Safe Aging at Home - Homewatch Connect - Todd Houghton

6/13/2024
https://gotohealthmedia.com/safe-aging-at-home-homewatch-connect-todd-houghton/ Nearly 40% of adults over age 60 report feeling lonely. Did you know that loneliness and depression can be the leading factor in cognitive decline including dementia? Thankfully, technology is playing a big role in seniors lives by letting them live independently and safely at home. As baby boomers transition into their golden years, the demand for senior care technology that connects parents and children is skyrocketing. Now, more than ever, many seniors desire to continue living at home. In fact, if given the choice, 77% of adults over 50 would prefer to age in place. However, many of the adult children of these seniors, who play a crucial role in this journey, are concerned about safety and socialization. Now, there is new care technology available that allows seniors to fulfill these wishes, supporting both adult children and seniors by virtually connecting them with caregivers, family and friends.

Why You Should Eat Wild Caught Seafood According to Roxana Ehsani RD

5/23/2024
Download two amazing, quick and delicious recipes here: https://gotohealthmedia.com/wild-caught-seafood-health-benefits-and-sustainable-eating-roxana-ehsani-ms-rd/ Fish and seafood are excellent lean protein sources without any of the saturated fats of meat. Introducing more seafood into your diet may yield numerous health and nutrition benefits. Seafood is also better than meat as it lowers the risks of heart disease, stroke, and several cancers associated with consuming meat. For seafood lovers, it can be hard to know which fish to eat because 90% of global marine fish stocks are now fully exploited or overfished. So what does it mean to eat seafood that is both wild and sustainable? How can you know if you are buying fish that is sustainable. Roxana Ehsani, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN, is a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Board-Certified Specialist in Sports Dietetics and a National Media Spokesperson. Roxana previously served as a National Media Spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, spokesperson and on-air talent for Giant Food supermarkets, Monumental Sports Network, DOLE and the American Heart Association.

Mental Health Awareness Reducing Stigma Seeking Support

5/16/2024
While the topic of mental health has become less taboo in recent years, many still struggle to talk about it or seek out help. Data from the National Institute of Mental Health revealed that less than half of adults with mental illnesses (only 47%) received mental health services in 2021. Words matter, and one of the best ways to reduce the stigma around mental health is to talk about it openly, with inclusive language, and encourage others to do the same. Thursday, May 16 is Mental Health Action Day, and it encourages and empowers people to take action for themselves, their loved ones, and their community. Dr. Polo discusses the importance of remembering that the mind and body are connected. The poor condition of one can lead to the poor condition of the other. He reminds us that mental illness is not a stigma, but rather a condition that needs to be talked about, managed, and healed, just the way we handle any other health condition. Mental issues are a part of life, and the best way to deal with them is seeking professional help, often beginning with your personal or family doctor.

World's First Wearable Arm Compression Massager for Pain Relief

2/1/2023
https://armcompression.com Millions of individuals suffer from poor arm circulation which can result in significant arm pain, in shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers and associated muscles and ligaments. This includes those with health conditions such as arthritis and joint pain, cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, diabetes, hypertension, Raynaud’s Disease, and repetitive strain injury. Numerous products are on the market such as squeeze balls, compression sleeves, and constriction bands, but none of them increase circulation and relieve arm pain. Other options require medical appointments or electricity, both of which tie the individual down to a place and time. Tej Singh, MD MBA, Stanford trained vascular surgeon and Founder and CEO of Fist Assist Devices, LLC has invented a battery-powered arm compression wearable that provides intermittent focused massage of various parts of the arm to increase arm circulation and reduce arm pain. This is the world’s first wearable hands-free battery-powered arm massager that provides pain relief and improved circulation on-the-go. This device is safe and FDA 510(k) cleared and is now on sale for a recommended price of $99 in the United States.

Humanizing Healthcare with Equity - Theresa Demeter MHA - Tegria

1/25/2023
Tegria (tegria.com) is a nationwide and international consulting firm that works with health organizations, non-profits, and employers to identify improvements in processes and teamwork, and help their patients, audiences, and workers benefit from truly humanized healthcare. Humanized healthcare means that each patient is recognized and treated as the individual each truly is, without cookie cutter approaches, biases imposed by members of the care team or even technology (as you will learn in this Show), or inefficiencies or delays due to cross-discipline lack of teamwork. We learn about barriers to care, which can include appointment and hold times that don’t work for patients in need, geographic or time inaccessibility due to distance, understaffing, or inadequate facilities, and biases that can easily have a negative effect on care due to age, ethnicity, gender, race, or communication ability. We learn too about Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) – how where we live, our socio-economic background, our degree of education, and cultural and physical environments determine up to 80% of our health outcomes, despite the level of care provided. You’ll learn a lot about solutions in this presentation with Theresa Demeter, MHA, the Managing Director of Clinical Solutions, for Tegria, a powerful and successful convergence of health consulting organizations who have deep expertise in analysis, process improvement and technology.
