I bought a portable floor pedal exerciser that I can try to use to exercise my legs or arms but my legs shake when I use it. I used a cane for about 2 months but had to get a 4-wheel rollator walker that I now have to use all the time. We contacted a home healthcare organization 3 weeks ago and they put us on a waiting list and we haven't heard back. We met with Home Instead tonight and will hopefully start getting some help this Friday three days a week. I need help showering, dressing, and fixing food at this point. This should take some of the pressure off Kim and Jean and will help me also.


Eventually I will need help 7 days a week and around the clock, but we're not there yet and hopefully won't be for a while yet. I may be in a wheelchair in the next few months instead of a walker if my rapid progression continues. We just ordered a vibration plate exerciser that I can use upstairs that may help me preserve my remaining limb strength a while longer. Also plan to start walking with my walker around the parking lot next week when home health is here. I need to get in shape for the 2 mile ALS walk on June 6! We sent my completed Long Term Care claim form in this past Monday. Once approved and after a 12-week elimination period we will have a daily benefit to offset the costs of some of my care needs.

Everyone knows that humans_ overall population on planet Earth is increasing at a very fast pace. It is affecting not just the human species but also other animals, atmosphere, ecosystems and natural resources across the planet. With the increase of these numbers, the older population is also estimated to soar new heights in near future. According to a report by the United Nations, by 2030 the number of old age people is going to increase by 56% in the world aging above 60 years. The percentage of people aged 80 years and above is increasing at a much faster rate than this. This means our average life expectancy is increasing. The increase in fertility and decreased mortality are leading to the greater ratio of our aged counterparts. Mostly the developed nations have more aging persons. The pace in developing nations too is no less now.


Also, this growth of the aging community is seen more in urban areas than in rural because of the lack of many facilities in rural parts. Due to the advancement in technology and medicine, our lifespan has increased however that does not conclude that we are very well equipped with all the facilities to take care of our aged population. More and more countries are coming up with different schemes for the sustainability for this age group in terms of pension schemes and extra working years for being socially active and providing many other benefits. The well being of this age group depends more on the senior home health care than any other central or state level benefits.


According to the World Health Organization (WHO), there is no need for heavy health and pension budgets to take care of this shifting population structure. The need of the hour is health care and technology-related changes which are enough to improve their independence and better condition in the last phase of their life. Mostly at this juncture of life people suffer due to old age disability and high dependency on others. All over the world the healthy years of old people are cut short due to some kind of disability. Therefore consideration of the health of the elderly population in their lateral years is most important for both the family as well as the policymakers at the state or country level. Our present should be well prepared for this grey future with the remedies and plans for all the elderly disorders.

We are a Joint Commission Accredited, Medicare/Medicaid certified agency.

A nurse is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.


Physical, Occupational, and/or Speech therapy may be ordered by your physician to improve your ability to function safely in your home. An Occupational or Physical therapist teaches you exercised to help you gain strength and balance as well as improve your mobility.

Sometimes patients have trouble managing the stress of a chronic illness or other life-changing medical event. A social worker can meet with you and your family/caregiver to help you with resources in the community for assistance, including financial resources that could help you manage at home. If the need arises that you just cannot stay in your home, a social worker can help you find other living arrangements where you can be safe and comfortable and receive excellent support and care.

Chronic back pain could be the result of a hectic work schedule, poor posture, simple muscle strain, increased muscle contraction, stretched muscles, excessive usage of muscles, and strain on the spine. Whatever be the reason, appropriate measures should be taken to achieve back pain relief. Rehabilitation services provided at pain management centers are a great option for treating chronic back pain. Intensive rehabilitation programs are carefully planned and provided for people with chronic back pain. The treatment begins with a detailed physical and psychological evaluation. A study of the patient_s medical and psychosocial histories and musculoskeletal examinations are carried out by the rehabilitation specialists.


Once an accurate diagnosis is made, a treatment plan is developed. Physical therapy rehabilitation is important in back pain management. Based on the condition of the patient, physical therapists utilize a variety of physical therapy modalities and therapeutic exercise programs for providing back pain treatment. Specialty centers offer rehabilitation for post-surgical patients, which enables patients to return to the highest level of function, as quickly and safely as possible. Maintaining a balanced and healthy life is essential to minimize the risk of chronic back pain. Physical therapy exercises are often administered by specialists, which are effective to mobilize and strengthen the muscles and joints, reduce pain, and increase flexibility and function. During the initial stages of treatment, the pain management specialists use different kinds of equipment to relieve the stress and pain.

A new study released March 11, 2014 at a meeting of the American Medical Rehabilitation Providers Association (AMRPA) demonstrates that patients treated in inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units had better long-term clinical outcomes than those treated in nursing homes. The study is the most comprehensive national analysis to date that examines the long-term outcomes of clinically similar patient populations treated in inpatient rehabilitation hospitals/units versus nursing homes. "This study demonstrates that clinically complex patients treated in inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units achieve better outcomes than similar patients treated in skilled nursing facilities," said Kathleen Yosko, President and CEO of Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital in Wheaton, Illinois. Currently, there are proposals being considered by Congress to cut or freeze Medicare coverage for inpatient rehabilitation hospitals and units as a way to pay for reform of the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule.
