fees, specify a period of time in which the entrance fee will be refundable to the resident on a declining basis. For example, if an entrance fee under this arrangement declines at the rate of 1 percent each month, after 6 months 94 percent of the entrance fee is refundable. Partially refundable entrance fees guarantee a specific percentage of the refund that will be returned within a certain period of time regardless of the term of residency. For example, 50 percent of the entrance fee may be refundable upon termination of the contract or to the estate upon the resident’s death.

Full refunds offer just that, a full refund of the entrance fee. A fixed charge may be deducted before the refund is made, and the agreement generally states how long the refund is valid and under what conditions a refund is due. Entrance fees that offer full refunds are typically more expensive than those without refunds or those that are partially refundable or refundable on a declining basis.

Elder Law Providers Most CCRCs require payment of a one-time fee, usually called the entrance fee, before moving to the community. The entrance fee amount often depends on the level of care at the time of entry, type of housing chosen (with larger units requiring a larger fee) and agreement type. The entrance fee allows the CCRC to offer lower monthly fees and provide for the future needs of residents. State regulations can impact the terms of the entrance fee and in some states, refunds are called rebates. Entrance fees are typically structured in one of three ways: Declining scale refunds, also known as amortizing entrance

Cover Story

When Bill and Boots Cassel moved to Waverly Heights, they were passing on to their children a treasured gift they received from Bill’s parents. They moved to a continuing care retirement community so they could enjoy retirement—and so their children would never have to worry about them.

The Gift that Keeps Giving By Christy Brudin

W

illiam (Bill) Cassel and Dr. Lillian (Boots) Cassel received a treasured gift decades ago. They recently passed that gift on to their three sons. This gift is not a family heirloom, a prized antique, or expensive jewels. It is not even a cherished memory or an exotic experience. It is a truly priceless present: Bill and Boots moved to Waverly Heights in Gladwyne, Pennsylvania, a continuing care retirement community (also known as a life plan community). Waverly Heights is a nationally accredited, non-profit community nestled on a 63-acre former estate in the heart of Philadelphia’s Main Line. For more than 30 years, the community has been known as a premier retirement destination in southeastern Pennsylvania. Waverly is

22

recognized for its award-winning grounds with gardens, majestic trees, and sprawling lawns. Residents enjoy spacious apartments and villas, along with many amenities including fine dining, fitness programs, artistic pursuits, educational programs, music, lectures, art exhibits, and social programs. Bill and Boots met in the library at the University of Delaware. She was studying computer science, and he was majoring in electrical engineering. Their chance meeting quickly turned into a courtship. The couple was married one year before Boots graduated. Boots holds one of the oldest undergraduate degrees in computer science—from 1968. She went on to attain her Master’s degree in computer science as well. She then spent 10 years teaching part-time while the couple’s children were young. Boots later went back to school and received her Ph.D. 800-394-9990 | retirementlivingsourcebook.com


Cover Story

Bill and Boots are both members of the Waverly Wine Club, a group of residents who meet monthly to share and sample various wines.

Boots is now a professor of computer science at Villanova, a position she has held for more than 30 years. She is currently serving as the chair of the Computer Science Department. As an electrical engineer, Bill spent the bulk of his career in the electric power industry. He worked for a local power provider in Delaware for 15 years before making a career change. “It was my midlife crisis,” Bill said jokingly of the big shift in his career. “I did technical consulting for the electric power industry for 27 years.” Bill traveled widely during his time as a consultant. He advised companies on updating and expanding the electrical grid in places around the globe, ranging from Asia and Australia to Europe and Latin America. Six years ago, after Bill retired, The Cassels realized it was time to start thinking about their retirement plans seriously. retirementlivingsourcebook.com | 800-394-9990

Bill and Boots already knew they would continue a family tradition and give themselves and their family the ultimate present by moving to a retirement community. “The question was never whether or not we would move to a retirement community; it was just where we would move and when we would move,” Bill explained. “We knew that my parents gave us all an enormous gift, and we wanted to give that same gift to our children.” Bill’s parents moved to a continuing care retirement community in 1985. They were literal pioneer residents in the then-emerging industry. Bill and his family quickly realized that their parents had done a wonderful thing. First and foremost, they had removed the burden of taking care of them from their children. They also eliminated all the challenges that come with long-term home ownership.

Cover Story

“We moved young, and it was a wonderful decision. We have the energy and the health to enjoy everything that Waverly Heights has to offer. We are not missing a thing.” — Boots Cassel, Waverly Heights resident

“We visited them at their community over the course of 30 years and saw how happy they were,” Boots said. “We also saw that when Bill’s dad passed away, his mother was so well taken care of.” The Cassels looked at several communities and made exhaustive spreadsheets charting the pros and cons of all their options. “We just kept coming back to Waverly,” Boots recalled of their search process. “We visited several times, and we loved the grounds and the atmosphere immediately. We felt at home here.” Because they always knew they would carry on the legacy that Bill’s parents began, Bill and Boots had the luxury of a long search and decision-making process. “We really had plenty of time to think about leaving the large house, which can sometimes be traumatic,” Boots said. “The more we thought about it, the more we realized that we gained living space when we moved to Waverly. We may have a small private space, but we gained a whole campus. We have a fitness center, a pool, a wood shop, a garden, a greenhouse, and a beautiful lounge. We have so much that we didn’t have before.” Since moving, Bill and Boots have taken full advantage of all that Waverly has to offer. They are both members of the Waverly Wine Club, a group of residents who meet monthly to share and sample various wines. At each meeting, the members vote on their favorite wine. The following month, the community chef prepares a meal that pairs with that wine. A longtime woodworker, Bill is active in the community’s wood shop. “That was actually one of the selection criteria for us when we were searching for a community,” explained Bill. “My father was a woodworker, and I have been doing it for some time, and I wanted to continue.” Bill has also become involved in many of the active committees at Waverly. He chairs the Resident Tales group, the Music Committee, and the Movie Committee, and he is a discussion leader in the Coffee and Conversation group. He was recently elected to serve on the Residents Association Board. “My life has changed quite a bit since we moved here,” he said. “I have met a lot of people and have so many friends. We lived in our house for so long, but we had limited contact with our neighbors. This is just a place where you dive right in.” Although she is still working full time, Boots has become retirementlivingsourcebook.com | 800-394-9990

engaged in the Waverly community as well. She is the co-chair of the community garden, where she enjoys bringing the seeds out of the greenhouse in the spring and nurturing them to maturity throughout the summer. She also plays bridge regularly. “I am not involved in as many activities as Bill, but I have noticed a big difference,” Boots said. “For me, it is the house— not having the burden of the house anymore. Now, when there is a storm, we don’t have to worry about it. We just focus on the things we enjoy.” Because they moved when they were just 71 and 70, Bill and Boots have been able to fully enjoy all that Waverly has to offer. “Everyone we talked to here told us not to wait as long as they did to move. We didn’t,” Boots said. “We moved young, and it was a wonderful decision. We have the energy and the health to enjoy everything that Waverly Heights has to offer. We are not missing a thing.” Bill and Boots were grateful for the gift that his parents gave them when they moved to a retirement community. They knew then that they would pass that same gift on to their sons some day. Since moving to Waverly Heights, the Cassels and their family no longer need to worry about home maintenance or their future care needs. Instead, they can focus on spending time with family and friends and pursuing activities they enjoy. For Bill and Boots, moving to Waverly Heights has been the gift that keeps giving—to themselves and to their family.

Friends You Can Only Find Here

O

n tours of Dunwoody Village, visitors often remark that it just “feels different” from other communities. That’s because our residents are warm and welcoming, and our employees are gracious and helpful. And it’s not just for show—the more time residents spend here, the more they come to see that friendliness, openness and inclusivity are an intrinsic part of the Dunwoody culture. That starts the moment people walk through the front door. Often, the first person they’ll encounter is Peggy Bodkin, who has worked at Dunwoody for 37 years, most recently at the reception desk. “Dunwoody Village is a wonderful, pleasant place to work. Everybody is kind and has a story to tell,” Peggy says. In fact, she feels so at home that she herself will be moving in over the coming year, as she downsizes from a 6-acre farm. Once prospective residents sign on, a 29-member Hospitality Committee greets them. “I was impressed with the work of the Hospitality Committee when I first arrived. It meant so much to me that I offered to join and ended up becoming committee chair,” says Anne Harrison. “I make an initial welcoming visit to new residents in their homes and then introduce newcomers at the resident meeting. Committee members reach out over the course of the first year to invite the new residents to dinner, and we have a lovely meal for all the newcomers at the end of the year,” Anne continues. “Never in my life have I enjoyed a volunteer job quite so much—the committee is great to work with, and I love that we are continuing this important tradition of making people feel at home.” Some residents arrive already knowing friends or having connections in the Village, which fosters a sense of familiarity.

“There are no cliques here at all, which is extraordinary.” —Fran Northrup, Dunwoody Village Resident

Others find that Dunwoody offers a refreshing sense of change—with new friends who have an array of diverse backgrounds and experiences that make the daily social exchange richly rewarding. No matter how they come to Dunwoody, all residents quickly make friends. “Almost every evening we dine with different people,” says Diane Ladner, who moved into a Penrose Carriage Home last year. “Or we call up someone to come attend one of the excellent programs, such as recently when we had David Kim, the Philadelphia Orchestra’s Concert Master here, giving a concert. It’s a fascinating mix of people who have done very interesting things with their lives.” The convivial atmosphere is apparent to everyone who lives at Dunwoody, including resident Fran Northrup who visited 14 communities before choosing Dunwoody Village as her new home. “There are no cliques here at all, which is extraordinary,” she says. “Because of the camaraderie and support at Dunwoody, people in the art studio encouraged me to learn oil painting. That camaraderie and support makes Dunwoody Village a very rewarding place to be.”

At Dunwoody Village, the residents are warm and welcoming, and the employees are gracious and helpful—creating a convivial atmosphere that is immediately apparent.

Livable Neighborhoods Finding the best place to call home What makes a neighborhood livable? The answer depends largely on your wants, needs, personal preferences and stage of life. You may want ample green space. Or perhaps you value being close to public transportation. Maybe you prefer easy access to certain facilities or amenities: a pool, a hospital or a community center. There are neighborhoods that meet all these needs—and a whole host of others. With so many neighborhoods to choose from, how do you select the perfect one to meet your specific needs? Senior living communities provide one answer. They give older adults access to centralized amenities, but they are age restricted. If you are looking for a neighborhood that better fits your current lifestyle but isn’t age specific, there is an innovative new tool that can help you find the best community for you. Developed by AARP, the Livability Index (www.livabilityindex. aarp.org) is an easy-to-use online tool that scores neighborhoods and communities across the U.S. based on the services and amenities that have the largest impact on individual lifestyles. The livability index ranks communities in seven major categories: housing, neighborhood, transportation, environment, health, engagement and opportunity. Users can simply type in an address, ZIP Code or community to search the index and view overall livability scores. The index can also be customized, so users can adjust category importance. For instance, if you are most concerned about access to affordable housing, you can increase the importance of the housing metric. Or, if the most important factor to your family is health care options, you can adjust the tool to place more weight on the health metric. Finally, the tool allows users to compare up to three locations. This will help you gain perspective on how your current neighborhood or potential neighborhood compares with others. You can quickly see if there are other communities that may be a better fit for your family or loved one—whether they are in

the next town or across the country. Policymakers can also use the Livability Index to improve their communities. By fully understanding their scores, decision makers at the local level can set priorities that will help make their communities more livable in the long run. They can easily and quickly see where their communities excel—and where they fall short. This will allow them to advocate for policies and practices that can dramatically improve the lives of residents. Ultimately, the Livability Index is a powerful tool that can help people of all ages find the best neighborhoods for them. Whether you are a local official, a member of a young family, or an active older adult, you can now identify the best neighborhoods in the regions that you are most interested in living. Armed with this information, you can then target

A Livable Location These fictional examples demonstrate how the Livability Index can serve as an important tool for consumers. Getting Around a Problem Anne has found a neighborhood that seems perfect for her. It has access to plenty of amenities, an engaged population, and great health care. However, it scores low in the area of transportation because it is not near public transportation options. Anne decides to look for apartments in this area that offer complimentary shuttle services to public transportation. Using the Livability Index and her own research, Anne finds the perfect community. Seeking Engagement A former educator, Phil wants to live in a multigenerational community that offers plenty of opportunities for social and civic engagement. When searching the Livability Index, he places more weight on the engagement and opportunity metrics. While the community he finds may not rank high in every category, he knows that as long as these two needs are met, he will be satisfied in his new neighborhood.

Feature Story

Embrace “Interdependent Living”

O

ne of America’s core values is independence. We pride ourselves on our ability to drive anywhere we like, build a business, and define our own destinies. As you age, your desire to remain independent wanes as your health and mobility changes. It is not long before you realize that you are dependent on others—for companionship, transportation and support. You may need help to go to the grocery store or to doctors’ appointments. Instead of being independent like the Lone Ranger, you discover you are interdependent on others. Retirement should not be a lonely time. You can enjoy interdependent living when you move to a maintenance-free senior living community that provides the activities, socialization and support you need during retirement. There are many clear benefits of moving to an independent living facility where the sense of community is strong. These include: 1. Make New Friends: If you take a moment to think about it, your life probably included a spouse, children, friends and relationships. As you age, a loved one will pass, neighbors might move, and your children and grandchildren become busier. You may find yourself alone. An independent living facility is the perfect place to make new friends. Most, if not all, residents find themselves in similar situations, so relationships are easily developed. 2. Transportation Help: You may be unable to get to the grocery store or to appointments on your own. Instead of retirementlivingsourcebook.com | 800-394-9990

relying on busy family members or paying high taxi fees, a retirement community can get you where you need to go. Group outings to grocery stores and shopping are often scheduled, so even if you are able to get around yourself, you don’t have to go it alone. 3. Help When You Are Ill: When you become ill, your family may not be able to take time off work to nurse you back to health. Continuing care retirement communities offer staff and assistance with all levels of care. 4. Learn New Things: One way to keep the gray cells working well is to acquire new knowledge. When you live alone, you may not have the same opportunities to learn through shared talents, scheduled activities, classes and presentations. Living your life by your own choosing can include living interdependently in a Wesley Enhanced Living community. We have the staff, the facility, and the activities to let you live life on your terms and still have the benefits of making new friends, learning new things, and receiving any necessary help. Call or stop in to one of our six Wesley Enhanced Living locations in and around Philadelphia to discover why our seniors love it here and how our trained staff and vibrant community members are here to support your overall wellbeing! Our Sales Managers will be happy to chat with you and share more information about our independent living communities.

Feature Story

The Best of Cousins By Christy Brudin

May Collins (left) and Kay Cullen are the best kind of cousins—best friends. They never remember a time when they weren’t together and retirement is no exception. They are both residents at The Villa at Florham Park.

Y

our first best friends are often your cousins. For Mary Ann (May) Collins and Kathleen (Kay) Cullen, that was certainly true. And it still is. Now residents at The Villa at Florham Park, May and Kay never remember a time when they weren’t together. The Villa at Florham Park is a part of Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey (see sidebar). The community offers assisted living care, memory care and nursing care. Residents enjoy a beautifully landscaped campus; spacious, private apartment-style suites; and comfortable common areas. Originally a church, The Villa at Florham Park was a private retirement home for the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth for more than 80 years. The campus features beautiful Romanesque architecture and interior spaces that are welcoming and homey. May and Kay grew up in Brooklyn, New York. “We have been best friends since we were born,” May said. “We always remember being together.”

36

When May got married, Kay was her maid of honor. After retiring, May and Kay bought a condo together in Long Island— becoming roommates as well as best friends. “As time went on, things changed,” Kay recalled. “I don’t have other family, but May has two sons. We started to think that we would be better off if we moved closer to them.” At the time, one of May’s sons was living in Connecticut and the other was in nearby New Jersey. “We decided that it was time to sell our condo,” Kay said. “Otherwise, we were going to have to put a lot of money into it.” May and Kay looked at various properties in both Connecticut and New Jersey, but when they found The Villa at Florham Park, they immediately felt a connection. “It is only five minutes away from one of May’s sons,” Kay said. “And the chapel was a big deal for both of us. It is a beautiful, large chapel, and they offer mass every day. We were immediately impressed.” The cousins were also struck by the unique and inviting 800-394-9990 | retirementlivingsourcebook.com


Feature Story

atmosphere at The Villa. “I remember that all the other places we looked at didn’t feel like a home. They felt more like hospitals. This felt like home,” May recalled. Kay agreed that the community felt like home from the moment they entered. She quickly noticed the upgraded accommodations as well. “The rooms here are just very nice, nicer than any place we saw. There is more closet space and more storage,” she said. “We had a good feeling from the minute we pulled up to this beautiful building.” Since moving to The Villa last year, May and Kay have found a community that is both beautiful and engaging. “There are activities here to suit people with different types of interests and abilities. I just don’t have time to do them all,” said Kay. “We go to bingo when they have it, and we really enjoy the singing programs,” May added. “There are so many things that we enjoy about living here.” It was clear from the beginning that The Villa would have no shortage of social opportunities. “The day we moved in they had an ice cream social,” Kay recalled. “The weather was perfect, and it was really nice. That was a great start.” Avid readers, both women take full advantage of The Villa’s expansive book collection. “There is a great library here, and there are books on every floor,” May said. Of course, May and Kay still spend plenty of time together. The women watch TV together every evening and share most of their meals. When the weather is nice, they walk out to the community’s gazebo every day. For May and Kay, retirement means more quality time together and less worries about home maintenance or future care needs. They are now living in a safe, comfortable, affordable environment. And while they have made new friends at The Villa at Florham Park, they are incredibly grateful that they were able to make this move with their best friend—each other. May and Kay have always been—and will always be—more than simply the best of friends; they are the best of cousins.

After looking at various retirement communities, May and Kay knew that The Villa at Florham Park was the right choice for them.

A Fulfilling Mission Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey is a not-for-profit organization that serves residents statewide who hurt, who are in need, or who have limited choices—regardless of religious background or affiliation. The Villa is one of four properties in the agency’s senior healthcare division, and it is open to the public. “The Villa offers supportive services in a more independent environment, giving residents more individuality in their daily living,” explained Chief Operating Officer Beth Sparling. Beth has a unique perspective on Lutheran Social Ministries of New Jersey’s mission. She is not only a 20-year veteran employee of the organization; she is also a product of its mission. Beth was adopted through the agency. She went on to attain a degree in social work with a specialty in senior care, and she started working at the agency’s continuing care retirement community, Crane’s Mill, in 1998. “I really am a result of our mission, and I am honored to be a conduit for it now,” she said.

Complete Care for Lung Cancer

5 things to know about the lung cancer program at Nazareth Hospital Just hearing the words lung cancer can be stressful and frightening. And it can be confusing when you’re suddenly faced with scheduling tests and making choices about your care. Nazareth Hospital offers a lung cancer program that includes screening, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care. Highly skilled and compassionate providers help people with lung cancer through every step of their journey with this complex disease. Here are five key facts to know about the program if you or a loved one are ever diagnosed with lung cancer. 1. A navigator will guide you. Often the first step in a diagnosis of lung cancer is finding something suspicious on a screening test. When that happens, a cancer nurse navigator will help you understand the next steps, such as whether you need a biopsy or other tests. “The nurse navigator is there with you from the very beginning, and all the way through your journey,” says Michele Zappile-Lucis, DPT, OCS, Administrative Director of Oncology at Mercy Health System. 2. A lung cancer team will discuss your diagnosis. A tumor board made up of cancer experts meets to discuss each person’s case and the best treatment options. And you can meet with these experts too. They include: • Medical and radiation oncologists • Radiologists

• Pathologists Once your care plan is in place, the nurse navigator is there again to help set up your treatments. “We hold your hand and walk you through every step,” Michele says. “You’re never alone.” 3. You have access to the latest lung cancer treatments. When caught early, lung cancer can often be treated with minimally invasive surgical options. These options allow patients to spend less time in the hospital, and experience less post-surgery pain, which can help speed recovery. Other treatments for lung cancer available at Nazareth Hospital include: • The most up-to-date chemotherapies and radiation therapies, including targeted radiation that spares healthy tissue. • Access to clinical trials for leadingedge treatments through the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Network at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. 4. You’re supported all the way. People being treated for cancer can experience many forms of distress—from fear about the future to worries about doctor bills. “We want you to focus on getting well,” Michele says. “We don’t want you to have to worry about these other issues. Let us worry for you.” That’s why Nazareth’s lung cancer program includes a full array of support services, such as a dedicated oncol-

A survivorship program can help you stay well. Patients continue to receive support even after treatment ends. The nurse navigator completes a full survivorship care plan for each patient and helps schedule all necessary followup visits. The plan include tips for healthy eating and exercise. “We’re your trusted health partner for life,” Michele says.

On the Lookout for Lung Cancer Screening test can help save lives

Did you know lung cancer might not cause any symptoms until it’s in its later stages? That’s why it’s important to know whether you’re at risk—and get screened if you are. Who should be screened? According to Rajan Singla, MD, a Jefferson medical oncologist with Mercy Hematology/Oncology at Nazareth Hospital, annual lung cancer screening is recommended for people who: • Are 55 to 74 years old with no signs or symptoms of lung cancer. • Smoke now or who quit within the last 15 years. • Have a tobacco smoking history of at least 30 pack years. (A pack year equals smoking 20 cigarettes every day for one year.)

What is the screening test? “The Nazareth Lung Cancer Screening Program uses low-dose CT chest scans to check for signs of cancer,” Dr. Singla says. “Studies show that this screening reduced the risk of dying from lung cancer by 20 percent in patients age 55 to 74 who had a smoking history of at least 30 pack years.” Medicare and most insurance plans pay for the screening, but you do need a prescription, so ask your doctor. When lung cancer is found early, treatment is more likely to be effective. And the chance of survival goes up. Depending on what your scan shows, you may need additional tests. Dr. Singla says about 25 percent of lung CT scans do show something suspicious. But, he adds, “Most of the time, it’s not cancer.” He also offers this important reminder: Screening is not a substitute for quitting

“We’ve lived, laughed and loved in our home for more than 30 years. I never thought our own bathroom would become the source of such worry. As Bill got older, he had trouble lifting his legs over the sides of the tub, and I was afraid he would fall and hurt himself. That’s when I called P.J. Fitzpatrick Bath Solutions. Their tub to shower conversion along with their safety package, that places handrails and even a seat in the shower, took the worry out of our day.

Understand Estate Planning Elder law attorneys can help Estate planning means much more than preparing a Last Will and Testament or tax planning for the disposition of your assets upon your death. Estate planning is the process of accumulating and disposing of an estate to maximize the goals of the estate owner. The goals of estate planning typically include making sure the greatest amount of the estate passes to intended beneficiaries, often including paying the least amount of taxes. Estate planning must also provide for administration and protection of assets during an individual’s lifetime and for decisionmaking in the event of a disabling illness. Any complete estate plan should contain: 1. A Last Will and Testament, 2. A durable health care power of attorney naming an agent (and an alternate agent) responsible for medical decisionmaking, 3. A living will or other advance directive giving instructions concerning the type of care one wishes to receive (or avoid) in the event of a terminal illness, and 4. A durable financial power of attorney naming an agent (and an alternate) responsible for asset and financial management if one is unable to do such things for oneself. Estate planning may also include the creation of trusts. Estate planning is an opportunity to make wishes known and to determine what person(s) will be responsible for

carrying out those directives. You are able to state your preferences concerning the type of care you receive, what types of medical care you do not wish to receive, and can authorize someone to act as your agent in carrying out those wishes. Should you fail to do such planning, there may be confusion as to what your wishes might have been and who you would have preferred to act as your decisionmaker. In fact, without such information, your wishes may never be known. If you do not leave a Last Will and Testament, your assets will be distributed according to the laws of intestate succession in your state. There are laws in each state governing the rights of surviving spouses, heirs and next of kin in the absence of a Last Will and Testament. Probate Probate laws, practice and costs vary from state to state. A qualified Elder Law attorney will be able to advise you as to the probate laws, practices and costs in your state. What You Need To Know In preparing an estate plan, it is essential that all of your assets are considered. You should do a complete inventory of all that you own before contacting your estate planner. Your estate consists not only of your home, your car and your bank accounts. Your estate also includes the value of life

insurance policies, investments that you may own (including those held in joint tenancy with other persons), your IRAs and other retirement accounts, and any other assets over which you can exercise control. It is extremely helpful for you to have a centralized and secured record of all of your financial accounts; insurance policies; credit, debit or loan accounts; safe deposit box; and account IDs and passwords. You will need to make decisions about what to include in your estate plan. First, you should determine who will inherit your property upon your death. You

Resources Elder Law

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. Whether you get a referral or try someone new, keep your opinions open to change. A friend may have had a good experience, but your case is different and you need to decide for yourself. 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 in-

quire about the attorney’s certifications and memberships with professional organizations. Finally, be sure that you are clear on the specific costs as well as the attorney’s billing methods. 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 and are there alternative courses of action? n What are the advantages and disadvantages of each possibility?

n How many attorneys are in the office and who will handle your case? n How long has the attorney been practicing? n What percentage of the attorney’s practice is devoted to this area of law? Does his or her practice emphasize a particular area of elder law? n How much experience does the attorney have with cases like or similar to 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? If not, who will go to trial for you? 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 Are fees computed on a flat or hourly rate and how often does the attorney bill? n What additional out-of-pocket expenses will be incurred (such as copying, postage, court, messenger and phone fees)? n What is the estimate of the cost involved to resolve your problem? n Will the attorney require a retainer (money placed in a trust account before services are rendered)?

The Many Benefits of Adult Family Mediation By Sig Cohen Families facing disagreements on issues such as caring for aging parents, encouraging an older adult to stop driving, or equitably distributing trust proceeds are increasingly turning to adult family mediation to settle their differences. Having a neutral third party help a family resolve their disputes is more attractive than the delay, cost and distress of litigation. When family members forge a path forward together, there are no winners or losers. As a result, an elder can look forward to his or her family having less rancor and more mutual respect. Adult family mediation offers families the opportunity to air their concerns in a “safe space.” Sessions are confidential. The process is simple: An adult family mediator confers one-on-one with parties before they meet in a “plenary” session. When they convene, the mediator explains how the discussion will move forward. Then the mediator invites each party (or their attorney) to share their concerns and goals. When a mediator facilitates the discussion, it’s more likely that the parties will listen to the other side and speak without interruption. If an exchange becomes too heated, the mediator will suggest taking a break. Throughout the process, family members are challenged

to: (1) identify the issues dividing them, (2) come up with options to settle them, and (3) collaboratively carry out the terms of what they’ve agreed to. Mediators do not give legal advice. They recommend parties seek counsel from a qualified elder attorney. Nor are they therapists. Again, they suggest family members meet with a professional in that field. Mediation is future focused. While the process cannot repair the past, it provides an avenue to more peaceful, cooperative family relations in the future. Mediation also affords family members conflict resolution tools, so they can

settle future disputes without a neutral third party. Once they’ve successfully settled their case through mediation, families are more confident in their capacity to resolve future conflicts themselves. Adult family mediation brings out the best in people. When family members engage in mediation, their relationship usually moves from friction to traction and from deadlock to determination to put their issues behind them and create more resilient family bonds.

Estate planning ... Continued from page 53 must also be certain that your spouse or heirs are capable of managing financial affairs. If capacity or vulnerability is an issue, you may want to name a trustee to handle financial affairs for him or her. You have to designate an Executor or Personal Representative to administer your estate. An alternate Executor or Personal Representative should also be appointed. Special arrangements may be needed if there are particular family issues, such as a second marriage by either spouse. You will also need to list any specific gifts you want to make to family or non-family members and/or to charities. Once these decisions are made and your inventory is completed, your attorney will be able to advise you as to the best technique to use in planning your estate. You should consider your preferences concerning health care options and decide who will be your decision makers, and do the same with regard to your finances in the event of a disability. Finally, you should give thought to the difficult questions of what type of care you would want or not want in the event of terminal illness. If you have special desires concerning disposition of your remains, such as burial in a certain place or possible cremation, these should be brought up during your planning conference as well. These are complicated and personal issues. The advice of a qualified Elder Law attorney is essential to protect your financial health and welfare and to ensure that your health care wishes are known and carried out. The Role of the Elder Law Attorney Elder Law attorneys who specialize in estate planning are trained and experienced with wills, trusts, powers of attorney, advance directives or living wills, and the intricacies of estate and inheritance taxes. They may recommend accounting services, financial planners or insurance purchases, but they do not earn their fees by selling such products.

In addition, Elder Law attorneys are sensitive to the special needs of elderly clients and their families. Be certain the attorney you choose has such experience and training. Attorneys will ask clients for a great deal of information and will request original documents such as deeds, account statements and insurance policies.

similar information is part of thorough planning. All of the information provided to an attorney is, of course, confidential and may not be disclosed to others without your permission.

Don’t Wait Until It’s Too Late to Execute a Power of Attorney By E. Garrett Gummer, III, Esquire (CELA), Gummer Elder Law A durable power of attorney is an extremely important estate planning tool, often more important than a will. If you become incapacitated due to dementia or some other reason, this crucial document allows a person you appoint (your “attorney-in-fact” or “agent”) to act in place of you (the “principal” ) for financial purposes. The agent under the power of attorney can quickly step in and take care of your affairs. But in order to execute a power of attorney and name an agent to stand in your shoes, you need to have capacity. Regrettably, many people delay completing this vital estate planning step until it’s too late and they no longer are legally capable of doing it. What happens then? Without a durable power of attorney, no one can represent you unless a court appoints a guardian. That court process takes time and costs money, and the judge may not choose the person you would prefer. In addition, under a guardianship, the guardian may have to seek court permission to take planning steps that he or she could have implemented immediately under a simple durable power of attorney. It is up to you who you appoint as your agent. Some persons who come to mind are your spouse, a child, another relative, or a close friend. Remember the person you choose will have substantial power

over your financial and legal affairs. Therefore, it is important that your agent be responsible and trustworthy. Because you need a third party to assess capacity and because you need to be certain that the formal legal require-

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 for such a move, but whatever your timetable, you should get a calendar solely for planning your strategy.

Sort Through Items Donating and recycling your belongings Donating 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 working 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 dona-

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

owners are ready to begin the process of preparing to sell their home. A qualified agent’s comprehensive assessment of the condition and marketability of the home can decrease selling time and increase selling price. Specialized agents can also help clients prioritize repairs and locate qualified professionals to complete such projects. Utilizing the help of professionals to prepare for a sale can ultimately result in a selling price that reflects the top market value for the home. Step Two: Packing and sorting Items should be sorted into distinct categories: keep/move, give to family, donate to charity, and throw away. The initial list of items to keep will likely be larger than the new space can accommodate. Moving professionals, however, can offer advice by taking into account their client’s personal tastes, the financial and sentimental value of possessions, and the new floor plan. Step Three: Moving For many, moving day is simple and rewarding due to comprehensive, customized real estate services provided

prior to the sale of the house. On moving day, real estate professionals can recommend trusted companies to help with the physical aspects of moving, while providing assistance with the job of unpacking and setting up the new home. Challenges become choices As the challenges of moving fade due to increasingly helpful professionals, people are left with nothing but choices—where to move, when to move, what to take and how to decorate the new home. Individuals considering a move are no longer faced with the difficult questions of how to market their homes and move their belongings, as there is help available every step of the way.

Housing Preferences of Boomers Based on a nationwide survey of recent and prospective home buyers conducted in 2015, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) new study, Housing Preferences of the Boomer Generation: How They Compare to Other Home Buyers, discusses how various designs influence the home purchase decision. The study also covers the location, features and size of the homes consumers want, and the influence of certain events and people on the decision to move to another home. “This survey is a great resource for building professionals, as it provides an inside look at the things boomers, and other generations, are looking for in today’s homes,” said Rose Quint, NAHB’s Assistant Vice President for Survey Research, and one of the study’s authors. “As the housing market continues to recover, more consumers are in the position to purchase a home, and it’s important for builders to have this knowledge about their customers.” Here are some of the findings on what home buyers want: • The majority of all buyers (65%), and boomers in particular (63%), would like to buy a single-family detached home. • Most home buyers (64%) prefer a single-story home, but there is great

variation by generation: Millennials (35%), gen X’ers (49%), boomers (75%) and seniors (88%). • Fifty-eight percent of home buyers want a full or partial basement, but the preference declines with age: Millennials (77%), gen X’ers (67%), boomers (50%) and seniors (43%). • When asked if they would buy a home without a living room, 37% of buyers say they would, 42% would not and 21% are not sure. The share of buyers willing to part with this formal space falls steadily with age: Millennials (43%), gen X (40%), boomers (37%) and seniors (26%). And here are some of the findings on

what most buyers do not want: • Few buyers (8%) or boomers (7%) prefer a central city location. About two-thirds prefer a home in the suburbs (close-in or outlying) and just over a quarter prefer a rural area. • Only 14% of buyers overall (and 13% of boomers) are willing to pay more for a home out of pure concern for the environment.

Fair Housing Act of 1968 Celebrating 50 years of equality in housing By Laura Blenman, Realtor® During the history of our country, some persons have placed restrictions on property based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, or national origin. Generally, these restrictions are void and unenforceable, with limited exceptions for particular types of religious housing and housing for older persons. The enactment of the federal Fair Housing Act came only after a long and difficult journey. Since the 1966 open housing marches in Chicago, Dr. Martin Luther King’s name had been closely associated with the fair housing legislation. From 1966-1967, Congress regularly considered the fair housing bill, but failed to gather a strong enough majority for its passage. On April 11,

1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act of 1968— seven days after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Title VIII of the Act is also known as the Fair Housing Act of 1968. The 1968 Act expanded on previous Acts and was meant as a follow-up to the Civil Rights Act of 1964. It prohibited discrimination concerning the sale, rental and financing of housing based on race, religion, national origin, sex, handicap and family status. The law has been expanded to include marital status, age, sexual orientation, and gender identity. The Fair Housing Act covers all housing related transactions, including rentals, sales, mortgage lending, homeowner’s insurance, advertising,

zoning & land use, and appraisals. The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is charged with enforcement of the Act. It issues regulations and institutes investigations into discriminatory housing practices.

Fall Prevention Strategies to Help Secure Safe Homes By Mimi Lewis, Jewish Family and Children’s Service (JFCS) Older Adult Social Worker and Community Engagement Coordinator There is abundant evidence that the health outcomes for older adults following a fall are bleak. As a result, older adults often suffer from anxiety about falling, which, ironically, increases their risk for a serious fall. They tend to restrict their movement out of fear. This, in turn, raises the risk of a serious fall as older adults become more anxious and less active, causing their muscles to atrophy and their mobility and coordination to decrease. Tentative movement, also a consequence of this anxiety, makes for missteps as well. The good news is that there are numerous ways to address this issue. There are a variety of providers available to help with support and strategies, including JFCS. JFCS is on the forefront of offering holistic support and strategies to help our seniors stay safe and steady on their feet. To prevent falls, seniors and their families should: • Conduct a professional home assessment to ensure that the living space is safe and equipped for an older adult, for example, install shower bars and railings. • Consult with an Occupational Therapist and/or Physical Therapist to assess movement and develop safe practices for climbing and descending stairs, rising from a chair, getting out of bed, etc.

• Utilize assistive devices as needed. With these services, older adults can conquer their anxieties and reduce the risk of serious injury. Even more important, they can remain active and engaged in order to optimize their quality of life.

• Reduce anxiety through therapy and other techniques. This has an overall physical, mental and emotional benefit. • Stay connected to the community. • Boost self-confidence through activity and productivity.

STANDARDS OF PRACTICE AND CODE OF ETHICS The Aging Life Care Association (ALCA) developed the standards of practice and code of ethics to guide Aging Life Care Professionals in their daily professional and business practices. Additional information, as well as the full code, is available on ALCA’s website: aginglifecare.org.

THE CODE OF ETHICS PROVIDES: Accountability to our Clients ALCA members recognize diversity in our society and embrace a multi-cultural approach to support the worth, dignity, potential and uniqueness of each client. The Code of Ethics acknowledges the vulnerable population we serve and makes explicit the highest standards of practice. Accountability to the Public The Code of Ethics sets a national standard for the professional practice of Aging Life Care™. It defines for the public the ethical responsibilities expected of ALCA’s members and the organization’s role in maintaining the highest standards of practice and promotion of ethical behavior. Education of Aging Life Care Professionals ALCA recognizes the diversity of the experience and education of its members and the needs of members for guidance in both their professional and business roles, and thus the Code of Ethics was developed to guide members in each of these roles. A Framework for Analyzing & Resolving Ethical Dilemmas The Code of Ethics offers a framework for ethical decisionmaking when conflicts arise in either the practice or the business of Aging Life Care. Assistance in Reviewing Complaints In ALCA’s Peer Review Process, the Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice serve as the basis for assessing and resolving ethical or business practice complaints against members in their practice of Aging Life Care.

THE CODE: ETHICAL PRINCIPLES AND STANDARDS OF PRACTICE SUPPORTING THESE PRINCIPLES Integrity An Aging Life Care Professional is honest, diligent, and accountable in the provision of service. An Aging Life Care Professional always acts in a manner that is consistent with the professional values stated in this Code. Loyalty and Responsibility An Aging Life Care Professional is trustworthy and dependable in all aspects of both professional and business relationships. Promoting Benefit and Avoiding Harm An Aging Life Care Professional promotes clients’ interests, values, and welfare in order to maximize benefits and avoid harm. Respect for Clients’ Rights and Dignity An Aging Life Care Professional treats clients with respect, as complete individuals with their own history, narrative, and unique cultural identity. Justice An Aging Life Care Professional behaves in a just and fair way in all professional and business relationships. An Aging Life Care Professional does not promote or sanction any form of discrimination such as discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or socioeconomic status.

ary and Susan, both retired educators, moved from Doylestown, PA to Cornwall Manor Retirement Community in Lebanon County in 2013. “After being involved with both family and friends who waited too long and then were too overwhelmed to make plans and decisions, we knew we wanted to make a different choice and move right after we retired. We investigated a number of options, but Cornwall Manor stood out as the best. Once we decided on Cornwall Manor, we were anxious to move in and that proved to be one of our best decisions. The sense of freedom in living here is so refreshing. Our home is perfect for us and the people, both residents and staff,

are consistently wonderful. There are many different programs, activities and volunteer opportunities from which to choose. We can be as active (or inactive) as we want. Our children are happy for us. We were committed to the move,

but living at Cornwall Manor has far exceeded our expectations.” The Bitners moved so they could enjoy the opportunities available to them at Cornwall Manor (Gary is a runner and enjoys the wooded trails, and Susan volunteers for a variety of activities.) Cornwall Manor has a variety of lifestyle options on our beautiful 200 acre campus – from new homes at The Woods and new Carriage House apartments to single and duplex homes and apartments on the Buckingham Campus. And if health care is ever needed, there is a Visiting Physicians Office, home health care, outpatient therapy, personal care and a skilled nursing center for short-term rehab and long term needs. Cornwall Manor residents have priority access to our 5-star rated Health Center.

Resources to Meet Every Need No matter your age or what stage of life you find yourself in, there is never any reason to face life’s changes and challenges alone. Enlist the help of a professional and get the help you need. Some of the more prominent categories of professionals are detailed below. Aging in Place Solutions Need to update your home to meet your changing needs? Want some help running errands? Have medical needs that require special equipment? There are individuals and businesses available to meet all your needs and allow you to remain safely in your home. Successfully aging in place frequently requires additional assistance from professionals to ensure that all daily needs are met and the home environment remains safe. Assistive Technology In today’s connected world, we are all accustomed to turning to technology for solutions. Help managing the challenges that come with aging or disability is no different. There are many technologies that can help you with all types of needs—from staying in contact with family to hearing better. Technology professionals can help clients find specific technologies that can improve their living environments and their lifestyles.

Downsizing/Moving Solutions Moving is one of life’s most monumental tasks. Add in the fact that many seniors have been in their homes for two, three, or more decades, and moving becomes even more daunting. Whether you need to declutter and downsize in preparation for a move to a retirement community, or just have your home deep cleaned to provide a safer living environment, there are professionals available to help. When it comes time to sell the family home, there are also professionals available to prepare the home and ensure that you get top market value. Medical Solutions Sometimes medical needs require the help of a specialist or a business that

caters to specific conditions or illnesses. Professionals can help you with a wide range of needs—from vision services to hospice care to mental health care and everything in between. Planning Solutions Planning ahead for financial and legal needs is important at every stage of life, but never more so than during retirement. Financial and legal needs frequently become more complex with age. You may need help with tasks ranging from paying bills and managing paperwork to estate planning and managing Medicaid. Professionals are available who specialize in each of these areas and can make meeting your financial and legal needs easy.

Understanding Medicare Know the Options and the Coverage Medicare provides important benefits for most Americans who are age 65 and older. When enrolling in Medicare, changing plans or determining benefit coverage, consumers need to fully understand the many different types of Medicare plans. The process of selecting the best plan begins with learning more about all the options. Medicare’s Alphabet Soup Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people who are 65 or older, certain younger people with disabilities, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease. Medicare is composed of several different parts that cover specific services. Medicare Part A, or Hospital Insurance, covers inpatient hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care and some home health care. Medicare Part B, or Medical Insurance, covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, medical supplies and preventive services. Medicare Advantage Plans, also known as Medicare Part C, are health plans offered by private companies that contract with Medicare to provide subscribers with all their Part A and Part B benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans include Health Maintenance Organizations, Preferred Provider Organizations, Private Fee-for-Service Plans, Special Needs Plans, and Medicare Medical PERSONAL CARE • MEMORY CARE Sav-

ings Account Plans. Most Medicare services are covered through the plan and aren’t paid for under Original Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage Plans offer prescription drug coverage. Medicare Part D, or prescription drug coverage, adds coverage for medications to Original Medicare, some Medicare Cost Plans, some Medicare Private-Feefor-Service Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans. These plans are offered by insurance companies and other private companies approved by Medicare. Additional Options Beyond the Medicare plans outlined above, there are also additional options available to individuals who meet specific criteria. Medicaid is a joint federal and state program that helps with medical costs for some people with limited income and resources. Medicaid programs vary from state to state, but most health care costs are covered if an individual qualifies for both Medicare and Medicaid. Secondary Insurance may also be used to pay medical costs. For instance, an individual or their spouse may still be working and therefore be eligible for employee health insurance. Additionally, some retirees qualify for group health insurance, or retiree coverage, from a former employer or union or a spouse’s former employer or union.

If a beneficiary has Medicare and other health insurance or coverage, different rules apply to determine when and how much each “payer” will cover. Medicare may be the primary, or first, payer or a secondary payer depending on the specific plans and circumstances. Getting Coverage: Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage Plan Medicare coverage is generally obtained in one of two ways—through Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) or through a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C). Some people get additional coverage, like Medicare Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D) or Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap). Original Medicare includes both Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance). Enrollees have their choice of doctors, hospitals and other providers that accept Medicare. Beneficiaries pay a premium for Part B coverage, which, in 2016 was $104.90 each month. They will also generally pay deductibles and coinsurance amounts. Many enrollees opt to purchase a Medigap Policy to cover some of these costs. If an individual is already receiving Social Security benefits or benefits from the Railroad Retirement Board, they will generally automatically begin receiving Parts A and B the first day of the month they turn 65. If an individual is not already receiving retirement benefits,

Visit the Social Security website for more information about enrollment: www.ssa.gov/medicare/apply. A Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) also includes both Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage. However, the coverage is provided by private insurance companies approved by Medicare, not by Medicare directly. Advantage Plans function much like the HMO (Health Maintenance Organization) or PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) plans that are offered by most employer-based health care groups. Advantage Plans must cover all of the services that Original Medicare covers except hospice care. Original Medicare covers hospice care even if the beneficiary is enrolled in a Medicare Advantage LionsGate_PAWinter16_17 rev1.pdf 1

The

Plan. In all types of Medicare Advantage Plans, enrollees are always covered for emergency and urgently needed care. These plans typically require enrollees to use plan doctors, hospitals and other providers to avoid paying more or all of the costs for care. Enrollees pay the Part B premium, which was $104.90 per month in 2016, and a monthly premium for the Advantage plan. Enrollees may also pay copayments or coinsurance for covered services. Coverage and costs vary by plan. Medicare Advantage Plans usually include prescription drug coverage (Part D) through the plan. Plans may also offer extra coverage, like vision, hearing, dental and/or health and wellness programs. Getting Additional Coverage: Prescription Coverage and Medigap Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D) are run by private companies approved Medicare. Enrollees who 1/15/18 by 11:13 AM

Individuals enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, cannot use Medigap Insurance to pay for plan costs like copayments, deductibles and premiums. In fact, it is illegal for anyone to sell Advantage Plan customers a Medigap policy unless they are switching back to Original Medicare.

deductibles. These Medigap Policies are offered by private companies. When beneficiaries have a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicareapproved amount for covered health care costs. Then, the Medigap policy pays its share. Individuals interested in purchasing a Medigap policy should buy one during their 6-month Medigap open enrollment

period, which gives them the opportunity to buy any Medigap policy sold in their state, regardless of health problems. This period automatically starts the month that individuals are 65 and enrolled in Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance). After this enrollment period, some beneficiaries may not be able to buy a Medigap policy. If they are able to buy one, it may cost more.

Review Coverage Enrollees don’t need to sign up for Medicare each year. However, each year all beneficiaries have a chance to review their coverage and change plans. Free, personalized health insurance counseling is available through local State Health Insurance Assistance Programs (SHIP). For more information or assistance, visit shiptacenter.org.

A Haven for History and Art The 3,500-acre Valley Forge National Historical Park is the jewel of Montgomery County. Over 2,000 soldiers died at Valley Forge, but no battles were ever fought. In 1777, Gen. George Washington chose to make a winter encampment for his troops in the valley. Safe from attack, the soldiers expected to spend the winter regrouping after several devastating losses. However, no sooner were Washington’s stone headquarters completed than the troops began to

Thriving in Retirement

M

argaret Brubaker could calculate the toll that time was taking on her well-trained body in miles not walked and repetitions not completed during her daily workouts. “I went to the gym five days a week,” she recalled recently. “Treadmill, rowing machine, you name it. I walked every afternoon. I was in prime shape.” She may have been the first to notice her diminished capacity—but she was the last to acknowledge it. “My husband and I noticed that she was beginning to have some issues, both physical and mental,” said Mary-Jean Huntley, Brubaker’s only child. “She needed help. I was afraid we were too far away to be responsive. But she loved her independence, and she was fairly adamant that she didn’t want to move in with us.” It’s a dilemma that many families face: how to help aging loved ones adjust to their diminished capacity, while respecting their personal sovereignty. Margaret Brubaker’s move last fall to Foulkeways at Gwynedd, a Quaker-run continuing care retirement complex in Gwynedd, Pa., was the culmination of a process that had its contentious moments but actually strengthened the bond between mother and daughter. “My mother always valued her freedom and her ability to be social on her terms,” Mary-Jean said. “She loved walks and reading, and she loved her solitude.” Mary-Jean added, “She says she can’t live (in Philadelphia) where we live. So we found a woman to help out at her house (in Easthampton, Long Island). But she resisted and found a way to discontinue the service.” Next, the family tried a care facility near Margaret’s Easthampton home. But it didn’t satisfy mother or daughter. They were a few days from contracting with another facility when a blood clot put Margaret in the hospital last Thanksgiving, prompting a sudden change of course. “That put me out of balance,” Margaret recalled. “I couldn’t get around. I had no choice. “ But, like many people facing an uncertain future, Margaret’s concerns about her next phase of life ran far deeper than a loss of independence. “I know what happens when you move away and lose your connections,” she said. “You age very quickly. You can lose your sense of purpose and each day seems the same as the day before. You fear being left alone with strangers who won’t want to be bothered.” Margaret and her daughter had seen too many places where people in wheelchairs are parked in front of televisions. She refers to this arrangement as “cheap baby-sitting.” Fully aware of what they didn’t want, Mary-Jean did the research that led them to Foulkeways. The final decision was a family project. “My daughter looked for places with the best ratings,” Margaret said. “She gathered a lot of information.” retirementlivingsourcebook.com | 800-394-9990

After a series of health challenges, Margaret Brubaker was struggling to regain her active lifestyle. At Foulkeways at Gwynedd, she has enjoyed a fresh new start, complete with engaging activities and delicious food.

Mary-Jean added, “We did make a full commitment for a month. After that, she was able to make it with us. We did everything we could to make a smooth transition. We bought her an outfit. We rented a van, filled it with her favorite coconut water and cookies, and had her ‘mom music’ playing. We wanted her to know we were all in this together.” Now, Margaret couldn’t be happier. “She loves it. She likes getting her hair and nails done and reading her books,” MaryJean said. “I think she fell in love with the food. She calls me almost every day to thank me.” Margaret confirms her daughter’s assessment. But she is honest enough to admit that this story could have had a very different ending. “If my daughter had forced me, I would have dug in my heels,” said Margaret with a smile. “But I was ready.”

Beaumont at Bryn Mawr: Music to Their Ears

W

hen Marvin Weisbord and his wife Dorothy moved to Beaumont at Bryn Mawr in 2014, he brought with him his passion for music. With it came the weekly jam sessions with the 10 or so members of his Wynlyn Jazz Ensemble, and numerous scheduled and impromptu performances of their trademark “Great American Songbook” repertoire. If a resident at Beaumont, like Marvin, has a particular interest or passion, and if it resonates with and would benefit the community at large, it is quickly promoted to the community calendar. Beaumont is unique in that it is owned and governed by residents, and residents collectively inform all aspects of community life – including the scale and scope of cultural, educational, entertainment, and social events. Beaumont features musical events for a number of reasons. They engage residents very differently from, for example, the ongoing Speaker Series or the mini-courses and classes. Music is inclusive and accessible to everyone. Music elicits emotion, and emotion sparks memories of specific places and times. Play Ev’ry Time We Say Goodbye or

Over the Rainbow, and even residents with varying degrees of memory loss have the ability to remember the lyrics and melodies, and to conjure up the sights, smells, and emotions of listening to those songs long ago. In a recent study, Dr. Jane Flinn, a neuroscientist and researcher at George Mason University, concluded that music and singing appear to allow older adults to activate the brain and retrieve old memories in ways that bypass the hippocampus – the area of the brain most affected by dementia, including Alzheimer’s. Studies at Johns Hopkins also have shown that both music-listening and musicmaking have a profound and positive influence on older adults’ perceptions about the quality of their lives.

800-394-9990 | retirementlivingsourcebook.com


That explains why Marvin’s passion was a perfect fit – and a hit. Begun as an experiment, the jam sessions took off after he invited the band to play one Saturday evening in the Beaumont Bistro. He referred to the event as “The Supper Club,” evoking images of Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby films to announce the program. Residents flocked to hear songs from the golden age of Hollywood and Broadway.

in the large Beaumont Room. Five principal musicians from the orchestra spoke in turn about their instruments (including one famous Stradivarius violin); when and where they were made; their history; notable musicians and performances over the ages; and how they create an astounding range of sounds. Afterward, the five musicians joined to perform one of Richard Strauss’ “tone poems” for chamber orchestra, Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, to illustrate how, together, their instruments are able to tell a complete story. As the audience filed out, Marvin was elated. “I looked around the crowd and people were fascinated. A perfect way to make music accessible to everyone. It answered questions we all have about instruments and making music. I myself took piano lessons when I was young without much conviction or appreciation. It wasn’t until I was 70 that I started to take serious lessons with professional jazz players, and now, at 86, I can’t imagine my life without music.”

Jennifer Montone, Principal Horn of The Philadelphia Orchestra, introduces her fellow chamber musicians. Photo: J. Kolbe

“It took me months to realize something important was happening,” recalled Marvin one afternoon. “I am not a professional entertainer. My friends and I in the Wynlyn Jazz Ensemble play these well-known tunes for the sheer joy of it. It doesn’t matter how perfect or polished our renditions are, I see new friends and neighbors tapping their feet and mouthing the words. And we end our performances with a sing-along to make sure everyone gets into the act.” Musical tastes and interests vary, however. Beaumont is fortunate to be located on the Main Line, with easy access to central Philadelphia and one of its cultural gems: the worldrenowned Philadelphia Orchestra. Many residents are long-time subscribers and supporters, and the Beaumont bus provides regular transportation during the concert season.

To incorporate music into everyday life at Beaumont, residents of all backgrounds and abilities are invited to join the Beaumont Singers, the in-house choral group. Soloists and featured performers from Astral Artists, a Philadelphia nonprofit mentoring program for young, promising classical musicians, are presented on a monthly basis. Simulcasts of the Metropolitan Opera are screened in the theater every first-Saturday. Marvin summed it up: “I’m grateful for all the cultural and educational opportunities here at Beaumont. But especially for our little musical oasis that draws together friends, neighbors and family. It is also, on special evenings when I and the band find our groove, a place where – with a little help from George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers and Larry Hart – we access our youth, and know again the precious moments of sadness and joy that define our lives.”

A few residents and season ticket holders recently had a brainstorm: Can we bring members of the orchestra to Beaumont to tell us more about the individual “voices” of the orchestra, how the instruments are played and the sounds are produced at the hands of virtuoso musicians? A novel concept was born. In typical Beaumont fashion, they proposed it to The Philadelphia Orchestra, and worked with key administrators and musicians to bring an epic musical event into being. On a Sunday afternoon in late October, invited guests and prospective residents from Beaumont’s “Future Residents Club” joined 200-plus residents

O

welcome. Glencairn, once a private residence, is now a museum of religious art and history. Cairnwood serves as an educational, cultural and hospitality center. Tours of both buildings and the cathedral are available on a regular basis. Cairncrest is currently being used as a private office building for the Church and is not open to the public. The Bryn Athyn Cathedral The most notable feature of this Gothic and Romanesque style cathedral is the stained glass windows. As the major benefactor of the project, famous industrialist John Pitcairn and his family helped to shape the vision for the structure. Raymond Pitcairn, John’s son, was also a major player in the construction of the cathedral. In fact, it was Raymond who encouraged

the workers and artisans involved in the construction to express their creativity. That is why the church has so many non-traditional details, as well as a true artistic flair. These craftsmen were dedicated to creating stained glass windows that duplicated those found in medieval European churches. They followed the old techniques of making hand-blown glass in an onsite studio and glass factory. Glencairn Formerly the home of Raymond and Mildred Pitcairn, Glencairn is now a museum of religion, which showcases religious art and artifacts from a variety of cultures and time periods. Pitcairn supervised the construction of Glencairn after the Cathedral, and it was also built in the Gothic and Romanesque style.

The Bryn Athyn Historic District is a National Historic Landmark comprised of three family residences and a cathedral.

The buildings were constructed between 1892 and 1938 and are true works of art, from the unique architectural details to the authentic stained glass windows. Bryn Athyn was founded as a religious community by a Christian denomination known as the New Church. The Bryn Athyn Cathedral is still a place of worship for the New Church, but visitors are

The Pitcairn family occupied the home until Mildred’s death in 1979. Following her passing, the building and all its contents were donated to the Academy of the New Church. The Academy moved its own collection and combined it with the Pitcairn’s extensive collection of religious art and artifacts to establish the museum that is still in operation today. The museum continues to educate visitors about religious life and experiences through the ages using art. Cairnwood Family patriarch and successful industrialist John Pitcairn lived in Cairnwood estate. This grand country home is a Beaux-Arts mansion and an excellent example of the architecture during America’s Gilded Age. A leading architectural firm of the time, Carrere and Hastings, designed Cairnwood with significant input from Gertrude Pitcairn. Cairnwood features a unique octagonal tower with a high-pitched roof, which

is home to the family chapel. This chapel is a clear representation of the importance and strength of John Pitcairn’s spiritual beliefs. John lived in his beloved home until his death in 1916. His son Raymond also lived in the home for a short time, as did one of his granddaughters. The home was donated to the Academy of the New Church in 1980 and stood vacant for nearly 15 years before it was opened as a designer show house. The home is now an educational, cultural, and hospitality center. Bryn Athyn Cathedral, Cairnwood Estate and Glencairn Museum all offer tours on a regular basis.

For the first time, users of the site can now be in total control of viewing where they want to go and what they want to see before they step foot in Montgomery County.

The National Memorial Arch at Valley Forge was constructed in 1914 to honor George Washington and his troops, who endured bitter winter months here during the American Revolution.

all 487 square miles of Montgomery County, a region whose landscapes range from bustling urban centers to wide open natural vistas. As a center for history, art, culture, shopping, family-friendly activities, a vivid dining scene, an appealing brewery/winery vibe and a host of wellappointed hotels, the county was the perfect setting for an all-encompassing approach to attracting visitors. When exploring the King of Prussia Mall on MontCo 360, visitors can step inside the tech-savvy Tesla Motors store and experience what it’s like to sit in the driver’s seat of one of their premium electric cars. Parents looking for a place to take their kids to unwind can click on Arnold’s Family Fun Center located in Oaks, Pa., and click to walk through the massive arcade and see the bowling alley and indoor go-kart tracks. There are also plenty of hotels and restaurants to explore as well as Manatawny Still Works, a popular distillery located in Pottstown, Pa. that you can tour virtually before you arrive.

For history buffs, MontCo 360 showcases places like Valley Forge National Historical Park. Clicking your mouse or using your finger - over the screen whirls the landscape and opens the viewer to the beautiful trees, fields of waving grass, statuary and honorifics associated with a key Revolutionary War location. One of the highlights of touring the park using MontCo 360 is the opportunity to navigate the museum of Continental Army artifacts within the Visitor Center, which displays the treasures in an interactive way. Montco 360 is available at the VFTCB website: valleyforge.org. Photography on the site is constantly being refreshed and new attractions are being uploaded. The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board is a nonprofit, membership-based sales and marketing organization that actively promotes the Valley Forge area and Montgomery County, Pa., as a convention site and leisure visitor destination.

HOUSING Active Adult

Stay Surrounded With Activity Active adult communities keep residents moving For those unfamiliar with available living options, the image of the “senior community” may need a serious makeover. Many individuals still think of retirement communities as dreary “facilities” with an institutional feel. This could not be further from the truth today. Active Adult communities, also known as leisure communities, are populated with adults who have come to live there by choice. In fact, individuals often choose to move into an active adult community as soon as they hit the requisite age – usually around 55. The amenity filled communities are often adjacent to golf courses or other recreational facilities. Not Just Active, but Pro-Active Active Adult community residents say they are making the move because they want to enjoy a hassle-free lifestyle, not because of deteriorating health. Simply put, it is their choice. Most active adult communities are not equipped to provide increased care or health-related services. However, several active adult residences are part of a larger Continuing Care Retirement Community, where residents can count on extended care if they develop health problems. This continuum of care allows active adults to make the most of the present while planning for the future. Gaining Independence Active adult communities often have a full range of entertainment options, and most of the costs are included in the living fees. They are ideal for retirees, but are not limited to those who have stopped working. Many residents continue to put in hours at work, while others fully explore long-lost hobbies or new interests. Homes in these communities are constructed of low-maintenance building materials and feature virtually maintenance-free yards. This way, residents can spend more time filling their schedules with favorite hobbies

Active Adult communities seek to meet the needs of Baby Boomers by providing environments in which individuals can enjoy the many amenities of a community lifestyle.

and group activities, rather than tending to home-related tasks. Tennis courts, swimming pools, hiking trails, biking and jogging paths, and fitness centers are among the many features generally available within the community. Instead of navigating traffic when going to the gym or beauty shop, residents can often walk a few blocks to an on-site facility. There is also something to be said for having an elegant dining room in the community, although cooking in one’s private residence is still an option. What to Look For You can start by requesting an information packet from every active adult community you are considering. Make sure to read it carefully, and keep them all organized in a folder or file cabinet. Once you have narrowed down your

options by perusing the brochures, schedule a visit to each community. While you are there, take thorough notes and make a list of pros and cons for each one. 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. If you attended college or had to consider employment in a new area, remember the criteria you used in making that decision. This is no different. 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 come to enjoy for decades.

Active Adult HOUSING

Boomers Retiring at a Quick Rate Most ready to retire, already collecting social security The first set of Baby Boomers, those born in 1946, continue to be myth-busters, according to the study, Healthy, Retiring Rapidly and Collecting Social Security: The MetLife Report on the Oldest Boomers. The data, from the company’s MetLife Mature Market Institute, says the earliest Boomers aren’t necessarily “working ‘till they drop,” as was predicted. More than half (52%) of the 1946 Boomers are now fully retired. Of those, 38 percent say, “I’m ready,” while 17 percent cite health reasons and 10 percent attribute a job loss. Twenty-one percent remain employed full-time and 14 percent are working part-time. The figures from the MetLife Mature Market Institute 2013 study represent a big jump since 2007 and 2008 when just 19 percent of the oldest Boomers were

retired and a significant leap from the 45 percent retired in 2011. The Institute has studied the oldest boomer cohort on numerous occasions, most recently in 2012 with Transitioning into Retirement: The MetLife Study of Baby Boomers at 65 and The Early Boomers: How America’ s Baby Boomers Will Transform Aging, Work & Retirement. The 2013 study follows the group as they’ve moved from age 62 to 67, their finances, housing status, family lives and their views on generational issues. For instance, though the majority of retirees say they have less income than when they were working, lower income does not always equal a lower standard of living, as only 20 percent felt theirs had declined. “As oldest Boomers dive into retire-

ment, even though some have been forced to do so earlier than expected, they seem to be ‘Feelin’ Groovy,’ as this group would have said during their formative years,” said Sandra Timmermann, Ed.D., director of the MetLife Mature Market Institute. “They are poised to remain active and engaged. As their nests empty, they seem to be largely feeling healthy and positive. On the negative side, a good half of this group may not have achieved their retirement savings goals and are not confident about paying for the next phase of their lives.” Among further findings: •8  6 percent are collecting Social Security benefits; 43 percent began collecting earlier than they had planned. •O  nly 14 percent of the oldest Boomers are working part-time or seasonally; 4

Housing Options Life Plan Communities

Life Plan Communities Offering diverse lifestyle options Life Plan Communities are properties offering a combination of living options for older adults. These communities offer an active lifestyle for residents, as well as a wide array of amenities and services. Life Plan Communities were formerly known as Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs). Following a two-year research and review process, a task force led by LeadingAge and Mather LifeWays, identified a new name for CCRCs that would resonate with the boomer target audience. The new name better reflects the communities and their residents—individuals who are active, engaged and focused on the future. Living options available at Life Plan Communities may include independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing services. These different levels of care are all offered on a single campus. Residents have the option to have all their current or future healthcare needs met without ever leaving campus. Life Plan Communities afford residents endless opportunities to remain active and involved. These communities generally appeal to young, healthy older adults. Amenities vary widely but often include swimming pools, fitness centers, gardening areas, and golf courses or putting greens. Additionally, residents have access to hundreds of clubs and activities—from art classes to yoga classes and from drama clubs to walking groups. Residents are also very involved in the operation and management of Life Plan Communities through resident boards or councils.

Finally, Life Plan Communities are generally integrated into the larger community. With active residents, these communities can focus on giving back and acting as a socially responsible neighbor. Life Plan Communities give older adults the freedom and security to live active, healthy lives. They are the perfect option for individuals who want to plan ahead for future care needs, while focusing on enjoying every day.

Living options available at Life Plan Communities may include independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing services. These different levels of care are all offered on a single campus.

Life Plan Resident Rights A model Bill of Rights The National Continuing Care Residents’ Association (NaCCRA) developed a model bill of rights that applies to all residents of Life Plan Communities (formerly known as continuing care retirement communities). Model Bill of Rights The residents of a Life Plan Community have the right to: 1. Expect full, prompt and complete fulfillment by the management of those services delineated in their contracts. 2. Establish, organize, fund, develop by-laws for, and operate a resident association. 3. Freely assemble, with or without the participation of management and staff. 4. Select and appoint, in accordance with the resident association’s own by-laws, at least three members of the corporate governing board. 5. Be kept informed by the administration, on an ongoing basis, about all significant issues of management, which directly affect residents’ well-being or their financial investment. 6. Full disclosure of the finances of the corporation, presented at least on an annual basis.

Raise issues concerning their own well-being, their quality of life, and the sufficiency of their involvement in community life and governance, and to advocate openly for issues of concern to them. 13. Start up and operate informal activities of any kind, so long as they do not impact negatively on the lives of others, violate the law, interfere with

other activities in community space and facilities, or require resident association funds. 14. Organize and seek resident association recognition of a new committee or other resident activity needing community facilities or resident association funds. 15.

Life Plan Communities Housing Options

Understand Entrance Fees Knowing the options when paying for life plan communities Most Life Plan Communities require payment of a one-time fee, usually called the entrance fee, before moving to the community. The entrance fee amount often depends on the level of care at the time of entry, type of housing chosen (with larger units requiring a larger fee) and agreement type. The entrance fee allows the community to offer lower monthly fees and provide for the future needs of residents. State regulations can impact the terms of the entrance fee and in some states, refunds are called rebates. Entrance fees are typically structured in one of three ways: Declining scale refunds, also known as amortizing entrance fees, specify a period of time in which the entrance fee will be refundable to the resident on a declining basis. For example, if an entrance fee under this arrangement declines at the rate of 1 percent each month, after 6 months 94 percent of the entrance fee is refundable. Partially refundable entrance fees guarantee a specific percentage of the refund that will be returned within a certain period of time regardless of the term of residency. For example, 50 percent of the entrance fee may be refundable upon termination of the contract or

to the estate upon the resident’s death. Full refunds offer just that, a full refund of the entrance fee. A fixed charge may be deducted before the refund is made, and the agreement generally states how long the refund is valid and under what conditions a refund is due. Entrance fees that offer full re-

funds are typically more expensive than those without refunds or those that are partially refundable or refundable on a declining basis. Excerpt from Consumer Guide to Understanding Financial Performance and Reporting: Enhancing People’s Lives in Continuing Care Retirement Communities.

Housing Options Life Plan Communities

A Guide to Choosing the Right Contract By Kelly Hagler You want to move to a senior living community, but that’s just the first of many decisions you’ll need to make. No matter which community you move to, you’ll have to sign a contract that stipulates the services you’ll receive and what you’ll pay—now and down the road. This guide can help you navigate the different contracts you may encounter as you embark on your search for a new home. Continuing care retirement communities, also known as life plan communities (CCRCs), offer offer multiple levels of care all on one campus. This setting is generally attractive to seniors who like to plan ahead. CCRCs are most useful for seniors who can come in at the independent living level and move through higher levels of care as needed over time. “The CCRC is a promise of future care, inclusive of the various levels,” says Marc Herrera, vice president of skilled nursing administration and risk management at be.group, an operator of Southern California retirement communities. “All other types of senior living are month-tomonth arrangements.” Most CCRCs are nonprofit organiza-

tions with business models surrounding a mission of senior care and service, says Daniel S. Ogus, executive vice president and chief operating officer at be.group. All levels of care in a CCRC are usually provided by the same management. CCRC contracts are more complex than other types of senior living agreements because they offer more services. There are three common types of CCRC agreements that typically secure longterm living accommodations, services and health care for residents. 1. Type A (Life Care Agreements) According to the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities, Type A contracts include overall housing, residential services (amenities) and unlimited health-related services. Type A contracts provide a sense of stability, as future costs are much more predictable regardless of any changes in needed services or care. Residents pay a much larger entrance fee compared to other contract types, but the monthly fee is flat through all levels of care. 2. Type B (Modified Agreements) As with Type A, Type B contracts

include housing and residential services. Unlike Type A, Type B does not cover all future health care needs but does offer discounted or waived rates for those services. While Type B contracts have a lower entrance fee than Type A, should an increase in care become necessary, it would be the resident’s responsibility to cover costs. 3. Type C (Fee-For-Service Agreements) Like both A and B, Type C contracts cover housing, residential services and health care. “Basically, it’s pay as you go,” says Herrera. Residents pay a smaller entrance fee in the beginning. Then, if you don’t need to use higher levels of care, there is no additional cost to you beyond your monthly service fee for using amenities like transportation or activities. While Type C contracts will save you on up-front costs, the resident risks the potential for large costs down the road if there is a sudden need for care.

munity is a big decision that requires a lot of thought and even more research. Here are some important steps to take before signing a contract. 1. Consult a financial adviser. Joining a senior living community is a serious investment. Spend time with your trusted financial adviser. “Your biggest pitfall is not understanding how health care, especially Medicare, works in our country,” says Ogus. “How much money do you have and how much will you need? Understand what benefits you’re getting from Medicare as well as your retirement packages.” 2. R  esearch the organization and management. The financial stability of the community as well as the continuity of management are two essential factors to vet thoroughly. Is the management able to make improvements regularly? Will you be working with the same staff regularly, or is there a high turnover rate? 3. Understand which services are covered. Asking about guaranteed services will alleviate many of those “what if ” questions: What if you get dementia? What if you become debilitated? Ask management specific questions about what’s covered in your contract beyond care services. Understand how they charge for specialized programming and activities. 4. Find out how refunds work. Signing a CCRC contract is a big decision—so what if you change your mind? 5. Ask about a benevolence program. Many nonprofit CCRCs offer benevo-

lence programs if a resident exhausts his or her financial resources. “Say someone has lived in the community for 15–20 years and now she cannot afford to pay at that higher level—this program subsidizes her as she continues to live at the same level,” says Herrera. 6. Make sure your voice will be heard in the future. Some communities have their own associations, and residents have the right to be represented on boards. “It’s collaborative management,” says Herrera. “Many communities are managed with a lot of advice from residents.” 7. Determine what role your family will play.

“We can’t share information with children if the resident doesn’t give us permission to do so,” says Ogus. “If a resident has a condition change, we hope he or she will allow us to share with one of their adult children.” Make sure your family understands the financial commitment and how your contract works. 8. Explore, visit, ask questions, repeat. “We want [potential residents] to make the right decision,” says Ogus. “We want them to choose us, but we’d rather them not choose us if it’s not the right decision for them. An unhappy resident can spoil it for the rest of the community. It should be a lifestyle decision, not a sentence.”

Independent Living Housing Options

Independent Living Communities Providing 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. Most independent living communities provide a full range of activities such as shopping trips, outings to cultural events, organized gatherings and an array of clubs. Some communities also have tennis courts, swimming pools and other amenities. Independent living communities typically offer a variety of meal plans. Residents also have the option of preparing their own meals. Most independent living communities do not offer health care services. However, some communities 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.

Most independent living communities are rental communities, but some are condominiums or single-family communities in which residents purchase their 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. Consumers should carefully research the independent living community options in their target areas or neighborhoods. After requesting and reviewing information from communities,

Many independent living communities provide a range of activities that promote social contact among residents. prospective residents should plan onsite visits to each community they are considering.

Access Benefits for Veterans Help is available for service members Individuals 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.

Only by enrolling in the VA health care system can Veterans guarantee that comprehensive services will be available when and where they are needed. 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

retirementlivingsourcebook.com | 800-394-9990

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 Continued on page 120

Access Benefits ... Continued from page 119 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. 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

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 Atten-

dance 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 information is available at www.va.gov/healthbenefits and www. myhealth.va.gov or by calling the VA tollfree at 1-877-222-VETS (8387). Information adapted from http://www. va.gov/geriatrics/ and from Health Care Benefits Overview 2012, a publication of the VA available at http://www.va.gov/ healthbenefits/resources/epublications.asp.

HOUSING Assisted/Personal Care

Assisted Living/Personal Care Offering needed assistance and rewarding activities Assisted living/personal care communities offer a vital option for older adults who need some assistance with daily living. While the specific amenities will vary, all assisted living communities offer basic services, including meals, supervision and security, and help with personal care needs. For many seniors, the help available at an assisted living facility can allow them to continue to live their best life. In most states, assisted living communities are registered, licensed or certified by an appropriate department or agency of the state that has a process for issuance of initial licenses and for renewing existing licenses. This process provides basic protections for consumers. Residents of assisted living communities are generally seniors who need some assistance with basic activities, frequently called the activities of daily living (or ADLs). Some communities may accept residents with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. In fact, some communities may specialize in serving individuals with specific medical conditions, including dementia. A few communities serve individuals of any age with developmental disabilities. When reviewing assisted living communities, consumers should ask about any specializations the community may have.

The services and activities provided in assisted living communities help to promote the quality of life and independence of the residents. One key offering is 24-hour supervision of the residents and the property. Resident safety and security is a priority at all assisted living communities. All communities also offer three meals a day in a group dining room. However, dining options can vary dramatically in terms of the meals available and the costs associated with meal plans. Finally, all assisted living communities offer personal care services, also known as help with the ADLs. These services include assistance with bathing, dressing and toileting. Other services and activities available at some assisted living communities include: • Medication management, or assistance with self-administration of medicine • Coordination of services by outside health care providers • Assistance with arranging medical, health, and dental care services • Social services • Transportation services • Outdoor areas for walking or gardening • Supervision and assistance for persons with Alzheimer’s or other dementias

and disabilities • Recreational and spiritual activities • Exercise and wellness programs • Laundry and linen service • Housekeeping and maintenance • Individualized services While assisted living communities do provide a high level of care, it is important to consider what is not provided at these communities before selecting one. Assisted living communities are a bridge between living at home and living in a nursing home. Assisted living communities do not typically provide the level of continuous skilled nursing care found in nursing homes and hospitals. For instance, if a prospective resident needs constant care, a nursing home may be a more viable option. There is no set standard for assisted living accommodations. Therefore, options can vary greatly from one assisted living community to the next. For instance, some communities offer private rooms featuring kitchenettes and private bathrooms, while others offer shared units or shared bathrooms. Consumers must consider the prospective resident’s personal needs, financial means and personal preferences before selecting a community. Assisted living communities are constructed and equipped to comply with a host of local, state and federal Continued on page 132

Woodbine Senior Living Communities


HOUSING Assisted/Personal Care

Assisted Living... Continued from 130 regulations. They are operated, staffed and maintained in a manner appropriate to the needs and desires of the residents

served. While all communities will meet mandated requirements for safe operation, some communities will far exceed those requirements, providing extra security features. In particular, communities that provide care for residents

with Alzheimer’s or other dementias and disabilities generally feature special designs to assure resident safety and autonomy. Source: www.ahcancal.org

10 Tips for Choosing an Assisted Living/Personal Care Facility 1. Make an accurate and honest assessment of your physical, financial, mental and lifestyle needs. 2. Visit as many facilities as you can to get a sense of the choices in your area. 3. Narrow down your selection to the top two or three choices and return to those facilities and ask lots of questions. 4. Ask to review a copy of the Resident Agreement (facility contract). 5. Ask to review the licensing or certification inspection report. 6. Call the Long Term Care Ombudsman program and ask if there are complaints about the facilities you are interested in. Contact the ElderCare Locator at 1-800-677-1116 or www.eldercare.gov to find your local ombudsman who serves as an advocate for assisted living/personal care and nursing home residents. 7. Make an unannounced visit to the facilities you are interested in. Talk with the residents and their family members about the facility. 8. Ask what conditions or circumstances may result in the need to relocate or move to another facility. 9. Ask what the baseline fee is and what services are included in that fee. Ask what additional charges apply for services/ products. 10. Choose the facility that comes closest to your needs. From The Consumer Consortium on Assisted Living (CCAL), a national consumer education and advocacy organization. Visit www.ccal.org for more information.

Memory Care Specialized Care

Choose Memory Care A special care residence may be the right option Certification standards for nursing homes and adult care residences do not specifically address memory 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.

Love. Happiness. A Sense of Belonging. These Are The Things They Remember.

People with progressive memory loss may not remember why they feel happy or sad, but they remember the emotion. That’s why a safe, secure environment is so important. Wyncote Place has specialized in memory care exclusively for more than 20 years, Stop by and see how it feels. Services include: • Individualized care plans • Chef-prepared meals • Family-centered events • Safe, secure environment

Nursing Care Specialized care for individuals who need daily assistance While 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.

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.

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.

What to Look for in Nursing Care Before choosing a home, contact the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program 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.

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. 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 decisionmaking process. n Decide together what items to bring to the nursing home. n Be available the entire day of admission to help settle the resident and provide support.

Home Care Aging in Place

Home Care 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 or skilled nursing. 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.

THERE’S NO

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.

Medicare and Home Care Know the coverage options When it comes to understanding Medicare coverage, many individuals can find themselves confused by a complex web of information. This especially applies to those who want to know if they are eligible for Medicare coverage when entering a nursing home or receiving home health care. Below is some helpful information on whether you can use your home health care benefits if you have Medicare and what services and products it will cover. First, you can use your home health care benefits if all of the following applies to your situation. Your doctor must prescribe that you need medical care at home and create a care plan. The care you need has to be intermittent and in the form of skilled nursing care, physical therapy, occupational therapy or speech therapy. The home health agency must be Medicare-certified and you must be homebound, or unable to leave the home unassisted. Once you have established those requirements, it is important to understand what Medicare will actually cover, which includes the following: • Home health aide services on a parttime or intermittent basis, as long as

there is a skilled need • Medical social services • Certain medical supplies • Durable medical equipment (wheelchair, walker, bedside commode, etc.) Given the services and products that Medicare does cover, it is also valuable to take note of what is not covered. Care that is required 24 hours a day will not be covered. Other services not covered include personal care provided by home health aides such as bathing and dressing, along with homemaker

services like cleaning and laundry. Also not included are home-delivered meals. If you require care that goes beyond intermittent visits for a limited amount of time, or if your needs are not covered by Medicare, an important option to consider is private duty home care. For more information on Medicare coverage, visit medicare.gov. Information Provided by Family & Nursing Care/Legacy Home Care and adapted from medicare.gov.

Pay for Home Care Understanding costs can help with decision making As remaining at home is becoming an increasingly popular option for many, 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. Home healthcare must also be paid for with private funds, unless it is prescribed by a physician and provided by a Medicarecertified agency. 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 Individuals who meet income requirements may be eligible to receive home care services through Medicaid.

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

age 60 and over as well as 325,000 caregivers, are the Administration on Aging, the State Units of Aging, and the Area Agencies on Aging. Administration on Aging (AoA) As the leader of the Network, AoA works primarily to increase awareness amongst government agencies, organizations and the general public in regards to the needs of the older American population. In addition to recommending policy and developing regulations, AoA is also responsible for providing grants to worthwhile projects. The AoA can be reached at www.aoa.gov or 202619-0724. Eldercare Locator In an effort to provide nationwide information assistance to the general-

public, the AoA developed the Eldercare Locator in 1991, connecting Americans and their caregivers with information about local services. The program puts individuals in touch with local AAAs and other community-based organizations. To contact the Eldercare Locator, call 1-800- 677-1116 or visit www.eldercare.gov. State Units on Aging The State Units on Aging (SUA) serve as the state arm of the AoA. SUAs coordinate services in their states by working with a variety of state agencies and other public and private organizations. State Units also award grants to AAAs to help create community specific programs.

Services provided by Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) •A  dult Day Care is available for individuals who need daytime supervision. •C  ase Management Services are conducted by professionals who can assess needs and arrange for services to encourage continued independence. •E  lder Abuse Prevention Programs provide investigative services and intervention in cases of abuse. •F  inancial Assistance and benefit counseling is conducted by professionals. •H  ome Health Services provide needed care in the home environment.

Home Care Patient Rights Federal law requires that all individuals receiving home care services be informed of their rights as a patient. Following is a model patient bill of rights the National Association for Home Care (NAHC) has developed, based on the patient rights currently enforced by law. Home care patients have the right to: • Be fully informed of all rights and responsibilities by the home care agency; • Choose care providers; • Appropriate and professional care in accordance with physician orders; • Receive a timely response from the agency to requests for service;

• Be admitted for service only if the agency has the ability to provide safe, professional care at the level of intensity needed; • Receive reasonable continuity of care; • Receive information necessary to give informed consent prior to the start of any treatment or procedure;

• Be advised of any change in the plan of care, before the change is made; • Refuse treatment within the confines of the law and to be informed of the consequences of this action; • Be informed of his or her rights under state law to formulate advanced directives.

Choosing Home Care Use these questions to interview providers

Adult Day Care

o W  hat are the financial procedures of this provider? o D  oes the provider furnish written statements explaining all of the costs and payment plan options associated with home care? o W  hat procedures does this provider have in place to handle emergencies? Are its caregivers available 24 hours a day, seven days a week? o H  ow does this provider ensure patient confidentiality? o I f the hired caregiver becomes ill or otherwise unavailable, what alternate arrangements can be made? o Are social security, federal and state taxes, and unemployment insurance paid so the family is not legally responsible? o I s there verification that the paid caregivers can legally work in the U.S.? o I f the hired caregiver is injured, who is responsible? Remember that many homeowners’ insurance policies exclude such injuries via “domestic employee exclusions.” o A  re criminal history background checks, state abuse registry checks, and prior work reference checks completed? o I s there bonding and insurance in place that would cover any injury to the client, damage, or theft? When an agency says they are “bonded,” family members should be sure that this covers injury or damages. o I s it possible to estimate the ongoing cost of care?

Home Care

o H  ow long has this provider been serving the community? o Does this provider supply literature explaining its services, eligibility requirements, fees and funding sources? Many providers furnish patients with a detailed “Bill of Rights” that outlines the rights and responsibilities of the providers, patients and caregivers. o How does this provider select and train its employees? o Does it protect its workers with written personnel policies, benefits packages and malpractice insurance? o Are nurses or therapists required to evaluate the patient’s home care needs? If so, what does this entail? o Do they consult the patient’s physicians and family members? o Does this provider include the patient and his or her family members in developing the plan of care? o Are patients involved in making care plan changes? o 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? o 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? o Who can the patient and his or her family members call with questions or complaints? o How does the agency follow up on and resolve problems?

Find Daytime Supervision Centers provide socialization and peace of mind for caregivers Adult Day Centers are an important option for family caregivers, as they offer socialization, activities, and necessary supervision for 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.

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

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

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 easy to 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.
