Comments Off on The Must-Haves of a Great Retirement Home

Great Retirement HomeTime flies so fast that before you realize it, you are well into your sunset years. You may not feel weak, but living alone can get very lonely and that is not healthy for anyone. If living with the family is no longer an option, a retirement home is a good choice.

Peace and snow

Salt Lake City might be a capital city, but its charm and feel are that of a small developing town. Apart from it being the Mormon Church headquarters, it is the home of snow-capped mountains that are great for skiing and beautiful to look at.

The people are warm and friendly, and the idea of families is widely accepted. According to Legacy Retirement, this means that you can still get to enjoy the family setup or at least the feeling of having a family even as you go through rehabilitation.

Let nature work the magic

The outdoors is a few minutes away, and you can breathe in the crisp, fresh air throughout. A short hike during summer, a walk in the park in spring or even a snowball fight in winter are all possibilities, so there is never a lack of activities. Music and art lovers can enjoy a little Jazz on an evening out and cap it with a walk in the quiet town.

It is said that nature has a way of making things better, and this is where you can expect to experience this. Retirement homes are all about connecting and experiencing life anew, and Salt Lake City offers that. Rehabilitation in Salt Lake City is like going to see a doctor that has a good reputation and track record.

You will smell the “lake stink: a few times a year, but isn’t that how life goes? Everyone has a beautiful experience even when the stinky and divine combine.

Comments Off on Sugar Tax: What’s In It for the Brits?

Sugar TaxThe Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, recently unveiled a ‘sugar tax’ in an attempt to relieve the growing rates of dental caries in Britain’s younger population. Will it make even an iota of difference or will it be just an added burden for consumers whose diet includes sugary beverages, such as fizzy drinks and fruit juices?

A recent government survey revealed that a large percentage of children aged 5-8 years show visible signs of tooth decay. Many teenagers and adults have lost one or more teeth due to poor oral hygiene and increased consumption of sugary drinks. Even Enhancedental agrees that the number of Garforth patients visiting a practice for dental implants could be reduced if children will learn how to take care of their teeth at a young age.

The Government, along with different dental organisations in the UK, keep launching programmes geared towards prevention of the growing problem in children’s oral health. First Smiles, an initiative of The British Society of Dental Hygiene and Therapy (BSDHT) members, is a good example.

George Osborne saw the potential benefits of imposing tax on sugary drinks. He believes this might help reduce the number of children with dental caries. People have varying opinions regarding this matter. When thinking whether sugar tax is beneficial or not, they ask themselves the same question: What’s in it for me?

For the Manufacturers

In the next two years, manufacturers of sugary drinks will pay sugar tax based on the volume of beverages they produce or import. This could mean a huge increase in operational expenses.

For the Government

Mr Osborne said the sugar tax could raise £520 million per year and the revenue will fund different sports programmes in schools.

For the Consumers

Whilst many people support the idea of imposing tax on sugary drinks, consumers show signs of dismay and disapproval. This is mainly because the sugar tax will trigger product price increases.

Some people say the sugar tax would benefit the entire British population in the long run, whilst others remain sceptical. For now, all we can do is focus on the bright side and encourage our children to reduce their consumption of or avoid sugary drinks. After all, this is good for their teeth and their overall health as well.
