Managing Elder Care from Afar: A Practical Guide for Busy People

by Diane Dagefoerde

A Book Designed for Distance Caregivers

Whether you live 10, 100 or 1,000 miles away, Managing Elder Care from Afar will help you stay organized, save time and manage your parent’s care from anywhere. 

Distance caregivers are people who manage care for a loved one primarily by phone, video conferencing, email, and/or the internet. Perhaps you are one already. Or maybe it’s a looming necessity that seems impossible to achieve. But now there’s good news.

This book will help you learn how to manage caregiving quickly by answering some of the questions you might be struggling with right now such as:

  • How do I navigate difficult conversations about the need for coordinated care and get past “I refuse to move” discussion enders?
  • How do I get my siblings or other family members to pitch in and help out?
  • How do I know what’s really going on when I can’t be there to see it firsthand?
  • How do I use durable power of attorney to manage my parent’s finances?
  • How do I protect my parent from identity theft?
  • When should I use medical power of attorney to make health care decisions on their behalf?
  • What’s the difference between Medicare and Medicaid?
  • Does my parent need long-term care insurance?
  • How do I compare eldercare at home with assisted living costs?
  • What are the 5 signs it’s time to consider a move to assisted living?
  • How can I plan for my parent’s future care?!

Wherever you are in this daunting process, this book will help you manage all aspects of your parent’s care from afar by systematizing as many routine caregiving activities as possible, organizing all the information you need at your fingertips, and documenting things so that others CAN help you.

Home Remedies to Treat and Prevent Hemorrhoids

CERVIX       Cancer


WHAT IS CERVIX CANCER? : Cancer that forms in tissues of the cervix (the organ connecting the uterus and vagina). It is usually a slow-growing cancer that may not have symptoms but can be found with regular Pap tests (a procedure in which cells are scraped from the cervix and looked at under a microscope). Cervical cancer is almost always caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.Estimated new cases and deaths from cervical (uterine cervix) cancer in the United States in 2012: New cases 12,170 Deaths: 4,220
In 2012, more than 12,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer. Most will be younger than 55.

Thyroid Cancer


Definition of thyroid cancer: Cancer that forms in the thyroid gland (an organ at the base of the throat that makes hormones that help control heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature, and weight). Four main types of thyroid cancer are papillary, follicular, medullary, and anaplastic thyroid cancer. The four types are based on how the cancer cells look under a microscope.

Gesundheit bringt Wohlstand (Big Ideas) (German Edition)

by Emmanuel Malabo Makasa

Chirurgische Eingriffe retten Leben, aber die Gesundheitspolitik in Entwicklungsländern ist oft dürftig oder konzentriert sich allzu sehr auf die Behandlung von Notfällen. Eine umfassende Gesundheitsversorgung für alle Menschen ist nicht gegeben.

In vielen ländlichen Gebieten Afrikas ist die Mütter- und Kindersterblichkeit immer noch hoch, weil es vor Ort keine Chirurgen gibt. Viele Kinder brechen die Schule ab, weil sie wegen einer Behinderung den langen Weg zur Schule nicht schaffen. Frauen kann nach einer schweren Geburt durch eine Operation geholfen werden – ebenso älteren Menschen, die durch den grauen Star zu erblinden drohen. Werden angeborene Fehlbildungen wie die Gaumenspalte operiert, können Kinder besser ernährt werden.

Investitionen in das Gesundheitswesen und eine bessere chirurgische Versorgung erhöhen insgesamt die Lebensqualität und wirken Diskriminierung entgegen. AuÃ?erdem entstehen gut bezahlte, angesehene Arbeitsplätze – das kommt auch der Wirtschaft zugute.

Emmanuel M. Makasa, Chirurg und Vertreter Sambias bei den Vereinten Nationen, setzt sich seit Jahren dafür ein, dass alle Menschen Zugang zu chirurgischen Leistungen erhalten. Besonders am Herzen liegt ihm die chirurgische Versorgung der ländlichen Bevölkerung in Entwicklungsländern. Au�erdem möchte er körperlich beeinträchtigten Menschen das Leben erleichtern.

Dieser Essay ist der dritte aus der Reihe “Big Ideas” der Europäischen Investitionsbank. Die beiden vorherigen Essays widmeten sich den Themen Wasser und künstliche Intelligenz.

Auf Einladung der EIB schreiben internationale Vordenkerinnen und Vordenker über die drängendsten Themen unserer Zeit. Ihre Texte zeigen uns: Wir müssen umdenken, wenn wir die Umwelt schützen, die Chancengleichheit fördern und das Leben der Menschen weltweit verbessern wollen.

General Theory of Collision(Third Edition) «Power Generation with a Mechanism that Provides Weight»

by Muneo Matsunaga

«Power Generation with a Mechanism that Provides Weight» A Power Generation System with Immediate Effects for Resolution of Global Warming and Environmental Issues} is mainly a picture of the Higgs mechanism.
As a result, a conservation law is not a conservation law of mechanical energy, but a true conservation law and includes Noether’s theorem, but I have shown a numerical formula to derive neutrino masses by the mechanism that provides weight.

In addition, my 14 new discoveries in physics have made clarifications on “Monju” being a perpetual motion machine, as well as on the structure of gravity.
A theory of gravity is needed in explaining the strong interaction, and I have made explanations that would serve as hints for it.
With an aim to resolve energy-related issues, I have discovered pictures of the Higgs mechanism and provided an opportunity to solve unresolved problems of physics.
I have derived that a complex domain exists at the center of the structure of gravity from a conservation law.
Additionally, my thesis has shown a way to generate power only with gravity, which is compact but meets the capacity and total necessary amount.
Based on this, I have provided hints for resolving not all, but many of the various problems with elementary particles.
Though mainly for elementary particles, with the Higgs mechanism at the center, I have elucidated the mechanism of providing weight.
Although pictures of the Higgs mechanism are not clear, I have also demonstrated that super space is also a necessary concept.
We can also revert current carbon dioxide emissions to the level of the pre-Industrial Revolution era.
Fiscal problems can also be resolved.
Overall, conservation laws are being discussed.
Though mass was not defined until now, I have, very strictly.
I have revealed the structure of gravity.
I have also succeeded in embedding length, one of the biggest problems in superstring theory.

Non-Hodgkin lymphoma (Cancer Book 14)

by Baker T.

Definition of non-Hodgkin lymphoma: Any of a large group of cancers of lymphocytes (white blood cells). Non-Hodgkin lymphomas can occur at any age and are often marked by lymph nodes that are larger than normal, fever, and weight loss. There are many different types of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. These types can be divided into aggressive (fast-growing) and indolent (slow-growing) types, and they can be formed from either B-cells or T-cells. B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas include Burkitt lymphoma, chronic lymphocytic leukemia/small lymphocytic lymphoma (CLL/SLL), diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, follicular lymphoma, immunoblastic large cell lymphoma, precursor B-lymphoblastic lymphoma, and mantle cell lymphoma. T-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas include mycosis fungoides, anaplastic large cell lymphoma, and precursor T-lymphoblastic lymphoma. Lymphomas that occur after bone marrow or stem cell transplantation are usually B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphomas. Prognosis and treatment depend on the stage and type of disease. Also called NHL.
Estimated new cases and deaths from non-Hodgkin lymphoma in the United States in 2012:
