moving & Downsizing This category is full of resources to assist those who wish to move and/or downsize. It contains information on Move Managers, Organizers, Moving Companies, Realtors (who specialize in working with older adults), and Storage Facilities—as well as organizations who appreciate donations of items (in good shape) you no longer need. Health & Fitness This section lists possible solutions to health problems and concerns seniors face such as hearing and vision loss. Fitness also comprises this section and may be anything from yoga and exercise classes to massage therapy. Legal & Financial This category addresses legal and money topics, with the subcategories: Daily Money Management, Reverse Mortgages, Elder Law Attorneys, and Financial Planners. Transportation & Technology This is all about getting to where you want to be, physically and digitally. Transportation services concern getting you to appointments and other places and Technology involves assistance with computers and other equipment. resources While we’re not attempting to be an answer/referral line, you will find some useful contact information in this section including phone numbers for Legal Aid, county help lines, Meals on Wheels, the Senior Linkage Line, United Way, and more.

We are also putting articles on our website from past and present. We have years of archived articles and you will now be able to read them on our website along with Roland Minda’s blog, The Retirement Dance. We have a few other things that will be happening on our website, but we’re saving those surprises for later in the year! And we’re not done fine-tuning our site. There are more improvements ahead, but most of the work has been completed and the basic mechanism is “good to go.” We’ve put a lot of effort into this project – but keep in mind, it is a work in progress! Over the next few months, we will be adding lots more visuals and information. Any suggestions you have to help make this site the best it can possibly be, are certainly welcome! We encourage you to contact us with your ideas at: 651-690-3141, or email us at: contact@seniorhousingguide.us Many thanks to Drew from DesignZoo for his creativity and patience in making our new site happen...for you and/or someone you love!

Staying Put • Community Based Resources • Reverse Mortgages • Home Health Care • Adult Day Services • Hospice Almost 80% of people 65 or older state that their preference is to remain in their single family homes. If this is your decision, be realistic and acknowledge that in order to remain in your home you may need to do things differently than the way you have done them in the past. Consider having other people do chores that may have become difficult and are somewhat dangerous, such as cleaning gutters. The article “Staying in Your Home – Programs and Services to Help You Remain in Your Home” lists ideas and resources that can help with chores and make it easier for you to remain in your home. Think of it this way, did you ever enjoy cleaning gutters?

Look at your residence with a critical eye. It may need some modifications for age-related changes. Consider having an accessible bathroom put on the first floor, bring up the washer and dryer from the basement, eliminate throw rugs and improve the lighting. For more information, read the online article “Staying in Your Home–Making Your Home Supportive for Aging.” Need more money to accomplish these tasks? Consider a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (or “Reverse Mortgage”). Read more about Reverse Mortgages in this section or call Reverse Mortgage Counselors, Inc. at 651-368-8516 or toll free 1-888-690-7829 (STAY).

Is

a

Reverse Mortgage Right For You??

Article and counselor fluent in Spanish available – 651-917-0224. Artículo disponible en español. Consejera disponible en español – 651-917-0224.

• Are you 62 or older? • Do you own your home (or are you close)? • Do you live there the majority of the year? • Do you plan to live there for many more years? • Do you need money to modify your home to make it more supportive for age-related changes or to meet rising medical costs or other needs? If so, you might want to learn more about “reverse mortgages.” This form of financing enables many seniors to remain in their homes. Reading this article will help you determine if a reverse mortgage might be an option for you. If it is, you may want to do more research and/or you may want to see someone who can explain a reverse mortgage in detail. Reverse Mortgage Counselors, Inc. is a neutral, non-profit HUD-approved organization that educates people about reverse mortgages; you can reach them at 651-368-8516 or toll free 1-888-690-7829 (STAY). If you’re like many Americans, your home is probably your biggest financial asset. In the past, the only way you could “cash in” on that investment was to sell your home or borrow against it. With a reverse mortgage, however, you can take advantage of the equity you have in your home without having to move and without making monthly loan repayments. As a matter of fact, you don’t have to pay back a reverse mortgage for as long as you live in your home.

What is a “Reverse Mortgage?”

A reverse mortgage is a loan against your home’s equity. The loan provides cash advances to the borrower and requires no repayment until the last borrower sells or moves out permanently. There are several types of reverse mortgages, but the one that is the most widely used is the federally insured Home Equity Conversion Mortgage, HECM.

Who can qualify?

Homeowners who are 62 or older; even those with a poor credit rating can qualify.

What are the costs?

Most costs can be rolled into the loan. • Normal closing costs.

• Adjustable interest rate. • FHA mortgage insurance premium. • Small monthly servicing fee.

How much can I get?

Your age, your spouse’s age, (in couples it is based on the youngest person’s age) your home’s equity and the expected interest rate determine how much you can receive. The older you are the more money you can access.

Who determines the value of my house?

An FHA appraiser determines the value of your house.

How is a “Reverse Mortgage” different from a “Home Equity Loan?”

With a home equity loan the borrower must start to repay the loan immediately. With a reverse mortgage no payment is due until the owner leaves the home, sells the home, or transfers the title.

What types of property qualify? • Single family homes, PUDs (Planned Unit Developments). • Duplexes, triplexes, fourplexes. • Farm houses. • Most condominiums. • Some manufactured homes.

What if I still owe on my house? You can still get a reverse mortgage if there is enough equity to pay off the existing mortgage.

Is A Reverse Mortgage Right For You??

What if my house needs repair?

When is the loan repaid?

What if I decide to sell my house?

What if I am currently receiving public benefits?

Funds from the reverse mortgage can be withheld to make the repairs.

You can sell your home at any time. The loan is then repaid and you keep the remainder of the equity.

Does the lender get the house?

No, you (and your heirs) remain the owner of the house. When you are done with the house, you or your heirs can sell the house. The loan is repaid and the remainder of the money is yours or your heirs. If your heirs want to keep the house, they would need to get a regular mortgage and pay off the loan.

How can I withdraw my money?

You can select from several withdrawal plans and you can change the plan during the course of the loan. • A line of credit to use as you wish. • Monthly payment until you leave the home or for a specified amount of time. • A combination of a line of credit and monthly payout. • A lump sum.

Who pays the taxes and insurance?

In most cases you pay taxes and insurance.

Will this affect my taxes?

No, it is a loan and the money is not taxed.

Are there any restrictions on how I spend my money?

There are no restrictions on how you spend your money. Some uses are: prescription drugs, pay back taxes, home improvement, pay off the house, making ends meet, take a vacation, purchase a car, or buy a vacation home.

Would I ever owe more than the house is worth? The loan is a non-recourse loan and you are only responsible for what the house sells for. Any loan amount greater than the sales price of the home does not have to be paid by your or your heirs.

22

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

The loan is repaid when the last homeowner leaves the house, sells the house or transfers the title of the house.

If you are receiving public benefits that are income based, such as energy assistance, you may still be eligible for a reverse mortgage.

Why do I need to see a RM counselor?

For consumer protection it is required that anyone getting a Reverse Mortgage see an approved counselor. In Minnesota it is a law that you have this counseling prior to receiving any reverse mortgage. If your house is in Minnesota, the counselor must be from a HUD approved counseling agency located in Minnesota. During the session the counselor will go over the reverse mortgage step by step, suggest other programs that can help you stay in your home, and explain the process in general. You will learn about reverse mortgages, so you can make the best decision for yourself. The length of the session depends on your knowledge of the product. Attending the counseling session does not mean that you are getting a reverse mortgage; it simply means you are interested in learning more about the product.

Using

a

Reverse Mortgage

Starting in 2009 persons aged 62 and older could use a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) to purchase a home. The HECM is FHA’s reverse mortgage product and is insured by the federal government. The purchase-to-own HECM can benefit the potential owner because there is only one set of closing costs to pay. Previously, a homeowner would purchase the house, pay the closing costs, and then get a reverse mortgage, which triggered a second closing and additional closing costs. The rules for using a HECM to purchase a residence are pretty much the same as using a HECM in an already owned property.

What types of residences are eligible through the purchaseto-own HECM?

Types of residences that qualify are single family homes, one-to-four unit residential buildings, and most condominiums and townhomes. Cooperatives are not yet eligible in Minnesota, but may be in the near future. Some manufactured homes qualify if they were built after 1976 and have a permanent foundation. Newly constructed properties must have a certificate of occupancy, the borrower must occupy the property within 60 days of closing, and it must be the principal residence.

What is the Investment?

Your investment in the new home is the difference between the net principal limit and the sales price for the property. The net principal limit is determined by

to

Purchase

a

Home

the youngest borrower’s age, the interest rate and the appraised value of the property OR lending limit, less the loan and closing fees. If the borrower can bring a larger investment to closing, this permits a credit line to be established which can be used for future draws.

What are Allowable Funding Sources?

The borrower may only use their own money or money obtained from the sale of their personal assets, such as a home. Proceeds from the borrower’s savings or retirement account are also acceptable, but no additional loans may be used for the owner’s investment portion.

Confused?

If you are confused, read the article “Is a Reverse Mortgage Right for You?” then call Reverse Mortgage Counselors, Incorporated (RMCI) at 651-368-8516 or 1-888-690-7829 to set up a counseling, educational session. Counseling is required by law for anyone getting a reverse mortgage. RMCI will go over all the details and numbers with you in a one-on-one counseling session to make sure you understand this loan product and address any questions or concerns you have. Like anything, a reverse mortgage can be a great financial tool for some people and the wrong tool for others. RMCI counselors can help you see the pros and cons. RMCI is a HUD approved counseling agency.

Home Health Care & Adult Day Centers & Services Home Care encompasses a wide variety of services to people in their homes ranging from homemaking tasks, help with activities of daily living (tasks we do everyday cooking, cleaning, dressing, shopping, preparing meals, bathing, etc.), to companion care and skilled nursing care. Depending on the type(s) of care they provide, agencies must be registered and/or licensed. Agencies vary in size and services they provide, and may be specialized and provide one type of care or offer a full array of services. Home Care is appropriate when a person wishes to remain in his/her home and needs ongoing assistance, is recuperating from an illness or surgery, or as an alternative to long term institutional care. Home Care services can be paid in a variety of ways: privately, insurance, Medicare, Medical Assistance, Veteran’s Administration and Waivered Programs.

A Frequently Asked Question – Employing Mom’s Neighbor

My mother needs some help at home and her neighbor is available and wants to earn some extra money. She will do it for less money than a home care agency. Why shouldn’t I employ her? The answer to this is the word “employ”. You become the “employer” which makes you responsible if she injures herself while taking care of your mother. Also what happens if the neighbor is ill or out of town? Other questions you want to ask when using a home health care agency: does the agency do criminal background and driving record checks, how long has the agency been in business, and are they licensed by the state. For a list of questions visit the website of the Mn Home Care Association, www.mnhomecare.org.

Adult Day Centers and Services Starting on page 28 Adult day centers provide care and services to people during the day. The care provided at the center is not on a 24-hour basis. Centers provide a variety of services such as health monitoring, rehabilitation, assistance with medications, etc. The list of adult day care centers, starting on page 28, is comprehensive for the 11-county metro area. An excellent source of information is the Minnesota Adult Day Services Association, 763-464-2698 or www.madsa.org.

The left column gives the name of the Hospice provider and the right column lists payment options. Some Hospice providers care for people where they live while others require a move to the residence that provides the care, (Hospice Residences). Hospice providers who care for people where they reside will provide care wherever the person resides, which may be a single family detached home, a nursing home, an apartment, an assisted living residence and so on. For more information call Hospice Minnesota, 651-659-0423.


Moving On

Why Am I Considering A Housing Change? As you age your needs change. The starter house that you bought when you were first married may have been traded in a few years later for a larger one as children arrived. And now the house that you raised your children in may seem too large. The family room that you added seems empty and there is no longer a need for four bedrooms. The upkeep is time-consuming, it is expensive to run, the basement location of the washer and dryer is difficult and you worry about the house when you travel. It may just no longer be the house for you.

Deciding

to

Is it time for you or one of your loved ones to move, in order to have a more rewarding or less worrisome life? This quick quiz can help you decide.

If

you answer “Yes” to five or more statements, you should:

– consider looking for housing that better fits your needs, or

– start exploring ways to modify your house or your activities and responsibilities to make your daily life more satisfying and secure.* * See “Is a Reverse Mortgage Right for You?” for tips on a source of financial assistance.

For all of these reasons – and more – we face decisions about our housing needs. These decisions are never easy and require consideration. Read this section on moving and assess your housing needs and wants. Ask yourself, “Why am I considering a housing change?” Even if you are not ready to make a move – know your housing options so later on if you do need to make a change, you can make an informed decision that is best for you.

Move...15 Factors 1. Stairs and other structural features make it difficult for me or my spouse to move around in the house, and I worry about falls. 2. My neighborhood doesn’t feel as safe as it used to feel. 3. The property values in my neighborhood have gone up so much that I worry about being able to pay my taxes. 4. I can’t maintain my house and my yard the way I would like to. 5. I have a hard time remembering to take all my medications. 6. If I couldn’t drive, I would not be able to get to the grocery store, to doctor’s appointments, to religious services, and important social events. 7. I sometimes forget to tend to daily tasks.

to

Consider

8. I’d like to travel, but I don’t, because I worry about my home. 9. My family and friends aren’t able to visit me or help me as much as they would like because we live too far apart. 10. I am not eating the way I should. 11. I worry a lot about the future. 12. I would like someone else to tend to housekeeping, cooking meals, and untangling things like monthly bills, health insurance, and other paperwork. 13. It is becoming a struggle to care for myself or my spouse in our current home. 14. Now that being near work and schools aren’t major considerations, I’d like to be closer to the people and places that play significant roles in my current life. 15. I would like to meet people I have things in common with.

Seven Steps

Well Begun Is Half Done Seven to nine

weeks before you plan to move: • Using a measured floor plan, determine which furniture you’ll take to your new home and where it will be placed. If you are downsizing think about using furniture that has a dual purpose, for example a coffee table that has storage capacity. • Ask movers for estimates (in writing). Ask about insurance and delivery time, as well as what items they can’t transport. • Moving yourself can be cheaper, but hiring a packing, moving company lightens the burdens considerably. Senior move firms like Rose’s Daughters, Senior Moves, or Twin Cities Senior Relocation Specialists can orchestrate the entire move or do part of it. They will even unpack and arrange your belongings the way you want, making sure lamps are plugged in, computers are hooked up and remote controls are programmed before they leave. Ask for a free consultation. • Identify items that can be sold, given away, or thrown out. • Open a bank account in your new locale. • Request copies of your medical records, one for you and one each to be sent to your new physician, eye doctor, and dentist. • Start using up things that can’t be moved; frozen foods and housekeeping supplies. 34

2.

to a

Saner Move

On Your Mark

Four to seven weeks before your move: • Notify the post office and friends, relatives, and businesses about your change of address. Notify magazines that you subscribe to of your change of address. • Contact phone, gas, electric, cable, internet providers, and newspapers and arrange for services to be terminated. • Arrange for similar services at your new place. • Pick up dry cleaning, items being repaired or stored, things lent to others, your locker at the gym or golf club. • Sell unneeded items at a garage sale or donate them to charities. Arrange for friends and family to pick up things that you will be giving them. Remember if you are moving into a place that has dining, you will want to downsize your kitchen. You may want to eliminate large baking dishes and extra sets of dishes and utensils, but keep your favorite cookbook.

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

3.

Getting Set

Four to three weeks before you leave: • Have your car serviced for the upcoming trip. • Take pets to the vet for needed shots; get inoculation records. • Get refills for your medications – and arrange for prescriptions to be transferred to your new pharmacy. • Return library books and other things that you have borrowed. • Host a party that allows you to visit with people you won’t be seeing for a while. If you feel that the party would create more work for you, you may want to host the party at a restaurant.

4.

The Countdown

Two weeks before the movers arrive: • Use quality supplies and get them in advance; packing tape, boxes, bubble wrap, etc. • Label your belongings with colored stickers indicating which room they will be moved into. • Start assembling your Survival Kit (see #6). • Consider which items should be loaded last and unloaded first (kitchen and dining items, sheets and towels that will be needed immediately). • Complete mail forwarding packet from post office prior to move.


5.

P & D Day

That’s Packing and Departure Day • Secure pets so they don’t get loose, get injured, or nip or scratch movers. • Mark boxes clearly, noting the rooms they should be moved into and their contents. • When furniture is disassembled, collect the hardware in plastic bags, label them, and make sure they are packed with the furniture or put into your Survival Kit. Write down or photograph how things should be reassembled and what tools are needed. • Check behind doors and in drawers, cabinets, and the rafters for overlooked items. • Your movers will probably inventory the boxes; if not, before they are loaded number them and label each one with your name and destination address.

6.

Surviving Until Your Things Arrive

If you are moving a distance and having your things moved by van, it can take days or weeks for a moving van to arrive. If you bring these items with you, you’ll have what you need until the rest of your belongings are delivered: • Essential items – Checkbook, credit/ATM cards, travelers checks, keys for luggage and vehicles, new housing, important papers (will, power of attorney, vehicle titles, proofs of insurance, prescriptions, AND mortgage or lease for new housing, moving agreement, inventory, contact information for building management and moving company), driving directions, area map, toiletries, prescription medications, vitamins, painkillers, old phone directories, alarm clock, flashlight, nightlight, extension cord, sleepwear, changes of clothing, coffee, coffee pot, tea bags, creamer, sweetener; pet food, bedding, cat litter, cell phone. • Really useful items – mediumsized pot, toaster, one place setting per person, can opener, cutting knife, salt, pepper, sugar, other seasonings; storage bags, dish soap, towels, toilet paper, facial tissue; hammer, nails, picture hangers, pliers, screwdrivers, measuring tape, duct tape; pens, paper, envelopes. • Wise to transport yourself – family pets, keepsake jewelry, address book, family medical and dental records, tax records (pack or mail copies); laptop

computer (make back up disks and pack or mail separately) • Buy when you arrive – Broom, dustpan, mop, toilet brush, cleanser, garbage bags, light bulbs, breakfast food, sandwich fixings, soups, stews, and other easy to cook food; milk, juices, and other perishables Continued on page 36

Help Your House Make a First Great Impression TIPS ON PREPARING YOUR HOME FOR SALE Once you’ve come to the conclusion that it’s time for a new home, there are a few things to think about before you try selling your current one. The first priority should be to find a good real estate agent you can trust. A trustworthy agent will help you to set a price that will meet your timeline and financial objectives, and help you to develop a plan for sprucing up your home so it makes the best possible first impression on potential buyers. Remember, the first impression is a lasting one while you may not want to go all out and “stage your house for sale,” there could be some minor things you can do so your house makes a great first impression.

De-Clutter!!!

This is the time to clean out closets and get rid of worn, outdated clothes. After you clean the closets, clean out the cupboards, garage and other storage areas. Donate items to charities, give them away, have a garage sale, or pack them into storage boxes and keep them out of sight. Stack the boxes neatly in the garage or consider renting a storage unit until the house is sold. Also pack up collections, hobbies, and other knick-

knacks that you can live without for the time being and store them. The point is to create the appearance of as much space as possible, while still looking homey and appealing. For more tips on how to de-clutter go to our website, www.seniorhousingguide.us and read the article “Back to Basics.”

Clean Everything

Dust everything with a damp rag or special dusting cloth. This includes furniture, light fixtures, bulbs, knick–knacks, picture frames, television screen, mirrors and all the woodwork. Clean windows make a room appear larger and brighter. Don’t forget the blinds or door frame tops and ceiling fans. The shine you reveal by doing this will pay large dividends.

Take Time for the Small Things

Now is the time make the small repairs you never seemed to have the time to fix. All the little things you managed to put up with are things that could potentially deter a buyer. Tighten loose knobs, touch up scratches in the woodwork, patch holes and cracks in the plaster, and replace torn window screens. Also repairing loose stair rails or carpeting on a stairway should be top priorities.

Continued from page 35

Lighten Your Load

• At your new place, make sure your utilities are connected and functioning, appliances are plugged in and turned on, and the thermostat is set at a comfortable level. Is your cable service hooked up? • Be present when your belongings are unloaded or have a representative there to accept delivery, check that all your boxes have been delivered and in good condition. • Make sure boxes are placed in the correct rooms and that their labels are all facing the same direction and can be clearly seen. • Set up the essential areas, the kitchen, the bathroom, the bedroom. Take the rest of your unpacking one box at a time, especially if you are physically or emotionally stressed. You don’t have to be organized in a day. Save some time and energy for exploring your new location and meeting your neighbors.

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us


Touch Up the Entry

Polish address numbers, doorknob and even the mailbox. Paint the door, trim the shrubs, plant fresh flowers, place a cut bouquet on the table, and buy a new welcome mat. There is no need to spend a lot of money doing this, but newer always looks better to potential buyers.

Concentrate on the Bathroom and Kitchen

Everybody uses both these rooms extensively and they are sure to get a detailed examination during a showing. While you may not need to rush out to replace your appliances with the popular stainless steel types there are many things you can do. Replace peeling wallpaper, fix leaky faucets, thoroughly clean the grout, and clean/replace the water pipe leading from the wall to the toilet. Apply fresh caulk around bathtubs, sinks, toilets and showers. A fresh new shower curtain can do wonders and spruce up a tired bathroom.

Clean the Carpets

No matter how much cleaning you do to the rest of the house, it will not show well if the carpet is soiled. Hiring a professional cleaner eliminates the work of doing it yourself and they can do a better job of removing spots and eliminating smoke or pet odors. Don’t forget to launder, store or throw out worn rugs.

Paint

Painting the inside of you home will improve it’s marketability and freshen it up. Tone down bold colors and and paint neutral ones; antique white or beige are colors that appeal to almost everyone and make rooms seem larger. Pratt and Lambert’s Ancestral #20-1 is a white that seems to work well anywhere. And remember flat paint looks best on walls that are not in perfect condition.

Dry the House Out

Repair leaky pipes, faucets and roofs. Fix moisture and mildew problems and water damage. If small problems are not taken care of now, they could become serious problems later, especially during the home inspection.

Don’t Forget the Outside

If the driveway is blacktop consider giving it a fresh coat of sealant for an updated look. Clean and replace old gtters as well as damaged or loose shingles. Use crack sealer or crack repair kits to improve the look of the foundation, retaining, walls, patios and walkways. De-cluttering the outside is also recommended. If you have a boat or an RV, find a place to store them away from you home to make the yard, garage and/or driveway appear larger.

About the Listings and Services

About the Housing Listings

• Ownership and Rentals • Market Rate and Subsidized Housing Options • • Independent and Assisted Living/Housing with Services •

When you read the housing listings, keep in mind properties change their rates at different times of the year. So the information that was current at printing may not be current a month later.

Keep in mind too, that this is meant only to be a GUIDE. We cannot include every detail, but have tried to give you enough information so you can narrow your search and start the elimination process.

About the Services

• Dining • Housekeeping • Laundry/Linen • • Personal Care • Van Transportation •

In independent living, you typically rent the apartment; your monthly rent is for the space you will occupy. In housing that contains services, the services are sometimes included in the rent or there is a “service package” that you can purchase. Sometimes there may be several “service packages” and you can find one that is most appropriate for you.

Remember to Ask Questions, Such as...

• How many meals per day are included? Are meals served 5 or 7 days a week? • How much housekeeping is included? And what does housekeeping include; dusting, floor mopping, cleaning the bathroom, etc. Does housekeeping mean once a month or once a week? • How much personal care is included? Can I purchase additional care if I need it and what will it cost?

Feel like you are moving the world? Lighten your load... 38

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

• Does laundry/linen mean all my laundry or 2 loads per week? Will they only do linens? • “Van transportation” in the listing means transportation to scheduled events. What if I need transportation to a doctor’s appointment? Will they help me arrange the transportation?

If you are thinking about making a housing change, do your homework and be an informed consumer. Ask questions, visit residences more than once, attend open houses, ask for literature and go online to view residences’ websites. If you are helping a loved one, try to involve them as much as possible. The more they are involved in the search, the happier they will be with their new home. Remember, the more questions you ask, the better informed you will be and the better housing choice you can make!!!

Continuing Care Retirement Communities Life Care Communities Continuing Care Retirement Communities CCRCs, and Life Care Communities both offer a continuum of care that allows residents to “age in place.� Campuses for these types of communities include separate housing for those who live independently, assisted living for those who need more support, and nursing home care for those who need skilled nursing care. Residents of CCRCs pay an endowment fee upon entering as do residents of a Life Care Community, but residents of CCRCs pay for services as they need them and Life Care residents pay a flat fee that remains the same as long as they live there. For both types of communities there is a second person fee for services.

Ownership CONDOMINIUMS • TOWNHOMES • COOPERATIVES

Condominium and Townhome Ownership

In condominium and townhome ownership residents hold the title to the unit in which they live, but common property such as halls, club house, parking garage, etc., is held jointly by all residents. A major difference between townhome and condominium ownership is that townhome residents own the land their unit occupies and condominium owners do not. Condominium residents own the land jointly. For both condominium and townhome owners, mortgages and taxes are the same as for any owned home, and fees are collected to cover the costs associated with the common areas. A reverse mortgage can be obtained on most condominiums and townhomes which can be useful if there is a substantial assessment. There is generally an elected Board of Directors that makes decisions for the group of owners.

Cooperative Housing

A corporation, composed of residents, owns and operates the property and residents purchase shares in the corporation in order to live there. Members sign an occupancy agreement in which they agree to pay a one-time membership fee as well as their portion of the mortgage and maintenance costs. “Limited equity” coops are those that allow the seller to realize only a certain amount of gain or profit when the unit is resold. Because the living space is not owned outright, there may be certain conditions in selling one’s membership and equity; these are explained at the time of purchase.

If you are thinking about a cooperative make sure you ask: • What is the share price? • Where can I obtain loan financing? • What does “limited equity” mean? • How much are the monthly carrying charges? • What is the underlying mortgage? • Are there resale restrictions?

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

Architectural Styles, Services and Amenities

Typically condominiums and cooperatives are much like an apartment, but they can vary in their architectural form. Townhomes or row houses usually have their own entrance and may be one or more stories tall with or without a basement. All three types may offer a few services, such as dining, but are usually designed for independent living. However, someone could arrange for services to be brought in. Because this type of housing appeals to active adults, many properties of this type have included amenities such as a clubhouse, pool and business center.

Questions for potential owners: • What is the subletting policy? • What is the pet policy? • Can I obtain a reverse mortgage on my property? • Can I make alterations to my unit? • Is the building managed by a professional management company or do residents take care of the building themselves? • What about long-range planning? • How much money do they have in reserves? • What kind of assessments have they had or are they planning? • How much have the maintenance dues gone up in the past few years? • Check out the dues: Do they seem low & what do they cover? • Can I have a copy of the bylaws?

Market Rate Rentals: Independent Living With 0 to 1-2 Services APARTMENTS • TOWNHOMES RENTALS WITH INCOME GUIDELINES • RENTALS WITH ENTRANCE FEES “Market rate” means a housing unit is paid for by rent, in the same way as any apartment. A lease is signed that states the monthly rent for a period of time and at the end of the lease the landlord can increase the rent. Apartment sizes can vary greatly. Studio and efficiencies are available to 1, 2, and 3+ bedroom apartments with one or more bathrooms. Complexes may offer several different versions of an apartment and costs can vary by adding a bathroom, sunroom, square footage, view, and etc. Costs can also be affected by the addition of services, such as housekeeping and meals. Typically, apartment complexes are low-rise or high-rise apartment buildings, but some units are available that are townhouses, where each unit has its own entrance.

Options

Rentals with Income Guidelines

Some developments may have all or a percentage of the units set aside for moderate-income residents as part of government financial help for the original development. These apartments are below market rate and renters pay a set amount for their monthly rent.

Rentals with Entrance Fees

In some types of residences, there may be an entrance fee. This fee helps bring down the monthly rental fee and is sometimes refundable or partially refundable.

Subsidized Rentals APARTMENTS • TOWNHOMES It can take time to qualify for and find housing that is affordable. But the result can be worth the effort. The options range from private and public housing that is designated for seniors to vouchers that you can use in a variety of locations. Rents in these facilites vary according to ability to pay, based on gross income, (before taxes or Medicare deductions), and assets. Assets include income from Social Security, wages, pensions, welfare, etc., and interest or dividends from IRAs, Certificates of Deposit, stocks, and bonds. With assets such as stocks and bonds, only the interest from the asset is counted as income. Assets such as cars and clothing are not counted.

Types of Subsidies

Subsidies for apartments vary, but the most common subsidy requires the renter pay 30% of their gross income for rent. Another subsidy has a rent range, meaning there are lower and upper limits to how much rent you are required to pay based on your income.

Privately Owned Subsidized Housing Privately owned subsidized housing has many different managers and landlords. Typically, buildings are three stories or less and located in the suburbs. You apply to the building of your choice and you can be on several waiting lists at once. Income eligibility varies from county to county. Contact your local Housing Redevelopment Authority (HRA) for income eligibility; phone numbers are listed in this section.

Public Housing

These apartments are publicly owned and operated by the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority and the St. Paul Public Housing Agency. Some buildings are

a mix of people, while others are designated for older adults. Usually the buildings are highrises located in the city near bus lines, clinics, and shops. Income guidelines are given at the end of this section.

Supportive Services

Services can be provided on-site and include help with housekeeping, laundry, and meals. Personal assistance with grooming, dressing, and bathing is also available. Payment for services is on a sliding-fee scale.

Amenities and Services

Amenities differ from building to building, but most buidings have community and laundry rooms and elevators. Some subsidized buildings also have services available. Wheelchair-accessible apartments are available.

Housing Choice Vouchers

Housing choice vouchers help low-income people pay for housing in the private market. Tenants must find their own apartments. They pay a portion of the rent and the government pays the remainder. Subsidies that are tenant-based stay with the person. Even if you move you can usually keep your subsidy. The process of getting a voucher can be lengthy; waiting time can be one to two years and once you obtain a voucher you still have to apply to a property in order to live there. Visit the Housing Link website, www.housinglink.org, to find landlords who wish to participate in this program. To apply for a voucher, call the Housing Redevelopment Authorities, phone numbers on the next page.

Assisted Living MARKET RATE RENTAL APARTMENTS WITH SUPPORTIVE SERVICES There are many terms that describe the combination of housing and services which can vary from state to state. In Minnesota, “Housing with Services” typically means that some or all of the following services are available to some extent: dining, housekeeping, laundry and personal care. “Assisted Living” residences have the same services, but in order to be considered “Assisted Living” the services have minimum requirements: 2 meals daily, daily check system, weekly housekeeping and laundry service, assistance with 3 or more of the activities of daily living (dressing, grooming, bathing, eating, transferring, continence care and toileting), and assistance in arranging transportation, and accessing community and social resources. Additionally health related services must include assistance with self-administration of medication or administration of medication, supervised by a Registered Nurse. Assisted Living residences must also have staff available who can respond 24/7 to requests for assistance with health or safety needs.* These types of residences range from cozy single family homes with a few, 5 to 10 residents; (see also the section on Residential Care Homes) to larger complexes that have 100 plus residents. They may be stand alone or part of a campus offering a continuum of care. Some costs are basic, but they also depend on the level of care and as a person’s needs change, so can the level of care. Services are paid by the resident, either separately or as a part of the rent. In some circumstances Alternative Care (AC) or Elderly Waivers (EW) may cover some or all of the costs. An excellent consumer checklist for assisted living can be found on the Assisted Living Federation of America’s website www.alfa.org. * Some settings that have 12 or fewer residents may qualify for an exemption permitting them to use staff who are allowed to sleep, but can be awakened in order to respond to health or safety needs.

Memory Care DEMENTIA & ALZHEIMER’S RESIDENCES A growing number of residences specialize in care for people with Alzheimer’s and related symptoms of dementia. Some are stand alone facilities that are “Dementia Only,” while others are a specialized unit in a nursing home or an assisted living facility. Another type of residence for people with memory care needs is Residential Care Homes. Read about them in the section, “Residential Care Homes.” Twenty-four hour supervision is required along with security systems to safeguard residents. Residents may have shared or private rooms or small apartments. Some costs are basic, but they also depend on the level of care a person needs. Residences may have specialized building features that help minimize confusion and agitation; secured wandering paths, color-coded hallways, visual cues. Professionally run communities provide ways to help build self-esteem, preserve dignity, nurture independence, and remind residents of a happy time and place. Often, repeated basic skills and familiar tasks or routines help stimulate the mind and keep residents from feeling isolated or confused. Of course nothing can compare to the attention of family and friends and many communities are extending visiting times and are providing private gathering places for people within the residence.

The Listings for Memory Care:

The listings on the following pages give the name of the residence, phone number and address. Enhanced listings also include the website (if available). Most websites offer photos and/or a virtual tour of the residence and the units.

Types of payments for services: private, P, Elderly Waiver, EW and Alternative Care, AC.

Residential Care Homes GENERAL CARE & MEMORY CARE Residential Care Homes offer the opportunity to receive the assistance you need in an intimate home setting – in a real house located in a residential neighborhood. They offer professional services with a high ratio of staff available to assist as needed. These services range from very basic assistance or reminders, to memory care and complex service needs. The small setting offers the opportunity for individualized care which caters to unique needs and preferences. Most operate with a philosophy of care that allows “aging in place,” with more intensive services available as care needs progress. These homes offer a “hands-on management” approach. Most have owners available on site. They are licensed in a variety of ways, all of which involve regulation and inspection by state, county and/or local agencies. The intimate, family feel of these homes make them an excellent choice for memory care, with natural comfort stemming from the home environment.
