Senior Wesley Village Resident Thrives in Digital World

by John Lynch


ant to know why Apple’s stock is trading at nearly $700 a share? Check out the devices and gadgets at Jeanette Stevenson’s home in Wilmore. With her iPhone, iPod and iPad, she is Apple to the core.

She also has a laptop that is hooked up to her brand new 3-D TV. (She just traded in her HD for the latest technology). She has a Facebook page and she often chats with her friends through Skype. With all her technology, Stevenson is like most Americans. Except that Stevenson is 76 years old and lives in a retirement community. You don’t find too many folks born during the Depression using a smart



phone to check football scores or streaming her favorite radio station through her iPod. Her fellow residents at Wesley Village Senior Living Community know that when it comes to technology, Stevenson is the go-to gal. “A resident told me her e-mail locked up and asked me to look at it, so I fixed it for her,” Stevenson said. “Another resident asked if I had a smart phone. When I said yes, he said,

‘I thought so.’ “I guess I have people snowed. They think I’m cutting edge.” She always has been. Born in western Canada, Stevenson earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Saskatchewan, studied theology in Massachusetts and at UC Berkeley during the turbulent 1960s and then became an editor, landing in Lexington at the University Press of Kentucky. After 16 years at UK and six at an industrial rubber company, she was hired in 1989 by the Lexington police department. A civilian, she worked there for 12 years, finishing in the property and evidence room in 2001 when she retired. That explains why her DVR is filled with true crime TV shows. In 2006, Stevenson moved into a patio home in Wesley Village, where

she lives independently. “I’m very happy here. It’s like a big extended family,” said Stevenson, who has not married. “I participate in the activities, and it’s nice to talk with people. There are so many people here with fascinating backgrounds.” Like Stevenson herself. Technology has always interested her – in the 1980s she earned an associate’s degree in computer science. She bought her Apple 3S iPhone a year ago and uses her iPad for games (Angry Birds), to research her family tree at and to stream ESPN 3 and watch the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League. Along with streaming radio programs on her iPod, she listens to an eclectic mix of music – Tammy Wynette and Marvin Gaye, Dolly Parton and Phil Collins, Whitney Houston and Lady Antebellum.

With her laptop connected to her TV, she streams documentaries and free movies through HBO Go, and she purchased the 3-D set in time for the Olympics. “I put on the glasses and watched springboard diving, and it really gives you the full experience. I loved it,” she said. She started Skyping a few months ago with Charles “Eck” Branham, who lives in Nicholasville. (“I feel a little old calling him my boyfriend,” she said.) Even at night, when it’s time for a little quiet reading, Stevenson remains plugged in and flips on her Kindle e-reader. “I have to be on top of technology,” Stevenson said. “I enjoy being up-todate. I don’t want to lag behind.” Don’t worry, Jeanette. That doesn’t seem likely. Y

One Man’s Opinion


ith a brand new smart phone strapped to his belt, 87-year-old Cliff Harstad looks like another tech-savvy senior at Wesley Village. Not so fast. “Do you want to know what I think of this phone?” Harstad asks. “Not much.” How come? “It’s too big. I can’t fit it in my pocket, and it can do too many things that I will never use.” The phone was a gift from Harstad’s son, who told his father it was time to get up-to-date. “I was going to tell him to forget it and not bother to buy me a new phone, but then I read my horoscope,” Harstad said. “It said something like, ‘It’s the digital age. Get with it.’ “So I didn’t say anything to my son.” Harstad now wishes he had his old phone back. But at least there’s a moral to the story, he said. “Don’t read your horoscope.” Y

All Residents Can Get Wired At Wesley Village


eanette Stevenson isn’t the only wired resident at Wesley Village. In fact, the staff at the Wilmore retirement community brings technology to all residents through its Never Too Late computers. Wesley Village, a continuum of care community, has four of the user-friendly touch-screen computers – one in Holloway Cottage small home for memory care, one in the Community Center for all residents and two for use by the staff with residents in personal and skilled care. Alan Beuscher is Vice President for Community Relations and has worked at Wesley Village since it opened 17 years ago. He has seen an explosion of technology use among residents. “Because the computers are so easy to use, I see residents on them all the time,” he said. “Residents use Skype to talk to their grandkids and interact with family members from a distance.” The computers are a big hit in group settings as well, according to Activity Director Judith Edwards. Karaoke, old movies, TV shows and games such as mahjong and crossword puzzles are popular. “We use the computers to get everyone involved,” Edwards said. “It’s also good with memory care residents. It stimulates their memories and gets them involved. “We’ve also taught finger knitting through You Tube, and that’s great for mind-hand coordination. We’re all very excited about how technology helps the residents.” Y 2013 Successful Aging Resource Guide ||

Hospice W

hen Gale Reece’s active, 87-year-old mother, JoAnn Griffin, suddenly fell ill during a visit to Florida, the resulting diagnosis – kidney failure and cancer – was devastating to the family. A 41-day hospital stay, kidney dialysis and a bevy of specialists quickly added to the family’s stress. How to coordinate all the care? Reece called on Esther Hurlburt, a Lexington elder care manager, to help navigate her mother’s illness. Hurlburt’s ultimate recommendation was to call Hospice of the Bluegrass. Hospice? Reece had not thought to call in Hospice so soon after her mother’s diagnosis. “Hospice is not just for the end of life,” Reece said. “This is what the public needs to know.” Reece met with Dr. Coté, Hospice’s Chief Medical Officer who not only visited Mrs. Griffin in the hospital but met with all the medical specialists in charge of her heart, kidney and cancer issues. Dr. Coté coordinated Mrs. Griffin’s care and provided the family an overview of her condition. “He had the overarching view about quality of life, where she should live, what help she would need,” Reece said. “You can’t buy the kind of care and coordination that Hospice gave us.” Many people believe Hospice of the Bluegrass is appropriate only in the last few days of life. The organization provides much more.



Gale Reece, right, with her mother JoAnn Griffin. After Mrs. Griffin became ill, Hospice of the Bluegrass coordinated her care. Hospice offers nurses who visit with patients, nursing assistants to help with bathing and dressing, social workers to provide counseling to patients and families, a chaplain, volunteers who can assist with practical needs such as transportation or respite care, and bereavement care for surviving family members. After her hospital stay Mrs. Griffin

moved to Richmond Place Retirement Community where she continued to receive Hospice care until she passed away in May 2012. “Hospice helped us immeasurably,” Reece said. “I don’t know how we would have done it without them.” Reece hopes others can learn from her experience. “This is the new Hospice today. It’s not what I thought it was.” Y

What Is Hospice? Hospice care is for people with a serious illness who want to focus on quality of life. Typically this means the last six months of a person’s life. Hospice’s services include a team of highly trained professionals who partner with patients, their family and their doctors to maximize a patient’s quality of life. This team consists of: t A hospice physician specially trained in managing pain and other bothersome symptoms. t A hospice nurse who routinely visits patients in their residence to ensure a patient is comfortable and to educate the patient and caregiver on the likely progression of disease. t A certified nursing assistant who

assists with bathing and dressing. t A social worker who provides counseling services to the patient and family. t A chaplain who provides spiritual care and support to the patient and family. t A volunteer who offers }}} Page 10

Planning For Your Future Why Retirees Should Invest More Like Endowments By John M. McIntosh


ddie Endowment or Randy Retiree? Maybe both. In our practice we spend most of our time helping retirees create income from their investments. The rest of our time is spent helping endowments create income from their investments.

While endowments often plan for a longer period of time than retirees, in reality they are strikingly similar investment problems. Hmmm, wonder what each could learn from the other? Turns out, quite a bit. Since this magazine is directed toward retirees, let’s focus most on what retirees can learn from endowments. Today’s retirees need to plan for at least one spouse receiving a “rising stream of income” for maybe 25 to 35 or even 45 years. Again, both retirees and endowments are interested in creating a “rising stream of income” from their investments. The endowment folks seem to better understand the need to plan for inflation and make plans accordingly. Why the difference? One might be perspective. An endowment board takes one or two steps back from the situation and looks at the “big picture.”



Board members are often required to act as “fiduciaries” and make decisions by following “the prudent man rule.” To aid this process they will formulate and Investment Policy Statement and a Spending Policy

“emotional” decisions. My best advice to retirees is to view your need for income in retirement as an endowment board would. Put yourself and your spouse on the board of directors. Engage a competent advisor to help you craft your own personal Investment Policy Statement and Spending Policy Statement. Meet regularly and then relax knowing that you have a discipline in place that will guide you through what, we hope, will be a long, fulfilling retirement. Y

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.



Personal Care

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.

ince 1986, Individual Retirement Accounts have allowed Americans to contribute pre-tax (taxdeductible) money with tax deferred growth that allows IRA owners to accumulate a lump sum big enough to allow them to retire in comfort. When planned properly, IRAs can provide income for life and benefits for a spouse, and a long-lasting legacy for children and grandchildren. There are four basic phases to an IRA account: Accumulation Phase - We spend our working lives in this phase, saving as much as we can for the future. Voluntary Distribution - After age 59½, people can withdraw money from their IRA without penalty but must pay federal and state income tax. Mandatory Distribution - At age 70½, the IRS implements Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) rules that force people to withdraw a minimum percentage of retirement savings, including their IRA and employer-based plans. Beneficiary Distributions - When passing on your savings to a spouse or children, there are major tax differences between the two – no tax for a spouse, and up to an 80% tax rate for children.

provides tax free distributions during your life and to heirs at your death. In addition, there are no RMDs at age 70½ like a traditional IRA. It may be beneficial to convert a portion of your current IRA to a Roth during your lifetime or plan for a full conversion at death. RMD Planning – People often wait too long before realizing that the mandatory distributions at 70½ increase taxable income, can create additional taxes and potentially increase the amount of Social Security being taxed. We encourage everyone by the age of 65 to plan for their upcoming distributions to avoid tax problems. IRA Distribution Strategies – How and when you take out money can affect your tax situation and investment planning. We encourage everyone to have a structured distribution (income) plan for their IRA (and 401k, 403b) to guarantee income and/or to adjust

withdrawals each year as needed. Inherited Stretch IRA Planning – Under normal guidelines, an IRA left to children must be distributed within five years. Because every dollar withdrawn will be added to your heirs taxable income, this could create substantial tax penalties. However, you can create a plan that allows your children to stretch distributions over their lifetime to reduce annual taxable income and to provide increased return potential through ongoing tax deferred growth. IRA Trust Accounts – It is rarely a good idea to leave an IRA to a trust, and it’s a bad idea to leave one to a Living Trust. However, specific trusts are designed to allow you to leave an IRA to children and make sure it stays in the family in the event of death or divorce. This trust also removes the IRA from the children’s estate and protects it from creditors while providing you the ability to control how and when the distributions are paid out. Remember, an IRA is commonly the largest asset outside of a home for many people. Understanding the phases and strategies that can help protect and grow savings for yourself and your heirs is critically important. We recommend that you seek out a professional who specializes in IRAs to help design a plan. Good Luck! Y

• Back To School Program

When a new school year begins, MOH provides new backpacks filled with notebooks, pencils, glue sticks and hygiene products to these same 27 rural, elementary schools in Appalachia.

• Hope Scholars Program MOH awards $2,500 Hope Scholarships to 12 high school seniors from the school districts it serves. These seniors also receive a new laptop to help launch their college careers.

Mission of Hope also has a construction ministry, a spring outreach program and offers help with resource distribution and healthcare.
