What If: Family Funeral

amt arthrisits hands

“My parents had been married for over 60 years when my father passed away.    He had been my mother’s caretaker, as she suffered through most of her golden years with Rheumatoid Arthritis.  Naturally, I was in a panic; I just didn’t know how I was going to get my mother to the funeral parlor for the wake and then to services the next day.  I explained to the funeral director that my mother was almost bed-ridden and was unable to travel by limousine, but the funeral director assured me that he would take care of her transportation.  The afternoon of the wake an ABBA Medical Transportation van was at our door to escort my mother to the funeral home.  Each step of the way, from the wake, to the church, to the graveside services, and finally to the repast, ABBA Medical Transportation was there for our family.  The driver was courteous, respectful of our grief and supportive of Mother’s feelings through the entire experience.  He was attentive to her every need and was a good listener as she reminisced about the love of her life, my dad.   Thank you, ABBA, for going above and beyond!”

Shoveling with Care…

 

amt snow shovelingIt is snow season again and time to shovel.  Snow is one of those dirty four letter words that begin with S.  The best way to avoid injury is to not shovel the snow at all.  Get someone else to do it – like the kids, your dog, your spouse or significant other.  However, we all know that doesn’t happen.  So off we go to shovel out the car, the driveway, the walkway and, of course, the elderly couple who lives next door.  The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons offers these snow-shoveling injury prevention tips, which are the next best thing to a brand new snow blower:

 

·         Dress appropriately by wearing slip-resistant shoes and light, layered, water-repellent clothing that provides both ventilation and insulation.

·         Warm up with some light stretch exercises.

·         Push snow. And if you have to lift snow, use the stronger leg muscles for support, not the back.

·         Do not throw the snow over your shoulder or to the side because the twisting motion may stress your back.

·         Shovel early and often. The amount of snow that has to be removed is less and keeps it from freezing or partially melting and becoming harder to remove.

·         Use a proper snow shovel with a pole that is longer, adjustable, and curved to decrease the amount of bending needed to lower your risk of muscle injury. More user-friendly shovels are typically made of lighter materials such as plastic or lightweight aluminum.

·         Pace yourself and take frequent breaks. Don’t shovel more than 30 to 60 minutes, just like you would during a regular exercise session.

Preventing Falls in the Elderly- quick facts:

  • The risk of falling increases with age and is greater for women than for men.
  • Two-thirds of those who experience a fall will fall again within six months.
  • A decrease in bone density contributes to falls and resultant injuries.
  • Failure to exercise regularly results in poor muscle tone, decreased strength, and loss of bone mass and flexibility.
  • At least one-third of all falls in the elderly involve environmental hazards in the home.
