Has Your Parent or Grandparent Recently Started Using a Cane?

Decorative canes

In the end the conversation was easier than you expected.
You went to visit your mother for the weekend not only to spend time with her, but to also make sure that you had a conversation with her about needing to start the use of a cane for walking. To your surprise, when your mother came out to greet you when you arrived in her driveway, she was walking with a small carbon fiber cane. Jumping for joy on the inside, you simply gave her a hug, and kiss on the cheek, and acted as if nothing were out of the ordinary.
You could easily identify the can that she was using because it was, in fact, one of the three canes that you had in the back of your trunk. After visiting with a pharmaceutical representative at your local grocery store, you had actually purchased some canes to bring to your mom. The baria Continue reading

Hope for Veterans Who Dream of Owning Their Own Home VA Home Loans

Texas veteran loan program

Coming back from war after serving your country is more difficult than many realise. The impact of serving in the military is often significant and while most veterans are proud of their service, many struggle to adapt to the realities of leaving that life behind. With more than 1.5 million veterans in the state of Texas alone, the challenge is growing. Sadly with the emotional and psychological challenges, there often come financial challenges too, which can make owning their own home an impossibility for many veterans. Few realise, though, that there are systems in place to help veterans not only to adapt to leaving the military, but also open the door to home ownership.

The specialist Veterans Association (VA) home Continue reading

What is Convenient Care and What are its Benefits?

Abdominal pain causes

Convenient care is a new model of healthcare, that offers both urgent care and emergency room services at the same location. This hybrid model of healthcare combines urgent care and clinics with emergency services, so patients can be routed to the appropriate treatment. For conditions like headaches and stomach aches, which are urgent but not life threatening, walk in urgent care clinics provide medical care without a long wait for an appointment. Having an emergency room at the same location makes it easier to treat life threatening conditions like heart attacks, strokes and serious injuries when necessary.

If You Don’t Have an Emergency, Go to the Urgent Care Facility Near You

What to do about abdominal pain

Perhaps you have had minor illnesses in the past and you do not have a regular primary care physician. Your first thought, if you have one again, might be to go to your local hospital and enter the emergency room. You would get seen at some point, though since your situation is not an emergency, you would likely not be seen anytime soon.

After you did get seen and treated in the emergency room, you would most likely be sent home, with a diagnosis and possibly with some medication. Sometime later, you would receive a bill almost 10 times higher than if you had gone to an urgent care clinic. A case that could have been treated at an urgent care facility but was treated at an emergency room would cost an average of roughly $2,039. If that same case had been treated at an urgent care clinic, it Continue reading
