What to Look For in Assisted Living

October 30, 2015

When people start thinking about assisted living, one of the first actions they take is to tour the property. When doing so, there are a few things to keep in mind. If a person intends to live on the property, they should know that they are getting the best, especially considering the costs of living.

Communities for seniors range in quality, so here are some things to consider during a tour. First, overall cleanliness is important. The first thing people look at are furnishings. However, examining the baseboards and windows can give you an idea about just how clean the facility is kept. Second, it’s best to visit while activities are ongoing. A good community keeps residents active, and staff should not only participate, but enjoy interacting within that community.

Which is why staff friendliness is a big quality to watch out for. Living in an assisted living community can either be a blessing or a curse, depending on how staff view the residents. It’s best to ensure that the staff enjoys the work they do. By following these few simple tips, you’ll be well your way to finding the right community for you.

Giving and Withholding Our “Gifts”

Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.” NIV

How many times have you heard this part of Luke 6:38 used to encourage Christians to give generous tithes and offerings to the Lord? Once? Twice? A dozen times?! I know I’ve heard it many times, and I have even printed it in a Sunday worship folder as an offering thought. Indeed, many who practice generous giving to the Lord have testified to the truth of this verse.

As I recently re-read verse 38 within the context of Luke 6:27-38, I suddenly realized something. This verse is not just saying that if we give generously to God we are going to receive His blessings in return. And this verse is certainly not saying that if we give generously to God we will become materially rich, even though there are those out there that teach that misleading thought in their “theology of prosperity”. I would hazard a guess that Jesus may not have been talking about giving material wealth at all when He said the words in Luke 6:38. In fact, Jesus may well be talking here about “doing unto others, as we would have them do unto us” rather than about giving generous tithes and offerings. Given the even broader context of the references listed at the end of this article, I believe that Jesus is talking about “giving” love, blessings, prayer, generosity, goodness, forgiveness, and mercy in abundance to all–even to one’s enemies! Jesus is also talking about “withholding” violence, evil, judgment, and condemnation from all. In Micah 6:8, we are reminded that the only things God really requires of us is justice, mercy, and humbleness–not sacrificial offerings!

Josh Billings once said, “There is no revenge so complete as forgiveness.” Romans 12:20 talks about doing good to our enemy, and “in doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Although in our eyes this may seem a cruel thing to do to someone, I once heard it explained that in Bible times this was a very generous and loving act. In a time when there was no electricity and no matches, you were really hurting if your fire went out. This was your only source of warmth and cooking. A person in this plight could only go to his neighbor and hope the neighbor would take pity on him by heaping a share of his live coals into the container carried on the needy one’s head!

We already know how to give good gifts to our friends and family members on Christmas, birthdays and other special occasions. However, the year around we don’t want to forget to give to all the gifts that really count–the gifts that God gives so freely to us (and that He wants back from us!)–love, blessing, generosity, goodness, forgiveness, kindness, mercy, justice, and so on. And we certainly don’t want to forget to withhold from all the negative “gifts” of judgment, condemnation, revenge, wrath, evil, and cursing! For, as the rest of Luke 6:38 says, “…with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (NIV)

What does God’s Word, the Bible, say about this?

Proverbs 3:27 “Do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act.” NIV

Micah 6:8 “He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord
require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”

Luke 6:36-38a “‘Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you.'” NIV

Acts 20:35b “…we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” NIV

Romans 12:19a20-21 “Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God’s wrath. On the contrary: ‘If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.’ Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” NIV

Now read the following Bible passages in your favorite version of the Bible:

Proverbs 3:27-28
Micah 6:6-8
Matthew 7:9-12
Luke 6:27-38
Acts 20:33-35
Romans 12:14-21
James 3:134:12

How Your Business Can Get Involved With A Charity

October 7, 2015

You feel a push to have your business have any kind of effect, leave a legacy or change the world. You’ve released the thought of giving endlessly your belonging and moving to a faraway spot to serve the down and out.

Your thought now is to associate with a charity in the place where your business operates; for example, if you operate in Phoenix, you’re probably looking into an Arizona community foundation. In case you’re not certain where to start, here’s a guide for getting included in a philanthropy.

Pick your Charity

Discover and grasp a philanthropy that implies something to your business. The relationship should bode well as far as one of these territories.

  • Items and administrations. Given items and star bono administrations can specifically advantage customers of a magnanimous association. They can likewise be sold to raise stores for the philanthropy.
  • Target gatherings of people. Your clients and business prospects are keen on the philanthropy’s central goal or make the most of its unique occasions, for example, its formal lunch meetings or 5K races.
  • Individual interests. You are roused by a reason or amped up for exercises advanced by a philanthropy.

Selecting a charity as a result of individual interest may appear to be unimportant. Yet, the reasons that mean the most to you regularly serve as the best stage for pulling in and drawing in individuals.

Natural associations between your business and charity are critical, yet they are less noteworthy than the bundling and advancement of your organization’s inclusion. Advance your business’ strategies for getting consideration and taking care of issues.

Emergency Support Needed

October 20, 2014

Public Service Announcement

We are highlighting one very caring young lady. She needs our support. Her goal is to obtain adequate housing and food for her and the family. The pleasant family consists of her sister, two brothers, daughter, and mother. This family is struggling for the past two month to find housing that is large enough to comfortably accommodate everyone. They are also striving in the face of difficulties to keep the school-age children in one steady school. A constant set of classmates, teachers, and routine would improve the lives of this family deeply. This would also prevent disarray and disorganization. The highlighted youth is struggling to look for employment and care for her pre-school age daughter. She has a brilliant idea of studying online. Her studies brought curiosity to our educational services. She is a very motivated and active student. The skills she is gaining leads closer to the goal of obtaining adequate housing. Yet, she and her family are in great need of money to quickly get out of the tight grip of an over-cramped residence. There are six persons living in 450 square feet of space. Please give generously to the educational advancement of this young lady as she seeks to improve the living situation of her struggling family.

Evidence-Based Healthcare, Medicine, Practice (comment)

July 23, 2014

Healthcare Informatics Resources. (2011, December 14). Evidence-Based Healthcare, Medicine, Practice {Blog post}. Retrieved from http://healthcare-informatics-resources.com/2011/12/14 Evidence-Based Healthcare, Medicine, Practice.

My comment regarding Evidence-Based Healthcare, Medicine, Practice is I agree with the evidence based healthcare system. This system allows healthcare professions to make decisions based on evidence and then deliver services best for the patients outcome. The patient, his doctor and the external clinical evidence help with the individuals healthcare. The article speaks about evidence based procedures being used to diagnosis patients.

I have learned over the years, when going on doctor appointments, if your going to see a doctor for symptoms you may be experiencing, your doctor goes into another room and research the symptoms online. I have saw my doctor in action. A person would think that a doctor would already know this information. I guess the saying practicing medicine is a true statement. The doctors are constantly learning and exploring information themselves. I agree with the article when it states that evidence-based medicine is recognition of clinical practices, just like science. It’s up to the doctors and nurses to participate with the research and technology process in order for the evidence-based healthcare system to help make decisions about the patient.

Impact of Technology on the Parent and the Learner

RE: Healthcare Informatics Resources (2012 June 18) Impact of Technology on the Teacher and the Learner [Blog Post] Retrieved from http://healthcare-informatics-resources.com/2012/06/18/impact-of-technology-on-the-teacher-and-the-learner/

The impact of technology on the parent and the student is very great. Parents should not be afraid to embrace online learning and computer usage. When parents support their children in the use of online education and tutoring, the achievement levels go way up! A request is made of leaders and parents to financially support this goal. Please spread the word to others.
