#410168 Police Warn Of Lowe's Coupon Scam On Facebook

Posted by Bon on Yesterday, 09:15 PM

Every year around Mother's Day this starts. I can't believe how many people fall for it.
Lowes, Wal-Mart, Home Depot, & any major box store do not give out coupons of that size for any "holiday" - mother's day, father's day, grandparents day.

I hope they are never allowed to have any type of animal again unless it is fixed.

#409175 Pennsylvania's CARE Act Takes Effect April 20th.

Posted by Bon on 20 April 2017 - 12:44 PM

The CARE Act helps family caregivers when their loved ones go into the hospital and as they transition home. The law was unanimously approved by state General Assembly and signed by Governor Wolf in April 2016.

Developed with input from the Hospital and Healthsystem Association of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Nurse’s Association, the CARE Act requires hospitals to:
Provide an opportunity to designate a family caregiver.

Inform caregivers when loved ones are being discharged to another facility or
back home.

Provide caregivers with an explanation and demonstration of the medical tasks
that the caregiver will perform at home.

“AARP led the fight for the CARE Act in Pennsylvania to help family caregivers when their loved ones go into the hospital — and when they return home,” said AARP State Director Bill Johnston-Walsh.

“This common sense law delivers essential support to caregivers who are working tirelessly caring for aging parents, spouses, and other loved ones, so those older adults can continue living independently, with dignity, at home—where they want to be.”

AARP research shows the CARE Act was needed because:

Most care recipients (69%) did not have a home visit by a health care
professional after discharge from the hospital.

Almost half (46%) of family caregivers perform medical or nursing tasks for
their loved ones with multiple chronic physical and cognitive conditions.

Three out of four (78%) who provide these medical or nursing tasks manage
medications, including administering intravenous fluids and injections.

Most family caregivers report that they received little or no training to
perform these tasks.

Johnston-Walsh said Pennsylvania’s CARE Act will also help control health care expenses and reduce hospital readmissions by ensuring family caregivers receive the information and training they need to help safely care for their loved ones at home.

“Caregiving is a big responsibility, and caregivers need all the help they can get,” said Johnston-Walsh.

Currently, 60 percent of caregivers juggle caregiving responsibilities with the demands of a full-time job, and the average caregiver will devote at least 20 hours a week to helping loved ones.

“The bottom line is caregiving is now a common family dynamic – if you’re not a caregiver now, chances are you were one in the past, or will become one in the future,” said Johnston-Walsh. ”While it can be a difficult and emotionally taxing job, caregivers consider it a labor of love and simply wouldn’t have it any other way.”

“Thankfully, Pennsylvania’s new CARE Act will make that job a little easier.”

It felt soft.   Should have went to store and bought a plunger probably less then $10.  New toilet probably at least $80 or more depending on type.


Gotta wonder if she had insurance.

I didn't even know the trial was going on. I don't watch tv or the news. I read all my news on line & since I've been sick with bronchitis, I haven't even done that.

Not reading/watching the news really brings your stress levels down!! Less headaches, neck aches, better outlook on the day!!

ps... there shouldn't of been a trial, he was guilty as sin!!

Are you kidding?? My Favorite Nurse can grill too! Wow!

She can grill very well!! Her dad loves her T-bones on the grill!!
She is a pretty darn good cook, but doesn't always cook after work. She is tired! If I have the stuff ready, she will cook it. That's one of the reasons we don't eat till 6-7-8pm at night.
