In October 2001, James O’Connor was diagnosed with mesothelioma, the asbestos caused cancer. His prognosis was less than a year to live. Surgery was not possible because of the position of the tumor and chemotherapy would decrease his quality of life and not significantly improve his length of life. His oncologist suggested that he take his wife on a cruise and start hospice care upon his return. James rejected the idea. Instead he was determined to survive this cancer. Working with other professional clinicians, he formulated a regimen of over 100 supplements a day, changed his diet, practiced mind-body medicine,… [Read More]

Mobility Scooter – Worry-Free Movement For Everyone

Our legs are importaant to us in that they help us to move from one place to another, but when they get damaged the person loses his or her mobility and needs to depend on others for this. Mobility is also affected through congenital malformation of one or either leg or may be caused due to accident. Advanced age also often causes mobility problems among many people. The wheelchairs of yesteryears were brought out to counteract this issue. But people were not content with hand-operated contraptions that were useful only within the confines of a home or yard, wanting self-propelled transportations that could be used on road, too. And that’s precisely how the mobility scooter was born. You are sure to come across many makers of these scooters today for all those with mobility worries, but there is one company that has already made a mark for themselves and this is Pride. Thus the mobility scooter for senior has today become something that is known for their quality and dependability. Though the company started with their line of mechanical wheelchairs that were known as Pride Power Chairs, they are now also making the finest mobility scooters.

You will find the mobility scooter for senior in two different types – there is the 3 wheel type and also the 4 wheel variety. You can understand that due to its single axis structure, the 3 wheel scooter can be better maneuvered than the four wheel type. Nevertheless, with Pride’s patented ‘JZMD Mid-wheel Drive’ design, the Pride four-wheel mobility scooter can negotiate unbelievable seamless turns with miraculous comfort and ease.

However the price of the Pride mobility scooter tends to vary to a great extent as there are a few models that tend to cost more than others and this is because they come with advanced features – however many people still prefer them because of these premium features. They can get financial assistance from Medicaid for this, and the authorities are also extremely willing to help them get the scooter quickly. Those who are elderly and are physically challenged and are also underprivileged can benefit to a great extent from the Medicaid program. But that is not all – the company is also keen to process the papers for application to make it easier for the applicant and also to speed up the process.

Mobility Scooter For Seniors – A World Without Limits

We have various types of people – some are sick and some are healthy, and some of them are dominant and others are physically challenged. Some people have been affected by Poliomyelitis and thus cannot even walk, but there are those who can run so fast that they have won an Olympics sprint medal. And some other have been unfortunately victims of automobile accidents and have either lost their mobility or have lost the leg. The electric mobility scooter for seniors is naturally a great thing for them because they can once again move about freely and do their daily activities.

These small powerful motorized vehicles may often appear like oversized mechanical toys, but actually they have two or four stroke internal combustion engines and pneumatic tires and look much like adult tri-cycle. They look different than regular scooters because of the additional third wheel that keeps them stable. You will find these disabled mobility scooters in a range of shapes, styles and sizes and the selection should be made based on the actually disability and nature of the terrain the person has to cover.

But when making the purchase for the electric mobility scooter, very often the physically challenged person faces a problem and this is a reality. Some models that are superior are quite steep when it comes to their cost and this is why many people face problems in making the payment and seek some financial assistance. And the good news is, they can file an application for financial assistance in many ways. The person can get a good discount that will make it affordable for him/her to buy the scooter. Medicaid, a Federal Health care Assistance Program for the elderly, disabled or underprivileged individuals frequently arranges payment for these motorized vehicles. But to benefit from Medicaid, the person will need to fill out many forms and submit documents of financial status along with the application and also prove the nature of the disability (whether temporary or permanent) and this process can take months.

Fortunately, most retailers are aware of the frustrating and time consuming process associated with Medicaid which could be killing for one who needs a scooter urgently and so come out to help fill out the paperwork quickly. This can help a lot in simplifying the process and availing the financial assistance at an early date. There are some who would even give a scooter absolutely free to the person needing it, while the Medicaid papers are being processed.

In some cases, the application for Medicaid is rejected and if this is the case there’s still hope – there are ways in which the person may still use the electric mobility scooter.

How Far Are We Behind In Providing Affordable Family Health Insurance Plans?

Is family health insurance coverage a thing of the past?

The state of the economy has become the number one concern of the average family. A decade ago, family health insurance coverage was almost taken for granted. If you worked for a large corporation, one of the advantages was that your employer provided health insurance as a standard part of the salaried employee’s perks.

Several years ago, the Federal government enacted tax legislation which was supposed to encourage small businesses to provide group health insurance coverage to their employees, with a tax break incentive. This legislation did little to improve the picture. Who knows why?

Perhaps the tax incentives were simply not cost-effective enough for the small business owner to implement. Large corporations started cutting back on their family health insurance plans.

Today, nearly half of American workers have no medical insurance coverage at all. With all of the other obligations a family needs to meet, health insurance goes by the wayside. It’s simply no longer affordable.
