THE ABCs of AGING ELDERCARE TERMS YOU SHOULD KNOW

Grappling with the decisions involved with caring for an elderly parent? It’s hard to try to find solutions that meet everyone’s needs. It’s nearly impossible if you don’t know the jargon and the acronyms. Here are some of the terms you need to know:

• Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) – These include basic personal activities, such as bathing, eating, dressing, and using the toilet. • Acute – A condition of short and sharp course; opposite of chronic. • Adult Day Services – Programs offering social and recreational activities, supervision, health services and meals in a protective setting for older adults with physical or cognitive disabilities. • Adult Protective Services (APS) – APS investigates situations involving elders (ages 65 plus and dependent adults, physically or mentally impaired, ages 18 to 64), who are reported to be endangered by physical, sexual or financial abuse, abandonment, isolation, abduction, neglect or self-neglect. You may contact APS on their toll-free hotline at (877) 477-3646. • Advance Directive – A legal document in which people give others instructions about their preferences with regard to health-care decisions in case they become incapacitated in some way. Two types of advance directives are a “living will” and a “durable power-of-attorney” for health care. • Assisted Living Facility (also called Personal or Residential Care Home) – Bridges the gap between independent living and skilled nursing home care. Typical residents are elders needing assistance with daily activities but not constant nursing care. A variety of amenities may be offered. • Care/Case Manager (CM) – Geriatric care/case managers assess clients’ needs, create service plans, and coordinate and monitor services. Typically, care/case managers are specially trained and licensed nurses or social workers. • Chronic – A medical condition of long duration, denoting a disease of slow progress and long continuance. • Community Care – Programs and services in your own community that can assist you in caring for an elder. Includes informal networks, such as friends and neighbors; information and referral services; case management services (found at hospitals and social services agencies); transportation services; nutritional services, such as Meals on Wheels; respite care (relief for caregivers); hospice care; and support groups. • Congregate Meals / Congregate Meal Programs – Nutrition services (usually lunch) in a group setting that is designed to maintain or improve the physical and social well-being of older adults.

Requires payment of a monthly fee and often a large lump-sum entrance fee. • Custodial Care – Care that does not require specialized training or services. Assistance with activities of daily living, as well as with self-administration of medications and preparing special diets. • Durable Power of Attorney – A document that names a person who will act as someone’s agent and who will make decisions on his or her behalf, if he or she is incapacitated. The power of attorney can be restricted to a specific area (such as health care) or can cover broad decisionmaking responsibilities. In order to grant a power of attorney, you must be competent. You do not lose the legal right to act on your own behalf. Consult an attorney for more details. • Emergency Response System/Personal Response System (ERS/PRS) – A call button usually worn by the older individual that can summon help in case of emergency. Also called lifelines or personal emergency response systems. • Gerontologist – A person who specialized in the study of the elderly.

The program also provides public education on Medicare and health- coverage issues. • Home Delivered Meals – Also known as “Meals on Wheels”. Meals (usually lunch) provided to frail, elderly, home-bound residents of the community. Designed to maintain or improve the physical and social well-being of older homebound adults. • Home Health Aide (HHA) – A semi-skilled professional, often employed by a home health agency, who provides in-home assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). •
