Three Ways To Making Winning Connections

Your business is built on networking and connecting with the right people.

Network marketing events are a great way to connect with other like minded people. However just handing out a business card and hoping to get results is not going to get you very far.

First

One must decide what it is they want to achieve from meeting new people. For example, if you are in a health and wellness company and are looking for new people to join your organization, then it would benefit you to go to meetings about nutrition and fitness.

Second

Developing personal relationships is the greatest key factor to making a winning connection.

Recently I read an article by Martin Zwillining titled 5 Stratagies For Making Winning Business Connections he states, “Learn to work with people and build strong relationships “.

Building relationships helps others to trust in you. Trust in your belief system and your company.

Third

1. Write down your goals.

2. A great source I’ve used is the website meetup .com. Just plug in your area and what your interested in and a whole list of meetings will come up.

3. Be open minded. Connections can come from anywhere if you are looking in the right places.

I’ve found being friendly to others, showing caring, being concerned about another person helps make that connection work.

Leave your thoughts in the comments.

Five Tips When Choosing A Home Heath Care Provider

Choosing a home health care agency for your loved one can be overwhelming. Shopping for one there are certain factors I recommend as a health care professional. You want your loved ones to feel safe and cared for in your absence.

What is home health care? Home health care is started when some one is no longer able to care for themselves in their own home due to recent falling or failing health issues.
The term home care is used to distinguish non-medical care or custodial care, which is care that is provided by persons who are not nurses, doctors, or other licensed medical personnel, whereas the term home health care, refers to care that is provided by licensed personnel.

Licensed personnel consist of nurses, LPN’s (Licensed Practical Nurse), Respiratory Therapist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist.

1. Talk to the doctors and case managers to find out what your loved one’s insurance will cover. Most agencies accept Medicare and Private Pay, some accept Medicaid.

2. Call at least three home health companies and do a comparison of services and how friendly they were to you on the phone. (I am a big believer in phone edicate and how a person treats me from a company is how they will treat my loved one).

3. Research the Medicare site for their input. Medicare holds the standards for all home care companies and they must adhere to them or face penalties and fines for not abiding by the rules.

4. Types of Services They Offer Not all agencies are the same. Some offer skilled nursing care, certified nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy and respiratory therapy. While other agencies might offer specialized care such as

Argus Home Health Care in Denver, Pueblo, Canyon City, La Junta (Ark Valley) in Colorado.

For example they offer the following services:

  • Medical Services
  • Brain Injury Services
  • Non Medical Services
  • Electronic Monitoring

Okay I am a little bias about Argus Home Health because I recently accepted a job with them as their Quality Assurance Manger.

I would encourage you to choose the company that is the right fit for you and your loved one.

5. Interview the top three sites that you liked from the phone calls. A great resource AgingInPlace provides questions to ask:

Do they do a guaranteed background checks for in-home care candidates they employed?

What level of training and experience do their caregivers offer?

Medical training and licensed candidates if you require medically qualified assistance?

Availability of caregiver staff (days of the week, holiday coverage, backup staff if needed, live-in services if needed)?

Do they take your or your loved ones insurance?

The AARP has an amazing questionnaire to use as a tool when asking questions.

I suggest using the PDF version which I have here for you to download AARP Caregiving Checklist Download.

Facing the decision to have a stranger come into your home to help care for your loved one can be a scary thought. By providing a resource of information my hope is to help make this decision a little easier.

I am a licensed and Certified respiratory therapist here in Denver, CO. I have over twenty-six years experience.
