Circle of Life Hospice.  The rest of your life. Lived. Hospice care is recommended when a person is terminally ill with a life expectancy of six months or less. However, each case is unique. Some patients are on hospice care for a few days or weeks, while many are on hospice care for several months or even years. We believe when patients choose hospice care earlier, they experience a better quality of life. We believe that life doesn’t stop in the last weeks, days or even hours. We focus on pain and symptom management and on emotional and spiritual support. And we strive to help you have a better quality of life and more time with loved ones. With Circle of Life you decide what kind of care is right for you. Circle of Life is committed to help you get the most out of every moment. 5

Over Age 50? Make Long-Term Care Plans Before They Are Needed The best time to make decisions regarding long-term care is well before it’s needed. An unexpected illness or injury may force you or a loved one into making hasty decisions. Long-term care is a set of services and supports for people who are unable to perform Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs are self-care activities, such as getting in and out of bed, walking, bathing, dressing, eating, and bowel and bladder management. About 70 percent of people turning 65 can expect to need some kind of long-term care services as they age. Experts encourage everyone over age 50 to take the time, while you have it, to research options and make important choices. Long-term care planning means developing a personal strategy now for how things should be handled later when you or a loved one is in need of care. Important considerations include the following: Staying In Charge An important part of long-term care planning is outlining how you would like things to be handled. Expressing preferences clearly about how any declines in ADLs should be handled, what financial resources are available, and who should provide needed care is a good way to retain control. All adults over age 18 should execute legal documents that appoint one or more individuals to make health care and financial decisions for them in the event they become unable to make decisions for themselves. An attorney can also prepare an advance care directive, which is a set of written instructions detailing what medical care you want or do not want.

Housing Those who would prefer to stay at home for as long as possible should make a plan to do so, and consider making modifications as needed. Typical modifications include adding wheelchair ramps, installing medical alert systems and adding handrails or safety grips. Ideally, your residence should maximize your ability to continue performing ADLs, and help you avoid a fall. Family Care Unpaid family members are the most common source of long-term care help. But, they may not be able to provide all the care you need, or be there every hour of the day. If you intend to rely on family members for long-term care services be sure to involve them in your long-term care planning. Make sure they are willing and able to be caregivers for you. Paid Care As part of your long-term care plan, look into caregiving services in your area, including in-home care providers and elder daycare centers. Find out about elder shuttles, meals on wheels and other low-cost services offered in your community. Several types of housing come with support services for people who cannot fully take care of themselves due to aging and/or disability. Take the time to familiarize yourself with the different types of facilities available in your area. Visit www. to find out more information about each type of facility and costs associated with long-term care. Your local Area Agency on Aging office also offers a list of resources available to the elderly in your area. Photo courtesy of Getty Images

Mother of 10 Shares Her Story My husband and I are en- trepreneurs and were hav- ing financial success; how- ever, with Mike on the road for weeks at a time, I felt like a single parent. You know the song, “Cats in the Cradle” by Harry Chapin? That idea of missing out on family time haunted us, so I began to pray for an an- swer. On a mountain top in Ther- mopolis, WY in July 2011, Michael and I created an intention. We were pre- pared to be good stewards of great resources and were looking for an opportunity; something health and well- ness related, highly con- sumable, recession proof, with a simple easy-to- follow system, an awesome compensation plan, and solid leadership. I told Mike we would know the right thing had come along when we heard from my long time friend and busi- ness mentor, Jett, whom I hadn’t spoken with in 3 years. About 2 weeks later, Mike received a text from none other than Jett and he introduced us to Organo Gold. At first I said, “Jett, we don’t drink coffee!” Jett said, “I don’t either, but it’s not about you. Put on your business hat, Michele!” So I did! Within 30 days, Mike and I had recouped our invest- ment, generated as much revenue as an average Starbucks, and qualified for a new Mercedes Benz paid for by Organo Gold! All while he ran our busi- ness and I home-schooled four of the eight children “In these tough economic times, what a financial blessing to be able to allow people to build a Gourmet Coffee Distrib- utorship at the begin- ning of the creation of a Multi-Billion Dollar Global Brand (Organo Gold) that will trans- form the over 100 Bil- lion Dollar Coffee indus- try by making coffee HEALTHIER and al- lowing people to be paid for sharing great tasting coffee!!!” - Jett Entrepreneur, Coffee Millionaire, Visionary, Motivational Speaker, Success Mentor still living at home. Let me ask you this, Do you or anyone you know drink coffee or tea at least occa- sionally? How do you like it? Black or cream and sugar? What’s your favorite brand? Has that company ever paid you to drink their coffee or refer it to a friend? Would you like a free sample of the coffee that pays? All we ask is that you let us know what you think of the taste and how it makes you feel!

Smoke and Spice Takes Summer Grilling to New Heights This summer, think inside the box – the smoke box, that is – and turn your grill into a backyard smoker by adding wood chips to impart flavorful depth to meats, seafood and vegetables. Pairing the right spice with the right wood quickly turns an ordinary cookout into an extraordinarily tasty outdoor feast. “When you combine different spices and seasonings with various types of wood, you can add distinctive layers of flavor to all kinds of grilled foods,” said Chef Kevan Vetter of McCormick. “If you’re grilling fish – like salmon, for example – a great way to give the meal a unique, smoky flavor is to use pecan or mesquite wood chips. Then add a complementary seasoning like McCormick Grill Mates Fiery 5 Pepper Seasoning.” Five Pepper Salmon Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 14 minutes Makes: 6 servings 1 4 4 1 1/2

cup pecan or mesquite wood chips teaspoons McCormick Grill Mates Fiery 5 Pepper Seasoning teaspoons firmly packed light brown sugar pounds of salmon fillets Olive oil

Soak wood chips in enough water to cover for 1 hour. Drain wood chips. Fill smoker box with wet wood chips. Place smoker box under grill rack on one side of grill. Close lid. Heat grill on high heat about 10 minutes until smoke appears from chips. Reduce heat to medium. Mix seasoning and sugar in small bowl. Brush salmon lightly with oil. Rub generously with seasoning mixture. Place salmon on grill. Close lid. Grill salmon 6 to 7 minutes per side or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
