Letter from the Publisher Dear Readers, Thank you for picking up our NEW edition of Retirement Connection. After printing our Portland/Vancouver and Salem editions for more than 5 years, we are excited to finally be serving the Southern Oregon community. We are honored that Asante has adopted our guide as their “official resource” and the guides will be distributed through their medical centers, clinics, and outreach. We work closely with local hospitals and the 50+ community to ensure we are the preferred local resource with print, website and a professional network to connect providers. The guide is organized into three primary color coded sections; and includes a “How to use this Guide” on the following page to assist your navigation. Our goal is to be the most comprehensive local resource for the community, as well as the care providers. I encourage you to visit www.RetirementConnection.com for: enhanced search options, event calendars, a thorough glossary of terms, additional articles, and links to local provider emails and websites. We will also continue to update the website daily with new listings or changing information. Retirement Connection is provided free of charge because our sponsors/ advertisers have provided the financial support to print the guide, create a website and provide networking opportunities for providers.

Our staff, pictured left to right: Meghan, Jill, Lyman, Amy, Kaite, Krista

Please return the favor by contacting our sponsors when you encounter a need for their services. We hope you find this a valuable resource and that you will share your feedback with us. Your insight and support are very valuable to help us update and add more resources. Notify us if we have missed any details, and to also recommend possible locations that would benefit from receiving the guide. Additional copies of the guide may be found at: Area Agency on Aging offices, Libraries, Senior Centers, Hospitals, Housing Communities, and local events. We have printed 50,000 total copies of this annual publication. If your physician’s office, church, or other organization would like additional copies, we are happy to provide these at no cost. Please call us, visit our website or email us at mktg@RetirementConnection.com to order additional copies.

2. Community Resources & Services This section is alphabetical, and includes hundreds of services and organizations that work with older adults, those with disabilities and their families. This section includes everything from Caregiver Resources, Social Security, Care Management, Senior Centers, Upcoming Events, etc.

3. Housing Begin by reviewing the Housing Definitions at the beginning of the section to determine which level of care best fits your needs. Then turn to the easy to read comparison grids; which are separated into 4 primary care levels: Independent Living, Assisted Living/Residential Care, Memory Care & Skilled Nursing/Intermediate Care. The communities are separated by county so you can quickly search a specific geographic area. If you are unsure where to begin, you may want to contact a Housing Placement & Referral Specialist, found at the beginning of the housing section. Additionally the guide offers ▶ Many featured articles written by local experts, a Caregiver Checklist, and a “Request for Help” form.

Home Care Definitions: Cardiac Care refers to services including patient assessment, specific diet information, and management of the disease process, medication management and education. Cardiac rehabilitation is a program designed to help a person with heart disease return to health and modify risk factors to prevent further heart damage. Diabetic Management refers to services including patient assessment, diet information, management of the disease process, medication management and education on all of the above. Services are provided by a Registered Nurse under the supervision of an M.D. Some agencies may employ certified diabetic nurse instructors or cardiac care specialty RN’s. Home Health Care includes skilled nursing services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech language therapy and medical social services. A home health care agency may choose to be medicare certified to be reimbursed for their services. Home health agengies may also teach you how to care for yourself. Hospice is a comprehensive program of care to patients and families facing a life threatening illness. Hospice emphasizes palliative rather than curative treatment. The dying are comforted. Professional medical care is given, and sophisticated symptom relief provided. Very few Home Health Agencies are also licensed for Hospice care. In-Home Care/Personal Care is care related to activities of daily living, including: mobility, eating, toileting, bathing and personal hygiene, dressing and grooming or cognition support. These services are typically not covered by medical insurance and do not require a physician’s order.

Intravenous Therapy is any medical treatments/medications that need to be introduced to the body via a patient’s veins. Numerous IV Therapies can be provided inhome under supervision of a MD. Some of these include: inter-infective/antibiotic therapies, hydration therapy, pain management, chemotherapy and central line care and maintenance. Medicaid Certified: A joint Federal and state program that helps with medical costs for some people with limited income and resources. Medicaid Certified facilities can offer services to individuals receiving Medicaid benefits in exchange for reimbursement from Medicaid. Some people qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid (these people are called “dual eligibles”). Medical social services are assistance with social and emotional concerns related to an illness, including counseling or help finding community resources.

Medicare Certified facilities can offer services to individuals receiving Medicare benefits in exchange for reimbursement from Medicare. A Physicians order is required to be reimbursed by Medicare. Medicare is a Federal insurance health insurance program for those 65 and over, or who meet other criteria.

Psychiatric Services refers to the agency's ability to offer services related to psychiatric support with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental illness. Services may include counseling or administering of medications. Respite Care is short-term or temporary. It is designed to give families a break from the stress of daily caregiving. Respite care can be for a few hours, overnight, or for days. The amount of care changes with the needs of the family and the ill or disabled person.

Nurse Delegated Tasks A licensed registered nurse may delegate specific nursing care tasks to qualified nursing assistants in a community-based and in-homecare settings. One task taught and delegated to one caregiver for one client. Before delegating a task, the registered nurse delegator must determine that specific criteria are met and ensure that the patient is in a stable and predictable condition.

Telemedicine is a developing application of clinical healthcare, where medical information is transferred and assessment derived through interactive audiovisual media. Telemedicine can also be used to conduct examinations and remote medical procedures, such as: tracking blood sugar, automated blood pressure and weight checks.

Therapy Services (ST, PT, OT, RT) Speech Therapy (ST) refers to services to assess and treat speech and swallowing disorders. Speech therapy can treat speech, language, cognitive skills or swallowing. Physical Therapy (PT) refers to services for the treatment and rehabilitation process where a physical therapist will often stretch, strengthen, facilitate muscles, challenge balance, test coordination abilities, teach home exercise programs to enhance basic mobility skills; to help lessen disability and pain and improve overall function and quality of life. Occupational Therapy, (OT) refers to services to assess and treat patients to help them develop, recover, or maintain daily living and work skills. Occupational therapists help clients not only to improve their basic motor functions and reasoning abilities, but also to compensate for permanent loss of function.

Can the VA pay for in-home caregivers? Answer: Yes. The Department of Veterans Affairs has a Pension program to help certain categories of veterans and spouses with their in-home care needs. Although not everyone is eligible, these Pension benefits can be of significant value and you may be eligible. “Veterans have earned this benefit by their service to our nation,” said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Jim Nicholson. “We want to ensure that every veteran or surviving spouse who qualifies has the chance to apply.”

What: One such benefit, “Aid and Attendance” is available to a veteran or widow(er) of a veteran, providing that the veteran served at least 90 days of active military service (at least one day being during wartime) and was not dishonorably discharged. Many vets will have served during “wartime”. Who: In addition to the service requirement, the person applying for benefits (“the Claimant”) must be unable to do some things on their own, like: dress/undress, walk safely, take care of personal hygiene, or toileting; OR Claimant’s mental capacity could be endangering the Claimant if unaided. When a Claimant fits those standards, the VA examines the Claimant’s finances. The Claimant’s countable family income, less annual medical expenses, (including caregiver costs) must be below a yearly limit set by law. The Claimant’s

22

bank savings (around $80k or less) and other assets are also considered. Unlike Medicaid, which sets a limit on “countable resources” at $2000, the Aid and Attendance benefit may be granted even if the veteran has money in the bank.

How: Applying for VA benefits is often complicated and may take some time. Although you can apply for benefits on your own, you are better off seeking assistance from someone who knows how to get through the red tape. A caregiving agency like At Home Senior Solutions can get through the red tape for you. They can even get you the money to pay for a certain amount of care giving costs before the VA benefit kicks in, so caregiving costs aren’t out of your pocket. If you don’t qualify for the VA, At Home Senior Solutions can see if you can get caregivers through the Medicaid benefit. Call today to find out how they can provide information on the best strategies to maximize an award and keep your loved one safe at home.

Adult Day Centers‌ A Great Way to Increase Quality Of Life for the Whole Family Being a family caregiver is a twenty four hours a day, seven days a week job. It is both rewarding and exhausting. Adult day centers provide life enriching day care for seniors and adults with disabilities. Providing care for a loved one at home has many challenges. Both the caregiver and the loved one can become isolated and cut off from the outside world. Adult day centers provide an excellent way to expand both their worlds through care, education and support. A broad spectrum of services is provided by adult day centers. Services include social stimulation, cognitive therapies, spiritual groups, physical activity, and nutrition. Each center also helps in activities of daily living, such as toileting, redirection, and eating assistance. A typical adult day care recipient is picked up from their home or brought to the center by family, where they take part in daily programing designed to meet their physical needs and stimulate their minds. This allows the family caregiver time to care for themselves, leaving them refreshed and ready to take on their roll as caregiver again when their loved one returns home. Through daily respite care adult day centers are able to help caregivers recharge and provide better care.

28

Affordable care centers allow people to stay in their homes longer at a fraction of the cost of community based care placement programs. Adult day services can be funded several ways. Many families pay privately, however, both the state and the county have made funds available for adult day centers through Medicaid, the Family Caregiver Support Grant and Oregon Project Independence. Long term insurance may also pay for a portion of adult day care. The director at the adult day center of your choice will direct you to funding sources which might be available to you. When selecting a day center consider your geographical location and the needs of your loved one. Take the time to tour several locations to ensure both of you feel comfortable at the location. Adult day centers have a wealth of information about other community resources; they will direct you to any additional services you might benefit from. Many family caregivers continue giving care at an expense to their own health and well-being. Adult day centers allow for respite for the caregiver, increasing the quality of life for the whole family. Article written by: Mt.

Massage is the Oldest Form of Healing Pain Relief Massage sessions can support your body’s natural ability to heal itself The human touch, one person reaching out to another demonstrating concern or to alleviate discomfort predates ‘modern medicine’ by thousands of years. Most people, almost without exception, feel improvement when they are the recipients of appropriate massage therapy techniques. Few categories of health issues will not be improved by a skilled professional massage practitioner, but many will be. Oregon has a rigorous licensing system mandated by our state’s regulations which contributes to the high standards required of those who must pass not only one but two State Board examinations; a written test and a hands-on practical exam. Oregon is one of only six states nationwide to have a two-step Board Examination process. This degree of standards, education and training helps foster a greater appreciation of Oregon’s Licensed Massage Therapists. For patients of all ages, reducing pain, tension (stress), mental and physical fatigue is often the goal of therapeutic massages. With the correct procedure, one can tackle such ailments as the lowering of blood pressure, improving postural alignment, increasing lung capacity and lung activity, aiding digestion and elimination, strengthening and supporting endocrine production. There’s no doubt that in addition to relaxing you, a good massage can bolster your immune system and aid in your overall health.

Understanding the need for interdisciplinary cooperation is essential for achieving optimal goals and outcomes. Frequently there are opportunities to combine conventional and ‘alternative’ approaches. It is unlikely for only one treatment system to have the ability to address every condition or issue. In more advanced methods of therapeutic massage there needs to be an understanding of the links between many chronic conditions and a variety of contributing factors. As we age, many older adults consider the aches and pains they have from day to day just something they will have to live with. This does not have to be the case. Most people are surprised to learn that their discomfort simply comes from postural issues alone. This can be addressed, without the use of medications, through specialty treatment methods such as Myofascial Release, a system of gently relaxing and realigning the muscles to improve and restore more functional posture. With the application of Myofascial Release the goal is to return you to a pain free active life. Article provided by: Dennis Specht, LMT A Balanced Body 541-282-3456 www.ABalancedBody.org

Funeral & Cemetery Arrangements: Why Should You Pre-Arrange Thorough and careful pre-planning for your funeral, memorial service, cemetery and end-of life choices gives you enhanced peace of mind knowing there will be adequate funds to cover funeral expenses and that your wishes, beliefs, and preferences will be met. There are many benefits of preplanning and we have covered a few below.

Locking In Costs vs Inflated Costs: Pre-planning and pre-funding generally ensures that your funeral and cemetery arrangements are completely paid for at today’s prices. The funeral and cemetery industry faces inflation, which drives costs up each year. National statistics show that cemetery and funeral costs are expected to double every 7-10 years. By pre-planning, you lock in today’s cost rather than forcing your family to pay inflated costs upon your passing.

Making Rational Decisions Together vs Emotional Decisions Alone: Making these decisions ahead of time allows for more careful consideration of all the options in choosing the funeral and cemetery arrangements that are right for you and your family. Statistics show that more often than not, a widow is left to make these decisions in the worst time of his or her life, upon the loss of their best friend and life partner. These are not times that anyone should be making any kind of financial decision.

50

Telling Your Own Story vs Someone Telling It For You: Thoughtful pre-planning of your arrangements allows you to make choice based on your preferences. Making your wishes known in advance will reduce the number of decisions that your loved ones will have to make and may help make this time of loss less stressful.

Pay As Affordable vs Cash Up Front: Many people assume that savings or life insurance policies will cover the costs of one’s funeral and burial, but when a death occurs, these costs must be paid up front before services are rendered. Pre-planning allows you to pay as affordable with terms to meet your budget verses your family having to pay the entire amount at the time of your passing.

Peace of Mind: Knowing that all of your affairs are in order will give your loved ones peace of mind. This peace of mind is the greatest gift of love you can provide your family. Pre-planning can ease the burden for surviving family and friends eliminating the added stress of indecision and uncertainty when death occurs. Advance planning is easier, it’s kinder and it is always more economical. Article Provided by: Kristi Carson Perl Funeral Home & Siskiyou Memorial Park 541-772-5488 www.PerlFuneralHome.com

Speaking about death is one of the hardest topics for most people to discuss. Fortunately there are services available to help people through the challenging times when you lose a loved one. Hospice isn’t a place; it allows a loved one to be comfortable while giving others methods to cope with a loved one’s illness. Here are some reasons why working with hospice is the best decision you will ever make.

How Hospice Helps When a cure is no longer possible, and an individual needs comfortable care to pass through this life to the next, hospice service is there. Hospice will help to provide companionship to loved ones that may live far away. Hospice will help an aging loved one to have a comfortable end to their life, and they will help the loved ones left behind to learn how to cope with their death.

What Is Hospice? Hospice provides comfort and palliative care to support a patient and their loved ones. They make it easier on a patient to meet the final goals of their life, and create memories with their loved ones that are timeless. The nurses care for a loved one with proper pain management techniques. Social workers will assist with emotional and mental health problems, and planning the end of life. Understanding how to get to a peaceful place within yourself at the end of a loved one’s life makes it easier for them to pass from this life happily.

Learn to Care for a Loved One It’s not easy to face the end of your life, or to watch a loved one face the end of theirs. Illnesses can make the final months of life

harder for loved ones. Contacting hospice will allow you to learn how to care for a loved one. You can make your loved one more comfortable at home. Hospice will provide coping mechanisms for loved ones to understand the illnesses their loved one is facing. Having appropriate education and tools to work with will make you into a better caregiver.

Improve Quality of Life We value life! Several patients are unable to get through the day without pain medication and regular doctor visits. Patients with several demands can exhaust their caregivers. Hospice can help improve the quality of life for a dying loved one, and the caregivers. Hospice services will not hasten nor prolong death, we simply help our patients find a comfortable end to their life with the assistance of a trained medical staff and family support.

Hospice Isn’t a Place, It's Comfort

Call Hospice Early Unfortunately many people wait until the final days of death before calling hospice services. This can leave a person passing without accomplishing some of their life goals, or allowing them to create memories with loved ones. We urge you to contact hospice services before a person is close to their death. We focus on improving the quality of life and on the patient rather than the disease. Don’t wait for a doctor to recommend hospice, call now to discuss your options, and enjoy the moments of your life with your loved ones.

What to do in a Heart Attack If someone is having symptoms of a heart attack, there are two things you need to do immediately: Call 9-1-1 and, if the person is non-responsive, start hands-only CPR (no “mouth to mouth” breathing). Press hard and press fast in the center of the chest about 100 times a minute, and keep going until help arrives.

saving care (on average under 50 minutes from ER door to lifesaving treatment). Asante Rogue Regional earned Platinum recognition for the treatment of heart attacks from the American College of Cardiology in 2013.

Why is it best to call 9-1-1?

When ambulance or rescue bring STEMI patients to Asante Rogue Regional they have a remarkably low mortality of 1.8 percent; well below the overall average of 4.2 percent, which is still below the national average.

In 2003, local cardiologist Brian Gross, MD, led the charge to form a task force for the rapid treatment of severe heart attacks called STEMIs (Acute ST-Segment Elevation). This brought together five local hospitals and eight emergency ambulance services to create the STEMI program. This Asante-led program coordinates the simultaneous activation of paramedics, emergency departments, and the cardiac catheterization laboratory at Asante Rogue Regional Medical Center for rapid identification, triage, and treatment of all STEMI patients in nine counties of Southern Oregon and Northern California. Participating ambulance services use a 12lead EKG (electrocardiogram) machine in the field to identify heart attack patients before they arrive at the hospital. This gives the heart team time to assemble and prepare so the patient goes directly to the cardiac catheterization lab where a cardiologist opens blocked arteries using a stent or balloon angioplasty. This program has greatly decreased the amount of time it takes for a person with an acute heart attack to receive life-

58

How important is it?

When the heart muscle is preserved lives are saved and the patient’s quality of life is maintained. This program has been successful in producing one of the lowest mortality rates in the country.

What Are the Symptoms? A heart attack results when one of the three main blood vessels, or arteries, is suddenly blocked. When an artery is blocked, the following symptoms can be mild or severe: • • • • •

Discomfort in the chest, neck, arms, back, or upper stomach Shortness of breath Nausea or indigestion Sweating Dizziness or weakness

If someone is having these symptoms, call 9-1-1. Article provided by: Asante Asante.org

Healthy Diet for Healthy Eyes Candice Burns was visiting a friend when she decided to share her grandson’s picture. While looking at the familiar picture of the mischievous four year old climbing a fence, she noticed something peculiar. Her grandson’s face was blurry and the wooden fence in the background appeared wavy. Candice was diagnosed with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and quickly learned that she was not alone. AMD is the most common cause of significant vision loss for people over 65 affecting more than 10 million Americans. Fortunately for Candice, treatment improved her vision and may prevent future vision loss. Due to advancements in the last decade, Retina Specialists have delayed the progression of AMD, previously a devastating disease for many patients. Two preventable risk factors for developing the disease are smoking and high blood pressure. Smokers have at least twice the risk of developing AMD. Candice discovered that she played a role in her treatment by taking vitamin and mineral supplements. The specific daily amounts used to treat AMD are 500 mg of vitamin C; 400 IU of vitamin E; 25,000 IU of vitamin A; 80 mg of zinc; and 2 mg of copper. Copper was added to prevent copper deficiency anemia from the high zinc intake. She also complemented these vitamins by eating a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and omega-3 fatty acids. These foods are also high in antioxidants such as cartenoids and beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin. Antioxidants offer protection from freeradicals which are cell waste products that cause cell damage. Taking liquid

or capsules of cod liver oil is a simple addition of omega-3 antioxidant to any diet. Other sources of omega-3 are wild fish, walnuts, and flax seeds. Examples of foods that are good eye healthy choices: • Vitamin C: Oranges, grapefruit, melon, broccoli • Vitamin E: Whole grains, olive oil, almonds, avocados, blueberries, spinach and beans • Zinc: Oysters, meat, flounder, sole, sardines, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, beans, dairy products, and sesame seeds. • Caretenoids: Grapes, oranges, apples, apricots, peaches, nectarines, cantaloupe, kale, collard greens, spinach, broccoli, carrots. Simple changes can be helpful. For example, at breakfast, add blueberries to cereal, and kale to omelets. At lunch or dinner, use whole grain breads and top sandwiches with sprouts and greens. Lightly cook or steam vegetables, ensuring they retain their vitamins. When dining out, ask for grilled meats and lightly cooked vegetables. Consider trying the vegetarian options, a great source of eyehealthy vitamins. Simple additions to a healthy diet will do wonders in prevention, treatment, and your well-being.

Skilled Nursing Facilities provide a much needed service to our communities. Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy are all extremely useful for anyone who has experienced an accident or has had elective surgery and requires rehabilitative services to get back to their previous activities. Skilled Nursing Facilities also provide nursing services such as wound care, pain management, diabetic management and other vital services that patients may not be able to manage at home, even with caregivers and home health. Medicare is the insurance that many patients use to pay for all of these vital services. To qualify for a Medicare stay in a Skilled Nursing Facility, the client must have required a 3-day inpatient stay within an acute care hospital (spent 3 midnights at the hospital). At that time, if the client has a ‘skilled need’, Medicare can be utilized for inpatient services at a Skilled Nursing Facility. Skilled services can be any of the following – therapy services (including Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy), patient/caregiver teaching, IV Therapy, wound care and other possible services not mentioned. Currently Medicare pays 100% of a patients first 20 days within a Skilled Nursing Center as long as this benefit has not been used for the last 60 days. Starting on day 21, patients will have a 20% co-payment. Many times a

secondary insurance can be billed for the co-pay and no additional fees will be incurred for the patient’s stay. Medicare insurance can be used in a Skilled Nursing Facility for up to 100 days, as long as they require skilled care – therapy services, nursing services, patient training, etc.

Housing Definitions: Adult Day Care Programs offer a protective setting during the day, for those who cannot be left alone due to health care and social needs. The structured program within a community setting offers: socialization, planned activities, care services, companionship and meals. Adult Day Care provides daytime respite for the caregiver who typically works, needs time for other responsibilities, or simply to take a break. Some programs are designed for older adults with dementia and/or physical limitations. Programs through senior housing communities that are listed in this guide must be able to accept non-residents to be included. Adult Care Homes or Family Care Homes are private residences that provide a home-like setting, and serve 5 or less residents. The caregiver may perform several functions, such as personal care, housekeeping and activities and group meals. There are three levels of Adult Foster Care Home licenses. The classification system is based on the level of care the Adult Foster Home may provide to residents who live in the home as well as the experience and training of the providers and their ability to assist residents with: personal hygiene, mobility, eating, dressing, toileting, and behavior management. Residents may require very light assistance or may be dependent with several care needs; it is best to ask individual locations for their specific policies and license. Assisted Living Facilities (ALF) are State-regulated rental properties where six or more residents may reside. Care assistance is available, including: medication management, bathing, dressing, toileting and eating. Apartments must be fully selfcontained private living units with a lockable door, private bathroom, and kitchenette facilities. The fee schedule is regular monthly rent along with additional fees for specific services and amenities. Assisted living communities are best suited for individuals who want to remain as independent as possible and who are able to direct their own care. CCRCs (Continuing Care Retirement Communities) are communities that include a continuum of care with independent living, assisted living, residential care and skilled nursing services all on one campus, allowing individuals to live within the same community as their needs progress through the spectrum of care. They typically offer the full selection of amenities associated with retirement living. An endowment fee in addition to a monthly maintenance fee can be expected. Independent Living Communities (IL) provide residents with an independent living setting without the burden of home ownership. Typically, residency is established on a monthly rental basis. Residents live in fully equipped private apartments or cottages from studios to large two-bedroom units that may be rental-assisted or market-rate depending on the community. Amenities and hospitality services such as housekeeping, linen service, transportation and social and recreational activities may be included, provided for an additional charge, or may not be available at all. These communities do not provide assistance with activities of daily living or personal care.

Intermediate Care Facilities (ICF) are nursing facilities that are most appropriate for people who need 24 hour medical oversight in a structured setting. Most residents must share their room, but residents are allowed to bring personal items to encourage a more home-like atmosphere. Additionally, nursing facilities offer residents planned social, recreational and spiritual activities. Memory Care or Dementia Communities offer or provide care for residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia in a home-like environment. These communities must receive an endorsement and are governed by additional regulations that are specifically intended to support individuals with dementia, including: a secure building that alerts staff if a resident has exited, a secure outdoor area that provides outdoor freedom safely, interior finishes that are non-glare and well lit, and visual contrasts between floors, walls and doorways. Alzheimer’s units must also have programs, which include: gross motor, self care, social, craft, sensory enhancement and outdoor activities. Rehabilitation & Therapy is treatment for an injury, illness, or pain with the goal of restoring function, including nursing and therapy services. Rehab is ordered by a physician and services are provided by nurses and physical, occupational, and speech therapists. Examples include working with a physical therapist to help you walk and with an occupational therapist to help you get dressed. Residential Care Facilities (RCF) provide housing and supportive services for six or more people who do not require 24 hour nursing care. Pricing can vary greatly depending on the level of care provided and the size and amenities of each apartment. Accommodations are typically in a home-like setting and may range from a shared bedroom with common bathroom, to private apartments with kitchenette and private bathroom. Monthly fees vary greatly based on unit amenities and care services. Many residential care facilities specialize in caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Respite Care is short term relief for family caregivers to take a break from the caregiving responsibilities and allows for a healthier and better quality of life for both the caregiver and care receiver. Respite services include: companionship, personal care, recreational activities and security. Respite care can be provided as short stay or for a longer period that allows the family caregiver to go on vacation or a business trip. Longer duration respite care is generally found at select senior housing communities although some Companion services may provide this service in the home. Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) is a State-licensed facility that provides a safe, therapeutic environment for individuals who require rehabilitative care. Skilled Nursing Facilities offer 24 hour skilled nursing care and medical services by licensed nurses and support professionals. This is the highest level of care that can be provided that is not a hospitalization. Additionally, nursing facilities offer residents planned social, recreational and spiritual activities.

Life Enrichment Programs: An Important Part of Your Retirement Author Julia H. Gulliver once said, “Let us never be betrayed into saying we have finished our education because that would mean we had stopped growing.” These are profound words that have great meaning. Regardless of age, the opportunity to learn new things, to broaden ones horizons is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.

they challenging their residents to be involved, to live their life fully? In today’s retirement communities, the goal should be to redefine the “old school” identity of retirement living. Do not be satisfied with a community that just “thinks outside the box”, seek a community that throws the box away!

We consistently hear about the ‘checklist’ of items you should ask about when researching a retirement community. However, nowhere on these lists are lifestyle or life enrichment programming.

There is more to retirement living than bingo and scenic rides. Too much of what is available to Seniors today focuses on a perceived notion of what you “can’t do”. Although unintentional, the reality shows this to be true. The community you select should challenge those who live there to be engaged in their life, to be adventurous, and to rethink what retirement living can be.

In retirement, engaging our minds and challenging our intellect supports a more vital presence and…simply put…it’s just plain fun. You’ve always wanted to learn more about that song that should have been written, you know exactly what it should have been. You have strong opinions about Democracy and yearn for more knowledge about this uniquely American form of government. That special author that paints a picture with words, you want to learn about the journey that brought the story to life. Now is your time. Whether you are seeking Independent Living, Assisted Living, or even a Memory Care setting, search for a community that fully embraces this concept. Are their life enrichment programs truly innovative or do they feel stale, predictable, and dated? Do they bring unique speakers from around the area to you, giving you direct access to interesting takes on a variety of topics ranging from the serious to the laughout-loud stories of a humorist? Are

90

Every day we learn new ways that we can enhance how we age, ways to minimize the impacts of aging on the body, and how we can decrease the risks of cognitive impairment by exercising our brains. When something as simple as this can contribute so much to a healthier retirement the choice is simple. I am often asked if retirement living can really be different. My answer? Yes, it can be different. Expect more from a retirement community’s life enrichment programming. You're worth it! Article provided by: Frontier Management 541-582-7875 www.FrontierMgmt.com

Assisted Living Resources Licensing requirements for assisted living facilities vary by state and can be known by as many as 26 different names including: residential care, board and care, congregate care, and personal care. A complete list of each state’s terminology and state regulations can be found at: http://aspe.hhs.gov/daltcp/ Reports/04alcom.htm

Choosing A Community A good match between a community and a resident’s needs depends as much on the philosophy and services as it does on the quality of care. The following suggestions can help you get started in your search for a safe and appropriate assisted living community:

• What are your future needs and how will the community meet those needs?

Is the community close to family and friends? Are there any shopping centers or other businesses nearby (within walking distance)?

• Visit each community more than once, sometimes unannounced.

• Visit at meal times, sample the food, and observe the quality.

• Observe interactions among residents and staff and ask questions.

• Ask about social, recreational, and spiritual activities.

• Ask about the type and frequency of staff trainings.

100

• Review state licensing reports.

These steps should also be considered:

• Contact your state’s long-term care ombudsman to see if any complaints have been filed against the assisted living community you are interested in. In many states, the ombudsman checks on conditions at assisted living units and nursing homes.

• If the assisted living community is connected to a nursing home, ask for information about it, too. (Information on nursing homes can be found on the Medicare website at http://www. medicare.gov/nhcompare/home.asp). It is a good idea to review The Substantiated Facility Abuse Complaints at https://apps.dhs.state.or.us/cf2/spd/ facility_complaints/ This website contains Facility Adult Protective Services (APS) investigations that constitute abuse as determined by Corrective Action Coordinators.
