While there are certainly programs available for use by the elderly in Thailand, questions of equity have risen since their introduction.[32] The rich elderly in Thailand are much more likely to have access to care resources, while the poor elderly are more likely to actually use their acquired health care, as observed in a study by Bhumisuk Khananurak.[32] However, over 96% of the nation has health insurance with varying degrees of care available.[32]
Thank you for assisting our son get his life back under control. When he came out of the hospital I didn't know what to do with him. Your personal interest and that of all the staff and residents at Best Personal Care made him welcome and gave him structure and community he didn't have living on his own. Unlike other places our son has been, I have heard practically no complaints from him about the staff, the food or the other residents.
When someone is having symptoms of a stroke – slurred speech, sudden leg or arm weakness, facial drooping, loss of balance or visual changes – getting them to the hospital quickly can mean the difference between recovery and permanent disability. One of the best treatments for ischemic stroke is treatment with the clot-busting drug, intravenous tissue plasminogen activator, or IV tPA. If given in the first three hours after the start of stroke symptoms, IV tPA has been shown to significantly reduce the effects of stroke and lessen the chance of permanent disability. UofL Hospital Stroke Center staff strive to deliver IV tPA to appropriate patients within 45 minutes to one hour from the time they arrive at the hospital.
The GWTG-Stroke program is a voluntary program created by the American Heart Association and made available to all hospitals in the U.S. in 2003. To receive a PAA from the program, participating hospitals must meet each of seven individual performances measures -- such as prescription of anti-thrombotic medication within 48 hours of admission -- in 85% of hospitalizations for at least 1 year.

Ischemic strokes are the most common. They occur when an artery is blocked and blood flow to the brain is stopped. Caused by build-ups of fatty deposits on the inside of an artery wall which then becomes completely clogged. Ischemic strokes account for eighty percent of all strokes suffered. Some ischemic strokes are preceded by stroke-like symptoms called transient ischemic attacks (TIAs). These may occur months before the stroke. The loss of vision in a TIA may be described as a feeling that a shade is being pulled down over your eyes. The symptoms are usually temporary and improve within 10 to 20 minutes.
Traditionally, care for older adults has been the responsibility of family members and was provided within the extended family home.[6] Increasingly in modern societies, care is now being provided by state or charitable institutions.[6] The reasons for this change include decreasing family size, greater life expectancy, the geographical dispersion of families, and the tendency for women to be educated and work outside the home.[6] Although the changes have affected European and North American countries first, they are now increasingly affecting Asian countries as well.[7]
Drug/Device: Drug administration, if appropriate, is the next link in the chain of survival. If the patient is a candidate for fibrinolytic therapy, the window of opportunity for administration is narrow. According to the American Heart Association guidelines, fibrinolytic therapy should be administered within three hours of the onset of symptoms. If the patient is not a candidate for drug therapy they may qualify for Endovascular therapy to remove the clot mechanically rather than with fibrinolytics.

In Canada, such privately run for-profit and not-for-profit facilities also exist. Because of cost factors, some provinces operate government-funded public facilities run by each province's or territory's Ministry of Health or subsidize the cost of the facility. In these care homes, elderly Canadians may pay for their care on a sliding scale, based on annual income. The scale that they are charged on depends on whether they are considered "Long Term Care" or "Assisted Living." For example, l in January 2010 seniors living in British Columbia's government-subsidized "Long Term Care" (also called "Residential Care") started pay 80% of their after-tax income unless their after-tax Income is less than $16,500. The "Assisted Living" tariff is calculated more simply as 70% of the After-Tax Income.[22] As seen in the province of Ontario, there are waiting lists for many long-term care homes, though, so families may need to resort to hiring home health care or paying for a stay in a private retirement home.[23]

For medical help such as changing dressings, providing post-surgical rehabilitation, overseeing medications, aiding with physical therapy, or helping with mobility devices, you'll want home health care provided by caregiver who's gone through training and is being supervised by a nurse. (Keep in mind that licensing and certification requirements vary by state; you'll want to ask lots of questions about your caregiver's qualifications.)

This inspection took place on 17 September 2018 and was carried out by one inspector. The provider was given 48 hours’ notice of the inspection visit because it is a small domiciliary care agency and we needed to be sure that they would be in the office. We also needed them to get people’s consent for us to visit them at home or telephone them as part of the inspection.
