From the Editor The night before this issue went to press my neighborhood had a power outage that lasted about an hour. I was working on the issue and had, fortunately, saved my work just before went the electricity went out. I also do regular backups of my work to protect against this type of problem. My point is that planning and looking ahead is an important part of our lives. To that end we have two articles that help in this area. We have an article on creating a smart end of life plan. Although a difficult subject, it is nonetheless important that we have our own plans and those of our family, particularly our older members. If you are reaching retirement age (65) next year you should consult our list of offices where you can enroll for Medicare Part D. Our featured article this month is “Day Care for Adults”. In it we explain the services provided by adult day care services along with a grid of the facilities in the Lehigh Valley. In November we go to the polls to vote for president. We encourage you to exercise this most Art important civic right. See you next month.

I never wanted to believe that my Dad was stealing from his job as a road worker. But when I got home, all the signs were there. What do you call a Frenchman wearing sandals? Philippe Philoppe. Q: What did the Buddhist monk say to the hot dog vendor? A: “Make me one with everything.” Why does a chicken coop always have 2 doors? Because if it had 4 doors it would be a chicken sedan! A higgs-boson particle walks up to a Catholic church. The priest stops him at the door and says “I’m sorry, you can’t participate in our service today.” The higgs-boson particle says “What?! You can’t have mass without me!” I visited the National Air and Space Museum. I believe the title is misleading because it is actually full of stuff. How do you spot a vegan at a party? Don’t worry they’ll tell you. Who is the roundest knight at King Arthur’s table? Sir Cumfrence. What’s the difference between an in-law and an outlaw? Outlaws are wanted.

My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, ‘Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?’ I mentally polished my halo and I said, ‘No, how are we alike?” You’re both old,’ he replied. When my grandson asked me how old I was, I teasingly replied, ‘I’m not sure.’ ‘Look in your underwear, Grandpa,’ he advised, ‘mine says I’m 4 to 6.’ A grandfather was delivering his grandchildren to their home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian dog. The children started discussing the dog’s duties. ‘They use him to keep crowds back,’ said one child. ‘No,’ said another. ‘He’s just for good luck.’ A third child brought the argument to a close. ‘They use the dogs,’ she said firmly, ‘to find the fire hydrants.’ A 6 year old was asked where his Grandma lived. “Oh,” he said, “she lives at the airport, when we want her, we just go and get her. Then when we’re done having her, we take her back to the airport.” Grandpa is the smartest man on earth. He teaches me good things, but I don’t get to see him enough to get as smart as him.

Balancing Work and Caring Betsy Ross in the Valley by Art Villafane, Lifestyles over 50 for Parents by Jeff Tintle, Lifestyles over 50

What do gymnasts, clowns, and accountants agree on? Balance; its vital for everyone. Depending on the situation balance can be difficult to achieve and falling short of equilibrium can lead to burnout, depression, and other problems. Not every balancing act comes with a simple little handbook, although every now and then one pops up to help us navigate the road of life, especially the sharp, scary turns. “Elder Care: A Six Step Guide to Balance Work & Family� is now here and made available to us by John Paul Marosy, a distinguished author, executive and aging specialist. “I had worked as an administrator in home care and elder care for fifteen years prior to my father informing our family that he had prostate cancer, but nothing in my professional experience had prepared me for the emotional roller coaster ride of eldercare,� says Marosy. For two years, he learned first hand what it was like to balance work with managing his father’s care and although Marosy knew where to go, who to see and what to ask, it was still a very challenging process. Ultimately, Marosy says, “we succeeded.� He dedicates his book to hospice care professionals and volunteers everywhere. Marosy encourages readers in his preface: “You can do it, too. I wrote this book to give you what I lacked: a road map for getting started on the caregiving journey.� Copies of the book are available for $14.95 at www.Bringingeldercarehome.com.

I recently spent some time with Betsy Ross (her real name). She is 92 years old and, yes, she makes U.S. flags. I wanted to speak with Betsy because at 92 she seems to keep a very active lifestyle. In addition to having sewn flags of all sizes she also knits and needlepoints small flags that she gives to deserving people.

As I sat with her and her daughter, Jean she showed me her scrapbook of photos and newspaper clips of her flag activities. She had letters from presidents (Reagan) and even Margaret Thatcher, former Prime Minister of England. She has taken part in many patriotic events here in the Valley and in other parts of the country. Betsy is a native of the Valley and has lived here all her life. When I asked if she was related to “the� Betsy Ross she said that they can trace back to her on one side of her family and on the other side they have traced it back to Plymouth Rock! Betsy has a remarkable memory. She recounted stories of her family life from when she was in grade school on to the present day. In fact she is attending a reunion at her grade school, Ritter, on November 3 , 2012 at Fullertown Fire Co. Whitehall. She invited all former students of any year to join her (for info: ritterreunion@yahoo.com). After a most pleasant two hours I must say I felt I had lived a bit of history and got to know a most remarkable woman. It is not often that you get to experience a bit of Americana: Betsy Ross – flag maker from the Lehigh Valley.

John Paul Marosy is currently the Executive Director of everyday LIFE, a national program, sponsored by Presbyterian Senior Living in the Lehigh Valley, designed to enable frail seniors who are medically eligible for skilled nursing care to remain in the comfort of their homes.

Credulous and Incredulous Facts •

The bloodhound is the only animal whose evidence is admissible in an American court. Roosevelt was the most superstitious president—he traveled continually but never left on a Friday. He also would not sit at the same table that held 13 other people. The only president to be head of a labor union was Ronald Reagan.

• •

The only river that flows both north and south of the equator is the Congo. It crosses the equator twice. A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defense: “My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for an offense committed by his limb.� “Well put,� the judge replied. “Using your logic, I sentence the defendant’s arm to one year’s imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses.� The defendant smiled. With his lawyer’s assistance he detached his artificial limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out. A man went in to rob a bank. He demanded the clerk to give him all the money. They told him to go sit out in his car and they would bring him the bags of money. He agreed and went out to his car. In the meantime, the people in the bank called the police. When they got there the man was still sitting in his car waiting for the money and they arrested him. Elvis Presley made only one television commercial - an ad for “Southern Maid Doughnuts� that ran in 1954. The only one of his sculptures that Michelangelo signed was the “The Pieta,� completed in 1500.

Getting Your Affairs in Order: 10 Steps for Creating a Smart End-of-Life Plan provided by Hunsicker Funeral Home

End-of-life planning sounds like something you do, well, towards the end of your life. But the reality is, no one knows what tomorrow will bring. If the worst were to happen, you wouldn’t want your family to be burdened with financial, legal and logistical problems. It’s easier than you think to create a smart end-of-life plan. These 10 steps will help you get your affairs in order, and provide you with the peace of mind of knowing that your wishes are clear and that your loved ones will be taken care of. 1. Have a will and update it periodically. The will designates, executors, guardians and trustees. Your executor’s first task is to locate your will, and you can help by keeping the original in a fairly obvious place. A good start is to put your will in an envelope on which you have typed your name and the word ‘”Will.” You should then place the envelope in a fireproof metal box, file cabinet or home safe. An alternative is to put it in a safe deposit box. 2. Have a health care directive (living will). A living will is a medical directive written in advance that sets forth your preference for treatment in the event of your inability to direct care. The document may include when the directive should he initiated and who has the decision-making responsibility to withdraw or withhold treatment. 3. Have a power of attorney. You should name your spouse or a close friend or relative to have power of attorney for you. Whoever you designate will be authorized to manage your affairs, typically financial ones, if you’re not able to handle them yourself. . Have life insurance. Purchase adequate life insurance for yourself now to help your family avoid financial pitfalls later. Having the right amount of coverage will help ensure that the dreams you have for your family will he realized even if you’re not there to witness them. Determining how much life insurance to buy can be

complicated, so it’s important to seek assistance from a qualified insurance professional. 5. Review beneficiary designations for your various financial accounts including group and individual benefits like life insurance and 401(k)s. Insurance policies and retirement plans are still relevant to your needs and wishes. Many people are under the misconception that if they have a will they are covered. However, beneficiaries designated in documents generally fall outside the scope of a will, so it is critical that you keep your records updated. 6. Specify where important financial account information is located. It may sound like an obvious thing to you, but few people keep a list of where important records pertaining to their saving, retirement plans, college funding plans, mortgage. and insurance reside. Fewer still could name them all quickly in an impromptu quiz. Keep a master list and review it annually. 7. Specify where important non-financial information and valuables are located such as marriage certificates, birth certificates, titles/deeds to the house/cars, passports, jewelry, safe deposit box key, items in storage facilities, etc. 8. Specify your final arrangements such as burial or cremation, where you want to be buried, whether you want to be an organ donor, etc. 9. Have a list of professionals who assist you with your family’s legal and financial affairs (insurance agent, attorney, accountant, etc.). 10. Explain to heirs how your trust works. Trusts arc often a useful legal and estate-planning device for protecting assets from estate taxes and providing a vehicle to be sure survivors get proper administrative and investment advice and counsel. An attorney is the best source of information about the proper use of trusts and whether one would be appropriate for you.

Becoming an Informed Voter by Pat Nemetch, President APRN, Member, PA State AARP Long Term Care Committee Now that fall is upon us, the leaves are changing colors and filling the skyline with bright reds, oranges and yellows found only during this time of year. Most children also have circled the end of October on the calendar, when Halloween brings out adorable ghosts, goblins and promises of candy. Just as importantly, October’s arrival means we’re nearing an end to the constant barrage of political campaign ads. There’s an old adage in political circles that says that no one likes running negative ads, but survey after survey shows they work with voters. Frankly, I’m concerned that a growing number of voters— including older adults--may base election decisions solely on claims made in campaign ads. The bottom line is this election will be critical for our country and will affect our future and the futures of our children and grandchildren. I encourage you to take the time to understand the issues and become informed voters. One way to ensure you’re an informed voter is to review AARP’s 2012 Voters’ Guides at www.earnedasay.org. The voter guides feature information from presidential, senatorial and congressional candidates – in their own words – on their plans to strengthen Social Security, Medicare and financial security. In the coming weeks, AARP will also be releasing Voters’ Guides for state elections addressing a variety of issues including utilities, retirement security, health, and fraud. But before you can cast your vote this November, it’s important that you have the necessary identification required by Pennsylvania’s new voter id law. While the legal fight to stop implementation of the new law is continuing, older adults who are currently registered and have voted for years

must be ready to produce the right identification necessary to vote this November. I also recommend checking with colleagues, friends and acquaintances to be sure they have the proper id needed to cast their vote. This issue is important because according to a national study, nearly one in five citizens over 65 lack a current, government issued photo ID. Older adults often give up their driver’s license or may never have had one. Seniors are also more likely to lack raised seal birth certificates necessary to acquire a new photo ID. As a non-partisan organization, AARP supports encouraging participation among all voters while assuring the integrity of the voting process. The fact is, with no evidence of any significant voter fraud at the polls anywhere in Pennsylvania, the voter id law attempts to solve a problem that doesn’t exist. So although court challenges to the law are still underway, older adults can’t run the risk of having their vote not counted in November. Be sure to visit www.votespa.com to learn exactly what identification you’ll need to vote, and take advantage of the help available to secure the necessary documents. In the meantime, be sure to get out and stay active this fall. As for me, I’m rooting for an Indian Summer before settling down with colder temperatures.

A Name To Live Up To

By Margie Skibinski, Comforting Home Care

On a crisp fall evening in 2002, an elderly woman was found wandering dark streets two miles from her home. A good Samaritan found her and brought her to a local establishment. The woman stated she was on her way to the senior center where she went to every day. She thought the bus forgot to pick her up. The problem was it was eight o’clock at night, and the woman had Alzheimer’s disease. The police were contacted, and they contacted the women’s son to pick her up.

It is important to me that we care for our elderly. It is with this experience and passion that I started Comforting Home Care, and I promise to treat everyone with the dignity and compassion that my Grandmom enjoyed. We are family owned and operate here in the Lehigh Valley. If this story resembles your situation, we ask that you call us to discuss home care options and learn about our services. You may visit our website at www.http://comfortinghome. com or call me at 610-625-5600.

The woman’s family decided that she could no longer live by herself. This is a common story that we have all heard before or read in the local newspaper, but for me it hit close to home. This was not a stranger in a news article, this was Margaret C. Grider, the woman I was named after; it was my grandmother. At the time, I had been a registered nurse for twelve years. I was also a single mother with four small children. I knew that personal care homes are a good option for some, but knowing Grandmom I did not think it was the best option for her. I wanted her to be at home and maintain as much dignity and independence as she could; she wanted this as well. With the help of family and professional caregivers it was decided that Grandmom would live with the children and me. She stayed there comfortably for almost three years. She was there for holidays, family functions, and vacations. When it was too difficult to take her with us, we had respite care available, and she was able to be comfortable in her own surroundings.

Eventually Grandmom had to be put on hospice care. Even then she was able to live at home thanks to the resources available. Early in the morning of June 30, 2005, Grandmom passed away, in her own bed, as I held her hand.

Tips for Living With Vision Loss

by Karen Z. Huetter, Development Director, Center for Vision Loss When your senior relative experiences vision loss caused by the age-related eye diseases—macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy—you often assume that they can no longer perform daily tasks. How can they cook, do laundry or sign a check if they can’t see well? Often the answer is not to take over these activities for the person, but to make sure that the individual is introduced to adaptive techniques that will make life easier as soon as they are ready to learn them.

Seniors with low vision still can and want to accomplish many basic tasks for themselves. Encourage them to find alternative ways that are helpful for them and then be sure to support their efforts. Organization is critical, for example. Suggest they always put important items like the television remote control in a designated location so they do not misplace them and become panicked. Store foods in cabinets and cooking utensils in drawers in related groups to help in meal preparation. Label food containers in large print using a dark felt-tip marker or use a system of rubber bands to mark the contents of different kinds of cans. Place raised dots on the stove and microwave to mark visually or tactilely important temperature settings. Your road to recoverY Begins at the Lutheran home at topton

Seniors can enjoy mealtime more if they can easily locate their plate and utensils on the table. Use contrasting colors for the plate and the placemat or tablecloth. Place beverages in contrasting colored containers such as coffee in a white mug. Inexpensive writing guides can help a person continue to sign checks and write letters. Bold-line paper with dark lines and larger spaces makes it easier to keep a shopping list or reminders of tasks to be done. The Center for Vision Loss, the region’s only community benefit organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with vision loss, can suggest many more adaptive techniques and devices. The agency provides casework services, escorted transportation with a sighted guide, low vision services, support group meetings, lifeskills education and socialization activities to help restore independence and quality of life. Many useful adaptive items are sold in their Vision Aids Store. Call the Allentown office, 845 West Wyoming St., Allentown (610-433-6018) or the Monroe County office 4215 Manor Drive, Stroudsburg, at 570-992-7787, or click on www. centerforvisionloss.org for more information.

You Have Reached Your Destination! by Alan Allegra

“After 300 yards, turn left,” says the tiny yet enchanting feminine voice with the colorful map for a face. In a world of technological wizardry, I have finally entered the 20th century. I have no cell phone, no computer, and no IPod, but I have titanium implants, two VCRs, borderline HDL, and a GPS. My GPS is my friend. The two most comforting phrases spoken by my 12-volt companion are, “Replanning,” and “You have reached your destination.” The first is a gentle reminder that I didn’t pay attention to the previous instruction, and the latter means I made it safe and sound. To travelers, GPS means “Global Positioning System.” This system lets you know where you are on earth and, turn by turn, how to get to your destination. It is not infallible, but for the navigationally challenged, it’s good enough. It gets you where you want to go. When traveling the unstoppable pathway of time to your final destination, there is another GPS that never fails and never needs recharging. It was programmed once, never needs updating, and works for everyone everywhere, in every culture and ethnic group, no matter how technologically or otherwise challenged. I call this system “God Provides Scripture.” No matter where you are, where you have been, and where you think you are headed, this GPS will give precise, easy-to-understand direction. You will always reach your destination. The bible’s guarantee is, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16, 17). That includes every possible spiritual need you can have. In other words, Scripture provides directions to keep you on track and make you complete.

through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it” (Matthew 7:13, 14). There is one caveat: The road to life is a toll road. There is a price to pay that no man can afford. That price is the punishment for sin. No one is allowed to pass through the gate until the price is paid. The good news—the gospel—is that Jesus Christ paid that penalty on the cross: “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people” (2 Timothy 2:5, 6). Jesus paid the toll and opened wide the gate to heaven! Along the way, we will drift aside from the paths of righteousness, but GPS will replan. We can return to the Scriptures to find where we’ve strayed, receive forgiveness, and get back on the path. Jesus promised: “Whoever comes to me I will never cast out” (John 6:37). After the twists and turns of life, we will hear a comforting voice say, “You have reached your destination!” (Matthew 25:23).

God offers everyone two eternal destinations: “And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt” (Daniel 12:2). “Everlasting life” means “heaven;” everlasting contempt is “hell.” The path you take in life will determine your final destination. King David said of the right way: “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (Psalm 16:11). On the other hand, Jesus himself gave this warning: “But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him!” (Luke 12:5). God has only two destinations programmed into His GPS, and it’s easy to pick the wrong one. Jesus said, “Enter

Pennsylvania’s Voter ID Law by Tom Corbett, Governor

Editor’s note: The following information is taken directly from a document issued by the Pennsylvania Department of State. At press time it was still uncertain as to whether this new law would be struck down by the state’s Supreme Court. Please be sure to turn to your news sources for a final determination as to whether you may need to follow these new regulations. FAQ - Department of State Identification Card What is a free department of state photo ID card? Beginning in the end of August, 2012, PennDOT will begin issuing FREE Department of State photo ID cards that registered voters can use to vote at the polls. Who is eligible for a free department of state photo id card? Only registered voters who do not have another photo ID acceptable for voting, who do not possess all of the documentation required to obtain the free PennDOT photo ID and cannot obtain the needed documentation, or cannot obtain the documentation without the payment of a fee will be eligible for a FREE Department of State photo ID card. Examples of missing documents include a certified copy of a birth certificate or Social Security card. All other eligible voters will be given a FREE PennDOT photo ID. Where will a voter be able to receive a FREE Department of State ID card? Registered voters who cannot obtain the proper documentation needed for a FREE PennDOT photo ID card will be able to obtain a FREE Department of State ID card at their local PennDOT Driver’s License Center. PennDOT Driver’s License Center locations can be found on the web at www.dot.state.pa.us or by phone through PennDOT’s Customer Call Center at 1-800-932-4600. What is the process for obtaining a FREE Department of State photo ID for voting? All registered voters seeking to obtain a FREE Department of State ID for voting purposes must first apply for a FREE PennDOT photo ID for voting. When a PennDOT customer service representative determines that a registered voter does not have the necessary documentation to receive a FREE PennDOT photo ID, the PennDOT employee will then begin the process of issuing a FREE Department Of State photo ID for voting.

Day Care for Adults

activities, crafts, games, cognitive stimulation, exercise and more.

Many of the problems that we face are caused and compounded by poor planning. Lack of preparation is easy to overcome in the mundane aspects of life, but when a medical issue strikes, it becomes a game changer as even the smallest issues become magnified. For this reason Lifestyles over 50 endeavors to bring readers a care feature each month on different care options. This month our focus is on adult day care programs and services.

Studies show that seniors who get out of their house to socialize are happier and healthier. Also many adult day programs offer auxiliary services like hair salon and barber services, field trips, gardening, music therapy, pet therapy, podiatry care, and other fun activities. Most day care services also provide or can arrange transportation from home to the adult day center location.

by Jeff Tintle, Lifestles over 50

If you care for a spouse or aging parent who has difficulty with mobility or daily living activities you may be interested in learning about adult day services. Many desire to live at home as long as possible and adult day services are becoming a very popular option for seniors. Fundamentally, adult day services are similar to daycare for children. Participants are dropped off during business hours Monday through Friday to allow the caregiver, spouse and family members the ability to run errands, go to work or just take a break and get rest.

Anne Grogan talks with client

Adult day services can be funded through Medicaid, Veterans Administration benefits, long-term care plans, and To learn more about adult day services I met with Anne private pay.

The facility is worth the 5-minute ride from downtown Easton as I was greeted by a friendly staff and numerous resources on aging. The Center offers a range of services including a medical adult day center, memory clinic, geriatric assessment and other services that help the older adult and their family maximize the individual’s physical, social, safety, psychological and long Our doctors range planning aspects of their lives. “Here at the Center we invite people to stop by, pick up resources and ask us questions,” Anne says. “We get questions on everything from identifying early stages of Dementia to assisting families in setting up power of attorney.” With Anne’s easy smile and down-to-earth personality it’s no wonder that the Center has undergone tremendous growth as many from the community come to seek her help. Anne explained that her adult day center, The Comfort Zone, is a medical adult day center. Depending on the health and care needs of the individual there are two types of adult day centers; medical and social. Adult day centers are fundamentally the same they offer different levels of health care services. Centers that are medically oriented have various health care workers and specialists on staff to deal with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, diabetes, congestive heart failure and other medical conditions. The participants often need to receive specialized care and attention while at the adult day centers. Social adult day centers do not offer the same level of skilled medical care, but focus on also offering a safe, healthy environment for seniors. Both centers offer numerous social

Adult Day Care Services provide a coordinated program of professional and compassionate services for adults in a community-based group setting. Services are designed to provide social and some health services to adults who need supervised care in a safe place outside the home during the day. They also afford caregivers respite from the demanding responsibilities of caregiving. Adult day centers generally operate during normal business hours five days a week. Some programs offer services in the evenings and on weekends. Adult day care facilities for the elderly are licensed and inspected by the Department of Aging. The chart above highlights the services and features of local facilities. Those interested in learning more should call the facilities for the most current information and to schedule a tour.
