Nonprofit Leaders Inspired, Connected at Tampa Bay Charity Coalition Luncheon

Nonprofit leaders at a bi-monthly Charity Coalition Luncheon on July 27th. Held at the Fort Harrison religious retreat, the Charity Coalition offers representatives of nonprofits the opportunity to meet and work together on similar goals.

Everything that has ever changed the world started with one person. You may think you are just one person, but one person can make a big difference.”

— Raul Arias Perez, human rights advocate

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, USA, July 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Wednesday, July 27th, the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization hosted a bi-monthly meeting of the Tampa Bay Charity Coalition in the Fort Harrison’s Crystal Ballroom, downtown Clearwater. Over six dozen Tampa Bay nonprofit representatives networked, learned about one of the charities and heard from Raul Arias Perez on his fight against human trafficking in Mexico.

Nonprofits present included Pinellas Police Athletics League (PAL), youth mentorship program TAG-IN and The Butterfly Effect of Golf. Clemence Chevrot, Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology in Clearwater and event MC, welcomed guests.

“We established the Charity Coalition five years ago to bring nonprofits together and contribute a community-oriented force for good in Tampa Bay,” said Ms. Chevrot. “By survey, we found that people decide to volunteer for or donate to a charity because the cause matters to them or the charity’s event sounded like fun, but most of all, because of the rewarding feeling you get when you help.”

To give an example of this, Ms. Chevrot welcomed Ms. Joanie Sigal, Chairwoman of the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Fashions with Flair Fashion Show. Ms. Sigal is a long-time Clearwater-area volunteer who sits on the boards of several nonprofits, including the Clearwater Jazz Holiday. Ms. Sigal spoke about how rewarding it has been to help CCV raise more than $200,000 over the past 15 years to provide underprivileged youth with food and toys.

Mr. Arias shared his story of the national campaign he created to combat human trafficking in Mexico. He knew he had to do something after hearing from parents whose daughter became a human trafficking victim. Since then he has been educating millions on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights through the Youth for Human Rights program. One result of his campaign was to change the constitution of a Mexican State to allow for greater consideration of human rights.

Arias encouraged the audience to keep moving forward with their missions. He said, “Everything that has ever changed the world started with one person. You may think you are just one person, but one person can make a big difference.”

A speed networking segment followed wherein attendees had one minute to exchange as many business cards as possible. A few guests commented that they made more new contacts in one minute than in a whole week.

The next Charity Coalition function will be its 5th Anniversary Banquet on the 14th of September in the Fort Harrison’s auditorium. To attend or find out more about the Charity Coalition please contact Clemence Chevrot at (727) 467-6860 or Clemence@cos.flag.org.

GLOBAL ACCESS TO DRINKING WATER HIGHLIGHTED AS A WELL IN UGANDA IS DEDICATED TO DIOCESE OF CLOGHER IN AUGUST 2020

Bishop Lawrence (Larry) Duffy

Launch of Wells of Ireland

Students in Ireland Support Wells of Life

Wells of Life Ireland announced that the Diocese of Clougher will provide a water well in East Africa in 2020

Having worked in Africa myself, I know the immense value placed by people and communities on clean drinking water and its impact on their lives.”

— Bishop Larry Duffy

TATESTOWN DONAGHPATRICK NAVAN, CO. , MEATH, IRELAND, July 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — August 2020 will see the dedication of a water well in Uganda to the Diocese of Clogher through the worldwide work of Wells of Life Ireland, an international organization which strives to bring life-saving water to the people of East Africa. The dedication of the well will create a further bond between the people of the Diocese of Clogher, a place well-known for its commitment to the people of Africa, and the people there. It also stimulates further awareness of the very real need for people locally to help others less fortunate than ourselves. Therefore, members of the public across all the parishes of Clogher diocese are invited to consider participating in the trip to Uganda from 9 to 15 August 2020, during which the dedication of the Clogher well will take place, thus adding to the others that are dedicated to other Irish dioceses there.

Wells of Life, a Christian organization made up of individuals, families, schools, churches and businesses in America and worldwide, is a nonprofit body that fights to provide access to clean, sustainable drinking water to end poverty in rural communities in Uganda. Wells of Life drills wells and teaches communities about sustainable hygiene and water supply. Their focus stems from the desire to improve the quality of life of the people there, one well at a time.

Their mission is to tackle the world-wide crisis of the shortage of clean drinking water in the spirit of Matthew 17:20: If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can move mountains so that people everywhere may joyfully draw water from life-saving wells (cf Isaiah 12:3).

Among the supporters of Wells of Life is Pope Francis, who has had Well No. 133 dedicated to him. At a Vatican conference last November, Pope Francis advocated for global access to clean drinking water when he spoke of the reality that in many parts of the world ‘our brothers and sisters cannot have a dignified life because of the lack of access to clean water.

The inclusion of the Diocese of Clogher in this project adds to the positive track record the diocese has with regard to Africa and to environmental and justice issues. A number of parishes have ongoing fundraising initiatives for various projects in Kitui in Kenya and in Uganda, among other places. The Clogher Justice and Peace and Integrity of Creation Group is working hard to increase the awareness of climate change and related justice questions.

A parishioner from Magheracloone in south-Monaghan, Lou Metzger, is an ambassador for Wells of Life. A lecturer in photography in DKIT, Dundalk and a former President of the Carrickmacross Lions Club, Lou is organizing and promoting the trip to Uganda for the dedication of the well to the Diocese of Clogher in August 2020 and he can be contacted on 00 353 42 966 1394 or by email at loumetzger@mac.com. Mr. Metzger is encouraging people from across the diocese to travel to Uganda for the opening, adding that ‘bringing supplies to the schools and orphanages would be a life-changing experience, in addition to being at the opening of this wonderful well that will change the life of a village forever and save many children's lives.'

Bishop Larry Duffy added his support to the initiative and welcomed the fact that the diocese was being included among the wells saying, “The people of this diocese have a long history of generosity and solidarity with the people of Africa and several of our parishes fund various projects in Uganda already. Having worked in Africa myself, I know the immense value placed by people and communities on clean drinking water and its impact on their lives. I am happy that the Diocese of Clogher is being included in the work and mission of Wells of Life in Uganda and I wish Lou and all of the team every blessing in their life-giving work.”

Watchdog: Multi-Million Fines Insufficient to Curb Abuse in For-Profit Behavioral Health Industry

Since 2015, CCHR has exposed alleged abuses in for-profit hospitals accused of abusing involuntarily commitment to detain patients for their insurance.

Patient abuses in the psychiatric industry require much stronger penalties than a few million dollars in fines. Increased safeguards should include jail penalties, where criminal violations found.”

— Jan Eastgate, president of CCHR International

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Universal Health Services (UHS), which owns a chain of for-profit psychiatric facilities in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, has agreed to pay $127 million to settle a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) civil probe into alleged fraud. The settlement is subject to approval. [1] But Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a mental health watchdog, says the proposed settlement is insufficient to send an adequate warning to other for-profit behavioral facilities accused of patient abuse and healthcare fraud.

Media reports on the UHS payment said the company “has been dogged by the DOJ investigation into false claims allegedly submitted by its behavioral health facilities.”

For decades CCHR has investigated allegations of abuse and potential fraud in for-profit psychiatric facilities. Since 2015, over 18,000 official complaints have been filed with Federal and State authorities and legislators. A CCHR International report on the issue published in December 2018 highlighted how behavioral companies get billions of dollars in Medicaid and Medicare rebates, yet the “return” appears to be more patient abuse.

CCHR says allegations of sexual abuse of patients in the for-profit behavioral hospital industry are rife. Last year, UHS closed its Timberlawn psychiatric hospital in Texas in the wake of allegations that a 13-year-old girl was raped at the facility. [2]

Sequel Youth and Family Services is a privately-owned company that and operates in about 20 states.

Other allegations about Sequel facilities include:

• May 2019: Utah’s Department of Human Services threatened the license of a Sequel-owned facility over "understaffing” that had “negatively impacted the program's ability to address violence and sexual misconduct within the program.” In response, Sequel announced that it is closing the facility. [3]

• 2018: In Iowa, a youth advocacy group from Washington State stopped sending children to Sequel’s Clarienda Academy after concerns were raised about the use of restraints. [4]

• August 2017: A 37-year-old staff Clarienda staffer was accused of forcible sodomy and lascivious conduct with a minor. [5]

• 2016: A 40-year-old night staff member at Clarienda was arrested and charged with three felony sex charges regarding a 17-year-old student. The staffer pleaded guilty to sexual misconduct and was sentenced to ten years’ probation. [6]

• July 2017: Police arrested a youth counselor with Sequel TSI of Madison, Alabama, on charges that she engaged in sex with a student under 19 years of age. She was indicted in September 2018 for sex acts involving multiple students under the age of 19. [7]

• January 2018: A 38-year-old staffer at Northern Illinois Academy was charged with three counts of criminal sexual assault on an adolescent, over whom he held a position of trust or authority. The staffer pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. [8]

• August 2018: A Lakeside Academy in Kansas staffer was arrested on three counts of unlawful sexual relations involving a juvenile. [9]

• 2012: A Sequel staffer from Red Rock Canyon School (RRCS) in St. George, Utah was arrested and charged with sexually abusing three male students. [10] The staffer pleaded guilty to felony forcible sexual abuse and was sentenced to 210 days in jail and 36 months supervised probation. [11]

Recent controversy over RRCS led to Sequel’s decision to close the facility. On April 28, 2019, a two-hour riot erupted at the facility, with police, medical and SWAT forced to respond. 25 students were injured, of which five were transported to the hospital for more serious treatment, including one student who required staples to close a gash on the back of his head. [12]

CCHR says it is placing attention on Florida, where Sequel owns 10 facilities, and, in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas, offers “Foster homes” to provide services for children with severe mental health disorders/behavioral problems. [13]

Since 2015, CCHR International and its Florida Chapter have investigated and exposed alleged abuses in for-profit behavioral hospitals that have been accused of abusing the state’s Baker Act to involuntarily commit patients and detained them for their insurance.

UHS has some 16 behavioral facilities in Florida and closed its National Deaf Academy in 2014 following scrutiny of abuses reported to police, including three alleging sexual abuse. [14]

Jan Eastgate, the group’s international president, said: “Patient abuses in the psychiatric-behavioral industry require much stronger penalties than a few million dollars in fines where systemic patient abuse and/or fraud are established. Increased safeguards should include jail penalties, where criminal violations found.”

CCHR says West Palm Beach County, Florida State Attorney Dave Aronberg’s comments last year mirrors their concerns: “This is an entire industry that's been corrupted by easy money. Unscrupulous actors have taken advantage of well-intended federal law and a lack of any good law at the state level, to profit off people at the lowest stages of their lives.” [15]

CCHR calls for anyone whose mother, wife, sister or father, brother, son, child or friend has been killed or damaged by psychiatric “treatment” to fill out this form. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org or call 727-442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Approximately 50,000 people are experiencing homelessness in and around L.A., according to the latest count by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority. The vast majority of them live unsheltered on the streets.

the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study (NVVRS). It is estimated that about 30 out of every 100 (or 30%) of Vietnam Veterans have had PTSD in their lifetime. According to recent statistics, 18 to 22 veterans die by suicide every day due to severe depression, chronic anxiety, sexual or other trauma, serious substance abuse and many other PTSD-related afflictions. Nonetheless, only 30 to 40% of veterans and military personnel diagnosed with severe mental or emotional distress seek professional help. Much of this has to do with the costliness of traditional therapy and the lack of access to military or civilian mental health providers.

Dr Chevalier has been treating Veterans for Post-traumatic stress disorder commonly referred to as (PTSD), resulting in very significant results that are proven with scientific documentation.

Valiant Recovery Inc. today announced that in recognition of their 10th Anniversary, they are offering Two Free full 30 day Addiction Treatment Programs.

KELOWNA , BC, CANADA, July 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Kelowna, British Columbia – July 22, 2019 – Valiant Recovery Inc. today announced that in recognition of their 10th Anniversary, they are offering Two Free full 30 day Addiction Treatment Programs. Valiant Recovery has a mandate to see Addiction Reduced and Families Restored.

“Over the last 10 years, we have seen hundreds of Families Restored from the grip of addiction”, says Royce Dockrill, CEO at Valiant Recovery Inc. “We wanted to give this same opportunity to two Families, who might not otherwise have access to a Private Rehab program.”

Having experienced the devastation from the Opiate Epidemic (in both their Kelowna, BC and Ottawa, Ontario locations) they have developed specific Programs for addressing the needs of individuals fighting Opiate Addiction. Their individualized treatment approach is unique in Canada.

“As Professionals in the field of Addiction, we know that the only solution to this crisis is Addiction Treatment,” Dockrill said. “when we can address the underlying root causes for each individual person, we discover the Keys to unlocking the chains of their Addiction .”

Valiant Recovery is a Private residential treatment program for addictions and mental health. They receive no financial support from the Canadian Government. Because of this, they have to turn away families all the time solely because of the lack of funding. In an effort to help some of these families, Valiant Recovery is hosting an Essay Contest. The top Male and Female submission with receive a Full 30 Day Residential Treatment Program for free.

To enter the Contest, Entrants must visit https://www.valiantrecovery.com/giveaway/enter-to-win/
Then submit a compelling story about themselves or a loved one, explaining why they need treatment, including a bit of background to their story. Visitors will vote for the story they believe is the most deserving. This campaign will help to raise awareness to the deep need for Recovery solutions in Canada. Giving a voice to those families struggling in silence, knowing addiction can strike anyone from any walk of life.

“We are excited to be able to give back and help these families in need”, Dockrill said. “We wish we could help more families, but without Government support, treatment costs are very high”

In Canada, the addiction treatment field needs more direct funding from the Government of Canada. Parliament needs to relook where they are allocating current resources and consider moving funding to real solutions, like Addiction Treatment. Safe Injection facilities and Wet Sober Livings save lives, but they aren't a solution.

There are also many great MAT (Medication Assisted Therapies) available, some of which the Government has blocked access to in Canada. Vivitrol is one of those medications, it is a 30 day injectable. It completely blocks opiate receptors making the user unable to get a high from opiates. It also works for alcohol.

“We have had a few Clients, who might still be alive today if Vivitrol was made readily available in Canada”, Dockrill Stated.

About Valiant Recovery Inc.
Valiant Recovery started 10 years ago in Kelowna BC. Since then, they have expanded their Kelowna Campus to include a separate Men’s and Women’s Program in addition to the Co-Ed Campus. In 2017, they made the decision to expand into Ottawa, Ontario, and have also purchased a new location in Punta Gorda, Florida. They are passionate about Recovery, seeing Families healed and restored. They know there is hope for anyone struggling with addiction. They are dedicated to spreading the message that “Recovery is Possible”. The Caring Compassionate setting at Valiant Recovery is the ideal environment to foster healing.

Will my Social Security Benefits Affect my Worker’s Compensation?

social security disability insurance benefits

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — It is not unheard of for a worker to receive social security disability insurance benefits and worker’s compensation benefits at the same time. They are the two biggest work-based disability programs in the United States. While both pay out for a disability, social security disability insurance (SSDI) benefits are paid to those who cannot be employed due to the work-related injury. Worker’s compensation benefits can be temporary, long term, partial or total disability. Not all employees are covered by state workers’ comp insurance. Some employees are covered by other compensation laws administered by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).

Worker’s Compensation Benefits Will Change:
If you receive worker’s compensation benefits and SSDI for a workplace injury, the total amount of both cannot exceed 80 percent of your average current earnings before you became injured.

An “Offset” to Worker’s Compensation Benefits:
If the total amount exceeds 80 percent, the “excess” is deducted from your SSDI benefits. This is called a “worker’s compensation offset.”

How to Minimize the Offset:
Many disability lawyers will draft settlements to minimize the SSDI “offset”. The language in these documents will determine how much is subject to “offset.” Also, some will exclude medical expenses, medical care, health care, and legal expenses from the worker’s compensation insurance lump sum. The language and the issues to be settled come from state law, not federal gov law. Thus, they will vary from state to state as workers' compensation programs do.

Get the Workers' Compensation Coverage You Deserve:
If you are receiving these workers' compensation program benefits at the same time, please contact us today. We will make sure you understand how SSDI affects your worker’s compensation coverage and vice-versa. We will get you the most from your benefits. Schedule a free consultation today.

The Law Offices of Craig A. Altman:
Collecting a workers’ compensation check can often be a challenge for someone suffering from a job-related injury. Sometimes injured employees are unfairly denied the benefits and workers' compensation they need to support themselves while injured and support their families.

That’s why a qualified and experienced workers’ compensation attorney, like those found at the Law Offices of Craig A. Altman, is a sound strategy. Having a workplace injury lawyer and expert with the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act on your side makes filing a workers’ compensation claim a lot easier, and gives you an advocate in the legal system to fight for the benefits to which you are entitled. We are knowledgeable of workers' compensation law and the workers' compensation system.

Our workers’ compensation lawyers have decades of experience in helping injured workers with their workers comp claims by providing legal advice and helping them obtain the benefits that they rightfully deserve. If you or someone you know suffered a job injury, personal injury, or needs help battling insurance companies, don’t hesitate to call one of our workers’ compensation attorneys. We will fight on your behalf to get you the workers comp insurance that you deserve.

Our law firm understands the difficulties following a work-related injury, which is why we form an attorney-client relationship and act in your best interest.

The experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at the Law Firm of Craig Altman will help you navigate the complicated New Jersey Workers’ Compensation system, deal with your employer’s insurance company, and fight to get you the medical treatment and type of settlement you deserve.

ENCOURAGES THE COMMUNITY TO GIVE POLICE OFFICERS A BOTTLE OF WATER AS A SIGN OF RESPECT AND SUPPORT

Day in and day out Police Officers risk their lives to keep us safe, and we hope this campaign generates enough traction to show them how much the community at large appreciates and respects them.”

— Dominick Ciccarelli

STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK, USA, July 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Online videos of people throwing buckets of water at local law enforcement have recently surfaced across social media. This blatant disrespect of authority has caused outrage among both civilians and police officials nationwide. The Executive Club of Staten Island has launched the #hyrdrateheroes campaign to bring the community together and show their support and respect for law enforcement

“What we’ve seen over the past week is nothing short of outrageous,” said Dominick Ciccarelli, Executive Club of Staten Island Member and creator of the campaign. “Day in and day out Police Officers risk their lives to keep us safe, and we hope this campaign generates enough traction to show them how much the community at large appreciates and respects them.”

For the rest of the summer, people are encouraged to give a Police Officer a bottle of water, take a photo with them, and post it to their social media accounts using the hashtag #hydrateheroes. A small token of thanks, to promote solidarity within the community between civilians and officers.

“I’m glad we can demonstrate how normal people interact with cops, and generally anyone in their neighborhood,” said Councilman Joe Borelli. “It’s sad we need a hashtag to show people how to act, but here we are.”

Members of The Executive Club of Staten Island traveled to the 68th Precinct in Brooklyn where they captured the first photographs for the #hydrateheroes campaign. They will begin publishing them across social media today.

“This past week we saw the worst in people,” said Police Officer Joseph Imperatrice, Founder of Blue Lives Matter. “An overwhelming majority of individuals love and respect our police and #hydrateheroes is going to highlight that.”

All photos uploaded using #hydrateheroes will be streamed on the Executive Club of Staten Island’s website and social media accounts. Individuals are encouraged to tag and share @executiveclubsi when posting their photos.

Thanks to Minister Lahweej, key personalities are moving to recognize the Interim Government as the sole legitimate government representing the people of Libya.

BENGHAZI, LIBYA, July 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Amidst turmoil in Libya, where the Interim Government and its affiliated Libyan National Army are struggling to liberate the capital Tripoli from terrorist groups and militias, the Interim Government's Minister of Foreign Affairs is gaining international traction and the attention of senior leaders of foreign governments.

Abdulhadi Lahweej, a young and charismatic Libyan leader, is the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the East-Libya based Interim Government, a Government which derives its legitimacy from the democratically-elected and UN-recognized House of Representatives of Libya. Lahweej is part of a movement to cleanse Libya from terrorist groups and militias, in a strive to re-unify the country and bring democracy and stability to its people.

As the struggle for re-unification and stabilization of the State of Libya continues in the outskirts of Tripoli, major advancements are being made on both fronts, -at home and abroad. Key personalities have understood the facts on the ground and are quickly moving toward formally recognizing the Interim Government of Libya as the sole legitimate government representing the people of Libya.

While Tripoli and Libyan Embassies abroad remain largely under the control of an illegitimate and militia-supported "Government of National Accord", the legitimate Interim Government is steadily garnering international support and recognition from key allies thanks to the diplomacy led by Lahweej.

Proving that democratic legitimacy and a just cause are once again victorious in the international arena, Minister Lahweej represented the State of Libya and its Interim Government at the funeral of the late President of the Republic of Tunisia two days ago.

Lahweej was present along with His Royal Highness the King of Spain, the Presidents of France, Portugal, Malta, Algeria, Palestine, the brother of HRH the King of Morocco, and various Heads of Government, Ministers, the Secretary-General of the League of Arab States, and the Secretary-General of the Arab Union of Morocco, as well as members of the Tunisian government, Heads of Diplomatic Missions and Ambassadors and several other Tunisian and foreign personalities.

On the occasion of Saturday's ceremony at the Carthage Palace, Minister Lahweej held a series of meetings and talks with key international, regional and Tunisian leaders on the current Libyan situation, energetically representing the interest of the Libyan people and receiving strong support and recognition from key personalities.

If someone close to you is undergoing surgery or some other medical treatment, you can provide support. In his new article, Dr. Tansar Mir explains.

The most common complaint of patients suffering from serious illnesses – especially when they are of advanced age – is that they feel lonely during appointments. ”

— Dr. Tansar Mir, Plastic Surgeon in New York

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Regardless of how severe the medical issue may be, dealing with surgery or illnesses can be difficult. In this day and age, surgery, diseases, conditions, and illnesses are generally not only associated with tremendous amounts of pain anymore, but medical issues can be emotionally and psychologically draining. Add to that the fact that most treatments today are quite costly.

But if someone close to you is undergoing surgery or some other medical treatment, there is something you can do to lend support. To explain, medical doctor and surgeon Tansar Mir, MD has published an informational article on this subject in an easy-to-understand way. The complete article will be published on the Blog of Dr. Mir at https://tansarmirmd.home.blog/

Having a loved one undergoing surgery or being struck by a serious disease can be incredibly exhausting for a number of different reasons. Not only is your mind constantly racing at how the treatment will progress, but you’re also left wondering about all the possibilities and the different ways in which you can offer your love and support to your friends and family in testing times.

Since we understand that you might not be able to think straight when your loved ones are undergoing medical treatment, we’ve got the perfect list of things to do in order to support your friends and family when they are in need.

Interested in learning how you can offer support to your loved one? Read on to find out as we tell you the best and most thoughtful ways in which you can show your love and support.

Accept the situation

If you’re like most people, you might have a hard time wrapping your head around the fact that your loved one may not be in the best of health for the next few weeks. With that said, however, accepting the situation and coming to terms with the fact that your loved ones are going through a tough time is the best way to ensure that you’ll be able to provide them with the support and love that they need during a difficult phase in their lives. If you’re too preoccupied with worrying about all that could have been done to prevent such a situation from arising in the first place, chances are that you won’t be able to provide your friends or family with the love and support that they need most when they are suffering from a serious illness, condition or disease. By accepting the situation, you will essentially divert your focus on ways to be there for them and cater to their every need when they are going through physical and emotional distress.

Show them unconditional love

The psychological aspect of serious and life-threatening diseases can never be emphasized enough. While most patients at some point or the other begin to feel like they are burdening their friends and loved ones, this especially holds true for patients who are suffering from serious diseases and may be bedridden.

If your loved one is struck by a serious disease and needs your help and assistance with even the most basic of activities or tasks such as walking to the front door or eating, showing them unconditional love is your best bet. Since it is easy for patients to feel like they are troubling those around them too much, or that you do not want to spend time with them any longer, showing your sick friends and family unconditional love in these testing times is your best bet to ensure that they do not only feel valued, but also know that they have a support system that they can count on when the going gets tough.

Whether you can help out by preparing health and nutritional meals at home or making handmade heartfelt cards, it is important to leave no stone unturned when it comes to making your loved one feel better.

Give them company

The most common complaint of patients suffering from serious illnesses – especially when they are on the older side – is that they feel lonely during appointments. Being there for your loved one during their appointments when doctors are breaking the worst of news to them or providing them with action plans for treatment and regaining stability in life is one of the best ways of showing that you care. Accompanying your loved ones on their doctor’s appointments also helps you give off positive vibes and show them that they are not alone. By being there with your ill friend or family member, you can also help them believe that they have a strong support system that will always be there for them no matter what.

Monitor their health

While your loved one with a serious illness or medical condition might have a team of healthcare professionals or doctors keeping a close eye on their case, keeping track of their health and monitoring it in any way possible is a great way to show your love and support. Often, patients can get agitated about the fact that their loved ones are not in sight when they are being injected, having blood drawn, or being provided with pill after pill to gulp down. This is exactly why you should make it a point to keep track of the medications and health status of your loved one to ensure that they feel like they are still important to you. One thing, however, that it is important to note that in serious scenarios, doctors might not grant you permission to take things in your own hands since that could cause problems. Should that be the case, it is important to respect the decision and authority of the doctor or other medical professionals and continue to offer support in other ways.

Help out with finances

As mentioned earlier, treatments for serious illnesses can cause a fortune. Needless to say, patients are often distressed worrying about their financial situation and how they’ll be able to cope with all of the medical bills. For this reason, it is important to help out with the medical expenses of the patient in any way possible to ensure that they know that they are covered and don’t have one extra thing to worry about.
