The Alzheimer’s Association’s 2018 Facts & Figures Report Reveals Increases in Alzheimer’s Prevalence and Costs of Care

W

ith each passing year, new data continues to prove that Alzheimer’s disease is a growing epidemic. Significant increases in costs and incidence, including care costs for individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other dementias surpassing a quarter of a trillion dollars have been reported in the Alzheimer’s Association 2018 Alzheimer’s Disease Facts and Figures report. However, this year’s report goes beyond the statistics with a special report on the financial and personal benefits of early diagnosis, addressing prevalence, mortality and morbidity, caregiving and what the disease could mean to our health care system if left unchecked. As the number of older Americans grows rapidly, so does the number of people living with Alzheimer’s and the impact to the nation’s economy. An estimated 5.7 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s with an expected increase to 7.1 million people by 2025. “There are

If you have a family member planning to transition into a new residence or retirement community setting, it is a perfect time to begin the downsizing process. Moving out of one’s current home can be an overwhelming and stressful process, no matter how long you’ve lived there. It’s best to start early and give your loved one plenty of time to make important decisions. The following tips and suggestions are designed to make this difficult transition easier for everyone involved. SAFETY FIRST. Start by clearing the clutter on steps to prevent accidents and falls. If the clutter in question poses a direct risk to the health and safety of your family member, it might be time to talk with them about the dangers of hoarding. PLAN ACCORDING TO THE MOVE. If your loved one is relocating from a four-bedroom house to a two-bedroom apartment, consider his or her new lifestyle. KEEP IT SIMPLE. START SMALL. Going through a lifetime’s worth of belongings is no small task. Break the process up into easily managed increments. ENLIST FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS TO HELP. Help can go a long way in making

every move more manageable. Your loved one might like to take this opportunity to bequeath treasured belongings to children, grandchildren, friends, etc. SELL, DONATE OR DISCARD. Minimizing items can significantly reduce moving costs. Identify essential items then break up the remaining possessions into 3 categories. FOCUS ON THE 3 P’S. Paperwork: Carefully sort through all financial documents, letters and cards. Retain and discard any non-essential documents. Shred documents with personal information, account IDs and social security numbers.

7 Helpful Tips for Downsizing Seniors’ Homes

Pills: According to the U.S. FDA, almost all medicines can be thrown away in the household trash.

If you believe that a loved one is hoarding, there are resources available to help. Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Karla Casertano, Realtor, SRES, RRS – RE/ MAX Select Real Estate.

First Rule of Medicine – DO NO HARM Every year, more than 8.6 million adverse drug events are reported in the US. 2.2 million of them are Severe. When seeing a doctor for a certain health condition or concern, you’re often prescribed medication — and many times, multiple medications. We live in an age where “There is a pill for everything”.

What is LIFE? LIFE is a program that allows older Pennsylvanians to live independently while receiving services and supports that meet the health and personal needs of the individual. Living Independence for the Elderly (LIFE) is an all-inclusive, comprehensive program that helps people maintain their independence in the community through supportive services. The program is known nationally as the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE). All PACE providers in Pennsylvania have “LIFE” in their name. The first programs were implemented in Pennsylvania in 1998. What Does LIFE Provide? LIFE programs are local, nonprofit PACE programs that provide comprehensive and integrative care to seniors who may not otherwise be eligible to live independently at home. There is a coordinated plan of care that includes medical, social and daily living support. At LIFE programs, older adults are treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. They receive the very best care from dedicated geriatric care professionals without sacrificing their independence. Primary care and community services are provided through the Day Health Center and through the in-home program based on an individual’s needs. The continuous coordination of care sets the

LIFE program apart from any other care model, which ensures quality of life to its Participants. A LIFE program physician will become the primary care doctor. He or she specializes in the care of older adults with chronic medical conditions. Moreover, the LIFE physician meets daily with a team of care professionals (social worker, dietitian, therapists, personal care assistant, etc.) to ensure the participant is staying in the best possible health. This team approach has been proven throughout the United States to provide the most coordinated, proactive care, so that the participant can enjoy the best possible quality of life.

Aging in place becomes increasingly more important as your loved one ages and as their activities of daily living become more difficult. When this begins, home care is the best option. Finding a caregiver that fits your loved one’s needs can seem like a daunting task. To know exactly what to look for in a caregiver, start with these steps. Know What You Need Before starting the search, you need to know what type of caregiver is right for your loved one. First, determine if medical or non-medical care is needed. Medical home care will typically be short-term, while non-medical home care usually is long-term. Then, make a list of activities that require caregiver assistance, and decide how many days a week a caregiver will be needed. Know Your Budget Next, determine your budget. What type of care you need, for how long, and how often will factor into how much home care will cost. In PA, medical home care can be provided by agencies out-of-pocket for $35$45 an hour. Non-medical home care can be covered by long term care insurance policies, Veteran’s benefits, or the Medicaid program. However, out-of-pocket agency care costs around $25-$30 an hour. To cut down costs, you can hire an independent caregiver online with

Caregogi.com which averages caregiver rates at $12-$15 an hour. Set a Schedule Create a schedule. Choose the days your loved will need help and schedule select hours during those days that a caregiver will be needed. Balance this schedule out with the time that your loved one’s family and friends can provide.

Hiring the Best Caregiver for Your Loved One

Interview and Hire Caregivers Using your decisions from the previous steps, caregivers should be selected by matching their qualities with your loved one’s needs, budget, and schedule. If you are hiring an independent caregiver, Caregogi.com can help you find the right caregiver with its custom algorithm. After you have found several matches, set up interviews to determine which one is right for your loved one. If using an agency, a caregiver will be chosen for you and not your choice.

Another choice would be aggressive treatment that could include cardiac resuscitation (CPR), a breathing machine or dialysis. Whatever you decide, the information will serve as instruction to your agent and your health care professionals. Once you have engaged in the process to identify your preferences and have completed the legal forms, you will need to have your health care directive signed by two witnesses. In Pennsylvania, notarization is not required. When you complete an advance directive, you should give

a copy to your agent and to your doctor. It is also good to review your documents occasionally. Having a family meeting to share your decisions with your loved ones can be helpful. Family members are often comforted that they have an understanding of what Mom or Dad or another loved one would want when they can no longer get answers.

CBD for Seniors Health deterioration is an almost unavoidable part of the aging process, often leading many seniors to turn to a variety of pharmaceutical drugs with complicated side effects. Many senior citizens are instead turning to CBD (cannabidiol) and are discovering its positive effects on their overall wellness and vitality. Here are just a few of the common ways seniors can benefit from CBD: 1. JOINT SWELLING AND GENERAL PAIN RELIEF Most seniors will at some point deal with aches and pains and joint soreness. Several studies have shown CBD to be a promising treatment for joint pain as well as its underlying causes. This is because CBD attaches itself to the CB-2 receptors, reducing inflammation and alleviating discomfort in almost any part of the body. The overall relaxation effects of CBD can also provide tremendous benefit for overall pain relief. 2. BRAIN AND VASCULAR HEALTH Scientists are beginning to understand CBD’s potential to support brain and vascular health and aid in post injury recovery. A study in Neuropharmacology revealed that rats administered with CBD experienced improvement in brain excitotoxicity and neurobehavioral function, and a 2015 study in Journal of Cerebral Blood Flow & Metabolism demonstrated CBD’s promise as a “neuro-

82 GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA - FALL 2018 - SPRING 2019

protectant”, with positive pharmacological effects. 3. SLEEP DISORDERS Quality sleep is necessary for health and vitality, especially as one ages, and sleep issues are common among seniors. CBD has been shown to decrease chronic muscle spasms caused by neuromuscular disorders or random spastic episodes that can often interrupt sleep. Furthermore, CBD helps maintain homeostasis in our body’s endocannabinoid system, which can increase sleep quality and regulate sleep stability. 4. HEART HEALTH Studies show that CBD has tremendous benefit for our cardiovascular system in several ways. First, it causes vasorelaxation in our arteries, which can support a healthy blood pressure and increase blood flow to the heart. In addition, it’s been shown to alleviate ischemic tissue damage, which can prevent the heart from receiving enough oxygen. CBD does not have to be smoked and can instead be consumed through oils and tinctures, making consumption for seniors easy and healthy. It can also be more cost effective than using pharmaceuticals and produce fewer side effects. Editor’s Note: This article was contributed by www.echoconnection.org.

When a loved one suffers from a stroke, it is an unexpected and life changing event for everyone in the family. Stroke can cause paralysis or weakness on one side, visual/perceptual impairment, reduced coordination and balance, language and cognitive difficulty, bowel and bladder issues and swallowing difficulty, among many other issues. Stroke impacts thinking, talking, and daily living skills. Luckily, stroke rehabilitation can help greatly improve a patient’s symptoms from a stroke and in many cases, even return them to their former independent lives. Valerie Bucek, MA CCC-SLP/L treats stroke patients regularly as a speech therapist for HealthSouth Harmarville Rehabilitation Hospital and sees the positive effects rehabilitation has on these patients every day. “It is important to have a treatment plan unique to the individual patient in order to address that patient’s specific needs and challenges while building on their strengths and preserved skills,” says Bucek. “No two patients are alike.  Each person is affected by a stroke in different ways and every patient has their own goals and lifestyle.” While there are a variety of settings where a stroke patient can receive rehabilitation services, such as a skilled nursing facility, Bucek says the inpatient route is often the most comprehensive. “The benefits of inpatient rehabili-

tation for stroke over a skilled nursing facility include an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team led by a physiatrist, access to rehabilitation nursing specialists or CRRNs, more intense therapy sessions of at least 3 hours a day, five to seven days a week, and staff with specialized training certifications for stroke-specific treatments.” The inpatient setting also includes access to a variety of rehabilitation technology that can greatly enhance traditional therapy to help improve grip, gate, swallowing, coordination and more. Furthermore, inpatient rehabilitation hospitals can be certified by the Joint Commission for rehabilitation programs such as stroke. In order to qualify for this rigorous designation, a hospital’s program must follow evidence-based Clinical Practice guidelines, monitor specific performance measures to continuously improve the program and meet or exceed the Joint Commission Disease Specific Care standards. HealthSouth Harmarville and Sewickley are both Joint Commission certified. “Patients and caregivers should look for this certification because it shows the commitment the hospital has to this specific patient population to provide exceptional care and services,” says Bucek.

HEALTH AT HOME - NON MEDICAL HOME CARE

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

120 GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA - FALL 2018 - SPRING 2019

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.

You took that fantastic job offer in another state. Mom and Dad were healthy and fine. Then Dad passed away and now Mom is not doing well on her own. She’s reached an age where daily assistance may be necessary and you’re 1,000 miles away. If this scenario sounds familiar, remote care giving might be the answer. “This scenario plays out each and every day in thousands of American’s lives,” says Richard Bitner of Visiting Angels Living Assistance Services. Visiting Angels focuses on remote care giving and takes the burden off families and loved ones of those that need care. “Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are not the only options available,” says Bitner. Non-medical home care allows your loved ones to live where they want to be … their own home. Visiting Angels has over 300 offices around the country to help educate families and provide care to loved ones. Here are some questions to consider when determining if your loved one needs professional care: •D  oes your loved one need assistance with walking? •H  as their physical and/ or emotional health been declining? •A  re they able to prepare nutritious daily meals? • Are they able to shop for

themselves? •A  re they able to manage their bills and financial responsibilities? •A  re they taking their medications on time? • Are they still able to drive safely? •A  re they in need of companionship? •A  re they able to dress and groom themselves? If you answered yes to any of these questions, professional home care might be an option for you. When considering agencies, choose one that can offer more than basic homemaker services, including dressing, bathing and other hygienic activities. Because not all states require licensing, be sure to check that the agency is bonded, insured and licensed. Since home care services are non-medical, they currently are not covered by Medicare. But you do have options. Home care services can be paid individually or by long term care insurance. Veterans and their spouses might qualify for the Disability Pension for Aid and Attendance.

HEALTH AT HOME - NON MEDICAL HOME CARE

How Do I Choose A Homecare Company? Non-medical homecare can be difficult – asking a stranger to come into your home and provide care for your loved one. It’s even more difficult finding the right agency that you feel you can trust to provide the best care and offer you peace of mind. There are many benefits of using homecare: • Keeping your loved one in the comfort of their own home • Homecare is personalized to the individual’s needs and allows you to be in control • It is safe and reduces the burden for families Use this partial list of questions to interview homecare agencies: Important Starting Questions: • Is your agency licensed by the state (ask to see the license)? • Is your agency and caregivers bonded and insured? Do you have workers’ compensation insurance? • May I have a copy of the results from your most recent state survey? About the Staff: • Are the caregivers employees of the company or independent contractors? • Do you run criminal background checks on employees? • Is a Department of Transportation check done to verify driving record? • Do you check references? • Do you do drug screenings? • Do you require caregiving experience? How many years?

132 GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA - FALL 2018 - SPRING 2019

• Do you provide ongoing training? About the Services: • What specific services does the agency provide? • What type of service agreement is required? • Do you have guidelines or standards of conduct for the caregivers? • Will we be able to meet the caregiver before they start working? • Is a supervisor available 24/7 if there is an emergency? • How often will you review the plan of care? The Details: • Do you have consistent assignments or will the caregivers change on a regular basis? • What happens if my caregiver is sick or there is inclement weather? • Can the caregiver provide transportation to appointments or social outings? Is there a charge for mileage? • How do I communicate with my caregivers? • Do you have current or former clients that I can call for references? Whether you need specialized care, personal care, meal preparation or friendly companions, homecare keeps your loved one in their home surrounded by family.

Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States. For every 100,000 people, 438 new cancer cases were reported and 159 people died of cancer. Prevention is the best way to fight it, as many types of cancers can be prevented, while others are more easily treated when diagnosed early. Cancer screenings are an important part of early diagnosis, prevention and treatment. COLON CANCER Everyone age 50 and older needs to get regularly screened for colorectal (colon) cancer. When found early, colorectal cancer can be treated. Screening helps find abnormal growths that can be removed before they turn into cancer. Almost all colorectal cancers start as polyps, or abnormal growths in the colon or rectum. Screening can help find these polyps so they can be removed before turning into cancer. BREAST CANCER Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, after skin cancer. The risk of developing breast cancer increases as women get older. Current recommendations are for women ages 50 to 74 to get a mammogram (an x-ray picture of the breasts) every two years. CERVICAL CANCER Pap tests are recommended every three years for women ages 21-65.

There are other screening options for cervical cancer, too. LUNG CANCER I urge you, if you smoke, to quit now. Lung cancer, one of the many risks from smoking, is the leading cancer killer in women. If you are over 55 and a current smoker, or someone who has quit within the past 15 years, ask your doctor about lung cancer screening. SKIN CANCER Nearly 5 million people are treated for skin cancer every year in the U.S. Skin cancer can be serious, expensive, and sometimes even deadly. Fortunately, most skin cancers can be prevented. Protect your skin when you go outside. Use sunscreen, wear protective clothes, or hang out in the shade when you can.

Screening, Prevention and Early Detection

PROSTATE CANCER Men who are 55 to 69 years old should make individual decisions about being screened for prostate cancer with a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test. Men who are 70 years old and older should not be screened for prostate cancer routinely. Learn more about cancer screening and prevention at: www. cdc.gov/cancer. ~ Editor’s Note: This article was contributed by Apryl Garrett, Publisher, Seniors Blue Book of Greater Pittsburgh.

HOSPICE - DEFINITIONS

Hospice Care Definitions continued ed to the patient at their private residence or in a personal care home or assisted living facility. The criteria for continuous care may include: Severe pain or symptoms which are out of control, psychotic episodes, breakdown of caregiver, imminent death and family unable to cope. Continuous care is typically reserved for crises that require a constant presence by a nurse or care team.

THERAPY SERVICES PROVIDED: AR-AROMA THERAPY – Occurs when regularly scheduled visits are adequate in maintaining the individual’s symptom management. Care is provided at the individual’s private residence, a retirement community, an assisted living, or a skilled nursing facility. MA-MASSAGE THERAPY – 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. MU-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 creates goals and objectives for their patients and uses music activities 144 GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA - FALL 2018 - SPRING 2019

and music experiences (listening, composition, improvisation, or playing/singing a familiar song) in order to achieve those goals. This is not reimbursed by Medicare. P-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. 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.

24/7 ADMISSIONS – 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. Many hospice companies provide Grief Groups that meet and address issues of grief in a supportive group setting.

HOME HEALTH – Indicates whether the hospice agency has a sister home health agency that will

RESOURCES FOR AGING WELL

provide assistance with medically based home health needs such as nursing services, home health aide services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, respiratory therapy or speech therapy.

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. 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.

HOSPICE CARE

Services to Help at Home Services in the home are divided into three kinds. • Home Health Care. This service is provided by nurses and other medical professionals. • Home Care. This service is provided by uncertified staff. • Hospice Care. This service is specifically for persons with a life-limiting condition. Services are provided by nurses and other medical professionals. Home Health Care is skilled medical care to help an individual regain their health. Typically, home health care is used following a hospitalization or surgery. The role of the staff is to help homebound patients with a complicated medical condition that can be managed or improved. A doctor’s order is required. Home health care is generally covered by Medicare or other health insurance. Home Care is nonmedical care to help a person remain in their own home. There is no need for a doctor’s order. Nonmedical home care includes • personal care (such as bathing and toileting); • dressing and undressing; • fixing meals; • assisting with walking; • transferring in and out of a chair or bed; • light housework; • transportation; • visiting and companionship. Nonmedical care at home can be

152 GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA - FALL 2018 - SPRING 2019

vital to keeping your parent independent and safe. Unfortunately, health insurance, including Medicare, does not cover nonmedical care. If your family member has long-term care insurance, nonmedical home care may be covered. Check your family member’s policy for details. Hospice Care is skilled medical care for individuals with life-limiting illnesses. Like home health care, hospice involves visits from a team of medical professionals. Both the patient and the family have access to the team’s support services. A doctor must recommend hospice based on a diagnosis of an incurable condition. In addition, the doctor must estimate that the patient has six months or less to live. Hospice care emphasizes quality of life. The focus is on keeping the patient comfortable emotionally, physically, and even spiritually. Nurses and physicians help manage difficult symptoms (pain, nausea, and fatigue). Social workers and chaplains assist with emotional and spiritual issues (anxiety and depression). Nurse’s aides come several times a week to bathe and groom the patient. And a volunteer is available to give family members a few hours off each week. Most people wish they had received the support of hospice earlier in their condition. Hospice care is covered 100% by Medicare. Editor’s Note: This article was submitted by Concordia Visiting Nurses. They may be reached at 877-752-6200. See ads on pages IFC, 77, 151.

RESOURCES FOR AGING WELL

Due to the increasing evidence of health and social benefits, medical professionals and caregivers of older adults have begun to pay attention to the importance of the bond between people and their pets. The American Heart Association has linked the ownership of pets with a reduced risk for heart disease and living longer. Pet owners tended to report greater amounts of physical activity, lower blood pressure and modestly lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Some research has shown that people who had pets of any kind were also more likely to survive heart attacks. Studies have also shown that pet owners over the age of 65 visit their doctors 30 percent less than those who don’t own a pet. “Over the last decade or so there have been periodic reports on the association between pet ownership and cardiovascular risk” said Dr. Glenn N. Levine, lead author of the scientific statement by the AHA, which looked at the influence of pets on heart health. Pets offer affection and unconditional love, fight off loneliness, and help keep your mind off of your problems. They can have a positive influence on your body’s reaction to stress by reducing the stress hormone cortisol and boosting levels of serotonin and dopamine, the

hormones that help you to feel calm and relaxed. Pet owners have less depression and are better able to handle stress, grief and loss. Older adults with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease also benefit from having a pet in the home or community where they live. Animals have a calming quality to them that can help to soothe an Alzheimer’s patient and decrease aggressive behaviors. Alzheimer’s patients suffer less stress and have fewer anxious outbursts and behavior problems when there is a dog or cat in the home. People with dementia associate pets as friendly and non-threatening; when a pet is present, they tend to participate in more activities. Additionally, studies show that nutritional intake improves. Pets provide companionship, unconditional love, a sense of purpose and boost your overall mood; helping you to find meaning, joy and happiness in your life. The health and social benefits to older adults is plentiful. Hug your pet today! Editorial Note: ticle submitted Apryl Garrett, Publisher of Seniors Blue Book Greater Pittsburgh Area.

Pet Ownership and Older Adults – Health and Social Benefits

PERSONAL CARE HOMES & ASSISTED LIVING COMMUNITIES

Is Senior Living Right for Me? There are many reasons to choose senior living. The process can seem daunting. The most important thing is for seniors to have a place to live and thrive in an environment that is best suited to their needs. There are three categories of reasons to choose a Personal Care Community: SUPPORT: Has your loved one recently lost a spouse? Is your life being affected by trying to care give? Does your loved one feel they are burdening their in-home care provider? When choosing senior living, your loved one and family members get the support they need to grieve a loss, process the emotions of life changes, as well as lift the burden of having relatives/friends serve as caregivers. SOCIALIZATION: Have you noticed a loved one withdrawing from activities and socialization? Has your loved one lost the ability to drive? As seniors age, their abilities and desires change. Many times, seniors start withdrawing from social opportunities due to depression, confusion, transportation and an overall lack of knowledge of what options are available. There are programs

184 GREATER PITTSBURGH AREA - FALL 2018 - SPRING 2019

and services available that are built around the need seniors have to regain independence and maintain dignity as they age. SERVICE: Have you noticed deferred maintenance in your loved one’s home? Is your loved one missing meals or bills going unpaid? Most Personal Care Communities provide everything today’s seniors need to thrive: transportation to social and personal appointments, a culinary department with prepared meals, a program where employees handle much of the process of transitioning. When residing in a Personal Care Home, maintenance, transportation, housekeeping and all utilities are normally included. Some Personal Care Communities also provide Memory Care for your loved ones suffering from dementia.

Person Direct Care in Comparison to Institutional Care Person Direct Care meets the unique needs of individuals confronting Alzheimer’s/Dementia, as well as those of their loved ones.

• Lack of Long-term, Loving Relationships. Possible Outcome: Loss of self and the potential of early passing.

Person Direct Care practicing the Eden Alternative Philosophy is the method which develops strong, open, and transparent relationships for all concerned and provides individualized care. Standard institutional care approaches its delivery of care by strict adherence to processes, schedules, staff needs and relentless organizational rules and red tape. Many institutions are a form of what has been termed in the industry as ‘warehousing.’ Institutions have a difficult time maintaining control of their “patients” care. This lack of individualized attention can cause their patients to experience: • Premature Loss of Mental Capacity

In contrast to institutional care, Person Direct Care: • Aims to see the person with dementia as an individual, rather than focusing on their illness or on abilities they may have lost

• Physical Degradation • Malnutrition: Poorly Prepared Meals • Dehydration: Lack of Attention • Over Sedation • "Lock and Key" Syndrome • Extreme Boredom • Abuse: Staff-to-Resident/ Resident-to-Resident • Neglect from constant changes in Management and Staff

RESOURCES FOR AGING WELL

It’s Not Only About The Money. The problem with simple wills is that they generally deal with who gets the stuff.  General will plans for married families typically distribute assets “all to spouse then to my kids in equal shares.”  Consider this question… is money the only thing you give to your kids? Don’t we also give our kids other valuable things: respect, work ethic, religion, morals?  Of course we do. Unfortunately, this is where simple wills fail.  There is no written plan for how our kids should be raised.  It is better practice to think through what’s really important in your family.  A good estate plan will write out those wishes. Then, the legal documents can ensure those wishes are carried out.  

those same instructions regarding your assets and family important if you are in a coma for a decade?

Simple Wills Don’t Protect Assets If you leave all your assets to a family member, those assets just became subject to that family member’s predators and creditors. Estate Planning is a time to be practical. Let’s assume I (like you) leave all the life insurance money to my spouse. Let’s assume that 5 years later (I would hope not 5 months later) she decides to remarry.  What if she chooses the wrong person and he later files for divorce? What happened to all the money? The same analysis would apply to your children if they marry the wrong person. The same analysis applies to other risks like your heirs They Only Deal With Death being sued for a future car acciWills often name decision makers and dictate where the dent, etc.  A great estate plan would assets go in the event of an untimely consider these future risks. After all, you’re not paying the life insurance death.  They may also name guardians for small children. BUT… wills premiums so that your family’s future spouses become wealthy, are only matter after you pass away. you? They don’t matter if you’re still alive.  So, what would happen if you Editor’s Note: This article was written by Tim Sechler, became severely disabled in an acEsq., a Certified Elder Law Attorney and Principal of cident but didn’t pass away.

Avoid Nursing Home Medicaid Mistakes “I didn’t know how stressful this would be.” This is a comment from a client of my firm who recently placed her Mom into a nursing home and is attempting to have Medicaid pay for the care. If you are in the process of applying for Medicaid benefits, you probably share this sentiment. A nursing home admission will result in tremendous financial stress for families. Nursing homes can cost more than $10,000 per month and you are often required to pay privately until you run out of money. The only other payment source is Medicaid, which has extremely complicated rules. Although there are exceptions, Medicaid generally allows a single person to keep up to $8,000 of available resources. Additionally, a single person can

keep an exempt home and car. Unfortunately, once the person passes away, the state has a claim against their estate and the family may lose the “exempt” house and car. In the situation of a married couple with one spouse in the nursing home, the healthy spouse is allowed to keep half of the available resources (up to $123,600), plus the healthy spouse’s retirement account, exempt house and car. All other assets and potentially some of the family’s monthly income must be spent on care. This can leave the healthy spouse destitute. When someone enters a nursing home, they must “spend down” their assets to the above limits to become eligible. Unfortunately, the process of spending down is continued to next page Indicates website link on seniorsbluebook.com 205


Avoid Nursing Home Medicaid Mistakes continued confusing and full of pitfalls. Here are some mistakes to avoid: • Spending down on the wrong items • Applying at the wrong time • Failing to make exempt transfers • Misunderstanding the 5-year look back period • Failing to protect the healthy spouse • Working with nonlawyer “Medicaid Advisors” • Failing to avoid Estate Recovery • Failing to update Estate Planning Documents • Thinking it is too late to protect assets Finally, many families fail to take advantage of more complex planning options. The law allows for several strategies that can be used to protect assets, especially if there is a healthy spouse. You probably won’t learn these strategies from a caseworker, online or from a nursing home employee. To be sure you are making the right decisions, you should consult with a Certified Elder Law Attorney to understand how to become eligible for Medicaid without making mistakes. If you are paying privately for nursing home care, call our office at (724) 841-1393 to schedule a Complimentary Initial Consultation. Editor’s Note: This article was written by Tim Sechler, Esq., a Certified Elder Law Attorney and Principal of Sechler Law Firm, LLC. See our ad on the Back Cover.
