In the United States, most of the large multi-facility providers are publicly owned and managed as for-profit businesses.[10] There are exceptions; the largest operator in the US is the Evangelical Lutheran Good Samaritan Society, a not-for-profit organization that manages 6,531 beds in 22 states, according to a 1995 study by the American Health Care Association.[14]
"I almost can't express the joy knowing each and every one of you brings me daily.

You are all truly an answer to prayer .. And I will always hold everyone there in my heart ... Long after that sweet man leaves us. I love you!"

“At UofL Hospital, we continually strive for excellence in the acute treatment of stroke patients,” said Kerri Remmel, M.D., Ph.D., medical director of the UofL Hospital Stroke Center and chair of the UofL Department of Neurology. “U Care adds the vital step of thoroughly programmed follow-up with stroke patients to ensure they continue recovery, avoid unnecessary readmission to the hospital and prevent a second stroke.”
In most western countries, care facilities for older adults are residential family care homes, freestanding assisted living facilities, nursing homes, and continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs).[8] A family care home is a residential home with support and supervisory personnel by an agency, organization, or individual that provides room and board, personal care and habilitation services in a family environment for at least two and no more than six persons.[9]

Team approach. Mayo Clinic doctors trained in blood vessel and brain conditions (cerebrovascular neurologists), blood vessel conditions and imaging (endovascular surgical neuroradiologists), blood vessel conditions and brain surgery (vascular neurosurgeons), physical medicine and rehabilitation (physiatrists), emergency medicine and other areas work together to promptly diagnose and treat people who have had strokes, and to prevent strokes in people who are at risk of strokes.
On both occasions I used their service, the caregivers either left minimal or no notes while visiting my elderly parents (no eating, sleeping or bathroom data). After the first visit, I contacted a supervisor at Around the Clock and asked specifically that the caregivers leave notes on eating, sleeping patterns, etc. Instead of improving, on the 2nd visit I only received notes from 1 of 3 caregivers...I paid for 16 hours of caregiving for people who may or may not have even showed up for all I know. Their medical staff is also hit and miss. On my father's post-hospital rehab, one of the 3 nurses missed appts at the house repeatedly...only making 1 of 5 scheduled appointments. After this, I contacted Around the Clock and asked them to send out a more reliable nurse. In the 5 weeks that have passed since, we have received 1 visit from a nurse...nobody makes their scheduled appointments. Is this the care you want for your elderly parents??

After adjusting for patient and hospital characteristics, PAA+/PSC+, PAA+/PSC-, and PAA-/PSC+ hospitals had 3.15 (95% confidence intervals 2.86-3.47); 3.23 (2.93-3.56), and 1.72 (1.47-2.00) higher odds of adhering to stroke care guidelines, respectively, than hospitals that had neither recognition, wrote Gregg C. Fonarow, MD, of the University of California Los Angeles, and his co-authors in the Oct. 15 issue of the Journal of the American Heart Association.
They are giving my son money from his ssa and he has nothing to show for it everytime he gets money he uses it for drugs. he goes looking for receipts and says hes spending it for his daughters but if he buys anything he usually sells it or loses it becuz he gets so wasted on drugs and he does not remember cuz hes mental supposedly but he sure remembers where to get his drugs and where to go til they burn him and take his money.  Then he can go back to around the clock and tell them another lie and do it til hes dead.  But that is not of their concern.  Good luck

Legal incapacity is an invasive and sometimes, difficult legal procedure. It requires that a person file a petition with the local courts, stating the elderly person lacks the capacity to carry out activities that include making medical decisions, voting, making gifts, seeking public benefits, marrying, managing property and financial affairs, choosing where to live and who they socialize with. Most states' laws require that two doctors or other health professionals to provide reports as evidence of such incompetence and the person to be represented by an attorney. Only then can the individual's legal rights be removed, and legal supervision by a guardian or conservator be initiated. The legal guardian or conservator is the person to whom the court delegates the responsibility of acting on the incapacitated person's behalf and must report regularly his or her activities to the court.

It’s very common to have a negative attitude after a serious illness, and some patients experience depression after a stroke — sometimes weeks or months later. However, it is absolutely critical to keep a realistic or positive attitude during rehabilitation to maximize results. Psychologists, psychiatrists and other therapists, who are part of your care team, may recommend therapy and/or medication.
