LETTER FROM THE EDITOR the

Health Journal Southside Edition

Publisher

e may be in the midst of hurricane season here in Hampton Roads, but this month’s cover story reflects a much different type of storm. Chances are you’ve heard the phrase “silver tsunami.” The baby boom generation (those born between 1946 and 1964) has, over recent decades, affected nearly every corner of American society. Now this enormous flock is poised to overwhelm yet another major social system—and no, I am not talking about Facebook. Medicare, the government-run health insurance program that currently insures about 40 million Americans, most of them seniors, faces a perilous future. Today, those 65-and-olders make up about 12 percent of the U.S. population; in just 20 years a whopping 20 percent of Americans will be of Medicare age. By some estimates, the system will be insolvent in as soon as eight years, meaning it will dish out more in payments than it collects through taxes. My father has already crossed that threshold into the land of Medicare and Social Security benefits. My mom, on the other hand, in just a few short years will join the first ripple of boomers to turn 65. She’s expressed to me her concerns that those very two systems—to which, throughout her working life, she watched a portion of her paycheck go each month—may go broke soon after she can finally tap into them. These are just some of the issues on the table as Congress resumes this month to further debate (and hopefully, come to a decision on) health care reform. Right now, some 20 million boomers are caring for their elderly parents. As society grays, and resources dwindle, the responsibility of caring for the nation’s seniors will likely fall on the next generation. As author Joy Vann points out in “Caring for an Aging Parent,” starting on page 22, families who plan ahead—not just financially, but also by securing important documents and talking openly about difficult topics—stand to benefit greatly. In this month’s cover story you’ll find tips about securing legal documents that address end-of-life wishes, safeguarding the home so seniors who want to stay put can do so worry-free, as well as locating local resources, like your Area Agency on Aging, that can help navigate the many options available to seniors. You’ll also find tips for initiating conversation about tough topics, as so many families simply don’t want to talk about the “what ifs.” I’ve been fortunate to have had “the talk” with both of my parents. We’ve discussed their wishes, and they have written their advance directives. Luckily, they are both in good health. They’re active and independent, and chances are they won’t need my help any time soon. But they both know that when the time comes they won’t have to go it alone. So in the meantime, Mom, welcome to Facebook. It’s just another way for us to stay in touch. photo by Brian M. Freer

fter 55 years of marriage, Robert and Thelma Spotts still love spending time together. They just never thought the togetherness would extend to an operating room at Sentara CarePlex Hospital in Hampton, where both landed on the same day—for the same surgery by the same surgeon. At 3 p.m. on April 14, Thelma, 73, was rolled in to have her failing right knee replaced. About three hours later, after she had moved into a recovery room, doctors brought in their next patient—her 80-year-old husband—and replaced his left knee. As the Newport News

couple recuperated over the next weeks and months, they supported each other and, as they often do, playfully competed. “I whipped her real bad at rehab,” Robert jokes. Thelma quickly counters that her husband had more experience with the therapy regimen: he’d had his other knee replaced four years earlier. “The therapists would tell me, ‘Oh, ignore him, he’s done this before,’” she says. “They’d say, ‘You just don’t pay any attention to him.’” Robert and Thelma turned to joint replacement surgery after their respective knees deteriorated to a point that

iny ovarian tumors lurk in the Fallopian tubes for an average of four years before they grow large enough to be detected, researchers reported in a study published in July that explains why diagnosis of ovarian cancer usually comes too late to save a woman’s life. They said they were trying to find ways to improve testing for the cancer, one of the deadliest because it is so hard to detect before it has spread. “Reliable early detection would save so many more lives than many new blockbuster anticancer drugs,” Howard Hughes Medical Institute researcher Dr. Patrick Brown of Stanford

Each year, ovarian cancer kills 15,000 women in the United States alone. University in California, who led the study, said in a statement. “There is a long window of opportunity for potentially lifesaving early detection of this disease, but the tumor spreads while it is still much too small to be detected by any of the tests that have been developed or proposed to date.” Ovarian cancer kills 140,000 women every year globally and 15,000 in the United States alone. Genetic mutations are known to raise the risk, but most patients do not have a clear genetic risk, and no good screening test exists. Blood tests for a compound called CA-125 may help guide therapy but cannot tell a doctor and a patient if a seemingly healthy woman has a tumor. Brown’s team analyzed tumors discovered in women who had their Fallopian tubes and ovaries removed due to a high family and genetic risk of ovarian cancer. They found little tumors that had not been detected in many of the women— most less than three millimeters across, smaller than a small peppercorn—they reported in the online Public Library of Science journal PLoS Medicine. According to Brown, “We are miles away from detecting the most deadly ovarian tumors at this early stage, but now we have a chance of actually designing an effective test that will allow us to treat them before they become deadly.” HJ

FAMILY FOCUS

Build a Healthy Family Workstation Start the new school year off right with a family computing area that’s fit for all. Written By Sharon Miller Cindrich

I

f the family computer is crammed in a corner of your kitchen, the keyboard is precariously balanced on a TV tray or the kids are pulling up an old kitchen chair when they work in front of the monitor, you’re not alone. Thanks to the increasing popularity of the home computer, families are spending more time in a desk environment than they did 10 years ago, and many are trying to squeeze a home workstation into their living room, extra bedroom or kitchen corner. “Computers for work and recreation have grown exponentially,” says Dr. Phyllis M. King, program director of occupational therapy at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. While many families pour cash into a computer system that meets the needs of all its users, they spend little or no time creating a healthy working environment. Well over half of American households have a computer at home, and creating a working environment that meets a family’s ergonomic needs has become a common challenge. “Home office environments have gotten less attention in the past than workplace offices,” says King. “However, we are seeing an increase in time spent on home computers,” she notes, adding that even recreational computer use, like video gaming and inSince a family’s stant messaging, can cause health problems over time. members are The height of the monitor, the supcontinually growing, port of the desk chair and the source of light can all create physical problems if choosing a chair they aren’t properly tailored to the user. that can adjust in “Symptoms [such as] pain in [the] muscles of the back, neck and forearms may height, arm position be experienced from extended periods of and lumbar support improper or unsupported postures,” King says. And, she adds, “eye problems may for each user is occur due to poor or improper lighting.” important. Without investing a fortune, families can improve the ergonomics of their home office by following these simple tips: Find a family-friendly seat. For a home office space that can be customized for each family member’s unique size, King recommends starting with the seat. “A good chair goes a long way!” she says. “An adjustable chair with good lumbar support is very important in order to accommodate different family members using the same computer station.” Most office chairs are made for adults five feet tall and over. Since a family’s members are continually growing, choosing a chair that can adjust in height, arm position and lumbar support for each user is important. If your current office chair does not have these adjustable features, use pillows for supporting a child’s back and arms. Secure good footing. When sitting at the family desk, feet should be resting on the floor. If kids’ feet dangle, use a small stool, box or even a stack of books to create a foot support. Be direct. Encourage family members to sit tall in their chair, shoulders squared up to the computer monitor with their keyboard directly in front of them. Arms should be bent at the elbow at a 90-degree angle when working with a mouse or keyboard. 12

THE HEALTH JOURNAL

Make sure the computer monitor is level with the user’s field of vision. Consider purchasing a monitor that adjusts in height and angle, or give the monitor a lift with a homemade prop for height. Remember that it’s all in the wrist. “A keyboard tray can allow for adjustment of the height of the keyboard,” says King. To cushion wrists, special wrist rests that fit along the edge of a keyboard or mouse pad are available from office supply stores. Or, create a homemade version by using a potholder, washcloth or piece of foam. See the light. Work in a well-lit room, and encourage users to look away from the monitor every 15 minutes to avoid straining the eyes. “A natural source of lighting and/or indirect sources of lighting are better than overhead sources,” says King. Encourage gentle touches. Family members can get pretty intense with those keystrokes when playing, typing and instant messaging. Punching the keyboard too hard or gripping the mouse with a killer clutch can put stress on fingers and wrists. Teach kids to type lightly and maneuver the mouse gently to take the wear off muscles and tendons. Take frequent breaks. “Stress builds up in muscles if movement does not occur,” says King, who recommends regular breaks and stretching to keep muscles from tightening. For children, set a timer for 15- or 20-minute breaks, and require them to get out of their seat and walk away from the computer.

HEALTH CARE DECISIONS

Where to Seek Care Urgent Care EMERGENCY ROOM

Some injuries can be treated at your neighborhood urgent care clinic, while some require a trip to the ER—here’s how to tell the difference.

A

Written By Brandy Centolanza

stomach ache, a broken bone, an earache, chest pains, a laceration that won’t stop bleeding—what types of ailments are suitable for treatment at an urgent care facility, and when should a person go directly to an emergency room? Local urgent care clinics have gained popularity in recent years, especially among tourists and other out-of-town visitors as well as those who lack a primary care physician or find themselves in need of services when their regular doctor is unavailable. “One of the big reasons they come to see us is the convenience,” says Dr. Michael Rogowski, a former emergency room physician who co-founded MedExpress, which has locations in Williamsburg, Yorktown and Newport News. Emergency rooms often tend to have longer wait times and more stressful environments. “Cost is also an issue,” Rogowski adds. “Urgent care is a [less costly] alternative than the ER.” Most urgent care facilities are equipped to handle conditions such as minor cuts, burns, bruises, breaks, sprains, fractures and rashes, and symptoms associated with colds, allergies, sinus conditions, upset stomachs, and the flu, as well as seasonal issues such as insect bites and heat-related illnesses in the summer or frostbite in winter. “We really see everything,” says Rogowski, adding, “Some of the things we see are appropriate for us, and some are more appropriate for the emergency room.” Dr. Clarice Moussalli, a physician with Sentara Urgent Care in Williamsburg, says she sometimes sees patients who really should have gone immediately to an emergency room. “Some people either don’t know, or some people do know and are in denial [about the severity of their condition],” she says, though for the most part, “People usually know when something is serious. If they feel something is really wrong, then they should go directly to the emergency room. If they are having troubles with major parts of their body, such as the heart or the head, if they can’t walk or are having troubles forming a sentence, then that is not something for urgent care.” Health care providers in emergency rooms have more elaborate testing methods and machinery at their immediate disposal, such as computerized axial tomography (CAT-scans),   To advertise, call 757-645-4475

magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and cardiac and resuscitative equipment, enabling them to treat patients with serious medical problems quicker than at urgent care facilities. “The big difference between us and the ER is the quick accessibility they have to the specialized testing, as well as the ability to admit patients to the hospital,” says Rogowski. Physicians advise patients to head to the ER instead of urgent care if they experience symptoms for any life-threatening condition, such as: Heart Attack—symptoms can include chest pain, shortness of breath, nausea, lightheadedness and sometimes back or jaw pain Stroke—often marked by slurred speech, difficulty walking, impaired vision or numbness on one side of the body. “If [individuals] think they are having a stroke, they should come immediately to the hospital,” says Dr. Gary Kavit, medical director for trauma and emergency services at Riverside Regional Medical Center. “They need to come here as soon as possible. There is intervention, but it is a time-sensitive intervention.” Head trauma—including any situation in which a person is rendered unconscious Problems with pregnancy—may include bleeding, cramping, decreased fetal movement Doctors also suggest turning to the ER for cases of broken bones in which the bone is protruding from the skin; chronic medical problems such as, or risk factors associated with, asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol; accidental poisonings; continuous bleeding from any part of the body; or gunshot wounds. Kavit notes that a patient’s age may also determine whether an ER or urgent care facility is preferable. Infants, toddlers and senior citizens, for example, may be better served by an ER physician, but what option is best depends on the person and the condition. When in doubt, head straight to the ER. “Time is of the essence,” Moussalli says. “The quicker [patients] are treated, the greater the chance of a better outcome.” HJ

esults of new study provide more evidence that participating in volunteer activities may add years to an older person’s life. In a study of U.S. retirees, researchers found that volunteering significantly reduced the chances of dying over a four-year period. Volunteering, the investigators say, may improve health outcomes by expanding retirees’ social networks, increasing their access to resources and improving their sense of self-worth. In the study, Dr. Sei J. Lee and colleagues from the VA Medical Center and University of California, San Francisco, examined 6,360 retirees older than age 65 who enrolled in the Health and Retirement Study in 2002. As part of the study, the men and women, whose average age was 78 years, were asked: “Have you spent any time in the past 12 months doing volunteer work for a religious, educational, health-related, or other charitable organization?” Lee and colleagues found that volunteering was strongly associated with lower death rates, with 12 percent of 1,766 volunteers dying by 2006 compared to 26 percent of 4,594 non-volunteers. Even after adjusting for numerous factors that could influence the results, such as the seniors’ socioeconomic status, chronic illnesses, and functional limitations, volunteering remained strongly correlated with lower death rates.

Health Alert

Medicines Cause Most Accidental Poisonings in Kids Young children, teens at greatest risk for accidental overdose Written By Anne Harding NEW YORK (Reuters Health)

M

edication overdoses send one in every 180 U.S. twoyear-olds to the emergency department each year, researchers from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report. Such overdoses are responsible for more than twothirds of all childhood poisonings. Most of the time, these cases occur when a child finds a medicine and eats or drinks it without adult supervision, said Dr. Daniel S. Budnitz, director of the Medication Safety Program at the CDC’s Division of Healthcare Quality and Promotion and leader of the study. “Although there have been some great strides in preventing deaths from overdoses with the traditional child-resistant caps...it might be time to kind of take the next step,” Budnitz said. He stated the CDC is working with manufacturers and other agencies to come up with innovative packaging that reduces the likelihood that a child can take too much of a medication. While the number of calls to poison control centers nationwide is declining, Budnitz and his team note in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, the percentage of those calls that involve medicines rather than household products such as cleaners and pesticides jumped 10 percent from 2002 to 2006. It’s not clear why, Budnitz said in an interview, but the fact that people are simply taking more medicines these days could be a factor. To better understand how to prevent unintentional medication overdoses in children, the researchers looked at data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System for 2004 to 2005 on visits to emergency departments for unintentional poisoning in patients 18 years of age and under. Medication accounted for 68.9

percent of these visits, or an estimated 71,224 visits every year, Budnitz and his team found. Over-the-counter products were responsible for a third of the medication-related poisonings. The most common medications involved were acetaminophen (Tylenol), representing 9.3 percent of cases; cough and cold medicines, 7.3 percent; antidepressants, 6.1 percent; and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen (Advil), 5.3 percent. Four out of five visits were due to children ingesting medications on their own, while 14.3 percent involved misuse of medications—for example, a child being given too large a dose by an adult, or being dosed too frequently. The youngest children were most at risk, with kids age five and under accounting for 81.3 percent of the medication-related poisonings. As children got older their likelihood of unintentional medication overdose decreased, but rose again during adolescence, possibly because parents were allowing them to take medications on their own, Budnitz and his team note. “These are not teens who are trying to get high or kill themselves,” Budnitz noted, but who simply may not understand how to use medicines. “Really, you can only take medicines as directed. If the bottle says take two for pain, it doesn’t mean that taking eight will be even better.” Parents should know, he added, that teens may still need guidance in using medications properly. And it’s also crucial for parents to tightly close the caps of medicine bottles and put them up out of the reach of children. Putting medicines in a place that’s “convenient” for parents, he said, may also mean that it’s easy for kids to reach them, too. HJ

Make Time to Cool Down Written By Greg Tudor

What Can A Cool-Down Do for You? • Help dissipate waste prod ucts in muscles, including lactic acid • Prevent muscle soreness • Reduce the chances of dizziness or fainting after strenuous exercise • Lower adrenaline levels in the blood • Help the heart return to its normal, resting rate

Replenishing your body is just as important as your actual workout.

W

e are all guilty of it—squeezing in bursts of exercise before rushing back to our busy day. In our hurry we forget one of the most important parts of our workout: the cool-down. You may think cooling down is a waste of time or unnecessary. But in reality, it’s essential for maximizing your workout and preventing injury. During any type of strength-training activity, the body is subject to many processes. Small tears appear in muscle fibers, tendons and ligaments can incur damage and waste products can build up. A proper cool-down promotes mus-

cle recovery and helps return the body to its normal state. An effective cool-down consists of three key elements: light cardio, stretching and replenishment: • Slow the pace. Get three to five minutes of gentle exercise in an activity similar to your workout. For example, if you did an aerobics class, cool down with a light jog or walk. • Stretch out. You’ll want to stretch the same muscles that were engaged during your workout. • Re-fuel. Food and water are both important in replenishing your tired body. Drink at least 16 ounces of water post-workout, and have a protein-rich snack (aim for at least 10 grams). Even when you’re in a time crunch, don’t be tempted to skip your cool-down. The benefits of adding an extra five to 10 minutes to the end of your workout are well worth the wait. Your body will safely return to its normal state, reducing the risk of injury and preventing the next-day soreness we can all live without. HJ

These products, which all boast complex formulations of enzymes, botanicals, amino acids and natural ingredients, promise to put life back into hair that is dry, brittle, gray or thinning due to age. Though these products are typically aimed at women in their 40s and older, hair that has been exposed to years of chemical processes and environmental factors could benefit from the anti-aging properties found in the shampoos and conditioners.

Studies indicate that this year demand for anti-aging products in general should increase by 10 percent. Hair care companies haven’t wasted any time in taking advantage of this trend, as more and more age-fighting products are popping up on shelves. Even skin care companies that offer anti-aging products are crossing over into hair care.

Caring for an Aging Parent: Consider All Options, Plan Ahead Written By Joy Vann

C

aring for an aging parent is one of those universal life experiences that brings with it many joys but also challenges. Getting older (and dare we say, dying) are the “great inevitables” that most families prefer not to discuss. Those who do talk about it, though, and plan ahead for the possibility that independent living may not be an option, stand to benefit; those who don’t will likely face challenging medical and financial repercussions. You can help your parents prepare for the best future possible by tapping into the many local and national resources available.

Local agencies offer guidance to seniors and their families

Topics for discussion: >> Advance directives/living wills >> Appointing a family caregiver >> Housing preferences: home vs. senior living facilities >> Financial matters, including long-term care insurance >> Where to find important documents regarding care >> End-of-life wishes/spiritual beliefs

THE HEALTH JOURNAL

September 2009

When it became clear to Morgaine Beck of Falmouth, Mass., that her parents—octogenarians Agnes and Harley Beck—needed more help than she could provide, Beck spent five months trying to sort things out. For years the elder Becks had lived in a two-story townhouse in Williamsburg, but as medical issues mounted—Agnes needed surgery for an intestinal blockage, and Harley fractured his hand and developed bruises after falling several times—“it just became too much,” Beck recalls. She considered moving her parents into a senior living facility, but her dad, an Air Force retiree, was reluctant to give up his independence and leave a home full of happy memories. He’d always vehemently said that he “didn’t want to live in a nursing home,” reflecting a common misconception among older Americans that all senior living communities are sterile, institutional-like places where the sick are sent to die. After consulting Kathy Hoyle, a registered nurse and case manager at Peninsula Agency on Aging (PAA) in Newport News, the family was able to reach a happy medium. With Hoyle’s help, they decided on assisted living, a level of care that offers some independence while professional caregivers assist with health and nutritional needs. (See our sidebar at right for more on the levels of care.) But while her parents had a will (though an outdated one), Beck didn’t have financial or medical power of attorney, which would allow her to assist in her parents’ transition. After five months, Beck finally secured the legal documents she needed. According to Beck, discovering the resources available to her parents through PAA was nothing short of “a miracle.” The PAA is one of about 650

Levels of Care Companion Services—Non-medical personal care provided in your home by an individual or home health agency. Services may include help with light housekeeping, errands, cooking and other tasks. Area Agencies on Aging in the United States that offer assistance to seniors and their families in the form of information, care coordination, meal delivery and transportation. In Hampton Roads, help can also be found through Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia (SSSEVA), based in Norfolk. John Skirven, executive director of SSSEVA, calls such agencies “one-stop shops for services and opportunities for older people,” adding that getting the word out about senior resources is vital. “The United States has not done a good job of teaching people to prepare for old age,” asserts Skirven, “and we’ve not done a good job of building a coherent long-term health program. It’s very fragmented. [Fortunately] now there is a lot more attention [paid] to those issues.” Beck sympathizes with other adult children entrusted with the task of caring for their parents, especially those who try to navigate the system without help: “It’s sad, because there are so many resources out there— much more than anyone realizes.” Beck’s parents now live in a two-room unit at the Madison Retirement Center in Williamsburg. Through PAA, the senior Becks also learned about a veterans’ aid program that supplements their Social Security income, making it affordable to live in the assisted living community where they receive meals, medications and housekeeping/laundry service and participate in social activities. “They were very isolated before and didn’t have a support network—and now they are part of a community,” says Beck. “I say it’s a happy ending and [a new] beginning. They are happier and healthier than they have been in years.”

Right documents can aid in decision-making, planning ahead Like a lot of seniors, until medical problems made a lifestyle change more urgent, Beck’s parents hadn’t signed legal documents to allow their daughter to make key decisions regarding their care. In fact, it’s estimated that 70 percent of older Americans don’t have the paperwork in place to make their wishes known, often forcing children or other relatives to make gut-wrenching decisions in crisis mode, rather than being able to calmly make proactive plans. One of the most important documents any adult can have in place is an advance directive—a written or oral statement, made while a person is competent, that

Home Care—Provided by home health care agencies, these services can range from nursing care (provided by certified nursing assistants or home health aides) to medication management to physical therapy. Adult Day Care—Meals, medications and social activities are provided to the elderly outside of the home at a designated site. Transportation is usually provided. At local PACE centers, for example, a medical team coordinates doctor’s appointments for each individual. Independent Senior Living Communities— Often called “retirement homes,” these facilities are ideal for seniors who are in good health but would like to live in a community with people their own age with similar interests. Some communities offer dining, social activities and transportation. expresses one’s health care wishes. There are two types: the living will, which provides directions for end-of-life care, and a durable power of attorney for health care (or medical power of attorney) which designates a particular individual to make health care decisions for a person in the event he or she cannot make them for him or herself (this pertains only to medical treatment and is separate from a legal power of attorney, which covers legal and financial issues.) Asking parents about their long-term care wishes and housing preferences can be difficult, if not daunting. Experts recommend taking a low-key approach. Sue Cunningham, a certified senior advisor and aging-in-place specialist in Virginia Beach, says, “I hear from a lot of adult children who don’t want to bring these topics up because they [fear their parents will think] they just want their inheritance or money, when really all they want to do is what’s right by their parents.” She advises having the conversation before it becomes necessary, because if you wait until a crisis, you may then have to make decisions that would be contrary to their wishes. Cunningham also suggests broaching the subject of care plans with something topical, such as the recent Oprah show about the possibility of living to be 150 years old. Finding an article on the subject can open dialogue, too.

Assisted Living Facilities—Live-in facilities where seniors receive help with the tasks of daily living such as bathing, dressing and preparing meals but do not require round-the-clock care. Home care and skilled nursing services are usually provided by an outside agency. Many such facilities offer special Alzheimer’s/ Dementia wings. Nursing Homes—Offer round-the-clock convalescent care for individuals who cannot care for themselves. Medical and non-medical staff members manage medications, help with feeding and provide housekeeping services. Continuing Care Communities—May offer independent and assisted living, usually in the same campus or setting, as well as nursing care and/or hospice. An entry fee may be required. Hospice/Palliative Care—Can be provided in the individual’s home, at any senior care facility or designated hospice centers. Hospice caregivers focus on pain management and spiritual issues. This level of care is often reserved for those with a life expectancy of six months or less.

Caring for an Aging Parent Continued from page 23 (those born between 1946 and 1964) approach 65 (the first boomers will turn 65 in 2011). By 2030, nearly one in five Americans will be over age 65, straining (or some say, breaking) the U.S. health care system. Right now, the fastest growing segment of the U.S. senior population is individuals 85 years and older, the majority of whom want nothing more than to stay where they feel most at ease: in their own home. Aging in place—a phrase that defines a movement to help seniors live independent, healthy lives at home—is a worthy goal, and some seniors can achieve it.

And what about seniors who want to remain in their home but need help beyond what family members can provide? Home care, of course, is an option; but round-the-clock care isn’t in the budget of most families. One solution is to send seniors to a day program such as PACE (Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly, operated independently by Riverside Health System in Hampton and by Sentara Healthcare in Virginia Beach and soon in Portsmouth.) At PACE centers, eligible seniors receive care from an interdisciplinary team that provides primary health care, nursing, rehabilitation therapies, meals, psycho-social support and recreational activities. Transportation is provided to and from the sites, relieving family caregivers of daily drop-off and pick-up duties. Laura Gadsby, Sentara’s PACE site manager, says working families find relief in having all of those services covered—as well as medical care and coordination provided—all at one place.

Help is out there, if you know where to look Kathy Sexton of Norfolk wonders why no one on the extensive medical teams of her parents, Thelma and Fred Sexton, told her about the resources and care options available to local seniors during her seven years as a caregiver. She assumes it’s because she attended the hundreds of medical appointments, always asking questions. And she was always the one to drive them home from the hospital. Looking back, Sexton surmises that because so many seniors don’t have family members to advocate for their care, the doctors who witnessed her attentiveness simply “didn’t worry about who would care for [my parents].” But things got hairy when Thelma’s diabetes and congestive heart failure progressed. Sexton hired a certified nursing assistant to care for her parents during the day but found the care “merely adequate.” Sexton began taking on more and more caregiving responsibilities, including attending to their needs at night. “It was hard being up every night for eight to 10 hours, changing diapers and giving medications and then going to work in the morning,” she says. As Sexton’s mother’s health failed, so did her father’s. Bills mounted, and after a while, Sexton found herself paying for most of them out of pocket. “I began to feel like an ATM machine,” she remembers. “Every time I turned around there was a new bill for something I hadn’t anticipated, like $800 for a mechanical chair or $10 an hour for a neighbor to sit with Dad.” Managing her parents’ medical needs and maintaining their household eventually took its toll on Sexton, who, even two years after her mother’s death and seven months after her father’s passing, says she can “still hear my parents calling my name” in the middle of the night. “My parents relied on me, the single daughter without children,” she says. “I wish I’d known about the resources that are out there.” HJ

HEALTH CARE DECISIONS

7 Myths About Long-Term Care Written By David C. Kikoen

The topic of long-term care has saturated the news lately—from stories of people needing long-term care services to how the government is responding. But coverage of the issue has included a lot of conflicting, and even mistaken, information. Misconceptions may have prevented you from considering long-term care coverage, but it is a critical component of any comprehensive retirement plan. Read on for straight talk about long-term care. Myth #1:

“I’ll never need long-term care.” Most people can’t imagine themselves needing long-term care services, but the United States Department of Health and Human Services indicates that at age 65 we face at least a 40-percent lifetime risk of entering a nursing home. Living a long life may further increase your risk of needing long-term care. Isn’t it better to insure against what that risk may do to your family and your financial plans? Myth #2:

“Long-term care is only for the elderly.” Actually, a surprising percentage of long-term care services are provided to younger people. The U.S. Government Accountability Office estimates that 40 percent of the 13 million people receiving long-term care services are between the ages of 18 and 64. The unexpected need for long-term care could arise at any age for any number of reasons, including illness or an accident. Myth #3:

“I’ll pay for my own long-term care.” In 2008, U.S. nursing home costs averaged over $76,400 a year per individual, but in some regions this figure was nearly doubled. How long could you pay for these expenses without jeopardizing your financial plan or exhausting your savings? It may make good sense to transfer this financial risk just like you do with your homeowner’s insurance or auto insurance. Even if you can afford to pay for long-term care services out of pocket, why would you want to when you can transfer the cost to an insurer for premiums that may total a fraction of the cost of care? Myth #4:

“Medicare will cover my long-term care expenses.” Medicare does pay for nursing home care, but only for a maximum of 100 days and only if the three-day qualifying hospital stay requirement has been met. In addition, Medicare will only pay as long as you are showing progress towards recovery. Once your condition becomes stable—regardless of whether you’re fully well—Medicare rules indicate that benefits will stop. Also, Medicare does not pay for individuals to attend an adult day care program or for the room and board expenses at an assisted living facility. Myth #5:

“Medicaid will cover my long-term care expenses.” Medicaid was developed partially to cover long-term care costs for Americans of any age who need help paying for those services. Medicaid is currently the largest payer of long-term care costs in the U.S., primarily for care in nursing homes. However, Medicaid helps people with limited or minimal income and assets, and in order to qualify for benefits, you have to demonstrate a financial need for help. Qualifying means spending nearly all of your own money on your care before the government will step in to help. 26

THE HEALTH JOURNAL

Myth #6:

“My family will take care of me.” The financial, physical and emotional stress that full-time caregiving may place on families can be overwhelming. Many families have struggled to provide care for parents or siblings only to eventually realize that the care required is more than they can provide. The truth is, sometimes the best way for a family to take care of a loved one needing long-term care is to make sure that a person has access to professional care. With the advances in home care services, many people needing long-term care are actually able to stay at home, with or near their families, and still get the professional care they need. Myth #7:

“Long-term care insurance covers only nursing homes.” Nearly everyone who needs long-term care wants to stay at home. Long-term care insurance can offer valuable benefits that may keep you at home for as long as possible. Long-term care insurance can also help cover the cost of care in other locations, such as adult day care centers, assisted living facilities and hospice care. HJ

lzheimer’s patients who have a close relationship with their caregivers show a slower decline in their mental and physical function over time, new research hints. In fact, the effect of having a close relationship with one’s caregiver approached the impact of taking medications that can slow the progression of the disease, Dr. Maria Norton of Utah State University in Salt Lake City and her colleagues found. The researchers have been following more than 5,000 people since 1994 to investigate risk factors for dementia in the Cache County Memory Study. All study participants were 65 or older at the study’s outset. Norton and her team zeroed in on a subset of 167 people who had developed dementia and followed them for about 20 months, on average. All subjects were being cared for by a spouse or an adult child. They determined caregiver-patient closeness by presenting the caregivers with a series of statements about their relationship with the patient.

According to one expert, caregivers who engage their charge in socially and cognitively stimulating activities may help slow the rate of cognitive decline typically seen with Alzheimer’s. Overall, Norton and her colleagues found, the patients with spouse caregivers showed slower physical and mental decline than those being cared for by adult children. And the closer the relationship was, the slower the decline. People may be more willing to care for a husband or wife than for a parent, Norton noted, given that they’ve already agreed to stick by them in sickness and in health. “They’ve already kind of made that lifelong commitment,” she said. Caregivers who feel closer to their charge may also be more likely to spend time engaging with that person and making him or her feel “important and loved,” rather than parking the person in front of the TV, Norton pointed out. Evidence is mounting that people’s brains stay healthier if they are more socially and cognitively active, Norton noted. The more loving caregivers “might possibly be engaging the person with Alzheimer’s disease in socially and cognitively stimulating activities that may in turn keep the brain active and slow the rate of cognitive decline,” she said. The current findings also suggest, she added, that taking steps to strengthen the relationships between Alzheimer’s patients and their caregivers could be helpful. HJ

Natural Solutions For Managing Headache and Stress Written By Dr. Daniel A. Shaye

T

here are few human ailments that can ruin your day like a headache and stress. Whether you suffer constant, low-level worries about the economy, relationships or life’s other challenges—or more direct and throbbing pain in the head that leaves you wanting to just curl up in a ball—you probably are tempted to do just about anything to feel better. Fortunately, there are some steps you can take to safely and effectively manage and limit both headaches and stress.

Connect with your body. When we experience stress, we tend to tighten certain areas. One way to self-manage stress and pain is to normalize your breathing. First, take a moment to become aware of your body. Where’s the tension? Is it in your face? Your scalp? The base of your head? Your shoulders? Your chest or abdomen? Consciously connect to those areas of your body, and then gently let the stress go. Visualize breathing out the stress and tension, breathing in nurturing life and oxygen. Does this sound too “New-Agey” for your tastes? If it works, what have you to lose? Rethink the pills. One of the major problems with pills for headaches is that they carry a risk of “medication-induced” or “rebound” headaches. It’s OK to take a Tylenol or aspirin for the occasional head-pounding migraine, and every year or three I have a crushing headache that responds almost miraculously to a single half-aspirin; yet long-term use of these pills not only can increase headache incidence and severity, but also

damage the liver, kidney and gastrointestinal tract. Few people find their stress levels plummet at the news that they need dialysis. Watch what you eat. Food has a very real effect on our moods, and our pain. If you doubt this, then you’ve never seen a child after a sugar binge. In addition to affecting mood, some plants and other foods are natural anti-inflammatory agents (in fact, Hippocrates, father of modern medicine, knew aspirin as willow tree bark). It’s also known that certain foods can “trigger” headaches. Caffeine (whether from a beverage or chocolate), tyramines (common in cheeses) and alcohol (due to both sulfites in wine and alcohol’s dehydrating effects) are common headache triggers. Pay attention to what causes your headaches. Question whether it’s truly a good idea to seek “death” via a confection, despite the catchy name. Seek the cause. If your marital situation or job is causing you tremendous stress, a few breathing exercises and some ginger won’t solve your problems. Sure, you can use some of the methods in this article to cope; but I’d suggest you either change your perspective on the world, or change the world around you. Consider career or relationship counseling, prayer, some soul-searching, or talk therapy with a trained counselor. Exercise. Though some headaches are made worse by exercise, for most aches and pains and stress, exercise is the “magic pill.” Exercise

So take a walk. Or shoot some hoops. Seek a diagnosis. Perhaps I should have listed this first: Some headaches are of serious, ominous cause. Infections, tumors and aneurysms do bring about some headaches, but fortunately these are rarely the cause. There are many “benign” causes of headache that are nevertheless so painful that they cause my patients to ask me to simply remove their heads. If your doctor has a suspicion of an ominous (secondary) headache cause, he or she will order tests to rule these causes in, or out. Laugh.

Psychosocial care is comprised to two primary areas – psychological (emotional) and social (resources, support groups). VOA’s Psychosocial Oncology programs focus on the patient before, during and after treatment. These services are offered by a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW), who specializes in Oncology Social Work. They are an extension of our compassionate treatment protocols, and are intended to provide coping skills, strengthen stress-management skills, and, ultimately, provide links to community resources to support treatment, survivorship and bereavement needs. Addressing such components provides patients the opportunity to more effectively manage their illness and experience a better quality of life.

Chiropractic spinal manipulation has fared well in peer-reviewed studies as a form of headache management and treatment. In fact, some studies have shown its effects to be superior to common medications, and with longer-lasting results and fewer side effects. Don’t be surprised if you notice your M.D. waiting in your chiropractor’s reception area. Try acupuncture. This ancient system of healing has the drawback of some language that sounds very, very foreign to our Western ears. What’s this “Chi?” Who says my “Yin” is deficient? Yet despite acupuncture’s roots in a foreign culture, it has caught on in the Western world for one simple reason: Its benefits are real. Modern acupuncture uses sterile devices, and it’s only performed by licensed practitioners. Look for letters like FIAMA, DIAMA, or LAc after the provider’s name. Though my patients 30

THE HEALTH JOURNAL

have found acupuncture to be a very powerful method of pain control, many of them have also discovered its calming powers. It appears that certain forms of acupuncture tap into the parasympathetic (calming) portion of the nervous system, modifying the body along the lines of the famous music that soothes the savage beast. I’ve even had patients come to me after a serious life stress (death of a loved one, for example) for acupuncture’s powerful calming effects. Though I don’t hold acupuncture out as a cureall or substitute for psychological interventions, I can’t dispute my patients’ experiences with its profound effects on mood. Perhaps one day Western medicine will have a better grip on the whys and hows of these effects; but then again, are you completely sure why hitting CTRL-ALTDEL on your computer allows you to shut down a dysfunctional program?

is crucial to mental health and to stress management. In fact, a lack of such connections has been shown to correlate to physical illness and earlier death. Join a book or garden club. Get involved in your church or synagogue or mosque. Cultivate your friendships—and not just when you think you need them. And, if you can, just phone Mom, Dad, Uncle Fred or a sibling now and again.

SECOND OPINION

Not Children, But Not Yet Adults:

Special Concerns of Teen Athletes Written By Dr. Joel Brenner

T

he dividing line between childhood and adulthood can be foggy during adolescence. Teens who look and feel “grown-up” often feel out of place in a pediatric waiting room filled with children playing with wooden puzzles and coloring books. But adolescents, especially those who are athletes, face heightened health risks unique to their age. Because they are still growing, teens who are active in sports risk injuring their bones, ligaments and tendons—injuries best treated by pediatric sports medicine specialists. The following are some conditions that occur at a higher rate among adolescents than children and are seen more often in gifted athletes who spend especially long spells on the playing field.

Any athlete whose sport requires rapid, repeated overhead arm movement should consult a specialist at the first sign of tenderness.

“Little League” Shoulder and Elbow Many a pitching career has been derailed by injuries that result from throwing too many balls without using the proper mechanics. These injuries are especially common when a talented pitcher spends too much time on the mound. Pitchers who specialize in curve balls and sliders are at greatest risk. Little league shoulder—normally defined as a strain in the rotator cuff (a network of muscles and tendons that connects the upper arm to the shoulder joint)—can also cause a tear in the labrum (a ring of cartilage in the shoulder joint) as well as damage to the growth plate (a piece of cartilage found at the ends of long bones during the developmental years). As the athlete’s shoulder begins to hurt, his or her athletic performance will decline and he or she may feel a need to push harder, making the injury worse. Little league elbow is also caused by overuse and poor mechanics, placing enormous stress on the elbow joint and forearm. It’s an injury that can cause chronic, debilitating pain. Any pitcher, quarterback or other athlete whose sport requires rapid, repeated overhead arm movement (this includes swimmers) should consult a

specialist in adolescent sports medicine at the first sign of tenderness. Among other things, the sports medicine specialist can help correct mechanical errors to reduce stress on the elbow and shoulder joints. An adolescent sports medicine physician can also design a plan to help the athlete build up certain muscles to support the affected joint and prevent future injuries.

Athlete’s Knee While any adolescent athlete can suffer a knee injury, female athletes face special risk as their hips widen during adolescence, causing skeletal imbalance that can lead to a catastrophic tear in the ligaments that hold the knee joints together. Again, these injuries are more common among the most talented athletes who may be asked to spend more time on the field or court. In far too many cases, athletes can rupture or snap the anterior cruciate ligament or ACL. The ACL crisscrosses inside the knee and surgery to repair it can

sideline an athlete for months. After surgery, there is no guarantee that an athlete with such an injury will fully return to his or her previous level of activity. Teen athletes, especially females, should consult a sports medicine specialist to learn exercises that can help increase the stability in the knee joints to prevent ACL tears or other knee injuries. At Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters, for example, sports physical therapists regularly offer classes that may reduce the risk of ACL injuries in female athletes by as much as 80 percent by teaching strengthening, stretching and balance techniques as well as core stabilization exercises. The classes also provide guidance on specific moves used in various sports, including proper jumping and landing.

Spondylolysis Spondylolysis, or stress fracture of the spine, is the most frequent injury among teen athletes who suffer from lower back pain. While the condition

can be treated without surgery, if ignored it can grow worse with each growth spurt. This condition rarely occurs in adults. As a general rule, young athletes should consult a physician—preferably one certified in both sports medicine and pediatrics or adolescent medicine—at the earliest sign of muscle tenderness. Treating injuries early can allow children and teens to further develop their sports abilities and enjoy long, healthy and pain-free athletic careers.

PROFILE

Improving Dentistry Here And Around the World Interview By Brenda H. Welch Photography By Brian M. Freer

W

hen Dr. John Cranham worked summers as a sailing instructor at a Michigan yacht club during his late teens, he considered it a fun way to earn money doing something he loved. Little did he know that the job would power his own sails, propelling him toward a career in dentistry. Cranham remembers meeting many interesting people during those summers at the yacht club, but it was the dentists and their families who stood out above the rest. “A lot of the families that I really liked were the ones where the dad was a dentist,” says Cranham. “They seemed to have such a nice life. They were balanced—they really enjoyed what they did professionally, but they also had time to do the fun stuff with their families.” Through his practice in the Western Branch area of Chesapeake, Cranham, now 48, has spent the past two decades bringing healthier and happier smiles to the faces of thousands of Hampton Roads residents. His expertise lies in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and he is an internationally recognized speaker on the aesthetic principles of “smile design” and many other topics in his specialty. He founded Cranham Dental Seminars, which provides lectures, mobile programs and intensive hands-on experiences to dentists around the world. In 2008, Cranham Dental Seminars merged with The Dawson Academy, a world-famous continuing education facility for dentists that is based in St. Petersburg, Fla. As The Dawson Academy’s acting clinical director, Cranham is involved with many of the courses and provides continuing education to dental professionals across the globe. His new office location, which opens Sept. 14 in the Greenbrier area of Chesapeake, will be both a dental practice and a teaching facility, allowing local dentists to train in Chesapeake as opposed to traveling to Florida. A third training site has been established in England, and Cranham estimates that 2,200 dentists are trained each year through the program. Cranham spends approximately two-thirds of his time in private practice and the other third as an educator. He believes this balance keeps him on the leading edge of both disciplines. The Health Journal recently spoke with Cranham about his role as an educator, his greatest source of inspiration and the everevolving field of dentistry.

John Cranham, DDS

HJ: Has life as a dentist turned out as you imagined it would? JC: Absolutely. My life has been unbelievable in that it is what I wanted to create for my family. Despite some of the traveling I’ve had to do teaching-wise—which is also why I’m excited to be able to teach the courses at home at our new office location—I’ve managed to be a very present dad and husband. I also wanted to be able to offer [my family] a nice lifestyle, be able to provide for them and have the time to be with the people I care about. From that standpoint, dentistry has given me what I hoped for and more. HJ: What has been the biggest surprise in your career? JC: It is how rapidly the technology is advancing. There really isn’t a single procedure I learned in dental school that I am doing the same way. I don’t know if 20 years ago I would have thought that would have been a good thing, but I think it is also one of the things I enjoy about dentistry—

“There really isn’t a single procedure I learned in dental school that I am doing the same way now.” Age: 48 Hometown: Brantford, Ontario, Canada    Family: Wife, Kim; son, Cornell; two daughters, Kaitlyn and Kristen Education: Honors graduate of the Medical College of Virginia (now Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center) in Richmond     Professional affiliations: American Dental Association, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics, American Equilibrium Society

PROFILE it is impossible to get bored. [Dentistry] is changing so rapidly in terms of the materials and technologies we have at our fingertips. As an educator as well as a dentist, I’m forced to keep up, and I like that part of it. HJ: Who do you look to for inspiration? JC: My adopted son, Cornell. He was one of my wife’s patients when she was a pediatric occupational therapist at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters. He was a one-pound, nineounce “premie” who was abandoned over there [by his birth mother who was addicted to crack cocaine]. He was on a ventilator for six months and spent almost one-and-a-half years of his life at the hospital. He didn’t walk until he was four and had multiple surgeries to reconstruct his trachea. He’s a fighter. We brought him home initially as a foster child and ended up adopting him. He’s probably had the most impact on me out of everybody. He’s had more issues to deal with in his short life than most of us will have in all of our life, but he has a big smile on his face and just goes at it every day and never complains. He’s touched a lot of hearts. HJ: What is the best dental advice you can offer? JC: Make sure that you catch problems when they are small by seeing your dentist regularly. Dental problems never get better over time.

Questionable Mammogram? Breast-Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) is the right next step.

This molecular breast imaging technique can reveal cancerous lesions, even in women with difficult-to-read breasts. BSGI now at two locations on the Peninsula: Riverside Diagnostic and Breast Imaging Center at Oyster Point, 757-595-6363 and the Dorothy G. Hoefer Comprehensive Breast Center at Sentara Port Warwick, 757-594-1899.

See What Matters

HJ: What is your favorite motto? JC: I remember hearing that Tiger Woods’ father raised him with the motto, “Share and care.” That would be my favorite. HJ
