No Place Like (Small) Home Resident Thrives at Wesley Village

F

or over a year, Jane White watched from her patio home at Wesley Village Senior Living Community as the new Small Home for Memory Care was built, little knowing she would be one of its first residents. Wesley Village’s Small Home, which opened in 2011, is the first in Kentucky and represents a revolution in senior living. Small Homes replace the impersonal medical model institution with a homelike setting that returns control over daily living choices to residents who thrive rather than merely survive. A Small Home caters to seniors with Alzheimer’s. It includes a hearth, a large great room, a porch, a garden, and 10 private rooms with bathrooms. Each bedroom includes a state-ofthe-art mobility lift system provided by The Good Samaritan Foundation, Inc. Residents make their own schedules,

when to get up and go to bed, what and when to eat, etc. “I’ve never seen anything that so completely transforms the way we provide care than this new Small Home concept,” said Glenda Creech, president and CEO of Wesley Village. “We truly are joining a revolution in long-term care that is beginning to sweep the nation. And it’s about time!” Carol Silvey, Jane White’s daughter, couldn’t agree more now that her mother lives there. Jane and her husband, Bob, a retired minister, moved to their Wesley Village patio home in April 1999. Bob passed away in 2001 and Jane,

85, stayed in their patio home for 10 more years. More than two decades earlier, Jane and Bob had volunteered as research subjects at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging at the University of Kentucky. The research included annual physicals that looked for symptoms of Alzheimer’s and related dementias. In 2007, during Jane’s check-up, doctors noticed a decline in her cognitive function and in 2008 she was officially diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. In its early stages, Jane remained living in her patio home alone.


“Mother was a very structured person all her life,” Carol said. “She did things automatically. I think that helped.” But in late 2010, things changed. Jane had four falls in two months, one of which resulted in a hospital stay. While Jane’s health remained good and there seemed no reason for the falls, it was clear that her cognitive skills were slipping. It was time to move Jane out of her patio home and into an apartment at Hager Manor, a licensed personal care facility on the Wesley Village campus. The move was difficult for Jane. It was clear that she was unhappy and lost. Worried about Jane, Sherre Hall, Director of Health Services at Wesley Village, invited Carol to tour the new Small Home. “My first thought was that this was not a place for Mother. She wouldn’t like it,” Carol said. But in mid-March, Hall called Carol to express her concern about her mother. “She’s surviving, not thriving,” Carol recalls Hall telling her. “And she was absolutely right.” In her patio home Jane would read or play her piano, but in her new apartment she would just sit with her head in her hands.

“I don’t know what I am supposed to do,” Jane told her daughter. Still, Carol was reluctant to move her mother to the new Small Home. The first move had been so upsetting. After conferring with her brothers, they broke the news to her – she would move again, this time to the Small Home for Memory Care. “She was pretty devastated,” Carol said. That’s not surprising – change can be frightening for Alzheimer’s patients. But only days after Jane moved to the Small Home, Carol’s fears evaporated. “It was a complete transformation,” Carol said, still amazed by the change in her mother. Carol credits the quick adjustment to the Small Home’s environment. Each resident has his or her own bedroom and bathroom, and shares the great room like any family would. The great room revolves around a hearth and includes the dining room, living room and an open kitchen where residents can watch the meals being prepared. Residents eat, watch TV and

Alzheimer’s Playbook “Mom, I want you to see my flowers. Come on, I’ll get you a sweater. The cool autumn air is good for the lungs anyway. Good for the soul, too. “If only green thumbs were contagious. I wouldn’t mind if both my thumbs were green. If I could only get these mums to grow. You always planted such beautiful mums! “I don’t even like dark colors, but your mums, those maroons and deep yellows, those colors I liked. “Mom, can I say something? I don’t mean to hurt your feelings, but you look different than when I last saw you. Quieter, too. Never thought I’d say that about you! “Ha! Quieter? That Florida sun must have mellowed you…. Mom, I’m talking to you, but you’re looking right past me. Seriously, are you okay?” So, the person you once knew has changed. It is not a nose job or a new outfit. No, the crooked nose is still crooked, and she pulls out

Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia. Alzheimer’s is a disease and not a part of normal aging. Alzheimer’s shrinks the brain to 2/3 its original size and affects every part of its functioning. Alzheimer’s is the nation’s sixth leading cause of death. Alzheimer’s affects more than 5 million Americans and almost 15 million Americans act as unpaid caregivers.

Laura Jewell has worked in elder care for five years. As Family and Staff Education Coordinator for Senior Helpers of the Bluegrass, she manages cases of those clients with dementia. She also teaches staff and family to effectively relate to and care for the client using Teepa Snow’s methods and the practices of Virginia Bell’s Best Friends approach.

that same green argyle sweater every fall. No, the change is unseen and not chosen. You go with her to the doctor and they say it is Alzheimer’s. Your heart sinks. What do you do with that? How do you face that giant, named Alzheimer’s? First, take heart. This is still your mom and you know her. Knowing who she is will be incredibly helpful in the days to come. Also, you may find the following helpful. These pointers are based on Teepa Snow’s methods and the Best Friends approach, developed by Virginia Bell of Lexington. Both approaches are person-centered where caregivers get to know the person with dementia in order to give the most effective care. Using these pointers, as well as seeking the advice and support of peers, family and experts may just scale that giant Alzheimer’s back down to size.

Celebrate

What she is still able to do while providing gentle guidance when needed. This may mean encouraging her to help hang the Christmas pine wreaths and straighten each red, satin ribbon, but also delicately touching her back, guiding her through the produce aisle. You know your mom and how best to initiate both the encouragement and the help she needs.

Understand

Consider what is really going on inside your mom’s brain as you choose how to respond to the situation at hand. Study Alzheimer’s so that you can better understand why there is a yogurt tub in her dresser drawer, why you are being yelled at for no reason, and why she keeps repeating that same story about Uncle Frank and the hedgehog.

Be Safe

Help make her home both therapeutic and safe. Revamp the home in a way that makes sense to her. For example, if she only uses the alarm clock on her dresser, consider shelving the candle, framed poem and telephone, thus avoiding over-stimulation. You cannot be overly cautious, and accidents can happen at any moment. Ask yourself questions, like, “Is this tile too slick?” And seek expert advice from her doctors, the Alzheimer’s Association, or her local senior citizens center.

Encourage

Facilitate good relationships, nutritious food and regular exercise. While certain activity may need to be modified, all of these will be good for her. In helping her to do these things, do not forget that you need to take care of yourself, as well. If respite care is needed, consider asking family and friends, choosing an adult day center, or hiring professional caregivers who are trained and experienced with Alzheimer’s care.


Small Home Transformed Her Life

Continued from Page 5 socialize on their own schedules. A small and regular group of staff care for the residents and help engage them in traditional daily activities. Soon after she moved in, Carol told her mother that she had lived there a month. “Mother said, ‘No, it’s been longer than that.’ She felt that this was home.” In fact, Jane has told her daughter several times that she has everything she needs there. Carol and her brothers are relieved knowing their mother is not only safe but happy and cared for. “She is back to the level she was a year ago, both emotionally and socially,” Carol said. “I never thought she’d be back to that.” In fact, Jane has returned to playing her beloved piano, which she has donated to the Small Home. “This is so unbelievable

to me,” Carol said. “I would highly recommend this to anyone else like my mother. “This is definitely the best situation for her.” Few words could make Alan Beuscher more proud. Before Bob White passed away, he asked Beuscher, Wesley Village’s Vice President for Community Relations, to promise that he and the Village would care for his wife after he was gone. Beuscher said they would. “I get the deepest satisfaction that we at Wesley Village have fulfilled that promise to Jane and her family,” Beuscher said. “The Small Home idea isn’t just for Wesley Village, it’s for the whole state and for reform for nursing homes. “We have always known that there must be a better way in nursing home care, and this is it.” Y

Healthy, Wealthy 7x7x7 & Wise: Tips for Living

M

By Dale Ditto

ost people would like to be Healthy, Wealthy and Wise for their entire lives. However, many of us overlook the little things that help us stay vibrant. If you re-read this article once a week and follow its suggestions, you can truly have a life worth living. Being an older adult has its advantages. We have a wealth of experience. Physically, we are not as dominated by hormones. And financially, we have completed the expensive child-raising years and have more net assets. The problem is that we have made “Retirement” our life goal. “Retirement” is a 20th century phenomenon. Why would anyone ever want to be “retired?” I want to be “re-energized and re-engaged” rather than “re-tired.” As we grow older, we can reach new peaks of energy and influence. I want to be excited to live each new day. We need to condition ourselves mentally, physically, spiritually and financially to be growing and improving each day. Fortunately, we live in a day and age when this is possible. So, what are the keys to living Healthy, Wealthy and Wise? Below is a 7x7x7 plan for Healthy, Wealthy and Wise living.

|| Healthy || Eat Healthy – Aim to eat six servings of fruit and vegetables each day

Exercise Regularly – Walk

Begin each new day reprogramming your mind with energy and health. Start the day stating:

I feel healthy; I feel happy; I feel terrific. I feel good; I feel great; I feel wonderful. Man alive, two for five, ain’t it great to be alive. I can, I will, & I’m gonna have the best day I’ve ever had.

Say it everyday… especially when you don’t feel like it. How you feel about something stems from your actions. Even though you may feel silly saying it, it is amazing how you will feel better after doing so. Finally, count your blessings. Scientists have determined that gratitude makes you healthier and wealthier. At least it makes you feel that way. Dale Ditto (right) and John McIntosh have more than 50 years combined experience as financial advisers. McIntosh has been a financial adviser since 1986, and Ditto has more than 30 years experience, including 20 years as an attorney doing estate planning.

|| Wealthy || Live simply – Every possession takes time, effort and money to maintain it.

Save regularly – Spend less than

10,000 steps per day

you earn

Control Weight – Your waist

Invest Wisely – Have a plan and

measurement at the belly button should be no more than half your height

an advisor to help you stick with it. (Don’t work for money. Let money work for you.)

Laughter – Have a hearty belly laugh

Give generously – Store up

at least twice a day

treasure in Heaven

Marriage – Keep your relationships

Stay Productive – Retirement is

fun and vibrant

Adequate Sleep – Plan to get 7-8

not a worthy goal. Always be working at something you enjoy

hours of sleep each night. (Short naps are good too)

Communicate Love to those around you. Love people, rather than things.

Breathe deeply – Exhale worry

Count your Blessings – We can

do things today that the richest kings could not have done 100 years ago.

|| Wise || The Fear of God is Beginning of Wisdom (Proverbs 9:10) - If you believe in God, don’t be a hypocrite. Let your life show it. Always Be Learning – Have a teacher. Be a teacher Read Good Books – Read one classic for every modern book Program your Mind – Memorizing quotes, poems and scripture Have Wise Friends – You become the average of the five people you hang out with most. Use Technology to expand interaction with friends and family and to communicate your love. The Power of Positive Thinking – “What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” (Napoleon Hill)

o you have elderly parents who are still driving everywhere… and driving you wild with worry?

You know that they – and other drivers – would be safer if they gave up driving, but how do you approach the subject? Our culture is geared around our vehicles. Without this luxury, we feel we have lost our “independence.” And with some seniors, they feel this is their last form of independence. I have no magic formula, no “easy button” to offer up, but I will share my personal experience when I faced this issue with my own father. After several small “fender benders,” it became clear that the car needed to go. First, I solicited the help of my brother, who lived in another state but provided substantial support when we broached the subject with Dad. There is strength in numbers. After several attempts to “reason” with Dad, we decided the time had come for us to face the issue boldly and honestly. My brother and I agreed that we needed to paint the worst possible picture of what could occur if Dad continued to drive.

So, we braced ourselves and had the big discussion. We were thorough and led with “what if” situations. “But Dad, what if you have an accident and you are the cause? Not only could you be injured, but you could cause harm or injury to others. “Do you want that on your conscience? “Do you want to risk a possible lawsuit that could wipe out your retirement funds? “With your decreased eyesight and your delayed reflexes, we believe you will be safer when someone else does the driving for you. “We say this to you because we love you, and we want you to remain safe.” Even though my dad had some mild dementia during the “driving” issue, the reasoning used in our intervention can be used with any elderly driver. The key is to put in place options for transportation once they “give up” driving the car themselves. This can be challenging, but given the circumstances, it’s worth the effort. Y

Richmond Place Rehab Addition Offers FirstClass Amenities

ecovering from a stroke, heart attack or broken bone is difficult enough without the added stress of being away from home during rehabilitation. It’s that stress that Richmond Place Retirement Community intends to relieve with the new addition to its Rehabilitation and Health Center on Palumbo Drive in Lexington. The current, recently renovated center houses 90 residents in 30 private and 60 semi-private rooms. About one-third of the residents are in short-term rehab with stays lasting between three and five weeks. The rest are in long-term, skilled nursing care. The new addition, which opened in October, adds 30 new rehabilitation rooms for short-term residents only. The addition is connected to the existing center, and has its own private entrance. The state-of-the-art addition incorporates all the latest high-tech equipment in a living space adorned with elegant features. Rick Arnold, Director of Corporate Development with Brookdale Living,

12

|| www.lexingtonfamily.com

which manages Richmond Place, has high praise for the new addition. “We now have one of the finest upscale nursing facilities in the state. I don’t know of one that is better,” he said. Jamie Gitzinger, healthcare administrator of the Rehabilitation Center, calls the addition a social rather than medical model of health care, comparing it to a home-like setting. “We think it’s the finest rehab center in a 100-mile radius of Lexington,” he said. “It’s definitely the future.” The addition offers an environment that is more like a luxury hotel than a traditional rehab center. All but four of the 30 rooms are luxurious private suites (the other four share a bathroom) with 42-inch flat screen TVs with cable, wireless Internet connections, Tempur-Pedic mattresses, blanket warmers, bedside phones and in-room safes. The closets feature easy-pull doors,

there’s a thermostat in every other room, laundry is done in-house for no charge, and free transportation is supplied for doctor appointments. The new addition features a country kitchen with an expansive dining area. Residents also have access to an inhouse beauty parlor, library and full dining room with an ice cream parlor. The wireless computer program includes loaner laptops, and “It’s Never Too Late,” a software program allowing residents access to e-mail, music and games. On the medical side, the addition incorporates the newest technologies in patient care and therapy. The large therapy room offers the latest in high-tech rehabilitation equipment, including a balance program, e-stim, Ultrasound, Omnicycles and Nu-Step. There is even a Nintendo Wii virtual gaming system incorporated into therapies. A wireless nurse call system keeps caregivers in touch with patients at all times. “Our health care expansion will offer Lexington a new era in rehabilitation,” said Carol Brinegar, Executive Director for Richmond Place. “With an emphasis on short-term care, residents staying in our private units will appreciate the attention to detail to ensure comfort while promoting positive outcomes with physical, occupational and speech therapy.” Y


W Blindness can be sneaky. If you haven’t had a comprehensive eye exam recently, now is the time. Diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration slowly steal your eyesight. But they can be prevented if detected early by a qualified Optometrist. If you or a loved one are over 50, call Family Eyecare Associates today to schedule an eye exam. It could help save your eyesight before you know you’re losing it.

Learn the Lingo

inding the right care for your loved ones can be difficult, even at the best of times. Knowing the “lingo” of elder care housing can make choosing the right facility much easier. (For more information, please see Housing Guide, facing page.)

Independent Living Independent Living communities are for older adults who are able to function without supervision or personal assistance. Many communities offer services such as meals, transportation, social and recreational activities and housekeeping. Residents are usually required to sign a oneyear lease. Factors to consider include terms of the lease agreement, costs for extra services, services offered on site (exercise room, library, etc.), transportation, housekeeping and social activities offered.

Assisted Living Assisted Living is similar to Independent Living communities but with additional services, including assistance with activities of daily living (bathing, dressing, personal care and medication reminders). Some long-term care insurance policies cover the cost of Assisted Living. Factors to consider include certification, staff-resident ratio, housekeeping, transportation, shopping and laundry services.

Generally smaller than Assisted Living communities, Personal Care facilities offer 24-hour supervision, meals, assistance with daily activities of living, and supervision of medication intake. Factors to consider are similar to Assisted Living.

Skilled Nursing Care This level of care is most appropriate for individuals needing 24-hour supervision and health care. Individuals who are in need of rehabilitation after a hospital stay may be discharged to a nursing home for temporary care. Skilled Care may be covered by Medicare and Medicaid. Questions: Are the residents well groomed? How many beds are certified for Medicare? For Medicaid? What are the results of annual state inspections (or surveys)? Are residents encouraged to exercise their rights as outlined by the 1987 Nursing Home Reform Law?

In Home Services People staying at home as long as possible may need assistance with activities of daily living such as housekeeping, laundry, shopping and even companionship. Many local businesses provide in-home services such as skilled nursing, help with medications and more.

ocky oad M

By Jason Veinot

r. Richards retired from Dynasty, Corp two years ago and just learned that his pension check has been stopped because the company is facing Chapter 11 bankruptcy. Mrs. Dawson received a letter that her former employer will no longer fund a group health insurance plan for retirees, forcing her to find and pay her individual policy at age 62. The Randalls have two children in college and are unable to save for retirement while paying the hefty costs of higher education. Ma Gracie has been in a nursing home for almost two years and the family is now forced to cash in her last CD in order to pay for care. This amount will last only four more months. These are fictional scenarios but represent real world situations that thousands of people face every day. The U.S. government currently faces its highest deficit, health care costs continue to spike, government programs such as Social Security and Medicare are stretched, food prices keep climbing, CD interest rates are at an all-time low, and the stock market is more unpredictable than ever. In this environment, how can families plan – and pay – for major events such as education, savings, weddings, retirement and medical

How to Invest in Good Times and Bad

emergencies? Plus, people are living longer and needing money to last longer than ever. So what can be done to grow your money to keep pace with these demands while protecting you from the unexpected events that could send the market plummeting as it has twice in the past 10 years? How do you plan for the worst while hoping for the best? The following are effective strategies for up and down economies. With varying degrees of risk, they can help provide protection during bad times with growth potential during the good times.

Minimum Risk Approach Many people seek the safety of a CD with the growth potential of a mutual fund – in other words, a safe bet. An Equity Indexed Annuity account can provide just that. It protects your funds when the market drops, provides growth potential when the stock market goes up, and has the potential to lock in gains along the way.

Aggressive Growth Approach

When prices of the S&P 500 Index are above a determined line, you should stay in the market. When prices fall below, you should move to cash. This is a simple technique and can be accessed through any financial charting site such as Yahoo! Finance.

Balanced Approach The 25% Approach is based on the financial dictum that stocks do well in strong economies; gold and bonds often do well when stocks fall, and cash is a safe haven during recessionary times. History has shown that a simple allocation of 25% into each of these four asset classes – stocks, gold, bonds and cash – has outperformed a straight stock portfolio over the past 10 years with only half of the risk. In fact, this allocation has experienced only two negative years out of the past 20 with the worst being approximately minus 8%. These are a few strategies that can be used individually or in combination to help protect against the unknown while providing for potential growth along the way. Y

An advanced technique for those who like to keep money in the stock market for the long term but avoid potential drops along the way is a 200 Day Moving Average. This is a guide that Jason Veinot is President of Enhanced can help determine Capital, LLC, a Lexington firm that actively when you should manages portfolios designed to enhance be in or out of the returns in up, down, and sideways markets. market.
