I’m almost 65 — how should I prepare for Medicare? Provided by SHIIP, NC Dept. of Insurance

More than 120,000 Nor th Carolinians will tur n 65 this year. Turning 65 is a lot like tur ning 16. When you tur ned 16, you didn’t automatically get your driver’s license; instead, you had to take an exam and prove that you were a safe driver. There was a specific order and procedure for getting your driver’s license, and the same is true for enrolling in Medicare for the first time when you turn 65. Much like you anticipated tur ning 16

and geting your driver’s license, you must anticipate and plan for becoming a Medicare beneficiar y. Don’t wait until you’re 65 to star t thinking about your Medicare choices. Start now and let SHIIP, the Seniors’ Health Insurance Information Program, help you. S H I I P, a d i v i s i o n of the Nor th Carolina Depar tment of Insurance, provides free, unbiased infor mation about Medicare and other insurance-related issues. There are SHIIP sites in all 100 counties in Nor th Carolina.

It is recommended that you review your Medicare options before you need to enroll so that you don’t make any hurried decisions at the last minute. Your Medicare choices will depend on several factors, including: 1. Are you retired, or will you or your spouse continue to work? 2. W ill you have access to medical and/ or pr escription dr ug coverage through an Employer Group Health Plan? 3. How does your Employer Group Health Plan compare with

Resources are valuable to everyone Debbie Davidson

Director, Lee County Senior Services

As the boomer, older adult and caregiver populations continue to grow in Lee County, and funding for programs and services that assist this population decrease, we are pleased to offer the 11th Annual Boomer, Senior and Caregiver Expo on August 28, 2013. More than 100+ exhibits, health screenings, seminars, and demonstrations will be offered to include something for everyone in attendance. I have personally been touched as a long distance caregiver of my aging parents and a special aunt. Resources from the Expo are valuable to all, who at some point in their life will be faced with lives, changing family situations and need guidance to make the best choices. Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, vendors and volunteers who make this event possible. Sincere appreciation to organizer Judi Womack, the dedicated staff of the Enrichment Center and Expo planning committee for your role in making the Expo a premier event for Lee County.

The Enrichment Center thrives on giving its best to citizens By Debbie Williams

Senior Center Program Director

As we celebrate “Living Well” at our 11th annual Boomer Senior & Caregiver Expo, I hope that everyone will join us in this wonderful opportunity that is provided for all adults. In a time where businesses are struggling, budget cuts are happening and people are facing unemployment, the need for helping ourselves, family and friends does not change. We all need help through resources when it comes to decisions concerning our families and our health. The Expo provides the opportunity to meet with vendors who will have just what

you need. You will not get this anywhere else! More than 100 vendors under one roof with contact information, health screenings, educational seminars to attend with valuable information, and all of this is FREE! We don’t realize how fortunate we are, even in times of trouble, to have such a great community that will come together to help one another. The Expo is just one example of how The Enrichment Center thrives on giving its best to the citizens of Lee County. Our friendships and collaborations with numerous agencies are astounding and very much appreciated. These collaborations make it possible to provide great information not

only at the Expo but in many of our programs at the center. The expertise and information is invaluable to those receiving it. At The Enrichment Center, I see the difference we make in peoples’ lives. More than 70 participants come for a noon time meal at the center Monday through Friday. We call it the Diners Club; it’s a daily celebration! For many, it is the only outing of their day. It’s not just about the food. The programs and fellowship help them with depression; they are able to socialize, exercise and learn. It keeps them independent; it keeps them alive! The Enrichment Center Home Delivered Meal Program serves about 30 home deliv-

ered meals Monday through Friday. Volunteers deliver the routes and it takes about an hour. Without these meals someone would be hungry and lonely. We are going to be on the receiving end one day and I hope these services and The Enrichment Center are still around. I am learning everyday about “Living Well” and how much information that I need to know. I am so grateful for those who are willing to share their time and knowledge with The Enrichment Center and residents of Lee County. Join us on Wednesday, August 28, 10am-2:30pm at the Dennis A. Wicker Civic Center and begin, or continue, your adventure on “Living Well”!

Exercise the most vital Why you need 50 and above now muscle: your brain eligible for games BY Kathy McLeodEdwards

Fitness Instructor, The Enrichment Center

Most people don’t think of their brain as a muscle, but according to Arthur Kramer, Ph.D., of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, physical exercise is one of the best gifts you can give your brain. A few years ago Kramer encouraged a group of older adults to start a relatively moderate exercise program, in which they walked three days a week for 45 minutes. The walkers showed substantial improvements on cognitive tests at the end of the year-long study. What’s more important, brain scans displayed a two percent increase in hippocampus size. Since the hippocampus usually shrinks about half a percent a year after age 50, his subjects weren’t just slowing the march of time, but reversing it. The Enrichment Cen-

ter of Lee County offers many forms of exercise to improve your mind and body. If working out by yourself is to your liking, use the fitness room after going through an orientation for only a $1 a visit. Group exercise classes offer a fun and social way to fitness and are free or reasonably priced. Classes are instructed in low impact aerobics, stretch and tone, yoga, tai chi and water aerobics. Classes are available in the mornings and evenings for your convenience. The Enrichment Center of Lee County also offers a quarter mile fitness trail where you can walk to improve body and brain. For more information on classes, times or to sign up for an orientation for the fitness room, call the Enrichment Center at (919) 776-0501, ext. 2201 or email kmedwards@

to stay active as you age

By Dianne Foushee

Carolina Women’s Fitness Center

There isn’t a fountain of youth, but exercise comes close. It will improve your chances of living a healthy life well into old age. Research shows that exercise can help prevent heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, ease digestive problems, arthritis pain, stif fness, raise “good” HDl cholesterol, strengthen bones and muscles, improve balance, boost energy, improve mental health, ease stress, fight depression and shed body fat.

What’s good for the heart is also good for the skin. Exercise gets oxygen rich blood flowing for a healthy glow. Get active for at least 30 minutes a day, five days a week. Incorporate flexibility, stretching, aerobic, and strength training into your workout. Laugh ever y day! Laughter is inner jogging. This is great especially for anyone unable to do other physical activity. It’s also important to remember that healthy eating, plenty of water,and quality sleep are necessities for wellness at any age.

Family Caregiver Program By Judi Womack Caregiver Specialist

Caregiving involves many challenges. You often need to develop new ways of relating to a family member if his or her ability to communicate or remember is compromised by illness. You may have to make tough decisions. But often one of the greatest challenges is taking care of yourself. Trying to do it all, and doing it all alone, are issues that caregivers frequently experience. The Family Caregiver Program at The Enrichment Center wants you as a caregiver to thrive and not just survive. Here is a list the program can offer the family caregiver. • Every Tuesday, you can bring your loved one to The Enrichment Center from 1 - 3 p.m. while you run your errands. • The Family Caregiver Program can offer you a break by sending a qualified person to your home at no cost to you. Even a short break from the daily demands of caregiving can help preserve a caregiver’s physical and emotional health. • Powerful Tools for Caregivers and the National Family Caregiver Class is offered during the year. These

classes are designed for the family caregiver to help reduce personal stress, set limits and ask for help, and deal with emotions such as anger, guilt and depression. The classes can’t take away caregiving problems, but they can help you better manage them, as well as seek and find solutions. • Alzheimer’s Education Conference and Dementia Workshops offered annually. • Caregiver Support groups offer family caregivers an opportunity to talk and share with others who have similar experiences and problems. • Our family caregiver program also offers grandparents/relatives who are raising grandchildren a support group and outings in the spring and winter that include the children. • Locating community services and resources is vital. So many caregivers do not know where to begin in their caregiving journey. The Family Caregiver Program will assist you in community services and resources. Please feel free to call Judi at (919) 776-0501, Ext. 2230 or email for more information.
