Helpful Websites For Professionals, Patients and Families

It is very important to consider the source when reading a website. Think about using more than one website to get your information and make sure the federal government sponsors one of the websites you use.

Many websites offer chat rooms or buddy programs. It is important to consider that when you participate in a program such as this, you must protect your private information and realize that the person offering you information is a layperson. Realizing these limitations, many patients and families find great comfort in speaking to others in their situation.

New lottery in support of hospice (From Salisbury Journal) #motel #reservations

New lottery in support of hospice

A NEW lottery has been launched in aid of Salisbury Hospice.

The Your Hospice Lottery will offer people the chance to take part in a weekly draw with a top prize of £1,000 to raise money for the work done by the charity.

It is hoped the lottery will raise in excess of £500,000 for Salisbury Hospice Charity over the next five years, and there will also be a £100 prize, four £25 prizes and 80 prizes of £10 to win as well as the chance of a weekly rollover prize of £250, which could go up to a maximum of £10,000.

John Munro, fundraising manager with Salisbury Hospice Charity, said: “We rely on the generosity of local people to help us raise the £1.5m needed each year for us to continue to help families in our community who are living with life-limiting illnesses.

“A home visit from a community nurse costs £100, while one bereavement support session to help loved ones through a difficult time costs £20. By playing the weekly lottery, supporters will be providing a valuable and regular income for Salisbury Hospice Charity which will help to run services and to plan patient care.”

Your Hospice Lottery also supports the work of St Helena Hospice, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, and The J’s Hospice – but members specify which hospice they are playing in support of. By Salisbury Hospice Charity working in collaboration with the other hospices, overheads and costs are kept to a minimum so more funds can be used to support patients and their families.

It costs £1 per week per number to become a member of Your Hospice Lottery. People can pay by direct debit securely online via the Your Hospice Lottery website at yourhospicelottery.org.uk or by cheque, debit card or credit card by calling 0800 285 1390. Players must be 16 or over.

Supply Chain Management – Free Management Training Business Course Online #business #course,


#

In the example given, materials flow downstream through a manufacturing level (tier) transforming the raw materials, which are the components or parts. These are assembled on the next level to form products. The products are shipped to distribution centers, and from there on to retailers and customers.

Logistics Management is the part of SCM that efficiently plans, implements, and controls the delivery and storage of goods and services.

Supply chain management flows can be divided into three main flows:

  1. Product flow – which is the movement of goods from a supplier to a customer, as well as any customer returns or service needs.
  2. Information flow – which involves transmitting orders and updating the status of delivery.
  3. Finances flow – which consists of credit terms, payment schedules, and consignment and title ownership arrangements.

There are three levels of decisions associated with SCM:

  1. Strategic – Long-term decisions related to location, production, inventory, and transportation.
  2. Tactical – Medium-term decisions such as weekly demand forecasts, distribution and transportation planning, production planning, and materials requirement planning.
  3. Operational – Day-to-Day decisions as part of normal managerial duties.

The following five steps are typical purchase procedures:

  1. Specify the amount needed.
  1. Determine the supplier based on pricing comparisons.
  1. Negotiate the price as well as payment terms, warranty, and timed cost reductions. Dealing with supplies or commodities depends on their availability, price and quality.
  1. Delivery and inspection of the supplies.

Focusing on certain areas within the supply chain can reduce costs. There might be times when buying in bulk is cost effective. JIT, FIFO and LIFO will be discussed in the following Inventory Management section of this lesson.

Manufacturing Resource Planning (MRP) as part of SCM can help plan and determine the supply needs and timelines for new manufacturing processes in order to predict product delivery schedules, and respond to changes in the market or product. It is a software based production planning and inventory control system used to manage manufacturing processes. The three major objectives of MRP are:

  1. Ensure materials and products are available for production and delivery to customers.
  2. Maintain the lowest possible level of inventory.
  3. Plan manufacturing activities, delivery schedules, and purchasing activities.

Sophisticated software systems with Web interfaces are competing with Web-based Application Service Providers (ASP) who provide SCM service for companies who rent their service. A number of major Web sites offer e-procurement marketplaces, which is the business-to-business purchase and sale of supplies and services over the Internet. Manufacturers can trade and even make auction bids with suppliers.

The five basic Supply Chain Management steps are:

  1. Plan Strategic planning by developing a set of metrics to monitor the supply chain so that it is efficient, costs less, and delivers high quality and value to customers.
  1. Source Choose the suppliers that will deliver the goods and services you need to create your product including pricing, delivery and payment. Also managing the inventory of goods and services you receive from suppliers, including receiving shipments, verifying them, transferring them to your manufacturing facilities, and authorizing supplier payments. This is all done while at the same time continuously monitoring the metrics for possible improvement.
  1. Make Manufacture your product. Schedule the activities necessary for production, testing, packaging and preparation for delivery. Always measure quality levels, production output, and worker productivity.
  1. Deliver Also known as logistics. Coordinate the receipt of orders from customers, develop a network of warehouses, pick carriers to get products to customers, and set up an invoicing system to receive payments. Shipping options can include:

FOB (Free On Board) Factory Pricing where the buyer bears the shipping cost.

Freight Absorption Pricing in which paying some of the transportation costs are in line with competitors.

Uniformed Delivery Pricing in which a standard price is set no matter the location.

Zone Pricing in which you charge different prices for different geographical locations.

  1. Return Also known as RMA or Return Merchandise Authorization. A system for receiving defective and excess products back from customers, and supporting customers who have problems with delivered products.

Cases for Support Hospice of the Comforter | Florida Hospital Connected Care

We are celebrating the past, humble beginnings and a vibrant future as Hospice of the Comforter – Florida Hospital Connected Care has become part of the Florida Hospital Foundation family.

Since 1990, Hospice of the Comforter has provided compassionate care and support to over 28,000 patients in Orange, Seminole and Osceola counties. During this time, we’ve earned the trust and respect of the communities we serve.

Hospice of the Comforter enables patients to live their lives to the fullest, surrounded by family, friends and a Hospice Care Team, so that they might meet death with a sense of comfort and dignity—and so those left living may find peace and solace. The most common comment we hear from patients and families is, “I wish I had started hospice sooner.” The reason we hear this is because many patients and families are not aware of how soon they can begin benefiting from the full range of hospice services.

Because of our expert symptom management and emotional support, many of our patients and families experience less stress, less pain and more quality time spent with their loved ones. Patients are evaluated on an ongoing basis to ensure they meet the criteria to continue receiving hospice care.

Built on the foundation of the biblical values of compassion, service, charity, faith, honesty, dignity, and mercy, our Hospice patients receive the highest level of care from a team of professionals trained in end-of-life care, pain management, and symptom management. Our goal is to keep patients where they are most comfortable, at home, in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, hospitals, or in-patient facilities including our Hospice House (short-term) and Robison Residence (long-term).

The changing environment in health care is driven by rapidly rising costs. Hospice organizations are experiencing new regulation including the fact that Medicare will continue to reduce payments and more scrutiny is being placed on providers. This new environment creates the need for more focused philanthropic endeavors to ensure if programs and quality initiatives not covered under reimbursements are able to continue to grow and thrive.

Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap

(Updated May 14, 2015)

Oracle provides this updated roadmap for Javac SE and Oracle Java SE products (Oracle Java SE Support. Oracle Java SE Advanced, Oracle Java SE Advanced Desktop and Oracle Java SE Suite ) to help customers better understand the maintenance and support options available. Java SE major releases are publicly maintained for a minimum of 3 years from general availability date (GA date), or later, as described in the next section. Java SE releases are updated for the public with bug fixes, security fixes, and minor updates for a period of at least 3 years before the release reaches end-of-public-updates (EoPU). Oracle Java SE product releases – starting with Java SE 7 – are supported for no less than eleven (11) years from initial release date, enabling IT managers and ISVs to plan their upgrades according to their individual business practices. The following provides a more detailed review of the Java SE products support roadmap, along with examples specific to available major releases. All customers should refer to their specific service contract to determine their support entitlement. See the Oracle Lifetime Support Policies for complete details.

Auto-update Notice and End of Public Updates for Oracle JDK 7

As outlined in the Oracle JDK Support Roadmap. after April 2015, Oracle will not post further updates of Java SE 7 to its public download sites. Customers who need continued access to critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for Java SE 7 or older versions can get long term support through Oracle Java SE Support. The process of migrating users from Java 7 to Java 8 through the auto update feature is expected to take place after the January 2015 CPU release .

Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE) Major Releases

Major releases of the Java Platform, Standard Edition (Java SE), are identified as 5.0, 6, 7 and 8. As of the publishing of this article, the Java technology end of public updates policy has been clarified to confirm public availability of Java SE major releases for at least:

  • Three years after the general availability date (GA) of a major release
  • One year after the GA of a subsequent major release
  • Six months after a subsequent major release has been established as the default Java Runtime Environment (JRE) for end-user desktops on java.com

Consistent with previous policies and documentation, Oracle will post an end of public updates notice for each major release well in advance, indicating that the release has entered its transition period. Once the release has completed its transition period, no new downloads of that release will be made publicly available on the public Oracle web sites, and will only be available through the My Oracle Support web site. Previously available older releases will continue to be available for support and debugging through the Java Archive but are not recommended for production use.

Java SE 7 End of Public Updates Notice

After April 2015, Oracle will no longer post updates of Java SE 7 to its public download sites. Existing Java SE 7 downloads already posted as of April 2015 will remain accessible in the Java Archive on Oracle Technology Network. Developers and end-users are encouraged to update to more recent Java SE versions that remain available for public download.

Long Term Support

Customers who need continued access to critical bug fixes and security fixes as well as general maintenance for Java SE 7 or older versions can get long term support through Oracle Java SE Support .

* or later, depending on factors described above.

Java SE Minor Release Lines

Java SE minor release lines represent a cumulative set of implementation enhancements to a major release, such as the Java SE 1.4.1, and 1.4.2 minor release lines to the Java SE 1.4 major release. Java SE minor releases do not have separate EOL periods from their corresponding major release. Once a new Java SE minor release is made available, the previous Java SE minor release line for a release will be considered superseded. Download links for the previous minor release line will be moved to the Product Archive page for historical purposes and to allow developers to resolve issues with those products that have completed their EOL process. Please note that releases from this page may contain bugs and security problems that have been fixed in a later release and for that reason downloads of superseded versions is not recommended.

Oracle Java SE Product Releases

Customers seeking longer standard support and maintenance periods for each major release are encouraged to migrate to the Oracle Java SE product offerings (Oracle Java SE Support. Oracle Java SE Advanced, Oracle Java SE Advanced Desktop and Oracle Java SE Suite ). Oracle Java SE product releases will follow the Oracle standard EOL policy for licensable products. During a release s eight (8) year transition period, customers will be eligible to receive Oracle Premier Support for that entire period, in accordance with their support contract with Oracle. Past those 8 years, support customers will receive critical bug and security fixes as well as general maintenance releases as per the Oracle Extended Support terms. Oracle Java SE Support puts you in control of your upgrade strategy so you can enjoy continued peace of mind, knowing that no matter which product release you’re running, Oracle can support your business.

Examples of some key product dates for Oracle Java SE product offerings include:

Oracle Java SE Support Roadmap *

* Oracle Java SE product EOL dates are provided here as examples to illustrate the Oracle Java SE Support, Oracle Java SE Advanced, Oracle Java SE Advanced Desktop and Oracle Java SE Suite EOL Policy. Customers should refer to Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for the most up-to-date information.

** These support timelines apply to client and server deployments of Java, with the exception of the web deployment technology. See Support of Deployment Technology section below for details.

Support of Deployment Technology

The web deployment technology, consisting of the Java Plugin and Web Start technologies, has a shorter support lifecycle. For all major releases of Java SE starting with Java SE 7, Oracle provides five (5) years of Premier Support for these technologies. Extended Support is not available for the deployment stack. See the Oracle Lifetime Support Policy for details.

Deployment Technology for Java SE 6 will be available until Jun 2017.

Extended Support Life for Java SE 6

In April 2014 Oracle extended the support lifetime for Java SE 6. Before this extension the end of Premier Support was Dec 2013 and the end of Extended Support was scheduled for Jun 2017. The new support dates are: End of Premier Support on Dec 2015, and End of Extended Support on Dec 2018.

The extension of Support Life for Java SE 6 does not include the Java SE 6 Deployment Technology. Java SE 6 Deployment Technology will only be available until Jun 2017. Update releases of Java SE 6 released after Jun 2017 will not include deployment technology.


Update Releases Revisions

As a new implementation of an existing release, an update or revision itself does not have a separate EOL period. Once a new update or revision is posted, the previous, displaced download will be moved to the Java Product Archive page.

Cerberus Helpdesk or Cerb is a web-based commercial, platform-independent and open source email response system that is easy to integrate, customize and extend. It was created to decrease the need for time-consuming and redundant human interaction with customers.

Originally written as a trouble ticket system, Cerberus Helpdesk helps your sales, billing or support departments to be able to easily and quickly interact with inbound customer email inquiries. With more 12 years of continuous innovation, Cerb has been successfully deployed on over 18,000 organizations.

Features at a glance

Key features include email fetch and retrieve support, adaptive anti-spam engine, web-based support portal, service level agreements, due date management and schedules, email templates, as well as a comprehensive knowledge base.

When using Cerb, your employees will be able to work efficiently, capture feedback and collaborate with customers better, from anywhere in the world, automate workflow, flag opportunities, share expert knowledge, stay informed, build shared workspaces, manage tasks, reply to huge number of emails, as well as to remember anything about anyone.

Pricing and availability

While you will be able to download a free trial of Cerb, or grab the latest source code from GitHub and compile it yourself, pricing starts from 252 USD (202 EUR) per seat if you install the software on your hardware, as well as 25 USD (20 EUR) per month per seat if you host Cerberus Helpdesk in the cloud.

Supported operating systems and requirements

At the moment, Cerberus Helpdesk has been successfully tested with numerous GNU/Linux distributions, as well as with the BSD, Mac OS X and Microsoft Windows operating systems. It supports the Apache, Nginx or IIS web servers, the MySQL 5.0 or newer database server, and PHP 5.3 or newer, which should have the gd, mysql, mailparse, imap, dom, json, spl and mbstring extensions installed. The xcache and memcache PHP extensions are recommended.

New in Cerberus Helpdesk 7.0.4:

  • We design major functionality updates with backwards compatibility in mind — both technically and conceptually. This means that when you update between two versions in the same generation (e.g. 6.8 to 6.9), you can expect your environment to still meet the same system requirements, and your workers should still feel completely familiar with how the interface and common functionality works.
  • Every two years or so, we plan and release a generational update. Those are the milestone where we allow ourselves to break backwards compatibility. We remove features and concepts that have been deprecated by new improvements along the way, and we introduce new features and concepts based on thousands of ongoing discussions with the community and several more years of accumulated experience. Generational updates may be a bit more disruptive than typical updates, but they are where Cerb takes big leaps forward.
  • Each generation of Cerb has had a central theme:
  • In 4.x, the theme was a clean slate. We completely rewrote Cerb from scratch to use modern design principles, to be highly stable and secure, to enable a much faster pace of development, and to be extensible through plugins with our Devblocks framework.

DSL information #small #business #support


#

What is DSL?

Damn Small Linux is a very versatile 50MB mini desktop oriented Linux distribution.

Damn Small is small enough and smart enough to do the following things:

  • Boot from a business card CD as a live linux distribution (LiveCD)
  • Boot from a USB pen drive
  • Boot from within a host operating system (that’s right, it can run *inside* Windows)
  • Run very nicely from an IDE Compact Flash drive via a method we call “frugal install”
  • Transform into a Debian OS with a traditional hard drive install
  • Run light enough to power a 486DX with 16MB of Ram
  • Run fully in RAM with as little as 128MB (you will be amazed at how fast your computer can be!)
  • Modularly grow — DSL is highly extendable without the need to customize

DSL was originally developed as an experiment to see how many usable desktop applications can fit inside a 50MB live CD. It was at first just a personal tool/toy. But over time Damn Small Linux grew into a community project with thousands of development hours put into refinements including a fully automated remote and local application installation system and a very versatile backup and restore system which may be used with any writable media including a USB device, floppy disk, or a hard drive.

DSL has a nearly complete desktop, and a tiny core of command line tools. All applications have been chosen for the best balance of functionality, size and speed. Damn Small also has the ability to act as an SSH/FTP/HTTPD server right off of a live CD. In our quest to save space and have a fully functional desktop we’ve made many GUI administration tools which are fast yet still easy to use. What does DSL have?

XMMS (MP3, CD Music, and MPEG), FTP client, Dillo web browser, Netrik web browser, FireFox, spreadsheet, Sylpheed email, spellcheck (US English), a word-processor (Ted), three editors (Beaver, Vim, and Nano [Pico clone]), graphics editing and viewing (Xpaint, and xzgv), Xpdf (PDF Viewer), emelFM (file manager), Naim (AIM, ICQ, IRC), VNCviwer, Rdesktop, SSH/SCP server and client, DHCP client, PPP, PPPoE (ADSL), a web server, calculator, generic and GhostScript printer support, NFS, Fluxbox and JWM window managers, games, system monitoring apps, a host of command line tools, USB support, and pcmcia support, some wireless support.

Gulfstream Aerospace – Product Support – Computerized Maintenance #airborne #product #support, #avionics


#

The beauty of Gulfstream’s personalized Computerized Maintenance Program (MyCMP) lies in its simplicity.

Gulfstream was the first aircraft manufacturer to create a Web-based program to organize, track and coordinate aircraft maintenance and inspections. The program is so well-regarded that for five consecutive years, Aviation International News has named it the top maintenance tracking program in the industry.

MyCMP is available to owners and operators at any hour of the day or night from any computer, smartphone or tablet with Internet access.

The program streamlines essential records management and creates a history of maintenance, inspections and compliances required of every aircraft with Federal Aviation Regulations (FARs) and Aeronautical Information Management (AIM). Detailed documentation coordinated through the original equipment manufacturer also helps establish aircraft value.

MyCMP

With the enhanced MyCMP, users have electronic recordkeeping and signature capabilities, as well as 24/7 access to analyst support.

MyCMP creates all-digital task cards that can be signed electronically. A PDF of the e-signed paperwork attaches to the aircraft history, which ensures airworthiness requirements are met.

Records management is only one aspect of MyCMP. Gulfstream also has systems analysts who are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to assist with maintenance questions. MyCMP analysts have an average of 15 years experience with Gulfstream aircraft and were chosen for the program because they are top technicians and quality control professionals.

CMP analysts also provide their expertise through a Gulfstream training program. MyCMP Web-based training sessions are offered on a monthly basis.

The bottom line for Gulfstream aircraft maintenance needs: better records management, quick, easy access to experts and numerous training sessions covering a host of technical topics.

MyCMP provides the whole package.

Clients Love the Convenience, Speed, and Accuracy of
Internet Proofreading from BusinessProofreading.com

Internet Proofreading Is Convenient

In this “I need it yesterday” world, you’re sure to agree with my clients that Internet proofreading is a blessing. The convenience of being able to simply email a message or attachment and have it returned to you polished and ready to impress is an absolute necessity. With Internet proofreading, all your copyediting can be handled quickly and professionally.

“In the advertising/copywriting business, I always hear from customers who are in a hurry for copyediting. It’s such a blessing to know that BusinessProofreading.com is available to help me out in a pinch. The convenience factor of being able to email or fax a project to Cathy and have it returned in just a short while is a real lifesaver!”

Internet Proofreading Is Fast

I constantly hear my clients’ kind words about quick turnaround. Internet proofreading, in and of itself, speeds up the process. And I always strive to meet your deadlines even if you have a rush job.

“Cathy Kessler has proven time and again to be a valuable asset in enhancing the effectiveness of many of my different types of written communications. I know that when I send something to Cathy for copyediting, not only will it be returned to me in a prompt manner, but also the document will be grammatically correct. Cathy’s helpful insights in the area of business proofreading have enabled me to clearly state what I want the reader to know, while doing it in a very straightforward, professional manner. I would highly recommend Cathy to anyone who understands the value of the well-edited written word.”

Internet Proofreading Is Accurate

Most of my clients rave about the accuracy of Internet proofreading. Because the copyediting is done in digital format, the results are more reliable than marking the changes on paper and then having to make adjustments on your document later. If you’d like to see the changes I’ve made while copyediting, just ask, and I’ll gladly mark them for you.

“It’s really hard to find your own mistakes, especially when you know how text/copy should read. I always run all my projects past Cathy’s meticulous eyes before releasing a project to press or production. On more than one occasion, she has found typos or grammatical errors that would have cost me money and aggravation to reprint, not to mention client dissatisfaction as a result, I’ve never had to reprint a project. I would highly recommend Cathy’s copyediting and proofreading services to anyone who writes or uses text/copy of any kind. She’s the best!!”

As your loved one is your main concern right now, it will not help them if you become sick. For this reason, you need to take care of yourself. With that in mind, the following family hospice caregiver resources and ideas are available to help you maintain your well-being:

  1. Eat three meals a day. It may be hard to eat if your loved one cannot, but remind yourself of why you need to eat. to stay strong.
  2. Get adequate rest. Some chores might not get done or there may be someone who would help if you let them know how. Can someone else shop for groceries or sweep up? Realize you can’t do everything, so let others help.
  3. Get outside for a few minutes every day. Twenty minutes in the fresh air will do wonders for your mood. You will return to your loved one refreshed.
  4. Speak honestly about how you are feeling. Good or bad, it helps to let another person know what you are thinking and feeling. Choose a person who makes you feel safe. Support is what you need right now.

Providence Hospice of Seattle’s pediatric grief support services helps Auburn family

Jayza Duhon and her grandfather, Lee A. Ford.

By Cynthia Flash
For the Auburn Reporter

At age 10, Jayza Duhon saw her grandfather Lee A. Ford every day. She and her parents lived with Ford and his wife Violet in their Auburn home and Jayza – their only grandchild – spent hours with him.

“She and my dad were very, very close,” recalled Jayza’s mother, D’Juna Duhon. “She would say, ‘Grandpa, I want to go to the store.’ She had $2 and got $30 worth of stuff and he paid for it. When things were frustrating her, she knew she could go to grandpa and it would be OK. In her world, he could make anything OK and better.”

Then, completely unexpectedly on the day before Father’s Day in 2009, Ford died of endocarditis – an infection that attacked the inner lining of his heart. Jayza was devastated.

Duhon, fearing for her daughter’s well-being and seeking help, turned to Providence Hospice of Seattle for children’s grief counseling. It’s a free service available to anyone in King County who is dealing with the death of a loved one. It’s the only program that provides both individual and group support to children and teens.

“Our staff is honored to be given the opportunity to provide this level of grief support to kids and teens in our community,” said Beverly Goldsmith, grief counselor with Providence Hospice of Seattle. “We hope many more will be open to using our services in the future.”

On Thursday, Jayza and D’Juna will be featured in the fundraising video at Providence Hospice of Seattle’s Pediatric Luncheon, which will raise money to support children’s hospice and grief support services.

Duhon recalls the hospice counselor who came to the family’s home to work with Jayza and give her the tools she needed to work through her grief.

“I didn’t want to fall in with that, ‘oh, yeah, they’re just kids, they’re resilient, they’ll bounce back, they’ll be OK.’ I wanted to make sure she had age-appropriate support,” Duhon said.

Jayza also attended group counseling at Providence Hospice of Seattle’s offices in Seattle and attended Camp Erin-King County, a free weekend summer camp in Carnation for children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one. Now, six years later, Jayza is a successful junior at Auburn Mountainview High School who is looking forward to attending college with hopes of becoming a doctor.

“She said the loss of her grandfather completely changed the direction in her life,” Duhon said.

Even though Jayza is a well-adjusted teen, she still turns to Providence Hospice of Seattle for support, said Duhon, who like her father did for 36 years, works at Boeing.

“About two years ago she came to me and asked if she could go back to Camp Erin. She came back as a teen. Part of it is being able to verbalize those emotions. It still hurts her. Through Providence Hospice and Camp Erin, it has really helped her be able to express how she feels about that loss.” Now Jayza wants to go back to Camp Erin as a volunteer.

Duhon herself had much to deal with after her father died. The family had bought a new home, she had to comfort her mother, who was widowed after a 56-year marriage, and her husband William was diagnosed with prostate cancer. She turned to Providence Hospice as well.

“They were a very good support system for me as a parent. They taught me how to not overstress things. It was very helpful.”

New lottery in support of hospice (From Salisbury Journal) #cheap #hotel #prices

New lottery in support of hospice

A NEW lottery has been launched in aid of Salisbury Hospice.

The Your Hospice Lottery will offer people the chance to take part in a weekly draw with a top prize of £1,000 to raise money for the work done by the charity.

It is hoped the lottery will raise in excess of £500,000 for Salisbury Hospice Charity over the next five years, and there will also be a £100 prize, four £25 prizes and 80 prizes of £10 to win as well as the chance of a weekly rollover prize of £250, which could go up to a maximum of £10,000.

John Munro, fundraising manager with Salisbury Hospice Charity, said: “We rely on the generosity of local people to help us raise the £1.5m needed each year for us to continue to help families in our community who are living with life-limiting illnesses.

“A home visit from a community nurse costs £100, while one bereavement support session to help loved ones through a difficult time costs £20. By playing the weekly lottery, supporters will be providing a valuable and regular income for Salisbury Hospice Charity which will help to run services and to plan patient care.”

Your Hospice Lottery also supports the work of St Helena Hospice, Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, and The J’s Hospice – but members specify which hospice they are playing in support of. By Salisbury Hospice Charity working in collaboration with the other hospices, overheads and costs are kept to a minimum so more funds can be used to support patients and their families.

It costs £1 per week per number to become a member of Your Hospice Lottery. People can pay by direct debit securely online via the Your Hospice Lottery website at yourhospicelottery.org.uk or by cheque, debit card or credit card by calling 0800 285 1390. Players must be 16 or over.

Our giving is out of an overflow of what’s been given to us through Jesus Christ, not for fear of anything negative in our lives. We give out of gratitude and love! You can give your gift safely and securely online – this is one of the easiest ways to give to Calvary Church. Thank you.

The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre #vitas #hospice #locations

#nightingale house hospice

#

The Nightingale was formed by a local group of concerned individuals who felt that more could be done to support people affected by cancer in Enfield. We aim to work together with existing local services to ensure that we provide comprehensive support.

We are here to help patients, relatives, carers, friends or those who are affected by cancer. We hope to be able to provide you with help along the way.

About The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre

The Nightingale Cancer Support Centre was launched in 2002 to help residents in the borough of Enfield whose lives have been touched by cancer and who were somehow slipping through the established care system.

A research project was undertaken to identify services that were obviously needed and those that were already being provided.

A steering group of health experts, social care workers and legal and business professionals came together with the aim of forming a new charity that would specifically meet the needs of Enfield borough residents.

The Nightingale serves patients, relatives, carers, friends and those who are concerned about cancer care. We hope to be able to provide help and information to those who need it along their journey.

We aim to work together with existing services within the borough and to co-ordinate local volunteer teams so that valuable resources are used to best effect.

We run our services from The Lancaster Centre which is situated on Lancaster Road, a short distance from Enfield Town. Both the W8 and 191 buses run past the centre and the nearest train station is Gordon Hill.

Meet the Reno, NV Family Law A+ Team

At the Law Office of Marilyn D. York, our special areas of expertise are getting the best possible divorce settlement for our clients and protecting them before, during and after the divorce. In that, we are the assiduous (hence A+ ) team. Legal teams that claim they will aggresively represent you or will fight for you sound one dimensional. We are assiduous: hard-working, attentive, diligent, tenacious, industrious, scrupulous, studious, unflagging, untiring, zealous and yes we will also aggressively fight for you where your case needs it but we are so much more than that.

We protect all of our clients’ rights on issues likely to arise in a divorce case, including:
Equal custody More visitation
Paternity testing Asset protection
Preventing move-aways Opposing restraining orders
Terminating parental rights Fair child/spousal support
All other issues of family law

Our practice is focused on securing men s rights. Even though most Nevada laws, as written, do not discriminate against men, courts often seem to favor women in their decisions. This bias is common in family courts around the globe, and is rooted in human history. It usually takes great effort by a legal counsel to secure fair rights for fathers to be able to maintain a constant and vital presence in their children s lives.

We at the Law Office of Marilyn D. York know how truly important it is for children to grow up with both parents raising them, even if the family has been fractured by a parental split. That s why we fight so hard for our clients. The greatest beneficiaries of a just court settlement are not only the fathers we represent, but their children.

Protecting the children is my main concern and cases where I can
improve a child s life are always my highest priority.

Marilyn D. York, Esq.

Some Pet Owners Game the Emotional Support Animal System to Fly Pets

Some Pet Owners Game the System to Fly Pets for Free

WATCH How Easy Is It to Pass Off an Everyday Pet as an Emotional Support Animal?

Emotional support animals can help people suffering from anxiety and other emotional disorders, but some pet owners are gaming the system in order to have their everyday pets travel with them for free.

Federal regulations allow a legitimate emotional support animal, whether it be a dog, a cat, a pot-bellied pig or even a miniature horse in one case, to travel on airplanes in the cabin with the owner, outside of a carrier, and for free if the owner has proper documentation, which means a letter from a doctor or other mental health professional. The animal must be well-behaved and there must be adequate space onboard. The airlines are allowed to ask people traveling with emotional support animals for that documentation, but they are not required to.

Genevieve from Atlanta, who asked that her last name not be used, told ABC News’ “20/20” she never had a need for an emotional support animal, or ESA. She simply wanted to fly with her dog, a lab-terrier mix named Kali, by her side in the cabin of the plane. So, about four years ago, she said she lied about having an emotional illness so that Kali could become an emotional support animal.

“I heard from a friend. that you could get your dog certified as something called an ‘emotional support animal,’ an ESA, and at the time, I thought it was a very good idea,” Genevieve said. “I had wanted to take flights with her for family functions. At that point, I thought, ‘what’s the harm?’”

Genevieve took an online psychological questionnaire to obtain a letter to qualify her dog Kali as an emotional support animal.

Genevieve found a website that provided a psychological evaluation for free, all she had to do was fill out a questionnaire.

“It was a website where I was able to. answer questions and possible emotional symptoms I had, and if I answered them in a certain way, I could get a diagnosis,” she said.

Genevieve said she provided fake answers for the psychological questionnaire, and received the special letter she needed to show she was permitted to have an emotional support animal. She said the diagnosis she was given was a “panic attack disorder.”

Once she had the letter, Genevieve said, “I could begin taking [Kali] on airplanes with me.”

Emotional support animals help people by being companions, unlike service dogs, which are trained to perform specific tasks to help people with physical and mental disabilities.

Paul Mundell, the CEO of Canine Companions for Independence, said emotional support animals “provide a valuable service” to people who need them. The problem is there are some pet owners like Genevieve who find it easy to take advantage of the law and the airlines.

“I flew about six times with Kali and I think they looked at my letter twice,” Genevieve said.

To see how easy it is to have a pet fly for free as an emotional support animal, ABC News bought meaningless certificates, instead of getting a letter from a mental health professional, proclaiming three different animals as emotional support animals and tried to get those animals on three different airlines.

First, we got our correspondent’s 28-pound dog Archie declared an emotional support animal through USDogRegistry.org, where for a fee of $254, with expedited shipping, we bought the deluxe kit, which included a leash, a vest, a photo ID and a certificate with Archie’s name and registration number.

While the paperwork looked official, in reality, it had no meaning. The website mentioned the need to have a doctor’s note, but did not ask for any proof.

On our first flight, we called ahead to JetBlue to let them know our correspondent was boarding a flight with an emotional support animal. But when we got to the ticket counter, the JetBlue attendants didn’t check our paperwork or Archie’s tags. They just sent our correspondent and Archie on their way onto the plane.

Next, we bought an emotional support animal certificate for a Lionhead rabbit named Leo. For $99, the ESA (Emotional Support Animal) Registration of America sent us the ESA VIP Kit, which included a registration certificate. This website also says you need to have a note from a mental health professional.

We called ahead to Delta Air Lines to let them know we were bringing an emotional support animal on a flight with us. Delta said to bring documentation, but no one checked it at the ticket counter so we got on a flight with Leo. The airline wasn’t doing anything wrong since it’s not required to ask for documentation at the terminal.

The airlines “don’t want to be intrusive into a person’s private life. They don’t want to embarrass someone or put them on the spot,” Paul Mundell said. “They want to do the right thing, [which] is probably to, if in doubt, accept someone’s presence with their animal at face value as an emotional support animal.”

Then, the ESA Registration of America sold us a certificate for an albino African pygmy hedgehog named Snickers. We tried to take him on a Delta flight to Boston from New York City, but this time, a Delta agent stopped us, saying we didn’t have the proper letter from a mental health professional to allow the hedgehog onboard.

So we wanted to try again. We booked our correspondent on a Southwest Airlines flight from Newark to Nashville. At the ticket counter, the Southwest agent asked for documentation for Snickers. Once we showed her the ESA certificate, we were allowed to board our flight.

Airlines for America, an airline industry trade group, said in a statement to ABC News, “We trust our passengers are honest in communicating their need for service assistant animal support.”

United States Dog Registry declined to comment, but ESA said its certificate is a valuable addition to a doctor’s note.

Paul Mundell of Canine Companions say people who fake their need for an emotional support animal should be ashamed. He said fake ESAs are taking up valuable cabin space, possibly denying accommodations for real assistance animals. What’s more, he said, he has started to hear that poorly-behaved fake ESAs have been disrupting the work of real service animals.

Genevieve said at first she didn’t see anything wrong with faking a condition so she could fly with her dog, but after taking Kali on half a dozen or so trips, she said a friend confronted her.

“[My friend] started to tell me that people were having adverse consequences from this. Legitimate people with legitimate animals were getting confronted,” Genevieve said.

So Kali’s flying days are over, and Genevieve said she is now confessing her story in hopes that other fakers will think twice about what they’re doing.


Service Desk Outsourcing Pricing Models: What You Need to Know #outsourced #help


#

IT Managed Services Blog

“How do you price your service desk outsourcing offering?” This is by far one of the most common questions that I am asked by companies that are researching options to outsource their service desk operations. The answer is “It depends.” In this latest article we will explore some of the factors that determine which pricing model is used and why as well as some of the most common formulas in the market today.

There are two typical methods of pricing that ABS utilizes for our service desk outsourcing services: per-incident pricing and fixed fee pricing and in some instances a combination of both.

Per-incident pricing is our most common model and is incorporated in conjunction with the shared model of our ABS Global Service Desk offering. Here’s how it works. We first work with each new customer to understand its unique support needs, call volumes, incident (ticket) volumes, estimated talk times, support hours, applications, SLAs, etc. As you can imagine, all of these elements will be factored into determining the actual per-incident price. Next, we establish a monthly incident volume (i.e. baseline) that we will use to staff the service desk in order to guarantee service levels and have enough bandwidth to cover typical variances. The agreed upon monthly volume is then multiplied by the per-incident price to establish the base monthly fee. In the event of any overages above the monthly incident volume, we simply apply the same per-incident amount to the number of additional incidents.

Fixed-fee (monthly) pricing is most often used in conjunction with a dedicated service desk model. The math is very straightforward for this approach that is primarily based on the number of service desk resources that are dedicated to a client. Fixed-fee pricing with a dedicated model can be very helpful from a budgeting perspective. However, it may be possible that a client is paying for resources that are underutilized at times, especially if volumes vary significantly in different seasons or when paying for the staffing of dedicated resources during afterhours and weekends. It can also be more difficult to quickly scale up (or down) and react to significant increases (decreases) in volume that is typically easier to handle with a shared/per-incident model.

Hybrid model: In some cases, a hybrid pricing model may be an option which is exactly what we offer to some of our clients when it makes sense. This combination can offer the benefits of the fixed-fee pricing for a dedicated team with the cost effective per-incident pricing model of a shared service for afterhours and weekends.

Of course, these aren’t the only pricing models utilized. Per-user (or per-seat), per call (or per contact), and per minute pricing are also common; each with its own pros and cons. Here are some factors to keep in mind when considering any of these options.

Per-user (per-seat): Many people like the per-user model since it can be a very easy calculation based on the number of users that are entitled to call the service desk. While this may be true, consider the following scenarios: First, vendors will need to assume an average number of calls and incidents per month for every user. Therefore it is quite possible that you may be over paying for volumes that you never actually use. Second, it can sometimes be tedious to administer the number of entitled users on a regular basis which varies as employees are added or deleted.

Per-call: This pricing model is based solely on the number of calls handled by the service desk. Although this is similar to the per-incident model, on the downside you may end up paying for large spikes in very short calls as a result of an outage or other critical event. If you are considering this type of model, be sure that your vendor is factoring in such short calls and has the ability to immediately post outage messages to the IVR system in order to prevent unnecessary calls from the reaching the service desk.

Per-minute: If you are looking for a true service desk solution that can provide first call technical resolution, then you should be wary of a per-minute pricing model. First, this type of model is typically indicative of a call answering service where the agents are less technically savvy. Second, there is little incentive to resolve the user’s issue in an efficient and timely manner.

In our experience of providing over 15 years of service desk outsourcing to our customers, we believe the per-incident model to be the most well-balanced approach. Here’s why:

  1. Pay for what you use – unlike the per-user or even the dedicated model, you aren’t paying for bandwidth that you’re not using.
  2. Scalable to meet changing business conditions – we typically review volumes on a quarterly basis to ensure that the established monthly incident volume is accurate and will adjust up or down as needed.
  3. Most cost effective for afterhours and weekend support – most companies that require afterhours and weekend support have significantly less volume during these periods. Using a dedicated/fixed-fee model can be quite expensive in these cases.

Now that we have addressed the various pricing options available, it is important that you work with your vendors to understand what they are proposing and why. There is no right or wrong pricing model, it’s a matter of which one is the best suited to your company and finding a vendor that is flexible enough to deliver it.


Enabling UEFI on Virtual Machines #uefi, #virtual #machine, #uefi #support, #vms, #server

Enabling UEFI on Virtual Machines

UEFI support may be becoming more and more popular, but it can still be problematic to enable on VMs. Discover how to implement UEFI on several leading VM platforms.

Due to Microsoft’s requirement of Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) instead of BIOS firmware for computers certified for Windows 8 and later, UEFI is now supported in nearly all new computers. Although UEFI isn’t supported by all operating systems, it is becoming more and more popular.

Today we’ll discuss UEFI support of the popular virtual machine (VM) platforms and how to enable UEFI for your virtual machines. However, keep in mind that you can’t switch a virtual machine with an installed operating system from BIOS firmware to UEFI. That will cause the operating system to fail to boot. You need to enable UEFI and then install an operating system with UEFI.

Just like with modern computers, you can temporarily switch back to BIOS firmware for instance, to load a live bootable operating system that doesn’t support UEFI. Let’s take a closer look at how to enable UEFI on specific VM platforms.

VMware Player and Workstation

The virtual machine products offered by VMware support UEFI, but BIOS firmware is enabled by default. Furthermore, the VMware products do not provide an option in the GUI for enabling UEFI.

UEFI support must be enabled by manually editing the .VMX file or by using a third-party tool like VM Tweaker .

To manually edit the .VMX file, simply open with a text editor and add the following line and then save:

That’s it now that particular VM should run with UEFI.

VirtualBox

VirtualBox by default uses the BIOS firmware for virtual machines. It supports EFI too, but unfortunately does not support booting UEFI-based system volumes, which includes Windows 8 in UEFI mode. However, if you’d still like to test or use EFI with other operating systems, enabling EFI support is easy. Open the VM settings, select System. and on the Motherboard tab, select Enable EFI (special OSes only) .

Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 R2

Among the many new and changed features of Hyper-V in Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft introduced UEFI support. Virtual machines can be created with Generation 1 support, which uses BIOS firmware, or Generation 2, which enables UEFI and Secure Boot.

After a virtual machine is created you cannot change its specified Generation, but you can optionally disable the Secure Boot support, which may actually be required to run Linux operating systems.

There aren’t really any special settings to enable UEFI support in Hyper-V. When creating virtual machines you’re asked which Generation you’d like to enable you must choose Generation 2 for UEFI and Secure Boot support.

Virtual machines created with Generation 2 also bring other new functionality, such as PXE boot via a standard network adapter or booting from a SCSI virtual hard disk or virtual DVD. Generation 1 implements the virtual machine like previous versions of Hyper-V and is still useful for when using legacy devices and operating systems.

What is the GASTRIC SLEEVE? Information on cost, benefits of vertical sleeve?


#

GastricSleeve (Vertical Sleeve Gastrectomy)

The gastric sleeve is the lastest weight loss procedure that shows promising results. By restricting food absorbtion and reducing hunger the gastric sleeve might be your best option. Please consult with our surgeon or staff to find out if this is the best procedure for you. Advantages of gastric sleeve include lower cost, less dumping, fewer complications and does not require adjustments after the initial surgery.

The vertical sleeve gastrectomy is a restrictive form of weight loss surgery in which approximately 85% of the stomach is removed leaving a cylindrical or sleeve shaped stomach with a capacity ranging from about 60 to 150 cc, depending upon the surgeon performing the procedure. Unlike many other forms of bariatric surgery, the outlet valve and the nerves to the stomach remain intact and, while the stomach is drastically reduced in size, its function is preserved. Again, unlike other forms of surgery such as the Roux en Y gastric bypass, the sleeve gastrectomy is not reversible.

Because the new stomach continues to function normally there are far fewer restrictions on the foods which patients can consume after surgery, albeit that the quantity of food eaten will be considerably reduced. This is seen by many patients as being one of the great advantages of the sleeve gastrectomy, as is the fact that the removal of the majority of the stomach also results in the virtual elimination of hormones produced within the stomach which stimulate hunger.

Perhaps the greatest advantage of the gastric sleeve lies in the fact that it does not involve any bypass of the intestinal tract and patients do not therefore suffer the complications of intestinal bypass such as intestinal obstruction, anemia, osteoporosis, vitamin deficiency and protein deficiency. It also makes it a suitable form of surgery for patients who are already suffering from anemia, Crohn’s disease and a variety of other conditions that would place them at high risk for surgery involving intestinal bypass.

Facts about the gastric sleeve or sleeve gastrectomy:

Alternative names: vertical sleeve gastrectomy, sleeve gastrectomy, greater curvature gastrectomy, parietal gastrectomy, gastric reduction and vertical gastroplasty.

Surgery for high BMI patients. For patients with a particularly high body mass index (typically 50+) many forms of weight loss surgery are either difficult to perform or present increased risk. As a result, a vertical sleeve gastrectomy (or increasingly a laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy) is sometimes performed as the first of a two-part weight loss solution to provide an initial drop in weight which then makes other bariatric follow up possible at a reduced level of risk.

Surgery for low BMI patients. For obese patients with a relatively low body mass index the vertical sleeve gastrectomy can also prove a good choice, especially where existing conditions (such as anemia or Crohn’s disease) prevent them from having other forms of bariatric surgery. In addition, patients may choose this form of surgery if they are concerned about the long-term affects of bypass surgery or object to having a ‘foreign’ body implanted into their body, as is the case with lap band surgery.

Laparoscopic Sleeve Gastrectomy Surgery

During sleeve gastrectomy, the surgeon will remove the larger, rounded part of the stomach.

  • The remaining stomach looks like a sleeve (or hose or tube) and holds about 15 percent as much food as the original stomach.
  • The surgeon will remove the larger, rounded part of the stomach from the body. (This is the only gastric surgery in which part of the stomach is taken out of the body.)
  • Unlike gastric bypass, which changes stomach openings, sleeve gastrectomy leaves the openings intact.
  • It may be a safer and more effective option than gastric bypass for patients with very high BMI, those with medical problems like anemia, Crohn�s disease, osteoporosis, extensive prior surgeries and other complex medical conditions.
  • Sleeve gastrectomy may be safer than gastric bypass for patients who have a number of health risks.
  • It lowers the risk of ulcers compared to gastric bypass.
  • The surgery cuts away the part of the stomach that produces grehlin, a stomach hormone that stimulates hunger.
  • Though the stomach is smaller, the openings are left intact, so digestion can go on as normal.
  • The body is free of foreign objects like the LAP-BAND� or Realize Band.
  • May be converted to gastric bypass or duodenal switch if necessary for additional weight loss
  • Expected excess weight loss for stand-alone procedure is 60 to 70% at two years
  • Sleeve gastrectomy is more common in Europe, but most American health insurance carriers still consider it an investigational procedure and do not cover the cost. But that is rapidly changing so please consult our office to see if your insurance will cover the gastric sleeve.
  • Anytime you have anesthesia or surgery, there is a risk of blood clots, other complications or death.
  • Do not smoke. Smoking would put you at high risk for infection, blood clots, slow healing and other life-threatening complications.
  • Complications can occur with the stapling, such as leaks or bleeding.
  • You may need malabsorptive surgery � intestinal bypass or duodenal switch � in addition to your sleeve gastrectomy in order to lose all the weight you need and want to lose.
  • The smaller portion of the stomach may stretch.
  • Foods that you eat now may cause discomfort, nausea or vomiting after your surgery.
  • Gastric surgery puts you at higher than normal risk of developing gallstones and gallbladder disease.
  • You will not lose weight or maintain your weight loss unless you eat a healthy diet and exercise regularly. This is the reason we stress long-term follow-up with our center and your doctor.

    At age 10, Jayza Duhon saw her grandfather Lee A. Ford every day. She and her parents lived with Ford and his wife Violet in their Auburn home and Jayza – their only grandchild – spent hours with him.

    “She and my dad were very, very close,” recalled Jayza’s mother, D’Juna Duhon. “She would say, ‘Grandpa, I want to go to the store.’ She had $2 and got $30 worth of stuff and he paid for it. When things were frustrating her, she knew she could go to grandpa and it would be OK. In her world, he could make anything OK and better.”

    Then, completely unexpectedly on the day before Father’s Day in 2009, Ford died of endocarditis – an infection that attacked the inner lining of his heart. Jayza was devastated.

    Duhon, fearing for her daughter’s well-being and seeking help, turned to Providence Hospice of Seattle for children’s grief counseling. It’s a free service available to anyone in King County who is dealing with the death of a loved one. It’s the only program that provides both individual and group support to children and teens.

    “Our staff is honored to be given the opportunity to provide this level of grief support to kids and teens in our community,” said Beverly Goldsmith, grief counselor with Providence Hospice of Seattle. “We hope many more will be open to using our services in the future.”

    On Thursday, Jayza and D’Juna will be featured in the fundraising video at Providence Hospice of Seattle’s Pediatric Luncheon, which will raise money to support children’s hospice and grief support services.

    Duhon recalls the hospice counselor who came to the family’s home to work with Jayza and give her the tools she needed to work through her grief.

    “I didn’t want to fall in with that, ‘oh, yeah, they’re just kids, they’re resilient, they’ll bounce back, they’ll be OK.’ I wanted to make sure she had age-appropriate support,” Duhon said.

    Jayza also attended group counseling at Providence Hospice of Seattle’s offices in Seattle and attended Camp Erin-King County, a free weekend summer camp in Carnation for children and teens who have experienced the death of a loved one. Now, six years later, Jayza is a successful junior at Auburn Mountainview High School who is looking forward to attending college with hopes of becoming a doctor.

    “She said the loss of her grandfather completely changed the direction in her life,” Duhon said.

    Even though Jayza is a well-adjusted teen, she still turns to Providence Hospice of Seattle for support, said Duhon, who like her father did for 36 years, works at Boeing.

    “About two years ago she came to me and asked if she could go back to Camp Erin. She came back as a teen. Part of it is being able to verbalize those emotions. It still hurts her. Through Providence Hospice and Camp Erin, it has really helped her be able to express how she feels about that loss.” Now Jayza wants to go back to Camp Erin as a volunteer.

    Duhon herself had much to deal with after her father died. The family had bought a new home, she had to comfort her mother, who was widowed after a 56-year marriage, and her husband William was diagnosed with prostate cancer. She turned to Providence Hospice as well.

    “They were a very good support system for me as a parent. They taught me how to not overstress things. It was very helpful.”

    HIKE WITH US

    Hikers, ramblers, and wanderers are all welcome to join the Crossroads Hospice Society for the 14th Annual Hike for Hospice on Sunday May 1, 2016. This national pledge-based family event takes place on the first Sunday of May, raises funds to support people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones. Take a hike around our site to find out more.

    WHERE: Port Moody City Hall 100 Newport Drive, Port Moody
    WHEN: 9am – 12pm on Sunday, May 1, 2016
    WHAT: 5km, family fun, pet-friendly walk to support people living with a terminal illness
    WHY: To raise awareness about palliative care and funds for hospice care in your community

    When you participate in Hike for Hospice you will be joining thousands of others across Canada, hiking in support of hospice palliative care or in memory of a loved one. Hospice palliative care provides physical, psychological, social, spiritual and practical support to people living with life-threatening illness, their loved ones and the bereaved. Your fundraising dollars will go towards providing physical and emotional care to the terminally ill and ongoing bereavement support after the death of a loved one.

    Each year this pledge-based, national, annual family event takes place on the first Sunday of May and raises funds to support people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones. The purpose of the 5km hike is not only to raise much needed funds, but to raise awareness of the many challenges faced by hospice palliative care and to promote the wonderful work that all volunteers and professionals in the field perform daily.

    Inpatient Hospice Care

    While most hospice care is provided at home, in a home for the dying or comfort care home, or in a nursing home, hospice care may also be provided in an inpatient setting. Inpatient hospice care can be provided in either a designated unit called a hospice unit or in a scatter bed at a hospital. Hospice inpatient care is available for individuals needing help in controlling pain, their symptoms or for those whose family is exhausted or in crisis and needing respite. It is usually used for the last two weeks of a person s life. Inpatient hospice care is also appropriate for persons already admitted to a hospital who are actively dying. Inpatient Hospice care always depends on bed availability. Hospice will search for an available bed, call you back, and arrange for transportation if necessary. The Hospice staff tries to arrange for care in the site of your choice, but sometimes beds are scarce or not available.

    The Lifetime Care Hildebrandt Hospice Care Center

    • Locally, this is the first 11-bed free-standing hospice facility in Rochester. The Lifetime Care Hildebrandt Hospice Care Center creates the sense of welcoming and individual care that people need at the end of life.
    • The LIfetime Care Hildebrant Hospice Care Center is located at 2652 Ridegeway Avenue, so close to Unity Hospital, it will ease the transition from acute care to hospice care for patients, families and their physicians – reducing a major barrier to hospice care.
    • For further information please view or call (585) 214-1000.

    The Palliative Center for Caring

    The Palliative Center for Caring offer patients and their families needed expert care and services in a place that is warm, comforting and peaceful. The first of its kind in Rochester – one located in a skilled nursing facility – the Center meets a vital community need by providing end-of-life services to address pain, symptom and crisis managment for patients who would otherwise require hospitalization. Additionally, the specially trained staff works to address individual psychosocial and spiritual issues with patients and family members.

  • Located on a private floor in The Heritage on St. Ann’s Irondequoit campus, this five-bed impatient unity welcomes individuals coming from their homes or the hospital; a sixth room functions as a living/lounge area for families and visitors. The Center provides a full range of physical, emotional and spiritual support from highly trained VNS and St. Ann’s Community medical personnel, therapists, social workers and pastoral care staff, along with pharmacy services. If desired, caregivers may receive a respite from volunteers or staff, accessing a private lounge, common areas throughout the campus, including the lobby filled with greenery, cafe, library with internet access, St. Ann’s Chapel and peaceful walking paths.
  • The Center serves as a model for future patnerships with the intent of strengthening and expanding hospice care in our community. The Center is located at 1450 Portland Ave. Rochester, New York 14621. To make a referral, please call (585) 787-8315.

    Family Caregiver Support

    Caregivers, we honor you and we’re here to help. At Hospice of the Valley, you and your loved one are the central members of our care team. We are here to support your goals, carry out your wishes and lend a hand. Here’s how the social worker, chaplain and volunteer team members support family caregivers:

    • Facilitates discussion and completion of living wills and medical power of attorney forms.
    • Assists with health insurance issues.
    • Provides resources to support care for the patient at home; helps if transition is needed to another living environment.
    • Connects families to community resources, such as food box deliveries.
    • Arranges respite care for patient to give family caregiver occasional breaks.
    • Makes referrals to other hospice programs, such as 11th Hour Companion and the New Song Center for Grieving Children.

    While honoring each individual’s belief system, the chaplain offers reassurance and listens to the caregiver’s fears and worries – natural feelings during one of life’s most difficult passages.

    Hospice of the Valley trains community volunteers to support our patients and their caregivers. Volunteers may run errands, giving busy caregivers one less thing to do. And they spend time with patients – talking, listening and offering emotional support – giving family caregivers time to attend to their own needs.

    Caregiver Testimonials

    Hospice of the Valley was a Godsend for my mother, Helen Vento, at a time when she really needed a helping and caring hand. I called hospice when I realized Mom’s health was rapidly declining and that she would no longer be able to take care of her basic needs.

    My mom, Leclerc Stevens, passed away this past April, just days after her 96th birthday. She was fortunate enough to be under the care of nurse Linda Palumbo from Hospice of the Valley.

    By Beverly Medlyn
    Communications Director

    Australia is known for koalas, kangaroos, Crocodile Dundee—and now—Dying to Know Day. August 8 is set aside for families to talk about the really important stuff in life—including death.

    Which brings to mind a family love story…

    With a romantic swoosh, Andrew Hanley came into my mother Lucy’s life.

    The Australian admired this American woman from afar as both traveled with some 50 people on an organized tour of Great Britain. Though they barely had spoken with each other along the way, when Andrew returned home to Australia he penned a note to my mother in Arizona, asking the tour company to forward the letter to her.

    Lucy and Andrew struck up an overseas correspondence, long letters about their full lives—marriages, divorces, kids, careers, and his military service in World War II.

    Next thing we knew, Andrew came to Arizona for a visit, his adult nephew in tow for the sake of propriety. One afternoon Andrew and Lucy shed the chaperone and snuck off to hatch a plan. Not long after, he moved here. For two years they had the time of their lives, traveling in the United States and Australia. Ultimately they were married at their home in north Phoenix.

Referrals to additional support resources are made when appropriate. Please see below for more details on available services, and for upcoming groups and events.

    Initially, I felt as many do in seeking help, fear of being vulnerable or weak, fear of being judged. You helped me understand the many paths of grief. Thank you.
    A Bereaved Daughter

    The death of a loved one is the most profound of all sorrows.

    Grief is a natural and normal response to loss. Though there are common experiences people share as they grieve, each of us has a unique experience of grief as influenced by our personalities, life experiences, coping styles, and the meaning of the loss to us. Loss impacts our minds, bodies, and hearts. By tending to your grief, a sense of increased comfort and slow healing comes with time. Caring and supportive people can make a significant difference along this path. The Yolo Hospice Bereavement Services staff is available to be a source of caring support to you.

    There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are messengers of overwhelming grief and unspeakable love.
