Valentine’s Day Messages

Send a Special Valentine’s Day Message to a Resident at The GRAND of Dublin

February and Valentine’s Day are about love, whether it be family, romantic, or platonic. As Valentine’s Day approaches, The GRAND would like to make it easy for you to send our residents a special message to let them know someone is thinking about them on this holiday of love.

For seniors who may feel isolated and lonely, it can be a difficult day. While many people think of the elderly at Thanksgiving and Christmas, Valentine’s Day might be overlooked as an opportunity to make a person’s day feel special. We would like to invite you to send a Valentine’s Day Message to your loved one or to our residents who may no longer have family.

Send a message to one of our residents letting them know someone is thinking about them by filling out the form below. If you do not a have a specific resident you want to reach, simply leave the Resident Name field blank.

The Valentine’s Day Message form is now closed. Thank you to everyone who sent messages to our residents.

Was this month cold? If so, it means that the following winter will be harsh and dry.

PPIs: Something To Think About

Andrea M. Hartley CPhT

The GRAND of Dublin

PPIs: Something To Think About

Do you have one of these PPIs in your medicine cabinet?

  • Prilosec (omeprazole), available as an OTC and prescription
  • Nexium (esomeprazole), available as an OTC and prescription
  • Prevacid (lansoprazole), available as an OTC and prescription
  • Zegerid (omeprazole & sodium bicarbonate), OTC only
  • Protonix (pantoprazole), prescription only
  • Aciphex (rabeprazole), prescription only
  • Dexilant (dexlansoprazole), prescription only

20-30% of Americans use a PPI (proton Pump Inhibitor) to manage symptoms of GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), acid reflux, frequent heartburn and ulcer symptoms, and several other indications.  These medications have been a mainstay in treatment of stomach acid-related disorders since their introduction in 1989.  In layman’s terms, they work by binding to the proton pumps in the cells of our gastric glands and causing them to reduce acid secretion.

Their safety and efficacy have made PPIs one of the most prescribed medications.  The first PPI was approved for over-the-counter sales in 2003, allowing the convenience of self-treatment.  However, the approval for OTC sales has also contributed to the overuse & misuse of PPIs.

Many people who don’t necessarily need PPIs are using them and this can lead to problems due to a higher risk of bone fracture and higher risk of obtaining certain bacterial infections, among other things.

If you use a PPI, consider talking to your doctor about it at your next appointment. Some of the questions that patients need to ask their physicians are:  Should I be taking this?  Would a lower dose be effective? Is there an alternative to this medication?  Do the risks outweigh the benefits in my situation? Find out if another medication, such as an antacid (Tums, Mylanta, Maalox etc.) or H2 blocker (Tagamet, Pepcid, Zantac, Axid) might be better for you to use.  Or there may be some lifestyle changes you could try to reduce your symptoms.

If you use a PPI, it’s definitely something to think about.
