told me she would take care of it. On January 25th I had confirmed my address with her so that the corporate office could send me a refund, in which the manager had told me to expect it in 7-10 business days. On February 21st, I emailed LR asking what the deal was with the refund since I had not received it. She had replied on February 27 telling me I am sorry for the delayed response. I have checked on the status of your refund. There was a slight delay due to our department not being able to view the original email that was sent out. I have sent them all of the proper information and confirmed that they have received it and you will be receiving your refund within the next week and a half. I apologize again for any inconvenience. Please feel free to conntact me with any questions or concerns via email or phone. On March 16th, I emailed LR once again with news that I had not received the refund. No reply. On March 26th, I emailed LR once again with news that I had not received the refund. No reply. On April 4th (two days ago) I called the Fulton Street location and spoke to LR. She told me that she had checked one week ago and was sure that they sent it out then. I asked if she could email me the contact information for the person she is corresponding with so I can contact them directly. She said yes. One second after I hung up the phone with her, I emailed her to remind her to send me the contact information. No reply. It s been three months since I was told I would get a refund.

    Garbage scam fitness company. Try to cancel because you move, good luck. Do not sign up here you can never leave. I tried calling corporate office and the execs phone messages system was full. Run away fast that will help you burn calories

    To Whom It May Concern: As Mahatma Gandhi once said, A customer is the most important visitor on our premises; he is not dependent on us. We are dependent on him. He is not an interruption in our work. He is the purpose of it. He is not an outsider in our business. He is part of it. We are not doing him a favor by serving him. He is doing us a favor by giving us an opportunity to do so. I wonder if the staff at Planet Fitness – Canarsie, Brooklyn would benefit from being made aware of this little quote. I have been a member at the Planet Fitness – Canarsie, Brooklyn location for over four years, and as a loyal member I would like to draw your attention to several negative features that have been constantly occurring in the gym over time. First, I have noticed the chronic unsanitary and unhygienic conditions that have been prevailing and persisting for almost a year. Whether it s during peak hours or not, the gym has become a dumping ground filled with filthy paper littered all around the floors; on the machines; and along the walls. Also, the floors are constantly plagued with empty water bottles and the like. Second, the bottles of cleaning solution are almost always empty and/or defective, proving them unable to use. After approaching the front desk to notify them on several occasions, once instance I was told that, my co-worker left to pick-up some food and I m the only one on duty. Even, I m the only one here right now and I m not allowed to leave my post. I find it unacceptable that sanitary inspectors fail to assess the cleanliness of the gym on a regular basis throughout the day, especially on the weekends. Finally, the machines are frequently in a state of disrepair and are inoperable more often than not. This degradation of service is unfortunate because I greatly enjoy exercising at Planet Fitness – Canarsie. I would like to hear from you about your plans for updating and maintaining the gym so that I can decide whether or not to renew my membership for another year. If I have not heard from you soon, I am afraid I will have to cancel my membership indefinitely. I eagerly await your attention to this matter. Respectfully, Ashaki J.

    58.00 cancelation fee on top of an annual fee. It s 2016, enough with the scams. We re not stupid and we all know how easy computers have made enrollment. PS 5 years working in gyms myself.

    Leak Masters – 12 Photos – Plumbing – 408 McGraw St, Queen

    408 McGraw St
    Seattle. WA 98109
    (206) 270-8000

    Kevin was very professional and obviously very knowledgeable in .finding water leaks. He was easy to get a hold of and we were able to get an appointment quickly with him. He arrived on time and got straight to work finding our water leak which turned out to be a very quick process. He clearly knew Plumbing and gave lots of good recommendations to us which were helpful. I would say if you have a water leak and you re not sure where it s that don t call a plumber call Kevin he will find it for you and make sure you get the repairs you re supposed to get and not extra things done. We hired a plumber to find our leak and it cost us almost $1000 without any results before we called Leakmasters. Highly recommended!!

    I contacted Kevin at Leak Masters after weeks of trying to determine why our community water association was experiencing significant water pressure loss. We suspected a large leak was the cause but had not been successful at locating it. After one household lost water I contacted Kevin and he came out on an emergency call. He looked over our well house and utilized a listening device on the pipes around the well house. He walked the water line with us and used his device at every location where we had exposed water lines. He checked the water pressure at every house. He identified one vacant home as a possible cause due to what he heard utilizing his device. He suggested we contact the owner to get into the home to check for leaks. He also pointed out that the drain field for that home was quite green and since the home had been vacant for some time and it had been a dry summer, this seemed unusual. When I finally located the property management company and was able to get into and under the house we found the leak immediately. It was very large and was bubbling like a fountain. Our community association members stepped up and we were able to cut and cap the water line. Once that was done the water pressure returned to normal. I m thankful that Kevin was able to help us pinpoint the cause of our problems. Tolt River Chalet Water Association

    Kevin has worked for me several times on numerous water-related problems. He is incredibly knowledgeable and is willing to spend as much time as it takes to get the job done. I would recommend him to anyone for their leak problems and beyond.

    Online School Blog: Top Three Cheapest Community Colleges in the United States


    #

    California Community Colleges

    The average yearly cost of resident tuition and fees for a California community college is $780.

    Many California community colleges have waiting lists for enrollment and they charge out of state students (even distance learning students) a hefty $207 per credit.

    Buf if you live in the great state of CA — California residents skate almost free at a mere $26 per unit enrollment fee.

    You can find a search engine for California community college online degrees and courses from California Virtual Campus .

    The network of California Community Colleges is the largest higher education system in the United States. They serve more than 2.9 million students. That would be similar to providing a post-secondary education for every citizen above the age of 16 in the entire country of New Zealand. There are 72 districts and 112 community colleges.

    New Mexico Community Colleges

    New Mexico has nine community colleges. The average yearly cost for resident tuition and fees is $1,125.

    Central New Mexico community college offers 225 online courses for credit making them one of the largest public distance learning institutions in the nation.

    Happily, New Mexico community colleges offer a graduated tuition rate, making them my first choice in the top 3 cheapest community colleges.

    Non resident tuition rates:

    Full Time,
    12-18 credit hours = $2,616

    Per Credit Hour
    1-6 credit hours = $44 per credit hour.
    7-11 credit hours = $218 per credit hour.
    more than 18 credit hours: $2616 plus $218 per credit hour.

    In case you don’t see the significance. you can take up to 6 credits at only $44 each. This allows you to get your feet wet in a part-time program for a very low cost.

    These are the nine New Mexico Community Colleges;

    Majors

    Albright’s ADP curriculum features an accelerated seminar format with intense use of the Internet as well as additional computer technology. Interaction between students is emphasized and much of this collaboration involves applied group activities.

    While traditional classes meet 40-44 hours per semester, Albright’s ADP courses meet for four hours per evening for five to seven weeks. Remaining class time is fulfilled by a combination of Internet usage and independent study.

    Through a special partnership with Reading Area Community College, Delaware County Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Lehigh Carbon Community College, Montgomery County Community College, Northampton Community College, and Warren County Community College, most associate degrees (A.A. or A.S.) from these colleges transfer fully to Albright ADP (and acceptance is automatic if all Albright transfer admissions criteria are met.) Albright College offers a $2,500-3,200 Partner Scholarship based on GPA to graduates of these colleges. (Any applicant with an Associates Degree is eligible for a $2,500 scholarship.)

    ADP offers bachelor’s degrees in:

    Accounting: The accelerated program in accounting prepares students for careers in public and private accounting and in obtaining professional certifications. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

    Business Administration: The accelerated program in business administration prepares students for a wide variety of careers in finance, banking, marketing and management. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

    Crime & Justice: The accelerated program in crime and justice involves an analysis of criminal deviance and its roots, plus an in-depth understanding of our criminal justice system’s successes and failures. Unlike other criminal justice programs, students are not trained specifically for police work. Rather, students are educated in the academic study of crime, criminology and justice in preparation for a variety of positions within the criminal justice system.

    Digital Communications: Albright College offers one of the only evening accelerated-hybrid programs in Digital Communications in the area. Focus on strategic communication across media platforms including publications, videos, and websites in the Albright College Digital Communications program. (This program is currently offered exclusively at our Reading location.)

    Computer and Information Systems: The accelerated program in information systems is based on common structures and degree programs in the United States and Canada. It also meets the recommendation of the Association for Computing Machinery, which sets a variety of standards in technology fields, as well as graduate study programs.

    Organizational Behavior / Applied Psychology: The accelerated program in organizational behavior / applied psychology prepares students for a wide variety of careers in social services, management, human resources, training and development. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate program.

    Information Systems and Management: Albright s distinctive new major in information systems and management (ISAM) is designed to provide students with both the technical skills and the business acumen required to excel in information systems and business environments.

    6 A.A.S. degree awarded through a cooperative program with Brookdale Community College


    The academic programs offered by Mercer County Community College are among the most diversified and comprehensive in the country. Included are transfer programs that prepare students for entry into baccalaureate programs and career programs that prepare students for immediate employment after graduation.

    The terms “transfer” or “career” simply describe the primary objective of the program. Many transfer graduates have been successful in gaining employment upon graduation. Many graduates of career programs have been successful in transferring to four-year colleges, with many of their MCCC credits being accepted.

    In general, both kinds of degree programs require no more than 66 credits for graduation.


    Because Mercer is committed to promoting intellectual development, aesthetic appreciation, and cultural awareness, every program of study includes a general education component. This component, addressed through a variety of courses, focuses on reading analytically, communicating ideas clearly, solving problems, and developing a broad base of knowledge. Students are given the opportunity to develop analytical, synthetic/creative, and evaluative thinking; scientific reasoning; artistic response and expression; historical consciousness; cultural awareness; and sensitivity to the contemporary world.


    Transfer degree (A.A. A.F.A. or A.S.) programs are designed primarily to enable students to enter the third year of baccalaureate study at four-year colleges. The largest student enrollments in transfer degree programs are in humanities and social science, business administration, education, criminal justice, and nursing. Other transfer degree programs range from architecture, communication and visual arts to engineering science and plant science.

    For many students, the transfer experience is made easier by “dual admission” and “program articulation” agreements between Mercer and other colleges.


    Career degree (A.A.S.) programs are designed primarily to prepare graduates for entry-level employment in an occupation which requires both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Mercer has A.A.S. programs as varied as accounting, aviation, chef apprenticeship, electronics, ornamental horticulture, microcomputer systems administration, television, funeral service, and computer graphics.

    Two engineering technology programs function both as transfer degree and career degree programs, with slightly more than half of all graduates transferring to four-year technology programs and others finding employment. Many employed students use career programs to gain advanced positions in their chosen field or to change careers. Some other A.A.S. programs also provide a basis for transfer to four-year colleges; a student may lose credits, however, if he or she transfers to an unrelated program of study.


    Many students enroll at Mercer for purposes other than earning a degree or certificate. The college offers four enrollment categories for such students:

    • Other college — Students take courses at Mercer to fulfill program requirements at another college.
    • Job Related — Students take courses specifically selected to enhance knowledge and skills for current or future employment.
    • Exploratory — Students are undecided about which degree or certificate program they intend to pursue. They may take courses from several program areas to help them select.
    • Personal — Students take courses for other reasons. Advisors at each campus help non-degree students select courses.


    Mercer offers a comprehensive program for students who are learning English as a second language. The multilevel sequence consists of two pre-credit and eight credit courses that emphasize grammar, speech, reading and writing skills. The free ESL placement test, arranged through the ESL Learning Center, should be completed at least two weeks before registration for classes.

    The noncredit preparatory courses are offered through the English Language Institute (ELI) at the James Kerney and West Windsor campuses. Contact ELI at the James Kerney Campus or the ESL Learning Center at the West Windsor Campus for further information.


    The LPN-RN advanced placement option offers licensed practical nurses (LPNs) the opportunity to gain experiential credit for their LPN license and receive credit for Fundamental Concepts of Nursing (NRS 110). Applicants must possess a high school diploma (or equivalent), have graduated from an accredited LPN school, possess a valid New Jersey LPN license and complete all the prerequisite course requirements for the nursing curriculum.

    Admission to the professional phase of the program requires a minimum GPA of 2.5 and a passing score on the HESI Admission Assessment Exam. Six credits are given for Fundamental Concepts of Nursing (NRS 110). The student is then able to enroll in Alterations in Health I (NRS 120), Alterations in Health II (NRS 121), or Concepts of Mental Health Nursing (NRS 123). Students must earn a minimum grade of C in all nursing, science, and mathematics courses to graduate.

    Please note that admission to either of the LPN-RN Advanced Placement program options are on a space available basis only.

    Students who complete the college’s Nursing program earn the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and eligibility to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurses (RNs).


    Cooperative education integrates textbook and classroom learning with work experience. Several academic programs offer cooperative education components. The program affords many advantages to students who are able to earn an income while attending college and earn college credits for their cooperative education experiences. In addition, many graduates find employment easier to obtain if they have had prior work experiences.

    A successful co-op experience requires careful delineation of learning objectives and employer willingness to support them. The college assists students in defining objectives and obtaining co-op positions.

    Tampa Colleges and Schools

    Colleges in Tampa, Florida

    There are at least 25 Tampa colleges serving tens of thousands of students each year. Institutions range considerably in both size and focus, but include both public and private colleges, universities, and technical or vocational schools. The following are just three of the largest colleges in Tampa (by enrollment):

    • University of South Florida. The University of South Florida is a public college offering undergraduate and graduate degrees in a broad range of subjects. According to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), USF’s 2013-2014 school year enrollment neared 41,500 students. Total estimated annual cost of tuition and fees that year was $6,410 for in-state students and $17,324 for out-of-state students.
    • Hillsborough Community College. HCC is a public, two-year community college offering primarily Associate degrees and certificates. Programs are designed with a mind for transfer to four-year institutions or workforce entry, depending on the discipline.The NCES reports that HCC’s total 2013-2014 enrollment exceeded 26,500. Total cost of tuition and fees that year was $2,506 for in-state students and $9,111 for out-of-state students.
    • University of Tampa. The University of Tampa is a private, not-for-profit institution offering Bachelor’s degrees, Master’s degrees and post-master’s certificates. The NCES reports a total 2013-2014 enrollment of just under 7,300 students, most of whom were undergraduates. As a private college, UT’s tuition and fees are the same for both in- and out-of-state students: $25,772 total in 2013-2014. On-campus room and board cost an estimated $9,388 that year.

    Prospective students can learn more about other public and private universities in the Tampa area below, or by visiting NCES online.

    Trade and Vocational Schools in Tampa

    Trade and vocational schools provide students with career-ready skills in areas like Allied Health; Automotive Repair; Legal Assistance; Criminal Justice; and more. There are several of these types of career colleges across Tampa, though many also offer online degrees for students living outside of the area. The following are two of the largest Tampa, Florida colleges providing technical or vocational training, as reported by the NCES.

    • Ultimate Medical Academy – Tampa. The Ultimate Medical Academy is a private, two-year institution offering certificates and Associate degrees in health-related fields, like Medical and Dental assisting; Nursing; and Healthcare Management. The NCES reports that UMA served 11,170 students in Tampa during the 2013-2014 school year. Estimated tuition and fees for that year, for both in- and out-of-state students, was $15,550.
    • Everest University in Brandon. Everest College is a large, national career school that served $4,318 students on its Brandon Campus in the 2013-2014 school year. It also has a second, smaller campus in Tampa with fewer than 500 enrollments. Everest offers certificates and diplomas, Associate degrees, Bachelor’s degrees and Master’s degrees in a wide range of subjects. Estimated tuition and fees for 2013-2014 were $15,156.

    Note that not all career schools report enrollment information, so there may be other large institutions not represented. We recommend contacting prospective schools directly to learn more.

    Careers in Tampa

    Tampa colleges are an investment that tends to pay-off in both earnings and overall employment. According to 2013 data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Associate degree holders earned about $125 more per week on average than workers with high school diplomas alone. Bachelor’s degree holders earned about $450 more that year, and Master’s degree holders earned nearly $700 more, or about double the average weekly earnings for high school graduates. The disparity is even greater for workers with professional and doctoral degrees. The same trend also holds true for employment figures: unemployment rates tend to decline with more education.

    The following careers reported the highest mean earnings in Tampa in May of 2013, per the BLS.

    Most of the careers featured above require advanced doctoral or professional degrees, but some of the most popular careers in Tampa, such as nursing, information technology, and criminal justice, require just two- or four-year degrees.

    Masters in Community Health Nursing: Program Overview

    Essential Information

    Master’s degree programs in community health nursing teach registered nurses (RNs) to develop, implement and promote nursing service programs in needy communities. Specifically, students are trained to identify high-risk populations, develop and evaluate health policies, and provide disease prevention services. Students gain hands-on experience in the field through clinicals and a nursing practicum.

    Applicants to the master’s degree program must hold a bachelor’s degree in nursing and an RN license. They must also submit GMAT or GRE scores, a statement of intent, and three letters of recommendation.

    Master’s Degree in Community Health Nursing

    Community health nursing students take courses that cover theoretical foundations in nursing, research methods, health promotion and disease prevention. In order to graduate, they must complete 36 to 48 credit hours of coursework. Common course titles include:

    • Epidemiology principles
    • Policy and professional issues
    • Management principles and practices
    • Health assessment
    • Health promotion

    Employment Outlook and Salary Information

    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment for registered nurses is expected to grow 16 percent between 2014 and 2024, which is much faster than the national average, likely due to the growing elderly population and the increase in the number of people who have access to healthcare because of federal health insurance reform. As of May 2015, the BLS reported that registered nurses made a median annual salary of $67,490.

    Continuing Education Information

    Completion of the master’s program qualifies students to sit for the certification exam offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to become advanced practice clinical specialists in community health nursing. The examination consists of ten parts and covers community health nursing foundations, assessment and application.

    Community health nurses holding a master’s degree can also pursue a doctoral degree in nursing. They may pursue a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) or a Ph.D. in nursing. The DNP is typically designed for nurses pursuing practical medical training, whereas Ph.D. programs focus on research in the field.

    Through a master’s degree program in community nursing, students gain the medical training and public health expertise that they need to earn licensure and practice in the field. The degree also provides the necessary foundation for doctoral studies in nursing.

    Baltimore. MD 21206
    (410) 918-2400

    We have moved to Baltimore, Md and during one of the flooding rains our basement flooded. It is an old restored house that still has a stone basement. We are planning on finishing the basement and to a point we are glad it flooded now and not after remodeling. We got several bids, Anchor Waterproofing being one. The owner s son came, much later than the 2 hour window they gave us. He walked to the basement and saw the stone walls and said we needed to have a mason repoint the walls and he couldn t do anything. When speaking to the owner several days before to set the appointment, she said that any water problem had to addressed from the source and covering it up wouldn t solve the issue. This is what the other companies said and they gave us plans and solutions. We selected another company. It was apparent, since Anchor only spent 10 minutes max at our house, that they were NOT INTERESTED in working on a stone basement. This is odd as they are located very near our house. This is an area of old houses and many, many have stone basements. The time spent waiting for Anchor to come was a complete waste of time. But at least we did finds other companies that gave us solutions. Don t waste your time with this company.

    Our staff is trained in the Habilitation approach to dementia care using the “Caring for People with Alzheimer’s Disease” program created by the Alzheimer’s Association/ MANH Chapter.

    Good Shepherd Community Care is one of the most trusted health care organizations in Greater Boston focusing on hospice and palliative care. Founded as Hospice of the Good Shepherd in 1978, we are the original Massachusetts hospice. After decades of caring for our community, we continue to remain an independent, not-for-profit, non-sectarian organization.

    We have long been aware of the profound and unique needs of people facing the final stage of life – their own, or that of a loved one. Throughout the years, members of the community have come to see us as an important resource as they navigate this transition. At the heart of our mission is enhancing the quality of remaining life, so that those in the final stage of life can live as fully, independently, and comfortably as possible. Our programs are reflective of that mission.

    Good Shepherd believes in the importance of mutual respect and acceptance and values diversity in our patients, families and caregivers, employees, volunteers, community, and partner organizations. We are committed to these values and honor the dignity of each individual through the care, support and education we provide.

    “We would never have been able to care for my husband at home without this level and quality of care. I could never overstate the excellent services and support we received from every member of your team.” – Family Member

    Example: There are a few times in life when a meal is so expertly crafted and planned that it is nothing short of genius. Last night, I had one of those meals – the Mahi Mahi.

    The dish was excellently prepared. Grilled, juicy, and fresh without a hint of fishiness. A glaze of tangerine sauce brought a hint of tart sweetness. The fish was placed on a mound of sweet plantain rice. The combination of the fish and rice alone was to die for!

    However, as only expert chefs can achieve, additional garnishes provided even bolder, beautiful tastes. Pickled onions topping the fish made for an even finer taste experience, while green beans hidden under the fish added freshness and completed each bite

You will get the skills you need to fulfill your academic and professional goals in a small and engaging learning community where the professors actually know your name.

    FKCC is an open-access institution (with the exception of the nursing program), which means that students need only a high school diploma to enroll. Enrollment is open at FKCC—allowing students the flexibility to apply and register for any term: fall, spring, or summer.

Its rich history and diverse culture create an environment that has inspired artists, poets, novelists, playwrights, scientists, and even presidents.

    What academic adventure will inspire you?

    At FKCC, we understand that much of the collegiate experience occurs outside of the classroom. You want to make lifelong friendships, develop as an individual, build work experience, and take in the beauty and culture of the Keys. That s why FKCC has a variety of student clubs and recreational activities as well as learning support and career planning services—to help you reach your goals.

    Welcome !

    Heart n Home is committed to the idea that hospice isn t about dying. It s about living and making each journey the best it can be. It s about living life to its fullest, up to the final moment.

Hospice doesn t give the power to shorten or prolong life, just the power to live it as you choose; to be at home, if you wish; to be pain-free; to be comforted and cared for.

    Carpenter Hospice, a dedicated team of angels in disguise

    In times of sickness and health, it becomes very apparent how important access to proper care and services is to those in need. During the suffering of our loved ones, we expect to be able to provide only the very best in comfort, compassion and care. Sometimes, we alone are unable to provide this without some form of support. The Carpenter Hospice is that beacon of light in a storm of uncertainty, to help families in need to care for their family and friends at end of life.

    Carpenter Hospice provides palliative care and support for its residents through its services and dedicated team. There are 10 private rooms for residents with nursing and personal support workers available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It has a dedicated team, supported by over 100 volunteers assisting in operations, housekeeping, cooking, events, administration and more. All services offered to residents and families in the Burlington area are free of charge. Services included are residential care, wellness programs, music therapy and a bereavement program. Complementary therapies such as Reiki, yoga and therapeutic touch are all available as well. The hospice has helped more than 1,400 residents ranging in age from 21-108 years of age.

    Established in 2002, the largest fund held at Burlington Foundation, The Carpenter Hospice Permanent Endowment Fund has been able to provide a source of revenue for the organization annually. Carpenter Hospice trusts the Foundation to invest and retain their endowment fund so the hospice can focus on the work that they do in our community.

    Mary Parker, daughter of Frank Horrigan, gives a glimpse of the positive experience her family had in taking care of her father during his final days. Mary explains, “I wanted to give Dad the very best and provide him the level of care every person deserves. The hospice became a sanctuary for my family, a place of peace and tranquility. As we settled into the Hospice the struggles of life fell away. We were able to enjoy each other’s company as a family and took the time to tell Dad how much we loved him. We held on tight to each other and leaned heavily on the staff and volunteers who became our beacons of light in the storm. It is my wish that every family that walks these doors can find such comfort in their final journey to honor the one they love.”

    Other families express their positive words of encouragement and support for the Carpenter Hospice staff and volunteers. “The staff and volunteers gave my husband the dignity and respect he deserved. We also met other families that were in similar situations and formed bonds with them. The support our family and friends received was so comforting at a time when we could barely cope. We are so fortunate to have the Carpenter Hospice in our community, to give our families and loved ones such exceptional care. They are our angels.”

    Colleen Mulholland, the Foundation’s President and CEO, comments on the vital role the Hospice plays in our community, “Such thoughtful words for the staff and volunteers speaks to unconditional compassion, care and comfort provided at the Carpenter Hospice. Our community is strengthened by organizations like these, who take care of vulnerable individuals and their families during the most difficult times. We are proud to hold their endowment fund.”

    Volunteers The Heart of Hospice

    Community Hospice volunteers come from many different backgrounds and walks of life. What they have in common, however, is a full measure of compassion and the desire to help others experience the best possible quality of life.

    All of our volunteers enjoy being with people and are good listeners. They are reliable and dependable, work well as part of a team. They bring with them a good sense of humor because they know that everyone — young, old, healthy, sick — feels better when they share a laugh.

    Many of our volunteers spend time with Hospice patients, visiting them at home, in the nursing home or hospital, providing companionship and helping out as any friend or neighbor would. They sit and talk, run errands or sometimes prepare light meals.

    Other volunteers help Hospice staff members by making bereavement calls, doing office work or by helping plan and organize fundraising events.

    Training

    Volunteers, like all employees, go through a screening process and background check.

    All volunteers receive comprehensive training designed to help them better understand our patients, their families, and Hospice’s role in the community. Training sessions are held twice a year in each of our regions. Volunteers learn what services they can provide and the best ways to carry them out. Our volunteers are well-equipped with initial training and continuing education, and receive on-going personal support in fulfilling their responsibilities.
