As pioneers in the healthcare industry, we feel it is important to help guide our clients and the elderly in the community on the process of obtaining a medical marijuana card. We are here to provide the correct information, access to the most trusted physicians in Florida, provide a step-by-step guide that assures legitimacy, and helps reduce the anxiety about the process itself. With the ability to publish information online, folks have become targets and are highly susceptible to exposure to mis-information, thus should rely heavily on the network provided to them by their already trusted caregivers/companion care takers.
Make sure you are working with diligent professionals and have information to make the right decisions.
Quality Health Care Concierge clients may be referred to an internal and highly rated physician network. Our companion staff may accompany people to their initial assessment visit to their physician of choice. Once that physician provides a comprehensive assessment with a diagnosis for their patient, they then write a prescription-like recommendation that provides details of the product, route, frequency, and potential adverse effects. The following steps include being registered on the Florida Medical Marijuana Use Registry online where the Department of Health requires a yearly payment of $75, prompting obtaining a Medical Marijuanna Card within 10 business days. Florida qualifies ten chronic conditions that deem to be debilitating and allowing for prescription of Medical Marijuana. These conditions include the following: ALS, MS, AIDS, HIV, Glaucoma, Cancer, Epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Crohn’s Disease, PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), and many similar conditions.
Quality Health Care Concierge then suggests that their caregivers and/or companions accompany clients to a dispensary of choice in order to have vetted professionals find the right product for each individual. Let’s make this process as simple as possible to facilitate the right decision in speaking with professionals. Our team will be there to provide personalized care to assist in reduction of anxiety in the processes from the initial discussion, research, and most significant: how to obtain a medical marijuana card in Florida.
What is holistic care for the elderly? This question is often discussed amongst elderly and their caregivers or medical providers. Elderly often wonder how a holistic plan can be one that is both beneficial and effective while providing the results that can be measured. In evaluating the effects of a holistic approach, the individual must assess their needs as a whole person. Rather than just focusing on one specific diagnosis or ailment that has become chronic, a person might consider their entire way of life as a blank slate in painting a healthier lifestyle. Holistically, a whole person has many facets that contribute to their overall well-being such as mind, body, and soul. Quite often, specific needs of the elderly are overlooked such as spiritual needs, loneliness and social isolation, and independence in self-care.
How can these important factors of well-being for the elderly affect their overall health? Let’s consider one of the holistic markers of care: independence in self-care. When elderly remain feeling independent in their self-care, they show signs of improvement to cognitive functioning and memory, lower feelings of anxiety/depression, potential less feelings of social isolation, and other organic factors that contribute to a better overall well-being, such as better sleep. Oftentimes, it takes a team of professionals to contribute to a holistic health approach for wellness. Quality Health Care Concierge provides personalized private companion care and allows for all of their clients to have access to a wide-range of holistic care practitioners in the state of Florida. Many of our partners provide support services to help our clients remain independent, on the right track, supported, and monitored holistically! Some of our favorite services include those of Geriatric Care Management Senior Options Enrichment Program that provides evidence-based strategies for senior mental health during the pandemic.

As we all are aware, the current rate of rise in positive Florida COVID-19 cases has become faster than ever. It is highly important that all people stay informed, practice safe distancing, and practice common sharing of goals to move out of this state of unhealthy growth in disease throughout the United States. As we move forward, the home health care industry strives to move to the top of all healthcare providers that take reduction of disease very seriously and recognized as a significant entity in prevention of disease in the healthcare realm.
“We are now having 40-plus thousand new cases a day. I would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a day if this does not turn around and so I am very concerned,” Fauci told the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee during a hearing on the pandemic as the US reported more than 50,000 new Covid-19 cases. As of today, Florida has over 370,000 confirmed cases with more than 5,000 confirmed deaths; Palm Beach having about 27,000 confirmed cases and 700 deaths. More information can be found at this handy unofficial Florida COVID dashboard.
So, how do we move forward safely and help prevent disease spread? Fauci and US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield stressed the significance of wearing masks during testimony before a Senate committee earlier this month, with Fauci saying “we recommend masks for everyone” and “masks are extremely important.” In home health care and with Quality Health Care Concierge, we take part in the ultimate prevention by providing exceptional quality companion care with a high retention rate of caregivers who are compassionate, trust-worthy, well-educated and trained, and provide specialized care in the comfort of the client’s homes. They are always providing all care needs with the proper personal protective equipment such as masks, gloves, and even gowns. All private caregivers from Quality Health Care Concierge are very careful in helping their clients remain safe by running errands, personal care, pet care, and even assist with increasing mental health needs through providing holistic care support and truly caring about their client’s needs.
It’s important to stay safe and diligent as each person makes decisions that influence the community.
