JUNE 29, 2011 • SENIOR LIVING | 3 There is no doubting it — Rim Country senior citizens like to have fun. These folks at the Senior Citizens Center are getting a real kick out of fixing a breakfast for the entire community to enjoy. Center members have a chance to get together for good times every day for lunch, Monday through Friday. They also have a variety of special interest groups for cards, dancing, computers and more. The same is true of the members of Payson Regional Medical Center’s Senior Circle and the Senior Citizens Affairs Foundation serving Pine and Strawberry. There are also plenty of clubs and organizations benefitting from senior members. Andy Towle photo

Welcome to Rim Country Senior Living Most of us in the Rim Country are senior citizens, at least according to oft-quoted statistics. That includes a lot of the folks here at The Rim Review. So, in planning what to include in this edition of our special Senior Living publication, we decided to include information that was of interest to us. We hope it will be of interest to you as well. The Rim Country is fortunate to have a number of organizations and businesses dedicated to making the lives of older residents healthy and happy, and when necessary, providing them with help in difficult times. The Payson Senior Center and the Senior Citizens Affairs Foundation in Pine both provide hot, nourishing meals for affordable prices Monday through Friday, and have Meals on Wheels programs to take food to the homebound. While the area’s seniors are the focus of these programs,

anyone, of any age, can take advantage of them. Read about the program serving Pine and Strawberry inside. The two organizations, along with the Payson Regional Medical Center Senior Circle, also offer venues where members can enjoy socializing, playing cards, other games, doing craft projects, exercise, dancing, learning about computers, safe driving, photography and more. They also make free and reduced-cost health screenings available to members. The Senior Circle has frequent travel programs too. Some are just day trips, others are for a night or two, and coming in November, its members have an opportunity to go to the Tuscany region of Italy for nine days. There is more about the Senior Circle inside. The area’s long-term care facilities also reach out to the

greater community with special programs, which are usually free of charge. The Rim Country Health & Retirement Community has a series of educational programs planned through the end of the year, you can find details inside. It also has an open gym program with supervised exercise. Payson Care Center also offers educational presentations from time to time. Hospice Compassus in Payson is a resource for everyone in the community. Individuals in need, or their family, friends, fellow church members and neighbors can contact Hospice with concerns about declining health. The staff can visit with you at no charge, make an assessment of the ailing individual’s needs and provide information about the resources that are available to help improve their health and quality of life. This issue has more details

about Hospice Compassus services for the community. The Caring Presence also has a number of special services to offer the community. It is a nonmedical, in-home care provider that can help keep seniors safe and independent in their own homes for longer. The staff is there to step in when family members are too far away or cannot find the extra time to do such things as meal preparation, homemaking, personal care, incidental care and companionship. Read more inside. Also inside, you will find information about the kinds of insurance you should encourage the young people in your family to have to build a strong financial foundation for the future. This article is provided by Tom Russell of Payson. Elsewhere, there are tips and information about maintaining an active, safe and healthy lifestyle; making that lifestyle more “green”; getting more from Medicare; and travel.

Hospice Compassus encompasses all with care by Teresa McQuerrey Rim Review editor

Hospice Compassus encompasses more than helping those in the last stage of life and their families, it also provides the community with a source of information about health care and services. The staff of Hospice Compassus is trained to help get everyone the right help needed. The community it serves goes beyond Payson and the surrounding area, it operates as far as Happy Jack and Forest Lakes, down in Young and east of Tonto Basin (just on the other side of the bridge). When helping determine and find the help needed for someone who is ailing and/or in failing health, a staff member will come to the individual’s home to make an assessment. The individual, a family member, a friend or neighbor, someone from the person’s church or anyone else who may suspect there might be something wrong, can make the initial contact with Hospice. The help could be anything from getting them transportation to the grocery store, getting them to the Senior Circle or Senior Center for socializing, arranging for Meals on Wheels or help around the house and yard or medical care. None of the services from Hospice cost anything, not even the hands-on care the staff gives its primary patients. “Nationwide only 40 percent of Medicare eligible patients ever receive the gift of hospice,” said Mary Jane Rogers, executive director of Hospice Compassus in Payson. “But all are eligible for it and hospice is the only service for which Medicare pays 100 percent,” she added. There is no co-pay, no deductible. Social workers can even help patients get all the added benefits available through the government that can provide financial relief from the pressures an end-of-life condition creates for the individual and their family. She said the goal of Hospice Compassus is to not let any Medicare hospice appropriate patient go without the gift of all the service can provide. “The community needs to know it. Physicians need to know it.” The care and comfort Hospice provides is most often in the patient’s home, but it can also be given to those in the area’s long-term care facilities. While the patient’s medical needs may be taken care of by the long-term care

staff, Hospice can give them the added support of visits by a chaplain, a social worker or a bereavement counselor. The bereavement counselor also works with the patient’s family with anticipatory grief and for as long as 13 months after the death of the loved one. Hospice Compassus will also provide care for patients at Hospice House on Mud Springs Road in Payson. The care at Hospice House is given when short-term medical management needs cannot be met at home or in a care center, such as when the prescribed pain management stops working or another medical crisis needs to be brought under control. When the medical situation is under control, the patient is returned home or to their care center. Patients will also come into the Hospice House for respite care when their caregiver needs a break or has their own medical condition (injury, surgery, etc.) for which they need care and recovery time. The respite care is provided for up to five days for the Hospice patient. “When we don’t have any patients, we will close the in-patient unit, which has happened a few days during the year ” Rogers said

“However, if we get a call for the unit, it can be opened and staffed within an hour,” said Kathleen Hughes, Hospice care consultant. That staff now includes two new associate medical directors — James

Schouten and David Cluff — working with medical director Paul Gilbert. With the addition of Schouten and Cluff, there is a medical director available for patients around the clock. There is also a new grief counselor, Jeanine Affeldt. The doctors joined Hospice in October; Affeldt came on board in December. “Schouten and Cluff are well established in the community and have really brought a great perspective and breath of fresh air (to us) and we’re really excited to have them here,” Rogers said. Affeldt has started a caregivers’ support group, open to everyone at no charge. She leads grief support group meetings as well. To learn more about Hospice Compassus, call (928) 472-6340 or stop by the Hospice House, 511 S. Mud Springs Road, Payson, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. If a weekend informational meeting is needed, those can be arranged by appointment as well. Hospice is always in need of volunteers, so those interested can call volunteer coordinator Patty Kaufman at the above number to learn about opportunities to help. Those who would like to make a financial contribution to Hospice can send it to Rim Country Hospice Foundation, P.O. Box 305, Payson, AZ 85547. Kaufman is also the contact to learn more about the foundation and making donations.

The need for non-medical in-home care Americans, including over 1.5 million Arizonans, born between 1946 and 1964 who are fast approaching retirement. The number of individuals who elect to remain in their homes rather than move to a retirement center continues to grow. Many individuals and their families choose in-home care out of a desire for a higher quality of life and independence. These individuals hire in-home care to provide a range of assistance for their loved ones such as bathing, dressing, grooming or feeding. The in-home care worker can also assist with daily chores such as shopping, meal preparation, laundry, housekeeping and companionship. The Caring Presence provides nonmedical in-home care for its clients in many areas of Arizona. Services offered include meal preparation, homemaking, personal care, incidental transportation and companionship. Using an in-home care provider allows the client to continue living as much of L

Imagine for a moment the following situation: Your 75-year-old mother has fallen and broken her hip. After leaving the hospital, who is going to be there to help her through recovery? She lives alone and needs help around the clock until she gets back on her feet, but you live out of town. This is just one of the many scenarios in which the need for non-medical in-home care comes into the picture. Non-medical in-home care services can benefit seniors, children, persons with disabilities, those with chronic health conditions, and anyone whose quality of life can be improved by having a caregiver help in their home. The overall goal is to provide effective, appropriate and cost-effective assistance to individuals enabling them to maintain their independence, comfort and security. In recent years, the level of care required by home care users has increased and is likely to continue to do so in the foreseeable future. The main cause of the increase is due to aging baby boomers — those 76 million

Caregivers employed by the agency are bonded, insured, certified in CPR and First Aid, TB tested, have obtained Fingerprint Clearance cards and have cleared a background check. The agency does the bookwork, provides the supervision and discipline, carries the insurance and ensures that all shifts are covered. The family always has been and still is the major provider of long-term care. This heavy burden should not be faced alone, and many caregivers need guidance, support and skills to manage the sometimes complex care. The quality of care your loved one receives is a joint effort between you and the care agency. Whether your mother suffers from a broken hip or you or another family member needs assistance, it’s comforting to know you can turn to a qualified non-medical in-home care provider. As the population continues to age, the need for non-medical in-home care will continue to grow. Choosing the right care will give your loved ones the quality of life they deserve. The Caring Presence values the confidence that our clients and their families have entrusted to us. Please call Tedi Flake at (928) 468-0600 to learn how our services will go “beyond expectations”.

PRMC Senior Circle welcomes new advisor by Teresa McQuerrey Rim Review editor

The events at the PRMC Senior Circle sometimes involve volunteers from the corps of Pink Ladies from the hospital, such as Pat Graser (right) helping a diner with condiments at the Father’s Day Barbecue.

AARP safe driving class; • Hear about important medical issues through the Lunch & Learn feature, presented from 11 a.m. to noon, one or two times a month; and • Enjoy discounts with a number of the area’s merchants and service providers, including membership at the Tonto Apache Gym, which is available to them at half the cost of the regular

registration fee. The Senior Circle always as a full calendar and the summer months, July through September, are packed. The following are just a few of the planned events. The upcoming Lunch & Learn events feature: Mo Elzein, director of laboratory services for PRMC, July 13; John Hancock, diabetes education group

leader at the Senior Circle, July 27; Jeanine Affeldt, grief counselor with Hospice Compassus, Aug. 10; Cynthia Booth, obstetrician and gynecologist, Aug. 24; Don Engler, chief of the Payson Police Department, Sept. 14; and Elizabeth Harris, from the Arizona Department of Aging and Adult L

Welcoming the arrival of summer, the 2,000-plus members of Payson Regional Medical Center’s Senior Circle also welcomed a new advisor. Jan Parsons joined the Senior Circle as its advisor on May 23, 2011. While she is new to the job, she is a familiar face in the community and has long been part of the PRMC family. She served on the hospital board and was its chairman when it became part of the CHS family and helped start the annual Women’s Health and Wellness Forum. A resident of Payson for 25 years, she recently retired from APS where she was the manager of energy delivery for northeast Arizona. Parsons admits she is still getting acclimated to her new job, but she is already singing the praises of the Senior Circle volunteers and its programs. The volunteers are a great group of people who are “energized, dedicated and like to have fun,” she said. The programs are far-reaching. The Senior Circle programs include educational opportunities, cards, exercise, dance, special interest groups and travel — there is a July trip set for Durango, Colo., which will include a trip on the Durango/Silverton Railway; visits to San Diego and Monument Valley in the early fall; and the big one — a 9-day trip to the Tuscany region of Italy in November. Parsons said through the Senior Circle, members get to: • Socialize at activities and through special interest groups; • Learn new skills in classes, such as the one on computers and the regular

ability insurance. A policy needs to protect one’s own occupation, not the ability to work just anywhere. Known as “own occupation” policies, they pay if one cannot perform the basic duties of his or her occupation. By comparing top companies, an independent health insurance broker can assist in finding the disability insurance policy that fits best given one’s occupation and needs. Health/Medical insurance

A Health Savings Account (HSA) qualified medical policy provides lower

premiums and powerful tax benefits. An insurance company provides the high deductible health plan; while one’s financial institution of choice provides the HSA account. Wells Fargo, for example, shines as a leading provider of HSA accounts. Unlike “Flexible Spending Accounts” in an employerbased medical plan, money not spent each year from the HSA account rolls over to the next year. You do not lose what you do not use. One receives a tax deduction the moment a deposit is made to the account, and one can use it for medical and dental expenses

incurred until satisfying the deductible. When compared to standard co-pay type health plans, premiums on HSA qualified high deductible plans tend to be significantly less. Over time, the savings and tax benefits snowball. One can own both an HSA and an IRA. Summary

As seniors, our health insurance selections involving Medicare and prescription plans, medigap and long-term care insurance have entirely different considerations. However, this triangle of protection for our grandchildren,

consisting of term life insurance, own occupation disability insurance, and an HSA qualified medical plan, can help launch them on a course of wise financial management, while at a tender age. Please feel welcome to make copies of this article, and share it with your grandchildren. About the author

Seniors caring for family, friends in Pine/Strawberry by Teresa McQuerrey Rim Review editor

The Senior Citizens Affairs Foundation (S.C.A.F.) was set up to run the Pine Community Center more than 20 years ago. The S.C.A.F. also, semi-officially, stands for seniors caring about family & friends. That semi-official name more aptly reflects what the staff and volunteers of the organization do for the communities of Pine and Strawberry and neighboring areas. The Pine Community Center includes a thrift shop and dining hall, which benefit all residents of the area. It is also site of the Pine Cultural Hall, where many special events and educational programs are presented, and the Pine Strawberry Museum. The grounds of the community center are also the scene for the popular arts and crafts festivals presented by the PineStrawberry Arts & Crafts Guild over long holiday weekends through the summer. The next will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, July 2 and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday, July 3. The main summer fund-raiser for the S.C.A.F. is selling Navajo tacos during the major holiday weekends in conjunction with the festivals. The thrift shop, which generates important operating revenue for the S.C.A.F., is regularly open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during special events. The S.C.A.F. is a member of the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Pine/Strawberry Business Community. As a member of the P/S BC, the thrift shop also participates in the Second Saturday Shop Hop in Pine, so is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day. The Pine/Strawberry Thrift Shop is known for quality items at great low prices. The dollar can truly go far at the store. The store manager said it has shoppers come from all over to find bargains. The S.C.A.F. is dedicated to the enjoyment and well being of the citizens of the Pine/Strawberry community, with a special focus on those 50 and older, but it continues to strive to serve all ages. Its mission statement further outlines what it does for the community: encourage and provide social activities; provide economical and nutritious meals; provide educational serv-

Care facilities reach out with education, more by Teresa McQuerrey Rim Review editor

Naturally, the focus of the community’s long-term care facilities is primarily the medical services provided patients, however, there is also an effort to serve the area’s greater population. This year, Rim Country Health and Retirement Community began an outreach program with classes and an open gym. Presented Thursdays, at no charge, classes are offered from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. the first Thursday of the month and from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. the third Thursday; open gym is held from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. the second Thursday and from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. the fourth Thursday. Open gym requires a written statement from the participant’s physician clearing them for exercise. The service is a supervised exercise program led by Lisa Thompson, physical therapy assistant, rehab director for Rim Country Health and personal trainer, along with Shaye Gurrera, certified occupational therapist assistant. Thompson leads most of the classes remaining for 2011. The upcoming

classes include: July – Body Mechanics, Safe Lifting Techniques, and Balance Training – Throughout the day, everyone lifts items of various sizes and weights without concern of causing possible back injury. It is usually post back attack or spine injury when someone becomes aware of the importance of proper posture and body mechanics while lifting. This class teaches prevention of future back injury during lifting. August – Caregiver Education – Caring for another person is often the most challenging and stressful thing in which one can participate. The welfare of a dependent is directly linked to the well being of the caregiver. This class will focus on multiple areas of care giving and assist the caregiver in also caring for themselves. Gurrera will assist Thompson in leading this class. September – Joint Replacement Surgery; What to Expect from an Extended Rehab Stay – Joint replacement rehabilitation is necessary to ensure the best possible outcomes and optimal return to normal activities of daily living. Research documents that

patients have improved outcomes and recover quicker when they know what to expect and are involved in their recovery care. October – Living with Alzheimer’s disease – Caregiving for an individual with Alzheimer’s is unique in every case as the disease affects everyone somewhat differently. A caregiver’s responsibilities vary from making financial decisions to helping a loved one get dressed. Handling these duties is rewarding and challenging. The learning of caregiving skills can ensure that the loved one feels supported and is as fulfilled as possible. In this class, the caregiver will also find avenues to preserve their own well being. November – Wheelchair Positioning and Postural Strengthening, lead by Duwayne Spitzke – Since an estimated 25 million people have mobility impairments, there is a great need for wheeled mobility devices and education on their usage. The independence level and overall function of an individual is greatly influenced by having the proper wheelchair. Seating and positioning promotes good posture,

improves digestion, breathing and aids in prevention of pressure sores. It is also crucial for health, comfort and optimal activities of daily living. The class will provide information on postural correction and exercise, risk analysis, wheelchair accessories and instruction on seating and positioning. December – Emotional Well Being and Activity – It is a lifelong process to improve one’s circumstances which allows improvement in life quality. This class will assist in identifying “emotional gaps” and implementing solutions that promote overall emotional health while staying active in mind, body and soul. While many of the topics are of special interest to older residents of the Rim Country, they are open to everyone, regardless of age. Rim Country Health & Retirement Community implemented the two-part program with the hope of coinciding with the increased focus on improving everyone’s physical fitness awareness and safety.

Boomer basics: Easy and affordable tips to maintain an active, safe and healthy lifestyle Today’s baby boomers are growing older gracefully. And although more than 10,000 boomers each day will turn 65, most are not letting their age stop them from maintaining active and healthy lifestyles. Here are a few ways to ensure that you (or the ones you love) stay healthy, active and safe: • Maintain regular health screenings and immunizations. While it is important to have regular check-ups with your family doctor, it’s equally important to monitor vitals more frequently. Luckily, most local pharmacies offer free blood pressure and cholesterol checks, as well as seasonal flu shots. • Fight against falls. Falls are the most common cause of hospital visits for those older than 65, according to the Home Safety Council. To help prevent falls in the bathroom — while maintaining stylish decor in your home — add new Grab Bars with Integrated Accessories from Moen Home Care or similar manufacturers. These unique products combine functional acces-

sories, such as a shelf, towel bar and toilet paper holder, with the safety of a grab bar. • Travel safety. Once you’ve updated your own bathroom with safety features, be sure that you are surrounded with these safety devices when you’re visiting others or on vacation. Products such as the Suction Balance Assist Bar from Moen Home Care, or similar manufacturers offer a suction design that easily attaches directly to smooth, flat surfaces for a firm, secure grip in danger zones and easily unlocks from the wall for convenient transport when traveling away from home, staying with family or in a hotel or motel. • Ensure help is a call away. Cell phones are not just for social uses, they are a valuable emergency response tool — and they don’t have to come with a pricey monthly bill. In fact, plans are available for as low as $10 per month without a contract to AARP members . • Cease bad habits. Smokers will die 14 years sooner than non-smokers,

Is your pot of gold in your jewelry box?

reports the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. No matter if you’ve been smoking for years or decades, your body will be better off if you stop. • Instill healthy habits. Being healthy doesn’t have to involve major lifestyle changes. For example, swap high-fat or high-calorie versions of your favorite foods with lower-fat, lowercalorie versions. Or, stock your fridge with healthy fruits and vegetables for snacks. These small diet changes can make big differences in your health. • Boost your activity levels. This does not mean running a marathon — but it does mean getting your body moving. Walking, playing golf or any other enjoyable activity that boosts your heart rate is a step in the right direction. • Keep your mind moving. Cognitive performance levels drop earlier in countries that have younger retirement age, according to a study published by the RAND Center for the Study of Aging and the University of Michigan, but if you are no longer in the

workforce, don’t worry. Just be sure to keep your brain busy with activities that combine social, physical and intellectual stimulation: for instance, card and board games, group hikes or water aerobics, book discussion groups or even attending community meetings of the area’s town councils and school boards. The Rim Country has a great array of clubs and organizations open to just about everyone and providing tremendous opportunities for social, physical and intellectual interaction. Check the listings on the Almanac and Organizations pages in every issue of the Payson Roundup for upcoming events and groups that meet regularly and invite interested residents to learn more about them. By following these simple tips, you can ensure the golden years will be happy, healthy and safe. For more information on Moen Home Care safety products, visit www.moen .com/homecare.

‘Green’ a way of living for seniors for a while ‘The senior demographic is quite possibly the best generation to emulate when trying to live an environmentally responsible lifestyle. That’s because so many of the guidelines for being green are concepts that have been a part of seniors’ lives for decades. A portion of today’s seniors grew up during the Depression, when recycling and conservation weren’t the trends du jour, but survival strategies. In a time when money was scarce, many people made due with the resources they were dealt, stretching dollars just to stay afloat. Many of the concepts associated with today’s environmental movement are strikingly similar to the ones employed during the Depression. The behaviors of an elderly parent or grandparent that may have seemed eccentric or odd at one time are now turning out to be what many people are embracing in order to live green. Concepts like relying on reusable handkerchiefs instead of disposable tissues; reusing lightly-soiled napkins; collecting discarded items from the curb and repairing them for renewed use; saving

cans or food jars and using them to store other items; buying local products from smaller vendors; and similar things are methods of living ingrained in the persona of many older people. Frugality and awareness of what things cost and what constitutes waste are other concepts seniors know well. Many have never adapted to the notion that products are disposable, preferring instead to hold onto appliances, electronics, clothing and other items because they still have utility, not because the current season dictates they should be upgraded. In 2008, Harris Interactive polled Baby Boomers ages 45 to 62 about their interest in the environment. Ninety-four percent of respondents said they took steps in the past 6 months to do something green. More than 80 percent were concerned about the environmental legacy that would be left for their grandchildren. While many seniors are going green today for altruistic reasons, it also makes good financial sense. Recycling items, conserving utilities and fuel and

making smart choices can stretch a fixed income even further. Choosing to walk or ride a bike instead of getting behind the wheel may be not only environmentally friendly, but it’s financially savvy as well. Here are some ways of living straight out of the Great Depression that can be put to use today. • Use the milkman. Although it may seem like the milkman is extinct, milk and other dairy products can still be delivered straight to a person’s home from a local dairy or farm. Adding reusable milk bottles reduces the reliance on disposable containers, while buying local cuts down on the fuel costs necessary to transport products. • Pass down clothing. Clothing that is gently worn can be passed down to children or even donated. • Walk. During the Depression, cars were a luxury many people could not afford. Walking or taking a bus or train were some popular modes of transportation, and such options are still available today.

insurance...

Wouldn’t you rather have a choice? THE OTHER GUYS

• Use cloth diapers and linens. Reusable items, like cloth diapers, handkerchiefs and linens, are more environmentally responsible. • Get outdoors. Instead of relying on television, which had yet to be invented during the Depression, children and adults went outdoors to socialize and have fun. • Open the windows. Instead of relying heavily on air conditioning, try opening the windows on nice days and let some fresh air in. • Use clothes lines. Clothes dryers use about 10 to 15 percent of domestic energy in the U.S. A clothesline can help reduce electric bills and energy consumption. • Get into gardening. If you can grow what you eat, that reduces the dependence on commercially produced and harvested crops. Many elements of the Go Green movement are similar to those employed during the Depression, when survival mandated people reuse and recycle items. From ARA Content

More with Medicare get free preventive care The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) recently released a new report showing that more than five million Americans with traditional Medicare — or nearly one in six people with Medicare — took advantage of one or more of the recommended preventive benefits now available for free, thanks to the Affordable Care Act. Medicare has launched a nationwide public outreach campaign, including a letter to doctors and a new Public Service Announcement that will raise awareness about all of the important preventive benefits now covered at no charge to patients, including the new Annual Wellness Visit benefit created by the Affordable Care Act. “The Obama Administration is committed to helping increase the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life, said CMS administrator Donald Berwick, M.D. “Even in your 70s, 80s or beyond, you can reduce your risk of disability and chronic illness if you take care of yourself. With the new free Annual Wellness Visits and free preventive care, people with Medicare have the

tools to take common-sense steps to take control of their health. “Further, it’s important to get the tests which can spot a serious illness early when it can be best treated,” said Dr. Berwick. “These preventive screenings are critical, and we want physicians to take this opportunity to help their older patients understand how necessary they are.” “The Administration on Aging network of service providers are the ‘boots on the ground’ in reaching people on Medicare,” said Assistant Secretary for Aging Kathy Greenlee. “These providers see Medicare beneficiaries every single day at a variety of settings across the country, and serve a diverse group population. I am committed to ensuring that the Medicare beneficiaries we serve are aware of and take advantage of their Medicare preventive benefits.” According to the report, over 5.5 million beneficiaries in traditional Medicare used one or more of the preventive benefits now covered without cost-sharing including, most prominently, mammograms, bone density

screenings, and screenings for prostate cancer. In 2011, Medicare began covering an Annual Wellness Visit at no cost to Medicare beneficiaries. As part of that visit, beneficiaries and their physicians can review the patient’s health and develop a personalized wellness plan. More than 780,000 beneficiaries received an Annual Wellness Visit between Jan. 1 and June 10. Additionally, more seniors have used the Welcome to Medicare Exam this year — 66,302 beneficiaries had taken advantage of the benefit by the end of May 2011, compared to 52,654 beneficiaries at the same point in 2010 — a 26-percent increase. A renewed push toward prevention is the latest step toward CMS’s fulfillment of its “Three-Part Aim”: Better care and better health at lower cost through improvement in health care. Roughly 70 percent of Medicare beneficiaries had at least one chronic condition in 2008, while as many as 38 percent had between two and four chronic conditions, and 7 percent had five or more. They see an average of 14 dif-

ferent doctors and fill an average of 50 prescriptions or prescription refills a year. Preventing chronic disease among the Medicare population would not only improve their health and quality of life, it could help save an estimated two-thirds of the $2 trillion the U.S. spends treating preventable long-term illness today. The new Annual Wellness Visit can help spark the beginning of an ongoing conversation between patients and their doctors on how to prevent disease and disability. At this visit, beneficiaries can review their histories and make sure their primary care doctor knows about their other providers and prescriptions. They can also talk about the pros and cons of getting an influenza, pneumococcal or hepatitis B vaccination, or find out whether a diabetes test, a bone mass measurement, or any of several cancer screenings would be right for them. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, Medicare now covers many of these services without cost to patients. Learn more at www.Medicare.gov or at www.healthcare.gov.

ROAD TRIP! A mature dude’s guide to roaming Work, kids, working out, taking care of the house, and a hairline that’s heading for the back of your collar — it’s enough to make a guy understand why some men feel the urge to buy an outrageously impractical sports car at this stage of life. But you don’t need a mid-life crisis. What you need is a road trip. Road trips are a rite of passage for young men everywhere, but college dudes shouldn’t be the only ones who get to enjoy this uniquely American kind of adventure. If skinny neckties and big hair were in style the last time you took a road trip with your buds, it may be time to toss a duffel in the truck bed, round up your amigos and hit the highway. A few practical measures can help ensure your more mature road trip is still fun and works for everyone: Packing it in

Your days of cramming six guys and all their gear into a barely drivable, high-mileage sub-compact are probably over. A reliable yet fun-to-drive pickup is perfect for your grown-up road trip with the guys. And since your stuff is probably going to be worth more than what you toted around during your college days, be sure to protect it. A lockable roll-up cover, like the tonneau cover line by Access Cover, will keep your belongings protected from the elements — including criminal elements — while you’re on the road. Plus, a truck bed cover can help improve your vehicle’s gas mileage. As for what to pack, be sure to include an emergency roadside kit, first aid kit and any medications that you regularly need. Bring along a GPS device and your trusty mobile L

Planning your road trip NOW IT’S TIME FOR YOU TO From page 19

phone so you can stay on track and in touch. You might also consider a set of dressier clothes if your dining tastes have matured since your fast-food days. Finely tuned machines

In the old days, you might have motored through the night with just a few hours of sleep and several cups of coffee to keep you going — and that was part of the thrill. These days, however, you probably appreciate a more relaxed pace, which includes sleeping well and eating right. Keeping yourself “well tuned” can help ensure you enjoy your road trip as much as possible. You’ll also want to make sure your vehicle is in top condition. It’s a good idea to change the oil, and check the tire pressure and coolant system before you get on the road. If your vehicle is due for some routine maintenance, have it done before you start your trip. Have a plan, man

How many road trips of your youth ended up at a destination other than the

one you had in mind when you started out? Meandering can be fun, but having a plan can be rewarding too. Your taste in destinations has probably matured, so consult with your traveling partners and consider spots that appeal to your current interests and finances. For example, you may have developed an affinity for wine, where once you preferred beer. A tour of wine country may be in order. Perhaps you’ve discovered an interest in history? Consider taking the guys to a Civil War re-enactment or to one of the country’s great historic cities, like Savannah, San Antonio, San Diego or even New York or Chicago. Use a GPS or online resource to preplan your route and make sure the people you love know where you’ll be along the way. The mechanics of your mature road trip may be a world away from the flyby-the-seat-of-your-pants style you favored in your college days. But a road trip can be a great way to relax and reconnect with friends no matter what stage you’re at in life.
