  Cuero Mayor recognizes November as Home Care Month
The home is fast becoming the preferred healthcare choice among elderly, disabled and medically frail Texans. Home care serves to promote independence and keep families together. That is one of the reasons that City of Cuero Mayor Sara Post Meyer has recognized November as National Home Care Month. “Home health care and hospice contributes to billions of dollars in taxpayer savings by preventing or reducing the use of more expensive institutional care options,” said Rachel Hammon, executive director of the Texas Association for Home Care & Hospice (TAHC&H). “Treating individuals at home – whether someone who needs care after leaving the hospital, or a senior or individual with disabilities that needs ongoing attendant services at home - these services decrease re-hospitalizations.” Cuero Home Health, a department of Cuero Regional Hospital, and City Mayor, Sara Post Meyer, recognize the importance of home health services by having an official proclamation signed acknowledging November as Home Care Month. Home Care Month pays tribute to the dedicated professionals who provide high-quality home care and seeks to educate elected officials and the general public about the growing demand for these services as the first choice for post-acute, therapy, hospice, and attendant services throughout Texas and the United States. “Home health care is not just for the elderly. While Cuero Home Health does provide services to many elderly individuals, we also do intermittent short term services to any adult who has recently had an accident or a surgery who temporarily cannot drive and needs help to recover. Some insurances cover home health services and private pay services are also an option. Private pay nursing services often give a son or daughter piece of mind knowing that a skilled nurse is checking on their mom or dad when they can’t be there. Discuss your needs with your doctor and he/she will help determine if you meet the needs for home health services. We would be honored to care for you or your loved one,” said Margaret Krause, RN/Cuero Home Health Administrator.

Yes, with all the products on the market or maybe a short stint at the gym, you can find quick results, but in terms of your health, how healthy is this approach?

Also thank you to our corporate table sponsors: Cuero Pecan House, DeTar Healthcare System, Exibix, Inc, and Yorktown Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. And, how could we have a fashion show without an amazing DJ – thanks to Mike Cantu for supplying the event sound and lights. The fashion show, emceed by Cuero Regional Hospital’s CNO and breast cancer survivor Judy Krupala, featured the hot colors and styles coming this fall and winter from our incredibly talented area boutiques. Thank you to the participating boutiques for supplying models, your time and your exquisite clothing and accessories. We’d like to recognize them: Be. Boutique, Bloomingdeals, Ful-O-Pep, La Femme Boutique, Rendezvous, The Special Stich and The Emporium. A special thank you to the models, many of which were survivors and/or have had family impacted by breast cancer and to our volunteers for the countless hours they put into the event to bring it to life. Lastly, we wish to recognize Ful-O-Pep for their table décor which set the perfect tone to the event and the exceptional luncheon cuisine provided by Cuero Pecan House. Plans are in the works for the 2019 event and we hope to have the community’s support once more as our goal is to continue to raise awareness on this critical topic and encourage women to be proactive for their health and wellbeing. Thank you. Emily Weatherly, Event Coordinator Marketing and Development Coordinator, Cuero Regional Hospital

The incidence of breast cancer is about 1 in 8 women.

  Cuero Health Announces Discontinuing of Central Scheduling Line
In order to reduce patient confusion and frustration, Cuero Health and all clinics under the Cuero Health umbrella will be removing the Central Scheduling line of 1-833-242-3627. Effective immediately, patients are asked to contact each clinic directly rather than call the Central Scheduling line. “While the hope that the creation of the Central Scheduling line would streamline our process and increase patient satisfaction when scheduling appointment, the execution was unfortunately flawed and it indeed caused frustration for our patients. After receiving a negative reception, it is important for our patients to know they have a voice and we at Cuero Health listen. That is why we are removing the Central Scheduling line and returning the process of having our patients’ contact their clinic directly to make their appointment,” said Lynn Falcone, CEO of Cuero Health.
