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.

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.

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.

Free National Rx Card review

May 17, 2012

I like the ideas that Free National Rx Card mentioned on their website. They say that you can “save up to 75% off your prescription medications.”

It is good that they are seeking to help the citizens who cannot afford to pay for their prescriptions. Free National Rx Card is succeeding where others have failed. We have tried to reduce prescription costs via health insurance plans, HMOs, PPOs, pharmaceutical companies, legislation, employer plans, etc. Our best efforts still yield the cost of prescription drugs steadily increasing. These statistics are sitting on my desk right now.

Networking the citizens in need, with the pharmacies willing to help, and with the middle man (Free National Rx Card) is predicted to be one of the best solutions for the rising cost of prescription medicines.

Field Trip

November 22, 2011

Thanks to Darwin Barton

Today is going to be a fun day! My son’s class is going on a field tripto the local aquarium and I am taking the day off from work to go with him. I took him to the bus stop this morning with him talking all the way about how excited he was to see the big fish. Once I got him on the bus I returned home to get ready. The fact that I am going with him is a surprise—I can’t wait to see the look on his face when I arrive at school in a few hours. AS excited as he is, I may be even more so. It’s a real gift to be able to experience new things with your children. Nothing is more enjoyable for me than seeing his face as he makes new discoveries. I’m going to run a few errands on my way to his school and then we will be off on our adventure. All I have let to do is set my ADT Home Security System on my way out the door and the adventure starts!

Slipping The Nutcracker into our family’s packed holiday schedule

November 21, 2011

Guest post written by Glinda Roper

One sure thing that I can count on is our family doing all kinds of different things to celebrate the holiday season. With my family, it’s seemed like more is always more. We’re gluttons for all kinds of holiday activities and anyone who looks at our family calendar wouldn’t’ doubt that. But I thought that this year I would try and see if we could go and see The Nutcracker together. It’s something that I’ve wanted to do the past couple of Christmases, but we just didn’t get around to it.

I made it a priority this year so a few weeks ago I went online to go ahead and buy tickets for it. While I was looking online for some discounted ones, I saw information on miracle ear and after I looked through it some I decided to go and get fitted with some hearing aids.

I did find some good discounted tickets for our local Nutcracker ballet and I’m really looking forward to going and see it. It’s been way too long since I’ve seen it performed!

Medication Errors

September 29, 2011

I am a Chronic Care Coordinator and partner with Primary Care Providers in chronic care management. Our patients have multiple chronic medical conditions. This care team provides care for patients ranging in age from 18- 75. We facilitate transitions of care between departments and external providers. Patient education is promoted for self care management. Care Coordinators review charts on patients who recently were discharged from hospital and who are in need of a telephonic hospital outreach. This outreach call helps the patient coordinate a medication care plan. A review of their medications upon discharge is verified and the medications they were instructed to stop. However, what we often find is that patients have not been given the correct names of medications or the patient gave the medical staff the correct name but the wrong time frame they have been taking the medication. Frequently the patients have failed to mention over the counter herbal medications that interfere with the reaction for many drugs. Patient education regarding their medications should cover questions as to purpose, dose, and administration time. Pending the outcome of the review we may find different compliance’s that may hinder them taking their medications with factors such as vision, education and finances. A referral to a home care service visit by a RN or an additional office visit for further education regarding medication management, screening for cognitive ability and depression, greatly increases prescription effectiveness.

New baby

September 13, 2011

Content by Donny Vinson

I am now the proud mother of a beautiful baby girl. She is the most precious thing I have ever held in my entire life. Sometimes I find myself watching her sleep and thinking how peaceful she looks. When she first came, I didn’t know what I was going to do. There was no way I could afford a baby. I was starting to feel my debt downing me before I had a baby. What was I going to do with an added person? After many sleepless nights, I started thinking of anything and everything I could do. I needed to save money in every place I could. I learned how to coupon and save on groceries. I would also be able to save on diapers and formula with coupons. I found lower New york energy rates. I even cut back on my television channel package. I honestly feel that I have a good grip on my saving and spending and I am going to be able to provide a wonderful home for my little one. Life is good!

Rosetta Translation

September 8, 2011

Frequently our work requires legal translation services. Our work may involve a company outside of the USA, a division of a company outside of the country, and/or contract work with a non-English speaking person. In these situations, we may turn to legal translation companies. We search for those companies said to have highly accredited legal translators. Our company consists of primarily healthcare informaticists and secretaries. Thus, we need to outsource our legal translation work. We prefer to use companies that maintain legal professions, legal proofreaders, and legal translators. It is good to have general proofreaders and translators available. However, the expert legal proofreaders and translators provide a higher standard of service. It is best to start with the legal experts than to have to modify work done by the non-legal experts. The legal experts are not all lawyers.

Sometimes we need an accurate interpretation of a document written in a foreign language. Many of these documents are court records. No one wants to have a misinterpretation of such important documents.

There are two things people should ask about when deciding on a legal translation agency. They are the ISO 9001:2008 certification as well as the DIN EN 15038 norm. Few agencies have these two items.
