Home Healthcare, What To Do?

Hey neighbors,

I know healthcare is on the rise and many times we are caught suddenly with healthcare bills and the problem of paying them.  Many people, especially as they get older need to plan ahead for home healthcare expenses.  How can you plan ahead to be prepared?  I am really hoping some of you will leave comments with your ideas.  All too often we just live our lives never thinking that far ahead.  What happens when you need home healthcare, but can not afford it?

We have 6 children and have that occasional emergency room visit and the bills that immediately follow.    What happens though when you end up with a long term illness.  Have you planned ahead for this?  As we ponder this question I would like to suggest an idea or two.

1. Start a savings account now that you put a little bit in each week or month.  It will add up, especially if you start when you are young.  Make it an account that you don't touch.

2. Consider the different options you have through Medicare or Medicaid.  Sometimes this is the only option available.

I am not looking forward to having any home healthcare costs, but I am sure it will come up in the future.  We are presently working on saving what we can and of course we will have to consider other options if the need appears.

AAG has some really good ideas to help you prepare when home healthcare becomes necessary.  Be sure to check out their info-graphic and then tell me what you think.

Thanks for stopping by today!  Be sure to visit again soon!

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
