How to Keep a Terminally Ill Patient at Home – making it

Keeping The Terminally Ill Patient At Home
(Making It Happen)

If your loved one wishes to stay at home up till the very end, then you need to make that wish clearly known to your RN casemanager, the social worker, your physician and any other hospice staff who inquires about your wishes. If there are other family members available to help out, discuss this decision with each other, and make sure that all family members are working together toward your goal.

Hospices can provide services which help during part of the day. At the Routine Home Care Level of Care, the hospice would be sending out Home Health Aides to help with bathing, dressing, basic bedside care and activities of daily living. They can sometimes send out home service aides to help with housework or cooking and other tasks. Volunteers from the community who serve at your hospice can also spend time with your loved one, freeing up time for you to go out if needed, or just to get a break from caregiving. The RN casemanager and other nurses will be visiting periodically during the week to evaluate your loved one’s condition, monitor for any changes, and to make sure your loved one is getting the medications and services needed meet his or her needs.

However, in some cases, you should be prepared for hospice staff who might attempt to convince you to bring your loved one to the hospice facility. While this may be appropriate for some patients, if you really want to keep your loved one home, you can. You, as patient or family/caregiver, have rights to choose to stay home, and nobody can force you to enter a facility against your will. However, if you do choose to stay home, then you need to mobilize all resources and assistance you can muster to help make it happen. A good first step would be to ask the hospice RN and the medical social worker if she or he knew of other community resources where you could get help to care for your loved one.

What can the family do to help keep their loved one home?

The family members can make a schedule of when each family member will be there to provide care so that all hours are covered.

You can ask for help from your local church or synogogue. Sometimes it is necessary to be willing to let others help out, if you are to succeed in keeping your loved one in the home.

You can ask for help from friend or acquaintances.

You can directly hire extra help. Help can come from nursing agencies or other sources. For example, if your loved one does not need nursing care all the time, then you could hire sitters from agencies or even directly hire people from the community. Some people put an ad in the newspaper letting people know that they would be hiring a helper and specifying the hourly wage they would directly pay to helpers. Many colleges and universities have employment centers for their students who are seeking part-time or full-time work. The students can often work hours that others may not be willing to take, and they usually do not need as high a wage as household bread-winners who are trying to support a household and family.

Whether you have the immediate family care for the patient or relatives, or close friends, you will probably need assistance of many sorts. If the family can come together and work together, that is the very best circumstance.

The hospice must meet the care needs of the patient and family unit. 1 The services which are required to be provided include family needs for support and counseling. If symptoms go out of control and the patient experiences uncontrolled severe pain or other symptoms, then the hospice must provide, in most circumstances, what is called continuous nursing care in your own home. which is around the clock nursing at home, provided by licensed nurses more than 50% of each day, with the rest of the care provided by home health aides. 2

A Registered Nurse (not an LPN) must personally visit the patient to assess his or her condition each day. If the patient’s symptoms are brought under control, then continuous care may be discontinued. However, if symptoms remain out of control, the RN may continue to have nursing staff provided around the clock in your home. After three days the hospice will re-evaluate whether continuous nursing care in the home can be continued. Continuous nursing care may also be provided when the patient is actively dying and very near the end.

The hospice will help you learn how to care for the patient at home. The Registered Nurse will teach you about the medications to be given and how to give them. If you have questions about your loved one’s care after normal business hours, you can always call the hospice’s on-call nurse. Whatever the situation, the hospice staff are experts in handling the types of situations that come up. There is much information available that can help you keep your loved one at home. Read whatever literature the hospice provides and ask questions. Discuss your wishes among yourselves as a family and with the hospice staff. The more you communicate, the better the outcome will be.

1 According to federal regulation 42 CFR 418.58(c) the hospice’s Plan of Care must state in detail the scope and frequency of services needed to meet the patient’s and family’s needs.

2 42 CFR 418.204 states that, Nursing care may be covered on a continuous basis for as much as 24 hours a day during periods of crisis as necessary to maintain an individual at home. A period of crisis is a period in which the individual requires continuous care to achieve palliation or management of acute medical symptoms. 42 CFR 418.82 states that Nursing services must be directed and staffed to assure that the nursing needs of patients are met. The hospice must meet your needs for nursing care!

    LHCR Earns Excellence in Service Award from Leading Age Ohio!

    In recognition of the Mercy Occupational Health Clinic that opened on our campus last year, Lutheran Home at Concord Reserve is this year’s recipient of Leading Age Ohio’s Excellence in Service Award. This award recognizes our willingness to pursue an enhanced quality of life for our employees and a great leadership initiative for our campus. Staff recently received the award at the Leading Age Ohio Annual Conference and Trade show in Columbus.

    After nearly four years of planning, the Occupational Health Clinic opened in the newly renovated area of our campus that was the former resident neighborhood called Sunshine Lane.

In addition, it provides new hire physicals, toxicity screenings and the treatment of minor work injuries for our employees and employees from other businesses in the surrounding area. Leasing the space to the Mercy Health System generates additional revenue for our campus and increases our visibility in the community.

    Within steps of their workplace, our employees can receive medical care quickly. Our residents are also beneficiaries of this goodwill because staff will spend less sick time away from the workplace. We are pleased that Leading Age Ohio recognized our campus for this special award. Please view our 90-scond video highlighting the features of this clinic.

    Bristol Hospice and Home Healthcare is formed

    VANCOUVER, Wash. Aug. 30, 2012—Prestige Care, Inc. a leader in exceptional senior living and skilled nursing care, announces that it has joined with nationally recognized hospice provider Bristol Hospice, LLC, a subsidiary of Avalon Health Care, Inc. to form Bristol Hospice and Homecare Northwest, LLC which will offer comprehensive home health and hospice care to Portland-area residents and their families. Together they will offer an expanding continuum of care that focuses on a family-centered approach to providing specialized clinical care to hospice and home-care patients by compassionate caregivers and interdisciplinary professionals. The joint venture will operate as Bristol Hospice and Homecare Northwest and will utilize Bristol’s proven care and management model, which is successfully replicated in several regions across the United States.

    “At Prestige, it is our privilege and commitment to personally touch the lives of all of those who are members of our family of care communities,” said Prestige Care President and CEO Harold Delamarter. “In Bristol and its parent organization, Avalon, we’ve found care providers whose care philosophy so closely aligns with our core values that together we’ll provide the highest level of compassion, respect and quality care to residents entering life’s final stages.”

    Prestige’s care philosophy is rooted in a set of shared core values that deliver on a promise to provide exceptional care, guided by a compassionate heart. Across the company, Prestige team members are guided by the four pillars of the company’s core values: respect, integrity, commitment, and trust, and they strive to personally touch lives every day.

    “Our mission to embrace a reverence for life and build a continuum of care that serves the entire community fits seamlessly with Prestige’s values-driven approach to providing quality care,” said Christie Franklin, president of Bristol Hospice and Homecare-Northwest, LLC. “We look forward to growing our relationship in Oregon and beyond in the years to come.”

    The first hospice and home-care programs will be based in Oregon’s Clackamas County. The programs will voluntarily seek Community Health Accreditation Program (CHAP) status—a process which includes access to and adherence with a set of quality and performance standards geared to drive performance above the minimum standard.

    Bristol Hospice programs provide hospice services to meet the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of patients and their families and caregivers. An interdisciplinary group of professionals and volunteers develops an individualized plan of care which includes, as appropriate, the following services: nursing, physician, home health aide, counseling, spiritual support, therapy, dietary, counseling, volunteers, durable medical equipment, supplies and bereavement services.

    Bristol Homecare programs are focused on the care continuum model. The Homecare Programs are designed to provide the following services: skilled nursing, therapy (speech, physical and occupational), home health aide and medical social worker assistance. “Bristol’s forward-thinking and well-respected approach to home health and hospice care are integral to offering a more complete continuum of care for our residents,” Delamarter said.

    The new company will expand Prestige’s ability to provide comprehensive hospice and home health care to residents within its family of Portland-area senior living, rehabilitation, and skilled nursing centers. Bristol Hospice and Homecare-Northwest services will also be available to residents outside of the Prestige Care network. Learn more at www.prestigecare.com and www.bristolhospice.com.

    Pet Hospice

    What is Pet Hospice?

    Hospice care aims to meet the physical and mental needs of a pet faced with a life-limiting illness. It begins the moment a pet has been diagnosed with a terminal condition and the family has decided not to pursue aggressive, curative therapies. Hospice exists to provide support and care for patients in the last phases of an incurable disease, or at the natural end of life. Pet hospice focuses on caring, not curing. We understand that serious illness profoundly impacts not only the patient but family and loved ones as well. Patients in the last phases of life deserve such care so that they might live as fully and comfortably as possible, and that through appropriate care and the promotion of a caring community sensitive to their needs, patients and their families may be free to attain a degree of mental and spiritual preparation for death that is satisfactory to them.

    Diseases or conditions that warrant hospice care:

    • Cancer
    • Incurable organ failure
    • Osteoarthritis
    • Neurological conditions, including dementia
    • Senior pets reaching the end of life

    What hospice services does Last Wishes provide?

    Hospice care begins with formulating an individualized plan, based on a comprehensive assessment of the patient s and family s needs while taking into consideration the patient s diagnosis, prognosis and available treatment options; the family s values, beliefs and resources; and our hospice team s philosophy and capabilities.

    Here are the goals of our Pet Hospice Program :

    • We provide our patients with a safe, caring, intimate end-of-life experience in a familiar environment, surrounded by loved ones
    • We focus on providing pain control and physical comfort to the pet, as well as educational and emotional support for the family until a natural death occurs or euthanasia is chosen
    • We give families time to adjust to their pet’s progressive disease and help prepare them to say goodbye in the comfort of their own home

    Hospice services include, but are not limited to :

    • Pain recognition and management
    • Oral and injectable medications
    • Fluid therapy
    • Nutritional and dietary therapy
    • Massage and physical therapy
    • Wound care
    • Reducing stress in the environment
    • Household modifications
    • Mental stimulation
    • Recommending non-pharmacological therapies
    • Educating family members on how to perform medical and nursing care at home
    • Educating family members on how to assess and monitor the patient’s comfort level and quality of life
    • Encouraging realistic expectations for the patient s remaining lifetime and the process of dying
    • Grief support

    How do I know if hospice care is the right decision for me and my pet?

    The decision to enter into a hospice care plan can only be made once an owner has consulted their regular veterinarian and carefully considered all the treatment options.

    Many pet parents choose hospice care in order to have the time to say goodbye to their companions, to plan for their death, and to ensure that all the decisions about the pet s needs are guided by their view of the pet s needs. If you have the resources to support comfort care, the time and desire to care for your pet during the last days or weeks of their life, and a good support team in place, then hospice care may be the right choice for you and your pet.

    How to Become a Home Health Aide

    Home health aides are a valuable part of any health care team. If you have a desire to make a positive impact on the lives of the sick, disabled, and elderly, this could be a great position for you to consider. Home health aides (HHAs) assist patients with completing important personal tasks such as dressing, bathing and a variety of hygiene needs. Additional aspects of this position include assisting clients to remain safe in their own homes by providing a higher level of assistance with minor cleaning and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) such as cooking, light housekeeping, and laundry.

    Tasks may include written documentation of patient care performed, patient’s condition, or problems to be reported to a supervising health care professional. In some instances, HHAs also assist with arrangements for transportation and planned leisure activities for clients. Some states allow home health aides to administer medications or check vital signs under the supervision of a health care practitioner such as a registered nurse (RN). Although the administration of medications by HHAs continues to be somewhat controversial, states have been increasing consideration to allow this job function within regulations. States such as Missouri, Arkansas, Colorado, and New Jersey now permit HHAs to perform a wider range of services.

    If a person wants to enter the health care field, the job function as a home health aide offers considerable reward, enabling the individual to focus on providing patients hands-on care with a personal touch. The length of time to obtain education for such a position is much shorter than one might think.

    The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that the overall mean wage for home health aides is $22,400, up from $21,020; that’s an increase of over $1300.00 in just one year. The median salary is $21,380, or $10.28 per hour. Wages vary based on geography and working environment; certified HHAs account for much of the higher reported wages, as a consequence of varying geographic and workplace requirements. The lowest 10% of HHAs earn $17,040 annually, while the highest 10% earn $29,560.

    According to the US News World Report on the Best Health Care Jobs of 2015, home health aide rank #23 as one of the fastest growing positions on their list. As the population ages, so does the need for the level of assistance that can be provided by HHAs. Many seniors prefer to remain in their own homes as long as possible; having the assistance of home health aides supports this option. The Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that there will be a rapid growth of 48% within this industry between the years 2012 and 2022, which means demand for approximately 424,000 new home health aides. Certified HHAs have more options for employment consideration than those not taking the certification training.

    Requirements

    Education

    There are no formal education requirements for home health aides, but most aides do possess a high school diploma. Aides choosing to work in a certified home health or hospice agency are required to obtain formal training and pass a standardized test, often including a hands-on demonstration of competency on associated topics in the presence of a registered nurse. Some preparatory classes are offered at various community colleges or through vocational/technical schools that ensure students meet the educational requirements before they are permitted to work with a client independently. Most classes require students to be at least 18 years of age.

    Training

    If formal training is required in the state in which you live, it is often performed by a licensed RN. Some states require the formal training by an RN, as well as the standardized testing and hands-on competency assessment, before an HHA is permitted to work with a client. If your state does not have these requirements, the training can often be instructed by other experienced HHAs or health care professionals with various levels of education, as well as family members. Much instruction in those settings is completed with on-the-job training and return demonstration.

    Educational programs and on-the-job training are beneficial to learn overarching necessary skills; however, each client will have unique needs that may require additional training that lasts from a few hours to a few days, depending on the complexity of the patient’s health care needs. Examples of patient-specific needs may include special dietary needs for those patients requiring dietary/cooking assistance, or specific transfer techniques to ensure patient safety.

    In some states, certified home health agencies may provide the required training classes, the standardized written testing, and hands-on competency assessments in order for candidates to be considered for patient assignments once hired. Standard skill sets include learning basic safety techniques when working with patients, not only to keep the patient safe, but to prevent injury to the HHA when completing tasks such as transfers, bathing and dressing. Training will also include emergency response skills, such as basic first aid training and cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The associated expenses with completing these training programs can vary from a couple hundred dollars to nothing at all if the agency is providing the training to new employees.

    Licensing/Certification

    Home health aides do not hold professional licensures; however, many employers require their HHAs to be certified, either due to preference or due to state regulation requirements. The certification process includes the successful completion of a minimum of 75 hours of training and hands-on skills. Several states actually require up to 120+ hours. Refer to State-by-State Training Requirements for exact requirements in your state; details can be reviewed either by the map or in an easier-to-understand table format.

    The aide must then pass the standardized written testing, as well as complete a hands-on demonstration of each associated skill appropriately.

    Necessary Skills and Qualities

    Performing the duties of a home health aide can be physically demanding at times. In order to perform this job, a person must be able to lift at least 50 lbs. and must primarily be in good health. Because aides focus on direct patient care, patience is a necessity, as are dependability, effective interpersonal skills, good communication, and effective time management. According to the US Department of Labor (DOL), HHAs sustain on-the-job injuries and illnesses at a higher-than-average rate compared with people in other occupations. Most employers require an applicant to pass a criminal background check that includes checking for elder or child abuse and neglect. The applicant must also complete testing for tuberculosis (TB) and test negative before working with patients. In addition, many employers require drug testing prior to completion of the hire process.

Aides can use this job as an entry way into larger managerial opportunities, such as nursing home manager. which come with better pay and benefits.

    The median, or middle 50 percent, of workers in the home health aide field earned slightly less at $21,020 annually, or $10.10 per hour. The highest paying employers for home health aides are physicians’ offices and psychiatric hospitals, which pay $27,490 and $37,380 per year, respectively. The more than 300,000 working directly for home health care service providers earn $21,830 per year, or $10.50 per hour.

    Care home jobs

    Broadly speaking, regardless of type of job, if you work in a care home you are working to support care home residents. Some jobs are infrastructural administrative or domestic jobs – meaning that you might work on estates, in admin, in the kitchens or as a cleaner (these are not the kind of jobs we list). The rest (and the kind of jobs we do list on this site) centre around service user support, therapy, management, support and care.

    Recently, there has been some discussion of the changing dynamics of societal make-up. We are all starting to live longer and less of us are having babies or living with traditional family units.

    There are currently just over 20,000 care homes in the UK. There was a mass of home closures in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s which prompted concern about the UK’s general ability to cope with the level of demand. Specifically, there were worries about the impact on hospital beds due to vulnerable people having nowhere else to go.

    In Spring 2001, the Office for National Statistics noted that the number of households with 3 generations (i.e. child, parent and grandparent) was under 1%. As a culture, we just don’t look after our elderly within our family homes anymore.

    Government projections expect the number of elderly people to rise by up to 40% by 2031. The Actuary Department expects 36,000 of these to be over 100 years old with 5% of the UK’s total population aged over 85 by 2034. By 2046, it is expected that the number of those aged over 85 will have tripled to 3.3 million people with further increases to 16.8 million by 2051.

    As such, the Government predicts that the number of care home places will need to double to 1.13 million by 2051. The highest increases are predicted to take place within the North-East, South-East and East Anglia.

    With reference to those in care now, current estimates by the Alzheimer’s Society place the number of older people in care homes with dementia at 75%.

    This level of dementia extrapolated alongside the predicted increase in the elderly translates to a great many care home jobs and nursing home jobs opportunities within the next quarter-century. Now, more than ever, the decision to move into care home work is a good one.

    So, what are care home jobs about…. The residents will live in a care home for a real variety of reasons but the fundamentals don’t change. Basic tasks include help with their hygiene, medication regimes, socialisation, trips out and making sure they get enough to eat. Again, it might be that you help with the direct health care or a more supportive role (such as making sure the kitchen is clean enough to cook in!)

    Obviously, care home jobs will be in care homes but the location of these will vary too. Care homes can be found in urban settings, surburban settings and out in the countryside. So whether you’re a cosmopolitan city-dweller, thoughtful nature-lover or snuggled-down surburbanite, you’ll be able to find a care home job near you!

    Do I need special qualifications for this kind of work?

    Well, it all depends on what you want to do! If you’re interested in a standard, entry-level care worker job, then the answer is ‘probably not’. Some places like to see an NVQ in Care (or a related/relevant subject) and often, they’ll want you to undertake an NVQ whilst on the job but, strictly speaking, you aren’t likely to need a special qualification.

    If you’re considering working in care management, then you certainly will need some kind of advanced qualification plus several years in the job. NVQs at Level 4 and 5 are desirable; a degree in health care management is also attractive.

    If you’re considering an in-house therapeutic or nursing position, then you’ll need the requisite qualifications, training and registration. As a nurse, you’ll train for 3 years and then register with the Nursing and Midwifery Council; in a role like occupational therapist, you’ll train again for around 3 years and then register with the Health and Care Professions Council.

    If you want to provide practical services – such as gardening or chef work – to a care home, you’ll likely need qualifications here too. If you’re self-employed, your track record may prove sufficient but for jobs involving hygiene (like cooking or cleaning), you will definitely need to show that you understand the specifics of safe practice and legislative expectations.

    What sort of person suits care home jobs?

    The clue’s in the name….you need to be caring. Care home jobs involve helping some of society’s most vulnerable people so kindness, friendliness, empathy and genuinely caring about their welfare will see you a long way in care home jobs. An easy and open disposition will pout service users at ease and make sure that you’re a great team member.

    Stamina and endurance are often needed too. Hours can be long in care homes – especially if you pull a double shift or have two shifts split by sleeping in at the care home. Sometimes, you may work what is known as a ‘waking night’, where you’ll either need to prepare to be woken regularly or are on a schedule where a service user needs checking regularly.

    Moreover, service users often need support with things like getting in and out or bed or bath. You’ll never be expected to physically lift them yourself (run a mile and report your employer if you are!) but there will be hoist equipment that still requires a bit of effort and concentration.

    Is there much career progression to be found in care home work?

    Absolutely. The clearest path to the top is by working as a support worker. You start out as an entry-level support worker, cut your teeth and move up to senior and then set your sights on management. Within the decade, you could start to consider running your own care home or applying for regional and national management posts with the larger care providers – assuming you’ve kept your studies in management and legislation up to date too.

    You also may find that you want to change career itself whilst remaining in the care home environment – if so, your experience will count for a lot during your course application and with luck, you may even find prior training counts towards your new qualification!

    Home care jobs

    Home care jobs offer an opportunity to work with people in their own homes. It’s about taking care and treatment to people, in situations familiar to them and the surroundings that they feel most comfortable in.

    Home care jobs are, arguably, the key link between healthcare and social care. This is because they enable clients to become independent: to recover, rehabilitate, heal, interact… to cope and lead as normal a life as possible given their social or health issues.

    The relevant point here is that jobs in home care are about providing clients and patients with a degree of support while, at the same time, enabling them to remain independent.

    Why is there so much emphasis on home care?

    Educated estimates of the cost to the NHS to fund long-term elderly care were put at £4.23bn in late 2010. The UK has a growing elderly population. During the first decade of the 21st Century the UK’s health care service saw a huge increase in the number of hospital admissions for those aged over 60. Combine that with the restraints on hospital funding between 2010-2015 and you can see why there’s been such a huge emphasis on the importance of delivering home care in the UK (according to The Times, October 29th 2010, over 75s hospital stays increased by over 60% between 2000-2010). Fulfilling elderly care needs with enough qualified or trained staff will become one of the UK’s biggest recruitment challenges.

    It’s inevitable then that we will see an increase in the number of home care jobs; it’s a trend that is guaranteed to continue. And not just elderly care jobs either. Analysts and healthcare experts feel the NHS will fail if hospital stays are not reduced by increasing focus, funds and energy on social care, whether it is for the elderly or the young, those with learning disabilities or mental health needs. The push for more home care was no doubt one of the drivers behind social care (as an industry) being bundled through the 2010 spending review cuts with relative impunity. It’s felt that the UK Government is hoping to save over £2.5bn by increasing and improving home care.

    So, it is believed, much can be achieved through good home health care: effective clinical treatment, nutritional advice, therapeutic care, rehabilitation… the list goes on. Good home care, organised well, allows resources to be lifted from the responsibility of hospitals, and reducing hospital admissions numbers.

    Medicare Coverage of Home Health Care #skaket #beach #motel

    Medicare Coverage of Home Health Care

    Progressive health care professionals often encourage people to get out of hospitals and nursing facilities and into their own or family members’ homes while recovering from injury or illness. With less honorable motives, insurance companies also pressure hospitals to release patients earlier so that if they continue to receive care, it will be a less costly variety at home.

    In response to both these movements, many new home health care agencies have sprung up. You’re increasingly likely to find such an agency in your local area. Most are able to provide care for patients who no longer need high-level care in a hospital but who still require part-time nursing or rehabilitative therapy.

    When Medicare Will Cover Home Health Care

    For your home heath care to be covered by Medicare, your situation must meet this list of requirements.

    • Your doctor must have prescribed home health care for you.
    • You must require part-time skilled nursing care or physical, speech, or occupational therapy.
    • The home health care must be provided by a Medicare-approved agency.
    • You must be confined to your home by an injury, illness, or other medical condition. (If you need nursing care or other medical services but you are physically able to leave home to receive it, you might not be eligible for Medicare home health care coverage.)
    • Your doctor must help set up a care plan in cooperation with the home health care agency.

    Medicare sometimes used to also require that your condition be expected to improve with home health care, but a recent change allows you to qualify for home health care just to maintain your condition or to slow deterioration of your condition.

    If you require full-time nursing care, Medicare will not approve home health care, but it could cover a skilled nursing facility. For more information, see our article on Medicare coverage for skilled nursing care .

    What Medicare Will Pay For

    Medicare Part A pays 100% of the cost of your covered home health care, and there is no limit on the number of visits to your home for which Medicare will pay. Medicare will also pay for the initial evaluation by a home care agency, if prescribed by your physician, to determine whether you are a good candidate for home care. (Note that Medicare Part A only pas for home health care that follows a prior three-day hospital stay. Otherwise Medicare Part B (medical insurance) pays for home health services.)

    Medicare will pay for 100% of the following services related to home health care:

    • part-time skilled nursing care—usually two to three visits per week in a plan certified by a physician
    • physical therapy
    • speech therapy, and/or
    • occupational therapy.

    If you are receiving home health care for one of the above, Medicare can also pay for:

    • personal care by part-time home health aides
    • medical social services, and
    • medical supplies and equipment provided by the agency, such as a hospital bed, a walker, or respiratory equipment.

    What Medicare Will Not Cover

    Medicare will not pay for a number of services sometimes provided as part of home health care, including:

    • drugs and biologicals administered at home
    • personal care by part-time home health aides if this is the only care you need
    • meals delivered to your home
    • housekeeping services, or
    • full-time nursing care.

    If you require durable medical equipment, such as a special bed or wheelchair, as part of your home care, Medicare will pay only 80% of the costs.

    For more information on Medicare coverage of home health care, read Medicare’s online publication Medicare and Home Health Care at http://www.medicare.gov/Pubs/pdf/10969.pdf.

    Pros and Cons of Home Health Care

    The benefits of properly administered home health care can be enormous. The fact that Medicare will pay for an unlimited number of home health care visits — with no copayments — makes home care a very good financial value compared to recovery in a hospital or nursing facility—in addition to the recuperative benefits of being at home.

    Being in your own home or even that of a friend or relative is often more conducive to a speedy recovery than the impersonal and sometimes frightening environment of a hospital. You have familiar things around you, your friends and family can come and go without worrying about “visiting hours,” and they can lend a hand with your care. You have greater privacy and are free from dreadful hospital routines and late-night noise and lights.

    On the other hand, home health care is not always the best solution. Hospitals sometimes push people out the door before they are well or strong enough, and as a result the people may take longer to recover at home, or suffer more pain and discomfort at home, than they would have if they had remained in the hospital just a few days more. This is particularly true when a patient does not have family or friends available to supplement the care provided by a home care agency.

    Finding a Home Health Care Agency

    If you are interested in home health care after a stay in the hospital, or as an alternative to a stay in a hospital or nursing facility, contact a home health care agency recommended by your doctor or the hospital discharge planner. The discharge planner can even contact an agency for you. You may also get help in locating home health care agencies from a community health organization, visiting nurses association, United Way, Red Cross, or neighborhood senior center. Medicare.gov lists home health care agencies in your area and allows you to compare the quality of their service depending on past performance.

    How to Start Home Health Care

    If your doctor has not mentioned home care to you but you feel it would be a good idea, make your wishes known. If you are looking at a long period of convalescence, home health care can be a better alternative to a long siege in the hospital or nursing facility. Most doctors will prescribe home care, can give you a referral to a Medicare-approved agency, and will cooperate with the home health care agency.

    What is Private Duty Home Care?

    Published: Feb 25, 2014

    What is Private Duty Home Care?

    In-home care is one of the greatest long-term needs for seniors with chronic illness or for those who are unable to attend to themselves. Private duty home care is one option that may fit your loved one’s needs. This type of home care can come from an agency or you may hire a private caregiver. The question is: What is private duty home care?

    Private duty home care is just a sub-set of general home care. Caregivers can provide a broad range of services. from medical and nursing care to bill paying and transportation services. Their goal is to provide whatever the senior and their family needs in order for them to remain independent in their own homes. Some services provided by private duty home caregivers are:

    • Personal care – bathing / dressing, hygiene, transfers, and ambulation
    • Homemakers / companions
    • Meal preparation
    • Medication reminders
    • Caregivers trained for clients with specialized conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease, hospice, end of life or other needs
    • Transportation for shopping, doctor’s visits or other needs

    Private duty home care may differ from traditional home care because of the payment method. Also known as insurance-paid in-home services, there are usually two types of approaches for payment:

    1. Full coverage medical insurance where the insurance company pays the claims for their customers
    2. Medicare supplemental insurance where a medical insurance policy either supplements the customer’s Medicare insurance or takes the place of Medicare insurance

    With private duty paid in-home services, some patients pay for in-home services out of their own pocket, or from a long term care insurance policy. Additionally, there are a number of hybrid forms of payment methods including various combinations of the commonly used insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and private duty. Private duty home care is a great way for your loved one to stay independent and receive professional care. Being looked after by a professional also inserts a new companion in your loved one’s life.

    So now when someone asks, “What is private duty home care?” you can confidently provide an answer. For more information on what private duty home care includes, visit the Private Duty Home Care Association website, or contact a Comfort Keepers representative to help you find a location offering these services near you.

    Methanol & Other Impurities

    Methanol is formed when fermenting beverages high in pectins – eg grapes and berries. Starting with a grain or sugar based wort, in a clean fermentor with a yeast culture from a well aereated source will result in small/none formed.
    Carl from Hambletonbard (makers of Alcotec yeasts) details.

      Methanol, you will typically get around 2 or 3 parts per million (or milligrams per litre if you prefer) of methanol produced during fermentation of a standard 6kg type Alcotec – this is extremely low even compared to commercial products. We don’t have a great deal of data on methanol because whenever we have tested for it we have got extremely low results.

    Mike explains about the pectin.

      The methanol comes from the pectin, which mainly composed of methyl esters of galactose. When pectin breaks down, by enzymes introduced by microorganisms, or deliberately introduced, the methyl esters combine with water to produce methanol, so the aim should be to leave the pectin well alone if you can.

      I think Jack would agree that what he means is that fermenting at a high temperature, or adding pectin enzyme, or trying for an abv higher than 12% all increase the risk of methanol being produced, so his advice about low temperature fermentation, adding no exra enzymes, and a target lower than 12%abv is all good stuff.


    You are already being exposed to methanol from other sources. Some fruit juices are naturally high in methanol – for example apple juice can have 0.2-0.3% methanol, or if derived from pulp by enzymatic degradation, the levels can be 2 to 3 times higher.

    The lethal dose of methanol is at least 100 ml that is equal to about 80000 mg or you need 27000 liters of mash at least to get that amount.

    also from the webpage: “Dietary surveys have shown that an extreme consumer of orange juice drinks slightly over 2 litres/day. The estimated maximum intake of methanol based on this consumption would be 455 mg for a 60 kg adult which is below the maximum advisory intake of 600 mg per day for a 60 kg adult, recommended by the Department of Health.”

    So if we stay under 600 mg per day we are safe, that’s the same as 200 liters of mash per day or about 70 liters of 40% alcohol per day if you weight is 60 kg.

    total amount of methanol in mash expressed in ml is about 0.1 ml = nothing.


    Jack comments.

      The Long Ashton Research Station did some studies that showed that ciders and apple juices clarified with pectic enzymes are higher in methanol due to the demethylation of juice pectins. The methanol content varied from 10 to 400 ppm in the test samples. I don’t know which fruits are highest/lowest in pectin content, but apples are commonly considered the highest.

      This is why all the old books on cider making refer to a condition called “apple palsey” – it’s the massively painfull hangover from the high methanol content. In order to prevent this (I’m sure distilling the pectin turns it into methanol) distillers must fully clarify any fruit wine before cooking it. Rather than use clarifiers, put the wine into 2 or 4 liter plastic jugs (only filled half full) and freeze them solid, then thaw them out, this will result in perfectly clear (and chill- stabilized) wine ready for distilling. After the thawing is complete or maybe as much as a week after, the wine will be crystal clear.

    Stephen Alexander reports that commercial spirits contain small levels of methanol. ‘Food Chemistry’ by Belitz more methanol is produced in fruit fermentation than in grains. Brewers do not remove the methanol in beer and wine because methanol is not especially toxic at low concentrations. You are looking at between 0.4%-1% methanol in wines and brandies and smaller amounts in beers. Distillers remove almost all the methanol in most cases. Ever notice how vodka produces clean hangovers and wines (particularly reds) give you very nasty hangovers? Methanol. That, and dehydration!

    Methanol is an especially nasty type of alcohol because the body tries to break it down the same way it metabolizes, or breaks down, ethanol, the type of alcohol in beer, wine and other drinks. Metabolizing ethanol produces chemicals less toxic to the body than alcohol. Unfortunately, if the same chemical action is performed on methanol the result is formic acid, lactic acid and formaldehyde.

    Formaldehyde attacks nerve cells, especially the optic nerve and can damage the liver and kidneys. Formic acid and lactic acid also attack the kidneys and liver. Most people who have drunk methanol die of severe and sudden kidney and liver failure.

    Chronic methanol drinking will cause optical damage. The stories of moonshine causing blindness comes from U.S. prohibition times where some bootleggers used to cut moonshine with methylated spirits to increase profit.

    Gregory writes:

      It isn’t the yeast that controls methanol, it’s what you’re fermenting. I believe yeast has very limited metabolic pathways around methanol. Quoting from http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/jul2000/965090996.Bc.r.html –

      “Basically it can be produced biologically in 2 ways; through the oxidation of methane by methane monooxygenase, or by the reduction of formaldehyde, by methanol dehydrogenase (and this reaction normally works in the reverse direction).

      It’s true that some methanol can be produced during fermentation, but this is not derived from the ethanol or by carbohydrate oxidation. It is produced in small amounts, either by non-enzymatic reactions or through the reduction of formaldehyde.”

      Methane isn’t present in our washes, so the culprit is formaldehyde. I believe the pectins in fruit are methylated and can break down in the wash into formaldehyde. But so long as your wash has only pure fermentable carbohydrates, you can expect essentially zero methanol. There’s a bit more in this discussion of methanol here: http://yarchive.net/med/methanol_poisoning.html

      Ethyl acetate, OTOH, is produced spontaneously whenever acetate is present with ethanol. There are several possible sources of acetate during fermentation. In general, acetate is formed by oxidation of ethanol. (In fact, acetate is the ‘end-product’ of our own metabolism of ethanol). In fermentation, oxidation of ethanol into acetate can happen as a result of desperate yeast metabolizing its own ethanol, or by contamination with other yeasts or bacteria.

    Information on Brinks Home Security Systems

    Brinks home security systems were bought by ADT Security Services in 2010.

    Details of the Merger

    Brinks Home security spun off into a separate entity from Brink’s company in 2008. The Brink’s Company had the residential and commercial security installation business which was Brinks Home Security/Broadview security. The other aspect of the Brink’s Company is the well known cash transport business. Brinks Home Security was rebranded as Broadview Security in June 2009.

    Brinks home security monitoring

    Brinks/Broadview was bought by ADT in 2010 for $2 billion. Broadview security has been rebranded as ADT. The merger brings together about 6 million accounts, with about 1.3 million accounts, coming from Broadview/Brinks.

    The Brinks/Broadview accounts have been known for low attrition rates. Their customers were less likely to switch or stop their security services.

    To make the consolidation work, ADT will most likely consolidate monitoring operations and make cuts in administrative back-end positions.

    About ADT

    With the merger, ADT now has about 40-50% of the residential security services market. They are the main player within the industry. ADT already has a strong presence within the commercial security market.

    ADT is owned by Tyco International Ltd. Tyco is a diversified and global company. Tyco is a leading provider of security products and services, fire protection, valves and controls, and other industrial products. Tyco has about $187 billion in sales.

    What does the merger mean for new and existing Brinks customers?

    Brinks home security systems had the highest ratings regarding customer attrition in the industry. Their customers were satisfied with the services of the company. Brinks had a low percentage of customers who switched to another security company.

    There is a possibility that past Brinks customers will not get the same level of service as before. Even if ADT is committed to taking care of their customers, Brinks had different strategies and tactics in working with their customers that were successful. ADT will most likely continue to operate based on the same customer principles as before.

    Concerns of Merger

    There are also concerns regarding the potential outcomes of the merger and the possibility of disrupting operations and customer service.

    First, ADT will most likely be consolidating alarm monitoring operations. Brinks had two centers within the US and the previous ADT had five.

    If ADT has the right systems in place, consolidating operations should not be a problem. They need to ensure that their computer systems are well integrated. They also need to make sure that they have enough personnel to handle the monitoring.

    Second, ADT will be cutting administrative personnel to ensure that they get a return on their investment. Most of the cuts will be in positions where customers will not be affected. Hopefully, there will not be any cuts in customer service personnel.

    Increased Competition?

    Brinks home security monitoring

    There has been major consolidation at the top of the home security market. ADT is the ‘top dog’ within the market.

    But this can also be a boon to both consumer and smaller security companies. There will be consumers who do not want to use ADT’s services and they will be looking for other companies to use.

    There is also an opportunity for smaller companies to provide innovative security services. They are nimble and agile enough to provide these types of services more quickly than a huge company like ADT can.

    Why You Should Avoid Home Warranty Choices – Consumer Reports #home #warranties,

    Please Refresh Your Browser Window

    Why you should avoid home warranty choices

    It’s possible that you’ve bought your share of home warranties—service contracts that promise to cover appliances and other items that break down in your home. You probably should not have. A recent complaint consumer officials in New Jersery filed against Choice Home Warranty in Edison, N.J. illustrates why.

    The state’s complaint says that far too often, warranty claims are denied because the company says the problem was pre-existing. Or, the claim is denied because the consumer can’t prove that a broken item was properly maintained. We’ve seen consumers raise these issues in the past in connection with home warranties and other types of service contracts.

    In this particular case, New Jersey officials say that Choice Home Warranty repeatedly made it difficult if not impossible for consumers to realize the benefits of their so-called warranties, the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs said in a statement announcing the complaint. which was filed in state superior court in Middlesex County.

    The state said the company, which sold coverage in at least 25 states, denied claims even when technicians said covered products had been property maintained or that a problem wasn’t pre-existing or caused by a lack of maintenance. For some claims, the state said, the company demanded that customers provide years of maintenance records.

    While the coverage required the company to replace products that couldn’t be repaired, the state said the company offered consumers cash buyouts for hundreds of dollars less than it would cost to replace the item. And in some cases, local technicians dispatched to handle claims refused to respond, saying the company failed to pay them for their previous service.

    In a statement, Choice Home Warranty said that it denies the allegations and will vigorously defend itself against them. The company also said it has paid tens of millions of dollars in claims for repairs and replacements and that the consumers who complained represent are small fraction of its customers.

    Choice Home Warranty has an F rating from the Better Business Bureau because of 957 complaints, the time it took the company to resolve the issues, and the New Jersey complaint.

    What to do

    We recommend avoiding service contracts, even those provided by companies that have no record of engaging in such shenanigans. The reason is that coverage for contracts that cover homes and cars, for example, can cost hundreds of dollars.

    We also believe that it makes much more sense to buy reliable products and maintain them as the manufacturer recommends. Do that, and there’s a good chance you won’t need to make any significant repairs before the product becomes obsolete. Put the money you otherwise would use to buy a service contract into a savings account or product repair-and-replacement fund.

    If a product breaks after the express warranty expires, there are many other ways you may be able to obtain a free or low-cost repair. Many credit card issuers automatically extend the manufacturer’s warranty for an extra year or so for most products you buy using their card. Many companies also have goodwill programs and service campaigns that provide free or low-cost repairs or product replacement for items that fail in an unreasonably short time.

    And under the so-called implied warranty of merchantability. which automatically accompanies many purchases under state laws, retailers and/or manufacturers may be legally required to address a product defect even if the express warranty has expired. Finally, manufacturers generally must initiate recalls and provide free repairs for safety-related defects.

    What does it take to sell your own home?

    Selling your own home

    If you want to sell your own home without parting with thousands of dollars in commissions to real estate agents, consider the for-sale-by-owner, or FSBO, process as a way to save money.

    Doug Perlson, founder of RealDirect, a New York City company that helps FSBO sellers market their homes, says many owners who paid top dollar for their properties a few years ago are finding that the drop in real estate prices in the wake of the housing bubble makes it harder for them to come up with the funds for closing.

    A for-sale-by-owner approach is appealing because every dollar saved is that much more important when you re selling for less than you ultimately paid, he says.

    In 2011, 10 percent of home sales were FSBO sales, according to the National Association of Realtors. Selling your own home requires more time and effort than working with a traditional agent, says Perlson. But it s worth researching the pros and cons if you seriously want to sell your own home.

    Here s a look at factors to consider if you re thinking about selling your own home FSBO.

    Money-saving potential

    The biggest reason people sell FSBO is the potential to save money, Perlson says. Sales commission paid to a real estate agent is often as high as 6 percent. Avoiding this fee is the only way many owners can afford to sell, he adds.

    Saving money is a huge plus, but there are also some drawbacks to FSBO home sales, says Katie Wethman, a real estate agent in McLean, Va. Owners still have to spend some money upfront, and they also have to spend time and effort marketing their property without a guarantee they will find a qualified buyer.

    It s a given that sellers will have to design and print fliers, yard signs and other marketing material on their own. But according to Perlson, it can also cost sellers up to $400 a month to get their home listed in various Internet home sales sites and a local multiple listing service, or MLS.

    A commitment of time

    Homeowners also have to take time to stage their property, take photos and write descriptions for their listing, Perlson says. Instead of handing the keys to a real estate agent to handle showings and open houses, FSBO sellers are responsible for being available to potential buyers. This can mean staying home on nights and weekends so potential buyers can visit.

    The work and time commitment really comes around showings, Perlson says. Sellers can set their own schedules, so they don t necessarily have to be available every evening. But it is important to be as accommodating to potential buyers as possible, he adds.

    Dealing with low offers

    The seller hopes to save money, but if a buyer makes an offer on an FSBO, it could be lower than what the owner hopes for. The buyer may want to participate in the savings, Wethman says.

    If a potential buyer has his own agent, he may not even consider an FSBO home unless the owner is willing to pay the agent s commission, according to Perlson. That s because the seller s agent would normally split his fee with the buyer s agent, so with a FSBO, the owner takes the place of the seller s agent, he explains. If you agree to the sale, expect to pay around 3 percent of the purchase price to the buyer s agent.

    Your net proceeds would lower, but there is a benefit of working with buyers agents because it can expand your pool of prospects, Perlson says. If you re going to get the highest possible price, you need to have the most potential buyers.

    Legal disclosures

    Even after you agree on a price, you still need to prepare the sales contract, says Shawn Christopher, a real estate attorney in Henderson, Nev. The contract should list the responsibilities of both the buyer and seller, terms of the sale, and how the transfer will take place.

    He adds that if you don t disclose problems before the sale, such as a foundation crack, roof leaks or mold, the buyer may try to seek legal action later when they find out about the problem.

    This may be avoided if the seller hires an attorney to review their contract and even conduct the closing, he says. Some states require the use of an attorney for the sale. Typically, lawyers charge $300 an hour or more for their services, Christopher says, but the cost of good legal help is worth it.

    Potential FSBO home sellers should make sure they research their market and assemble a skilled team to help, Wethman says. No one thinks they need a professional until something goes wrong.

    Real Estate Personal Finance: How to Get a Mortgage on a Low Income

    Real Estate Personal Finance: How to Get a Mortgage on a Low Income

    A low income doesn’t prevent you from getting a mortgage. Ultimately, your income determines how much you can borrow instead of whether or not you can borrow. While the more you make the more you can borrow, if your other debts are manageable, you won’t need a very high income to buy a comfortable home.

    “Lenders look at two numbers to determine your ability to buy a home — your credit score and your debt-to-income ratio,” explains mortgage broker Jonathan Mosca. “To calculate your DTI, they divide all of your debt payments into your monthly income.” In other words, the debt-to-income ratio looks at how much of your money is being used to pay debt that you already have. The loan-to-income ratio is similar to the debt-to-income ratio but looks only at how much of your monthly income will go to make the payments on the loan that you’re trying to get.

    While DTI standards vary among lenders, the Federal Housing Administration, or FHA, has a low-down payment mortgage program with a maximum DTI ratio of 43 percent, with some wiggle room. At the same time, the agency also has a loan-to-income ratio of around 29 percent. What this means is that if you make $40,000 per year, which is roughly 80 percent of the U.S. median household income as of February 2013, the FHA will lend to you up to a total monthly debt load of $1,433 with a monthly mortgage payment of up to $967 per month.

    One Secret: Owe Less

    “The secret to getting a mortgage is to cap your monthly debt payments at the difference between your DTI and LTI ratio,” Mosca explains. For example, if you have the aforementioned $40,000 of income, your DTI supports $1,433 of debt, and your maximum loan payment is $967. If you have more than $466 in payments on credit cards, personal loans, vehicle loans and car debt, it’ll cut into your maximum loan amount. For instance, if you have $600 in monthly payments, your mortgage payment will be capped at $833. For comparison, the monthly payment on a $100,000 30-year mortgage at 4.5 percent with $1,400 in taxes and $2,300 in mortgage and property insurance is $831.68.

    Another Secret: Make More

    While it’s not always possible to make more money out of the blue, you can increase your income by buying a home with another borrower. “Adding a qualified co-borrower gives you more income to help you qualify, but make sure that they don’t come with their own debts or credit issues,” warns Mosca. Whether you have a family member, a spouse or a significant other cosign, his income gets added to yours when the lender calculates how much loan you can afford. “Remember that they’ll be responsible for the loan, too,” cautions Mosca.

    If you’re starting out in home ownership with a relatively low income, you might not be able to buy as much house as you will when your income grows or when you have equity to use as a down payment. Instead of buying a brand new home, consider a less expensive used home. If you can find one that is in good shape but is a bit outdated, you’ll save some money. You will also be buying the opportunity to increase the value of your home by updating it as you live in it. Mosca points out, “This doesn’t just help you qualify for a mortgage now — it also helps you qualify for a bigger home the next time around.” If you’re not an experienced home buyer, consider skipping homes that need major rehab and focus only on homes with cosmetic problems.
