Mom is a social butterfly with a green thumb. When her big garden and home became too much, we knew exactly what we wanted in a community: gardens to tend and new friends. Eskaton had it all. Mom is happy here, and I have peace of mind.

INTRODUCTION

2-1-1 is here to listen, understand and help

Richard Abrusci is the Executive Director of 2-1-1 Sacramento

Welcome to the 2019-2020 Senior Resource Directory. In its eighth year, we’re proud to have again partnered with the Sacramento Bee to provide this valuable resource. Aging is a natural and continuous process. Time passes by in the blink of an eye. We see our friends and family reaching monumental milestones, like graduating from college, when only yesterday it seemed they were starting their first day of school. We see more wrinkles in the mirror and chuckle at the memories that each carries. Every strand of grey hair reminds us that we’re another day wiser and lucky to be alive. At the same time, aging can also difficult. We start to find the smallest of tasks seemingly become more and more challenging. Changing a light bulb now seems overwhelming. Grabbing groceries has lost its excitement and now feels like a chore. Getting together with friends and family becomes too complicated, so we simply stay home. The truth is we all need support, a community to be our champion. We should boast proudly of our accomplishments and recognize that it’s OK to ask for help! 2-1-1 Sacramento is committed to and honored to be your champion. We recognize and appreciate you. It is because of your steadfast commitment to change, your desire to create equality for all, and your commitment to fighting the good fight that we are here today. Age is just a number; it does not define you, nor should it hold you back. Embrace the community, your supports, and your champions. Whenever you need us, we’re just a phone call away. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Call 2-1-1, we are here to listen, understand and help. With gratitude, Richard Abrusci

CAREGIVING Most older adults — about 94 percent — want to stay at home as they age. But a new survey from the Home Instead Senior Care shows many seniors are redefining what it means to age in place, revealing that one in four plan to move to a new home to accommodate their changing needs. Among seniors who want to age in a new home, many older adults are searching for improved practicality — with top desired features, including single-floor living and easy or low-cost maintenance. For seniors who want to stay in their current homes, nearly two-thirds have given thought to age-friendly modifications. When seniors are faced with the question of what features are best for them, it’s important to consider effects of aging that could make certain areas of the home hazardous, such as: Agility and mobility Conditions such as arthritis can impair mobility. Stairs that were once easy to navigate might now present a challenge. Balance Neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and other chronic conditions increase the risk for balance problems, as well as falls on slippery floors. Eyesight Studies indicate that a 60-year-old needs at least three times more ambient light to see than a 20-year-old. Poor eyesight may make medication management and personal grooming difficult, and can lead to tripping hazards. Memory The effects of memory loss might cause an older adult to forget to take medication or pay bills on time. — NewsUSA

With years of experience and a willingness to make a difference in their communities, more older adults are volunteering to serve their peers in need. By doing so, they’re staying active, meeting new people and learning new skills — factors that contribute to health and longevity. But most importantly, they’re making a difference in the lives of other people. Volunteers Making a Difference in the Lives of Older Adults, a new report from the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a), highlights five volunteer programs that are changing lives. The five volunteers highlighted in the n4a report represent thousands of older adult volunteers across the country who give their time and talents to ensure that other, older Americans live with dignity and choices in homes and communities for as long as possible. They may inspire you to volunteer your time and talents. In Atlanta, trained volunteers teach health and wellness classes to their peers. The classes cover topics such as fitness, healthy sexuality, disaster preparedness and issues related to mental health. Staff members report that most of their volunteer community educators are in their mid-60s with the most dedicated volunteers in their 70s and 80s. Veterans in Maine are volunteering to visit other veterans who are often isolated in rural communities. They swap stories and provide companionship. The volunteers also link their fellow veterans to social services and programs that address unmet needs. For details on how you can volunteer, contact the Eldercare Locator at 800-677-1116.

Even in the privacy of a doctor’s office, many patients hesitate to discuss one subject — money. While nearly one in four older adults feel stressed about their medical bills — and only half of them have spoken to their healthcare provider about it, according to a University of Michigan poll. But it pays to ask about the cost of your treatment. Speaking with your healthcare provider about treatment options and out-of-pocket costs should be one of the first things you do after being diagnosed with a chronic illness. But sometimes it can be hard to know how to start the conversation. Here are five questions to ask: 1. Can you or someone in your office help me find out how much this medication will cost out-of-pocket? 2. Does this medication have a generic equivalent that I can use? 3. Could a change in dosage or frequency help reduce my costs, but still be effective? 4. Is there a less expensive way to receive my treatment? 5. Do you have drug coupon discount cards for my medication, or free samples? 6. Can you or someone in your office help me find financial assistance to cover my costs? Is there a charitable foundation that I can apply to? — BPT

FOOD/ CLOTHING PROGRAMS Healthy snacks are important to maintain high energy levels throughout the day. Recommended by Toby Smithson, a registered dietitian, here are three tips to ensure your healthy snacks are keeping your body fueled. Long wait, smart snack: Always carry smart, portable snacks to have on hand for long breaks — or to avoid buying overpriced food. Smithson encourages snacks with protein, fiber and good fats to help you stay energized. Balance: Snacks like chips and sweet treats can mean unbalanced eating with too many empty calories that cause your energy to take a dive. Choose almonds, dried fruit (or trail mix!), jerky, hard-boiled eggs, celery with peanut butter, roasted chickpeas, hummus with carrots, pumpkin seeds and popcorn. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate: Bring a reusable water bottle or thermos that you can fill up at water fountains or water stations to stay hydrated throughout the day. Add orange slices or mint leaves to give your water a refreshing twist. Keep fluids with sugar and salt to a minimum.

HEALTH SERVICES 27

HEALTH SERVICES Many people expect their eyesight to decline with age — perhaps requiring a stronger eyeglass prescription or “readers.” Some vision changes are linked to age, but there are steps to consider to help our eyes stay as healthy as possible. Dr. Linda Chous, OD, chief eye care officer, UnitedHealthcare, answered the following questions: 1. What are some common vision-related diseases that come with age? Age-related macular degeneration (AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in people over 65. AMD causes damage to the macula, the small spot on the retina that enables people to see clearly and view things straight ahead of them. Common symptoms are distortion and blurring of the center of your field of vision. If caught early, there are potential benefits from certain prescription medications and nutritional supplements. Late-stage AMD is much more difficult to treat. Certain factors like heredity, ultraviolet light exposure and smoking may increase the risk of AMD. Consult with your eye doctor to determine if a preventive treatment plan is right for you. A cataract is the clouding of the lens in your eye, blocking the flow of light to the back of your eye (retina), which ultimately causes loss of sight. Most form slowly and do not cause pain. Significant clouding can form in some people and, ultimately, negatively impact vision. Cataracts are treatable via surgery that replaces the clouded lens with a clear plastic lens. Cataract surgery is generally safe and one of the most common surgeries in the U.S. Once a cataract is removed, it can’t grow back. Glaucoma is caused by increased pressure inside the eye, which can cause permanent vision loss and blindness if untreated. The most common form usually has no noticeable symptoms in the early stages — the only way to detect it is routine testing. Treatment may include prescription eye drops, oral medications, laser treatment surgery or a combination of any of these. It is important to find glaucoma early because once vision is lost, it cannot be regained. 2. What are the best ways to keep my eyes healthy as I age? Stop smoking. Smokers are up to four times more likely to develop AMD and may contribute to development of cataracts. Maintain a healthy weight. Conditions associated with being overweight, like diabetes and heart disease, increase your risk of vision loss from cataracts, glaucoma and retinopathy. Wear sunglasses. Help protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet rays. Be physically active. People who are physically active experienced less vision loss over 20 years compared to those who are less active. Eat a healthy diet. Colorful fruits and vegetables contain nutrients that can keep your eyes healthy and reduce AMD risk. — BPT

The importance of having a healthy relationship with your doctor As an older adult, having a healthy relationship with your doctor is important — especially if you suffer from a chronic condition. According to the National Council on Aging, nearly 80% of older adults have a chronic condition like diabetes, arthritis and hypertension. Furthermore, 25% of older adults suffer from a mental illness such as depression, anxiety and bi-polar disorder. But regardless if you have a chronic condition or mental illness, it’s important to visit your doctor on a regular basis. If you have questions or concerns, create a list before you visit your doctor. Make sure to bring your medical

records, insurance cards and phone numbers of pharmacies that you use. Your list should include: 1. A description of your symptoms 2. When did your symptoms start occurring? How long do your symptoms last?

HOUSING 35

HOUSING Shopping. Cooking. Cleaning. The burdens of living alone were taking a toll on Joyce, who at age 89 was the oldest resident in her apartment building. Though she had spent a lifetime saving money, Joyce wasn’t sure what she could afford. Joyce’s senior living journey isn’t unique. Most people either aren’t prepared for the potential costs of senior living, or think they aren’t prepared. Mary Sue Patchett, the Executive Vice President of community and field operations for Brookdale Senior Living, recommends avoiding sticker shock by assessing current expenses. Patchett recommends seeking a flexible pricing structure at a senior living community — as one size doesn’t fit all. Making a choice that fits your situation means you won’t be paying for unnecessary services. Current assets and income are what most people use to pay for senior living, just as they would pay for expenses staying in their current home: savings, pension or retirement plan funds, social security and annuities. Like Joyce, one big source of funds comes from the sale of their current home. Long-term care insurance is a possible source for older adults with chronic disability or illness, if they have a policy. Rules regarding benefits and eligibility vary per state and policy. Veterans’ benefits, through the Veterans Aid and Attendance Pension, can help veterans and spouses offset costs of long-term care and/or assisted living at some communities. Family support is a source to consider for help with the cost of assisted living. Families often contribute to the cost of senior living. — BPT

40 LEGAL

LEGAL The financial exploitation of older people is a rampant epidemic in America. A recent report by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau revealed that each incident of financial fraud cost older adults ages 70 to 79 an average of $45,300. And when the older adult knew the suspect, the average loss rose to about $50,000. As older adults experience more wealth events — from selling a home to making IRA withdrawals — they become more vulnerable to scammers. This can often happen when older people lose touch with those who can help protect them. While technology has made lots of things easier, including managing money, it has also increased the ways for scammers to weaponize fraudulent activity. It’s more critical than ever to empower older adults to protect their financial accounts — and for trusted family and friends to help them do so, before it’s too late. Through increased awareness and concrete steps, we can help our loved ones better protect their financial assets. HOW TO SPOT FINANCIAL FRAUD Former FBI section chief of the Cyber Threat Division Greg Ruppert, now the head of financial crimes risk management at Charles Schwab, said, “I’ve seen every trick scammers use to separate older adults from their money and they are ever more targeted and sophisticated in their approach. Financial scams, no matter the amount lost, are devastating to older adults, who rely on those resources and are unable to recoup the loss.” Common types of scams targeting older adults include healthcare insurance scams, counterfeit prescription drug schemes, romance scams, person-in-need scams, lottery scams, funeral and cemetery scams, telemarketing/phone scams and investment schemes. HOW FAMILY MEMBERS CAN HELP Help protect your older family member against financial scams by staying engaged so you can spot the signs of an investment scam and help if warning signs appear. Speak to them regularly and be on alert for clues, for example if they mention being asked for money, or that managing their finances is confusing or overwhelming. When you visit them in their home, notice visual cues such as unpaid bills or piles of unopened mail and physical clues like fearful behavior, worsening of an illness or disability as the result of the pressure from a scammer’s tactics. One of the biggest risk factors for older adults when fraud has taken place is being too embarrassed to admit they may have been scammed to ask for help. This hesitancy can only be overcome with regular communication and wellness check-ins with trusted family members. — BPT

SENIOR/ COMMUNITY CENTERS Social isolation is a little-thought-of, but growing, factor in the health and well-being of people 65 and older — and it may play a greater role than obesity as a public health hazard, according to research at Brigham Young University. But what does “social isolation” really mean? It’s how often we interact with others, and how much we enjoy those connections. In fact, social interaction is so important that it’s actually a key factor in maintaining good health. As we age, a support system is more important than ever — because often, basic life circumstances may have changed. For example, seniors may be on a fixed income, with less money to spend on eating out. Or may not see well enough to drive. Bottom line, it can become difficult to fulfill the basic human need to connect with others. “Relationships really do matter when it comes to healthy aging, because there’s a strong correlation between a satisfying social life and a senior’s overall well-being,” says Larry Weinstein M.D., the Chief Medical Officer of Humana Behavioral Health. “If you’re feeling isolated, the first step is to talk your doctor, and it’s important to talk to family and friends for encouragement and support. There also are lifestyle changes we can make to better nurture our emotional health, and by extension, our physical health.” —NewsUSA

46 SUPPORT GROUPS

SUPPORT GROUPS Support groups bring together people who are going through or have gone through similar experiences. For example, this common ground might be cancer, chronic medical conditions, addiction, bereavement or caregiving. A support group provides an opportunity for people to share personal experiences and feelings, coping strategies or firsthand information about diseases or treatments. Structure of support groups: Support groups may be offered by a nonprofit advocacy organization, clinic, hospital or community organization. They also may be independent of any organization and run entirely by group members. Formats of support groups vary, including face-to-face meetings, teleconferences or online communities. A lay person — someone who shares or has shared the group’s common experience — often leads a support group, but a group also may be led by a professional facilitator, such as a nurse, social worker or psychologist. Support groups aren’t the same as group therapy sessions. Group therapy is a specific type of mental health treatment that brings together several people with similar conditions under the guidance of a licensed mental health care provider. Benefits of support groups: The common experience among members of a support group often means they have similar feelings, worries, everyday problems, treatment decisions or treatment side effects. Participating in a group provides you with an opportunity to be with people who are likely to have a common purpose and likely to understand one another. Benefits of participating in a support group include: 1. Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged 2. Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue 3. Improving skills to cope with challenges 4. Staying motivated to manage chronic conditions or stick to treatment plans 5. Gaining a sense of empowerment, control or hope — Mayo Clinic, www.mayoclinic.org

48 TRANSPORTATION

TRANSPORTATION A poll of ASE-certified automotive technicians indicated that drivers over age 60 are among the most conscientious when it comes to taking their vehicles in for routine maintenance and repair. The experts at the nonprofit National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) remind consumers that good communication between shop and customer can help make the repair process go smoothly. “Professionally run repair establishments recognize the importance of two-way communications,” notes Martin Lawson, ASE’s editorial director. “Just as you would with your physician, be prepared to discuss your vehicle’s aches and pains once you are at the repair shop.” The following tips from ASE should make the repair process go smoothly. Don’t ignore what your vehicle is telling you. Look for: 1. Unusual sounds, odors, drips or leaks. 2. Changes in acceleration and fluid levels. 3. Worn tires, belts and hoses. 4. Note when the problem occurs. Stay involved; communicate your findings. 5. Be prepared to describe symptoms. In larger shops, you’ll probably speak with a service consultant rather than with the technician directly. 6. Carry a written list of the symptoms that you can give to the technician or service consultant. 7. Don’t be embarrassed to request simple definitions of technical terms. 8. Ask to be called and apprised of the problem, course of action and costs before work starts. 9. Before you leave, make a note of shop policies regarding labor rates, guarantees and acceptable methods of payment. 10. Keep a record of all repairs and service. ASE was founded to improve the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians. ASE-certified technicians can be found at every type of repair facility; certified technicians wear blue and white ASE shoulder insignia and carry credentials listing their exact area(s) of certification, while their employers display the blue and white ASE sign.

50 SOCIAL SECURITY

SOCIAL SECURITY For more than 80 years, Social Security has helped secure today and tomorrow by providing financial benefits, information, and tools that provide a safety net throughout life’s journey. When most people think of Social Security, they think of retirement benefits — with good reason. However, SSA provides much more than retirement coverage. In fact, Social Security is with you throughout your life. SSA is there from day one, when parents apply for a Social Security number for their newborn child. We provide financial security to many children and adults before they reach retirement, including the chronically ill, children of deceased parents, and wounded warriors. Social Security is also there when the unexpected happens. If you cannot work because of a physical or mental condition that is expected to last at least one year or result in death, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. SSI benefits are also payable to people age 65 and older without disabilities who have limited income and resources. Social Security retirement benefits are available as early as age 62. You can increase your Social Security retirement benefit by eight percent per year if you defer filing for retirement until age 70. If you receive Social Security retirement benefits, some members of your family may also be eligible for benefits, including spouses, former spouses, and children. Additionally, benefits are payable to eligible survivors should you pass away. Even if you are not eligible for SSA benefits now, you should consider creating a my Social Security account. Creating this free, secure, online account allows you to access your personal Social Security information. During your working years, you can use my Social Security to view your Social Security Statement which contains information about your earnings history. Additionally, you can view estimates of future benefits you and your family could potentially receive. In many states, including California, you can use your my Social Security account to request a replacement Social Security card. If you already receive Social Security benefits or have Medicare, you can use my Social Security to check your benefit information; change your address, phone number, and electronic payment methods; obtain a benefit verification letter; get a replacement Medicare card; or get a replacement SSA-1099. Don’t delay, establish your my Social Security account at www.socialsecurity.gov/myaccount. You can also learn more about our programs and services, use our online retirement calculators, or file for benefits, by going to www.socialsecurity.gov or by calling (800) 772-1213. As a Public Affairs Specialist, I am honored to share information about Social Security’s programs and services with the Sacramento community. I am a frequent contributor to local newspapers, newsletters and online publications and provide speeches and seminars throughout the region. If you would like to request a presentation for your group, please visit our website and complete an “Ask for a Speaker” request. I look forward to sharing how Social Security is with you through your life’s journey, securing today and tomorrow. —Wanda Gonzales

Social Security is here for you Social Security turns 84 this year. With more than eight decades of service, we’ve provided benefits to one of the most diverse populations in history. Regardless of background, we cover retirees, wounded warriors, chronically ill children, and people who have lost loved ones. Knowing that we cover so many different people, we’ve created People Like Me webpages that speak to specific audiences. Sharing these pages could make a positive impact on someone’s life. Here are a few that might speak to you. Do you know someone who needs to start saving for retirement? No matter where they are in their careers, Social Security can help. It’s never too late to start planning. We offer two pages, one for people early in their career at www.socialsecurity.gov/people/ earlycareer and one for people who have been working for a while, www.socialsecurity.gov/ people/midcareer. Social Security plays an important role in providing economic security for women. Nearly 55 percent of the people receiving Social Security benefits are women. Women face greater economic challenges in retirement. First, women tend to live longer than men do, so they are more likely to exhaust their retirement savings. A woman who is 65 years

old today can expect to live, on average, until about 87, while a 65-year-old man can expect to live, on average, until about 84. Second, women often have lower lifetime earnings than men, which usually means they receive lower benefits. And, third, women may reach retirement with smaller pensions and other assets than men. Share this page with someone who needs this information and may need help planning: www.socialsecurity. gov/people/women. We proudly serve wounded warriors and veterans. They endure sacrifices to preserve the freedoms Americans treasure. Many of them do not know they might be entitled to benefits. Share our resources with them to make sure they are getting the benefits they deserve: www.socialsecurity. gov/people/veterans. If you didn’t see a page that is important to you here, look at our general People Like Me page at www.socialsecurity. gov/people.

Changing your direct deposit information with Social Security With our busy lives, it’s easy to fall into that cycle of postponing some tasks because of other priorities. This may be true for you when it comes to changing your payment method for Social Security benefits. Unfortunately, forgetting to change your payment method can lead to delayed payments. The most convenient way to change your direct deposit information with Social Security is by creating a my Social Security account online at www.socialsecurity.gov/ myaccount. Once you create your account, you can update your bank information without leaving the comfort of your home. Another way to change your direct deposit is by calling Social Security at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) to make the change over the phone. If you prefer to speak to someone in-person, you can visit your local Social Security office with the necessary information. Because we are committed to protecting your personal information, we need some form of identification to verify who you are. If you are online, we verified your identity when you initially created your my Social Security account. All you need to do is log in at www.socialsecurity.gov/ myaccount with your secure username and password to gain

access to your information. If you call Social Security, we will ask identifying questions to ensure we are speaking to the right person. If you visit the office, you will need to bring a driver’s license or some form of ID with you. Once we have identified that you are the correct person and are authorized to make changes on the Social Security record, all we need is the routing number, account number, and type of account established.

We don’t ask for a voided check, nor do we obtain verification from the bank. Therefore, you should be sure you are providing accurate information to us. Because you may be unsure if your direct deposit change will affect your next payment, we highly recommend that you do not close the old bank account until you have seen your first Social Security deposit in the new bank account. That way, you can feel

secure you will receive your benefits on time, regardless of when the change was reported to Social Security. When you have to report changes to your direct deposit, be sure to visit us online at www.socialsecurity.gov/ myaccount. Social Security always strives to put you in control by providing the best experience and service no matter where, when, or how you decide to do business with us.

Communities fighting fraud Older people are at a greater risk of fraud and other forms of financial exploitation. The United States Postal Service has seen an increase in mail fraud and is promoting community strength and fraud awareness as a way to prevent abuse. Social Security agrees. You can help your more vulnerable loved ones fight fraud. You or a loved one might receive an advertisement in the mail, but it could be from a private company or even a scammer. United States law prohibits people or non-government businesses from using words or emblems that mislead others. Their advertising can’t lead people to believe that they represent, are somehow affiliated with, or endorsed or approved by Social Security. Scammers commonly target people who are looking for Social Security program and benefit information. If you receive misleading information about Social Security, send the complete advertisement, including the envelope it came in, to: Office of the Inspector General Fraud Hotline Social Security Administration P.O. Box 17768 Baltimore, MD 21235 Community can simply mean

your family unit. The more you know about what your loved ones are exposed to, the better you can protect them. We also receive reports where someone pretending to be a Social Security employee has contacted members of the public. The intent of this type of call may be to steal your identity and/or money from your bank accounts. They may state that your Social Security number will be

suspended or they may demand immediate payment. The caller generally asks you for personal information such as your Social Security number, date of birth, your mother’s maiden name, or your bank or financial account information. You should not provide any of this information to these individuals. It’s possible that a Social Security employee may contact you to follow-up on a previous

application for Social Security benefits or to follow-up on other business you initiated with Social Security. Remember, Social Security employees will never threaten you or demand any kind of payment in exchange for services. It’s important that you report any and all fraud. This can only strengthen our communities and your family. You can report Social Security fraud at oig.ssa.gov/report.
