BLOG: Caring for Senior Family Members This Holiday Season

first_img By: Teresa Osborne, Secretary of Aging Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Holidays,  Human Services,  Seniors,  The Blog With the holiday season upon us, many families are likely to get together at some point during the next two weeks.  Such family gatherings serve as the perfect time to check in and quietly assess how elderly family members are faring and to determine if they may need some extra help.  There are five primary areas recommended to check on.Look around the house or apartment.Do you see dark stairwells, loose rugs, clutter or fire hazards?  Would brighter lighting and clearer passage ways help?  Could the home be easier to navigate with simple modifications, such as easier to use handles and switches, a tub bench, comfort height toilet, or walk-in shower?  Are the stairs easy to manage, or would a stair glide help?  Would it be safer if all living quarters were on one level?  Is there a bath on the ground floor or a room that could become a bedroom? Do you see scorched pots and pans?  Is the home more un-kept than usual?  Are the smoke alarm batteries working?Look in the refrigerator and assess nutritional status.Are there healthy foods, fresh produce and meats?  Are food products expired or moldy?   When you sit down for a meal or go out to eat, are they eating less or showing little interest in food?  Do they appear to have lost weight?Look at medications and assess health & social status.Have they recently seen their primary care physician?  Are their prescriptions up to date or are expired pill bottles mixed in with current ones?  Ask how their medications make them feel?  Do they remember to take their medications properly?  Are the pills organized?  Would a pill organizer help?  Ask when was the last time they went out with friends or did things they like to do, such as go out to a movie, to eat or to church?  Can you carry on a coherent conversation?  Do they keep repeating the same story?Look at their financial situation.Is mail left unopened?  Are household bills piling up?  Have late-notices been received?  Are there bills that they simply cannot afford to pay?  Ask if all of their financial information is one place in case you ever need to access it in an emergency?Look at their car.If they are still driving, let them take you for a drive so you can assess their driving skills. Do they drive too slow, miss traffic signals or signs or have trouble at intersections?  Assess the car, are there dents or dings on the car or garage?  Have they received any recent speeding or traffic tickets?While these quick tips will allow you to check in respectfully and gracefully, it’s important that your elderly family members have the support and tools needed to live independently after your holiday visit has ended.  If your check in leads to concerns make any necessary home adjustments and arrange for proper supports and resources to help them remain safely at home.  Your local area agency on aging is available to provide you and your loved one with proper guidance and can be located here.During this time of year when many seniors are more prone to loneliness or depression, in addition to checking in with your own elderly family members, pausing to remember the elders in your community by making a visit to a nursing home or bringing a meal or plate of goodies to your elderly neighbor are some of the greatest gifts you can give.center_img BLOG: Caring for Senior Family Members This Holiday Season December 17, 2015last_img read more

US operators under pressure on safety

first_imgFALLOUT continues from the spate of spectacular train wrecks early in 1996 (RG 4.96 p177) which marred a generally excellent safety record in the USA. In a hearing on December 11, the National Transportation Safety Board spread blame widely for the February 1 1996 runaway down Cajon Pass, California. Investigators believe that somewhere near the summit a brake hose pinched shut not far behind the locomotive. With brakes on most of the 49 wagons isolated, the train accelerated down the steep grade, derailed, and burned for a day and a half, blocking a major highway.It transpired that the battery powered end-of-train unit linked by radio to the locomotive was not fully operational, so the driver was unable to vent the train pipe from the rear end and thus halt the runaway. Incredibly, NTSB claims middle management and crew members assumed they were satisfying top management’s safety concerns merely by installing the unit on the rear coupler, even though it wasn’t activated!Five days after the accident, the Federal Railroad Administration issued an emergency order requiring working end-of-train braking units on all BNSF trains using the Cajon Pass. Two weeks later, the FRA asked the nation’s 10 largest railways to install working units on all trains operating in mountainous terrain, and this was completed by December 1996. US operators have agreed voluntarily to install the devices on ’virtually all’ freight trains by June 30.NTSB first proposed that rear-end application be added to end-of-train brake pressure monitors in 1989. After a Santa Fe train ran away in Cajon Pass in January 1995, NTSB asked the FRA to order early compliance, but nothing happened. According to Robert Lauby, head of NTSB’s railway division, ’it wasn’t until after the [1996] accident that the industry acted voluntarily … and if anyone should have known better, it was the Santa Fe.’ Collision postsThe FRA has recommended modifications to locomotives and coaches, including stronger and taller collision posts, to protect both passengers and crews. Although FRA’s report took three years to complete, the fact that collision posts were ’totally destroyed’ in the February 16 1996 collision at Silver Spring between Amtrak’s Capitol Limited and a MARC commuter train, in which 11 people were crushed or burned to death, has clearly influenced the outcome.The report also recommends improved fuel tank design, better methods to control noise and temperature levels inside locomotive cabs, and the creation of ’crash refuge’ zones for train crews where they can take cover if a collision is imminent. The report is being considered by the Railroad Safety Advisory Committee made up of regulators, railway companies and unions, which will present recommendations to the FRA before mandatory rules are formulated.On December 23 the FRA issued a final rule requiring railways to design comprehensive safety programmes to protect track workers from being struck by trains. Each operator must produce an on-track safety manual, along with clear statements of employers’ and employees’ rights and responsibilities with regard to safety. Amtrak, commuter operators and Class I railways must be in compliance by March 15. The remainder of the industry has an additional two months. Positive train separationPhase one field testing of positive train separation (PTS), a form of automatic train protection which enforces train movement limits, has been successfully completed by BNSF and Union Pacific. ’Initial PTS test results have been very encouraging’, reported Nick Marsh, BNSF’s Assistant Vice President responsible for technical research and development on December 11.GE Harris Railway Electronics has been working on this PTS system in conjunction with the FRA since 1994. BNSF and UP began joint trials last August on 1300track-km in Washington and Oregon.Three more PTS test phases are planned for 1997, including use of a satellite-based global positioning system, computerised interface with dispatching systems, and display capabilities in locomotives. Negative train separationNo precautions can prevent sabotage by someone with enough railway knowledge to defeat fail-safe equipment. This was frighteningly demonstrated on December 4 in Nebraska after a Union Pacific freight train was uncoupled, probably while stationary straddling a level crossing, and both brakepipe cocks were closed.The train had unmanned locomotives in the middle operated through a radio link by the driver at the head end. When the driver restarted, both sections accelerated and slowed in accordance with the head-end controls, but the front part had more power and soon outdistanced the 55 wagon rear section. Running at full speed up to 20 km behind the front part, the second section travelled 80 km passing several red signals and dozens of level crossings – including one without protection where a farmer and his pregnant wife were almost killed as the unlit wagons hurtled out of the blackness on a moonless night.The driver of another train eventually spotted the second section and raised the alarm. The dispatcher called the driver of the errant train who made an emergency brake application; both sections came to an immediate halt. UP spokesman John Bromley explained that a brakepipe continuity test is mandatory before a remote control train starts its journey, but there is no requirement to check continuity during brief stops en route. olast_img read more

Molby: Reds must sell Suarez

first_img Press Association The Uruguay international is still on leave after international duty at the Confederations Cup but while he was in Brazil he made a number of references to disliking the way he has been treated by the British media while admitting it would be difficult to turn down a move to Real Madrid. “The last thing you want is an unhappy player and Liverpool know that,” Molby told BBC Radio Merseyside. “They’ve been busy in the market (manager Brendan Rodgers has made four signings already) and it appears they’re almost readying themselves for life without Suarez. “I think he’s made it pretty clear that he would like to try something new, including playing at a club that’s in the Champions League. If that’s how he feels, the club has to do the business.” However, there have been no offers for the 26-year-old and no word from him or his representatives on whether he expressly wishes to leave Anfield. Suarez, who has three years left on a contract signed last summer, is scheduled to return for the Australia and Thailand legs of the Reds’ pre-season tour and the club do not want the speculation to provide further distraction. But Molby believes if Suarez is as unhappy with aspects of British life as he claims to be then the Reds would be wise to sell him on. There has also been speculation about goalkeeper Jose Reina, also still on holiday after the Confederations Cup, and a return to Barcelona. The arrival of Sunderland’s Simon Mignolet has raised further questions about the Spain international’s future and Molby expects both Reina and Suarez will leave before the end of August. “I’d be surprised if both of them were here on September 1,” he added. “Could you imagine Mignolet wanting to come to Liverpool and not play?” center_img Former Liverpool midfielder Jan Molby believes the club have to sell striker Luis Suarez as keeping an unhappy player is not helpful.last_img read more
