CQC Safeguarding

0 Comments

The safeguarding protocol is a key priority for the CQC. Their aim is to protect and promote the rights of those who are most in need. Whether they are children, young people or adults whose circumstances make them vulnerable. Social care providers play an important role in the protection of members of the public from harm and are responsible for ensuring that services and support are delivered safely and to the highest quality.
According to the Social Care Institute of Excellence, safeguarding encompasses six key concepts: empowerment, protection, prevention, proportionate responses, partnership and accountability. Although they have their own protocol, the CQC wish to see these things delivered to those using the services that social care provides.
Whether services are provided by the NHS, local authorities, private companies or voluntary organisations, the CQC make sure that people get better care. They aim to do this by:

Don’t Give In To Your Inner Victim
Times are tough in America, and the recent actions of the federal government indicate things will be getting worse before they get better. Each move toward collective statism, including the president’s recent announcement that he’ll circumvent Congress and the U.S. Constitution by granting amnesty to (likely) millions of illegal aliens, makes it harder to see how a person can take hold of the American dream of liberty and prosperity.
The reason life is tough-getting-tougher in America is that the nation is divided. Deeply divided. One side wants what the nation’s founders wanted: opportunity. The opportunity, free from interference from government or any other worldly power, to live and pursue happiness. When that side is firmly in charge of things in America, more strength and prosperity is created than has been under any other “system” in human history.
But there’s another side, and they …

Private Label Organic Skin Care: Take Care Of Your Body

0 Comments

Which skin care product do you use? The question seems bizarre because most people use branded products that are liked by many. But you should know what your soap, face wash, moisturizer and sunscreen lotion contains. It is possible that you are bathing with chemical rich soap that is doing more harm than benefit to your soft skin. But if you are using private label organic skin care then there are no apprehensions.
The difference between ordinary beauty products and organic formulas is that the former contains synthetics, while the latter has plant extracts. It is better to use green products than chemical rich goods. Organic soaps and moisturizers are good for you skin. They contain nutrients found in nature. The best thing about green goods is that they have no preservatives or added colors or fragrances.
Most people are unaware of the presence of the green beauty products in …

Becoming Clear About Your Weight Loss Goal

0 Comments

As a health and weight loss coach, I meet clients who have big weight loss goals. After asking them a few questions, I find out that these clients are pretty unclear about what they want and they will give up on their goals before they even start. Goals only turn into reality once you become clear about it!
The first part of the goal is finding out how much weight they want to release. That is the easy part. The next part of the goal is finding out how they are going to maintain that weight because in the end that is what they want, isn’t it? By far most clients only focus on the weight loss and forget about maintenance. In fact, statistics state that 90{85749dbeb316c0c24e3d1d8256d88d9743ccf0cc93f2eb8c87e0d763618d2741} of people gain their weight back. Why? We go back to our old habits and behaviours and blame the diet instead of looking …

Medical Bill Help: Protecting Yourself From Health Care Fraud

0 Comments

It’s no secret that most Americans pay a lot for nearly any kind of medical care, but a close look at factors that are driving higher health care prices in the U.S. reveals more about why medical care is so expensive these days. One element that you may not think about is health care fraud and how it impacts you.
The Cost of Fraud
Reports from health care experts show that Americans may be paying up to $80 billion per year because of health care fraud. That’s out of 2 trillion dollars spent annually, including a federal Medicare program that is estimated to be worth about $450 billion, with 44 million beneficiaries on the books.
Government entitlement programs contribute quite a bit to the problem – not necessarily because of the programs themselves but because of the abuse by disreputable providers. Because of the unique reimbursement rules for these programs, …

So, Is Coffee Good for You, Bad for You, Or Does Anyone Really Know?

It seems there are always stories in the media about the effects of coffee and caffeine. Some tell of challenges to your health, others boast about how healthy it can be for your mind, preventing early onset Alzheimer’s, or improving memory. Some say coffee is good for your heart, some say it’s bad. Sometimes I wonder if it isn’t who is paying for the study that determines what the results will be, or how those results are displayed in a positive or negative light?
Recently in the BBC Health News Online there was a troubling article about Coffee and Strokes on May 5, 2011. The article was titled; “Sex and Coffee Trigger Stroke” by James Gallagher a Health reporter from BBC News. In the teaser paragraph it stated: “Coffee, sex and blowing your nose could increase the risk of a type of stroke, say researchers in the Netherlands.” Of course, …

How to Beat an Acne Outbreak

Introduction – Acne is a common, in fact, predominant skin disorder that affects all nations, races and genders regardless of their ethnic backgrounds geographical location or environmental conditions. The resulting impact is even more troublesome. According to a recent survey done in US, about 25{85749dbeb316c0c24e3d1d8256d88d9743ccf0cc93f2eb8c87e0d763618d2741} of adults and 31{85749dbeb316c0c24e3d1d8256d88d9743ccf0cc93f2eb8c87e0d763618d2741} of teens surveyed said that acne sometimes keeps them from participating in social activities. It has been. Today, dermatologists have a consensus that only few people survive their teen years without suffering at least an occasional acne break-out. For many, acne continues into their adult years, causing embarrassment and prompting the sufferer to search the cosmetic counters for means to cover the spots.
Acne statistics for the age – According to general statistics, acne usually starts around puberty and lasts until adulthood, although it can persist for many more years, regardless of age. Similarly, baby acne affects approximately 20{85749dbeb316c0c24e3d1d8256d88d9743ccf0cc93f2eb8c87e0d763618d2741} of newborn …

Understanding the Process of a Healing Crisis

0 Comments

In this day and age we are faced with what I call the “modern man’s diet”, which is a way of life that promotes unhealthy eating plus other bad habits. Use morning as an example. Typically people are in a hurry to get to work or school, miss breakfast and therefore grab something on the way to work, often at a fast food restaurant. What implication does this have to our health? Most fast food is high in saturated fat, salt or sugar and generally not the healthiest breakfast you can have to start your day. The other side of the coin is eating fast and on the go, which plays havoc with the digestion.
On top of this we have the stress factor due to work, private life, environmental and unhealthy eating. All these contribute to a build up of toxins over time causing disease.
Many people are now …
