Pharmacies Reduce Hours Due To Pharmacist Shortage

caregive hugging elderly client - Monterey In Home Dementia Care

My local Safeway pharmacy began closing for lunch between 1:00 and 2:00 every day more than a year ago.  I find this annoying as many times I have forgotten that they would be closed and have shown up at 1:00 just as they are closing.  Even more annoying is coming back at 2:00 as there is always a long line of people who have been waiting around since 1:00 or 1:30.  The Wall Street Journal reported today that this is a phenomenon all across the country as there is a shortage of pharmacists.  CVS has announced that starting in March it will cut or shift hours at about two-thirds of its 9,000 U.S. locations.  Walmart also announced it will close at 7:00 p.m. rather than 9:00 p.m. at most of its 4,600 stores starting in March.  Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. recently stated it was operating thousands of stores on reduced hours because of staffing shortages.  Some customers have complained that pharmacies are cutting hours sporadically.  An online community message board for Holliston, Massachusetts—a small town about 30 miles from Boston—was flooded with messages from frustrated customers of the Holliston CVS.  “I would go in and there was a note on the door saying, ‘Sorry, pharmacy closed,’” Audra Friend told The Wall Street Journal.  She said it would be better to have consistently shorter hours if that means fewer unexpected closures.  “At least that way we’re not just showing up at CVS to find out the pharmacist isn’t there.  “

Caregiver Turnover A Huge Problem For Seniors

A woman holding an old woman's hand and walking

The Wall Street Journal today ran an article on Mary Barket, a 66-year old widow with a degenerative muscular disorder and no family to help her.  She has had seven different caregivers come through her house in the last six months.  On a recent Saturday morning, the home care agency called her and told her the caregiver wasn’t coming that day and they had no substitute.  Ms. Barket had only one meal to last her until Monday when the next caregiver was scheduled to arrive.  “My hands don’t work.  I can’t even open a box.  It’s a very tenuous situation, Ms. Barket told The Journal.  She has ALS and can’t survive without help.  The median turnover in 2021 was about 65% last year, according to Home Care Pulse.  This is an improvement from the peak of 81.6% in 2018, but is still a huge number.  At Family inHome Caregiving, we are fortunate to have one of the lowest turnover rates in the industry.  We do this by supporting out caregivers with training and financial incentives like bonuses, insurance, a profit-sharing plan and an annual thank you dinner.  It’s still difficult to recruit caregivers given the tight market.  However, hanging on to the excellent caregivers is a huge priority for us.

Diet One Of The Keys To Longevity

Fresh and colorful vegetables and fruits on the table

Eating healthier can increase your life span and there are some delicious and nutritious options such as the Mediterranean diet.  Simple carbs like white rice and potatoes lack the fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals of more complex grains, Emma Newell, a registered dietician at NourishRx told AARP Bulletin (December 2022/January 2023, page 21).  Choosing smarter options can lower cholesterol, stabilize blood sugar, improve gut health and boost energy levels.  The alternative isn’t just brown rice.  Chef Franklin Becker of the Press Club Grill has some suggestions on high-fiber carb side dishes which are delicious.  These include barley, which is subtly sweet and chewy and goes well with salads, Korean dishes or paired with bitter greens like escarole.  Farro is also a good choice, and goes well in pilafs, salads, steamed with kale and squash, or cooked risotto-style with Parmesan cheese.  You can also give bulger a shot.  It is often used in Turkish cuisine and has a popcorn like scent when cooked.
