St. Chris Care at Washington Township
Sports Safety For Children
Children + sports = a winning combination. Regular exercise provided through sports can help children develop strong bones, control weight, decrease the risk of developing type 2 diabetes, improve sleep, be academically motivated and build self- confidence. Playing sports also can be fun, but it does have a downside. Approximately 2 million children under the age of 15 are treated in emergency departments annually for sports-related injuries. That’s why it’s so important for parents to take an active role in sports safety for their children.

Some of the most common sports-related injuries are sprains and strains. Children also can experience growth plate and repetitive motion injuries, as well as heat-related illnesses. Injuries can be either traumatic, such as a broken bone caused by a single application of force, or chronic, which result from repetitive training over a period of time. Injuries can occur for a number of reasons, including accidents, improper training or lack of appropriate gear.

Some sports injuries are inevitable, but parents can take steps to minimize risk while encouraging their children to participate in regular physical activity.
* Children should have a physical examination before beginning an exercise program or training.
* Gradually increase the time and intensity of workouts to avoid overuse injuries.
* Choose activities appropriate for the child’s developmental level.
* Teach children how to follow the rules of the game.
* Provide the necessary gear that protects, fits properly and is appropriate for the sport.
* Make sure every exercise routine has a warm-up and cool-down period.
* Provide plenty of water or sports drink while playing to ensure proper hydration.
* Use sunscreen to reduce the risk of skin cancer that can occur later in life.
* Do not allow children to play when they are very tired or in pain.

If an injury does occur, seek professional medical treatment if necessary. Make sure the injury heals completely before playing again. Start playing slowly and protect the injured area with a brace or special equipment.

From neighborhood soccer teams to high school football teams, more than 30 million children participate in organized sports in the United States. Even more are involved in recreational activities, such as biking or hiking. Parents should help their children select sports that match their personalities and fitness levels so they will want to practice more and improve their abilities. This physical competence can, in turn, help build both confidence and self-esteem.

Orthopedics and Sports Medicine are two of the pediatric specialties at St. Chris Care at Washington Township. St. Chris Care at Washington Township, located at 405 Hurffville-Cross Keys Road, brings advanced care and experienced pediatric specialists closer to home for many South Jersey residents.

Brandywine Senior Living
Care Is Paramount But Fun is Brandywine.
Studies show that seniors who have social connections are linked directly to overall good health and longevity. While socialization is critical for all people, regardless of age, seniors can be more susceptible to isolation. Decreased socialization can derive from the loss of a spouse, the inability to drive and be independent, or even various health issues. Research has indicated that an active social lifestyle is more important than ever in helping seniors maintain a sharp mind, remain connected to the world, increase feelings of happiness, and develop a sense of belonging. The need for human contact and interaction is crucial.

Assisted living communities can provide a beautiful living environment, delicious and nutritious dining, and a wide array of social and educational choices, but also have the supportive health and wellness services. Brenda J. Bacon, President and CEO of Brandywine Senior Living says it best - “By providing adventure, excitement and discovery to our residents every day gives them a reason to get out of bed in the morning.”

Brandywine believes taking ordinary arts and activities programs and making them extraordinary is key. Having the same routine week after week only causes boredom and apathy.

Betty lived in the same condo for over 30 years. After experiencing the snowstorms of last winter, her daughters started exploring assisted living possibilities. Betty agreed to move to Brandywine, for everyone’s peace of mind. She knew her children were worried about her and she was not taking care of herself by not eating right and skipping meals.

She was losing weight and sleeping a lot. When she thought about it, moving seemed like an adventure. Betty recalls “The first time I got off the elevator I heard a voice, ‘Hello Betty, how are you today?’ I was impressed with how friendly, kind and sweet the entire staff was. There was such a warm and friendly feeling. They treated me like their own mother.” Looking back on how she felt when she lived alone, it is a world of difference.

Betty has more energy, made friends and can live her own life and have her needs met without depending on her children or hiring anyone. “Everything,” says Betty, “is right here for me.”

Brandywine found the vital ingredients to improve seniors’ lives through play and interaction with Escapades…for Life! This exciting new program improves healthy minds and spirit, and is now a way of life at Brandywine.

For example, it’s not just exercise – it is Fun Fit & Fabulous – an energized exercise program with certified fitness instructors who motivate, teach (Tai Chi anyone?) and dance to great music. It’s not just nutrition – it’s Cooking with Class – an interactive food extravaganza where the audience not only participates, they also get to taste and rate the culinary delights they make. It’s not just current events – it’s Lifelong Learning – where exciting and intriguing topics engage you in something new every day.

At any age, socialization keeps you young. At Brandywine, life is never boring – it’s beautiful.

Continuum Health Alliance/Advocare LLC
Advocare, The Area’s Largest Independent Private Physician Group Advocare Pediatricians, Primary Care Physicians, and Specialists Care for 500,000 Patients in New Jersey and Pennsylvania

When renowned pediatrician Dr. John M. Tedeschi spearheaded an alliance of South Jersey pediatric practices known as Children’s Health Associates in 1998, he was seeking a way to streamline practice management so that doctors could focus more on the delivery of patient care. Dr. Tedeschi had already proven himself as an innovator in delivering healthcare services in hospitals and outpatient facilities, and was serving on various regional, state, and national committees to promote health and wellness. But while he loved practicing medicine, he was increasingly frustrated by how the business of medicine affected physicians’ ability to focus on patient care. He knew that other doctors shared his desire to spend less time with paperwork and more time with patients.

Ten years after 33 pediatricians united under Dr. Tedeschi’s vision, the private physician group was renamed Advocare to reflect its strong commitment to patient advocacy and superior health care. Many of South Jersey’s finest physicians joined the partnership, attracted to an environment in which doctors can build strong relationships with patients and their families.

Growing beyond pediatrics, Advocare today encompasses more than 250 doctors serving patients at every stage of life, from birth through elder care. In more than 85 offices and leading hospitals throughout New Jersey and the greater Philadelphia region, Advocare pediatricians, primary care doctors, specialists, and nurse practitioners collectively see patients in more than one million visits each year.

Advocare doctors share operational oversight and efficient practice management systems through their relationship with Continuum Health Alliance, LLC, a regional healthcare management company, also led by Dr. Tedeschi. At the core of the area’s largest, independent private physician group is a commitment to serving communities with the highest level of care. Advocare doctors focus on preventive care and wellness, clinical expertise, research, and teaching. And because Advocare is an independent physician group, patients may choose Advocare doctors affiliated with various hospitals throughout New Jersey and the greater Philadelphia metropolitan region. Many Advocare physicians are annually recognized as “Top Docs” in their fields.

Advocare’s partnership philosophy extends beyond the physician group to each and every patient. Dedicated Advocare doctors communicate, collaborate, and believe that wellness is best achieved when doctors, patients, and their families work together towards the goal of good health.

Your Loved Ones Health Care
Emotionally challenging decisions.
It’s one of the most emotionally challenging decisions you will need to make in your lifetime. When is it time to place your aging parent or relative in the care of professionals? And when the time comes, where would you like them to be?

Like all of us, you want your loved ones to receive the best care possible at all times. Innova Health & Rehab specializes in just that - delivering trusted, quality health care and rehabilitation services to patients in the South Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania regions.

A warm, caring environment, Innova’s three facilities in South Jersey – Mount Laurel, Deptford and Hammonton – offer the widest array of health and rehabilitation services focusing on short- and long-term rehab, dialysis, Alzheimer's and dementia care.

The Innova team consists of full-time, licensed health care providers, attending physicians, nurses and staff members who specialize in post-acute care, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, respiratory therapy, social work and therapeutic recreation.

The Step Between Hospital and Home
With insurance-mandated, ever-shrinking windows for post-procedure hospital stays, many patients, once discharged, are not quite ready to go home. Innova Health & Rehab serves as that extra step in between the hospital and home, offering all aspects of rehabilitation and post-surgical care. Your own doctor can visit you to provide any follow-up care needed, while Innova staff ensures you adhere to your medical regimen.

Alzheimer’s, Memory Loss and Long-Term Care
When it comes to long-term care, Innova can make its patients feel at home. Beautiful private and semi-private rooms, exceptional health care services and convenient personal services ensure your loved one’s stay at Innova is comfortable and as home-like as possible.

For those with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of memory loss the Essentia neighborhood offers a meaningful life in a secure and safe environment. A seven-day-a-week therapeutic program, Essentia delivers structure, daily activities and, above all, dignified care to Alzheimer’s and dementia patients.

Living with Renal Failure
Innova’s specialized sub-acute unit for dialysis patients and Lourdes Health System hemodialysis stations on the premises offer comfortable and convenient treatment for patients with inefficient kidney performance. Innova’s unique combination of rehabilitation and dialysis services under one roof, along with a dedicated nurse-liaison bridging the two departments, ensure continuity of care and best treatment outcome for patients.

Bridging Cultures
In 2010 Innova opened a Korean Community unit at its Mt. Laurel location. The unit can accommodate 40 patients, and is designed for first-generation immigrants who speak no English. A dedicated staff of Korean-Americans includes three nurses, an activities coordinator, an office manager, two chefs and an interpreter on-hand 24/7. Korean residents enjoy amenities consistent with their own culture, including popular games, gardening, music and even Korean television stations, and can participate in a daily religious service.

Meanwhile, Innova in Hammonton opened a Spanish language unit, catering to the needs of the area’s Hispanic and Latino populations. The unit is staffed 24/7 with bi-lingual nurses, case workers and other staff.

Advanced Cardiology
Leading The Way In Cardiac Care
Do you have Peripheral Artery Disease?
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is increasingly being recognized as a risk factor for heart disease. PAD is a condition that causes the arteries in the neck (carotid artery) and in the pelvis and legs to become hardened and narrowed due to the buildup of plaque (atherosclerosis).

It affects 10-15 million Americans, nearly 75% of who never have symptoms. In fact, people with PAD have a 6-7 times higher risk of heart attack or stroke. It's incidence increases with age. By age 70, about 30% of the population is afflicted. Those at risk include smokers, diabetics, people with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, family history of PAD, and obesity. It is a disease that is often unrecognized, misdiagnosed, and overlooked by many physicians, since screening is not done early enough.

Early diagnosis is important since untreated PAD can lead to stroke, gangrene in the legs that often leads to amputation, and to death. Common symptoms are pain in the hips, thighs, or calves when walking or climbing stairs. This is known as “intermittent claudication”. This pain goes away when you stop exercising in a few minutes. Many people confuse the leg pain as arthritis, sciatica, or just "stiffness" from getting older.

Those with diabetes may confuse PAD leg pain with neuropathy, a common diabetic symptom which is a burning or painful discomfort of the feet or thighs. Symptoms of severe PAD include foot pain that doesn't go away when you stop exercising, foot or toe wounds that won't heal, or cold lower legs or feet.

If there is PAD in the neck arteries (carotid arteries), symptoms may include intermittent loss of vision, facial numbness, or intermittent weakness in either upper extremity. This is called a TIA (transient ischemic attack) and occurs because there is a blockage in the carotid artery and the brain is not getting enough blood to meet its needs. If left untreated, a significant carotid artery blockage can lead to a stroke. If there is PAD in the aorta it can lead to an aneurysm (a ballooning out/enlargement of the aorta) that if large enough can rupture and lead to death without warning.

PAD can easily be detected by simple tests some of which are done in our office. Early detection is important. These tests include: Doppler duplex imaging of arteries in the neck, legs, and the aorta. This procedure, which is painless and inexpensive, measures the blood flow in the arteries to indicate the presence of a blockage. Other tests if needed include CTA (computed tomographic angiography), MRA, or angiography, and are done in hospitals.

PAD can be treated by diet, lifestyle changes, medications, or surgery. Some of the medications include antiplatelet medications that “thin” the blood and reduce blood clotting. Cholesterol lowering medicine is at times prescribed, to cause plaque in the arteries to “shrink”. For some patients the above recommendations are not enough and they may need angioplasty/ stent placement where a tiny balloon is inflated inside the artery to open up the clog (as is done in the heart), or surgery.

If you have signs/symptoms of PAD or have been diagnosed with PAD and would like to learn more, please call Dr. Vic Bahal at Advanced Cardiology of South Jersey.

UMDNJ Stratford Campus
Meeting the health care needs of the future.

According to a report issued last year by the U.S. Department of Labor, more than three million new jobs will be created by the healthcare industry during the 10-year period of 2008-18. Technological advancements, new developments in how Americans receive health and medical care and the increasingly important role of research and public health make this one of the most dynamic areas in today’s economy, including 10 of the 20 fastest growing occupations in the country. The industry’s needs are not only for new employees, but also for current employees who can add to their expertise through additional education or training.

In Stratford, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) anticipates the future of healthcare while continuing the commitment that UMDNJ has made for more than three decades to meet many of the region’s most pressing health needs.

Although the UMDNJ-School of Osteopathic Medicine remains the flagship school in Stratford, the campus is also home to UMDNJ’s schools of biomedical sciences, dentistry, health related professions, nursing and public health. Students receive a truly inter-professional health sciences experience, with unique educational opportunities and programs in a wide range of health disciplines.

Years before health care reform became part of the American lexicon, UMDNJ schools in Stratford began preparing health care providers to meet America’s future health care needs. In 2006, Dr. Thomas Cavalieri, dean of the UMDNJ-SOM, convened the first meeting of Stratford Campus Inter-School Collaboration Group, consisting of the deans and campus deans from the UMDNJ schools of Osteopathic Medicine, Nursing, Public Health, Biomedical Sciences, Dentistry and Health Related Professions.

“The dynamic interaction of the six UMDNJ schools on the Stratford campus serves as a model for health professions education throughout the country,” Dr. Cavalieri said. “By sharing services, faculty and other education resources, we are developing students today who will lead the culturally competent, inter-professional teams that will be essential in the future.”

Currently, nearly 1,000 students attend programs at one of the six UMDNJ schools on the Stratford campus. Conveniently located just off Route 30 (White Horse Pike) near the Lindenwold PATCO station, UMDNJ provides a wide array of clinical, educational and community service programs throughout the region. From dental services in Atlantic County to primary care for high-risk populations in Cumberland County and community outreach services in Camden, UMDNJ maintains a longstanding dedication to meeting the challenges in South Jersey.

Care One At Harmony Village
Dedicated To Alzheimer’s Care
Voted Burlington County’s best assisted living community.

At Harmony Village, we believe that Alzheimer’s is treatable and agitation, anxiety, aggression, and apathy are not symptoms of the disease but responses to caregiving, medical treatment, and physical environments not designed to support someone living with Alzheimer's. Using ENVIRONMENT, ACTIVITIES, and COMMUNICATION our approach effectively treats many of the most common symptoms of dementia.

ENVIRONMENT: The environment is made to feel like HOME so that people living with Alzheimer's can feel at HOME. Our common spaces are decorated and sized to communicate what the appropriate behaviors are for those areas, as well as, our Gardens that are designed therapeutically, and with safety in mind.

ACTIVITIES : Our activities are designed to increase a person’s sense of purpose and incorporate choice into a person’s day. We focus on our residents strengths by concentrating on available skills in order for them to continue to function at a high level.

COMMUNICATION: We break tasks into simple steps and demonstrate tasks. We speak slowly and distinctly and never test our residents or tell them “NO”. Most importantly we always use nonverbal communication like “Hugs” and “Hand Holding”. The goal is to look for the emotions underneath our residents words and validate their feelings.
