You’re NEVER too OLD to Fight!!

Mary knew she was a fighter not a quitter. There was a lot going on in her life just now. At ninety-three, she knew a lot of people were counting her out. She had needed to come to the hospital – about four times in the last six weeks. This last time the tests had confirmed a heart attack, heart damage had been done. The doctor had said her heart was working at about thirty per cent of normal. She was just so short of breath. Even talking left her out of breath. How well she remembered her son coming to talk to her in the hospital: “Mom, the doctors say your heart is really bad. They say you need hospice.” Well, she just wasn’t a quitter. The hospice doctor had said, “We’re going to try to pull off a lot of fluid (with medicines). We’ll keep a lot of your medicines the same, though. You know, one study showed that people with hospice care for heart failure lived almost eighty days longer than people in the regular health care system.” So, she had gone to the hospice home – with some misgivings – determined to show people she had some fight left in her. At the hospice home, everyone was really nice. They tried to help her feel better – and soon she did. She still got out of breath pretty easily, but when the physical therapist came she walked 110 feet with her walker. That ought to show them. This afternoon her son is coming and they are going to talk about going back to her assisted living apartment with the help of an aide and hospice. “Tomorrow,” she thought, “I’ll be back with my friends.” Mary is going back to her assisted living apartment. The hospice nurse will come see her regularly and listen to her heart and lungs and help manage her medicines. The hospice nurse and doctor will work to keep the excess fluid off and help Mary stay out of the hospital. Hospice will pay for her oxygen and all her medicines. Maybe hospice isn’t just for quitters…

Celebrating National Hospice Month with Circle of Life, Northwest Arkansas’ largest nonprofit hospice.

How does one get hospice care? How much does hospice cost? Hospice provides care for those facing a life-limiting, terminal illness. When an individual has a prognosis of six months or less, and has been in and out of the hospital with little or no improvement, it is time to consider hospice. Hospice care focuses on quality of life and comfort for the patient and their family when a cure is no longer possible. “Choosing hospice care is not giving up on life” says Dr. Terry Sutterfield, Chief Medical Director for Circle of Life, “We always have hope until the very end but the focus is on caring, not curing.”

On November 4th Mary McKinney, CEO of Circle of Life Hospice, and her executive team will attend Governor Mike Beebe’s 2013 hospice proclamation ceremony at the state capitol. Governor Beebe will observe National Hospice Month by recognizing the important role hospice plays in the lives of Arkansans. In 2011 over a million Americans and almost 12,000 Arkansas residents received hospice care. It’s been over thirty years since Medicare approved the hospice benefit, making hospice available to many Americans for the first time. Today, although millions are being served, there are many misconceptions about hospice. Circle of Life, Northwest Arkansas’ largest nonprofit hospice is launching a community education campaign for National Hospice Month to dispel some of the confusion. So what exactly is hospice?

To qualify for hospice a patient must meet the Medicare guideline of being in the last six months of life, if the disease follows its normal course. Generally, hospice is covered under Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance with little or no out-ofpocket expense. The hospice benefit includes durable medical equipment – the devices and equipment needed to 12

keep patients comfortable— such as a hospital bed, walker, oxygen supply, disposable supplies and all drugs related to the hospice diagnosis.

Life patients are cared for in the place they call home. Wherever a patient resides in Benton, Carroll, Madison or Washington counties, we come to you.” Circle of Life is one of the few hospices nationally to offer free-standing inpatient facilities for acute symptom management. “We are fortunate at Circle of Life to have two inpatient Hospice Homes: The Earlene Howard Hospice Home in Springdale and the Circle of Life Hospice Home at Legacy Village in Bentonville.” These inpatient facilities have been built by generous contributions from our community and are a tribute to the giving culture of Northwest Arkansas. Medicare, Medicaid and insurance, usually cover hospice care and because Circle of Life is a nonprofit, no one is ever turned away because of their inability to pay.

Hospice patients are served by an interdisciplinary team, comprised of a nurse, social worker, aide, chaplain, volunteer and physician— whose collective skills provide dignified and compassionate end-of-life care. Mary McKinney sees hospice as a choice to live each day to the fullest. “At Circle of Life, we walk beside our patients as they embark on this final leg of their life’s journey. We offer pain and symptom management, as well as emotional and spiritual support. We also recognize that death does not occur in a vacuum—Circle of Life provides bereavement care designed to support family and friends in a manner that honors memories while finding ways to carry on.” Circle of Life’s bereavement services are open to the community at no cost.

To find out more about HOSPICE call Circle of Life at 479-750-6632 or ask your doctor.

McKinney points out that “95% of Circle of Please say “I found it in NWA Seniors’ Out ‘n’ About

Help Your Pet Live a Long, Healthy Life (Family Features) Pet parents do everything they can to ensure their dogs and cats are around as long as possible. Pets, much like humans, need a healthy diet and plenty of exercise to help them live a long and happy life. Good nutrition is key There are many factors involved when it comes to choosing a pet food for your dog or cat. Keep in mind if your pets aren’t digesting the ingredients properly, nutrition is not being absorbed. Get maximum nutrition from every bite by purchasing a natural, high quality food with a digestive health support system, such as Holistic Select Natural Pet Food. Ingredients to look for include: —Probiotics — or good bacteria — help keep your pet’s immune system healthy. Holistic Select contains live probiotics that are added to the food after it has been cooked and cooled. This process assures maximum survival of the probiotics, so that your pet reaps the full benefits of their food. —Prebiotics stimulate the growth and maintenance of good bacteria, like probiotics, in your pet’s digestive tract. —Fiber plays an important role in human digestive health, and it also plays an integral role in your pet’s digestive health. Look for foods with fiber-rich ingredients, such as oatmeal, flaxseed, pumpkin and papaya to promote digestive regularity. —Digestive enzymes help your pet’s body break down proteins, fiber and carbohydrates. This ensures your pet is getting the nutrients from their food, while reducing stress on their organs. This is especially crucial for aging pets. Get pets moving every day Dogs and cats used to have to work for a living. Many were bred to be mousers, hunters, herders or protectors. Most pets today have a much more sedentary lifestyle. They spend their days lying around, waiting for their human companions to come home and are rewarded for their patience with a big bowl of food. However, regular exercise supports healthy circulation of both nutrients and waste and is essential for a pet to have a happy and long life. Experts recommend cat owners plan a daily play session. Toys that mimic the actions of their natural prey — birds, mice or bugs — should get them up and moving. Dogs need to be walked for 20 to 30 minutes each day, while larger breeds often need much more. At your next veterinarian visit, ask if your pooch is healthy enough for an exercise program and ask for recommendations based on breed. Adequate exercise is an important step toward good health. It’s also a great way to reduce such unwanted behaviors as chewing, digging, scratching or whining.
