DISH Promotions Scholarship Opportunity

DISH Promotions, a leading online Satellite TV and Internet retailer, is excited to announce the $1000 DISHPromotions.com Scholarship. Both current students and incoming freshmen are eligible. Applicants must complete a 1000-word essay which encourages critical thinking. It s important to note that this is a semi-annual scholarship that renews each year. So twice a year you will have the chance to earn $1000 toward your education.

Earn a $1,000 Scholarship From DISHPromotions.com!

Watching live sporting events has been the most popular reason for watching TV for decades.

With the advent of easy-to-use DVR technology in the 1990 s, and then it’s wide-spread adoption over the last fifteen years, sports remain one of the few types of programming that are consistently watched live versus recorded.

Using psychological and sociological principles, attempt to understand and explain this issue: What makes watching a sporting event live more valuable than watching it pre-recorded, and why is this different from most other programming?

  • Your essay should be between 600 and 1000 words
  • Two professional sources required (not Wikipedia)
  • Please use perma.cc if you choose to use online sources and use MLA citation style for your work. Citations are not included in the word count limit.

Open Date: January 1, 2017
Deadline: May 31, 2017 Rules and Regulations

Congratulations to Nathan Doran. He won the essay contest which ended on May 31, 2016, and was awarded the $1,000 DISH Promotions Scholarship.

If you have any difficulties submitting your essay or need additional assistance, please use this form .

Tips for successful writing:

  • First build an outline for your comparison. List three to five media and the distinguishing features for each. Then compare those features in your notes and settle on your final three for your essay.
  • Think about your personal experience AND the experiences of others. Ask questions of people from multiple generations to understand their perspective on the differences. Be careful to avoid taking for granted that your experience is the same as everyone else’s.
  • Be creative, yet practical. What changes in a person if they change where or how they get most of their information? Why does it matter?
  • We all make mistakes. To give yourself the best chance at the scholarship, take the time to clean up your mistakes before submitting your entry. We had to proof-read this page and make corrections, as well.
  • Cite your references. Please use perma.cc for online citations (this will be a good habit for you to use throughout college). Reference citations will not count against your limited word count.

We re excited to have the opportunity to help invest in further education by offering this $1000 scholarship.

This DISH vs DIRECTV comparison page might be of some help to you. You can get Dish Network by ordering online or by phone.

Chaplain Services

Our staff chaplain offers spiritual support for the patient and their loved ones as requested, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy specializes in the needs of the seriously ill by offering massage services to hospice patients at the Seasons Hospice House. Massage may be helpful in aiding relaxation, reducing pain, anxiety and other physical and emotional symptoms. It can create an overall feeling of well-being.

Music Therapy

Music therapy is the use of music within a therapeutic relationship to address a patient’s physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs. It is highly personalized and the focus may be on the patient’s physical state, their emotional or spiritual concerns, or on supporting family or social gatherings.

Pet Therapy

Seasons Hospice’s therapy dog program serves to provide comfort, support, love, and animal companionship to patients, their families, and staff through the use of highly trained therapy dog teams acting in a volunteer capacity.

Registered therapy dog teams comprised of a trained therapy dog and trained volunteer handler, will visit hospice patients at the Seasons Hospice House upon a referral/recommendation from Seasons Hospice staff and permission from patient and/or family.

Bereavement Support

Bereavement support is available at the Hospice House to help patients and families understand and manage their experiences of loss, change, grief, and mourning while providing support and hope.

“My family has commented often on the beautiful Seasons facility that supported us during Mom’s two week stay. The love and gentle caring she received and the wonderful support we received then and during the following year has brought us great peace of mind and comfort. Bless you all for your work. You are Angels!”

“I can’t tell you how grateful I am that my mom was able to spend her last months at Seasons… She was really in her element and blossomed in a very real way through the delicate balance of care and independence that hospice provides….”

“How can I thank you all for the wonderful, caring care you gave my sister while she was with you. In all my years of nursing, I have seldom seen such caring attitudes in all the staff.”

“The services you provided were immeasurable. Not having lost anyone before, it was also unexpected. I got through the experience because I had the support of Seasons Hospice. Thank you!”

“I just am so amazed at how professional and friendly and helpful they are. Iʼve just been so pleased with their professional approach. I canʼt imagine a better setting than where I am now.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is home healthcare?

Home healthcare can help you live independently in your home. We can assist with and provide
comprehensive care for you, all delivered in your home environment under the direction of your personal
physician. Services and programs are provided if you have a medical condition that can be:

  • Helped by the skill of a nurse, including: recovery from an illness, accident or surgery, wound care, help with medications and/or injections, physical, occupational and speech-language rehabilitation, therapy services, clinical management of a chronic disease and/or monitoring a serious illness
  • Patient and caregiver education

Home healthcare requires a skilled need that a nurse or physical therapist can provide. Nursing care by VNS is provided with a teamwork approach involving the patient first, physician, family, caregivers, and members of the healthcare team.

Personal care (or private duty care) is usually provided by a home health aide and does not require a nurse, but is necessary when you need help at home with bathing, dressing, moving around or meal preparation.

Who pays for home healthcare?

  • Home healthcare can be covered through a variety of sources if your care is medically necessary and you meet certain coverage requirements: Medicare – traditional Medicare pays 100% of the cost for home healthcare if you are 65 years of age or over or permanently disabled
  • Medicaid – Medicaid health insurance helps those with limited income who can’t afford medical care, and will pay for some or all of their medical bills
  • HMO’s (Health Maintenance Organizations) – companies have contracts with doctors and other healthcare providers and are directly involved in your medical treatment. HMO health insurance plans are generally the cheapest kind of coverage available, but also the most restrictive. Benefits vary per policy and verification of benefits is required
  • Workers Compensation Insurance – “Workers comp” covers you if you are injured on the job, whether hurt on the workplace or elsewhere, in an auto accident while on business, and covers work-related illnesses/medical and rehabilitation services
  • Private Pay – an option for services not covered as outlined above; you may choose to pay out of pocket
    for services

When insurance does not cover a needed service, fees are adjusted based on your ability to pay. Our Patient Account Representatives can help you find out what your insurance will cover. Call 585.787.2233 for more information.

Why do I need home healthcare?

  • Illness, surgical procedure, injury, or any number of life events may require you to have in-home healthcare as you recover
  • As hospital stays decrease, you may need highly skilled services when you return home
  • If you need continued care that can’t easily or effectively be provided by family members
  • Services are available with 24 hour on call nurses to assist seven days a week

What are the requirements for home health care?

  • You must be considered homebound
  • You are under the care of a physician who manages and authorizes the need for services

    Speech Therapist

What is the definition of homebound?

In general, you are homebound if:

  • You have an illness or injury that restricts your ability to leave home unless you have help, or if it takes a considerable and taxing effort to leave home (if you need a wheelchair, special transportation, or other assistance)
  • Absences from the home must be infrequent or for a short period of time, as in only leaving your home for medical care
  • Trips out cannot last longer than one to two hours or occur more often than one to two times per week for activities like grocery shopping, attending a worship service or going to a hair appointment

You are not considered homebound if:

  • You are able to drive
  • You leave your home for reasons other than receiving medical treatment
  • The absences are long and frequent, such as frequent shopping trips or visits to friends

How often are visits made?

A home health nurse comes as often as needed. Everyone’s needs are different and visits are coordinated and scheduled according to your specific needs.

What about home medical equipment and supplies?

We can coordinate and arrange delivery for all your home medical equipment, including:

  • Wheelchairs, walkers, bedside commodes, bathroom safety equipment
  • Oxygen, nebulizers, respiratory supplies
