We are not anti-facility. We just know that most seniors want to stay in their homes for as long as possible. Many times this can be until they pass away. We also know that moving a senior to a facility is usually the final move and the most difficult one because everything changes–their surroundings, their neighbors, their church house and they have to leave many precious memories behind. It’s got to be the toughest move we ever make in life. That’s why we do what we do.


Team approach. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in blood vessel and brain conditions (cerebrovascular neurologists), blood vessel conditions and imaging (endovascular surgical neuroradiologists), blood vessel conditions and brain surgery (vascular neurosurgeons), physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatrists), emergency medicine and other areas work together to promptly diagnose and treat people who have had strokes, and to prevent strokes in people who are at risk of strokes.
These documents have been provided to the American Heart Association by the below hospitals as examples of stroke best practices.  These documents are available only to give you an idea of how some hospitals might use discharge stroke best practices. By including this document on its Web site, the American Heart Association does not represent that these documents are complete, accurate or efficacious, or that it follows all of the American Heart Association guidelines for secondary and primary prevention of cardiovascular events or stroke. Hospitals should design their own stroke best practices based on their own procedures and professional experience.

All hospitals in the study participated in the GWTG program, and thus "it cannot be discerned whether GWTG-Stroke participation is necessary to meet high level process adherence," the authors noted. Residual measured and unmeasured confounding may have influenced the multivariable analyses, and it wasn't possible to ascertain whether length of time as a PSC-certified center affected care.
Removing the clot with a stent retriever. Doctors may use a catheter to maneuver a device into the blocked blood vessel in your brain and trap and remove the clot. This procedure is particularly beneficial for people with large clots that can't be completely dissolved with tPA, though this procedure is often performed in combination with intravenous tPA.

One of the major causes of elderly falls is hyponatremia, an electrolyte disturbance when the level of sodium in a person's serum drops below 135 mEq/L. Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte disorder encountered in the elderly patient population. Studies have shown that older patients are more prone to hyponatremia as a result of multiple factors including physiologic changes associated with aging such as decreases in glomerular filtration rate, a tendency for defective sodium conservation, and increased vasopressin activity. Mild hyponatremia ups the risk of fracture in elderly patients because hyponatremia has been shown to cause subtle neurologic impairment that affects gait and attention, similar to that of moderate alcohol intake.[47]
"I almost can't express the joy knowing each and every one of you brings me daily. I am overwhelmed with love and gratitude by your acts of kindness and love, not only for my sweet papa, but for all the precious souls you treat with such dignity. You are all truly an answer to prayer .. And I will always hold everyone there in my heart ... Long after that sweet man leaves us. I love you!"

That’s why it’s important to treat the underlying causes of stroke, including heart disease, high blood pressure, atrial fibrillation (fast, irregular heartbeat), high cholesterol, and diabetes. Your doctor may give you medications or tell you to change your diet, exercise, or adopt other healthy lifestyle habits. Surgery may also be helpful in some cases.
For medical help such as changing dressings, providing post-surgical rehabilitation, overseeing medications, aiding with physical therapy, or helping with mobility devices, you'll want home health care provided by caregiver who's gone through training and is being supervised by a nurse. (Keep in mind that licensing and certification requirements vary by state; you'll want to ask lots of questions about your caregiver's qualifications.)

The GWTG-Stroke program is a voluntary program created by the American Heart Association and made available to all hospitals in the U.S. in 2003. To receive a PAA from the program, participating hospitals must meet each of seven individual performances measures -- such as prescription of anti-thrombotic medication within 48 hours of admission -- in 85% of hospitalizations for at least 1 year.

Your doctor will check your blood pressure and use a stethoscope to listen to your heart and to listen for a whooshing sound (bruit) over your neck (carotid) arteries, which may indicate atherosclerosis. Your doctor may also use an ophthalmoscope to check for signs of tiny cholesterol crystals or clots in the blood vessels at the back of your eyes.

Aged care in Australia is designed to make sure that every Australian can contribute as much as possible toward their cost of care, depending on their individual income and assets.[24] That means that residents pay only what they can afford, and the Commonwealth government pays what they cannot. An Australian statutory authority, the Productivity Commission, conducted a review of aged care commencing in 2010 and reporting in 2011. The review concluded that approximately 80% of care for older Australians is informal care provided by family, friends and neighbours. Around a million people received government-subsidised aged care services, most of these receiving low-level community care support, with 160 000 people in permanent residential care. Expenditure on aged care by all governments in 2009-10 was approximately $11 billion.[25]
Intravenous injection of tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). This injection of recombinant tissue plasminogen activator (tPA), also called alteplase, is considered the gold standard treatment for ischemic stroke. An injection of tPA is usually given through a vein in the arm. This potent clot-busting drug ideally is given within three hours. In some instances, tPA can be given up to 4.5 hours after stroke symptoms begin.

Blood tests. You may have several blood tests, which tell your care team how fast your blood clots, whether your blood sugar is abnormally high or low, whether critical blood chemicals are out of balance, or whether you may have an infection. Managing your blood's clotting time and levels of sugar and other key chemicals will be part of your stroke care.
They are giving my son money from his ssa and he has nothing to show for it everytime he gets money he uses it for drugs. he goes looking for receipts and says hes spending it for his daughters but if he buys anything he usually sells it or loses it becuz he gets so wasted on drugs and he does not remember cuz hes mental supposedly but he sure remembers where to get his drugs and where to go til they burn him and take his money.  Then he can go back to around the clock and tell them another lie and do it til hes dead.  But that is not of their concern.  Good luck
