Aging and Geriatric care Seniors and families struggling Management to make their way through the maze of eldercare issues would benefit from the services of a geriatric Care Manager (gCM).

“geriatric Care Management is the professional assessment, planning, coordination, supervision and management of healthcare and quality-of-life services. It is a preventive and proactive approach to healthcare.”1 unfortunately, because the value of geriatric Care Management is not well understood, many seniors are not benefitting from the care services and resources available to them. A historic number of baby boomers are reaching the age of 65. This trend will continue through 2030 and on through 2050 for those reaching 85 and older (Figure 1). This change in demographics is emphasizing the need for compassionate and effective decision-making regarding complex senior issues. Also increasing is the need for senior care professionals, such as gCM’s, who can assist seniors and families in addressing these issues. Care decisions that seniors and their families face include caregiving options, housing options, home care services, wellness regimes, medical management, nutrition services, and legal and financial considerations. These decisions can be difficult and in the event of a crisis, overwhelming. A gCM utilizes their experience and knowledge to

assist seniors, family members, and caregivers through these complexities and decrease the stress that is common along this continuum of care. A few examples of situations in which gCM’s provide assistance are listed below: n You are alone or have family at a distance who are unable to assist you with finding and coordinating the care services, such as assistance with medication, bathing, meal-preparation, housekeeping and transportation, that you need in order to remain living at home. n You need assistance understanding Medicare, Medicaid, Veteran Benefits, Advance Directives, Powers of Attorney, various long-term care housing options and their related costs. n You are an adult child trying to meet the care needs of a parent who can no longer live independently due to dementia or illness, but are already overwhelmed yourself with “life situations.” gCM’s have various backgrounds and experience in human services fields such as nursing, social worker, counselor, psychology, or gerontology. Some have a combination of skills and experiences, including finance, that make them suited to assisting seniors and their families. gCM’s are critical to and contribute significantly in addressing the growing need for senior care professionals “... gCM

meet the senior’s needs and how to access resources 83% experienced saving in caregiving and medical costs Although gCM services are not normally covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurances, families have stated “it is well worth the money” because uncertainty and stress is greatly reduced, cost-effective services are appropriately identified the first-time and issues are resolved more quickly. It is our hope that you now better understand the value gCM’s provide to seniors and families and that you will call one if you are expecting or experiencing eldercare related issues. Most gCM’s happily provide an initial free phone consultation to explain how they can help and to provide an estimate of the cost.

Financial exploitation Financial Exploitation is one of the fastest growing forms of Elder Abuse. Financial Exploitation occurs when a person misuses or takes the assets of a vulnerable adult. This often occurs without the explicit knowledge or consent of a senior or disabled adult, depriving them of vital financial resources. Some of the perpetrators may include family members, caregivers, neighbors, bank employees, friends and acquaintances, pastors, other business professionals, or persons posing as such. The types of exploitation that may involve these perpetrators are: n Fraud – involves the use of deception, trickery false pretense or dishonest acts or statements for financial gain (i.e. falsifying records, forgeries, unauthorized check-writing and schemes) n Theft – taking money or property without knowledge, consent or authorization (examples include, taking of cash, valuables, medications or other personal property.) There are other types of financial exploitation that can ploy, un-expecting elderly to provide their funds for goods, services, investments, assistance or charities. Some of these examples include; contractor scams, telemarketing scams, electronic,

lottery or fake prizes, real estate, tax related, mortgage or investments. There are sites online with more information on Elder Abuse and preventative measures to keep safe. Please see the following: www. stopfraud.gov, www.ncall.us/resources, or www.ncjrs.gov/elderabuse/ Reports of financial exploitation of vulnerable adults often involve allegations of other forms of abuse and neglect as well. Adult Protection Services (APS) investigates all the reported types of abuse, assesses the victim’s cognitive capacity, and takes appropriate steps to stop or mitigate the abuse to the extent possible. Other forms of Elder Abuse include Neglect, Emotional Abuse, Physical Abuse and Sexual Abuse. FACES Family Justice Center provides multiple services in one location for victims of: Child Abuse, Domestic Violence, Elder Abuse, and Sexual Abuse. FACES currently provides Case Management and other services for individuals 50 and older that meet the criteria for Abuse Later in Life. If you, or someone you know, is vulnerable to or a victim of abuse or exploitation, please contact us to find out about available options and services.

Living Will & Durable Power of When it comes to deciding which Attorney for Health advanced-planning health care documents are best for you, it care vs. Post is important to understand your options and which one is most appropriate for your situation.

Proper legal planning with documents such as a Living Will, Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care and, in certain situations, a POST, are particularly important because they allow you to make your health care wishes known and designate a legal agent to act on your behalf. An “advanced directive” is an important legal document in which a person states his or her wishes for medical treatment and appoints an agent to make substitute medical decisions if the person cannot effectively communicate. It is an appropriate document for any competent adult to have. The first part of the document is a living Will and the second part is a durable Power of attorney for Health Care. An additional document called a POST (Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment) is available for persons to complete with a physician and is appropriate to execute when a person has an advanced chronic or terminal illness and end of life is near. living Will A Living Will allows a person to spell out desired medical treatment

in anticipation of being unable to communicate medical treatment wishes in the future. The Living Will becomes effective when a physician determines that a person is either: n terminally ill, that artificial life-sustaining procedures would serve only to artificially prolong life, and death is imminent; or n in a persistent vegetative state. The document states a person’s choices regarding artificial nutrition, artificial hydration and life-sustaining medical treatment or procedures. It also directs that a person receive medical treatment or care that may be required to be free of pain and distress. A Living Will does not require a physician’s signature. durable Power of attorney for Health Care A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care means a person (the “principal”) gives legal authority to another (the “agent”) to act on behalf of the principal and it typically includes a HIPAA release. “Durable” means the agent can act when the principal loses capacity. A Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care enables an agent to make any or all health care decisions on behalf of the

POST A POST is a Physician Orders for Scope of Treatment. It is more detailed and comprehensive than a Living Will and is appropriate for a person who: n Has an incurable or irreversible injury n Has a chronic, progressive, or end-stage disease, illness or condition n Is in a terminal state The POST addresses choices about natural death, resuscitation (such as CPR or DNR, Full Code or No Code, etc.), comfort measures, limited or aggressive interventions, artificial fluids and nutrition, antibiotics and blood products. The POST form can only be completed by a patient and his/her physician, advanced practice professional nurse or physician assistant.

Start the Conversation & Take Action Starting a conversation about values, priorities, quality of life and end of life can be difficult. For many people, contemplating an accident or illness is an unpleasant topic that results in avoidance or putting off important decision-making for another day. However, review of the Terry Schiavo case in Florida or the Nancy Cruzan case in Missouri illustrates that failure to do so can sometimes lead to involvement of hospital ethics committees, the courts and lawyers, or bitter disagreements among family members. This may be avoided by planning in advance and executing Advanced Directive documents which give you greater control and freedom of choice.

principal. Designation of an agent can help prevent power struggles among family members, and help assure that the principal’s wishes regarding health care treatment will be known, honored and carried out.

Who needs a Guardian? And what are the duties of a guardian? guardianship is needed when a person is no longer able to handle their own affairs and can no longer make or communicate important decisions about their health, property and family. If this person has not already designated someone as their durable power of attorney for health care and/ or finances, then they will need a guardian. The role of a guardian, first and foremost, is to develop a plan to determine how to care for the needs and goals of a person called a “ward.” The guardian’s main objective is to make the same decision for the ward that they would make if they were capable of doing so on their own. If the ward is able to help in decision making then, “the least restrictive alternative” should be used. This approach helps the ward and the guardian come together to make decisions that allow for the most freedom. A guardian should always make sure a ward’s independence and dignity is taken under consideration when a decision is made. When making decisions, they must take into account: n

n

The persons ethnic, religious and cultural values The persons wishes with geography, supporters and spirituality

n

n

Family and friends opinions and thoughts Advice from medical professionals

Making decisions on behalf of another is only part of the guardian’s duties. Other duties and responsibilities are: n

Ensure end-of-life provisions are in place n

n

n

n n

n

Complete an assessment and create a person centered treatment plan Create a HIPAA compliant case file that includes all of the persons advance directives

Review and evaluate service provider plans and their implementations. Ensuring that all orders are in place Visit the person at least monthly Set up an effective communication procedure with all parties assisting in cares Evaluate placement and options

guardianship is the logical alternative when a person simply can’t make the decisions required for their health and well-being. Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Lisa Page, owner of Castle Rock Services. For more information, see our ad on page 17.

Don’t Fall for Fall! As fall is approaching a piece on falls or rather not falling seems appropriate.

n

n

I meet a lot of people every week as I work with them to make their homes safer, but there is a common thread to conversations in relation to falls. n

n

n

I am returning home from a rehab center or hospital after a fall and now looking to stop it happening again or allow me to remain in my home while I recuperate. I have fallen in the past and think it would be a good idea to look at what I might need. It’s not for me I am fine, just something in-case we have visitors or to keep my spouse safe.

In 2013 the CDC reported 2.5 Million non-fatal falls were treated in the emergency room with 750,000 requiring hospitalization. Of the 250,000 hip fractures in the same year 95% were from falls. Falls impact quality of life, bank balance, family, overall health and in some cases longevity. So how do you reduce the risk of falling, as they always say the best defense is a good offense? Be proactive, saying you are fine even as you know yourself that it is harder to do what you used to do is moving you further into the ‘going to fall category’. Here is a list of some of the items to think about and what I look for when I visit a home.

n

n

n

n

Remove trip hazards, rugs, extension cords, clutter, small furniture, pet bowls etc… Keep walkways clear, put frequently used items in accessible places. Install handrails on stairs, entry ways both front of house, patio and garage. Is there enough light for normal use? Or should we install night lights for extra security. Add grab bars in the shower/tub, by the toilet. Non-slip mats, tape, or coatings in the shower/tub.

My aim with this article is to reduce your risk of falling, so to this end I will finish the article with a quick list of items that should never be used or relied upon as a grab bar. n

n

Towel bars, toilet tissue holders, towels on towel bars, shower doors, handheld shower glide bars, temporary soap/shampoo holders. And in its own category suction cup grab bars, they are cheap, they are convenient but when they un-suck you are typically relying on them to hold your weight.

I hope you found this article useful and remember prevention is no accident!

I Wish We Had Hospice One reoccurring comment hospices sooner receive is, “I wish we would have received hospice sooner.” So, why are families not informed about hospice earlier? It is a complicated question, but one reason lies with doctors.

Doctors are often the gatekeepers to hospice referrals because Medicare requires a doctor to certify that the patient could pass away in the next six months if the illness runs its normal course. As a result, some doctors are reluctant to refer to hospice. Interestingly, doctors often state they believe hospice helps improve the quality of life for those with a serious illness. So why are doctors hesitant to refer to hospice? There has been a recent study suggesting that doctors do not want to accept the fact that their patient will die. It also indicates that doctors have been socialized that death is a failure. Reasons doctors may struggle to make a hospice referral: n Let’s face it - doctors are humans and talking about the possible death of their patient can be very uncomfortable. It may be more comfortable ordering a procedure than to have a difficult heart to heart discussion. n Determining the right time to have the conversation about end of life wishes can be challenging. n Doctors may believe their job is to cure or to relieve a particular symptom. Some may think that referring to hospice could cause the patient to lose hope or give up.

Doctors may believe some of the frequent misconceptions about hospice. A common myth is that the doctor will have to give up their patient and hospice will withhold services from their patient. However, most hospice companies want the doctor to remain involved. n Patients often see multiple physicians. Doctors may believe that the disease they are treating is not the “life-limiting” illness so they are waiting for another physician to have the conversation. n Time – doctors treat patients in a system that discourages lengthy visits. These conversations take time. The Good news: The Care Planning Act has been introduced into legislation. If approved, this will create a new Medicare benefit called Planning Services for those with advanced illnesses. This approach will give individuals facing serious illnesses more of a voice in their care. Additionally, this bill would allow doctors to be reimbursed for time spent with their patients having these conversations. In the meantime… remember your doctor is human. If you have questions about any end of life issues don’t hesitate to begin the conversation with your physician if your physician does not initiate the conversation. n

SOUTHWEST IDAHO ADVANCED CARE HOSPITAL

What Is a Long-Term Acute A Long Term Acute Care HospiCare Hospital tal (LTACH) provides specialized medical, nursing and rehabilitation (LTACH)? services for patients who need more advanced care for their recovery process, but who no longer require services at a traditional hospital. Patients typically have a chronic or medically complex medical condition that requires hospitalization for an average of 25 days or more in a facility that offers a 24/7 specialized treatment program. “Long term” often leads people to assume that it’s similar to a long-term facility (Nursing Home), but a more accurate description of an LTACH, would be a post-acute care hospital. The main difference between a traditional hospital and an LTACH is the length of stay. Traditional hospitals are focused on caring for a patient for an average of four to five days, where initial surgical interventions and diagnostic proce-dures are performed, while a long term acute care hospital typically cares for a patient an average of 25 days. The purpose of a LTACH is to provide critical care-level services but with a stronger recovery and rehabilitative focus permitted by the longer length of stay. Patients referred to an LTACH must meet an admission criteria designated by their insurer including Medicare, Medicaid and commercial insurers. At an LTACH, patients can contin-

ue to receive intensive interventions, such as ventilator weaning, cardiac monitoring, aggressive wound management, antibiotic infusions, TPN, while being managed by a coordinated patient care team. Long term acute care hospitals offer specialized programs for patients who require ventilator-weaning, wound care, infectious disease management, or intensive management of medically complex conditions. Typical services include daily management and rounding by Hospitalists and/or Pulmonologists, telemetry, laboratory, pharmacy, radiology, respiratory therapy, rehabilitation, dialysis, and an intensive staff-to patient ratio. For those looking to understand what services and conditions may be available for treatment at an LTACH, the following are the most common: Ventilator-Weaning Respiratory Failure n Wounds n Medically Complex n Amputation n Cardiovascular Disease n COPD n CHF n Head Injury/Trauma n Infectious Diseases (including MRSA, VRE) n n

Breanna McKnight Age: 16

Breanna McKnight is a 16 year old high school student who was out for a motorcycle ride with a friend when he lost control and crashed on May 21, 2011. Breanna was found at the scene unresponsive with a traumatic brain injury and multiple facial fractures. She was brought to the hospital where she had multiple surgeries including a craniotomy for her head injuries, tracheostomy to help her breathe on the ventilator and a gastrostomy tube to get her the nourishment needed while she recovered. Breanna entered Southwest Idaho Advanced Care Hospital on May 27, 2011 in a comatose state and fully dependent on the ventilator. With aggressive treatment by the Respiratory Therapists, by June 1, Breanna weaned off the ventilator and began to breathe on her own. She participated in daily Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy. As Breanna became more awake and alert, she began moving her arms and legs, following commands and going to the therapy gym to begin her rehabilitation.

Patient Success is Our Success

On June 28, 2011, Breanna was stable enough to leave Southwest and be transferred to a local inpatient rehabilitation hospital for continued therapies. Breanna returned home with her parents and finished high school with her peers only 8 months after her accident.

respiratory therapy, and 6 day a week rehabilitation therapy. In addition, admission to an LTACH avoids using precious skilled nursing facility days granted by Medicare. Is LTACH like hospice? Hospice care is primarily for those not expected to recover and have a terminal illness. In contrast, the Long Term Acute Care Hospital is for patients who can be treated, recover and then return home or to a lower level of care.

Wow! You’ve lived in your home for 20, 30, or even 40 years. The kids are grown and gone with families of their own. Your home no longer really works for your lifestyle. It’s too big and too much work. Here are 10 suggestions on WHERE TO START.

1

Call the kids… give them a deadline to come and “get their stuff”

2 3

Ask the other relatives what they might want

Go through each unused room and take one piece of furniture out… either in the garage for the sale or to a charity of your choice

4

Buy a package of sticky dots at an office supply store (or Walmart, Target, etc)

5

Put a red dot on everything that will go with you. While you don’t know where you are going… you will probably take your living room, dining room, and master bedroom furniture

6 7 8 9

Put a BLUE dot on everything you can’t decide

Put a Green dot on everything that goes to charity or sale Put a Yellow dot on everything that goes in the trash

Buy 12 boxes at U-Haul (medium) and pack everything you don’t need for 6 months

Long-term care Insurance: Whether you’ve had a long-term care How Does It Work? insurance (LTCI) policy for years or you’re thinking of buying one, it’s critical to understand exactly what set of conditions will trigger coverage. In addition, you should know how to file a claim, preferably before you’re on the verge of needing care.

What determines if you’re entitled to benefits? LTCI policies differ on how benefits are triggered, so it’s crucial to examine your individual policy. Here are some typical ways you can become eligible for benefits: n

n

n n

n

You’re unable to perform a certain number of activities of daily living (ADLs) without assistance, such as eating, bathing, dressing, continence, toileting (moving on and off the toilet), and transferring (moving in and out of bed). Look in your policy to see what ADLs are included, the number you must be unable to perform, and how your policy defines “unable to perform” for each ADL, as criteria can vary from one company to another. Your doctor has ordered specific care. Your care is medically necessary. Your mental or cognitive function is impaired. You’ve had a prior hospitalization of at least three days.

An LTCI policy may contain one or more of these provisions. The more specific the language in

the provision, the less room for disagreements about coverage. Who determines if you’re entitled to benefits? Just as important as what triggers benefits is the question of who decides if you’ve triggered them. These gatekeepers are an integral part of any LTCI policy--after all, they’re the ones whom insurance companies rely on before paying out claims. In some cases, a policy may have more than one gatekeeper. The best policies let you qualify for benefits if your own doctor orders specific care, rather than require that you be examined by an insurance company physician. Make sure you know who the ultimate decision maker is under your policy. When will benefits start? Most LTCI policies have a waiting period, commonly known as an elimination period, before you can start receiving benefits after you’re judged medically eligible. Common waiting periods are 20, 30, 60, 90, or 100 days. During any waiting period, you’re responsible for paying for your care, whether it’s in a nursing home, an assisted-living facility, or in your home. generally speaking, the longer the waiting period, the less expensive the policy. Keep in mind that the calculation of the waiting period can vary from

The mechanics of filing a claim Ideally, you should know how to file a claim before you actually need benefits--you don’t want to lose coverage on a technicality. Typically, filing a claim means submitting a written notice to the insurance company, along with a proof-of-loss form and relevant med-

ical records. Follow the instructions in your policy carefully. If you don’t, your insurance company can deny you benefits, in which case your only recourse will be to make a complaint with your state insurance department or file a lawsuit. Don’t let all those premium payments go to waste--take the time now to understand the claims-filing process for your policy.

It’s easier to stay well than to get well. You know this, and so does Medicare, so they cover 17 types of preventive and wellness services – most for no deductible or copay – to help you maintain and manage your health. How it works Effective health management starts with a clear understanding of one’s current health, and a plan to maintain or improve it. Medicare offers a one-time Welcome to Medicare visit and yearly Annual Wellness visits, at no charge to you, so you and your doctor have the information needed to develop and maintain a personal health and wellness plan. The results of the visits are used to create and update a personal five-to-ten year prevention schedule based on your risk factors and health. Your healthcare provider then refers you for tests, screenings and treatment programs based on needs identified during the visit and your preventive schedule. Look for the Blue Apples Explanations and a tracking chart for preventive and wellness benefits

Blue Cross of Idaho

A New Health Plan Assists Idahoans Enrolled in Medicare and Medicaid am is a very nice gentleman that lives alone, never asks for help and does not want to be a bother to anyone. Sam has some health issues and he is a “Dual Eligible”. This means he is eligible for both Medicare and Idaho Medicaid. Sam was recently diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy. A couple of months ago, Sam heard about a new health plan called True Blue and he signed up. True Blue is a Special Needs Plan that is managed by Blue Cross of Idaho through a contract with the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare. As part of the True Blue Program, all Medicare and Medicaid services are covered and paid for through one place. Each member receives a Care Manager to help them access the services they need. Sam’s Care Manager met with him and learned that he was taking the bus to all of his Chemotherapy appointments. Feeling weak and fatigued after his appointment, he still would get on the bus and travel home. The Care Manager talked to Sam and told him that he could get a ride to his Chemotherapy sessions and that it was a covered benefit under Medicaid and that she would help him schedule his first ride. Sam was very happy that he was able to have a ride, get picked up and go right home after his session. Sometimes it is the little things that make the difference to people. Are you on Medicare and Medicaid, or do you know someone who is? Do you/they find it difficult to keep track of which programs pay for certain services? Do you wonder who to call with questions? If so, Blue Cross of Idaho’s True Blue Program may be the answer. True Blue provides a care manager who can answer your questions and help you get the services you need. This program also offers medical, mental health, home and community based services, long-term care, dental and vision coverage. True Blue is available in most Idaho counties. Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries wishing to enroll need to be at least 21 years of age and live in the True Blue service area.

The National Senior games are the culmination of over 700 participants with qualifying events held in several cities across the nation. One member of the gold medal winning team is Vivian Klein. Vivian was born in Indianapolis September 26, 1932. She graduated from Clarkston Washington high school. Married to Herbert Klein and lived in France, during his time in the u.S. Army. She and her family have lived in Boise since 1955. She has 5 children, 4 living, all in the Treasure Valley, 4 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild. Vivian lost her husband in 1981 and shortly after embarked

on a career in the political arena as an attaché in the Idaho legislature, then a lobbyist and executive director of a professional association. After a stint in the Idaho attorney general’s office, she later retired as chief of staff for the Idaho senate minority leaders. Vivian is well liked and respected by many people on both sides of the isle. Vivian took up tennis at the age of 40, under the encouragement of her friend and colleague Barbara Chandler, and she immediately fell in love with the sport. She loved the competitive nature of the sport. “It is truly a lifetime sport that can be picked up at any age and played for many years”. Viv has been playing for 43 years now and still going strong.

One message I have is, “Don’t give up, sometimes the aches and

pains get the best of you, but keep moving!...Many tennis players have artificial hips, and knees and still play a nice competitive game.” My second message is to seniors and to the youth alike.” Get involved and Stay involved in your community. Pay attention to what is going on, volunteer, that is a big part of giving back in the community that we are all a part of. Lotus Dibelius was born in Neenah Wisconsin on February 1, 1933.

MorningStar—Called to Serve by Lesley Jacobson “The constant care and compassion at MorningStar is truly remarkable.” (FaMiLy MeMber) Here, under our roof, we celebrate legacies and heroes. For MorningStar Senior Living is built upon the manifest truth that seniors – the wisest and most experienced among us – deserve the highest respect and regard. This is MorningStar’s chosen calling, begun in 2003 when Ken Jaeger resolved to create his own brand of senior living. Out of his convictions, Ken established three precepts for MorningStar: honor God; value all seniors; and invest generously in his team. Boise Executive Director Janine Sawaya affirms, “In my 44-year career, I’ve had only two jobs I loved where I couldn’t wait to get to work. MorningStar is one such place, all because it’s living out its mission. Here we make decisions by which the community becomes a true home in which residents can be proud. “And this team I have,” muses Janine, “They’re young and energetic, convinced ours is the best community in the Valley. With motivated, creative staff like that, all day long at MorningStar it’s: ‘Yes’ is the answer; Now, what’s the question?” “Move before you have to, so you can take part in the busy, constructive life we have. No one will be lonesome here.” (reSideNT) love Knows no Bounds MorningStar’s mission to love and honor others stretches beyond its senior living communities—and into the world. We are committed to also investing our time and talents in local charitable projects (like The Linus Project). In this, Ken takes a decided lead for he is passionate about helping the poor in Third World countries. Years ago, in tiny Puerto Cabezas, Nicaragua, he found a tin-roofed warehouse for abandoned and orphaned children. This most humble place draws him back three times a year, together with hundreds of volunteers, to build orphanages, feeding centers and relationships. For truly, love knows no bounds.

the Idaho Home choice Idaho Medicaid received the Program (IHc) Money Follows the Person grant in 2011 to help Idaho rebalance long-term care spending from institutions to home and community-based services (HCBS).

This program, also called The Idaho Home Choice Program (IHC), helps transition individuals from an institution (skilled nursing facility, intermediate care facilities, or institutions for mental diseases) to community living in an apartment, private home, or a certified family home. The IHC will increase outreach to individuals in institutions and decrease barriers to transition. The goals of the program are to: n Increase the use of HCBS and reduce the use of institutionally-based services. n Eliminate barriers in state law, state Medicaid plans, or state budgets that restrict the flexible use of Medicaid funds to enable individuals to receive long-term care in the settings of their choice. n Strengthen the ability of Medicaid programs to ensure continued provision of HCBS to those individuals who choose to transition from institutions. n Ensure that procedures are in place to provide quality assurance and continuous quality improvement of HCBS.

Eligible persons must: n Be a resident of Idaho n Currently live in a nursing facility, ICF/ID, or an Institution for Mental Disease n Have lived in the above settings for at least 90 consecutive days, excluding short term rehabilitation stays n Have been eligible for Medicaid for at least one day n Qualify for one of the HCBS waivers (Aged and Disabled Waiver or Developmental Disability waiver), or qualify for Medicaid State Plan Services n Move to a “qualified residence” in the community. Participants will be eligible to receive Medicaid Waiver or State Plan benefits, up to 72 hours of Transition Management from a Certified Transition Manager and up to $2,000 of one-time Transition Services money for expenditures that are deemed necessary for the participant to live safely in the community.

When Drugs Deplete nutrients Medications can be life saving. But take heed: They can also rob your body of nutrients you need. Nutrient loss can happen in many ways. For example, a medication may: n

n

n

n

Depress your appetite, which means you may not eat enough to stay nourished. Increase your desire for less healthy foods, such as lots of sugar, bread, or pasta. Reduce absorption of certain nutrients in the “gut,” especially in seniors. Block a nutrient’s effects at the level of the cell. Increase loss of nutrients through your urinary system.1

Symptoms of nutrient loss may come on gradually and look a lot like symptoms of aging, disease, or changes in mood—so it’s easy to get caught off guard. For example, pain, numbness, or tingling in legs may be a vitamin B12 deficiency. Or a magnesium deficiency may cause muscle pain and stiffness. Over time, this deficiency may even contribute to bone disease (osteoporosis).2 Which drugs are the most common culprits? Here’s a brief summary for you. acid blockers. If you have heartburn, reflux, or peptic ulcers, your doctor may prescribe an antacid, H2 blocker, or proton-pump inhibitor (PPI). Studies show these drugs may cause many nutrient deficiencies. They can interfere with the

breakdown of food or absorption of nutrients. You may lack B12, calcium, vitamin D, folic acid, chromium, iron, zinc, and phosphorus. antibiotics. These drugs are big robbers of a wide range of nutrients. They also kill “good” bacteria in your digestive system. For these reasons, it may be a good idea to take a B vitamin complex or a multivitamin that contains B vitamins—as well as magnesium, calcium, and potassium. You might also consider probiotics and vitamin K—normally made by those “friendly” bacteria. anti-convulsants. Seizure medication can cause low levels of vitamin D. anti-hypertensives. Diuretics are great at helping to prevent heart attacks in high-risk people. But they may deplete magnesium, sodium, potassium, zinc, pyridoxine, thiamine, and ascorbic acid. Beta blockers also are great at lowering blood pressure. However, they can deplete CoQ10. This can be very dangerous. The heart needs a rich supply of this nutrient for the energy “factories” of its cells. Cholesterol-lowering drugs. When it comes to high cholesterol, statins are practically a household name. That’s because doctors widely prescribe them. But statins also deplete CoQ10—which is serious. Hypoglycemics (oral). Drugs like metformin help make insulin work better in people with diabetes. But they can reduce levels of B12 by half. They also can deplete folic acid and CoQ10.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT). Used for menopausal symptoms, HRT may deplete vitamins B6 and B12, folic acid, and magnesium—critical for not only heart health but also mood. Still moody on HRT? A supplement might make more sense than an antidepressant. Nearly 50 percent of Americans regularly takes a prescription drug.

Alzheimer’s Association “I’ve Been Diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, early-stage. What should I do next?” “Early-Stage” refers to people, of any age, who are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and are in the beginning stages of the disease. In this stage they retain the ability to participate in daily activities and in a give-and-take dialogue. This includes those persons with “younger-onset” who develop dementia under age 65 and are still in the early stages of the disease. The Alzheimer’s Association, Greater Idaho Chapter, recognizes the unique needs of persons diagnosed with the disease and their caregivers. The following resources are available to help people navigate through the many thoughts, emotions and questions about memory loss and dementia. Early-Stage Support Groups Support groups for people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and their care partners are offered locally. These two hour meetings offer education for one hour and one hour of support group sharing for both the diagnosed person and their care partner. 24/7 Helpline 800.272.3900 Information specialists and masters-level counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One-onone assistance is offered to enable individuals to better understand the disease, manage care and make more

informed decisions regarding services and treatments. Education Classes Free local classes and online seminars are provided to help people living with the disease, family and friends increase understanding of memory loss, communication, changes in behavior and making legal and financial plans. Medical professionals, employers and facility caregiver staff are also welcome. Caregiver Support Groups Caregiver support groups are facilitated on various days and times each month. These meetings are open to anyone who wishes to give and get support with the challenges of caregiving for family or friends. alZConnected This online social networking community is designed for anyone impacted by Alzheimer’s disease. It provides a safe place for people to connect with others in similar situations 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at no charge.

In 1968, four volunteers founded AARP Foundation Tax-Aide, eventually becoming the nation’s largest, free, volunteer-run tax assistance and preparation program. In 1979, AARP Driver Safety launched a program to help keep older drivers independent, safe and confident while on the road. Today it is the country’s largest driving refresher course designed for drivers age 50 and older. Almost 46 years later, these valuable programs are as important now as they were then and are having a direct impact in Idaho. Per capita, Idaho has one of the most successful Tax-Aide programs in the country. Last year alone, nearly 300 volunteers across the state filed more than 19,000 returns with refunds totaling $19,700,000. With your help, we will do even more next year. TaxAide has more than 60 tax preparation sites in the Gem State offering free services to anyone, any age, AARP member or not. The volunteer opportunities are endless so whether you are good with numbers or good with people (or both) there is a place for you. AARP Driver Safety offerings

include a classroom course, administered by a nationwide network of more than 4,000 volunteers, and an online course, available in both English and Spanish. The classroom course takes place at various host sites throughout Idaho, including libraries, hospitals, senior centers,

Also available are CarFit, an educational program designed to help older drivers find out how well their vehicles “fit” them, and We Need to Talk, an interactive online seminar that provides practical tips and advice on how to recognize when it’s time to limit or stop driving and how to discuss the topic with loved ones.

Respite spells ReLIeF for As a caregiver, you are doing Family caregivers everything in your power to make sure your loved one is well cared for, and you’re probably feeling the strain of your efforts: increased frustration, shortened fuse, poor sleep, exhaustion, feeling overwhelmed, high blood-pressure, etc. “Respite” can help you bring your life back into balance.

Respite is a temporary break from your caregiving responsibilities. Respite can take place in your home or in a facility. Respite can be provided by a family member, friend, paid provider, or volunteer. Friends in Action, a nonprofit dedicated to helping family caregivers, recruits and trains volunteers as part of their Legacy Corps program to provide “companionship respite” for veterans and military families. Legacy Corps volunteers commit to one full year of service (Nov – Oct) and deliver compassionate, consistent support to caregivers on a weekly basis, allowing stressed out wives, husbands, daughters, sons, neighbors, and friends to rest and recharge. Entering the 4th year in Idaho, Legacy Corps volunteers have provided a total of 14,000 hours of relief to 191 family caregivers in the gem State – a value of over $250,000. The Idaho Caregiver Alliance (ICA) is another organization focused on providing access to respite for caregivers across the lifespan. The ICA was formed with grant funding from National Lifespan Respite Coalition and is making great strides to ensure

that family caregivers in Idaho have the tools and resources they need – starting with respite. In 2015 the ICA successfully worked with state law makers to pass House Concurrent Resolution 24 which officially recognizes family caregivers as an integral part of our health system. The ICA is also testing the implementation of an Emergency Respite Program designed to offer support to caregivers when unplanned events or emergencies occur. To learn more about the Emergency Respite program please visit the Idaho Federation of Families for Children’s Mental Health website (www.idahofederation.org) or call (208) 433-8845. You can learn more about respite, caregiver resources, the Legacy Corps program, and the Idaho Caregiver Alliance at the 5th annual Family Caregiver Conference on February 20, 2016. The Annual Family Caregiver Conference is a partnership with Boise State university to provide caregivers of adults and children with disabilities the resources they need to provide good care for their loved one while taking good care of themselves too. For information on respite, or to learn how you can become a Legacy Corps volunteer and be a hero to a family caregiver, contact Friends in Action at (208) 333-1363.

Both of these programs provide energy efficiency improvements to customer’s electrically-heated homes, apartments and manufactured homes so less energy is used and homes stay more comfortable. If you own or rent your home, you may be eligible to participate for free. The primary difference between these two programs is the amount of a customer’s annual household income.

Vivian Klein & Lotus Dibelius continued from page 63 They had 5 children, 3 are living. Lotus is the grandmother of 9, and the great grandmother of 7. The family moved to Reno Nevada at the age of 29. Lotus wanted her children to get involved in sports and meet new friends; she found a tennis program where the children became active. She too started taking lessons, and then joined a league and started having success playing in tournaments. She enjoyed the fact that her entire family participated in the sport of tennis. She and her husband played in several tournaments throughout the years and in many states. One of her favorite memories from her early days of tennis was when her son Kevin was 14 and he and Lotus entered a tournament where the winner earned a trip to New York City, and got to play on the back courts of the uS Open, complete with a banquet at the Waldorf Astoria. They were very excited to win this mother/son competition. Kevin later attended college on a tennis scholarship. She is very proud that all of her children and grandchildren are talented athletes and remain active in tennis. When Lotus and Ron moved to Idaho, they meandered down to the local park and found a group of ladies playing tennis. The group became fast friends and soon after she was again playing singles,

doubles, and mixed games several times a week. Lotus has competed in the Idaho Senior games, a qualifier for the National Senior games, several times, and in addition to her tennis success, she also ran track at the games in years past. In 1991 she held the record that year for the 100 yard dash for the time of 17.10 seconds. In an effort to stay fit, Lotus eats healthy and exercises every day; gets a weekly massage, and stays active doing yard work, cooking, and sewing BSu slippers for “fans” and family. What message would you like our seniors to take from this feature? Stay Active! At 82 years old, she plays and competes with women her childrens age. I don’t know what I would do if I didn’t have tennis. Find something you love and get involved in it. She enjoys the comradery in sports, and is still a team captain of an over of 65 plus team, and they are on their way to sectionals in Boise, playing teams from Colorado and the nationals in Sun City AZ, 2016. Editor’s Note: This Senior Spotlight was submitted by Linda Payne Smith, Vice President, Saint Alphonsus Health system. “Vivian and Lotus are nothing short of amazing! They are an inspiration to all and a true role model for how we can all live our lives and enjoy “healthy aging” to the fullest!”

hospital 300 miles away. A senior citizen needs to travel to medical treatment not available at home.

A father, separated from his family during a disaster, wants desperately to be reunited. A domestic violence survivor longs to start a new life in another city, but cannot afford to leave. A young burn survivor wants to attend a special camp for other kids who understand her emotions. They can get there when there’s an angel in the cockpit. For those whose lives are in turmoil, the financial, physical, and emotional burdens of travel can make ordinary trips difficult. That’s when they turn to Angel Flight West, a network of 1,200 volunteer pilots who fly their own planes and pay for all costs (which average from hundreds of dollars to thousands of dollars per flight) out of their own pockets. Angel Flight West pilots fly more than 3,500 of those every year These pilots who give so much of their time and money to help strangers, come from all walks of life. But as different as these men and women are, they all have two things in common: The love of flying, and the desire to touch people’s lives. Not only have they earned the gratitude of their passengers, they’ve earned the trust and respect of a long list of organizations of all types.

Seventy one year old Larry G. needs to travel from his home to a major medical facility for treatment of his cancer. 120 miles away – but several hours of driving in traffic, Larry isn’t strong enough to make the drive. As pilot Tom Close noted about this particular flight “The events around Larry and this flight are indeed emblematic of Angel Flight West. AFW puts in touch those in need, and those of us with the luxury of giving back, using the opportunities and capabilities in our lives where they can have the biggest impact.” The passengers and their families, the healthcare organizations – pay nothing at all, ever.

be a very long course of illness.

It is the only one of the ten top causes of death in America with no treatment, prevention or cure. It robs the person living with the disease of their memories and basic social skills, which can leave the caregiver feeling isolated even from the person they care for daily. In addition, studies have shown that caring for someone with Alzheimer’s can impact the caregiver’s health and cognitive function. To help address the unique challenges of Alzheimer’s and dementia caregivers, the nonprofit ClergyAgainstAlzheimer’s has produced a book of meditations, Seasons of Caring – available at www.seasonsofcaring.org where you can read excerpts of the book free of charge. Grouped by seasons of the year, the book’s interfaith meditations offer spiritual support and motivational insights to comfort and encourage caregivers. Edited by Dr. Daniel C. Potts, Seasons of Caring features watercolors by his father, Lester, who began painting after being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Dr. Potts writes, “Alzheimer’s and other dementias are no respecters of persons. In this cold, dark reality, how do we share the warm hope of spring? We share our stories of having been there before, of having found faith’s fire in our

own cold reality.” Another resource is the USAgainstAlzheimer’s Facebook Caregivers’ Community for those with Alzheimer’s, their family members and friends. Members share information and questions about caregiving and Alzheimer’s/dementia, share family updates and the stresses of caregiving, and provide advice, understanding and comfort to others. The group’s moderators have each been Alzheimer’s caregivers and maintain a warm, safe and supportive environment, offering advice from their personal experiences. The closed community is at https://www.facebook.com/groups/usagainstalz/. Finally, please join USAgainst Alzheimer’s in demanding action to stop Alzheimer’s by going to www. usagainstalzheimers.org and adding your name. I hope these resources will bring you new insights, comfort, courage and inspiration. Caregivers—particularly for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia—inspire us all.

Inactivity Kills Physical inactivity is responsible for more than twice as many deaths as obesity.

n n n n

A recent study of both men and women over a 12 year period of time clearly determined that inactivity does indeed lead to an untimely death. Increasing your activity level to 20 minutes a day of brisk walking is enough to significantly reduce your risk of death. This was true in those who were obese and normal weight as indicated in the study. Other recent research indicates that sitting for more than two hours at a time can significantly lessen your life span. Even if you regularly exercise, sitting for more than two hours a day will still lower your life span. Frequent movement throughout the entire day is critical for your health. Research is clear on the topic of activity. We are designed to be mobile. Regular activity has been clearly shown to: n Reduce the risk of diabetes.

 educe the risk of heart disease. R Prevent Alzheimer’s disease. Improve bone density. Increase and maintain muscle strength, which is strongly correlated to independence in your environment and reducing the risk of falling. n Improve and maintain balance, which is critical to reducing the risk of falling. n M  aintain proper hormone levels. n Reduce stress. n Increase feelings of wellbeing. n Reduce pain levels.

Private Duty Home Care HOME CARE – We understand that budget is a primary consideration when you are making arrangements for home care, and it is our expectation that you will “shop around” to find the best provider at a manageable cost. As you do, please consider the following point in orders to ensure that you and your loved ones are protected and receive the best care possible.

1

DO YOUR HOMEWORK Before you make your first phone call, thoroughly consider what your care needs are. Make sure to paint a realistic picture of the patient’s needs so that the right caregiver match can be made: n

n

n

n

n

Do you need a companion, or someone who can provide handson care (i.e. assisting getting in/ out of bath, etc.)

n

n

Do you need a caregiver who can drive you to social events appointments or?

Do you need a caregiver that speaks a particular language or is versed in sign language?

2

INTERVIEW THE AGENCY In order to protect yourself and your loved ones from potential liability, be sure to ask about and consider the following when selecting a home care agency: n

n

n

Do you need assistance with cooking and light housework? Do you need skilled medical assistance for things like blood pressure & blood sugar testing, medication administration, wound care or tube/drain/bag maintenance?

Do you need a caregiver trained in a specialization such as hospice care or mobility needs?

n

n

n

Is a memory loss diagnosis (i.e. Alzheimer’s, dementia) a factor or is the patient becoming confused?

120 BOISE AND THE TREASURE VALLEY – OCTOBER 2015 - MARCH 2016

What levels of care are available? Are you licensed for medical care or only companion care services? Are your caregivers supervised by an RN? Who conducts the initial assessment before starting each case? Are all caregivers employees that are licensed, bonded, and insured? What happens if a worker is injured in my home? Do you take care of paying the taxes and withholdings for the caregiver? If there is a personality conflict or other problem with a worker, can a change be made? How is this handled? How much notice will you give me if a caregiver is leaving or will be unavailable for an extended period of time?

What happens if a caregiver calls out sick or has an emergency? Will you send another caregiver of

n

Before a new caregiver starts, write out a basic daily and weekly schedule for the patient. Be sure to include a list of likes and dislikes with respect to both foods and activities. This will make the transition much easier and less stressful for the patient, and will allow the caregiver to get up to speed quickly.

n

Remember that you are the customer – do not hesitate to express your needs and give feedback, especially if you are dissatisfied or worried. The matching of a caregiver to a patient is as much and art as a science, and clear, constructive feedback will help everyone settle in quickly.

n

equal skill and experience? Can I interview the caregiver(s) before I commit to using your agency? Do you check references, and can I get details of the caregivers experience and background? Can I get someone that has worked on similar cases / patients?

n

What happens in case of an emergency? Can your caregiver provide hands-on help (i.e. lifting, CPR, etc.) or do they need to wait for emergency services?

n

Helpful hints The following are a few suggestions on ways to make the process of obtaining quality home healthcare a little easier and eliminate the unwanted surprises:

HEALTH AT HOME - NON MEDICAL HOME CARE

What are your rates? Is there a minimum # of hours that I have to commit to each day/week/month?

n

A note on 24-hour care; Live-in caregivers are often more convenient and cost-effective than utilizing multiple workers in 12hour shifts. However, live-ins do require some time off and private space for meals, sleeping, and grooming, while 12-hour workers generally do not sleep while on duty. Therefore, if the patient requires lots of attention during the night, 12-hour shifts or an additional overnight caregiver may be the right solution. Live-in caregivers do need to sleep sometime in order to provide quality care!

HOSPICE CARE

HOSPICE CARE

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 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.

134 BOISE AND THE TREASURE VALLEY – OCTOBER 2015 - MARCH 2016


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.

that requires a constant presence by a nurse or care team.

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 this to their patients. 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. Continued on page 148 Indicates website link on seniorsbluebook.com 135


HOSPICE CARE

HOSPICE CARE

Planning for End of Life Care People rarely plan end of life care, but the funny thing is if you ask almost anyone how he or she wants to die they can tell you. Most answers are pretty close to each other too. The themes include pain free, at home, and surrounded by those who are loved. It makes sense really. I mean, outside of being a Klingon very few want to die in battle. Most people do not want to die in pain, or alone….or afraid. So if it takes three months of planning to go to Oregon for a week, why as a culture do we think we can avoid planning what is arguably going to be our last memorable event? Perhaps the answer lies in the misconception that suffering is unavoidable. Perhaps it’s because planning for a trip to the beach is a heck of a lot more fun than planning our individual last hurrah. This is where working in hospice comes in handy. I’ve seen such excellent examples of how to live. The best examples of a life well lived I have observed from those I have met in hospice. See – that’s what most people misunderstand. Hospice isn’t really about dying. From an existential standpoint we are all dying, our mortal time here ebbing away one minute at a time. Hospice is for people who are rounding third base

and heading home…..and want to have the ability to live life up to the very minute they can’t anymore. Hospice has come to be synonymous with death, but that is where we as Americans got the message wrong. That’s like saying you’re going to the movies to see the credits roll. While the credits are how all movies end, that’s not why you pay for the ticket. A good hospice takes care of a person’s symptoms, alleviates suffering, and provides options so that each person can be self determined and enjoy each day while there are still days to enjoy. A great hospice will help you enjoy those days. I for one know what I will be looking for when the time approaches for me to make that decision. I want to go places – I hate sitting at home. I too will want to be in my home with my family and my dog. I want fried food. If anyone tries to spoon feed me low sodium, low fat anything I pledge to haunt them. I want to laugh. I want the ability to be who I am until I’m not anymore. Think about it. No really, take a moment…What do you want?

HOSPICE CARE

Understanding Hospice Those things which we do not understand are most often the things that cause the most stress. In school for example, some students dread the walk to their algebra class. A feeling of stress and imminent doom overwhelm them as they ponder the question, “what does X really equal anyway?” Whereas for some, Algebra comes easy and stress is not a part of their journey to mathematical wizardry. The difference – the level of knowledge and understanding. Much more significant than algebraic equations, are issues related to health. What treatments are needed? How will I pay for my care? Who will take care of me? Will it hurt? Will I be alone? You aren’t expected to understand everything; no one does. However when it comes to your health understanding is crucial. Hospice is a specialized form of health care which functions through an interdisciplinary team of experts who do understand all of the unique needs of end-of-life care. With social workers, chaplains, physicians, nurses, physical therapists and more; a hospice team is built specifically to meet all of the needs of both the patient and their family. When it comes to understanding, hospice is one of the least understood aspects of health care. So many people avoid the “hospice

conversation” until it is too late. Hospice is not a place to die or even a way to die. Hospice is a way for you to choose to live your final days. According to recent research, seventy percent of all people would prefer to spend their final days in their own home; however, in reality only around thirty percent of patients actually do. Making the choice to elect your hospice benefit is not making a choice to give up. Choosing hospice is choosing how you will define your life. Live your life without fear as your hospice team works to meet every need that you and your loved ones have during this critical time. Your final months should be spent living your dreams, not visiting doctors. Life is all about the choices you make. When it comes to your health it is important that you make the best choice possible. Hospice empowers you with the opportunity of spending quality time the way you choose, in the place you decide. No matter what you may be facing, take control of your health and find a redefined hope for a better quality of life.

Hospice Care Definitions continued from page 135 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.

(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 back to HUD in repayment of the subsidy.

SENIOR HOUSING

Planning for the Planning for retirement is a Golden Years common goal for most of us as we approach that time in our lives.

Some of us plan for these Golden Years from the moment we enter the work force. Unfortunately, planning for the actual aging process is less talked about and even less planned for, despite the many resources available to seniors and their families. It is difficult to imagine and plan for potential declining health and debilitating illnesses when someone is healthy and active today. The aging process affects everyone in different ways. Most of us can see and feel a slow decline in our health as the hundreds of simple, daily activities become much more difficult to accomplish. Many seniors plan on ‘aging in place’ and living in their own homes until they pass on. Yet, this may not always be possible due to declining health or sudden health events that require alternative living arrangements. Many seniors and their families do not know which direction to turn when looking for alternative senior living options. In search of answers, guidance and relief, most of us may feel as if we are traveling alone down a rocky path. This is where a trusted senior living advisor can provide a FREE service to

educate and inform us about all the senior living options that are available in the Treasure Valley. A senior living advisor can take the confusion and mystery out of terms such as, “assisted living communities,” “skilled nursing facilities,” “residential care homes,” “memory care,” “independent living” and “retirement communities.” Senior living advisors can reduce the time and stress on seniors and their families when searching for these many alternative living options throughout the Treasure Valley. Senior living advisors provide a “hands on” approach when working with seniors and their loved ones by developing an individualized plan, taking into account their health care needs, geographical preferences and financial considerations. Senior living advisors schedule community tours and join seniors and their families on these visits. Every senior and situation is unique, a senior living advisor will work diligently to find the ‘perfect fit’ that best suits each senior’s lifestyle.

MEMORY CARE ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITIES

SENIOR HOUSING DEFINITIONS

Selecting Professional Help for Selecting professional help for a a Loved One with loved one with dementia is a weighty responsibility. With so many Dementia choices available, how does one begin to sort the options and make a good decision?

Understanding how a person living with dementia experiences the world and knowing the right questions to ask are key. The following may be helpful as you begin to consider your choices: People with dementia are easily over-stimulated. Too much noise, too many hallways, too many people and cluttered environments can be very frustrating for a person struggling to cognitively make sense of it all. When visiting a memory care community, consider where the secure doors are placed, where activities occur, how easy it is to find your way around, whether it feels crowded and how noisy the environment is. If secure doors open into an area where residents frequently spend time, watching people coming and going might cue them that it is time to leave. This, coupled with the noise and stimulation of people entering and exiting, is enough

to cause significant frustration for many people with dementia. Similarly, doing activities in an area with too many other things going on can over-stimulate residents. Having a separate area for activities away from other noise and stimulation is very helpful both in terms of making it easier for residents to concentrate and enjoy the activity and in giving them a place they can leave if they dislike the activity for some reason. When looking at memory care communities, the following questions are also helpful: How long has the administrator worked at the facility? How often is he or she in the building each week? How often is the facility nurse in the building and what kind of oversight does he or she provide? What is the ratio of caregivers to residents? How are meals, housekeeping, laundry and activities provided? What type of activities are offered to the residents and how often are they available?

from actual costs)? Does the facility accept Medicaid if paying privately is not an option? Under what conditions? While the foregoing is not an exhaustive list of things to consider, asking the questions and making careful observations will prompt the kind of discussion that will allow you to more fully understand how communities vary. There is no one-sizefits-all approach, so asking good questions will help you feel more confident that your decision is right for your loved one. Editor’s Note: This article was written by Eric Collett, Executive Director, Emerson House at Riverpointe. See ad below.

MEMORY CARE ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITIES

Is there a strong sense of routine to the environment every day or are the weekends significantly different? What conditions would prompt the facility to ask a resident to leave? Is the community staffed and appropriately trained to handle two-person and mechanical lift transfers, specialized diets, total incontinence and other late-stage dementia needs or would a resident have to move due to increased care needs? What interventions do the staff use to avoid unnecessary reliance on psychotropic medications? What systems are in place to prevent wandering away from the community? What does it cost to actually live in the facility (base rates may vary significantly

SKILLED NURSING FACILITIES

SKILLED NURSING FACIITIES

Navigating the Search for Skilled Most people know what nursing Nursing Facilities is, but do you know what it means when nursing is “skilled?” Skilled nursing is defined as a type of care given by a clinical team of nurses and therapists who provide patients with a comprehensive plan to assist with day-to-day activities. These care centers, often called skilled nursing facilities, observe patients who are unable to engage in routine activities independently. Skilled nursing programs typically involve physical, occupational and speech therapies, and specialty services such as wound care. Who needs skilled nursing? Individuals who need skilled nursing often require the following assistance: n Eating, bathing and dressing oneself n Walking and transferring from sitting to standing n Recovery after a surgery or illness Home Care or Skilled Care? While the decision to choose a skilled nursing facility or home care is personal and depends on a variety of factors, in the hands of clinical professionals in a care center setting has advantages worth considering. n Amenities, such as dining, cable television, room service and laundry care are among the many features in place help patients feel more at home. n Fine dining can be found at various upscale skilled nursing

centers, and many allow patients to modify their menus for personal preferences, dietary restrictions and medical needs. Activity programs can help guests stay engaged and entertained. From board games to bake sales, book clubs and barbecues, skilled nursing centers find creative ways to lift the mood and keep patients happy during their stay. State-of-the-art therapy programs use innovative technology to help patients improve various areas of their health. 24-hour nursing provides the clinical security patients and their families need around the clock. Private rooms are available at select facilities for patients who prefer privacy, while semi-private rooms can be convenient for those who are comfortable sharing the company of others.

While receiving care in the comfort of one’s home can be a convenient option for some, choosing a skilled nursing facility can help alleviate the obligations of being at home while receiving compassionate care that feels just the same. 3 Skilled Care Considerations Selecting a skilled nursing facility is a decision one shouldn’t take lightly. So most wise patients and their families shop around for a center that meets their needs, both clinically and comfortably. When

healthcare organization. Is the management and staff available? Your tour will likely be given by an admissions director or associate. Ask as many questions as necessary during your tour and take time to speak with other staff, including the housekeeping, dietary and the administration. This will help you gauge the friendliness and accessibility of the staff, pointing you to the facility that best suits your skilled nursing needs.

taking a tour, review the following to find the facility that fits the bill. n D  oes it pass your five senses? For example, does your environment smell clean and pleasant? Does the food satisfy your taste? Is a well-maintained building, landscaping and décor in sight? Is the air conditioning and humidity comfortable and is everything you touch clean? Do you hear happy patients, guests, family members and staff? n I s it prestigious? Many facilities will claim to be the best. But it’s best to seek out care centers that proudly wear seals of approval in clinical excellence. For example, facilities accredited by the Joint Commission are ideal as they routinely embody rigorous, patient-centered standards set by the national, nonprofit
