Lauren's Hope Joins The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

  
  
  
ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

If you've been online in the last few weeks, odds are you have heard about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This terrific awareness campaign has gone viral online, inspiring people from all over to help raise awareness and funds for the ALS Association. The gist is that if someone challenges you, you have 24 hours to either make an ice bucket video yourself or donate $100 to the ALS Association. From July 29 to August 20, 2014, the ALS Association received $31.5 million dollars in donations, compared with $1.9 million over the same time last year! What a difference social media makes!

When people think of reasons a person would wear medical ID jewelry, they typically list things like diabetes, food allergies, drug allergies, epilepsy, heart conditions, and Alzheimer's. And while all of these conditions are important reasons to wear medical alert jewelry, there is one group of conditions that is largely overlooked: mental health disorders.

Talking about health care surrogates, power of attorney representatives, medical proxies, and advance directives is something most people avoid. It’s natural to think we have time to deal with these issues or say, “Oh, I really need to look into that someday.” The truth is, “someday” often gets pushed off again and again until it’s really too late.

It's July, and for most of the country, that means we are not remotely done with swimming weather. By this time of the year, the standard social media articles have made the rounds, reminding us all to wear sunscreen, stay hydrated, and take breaks from the heat. Some other great tips have surfaced recently, though, so today, we're lising our Top 5 Summer Tips of 2014.


Engraving Your Medical ID Jewelry Right

Every day, we have the opportunity to speak with Lauren's Hope customers, and many call because they're simply not sure what to engrave on medical ID jewelry. This is certainly something worth spending time considering, as your medical alert bracelet is the one thing that can always be counted on to advocate for you in those scary moments when you simply cannot do so for yourself.

So far at my time here at Lauren’s Hope, I’ve had the privilege of hearing some really inspiring stories from and about Lauren’s Hope customers. This one, though, I found to be especially neat because it involves our very own Lauren, the namesake of our company.


Navigating Your Durable Medical Equipment Company

Years ago, I learned about Durable Medical Equipment (DME) companies when my husband was diagnosed with sleep apnea and had to get a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine. I quickly learned that within our insurance policy, there was a little section on which medical devices were covered, when, why, how often, how much, and for which conditions. It was confusing to say the least. Fortunately, my husband went to our approved local DME shop, got fitted for his alien space helmet (have you seen one of these things?), and that was the end of that. Every year or so he would go get updated equipment, but really, there wasn't much to it.

Hope quote Van Gogh

At Lauren’s Hope, we have a wall filled with customers’ letters. Several of us keep “love letter” files in our desk drawers, many accompanied by wonderful photographs of the incredible people we are fortunate enough to have as lifelong customers. Hearing from our customers is one of our favorite parts of what we do here at LH. We are consistently humbled by customers’ stories of hope, gratitude, tenacity, and love.
