50plus LIVING 2013


Introduction & Contents “Not in his goals but in his transitions is man great.” — Ralph Waldo Emerson Each of us must travel our own path toward our individual goals, but no one said those transitions must be made alone. In this spirit we present the 17th edition of 50plus LIVING, a free guide to the housing options available to the 50+ community in the Susquehanna and Delaware valleys. When a transition in living arrangements becomes necessary for you or a loved one, this publication is a useful aid in determining which direction makes the most sense for your family. Healthcare, residential, and community resources are abundant in Central and Southeastern Pennsylvania. 50plus LIVING organizes the information for the various communities, facilities, and centers available in your area into identifiable categories. These categories are then presented in descending order of independence: from entirely independent residential living, to continuing care retirement communities, to dementia/Alzheimer’s care facilities, to hospice services—and all points in between. Also included are available support services for caregivers, such as respite care and adult day centers. We designed 50plus LIVING to be an easyto-use guide and a valuable tool in your research. And we hope it helps ease one of life’s transitions along your steady, lifelong progression toward greatness! Regards,

Donna K. Anderson President, On-Line Publishers www.onlinepub.com

How to Use This Guide 1. Determine the type of need by referring to Types of Facilities, Care Options on these two pages. 2. Select the region desired on the map featured on pages 28 and 29. 3. Refer to the Index on pages 52 and 53 for type of facility or care option with corresponding page number. 4. Refer to care codes on pages 14, 22, 41, and 54.

Types of Facilities, Care Options A number of broad categories of care options and facilities are included in this guide. Terminology may vary from facility to facility. Residential living is for individuals who are responsible for their own basic needs. Nursing services are not available on site nor are residential communities affiliated with nursing care providers. No meal service or activity programs are offered. Active Adult Communities are residential-type communities for mature adults only. Individuals are responsible for their own basic needs. Nursing services are generally not available on site. Meal service is not provided. Outdoor maintenance service may be provided. CCRCs (Continuing Care Retirement Communities) are facilities offering a variety of residential living options in addition to comprehensive medical and nursing services. Many CCRCs are selfcontained communities offering educational and recreational activities, dining accommodations, banking facilities, transportation services, etc. Residents move between independent living, assisted living, and nursing care based on changing needs.

Retirement Communities are planned for those who are able to care for their own basic needs (or almost so) who choose to live in a community with other seniors. Organized social programs, meal service, transportation, recreational activities, and access to health and shopping are typical amenities. Nursing care is not usually provided. Some do offer assisted living/personal care designed for individuals who function on their own most of the time but may require assistance with medications, bathing, or dressing. Services offered are similar to those provided by assisted living/personal care facilities. Retirement communities can be freestanding or affiliated with a complex offering nursing care services. Personal Care Homes offer food, shelter, and personal assistance or supervision. They are ideal for people who do not want to forfeit independence and do not require the services in or of a licensed long-term care facility but do require assistance or supervision in activities of daily living (ADL). Some ADL provided are transferring in and out of a bed or chair, toileting, bladder and bowel management, personal hygiene, securing and managing healthcare, self-administering 50plus LIVING 2013


medication, and proper turning and positioning in a bed or chair. Assisted Living Residences are designed to provide an environment that combines housing and supportive services to allow residents to “age in place� without having to move to a licensed long-term care facility when their care needs increase. ALRs will have living units with kitchen capacity and private bathrooms and only one person per unit. An ALR may provide services that otherwise would be provided in a long-term care facility (Personal Care Homes may not). As of January 2011, changed regulations regarding licensure for assisted living communities became effective. Nursing/Rehab Facilities provide nursing care and related medical or other personal health services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to individuals who require full-time care or supervision but do not need more intensive, hospital-based care. Nursing/rehab facilities may be independent or part of another community. Individuals may be temporarily placed for rehabilitation following an illness, injury, or surgery or reside long term due to illness or aging. Nursing facilities offer skilled medical care under the supervision of licensed nurses, and at least one registered nurse must be on duty during the day. Custodial care is also offered and includes services that assist in the activities of daily living, which include bathing, dressing, using the bathroom, or transferring from a bed to a chair. Nursing centers are licensed by the State Department of Health. www.onlinepub.com

Acute Care Facilities are licensed as hospitals. They provide the highest level of care under a physician. Some of the services provided at an acute care facility include emergency services, critical care, medical/surgical services, and maternal/childbirth services. Dementia/Alzheimer’s services may be offered in either a nursing or residential care environment. Generally, staff are specially trained in memory care. Adult Day Centers offer programs in facilities or function as independent organizations. The services may include but are not limited to personal care, assistance with eating or using the toilet, assistance with taking medication, and social assistance. Centers offer a protective, supervised setting and generally operate during normal business hours. Respite Care provides caregiving opportunities on a short-term basis. Care may range from personal to nursing care. Home Care Services may be provided in a residential setting or as ancillary services, such as in personal care and assisted living or a nursing care environment. Services include skilled nursing services, therapies, and changing and reinforcing simple wound dressing, as well as non-medical services such as light housekeeping, transportation to doctor visits, shopping, respite, and more. Hospice Care is for families living and coping with life-limiting illnesses. Hospice provides professional treatment of pain and symptom management with support and counseling. It includes medical, psychological, and spiritual support.

Health Matters

Make Moving a Relative to Long-Term Care Less Painful Lisa M. Petsche

The time has come. You’ve had to do the up-until-now unthinkable: place a relative on the waiting list for a longterm care facility (commonly known as a nursing home). Many people don’t understand that this is a difficult decision. A damaging myth still prevails that families “dump” frail, older members in nursing homes to free themselves of the inconvenience of caregiving and get on with their lives. Quite the opposite is true. It’s typically a last resort, pursued after burnout or some other crisis has occurred. Painfully, your relative is likely to express anxiety and anger, accompanied by feelings of loss. She or he (the latter will be used from here on) will need time to grieve and adjust—as will you. Following are some ways to help with the transition. • Plan to spend admission day together. Tour the facility to 16

become familiar with the environment. • Bring personal belongings—a throw for the bed, a houseplant, or photos of favorite people and places, for example. • Ask what kind of toiletries and other personal items need to be supplied, and what type and amount of clothing is recommended.

• Visit often, especially in the early days, to provide support and reassurance. Develop a regular pattern so your relative knows when to expect you and can anticipate your next visit. Alternate days with other family members, and telephone in between visits, if you can’t get in as often as you would like.

• Find out if there are private spaces for visiting.

• Be prepared that your relative may have many complaints initially. If a concern seems legitimate, discuss it with staff and do some advocating if necessary. Otherwise, provide a listening ear, allowing him to vent. Be attuned to underlying feelings and empathize with them.

• Share as much as possible about your relative’s routines, likes, and dislikes. Also provide the following information to help staff engage him in conversation and build rapport: birthplace, past vocation and leisure interests, significant life events, and important people in his social network.

• If your relative asks you to take him home, gently but firmly reinforce that he needs more care than you can provide. Reassure him you’ll be returning soon, and plan what you’ll do together. If it’s feasible and you intend to follow through, remind him that he can come home for a visit. Don’t make false promises.

• Notify relatives and friends of the facility’s address and phone number and encourage them to call, write, or visit. Offer to join them for the first visit.

• To make it easier on both of you, time visits so you can depart when your relative is beginning a meal, heading off to an activity, or going to bed.

• Inquire about the activities schedule.

• Get to know the staff in order to develop a partnership of trust and mutual sharing. Show your appreciation if you’re pleased with their care. When you have a concern, express it calmly, ask for their perspective, and let them know what you would like to see happen. • Get to know other residents and family members, either informally or through participation in facility activities. Attend the next family council or support group meeting. • Recreate routines from home, such as playing cribbage, watching a favorite TV program together, or sharing a meal. • Bring in special foods—a homecooked meal or favorite takeout treat. • Plan activities outside of the institution. Go for a walk around the neighborhood or to a nearby park, or take a drive. If your relative uses a wheelchair, register him with the local accessible transportation service. Then you can take him shopping or to community events.

• Continue to include him in family celebrations. If your home isn’t accessible, choose a restaurant that is, or ask staff to help you plan a gathering onsite. • Spend time with friends and relatives who support your decision regarding placement. Family members of other residents as well as staff—especially the social worker—are also valuable sources of support. Initially you may need lots of reassurance that you have made the right decision. • Learn to manage the inevitable feelings of guilt. Remind yourself that your relative is benefiting from around-the-clock professional nursing care, therapeutic programming, and companionship. Just because you are no longer the hands-on caregiver does not lessen the importance of your role. With the heavy responsibility of primary caregiving lifted, you can focus your energy on meeting your relative’s emotional needs and enjoying your time together. Lisa M. Petsche is a clinical social worker and freelance writer specializing in eldercare issues.

Savvy Senior

Home Safety Solutions for Seniors Who Live Alone Jim Miller

Dear Savvy Senior, I’m interested in getting my mother one of those emergency call systems with a wearable push-button for her home in case she falls or needs help, but could use some help. What can you tell me? — SOS Dear SOS, The product and service you’re inquiring about is known as a “personal emergency response system,” or PERS. But with so many on the market, it can be a bit confusing figuring out which system is best for your parent. Here’s what you should know. 36

50plus LIVING 2013


} Pay attention to the small print and always ask for a detailed price quote.

} Senior Life Line Each year, one-third of seniors in the U.S. suffer a fall, often with serious consequences. Add in the fact that 11 million Americans age 65 and older live alone and we’ve got a serious problem on our hands. One possible solution: a PERS—which is essentially a wireless hotline to help. A PERS is a home-based emergency alert service that will connect your mother to a 24-hour call center with the push of a button. The transmitter (SOS button) is typically worn as a neck pendant, wristband, or belt clip. When pushed, it sends a signal to a receiver console that’s connected to the home telephone line (they don’t work with cell phones). When your mom pushes the button, the dispatcher at the call center evaluates her situation and will notify you, another relative, a caregiver, or 911, as needed. With most PERS setups, your mom can talk with the dispatcher from anywhere in the house through

the system’s receiver, which works like a powerful speakerphone. While a PERS can be a wonderful home device for elderly seniors, it does have its drawbacks. Many seniors don’t wear their SOS button regularly, and if they do have it on and fall, they still have to be alert enough to actually hit the button. Where to Look With all the different PERS models available today, the Internet is the best place to start your search. PERS units are available through national companies as well as local or regional providers. Local providers are usually run by hospitals or social service agencies. A typical Internet search will bring up only the national companies. Adding a town, county, or state to your search will help you find local or regional options. Also check with your Area Agency on Aging. It’s worth checking out both local and national providers because features, pricing, and quality will vary. Continued on next page

} Each year, one-third of seniors in the U.S. suffer a fall, often with serious consequences.

} Options and Costs In most cases, PERS equipment (receiver console and SOS button) is rented, but some companies offer the option to buy. Costs, too, will vary, but you can expect to pay a small setup or activation fee along with a monthly service/monitoring fee. Most companies give discounts for longer-term agreements, but be careful of contracts that lock you in. Some services may even offer discounted pricing options for lowerincome seniors. You’ll need to ask. And some companies may provide extras services (in addition to the basic PERS) such as check-in calls, wake-up calls, and medication reminders for an additional cost. When choosing a service, pay attention to the small print and always ask for a detailed price quote. Most health insurance plans, including Medicare, don’t cover PERS devices.

38

Home Monitoring If you’re looking for a more thorough service, check out “home monitoring systems.” These services combine the PERS with motion detectors (not cameras), placed in key areas of your mom’s home, that will let you know (via phone or email) if something out of the ordinary is happening. For example, if she didn’t get out of bed at her usual time, or went to the bathroom and didn’t leave, this could indicate a fall or other emergency. The great thing about this type of system is it requires no input from your mother, and you can check in on her anytime through their password-protected website. These monitoring systems, however, are more expensive than a PERS and are not covered by insurance.

Preventing Senior Falls Starts in the Bathroom

More than one in three seniors over age 65 falls each year, and the National Institute on Aging (NIA) says 80 percent of these falls are in the bathroom. Due to the multitude of unforgiving and slippery surfaces, bathrooms are very hazardous for the home. Knowing how to get in and out of tubs and showers properly and equipping homes with necessary

safety precautions can reduce senior falls, keep them out of the emergency room, and possibly extend their life. According to research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1.6 million older adults seek emergency care each year for fall-related injuries, fractures, or head trauma. In addition to potentially losing their

} Due to the multitude of unforgiving and slippery surfaces, bathrooms are very hazardous for the home.

} independence, seniors 65 years old and up have a 25 percent chance of dying within six months to a year if they fall and break a hip. Seniors are vulnerable to falls for many reasons—eyesight and reflexes aren’t as razor-sharp as they used to be, not to mention the balance issues posed by diabetes, heart disease, thyroid conditions, and various medications. One of the most effective ways to preserve balance is to stay active with an exercise regimen. Ask your doctor about exercises designed to improve balance, stability, and overall mobility, such as moderate yoga. But, another preventative method recommended by physicians is installing a shower or tub built around the unique needs of elderly adults. For example, many walk-in

showers have a foldable chair, flexible shower wand, grab bars, ultra-low step up, and other seniorfriendly features. Besides a customized shower or bath, NIA and the American Geriatrics Society advise the following bathroom safety precautions for seniors: • Non-slip rubber mats in front of sink, toilet, and shower/bath • Grab bars inside and outside of shower/bath and on either side of the toilet (these are much stronger than towel racks, which aren’t meant to support weight) • Bright lights that are easily accessible (NewsUSA)
