Sleep and Disease

Studies show that there is a strong correlation between sleep and certain diseases. A lack of sleep can play a role in diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity, and depression. Sleep duration can predict levels of hemoglobin A1c which is responsible of blood sugar control. Common physiological characteristics are seen between sleep apnea and atherosclerosis, causing the correlation between sleep and cardiovascular disease. Interestingly, sleep plays a role in brain development, in result insufficient sleep can affect parts of the brain that control appetite and depression.

The Job of a Case Manager

What does a case manager do? They wear multiple hats! A case manager is there for assistance for their clients. Together, case managers assist their clients in creating goals, case plans, resource needs, and financial plans. Monitoring progress for the cases and aiming for success for their clients are goals of their own. A goal of the case managers is to assist their clients with their needs to live life to their fullest by connecting them to resources, become an advocate for their client, and a goal-oriented improvement in their case needs. Don’t forget to celebrate our case managers this month!case manager picture blog

The people I've worked with have been so straightforward and honest. They really care about how it's going. The caregiver is very understanding, knowledgeable. He can see ahead and makes some suggestions. I can leave if I need without the least bit of worry. He is really proactive, I know he cares and trust him impeccably.

It has taken a great load off of our shoulders, especially mine. It has helped my health as well and gives my husband some social time. They are really good at scheduling around our schedule and are matched very well to his needs. We always recommend them to others who need care.

My caregiver is wonderful. I wish I could have more time. They do so much for me that I can't do for myself. They spend a few minutes to talk with me and be social. They are very open, caring, patient, outgoing, understanding, and kind people. If I need help with anything they will always help me. They are so helpful. I don't know what I'd do without their services.
