Myths and Misconceptions

Myths and Misconceptions:

We provide unique views and insight to topics that you would otherwise not get. In addition, to more detailed discussions of topics on the free blog we cover two additional strings that help the reader interface and apply the theory we discuss on the free blog. Those two sections are Myths and miss conceptions and Case manager corner.

Myths and misconceptions.
Myths and miss conceptions is about alerting and educating you to be cautious on how you hear and understand many of the terms used in health care. Misleading words might include “Assisted Living”, “Normal”, or Needed and “Not Needed”. A second, set of misleading items are numbers like we pay 80% or even 100%. Sign up now to learn why in some cases you may not want the one that pays 100%.

For example, many may not realize how something as simple as mis understanding the definition of “Assisted Living” might affect your decision of which care setting is best for you. We help you see beyond the mere definition of “Assisted Living” which will mean different things to each person when you quantify what you get, from whom, at what time and at what dollar cost. The facility offering the amount, degree and type of assistance might not value or define the amount, degree, type, or timing of the “Assistance” as you do. We help residents and families see beyond the words to help them better access and compare types of assistance. Through discussion with families, other members, we help members reevaluate what they think they need, want, and is available to them when making this difficult choice. We emphasize high quality care requires a relationship with the people providing the care. We believe continuity of care is a necessity to each resident and family valuing the Assistance as high quality assistance. The more continuity of care the better the resident will feel about the care. We feel that by considering continuity of care, the care you get will be of higher quality and more of the care we think people expect when they define the word “Assistance”.
If you just learn how the doctor, insurance company, lawyers, advertisers and others define the same words you use you will be more informed when you hear them. Words and phrases like “You must leave or you must go to a nursing home may not mean “must” if you decide to choose something else. We want to help everyone see choices that they may be passing up today.


These Medical myths and misconceptions are common in all care settings including Assisted Living, Residential Care Homes, Hospice Care, Home Care, Dementia Care, Alzheimer’s Care, Memory Care, Nursing Home Care, Elder Care, Respite Care and Adult Day Care.  Knowing what you and the other person mean when they use a term helps you understand what both of you will expect.
