MAGNOLIA INNOVATIVE SENIOR LIVING - Amanda ShieldsCaring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s disease can be incredibly physically and emotionally challenging. Alzheimer’s is an incurable and progressive disease which can span anywhere from 4-20 years. Although most of us desire to keep our loved ones at home with us, there will often come a time in the course of Alzheimer’s when an Alzheimer’s patient will require more care than your family is able to provide.

It is important early in the disease process to plan ahead – this can include truly understanding the options for different types of care, the financial burden this can bring, and the emotional toll it can take when you do need to look at other options for care.

The options for care can range from hiring private caregivers in your own home, to placing your loved one in a facility – either an Assisted Living Facility, a Memory Care Unit, or an Adult Foster Home. It is so important to understand the different levels of care these facilities can provide and the advantages and disadvantages each has to offer, as well as the cost of each facility.

It is never too early to plan ahead; talking with your loved one’s medical provider is also an important part – they can provide you with key information on what to expect as the disease progresses and can help guide you to support groups and information that will help with your planning.

Asking for the assistance of a professional who has a complete understanding of the disease process and care options available is an invaluable asset. Magnolia Innovative Senior Living and Amanda Shields can provide not only help with advance care planning, placement services, care management and health advocacy; she also has 2 wonderful adult care homes that specialize in the care of the patient with Alzheimer’s and all other forms of dementia.

PACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Brian JarvisPACIFIC WEST ROOFING - Stan RobinsonIf you want to enjoy this winter in a warm, dry home, it’s important to take steps to ensure your roof doesn’t develop any leaks. Even small leaks can cause black mold and let pests into your home, potentially leading to irreparable damage. With that in mind, here are a few tips to follow so you can stay nice and toasty this winter:

1.) Trim aggressive tree branches: Trimming overhanging branches will reduce the organic debris that ends up on your roof, making cleaning easier and repairs less likely.

2.) Upgrade your attic insulation: It’s pretty easy for builders to cut corners with subpar insulation, so you may not be getting the benefits you need. A properly-insulated and baffled attic can prevent roof leaks by inhibiting air flow, slowing the snow and ice from melting on your roof which causes water to back up and leak.

3.) Clear your gutters: Clogged gutter can lead to ice dams, which can seriously damage your attic and the top floor of your house. Be sure your gutters are free of leaves before freezing temperatures arrive; the extra weight can cause your gutters to pull away from your home.

4.) Keep your roof clean: A clean roof is a healthy roof. Debris is one of the leading causes of roof leaks, so be sure that your roof is free of dead leaves, fallen branches, and other waste.

If you need further advice on winter roof maintenance, or help with roofing repairs before the cold weather arrives, contact Pacific West Roofing today!

NORTHWEST WOMEN'S CLINIC - Holly SpenceMidwives have a long tradition of caring for women and babies.

In the not so distant past, nearly all babies were born at home into the hands of a skilled midwife. Midwifery at that time, like medicine, was primarily an apprentice education. In the 1940s, nurse midwifery was introduced to America.

Certified nurse midwives (CNM) are nurses, first and foremost, but with advanced degrees in women’s health, primarily as it relates to the natural cycles of their reproductive life, including full-scope gynecological care.

“Many people think midwives only deliver babies at home or in birth centers” says Holly Spence, one of the CNMs at NWWC. “But most certified nurse midwives deliver their patients in a hospital setting.”

As NWWC CNMs, we deliver babies, as well as assist with cesarean sections at Providence St. Vincent and Legacy Good Samaritan hospitals. We collaborate and consult with any of our six NWWC OB-GYN physicians if surgical or serious complications arise.

“Midwives have been trained to see and treat the woman as a whole. We know and respect women’s bodies and are champions of a women’s innate ability to give birth,” Spence says. “We foster that with education and support. We are specially trained to be watchful and vigilant with a woman’s labor, but to only intervene if it becomes necessary.”

It is no coincidence that midwife patients as a whole have a very low C-section rate.

NIELSEN'S JEWELERS - Jan NielsenAsk anyone on the street, and they probably can’t tell you that Montana is the Treasure State due to its many mineral and gemstone sources. Take one look at a beautiful Montana sapphire, and you can soon see why Montana earned its nickname.

Originally discovered in the gold rushes of the 1860’s, early prospectors discarded the annoying blue pebbles clogging their sluices. These “pebbles” were eventually sent by Ed “Sapphire” Collins to Tiffany and Co. in 1865. When Tiffany purchased the stones and declared them to be “sapphires of unusual quality”, a small-scale sapphire rush started, with both domestic and foreign mining companies hoping to unearth fancy Montana sapphires.

Fancy Montana sapphires, which are found in the western part of the state, produce an amazing array of intense colors. Most deposits in the world contain only 2 colors of sapphire; at each deposit here, however, you’ll find greens, light blues, pinks, yellows, even oranges! This amazing amount of variety is what draws people to fancy colored Montana sapphires.

If you’re drawn to Montana sapphires, you’ll find the best selection and service at Nielsen’s. We currently have loose stones available, and we are constantly updating our inventory. To get your treasure from the Treasure State, visit Nielsen’s today!

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

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonHP recently apologized for a software update causing some of its printers to stop working with ink cartridges from competing suppliers, even if the printers had accepted the same cartridges in the past.

The apology comes after critics complained HP had over-reached by interfering with customers' right to choose ink suppliers. Critics also warned it could make customers less likely to accept future HP software updates.

HP says the update was part of an effort to “protect” (thwart) customers from using "unauthorized" cartridges.  HP apologized for not explaining its actions, and promised another software update providing options of reversing the controversial change.

Printer ink is one of HP's most profitable products, and has long tried to discourage customers from using lower-priced ink from other suppliers.

HP places security chips on its cartridges so they can be recognized by its printers.  Earlier this year, HP installed  a software update for some inkjet printers that included a new security feature that stopped printers from working with unauthorized cartridges that HP says contain "cloned" security chips — even if the printers had accepted those cartridges before.

The update sparked customer complaints and condemnation from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which advocates for tech users' rights.  EFF called the update a "bait-and-switch" tactic depriving consumers of choice, making printers less useful and warned makes consumers less willing to accept future updates.  Functionality vs. security.

We can shed some light on this issue.

As a full-service independent, non-franchise operation, Cartridge Network sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock several dozen different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.”

We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.

THE LAW OFFICES OF KEN MITCHELL-PHILLIPS - Ken Mitchell-PhillipsIf you have a business, you need a buy-sell agreement. Not having a buy-sell agreement is one legal mistake that I see too many small and medium-sized businesses make, and it can potentially lead to several huge issues. Let’s run through the 5 biggest reasons your business absolutely needs a buy-sell agreement.

1.) You should be able to choose your partners—Should one of your partners be forced to sell, or even dies, someone else can end up with his/her shares, leaving you with partners you never counted on having.

2.) You’ll get a fair buyout—A buy-sell agreement sets out a method for determining the fair price of a departed owner’s stake, eliminating potential disputes.

3.) It can prevent minority shareholders from blocking a sale—Including a drag along clause prevents a minority owner from extorting the other owners for a greater portion of sale proceeds.

4.) It can protect minority shareholders during a sale—A tag along clause entitles minority owners to the same price per share as majority owners upon the sale of the business.

5.) It can reduce your estate tax burden—Should one of your partners die, you can use the method contained in a buy-sell agreement to determine how the business should be valued for estate tax purposes. Without this process, the IRS is free to determine its own value of the business.

For help drafting your business’ buy-sell agreement, contact The Law Offices of Ken Mitchell-Phillips today!

    Here are several more things you should know about House Banners and Garden Flags:

  • They come in different shapes and sizes - House Banners are generally 28” wide by 40” long and have a pole sleeve at the top so they can be displayed from a front or back porch on a pole that is attached with a bracket to the porch railing or directly to the side of your house.
  • By contrast, Garden Flags measure roughly 12.5” wide by 18” long, and are typically displayed on a metal garden flag stand that is anchored in the ground in your yard or garden.
  • Both House Banners and Garden Flags come in a variety of colorful patterns to announce a milestone occasion like the birth of a baby, a joyous wedding, an important promotion, or to celebrate the changing seasons and festive holidays.
  • They’re not just for homes! - If you have a business and you’re having a big sale, a grand opening, or you’re looking for a reasonably priced way to draw attention to your business every day, banners are the perfect way to do it with style.

    LIVING RIGHT SENIOR PLACEMENT - Jennifer Cook-BumanPersonalized, face-to-face service is crucial in helping you make good decisions about senior housing. Whether selecting a senior community for yourself or a loved one, you want it to be relevant to your specific situation. You want to spend your time and energy wisely and feel confident about the final choice you make.

    Some agencies only gather information about your loved one over the phone or from internet intake-forms or medical chart notes. But your loved one is more than a form, a chart or medical professional’s report. Using just these avenues for gathering information often creates an inaccurate impression of your loved one leading to inadequate recommendations.

    A reputable advisor, like Jennifer at Living Right, gathers information from a variety of sources and perspectives – the most valuable being a face to face meeting. The meeting gives her a better snapshot of the whole person. She can see how your loved one walks, talks and responds socially. She can find out what’s important to your loved one, their goals, history and background.

    Armed with a well-rounded picture, an advisor can then customize a list of communities and care options that best match while discussing specific pros and cons of different types of housing and care.

    You’ll feel confident about your senior housing decisions and able to move forward with the next steps. That’s why Jennifer at Living Right wants to personally meet your mom.

    PARR CABINET DESIGN CENTER - Angela ZagorskyIf you found yourself paying exorbitant electric bills last year, it may be time to replace old windows and doors. Material construction and glass coatings have vastly improved the energy efficiency of modern windows and doors and Parr Lumber has a variety of brands including Jeldwen, Cascade, Marvin, Milgard, Plygem and more for every budget on display.

    Vinyl and fiberglass frames, which are far less conductive than older aluminum and wooden frames, greatly reduce heat transfer. Vinyl is the most popular option because of its low maintenance and cost. Today, wood windows are often hybrids, featuring wood on the inside and fiberglass on the outside. This allows for a combination of features: the timeless beauty of wood inside the home and the low maintenance, cost effective benefits of fiberglass for the exterior. To make glass more energy efficient without affecting visibility, low-e (low-emissivity) coatings are added to reflect heat keeping the home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter

    Beyond improving comfort and being more environmentally friendly, replacing old windows and doors also improves curb appeal and increases the value of a home. Windows and doors can be purchased in a variety of colors and styles. You are also able to choose from several different hardware options to customize the look and feel of the products.

    For more information on new windows and doors for your home, please call or visit The Parr Design Center Showroom or any Parr Lumber location.

    THE PORTLAND CLINIC - Dr. Janson HolmYour feet take you everywhere you go. With 28 bones in each foot, 10 tendons crossing the ankle joint to attach on the foot, and many more small muscles and tendons within the foot itself, your feet and ankles are critical to the movement that propels your body forward. Depending on the activity, your foot and ankle may be required to support up to 4½ times your body weight. With even the smallest disruption of foot and ankle function, it is immediately apparent how much we rely on normal foot and ankle function for daily activities.

    With so many moving parts, there is potential for overuse injuries, or un-masking of existing foot or ankle problems. The start of fall sports for children and teens places new demands on the foot and ankle; for us adults, fall brings a change in the type of shoes we wear, and often a change in our exercise routines as the weather cools off.

    You should be cautious with any abrupt changes in the type, frequency, and intensity of activity levels for you or your children. When it comes to changes in activity levels, gradual change to allow the foot and ankle to adapt is wise. A daily or pre-activity stretching routine minimizes the risk of overuse injury.

    Remember that foot and ankle pain that is not the direct result of an injury is not normal, and if it does not improve with rest and time, it should be evaluated.
