For Immediate Release
Martha Head Wins Poster Competition
NEWTON-Martha Head, Healthcenter Secretary at Lake Prince Woods has been selected as the Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) poster contest winner by the parent organization, United Church Homes and Services (UCHS). Head’s poster will be reproduced and shared among nearly 700 UCHS employees and distributed to ten UCHS communities located in North Carolina and Virginia.
Head has been employed at Lake Prince Woods since 2010. Her award winning poster carries the theme of a movie theater marquee with QAPI showings -24/7, 365 days a year.
UCHS sponsored an employee contest to raise awareness for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) in their healthcare centers. QAPI is the merger of two complementary approaches to quality management, Quality Assurance (QA) and Performance Improvement (PI). Both involve seeking and using information, but they differ in key ways. Quality assurance is a process of meeting quality standards and assuring that care reaches an acceptable level; performance improvement is a pro-active and continuous study of processes with the intent to decrease the likelihood of problems by identifying areas of opportunity and testing new approaches. A solid sustained QAPI program creates a fulfillment for caregivers and offers better care and better quality of life for residents.
“An effective Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) Program is critical to our goals to improve care,” shared Steve Paterson, Chief Quality andCompliance Officer. “This contest provided a way for employee involvement and to create awareness.”
United Church Homes & Services, a not-for-profit corporation located in Newton, NC, operates three continuing care retirement communities, a PACE (Program for All-inclusive Care for the Elderly), and six affordable senior housing communities across North Carolina and Virginia.

BRANDON, FL- Hawthorne Village of Brandon received two prestigious awards from LTC Support Services at the company’s annual awards ceremony in Galesburg, Illinois earlier this month. LTC Support Services contracts with 21 retirement communities in 4 states and hosts their annual event to recognize outstanding locations and programs.
Brandon’s facility received an award for excellence in skilled quality care, which recognizes the campus who met the organization’s standards the best.
“Hawthorne is committed to an exceptionally high standard and continues to pursue new ways to integrate patient services with the best medical care to offer a truly unique experience to our residents and their families,” said Vernon Zeger, Executive Director of Hawthorne Village of Brandon. “It is through partnerships with our doctors, Brandon Regional Hospital and other health care facilities in our community that we are able to achieve such great excellence in skilled quality care.”
The Bounce Back program, which also received an award, helps patients to “rehab, recover and return home.” Treating those who were hospitalized for major illness or sudden trauma, Bounce Back combines skilled nursing care and continued therapies to alleviate pain, restore function and improve mobility. Last year through the Bounce Back program, Hawthorne successfully returned over 470 residents home after completion of physical therapy and rehabilitative services.
“I am excited that our Bounce Back program leads the nation in helping patients achieve the restored health that allows them to remain independent,” said Zeger. “Our interdisciplinary team of physical, speech and occupational therapists, case managers, nurses and doctors create individualized plans with realistic goals for each resident; these plans guide the recovery and rehabilitative process to ensure the greatest success.”
In addition to the two awards the Brandon campus received, the Regional Director of Operations, Deborah Franklin, was awarded The Directors Award, which recognizes the director who shows outstanding and ongoing service and contributions to the success of their locations.

Urinary incontinence is one of those things many people aren’t comfortable talking about. The hush-hush issue is rarely discussed publicly despite the estimated 30 million Americans currently living with some level of urinary incontinence. Urinary Incontinence affects large demographic including active seniors, buy women who have birthed multiple children and those with health conditions such as prostate cancer, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, strokes, epilepsy or bladder, urinary tract or pelvic cancers.
Despite its prevalence, the topic is black listed from most conversations, especially those of the more conservative senior citizen population, who also happen to be the group most inflicted with the condition. As a result, many people don’t know about all the solutions available to them.
Worse yet, without knowing the facts, for years many have turned to adult diapers thinking it’s their only option. Since the average wearer uses approximately 1,100 to 1,500 adult diapers each year, multiplied by millions of wearers across the country, billions of adult diapers are added to our trash heaps every year. As such, these disposable diapers are now the third largest consumer item in United States landfills, making up 17.5 million tons of garbage and 7 percent of all of the nation’s landfill waste. This number is staggering, especially when compared to infant diapers, which make up only 2 percent of landfills.
The issue is complicated further for many as adult diapers are sometimes labeled biodegradable. Yet, not even biodegradable diapers break down in a landfill according to the California Integrated Waste Management Board. It can actually take up to 500 years for a disposable diaper to decompose. Not only that, research from Natural-Environment.com showed that more than 82,000 tons of plastic and 250,000 trees are used to make disposable diapers each year.
It can’t be disputed: adult diapers are bad for the environment.
So in spite of attempts to keep the topic under wraps, now is the time to learn about eco-friendly alternatives like Wearever underwear. The option unknown by so many is simple: real underwear made especially for those with light, moderate or heavy urinary incontinence.
Wearever’s reusable incontinence underwear features an innovative sewn-in pad that functions as well as any adult diaper. Its Unique-driTM absorbent technology works in three layers: the top layer lets liquid in; the middle layer moves liquid out to the edges of the fabric, wicking it away so it doesn’t pool and, therefore, resists bacteria growth and odor; and the urethane bottom layer prevents leak through so that the moisture is contained within the undergarment.
Since they are easy-care machine washable and last as long as a traditional pair of underwear, a week’s worth of Wearever incontinence undergarments contribute zero waste over the course of a year. Compared to adult diapers, that’s billions saved from the landfill.
The Wearever line also eliminates the discomfort and loss of dignity that can come with adult diapers. The men’s briefs and women’s panties look and feel just like traditional underwear. There are even stylish solutions like women’s lace panties or shapewear that helps smooth a woman’s midsection. Ever better: Wearever products are also less expensive, saving the average user nearly $500 a year compared to adult diapers.
Wearever products are better for your wallet, better for the earth and better for your wardrobe. You don’t even need to think about the consistent noise of a diaper crinkling, the rough feel on skin, or the frequent trips to the store for disposable diapers anymore. With Wearever, incontinence doesn’t change your active lifestyle, and you don’t add to landfill waste.
About the author:
Mandy Harrell is the brand manager for Wearever. Wearever, a Durham-based apparel company, offers comfortable, quality, affordable and stylish apparel solutions for everyday health and wellness concerns.
