November is American Diabetes Month

November is American Diabetes Month

American Diabetes Month kicks off in November, so it’s time to start talking about diabetes. How much do you know about this disease? Sure, everyone knows that diabetics have to take insulin to control their blood sugar. And everyone remembers that Liberty Medical commerical for diabetic supplies that starred Wilford Brimley. But do you know the cause, symptoms, or effects of diabetes?

Diabetes currently affects 30 million children and adults in the United States, with another 86 million Americans suffering from prediabetes. Estimates show that unless action is taken, nearly one in three American adults will have diabetes by 2050. This year’s American Diabetes Month campaign, sponsored by the American Diabetes Association, is focusing on nutrition and cooking. The goal is to teach people to live a more active and healthier lifestyle through altering their cooking habits and trying delicious new recipes. Diet is a huge part of controlling diabetes, as what you eat dictates your blood sugar levels.

Take our quiz below to learn more about this disease and then share it with a friend to help spread diabetes awareness!

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

It’s that time of year – pink is everywhere. From neon pink shoes during football games, to rose lights glowing in the northern entrance of the White House, it is nearly impossible to forget about Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The color pink has become a trusty symbol of all things breast cancer. However, for many, it is all about flashing color instead of actually learning about the disease. While awareness of breast cancer has increased exponentially from the pink campaign, often times facts and figures are left out of the awareness equation. For example, did you know that breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in American women when you exclude cancers of the skin? Or that breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among US women – losing out the number spot to lung cancer. Let’s not forget about men that are diagnosed with breast cancer, because there are 2,150 of them each year. Unfortunately, 410 of these men will die each year – many because they did not realize they had breast cancer until it had progressed to other parts of the body.

Test your knowledge of breast cancer and how it affects women (and men) by taking our informative quiz. Do your part in learning more about the disease so that we can form a well-educated public that knows the causes, symptoms, and treatments for breast cancer as well as other diseases.

National Physical Therapy Month

National Physical Therapy Month

October is National Physical Therapy Month! It just so happens that physical therapy is one of our specialties that we provide to many of our patients. Physical therapy is a form of rehabilitative treatment that primarily relies upon exercises and equipment to help people regain or improve their physical abilities. It can help decrease pain in patients, as well as improve their mobility, physical health, and fitness levels. This type of treatment is typically pursued when a person experiences a problem while moving that prevents them from performing their activities of daily living. Common problems that physical therapy can help with include sciatica, degenerative disc disease, fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis and bone fractures.

A physical therapist is a professional that is an expert in the way a person’s body works and moves. Using their knowledge, they can help people live healthier lifestyles, teach injury-prevention, and promote overall wellness. It is their goal to help patients regain functional independence and return to a full life in their home or community. What’s unique about our physical therapy program is that your physical therapist actually comes into your home, saving you a trip to the hospital or clinic. Our physical therapists will work with you and your physician to determine the best time for you to complete your home care therapy and begin out-patient services.

Now that you know a little more about physical therapy and how it is used, take our informative quiz to test your expertise and celebrate National Physical Therapy Month!

Which is Right for You – Home Health or Home Care?

Which is Right for You – Home Health or Home Care?

The line between home health and home care is often very confusing. Many potential patients come to us and don’t even realize we offer these two separate services. We are even guilty of using the two terms interchangeably without making a clear difference. Therefore, it’s time to help clear up the difference between home health and home care services.

Home Health – Skilled nursing or therapy services that are delivered to a homebound patient and deemed medically necessary by a doctor. It is usually covered by insurance for a period of time.

Home Care – Home health aide or caretaker services that are typically not covered by insurance (you must pay privately) and not necessarily for homebound patients. This can include skilled nursing care even if you do not have a doctor’s orders.

Still confused over which service is better for you? Try taking our helpful quiz to determine whether you should choose home health or home care! It takes you through a series of qualifying questions that will guide you to the right solution. If you still have questions, please feel free to contact us at any time. We are here to help!
