Tue, Feb 18 11:32am · Hearing Aid Locator in Hearing Loss

Thanks, tonyinmi. They try pretty hard to keep track of them, but it's hard to know if my mom is taking them out and leaving them somewhere outside of her room, or if other residents are coming in and taking them. All kinds of things go missing from her room and things that don't belong to her show up in her room. From what I understand, that's pretty common in these facilities.

I'll take a look at the Pocketalker. If nothing else, it may bridge the gap between when a hearing aid goes missing and is found.

My mom is in a memory care facility and has severe loss of hearing. The problem is that her hearing aids go missing. The caretakers remove them each night and place them in their locked carts, but it's still not the unusual for one of hearing aids to go missing for days/weeks.

Do they make hearing aids or hearing aid accessories that have some way of locating them if they go missing? I'm thinking of something where you could cause the the hearing aid to start beeping to help in locating it.

I've read a lot of good things about Dr. Andrea Natale at the Texas Cardiac Arrhythmia Institute.

I think one year is the normal time between shots, but I have CLL so the CDC guidelines allow the second shot after two months. Sorry, I should have mentioned that in my original comments.

I went in last year and had the first Shingrix (shingles) shot in one arm and the first pneumonia shot (PCV13) in the other arm. Two months later I got the second Shingrix shot in one arm and the second pneumonia shot in the other (PPSV23). Both times I no adverse reactions.

Dec 11, 2019 · Night Sweats for no reason in Women's Health

Based on sprocket's description, it sounds like she is having drenching night sweats. There are a number of different things that could be causing them (see link below), but I wouldn't ignore it. Her post caught my eye because it's a symptom of CLL, which I have. Chances are, that's not the cause, but having a CBC can rule it out and many some of the other causes.

I would suggest you have a Complete Blood Count (CBC) with Differential performed.

Oct 7, 2019 · Behavioral Units for Dementia in Caregivers: Dementia

Thanks for that information. Is it typically a short term stay until they find the right medicinal cocktail? If they're not able to find the right mix, can a person stay in these behavioral units long term? From what I can tell, they are in acute care hospitals, so that makes me think of a more limited duration stay.
