PACIFIC MEDICAL GROUP  - Schedule an appointment today.Did you know that women are 100 percent more likely to visit the doctor for annual examinations and preventive services than men?

“There is a silent health crisis in America. It’s the fact that, on average, American men live sicker and die younger than American women,” said Dr. David Gremillion of Men’s Health Network, the non-profit that sponsors Men’s Health Month each June.

Though many prefer to “tough it out” when they feel unwell, men owe it to themselves and their families to get regular medical checkups and screenings and to follow through with doctors’ recommendations.

Men are more at risk than women to suffer from heart disease, cancer, injuries, stroke, depression, hearing loss and other afflictions. More than 30,000 men die of prostate cancer each year.

“Just like taking the car in for an oil change or for the 25,000-mile checkup, men also need to take themselves to the doctor’s office to make sure everything is running smoothly,” Gremillion added. “That’s why Men’s Health Network created this campaign – to help men keep track of how often to check their blood pressure, get a tetanus booster and check their testosterone levels.”

Here’s a guide that outlines how often to get checkups: www.menshealthnetwork.org/library/getitcheckedpostermen.pdf

Pacific Medical Group’s five clinics have each been recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home by the NCQA and the State of Oregon, which means they offer enhanced, coordinated medical care for their patients.

CRESCENT GROVE CEMETERY & MAUSOLEUM - Nancy FeltonAt Crescent Grove Cemetery and Mausoleum, we are always available to answer your questions and listen to your concerns. Here are some common concerns:

Q. How much notice do you require for a burial?   

A. Generally 3-4 days, depending on the family's specific or culture needs, but a minimum of 48 hours.

Q. What choices are there to honor our loved ones who choose cremation?

A. We allow cremated remains to be buried in a traditional casket grave, urn garden, inurned into a niche/columbarium which may or may not be in a mausoleum, or our scatter gardens.

Q. We are a couple. One of us wants to be cremated and the other casket burial. Is there any way we can be together in death, as we were in life?

A. Yes, you would need one grave or mausoleum space.  If the person who prefers cremation passes away first, we would place the cremated remains under where the headstone will be, so in the future when we open the grave for the casket burial, we will not disturb the cremated remains. Should it be reversed, we would place the cremated remains on top of the outer burial container for the casket.

Q. When would a headstone be installed?

A. Headstones are purchased when the family is ready to do so. Most order right away, but some families wait weeks, months, sometimes years. 

Q. Who installs the monument?

A. Cemetery staff or the granite company install the monuments, depending on size.

ACCOUNTAX OF OREGON - Annette SaarinenSo you're halfway through the tax year for 2016. Yes, really!

While your 2015 taxes were due just a few months ago, it’s time to take a look at how this year is shaping up for your business or personal taxes.

At AccounTax, we call this a “mid-year review,” which helps take the stress out of next year’s returns — and a lot more.

Review what’s happened and make corrections — Two quarterly tax payments have come and gone. Mid-year is a good time to see what you’ve paid in estimated taxes and balance projections, using actual numbers. The next quarterly estimate is due Sept. 15.

Track where your money is going – daily. More than a monthly reconciliation, knowing where your money is every day means your business or household can be nimble enough to make corrections within the next six months. To accomplish that, you’ll need an accounting program or detailed spreadsheet, you can see where money is flowing both in and out.

Review capital expenses and plan for deductions — Section 179 is a portion of the tax code that allows business owners to deduct the full expenses of a capital purchase immediately, rather than depreciating the cost over a period of time. To take advantage of this tax opportunity, business owners must understand the tax differences between taking the deduction versus offsetting it into future years. Performing a financial review in July allows your business six months to plan for capital expenditures and strategic purchases.

Brought to you by Griffin Hampson - Cartridge-Network - PRINTER, INK & TONER INSIDER -


CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonDo “bargain” (cheap) printers save you money? Rarely. Consumers and businesses are sold printers and buy on price, without understanding a printer’s actual cost-per-page (CPP).

Office supply stores, warehouse clubs (limited selection / knowledge) and general merchandise big chain stores (limited selection / knowledge), have printers “on special” for $60 or $70 with $40, $50+ in savings from “regular pricing”. Buyer beware. The least expensive printers have higher CPP. You’ll spend more money for cartridges with a high CPP.

Fully costed CPP costs range as follows: inkjet from $0.05 - $0.30+, black laser from $0.01 to $0.05, color laser from $0.06 to $0.25.

Spending $30 or $40 more on a better inkjet model, or $100 for a laser printer now, saves hundreds (or thousands) of dollars over time, because CPP costs are significantly lower. There are several superior performing and low CPP inkjet printers currently available for about $100. Why save $40 or $50 for an inferior printer?

And remember if you’re interested in factory remanufactured or compatible cartridges, buying the newest printer, which replaced a virtually identical model, means only OEM cartridges are available for a year or more, so you can’t reduce further your CPP for quite a while, with aftermarket cartridges.

How we approach customers’ printer purchases: know your “needs” vs. “wants”. Color vs. black only?, copy & scan?, wireless?, duplexing? Routine volumes (measured by reams of paper), user(s) environment. Call or stop by our store to learn how to get the most value for your money.

PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING - RIVERWOOD - Askol SaieediOlder couples sometimes find that running a household, taking care of themselves and each other has become too much of a burden.

Prestige Care communities offer options for couples, even when level-of-care requirements differ.

Couples can choose studio or one-bedroom apartments. All have kitchenettes with compact-sized refrigerator/freezers and microwaves. All meals are served in the dining room, unless a resident is unwell or requests to have room trays delivered to them as part of their service plan.

For each resident, regardless of marital status or cohabitation, a level-of-care assessment is done. A comprehensive service plan is tailored to each, with all activities of daily living considered — including dressing, bathing, grooming, elimination, mobility, reminders and medication management.

Care needs are assessed and a service plan is developed for each of our residents. Certain services cannot be supported in Assisted Living and require Skilled Nursing or Alzheimer’s care. When in search of a community to live in, make sure to ask for details about next-level care.

We invite you to visit our community for a free tour. Call today to reserve a time!

SPECIALTY HEATING - Norm MatheisHave an older home-cooling system? Energy.gov suggests looking for the following warning signs to determine whether your system needs maintenance, repair or replacement:

Refrigerant leaks — If your air conditioner is low on refrigerant, either it was undercharged at installation or it leaks. Simply adding refrigerant is not a solution. A trained technician should fix any leak, test the repair, and then charge the system with the correct amount of refrigerant. The performance and efficiency of your air conditioner is greatest when the refrigerant charge exactly matches the manufacturer's specification.

Inadequate maintenance — When filters and air conditioning coils become dirty, the air conditioner will not work properly, and the compressor or fans are likely to fail prematurely.

Electric control failure — The compressor and fan controls can wear out, especially when the air conditioner turns on and off frequently, as is common when a system is oversized. Because corrosion of wire and terminals is also a problem in many systems, electrical connections and contacts should be checked during a professional service call.

Sensor problems — Room air conditioners feature a thermostat sensor, located behind the control panel, which measures the temperature of air coming into the evaporative coil. If the sensor is knocked out of position, the air conditioner could cycle constantly or behave erratically.

Drainage problems — When it's humid outside, check the condensate drain to make sure it isn't clogged and is draining properly. Room air conditioners may not drain properly if not mounted level.

FIT ACADEMY - Jarod CogswellThe fitness industry is exploding with an array of options and choosing the right facility can be confusing.

There are now so many studios competing for their share of the fitness market featuring specific disciplines such as yoga, barre, personal training, and boot camps.

And of course, the franchise gyms, low-priced chain facilities, and full-service clubs continue to offer traditional fitness and then some.

 So which one should you choose? Some factors to consider:

Price

What can you afford? What type of value do you put on your personal health? Be realistic about your budget, but remember, you get what you pay for. Higher rates usually relate to better service and quality fitness experiences.

Your Health and Fitness Goals

Whether your goal is to lose weight, improve athletically, connect with new friends, or learn a new activity, choose the environment best suited for you. Do you like to exercise with other people? Do you prefer one-on-one training? Would you rather keep to yourself? The best facilities focus on building a motivating culture to help you reach your goals.

The Intangibles

Consistent exercise is challenging for most people. Unfortunately, the fitness industry has a less-than-stellar reputation when it comes to providing a clean and supportive environment.

This impacts the exercise experience, so be selective. Tour the facilities. Meet the staff and members. If you can envision happiness and being sincerely cared for, you probably have found the place for your fitness journey to continue or begin.

WOODLAND HEIGHTS ASSISTED LIVING - Linda ElderWe’ve long felt that the term “life enrichment” encompasses the true essence and value of activities provided in senior facilities.

Most of our residents move from their own homes or apartments, where they have become somewhat sedentary and often alone much of the time.

Socialization and human interaction are well documented in thousands of studies as critical to maintain both mental and physical well-being.

The concept of what an “activity” should be has changed over the years at Woodland Heights, as we constantly strive to improve for the benefit of those entrusted to our care.

We have studied and observed the attendance and preferences of our residents and were led to alter our approach to scheduling activities.

We are guided not by what we think they should want to do or what they have always done, but by asking what they want now.

This has created a variety of choices from large musical entertainment to small two- to three-person groups. When we set shopping days, we ask where they would like to go.

Once a schedule is created, it remains fluid and changeable -- not the same week after week.

Indeed, this takes more time, but it allows us to meet the needs of those residents who want consistency in the programs they enjoy and look forward to while still providing experience for those who want new adventures and stimulation or learning opportunities.

BEEBE CHIROPRACTIC & WELLNESS CENTER - Dr. Daniel BeebeMore than 100 million people in the U.S. suffer from chronic pain.

Tragically, a growing number of Americans have turned to opioid pain relievers such as hydrocodone (Vicodin) and oxycodone, escalating from about 76 million prescriptions in 1991 to nearly 207 million in 2013, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

In May, the U.S. House of Representatives passed 18 bills related to opioids; in March, the U.S. Senate approved a comprehensive bill. While most of the House bills were related to further prescriber education, there were several that could lead to enhanced roles for the nation's doctors of chiropractic in battling this scourge.

The American Chiropractic Association lauds the passage of the bills as a major first step in combating the nation's opioid epidemic. An important next step, according to the association, is expanding access to conservative treatments such as chiropractic care for pain relief in the country's health care system.

In an effort to provide life-changing and life-saving information, Beebe Chiropractic & Wellness Center is offering six free classes at its clinic on Tuesday evenings, from 6 pm to 7:15 pm.

Topics include: What is health? Is there a health crisis in America? Models of health care in America. How stress may adversely affect health and how to combat it. Innovative ways to address and identify stress. America’s report card on health.

COMFORCARE - Marissa Phillips, ComForCareQ: How do I know that the caregiver I choose will be the best for my mom?

A: Great question!

When hiring an individual as a caregiver, there is a lot of research you should do before becoming the person’s employer.

· You need to make sure you’ve done a thorough criminal background check, called the person’s references, maybe even talked to prior clients for whom they’ve worked.

· Does this individual have the skills needed to manage your loved one’s complex issues that seem to get worse as they age?

· What if the hired individual isn’t doing the job properly? How do I fire the person?

These scenarios run through your mind all the time when you employ an individual caregiver.

By having an agency on board, we handle all of this for you and more. We screen the employees, only bringing the best on board.

We meet your loved one and do our best to get a caregiver with the right skills and personality to match your situation.

Our Registered Nurse and Administrative team work 24/7 to ensure that there is ongoing support and training, right at your home, where it is needed.

If you have trouble, call ComForCare and we will manage it for you.

Q FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Quenton GebeauOur team at Q Family Dental will tell you brushing on a regular basis is critical for a healthy mouth, but you can definitely overdo a good thing.

Known as “toothbrush abrasion,” over-brushing can lead to sensitive teeth and receding gums, not to mention the wearing down of the protective layers of your tooth enamel. Over-brushing can also push back your gums, and in the process, expose the dentin layer under the enamel.

“So, how do I avoid over-brushing?”

Use a soft or extra-soft bristled toothbrush to prevent gum damage and wear on the soft tooth dentin

Keep in mind which direction bristles face when you brush. They should be perpendicular, not parallel. Place the head of your toothbrush with the tips of the bristles at a 45-degree angle to the gum line and brush away!

Move the toothbrush with short strokes and a scrubbing motion, several times in each spot – don’t saw back and forth across the teeth with your toothbrush.

Apply just enough pressure to feel the bristles against the gums. If you are squashing the bristles, you're brushing too hard.

Replace your toothbrush when you notice frayed and bent bristles.

Brush for two minutes at a time.

If you have any questions about proper brushing techniques, ask us about it at your next appointment or give us a call today!

GENTOG - Marcie JonesWe all need a little inspiration. I’ve found that it is helpful to have a book or two on the bedside table that I can reach for when my spirits need a lift. Today I have 3 book suggestions for family caregivers.

Creating Moments of Joy by Jolene Brackey, encourages us to look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's disease and focus more of our energy on creating moments of joy. We can’t always create a perfect day with someone who has dementia, but it is absolutely attainable to create some wonderful moments. This is an easy to read book, full of ideas and inspiration.

Color Yourself Happy was created by local artist Tara Reed. It is a coloring book for grown-ups who want to focus on being happy. Every picture has the word "Happy" in it. Just like in life, sometimes it is large and easy to spot and other times it's small and hidden. This book features 50 happy illustrations - 25 sayings and 25 designs. Coloring can be very therapeutic!

Bring Back the Fun by Marcie Jones is a compilation of ideas from my personal experience as the primary caregiver for my Gram, as well as the ideas that are used successfully every day at Gentog. The reading of this book is intended to be fun as well...it is written from the perspective of the person with dementia...mostly in the voice of my feisty Gram. You are sure to find several ideas that you can put to use right away. 

All of these titles can be purchased through Amazon.com. Life as a caregiver really can include the words Joy, Happy and Fun…find out how with these books.
