After Three Hour Tryouts -Ready To Go

Bradford Journal Photo It was the night for cheerleader tryouts, Friday, May 2nd at Bradford Area High School, and most of those participating give us a confident pose on one of the stairways at the school. According to Jen Jordan, Assistant Cheerleading Coach there, thirty-four tried out, and twenty-four were selected for the squad. According to Jen, all cheerleaders must try out each year. This year the squad will have only 10 returning members. Jen also mentioned that all who tried out, worked very hard and that the tryouts were wonderful.

5 ¢ENTS WORTH

by Grant Nichols

We spent a few hours over the last weekend at this year’s Stinkfest, and while the crowds were a little thinner than the previous years, the event was as wonderfully stinky as ever. Leak flavored dishes were available from the vendors along East Main Street and from the various eating and drinking establishments along the way. Once again their were pony rides and a carnival for the amusement of the children, outdoor vendors peddling everything from satellite TV programming to jewelry, and a good deal of socializing along the whole route. Since the weather was slightly inclement this year, we took more photos inside various locations along East Main Street. In particular, we spent time at Monte’s Restaurant, the New Keystone, and Togi’s Sub Station…….In addition, we attended the Bradford YMCA Barracuda Swim Team 2013-2014 Awards Banquet and took videos and photos, a few of which can be found on the pages of this edition. All of the award winners and videos can be found in the photo gallery associated with this issue…….. Our readers will soon, once again, have an opportunity to discover the origin of the following business wise, and memorable quotation, tailored for our times: “In an age of rapidly expanding technology, the acquisition and exploitation of intellectual property is the single most successful business strategy on the planet.”…….. Ron Peters, President of the Bradford Vets Club tells us that the VFW Post 212 is presenting a Mother’s Day Brunch at the Bradford Vets Club’s Event Center on Mother’s day, May 11th. It will be held from 9:30AM until 2PM and include a full breakfast, chicken & biscuits, and dessert. In addition, a carnation will be given to each mom. The tariff for this meal is only $8.00 for adults, and $4.00 for children over ten. Children under 10 eat free…….. Verizon telephone land lines were out of service in the downtown area of the City of Bradford, May 6th. We can remember when one of the arguments for keeping land lines, after the advent of cell phones, was that land lines were more reliable. For example “What would we do to communicate if the cell phone satellites failed, or the cell phone towers failed? How would we keep our businesses running? What we witnessed in downtown Bradford was just the reverse. While people had cell phone communication, many businesses who had credit/debit card machines connected to land lines could not complete on the spot, monetary transactions. Our question at this point is, “Who is legally liable for such loss of revenue in the downtown business district?”

It’s A Matter Of Opinion... Guest Columnist “Keystone XL”

-by Bob Perry

Building the Keystone XL Pipeline will clearly make North America a more secure energy producing continent by reducing dependence on foreign energy supplies and creating jobs, both in the short term in the building of the pipeline and long term with the processing of the oil. Safety in the transportation of the oil has statistics on the side of a pipeline as there are fewer incidences per mile than trains and trucks carrying oil in addition to reducing the injuries of the workers. Five impact statements have been produced by by the State Department and all have reached the same conclusions that the pipeline would have minimal environmental impact and the water resources would not be put at risk. Currently the US imports 7 - 8 million barrels of oil per day, and by becoming self-sufficient in energy production we would realize the stabilization of energy prices. Economically the pipeline would add more than $3,000,000,000 (3 billion) to the US GDP and we all can agree that this would be a positive result. More jobs would produce more taxes for localities, states and the federal government. As a shovel-ready project the jobs to be created would support more than 42,000 direct and indirect workers. This is a no-brainer! Without question the pipeline is a huge benefit to both United States and Canada and the possibility still exists that China may be the benefactor if the project never gets approved. The unions are one of the strongest sup-

porters of this project and it is clear that if the President does not approve this by election time the party of the president will suffer consequences at the polls. Eleven Senate Democrats have sent letters to the President urging the approval of the project, and it is a key issue to the Senate candidates who may well lose their elections without approval. Those objecting to the approval are environmentalist who are strong supporters of the President, but who garners more votes at the ballot box? The unions or the environmentalist? A decision on approving the pipeline was delayed before the 2012 presidential election and here we are two years later and the decision is still on delay. 1700 miles of pipeline transporting 700,000 barrels of this oil per day is most compelling to have it shipped by pipeline and the time to build it is long overdue. Like numerous other major issues that face us, without the right decision or a delay of a decision, this decision not being made makes one conclude that that is the way he, (President Obama), wants it. The power of a President can have dramatic effects on our lives and the lives of generations to follow. The national debt alone is so very large that every conclusion I have known about declares it can never be repaid. And the saga continues as President Obama makes it clear it is the way he wants it. Is he our friend?

BUSINESS & PERSONAL FINANCES Help Your Mom Get Organized for Mother’s Day Mother’s Day is May 11. If you’re wracking your brain for ways to show your mom appreciation for all the sacrifices she made while raising you, here’s a thought: Why not offer to spend some time helping to sort through her financial, legal and medical paperwork to make sure everything is in order? While flowers and candy offer immediate gratification, I’ll bet your mom will truly appreciate the long-term value of getting her records in order now so that she – and you – will be able to take appropriate actions later on, should the need arise. Some of the areas you might want to organize include: Retirement income sources. Gather these documents so your mom will have a better idea how much income she’ll have available throughout retirement: • Register your mom at mySocialSecurity (www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount) to gain access to personalized estimates of retirement, disability and survivors benefits, lifetime earnings records and estimated Social Security and Medicare taxes paid. • You’ll also need your dad’s statement to determine any potential spousal or survivor benefits for which she might be eligible, so sign him up as well. • Annual statements for pension, IRA, 401(k) or other retirement savings plans for which she’s eligible. (Check your dad’s statements too in case she’s eligible for spousal death benefits.) • Bank statements for checking, savings, money market and CD accounts. • Company stock and bond certificates, and statements for other investment accounts. Outstanding debts. Also gather monthly statements and outstanding balances owed for major expenses including: home mortgage or other property loans, home equity loan or line of credit, car loan or lease, credit cards, medical bills and personal loans. Other important documents. Your mom should have documents instructing how she’d like her affairs to be handled, both while she’s living and after death. Look for: • Medical, homeowner/renter, auto, life, disability and long-term care insurance policies. • A will (and possibly a trust) outlining how she wants her estate managed after death. • Durable power of attorney and health care proxy specifying who will make her financial and medical deci-

-by Jason Alderman

sions if she becomes incapacitated. • Also, a living will tells doctors which medical treatments and lifesupport procedures she does or doesn’t want performed. • Birth certificate, marriage license, Social Security card, funeral plans, safe deposit box information, etc. • Contact information for professional service providers (doctors, pharmacy, lawyer, financial advisor, bank, insurance companies, etc.) Also give these providers your own contact information in case of emergencies. Review these documents regularly and make updates whenever her situation changes. For example, make sure that designated beneficiaries for your mom’s will, life insurance and retirement plans accurately reflect her current wishes. If you need help guiding financial discussions, Social Security has created a special website for women (www.ssa. gov/women) that provides information on retirement, disability and other issues – in English and Spanish. They also have a Retirement Estimator (www.ssa. gov/estimator) that enters her earnings information from their records to estimate her projected Social Security benefits under different scenarios (age at retirement, future earnings projections, etc.) Another good resource is the Women’s Saving Initiative, a program jointly developed by Heinz Family Philanthropies, the Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) and Visa Inc. This program features a free book called “What Women Need to Know About Retirement,” which you can download

as a PDF or audio file at: www.practicalmoneyskills.com/resources If you need professional help, consult a licensed financial planner who can design a personalized retirement strategy. If you don’t know one, try the Financial Planning Association (www. plannersearch.org).

ON THE HEALTHY SIDE Meet Health Care’s AICR HealthTalk -by Karen Collins, MS, RD, CDN Secret Weapons: American Institute for Cancer Research Q. I’d like to eat more whole grains, but I need to limit sodium, and many Pathologists are surprisingly high in sodium. What do you suggest? A: One easy way to get whole grains is with breads and cereals, though whether whole grain or not, these do often contain high amounts of sodium. So, to keep sodium in check, try expanding your vision of whole grains to less processed options. Compare labels to find lower sodium options like old-fashioned or oneminute oatmeal rather than instant, and shredded wheat rather than higher-sodium types of cereals. Instead of prepared whole-grain mixes, like boxed seasoned brown rice, that include large amounts of sodium (some contain about 500 mg of sodium per serving), choose plain, unseasoned whole grains (0 mg sodium) and add your own herbs, lemon juice and other sodium-free flavorings. Some whole grains that cook in less than 15 minutes include bulgur, quick-cooking brown rice, whole-wheat couscous, quinoa and whole-grain pasta. Try wild rice, millet, barley, wheat berries, amaranth and freekeh (“free-kuh”) when you have more time. If some of these grains are unfamiliar to you, check the Whole Grains Council website <http://wholegrainscouncil.org/whole-grains-101/whole-grainsa-to-z> or recipes from the American Institute for Cancer Research <http://www. (NAPSI)—The next time you or some- aicr.org/reduce-your-cancer-risk/diet/reduce_diet_recipes_test_kitchen.html> one you care about needs hospitalization for ideas. Then have fun experimenting! or just a medical test, your well-being could depend on a medical professional you may have never even see: your pathologist. Who Are Pathologists? Pathologists are board-certified physicians who use technology such as digital imagery, advanced screening tools, molecular-based diagnoses and others that were once just imagined to identify and diagnose disease. Pathology and laboratory results comprise as much as 70 percent of the information in a patient’s health record. Pathologists are investigators on whom every medical specialist relies to provide a range of services, from prenatal testing to cancer screening, to guide the clinical team on how to treat their patients. The right test at the right time can make all the difference in diagnosis, treatment and recovery. The pathologist’s pursuit of precision extends across a continuum of care during a patient’s lifetime. What Pathologists Do For example: • By helping health care providers pick the right test at the right time, unnecessary testing and unnecessary procedures are avoided. • Pathologists use molecular testing to look for multiple drug-resistant organisms in patients and identify those at high risk for a surgical site infection so doctors can proactively treat that patient and avoid the problem. • They’re on call to examine samples taken during surgery and to review those results, which can be life-changing. • Pathologists also provide data and data analysis about the entire population of patients so doctors can determine who’s likely to be at high risk for cardiac disease, vascular disease and diabetes. Seeing trends lets doctors be proactive and

plan for what the community needs. The diagnostic truths that pathologists reveal can help all of society lead better, healthier lives.

REGIONAL & AREA NEWS Statewide Mentored Youth Fishing Day Set for May 10 (HARRISBURG, PA) -Excitement is building among anglers and kids for the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s (PFBC) popular Mentored Youth Fishing Day, which will be held on May 10 on 41 waters across the state. So far, nearly 1,800 kids have obtained a free permit to fish on the day, and another 1,300 have purchased a voluntary youth fishing license. “We’re excited that so many mentors and kids are making plans to participate in the program,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “This program is designed to encourage adults to take kids fishing, to show them that fishing is fun, and to promote active, outdoor recreation. With warmer weather now here, we are prepared to deliver a great experience.” The program was originally scheduled over two days, March 22 and April 5, but was rescheduled into one statewide day because of unusually cold weather and unexpected ice cover. “The pilot program last year was a huge hit with anglers and their friends and we have received nothing but positive comments about it,” Arway added. “Adults and kids are excited and we want to keep it that way.” “To ensure kids and their mentors have an outstanding chance to catch fish on May 10, we will stock a fresh load of trout at each water on May 9,” he added. “Then the waters will be closed to all fishing from noon on May 9 until 8 a.m. on May 10.” The program waters will be open on May 10 only for mentored youth day participants from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., and anglers may keep two trout. After 7:30 p.m. the waters will be open to all anglers and the standard regulations on those waters will apply. To participate, adult anglers (16 years or older) must have a valid fishing license and trout/salmon permit and be accompanied by a youth. Youth anglers must obtain a free PFBC-issued permit or a voluntary youth fishing license. Both are available at www.GoneFishingPA.com or at any of the more than 900 licensing agents across the state. Also, the PFBC is reminding anglers that the process to participate this year has changed. Last year, participants registered online. Because the program is expanding statewide this year, and with an eye to the future, the PFBC is now using the Pennsylvania Automated License Service (PALS) to issue youth permits and voluntary licenses. “Issuing permits and licenses through PALS allows us to collect and

manage information regarding youth anglers,” said Carl Richardson, PFBC education section manager. “Specifically, this process provides us with more customer data for better assessment of lifelong fishing license buying habits and to develop programs designed to retain anglers.” As a result, anglers must create a separate customer account for each child in the PALS system. In order to obtain the permit or voluntary license, the youth’s address, social security number, date of birth, height and eye color must be provided at the time of the transaction. Phone number and e-mail address are optional. These may be added to the customer’s profile at a later time by following the instructions in The Outdoor Shop at www.GoneFishingPA.com. Click here for detailed instructions. For every voluntary youth license sold, the PFBC will receive approximately $5 in federal revenue from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Act program, which provides funds to states based on a formula that includes the number of licenses a state sells. All revenues earned from a voluntary youth fishing license will be dedicated to youth fishing programs. Also, vouchers for the voluntary license will be available at the 900 license-issuing agents and online. A voucher acts as a gift card and does not require any personal information at the time of sale. Clubs, organizations, businesses, and individuals who are interested in promoting youth angling can purchase quantities of voluntary youth license vouchers to distribute to children. Personal information is required at the time the voucher is redeemed and a customer identification number is issued. “Based on last year’s event, we expect that lots of fish will be caught,

many memories will be made and there will be plenty of fun to go around,” said Arway. “Don’t miss out on this special opportunity.” More information about the program, including a list of the waters, is available at www.GoneFishingPa.com

New 511PA Mobile Application Puts Traveler Information in Drivers’ Hands (Harrisburg) – People traveling through Pennsylvania can now get better traffic information before and during a trip with PennDOT’s new, free 511PA mobile application. The application, available for iPhone and Android devices, provides hands-free and eyes-free travel alerts for the nearly 40,000 miles of road that PennDOT maintains, the Pennsylvania Turnpike and select New Jersey and West Virginia roadways. Users can also check the application before they travel to view traffic speeds, cameras and travel alerts. “Our mission is to provide better mobility in Pennsylvania, and that in-

cludes making sure that our customers are well informed for their travel plans,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “This application helps our customers have the most current travel information available before and during their trip.” Application users can tailor the alerts based on event type, time between alerts, their location (with a radius of up to 500 miles), and for which direction of travel the user wants to hear advisories. When activated, the hands-free and eyes-free application plays audio alerts with traffic incidents or slowdowns within the radius the user selects. In addition to providing traveler in-

formation on the go, the application helps drivers make travel decisions before they leave by linking to the 511PA website, www.511PA.com. The site provides alerts, cameras and more for PennDOT-maintained roadways as well as the Pennsylvania Turnpike. To download the application, visit the iTunes or Google Play stores and search for “511PA.” In addition to the mobile application, motorists can sign up to receive personal, customizable travel alerts, or follow the statewide or regional Twitter feeds assigned to each 511PA region. PennDOT reminds drivers to not call or look at any of 511PA’s services while driving.

Simple Ways To Protect Your Home Against Burglary (NAPSI)—Protecting your home against break-ins may be easier than you fear. Here are a few hints that can help: • Install lighting: Motion-sensing lights can be a great way to increase security without having to leave your outside lights on all night. Use them in any shadowy area where an intruder may linger. • Maintain your landscaping: Don’t let overgrown shrubs give a criminal a place to hide. Keep trees and shrubs near the house neatly trimmed and be on the lookout for footprints near windows or trampled planting beds. • Keep valuables out of sight: Put away electronics or other valuables whenever practical. Consider mounting large items such as TVs or artwork where there is no direct sightline to a window or keep drapes or blinds drawn. • Your house never goes on vacation: A vacation can make your home an easy target. Never post on social media sites that you are going away. To deter trouble, invest in some inexpensive timers, which can be set up with staggered timing on multiple lamps and in multiple rooms to mimic a realistic lighting pattern. Visit the post office or fill out a form online to have your mail held while you’re away. Talk to your neighbors to let them know you’ll be gone, and if your trip overlaps with trash day, ask if they can move your bins out for pickup and take them in afterward. • Upgrade door locks: Add dead bolts to any doors that don’t have them,

including the garage and shed. Dead bolts are significantly harder to force open than the more common spring bolts found in many doorknobs. • Fortify windows: Glass windows are one of the most vulnerable areas of any home and intruders often target windows if doors are locked and secured. Whenever you’re away or asleep, close them and install locks on any windows that don’t have them. You can also get security window film. One manufacturer, 3M, offers security films designed to hold broken glass together.

The films prevent shattered glass from flying into the house, reducing potential injury. Tests have shown that windows protected with security window film can deter intruders for as long as two minutes-giving police additional response time. Security window films also reject up to 99 percent of harmful UV rays, reducing the effects of fading on your furnishings, and block IR rays, keeping heat out of your house. For more information on security window film, visit: www.3m.com/windowfilmsecurity

Uncovering The Latest Trends Underfoot (NAPSI)—From setting the right mood to creating a strong style statement, there’s no question that the floor is the single most important visual element in a home. To help you find a way to put your floor to work for you, here’s a brief look at some of the latest trends in flooring. Hardwood Trends Hardwood continues to be the fastestgrowing segment in flooring due to its long-lasting durability and rich look. According to current home sale reports, an investment in hardwood floors pays off when it comes to the overall value of your home. Lighter colors, longer and wider planks, and enhanced finishes are just a few of the style elements trending this year. Highly detailed wood grain surfaces are also in fashion as people seek to bring more natural, unfinished looks into their home. Distressed, weathered, wire- brushed, soft-scrape, even “demolition-style” surface treatments are popular these days. Sun-bleached blondes, driftwood-inspired gray-browns and other matte finishes in white oak, walnut and maple varieties are gaining ground by making imperfection a design element. Eco-friendly reclaimed wood sourced from historic buildings, factories, truck decks, mills, farms, food crates and other materials is another great option offering loads of character and unique, organically created surface textures that also easily mask scratches and wear. Technology is also playing a large role in the category, offering machine-created finishes that are scratch, stain, moisture and humidity resistant. One new surface treatment even helps clean the air. Activated by light, titanium dioxide on the surface of the floor works like a living tree in your home. This natural purifier breaks down pollutants such as formaldehydes, which can be present throughout a home, and converts the toxins into harmless molecules. Hardwood plank sizes are also changing in width and length. Wider planks are contemporary looking and give smaller rooms the illusion of a larger space. Longer boards, sourced from older trees, are increasingly popular for their pleasing look and structural integrity. Coinciding with the durability trend, bamboo continues to grow in popularity for its diamond-hard surface and ability to perform in wet environments. As it is a reed that grows in water, bamboo is the only naturally sourced hard flooring that is moisture resistant. That makes it a great choice for kitchens and wet rooms. Carpet Trends Carpets today have come a long way from basic natural fibers such as wool and cotton. Synthetic alternatives offer some of the softest, most luxurious, easiest-tocare-for and affordable flooring surfaces in history. New enzyme treatments in carpets create a moisture barrier between the carpet and the padding underneath, extending life span and enhancing appearance. Completely eco-friendly carpets have also made an appearance. One manufacturer launched a carpet line made from

100 percent recycled plastic. The new synthetic fiber is affordable, durable, and soft to the touch. Along with ever-popular shades of beige, sales of gray carpets are surging. To add some spice and avoid monotony, some manufacturers are presenting carpets with peppered bits of color against a neutral background. The new presentations help to hide flaws while adding dimension to rooms. Patterned carpets are also gaining ground, offering floral, diamond and winding vine looks. Area Rug Trends Area rugs are all about color, pattern and texture, and this season everything is coming up soft, warm and cozy. As with the hardwood category, a growing trend in soft surfaces is nature-inspired looks such as tree bark and stratified rock. You can even get a rug with a rippled surface that looks like a pond that a stone has been thrown into. Another eye-catcher is a shimmering rug that achieves a metallic look with finely woven nylon fibers that sparkle when struck by light. You might not think sustainability when you think of area rugs, but think again. The ultimate in eco-friendly fibers—recycled paper—has made its way onto the floor in the form of a soft, cozy shag rug. For those who want to customize the look of a room, one company offers interchangeable solid and multicolored square rug panels that can be interconnected through a Velcro backing. Consumers can buy the affordably priced 16x16-inch squares at their local flooring store and assemble them on their own. This appears to be part of another emerging trend-low cost. Many are bypassing expensive heirloom pieces in place of more affordable rugs that make bold fashion statements and can be replaced in a season or two. Tile Trends From ancient Greece to current day, tile is as practical as it is glamorous. Tile trends today include aluminum, porcelain planks that you’d swear are weatherworn hardwood, and microthin ceramic tiles. Tile is the low-maintenance option among hard-surface flooring materials—and ceramic and porcelain are excellent choices when it comes to longevity and value. Low porosity makes most sealed tile resistant to moisture, stains and bacteria, and thus uniquely hygienic. Wood looks and natural stone treatments in ceramic tile are on the rise as consumers seek to bring the outdoors in. Porcelain planks made to look like hardwood floors can be placed where hardwood cannot go, including bathrooms and even pool decks. In addition, tile can be eco friendly, containing a high percentage of recycled materials. Giant tiles, spanning two feet or more across, are becoming increasingly popular as they cover more surface area with less interruption of grout lines. In addition to clean lines and an ability to add dimension to small spaces, these tiles are easier to keep clean. Some companies have presented microthin ceramic tile that can be laid over existing flooring, thereby reducing instal-

lation time and costs. Resilient Trends Luxury vinyl tile (LVT) is both affordable and easy to maintain. New technology lets LVT replicate the high-quality look of hardwood, granite, marble, slate and other materials. Color variations and even surface texture offer design elements that originated in nature. Unlike natural materials, however, LVT is very durable and quick to clean. LVT is an excellent choice for wet environments such as bathrooms and kitchens. It is one of the easiest flooring materials to install, softer underfoot than other hard surfaces and warmer than tile and stone. A chart topper when it comes to eco friendliness, cork is naturally antimicrobial, antibacterial, waterproof, a great insulator and extremely warm and comfortable to walk on. It repels dust and is even fire resistant. Plus, cork today is available in a rainbow assortment of colors, textures and new factory finishes to keep it durable. Laminate Trends Advancements in digital imaging technology let laminate—a photographic image fused beneath a protective layer—realistically mimic many materials. Today’s laminate flooring is versatile and cost effective whether you want a custom look or want to adopt the look of another type of flooring.

Caregivers Of People With Schizophrenia Need Support, Not Stigma (NAPSI)—An estimated 2.4 million Americans are living with schizophrenia. However, the condition impacts many more than those patients alone. It also impacts the people who love those patients, care for them and worry about them. It takes courage, compassion, and a commitment to stand and face this serious condition together. May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and it’s an ideal time to recognize this often overlooked caregiver population. Caregivers act as advocates, collaborate with treatment team members and often are the main support in the daily life of their loved one with schizophrenia. Results of an online survey* among 302 unpaid caregivers to adults with schizophrenia reveal that many caregivers face challenges in caring for their loved ones, yet they strive to maintain a positive outlook. “Caring for a loved one with schizophrenia has considerable challenges because of the stigma associated with the disease. Many people don’t understand schizophrenia and they may fill those gaps with fear. It’s a unique caregiving experience in that sense,” said Randye Kaye, mental health advocate, actress and author of “Ben Behind His Voices: One Family’s Journey from the Chaos of Schizophrenia to Hope.” Kaye is the primary caregiver for her son, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia about 12 years ago. Her book is a memoir of her experience as a mother and caregiver to her son, from the onset of his battle with schizophrenia along the hopeful road to managing his disease. Results from the survey suggest that caring for someone with schizophrenia can be associated with significant challenges. Of caregivers surveyed, 79 percent felt their loved one has experienced isolation and 57 percent felt they have experienced isolation as a result of their loved one’s schizophrenia. Perhaps because of the perceived stigma and social isolation, caregivers may feel they lack support from others. Seventy-nine percent of those surveyed said they wish there were more opportunities to talk to others about caring for someone with schizophrenia and more than half (57 percent) have felt nobody understands what they are going through. Despite challenges, 94 percent of caregivers surveyed said they try to maintain a positive outlook and 68 percent would likely be as involved in their loved one’s care even if someone else was willing and able to be a caregiver. Kaye knows firsthand how important the caregiver’s role is in contributing to successful outcomes for a loved one with schizophrenia.

“I know from experience the physical and emotional burdens of caring for someone with schizophrenia, but I also know how critical my involvement is to my son’s success,” said Kaye. “I’ve learned that a caregiver’s informed input can be an incredibly valuable contribution to an effective treatment team. That’s why it’s important to develop strong and trusted relationships with members of your loved one’s treatment team.” Feeling supported is key for caregivers, said Kaye. There is a notable difference between caregivers who feel satisfied by the support that’s available and those who do not, according to results of the survey. Compared to those who are dissatisfied by available support, caregivers who are satisfied are more likely to feel grateful (39 percent v. 23 percent), content (27 percent v. 11 percent) and proud (38 percent v. 24 percent) about being a caregiver for their loved one. They are also less likely to feel stressed (36 percent v. 66 percent), challenged (40 percent v. 58 percent), frustrated (25 percent v. 54 percent), overwhelmed (28 percent v. 40 percent), and sad (25 percent v. 40 percent), and they’re less likely to feel that nobody understands what they’re going through (49 percent v. 65 percent). This reinforces that action is required to help provide caregivers with the support and resources they need. “If you are caring for someone with schizophrenia, you are not alone. There are others out there who are going through what you’re going through, and there are resources that can help,” said Kaye. If you or someone you know is struggling to provide care for a loved one with schizophrenia, visit WeLiveWithSZ.com to register for resources and find the support you deserve. *The survey was conducted by Harris Poll on behalf of Otsuka America Pharmaceutical, Inc. and Lundbeck. The survey was administered online within the United States between January 20 and 27, 2014, among 302 adults who provide unpaid care for an adult with schizophrenia. Data were not weighted and are only representative of those who completed the survey. Certain percentages include net values (such as those who selected “somewhat agree” and “strongly agree” on a four-point agree/disagree scale). References: 1.
