Pension issues in the foreground

Former SPD candidate for chancellor martin schulz visited the awo senior center in knetzgau on tuesday. At the invitation of state parliament candidate rene van eckert, many seniors and foreign guests took part in a breakfast with an exchange of views.

Facility manager heike schollermann introduced the house with its 82 residents in five residential groups to the visitors, among them sabine dittmar, member of the bundestag, and bernhard rub, member of the district council. The seniors are therefore fully integrated into everyday life and can lead a very individual life. There is also the "neighborhood management" project, whose director annika kuhbandner is doing everything she can to ensure that the senior center and the village grow together. In this way, the residents of the home can maintain their old contacts or make new ones, at the regular events that take place at the senior center.

Martin schulz praised the forward-looking concept of the work welfare association. In a discussion round, he answered the questions of the seniors, which mainly concerned the topics of pensions and long-term care insurance. Also into the golden book of the municipality the politician signed itself. Mayor stefan paulus was proud to be able to bury schulz with his extraordinary european commitment and thanked him for valuing the work of the nursing professions.

Where have all the patients gone??

Where have all the patients gone??

The dental surgeries are in a frenzy as the year draws to a close. Before the flurry of flashbulbs at the family party on christmas, another tooth cleaning was in order, the filling in the molar should be checked for its firmness before it meets the filling of the christmas goose. And if you don’t have a stamp in your bonus booklet, you can quickly make an appointment for the checkup. This year, however, everything is a bit different for dentists as well. Calm.

Dr. Dorothea ebenhoh, spokeswoman for the dentists in the district of kitzingen, sounds the alarm cautiously. She runs a practice in mainstockheim with her sister dr. Julia ebenhoh. The two dentists agree on one thing: times have become difficult to calculate. "We lack planning reliability," explains julia ebenhoh, referring to two things: on the one hand, patients are unsettled, canceling appointments at short notice more often than usual or not coming at all. On the other hand, also for financial reasons, they wanted to wait with a tooth replacement and not have the treatment carried out under the current circumstances. "That makes it even more difficult for us to plan."Their employees are on short time, so that financial losses can be compensated for. Dentists could not expect state aid, however, female dr. Ebenhoh.

Costs are rising

At the same time, the cost of medical hygiene products has skyrocketed, and some of them are not always available. Just a year ago, medical mouth and nose protection was available for three euros per 50 pieces; today, the same number costs 20 euros. An even more massive price increase, because the consumption is much higher than for the masks, is to be complained about for the gloves. The package now costs twelve euros instead of 3.50 euros – although the demand among the general population may have risen to a much lesser extent than for the masks. And availability is still not always guaranteed. "We always have to look at what’s on the market at the moment," says julia ebenhoh. It suspects that the material has been misused as a speculative object and would like to see more support from the company’s representatives in this regard. Rough practices with many employees could end up in financial difficulties if the situation persists. And also the laboratories would lack sometime of orders.
