A Guide to Durable Medical Equipment And Medical Supplies -

{Q}First, the basic needs of elderly or ill people must be addressed before they or their family members can think about more abstract or long-term issues.

Second, it is very difficult to obtain information about meeting these
basic needs, especially when it comes to finding the right products or
supplies. The policies and practices of third-party payers - whether
private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid - are often confusing and inconsistent.

Nevertheless, with a little persistence and some basic information, you can become a more knowledgeable and satisfied consumer. The reward will be an improved quality of life for both the elderly person and the caregiver. {EQ}

Managing Stress - Visiting Nurse Service of New York

Managing Stress - Visiting Nurse Service of New York: Stress Management Tools

Symon also recommends incorporating relaxation techniques. These tools can be very helpful to people coping with long-term stress, such as caregivers, she says.

Pausing to take a few deep breaths slows down the heart and sends a message to the brain that you are calm, which releases hormones to counteract stress. Exercise, such as taking a walk, will also help.

But there's another technique that you might not think of: Do something you find enjoyable. “One of the most important things we remind our clients to do is to make sure they find ways to bring joy into their lives,” she says. “You might get a moment to yourself and think it would be a good time to pay a bill. But instead try to incorporate something that brings you joy. You can’t get rid of the stress, but you can do things that will help to decrease it.” So call a friend, spend time with a grandchild, or find a favorite TV show or movie on Netflix.

Top 10 Codes You Aren’t Meant To Know - Listverse

Stores, hospitals, entertainment venues, and other places
where the public are together in large numbers, use secret codes to pass
information between store employees. These are meant to be a secret as
they don’t want to alarm the non-staff members or alert someone (like a
thief) to the fact that they have been noticed. Many stores have their
own codes – for example WalMart, but there are a number that are nearly
universal in application. This is a list of ten secret codes that may
prove useful to you in future, or at least dispel any curiosity you may
have if you hear them.
