SPECIALTY HEATING & COOLING - Norm MatheisThe Hybrid Heat dual fuel comfort system by Carrier gives you the comfort of gas heat and the efficiency of a heat pump.

In the Northwest, you might use your gas furnace about 15 percent of the time in the winter months. The Heat Pump will keep you very comfortable for the other 85 percent of the time – and cost less to operate. (Plus, the heat pump provides cool comfort in the summer.)

With today’s rising uncertainty surrounding utility costs, homeowners are interested in finding the best, most economical solution for indoor heating and cooling.

Specialty Heating and Cooling can create customized home comfort systems tailored to your needs, with a broad selection of residential heating and cooling products.

Hybrid Heat systems deliver exceptional performance by using a heating source that provides its most energy-efficient comfort during moderate heating conditions. As the temperature drops outside, the system automatically switches to your second heating source when that becomes the most economical way to keep your family comfortable.

Whichever control best fits your needs, you can count on automatic control of your Hybrid Heat dual fuel system. Specialty Heating and Cooling will select a balance point that tells your control when it’s best to select electric heat and when it’s time to switch to furnace operation. Seven-day programmability can set a comfort schedule custom-fit to your lifestyle.

Ask about the various incentives and rebates that are offered for hybrid systems.

Pacific Medical GroupRemember the old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” This can be especially true when it comes to preventive care services.

Maintaining or improving your health with regular preventive care, along with following the advice of your Primary Care Provider (PCP), can help you stay healthy.

Routine checkups and screenings can help you avoid serious health problems, allowing you and your PCP to work as a team to manage your overall health, and help you reach your personal health and wellness goals.

Preventive care focuses on evaluating your current health status when you are symptom-free.

Even if you feel like you’re in good shape, a serious condition with no signs or symptoms may put your health at risk. Your practitioner can determine your current health status and detect early warning signs of more serious problems.

During your preventive-care visit, your PCP will determine what tests or health screenings are right for you based on many factors such as your age, gender, overall health status, personal health history and your current health condition. Such services may include immunizations, physical exams, lab work and X-rays.

Pacific Medical Group, with five clinics, provides patient-centered primary care and customer-focused service. All PMG clinics have received recognition as a Patient-Centered Medical Home by the NCQA and the State of Oregon. A Medical Home offers enhanced, coordinated medical care for its patients.

COMFORCARE HOME CARE - Marissa PhillipsAvoidable hospital readmissions, in addition to being a hardship for patients, are a major financial problem for the nation’s health care system.

In fact, a single preventable return trip to the hospital more than doubles the cost of care for Medicare patients. For example, Medicare pays on average about $15,000 for an episode of care without a readmission incident, but that number increases to $33,000 for a single readmission.

A home health care agency such as ComForCare helps lessen the chance that a patient will have be readmitted.

ComForCare services are available around the clock, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays.

We can provide same-day home care, transition-of-care (such as transportation home after a discharge) or assist with many other needs that arise when a family member is in crisis.

ComForCare’s commitment to quality care begins with identifying clients’ and families’ needs, creating a patient-centered care plan, coordinating with physicians and other providers, and implementing quality assurance throughout the duration of care. We have a rigorous 10-step screening process for our caregivers, nurse oversight of client care, and ongoing training and evaluation at every level.

When home care services are used to assist with care, caregivers can provide additional insights that can help patients to best manage conditions and enjoy the highest quality of life.

Call us today to find out how we can help.

PRESTIGE CARE RIVERWOOD - Kara TobeyExercise and physical activity are important for everyone, including older adults.

No matter your health and physical abilities, you gain a lot by staying active. In fact, in most cases you have more to lose by not being active.

Here are just a few of the benefits of physical activity for seniors:

· Can help maintain and improve your physical strength and fitness

· Can help improve your ability to do the everyday things you want to do

· Can help improve your balance

· Can help manage and improve diseases like diabetes, heart disease and osteoporosis

· Can help reduce feelings of depression and may improve mood and overall well-being.

You may want to talk with your health care provider if you aren’t used to energetic activity and you want to start a vigorous exercise program or significantly increase your physical activity. Your activity level is an important topic to discuss with your health care provider as part of your ongoing health care.

Ask your provider how physical activity can help you, whether you should avoid certain activities, and how to modify exercises to fit your situation.

The key word in all these benefits is YOU -- how fit and active you are now and how much effort you put into being active. To gain the most benefits, enjoy different types of exercise, stay safe while you exercise and be sure to eat a healthy diet, too!

WOODLAND HEIGHTS - Linda ElderIt’s been talked about before between you and your family.

”Maybe someday we should think about Assisted Living. There’d be no meals to cook or shop for, no dishes to wash, no cleaning and vacuuming, and people around every day to talk with or help you with tasks that are getting harder.”

Maybe this is the year to discover your options to make life easier.

Exploring the possibilities can seem overwhelming and confusing while you are trying to just get good information to make the right decisions.

We can help.

Our approach is comfortable. Our goal is to be of service. We’ll take whatever time is needed to answer all of your questions. There is no pressure or “this month only” specials to entice you to make a quick commitment and no annoying repeated phone calls.

If you would like to join us for lunch, we can do that too, just let us know. We can talk in our beautiful dining room with windows soaring upward and views to the landscaped woodlands.

Many others have already discovered this special place over the last 16 years, so when you decide that this would be a great choice, you may have to wait a bit for an opening. You’ll have time to get all those things done you need to do without feeling rushed.

Let’s welcome 2017 as a year of wonderful possibilities. Maybe this is the year to find out why Woodland Heights is different; why we have a reputation of caring excellence.

ACCOUNTAX OF OREGON - Annette SaarinenWith the end of the year fast approaching, it’s time to think about deductions!

Are you self-employed?

Last month, we covered three categories of business deductions for self-employed persons: auto expenses, meals and entertainment and travel: www.pamplinmedia.com/ttt-insiders/330640-210507-self-employed-document-those-deductions

This time, let’s look at deductions for having an office in your home.

An office in your home MUST be used regularly and exclusively for business. The deduction, Safe Harbor, requires measuring the square feet of the office portion against the total square foot of the home.

Indirect expenses such as rent, utilities, insurance, deductible mortgage interest, and property tax can be deducted at the business-use percentage rate.

The Safe Harbor deduction calculation is $5 per square foot of office space, limit 300 square feet. This usually isn’t as much as the actual costs, but it does save some taxpayer time in gathering the information.

As far as deductions for your personal taxes, don’t forget to clean out your closets, attic and basement of items you no longer use.

Keep a list of what was given with Fair Market Value. Make sure it is an approved charitable organization. Keep each receipt of donation and list for us to review.

Oregon Department of Justice is not allowing charitable deductions to organizations which haven’t fulfilled their charitable goals. To find your desired charity, check justice.oregon.gov/Charities

Best wishes for a happy Thanksgiving from all of us here at AccounTax!

BEEBE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Daniel Beebe“At this clinic, we measure – we don’t guess,” says Dr. Daniel Beebe, of Beebe Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Tigard.

Prior to treatment, for example, patients receive a thermal scan and an electrical scan (also called surface EMG) to see if muscles are pulling and which way they’re going, says Beebe. “The scans can tell us how to proceed with treatment. Later, we can rescan to see if you’re improving and if not, make adjustments to the treatment.”

Though the equipment for the scans is available to any practitioner, “it’s expensive and it takes experience to use it,” says Beebe.

Beebe also does a complete blood-chemistry panel.

“Here in the Northwest, we see a lot of low Vitamin D, anemia, liver problems and heart problems,” says Beebe. “It’s just a real good screen for general body conditions.”

“Patients may come in and say ‘I’m really fatigued all the time.’ We’ve even seen cases where they were bleeding internally, but just didn’t know. Others will come in with an autoimmune condition, such as Hashimoto’s Disease.”

“I test for gluten and other sensitivities. With people who have gluten sensitivities, it can affect a woman’s thyroid — which is a surprise to many.”

Women with gluten sensitivities suffer thyroid problems as a ratio of 23 to 1 compared to men.

PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING RIVERWOOD - Kara TobeySometimes, when a far-flung family comes together for the holidays, they may discover that an elderly loved one is having difficulty functioning well at home.

Here are some signs to look for:

Altered eating habits. Forgetting to eat or losing interest in food altogether are both signs of poor health. Alternatively, seniors with memory issues can overeat or repeat meals. A kitchen stocked with spoiled, half-eaten or expired food suggests a senior who can no longer manage alone.

Antisocial behavior. Losing interest in friends, withdrawing from social situations or neglecting a previously cherished hobby may indicate depression, memory loss or a decline in cognitive abilities.

Worsening finances. A senior who forgets to pay bills (or pays them multiple times) may need help managing their household finances. Look for unwanted magazine subscriptions or donation solicitations that can easily drain a bank account.

Poor personal hygiene. Many seniors feel uncomfortable asking for help with personal hygiene. Bad odors, a disheveled appearance or indications of skipped showers and baths all suggest that a senior can no longer perform daily grooming tasks unaided.

Decline in safety. For a senior, a fall in the shower (and the subsequent hospitalization) can be a life-threatening injury. A senior who leaves the stove on or forgets how often to take their medication may need daily help.

While the family’s in town, be proactive. Don’t wait until the situation becomes an emergency.

Call us to arrange a tour. We’ll be glad to show you what makes Prestige Senior Living Riverwood special.

COMFORCARE - Marissa PhillipsSeniors who have difficulty with such tasks as daily living, self-care and medication management may need a little help – or a lot.

Employing a home care agency is a great choice because it’s easily adjusted to meet a client’s needs.

A licensed home care agency such as ComForCare hires employees, not independent contractors. We do background and reference checks, training and continuing education.

Following an assessment of client needs, our employees provide needed services from a long menu, including medication, safety supervision, light housekeeping and laundry, meal preparation, bathing and dressing, incontinence care, transportation and companionship. Caregivers are trained to care for those with dementia.

Home care is generally less expensive than other care options. Nursing home costs may range from about $200-$250 each day for a basic room and care, adding up to about $5,600 to $7,000 a month. Assisted living facilities may cost about $3,300 per month for a one-bedroom unit.

Home care costs can vary considerably depending on the intensity of the client’s needs, but usually remain considerably lower than these options. 

While in-home elder care is a significant investment, there are several payment options and funding sources that can help ease the financial burden. We can connect you with resources and programs which may help you.

Together, we can come up with a plan of care and hours that are not only affordable but ensures that your loved one receives the best home care possible!

At Woodland Heights, we have many positive things for which to be thankful.

We have the opportunity to work in a great industry, which is a business, but for us, it’s a calling. It’s not just a job, but a fulfilling choice where we can go home at night feeling good about the people we were able to help today and not begrudge another workday tomorrow.

We are grateful for our owners, who had the vision to build this special place; grateful that they have chosen to focus their energy on only this one building; grateful that they always support our goal of providing the best care possible.

We are grateful for each other, as no day is the same and the one guarantee is change and surprises. Our team always pulls together to adapt, help each other and help our residents. The words “It’s not my job” are never heard here.

We are grateful for the wonderful families we are blessed to work with, while finding solutions together to meet the changing needs of our residents.

We are grateful, mostly, for our residents, grateful that they chose to place their trust in us; grateful each time they share with us about their desires and ideas and lives. Each one is a very special person.

SPECIALTY HEATING & COOLING - Norm MatheisThe winter holidays are no time to have your furnace go kerflooey.

The Norman Rockwell ideal, with the smiling family gathering around the turkey to give thanks, becomes a feast of frowns when the heat goes off.

Depend on Specialty Heating and Cooling to keep you and your guests comfortable and the holidays festive.

Your HVAC system should have annual maintenance. This is a great investment and should be done at the turn of fall or winter. Maintenance appointments will help identify any potential problem areas that may be unseen that could lead to expensive repairs later down the road.

And of course, call us at the first sign of trouble so that we can service your system.

Meanwhile, what can you do?

Make sure your filters are clean. Clogged filters can disrupt the flow of air to your home. Not only that, dirty filters can trip safety switches inside the furnace. Check your filters regularly and replace them as needed.

Don’t ignore unusual sounds. If you’ve noticed some strange sounds coming out of your system recently, or if the system doesn’t seem to be acting right, don’t ignore these signs any longer. Unusual sounds can be a sign that a part replacement or repair is needed. If you’re not sure, our team of experienced technicians can help accurately diagnose the problem and make sure that the system is fixed so you’re comfortable.

Our team is here to help make sure your holidays are warm and happy. Give us a call at 503-946-6396.
