Virginia Hospital Center Foundation Lifeline Assistance Fund Virginia Hospital Center established the Lifeline Assistance Fund in 2009 to provide a subsidy for the Lifeline service, enabling seniors to remain in their homes with confidence and safety. Since its inception, more than 60 subscribers have benefited from this program. Our goal is to continuously enroll low-income individuals into the Lifeline Assistance Fund each year, and to support each subscriber for as long as he or she is able to use the Lifeline service. Referrals are received from Hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, county social services providers and home health agencies. Jackie Igoe, Human Services Clinician with Arlington County’s Division of Aging and Disability Services, who has referred dozens of her own clients, says that because the Virginia Hospital Center Senior Health staff visit her clients in their homes, they are more likely to trust them and to properly use their Lifeline. According to her, the Hospital’s Lifeline Assistance Fund has greatly improved the quality of her low-income clients’ lives. As a not-for-profit Hospital, we rely on individual and corporate support of this program. With your help, this fund will assist our most vulnerable, at-risk community members by providing the Philips Lifeline service to those who otherwise would not be able to afford it. Support the Lifeline Assistance Fund by visiting: https://vhcf. ejoinme.org/lifeline. Applications can also be requested online.

“The Lifeline Assistance Fund allows my low-income clients to continue living in their own homes rather than in an institution. The team treats my clients with the highest level of professionalism and respect. They are so responsive to my clients’ needs! Recently, I had a client who needed the Lifeline service right away, and the Virginia Hospital Center installed it in her home within 24 hours of her request. A few of my low-income clients have fallen and used their Lifelines to get immediate help, thereby avoiding the sometimes serious health consequences of lying on the floor for a long period of time. On behalf of this population, I thank the Lifeline Assistance Fund for its generous support. The Lifeline Assistance Fund doesn’t just improve my clients’ lives; it saves them.” — Jackie Igoe, LCSW

What sets Virginia Hospital Center apart from other area Hospitals? Virginia Hospital Center is the only Hospital in Northern Virginia to offer the Philips Lifeline Safe Transition for Hospital Patients program. The transition from Hospital to home is a critical time for many patients, especially during the first few weeks following discharge. Early intervention minimizes potential complications from a fall or other medical crises. Through this exciting new initiative, Virginia Hospital Center’s Senior Health staff set up the Philips Lifeline medical alert service at no cost for two months for “at risk” patients being discharged from Virginia Hospital Center. 8

Advance Medical Directives Virginia Hospital Center Supports Patient Rights Planning ahead for medical decisions can make difficult situations more manageable for patients and their families. Advance planning is the only way to ensure that a patient’s wishes are followed in the event of a medical emergency or long-term illness. Under a Virginia law called the Healthcare Decisions Act, adults may sign a document that makes their choices about treatment known to their doctor and family in advance. In that document, they also can name someone to make decisions for them if they become unable to do so themselves. This document is known as an advance directive. The Virginia Healthcare Decisions Act allows patients to make two types of decisions about their healthcare in an advance directive. The first type tells people how to care for the patient if they ever have a terminal condition and are unable to make decisions. 10

Retirement Living Communities Continuing Care Communities offer support for changing health needs

C

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

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

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

Independent Living

Independent Living Communities Communities offer security with no home maintenance

T

he more years you put behind you, the more worries you may have about continuing to maintain your home. When you do not need medical supervision, but feel like washing your hands of endless home-related tasks, independent living is an option that can help. What is Independent Living? Independent living communities are residential communities for active older adults who want an enjoyable lifestyle free of the worries and trouble of home maintenance. They are similar to any apartment, condominium or single-family development, except that

they provide special services, including security—an important consideration for many residents. Most independent living communities are fully secured, with staff members greeting and screening all visitors around the clock. Residents can leave home for extended periods of time knowing that their living quarters will be safe. As many individuals at this stage in their lives are looking to pursue new hobbies and interests with their free time, the activities and amenities available at a community are a major factor for potential residents. Several independent living communities provide a full range of activities such as shopping trips, outings to cultural events and organized

gatherings that promote socialization. Some communities also have tennis courts, swimming pools, activity rooms and other amenities that keep residents active and engaged. Most offer a variety of meal plans, including the option to prepare meals in your own apartment. Most independent living communities do not offer health care services (such as those provided, for example, by assisted living communities and skilled nursing/rehabilitation facilities), but some independent living 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 to whom they may have grown accustomed.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living Communities

A

Providing supportive services

ssisted Living communities offer housing and a variety of supportive services delivered by qualified staff members. As opposed to independent living communities, health care services are available at assisted living communities. The Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) notes that assisted living is “a unique transition from independent living without care” that “helps seniors enjoy an improved quality of life with independence and care combined.” Community amenities vary widely but can include private units, state-of-theart facilities, beautifully decorated common areas, barber shops and beauty parlors, pharmacies, physical therapy services, recreation rooms, libraries, gardening areas, and fitness centers. Consumers will quickly find that as-

sisted living communities, also commonly called residential care facilities or personal care homes, come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Who Needs It? Residents of assisted living usually include anyone who needs some help with the activities of daily life. These include eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting, medication management and walking. Most communities offer three meals a day served in a common dining area. Many also offer some type of assistance with transportation. Housekeeping and laundry services are standard offerings. Staff members are available to meet resident needs 24 hours a day. Most communities are equipped with security systems, and emergency call systems are often available in all residences. For residents with more acute health care

DIGNITY

SECURITY

needs, such as Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, special units and/or specially trained staff members are often available. In addition, communities offer a wide range of social activities to stimulate resident contact. Choosing a Community First and foremost, consider the needs and desires of the potential resident. Narrow the search by reviewing a list of all the local communities. Request a brochure from your top choices, as well as other specific information such as the resident agreement or contract, a list of services and amenities, detailed prices, staffing information, admission and discharge criteria, and community rules. Visit a facility more than once to get a complete feel of the lifestyle at the community. Talk with staff and residents and tour the entire facility.

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

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

ing, 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.
