ARTICLE:

"January is often the time when family members reassess the amount and quality of care they can give, versus what Grandma or Grandpa needs," says Chris Comeaux, Four Seasons Compassion for Life. As the holiday season draws to a close and families return home to resume work and school, the days following Christmas are frequently a time when the question of how to cope with an aging loved one's long term illness is no longer a concern for the future.

Each family's situation drives home the increasingly significant question of how individuals in the wider Buncombe County metropolitan statistical area cope with the realities of long term illness and dying.

For individuals like Marie Thompson of Hendersonville, the issue is up close and personal. Her husband, Russell, 83, has multiple sclerosis. A 30 year veteran of General Electric, he is now totally paralyzed on the right with limited ability to walk and stand. The vital man Marie married now depends on an electric wheel chair to move from room to room in their home.

"He can dress himself, I put on his shoes and socks," she says. "He needs so much assistance, he can't do for himself. He would never be able to manage his medicines, fix or get his own food. He's not safe to leave in a place without somebody there. MS is very debilitating."

If Russell falls, she calls the fire department for assistance to help lift him. And getting him in and out of a car into a fold up wheel chair for medical appointments is impossible.

Former nurse, Marie Thompson figures she's better off than most when it comes to navigating the additional complications of her husband's excruciating ruptured disc and surgery, physical therapy, edema, and the aftermath of congestive heart failure.

"I did know what types of options were available, probably more than a lay person would," she says. "For example, medications and how to give them, things like that, I already knew."

Still, when Russell's doctor saw that Marie was having such a difficult time managing, he told the couple he'd like to refer them to hospice. Now, instead of traveling to care providers, the care providers come to their home.

The assistance from hospice was a "tremendous relief," Marie says, as it helps her manage better emotionally, physically, and financially. Instead of Russell remaining at home, the other options would include a long term care facility their insurance wouldn't cover, finding an assisted living place, or divesting themselves of their home and assets.

"People are very kind and they offer to help, but then you don't know if they mean it, or you feel guilty if you call and ask," she says. "That situation is never one I could accept."

Aging Is Factor in WNC Illness:

The quality of life of aging persons who are seriously ill and their care-givers is not a new one in western North Carolina.

"The Thomas' situation is not unlike that of many other families residing in western North Carolina," he says. "In some cases, the mountainous terrain is an impediment to care. With the holidays behind us, family members may have become more aware that the need for change is imminent."

How do families know when it's time to ask for help? Comeaux shares the five common ways families identify their need for assistance.

1. Watch for patterns of decline. "Are things getting worse over time, and how much worse?"

2. Family caregiver limits. "Is the family caregiver able to manage the aspects of care the person who is seriously ill currently needs?"

3. Self-monitoring abilities. "Can the individual manage his or her own medications, pay their bills, and remember to turn off appliances after they prepare meals or perform household tasks?"

4. Everyday quality of life. "An active social life and ability to engage in everyday activities is essential to a person's well-being. If this wanes, then it may be time to step in."

5. Ask for a health needs assessment. "Have you talked with the individual's physician to determine whether it's time to ask for additional help? The severity of limitations will help identify what level of assistance is needed."

Ron Fisher, M.D., Honored for Commitment to the Growth of Hospice and Palliative Care in Western North Carolina

Author: Four Seasons Compassion for Life
Dateline: Sylva, North Carolina (SYLVA, N.C.)  | Thu, 19 Dec 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Respected physician and western North Carolina hospice and palliative care pioneer, Ron Fisher, M.D., will be honored by Four Seasons Compassion for Life, Highlands, peers and colleagues as he retires as medical director of Med-West Health Systems, Sylva, after 27 years of distinguished service.

ARTICLE:

Respected physician and western North Carolina hospice and palliative care pioneer Ron Fisher, M.D., will be honored by Four Seasons Compassion for Life, Highlands, peers and colleagues as he retires as medical director of Med-West Health Systems, Sylva, after 27 years of distinguished service. An informal, drop in reception will be Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, 4:30-7 p.m., at Mountain Trace Nursing Center. An award presentation is slated for 5:30 p.m. in appreciation of Fisher's commitment to quality hospice and palliative care.

Individuals who would like to recognize Fisher's contributions are asked to make a donation in his honor to the Hospice House Foundation, Franklin.

"Throughout his long career, Dr. Fisher has elevated the standard of care for persons with serious illnesses and at end of life through his work and focus in palliative care," says Steve Mills, director of Four Seasons, Highlands.

"He has brought a tremendous passion and compassion to the care of individuals who are dealing with difficult, chronic illnesses," he says.

Inspired service

Fresh out of medical school at the University of Florida, Fisher arrived in Sylva in 1980 to begin his residency at Mountain Area Health Education Center, commonly known as MAHEC. There, he was inspired by then-medical director "Dick" Walton, M.D. to treat the whole patient, not the symptoms.

"Dr. Walton taught me respect for the total care of the patient, rather than focusing on one specific point, and that perspective followed me all through my career, first and foremost," Fisher says.

For about 20 years, he remained in family practice, gradually evolving into geriatric and elder care. By 1989, he increasingly focused on patients who needed long term care. Impressed by the work of Dame Cicely Sanders, known as the "mother of hospice care," Fisher became certified in palliative care as soon as soon as the option became available.

"The work is rewarding: low tech, without a lot of chemistry or instrumentation. It's very personal one-on-one care," he says.

Over the years, his commitment to his patients' care never waned.

"Particularly, I found a place, a kind of calling for end of life care," he recalls. "I began focusing more and more of my attention toward hospice care, which was then a sub-specialty of palliative care."

Eventually, Fisher's practice became fully focused on patients with serious, life limiting illnesses or at end of life.

Legacy of service:

"I really learned and received more from my patients than I ever gave," Fisher says. "I found I was providing a true service in relieving the patient from suffering, that was very rewarding to me as well as the patient."

In the field of hospice and palliative care, it's widely agreed that Dr. Fisher's early and extensive contributions will have long-lasting impact in WNC.

"Dr. Fisher leaves a lasting legacy because of his commitment to his patients and the care he has provided," says Mills.

In terms of a legacy for the future, Fisher looks toward the continuation, growth and expansion of palliative care in WNC.

"There's room for a lot more growth, we've barely scratched the surface of the needs for care. If I leave a legacy, it's my hope to see palliative and hospice care grow," he says. "If I get a little credit for that, I'll take it."

Refocused Priorities:

At 62, Fisher is retiring after facing his own health challenges in the previous year.

"I actually kind-of looked at life from a different perspective as a patient with a serious illness," he says, citing less energy to put into his practice, and increased fatigue.

The recovery has been long, and he's still not back to normal.

"Life is short, and I chose to refocus my priorities a little bit, spend more time with family and grandchildren."

All in all, he's enjoyed 34 years of professional practice, including his former role as medical director at Skyland Care Center. He feels he's done well, but that it's time to "let younger, healthier people take the bull by the horns."

In the future, Fisher plans to fulfill community roles, practicing in Sylva's free Good Samaritan Clinic, and remaining in his part-time position as medical director for the Jackson County Department of Public Health.

To date, Fisher also remains active on the board of directors for the Hospice House Foundation of WNC, Franklin. Currently, he is committed to a capital campaign to match a $1 million grant from North Carolina State Employees' Credit Union by fall 2014. Individuals who would like to recognize Fisher's contributions to palliative care are asked donate in his name to the Hospice House Foundation, Franklin.

The event is Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2014, 4:30-7 p.m., at Mountain Trace Nursing Center, 417 Mountain Trace Road, with the award presentation at 5:30 p.m. To donate to the Hospice House Foundation, Franklin, in Fisher's honor, visit http://hhfwnc.org/ .

Mountain Home Care’s ‘Caregiver Leadership Award’ Honors Everyday Heroes, Dual Roles

Author: Mountain Home Care
Dateline: Arden, North Carolina (ARDEN, N.C.)  | Fri, 29 Nov 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “In celebration of Mountain Home Care's 10th anniversary observance of November's National Family Caregiver Awareness Month, Lana Wilde found it difficult, if not impossible, to choose only one dual role caregiver to receive the company's 'Caregiver Leadership Award.' That's why, in an informal, family-style reception themed 'Caregivers are Everyday Heroes,' the company's owner and founder awarded each caregiver.”



ARTICLE:

In celebration of Mountain Home Care's 10th anniversary observance of November's National Family Caregiver Awareness Month, Lana Wilde found it difficult, if not impossible, to choose only one dual role caregiver to receive the company's "Caregiver Leadership Award."

That's why, in an informal, family-style reception themed "Caregivers are Everyday Heroes," Friday, November 22, from 2-4 p.m., the company's owner and founder awarded each caregiver with a commemorative pin, a warm smile, and a grateful hug.

In 2003, when Wilde launched Mountain Home Care, she, too, was a dual role caregiver, with challenges and sacrifices the commitment entails. Inspired by her example, the "Caregiver Leadership Award" honors care givers as everyday heroes, recognizing excellence in the profession, and drawing attention to the growing challenges of health professionals in dual roles.

Today, Mountain Home Care remains western North Carolina's leading provider of home care and geriatric services.

Dual Role Care Givers of Adult Children:

Certified Nursing Assistant Larry Cottrell and his adult son, Charlie, were among the attendees at the event, held at the Arden Presbyterian Church Fellowship Room.

Cottrell is among the dual role caregivers employed by Mountain Home Care. Together with his wife, Cindy, a teacher, he shares care giving responsibilities for Charlie, now 32, who experienced a traumatic brain injury almost 13 years ago.

At the time, Cottrell was an accountant. The prognosis was grim, and he recalls that he Cindy felt that Charlie "was not given the kind of care a client should have been given."

"There weren't a lot of places he could go to get what he needed, so we were there every day," he says.

Against the odds, Charlie slowly made progress, first blinking to communicate, later working with physical, speech, and occupational therapists. Finally, his family felt they could care for him at home with the help of a professional caregiver.

The Cottrells' decision to care for their son at home is not uncommon. According to the national Family Caregiver Alliance, about one in every seven caregivers, or 14 percent, care for an adult child, for a total of about 52 million persons in the U.S. providing family care to those aged 18 or older.

Cottrell's own experience as his son's parent and caregiver may be at least partly responsible for his choice to change careers. When he lost his accounting job a few years ago, he decided to enter profession of nursing. In fact, he's recently completed his course of study to become a registered nurse, and with board exams in his immediate future.

Nurses, only one segment of the population providing care to others at work and at home, comprise 88,190 members of North Carolina's active labor work force. Statistically, as many as 29,400 to 44,000 nurses may also be dual role caregivers.

Employer Flexibility Increases Care Giver Success:

What is needed so that care givers like Cottrell, with responsibilities at work, home, and on campus, can meet the challenges of dual roles and multiple responsibilities? Ideally, employers would assist parents caring for an adult child at home on a case by case basis, Cottrell says.

"Finding an employer who can split your shift so that the two parents can be at home when they need to be, or being flexible in some way," he says. "That needs to happen. Mountain Home Care does that, and others try."

Mountain Home Care's Wilde agrees.

"Flexible work policies are necessary for nurses and other professional caregivers in dual roles," says Wilde. "Employers who meet this growing need will find it contributes to the individual's success."

Currently, more than one-third to one-half of individuals in the U.S. providing family-based home care are employed outside the home, and those numbers are on the rise. Cottrell speculates that access to adult daycare facilities or telecommuting could help logistically.

Professionals Balance Dual Roles Successfully:

The positive aspects of care-giving professions may be difficult to see for those who are unsuccessful in their attempts to balance dual roles, says Wilde. Thanks to their training, qualified professional care givers may be better equipped to manage the stressors.

Balancing dual care giving roles requires respite care and a solid support system, Cottrell says.

"Getting a break from the situation is important, because care-giving is tiring," Cottrell says. "It has taken a lot of friends and family to make it work."

Test Shown to Reduce Early Cancer Deaths is Now Available to Patients

Author: SignatureCLL
Dateline: Huntington Beach, California (HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.)  | Thu, 14 Nov 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “SignatureCLL today announced that the first laboratory test ever shown in a clinical trial to improve one year survival rates in cancer is now available to patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL). The U.S. cancer physician who invented the test and the British scientist who used it to make discoveries in leukemia will offer the test under the trade name SignatuRx through their own, newly-formed laboratory company.”



ARTICLE:

SignatureCLL today announced that the first laboratory test ever shown in a clinical trial to improve one year survival rates in cancer is now available to patients with chronic lymphocytic leukemia (also called CLL). The U.S. cancer physician who invented the test and the British scientist who used it to make discoveries in leukemia will offer the test under the trade name SignatuRx(TM) through their own, newly-formed laboratory company.

The company's technology, in its generic form, was shown in a 777 patient randomized clinical trial to reduce early cancer deaths among relapsed CLL patients by identifying the most promising personalized chemotherapy treatment for each patient.

In the study, CLL patients were more than twice as likely to die within the first year after an initial treatment relapse if their next chemotherapy drug selections were not guided by the test.

According to test developers, the ground-breaking aspect of this clinical trial is that it is the first time any test was shown in a randomized clinical trial to reduce cancer deaths over any time period. Usually, cancer tests are judged only on the basis of accuracy - how reliably they identify a certain biological condition. Prior to this study, no cancer test was ever asked to prove that its use actually made patients live longer.

A randomized clinical trial is one in which two or more groups of patients are chosen at random to receive different types of treatment.

Principles of the SignatuRx(TM) test were conceived by Larry Weisenthal, M.D., Ph.D., a cancer physician and researcher, while he was working at the National Cancer Institute.

In a prospective, randomized clinical trial that followed CLL patients for over 10 years, Andrew Bosanquet, Ph.D. and colleagues found that CLL patients who relapsed after initial chemotherapy treatment were 2.5 times more likely to die within the first year following relapse if their chemotherapy drugs were selected without test guidance.

Results of the trial, officially designated LRF CLL4, were published in the journals Lancet and Leukemia.

"Survival at one year was significantly better in the personalized chemotherapy arm of the study," said Dr. Bosanquet. "The finding is of particular interest given that no other chemotherapy-only protocol has ever been shown to increase overall survival."

In the SignatuRx(TM) test, patients' own, living cancer cells are exposed to a wide range of different chemotherapy drugs to learn which chemotherapy drug or drug combination most effectively kills each patient's cells. Chemotherapy is then personalized for each patient by focusing on effective drugs and avoiding ineffective drugs. This is a noteworthy break from what Dr. Weisenthal calls "one size fits all" chemotherapy, still used by most cancer physicians, in which drugs are chosen on some rational basis that does not involve directly testing candidate drugs in advance against each patient's own cancer cells.

"The problem with that approach," said Dr. Weisenthal, "is that many drugs are available for treatment of CLL but patient responses to the drugs are hit or miss. Some patients might be helped by one drug and other patients by another but no drug ever helps all patients equally. Without testing, there is no way to know in advance which drugs are best for which patients."

Drs. Weisenthal and Bosanquet state that the SignatuRx(TM) personalized chemotherapy test can be ordered by physicians for their chronic lymphocytic leukemia patients from virtually anywhere in the world. Blood samples are sent to Dr. Weisenthal and Bosanquet's California-based laboratory by overnight courier where the cancer cells are tested for susceptibility to treatment with up to 30 different chemotherapy drugs and drug combinations. Test reports are available in 7 to 10 days.

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is the most common form of leukemia in adults. Approximately 120,000 people in the U.S. are living with CLL and about 4,600 persons will die of the disease this year according to the American Cancer Society.

Detailed information about the clinical trial and about SignatureCLL is available on the company's website: http://www.signaturecll.com/ .

Deer Antler Spray Company Nutronics Labs Encourages Product Comparisons

Author: Nutronics Labs
Dateline: Chicago, Illinois (CHICAGO, Ill.)  | Wed, 06 Nov 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Nutronics Labs, a Natural supplement company, today released a statement encouraging deer antler spray consumers to do thorough product research before buying health supplements online. Nutronics Labs is the leading manufacturer of deer antler spray and boasts the world's strongest supplements available.”



ARTICLE:

Nutronics Labs, a Natural supplement company, today released a statement encouraging deer antler spray consumers to do thorough product research before buying health supplements online. Nutronics Labs is the leading manufacturer of deer antler spray and boasts the world's strongest supplements available - but as the popularity of their products continues to grow, they have seen hundreds of imitation products flood the market recently.

Deer antler spray products contain an ingredient called IGF-1, which in scientific studies, has been shown to have a wide variety of health benefits from anti-aging to muscle gain and recovery.

Nutronics Labs is headed by founder and CEO, Dr. Rick Lentini, who is credited with introducing deer antler spray to the U.S. market over 18 years ago. Dr. Lentini gave the following list of factors that consumers should look for in a quality deer antler spray product:

Brand Reputation: "Look to a supplement company's 'About Us' page on their website to make sure they are reputable," said Lentini. "A reputable deer antler spray company will have transparency in their company bio and description, and will tell you the story behind their brand. If a company is completely missing an 'About Us' page on their website, they probably have something to hide!"

Nanograms of IGF-1: "IGF-1 is the main active ingredient in deer antler spray, and is measured in nanograms. This is the number that will describe how strong a deer antler supplement is. Nutronics Labs offers a range of products with nanogram ratings of 3,000ng for starters, all the way up to 200,000ng per bottle, which is the world's strongest available. If a deer antler spray company doesn't mention the nanograms of IGF-1 in their product, then their supplements are probably just filler."

Reviews and Testimonials: "Check to see what other people are saying about each product by looking at reviews and testimonials. A reputable supplement company will have feedback from satisfied customers who have tried the products before," said Lentini. "It's also important to look for testimonials from doctors and medical professionals who endorse a product, as they are certified and trained to make health decisions, and can provide an informed opinion."

Mountain Home Care Announces the Creation of ‘Caregiver Leadership Award’

Author: Mountain Home Care
Dateline: Arden, North Carolina (ARDEN, N.C.)  | Wed, 30 Oct 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “In celebration of its 10th anniversary and National Family Caregiver's Month in November, Mountain Home Care announces the creation of its 'Caregiver Leadership Award.' The award recognizes exemplary professional caregivers with dual roles of service in the workplace and in their families.”



ARTICLE:

In celebration of its 10th anniversary and National Family Caregiver's Month in November, Mountain Home Care announces the creation of its "Caregiver Leadership Award." The award recognizes exemplary professional caregivers with dual roles of service in the workplace and in their families.

Founded in 2003, Mountain Home Care is a leading provider of home care and geriatric services in western North Carolina.

Founder Lana Wilde recalls her own dual role care-giving experiences while launching Mountain Home Care and caring for her mother-in-law, affectionately called "Granny."

"We set up office in the basement of our home, and Granny lived in the 'bonus room' over the garage. She was on the third level, we were trying to work, and Granny's calling in on the intercom," Wilde says. "We must have been a sight for sore eyes."

The "Caregiver Leadership Award" for dual role caregivers within the Mountain Home Care community comes directly from Wilde's experience. Award recipients will be honored in an informal, family style reception Friday, November 22, 2013 from 2-4 p.m., at the Arden Presbyterian Church Fellowship Room. Learn more at http://www.mountainhomecare.com/ .

Dual Role Caregivers May Provide 'Round the Clock Care

Professional care giver Karen Austin, an employee of Mountain Home Care, cares for her aging father who suffers from dementia. Whether she is on the clock or not, Austin lives and works with her father full time, providing the 24 hour care he needs and would otherwise be unable to receive and remain in his home.

"When I clock out from my work, I'm still here taking care of Dad," Austin says. "It's morally the right thing to do, but I couldn't do it if I had to be working out in the world. The ability to earn an income while taking care of Dad has made it possible for me to be his professional care giver. I'm someone he's comfortable with, someone he trusts, and I treat him differently than another paid caregiver might."

Austin says, "The compensation I receive professionally covers a small portion of what I do personally, and it enables Dad to stay at home and keep his dignity. It was worth the sacrifice of leaving the work I was doing."

Why a Caregiver Leadership Award?

The Caregiver Leadership Award will recognize excellence in the profession and draw attention to the growing challenges of health professionals in dual roles, says Wilde.

Few available studies exist regarding dual role caregivers employed in health care professions. In the U.S., where seven million individuals are caregivers, employment in the health services has consistently risen between 1990 and 2010, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics.

In 2010, the most recent year for which figures are available, 3,129,000 persons work in nursing and residential care settings. In North Carolina, for example, nurses alone comprise 88,190 members of the active labor work force. As more than one-third to one-half of adult children in the U.S. who provide parent or elder care are employed, it may be inferred that as many as 29,400-44,000 nurses may be dual role caregivers. Nurses, of course, are only one segment of the population which provides care to others at work and at home.

What Dual Role Care Giving Means to Employers:

The issue of care giving is widespread and growing, says Wilde. "The need for flexible work policies for professional caregivers in dual roles contributes to the success of individuals as well as geriatric and home care companies."

Wilde adds, "Caregivers who unsuccessfully try to balance full time work with care giving roles may find it difficult to focus on the positive aspects of the profession. Gratefully, professional training enhances preparation for dual roles."

"Conversely, family caregivers often lack that preparation and often run themselves into the ground. Qualified professional care givers can help supply a higher quality of care than the family members can manage on their own," says Wilde.

Significant numbers of dual role care givers are found outside the profession, too. About one-third of the Baby Boomer generation is caring for parents, with men as well as women fulfilling that role in roughly equal numbers, according to a Cornell Human Resources Review published in December 2011.

The "Caregiver Leadership Award" reception will be Friday, November 22, 2013, from 2-4 p.m., at the Arden Presbyterian Church Fellowship Room, 2215 Hendersonville Road.

Mountain Home Care, serves home and geriatric care clients throughout western North Carolina.
