Home Health Care Is Better Than Hospital Care

As we all know, home is the place of emotional, physical association, memories, and comfort. The hospital is the place for primary care for the people suffering from chronic illness and acute issues. Many people feel upsetting while leaving their home. What can be the solution for this? Asks Gary Ferone who is the franchise owner of Assisting Hand in Stamford, Connecticut.

The only solution for this kind of people is to visit home health care. Home health care is the fastest growing segment and they provide a variety of different home health care services for seniors including helping the patients with daily needs. Is home health care really better than hospital care? The immediate answer is yes and it comes with the 5 reasons of why it is better than hospital care.

  • By receiving home health care services, patients can enjoy the personal care in the comfort of their own homes and in the presence of their loved ones.
  • Home health care help and support the family members, allowing them to enjoy quality time with their elderly loved ones.
  • Home health care is recognized as the most cost-effective form of long-term health care when compared to hospitals.
  • By having good quality nursing care at home, re-hospitalization gets reduced. In many cases, patients used to return to the hospital soon after their previous stay and this may be costly and potentially harmful. Hence, this can be avoided with home health care services.

Apart from all these facilities, family members, and friends can visit the patients anytime they wish while compared to time-based visiting hours in the hospital.


Diet and Diabetes – Gary Ferone


As food is digested, it is broken down into glucose which is also known as sugar which provides energy and powers our cells. Insulin which is a hormone made in the pancreas moves the glucose from the blood to the cells. If there is not enough insulin or the insulin is not working properly, then the glucose stays in the blood as well as causes blood sugar levels to rise. There are three main types of diabetes are type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. Type 1 is caused from the pancreas no longer being able to make insulin and is usually found in children, teens and young adults.

Gestational diabetes can also occur near the end of a woman’s pregnancy and usually disappears after the baby’s birth. When poorly controlled diabetes causes blood glucose levels that are too high or too low, one may not feel well and diabetes that is poorly controlled over time can lead to complications that affect the body from head to toe. Issues can also occur with everything from one’s eyes, kidneys and nerves to reproductive organs, blood vessels and gums. Processed foods as well as items high in fat or sugar not only can disrupt the balance between glucose and insulin which results in inflammation.

High Technology Medical Gadgets

A microchip which could power a bionic eye and its system consists of a pair of glasses which is equipped with a camera that simulates a retina as well as a processor and then they convert those images into electrical signals which can be sent to the brain through the microchip. An electrical stimulator could let patients flip the off switch on migraines and the gadget emits the electrical signals which heads off the pain messages sent to the brain implanted under the skin and this device stimulates the occipital nerve which connects with the parts of the skull that are pain sensitive.

A major blood clot typically requires a surgery by the scalpel and a tiny injectable device could be sent through the blood stream to fix the problem incision free. An edible sensor is a device which can be swallowed in the capsule and is activated by the stomach fluid and sends some signals to a doctor the time of ingestion as well as other vitals such as the heart rate. A bandage with a microvascular stamp is a smattering of the living cells which delivers the growth factors to the damaged tissues. It could also eventually help patients with severe injuries rebuild the entire vascular networks by controlling the spacing of the new blood vessels.

Useful Tips to Improve Memory by Gary Ferone

Here are some tips which will help one in improving the memory are:

  • Link the list: Try to remember several things as well as ideas at once by linking them together in the mind.
  • Personalize the list: Organize the lists into short, manageable sections and also try to connect the items to something that is easier for one to remember.
  • Create an acronym: Train the brain to remember items in a specific sequence by creating a word to represent the objects.
  • Create a visual image: Visualize an object that will help remind you in the future, if one is trying to remember someone’s name.
  • Focus on what one is trying to remember: Spending a few moments actively processing the thoughts can make it very much easier to recall what one need to remember in the future.
  • Use all the senses to help improve the memory: Verbally list all the appointments out loud will help solidify the dates in the mind.
  • Write it down: Simply writing the information down will help the brain retain it even if one does not actually use the list or a note to remind of an appointment.
  • Be positive: Don’t doubt yourself; our brains can often do more than we realize.

Improving Brain Function – Gary Ferone

Exercise builds new brain cells and a process which is known as neurogenesis was recently discovered that demonstrated that the new brain cells are continuously being made as well as stored. One third of the neurons in the hippo campus, the area of the brain are involved in forming, organizing and storing memories which are regularly renewed throughout the life.


Experiences and learning strengthened these new neurons which cause them to branch out and make new connections and as the neurons were utilized, they developed even more connections and became stronger. Our brains are made up of billions of connections and the more neurons we have the bigger our brains and the better our cognitive functioning and exercise contribute to the growing of new neurons.

The body’s fuel which is derived from our food is digested and moved into the blood stream, it needs to be converted into energy. Within each cell are thousands of smaller molecules called mitochondria which are also known as the cells’ energy factories and they turn the glucose into a substance called adenosine triphosphate. Exercise also produces proteins which travel through the blood stream and in the brain playing a critical role in our highest thought processes.
