Whats your plan for the future? Call today, and lets talk about it: 407.672.1620. We customized our home and our retirement plan. Imagine a time in your life when you have the freedom to do exactly as you please. Relax ...revitalize ...reinvent ...renew. And, then imagine a place where you can do all that on your terms and still have the complete peace of mind that comes only with the guarantee of comprehensive continuing care. That place ...is The May ower the gold standard for retirement communities in Central Florida. Here, you have the freedom and exibility to customize your home and your retirement lifestyle to make them uniquely yours. And while youre doing that, youll also have the guarantee of pre-funded long-term care in our 5-Star, Gold Seal Health Center. Thats what prompted residents like Ernie and Ann Cross to plan ahead and proactively make the move ... because they wanted to, not because they needed to. How about you? The room was dark and blurry, and a constant trickle of pain radiated from my feet. I was being told some simple tasks to complete, but I couldnt hear much of the in structions because of the other cacophony of noises blasting in my ears the white noise of a television with lost signal, the jabbering of voices of intelligible words, and the oc casional sharp siren that made me jump. I told the instructor I couldnt hear, but all I got Couldnt she understand me? I had already been told that no help would be given, but Id somehow already forgotten that. I knew I had to fold some towels, so I began doing that. taken so long to do something so simple in my adult life. skills, struggled over and over looked more like a lump of material than the normal crisp square I had aimed to create. I was frustrated and emotional. I didnt know why, but I almost wanted to cry. The siren blared again; my hands, startled, lost grip of the towel. This is as close as a person with a normal brain can get to experiencing dementia. I dont have dementia, but the Virtual Dementia Tour, cre ated by P.K. Beville, a special ist in geriatrics with more than 30 years of experience and Wind Dreams, has put me and more than 1 million people in the shoes of someone with the disease. The 10 minutes are unnerving and eye-opening. Many, including healthcare professionals, have said they could have never imagined that this is what life was like for a person with dementia. Consulate Health Care, a provider of senior healthcare services based in Maitland where I experienced the simulator, brought the tour to its employees so that they can provide more understanding, compassionate care. We can teach a lot of knowledge, but you really need to experience it your self to have the empathy for said Mia Manni, a registered nurse and vice president of clinical outcomes management for Consulate Health Care. Everything I thought kind of More than 5 million Ameri cans are living with dementia; every 67 seconds another per son develops Alzheimers, and one in three seniors dies with Alzheimers or another form of dementia, according to statis tics collected by the Alzheim ers Association.

Kaiser Health News took a look recently at some of the possibilities of remote monitoring by high-tech into your cellphone and allow your doctor to keep track of your health, For example, if your heart rate accelerates while youre doing your daily errands, the doctor will know it devices can tell whether were taking tress on our bed to check breathing our glucose levels or blood pressure. Thats not to say most doctors are jumping on these devices as being the latest and greatest. While they like the information that can be gathered, some doctors are concerned about pa tient privacy. The information doesnt go straight into patient records, but the day eventually will come when it will. At this point, patients must give permission for their information to be taken and must go into the doctors themselves over the Internet. In a preview of coming events, one device developer is already hooked up with advertisers and labs. Insurance companies are encouraging patients to upload their information from other devices. Many of the devices are not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Are you nervous about this yet? What if you knew your information would go over the Internet, or if you knew it wasnt always covered by health privacy laws? If youre asked to wear one of these new gadgets, ask questions about where the information goes ... lots and lots of questions. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible. Send email to columnreply2@gmail.com 2013 King Features Synd. Inc. High-tech gadgets track our health Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights Reserved How Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

If it wasnt before, its certainly clear now why the nations super-rich oligarchs work relentlessly to sabo tage the Obama presidency. to expand overtime pay and thwart a system that effec tively cheats employees out of what theyve earned. Its just one example of how he and his administration are a threat to the few who have burrowed into our legal framework to get away with their shame less tactics to hoard the other peoples money. Their overtime scam is particularly sleazy. What they have been allowed to do by lawmakers and regulators is declare low-level workers to be supervisors if they oversee fellow employees as just a tiny part of their job, while they actually spend nearly all their time performing the same tasks. By designating them salaried, the corporate mas ters are able to get around the long-standing requirement that working more than 40 hours a week results in time-and-ahalf compensation. Right now, the Bush-era pay dividing line is $455 per week. This president has directed his Labor Department to increase that to an as-yetundetermined amount saying, Were going to update those overtime rules to restore that basic principle that if you have to work more, you should be That would seem to be fairly straightforward, but not in todays setup. The 1-percenters have their hand puppets, mainly Republicans. And these are talking pup pets. When their buttons are pressed, they react to any economic initiatives from the White House by reciting that mind that they offer little proof or that the various proposals are simple fairness they are ample evidence that spread ing the wealth just a teeny bit would enhance growth, but its ignored. We witness the same dance of distortion when it comes to the Obama campaign to increase the minimum wage beyond its sub-pittance level. What would that be? You that reasoning, the best way to save jobs is to pay the employ ees nothing. But lets not go down that road. Those who hold all the power meaning the very few who control the nations whatever it takes to prevent any disruption of their com plex schemes to protect their advantages and support the countrys poisonous inequal ity. Their most effective tac tic is to subvert our election system, not just by putting up impediments to open ballot the campaign with propaganda much of it misleading and deceive the voters into ousting anyone who wants reform and installing those who will wont make waves. sumer Protection Agency somehow slips through the cracks and becomes real ity, their lobbyists fan out to dilute its power while the ones whose corrupt practices might be challenged beckon their po litical rag dolls to gum up the as they move in lock step.

Page 6 DEMENTIA | Inside the dementia simulator, simple tasks become nearly impossible as confusion sets in represent two-thirds of Ameri cans living with the disease and there are 2.5 times more women than men working to provide the intensive 24-hoursa-day care for a loved one with Alzheimers. The symptoms of dementia are incredibly disrupting to daily life. Theres memory loss, loss of problem solv ing and reasoning skills, and normal tasks such as folding laundry become almost impossible. Those with dementia experience confusion with time or place, changes in mood and personality, and have trouble joining or follow ing a conversation. The tour was created using Bevilles 30 years of clinical observation of people with de mentia and how their caregiv ers respond to their behavior, and studies of brain scans to see where the damage was on dementia patients to determine ways to mimic that damage and create those behaviors in people with normal brains. At the tour, participants enter a dim room with strobe simple tasks to complete folding laundry and setting a table. Headphones pump in loud noises to block out all other sound to represent the loss of ability to differenti ate each noises importance. For example, a television left on across the room would be equally as noisy as a person standing in front of them trying to talk directly to the person with dementia. Goggles darken and limit vision straight ahead and peripherally, gloves limit feeling in the hands and dull motor skills. Plastic prick ly shoe inserts give the pain someone with dementia might be living with but unable to tell anyone about. A seemingly unhelpful person in the room pretending to not understand your question shows the real struggles people with dementia have communicating every day. Its all disorienting. The experience is eye-open ing for healthcare workers, who, while they understand the clinical symptoms of dementia, have trouble relating those to treatments as theyve never felt or experienced those symp toms themselves. The tour does that for them. Manni said she learned that changing an environment is more impor tant to treating a dementia patient than trying to change the person or their medication. A bright room with low noise and simple furniture and a comforting touch can do won ders, she said. The behaviors of dementia patients, if youre looking at the whole, can be catastrophic sometimes and easily misin terpreted, they can be angry for absolutely no reason that people go through this and understand, this is why theyre angry its very hard to put yourself in their mind and you cant communicate some Manni said that while watching Consulate employ ees go through the simulator, she saw her dementia patients. People with normal brains were wandering around lost in the room they had created for the simulator, sitting alone and covering their heads, get ting upset when no one would help them, not completing the simple tasks they were given because they couldnt hear or couldnt remember what to do seconds later. When you look at a person going through the Virtual Dementia Tour and you over lay observing a person who actually has the disease, the behaviors are almost exactly Thats especially useful for researchers because the simulator experiencers can give insight into the disease by explaining how they felt or why they acted certain ways after a tour, something people with dementia cant do. Bevilles goal with the Vir tual Dementia Tour is to reach all communities, from caregiv ers to grocery store workers, and give them an elevated so cial consciousness and aware ness for those with dementia dementia to remain a part of their communities for as long as possible, treated with under standing and patience. People with dementia cant communi cate that need, so shes doing it for them. Its our intent to help people connect with those who she said. Candice Beaty, manag Dreams, has learned that theres no use yelling at her grandmother, who has demen tia. Yet thats something any one might do absentmindedly when questions and commands surprise her grandmother with a tap on the back or speak too at her in the eye, talk slowly and pay attention when her grandmother speaks or asks a question. It got me to understand that I cant make her under C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE PHOTOS BY SARAH WILSON CENTRAL FLORIDA SENIOR Director of Clinical Education for Consulate Health Care Feryn Lang struggles with simple tasks in the simulator, from folding socks, sorting cards and setting a dinner table.

Page 7 Fully 50 percent of veterans in the Department of Veterans Affairs health-care system suf fer from chronic pain, accord ing to testimony before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs. Thats above the na tional average. The treatment method for serious pain typically has been through the use of prescrip tion opioids, which are habitforming. In at-risk patients, use of these drugs can lead to abuse of the medications theyre sold to others. Other patients are at risk just because of long-term use. The methods to help at-risk veterans start before the drugs are even handed out by improving the training of those who prescribe the drugs and by participation in statelevel prescription monitoring programs. The greatest effort has gone into determining when these opioids are appropriately prescribed when there are multiple medical conditions physical as well as psychologi cal along with the risks for overdose because of a combi nation of the two. One of the VAs drug pro grams is showing great signs Initiative, tested at eight sites in Minnesota, has been shown to reduce the dependency on habit-forming opioids. This is accomplished via education, monitoring, other non-habit-forming drugs and alternative methods such as acupuncture and behavior therapy, as well as using a multi-disciplinary medical team. Patients were offered a trial of non-opioid drugs to test lower doses for pain manage ment. The result: Dependency on high-dose opioids use was reduced by 50 percent. Also in development is a pain-management app for cellphones the selfmanagement VA Pain Coach. The app includes the veterans health library, a management toolkit and assessments. To learn more about the cellphone app, go online to mobilehealth. va.gov/content/pain-coach-app Freddy Groves regrets that he cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into his column whenever possible. Send email to columnreply2@ gmail.com 2013 King Features Synd. Inc. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My 13year-old son went to band ach pain and started to vomit. The instructors were alarmed and took him to the hospi tal, where doctors diagnosed appendicitis. We gave phone permission for him to have an operation. Everything went My wife and I have a few questions. Could he have eaten something that caused appen dicitis? What does not having an appendix do to people? No one in my wifes or my family has had such an operation. Were ignorant about all this. G.G. ANSWER: The appendix the colon in the lower-right side of the abdomen. It looks like a slender worm, and has an average length of 3 inches (8 centimeters). The function of the appendix isnt clearly role in body immunity. Life without an appendix goes on as normally as life with one. The appendix has a hollow core, which is lined with lym phoid tissue, the same kind of tissue found in lymph nodes. Bacteria from the colon can invade the hollow core and cause the lymph tissue to supply, and the appendix begins to disintegrate ap pendicitis. Undigested food or hard fecal material also can block the appendixs core and lead to the same situa tion. Nothing your son ate is likely the cause. All the other campers ate the same food as he, but he was the only one to develop this problem. The pain of appendicitis most often starts in the area of the navel (bellybutton) and works its way toward the lower-right corner of the abdomen. Temperature rises. Vomiting is common, and sometimes diarrhea is part of the picture. A doctor, by what he or she hears from the pa tient, along with the examina tion of the abdomen, usually can make the diagnosis. In confusing circumstances, an ultrasound is most helpful. Millions of people world wide live without an appen will your son. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When I was about 10 years old, I got the mumps. Now I am 30 and have been married for three years. My wife and I want to have a family, but we arent having any luck. Do you think the mumps made me infertile? J.Z. ANSWER: In around 40 percent of men who get the mumps after puberty, the virus also travels to the testicles. That results in impaired fertil ity almost never happens. If both testicles are infected, then sterility might be a problem. Before puberty, testicular involvement is rare, and infer tility isnt a problem. You were only 10. Its highly unlikely that the mumps caused you to be infertile. You and your wife shouldnt have to handle this problem on your own. Why not consult a doctor so both of you can be examined? An answer to the question why you arent having the family you want will be found, and a solution, if possible, will be suggested by the doctor. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Life goes on after your appendix comes out Chronic pain management without addiction By Samantha MazzottaReusing Wood for FlooringQ:Ive been watching some home-improvement shows on television lately that advocate greenbuilding techniques, including reusing wood from other structures for a homes wood flooring,rather than buying new. What do you think about this trend,and how do I go about doing this? Larry in Tempe,Ariz.A:Recycled wood flooring is a good trend,in my opinion, because rather than chopping down live trees to supply the hardwood for your floor,wood from many types of disused structures or other sources of salvaged lumber can be remilled to give it a second life. There is some concern that the current stock of highquality salvaged wood will run out eventually,but no timetable has been given for that. Recycled hardwood is often of better quality than new hardwoods. Its been curing for many years,resulting in a tighter grain and more stability. Also, much of the current stock of recycled wood originally came from oldgrowth forests,most of which either no longer exist or are protected,and so youre getting high-quality denseness and stability that most new woods cant match. One thing it is not,however,is cheap. Recycled hardwood costs much more than new (Toolbase Services estimates that it runs about $5.75 to $11 per square foot,while new oak flooring runs about $3 per square foot). Recycled wood also must be installed by a professional. Despite the cost,recycled wood tends to be beautiful and durable and a nice conversation piece at parties. If youre interested in having it installed, many flooring contractors are able to procure and install recycled wood. You should check with more than one contractor,though,get estimates,and ideally work with someone who specializes in recycled wood-flooring installation.

Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475.2009 King Features Synd.,Inc.All types of wood floors need the same type of care: Wipe up liquid spills immediately, dont use harsh cleaners or oil soaps,and sweep,dust mop or vacuum regularly to prevent grit from dulling the finish.Dogs Help Vets Cope With PTSDTheres new ammo in the hunt for a fix for post-traumatic stress disorder. For some veterans,the answers lie in dogs. But not just any dogs. Specially trained dogs are being given to some veterans suffering from PTSD,and in many cases,its working. When out in public,the dogspresence invites social conversation,yet they will place themselves physically between someone approaching and the veteran,who is likely to still be leery of contact. With the dogs,veterans find that theyre able to leave home without fear and can slowly transition to a more normal life. Many of the dogs are trained in prisons in the Puppies Behind Bars program,where they spend a year with specially trained prisoners [www.puppiesbehindbars.com]. To turn the tables a bit,a group called Paws for Purple Hearts [www.assistancedog.org] allows veterans with PTSD to become trainers for dogs that will assist veterans with physical disabilities. Run by Bergin University in California,the Paws program gives a needed sense of purpose to veterans with PTSD,as well as the grounding and self-worth that come from knowing theyre working to help someone else. In this case its a veteran with physical disabilities. For more information,call PPH at 707545-3647 ext. 28. Steps also are being taken to head PTSD off at the pass,again using dogs. Combat Stress Teams in Iraq and Afghanistan are shipped over with therapy dogs that quickly become popular with service personnel. The dogs serve,among other things,as icebreakers and stress relievers,inviting conversations that might otherwise not take place. For a real treat,do an Internet search for Boe and Budge,two therapy dogs that were sent to Iraq with a stress team. Write to Freddy Groves in care of King Features Weekly Service,P.O.

Thats what prompted residents like Ernie and Ann Cross to plan ahead and proactively make the move ... because they wanted to, not because they needed to. How about you? The room was dark and blurry, and a constant trickle of pain radiated from my feet. I was being told some simple tasks to complete, but I couldnt hear much of the in structions because of the other cacophony of noises blasting in my ears the white noise of a television with lost signal, the jabbering of voices of intelligible words, and the oc casional sharp siren that made me jump. I told the instructor I couldnt hear, but all I got Couldnt she understand me? I had already been told that no help would be given, but Id somehow already forgotten that. I knew I had to fold some towels, so I began doing that. taken so long to do something so simple in my adult life. skills, struggled over and over looked more like a lump of material than the normal crisp square I had aimed to create. I was frustrated and emotional. I didnt know why, but I almost wanted to cry. The siren blared again; my hands, startled, lost grip of the towel. This is as close as a person with a normal brain can get to experiencing dementia. I dont have dementia, but the Virtual Dementia Tour, created by P.K. Beville, a special ist in geriatrics with more than 30 years of experience and Wind Dreams, has put me and more than 1 million people in the shoes of someone with the disease. The 10 minutes are unnerving and eye-opening. Many, including healthcare professionals, have said they could have never imagined that this is what life was like for a person with dementia. Consulate Health Care, a provider of senior healthcare services based in Maitland where I experienced the simulator, brought the tour to its employees so that they can provide more understanding, compassionate care. We can teach a lot of knowledge, but you really need to experience it your self to have the empathy for said Mia Manni, a registered nurse and vice president of clinical outcomes management for Consulate Health Care.

Kaiser Health News took a look recently at some of the possibilities of remote monitoring by high-tech into your cellphone and allow your doctor to keep track of your health, For example, if your heart rate accelerates while youre doing your daily errands, the doctor will know it devices can tell whether were taking tress on our bed to check breathing our glucose levels or blood pressure. Thats not to say most doctors are jumping on these devices as being the latest and greatest. While they like the information that can be gathered, some doctors are concerned about pa tient privacy. The information doesnt go straight into patient records, but the day eventually will come when it will. At this point, patients must give permission for their information to be taken and must go into the doctors themselves over the Internet. In a preview of coming events, one device developer is already hooked up with advertisers and labs. Insurance companies are encouraging patients to upload their information from other devices. Many of the devices are not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Are you nervous about this yet? What if you knew your information would go over the Internet, or if you knew it wasnt always covered by health privacy laws? If youre asked to wear one of these new gadgets, ask questions about where the information goes ... lots and lots of questions.

Inc. High-tech gadgets track our health Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475.

DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights Reserved How Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

If it wasnt before, its certainly clear now why the nations super-rich oligarchs work relentlessly to sabo tage the Obama presidency. to expand overtime pay and thwart a system that effec tively cheats employees out of what theyve earned. Its just one example of how he and his administration are a threat to the few who have burrowed into our legal framework to get away with their shame less tactics to hoard the other peoples money. Their overtime scam is particularly sleazy. What they have been allowed to do by lawmakers and regulators is declare low-level workers to be supervisors if they oversee fellow employees as just a tiny part of their job, while they actually spend nearly all their time performing the same tasks. By designating them salaried, the corporate mas ters are able to get around the long-standing requirement that working more than 40 hours a week results in time-and-ahalf compensation. Right now, the Bush-era pay dividing line is $455 per week. This president has directed his Labor Department to increase that to an as-yetundetermined amount saying, Were going to update those overtime rules to restore that basic principle that if you have to work more, you should be That would seem to be fairly straightforward, but not in todays setup.

Page 6 DEMENTIA | Inside the dementia simulator, simple tasks become nearly impossible as confusion sets in represent two-thirds of Ameri cans living with the disease and there are 2.5 times more women than men working to provide the intensive 24-hoursa-day care for a loved one with Alzheimers. The symptoms of dementia are incredibly disrupting to daily life. Theres memory loss, loss of problem solving and reasoning skills, and normal tasks such as folding laundry become almost impossible. Those with dementia experience confusion with time or place, changes in mood and personality, and have trouble joining or follow ing a conversation. The tour was created using Bevilles 30 years of clinical observation of people with de mentia and how their caregiv ers respond to their behavior, and studies of brain scans to see where the damage was on dementia patients to determine ways to mimic that damage and create those behaviors in people with normal brains. At the tour, participants enter a dim room with strobe simple tasks to complete folding laundry and setting a table. Headphones pump in loud noises to block out all other sound to represent the loss of ability to differentiate each noises importance. For example, a television left on across the room would be equally as noisy as a person standing in front of them trying to talk directly to the person with dementia. Goggles darken and limit vision straight ahead and peripherally, gloves limit feeling in the hands and dull motor skills. Plastic prick ly shoe inserts give the pain someone with dementia might be living with but unable to tell anyone about. A seemingly unhelpful person in the room pretending to not understand your question shows the real struggles people with dementia have communicating every day. Its all disorienting. The experience is eye-open ing for healthcare workers, who, while they understand the clinical symptoms of dementia, have trouble relating those to treatments as theyve never felt or experienced those symp toms themselves. The tour does that for them. Manni said she learned that changing an environment is more impor tant to treating a dementia patient than trying to change the person or their medication. A bright room with low noise and simple furniture and a comforting touch can do won ders, she said. The behaviors of dementia patients, if youre looking at the whole, can be catastrophic sometimes and easily misin terpreted, they can be angry for absolutely no reason that people go through this and understand, this is why theyre angry its very hard to put yourself in their mind and you cant communicate some Manni said that while watching Consulate employ ees go through the simulator, she saw her dementia patients. People with normal brains were wandering around lost in the room they had created for the simulator, sitting alone and covering their heads, get ting upset when no one would help them, not completing the simple tasks they were given because they couldnt hear or couldnt remember what to do seconds later. When you look at a person going through the Virtual Dementia Tour and you over lay observing a person who actually has the disease, the behaviors are almost exactly Thats especially useful for researchers because the simulator experiencers can give insight into the disease by explaining how they felt or why they acted certain ways after a tour, something people with dementia cant do. Bevilles goal with the Vir tual Dementia Tour is to reach all communities, from caregiv ers to grocery store workers, and give them an elevated so cial consciousness and aware ness for those with dementia dementia to remain a part of their communities for as long as possible, treated with under standing and patience. People with dementia cant communi cate that need, so shes doing it for them. Its our intent to help people connect with those who she said. Candice Beaty, manag Dreams, has learned that theres no use yelling at her grandmother, who has demen tia. Yet thats something any one might do absentmindedly when questions and commands surprise her grandmother with a tap on the back or speak too at her in the eye, talk slowly and pay attention when her grandmother speaks or asks a question.

Page 7 Fully 50 percent of veterans in the Department of Veterans Affairs health-care system suf fer from chronic pain, accord ing to testimony before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs. Thats above the national average. The treatment method for serious pain typically has been through the use of prescrip tion opioids, which are habitforming. In at-risk patients, use of these drugs can lead to abuse of the medications theyre sold to others. Other patients are at risk just because of long-term use. The methods to help at-risk veterans start before the drugs are even handed out by improving the training of those who prescribe the drugs and by participation in statelevel prescription monitoring programs. The greatest effort has gone into determining when these opioids are appropriately prescribed when there are multiple medical conditions physical as well as psychologi cal along with the risks for overdose because of a combi nation of the two. One of the VAs drug pro grams is showing great signs Initiative, tested at eight sites in Minnesota, has been shown to reduce the dependency on habit-forming opioids. This is accomplished via education, monitoring, other non-habit-forming drugs and alternative methods such as acupuncture and behavior therapy, as well as using a multi-disciplinary medical team. Patients were offered a trial of non-opioid drugs to test lower doses for pain manage ment. The result: Dependency on high-dose opioids use was reduced by 50 percent. Also in development is a pain-management app for cellphones the selfmanagement VA Pain Coach. The app includes the veterans health library, a management toolkit and assessments.

The instructors were alarmed and took him to the hospi tal, where doctors diagnosed appendicitis. We gave phone permission for him to have an operation. Everything went My wife and I have a few questions. Could he have eaten something that caused appen dicitis? What does not having an appendix do to people? No one in my wifes or my family has had such an operation. Were ignorant about all this. G.G. ANSWER: The appendix the colon in the lower-right side of the abdomen. It looks like a slender worm, and has an average length of 3 inches (8 centimeters). The function of the appendix isnt clearly role in body immunity. Life without an appendix goes on as normally as life with one. The appendix has a hollow core, which is lined with lym phoid tissue, the same kind of tissue found in lymph nodes. Bacteria from the colon can invade the hollow core and cause the lymph tissue to supply, and the appendix begins to disintegrate ap pendicitis. Undigested food or hard fecal material also can block the appendixs core and lead to the same situa tion. Nothing your son ate is likely the cause. All the other campers ate the same food as he, but he was the only one to develop this problem. The pain of appendicitis most often starts in the area of the navel (bellybutton) and works its way toward the lower-right corner of the abdomen. Temperature rises. Vomiting is common, and sometimes diarrhea is part of the picture. A doctor, by what he or she hears from the pa tient, along with the examina tion of the abdomen, usually can make the diagnosis. In confusing circumstances, an ultrasound is most helpful. Millions of people world wide live without an appen will your son. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When I was about 10 years old, I got the mumps. Now I am 30 and have been married for three years. My wife and I want to have a family, but we arent having any luck. Do you think the mumps made me infertile? J.Z. ANSWER: In around 40 percent of men who get the mumps after puberty, the virus also travels to the testicles. That results in impaired fertil ity almost never happens. If both testicles are infected, then sterility might be a problem. Before puberty, testicular involvement is rare, and infer tility isnt a problem. You were only 10. Its highly unlikely that the mumps caused you to be infertile. You and your wife shouldnt have to handle this problem on your own. Why not consult a doctor so both of you can be examined? An answer to the question why you arent having the family you want will be found, and a solution, if possible, will be suggested by the doctor. en Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

What do you think about this trend,and how do I go about doing this? Larry in Tempe,Ariz.A:Recycled wood flooring is a good trend,in my opinion, because rather than chopping down live trees to supply the hardwood for your floor,wood from many types of disused structures or other sources of salvaged lumber can be remilled to give it a second life. There is some concern that the current stock of highquality salvaged wood will run out eventually,but no timetable has been given for that. Recycled hardwood is often of better quality than new hardwoods. Its been curing for many years,resulting in a tighter grain and more stability. Also, much of the current stock of recycled wood originally came from oldgrowth forests,most of which either no longer exist or are protected,and so youre getting high-quality denseness and stability that most new woods cant match. One thing it is not,however,is cheap. Recycled hardwood costs much more than new (Toolbase Services estimates that it runs about $5.75 to $11 per square foot,while new oak flooring runs about $3 per square foot). Recycled wood also must be installed by a professional. Despite the cost,recycled wood tends to be beautiful and durable and a nice conversation piece at parties. If youre interested in having it installed, many flooring contractors are able to procure and install recycled wood. You should check with more than one contractor,though,get estimates,and ideally work with someone who specializes in recycled wood-flooring installation.

For some veterans,the answers lie in dogs. But not just any dogs. Specially trained dogs are being given to some veterans suffering from PTSD,and in many cases,its working. When out in public,the dogspresence invites social conversation,yet they will place themselves physically between someone approaching and the veteran,who is likely to still be leery of contact. With the dogs,veterans find that theyre able to leave home without fear and can slowly transition to a more normal life. Many of the dogs are trained in prisons in the Puppies Behind Bars program,where they spend a year with specially trained prisoners [www.puppiesbehindbars.com]. To turn the tables a bit,a group called Paws for Purple Hearts [www.assistancedog.org] allows veterans with PTSD to become trainers for dogs that will assist veterans with physical disabilities. Run by Bergin University in California,the Paws program gives a needed sense of purpose to veterans with PTSD,as well as the grounding and self-worth that come from knowing theyre working to help someone else. In this case its a veteran with physical disabilities. For more information,call PPH at 707545-3647 ext. 28. Steps also are being taken to head PTSD off at the pass,again using dogs. Combat Stress Teams in Iraq and Afghanistan are shipped over with therapy dogs that quickly become popular with service personnel. The dogs serve,among other things,as icebreakers and stress relievers,inviting conversations that might otherwise not take place.
