intergenerational fans

S

ports fans are a group of people united by a common cause. They have the same goal – winning – and a shared history filled with anecdotes of good games and bad calls. In a world where most of our connections are virtual, sporting events truly bring people together. Recently, my staff and I have embarked on an exciting project to use sports to inspire local retirement living providers to think differently about their services. We put together THE BIG EVENT for Senior-Serving Professionals at Nationals

Park in April. The event attracted nearly 300 professionals to hear the story of two of my personal heroes: Josh Faiola, the minor-league baseball player who lived a season in an assisted living community, and Cindy Griffiths-Novak, the pioneering owner of the property that hosted Josh and has continued to host players every season. Putting together THE BIG EVENT was one of the most challenging – and fulfilling – endeavors in my 23-year career. It was also the culmination of an idea that started years ago. In 2008, I moved into several local retirement communities

to better understand the experiences of our readers. It was amazing. I learned so much from the residents, and they really enjoyed interacting with me and my family. I quickly became an advocate for intergenerational living. When I learned about Josh and Cindy, I thought I could use their story to inspire local providers. I was thrilled when they accepted my invitation to speak at THE BIG EVENT, but I never dreamed that their powerful story would have an impact before the event even started. While promoting THE BIG EVENT,

I connected with Chris Hummer, the general manager of The Washington Spirit, Washington, D.C.’s new professional women’s soccer team. He was struggling to find affordable housing for his athletes. I seized the opportunity and connected him with Ingleside at King Farm, a continuing care retirement community in Rockville, Md. The community enthusiastically agreed to host two players. Just a few weeks later, I had the pleasure of helping Olympic medal-winning soccer stars Diana Matheson and Robyn Gayle move into Ingleside. Now, it is my hope that bringing together sports stars and retirement living pioneers will inspire both professionals and consumers to demand

radical changes in the way we currently support elders in our society. We need to move beyond isolation to inclusion. At Guide to Retirement Living SourceBook, our team – our cause – has always been improved retirement living options. We are thrilled to have played a small role in uniting some fellow intergenerational fans. If you’d like to join our team or learn more about our intergenerational living efforts, please contact us at www.retirement-living.com or 1-800-394-9990.

Wishing you all the best this holiday season

Memories and Milestones By Christy Brudin

A

nniversaries are a time for reflection, a time to relive happy memories and anticipate future milestones. Martha Moore Wooldridge has celebrated quite a few anniversaries in her life, but she never thought she would be celebrating two very different milestones in such a short time period. The 78-year-old newlywed celebrated her second wedding anniversary in March. She is also one of the many residents who are preparing to observe the 25th anniversary of Ginger Cove, the CARF-CCACaccredited continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in Annapolis, Md., that they call home. A native of Pennsylvania, Martha attended college in Vermont before marrying and moving to the Philadelphia suburbs. An English major, Martha worked at several nearby college libraries before leaving work to raise her two children. When her children were older, Martha returned to the workforce and discovered a passion for desktop publishing. “I was working at Bryn Mawr Presbyterian Church, and I learned desktop publishing, and I really loved the computer; I love what the computer can do,” recalled Martha. Martha’s passion for computers continued after retirement, and she found a new outlet for it when she moved to Ginger Cove. She is now editor-in-chief of the residents’ monthly newsletter. In addition to editing and laying out the articles submitted by her fellow residents, Martha also contributes original articles about her peers. “The people here are just really interesting, so I try to interview them and share their stories,” she said. One of the many interesting stories at Ginger Cove belongs to Martha herself. A second-generation CCRC resident, she knew early that she wanted to plan ahead for retirement. Martha’s mother was living in a CCRC in Western Pennsylvania when she suffered a stroke. “We were 300 miles away and so relieved that we didn’t have to find nursing care when she got sick because the health center was part of her community. We decided then that we would move to a CCRC too,” Martha remembered. Martha may have decided to move to a retirement community early, but she found her ideal community quite unexpectedly. “We looked at lots of communities around Philadelphia,” Martha said. “They were O.K., but none of them seemed exactly right.” Martha and her husband Ken were visiting a nearby

In addition to writing and outdoor activities, Martha’s busy schedule also includes water aerobics.

family cottage when they decided on a whim to check out Ginger Cove. Martha recalled, “They invited us to visit. It didn’t matter that we only had shorts to wear.” After their initial visit, they returned to the community for dinner and quickly decided they had found their new home. Shortly thereafter, Martha and Ken made the move to a spacious apartment at Ginger Cove overlooking pretty Gingerville Creek. Unfortunately, they were just beginning to settle in when tragedy struck. “Six weeks after we moved in, my husband died,” Martha recalled. “We knew he was sick, but we thought it was going to work out, but it just didn’t.”

Moving in the Right Direction By Christy Brudin

M

errill and Judy Skolnik were starting to feel isolated in their home of 51 years. Judy was experiencing some health problems and finding it difficult to navigate their multilevel home. While Merrill enjoyed their family home, he found it hard to maintain the large yard and aging house. The Skolniks began looking at continuing care retirement communities (CCRC), and after a lengthy search, they selected Roland Park Place in Baltimore, Md. The two native Baltimoreans have a long history in the area and were relieved to find a place in the city and close to their children. After raising their four children, Judy launched a career as an advisor at Towson University. An electrical engineer, Merrill earned his degree from Johns Hopkins University and worked for nearly 40 years for the U.S. government. When he retired, he was the Superintendent of the Radar Division of the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, D.C., and a

widely renowned author and expert in radar technology. After living in the same home for decades, the Skolniks were overwhelmed by the thought of moving. Even after finding the right retirement community, they had no idea of where or how to start the transition. The staff at Roland Park Place suggested that the Skolniks enlist the help of Senior Transitions, Inc., a moving coordinating company owned and operated by Charna Kinneberg, RN, MBA. Senior Transitions assists seniors and their families with every aspect of the moving process from planning and downsizing to packing and unpacking. “We are not a one-size-fits-all company. Each client is unique,” Charna explained. “Our services are tailored to relieve the stress of moving, and our first goal is to determine the exact needs of the client.” When Charna started helping the Skolniks, relocating began to seem manageable. “She just took the whole burden off; she was in charge,” recalled Judy. “Thank goodness for Charna.”

Merrill and Judy Skolnik were overwhelmed by the thought of moving until they enlisted the help of a moving coordinator.

Charna helped Judy and Merrill make key decisions about what to take with them and what to leave behind. “She’s very decisive,” Judy recalled of Charna. “She knows what should be done and just does it.” She also enlisted help to do the packing and unpacking, so the couple did not have to worry about the — Judy Skolnik on physical tasks of the move. the services of Senior “They were just wonderTransitions, Inc. ful,” Judy said of Senior Transitions. “They pack you up, and they bring you here, and they unpack you. They even make up your bed, and you’re ready to begin your new life.” In addition to being efficient and professional, Charna and her staff also formed a personal relationship with the Skolniks. It was almost a year after they moved that Judy recalled seeing some of Senior Transitions’ staff members in the lobby of Roland Park Place. “A new resident was moving in upstairs with Charna’s help. I recognized the movers, and, to my surprise, they greeted me by name. They remembered everything about us. I couldn’t believe it,” she said. Since moving, the Skolniks have enjoyed a much-improved lifestyle. Merrill stopped driving and Judy only drives during the day, so the couple rarely ventured out in the evenings while living in their house. Now, they take the community bus to the opera, theater, concerts and dinners. “There’s something to do here all the time,” Judy said. “I try to take advantage of everything, and it’s been very stimulating.” Finding a community close to home and the professionals to help them make the move has helped the Skolniks transition to their ideal retirement. From living an isolated life in their increasingly burdensome house to enjoying activities and events with new friends and neighbors, the Skolniks have certainly made a move in the right direction.

“They pack you up, and they bring you here, and they unpack you. They even make up your bed, and you’re ready to begin your new life.”

Instead of worrying about home maintenance or feeling isolated, the Skolniks now enjoy a wide range of activities with new friends and neighbors.

HOW TO

prepare to move

roll up your sleeves, or let a professional help The organizational and physical challenges of moving can often be overwhelming, but there are professionals and useful tips that can ease the transition for everyone involved. Seeking Professional Help Senior move managers are professionals who specialize in assisting older adults and their families with the emotional and physical aspects of relocation. They often have backgrounds in gerontology, social work, health care, nursing and psychology. Because they focus exclusively on the move process, move managers have significant expertise in resources and approaches that save money, reduce stress and produce quality results to meet the client’s personalized needs.

Moving on Your Own Once you have made the decision as to where you are moving, you will have a much easier time figuring out what items to keep or get rid of. Having a floor plan and the important measurements will help in figuring out which large items you will be able to bring. Professional organizers say it is best to have at least six months to plan a move, but whatever your timetable, you should get a calendar solely for planning your strategy. You might mark off “DDay” (for decision made) and “M-Day” (for moving), then mark (in pencil!) the day the necessary steps will be made. Decide on tentative dates for any sales you might have and make deadlines for other necessary tasks. Assign various re-

sponsibilities to family members. When estimating the time needed for big jobs, take a general tip from freelancers and independent contractors: figure out the time you think you will need, and then multiply it by at least two! Allow yourself enough time to ensure you have brought everything you want before the contents of your previous home are taken away. You do not want to regret giving away too much too soon, or to have important things lost in the shuffle. Some excerpts from this article used from Moving On: A Practical Guide to Downsizing the Family Home by Linda Hetzer and Janet Hulstrand (Stewart, Tabori & Chang).

HOW TO

utilize real estate transactions

transforming the challenges of selling and buying into choices Preparing the family home for sale, downsizing, packing, moving and setting up a new house are all physically and mentally arduous tasks. Fortunately, there are innovative real estate companies who offer customized services to help individuals with every aspect of moving and downsizing. Step One: Preparing to sell or buy It is important that homeowners select a real estate agent who can meet their distinctive needs. The emergence of specialized real estate designations has made the process of choosing an agent easier. Senior Real Estate Specialists (SRES) are licensed Realtors who have received the SRES designation through the national Senior Advantage Real Estate Council. Senior Housing Specialist (SHS) Realtors have also met specific guidelines outlined by the Real Estate Certification Program (RECP). Both of these designations signal to consumers that agents have completed specialized training courses and are qualified to meet the

unique needs of their clients throughout the home buying and/or selling process. After finding a qualified agent, homeowners are ready to begin the process of preparing to sell their home. A qualified agent’s comprehensive assessment of the condition and marketability of the home can decrease selling time and increase selling price. Specialized agents can also help clients prioritize repairs and locate qualified professionals to complete such projects. Utilizing the help of professionals to prepare for a sale can ultimately result in a selling price that reflects the top market value for the home. Step Two: Packing and sorting Items should be sorted into distinct categories: keep/move, give to family, donate to charity, and throw away. The initial list of items to keep will likely be larger than the new space can accommodate. Moving professionals, however, can offer advice by taking into account their client’s personal

tastes, the financial and sentimental value of possessions, and the new floor plan. Step Three: Moving For many, moving day is simple and rewarding due to comprehensive, customized real estate services provided prior to the sale of the house. On moving day, real estate professionals can recommend trusted companies to help with the physical aspects of moving, while providing assistance with the job of unpacking and setting up the new home. Challenges become choices As the challenges of moving fade due to increasingly helpful professionals, people are left with nothing but choices—where to move, when to move, what to take and how to decorate the new home. Individuals considering a move are no longer faced with the difficult questions of how to market their homes and move their belongings, as there is help available every step of the way.

obtain legal advice

elder law attorneys cater to your legal needs

S

ince living decisions are becoming increasingly complex, many people find themselves searching for someone who can cater to their specific legal needs. Making sure that you have the right professional for the job at hand is one of the most important tasks in getting any job done the right way. When it comes to your legal needs, there’s no difference. Finding the right attorney may take some research and time, but in the end, it’s always better to have done your due diligence. What is an Elder Law Attorney? An elder law attorney is an individual who specializes in areas of the law that are particularly relevant to senior citizens and their family members. These attorneys generally focus their practices in a few of the following areas: estate planning, long-term care planning, social security, public and private pensions, Medicare, Medicaid, Medigap insurance, long-term care insurance, age discrimination, durable powers of attorney, living wills, conservatorship and guardianship, or abuse. Elder law attorneys can offer an especially sensitive ear concerning the sometimes difficult decisions involved in one’s later years. While dispensing legal advice, they are also able to refer

issue? Is it likely that you will have to go to court? Are there non-legal resources available to help you? Can you resolve this difficulty on your own or with the help of a family member? To pick the right attorney and save yourself time and money, you must know your needs. If you aren’t familiar with your own situation, it can be difficult to explain it to someone else. Know your own financial limitations and the financial benefits of engaging the services of a specific attorney. In other words, only buy what you need and what you can afford. If you only want a will that names your spouse as your sole beneficiary and there are no other needs, you probably don’t need an expensive package. Be a smart consumer. Elder law attorneys lend their expertise on estate planning, pensions, long-term care planning, age discrimination and wills.

Who Pays For It? In most cases, you pay for the services of these attorneys. However, there clients to other professional and/or non- are attorneys who will occasionally take legal resources that are available to help on pro-bono cases or will work on a contingency fee.

HOW TO

discuss billing methods

understanding the fees and expenses involved Attorneys may bill weekly, monthly or upon completion of work. Discuss how your attorney charges and how often he/she bills at your initial meeting. It is very important that you understand and feel comfortable in this area. Some attorneys charge by the hour 6/3/05 12:15 PM Page 1 with different hourly rates for work performed by attorneys, paralegals and secretaries. If this is the case, find out what the rates are. Other attorneys charge a flat fee for all or part of the services, which is not unusual if you are having documents prepared. Your attorney might use Some attorneys charge by the hour with a combination of these methods. different hourly rates for work performed by In addition to fees, most attorneys attorneys, paralegals and secretaries. will charge you out-of-pocket expenses which can include charges for copies, calls and other such costs.

(money paid before the attorney starts working on your case). Usually placed in a trust account, the attorney pays himself or herself out of that account each time you are billed. Expenses may be paid directly from the trust account. The size of the retainer may range from a small percentage of the estimated cost to the full amount. Ask that your arrangement with an attorney be put in writing either in a letter or formal contract that states the attorney’s services and what the fee and expense arrangement will be. Even if the agreement is oral, you are responsible for all charges for work done by the attorney and his/her staff.

What are Advance Directives? These legal documents help clarify your health care desires to family members and medical professionals when you are unable to communicate them due to a serious illness or injury. In some states, there are statutory forms that individuals can print, fill out and sign

before witnesses. In other states, both statutory forms and customized advance directive documents are allowed. It is important for you to appoint a trusted agent to speak for you when you are unable to speak for yourself with respect to medical decisions. Once a trusted agent is appointed, it is vital that you discuss your desires with your agent, your loved ones and your doctor.

how to find an elder law attorney The most effective way to locate a qualified attorney is through a recommendation from a family member, friend, or an attorney you have consulted before and trust. The AARP (www.aarp.org/legalsolutions) and the state bar association (www.hg.org) offer impartial attorney recommendations. The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (www.naela.org), a professional association of attorneys dedicated to improving the quality of legal services provided

to the elderly, and the National Elder Law Foundation (www.nelf.org), a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and improvement of the professional competence of lawyers in this particular area, can both offer advice for finding a qualified elder law attorney. A referral from family or friends can be a good resource so long as you ask more than how they liked the person. The attorney may have been a likeable person, but

you should be more interested in how the case turned out. Once you have found an attorney that you are considering hiring, carefully and fully explain your legal problem so the attorney can provide an accurate estimate of the time that will be necessary to solve your problem. Finally, be sure that you are clear on the specific costs. For more information visit www.naela.org or www.nelf.org.

HOW TO

prepare legal documents

advance directives that put your affairs in order Advance directives (living wills, powers of attorneys, and health care proxies) are legal documents that express an individual’s wishes with regard to medical decisions. They are intended to provide direction to a designated “agent” to speak on behalf of a person who is unable to speak for himself due to a physical or cognitive injury.

1. Who will serve as your Agent for Health Care or as the alternate? 2. Are there certain medical treatments or pain control measures you want or don’t want? 3. Do you wish to take or refuse any medication that may reduce or eliminate the ability to communicate with others? 4. Do you have any particular directions regarding specific health care Things to Consider facilities, religious preferences, dispoThe National Academy of Elder Law sition of your body, donation of body Attorneys (NAELA) advises consumers parts for transplant or research, etc.? to consider five key items. 5. What directions will you provide

related to end-of-life decisions specifically regarding: n if you can no longer eat, drink or breathe on your own; n if you cannot function independent of machines; n if you are confined to bed with no mobility; n if you have little cognitive ability.

Insur ance

supplementing your medicare coverage By Susan Morisato

M n

edicare is a vital part of the health insurance portfolio for millions of Americans, including baby boomers who are aging into the Medicare program at the rate of 10,000 a day. As boomers review their options for how they can receive their Medicare coverage, they’ll discover that they’ll need to find ways to pay for the out-of-pocket costs that Original Medicare (Parts A and B) doesn’t cover, such as deductibles, copays and coinsurance. Medicare supplement insurance can help boomers and other beneficiaries limit and more accurately predict their out-ofpocket costs, giving them peace of mind in the event of an unexpected medical issue. Boomers who decide that a Medicare supplement is right for them should consider several factors when deciding which plan to choose.

Selecting a Medicare Supplement Plan First, identify your needs, and then select a Medicare supplement plan that will best meet them. In most states, Medicare enrollees may select from any one of 10 standardized Medicare supplement plans approved for sale within their state of residence. If you want to supplement Medicare’s prescription drug benefits, you’ll need to consider enrolling in a Part D plan.

Choosing a Medicare Supplement Insurance Provider It is important to research plan providers in your state to find one that is financially sound and also offers competitive rates, top-notch service, and the plan that fits your budget and needs. Although insurance companies are required to offer standardized Medicare supplement plans and benefits, the rates and value-added services will vary, sometimes significantly. In general, your age when applying for a plan will be used to determine your rate, so find out if the company is using a flat or community rating, entry-age rating or attained-age rating. A flat rating means a company charges everyone the same rate for a particular plan. The flat rate will not increase solely because you grow older. An entry-age rating offers different rates for a plan based on your age at the time of enrollment. Similar to flat ratings, the rate will not increase simply because you grow older. An attained-age rating means your plan’s monthly rate will increase each year as you age, so it’s important to ask the company about their rate increase history for the plan you are considering. Lastly, see what “extras” may be offered to you by the provider if you enroll in their plan. While companies cannot alter the federally mandated benefits of Medicare supplement plans, they can offer you additional value-added features, such as free or discounted access to certain health and well-being services.

Your Health Status You’ll also want to consider the potential difficulty of enrolling in the plan you want. Some Medicare supplement carriers underwrite all of their plans, while others underwrite only a select few. If a plan is underwritten, the status of your health at the time of enrollment is used to determine your eligibility for the plan and may also affect your rate. The best time to purchase a Medicare supplement plan is during your open enrollment period, which is the six-month period beginning on the first day of the month in which you are both age 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B. If you apply for a Medicare supplement plan during this window, your acceptance is guaranteed into the plan of your choice, regardless of your health status. If you are enrolled or planning to enroll in both Medicare Parts A and B when you turn 65, you can apply for a Medicare supplement policy up to three months prior to your 65th birthday. For more information about Medicare supplement insurance, contact your state’s insurance department or visit MedicareMadeClear.com. You can also visit Medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). TTY users can call 1-877-486-2048. Susan Morisato is president of UnitedHealthcare Medicare & Retirement Insurance Solutions.

Hearing Loss

understand hearing loss how the ear functions and the forms of hearing loss Hearing is one of our most basic senses. It is vital to communication. It helps us to remain in contact with family and friends via the telephone and in-person conversations. Hearing also offers protection from dangerous situations, allowing us to heed a siren or respond to a verbal warning. Individuals with hearing loss often believe that hearing aids cannot help their situation because of misinformation and misconceptions about the devices, leading them to think their situation is hopeless, but this could not be further from the truth! The human ear is comprised of three distinct parts: the outer ear; the middle ear, which contains the eardrum and three tiny bones that conduct sound; and the cochlea or inner ear. Hearing is a highly complex process that involves the middle ear and the cochlea, as well as the auditory nerve and the brain. When

sound waves enter the outer ear, they travel through the ear canal and strike the eardrum. The vibrations of the eardrum sends the waves through the cochlea, where thousands of tiny sensory cells generate electrical impulses. These impulses send sound messages up the auditory nerve to the brain, which interprets them as sound. Every case of hearing loss is unique, but all hearing problems can be categorized as either conductive hearing loss or sensorineural hearing loss. Conductive hearing loss affects the outer or middle ear and is often caused by a buildup of wax or fluid, a punctuated eardrum, or abnormal bone growth. This type of loss can be corrected through medical treatment or by surgical procedure. Sensorineural hearing loss accounts for more than 90 percent of all hearing losses and is characterized by the deterioration of

the delicate sensory cells in the cochlea. The aging process, prolonged exposure to loud noises, infections, head injuries, and certain medications can all cause this type of hearing loss. There is no cure for sensorineural hearing loss, but hearing aids are generally effective in helping individuals to experience improved hearing. The common misconception that “nerve deafness” or sensorineural hearing loss cannot be treated with hearing aids is simply not true given the advanced technology of today’s hearing aids. A hearing aid works as a personal amplification system. When sound enters the hearing aid through a microphone, a tiny amplifier makes the sound louder. The amplified sound travels through the ear canal and causes increased stimulation in the middle ear and the cochlea. This increased stimulation makes sounds clearer and easier to understand.

HOW TO

get help managing money

stop watching those statements and bills pile up

O

lder adults frequently become overwhelmed with the amount of medical statements and other mail they accumulate in a short time. Insurance and medical bills are often confusing — or even contradictory. Daily Money Managers (DMMs) can help manage these concerns by monitoring their client’s accounts and outstanding bills, while also protecting against identity theft. What is Daily Money Management? Daily Money Management is a service that addresses an issue facing many senior citizens: handling paperwork that seems to expand endlessly. Daily Money Managers provide personal financial assistance to seniors, usually in the client’s home, while simultaneously safeguarding the valuable identity they’ve worked a lifetime to establish. What services does a Daily Money Manager offer? They offer an array of services, which

include balancing checkbooks, writing checks to pay bills, and keeping accurate records of all checks written and all deposits made. This kind of record keeping provides peace of mind for the client and, in some cases, for their family. DMM services also provide value in monitoring medical bills, ensuring that Medicare and other health insurance providers have paid their share before the client pays any balance due. Another important component of one’s financial health is identity protection. Several firms offer identity theft protection, fraud protection and other security-related services for seniors. “Seniors have a lot to lose, and often don’t have the background or tools to recognize or spot fraudulent activity quickly enough,” said David Poulos, Chief Marketing Officer of Senior Guardian Services based in Baltimore. “We can give seniors peace of mind by paying their routine invoices for them, reviewing bank statements, reviewing marketing offers and other incoming mail, and protecting them from being exploited.” Additionally, DMMs can help with in-

come tax preparation and in documenting medical and charitable contributions that often mean the client will pay lower taxes each year. How do I find a Daily Money Manager? Because finances are a highly personal matter, hiring a DMM is an important and individual decision. Referrals from a friend or colleague are a good place to start. If necessary, contact your local Area Agency on Aging for suggestions. The American Association of Daily Money Managers’ website (www.aadmm.com) can also provide valuable information that will help you find a reliable DMM. Once you have found a DMM you are interested in hiring, it is a good idea to ask about their experience and qualifications. It is especially important to know whether your DMM is bonded and insured. You also want to determine how the DMM you plan to hire bills for their work. Hourly fees vary by locale, but in this area, the average range is $40.00 to $80.00 per hour.

HOW TO

find care management

those familiar with the industry can help you navigate it

W

ith the complex maze of resources available today, many families are turning to Geriatric Care Managers (GCM) for help with decisions that are appropriate for their lifestyle and needs. With training in social work, nursing, counseling, and/or gerontology, GCMs offer customized consultations and administer a “care plan.” Though it outlines the necessary steps required to obtain the appropriate type of care for the client, this plan is not binding and is rather considered a recommendation from an informed expert. Who Needs a GCM? Families who are confused about how to care for a parent or loved one are primary candidates for geriatric care managers. The services of a GCM can enable you to make decisions that are appropriate without causing undo stress. Instead of waiting for a crisis situation, you may want to turn to a GCM earlier, so that there are more options available. How Much Will It Cost? As fees for a GCM range, you should check with your Medicare office to see if you are eligible for subsidies. The average time required by a client is four hours. After spending a couple of hours completing

a comprehensive evaluation, the GCM spends a few more hours researching and discussing available options with the client and their family, helping them to implement the care plan. What Can a GCM Do for Me? COMPREHENSIVE ASSESSMENT. Utilizing their professional backgrounds and experience, care managers are able to perform an unbiased evaluation of the client’s mental, physical, social, financial and legal functioning. RECOMMENDATIONS. After determining what services would be helpful for the well-being of the individual, the GCM can recommend providers who will best meet the family’s needs. Familiar with industry standards, they routinely make recommendations for all levels of care. COUNSELING. The counseling that GCMs can provide helps clients and their families handle the emotional stress involved with these decisions. They provide the family with information about the illness or challenge that the client faces and the available resources. MEDIATION. GCMs can also negotiate family dynamics, helping to sort out all of the various concerns that have resulted from the challenge of caring for a loved one. FOLLOW-UP VISITS. GCMs are generally involved in the implementation of the care plan. This typically includes follow-up visits to the individual’s home or facility a

couple of times a week shortly after implementation and quarterly thereafter. Some clients are visited once a week for the duration of their services. Follow-up visits also allow the GCM to determine whether the current care services are working. How do I Choose a GCM? When considering a GCM, be sure to take into account their professional standing, as well as their personality and how comfortable they make their clients. Although there is no official licensure process for care managers, the National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers has established standards of quality and a Code of Ethics; these standards as well as referrals for GCMs can be accessed through www.caremanager.org.

clearly knew her way around the medical field,” Betsy said. “She recommended the home care agency we are still using, made suggestions on doctors, and helped troubleshoot any problems we had along the way.” Since the Palmers have settled into their daughter’s home, Jill has continued to help the family work through various challenges. She visits monthly to perform an assessment and review their care plans. In addition to her monthly visits, Jill is always available for emergency consultations. “She is there whenever anything comes up,” Betsy explained. “She also always stops by whenever I am out of town to make sure everything is going well. That really provides peace of mind for me.” As the primary caregiver for her parents, Betsy is extremely grateful to have the assistance and expertise of Rosner Healthcare Navigation at her disposal. She concluded, “Jill’s always there if I need her; all I have to do is pick up the phone.”

hen Betsy Kremer went to visit her parents, Howie and Billie Palmer, in their assisted living community in upstate New York, she quickly realized that her father was not flourishing in the new environment. After initially moving into an independent living apartment, the Palmers were just settling in when Billie’s increasing healthcare needs forced them to move to the assisted living unit of the community. The assisted living community provided the care that Billie needed, but Howie, who was still independent, found the social opportunities lacking. Betsy and her husband invited her parents to come and live with them in their home in Maryland. To her surprise, her father not only accepted their offer but also was ready to move the following day. “When I asked when he wanted to move, he said tomorrow, and I knew I

edical supplies and equipment fall into two major categories. Medical supplies generally refers to products that are used to make patients more comfortable and need to be replenished on a regular basis. Durable medical equipment includes items that are long-lasting and are generally one-time purchases. Medical Supplies Medical supply products help individuals cope with and manage the symptoms of illness or old age. Products include specially adapted socks and stockings, skin care products and other helpful items. Daily living aids are also available to help individuals who need assistance dressing or taking medication. Home health monitors and specialized in-home tests let patients track everything from blood pressure to heart rate. Durable Medical Equipment Durable medical equipment includes items that help elderly or disabled individuals maintain mobility and/or

receive necessary care in the comfort of their homes. Durable medical equipment products can be broken into two major categories: mobility products and care assistance products. Mobility products include a wide range of highly advanced equipment to help individuals get around. Scooters are available in a range of styles to meet individualized needs. Many individuals find outdoor mobility challenging and are searching for a personal mobility vehicle that can help them continue to participate in activities. Lift chairs are another popular mobility product that provide assistance with moving from a sitting to a standing position. Stair lifts allow individuals to move from one level of their home to another with ease, eliminating the dangerous task of climbing and descending stairs. A wide array of wheelchairs, walkers, and canes are also available to help those with mobility assistance needs. Care assistance products include hospital-style beds, equipment to help with transferring and specially formulated mattresses. All of these products are es-

pecially important for individuals who wish to remain in the home environment. Paying for Supplies & Equipment Medicare helps pay the costs for durable medical equipment. According to Medicare, to be covered “items must be reusable, such as walkers, wheelchairs, or hospital beds.” Durable medical equipment for home health services is paid for under both Medicare Part B and Part A. Medicare coverage varies, and some equipment must be rented. Coverage by private insurance for durable medical equipment will vary greatly depending on the company and the policy. Coverage for medical supplies by both Medicare and private insurance will depend on the products required and doctors’ recommendations. Finding a Provider Individuals should be comfortable with the professionalism and reliability of the company. Request specific information about costs and product delivery time frames. Consumers should also be aware of any warranties.

continuing education providing learning environments for senior-serving professionals

T

here is no question that the population of Baby Boomers and their aging loved ones is rapidly increasing. Therefore, understanding the needs of these groups and the issues affecting them has never been more important. What some may not realize, however, is that various educational institutions have implemented programs designed for those interested in or currently serving seniors and their families. Johns Hopkins University (JHU) is one such school reaching out to professionals with its Odyssey Certificate on Aging. The core and elective courses have been constructed with a broad range of disciplines in mind and are especially relevant to caregivers, clergy, financial planners, lawyers, nurses, social workers, volunteers and work/life planners. However, admission to individual courses is open to any interested adult. Students receive the Certificate on Aging upon completing four required courses, four electives and a capstone project that allows them to delve into a topic of their choice with the supervision of a faculty adviser. Examples of

required courses include ‘Public and Private Programs for the Elderly’ and ‘Biological Aspects of Aging,’ while electives vary with ‘Aging, Nutrition and Fitness;’ ‘Counseling, Case Management and Older Adults;’ and ‘Death, Grief and End-ofLife Planning.’ Designed to address the ethical, financial, legal, medical and psychological issues facing the fastest growing population in the U.S., Odyssey and similar programs allow professionals to better serve the seniors they care for on a daily basis. Like JHU, McDaniel College features programs in Gerontology through The Center for the Study of Aging (CSA). Here, required courses and electives from 12 departments and programs are offered including social work, communication, exercise science and physical education, biology and religion. The Erickson School of Aging Studies is another program that strives to educate leaders with the goal of improving society for older adults. Focusing on Aging, Management and Policy, the program enables students to immerse themselves in several disciplines using an active learning environment.

Various educational institutions have implemented programs designed for those interested in or currently serving seniors and their families.

The Odyssey Certificate on Aging and similar programs are helping professionals improve the lives of older adults one class at a time. Through active learning environments, professionals in the field are gaining a greater understanding of the decisions facing today’s Boomers, ultimately helping them to enhance options for this growing group.

The Certificate on Aging at Johns Hopkins University

The Johns Hopkins Certificate on Aging is designed to meet the needs of those who serve aging adults and their families. Instructors teach a well-rounded curriculum suited for financial planners, nurses, lawyers, social workers, clergy, caregivers, volunteers, work/life planners and more.

HOW TO

stay surrounded with activity

active adult communities keep residents moving Active Adult communities, also known as leisure communities, are populated with adults who have come to live there by choice as soon as they hit the requisite age – usually around 55. Most active adult communities are not equipped to provide increased care or health-related services. However, several are part of a larger Continuing Care Retirement Community, where residents can count on extended care if they develop health problems. Ideal for retirees, but not limited to those who have stopped working, active

adult communities are full of options and most of the costs are included in the living fees. Homes are constructed of low-maintenance building materials and feature virtually maintenance-free yards, so residents can enjoy the tennis courts, swimming pools, hiking trails, biking paths and fitness centers that are generally available within these communities. When researching this option, start by requesting information packets from prospective communities. Once you have narrowed down your options, schedule visits to each. While you are there, take

thorough notes and make a list of pros and cons. Ask if you can dine with residents, talk with staff and read the residents’ handbook during your visit. When you meet with the management or resident relations director, make sure to assess the management’s philosophy and its relationship with residents. And never underestimate the power of the good old-fashioned hunch. Prioritize your own needs and feelings and give yourself plenty of time to make a decision. This is your new home and a place you will enjoy for decades.

HOW TO

receive care for life

continuing care communities offer support for changing health needs Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) offer long-term contracts that guarantee lifelong shelter and access to specified health care services. A staff of medical professionals is on hand to provide different levels of care, from independent living to assisted living and nursing care. A member can move up or down this continuum of care for the rest of their life. Most CCRCs establish requirements for incoming residents based on age, financial assets, income level and physical health. Residents are typically expected to move in while they are still independent to get to know the community. In return for guaranteed lifelong shelter, amenities and health care, residents usually pay a lump-sum entrance fee and regular monthly payments. There are three basic

types of CCRC contracts. An extensive contract covers shelter, residential services, and amenities, plus unlimited long-term nursing care without an increase in monthly payments (except for increases related to operating costs and inflation adjustments). An extensive contract spreads the risk of catastrophic health care costs among all residents, so that no single person faces financial ruin. Entrance fees and monthly costs under this contract are typically higher than those under modified or fee-for-service contracts. A modified continuing care contract covers shelter, residential services and amenities, plus a specified amount of nursing care. After the specified amount has been received, the resident can receive care

at daily or monthly nursing care rates. A fee-for-service continuing care contract covers shelter, residential services and amenities. While emergency and shortterm nursing care is usually included in the contract, access to long-term nursing care is guaranteed only at daily rates. Entrance and monthly fees are lower because residents are responsible for all longterm nursing and health care costs. Most CCRCs provide a variety of residential services that may be covered by monthly fees or be available at extra cost, depending on the contract. Visit the CCRCs you are considering with a trusted family member. Immerse yourself as much as possible in the daily life and assess the management’s philosophy and its relationship with residents.

HOW TO

understand entrance fees

knowing the options when paying for ccrcs Most CCRCs require payment of a one-time fee, usually called the entrance fee, before moving to the community. The entrance fee amount often depends on the level of care at the time of entry, type of housing chosen (with larger units requiring a larger fee) and agreement type. The entrance fee allows the CCRC to offer lower monthly fees and provide for the future needs of residents. State regulations can impact the terms of the entrance fee and in some states, refunds are called rebates. Entrance fees are typically structured in one of three ways: Declining scale refunds, also known as amortizing entrance fees, specify a period of time in which the entrance fee will be refundable to the resident on a declining basis. For example, if an entrance fee under this arrangement de-

clines at the rate of 1 percent each month, after 6 months 94 percent of the entrance fee is refundable. Partially refundable entrance fees guarantee a specific percentage of the refund that will be returned within a certain period of time regardless of the term of residency. For example, 50 percent of the entrance fee may be refundable upon termination of the contract or to the estate upon the resident’s death. Full refunds offer just that, a full refund of the entrance fee. A fixed charge may be deducted before the refund is made, and the agreement generally states how long the refund is valid and under what conditions a refund is due. Entrance fees that offer full refunds are typically more expensive than those without refunds or those that are par-

The entrance fee amount often depends on the level of care at the time of entry, type of housing chosen and agreement type.

HOW TO

decide when to retire

retiring during economic booms could cause financial hardships A University of Missouri financial expert has found that many Americans choose to retire when the economic markets are peaking, an action that can, ironically, cause major problems for the long-term financial stability of retirees. “Potential retirees often will first meet their targeted retirement savings goals during an up market and will be tempted to retire at that point,” said Rui Yao, an assistant professor of personal financial planning in the College of Human Environmental Sciences at MU. “The problem with this strategy is that the economy runs in cycles, meaning that after a peak, the market will take a downturn. People who have retired shortly before an economic downturn run a serious risk of losing a significant portion of their re-

tirement savings, which will shorten the longevity of their retirement income.” Yao recommends that potential retirees hold off on retiring immediately upon reaching their target savings goals, particularly during an economic boom. She says that potential retirees should retire during an economic downturn, as long as they have saved enough to be comfortable. In the study, which was published in the Journal of Personal Finance and funded by a grant from Prudential Insurance Company of America, Yao examined data from the Health and Retirement Study, which is a national biannual survey conducted by the University of Michigan. Yao found that the probability that retirement-eligible Americans chose to retire increased as the number of con-

secutive up market years increased. Yao also found that working Americans with a retired spouse were more likely to retire than all other household types, including those with a working spouse and those without a spouse. Yao says this trend could also create potential financial problems. “If both spouses decide to retire close to the end of an up market, the household would have little to no cushion should their retirement portfolios be affected by an economic downturn,” Yao said. Ultimately, Yao believes these findings show the need for retirement planners, employers, and financial educators and practitioners to help pre-retirees better understand the challenges they face to reduce the likelihood of financial problems after retirement.

tips for grandparents imparting wisdom and experience

T

here are 70 million grandparents in the U.S., more than ever before. According to the recent study Grandparents Investing in Grandchildren: The MetLife Study on How Grandparents Share Their Time, Values, and Money, , grandparents are a vital source of financial support for American families and are in the enviable position of being sought after for wisdom and advice, even from teenagers. How can grandparents make the best of their relationships with their grandchildren and have the most impact possible? Based on its study, the MetLife Mature Market Institute is offering a tip sheet, Grandparents Investing in Grandchildren: Actions Speak Louder Than Words,

produced with Generations United. The guide provides grandparents with advice on how they can be influential in a positive way on topics including values, beliefs, civic engagement, heritage and even cooking. It reports that grandparents can also be an important influence on finances through both words and example. “Grandparents continue to be a positive influence on their grandchildren. Even though some are long distance and families seem to have less leisure time than in the past, it’s more critical than ever for grandparents to pass on life lessons, family history and positive values, through strong relationships with their grandchildren,” said Sandra Timmermann, Ed.D., director of the MetLife Mature Market Institute. “This guide has important informa-

tion to help make it easier for grandparents to facilitate interaction, finding common ground and mutual interest between their grandchildren and themselves,” said Donna Butts, executive director of Generations United. “From how to initiate meaningful conversation to creating memories and even how to be generous without sacrificing one’s own financial security, we have many ideas on how to make the best of these special relationships.” According to the MetLife tip sheet, grandparents should consider the following: 1. Share values and beliefs. Areas that resonate the most with grandchildren are honesty and good behavior, education, family history, self-sufficiency, and good health habits.

The guide suggests taking the time to create family history through an audiovisual message, a family tree, photos and/or by preparing meals together, which creates the perfect setting for conversations about family recipes. 3. Invest in your grandchildren’s financial security. Increasingly, grandparents are helping to support their grandchildren, especially through assistance with tuition. Grandparents can be particularly helpful by also helping grandchildren to acquire financial literacy skills. They help foster early saving habits and encourage smart spending and investing.

middle class millionaires specialized retirement planning advice As Lewis Schiff and Russ Allen Prince chronicle in The Middle-Class Millionaire: The Rise of the New Rich and How They are Changing America, during the past 20 years, a portion of America’s middle class has been pulling away from their neighbors by amassing significant wealth. Through disciplined saving, shrewd investing or timely inheritance – or a combination of these – an increasing number of individuals and families throughout the Washington, D.C., metro area have accumulated $1,000,000 or more in investable assets. This includes doctors, attorneys and even thrifty schoolteachers who have $1 million to $2 million in net worth. Most of these Middle Class Millionaires are making $150,000 to $300,000 a year. Many are 50 to 70 years of age.

You might be one of them. If so, it is safe to say that you are aiming to have a balance during your retirement years that enables you to continue enjoying a multifaceted life. Whether or not you consider yourself a millionaire, your finances are significant and require informed decisions to preserve and strengthen what you have worked so hard to achieve. For Middle-Class Millionaires, today’s market is bursting with different investment opportunities and management styles, as well as a copious amount of retirement and estate planning tools and techniques. Sorting through the options to discern the best choices for your situation can be overwhelming. If you are a Middle Class Millionaire, here are some important things to know about retirement planning.

Retiring for the Long Haul If you are part of the generation born between 1946 and 1964 – the “Baby Boom” generation – then increased longevity is by far the most significant new retirement reality you have to deal with. In our grandparent’s generation, life expectancy was in the 70s. Now, for a married couple age 65, there is a 50 percent chance that one of you will live past your 90th birthday. This stretches your time horizon for thinking about when to retire. With increasing longevity, you not only need to save for retirement but also be prepared to save in retirement for the decades ahead. This will involve more than budgeting and frugality. You will need to invest with growth and tax efficiency in mind, year after year, because Continued on page 52

the purchasing power of your million dollar portfolio may have to last for 25 years or more. In developing a retirement investment strategy, you need to break things down into short-, intermediate- and long-term segments. In the short term, one to three years out, you need highly secure investments with predictable return on principal. Short-term investment products that are highly secure with predictable returns include money market funds, CDs and U.S. Treasury bills. The intermediate investment term is four to 10 years. In this segment, you are looking for higher yield by focusing on high-quality corporate bonds backed by companies such as IBM, Procter & Gamble and AT&T. While planning for ten years and beyond, your number one challenge is maintaining long term purchasing power. Investment products that are appropriate for this segment are common stock, mutual

boomers are retiring Despite the popular belief that Baby Boomers will continue to work well past the traditional retirement age of 65, those born in 1946 are retiring in droves, according to Transitioning into Retirement: The MetLife Study of Baby Boomers at 65. This study is a follow–up to the 2008 MetLife Mature Market Institute study, Boomer Bookends: Insights into the Oldest and Youngest Boomers (released in 2009), which looked at the same segment of Boomers at age 62 and includes 450 of the same interview subjects from the original study. The study reports that 59 percent of the first Boomers to turn 65 are at least partially retired – 45 percent are completely retired and 14 percent are retired, but working part-time.

Research shows that as many as 5 million older adults are victims of elder abuse each year and financial exploitation costs seniors an estimated $3 billion annually. As part of its 10th Annual Home for the Holidays campaign, the Eldercare Locator, a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging that is administered by the National Association of Area Agencies on Aging (n4a), is encouraging older adults, caregivers and their families to use their time together this holiday season to discuss and get informed about strategies to prevent financial exploitation.

Help for Veter ans

HOW TO

access benefits for veterans

help is available for service members

I

ndividuals who have served their country in the armed forces are eligible for a wide array of benefits through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These benefits include health care services ranging from routine screenings and check-ups to long-term care. Additional benefits are also available for aging Veterans.

Qualification and Enrollment Any individual who served in the active military, naval or air service and was discharged under any condition other than dishonorable may qualify for VA health care benefits. Members of the Reserves or National Guard who were called to active duty, other than for training, and completed the full duty requirement may also be eligible for health care. Veterans who enlisted after September 7, 1980, must have served 24 continuous months or the full period for which they were called. However, there are exceptions to the minimum duty requirements, including early discharge for disability and other special circumstances. All Veterans are encouraged to enroll with the VA to determine their eligibility for benefits. Only by enrolling in the VA health care system can Veterans guarantee that comprehensive services will be available when and where they are needed. The VA’s enrollment system is based on priority groups. Congress determines the VA’s funding annually, which impacts the number of Veterans who can be enrolled in the health care program. The VA classifies Veterans into priority groups to ensure that limited funds are provided to higher priority Veterans first. Priority groups range from 1-8, with 1 being the highest priority. Group 1 includes Veterans who are more than 50 percent disabled, while Group 8 is made up of individuals who are not rated as disabled and who have incomes above the VA national threshold. Individuals in lower priority groups often have to pay copays for care and services. 60

retirement-living.com

1-800-394-9990

Once a Veteran’s eligibility is verified, they will be assigned a priority group. If an individual is eligible for more than one priority group, the VA will place them in the highest group for which they are eligible. Long-Term Care Benefits In addition to preventative, health maintenance and emergency care, VA benefits may also provide for long-term care in some instances. Long-term care benefits include assistance that is provided for an extended period of time to help Veterans with everyday tasks and/or provide support for managing an ongoing illness. Long-term care, as defined by the VA, may be provided in a person’s home, a community site, residential setting, or nursing home. Eligibility for services covered by the VA are determined based on a Veteran’s need for ongoing treatment, service availability in their area, financial eligibility, priority group status and insurance coverage. Long-term care services may also be covered though Medicare, Medicaid, insurance or private funds. In some instances, Veterans may be able to use the Aid and Attendance Allowance to cover needed long-term care. The Aid and Attendance Allowance is an additional monthly monetary benefit provided by the VA for certain Veterans who receive a pension. To be eligible, Veterans must: • Require the help of another person for

Tell them you saw it in the SourceBook

everyday personal care needs (such as bathing, dressing, or toileting); or • Be bedridden; or • Live in a nursing home and be physically or mentally incapacitated; or • Have poor eyesight (5/200 corrected visual acuity or less in both eyes). The VA also offers a Housebound Allowance to certain eligible Veterans who are restricted to their residence because of a permanent disability. This additional monthly monetary benefit can be used to help pay for needed care services provided in the Veteran’s home. To apply for either the Aid and Attendance or Housebound benefits, Veterans must send a written statement, including a report from their doctor documenting the need for services, to their Veterans Benefits Administration regional office. Additional Services Aging Veterans are also eligible for several other services. These include a Geriatric Evaluation, which will assess the Veteran’s ability to care for themselves and result in a care plan. Adult Day Health Care programs are available to provide therapeutic services to Veterans in a community setting. The VA also offers Respite Care services to provide caregivers with relief from the demands of caregiving. Skilled home care services are provided by the VA and contract agencies for homebound Veterans. Finally, hospice and palliative care services are offered for terminally ill Veterans. For more information, Veterans and their families should contact their local VA health care facility’s Enrollment Office. Additional information is also available at www.va.gov/healthbenefits and www.myhealth.va.gov or by calling the VA toll-free at 1-877-222-VETS (8387). Information adapted from http://www. va.gov/geriatrics/ and from Health Care Benefits Overview 2012, a publication of the VA available at http://www.va.gov/ healthbenefits/resources/epublications.asp.

HOW TO

live independently

communities offer security with no home maintenance Independent living communities are residential communities for active older adults who want an enjoyable lifestyle free of the worries of home maintenance. They are similar to any apartment, condominium or single-family development, except that they provide special services, including security. Most independent living communities are fully secured with staff members greeting and screening all visitors around the clock. As many individuals at this stage in their lives are looking to pursue new hobbies and interests, the activities and amenities available at a community are a major factor for potential residents. Several independent living communities provide a full range of activities such as shopping trips, outings to cultural events and organized gatherings. Some communities

also have tennis courts, swimming pools and other amenities. Most offer a variety of meal plans with the option to prepare meals in your apartment. Most independent living communities do not offer health care services but some are affiliated with health care facilities that can provide such care when it is needed. Residents also have the option of purchasing home health care services from outside providers. Paying for Independent Living Most independent living communities are rental communities, but some are condominiums or single-family communities in which residents can purchase their own units or homes. Costs and services vary widely. In some communities, a monthly fee covers many services, while

in others a fee-for-service system is used. A few communities offer subsidies based on strictly defined need. To learn more, contact your local Area Agency on Aging. What to Look For Research your options and request information from those communities to which you have narrowed your focus. A major question for those who are considering an independent living community is how to meet their future health care needs. It is important to have a specific plan covering various levels of care, especially if you are only interested in making one move during this time. You also may want to question whether to select a fee-for-service arrangement or an all-inclusive fee.

baby boomers on the move Despite popular belief, a recent analysis of government data by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) reveals that the geographic distribution of households headed by someone age 55 or older is fairly even across most of the country, with more than 30 percent of all households in every state meeting this description. The study sheds valuable light on a key statistic for housing demand among active adults, as NAHB’s long-term forecast indicates that the share of 55+ households will grow every year through 2019, when the 55+ category will account for nearly 45 percent of all U.S. households. “As more baby boomers approach retirement and the average age of the U.S. population increases, many businesses— including home builders—are showing increased interest in designing products that appeal to customers 55 and older,” said Paul Emrath, NAHB’s vice president

Understanding Independent Living in Maryland In Maryland, senior apartments are generally for people age 62 and over, but some will accept younger disabled people. Spouses under age 62 may be allowed. There are usually no supportive services available. Some apartments participate in the “Congregate Meals” program or the “Congregate Housing Services Program,” see below: Congregate Meals Congregate meals are offered in more than 250 meal sites including senior centers, religious facilities, housing facilities or other community sites throughout Maryland. Many meal program locations are within state-ofthe-art facilities and offer a variety of engaging activities such as health promotion and exercise centers. Meal sites offer an opportunity to meet new friends and participate in other social or health-related programs, including nutrition education, physical activity and health screening. In 2009, seniors received nearly 1.5 million meals in congregate settings throughout Maryland. Most senior congregate

nutrition sites offer a hot lunch; however, some congregate settings offer deli lunches, salad bars, soups and sandwiches or evening meals. Breakfast programs are offered in several locations. A variety of culturally-appropriate meals are offered in select locations including kosher, Vietnamese, Chinese and Korean.

gible residents are those who are at least 62 years of age and in need of assistance with one or more activities of daily living. The program provides meals; weekly housekeeping of each participant’s apartment; and limited personal assistance with activities such as bathing, dressing and laundry. The cost of the Congregate Housing Services Program varies by site. Individual program participants contribute to the cost based on a sliding scale. State subsidies are available for eligible residents of participating sites who require financial assistance. To qualify for a subsidy, an individual’s income may not exceed 60 percent of the State median income, and assets may not exceed $27,375 for an individual or $35,587 for a couple. Currently, there are more than 574 units of Congregate Housing located in more than 25 senior citizen apartment buildings statewide. To view a list of congregate housing sites in Maryland or to receive additional information on local housing programs, contact your local Senior Information and Assistance Program.

Congregate Housing Services Program The mission of the Congregate Housing Services Program is to provide support services and state subsidies to eligible residents of low and moderate income senior housing who, due to advanced age or chronic health conditions, need daily help with activities such as meal preparation, housekeeping and personal services. The Maryland Department of Aging contracts with housing and senior service provider organizations, such as local housing authorities, nonprofit organizations or housing management companies to operate a Congregate Housing Services Program for eligible residents of designated buildings.

HOW TO

F

or individuals who need some assistance with daily activities, assisted living communities are an important option. The living environments and amenities offered by communities vary widely; however, all communities provide residents with some level of daily assistance, which generally includes meal and housekeeping services. What is Assisted Living? Assisted Living communities offer housing and a variety of supportive services delivered by qualified staff members. As opposed to independent living communities, health care services are available at assisted living communities. The Assisted Living Federation of America notes that assisted living is “a unique transition from independent living without care” that “helps seniors enjoy an improved quality of life with independence and care combined.” Community amenities vary widely but can include private units, state-ofthe-art facilities, beautifully decorated common areas, barber shops and beauty parlors, pharmacies, physical therapy services, recreation rooms, libraries, gardening areas, and fitness centers. Consumers will quickly find that assisted living communities, also commonly called residential care facilities or personal care homes, come in a variety

For residents with more acute health care needs, such as Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, special units and/or specially trained staff members are often available.

Many communities also offer from large communities with 100 or exercise and wellness programs. Often, more residents to small homes with 15 activities are catered to and driven by or fewer residents. resident interests. Who Needs It? Residents of assisted living usually include anyone who needs some help with the activities of daily life. This includes eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting, medication management and walking. Survey data from the National Center for Assisted Living reports that 81 percent of assisted living residents need assistance with one or more of the activities of daily living. Most communities offer three meals a day served in a common dining area. Many also offer some type of assistance with transportation. Housekeeping and laundry services are standard offerings. Staff members are available to meet resident needs 24 hours a day. Most commu-

Choosing a Community It is a good idea to carefully review several of the available options. First and foremost, consider the needs and desires of the potential resident. Begin the initial process of narrowing the search by reviewing a list of all the local communities. Request a brochure from your top choices, as well as other specific information including the resident agreement or contract, a list of services and amenities, detailed prices, staffing information, admission and discharge criteria, and community rules. It is advisable to visit a facility more than once to get a complete feel for the lifestyle at the community. Talk with staff and residents and tour the entire facility.

how to pay for assisted living/personal care When considering potential assisted living communities, it is important to research your payment options. Although Medicare does not cover the costs of assisted living, there are a variety of payment sources available. The National Center for Assisted Living reports that “certain services are paid under Supplementary Security Income and Social Services Block Grant programs.” Individuals who meet income qualifications may also be eligible for assistance through their state Medicaid program. Some communities also offer internal fi-

nancial assistance programs. State and local governments may offer subsidies for rent to those who are eligible. Contact the local Area Agency on Aging for more information on subsidies and other payment assistance programs. Long-term care insurance policies provide another financing option for assisted living. Most of these policies will cover the costs of assisted living. Some of the costs of assisted living are also reimbursable through individual health insurance policies. While there are other payment options

available, the vast majority of assisted living/personal care costs are covered through private payments by residents and families. The nationwide average cost for an assisted living/personal care residence is $2,714 per month or $32,572 annually. These figures are averages only and do not account for more affordable or subsidized options that are available in most areas. Individuals should investigate all available payment sources and obtain specific information on standard rates and fees for additional services before choosing an assisted living community.

Assisted Living R e a l-L i f e Story

M

oving to Springwell Senior Living Community in Baltimore, Md., allowed Estelle Greenberg to be close to her only child, Nancy, who lives nearby. The two of them can often be found participating in community events or heading out to run errands. Except for a brief stay in Philadelphia, Estelle has spent her entire life in Baltimore. She completed her education in the Baltimore Public School System. Upon graduation, Estelle entered Sinai School of Nursing. After becoming a Registered Nurse, Estelle wanted to enlist in the armed forces. However, there was a height requirement — a minimum of 5 feet; Estelle was 4’ 11”. She recalls “puffing up” her hair so that she would appear taller when she went in for her test, but it didn’t work. Estelle’s career went in a different direction. Estelle worked for four years in the operating room at South Baltimore General Hospital, which is now known as Harbor Hospital. During this time, she continued her education, completing a certification course at Johns Hopkins University for Operating Room Technicians.

A native of Baltimore, Estelle found the perfect retirement community in her beloved hometown.

One of Estelle’s superiors took note of her skills and work ethic and suggested that she undertake additional studies to become an anesthetist. It was rare for a woman to enter this field, but Estelle did not shy away from the challenge. Soon after, she packed up and headed to Philadelphia for an 8-month program of study to become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). When Estelle came home, she returned to South Baltimore General, where her successful career spanned four decades. As a CRNA, Estelle was considered a child specialist; she had a special gift for helping children overcome their fears of

medical procedures. As her young patients were being wheeled away from their parents, they were often screaming and crying. “I would walk beside them and once they were away from their parents, I would look at them and say, “Okay, you don’t have to cry anymore, I am not your parent,’” she recalled. Surprisingly, the children would stop crying and settle down. During her career, Estelle met and married her husband, who was a salesman. The couple had a daughter, Nancy, who followed in her mother’s footsteps. Nancy graduated with her nursing degree from the Villa Julie College, now Stevenson University, and is currently a nurse researcher at the University of Maryland. Since her retirement, Estelle enjoys spending time with her friends at Springwell playing dominoes, Bingo and word games. She is very close to her daughter, and they both enjoy taking in cultural events. Estelle’s advice to young people just venturing out into the working world is to take the time to find something you really like. “If you enjoy what you are doing, you won’t mind getting up and going into work each day,” she said.

assisted living service plans According to the Consumer Consortium on Assisted Living (CCAL), a resident service plan is a blueprint for care that describes needs, likes and preferences and the specific manner in which this care will be delivered. Prepared thoroughly and thoughtfully, the service plan can help a resident achieve their highest level of function and quality of life. The service plan uses an interdisciplinary approach and includes the resident, the family if the resident wishes, the facility nurse and resident service coordinator, and may also include the

activity and dining directors. Many states require that assisted living facilities prepare service plans for each resident. Even if the state does not require it, a well run facility will use them. CCAL recommends that service plans be reevaluated every six months or anytime there is a significant change in a resident’s health status, including a hospitalization. For more information, visit the Consumer Consortium on Assisted Living website at www.ccal.org

The Facts on Congregate Housing Supportive Services for low-to-moderate incomes n Congregate Housing provides supportive services to residents in selected communities to help them remain independent. n Congregate Housing services are offered in senior citizen apartment buildings that serve low-to-moderate income residents and may be operated by local housing authorities, non-profit organizations or housing management companies. n Eligible persons receive daily meals, weekly housekeeping and laundry, and assistance with other activities of daily living.

n In Maryland, the State Department of Aging contracts with housing and senior service provider organizations to operate a Congregate Housing Services Program. n Participants must be 62, mentally or physically impaired and of limited income. Spouses of eligible participants must be 55 years of age or older and meet the same requirements. n Individual program participants contribute to the cost of Congregate Housing based on a sliding scale. To qualify for available state subsidies, an individual’s income may not exceed 60 percent of the state median income, and assets may not exceed $27,375 for an individual or $35,587 for a couple.

caregivers and stress

B

eing a caregiver for someone with a serious illness or chronic condition isn’t easy. There are a multitude of demands on your time, energy and resources. Between doctors’ appointments, dispensing medication, helping the ill person complete daily tasks, managing the ill person’s household, providing meals, and more, it’s all too easy to feel overburdened, overstressed and overwhelmed. That’s why Walter St. John, Ed.D., says it’s so important for caregivers to develop healthy and habitual coping mechanisms. “Even when the ill person is someone who you love deeply, such as a spouse or parent, being a caregiver puts you under a tremendous amount of mental, emotional and often physical stress,” points out St. John, author of Solace: How Care-

givers and Others Can Relate, Listen, and Respond Effectively to a Chronically Ill Person. Here, St. John shares ten healthy ways for caregivers to effectively cope with stress:

are entering daunting new territory. The good news is you’re not alone. Others have been where you are today, and even if your situations don’t match exactly, they can still share valuable advice and insight on your new role. “There are so many sources of help and guidance to which you can reach out,” points out St. John. “They include, but are certainly not limited to: friends or relatives who have acted as caregivers, the ill person’s medical team (e.g., doctors and nurses), clergy, social workers specializing in caregiving, and nursing home professional staff.”

Have realistic expectations for yourself. When many people take on caregiving roles, they have unrealistic expectations regarding how much they’ll be able to do, what their relationship with the ill person will be like, what type of attitude they’ll have and so much more. And when reality doesn’t match these ideals, negativity, conflict, stress and disappointment can Accept that as a caregiver, you result. need help.

HOW TO

find residential living

a more close-knit way of life Assisted living homes with 15 or fewer residents are often called group homes or senior care residences. Many people seeking an assisted living environment for themselves or a family member have investigated these homes as an option along with larger assisted living communities. Most of these homes offer the same services as larger communities, except in a smaller and more intimate setting. Considering a group home when researching assisted living is an important step if your loved one would prefer a smaller, homelike environment. Some of these smaller homes specialize in care for Alzheimer’s disease or related memory impairments. Individuals and families get to know each staff member well and can enjoy participating in the preparation and

serving of meals, housekeeping tasks, gardening, or other daily activities. Food is prepared in small quantities, and residents are encouraged to help. Group homes are usually nestled into neighborhoods, indistinguishable from other surrounding properties. Though regulations governing these homes differ among regions, a variety of agencies (county health departments, social services, long-term care ombudsmen) in most counties and cities provide significant monitoring of homes with four or more beds. Small assisted living facilities allow residents As with any community, it is impor- to maintain independence. tant to visit the homes to talk with staff as well as the current residents and their For more information, a comprehenfamilies.

HOW TO

evaluate nursing care

specialized care for individuals who need daily assistance

W

hile some individuals are able to continue running their households with little assistance, there are those who may have debilitating physical or emotional conditions that require care beyond what family or professional home care aides can provide. It is best to start researching nursing facilities before an emergency arises to avoid making a less than ideal choice.

What is Nursing Care? At a nursing home, care is administered by professionals under the direction of a physician. Many facilities also offer sub-acute, respite, rehabilitation and other short-term care. Rehabilitation services can be especially helpful for individuals who are recovering from surgery, an illness or any other life-changing event. Who is Nursing Care For? These homes serve as permanent residences for individuals who are too sick or frail to live at home, or as temporary facilities during a recovery period. Some enter a nursing home for a short-term stay after a surgery or illness, while others enter on a

more permanent basis. Who Pays for Nursing Care? Medicare, Medicaid, private insurance and personal assets are all used under various circumstances to pay for services in a nursing care facility. If a facility is not certified by Medicare and Medicaid, the care will have to be paid for entirely with personal funds. In general, Medicare pays for skilled nursing care following hospitalization for the same illness or condition at 100 percent of the cost for days 1 – 20. Some long-term care insurance pays for nursing home care; insurance payments are usually a fixed amount for a specified number of qualified days. The basic daily rate is the standard charge the nursing home bills to all residents, which covers the fundamental services every resident receives, including rent for the room, housekeeping, meals and general nursing care. It is important to understand all the services and amenities that are not included in the basic daily rate.

of your Area Agency on Aging. Ombudsman programs promote the highest quality of life and care for residents of nursing facilities and can help families and staff with inquiries and complaints. Visit your prospects at different times of day. Talk with residents. Be persistent about getting your questions answered.

Entering & Adjusting to Nursing Care Although some people enter a nursing home temporarily for a short-term stay, it is still a sad day for most. Reassurance from family and friends that love and contact will be maintained can ease the transition. The following steps may help lessen the trauma of this change: n Talk about the admission in advance and describe the home in detail. n Visit the home with the prospective resident beforehand and get to know the administration. n Involve the prospective resident as much as possible in the decision-making process. n Decide together what items to bring What to Look For in Nursing to the nursing home. n Be available the entire day of admisCare sion to help settle the resident and proBefore choosing a home, contact the vide support.

HOW TO

find an ombudsman

T

he word “Ombudsman” is a Swedish term for a person who acts as a third party in resolving problems. A Long-Term Care Ombudsman can assist consumers who are choosing long-term care providers (nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, retirement communities, adult day care programs, and home care agencies) by offering information on an individual provider’s services, history of complaints and licensure status. Ombudsmen are advocates who work to improve the quality of life for seniors and other individuals receiving long-term care services. In addition to providing the information necessary to allow you to make an informed decision about a long-term care provider, an Ombudsman can also investigate and help to resolve complaints against specific long-term care providers. Utilizing volunteers, an Ombudsman can arrange for weekly visits to a longterm care facility. The overall goal of an Ombudsman is to educate the community at large about long-term care issues

while simultaneously helping to train the staff of long-term care providers. Using the “Resident’s Bill of Rights”, an Ombudsman can inform consumers of their rights and long-term care providers of their responsibilities.

rights to resident confidentiality is required, so that the Ombudsman can review the records and speak to facility staff. The Ombudsman will act as an advocate on behalf of the long-term care recipient during this investigation. He/she will gather facts and relevant information to determine whether the complaint is valid. Then the Ombudsman will work with the long-term care recipient or their representative and the provider to determine the appropriate course to resolve the problem. For these reasons, your local Ombudsman is an important part of the continuum of care available in your community. If you have questions about long-term care providers, a complaint about a specific provider or for more information regarding long-term care issues/needs, please contact your Area Agency on Aging to locate an Ombudsman in your community.

What can an Ombudsman Do? An Ombudsman can formally address your complaints and concerns. The Ombudsman strives to empower the resident first and then intervene as needed. They can assist through counseling, formal complaint investigation and negotiation. Following a thorough investigation, the Ombudsman will work with you and the long-term care provider to help resolve your concern(s). The counseling you receive from an Ombudsman is strictly confidential and can help you to become an advocate for yourself or a loved one. An Ombudsman will listen to your complaint and then offer information and referrals via the telephone, email, or at an in- person visit This article was adapted from www. fairfaxcounty.gov/ltcombudsman, which to a long-term care facility.

patient and family may turn to hospice care when the goals of patient care have switched from curing to comforting. Hospice involves a special system of supportive services, including pain and symptom management, social services, and emotional and spiritual support. Any individual of any age with a diagnosis of a terminal disease may turn to hospice. How Does One Receive Hospice Care? Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance generally require a prognosis of six months or less for services to be covered. In addition to traditional medical hospices, there is a non-medical hospice program in Montgomery County that offers support for patients with a one year prognosis or less who may choose to continue their curative treatments. Hospice is unique in that care and support are provided to the entire family, not just the patient. A team of skilled professionals and volunteers work to serve the special needs of everyone in-

friends. However, hospice services may also be provided in long-term care facilities or in-patient hospice residential settings. What Services are Provided? Hospice team members focus primarily on managing the patient’s pain and symptoms with medication, medical supplies and equipment. Other services, such as speech and physical therapy, are available if necessary. If managing the symptoms within the home becomes impossible, hospice providers can offer short-term inpatient care.

HOW TO

pay for hospice

financial assistance is available Most hospice services are fully or partially covered by Medicare, Medicaid, private insurers or prepaid health plans. The non-medical services available in Montgomery County are free and delivered by a staff of trained volunteers. The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization notes that, “Eighty percent of people who use hospice care are over the age of 65, and are thus entitled to the services offered by the Medicare Hospice Benefit. This benefit covers virtually all aspects of hospice care with little out-ofpocket expense.” To receive the Medicare Hospice Benefit, patients must be eligible for Medicare Part A, have a terminal disease or condition with a less than six months prognosis, and sign a document certifying that they are choosing hospice care instead of routine Medicare benefits. Patients may only receive covered benefits from a Medicare-approved hospice program. In addition to Medicare’s coverage, hospice services are also generally covered by Medicaid or private insurers. Adapted from Caring Connection’s and the American Cancer Society’s websites. For more information, see www. caringinfo.org or the information on hospice care at www.cancer.org.

Hospice

Myths and Facts About Hospice Myth: Hospice is where you go when there is “nothing else to be done.” Reality: Hospice is the “something more” that can be done for the patient and the family when the illness cannot be cured. It is a concept based on comfort-oriented care. Referral into hospice is a movement into another mode of therapy, which may be more appropriate for terminal care. Myth: Families should be isolated from a dying patient. Reality: Hospice staff believe that when family members (including children) experience the dying process in a caring environment, it helps counteract the fear of their own mortality and the mortality of their loved one. Myth: Hospice care is more expensive. Reality: Studies have shown hospice care to be no more costly. Frequently, it is less expensive than conventional care during the last six months of life. Less high-cost technology is used and family, friends and volunteers provide 90 percent of the day-to-day patient care at home. Additionally, patients eligible for Medicare or Medicaid will pay few out-of-pocket expenses related to their hospice care. Most private insurers also cover some or most hospice related expenses. Myth: You can’t keep your own doctor if you enter hospice. Reality: Hospice physicians work closely with your doctor of choice to determine a plan of care.

understanding home infusion therapy

W

hen Mr. Phillips was unexpectedly admitted to an area hospital and diagnosed with a serious infection, he was immediately started on antibiotics that were administered directly into the blood stream through a catheter in his arm. As he started feeling better, the hospital case manager spoke to him about finishing his therapy at home and choosing a pharmacy to provide the “infusion” services. The thought of going home with a catheter in

his arm was overwhelming and Mr. Phillips wasn’t sure how to choose an infusion company he could trust. Mr. Phillips’ story happens each day in area hospitals. Patients find themselves needing intravenous antibiotics or other infusions that can be safely administered at home and minimize disruptions of the patient’s lifestyle and work activities. While many individuals prefer to receive treatment at home, going home on infusion medications can cause anxiety due to a lack of experience. Fortu-

nately, there are devices available for administration of home intravenous medications that are safe and very easy to use. Infusion therapy involves the administration of medication directly into a vein. It is prescribed when a patient’s condition is severe enough that it cannot be treated effectively with oral medications. Infusion of these medications can be short or long term depending on the diagnosis and severity of the infection. There are also other reasons that you

Hospice might need a home infusion company to provide medication. The most common types of therapy that need a home infusion company are anti- infectives, Parenteral Nutrition (TPN), Enteral Nutrition, Chemotherapy, Pain Management and Catheter care. The most frequently used infusion therapy is IV antibiotics; prescribed primarily for such diagnoses as cellulitis, sepsis, osteomyelitis, urinary tract infections, pneumonia and sinusitis. Home infusion therapy is appropriate for patients or caregivers that can learn to be independent with the administration of the medication. The patient or caregiver will be taught to safely administer the medication at home and have weekly visits by the infusion nurse. Some people return to work with their physician’s approval, and resume all of their activities. Fortunately Mr. Phillips’ case manager has since arranged for a clinical liaison from Infuscience to speak to him about his therapy before leaving the hospital. The infusion com-

pany will coordinate with the hospital and physician to safely provide his medications at home. They will also briefly show the patient how to administer the medication, answering any questions. After verifying his insurance benefits, discussing coverage, and coordinating the delivery of medication to the home, an experienced infusion nurse will meet him at home and teach him medication administration and catheter care. The nurse will stay with Mr. Phillips until he is comfortable and independent with his infusions. When choosing a home infusion company, patients can ask an infectious disease physician or specialist for recommendations. They should inquire about a company’s reputation for customer service, clinical excellence and professionalism, while asking if they can provide a clinical liaison to visit and answer all questions. It is also important that the company provide the following services: • Verification of insurance coverage and communication of out-of-pocket expenses. • Filing of all insurance claims for infu-

sion services. • Same day delivery of medications and supplies to patient’s home via private courier. • Pharmacist and nurse availability 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. • Coordination of nursing and all home health needs, with provision of further instruction and care during treatment. • Regular communication with the physician ensuring appropriate care and consultation with regards to lab monitoring and clinical outcomes. • Meeting quality standards and accreditation requirements of a nationally-recognized organization. • Compounding medications in a state of the art, USP 797 compliant pharmacy. • The easiest method of delivery available for the infusion without additional charges. Information modified from the National Home Infusion Association (NHIA): Infusion FAQs.

Alzheimer’s

alzheimer’s: the facts and figures According to the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2013 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures report, one in three seniors dies with Alzheimer’s or another dementia in the United States. The new report shows that while deaths from other major diseases continue to experience significant declines, Alzheimer’s deaths continue to rise – increasing 68 percent from 2000-2010. Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States and is the only leading cause of death without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression. Based on 2010 data, Alzheimer’s was reported as the

underlying cause of death for 83,494 individuals – individuals who died from Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s Association 2013 Facts and Figures reveals that in 2013 an estimated 450,000 people in the United States will die with Alzheimer’s. The true number of deaths caused by Alzheimer’s is likely to be somewhere between the officially reported number of those dying from and those dying with Alzheimer’s. More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease. Without the development of medical breakthroughs that prevent, slow or stop the disease, by 2050, the number

of people with Alzheimer’s disease could reach 13.8 million. Alzheimer’s and dementia place an enormous burden on individuals and families. In 2012, there were more than 15 million caregivers who provided more than 17 billion hours of unpaid care valued at $216 billion. The Alzheimer’s Association offers a variety of educational and support resources, including its 24/7, toll-free Helpline (1.800.272.3900). The full text of the report can be viewed at www.alz. org/alzheimers_disease_facts_and_figures.asp.

Alzheimer’s

HOW TO

know symptoms of alzheimer’s

the alzheimer’s association provides the common signs Memory loss that disrupts daily life is not a typical part of aging. It may be a symptom of Alzheimer’s, a fatal brain disease that causes a slow decline in memory, thinking and reasoning skills. Every individual may experience one or more of these signs in different degrees. If you notice any of them, it is recommended you see a doctor. 1. Memory loss that disrupts daily life One of the most common signs of Alzheimer’s is memory loss, especially forgetting recently learned information. Others include forgetting important dates or events; asking for the same information over and over; and relying on memory aides (e.g., reminder notes or electronic devices) or family members for things they used to handle on their own. What’s typical? Sometimes forgetting names or appointments, but remembering them later. 2. Challenges in planning or solving problems Some people may experience changes in their ability to develop and follow a plan or work with numbers. They may

5. Trouble understanding visual images and spatial relationships For some people, having vision problems is a sign of Alzheimer’s. They may have difficulty reading, judging distance and determining color or contrast. In terms of perception, they may pass a mirror and think someone else is in the 3. Difficulty completing familiar room. They may not realize they are the tasks at home, at work or at person in the mirror. leisure What’s typical? Vision changes related to cataracts.

Alzheimer’s

HOW TO

choose alzheimer’s care

a special care residence may be the right option Certification standards for nursing homes and adult care residences do not specifically address special care units. You will need to rely on your own judgment when considering a special care unit. Visit more than one special care unit and compare them. Use all your senses when you visit — sight, smell and hearing are all important. Be sensitive to the overall atmosphere and how the staff interacts with the residents. Ask about the number of staff on duty at all times and find out about any special training they have had. Generally, the more staff available, the higher the quality of care. Some reports find a daytime ratio of six residents to one staff person to be adequate in a special care unit; others feel that a ratio of eight to

one can also result in quality care. At night, when residents are in bed, a higher patient to staff ratio may be fine. Get a written description of the services and programs offered by any special care unit along with the charges or fees associated. This description should clearly explain to you how the special care unit differs from the rest of the nursing home or assisted living facility. It should emphasize special training the staff receives and describe the environment. Before choosing a special care unit, you should be confident that the higher price charged for care in the unit will actually result in better care for your relative. You may find that your relative can be adequately cared for in a regular unit.

Finally, talk with someone about special care units. Your state ombudsman, your local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association or your local Area Agency on Aging are all good resources. They may be able to provide you with a more detailed consumer checklist to help you compare special care units. All dementia special care units should focus on the individual needs of the resident. Care plans should be developed, implemented and reviewed often. All patients should be treated with respect and dignity in a physical environment that encourages independence while promoting safety. Researching special care residences can ensure your loved one will receive the proper support he/she needs.

HOW TO

remain at home

receive assistance while enjoying the comforts of home Home care can include a wide variety of healthcare and supportive services from professional nursing and home health aide services to physical, occupational, respiratory and speech therapies. An advancing industry, home healthcare is essentially skilled nursing care and certain other forms of healthcare that you get in your home for the treatment of an illness or injury. It is an important option to consider regardless of one’s age or health conditions. Options in Home Care An incredibly diverse field, home care includes companion care, home healthcare, skilled nursing or hospice care. COMPANION CARE is provided by caregivers or companions, who serve as surrogate family members, performing many of the tasks that family members would

typically complete. Assistance from companion caregivers can include meal preparation, medication reminders, laundry, light housekeeping, shopping, transportation and assistance with exercising. The overall goals of companion care providers are to ensure that the home environment remains safe and that the individual has a companion to spend time with when family is not available. HOME HEALTHCARE is for those who are no longer able to perform all of the functions of daily living by themselves but who do not require skilled medical services. A home health aide can help with activities of daily living (ADLs), which include bathing, dressing, transferring, eating and toileting. Additional services generally include meal preparation, mobility exercises, housekeeping, laundry,

medication reminders and transportation. SKILLED NURSING CARE is prescribed by a physician and is administered by a registered nurse. The services provided by skilled nurses include: administering injections, administering medications, wound care, IV monitoring, blood tests, catheter care, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, feeding tube administration and more. Finding a Provider After determining the type and amount of services needed along with payment options, consumers should begin interviewing potential providers. This is a highly important decision, since finding a qualified, reliable and compassionate individual is essential to the health and happiness of patients and their families.

HOW TO

pay for home care

understanding costs can help with decision making As the decision to remain at home is becoming an increasingly popular option, it is important to understand the costs of care and your payment options while researching different home healthcare companies. Costs for companion care are covered primarily by private payments and range from $15-$25 per hour. Home healthcare must also be paid for with private funds, unless it is prescribed by a physician and provided by a Medicarecertified agency. Prices for home health care also range from $15-$25 per hour. Long-term care insurance policies may cover companion care and home health care. If you qualify for Medicaid, a government program for low-income individuals, it may subsidize some of your home care needs. Since laws vary from

state to state, you will need to contact your local Area Agency on Aging for more information concerning government benefits. Skilled nursing care will be paid for by Medicare as long as it is determined to be “intermittent skilled care,” which includes occupational, respiratory, speech and physical therapy. To be covered, care must be ordered by a doctor. Individuals who meet income requirements may be eligible to receive skilled nursing services through Medicaid. Major medical health insurance will also cover Individuals who meet income requirements a limited number of skilled home vis- may be eligible to receive skilled nursing its.

rs. Ardis Watkins is a 96-year-old widow who enjoys a comfortable and peaceful retirement in the Evergreen neighborhood of West Baltimore. She was born in Chester, South Carolina on January 4,1917, to Thomas and Dora Buckson. Her mother was a teacher, while her father commuted to Baltimore to work at Sparrows Point. As a young woman, Miss Ardis Buckson moved to Baltimore City to start her adult life. Here, she met and married Mr. Norbon Watkins, and from this union three children were born. “We had a wonderful life together until his death in October of 2005,” stated Mrs. Watkins. Throughout her adult life, Mrs. Watkins worked at Johns Hopkins Hospital and then the old City Hospital. After retiring from City, she volunteered at Bon Secours Hospital for seven years, earning many awards for her service. Additionally, Mrs. Watkins has been a long time member of The Village Baptist Church and retains her membership today.

Following several brief hospitalizations, Mrs. Ardis Watkins has enlisted the services of P-B Health Home Care Agency to remain in her home while recuperating.

After so many years of caring for others, the time came when Mrs. Watkins needed care for herself. Through the Department of Aging, the family was put in

touch with P-B Health Home Care Agency. Following a thorough evaluation of her needs, P-B Health began providing personal care and chore services to Mrs. Watkins. Olivia Cross, a CNA and home health aide, was assigned to her care. “Olivia has been very courteous, caring and helpful in assisting with my personal needs,” said Mrs. Watkins. “Ms. Cross is a fine representative for P-B Health, and my family and I have become very fond of her.” In her later years, Mrs. Watkins has had several brief hospitalizations, after which skilled home health services were prescribed. These services have provided Mrs. Watkins with the benefits of nursing care, physical and occupational therapy, and nutritional counseling in the comfort of her own home. “Each [staff member I have worked with] was skilled and provided exceptionally good service,” reported Mrs. Watkins. Mrs. Ardis Watkins continues to do well and to live in her home. If she ever needs services again following a hospitalization or illness, she will not hesitate to call P-B Health to help her recuperate.

ary Afrookteh loves her home in Catonsville, Md., and that’s where she wants to stay. However, a year ago, a fall that resulted in a broken hip made living at home more difficult. That’s when her family decided to hire Right-at-Home, an In-Home Care & Assistance company, to help Mary maintain her independence, but with some extra help. Mary was born in Lossiemouth, Scotland (home of the Loch Ness Monster). While her Mom was visiting her grandmother, Mary was born. Six weeks later, they returned to their home in Brooklyn, NY. Since Mary was born in Scotland, she has dual citizenship. She has enjoyed going back to visit her homeland over the years. Mary met her husband while interning as a dietician at Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, where he worked as an Associate Professor of Surgery. Following her internship, she got a job at the Waldorf Astoria on Park Avenue.

Mrs. Mary Afrookteh (center) receives flowers from her caregiver, Kelly Berge (right), and Stephanie Nilson, Community Relations Director for Right-at- Home, InHome Care & Assistance.

“I got to meet all kinds of people,” said Mary. “I remember meeting Dodge MacArthur and Ronald Reagan, who was governor of California at the time.” After marrying, Mary and Dr. Afrookteh went on to have four children and now have five grandchildren. The couple moved to Catonsville, Md., in 1962 when Dr. Afrookteh was offered a heart surgeon position at the University of MD. Years later, Dr. Afrookteh opened his own practice in Catonsville. When Mary and her family realized she needed some extra help to remain in her home, they turned to Right at Home. Mary

chose the company based largely on the recommendation of her trusted financial advisor, Carol Chaney. Carol has known and worked with the owner of Right at Home, Carole Luber, for many years and knows the importance of referring clients to trustworthy providers. “Carol said they were top-notch and very involved with all of their clients,” explained Mary. “My daughter, also Carol, an attorney, felt comfortable after interviewing the owner, and my son, Ali, a doctor, was also familiar with the company.” After over a year of using Right at Home, Mary has only positive feedback. “My caregiver, Kelly, has been like my daughter. We are joined at the hip, and I couldn’t get along without her,” Mary said. “She knows all my likes and dislikes.” Ultimately, Mary is thrilled that she has been able to remain in her family home. She explained, “I don’t want to live with strangers. I have everything I want right here, including my kitties, Mo and Garfield”.

Questions to Ask When Hiring Paid Caregivers If facing this choice, the following questions will help in making a safe and educated decision:

1. If the hired caregiver becomes ill or

7. A  ssuming family is not available to

otherwise unavailable, what alternate arrangements can be made?

5. Are criminal history background checks,

2. Are social security, federal and state

taxes, and unemployment insurance paid so the family is not legally responsible?

3. Is there verification that the paid

caregivers can legally work in the U.S.?

4. If the hired caregiver is injured, who

is responsible? Remember that many homeowners’ insurance policies exclude

state abuse registry checks, and prior work reference checks completed?

6. Is there bonding and insurance in place

that would cover any injury to the client, damage, or theft? When an agency says they are “bonded,” family members should be sure that this covers injury or damages related to the caregiver(s) working in the home.

supervise paid caregivers at all times, will there be documentation that substantiates the completion of services?

If the adult caregiver does not have the time or resources available to answer these important questions, the services of a professional home care agency or adult day care center may be the right solution.

The comfort and care of your loved one is our most important priority. We have been providing skilled care, respite care and holiday care in the Baltimore area for over 25 years.

make aging in place possible Countless studies have shown that homeowners overwhelmingly prefer to age in a familiar place, but when daily life becomes too much to manage, substantial home alternations may be necessary. Certified Aging-In-Place Specialists (CAPS) can help reconcile the need for a familiar environment with the need to prioritize safety and accessibility. Such specialists have been trained in the specific needs of the older adult population and unique ways to modify homes. They are also experts in designing common remodeling projects and on how to combat

barriers to accessibility. One thing to keep in mind when considering a CAPS is that they draw from their professional knowledge to help turn your ideas into an organized and thorough plan. However, no matter where you start in the process, a professional remodeler will have to be hired to make the actual modifications to your home. Some typical modifications that will increase access and improve maneuverability include brighter lights, bath and shower grab bars, higher countertops, multifunctional first floor master suites,

and elevators. CAPS are mostly remodelers, but a number of general contractors, designers, architects and health care consultants who have been instructed in techniques for building aesthetically-pleasing, barrier-free living environments are also involved in planning. The CAPS designation was developed by The Remodelers Council of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) in conjunction with the NAHB Research Center, NAHB 50+ Housing Council and the AARP.

get your social security statement online n

By Terri Lewis

If you would like to get a Social Security Statement, which provides estimates of your future benefits, it is now available online at www.socialsecurity.gov. The online Social Security Statement is simple, easy-to-use and provides people with estimates they can use to plan for their retirement. The online Statement also provides estimates for disability and survivors benefits, making the Statement an important financial planning tool. People should get in the habit of checking their online Statement each year, around their birthday, for example. In addition to helping with financial planning, the online Statement also provides workers a convenient way to determine whether their earnings are accurately posted to their Social Security records. This feature is important because Social Security benefits are based on average earnings over a person’s lifeOwner & Operator, Linda Cromwell, was featured in the December 2012 regional edition of Forbes magazine in Mid-Altantic Women in Business.

time. If the information is incorrect, the person may not receive proper benefits. The online Statement provides you the opportunity to save or print the document for future reference, or to have handy for discussions with family members or a financial planner. According to the American Customer Satisfaction Index, users are giving the online Statement a score of 89, making it competitive with our other top-rated, best-in-government online services, such as the Retirement Estimator and online retirement application. To get a personalized online Statement, you must be age 18 or older and must be able to provide information about yourself that matches information already on file with Social Security. In addition, Social Security uses Experian, an external authentication service provider, for further verification. You

must provide identifying information and answer security questions to pass this verification. Social Security will not share your Social Security number with Experian, but the identity check is an important part of this new, thorough verification process. When your identity is verified, you can create a “My Social Security” account with a unique user name and password to access your online Statement. In addition, your online Statement includes links to information about other online Social Security services, such as applications for retirement, disability and Medicare. For more information about the new online Statement, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/mystatement. Terri Lewis is the Philadelphia Regional Communications Director for the Social Security Administration.

cancer family caregivers know your rights

A

n

By Deborah J. Cornwall

s a cancer caregiver, you have both responsibilities and rights. Interviews with 86 family cancer caregivers and informal conversations with dozens of survivors and people undergoing treatment revealed that every caregiver needs to take charge when faced with the challenges of cancer caregiving. Rather than allowing the cancer experience to be something that happens “to” them and their loved one, experienced caregivers talked about taking charge, to the degree possible, to restore some sense of control, overcome feelings of isolation, and try to maintain some shreds of normalcy and hope. Interviewees identified eight principles that guided their family caregiving: 1. We deserve a first-rate medical team that will become partners who treat us like real people whose feelings matter. • Don’t hesitate to seek out second opinions, or even third ones, and seek out a healthcare team that appreciates both the physical and the emotional aspects of the disease.

• Hire professionals who will partner with you, setting goals with you and exploring options at each treatment decision point. • Ensure that the team you choose has after-hours phone coverage, encourages your questions, speaks in layman’s terms instead of “Doctor-speak,” and values your push-back when necessary.

apy on the same basis as infused chemo. For links to find financial help for cancer drugs, click on the Resources tab at www.thingsiwishidknown.com. • Open every letter from your insurance company when it arrives, lest it be a renewal notice or denial of coverage that you might miss that requires action or appeal.

2. We have the right to ask about the costs of treatment and to understand what insurance does and doesn’t cover. • The 2010 Affordable Care Act, being implemented in phases, will be beneficial for cancer patients and caregivers. Currently, you can’t be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions, and lifetime coverage limits have gone away. By 2014 annual limits will also be gone, and appropriate clinical trials will be guaranteed coverage. • Nevertheless, make sure you know how to get your questions answered from your current insurer. For example, don’t assume that oral chemotherapy is covered the same way as infused chemo. As of January 1, 2013, only 21 states require insurers to cover oral chemother-

3. We are entitled to have a caregiver advocate for the person with cancer attend every office visit and remain on site during every hospitalization. • The person with cancer is consumed with the battle itself and may not hear or absorb everything that’s said at a medical visit; the family caregiver is an important extra set of eyes and ears. • Every hand-off from one healthcare professional to another poses the opportunity for a mistake, like failing to record an important development on the chart, or not reading the chart carefully enough to catch a medication allergy. Watching closely, asking questions and pushing back in the patient’s best interests are totally in bounds. Continued on page 142

program prevents falls The facts are simple: for elderly people, preventing falls means preventing disaster. At the same time, staying mentally sharp is of paramount importance for maintaining a high quality of life. “Both of these goals are achievable,” said Karen Peterson, executive director of Giving Back, a 501c3 non-profit agency, and the founder of the highly acclaimed Move With Balance healthy aging program. Her new illustrated book Move With Balance: Healthy Aging Activities for Brain and Body offers dozens of movements (not exercises) that anyone, even the frailest elder, can do, plus links to 60 online demonstration videos. Peterson explains that Move With Balance is not a “workout” program in the usual sense with muscle-strengthening and limbering exercises as the primary goal. Instead, the activities combine coordinated movement with cognitive skills.

For example, while elders move, they also read, recognize shapes, or recite a poem. The underlying principle is to challenge the brain and body simultaneously with a sensory-motor activity, repeat it until the challenge becomes easier or even automatic, then up the stakes by repeating the activity at a higher level. Developed over many years, these activities improve balance, sensory integration, spatial awareness, integration of the two hemispheres of the brain, brain timing and sequencing, reaction time, binocular teaming, and proprioception. Indeed, an independent evaluation shows a 38 percent reduction in falls for the treatment group using the Move With Balance program. Other benefits include increased coordination, sharper cognitive skills, better vision, and enhanced selfconfidence and joy in the aging years. “I met Karen Peterson twenty-five

years ago when she introduced me to her expertise in movement and perception,” said Edvin Manniko OD, a behavioral optometrist. “We worked together to help alleviate vision and balance issues. Her present concern is enhancing balance and thereby preventing falls.” Group leaders, caregivers, or individuals who purchase Move With Balance: Healthy Aging for Brain and Body receive support from an interactive website that includes the videos and other instructional elements. Karen Peterson, M.A. is the executive director of Giving Back and the founder of the Move With Balance healthy aging program. She has a combined 40 years of teaching experience in adult education programs, colleges, and senior centers. More information is available at www. MoveWithBalance.org.

the medicare age is still 65 n

By Sandy Johnson

If you’re in your sixties, you probably know that the age to receive full retirement benefits has changed. But it’s important to remember that the age to begin receiving Medicare has not — it is still 65. Even if you have decided to wait until after you are age 65 to apply for retirement benefits, most people should start getting Medicare coverage at age 65. If you would like to begin your Medicare coverage when you first become eligible, we suggest that you apply within three months of reaching age 65. You can do it online in as little as 10 minutes at www.socialsecurity.gov/ medicareonly. At the website, you’ll find more than just the online Medicare application. You’ll also find information about Medicare, and have the opportunity to watch

THE

Nurse Bank OF MARYLAND

some short videos about applying for Medicare online. One is a family reunion for the cast of The Patty Duke Show. In another, Patty Duke and George Takei go boldly where you should be going — online. Why go online to apply for Medicare? Because it’s fast, easy and secure. You don’t need an appointment and you can avoid waiting in traffic or in line. As long as you have ten minutes to spare, you have time to complete and submit your online Medicare application. People who started receiving Social Security retirement or disability benefits before age 65 do not need to apply; they will be automatically enrolled in Medicare. There is no additional charge for Medicare hospital insurance (Part A) since you already paid for it by work-

ing and paying Medicare tax. However, there is a monthly premium for medical insurance (Part B). If you already have other health insurance when you become eligible for Medicare, you should consider whether you want to apply for the medical insurance. To learn more about Medicare and some options for choosing coverage, read the online publication, Medicare, at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/10043.html or visit www. Medicare.gov. To learn more about applying for Medicare Only using the online application, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov/ medicareonly.

advocating home care trade association promotes in-home care The Maryland National Capital Homecare Association (MNCHA) is the only trade association for the home care sector in Maryland. It represents both non-profit and for-profit health care providers in Maryland and Washington, DC including: • Medicare-certified home health agencies, • Private duty agencies and registries, • Home medical equipment businesses, and • Related businesses that provide services to providers listed above. MNCHA members are the executives and decision makers of the industry, but staff members of each member organization have access to a full array of educational, government affairs, training, meeting and membership services. Membership includes all the major hospital systems, non-profits and businesses in Maryland involved in homecare. MNCHA’s presti-

gious Board of Directors directs the activities of the association, along with its active committees and membership. MNCHA is a primary provider of information and training for the home care sector and last year provided 12 educational conferences or meetings on clinical, service delivery or business issues. MNCHA meetings are open to nonmembers, as are three Leadership Forums each year, which are attended by members and non-members. MNCHA is a 501(c) 6 non-profit incorporated in the state of Maryland.

home; and assists family members in caring for the aged, disabled or injured at home. MNCHA is dedicated to: • Advocating for legislation which improves the delivery of and appropriate funding for home care products or services, • Promoting high standards of home care products or services, • Promoting appropriate utilization of home care products or services, • Providing top quality educational, clinical and other training for both members and non-members, and • Representing the Maryland and Washington, DC home care sector at the national level.

help is available in your neighborhood and across the country Government agencies are an invaluable resource and can serve as clearinghouses for much needed information and provide a vital connection to programs and services. The Older Americans Act (OAA) of 1965 created the Administration on Aging (AoA), an agency of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and a national network of agencies that promote and protect the health and well-being of older adults. Amendments to the OAA provided grants to Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs), giving them the resources to identify local needs and plan and fund local programs. The Department of Health & Human Services describes this comprehensive network as the National Aging Network. The key components of this network, which

marci’s medicare answers released from the military, naval or air service, you may be able to get health coverage through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). You can also have Medicare, if you are eligible for Medicare due to age, disability, End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) or Lou-Gehrig’s disease (ALS). However, keep in mind that Medicare and VA benefits do not work together. Medicare does not pay for care that you receive at a VA facility. In order for Medicare to cover your care, you must receive care at a Medicare-certified facility that works with your Medicare coverage. Additionally, in order for your VA coverage to cover your care, you must usually receive health care services at a VA facility. Bear in mind that you may want to consider enrolling in Medicare Part B

(Medicare medical insurance), even if you have VA coverage. Having Medicare Part B may guarantee you medical coverage outside the VA health system. Additionally, if you delay enrolling into Medicare Part B when you are first eligible to do so, you may incur a premium penalty and experience gaps in coverage. Some veterans use their VA drug coverage to get their medications, since VA drug coverage may offer more generous prescription drug coverage than Medicare Part D, the Medicare prescription drug benefit. Since VA drug coverage is also considered creditable (as good or better than the Medicare prescription drug benefit), those who use VA drug coverage can get their medications from a VA facility and delay enrolling into Medicare Part D without penalty.

If you have questions about VA benefits and coverage, contact the VA Health Administration Center at 1-800-733-8387 or 1-877-222-VETS (877-222-8387). —Marci Marci’s Medicare Answers is a service of the Medicare Rights Center (www. medicarerights.org), the nation’s largest independent source of information and assistance for people with Medicare.

HOW TO

prevent falls

accidents can be serious for seniors

A

ccording to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), one in three adults age 65 and older falls every year. While the severity of these falls and the resulting injuries can vary, falls are always a serious occurrence for older adults. Common injuries from falls include hip fractures and head traumas. For many seniors, falls can lead to extended hospital stays or even life threatening injuries. Even if a fall does not result in an injury, it will likely leave the senior feeling scared and may lead to a gradual limiting of activities. Fear, combined with an increasingly sedentary lifestyle, will only increase the risk of a fall in the future. National and local community and

non-profit organizations are working with seniors and their families to help decrease the risk of falls and lessen the impact of falls after they occur. These organizations provide information and services that may help improve the quality of life for seniors.

• In 2000, direct medical costs of falls totaled a little over $19 billion—$179 million for fatal falls and $19 billion for nonfatal fall injuries. This equals $28.2 billion in 2010 dollars (CDC). Injuries from a fall can range from minor to severe, but the risk of serious injury is much greater among the senior adult population. For many seniors, falls are the initial injury in what becomes a long hospitalization and recovery process. For others, falls may result in a loss of independence, or in the most severe cases, a loss of life.

Understanding the Risks On both a national and a local level, the risk of falls is one of the largest, preventable medical challenges that seniors face. The statistics on falls and the injuries they cause are alarming. For instance: • In 2008, more than 19,700 older adults died from unintentional fall injuAvoiding Falls ries, according to the CDC. • The death rates from falls among One of the simplest ways that older older men and women have risen sharply adults can reduce their risk of falling is over the past decade (CDC). by exercising.

Home Car e balance and maintain leg strength. Leg muscles naturally weaken with age; weight-bearing exercises that focus on improving leg strength can help mitigate the risk of falling. For many seniors, living an increasingly sedentary lifestyle is one of the biggest contributing factors to falling. The CDC highly recommends exercise programs and classes, such as Tai Chi, to help improve and maintain balance. Of course, seniors should consult with their doctors before beginning any exercise routine. Medication interactions are another major risk factor for falls. Seniors should check with their doctor or pharmacist periodically to ensure that their medications are not causing unwanted interactions or dangerous side effects. Many prescription and over-the-counter medicines can cause drowsiness or dizziness, which might increase the risk of falling. Seniors should also make sure to have their vision checked by an eye doctor at least once a year. Eyeglass prescriptions should be reviewed annually and updat-

One quick and easy safety improvement all adults can make is to reduce the clutter in their home, focusing particularly on items that may be tripping hazards. Additionally, homeowners can consider adding grab bars and railings and enhancing lighting options.

There are several steps that can be taken to identify and correct potential fall hazards in or around the home.

Education efforts have included the development of brochures, posters and a pocket guide for physicians. Information adapted from the Centers for Disease Control.

A d u lt Day C e n t e r s

HOW TO

find daytime supervision

centers provide socialization and peace of mind for caregivers

A

dult Day Centers are an important option for family caregivers, as they offer socialization, activities, and necessary supervision to those who are socially isolated or need care and assistance. Caregivers can feel confident that their loved one is safe and well cared for while they are at work or performing other necessary tasks. Centers offer a variety of programs and amenities, including exercise programs and a diverse schedule of engaging activities. Assistance with the activities of daily living, including eating, walking, toileting and medication management may also be available. Additionally, many centers offer physical, speech and occupational therapies to their participants. All licensed centers provide nutritious meals and snacks on a daily basis.

Choosing a Provider Information on local Adult Day Centers may be available through senior centers, family physicians or the local Area Agency on Aging. After locating nearby providers, call them to request flyers, brochures, calendars and application information.

While reviewing this information, pay careful attention to how many years the provider has been in business and their licensures and certifications. Be sure to understand the staff credentials, staff to participant ratio, and the medical conditions the facility and its staff are equipped to handle. Inquire about the availability of transportation to and from the program if it is necessary. The types of activities offered and the menu variety should be considered as well. Specific costs and any financial assistance that is available should be clearly outlined in the information packet. Reviewing printed materials and asking questions over the phone can help narrow the choices, but the final decision of which Adult Day Center to use must be made in person. During the visit, carefully observe the general atmosphere of the building and the program. The layout of the building and the rooms should ensure easy accessibility for persons in wheelchairs or using walkers. The entire facility should be clean and pleasant. Furniture should be sturdy and comfortable, with choices available for lounging and participating in activities. Beyond the general setup of the facility, focus on the interaction between the

staff members and the participants. Do the participants appear happy and satisfied? Are volunteers available to offer assistance? The center should be a welcoming place, complete with staff members who are ready and able to help. Also, notice the participation level of the attendees. Are they actively involved? Inquire as to whether participants are involved in planning activities and how staff members handle suggestions for new programs. During the visit, staff members should be able to provide clear and easyto-understand information about the services and activities provided at the center. Be sure to obtain answers for any remaining questions about center procedures, staffing and costs. Checking references from individuals who are currently using this provider or have used them in the past is the final step. After choosing a provider, try them for at least three to five days. If there are problems making the adjustment, staff members may be able to offer advice to help make the transition smoother.
