I

regularly receive calls from readers who are in conflict with another family member regarding elder care decisions. Sometimes the calls are from siblings who cannot agree on the best course of action for a parent. Other calls come from seniors whose children are encouraging them to make a lifestyle change – a change they are not sure they want – or need. Often, the most heart-wrenching calls come from families who are unprepared for the costs of senior care. From “I’m not ready yet” to “We can’t afford that,” I have heard it all in the last three decades. I tell our readers today what I realized after only a few months in this business: there is always an answer. The decision may be challenging, but thanks in large part to the ever-growing local senior services industry, there are always choices. That is where we come in. From our comprehensive provider listings to our feature articles, Guide to Retirement Living SourceBook strives to provide readers with the information they need to make choices. In this issue’s cover story, readers

development of a very different type of love when Alice Heiderman meets Lily, the therapy dog at Morningside House of Friendship in Hanover, Md. (see page 32). Always known as a dog person, Alice has been the proud owner of many wonderful canine companions throughout her long life. However, her relationship with Lily is undeniably special. A resident of Morningside House’s special dementia care unit, Alice has benefited physically, emotionally and mentally from Lily’s companionship. Amazingly, Lily seems to know when Alice—and her fellow residents—need her the most and is always eager to offer an extra snuggle.

None of these families walked this road alone. They all worked closely with a network of trusted providers to create a successful plan for caregiving. In this and every issue of SourceBook, it is our goal to provide you with thousands of resources that can help you and your family make choices that fit your needs and your lifestyle. As I have learned, there is a senior-serving professional or community that can help you. Now, the choice is yours.

Wishing you all the best this holiday season

One of Herb and Ruth’s primary motivations for moving to a retirement community was to avoid burdening their children with future care decisions.

to talk to us about moving,” Herb recalled. “So many of their peers had one parent or another who started experiencing problems as they aged. They wanted us to make a move now, while we were still healthy.” After looking at retirement communities near each of their sons in Massachusetts, Colorado and Maryland, the couple easily decided that BayWoods of Annapolis was the place for them. “We came by here, and it was boating season, and it was clear pretty quickly that this was the place,” Herb said. Now, the couple enjoys hosting all their sailing friends. “We tell all our friends with boats to come by, and we always have people over for dinner,” said Ruth. “The marina is full of sailors who go to Florida or the Bahamas every day. We used to make that trek, so as they come through, we tell them to bring their laundry and have a meal,” Herb explained. Even though they only moved six weeks ago, the couple is thrilled with the choice they made. “We absolutely made the right decision. I see this as another great adventure,” said Ruth.

One of the many pleasures of life at BayWoods has been the delicious dining options—and the fact that they no longer have to cook. “I had no problem giving up cooking, and the food and the variety here is great,” noted Ruth. “She’s even been giving away all her pots and pans,” Herb said with a laugh. Beyond the community amenities, the peace of mind that comes with lifelong care has been one of the biggest benefits of moving. The couple openly admits that they wanted to avoid burdening their children with their future care decisions and costs. “We’ve always done our own thing,” said Ruth. “Now that we’re here at BayWoods, we don’t have to depend on anybody but the staff members to provide for us.” Still independent and adventurous, Herb and Ruth Weiss continue to sail almost daily from their new homeport at BayWoods. After enjoying successful—but demanding— careers, the couple is thrilled to have the opportunity to relax and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with planning ahead. With no worries about their future, Herb and Ruth are ready for some smooth sailing.

A Place To Belong By Christy Brudin

E

veryone needs a place to belong—a place where they are safe and comfortable. This is true no matter how old you are, and regardless of your medical conditions or needs. Evelyn Brouse knows this simple truth well. She spent nearly three years searching for a place for her husband Robert (Bob) Brouse to belong. Struggling with early onset dementia, Bob needed constant care and supervision; he also needed stimulating activities and companionship. As his fulltime caregiver, Evelyn desperately needed some time to take care of herself. When she found The Senior Day Center at Stella Maris in Timonium, Md., she knew it could meet both of their needs. Bob and Evelyn met when she took a job at Sparrows Point Shipyard in Baltimore, Md. Although she had the job only a short time, the position changed her life forever. Bob was her supervisor, but the relationship quickly shifted from professional to personal. “It wasn’t long before he made me quit the shipyard,” Evelyn recalled. “He told me, ‘No wife of mine is going to work in the shipyard,’ and I responded, ‘Who said I

was going to marry you?’” Despite her initial jokes, Evelyn said yes, and the couple was married. Both previously married, Evelyn and Bob already had two children each and now have eight grandchildren. Shortly after they married, the couple moved to the house where Bob grew up in Dundalk, Md., where they still live today. Holding true to his promise that his wife wouldn’t work in a shipyard, Bob dedicated himself to helping Evelyn find a new career. He put her through cosmetology school and later through legal school. “He took care of the children while I was in school,” she said. Although she never became a practicing beautician, Evelyn has used her skills to cut Bob’s hair since her graduation. After graduation a second time, she found her calling and became a paralegal, a job she held for more than 20 years. When he wasn’t working in the shipyard, Bob loved being on the water. “We did a lot of fishing and crabbing,” Evelyn said. “Bob has always loved the water, and he’s been on it all his life. We live right on the water, and we had this 20-foot boat that we were on all the time.”

Robert (Bob) Brouse gets the care he needs, as well as stimulation and companionship, at the Stella Maris Senior Day Center in Timonium, Md.

The hallways throughout The Senior Day Center at Stella Maris are designed to feel as if you are walking through a village with various storefront signs and awnings.

Even when they weren’t enjoying Maryland’s shorelines and waterways, the Brouses were always outside. “We both enjoyed being outside, but Bob just loved it. On the weekends, he would leave the house right after breakfast, and he wouldn’t come back in until nightfall. He was always gardening or doing some sort of work outside,” recalled Evelyn. Several years ago, Bob started to experience some problems at work. At the time, he was working for the Coast Guard climbing ships. His co-worker contacted Evelyn and asked her to take him to the doctor following some abnormal behavior. The doctor diagnosed Bob with early onset dementia, and Evelyn’s journey as a caregiver began. Despite the diagnosis, the doctor recommended that Bob continue working to maintain a consistent routine. However, because of the physical and potentially dangerous nature of his work, that wasn’t possible for long. “After just a couple months, his co-worker called me again and said that I had to get him out of there before he got killed or killed someone else,” Evelyn remembered. Following Bob’s retirement, Evelyn continued working for a year. However, she began to have increasing concerns about him staying home alone and decided to quit. Evelyn’s retirement at such an early age meant that the couple had to live off Bob’s social security, which Evelyn acknowl-

edged has been difficult. “I’ve had so many people ask me why I do this,” she said. “I tell them there were those vows when we got married that said, ‘in sickness and in health, until death do us part,’ and I take that very seriously.” For three years, Evelyn dedicated her life solely to the care of her husband. It wasn’t until she realized that he was eligible for Veteran’s benefits because of his prior military service that she began to get some help with the enormous burdens of caring for someone with dementia. A doctor at Veterans Affairs (VA) informed Evelyn that Bob was eligible for adult day care services paid for by the VA, and she quickly began looking for help. The Senior Day Center at Stella Maris was one of the first adult day centers she visited. “When my daughter and I pulled into the parking lot at Stella Maris, I had this tranquil feeling of relief come over me, and I thought, ‘This is where he belongs,’” Evelyn recalled. After touring the beautiful property and learning about their programming, Evelyn felt even more confident she had found a perfect fit. “I did look at some other places, but no one else compared to Stella Maris, especially in terms of programming,” she said. The Senior Day Center at Stella Maris offers a complete continuum of care. Unlike other adult day care centers, Stella

In addition to offering dining experiences, the dining room also serves as a venue for the various entertainers who perform for members. You can often hear a piano being played or a jazz singer belting out some tunes.

Maris offers activities, programs, meals, excursions and transportation, as well as medical services, rehab services, dental care, personal care, beautician/barber services, podiatry and lab work. In addition to independent activities, the Center also offers an array of group programs, including music by outside entertainers, games and physical activities. Bob has been going to Stella Maris two days a week for almost a year now, and the program has made an enormous difference in both Bob and Evelyn’s lives. “It’s just phenomenal to be able to drop him off and not have to worry about him because I know he’s being well taken care of by the amazing staff,” Evelyn said. “He also seems so much more calm when

he comes home.” Bob particularly enjoys the Center’s music programs, humming along to the music and dancing with staff members. For Evelyn, the peace of mind that comes with knowing that Bob is safe and well cared for is incredible. “I know that when he is there he gets everything he needs: his meals, his medications and some stimulation. They handle it all,” she noted. Stella Maris has also given Evelyn the breaks she needs to continue caring for her husband. “Having those two days off makes me a better caregiver,” she acknowledged. “If there is a tough day, I always know that I will get a day off soon. I really can’t say enough about how much Stella Maris means to us.”

When caring for your loved ones, choosing Stella Maris means choosing comprehensive, compassionate and dignified care. Long Term Care • Senior Living • Senior Day Center Skilled Home Care • Hospice Care • Short Term Respite Rehabilitation Services • Private Companion Services

HOW TO

prepare to move

roll up your sleeves, or let a professional help

T

he 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 “D-

Day” (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 responsibilities 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!

We are the physical & emotional reinforcements you need.

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.

HOW TO

sort through items

donating and recycling your belongings

D

onating or giving away household items or recycling them (finding new uses) can be a frustrating and confusing matter. What can you actually give away, and who will take it? This is often the part of the process where people become the most easily bogged down. The following, from Moving On discusses a couple of options when you are sorting through your belongings. Donating and Recycling When people want to donate household items, often the first place they think of is one of the major charities like Goodwill, the Salvation Army, or Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America—and for good reason. These agencies are willing to take many of the things we would like to get rid of and put them to good use by either giving them to the needy or selling them in their thrift shops, with the profits going to support their social services programs. Often these organizations will make it even easier on donors by coming to the home to pick up donated items. And when you give to charitable organizations, your donation is tax deductible. To be considerate when donating, make sure that all clothes are clean and wearable; all appliances are in work-

ing order; and anything with multiple pieces, like children’s games or tool sets, have all the parts intact. Exactly which items charities accept varies from organization to organization and from location to location, so it’s best to contact your local outlet for specifics. Some charities post guidelines on their websites for items they will accept. Most charities accept clothing of all types and shoes for men, women and children, as well as costume jewelry and accessories; appliances in working order and household items; televisions, stereos and computers; books, toys and games; and sporting goods. Most do not accept broken appliances, water beds, furniture in bad repair, magazines or old encyclopedias, bathroom fixtures such as toilets or sinks, tires, paint, swing sets, water heaters, windows or doors. Household items can also be donated to smaller or locally based charities, such as veterans’ associations, churches and synagogues, children’s

charities, and programs for the elderly. Community theaters, women’s shelters, prisons, hospitals, rehabilitation centers and nursing homes also often accept donations of furniture and household goods. You might also inquire at local schools, preschools, day-care centers, art schools, and after-school programs to see if they could use toys, games, books, desks, art supplies or musical instruments. The following are among the many household items charities and companies may accept: furniture; clothing; computers; cell phones; medical supplies; books; and odds and ends such as fabric, wood, leftover tile or paint. Excerpt from Moving On: A Practical Guide to Downsizing the Family Home by Linda Hetzer and Janet Hulstrand, which provides tips to get started, strategies for keeping things in perspective, and extensive source listings of where to donate or sell contents of a home.

A

fter living in his home near Perry Hall, Md., for more than 30 years, Mr. S* knew it was time to move. He also knew that relocating would be an enormous task. That’s when he turned to Abilities Network’s Move Management program. In his mid-90s, Mr. S had been living alone in his single family home for more than a year since his wife passed away. He was starting to experience increasing health challenges, including problems with his sight and hearing. While he had in-home care providers, he knew that he needed more help and made the decision to move to Oak Crest, a nearby retirement community. Mr. S felt confident that the move would simplify his life and give him the help he needed to enjoy his retirement. However, the thought of moving was overwhelming. While his daughter was supportive of the move, she lives in another state and could not physically assist with all the downsizing and packing. When the staff at Oak Crest recommended Abilities Network to help with his move, Mr. S and his daughter were relieved. A non-profit organization, Abilities Network offers a wide variety of moving options, as well as community services. Services include a free speaker series in their Towson, Md., office once a month. Prior to his move, Mr. S met with one of Abilities Network’s move managers, Heather Murphy, to determine the best plan of action. With the help of his

daughter, they decided to focus first on moving to his new apartment. On the day before the move, Abilities Network staff members arrived at the home of Mr. S and began packing his belongings. The professional staff members were able to help Mr. S and his daughter

make final decisions about what to take to his new home, keeping space considerations and sentimental value in mind. On moving day, Abilities Network oversaw the movers and unpacked and put away everything. When Mr. S entered his new apartment, it was completely set up, with the bed made and everything in its place. While Mr. S was busy meeting new friends, the Abilities Network team returned to his old home and began sorting through his remaining belongings. They sold some items and donated the remainder to a local charity. Within two weeks, the home was ready to be placed on the market. “I had no idea how long it would take to empty out the entire house,” said Mr. S’s daughter. “Although my dad and I worked for nearly two weeks, there was so much more to do, and it was great to know that Abilities Network would take care of everything. They were able to help us find a carpenter/painter who got the house ready for sale after it was emptied. It took so much off my dad’s shoulders and my mind.” In addition to his well-organized apartment and new friends, Mr. S is also enjoying all the amenities that come with retirement living. Chief among these amenities are the delicious meals. “My father is adjusting well to his new life. He has already gained five pounds,” his daughter noted with a smile. *Name has been changed.

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

tastes, the financial and sentimental value of possessions, and the new floor plan.

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 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.

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

Puppy Love By Christy Brudin

A

lice Heiderman has always been a dog person. Throughout her life, she’s been the proud owner of many wonderful dogs. However, when she met Lily, the therapy dog at Morningside House of Friendship in Hanover, Md., what had always been an interest turned into a passion. Lily’s special breed of puppy love has helped improve Alice’s physical and emotional wellbeing. After graduating from high school, Alice took a job at W.R. Grace and Company, a chemical company near Baltimore, Md. While working in the company’s silica gel plant, Alice met her future husband, Gilbert. “He spent a lot of time trying to impress her and finally caught her eye,” recalled Leslie Heiderman Schell, the couple’s daughter. Their mutual love of dancing brought Alice and Gilbert together. “They both liked to dance, and they danced a lot throughout their marriage,” Leslie said. When Leslie was older, Alice took a job with the Anne Arundel County Public School System as a secretary. She later returned to college to attain a teaching degree. After graduating from Towson State University, she became a fifth grade teacher. Alice taught fifth and sixth grades for decades before finishing her career as a kindergarten teacher. Throughout her life, Alice has always been a dog lover. “As a kid growing up, I remember us always having dogs, often more than one at a time, and they all lived in the house,” Leslie recalled. Alice cared for the family’s dogs and formed special bonds with them. After her father passed away, Leslie invited Alice to come and live with her family. She brought along her dog, Miss Murphy, when she moved. Alice lived with Leslie for nearly six years, but as her care needs increased, Leslie began to consider other options. “I was familiar with Morningside House of Friendship because my choral group sings there, and I thought it might be good for my mother,” Leslie recalled. While Leslie looked into other communities, she quickly decided that her initial instinct was right. “It was clear that Morningside was a good fit, and I’ve been so pleased with it,” she said. “I love the people who work with my mother. Beyond the excellent care they provide, they also go out of their way to make sure that I’m always a part of my mother’s care decisions.” Morningside House of Friendship is one of six Morningside Senior Living communities throughout Maryland and Virginia.

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.

Although insurance companies are required to offer standardized Medicare supplement plans and benefits, the rates and value-added services will vary, sometimes significantly.

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 Continued on page 37

HOW TO

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 at-

torney, 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 clients to other professional and/or non-legal resources that are available to help meet their needs. Do I Need an Elder Law attorney? Because of the expense of legal services, you want to be absolutely certain that your situation necessitates the assistance of a legal professional before hiring an attorney. Before consulting an attorney, you should consider the following questions: Is this a complex legal 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. Who Pays For It? In most cases, you pay for the services of these attorneys. However, there are attorneys who will occasionally take on pro-bono cases or will work on a contingency fee. Local law schools are good places to check for assistance as many students will help low-income or disabled individuals to practice their skills. Information adapted from the National Academy of Elder Law Attorney’s and the National Elder Law Foundation’s websites. For more information, please visit their sites: www.naela.org or www.nelf.org.

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.

flat ratings, the rate will not increase simply because you grow older. An attainedage 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.

In most states, Medicare enrollees may select from any one of 10 standardized Medicare supplement plans approved for sale within their state of residence.

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.

HOW TO

find an elder law attorney

utilize your resources and ask the right questions 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. You will also want to inquire about the attorney’s certifications and memberships with professional organizations. Finally, be sure that you are clear on the specific costs. The questions below will help you to get the information you need before making a final decision: n What will it take to resolve this issue? n How long has the attorney been practicing?

What percentage of the attorney’s practice is devoted to this area of law? n How much experience does the attorney have with cases like yours? n How much elder law training has the attorney had, and from what organizations? n If a trial will be involved, does he/she do trial work? n Is your attorney a member of the local bar association? The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys? n Is your attorney certified by the National Elder Law Foundation? n What additional out-of-pocket expenses will be incurred? n What is the estimate of the cost involved to resolve your problem?

along for the ride transportation providers make sure you’ll get there Transportation or personal concierge services can give older adults a lift, while raising their spirits as well. Not only do they provide a ride to and from important errands and engagements, but they also can offer valuable companionship for people who so often feel isolated from the world. Getting from here to there Sometimes, all older adults will require is a ride from Point A to Point B. With the transportation services available throughout the state of Maryland, you can be certain that your parent or loved one will receive a safe and reliable ride. These services can be less costly than a series of cab rides from place to place, and you’ll know that someone will be personally accountable for the safety and happiness of your special rider.

40

retirement-living.com RTA_MDSpring14.indd 1 1-800-394-9990 ■

It may be time to consider a transportation provider if your parent or loved one has experienced memory loss, an inability to perform routine tasks, impaired judgment, slowed reaction time or a diminished attention span. Some older adults may even find that they like riding with a companion much better than being behind the wheel alone. This buddy approach will ensure that all the errands for the day get finished, and appointments are kept with punctuality. Some providers will often leave a full report of the day’s activities, pointing out any important developments or snags along the way for future reference. Wheelchair accessible transportation services are available throughout the area, but check in advance before booking services through a company. All special needs should be accommodated, with no questions asked.

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.

Talking on the phone can be easy again.

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

42

retirement-living.com

1-800-394-9990

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.

Pledge of Ethics for Professional Geriatric Care Managers The National Association of Professional Geriatric Care Managers lists the following Pledge of Ethics on its website: PROVISION OF SERVICE I will provide ongoing service to you only after I have assessed your needs and you, or a person designated to act for you, understand and agree to a plan of service, the results that may be expected from it, and the cost of service.

CONFIDENTIALITY I will hold in trust any confidence you give me, disclosing information to others only with your permission, or if I am compelled to do so by a belief that you will be seriously harmed by my silence, or if the laws of this State require me to do so.

SELF-DETERMINATION I will base my plan of service on goals you, or a person designated to act for you, have defined, and which enhance the decisions you have made concerning your life.

REFERRALS/DISCLOSURE I will refer you only to services and organizations I believe to be appropriate and of good quality. I will fully explain to you any business relationship I have with any service I propose, and give you information on alternatives, if at all possible, so that you, or a person designated to act for you, can make an informed decision to accept or reject the services I recommend to you.

LOYALTY My first duty is loyalty to you. I will always provide services based on your best interest, even if this conflicts with my interests or the interests of others. TERMINATION OF SERVICE I will end service to you only after reasonable notice. I will recommend a plan for you to continue to receive the services as needed. SUBSTITUTE JUDGMENT I will not substitute my judgment for yours unless I am acting in the role of your guardian, appointed by a Court of Law, or with your approval, or the approval of someone designated to act for you.

COOPERATION I will strive to ensure cooperation between all of the individuals involved in providing service and care to you. QUALIFICATIONS I am fully qualified in my profession to provide the services I undertake. I continue to improve my skills and knowledge by participating in professional development programs and maintaining certification and licensing in my profession. DISCRIMINATION I will not promote or sanction any form of discrimination.

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. The Certificate on Aging: » Affordable » Exceptional faculty » Flexible, evening classes

» Part-time » No tests or grades » No admission requirements

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.

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.

generosity runs deep in boomers study explores family interdependencies and retirement

D

uring the last five years, three out of five Americans age 50 and older have provided financial assistance to members of their family, including adult children, parents, grandchildren, siblings or other relatives, according to a new Merrill Lynch study. Conducted in partnership with Age Wave, “Family & Retirement: The Elephant in the Room” is an in-depth study exploring modern family interdependencies and the challenges Boomers face in balancing them with their own retirement plans and financial security. Conducted in August 2013, the study is based on a nationally representative survey of more than 5,400 respondents. The average financial assistance pro-

P

vided to family members during the last five years was nearly $15,000 – and significantly more among the nation’s wealthiest families. This support may have been to help relatives meet a onetime need or ongoing assistance over the course of many years, and was often given without expecting anything in return. However, the vast majority of people age 50 plus (88 percent) have not factored such support for family into their financial planning. “Given the challenging economic climate during the past several years, it’s not surprising that so many Americans have extended financial support to their loved ones,” said Andy Sieg, head of Global Wealth and Retirement Solutions for Bank of America Merrill Lynch. “However, such admirable will-

ingness to assist family members should not place one’s own long-term financial security in jeopardy.” Additional highlights from the study include: Are you the Family Bank? Nearly three in five people (56 percent) age 50 plus believe a member of their family is the “Family Bank,” meaning someone who their extended family is most likely to turn to for financial help. This person is often the one who is most financially responsible, has the most money or is the easiest to approach. Sacrificing Retirement for Family: Half of pre-retirees age 50 plus say they would make major sacrifices that

Among these preretirees, 60 percent would retire later, 40 percent would return to work after retiring, and more than one-third (36 percent) say they would accept a less comfortable retirement lifestyle to help family financially. Generosity & Inheritance: Those helping family financially rarely do so because they expect future help or payback. People age 50 plus are 20 times more likely to say they are helping family because “it is the right thing to do” than because “family members will help them in the future” (80 percent vs. 4 percent). They are 5 times more likely to stop support because a recipient is not using the money wisely than because of worries about being paid back (57 percent vs. 11 percent). This generosity extends to a shift in mindset regarding inheritance. For example, 60 percent of people age 50 plus say they would prefer to begin passing on their assets dur-

ing retirement, rather than waiting until one-third (31 percent) of people age 50 plus with stepchildren say it complicates finanthe end of life. cial planning.

Those parents who are aware of how their money is being spent say it is given to help adult children with their rent or mortgage (20 percent), cell phone bills (18 percent), car payments (17 percent), health care expenses (15 percent) and student loans (11 percent), among other things. Loss of a Spouse through Death or Divorce: Only one-third (33 percent) of people age 50 and older say they feel well prepared for retirement if everything goes as they expect. Less than one-quarter (24 percent) would feel prepared if their spouse died or they divorced – a troubling statistic given that more than half of women over the age of 70 have been widowed4 and 14 percent of people age 50 and older are divorced5.

Early Retirement: Less than one in four (23 percent) of adults age 50 plus say they would be prepared financially if they or their spouse were forced to retire early because of a health problem, despite the fact that one-third of people in the U.S. who retire early do so for health reasons6. While younger people consider cancer to be the greatest health-related worry of later life, older adults unequivocally say Alzheimer’s; nearly half of people age 85 and older have Alzheimer’s or related dementias7.

Care Giving & Receiving: The vast majority of people age 50 plus (91 percent) say they would not be prepared if an aging parent or relative needed extended long-term care. While 37 percent of people age 50 and older believe they may need long-term care in their lifetime, the reality is that twice as many – 70 percent – eventually will8. Most people (86 percent) age 50 plus

Troubling lack of discussion The study also found a significant lack of proactive discussion and engagement between family members on key financial topics. This can negatively impact various aspects of one’s retirement and overall financial security. Seventy percent of adult children age 25 and older have not had a discussion with parents about their retirement and

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 Grandchil-

dren: 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 information 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, educa-

Grandparents are also successful at teaching their grandchildren the importance of community involvement through philanthropy, volunteerism and voting. 2. Celebrate family. 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.

A

recent Harris Interactive survey on e-commerce and passwords showed that Baby Boomers were disproportionately affected by online password difficulties. Nineteen percent of online U.S. adults between ages 55-64 had given up on a purchase from an ecommerce Web site because they forgot a username or password. The password difficulties were not limited to e-commerce sites. More than 80 percent of U.S. adults between ages 55-64 who use the Internet have forgotten a password, and 54 percent have had to use the “reset password” option to retrieve account information.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

STAND OUT from the rest. The licensed physical, speech and occupational therapists at Charlestown and Oak Crest are experts in senior health care. You’ll enjoy individualized rehabilitation plans, developed with your input by an interdisciplinary care team that meets weekly to review your progress. You don’t have to be a current Charlestown or Oak Crest resident to benefit from our rehabilitation services, so call today to learn more.

sustaining hope in the face of cancer n

By Deborah J. Cornwall

Hope is a curious thing. It’s about looking forward to something positive and refusing to give up. It’s about persisting in the face of adversity, even when the odds and the facts seem to be working against you. It’s about creating positive energy that can nourish both body and soul. Interviews with 86 personal caregivers from 19 states who cared for 107 patients ranging in age from 2 to 92 with over 40 different cancers, as well as interactions with

dozens of local families affected by cancer revealed that sustaining hope in the face of cancer is both critical and problematic. All of these caregivers agreed that you aren’t your cancer, and that looking beyond the cancer to envision a “new normal” was key to their hope. Their six guiding lights were to:

cer-free, prolong life despite cancer, or help relieve patient pain and anxiety as death approaches? The more realistic the goals, the more likely they are to inspire hope, even if the patient is terminal.

2. L  ive life while you have it, and create joy every day. No matter how sick, the person you’re 1. Set realistic goals. caring for will always appreciate a surprise. Is the feasible objective to become can- Maybe it’s a bouquet of the first daffodils

• Interpret data cautiously. Several patient / caregiver teams decided that statistics about the broader patient population with a particular diagnosis weren’t necessarily relevant to them. This wasn’t denial; rather, it was recognition that every projection of aggregate survival rates includes a full range of outcomes, some more desirable than others. 6. Forestall later regrets. Almost every caregiver described trying to do everything possible to ensure they’d have no regrets, no matter how the course of treatment ended. That meant not only going through the normal routines of treatment, but also pressing for management of side effects like pain and nausea to increase patient comfort and expressing love for the patient every day. The Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky said “to live without hope is to cease to live.” Hope feeds the courage to keep going during challenging and uncertain treatments. Deborah J. Cornwall is an experienced advocate on behalf of cancer patients and their families. She is the author of Things I Wish I’d Known: Cancer Caregivers Speak Out, a new book based on interviews with 86 cancer caregivers and dozens of patients and survivors.

HOW TO

find residential living

a more close-knit way of life

A

ssisted 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.

owned

and

As with any community, it is important to visit the homes to talk with staff and the current residents and their families. Be sure that you are given specific information about caregiver training, community

amenities and costs. For more information, a comprehensive guide to selecting a residence can be obtained through the Consumer Consortium on Assisted Living at www.ccal.org.

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.

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. 102

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).

Hospice

how to find hospice care A 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.

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 involved. Choice is at the center of the hospice approach — a person faced with a life-limiting illness is encouraged to remain in control of his or her life. As care is usually provided in one’s home, many hospice patients live out their lives in the comfort of familiar daily routines, surrounded by their treasured possessions along with family and friends. However, hospice services may also be provided in long-term care facilities or inpatient hospice residential settings.

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 What Services are Provided? or less who may choose to continue their Hospice team members focus primarcurative treatments. ily 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. While family members learn how to properly care for the patient, information and support is also available to help everyone deal with the emotional, psychosocial and spiritual aspects of dying. Surviving loved ones will receive bereavement care and counseling from the hospice professionals. Adapted from Caring Connection’s and the American Cancer Society’s websites.

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.

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.

Hospice

understanding palliative care Palliative care (pronounced PAHLEE-UH-TIVE) helps a person remain comfortable by addressing issues causing physical pain, emotional pain or suffering. Hospice programs have provided palliative care for the last thirty years. Currently, these programs serve more than 1.2 million patients and their families each year. Now, this very same approach to care is being used by other healthcare providers, including teams in hospitals, nursing

facilities and home health agencies. To palliate means to make comfortable by treating a person’s symptoms from an illness. The goals of palliative care are to improve the quality of a seriously ill person’s life, and to support that person and their family during and after treatment. Hospice focuses on relieving symptoms and supporting patients with a life expectancy of months, not years. However, palliative care may be given at any

time during a person’s illness, from diagnosis on. Most hospices have a set of defined services, team members, and rules and regulations. Some hospices provide palliative care as a separate program or service. Information adapted from the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization’s Web site.

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 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 Medicare-certified 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 a limited number of skilled home visits. Costs for these services vary greatly depending upon coverage by Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance. Contact your local Office on Aging or State Department of Health to find out if there are funds from social services block grants available to cover home care costs.

hroughout her life, Mrs. Georgia Dunlap stressed the importance of education and earned both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in this field. During her studies at Winston-Salem State University in North Carolina, she became a tireless advocate for young people to get a degree from that University. As a result of her efforts, her only child, Eleanor Golden, graduated from that same school. In the spring of 2012, the family celebrated the 3rd generation to graduate from Winston-Salem when Georgia’s nephew marked his Commencement there. During the ceremony, Georgia was recognized for her advocacy! After her own graduation, Georgia taught school for over forty years, purely for the love of children. She was also involved in her church as a Deacon and a leader in the Missionary Department until her health began to fail. Today, she continues her 71-year membership with the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, as well as her

Although she was surrounded by family and friends in North Carolina, Eleanor was thrilled to welcome her mother into her home in Baltimore last year. Facing increasing health challenges,

Georgia knew she would be well cared for in her daughter’s home. Following a surgery the previous year, Eleanor was referred to P-B Health Home Care Agency for daily, in-home skilled nursing care. “I was very pleased with the quality of care from P-B and had services for several weeks while I convalesced,” she recalled. Because of this positive experience, Eleanor once again turned to P-B Health shortly after her mother moved in with her. “Reflecting on my previous care, I readily contacted Charlotte Bullock, Outreach Manager at P-B Health Home Care Agency,” she said. “She helped me obtain in-home personal care and chore services for my mother.” Since obtaining the home health assistance they needed, the two women have not looked back. Eleanor concluded, “PB Health has provided warm, responsible and caring nursing assistants in my home for the past three months, and I recommend them highly.” CC-5232 |7x4.8125 | 4C | 11/5/13

Selecting a Home Care Provider: A Checklist Before hiring a home care provider, you will want to learn more about their services, reputation and track record. The questions below will help you have productive conversations with providers and their professional references. How long has this provider been serving the community? Does this provider supply literature explaining its services, eligibility requirements, fees and funding sources? Many providers furnish patients with a detailed “Patient Bill of Rights” that outlines the rights and responsibilities of the providers, patients and caregivers. n How does this provider select and train its employees? Does it protect its workers with written personnel policies, benefits packages and malpractice insurance? n Are nurses or therapists required to evaluate the patient’s home care needs? If so, what does this entail? Do they consult the patient’s physicians and family members? n Does this provider include the patient and his or her family members in developing the plan of care? Are they involved in making care plan changes? n Is the patient’s course of treatment documented, detailing the specific tasks to be carried out by each professional caregiver? Does this provider take time to educate family members on the care being administered to the patient? n Does this provider assign supervisors to oversee the quality of care patients are receiving in their homes? If so, how often do these individuals make visits? Who can the patient and his or her family members call with questions or complaints? How does the agency follow up on and resolve problems? n What are the financial procedures of this provider? Does the provider furnish written statements explaining all of the costs and payment plan options associated with home care? n What procedures does this provider have in place to handle emergencies? Are its caregivers available 24 hours a day, seven days a week? n How does this provider ensure patient confidentiality? n n

Plan ahead: Secure your Valuables Before opening your home to any service provider, including in-home caregivers, you should take a few steps to make sure that you protect yourself and the caregiver. Taking these steps does not demonstrate a lack of trust in the provider. It is simply logical to make sure that you look after your assets. You should place any of the following items in a safety deposit box or other secure location: n n n

7. A  ssuming family is not available to

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.

HOW TO

make aging in place possible

professionals can help modify the home for your needs 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 con-

application of universal design concepts By Michael Leite, P.E.

U n

niversal Design calls for the construction and/or modification of living environments to make them accessible to individuals of all ages and abilities. Applying Universal Design concepts to real-world living spaces often requires careful planning and expert knowledge. Most Universal Design modification projects involve the retrofitting of an existing space with all of its limitations, rather than the construction of a new space in which the designer has an empty palette. To be more affordable, the design must accommodate the specific needs and disabilities of the intended occupant, rather than meeting the needs of the general population. Expert designers can create customized, functional spaces that improve the lifestyles of occupants by following the principles of Universal Design. The first consideration in creating a universally designed space is mobility. This involves the selection of flooring that allows the resident to move with-

out tripping and falling. It also includes the installation of grab bars in strategic locations to enable residents to get up and down and maintain their balance. Lighting is also an important consideration when designing accessible spaces. Individuals with impaired vision often require special task lighting, in addition to quality general illumination. A thorough analysis can determine both the amount of light needed and the best light source. Different individuals need different light sources and varying light levels to achieve optimum vision. Having addressed the issues of mobility and lighting, Universal Design specialists will next review bathroom fixtures and controls. The installation of a comfort height toilet with an integral bidet function can facilitate personal hygiene. The shower and bathtub should have accessible controls. Other fixtures, like the sink, should be positioned to allow residents to move about freely. Universal Design principles can also improve functionality in the kitchen. Appliances should be selected based on

the user’s physical limitations. This includes both the major appliances and the portable appliances. The design should be based on workflow in the kitchen, as well as personal safety considerations. When designing a space that is accessible for all, the final consideration should be the general living area. Using a variety of sensors, remote controls and alarms can ensure the comfort and safety of residents. From heating and cooling controls to universal remotes and emergency response systems, these electronic devices are easy-to-use and can help simplify daily tasks. Applying the principles of Universal Design can make the home environment safer, more accessible and more enjoyable to live in. With the help of a design expert, most individuals can retrofit their existing homes to incorporate features that will enhance their daily life. Michael Leite is a Test and Evaluation Engineer for DigiFlight, Inc. and co-owner of M. Quinn Designs.

late-onset depression & chronic medical conditions

A

dults with no previous history of depression can develop it late in life due to changes and losses they experience. Lateonset depression often occurs simultaneously with a chronic medical condition, happening for the first time at age 65 or older. Late-onset depression can develop due to physical limitations, decreased independence and the interruption of social networks that accompany a chronic medical condition or the onset of a new medical condition. For example, coronary artery disease is a risk factor for depression; while having depression can put you at risk for developing coronary artery disease. Depression is not a normal part of aging, but it is often not viewed as an actual medical issue. When seniors experience depression and a chronic medical condition together, the depression can aggravate the condition and interfere with successful treatment. The coexistence of major depression with chronic conditions is associated with more physician visits, emergency department visits, days spent in bed because of illness and functional disability. “Caregivers of seniors who have nev-

advocating home care trade association promotes in-home care

T

he 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 prestigious 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 Fo-

rums each year, which are attended by members and non-members. MNCHA is a 501(c) 6 non-profit incorporated in the state of Maryland. MNCHA members believe that in a time of rapidly escalating healthcare costs, patients deserve to be treated with dignity and be given a chance to receive care in their homes surrounded by their friends and loved ones. Home care reduces costs; provides quality services to patients at home; and assists family members in caring for the aged, disabled or injured at home. MNCHA is dedicated to: • Advocating for legislation which im-

proves 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.

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.

marci’s medicare answers Dear Marci, I was contacted by an unknown caller who said that he needed my Medicare number and bank account information due to changes in the Affordable Care Act. Are Medicare representatives allowed to call and ask me for that type of personal information?

 —Ralph

Dear Ralph, This is a very important question to ask, particularly since there is so much confusion surrounding the Affordable Care Act and Medicare. To answer your question, Medicare representatives will never call you and ask for personal information like your bank account number, Medicare number or Social Security number. People with Medicare do not have to give out their personal information to Medicare representatives as a result of the Affordable Care Act, also known as the health care law. In addition, Medicare private plans like Medicare Advantage plans and Medicare Part D plans cannot call and ask for your financial or personal information. In fact, plan representatives cannot call or email you if you have never been a member of the plan and you did not invite the plan to contact you.

 In general, be wary of websites, call-

marci’s medicare answers service. Star ratings range from one to five stars, with five being the highest score and one being the lowest score. Medicare also assigns plans one overall star rating to summarize the plan’s performance as a whole. New star ratings are released each fall. Keep in mind that a plan’s star rating is only one factor to look at when comparing different plans during Fall Open Enrollment, the time of the year that spans from October 15-December 7. During Fall Open Enrollment, people with Medicare can make any changes to their Medicare coverage, with their new coverage taking effect January 1 of the next year. Even though a plan has a high star rating, it may not be right for you. You should take a look at the plan’s costs, benefits and rules, before considering the plan’s star rating. If Medicare gives a plan only one or two stars for three years in a row, Medicare will consider the plan to be a lowperforming plan. In order to enroll into

a low-performing plan, you will need to call the plan directly to do so. You will not be able to enroll through the online Medicare Plan Finder tool. If you do enroll into a low-performing plan, Medicare should mail you a letter informing you about the plan’s low performance. You will be allowed to stay in the plan; however, you should make sure that the plan’s costs, coverage benefits and rules will best meet your individual needs in 2014. If you are in a consistently low-performing Medicare Advantage plan, keep in mind that you are entitled to a one-time Special Enrollment Period (SEP) throughout the year to switch to a plan with 3 or more stars or to a plan with no rating because it’s new. To use this SEP, you will need to call 800-MEDICARE directly. Lastly, people with Medicare are allowed a Special Enrollment Period (SEP) to enroll into a five-star Medicare Advantage plan or Part D plan once each calendar year. In order to use this SEP, the plan

must have an overall five-star rating and must be offered in your service area. To learn more about a particular plan’s star rating, you can call 800-MEDICARE or go online and visit www.medicare.gov/ find-a-plan. —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.

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. Resources The CDC is partnering with several other government agencies to promote a national action plan to prevent falls, which includes research, state grant funding, evaluation projects and information projects. 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.

Why Should These Retirement Communities be on Your Short List? Because they are accredited. Nationally, only 15 percent of all Continuing Care Retirement Communities

have earned the "seal of approval" from the non-profit CARF Continuing Care Accreditation Commission. The CARF-CCAC is the nation's only system for accrediting continuing care retirement communities.
