Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2016

breast-cancer-ribbonThis October, River Oaks Home Care is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer is the second most common kind of cancer in women and early detection results in higher chances of  beating the disease.

River Oaks Homecare is reaching out to all women in their late 30’s and upwards. Let’s listen to our bodies. Make an appointment for your physical examination today and if you are in your 40’s upwards, make sure you have your annual mammogram scheduled. Also, if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer, your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms done.

Recent studies have also shown most cancers aren’t inherited,only about 5% – 10% are. Let’s start by living a healthy lifestyle, making better healthy choices and striving to do the best we can on an everyday basis.

Three Essential Questions to ask your Senior Home Care Provider.

Three Essential questions to ask to ensure the company you choose has a strong set of core values:

  • CommunicationWill I be able to easily communicate with the personal care attendant and have continued access to my care manager? This is the core of River Oaks Home Care’s approach.  We believe that you should never feel there is a lack of control or communication with your personal care attendant. For this reason, you are assigned a care manager who is always available.
  • IntegrityHas a sense of trust been established? At River Oaks Home Care, we believe this is the key to a comfortable relationship and the well-being of the client. That is why we carefully screen all our personal care attendants and provide a written contract.
  • PerformanceAm I confident I will get the professional care promised and that there will be accountability and follow up? Home care is dynamic; a family’s needs can change daily. You chose home care to allow your loved one to remain independent and retain their quality of life, not to endure more paperwork and problem solving. We make a simple promise: We will be there for your family.
