Welcome

elcome to the 2017-18 Twin Cities Senior Housing Guide and our redesigned website. We’re doing our best to keep pace with technology (in this digital age) by providing accurate and useful information to make choices easier, so you can get the most out of life. Creating a “new and improved” TCSHG website has been no small feat. We knew what we wanted, but getting there was another matter entirely! Enter, Drew (our website guy). Drew created the first generation of our website and he has continued to work with us on updates and improvements. But, getting him on board to create a completely new look and vastly expanded functionality took a little persuasion. First, he had to learn all about housing for mature adults, then be flexible to make change after change after change! You’ll still find our website at www.seniorhousingguide.us but now it is sporting a very different look and is more user-friendly than ever before. Information is available on a variety of topics that concern older adults and to make it easy to comprehend we divided it into three sections or Directories: Housing, Home Care and Hospice, and Resources. Since space on the internet is without limits, we can now provide even more useful info about housing and resources by including maps, photos and even videos. www.seniorhousingguide.us is divided into three main Directories. These include:

I. SENIOR HOUSING

(the largest of course!) The Housing Directory is a comprehensive listing of all the housing for older adults in and around the Twin Cities Metro area. It’s divided into: Ownership (condominiums, cooperatives, and townhomes) and Rental (independent living, housing with services, assisted living, subsidized housing, memory care, residential care homes, and care suites). Consumers can easily search for housing by type of housing or by county or both.

8

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

Each housing community has a digital page, containing information about the residence(s) such as price, type of units, building and neighborhood amenities, pet policy, services available, parking, and so forth. With more space on the internet we can offer more information: a map to each residence helps consumers locate it, pictures give an idea of what the community looks like, and a written description tells consumers more about the community (even though a picture is worth a thousand words).

II. HOME CARE AND HOSPICE

The Home Care and Hospice Directory include the subcategories: Private Pay Home Healthcare Agencies, Medicare Certified Home Healthcare Agencies, Chore Services, Non-medical Home Care Agencies, and Hospice. While it’s impossible to include every conceivable home care option, the Hospice listings for the Twin Cities Metro area are comprehensive – just as they are in our printed Guide.

III. RESOURCES FOR SENIORS

While we are not trying to be a help or referral line we do include some information that consumers have asked us for over the years. The Resource Directory has items of interest to older adults and is divided into the following subcategories. Aging in Place People who wish to remain in their homes will find this section helpful. It has information on Home Repair, Remodeling for Accessibility, Care Managers, Reverse Mortgages, as well as Errand/Concierge Services (people who can “do the running” for you). This section also has Adult Day Care listings (comprehensive for the Twin Cities Metro area— just as they are in our printed Guide). Entertainment and Leisure This category includes items of interest that may be fun, recreational or relaxing.

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 & Travel This category is all about getting where you want to go! Whether you just need a ride to a doctor’s appointment across town or you want to drive to Florida, there are options available to you. Technology Technology involves assistance with computers and other equipment. If you need help setting up Facebook or your computer has a nasty virus, there is someone that can assist you. Helpful Contacts 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 have put articles on our website from past Housing Guides. Now you can read these articles along with Roland Minda’s blog, The Retirement Dance. We have a few other things that will be happening on our website, but those will happen later in the year. We are continuing to fine-tune the site, 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 year, we will be adding even 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”).

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 651-3688516 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.

20

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

• 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. Continued on page 153

Home Health Care Starting on page 24 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 25 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.

Hospice Care Starting on page 27 Hospice care is a package of services and programs provided to terminally ill persons and their caregivers. Hospices offer palliative care (services that do not cure illnesses, but produce the greatest degree of relief from the symptoms of a terminal illness) and supportive care. Services included are physical, psychological, spiritual and sociological care, and also bereavement—assistance to the family and caregivers after the death of the hospice patient. An interdisciplinary team of end-of-life specialists consisting of nurses, physicians, clergy/counselors, family caregivers and volunteers help provide care.

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. Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

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.

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.

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 28

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

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.

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.

Moving Checklist 10 – 12 Weeks to Moving Day

q After you have decided on your new home, ask the marketing director for a measured floor plan so you can determine which furniture you’ll be able to bring, and where it will be placed. q Create and maintain a file for all moving papers and receipts.

q Ask movers for estimates in writing. Make sure to inquire about insurance and what items they can/ cannot move. Many movers will not move alcohol – so worst-case scenario is you invite your friends and neighbors over to have a last drink in your old home. The moving company should provide a list of items they will not move.

8 Weeks to Moving Day Declutter (this may take longer depending on your level of clutter)

q Now is the time to give children and grandchildren things you want them to have. q Identify items to toss, give to charity, or sell at a garage sale or online. Color-coded stickers can be very useful. q Have a garage sale – if that is part of your plan.

q If you have a hard time giving something up, but you know it will not fit in your new home take a picture. q Start using up things that can’t be moved; frozen foods, housekeeping supplies, etc. q If you are moving into a place that has dining, downsize your kitchen, but keep your favorite cookbook.

6 Weeks to Moving Day

q If you’re moving far enough away that you will need new doctors, start researching now. Request copies of your medical records from dentist, physician, eye doctor. q Again if you are moving far enough away you will need a new bank so open an account, order checks. q Take pets to veterinarian for necessary shots and make arrangements for moving them. q Don’t forget a new veterinarian for your furry 30

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

friends, and get a copy of their records for the new veterinarian.

q Send change of address info (including date) to your: banks, attorneys, credit card companies, insurance agents, stockbrokers, social security, magazines and newspapers (for subscriptions). q Contact phone, gas, electric, cable, Internet providers.

q Pick up dry cleaning items, return library books and other things you have borrowed. q Get refills of medications, arrange for prescriptions to be transferred if needed. q Get your car serviced if you are driving a long distance.

q Get packing boxes, tape, and bubble wrap. Pack heavy items in small boxes, but otherwise use boxes that are all the same size (they are easier to move). Do not overstuff boxes. q Start assembling a survival kit for the first night, and breakfast the next morning in your new home.

2 Weeks to Moving Day

q Label boxes as you pack them and write which room they should be left in by the movers.

q When packing is done, count the boxes. Put a label on each box including your name, cell phone number and new address.

q Consider items that should be loaded first – and last. q Complete a mail-forwarding packet from post office.

q When furniture is disassembled collect hardware and store in plastic bags and label them. Write down or photograph how they look assembled. q Wise to transport yourself: pets, photo albums, jewelry, tax and medical records, passports, address book, laptop, ipad—make a backup of any computer files and pack backup files separately.

Moving Day

q Be home to answer questions and remain until movers are done, checking that they did not leave anything behind.


q Carefully read, complete and sign the bill of lading and the inventory sheet and keep until all your possessions are delivered, the charges are paid and any claims are settled. A bill of lading is a legal document between the shipper of goods and the carrier detailing the type, quantity and destination of the goods being carried. The bill of lading also serves as a receipt of shipment when the goods are delivered at the predetermined destination. q Make sure movers have your new address with directions and any instructions about moving into the building. Be sure to exchange cell phone numbers. q Record all meter readings upon departure.

q toothpaste, toothbrush q hair brush

q makeup, razor, toiletries

q prescription medications, vitamins, painkillers q a comfortable pair of shoes

q pens, paper, envelopes, stamps q cellphone and other chargers q a clean set of sheets

q tool kit (hammer, nails, screwdriver, measuring tape, duct tape) q dog/cat food and cat litter

Surviving Until Your Things Arrive Essential Items: q checkbook

Once You Are There…

q Be present when your belongings are unloaded and check that all your boxes are there and in good condition. q Make sure the boxes are placed in the correct rooms.

q Check out the utilities, see if thermostat is set at a comfortable temperature, if cable is hooked up, etc. q Set up so you can function in essential areas; bathroom, bedroom, kitchen. (Don’t worry about unpacking every box immediately. You can do it one box at a time. Relax and save some time and energy to explore your new home and meet your neighbors).

q Once you are somewhat situated take some time and buy some fun, “Our New Home” cards and send them to friends and relatives to let them know your new address, phone number and that you made it! Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

What Do All the Abbreviations in the Grids Mean? While trying to save space, but give you as much information as possible, we have used abbreviations, so if have a question, here is what they all mean in their “unabbreviated” form.

Featured on Page or Pg.

The residence has placed an ad in the Guide and this tells you what page it appears on. Check out the ad to learn more about the community, learn about their mission statement, what they have to offer, etc.

Age to Reside

This is the minimum age to live in a residence; most are 55+, a few are 62+.

Floors/Units

Number of floors and total units there are in a residence. If you were looking for a low rise, you would want to look for a building with 3-5 floors or less. If looking at the skyline delights you then a tall building might be for you! And of course if it says 1 floor that means it is 1 level!

Monthly Dues

Residents of condominiums, cooperatives and townhomes pay a monthly fee for upkeep of common areas: hall, parking lot, pool, laundry area, etc.

Realtor – For condominiums/ townhomes

If the word realtor appears instead of a phone number, you need to contact a realtor to assist you; the process of buying a condo or townhome is like buying a single family detached home.

Types of Spaces Available

Studio – Studios are typically one room with an area designated for sleeping and a living area usually with a kitchenette, (small/partial kitchen), plus a bathroom. 1, 2, 3 Bedroom Units/Units with Dens – 1, 2, and 3 bedroom units/apartments may have multiple bathrooms. A den is typically a room without a window, but fairly large, and can be used for a variety of purposes. These units typically have a full kitchen. Communities may have common area laundry facilities, and may even offer complimentary laundry or charge a small fee. Some residences offer in-unit laundry, meaning the washer/dryer is located in your unit and is usually provided by the residence. An in-unit laundry

34

Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

hook-up means you must provide your own washer/ dryer. Shared/Private Suites – A shared or companion suite, or a private suite is typically a large room with private bathroom and does not usually have a kitchen; all meals are provided.

Fee/Security Deposit/Lease

If a residence charges a fee, the fee may or may not be refundable or only a portion may be refundable. Security Deposit is for damage to the unit above normal wear-and-tear and is typically returned (if there is no damage) after the renter moves. A lease can be month-to-month (M-M), 6 months, or a year (YR). Make sure you understand the lease prior to signing it. Pets/Pet Deposit – If weight is given, pets must be approximately that weight or less. Companion animals, with a doctor’s note, are usually not restricted however certain breeds of dogs may be restricted. In some buildings pets are restricted to one floor. Pet Rent means there is an additional rental fee each month. Garage/Month – UG means underground parking often with a monthly fee. Det means the parking is a detached from the residence. Att means the parking is attached to the residence. Onsite parking means there is designated outdoor parking for residents off the street.

Common Areas/ Building Amenities

Residences have a variety of common areas for the enjoyment of residents. Here are some of the most common: community room (CO), craft room (CR), computer room (CP), business center (may include fax, computer, internet) (BC), beauty/barber shop (BS), theater (TH), chapel (CH), guest room(s) (GR), exercise room (EX), exercise program (EP), art studio, (AS), carwash (CW), library (Lib), woodworking shop (WS), and music room (MR). Area Features/Amenities – Most residences are built to take advantage of neighborhood amenities such as being located near a bus stop, shopping, grocery store, hospitals, library, (Lib) post office (PO), etc.

Campus/Onsite

While some residences are stand-alone independent living or memory care, many residences offer different types of housing or different levels of care in the same


building and/or on the same campus. They can range from Independent Living, (IL), to Assisted Living (AL), Memory Care (MC), Care Suites (CS), Enhanced Care (EC), and Nursing Homes (NH).

Services

In independent living, you typically pay for the unit you occupy and nothing else. But in housing with services, bricks and mortar are now combined with services. These may be included in the rent or you can pay for them as needed, à la carte. Some residences offer a package or have a variety of packages and you choose the one that best suits your needs. Since programs vary greatly, make sure you understand what you will be receiving included in your rent, and what you may need to pay extra for. If 2 persons are living in a unit there is usually a second fee for meals/services, so make sure to ask about those costs.

Payment for Services/ Waivers/Programs

While all places accept private pay, another way to pay for services is by using long term care insurance (Ltci). Still other residences will accept waivers; elderly waiver (EW), traumatic brain injury (Tbi), brain injury (BI), and Community Access for Disability Income (Cadi). Group residential home (Grh), is a program that will help pay for room/board and meals. Veteran’s benefits (VA), may also help pay for services. In some instances Medicare (MC) and Medical Assistance (MA) will also help pay for services. Response System – A way to signal for assistance. This could be a buzzer or pendant worn by the resident. Is the cost for this included in rent? Or is there a separate charge?

Dining/Meals Program – Are all meals or some meals included in the rent? If your program included 1 meal/day could you purchase more? If you have special dietary requirements, can those be met? Housekeeping – Is housekeeping once a week or once a month? Is it dusting/cleaning the floors or does it mean the end result is a sparkling clean bathroom? Is additional housekeeping available? Laundry/Linen – Does laundry/linen mean only linens/sheets? Does it include personal laundry? Is there an extra charge for personal laundry or are a certain number of loads per week included? Personal Care – How much personal care is included or is it purchased separately? Are there different packages that can be purchased? Will needing more care mean moving? Scheduled Transportation – This refers to transportation for group outings. If you need transportation to a medical appointment will staff help to arrange it for you? Highest Level of Memory Care – Mild, Moderate (Mod), Late/Acute (end of life).

FOR SUBSIDIZED RENTALS

Service Coordinator – If there is staff to coordinate services: meals, housekeeping, laundry, personal assistance.

Other Languages Spoken

Languages spoken other than English by someone on staff; Arabic (A), Hmong (HM), French (FR), Sign Language (SL), Spanish (SP), Somali (SO), Russian (R).

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

Architectural Styles, Services and Amenities

Condominiums and cooperatives generally resemble apartment buildings, and are made up of many individual living spaces. Townhomes or rowhouses can be single, double or multi-family – each with their own entrance. These may be one or more stories tall, with or without a basement. Any of these options may offer a few services, like dining. But they are usually designed for Independent Living. If a resident wishes to age in place, someone can arrange for services to be brought in. Because these types of housing appeal to active adults, they often include such amenities as a clubhouse, virtual golf, business center, and etc.

Condominium and Townhome Ownership

Owners of townhomes and condominiums (condos) hold the titles to their units. But common areas (halls, club house, parking garage, etc.), are jointly held by all residents. One difference between townhome and condo ownership is that townhome owners own the land their unit occupies. Condo owners do not. The land is owned jointly with other residents.

Mortgages and taxes are handled in the same way for any owned home. Additional townhome and condo fees are collected to cover the costs associated with common areas. Most condos and townhomes are eligible for reverse mortgages. This can help if there’s a substantial assessment for repairs/improvements in the common areas. Timing of projects like roof or siding replacement, is generally decided by an elected Board of Directors.

Cooperative Housing

Coop residents sign an occupancy agreement to pay a one-time membership fee buying shares in a corporation (made up of residents). But, the property is actually owned and operated by the corporation. Residents also pay a portion of the mortgage and maintenance costs in monthly fees. “Limited equity” coops allow sellers to earn only a certain amount of the gain/profit when their unit is resold. And, because the living space is not owned outright, conditions may apply when selling one’s membership and equity. These conditions should be explained at the time of purchase.

How

to Use a Reverse Mortgage to Purchase a Condominium, Townhome or House Many people wish to downsize their housing when they get into their 50s and 60s. Reasons vary: the youngest child has been launched and the nest seems too large, the travel bug has bitten them and they want to turn the key and leave, or perhaps they simply want to live maintenance free. You can use a reverse mortgage to purchase an FHA approved property from singlefamily houses to multi-unit residences to condominiums and townhouses. Cooperatives in Minnesota are not yet eligible for a reverse mortgage. How did this all come about? 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 Continued on page 154 Senior Housing Guide • www.seniorhousingguide.us

Independent Living Market Rate Rentals

“Market Rate Rentals” refer to housing that is paid for by rent, just like any other apartment. A lease is signed stating the monthly cost for a designated period of time. At the end of the lease, the landlord can increase the rent. Communities can offer several versions of apartments ranging from studio/efficiencies to 3 or even 3+ bedroom apartments with one or more bathrooms. Some also have a den, which is a windowless room that can be used for a variety of purposes. Prices vary widely by square footage or amenities (view, sunroom, in-unit laundry, etc.). Costs can also be affected by the addition of services like housekeeping and meals. Most market rate apartments are low or high-rise buildings. But some townhouse style units are available and these each have their own entrance.

Rentals with Income Guidelines

Some market rate complexes offer all, or a percentage of their units, under government programs that provide financial assistance to moderate-income individuals. Costs for these units are below market rate and renters pay a fixed amount for their monthly rent.

Rentals with Entrance Fees

Some market rate residences may charge an entrance fee. This fee can help to reduce the monthly rent rate or pay for amenities (like a bus, activities program, etc.). In some cases this may be refundable or partially refundable.

“Thanks again for all your help in getting settled into Oak Meadows. Mom was so happy there and always said she wished she had moved in years earlier. We had reasons to look into senior living elsewhere in the state, and Oak Meadows was the gold standard we used in evaluating them. You are doing an amazing job, and it is reflected in the quality of life of your residents.” ~ Former resident’s family member

Subsidized Rentals 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 you can use in a variety of locations.

How Much Rent Would I Pay?

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.

Type 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 below.

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 listed below.

Amenities and Supportive Services

Amenities differ from building to building, but most buidings have community and laundry rooms and elevators. Some subsidized buildings also have services available such as help with housekeeping, laundry, meals, and personal care. Payment for services is on a sliding-fee scale. Wheelchair-accessible apartments are available.

Housing Choice Vouchers

Vouchers help people afford to live in a building of their choice. The subsidy is tied to the person and even if you move you can usually keep your voucher. The process of getting a voucher can by lengthy and once you have it, you must find your own housing. Visit the Housing Link, www.housinglink.org to find landlords who wish to participate in this program. To apply for a voucher contact your local Housing Redevelopment Authority listed below.

Income Eligibility for Public Housing

Income Eligibility Limits* – Low Income, (LI), 1 person – Mpls $46,000 / St. Paul $46,100 Very Low Income, (VLI), 2 person – Mpls $52,000 / St. Paul $52,650 * Subject to change

Assisted Living Many terms can be used to describe the combination of housing and services. They can vary from state to state. But, in Minnesota, “Housing with Services” usually means some (or all) of the following services are available: dining, housekeeping, laundry and personal care. Sometimes some of these amenities are included in monthly rent; in other facilities these represent extra charges. “Assisted Living” communities offer the same services. But in order to be licensed as Assisted Living, minimum requirements must be met for services provided. These include: 2 meals daily; daily safety check system; weekly housekeeping and laundry service; assistance with 3 or more activities of daily living” (dressing, grooming, bathing, eating, transferring, toileting and continence care); as well as assistance in arranging transportation; plus, help accessing community and social resources. In addition, health-related services must include assistance with self-administration of medication, or staff-administration of medicines -- supervised by a Registered Nurse. Assisted Living residences must also have staff available 24/7 to respond to requests for health or safety needs*. It’s possible to find Assisted Living residences ranging from cozy, single-family homes with just a few (5-10) residents (see the section on Residential Care Homes), to much larger complexes with 100-plus residents. They may be standalone facilities, or part of a campus that offers a continuum of care. Costs vary depending on the level of care required, and these may change as a person’s needs change. Services are paid by the resident/family, either à la carte or as part of monthly rent. In some cases, waivers or programs can cover some or all of the costs. An excellent resource is the “Consumer Checklist for Assisted Living” which can be found on the website for the Assisted Living Federation of America: www.alfa.org. *Some Assisted Living settings have 12, or fewer, residents and may qualify for an exemption that permits them to use staff who are allowed to sleep onsite but can be awakened in order to respond to health or safety needs.

Long Term Care Options Counseling: Know all of your options Submitted

by the

Minnesota Board

Are you thinking about moving to an Assisted Living or another type of housing with services setting? Studies show people who do not plan ahead, often spend more of their hard earned money and are less informed to deal with a long term health crisis. Don’t wait, plan now. Get information and assistance to understand the risks you might have that could lead to the need for an expensive move. Understand how to manage those risks.

Memory Care DEMENTIA & ALZHEIMER’S RESIDENCES Residences specializing in the care of people with Alzheimer’s disease and Dementia (other memory conditions) are known as “Memory Care Residences.” Some of these communities are part of a campus that can include Independent Living, Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing/Long Term Care. More recently, stand-alone Memory Care facilities and “Residential Care Homes” are also popping up. These offer new options for those seeking 24-hour care, in a secured environment that safeguards loved ones. To learn more about Residential Care Homes, see the section with that title. A choice of a shared or a private room or an apartment may be available to Memory Care residents. Sometimes facilities incorporate special features – created to minimize confusion and agitation – such as secured walking paths and color-coded hallways or other visual cues. Many communities are extending visiting times and providing private gathering places in their communities to accommodate visiting families and friends. The best Memory Care communities provide ways for residents to build self-esteem, preserve dignity and be reminded of happy times and places. For example: repetition of basic skills and familiar tasks or routines can help stimulate the mind to keep residents from feeling confused and isolated. These considerations, along with the loving attention of friends and family help to ensure the best possible quality of life for those requiring Memory/Dementia Care.

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. You can visit many residential care homes at www.residentialcare-mn.org.

Is A Reverse Mortgage Right For You??

Continued from page 20

What if my house needs repair?

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

What if I decide to sell my house?

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.

When is the loan repaid?

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

What if I am currently receiving public benefits? 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.

Sound too good to be true? Call Reverse Mortgage Counselors, Inc., 651-368-8516, for more information.

How to Use a Reverse Mortgage to Purchase a Condominium, Townhome or House (more)

Continued from page 37 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 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.
