HERBS FOR HEALTH MANAGEMENT

Herbs are a foundational root in medicine and health treatments, dating back thousands of years throughout every culture around the world. Modern Western herbalism comes from ancient Egypt. The Greeks developed a comprehensive philosophy of herbal medicine by 100 BCE and the Romans built upon it to create a variety of medical practices, some of which are still used today.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IMPACTS PSYCHOLOGICAL HARDINESS

Psychological hardiness is an individual’s resistance to stress, anxiety and depression. It includes the ability to withstand grief and accept the loss of loved ones. Alternative medicine is a more popular term for health and wellness therapies that have typically not been part of conventional Western medical approaches but are often used along with conventional medicinal protocols.  Coping and dealing with stress in a positive manner play a major role in maintaining the balance needed for health and well-being.

went into caring for our parents, and yet no one ever made us feel silly for asking questions. They were prompt and efficient every time we needed help. They reassured us and made sure we could provide the best-quality care for our parents possible. Additionally, they helped us in the learning process of having parents in full-time care.”


It is so refreshing to hear there are professionals who care about their work and care about their clients, both the family and the parents. “Every time something comes along that brings us stress in regarding my parents’ needs, Bluegrass Elderlaw has relieved our concerns,” Greg and Rebecca added. “We’ve never left their offices feeling anything but peaceful and calm. The reality of having loved ones in nursing home care can bring lots of concerns, because it’s the ‘unknown’ for most people. The team has removed those concerns from our family. We can’t recommend their team and services highly enough. We are eternally grateful for Bluegrass Elderlaw!”


With all the uncertainty going on in our world, it’s nice to know that here in the Bluegrass there is a team who cares for our seniors and their families. Bluegrass Elderlaw has a heart to serve and use their skills, talents and passion to work with us and our families. If there is anything your family needs in the area of estate planning, probate, asset preservation, Medicaid assistance, guardianship, trusts and even Special Needs planning, we encourage you to start by talking to the attorneys at Bluegrass Elderlaw.

We work hard to mange our lives, prepare for known expenses, save for our kids’ college tuition and set aside money for retirement. But nothing fully gets us ready for what the later stages of life may throw our way, especially when you have family who are in their senior years. All kinds of new challenges can come your way, such as health issues, where to live, how to take care of estates, etc. And if we are honest, we can feel very helpless or lost.


That’s what happened with Greg and Rebecca. Greg’s mom and dad are in their 80s, and Greg found himself dealing with the issues of long-term care and memory and medical care for his parents. Then came the confusing maze of dealing with Medicaid and getting them to help pay. Greg and Rebecca shared with us what led them to look for help.


 “Our family was faced with placing both of our parents in skilled nursing care very suddenly in the summer of 2020,” they said. “This was emotional and overwhelming on so many levels. We were confused and a little afraid because we wanted to do our best by our parents. We had many questions and were completely uncertain how to do things and not sure if we were doing things correctly. To put it mildly, we felt unsure of everything!”


These times are not easy, especially in 2020 with the COVID-19

THE PEACE OF KNOWING IT'S ALL GOING TO BE OK

pandemic. The uncertainty of the economy and now having to navigate these tough waters of senior care added to Greg and Rebecca’s stress. That’s when they turned to the attorneys at Bluegrass Elderlaw, a legal practice that works 100 percent with all the ins and outs of senior care, from wills and trusts, estate planning, guardianship, Medicaid help and so much more. We asked the couple to share what it was like when they first worked with Bluegrass Elderlaw.


“From the moment we met Katie (Katie E. Finnell, Attorney) and the team at Bluegrass Elderlaw, we were put at ease,” they said. “Not only did they answer the questions we had, but they helped us think through all the things we couldn’t possibly know, never having had to deal with these types of issues. Katie always says, ‘It’ll be fine.’ And it has been, with their guidance and reassurance. Coop (Carolyn McCown, Medicaid Paralegal) helped us in amazing ways to navigate the Medicaid process, which was pivotal in caring for our parents and their long-term needs.”


We further asked them, “How did this experience with the law firm give you hope and assurance during this time?” They responded, “We were unaware of all that
