We all look forward to summer. The picnics, beach, warm weather and time off from work are all promising yearly traditions. However, along with the extra strength of the sunshine comes a bit of danger, in the form of skin cancer.

Many people do not realize that skin cancer is the most common of all types of cancer. Each year in the U.S., the American Cancer Society estimates more than 3.5 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer; plus over 73,000 who get the most dangerous kind of skin cancer, known as melanoma. Of course, skin cancer is a danger year round, as UV rays do not go away in the winter, especially in heat of southern states like Louisiana. However, the summer months increase the odds of getting skin cancer and melanoma significantly.

As CAREgivers at CARE, Inc., we are all very trained and used to seeing with – and dealing with patients with Alzheimer's. Despite the heartbreaking and often frustrating moments that we see between the family members and the patients who suffer from Alzheimer's Disease, sometimes we must remind ourselves and the families of the many blessings that can be seen from an outsider’s perspective.

Yes, it is majorly disappointing to realize that your aging parent is the same parent who lovingly swaddled you, held you, changed your diapers, taught you how to walk, eat, read and brought you through the many challenges of youth. Most people can thank their parents for helping them to become the fine adults they have turned out to be. Consider that one of the many blessings.

Ever since the Affordable Care Act was passed in 2014, more companies across the nation, and even in Louisiana, have cut back on the extensive costs associated with health insurance coverage to its employees. Many new workers are finding that benefits are less available in the job market, as companies seek to save on payroll expenses to adjust to the new trend. But what is this costing them in the long run?

Higher turnover, cutbacks in overtime or hourly wages, and other adjustments have become commonplace in the workforce. In Louisiana, workers are finding that companies who still offer medical benefits are fewer, and that those who do are more of the exception than the norm.

CARE, Inc. is one of those exceptions. All full time employees are provided with full insurance benefits that follow the Affordable Care Act guidelines, which is a competitive advantage for them in both attracting and keeping talented employees. The company has built leverage by keeping their medical benefits intact, especially in a job market where so many other companies are slashing them.

When seeking In-Home Care Services you always have one thing in mind – the best care for your loved one. Your wish is to see your family member or loved one live comfortably and peacefully. However, it is a known fact that getting the right service is not always easy. This is becoming more of a challenge nowadays as more-and-more caregivers crop up every other day. You risk entrusting the life of your parent, guardian, sibling or any other person to an unreliable and untrustworthy service provider.

As you age you will definitely want some assistance in your daily activities in the comfort of your home. You will need to find a private pay home care that will meet all your needs and treat you as family. At CARE Inc, we offer a variety of options for private pay home care. You will either choose the full time care where you have someone to help out around the clock or the part time where you only get assistance for a few hours during the day.

There can be a lot of individuals out there who need constant help – may it be our elderly people, our handicapped family members, our loved ones who have special needs, and even those who are victims of accidents or illnesses. These people apparently need the kind of care which most busy family members cannot provide. That is why organizations or institutions which provide personal assistance for daily living come in handy. However, this does not mean that if we leave our loved ones under their care, we do not love them anymore. Actually this can be the best solution and the greatest act we can provide them to show that we love them and we care for them.

Old age is a sensitive phase; elderly people need care and comfort to lead a healthy life without worries and anxiety. Lack of awareness regarding the changing behavioral patterns in elderly people at home leads to abuse of them by their kin. Hence this article deals with the issues that affect the lives of senior citizens and further complicate into major physiological and psychological problems.

Birth, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age are the most crucial stages in a man's life. All these stages have their very own issues and troubles. As each level passes the physical strength deteriorates as well as the mental stability lessens. It is believed there are over 80 million older folks in India. Since age progresses, various medical issues happen, some of the particular known diseases usually are blood pressure, diabetes, heart failure issues, arthritis, cancer malignancy, joint pains, tuberculosis, as well as kidney infections.

As people age, they have more of a tendency to let certain things fall by the wayside. Teeth and gums seem like a small piece of the pie when it comes to health issues, so if you are a caregiver and bringing your relative or patient to the doctor frequently, but ignoring their visits to the dentist, this could be detrimental to their health. Some caregivers also forget to help with the teeth brushing regiment, which seems less urgent than reminding the patient to take their prescription medications on time. Once again, this must be part of the picture of overall health.

Here is why…

Whether you are a caregiver, teacher or parent of a child who has issues with hitting, biting, punching, pulling hair or kicking when they get angry or stressed, this is a tricky situation. Many parents and caregivers worry that their child will develop a tendency to become a bully or be aggressive to other children, but often if they are given the right instructions and proper re-direction, this may not be the case.

Little kids, particularly preschool aged children or toddlers, do not have the maturity to handle stress, thereby acting on impulse. Some parents think the only way to handle a child such as this is through physical punishment, such as delivering spankings, hand slaps or other consequences. However, this has the opposite effect and can actually be confusing for a child. Telling a child not to hit and then hitting the child – even with a spanking – is not sending the right message.

However, if gentle discipline does not seem to get the message through to the child, it can be frustrating for a caregiver and also might lead to future actions in an aggressive child. What can be done as an alternative to deal with aggressive behavior in children?
