PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING - Randall WilsonSometimes, when a far-flung family comes together for the holidays, they may discover that an elderly loved one is having difficulty functioning well at home.

Here are some signs to look for:

Altered eating habits. Forgetting to eat or losing interest in food altogether are both signs of poor health. Alternatively, seniors with memory issues can overeat or repeat meals. A kitchen stocked with spoiled, half-eaten or expired food suggests a senior who can no longer manage alone.

Antisocial behavior. Losing interest in friends, withdrawing from social situations or neglecting a previously cherished hobby may indicate depression, memory loss or a decline in cognitive abilities.

Worsening finances. A senior who forgets to pay bills (or pays them multiple times) may need help managing their household finances. Look for unwanted magazine subscriptions or donation solicitations that can easily drain a bank account.

Poor personal hygiene. Many seniors feel uncomfortable asking for help with personal hygiene. Bad odors, a disheveled appearance or indications of skipped showers and baths all suggest that a senior can no longer perform daily grooming tasks unaided.

Decline in safety. For a senior, a fall in the shower (and the subsequent hospitalization) can be a life-threatening injury. A senior who leaves the stove on or forgets how often to take their medication may need daily help.

While the family’s in town, be proactive. Don’t wait until the situation becomes an emergency.

Call us to arrange a tour. We’ll be glad to show you what makes Prestige Care Huntington Terrace special.

WESTON KIA - Dan SchofieldIn Oregon, our first really cold snap can happen anytime. Don’t get stuck on the road – or spinning around on it - in a vehicle unprepared for winter.

Take your vehicle to a reputable shop and make sure it’s checked for the following winter basics:

Engine coolant doesn’t just keep your engine from overheating – it also protects your engine from corrosion. Every vehicle requires a certain ratio of coolant to water. Your repair technician will know that ratio, as well as what type of coolant to use.

Have your oil checked to ensure you have the proper type for the changing weather outside. During the winter months, when temperatures get below freezing, your mechanic may advise switching to a thinner, less viscous oil.

Battery - Don’t let a dead battery put a screeching halt to your day. A thorough inspection of your battery, cables, terminals and fluid will head off problems and make sure your car is ready for winter. The shop will check the age and strength (amount of voltage) left in your battery and find out whether it needs replacement.

Tires – What type will you need for the terrain and conditions you’ll be driving through - whether it’s snow, sleet or ice? Should you drive all-season tires or invest in snow tires? If you choose snow tires, most car manufacturers recommend changing all four to snow tires in the winter.

Plan ahead now to make your winter holidays a lot more enjoyable!

PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING - HUNTINGTON TERRACE - Randall WilsonHere at Prestige Care Huntington Terrace, our staff is keenly aware of the importance of keeping our residents healthy and strong.

If we notice one of our residents has a decrease in function, a doctor’s referral may be required. If the doctor recommends physical therapy, a home health agency of the resident’s choosing will come to our facility to work with the patient to regain normal function.

Such treatment is usually covered by Medicare Part B.

October is National Physical Therapy Month, an appropriate time to consider the benefits of physical therapy.

Prescription opioids to control pain have become a huge problem in the United States, with abuse and addiction growing to epidemic proportions.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more people died from drug overdoses in 2014 than any other previous year, and at least half involved a prescription opioid. As many as one in four people using prescription opioids long-term for non-cancer pain struggles with addiction.

In March, the CDC released guidelines for prescribing opioids for chronic pain. The CDC made it clear that non-pharmacologic alternatives to prescription opioids, such as physical therapy, are the preferred option for treating chronic pain.

At Prestige Care, having a physical therapist come to our location makes it more likely that treatment will take place, on schedule, and help the resident get back to enjoying activities quickly.

Brought to you by Tony Kriss - Advanced Firearms Training - FIREARMS INSIDER


ADVANCED FIREARMS TRAINING - Tony KrissWhen you handle a firearm, having a safety-oriented attitude is the best thing you can do to prevent firearm accidents. Ignorance and carelessness are the two main causes of firearm accidents, which is why I think it’s necessary that you understand safe weapon handling; otherwise, you or someone else WILL get hurt. In the spirit of keeping you safe this holiday season, here are more safe weapon-handling tips, courtesy of Advanced Firearms Training:

1.) Know your firearm—Don’t just guess, KNOW how your firearm operates: how it loads and unloads, where the safety is located, etc.

2.) Keep your firearm unloaded until ready to use—Don’t store your firearm with live rounds in it, and don’t load it until you’re ready to use your firearm.

3.) Keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction—If you’re not ready to use your firearm, keep it pointed in a safe direction; generally, this will be towards the ground. Treat every firearm like it is loaded.

4.) Know your target and beyond—Before you’re ready to fire, make sure to track what’s behind your target; bullets can go through—and beyond—your intended target.

5.) Keep your finger off the trigger until ready to fire—As long as your finger is away from the trigger, your firearm will not discharge. This is arguably the most important rule of firearm safety.

MCCORD CONSTRUCTION - Donivon McCordHomeowners looking to add upgrades or remodel sections of their home will usually wait until the nice weather of spring and summer arrives. But why not remodel now? By the time spring arrives, you could already be enjoying your newly renovated kitchen or your wonderfully redesigned bathroom.

Winter remodels come with a number of benefits. Contractors typically have less projects in the winter months, making scheduling substantially easier than the summer months. Manufacturers may have close-out prices on appliances and materials before raising prices in the spring. The end result is a project that costs you less money, saves you more time, and leads to a higher return on your investment.

And there are even more ways to make your home renovation worth the money and effort you put into it. Start by repairing what needs to be fixed; home repairs are the renovation that yields the most value for your home. After that, your kitchen and bathroom are the two areas where a remodel is most beneficial, due to their frequent use.

Finally, another smart move to make is remodeling with energy efficient products. Whether it’s doors, windows, or appliances, these products will add value to your home while helping you to save on your energy costs.

At McCord Construction, we believe that NOW is the best time to remodel your home. Contact us today to get started: We always put the customer first.

CREATIVE VISIONS LANDSCAPES - Dori and Randy DeLaunayWith winter right around the corner, you’ll need to make specific adjustments to how you care for your home’s pond feature. You don’t need us to tell you how different the summer and winter months are, and your pond can definitely tell the difference too! Make sure that your pond is in great shape this winter by following these tricks for a healthy winter pond:

  • Clean out any leaves and debris before they decay. The cleaner your pond, the happier and healthier your fish will be.
  • Add salt to kill unwanted parasites on your koi and goldfish. It’s a safe, natural, and effective method for ridding your fish of unwanted parasites.
  • When the water reaches 50 degrees, stop feeding your pond fish. Koi and goldfish will hibernate until the spring and will not need to be fed.
  • Keep adding beneficial bacteria to ensure no imbalances in the winter. This is the season when fish are most susceptible to water quality issues.
  • Keep an open hole in a frozen pond for essential gas exchange. This can be done with a pond heater or by leaving your pump running.
  • For more helpful tips with your winter landscape, we’re always just a phone call away for friendly, local advice (We do free water testing all year round!). Give us a call today at 503-663-5483.

    HILLCREST CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Ryan ThomasBoard certified chiropractic orthopedists are doctors of chiropractic that have completed extensive postdoctoral education in non-surgical orthopedics, and have passed rigorous specialty Board examinations leading to Diplomate status as a chiropractic orthopedist. Less than 2% of chiropractic physicians attain this status.

    To become Board certified, the chiropractic orthopedic specialist is required to demonstrate advanced proficiency in the evaluation and non-operative management of a broad range of injuries, conditions and disorders of the neuromusculoskeletal system with particular emphasis on the spine and extremities.

    Who Is Certified?

    While many doctors of chiropractic (DC) prepare for careers in private practice, teaching, or research many choose additional education and training in a specialty field and pursue specialty certification. Practicing orthopedic specialists (Diplomates) hold specialty board certification. Diplomates that are members of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists and are in good standing are titled Fellows of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists (FACO).

    The Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists maintains a recertification process (3 year cycle) available for Fellows of the Academy, to provide an ongoing program for maintaining clinical competency in the specialty of chiropractic orthopedics.

    HONKE HEATING - Randy PrestonIf you are like most people, you probably need to know how to get your furnace ready for the winter. Along with routine maintenance, there are a few simple things you can do to keep your furnace running as efficiently as possible.

  • Make sure that there is nothing stored around your furnace, especially flammable material.
  • Change the batteries in your thermostat and switch your thermostat to the heating mode.
  • Make sure that all of your vents are open and nothing has been placed over them.
  • Clean your air vents and ducts by removing the vent covers, using the extension hose of your vacuum to remove the dust.
  • Stock up on air filters during the warmer months. Make sure that you change your air filters often, or if you have washable filters, wash them often.
  • If you have an oil furnace, contact your oil delivery service for “fill up”. Buying oil is less expensive before the winter.
  • Test you furnace while it’s still warm out, making sure that there is no problems.
  • Other things that you should do:

    1.) Reverse your ceiling fans for winterized air circulation.

    2.) Never use your oven, range or outdoor barbecue to heat your home because these appliances are not designed for this purpose.

    3.) Install a carbon monoxide (CO) detector and test it monthly.

    4.) Change your batteries in you smoke detector and test it monthly.

    Schedule an appointment to clean your furnace early in the season. Professional companies get very busy at the onset of winter, so it’s a good idea to schedule your appointment ahead of time. A professionally cleaned heating system will work better and more efficiently, saving you money in the long run.

    Call Honke Heating and Air Conditioning today to schedule your maintenance appointment!

    CHERRY PARK PLAZA - Maleesa MadsenAccording to the AARP, socializing with others has been proven to relieve stress and decrease the chances of ill health. For outgoing seniors, moving into senior housing provides the exhilarating opportunity to meet new people and make new friends. Other seniors, however, can feel a dread or anxiety when it comes to building a new social network.

    Fortunately, senior housing provides many great opportunities to make friends! Here are 5 steps to help you on your journey:

    1.) Bake for your neighbors—Your neighbors often end up the people you see the most, so introduce yourself (and bring some cookies with you).

    2.) Relax in common areas—You won’t meet many people if you never leave your apartment, so hang out in the common areas and strike up conversations with those around you.

    3.) Signup for activities/clubs—Cherry Park Plaza offers a wide variety of activities, giving retirees a chance to meet and spend time with new people who share common interests and experiences.

    4.) Volunteer—When you volunteer, you have the opportunity to connect with those you’re serving while simultaneously building relationships with whoever you are volunteering with, making volunteering one of the best ways to find new friends.

    5.) Follow a passion—Participate in an activity near and dear to your heart, and do so regularly. You will have repeated contact with the same people, and familiarity breeds friendship.

    If you’re ready to make new friends, Cherry Park Plaza is the place to be! Call us today at (503) 573-4944 to get started!
