The Challenges of Caregiving A recent New York Times article discussed how after a five decade rise in the number of women in the workforce, that rise has stalled over the past 15 years. . The general consensus is that caring for children, historically a woman’s job, has taken its toll. But the other significant factor is that elder care responsibilities have also increased as the population in the United States has aged. This combination has made it challenging for many women to actively remain in the labor market. Today, 15 percent of the American population has reached retirement age. Many older Americans are unable to live independently, and the job of caring for them falls predominantly on wives and daughters. A quarter of the women age 45-64 years old and one in seven of those 35-44 are caring for an older relative. As a result, 10 percent of family caregivers have to cut back on their work hours and 6 percent leave the work force entirely. Surveys indicate that family caregivers spend about 20 hours a week providing care, with many reporting having to miss work or eventually losing their jobs. This trend is likely to continue - by 2030, more than 20 percent of Americans will be of retirement age and on average, will need three years of long term care. The burden on millennial adult children will be even greater as they

care for their children and parents. They also have fewer siblings with whom to share the responsibilities and with higher divorce rates among aging baby boomers, many will have no spouse to care for them. The U.S. Department of Labor projects that roughly 1.2 million home health aides and personal care aides will be added to the labor market to help address this need. In the meantime, prime working-age women will continue to leave the workforce to care for aging parents. HomeCare by RVNA offers certified aides on an hourly or live-in basis who can help to care for loved ones when family members cannot. For more information, call 203 894-5000. ~ Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by RVNA, a non-profit Medicare certified home healthcare agency with over 103 years of experience. RVNA provides home health aides through HomeCare by RVNA. See their ad on page 88. Founded in 1914, RVNA is an accredited non-profit Medicare-certified home healthcare agency that also supports public health and safety, and promotes the highest quality of life. RVNA provides compassionate care to all individuals, whether young or old, through a continuum of care that encompasses health care at home and in the community.

When To Utilize Adult Day Services “When is the best time to consider adult day care services for someone I care about?”

program that provides more specialized social work, nursing or physical and occupational therapy services.

That is a question often asked by caregivers and family members who are concerned about someone’s safety and well-being. The answer is simple: If you are concerned, then the time is now. If you find yourself asking if it’s time for additional caregiving services, then generally the answer leads to yes. A comprehensive health care plan for someone who needs additional support during the day should include a day program that provides both mental and physical activities. Evidence shows that attending a day service and engaging with others, eating nutritious, well-balanced meals, and participating in physical and mental activities can sometimes help slow memory loss. Some programs are designed specifically for those with dementia or other cognitive impairments. Other adult day programs provide structured activities for impaired older persons or disabled individuals of all ages. Such structured programs can help the person with the disability or disease maintain abilities that would otherwise deteriorate more rapidly. A person can locate a

By utilizing adult day care, family members can remain employed, do errands, rest, and be involved in other important areas of their lives. As with any service, the best time to start exploring what’s available is before you need it. According to Eldercare Online, you should consider using adult day services when your loved one: n

n

n

 an no longer structure his or C her own daily activities Is isolated or at risk for social isolation Cannot be safely left alone at home or there’s little supervision at home

It is beneficial to enroll someone in a day program at least one year before you believe they need the service, so that they can fully enjoy the many benefits the center offers. Spend a day at an adult day center, check out references and talk with geriatric professionals to determine if the center meets your needs. ~ Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Marie Johnson, MA, Social Services Coordinator, River House Adult Day Cener.

Summer days bring out the child in each of us. Whether you are young or old, or somewhere in-between, the hot days of summer can be filled with laughter, play and happy times together. Not sure what to do while you are outside? Here is a list of lowcost outdoor activities to enjoy with friends, neighbors and family members of all ages. While you are out in the summer sun, make sure all participants wear protective sunscreen and stay hydrated. Blow bubbles – It is fun to blow or chase bubbles. Blowing bubbles is a good way to exercise the lungs of senior adults too. You can purchase inexpensive bottles of bubbles at a local discount retailers or the dollar store. Play a game of ring toss – Arrange a dozen or more water bottles into a square, then toss some silicon wristbands or inexpensive bangle bracelets to see who can ring the bottles. Adjust the rules to fit the ages, sizes and skills of each contender. Winners earn bragging rights or even a small treat. Splash in a kiddie pool – Getting just a little wet takes the heat off the day. Dangle your toes in the water and just relax. A plastic dishpan can work as an inexpensive alternative for engaging in water play.

Those who are more adventurous and swift-footed may prefer to dash through a sprinkler. Frolic with water balloons – Filling up those slippery balloons is half the fun. It’s a science experiment too – how much water can that balloon hold without breaking? Whether you toss those oh-so-full balloons carefully or not is up to you. Promptly throw away the remains of broken balloons as these can become a choking hazard for young children, adults with dementia and animals. Picnic on the lawn – Something as simple as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich tastes better outside, whether you sit a picnic table or on the grass. Include a few carrots sticks and a piece of fruit to round out the meal. Engaging in activities, inside and out, can create better days for your aging loved ones. Our trained caregivers are also available to provide customized meaningful activities for older adults in the comfort of home. Let us help you live your best life possible. ~

Medicare 2018 “In A Nutshell” (Parts A, B & Medigap Plans) Original Medicare is a government health insurance program primarily for people age 65 and older. It has four main parts: A, B, C & D. The chart below is an example of how Parts A & B work together with a traditional Medicare supplement also known as a “Medigap Plan.” Medicare Part A Hospital Insurance

Medicare Part B Medical Insurance

Supplemental Policy Plans A - N Medigap

Generally no cost (If you paid Medicare taxes while working)

Most people pay monthly $134.00 (Premium could be higher based on income)

Premium varies by company, age, location & other factors.

$1,316 deductible (per benefit period) It is possible to pay the $1,316 deductible and other daily charges for multiple stays & extended care. Plan covers: Inpatient hospital care, home health care services, hospice, inpatient skilled nursing & more. Providers are paid by Medicare assignment. No coverage outside USA. No out-of-pocket maximum. Many people add a Medigap plan, Part D or an Advantage Plan (Part C) to fill the “gaps” in the coverage.

$183 annual deductible. 80/20 after deductible. Plan covers: health care providers, ambulance, emergency care, outpatient surgical, preventive services and other Medicare approved benefits. Most doctors accept Medicare patients. No coverage outside the USA. No out-of-pocket maximum. Many people add a Medigap plan, Part D or an Advantage Plan (Part C) to fill the “gaps” in the coverage.

These plans generally pay the Part A & B deductibles, the 20% not covered by Part B & other Medicare eligible benefits. When this coordinates with Medicare, many benefits are 100% covered Plans coordinate with any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare Can provide benefits outside USA Plans are only available through insurance companies. Need to add a Part D plan to cover prescription drugs & avoid penalties. Must have Part A & B to enroll.

For more information visit www.medicare.gov or call 1-800-MEDICARE. There is no additional cost to use the services of a full time insurance professional.

What causes Low Vision, where can I get help? What is Low Vision Low Vision as defined by The Vision Council, is a term used to refer to a visual impairment that is not correctable through surgery, pharmaceuticals, glasses or contact lenses. It is often characterized by partial sight, such a blurred vision, blind spots, or tunnel vision. Low vision can impact people of all ages, but is primarily associated with older adults. What causes Low Vision Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD/ARMD): AMD is a leading cause of vision loss among Americans over age 60. It accounts for nearly half of all low vision

n

cases. It is caused when the part of the eye responsible for sharp, straight-on vision – the macula – breaks down and causes a loss of central vision. There are two types of AMD, wet and dry. Wet AMD is caused by the growth of abnormal blood vessels under the macula. Central vision loss occurs rapidly with wet AMD. In dry AMD, light-sensitive cells in the macula slowly break down, leading to a gradual loss of central vision. Diabetic Retinopathy: According to the National Eye Institute, more than 30 percent of Americans diagnosed with diabetes have some form of diabetic retinopathy. It is a major cause of blindness and is directly related to high blood sugar, which damages blood vessels.

With glaucoma, portions of vision are lost over time, usually with no warning signs or symptoms prior to vision deterioration. For many, a decrease in peripheral vision is the first sign of glaucoma.

n

Cataracts: Over 20 million people in the US alone have cataracts according to Prevent Blindness America. It appears as a clouding of the lens of the eye.

Retinitis Pigmentosa: This is a group of inherited diseases affecting the retina resulting in progressive vision loss. This type of vision impairment often begins in childhood with poor night vision and progresses over time.

Good News About Macular Degeneration Visual impairment or legal blindness affects approximately 3% of (AMD) the U.S. population over the age of 40, or a total of 4.2 million people. The most common cause of vision loss in this age-group is age-related macular degeneration (AMD), accounting for approximately 54% of cases. With increasing age, the prevalence of vision loss climbs to over 6% among Caucasians over the age of 85. AMD has two forms: Dry (non-exudative) or Wet (exudative). Even though the wet form only represents 10-15% of cases of AMD, it accounts for the majority of cases of significant vision loss. In wet AMD, abnormal blood vessels grow (neovascularization) into the retina and are prone to leak and bleed, causing scarring and permanent loss of central vision. This all sounds like bad news for seniors, but in fact, there is a lot to be thankful for in the treatment of wet AMD. Not your parents’ disease. If you ever had a parent or relative being treated for wet AMD in the past, unfortunately the disease often robbed patients of their central vision despite laser and other treatments. Thankfully, the treatment of wet AMD has improved substantially in the last 15 years and there are 3 injectable drugs currently used with good success. If a patient experiences new blurry or distorted vision

from wet AMD, the current treatments can stabilize vision in 95% of patients and improve vision in 30-40% of patients. Area of active research. Despite the improvement in treatment for wet AMD, there is no cure for the disease, and the current injection treatments often need to be continued for life. As a result, treatments that last longer and require fewer injections are being studied. In addition, eye drops, pills and other less invasive treatments are being investigated. A cure for this disease lies in the promise of stem cell or gene therapy. If either one of these treatments prove effective, then far fewer people will have to suffer from age-related vision impairment. It is recommended that people over the age of 65 (even without any risk factors or symptoms) have an annual eye exam. If you have AMD, your eye doctor may send you to a retinal specialist who can evaluate and develop a treatment plan that is right for you as well as determine whether you qualify to participate in any new clinical research trials. ~ Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Dr. Patrick Coady of New England Retina Associates.

Wound Healing Among Seniors Seniors are prone to skin complications ranging from itching, scaling and mild dryness to grave skin conditions such as infection and ulcerations. As we age, our skin injures more easily and heals more slowly. A severe skin infection or nonhealing wound in the elderly can be very serious, even fatal. Common skin conditions of the elderly n Senile Purpura — purplish spots that appear most often on the arms and legs due to thinness of the skin and frailty of capillaries and blood vessels below the surface. n Stasis Dermatitis — more com-

mon in elderly women than men; characterized by dry, itchy skin. n Exfoliative Dermatitis —more severe than stasis dermatitis, characterized by excessive peeling and shedding of skin. The associated severe itching can lead to infections. n Skin Infections / Infestations — bacterial infections and parasitic infestation such as scabies or ringworm are common in the elderly. n Cancerous and noncancerous skin growths n Viral skin disorders — such as shingles and herpes zoster.

It Starts At “Hello!” For older Americans especially those experiencing memory loss, hiring a stranger to enter their home can be frightening. Even with another loved one living at home, the thought of someone new and unknown visiting them for a few hours a day can haunt their thoughts and make them uneasy

about accepting in-home care services. From the beginning, the home care agency’s representative must be empathetic to the client’s concerns and respectful of their wishes before they provide them with the home care services they need. How does this happen? It all starts at “Hello!” When a family member or the prospective client makes the first

agency’s qualified caregivers which further strengthens their trust. For many adults the benefits of “aging in place” in their homes amid familiar surroundings and routines far outweighs the other care alternatives. When needing assistance in their homes, hiring a home care agency is a safe, affordable way to ensure your loved one’s activities of daily living and needs for socialization are consistently met and your family does not become the employer by hiring someone privately. Agency-based caregivers provide everything from a few hours of companionship per week to 24/7 live-in care, and everything in between. Home care services include companionship, housekeeping, and assistance with errands, shopping, doctors’ appointments, and other activities plus assistance with dressing and personal care, and medication reminders. Did you know Home Care Agencies are... nR  egistered and overseen by the CT Department of Consumer Services. Hint: The lower the license number,

the longer the agency has been providing services to clients. nE  ngaged in rigorous vetting process when hiring caregivers that includes background and reference checks. nR  esponsible for paying workers’ compensation and general liability insurance for their caregivers as well as payroll taxes. nE  xperienced at hiring and finding just the right caregiver for your loved one. nA  ble to provide a substitute caregiver when your scheduled caregiver is unable to work. Families considering home care will benefit from an agency’s years of experience and its partnership to develop the right plan of care, find the right caregiver(s) to provide the care, adjust the ongoing care plan as the client’s condition changes, and address issues and challenges that often bewilder inexperienced families. It starts with “Hello”! ~ Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Companions & Homemakers, Inc., Connecticut’s oldest and most trusted home care agency. See their ad on page 90.

HOSPICE CARE DEFINITIONS

Hospice Care Definitions HOSPICE (See definition in home health grid definitions) Services Provided: N-Nurse – Assesses patient’s physical needs, develops and coordinates the plan of care, ensures symptom control and management, provides patient/family teaching as needed. SSW-Social Worker – Assesses patient and family emotional and social needs, develops a plan of care, provides counseling, referrals and support to meet identified needs. Chaplain – Assesses patient and family spiritual needs, develops a plan of care, provides counseling, assists with memorial preparations. Home Health Aide – Provides direct personal care to patient, emotional support to patient and family, reports identified needs to RN. Volunteer – Provides respite and needed non-medical services for patients and their families, offers support at time of death and during bereavement. Levels of Care: RO-Routine Care – Occurs when regularly scheduled visits are adequate in maintaining the individual’s symptom management. Care is provided at the individual’s residence, this can be their private home, a retirement community, an assisted living, or a skilled nursing facility.

RE-Respite Care – Provided when the family needs time to rest or go out of town for a short time. Ideally, this service is provided for five consecutive days. Care may be provided in a long-term care facility depending on the condition of the individual. Hospice is responsible for financial arrangements with the Long-term care facility, at no cost to the patient or the family. GIP – General In-Patient Care – Provided in a skilled nursing facility when the symptoms cannot be managed elsewhere. The skilled nursing facility must have 24-hour R.N. coverage as deemed by Medicare guidelines. General in-patient care is usually short in duration. This level of care is usually due to symptoms which are out of control and more intensive nursing services are required. If an individual is at a care facility, room and board are covered by hospice during this period. CC-Continuous Care – Provided to prevent the individual from going to the hospital when a crisis occurs. Continuous care also is given when more help is needed to assist the individual and family in coping with the crisis. This level of care is usually provided at the individual’s residence no matter where that may be. The criteria for continuous care may include: Severe pain or symptoms which are out of control, psychotic

RESOURCES FOR AGING WELL

24/7 ADMISSIONS – Can a patient be admitted to the particular hospice agency 24/7? If a patient qualifies for hospice care, they should be admitted as early as the family requests. Many agencies admit patients to hospice, 24/7, evenings weekends, and holidays. GRIEF SUPPORT GROUPS – Grief is the normal and universal reaction humans have to the loss of those they love. When your loved one passes, you may go through a period of bereavement and experience grief. Each hospice agency will have a grief and bereavement support program. Many provide grief groups that meet and address issues of grief in a supportive group setting. INDIGENT PATIENTS – Does the hospice accept non funded or indigent patients? This is usually on a case by case basis and at the determination of the hospice company. Many have a non-profit organization that can help support the care of non-covered patients. Many Hospice agencies utilize social workers to help find resources for indigent families.

LICENSED MASSAGE THERAPY – Massage has become one of the fastest growing trends in therapy for hospice patients. Used as a method for relaxation to alleviate stress, anxiety and pain with a light hands-on approach, as well as providing an alternative to those who can’t take medication or prefer not to, massage therapy has become essential in hospice care. This is not reimbursed by Medicare; it is an added benefit that select hospice companies have decided to provide for their patients.

HOSPICE CARE DEFINITIONS

episodes, breakdown of caregiver, imminent death and family unable to cope. Continuous care is typically reserved for end of life or other crises that requires a constant presence by a nurse or care team.

SeniorsBlueBook.com

MUSIC THERAPY – Music Therapy is an established healthcare profession that uses music to address physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of individuals. A music therapist is not just a music performer, but actually trained in counseling and music. A music therapist creates goals and objectives for their patients and uses music activities and music experiences (listening, composition, improvisation, or playing/singing a familiar song) in order to achieve those goals. This is not reimbursed by Medicare; it is an added benefit that select hospice companies have decided to provide to their patients. Continued on next page

HOSPICE CARE DEFINITIONS

Hospice Care Definitions continued

PAIN PUMPS AVAILABLE – Many patients have their symptoms controlled through oral medications. Some situations require a pain pump where medications are administered through an IV pump. If this is the situation, inquire with the hospice RN case manager to see if pain pumps are available through their agency. PCP-OVERSIGHT – Can the hospice patient retain their own primary care physician in addition to the hospice medical director? All hospice organizations require a medical director, a physician to oversee their care. Many times the hospice medical director will work in conjunction with the patient’s own physician. The patient, family and hospice team can determine which physicians will oversee the care and certify the hospice eligibility criteria. PET THERAPY – There’s nothing like a visit from a four-legged creature

to brighten the day of a terminally ill patient. Pet therapy teams visit with patients wherever they reside – at home or in professional care settings. For some patients, contact with these gentle animals evokes memories of pets in their lives, past or present. Studies have shown many benefits of pet companionship, ranging from reduced blood pressure and anxiety to relief from boredom, pain and loneliness. This service is not reimbursed by Medicare, it is an added benefit that select hospice companies have decided to provide for their patients. VA CONTRACT – If the patient is not a Medicare recipient and is covered by the VA, the VA will make payments directly to their contracted agencies. If a patient is a Veteran, but is a Medicare Recipient, they may choose any Medicare approved hospice agency for their care. ~

(EOL) medical plan, also called an advance directive, that outlines the care you would want if you were too ill to speak for yourself.

On the other hand, taking the time to complete an advance directive form could bring untold peace of mind to distraught family members should you become terminally ill, seriously injured, dealing with advanced dementia or near the end of life. Monday, April 16, 2018 is National Healthcare Decision Day. This day has been designated to highlight this critically important subject, even if most folks are reluctant to broach it. If you neglect to create an EOL plan while you’re in good health and of sound mind, you risk leaving critical decisions about your medical care in the hands of loved ones and medical professionals. Anyone who has visited a seriously ill family member in the hospital knows that it can be a time of stress and difficult decisions. Any decisions you make now spare the people you love from additional pain—and spare you from medical procedures you don’t want, while

keeping medical expenses in check. Among the issues an advance directive can tackle are:

HOSPICE CARE

Give Them the Best Gift Few subjects can be as unsetYou Can Give tling as creating an end-of-life

The types of life-support treatments you would want, or not want, at the end of life n Whether you would want tubes inserted to provide nutrition and hydration n The name of the person you authorize to make medical decisions on your behalf n

In honor of National Healthcare Decision Day, put your wishes in writing. Start by going to NHDD.org or HospiceCanHelp.com. VITAS Healthcare is the nation’s largest provider of hospice solutions.

SENIOR HOUSING DEFINITIONS

Senior Housing Definitions AGE RESTRICTIONS – Some communities have a restriction on the youngest age they are allowed to accept. These restrictions vary by community. ALZHEIMER’S / DEMENTIA ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITY – Licensed assisted living facility or skilled nursing facility that specialize in delivering care to victims of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Communities are typically bedroom-style rental units with common areas for dining and activities. Many are locked for residents’ safety. Specifically trained staff usually serves the special needs of this population. Amenities vary for each community. ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITY – Typically apartment-style with kitchenettes and private baths. Some offer companion accommodations. Personal assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) bathing, grooming, dressing, toileting, eating and ambulation. Rates vary from an all-inclusive to base rates with levels of care. Amenities vary for each community. DAY CARE – Any provider can elect to provide day/night services on a short or long term basis. Rates typically include a place to rest, one or two meals and snacks and activities

DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING & URBAN DEVELOPMENT (HUD) – helps apartment owners offer reduced rents to low-income tenants. HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM – (Sec 8) - find your own place and use the voucher to pay for all or part of the rent. Participating households are required to pay the greater of 10% of their gross annual income or 30% of their adjusted income towards rent. To qualify, a household’s annual income must not exceed the applicable income limit for the area as adjusted by family size. (Sec 236) Property owners in this program make mortgage payments that are based on a 1% mortgage interest rate. HUD then provides a subsidy to their lender to cover the difference between 1% and the market interest rate on the property’s loan. Participating households are required to pay rent equal to the greater of 30% of their adjusted income (not to exceed the market rent) or the basic rent amount set by HUD for that particular property. Any amount paid by the household that is more than basic rent is considered excess rent, which the owner pays

The Residence at Summer Street offers the highestquality independent, assisted and memory care living. The community is owned and operated by LCB Senior Living, a senior housing pioneer with roots going back more than 20 years. Located adjacent to Scalzi Park in downtown Stamford, Summer Street’s state-of-the art construction embodies true luxury living. Residents also enjoy a full calendar of educational and cultural opportunities, from visiting lectures to trips to the theater.

Another cornerstone of Summer Street is LCB’s renowned Reflections Memory Care Program, created in collaboration with some of the nation’s finest hospitals. This nonpharmacological approach to memory care focuses on the whole person, not the disease, and has proven positive outcomes.

A limited number of early depositors at Summer Street will be named Community Founders, receiving an array of exclusive benefits and savings. Founder’s Club members will enjoy special perks ranging from apartment customization options to their own private catered parties and a credit toward white glove moving expenses.

Get Active, Feel Great! Rosemary Thomas proudly endorses physical fitness and the saying, “If you don’t move it, you will lose it.” After two hip replacements and fluctuating weight, she knew she needed to step up her fitness routine to regain mobility. Joining SilverSneakers® provided her with the consistency she desired and the confidence she needed to begin fine-tuning her body. In addition to attending SilverSneakers classes regularly, she loves cardio and dancing. Thomas encourages others to get active and says, “Don’t meet me at the gym; beat me getting to the gym.” In 2016, Thomas was selected as one of 10 finalists for the SilverSneakers Richard L. Swanson Inspiration Award due to her inspiring story of improving her health and happiness, and being a dedicated fitness champion. With SilverSneakers, older adults can get active and feel great, at their convenience – and at no additional cost. More than 14.5 million people are eligible for the SilverSneakers benefit through more than 60 health plans that include the nation’s leading Medicare Advantage health plans, Medicare Supplement carriers and group retiree plans. As Thomas’ story shows, fitness

is personal. Each individual should exercise where, when and how they want. That’s why SilverSneakers has built a national network of more than 13,000 participating locations and fitness centers – use the pool at one location in the morning, jog on a treadmill at another in the afternoon And take a class at another gym in the evening. In addition, the program includes SilverSneakers FLEX®, with more than 70 unique types of classes in convenient neighborhood locations, such as churches, recreation centers and older-adult living communities. Celebrating more than 25 years, SilverSneakers is the nation’s leading community fitness program designed specifically for older Americans. No other program has such a rich history and experience in older adult fitness. What began in 1992 as a first-of-itskind class for older adults, has now grown and evolved to accommodate all fitness levels, from Baby Boomers and beyond. For more information about SilverSneakers or to check eligibility, visit www.silversneakers.com or call 1-877-402-6753. In addition, our Spanish customer service team is available at 1-888-617-6392.

Importance of Community Studies have shown that Assisted Living Living homes provide a positive impact on our quality of life as we age. Across the United States, and in other countries, there has been a lifestyle change occurring. Since the 1980’s naturally occurring retirement communities (NORCs) have increased significantly. These communities exist in apartments like those found in an assisted living community. It is believed that these communities provide greater health benefits than regular neighborhoods because their physical and social environments have a positive impact on the health of retirees. The environment enables retirees to be more physically and socially active and fosters a sense of community and well-being. NORC’s that share similar professional backgrounds (musicians, social workers, teachers…) are common and successful since socialization is such an integral component of healthy aging. “In the Galveston area, I knew of a group of social workers who purchased a Victorian home together. They got together every evening for dinner, socialized together when they wanted, otherwise lived very independent lives, apart from each other” says Terry Hornikel, Executive Director of the new assisted living opening in Fairfield, Connecticut – Sturges Ridge: a Benchmark community. “They

raised their families around the dinner table and wanted to end their day with peers and friends. Their families were scattered and they didn’t want to age alone. As social workers they understood the value of community and the importance of interacting daily with people who had a significant impact on their lives” continues Hornikel. ProMatura, a global market research firm, recently concluded a study of assisted living resident and family members that details the impact assisted living is having on the lives of California seniors. Dr. Margaret Wylde, PhD, ProMatura’s President states “that the study makes it clear that, even as residents face the physical challenges of aging, they can enjoy a good quality of life when they feel safe, have control in their lives, and are recognized and part of a caring community.” This study demonstrates the positive impact assisted living and memory care communities, such as Sturges Ridge of Fairfield, have on the lives of their residents and the community at large. ~ Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Terry Hornikel, Executive Director at Sturges Ridge of Fairfield.

Service Project with Local Catholic School When students from a local Catholic School visited Brightview on New Canaan for their annual service project, they drew a lot of smiling faces. Together, at the senior living community in Norwalk, Connecticut, they filled 36 stockings for children in need at the Thorpe Residences in the Bronx in New York. They also handwrote notes and made drawings. “We really appreciated the

opportunity to spend time with your lovely residents,” wrote parent volunteers, Ann and Megan. “We look forward to future visits.” “Everyone benefits when we bring residents and students together,” added Vibrant Living Director Susan Weisler. “And we spread joy to others – a win – win – win!” ~ Editor’s Note: See Brightview on New Canaan ad on Back Cover.

It’s important to understand the types of communities available to you, along with the services offered. Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs) typically include independent living, assisted living, and memory care and some may offer skilled nursing and rehabilitation. These communities are worth considering, as they offer a variety of services within one community, maintenance-free living, social activities and increased levels of care as needs change. So, why CCRCs? Care. One of the most important aspects of any senior living commu-

Retirement. Retired life is supposed to be as active or relaxed as you please. A CCRC offers a low-maintenance lifestyle where lawn care, snow removal and security are no longer a concern. A calendar full of activities and a campus with state of the art amenities allow residents to focus on their own happiness, keep their minds sharp and encourage socialization. Caregivers. Having an option to live in one location for the duration of their lives and plan for future care upon entrance provides a great level of comfort to current caregivers. Knowing they can rely on caring and highly qualified staff members to take care of their loved ones

allows the caregiver to enjoy life to the fullest without added stress. Having committed and dedicated teams to serve individual needs for residents is a huge selling point. Before choosing a senior living community, it is important to learn as much as possible, plan a visit and ask questions. While CCRCs share some common features, it’s important to find a place where you feel most at home. ~ Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Elizabeth S.

MEMORY CARE ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITIES

5 Caregiving Resolutions As a busy caregiver, it can For 2018 be all too easy to let your own well-being take a backseat to your loved one’s needs.

Here are five caregiving resolutions I encourage you to adopt – and keep – in 2018 and beyond:

1

I will ask for help. Caregiver burnout is real. When you find yourself overwhelmed, sad or isolated, ask family members to cover for you while you run errands, meet a friend for lunch or enjoy some me-time. If negative feelings persist, ask a medical professional for help.

2

I will add self-care to our daily routine. Self-care lifts you physically, mentally and emotionally. If you enjoy cooking, add fresh fruits, whole grains and lean meats to your recipes. If you don’t, ask a family member to take this chore off your plate while you take your loved one outside for fresh air and exercise. When your loved one is resting, use that time to relax, pursue a hobby or catch up with a friend.

3

I will socialize with people who support us. Joining a caregiver support group and connecting with people on a similar journey can help you to better understand your role and your loved one’s needs, provide useful

caregiving tips and tricks, and make your job less stressful.

4

I will continue to look for ways to connect with my loved one. People with dementia often enjoy nostalgic moments. Flip through family photos, old postcards and other mementos, tell stories, listen to favorite songs or cook a favorite meal together. If your loved one is able, visit a park, museum or restaurant that interests them.

5

I will explore appropriate options for my loved one as necessary. Recognize when your loved one’s needs become too much for you. If you need a break, consider visiting home care services or a respite stay at a memory care community. If your loved one can no longer live at home, consider a residential community designed specifically to support and care for people with dementia. While this new reality can be difficult, it’s important to remember that securing the right accommodations and care can greatly increase your loved one’s quality of life. ~

a private or shared bath, meals, activities, transportation, phone service, cable television and all personal/nursing care. Payor sources usually accepted are Medicare, Medicaid, VA, some insurance plans and private sources. TRACH CARE - Refers to care administered to patients who have undergone a tracheotomy. A tracheotomy is a surgical procedure in which a cut or opening is made in the windpipe (trachea). The surgeon inserts a tube into the opening to bypass an obstruction, allow air to get to the lungs, or remove secretions.

VENTILATOR - Moves breatheable air into and out of the lungs, to provide the mechanism of breathing for a patient who is physically unable to breathe, or is breathing insufficiently. WANDERGUARD - Offered at some facilities. A resident with memory loss or confusion wears a small discrete pendant. Each external door in the care home is fitted with a radio detector which detects when a pendant moves near an exit. The WanderGuard will sound an audible alarm, alerting the staff of a patient wandering. ~ Indicates website link on seniorsbluebook.com 163

Respite Care Benefits Everyone, Eighty-three percent of the help Especially provided to older adults in the United States comes Caregivers from family members, friends or other unpaid caregivers.

In the past year alone, nearly 16 million family and friends provided more than 18 billion hours of unpaid care to those with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Most of these caregivers rate their emotional stress as high or very high, and many report symptoms of depression. When a survey co-sponsored by The National Alliance for Caregiving and AARP asked such caregivers what they needed most, the majority responded “free time or a break for themselves.” Respite care, a service offered by The Village at Waveny as well as other assisted living communities, provides caregivers with a temporary break from caregiving by providing secure, temporary lodging and hands-on care for individuals with dementia. It enables caregivers to rest, relax and reconnect with family and friends. When a family caregiver is involved in 24-hour care, day-to-day tasks become harder to complete and self-neglect can occur. As a group, Alzheimer caregivers are twice as likely as other caregivers to be providing the highest levels of care for more than 40 hours a week, and face a greater risk of developing stress-induced conditions. Respite stays can alleviate some caregiver burden and,

in doing so, help to maintain personal well-being and a healthy lifestyle. A short placement in a therapeutic assisted living environment affords a senior’s spouse or adult child some time to recharge their batteries, and attend to themselves and other family members appropriately. Many caregivers find that when care is resumed at home after a respite stay, it can be a little less stressful for everyone. Unfortunately, many caregivers feel it is selfish to focus on their own needs, and wait until they are overwhelmed, exhausted and desperate before seeking help. Such situations are detrimental to all parties involved. Caregivers should know that they are not alone, and that there are highly-qualified people and community resources available to help them. In addition to using respite services to regain some time for personal rejuvenation, a respite stay can also serve as a helpful and convenient way for seniors to sample assisted living before making long-term decisions. ~ Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Waveny LifeCare Network, a comprehensive continuum of care in New Canaan that has served the changing needs of seniors and their families for over 40 years.
