PREMIER SPONSOR: Amada Senior Care

Amada Senior Care in Colorado Springs adapts to insurance rate spikes Amada Senior Care helps seniors understand long-term care policies. As premium rates for long-term care insurance policies are on the rise in 2019, Amada Senior Care in Colorado Springs offers thorough guidance to seniors through different options to get the most from their policies. In some cases, premium rates have increased as much as 500% higher than previous years. But Amada will help seniors through their options, which can be as easy as activating their policy so they no longer have to pay premiums and can begin to receive benefits.

2 || SENIOR 2019 PARADE OF HOMES 2 LIFE EXPO 2019

Amada Senior Care CEO and Owner Ken Jenson is devoted to clearing up confusion about these policies that seniors might have after rate spikes. “If you get a letter from your long-term care insurance policy and they want to raise your premium, call me,” Jenson says. “We will sit down with you — for free — and tell you what every one of those options mean.” Long-term care insurance plays a tremendous role in senior care that many families rely on, but Amada encourages those families to know how to use their insurance properly. Professionals at Amada will work

with families on a personal level to review policies and verify benefits that seniors may have. Amada experts will help families complete and submit the necessary paperwork without any delays in long-term care and process any claims that seniors are eligible for. Members of Amada are part of a large network of contacts at insurance carriers and third-party administrators who can be contacted directly. Amada members will personally advocate for seniors. After completing the process of filing the claim, Amada professionals will foresee that

seniors receive long-term care benefits as soon as possible. A customized plan will be made for care options and the professionals will even monitor the payments. Currently, Amada cares for more than 300 families and employs more than 350 caregivers, who travel from Denver to Pueblo and all places between. Clients benefit from Amada with daily living services such as cooking, cleaning, dressing, bathing, laundry, transferring, toileting and more. To contact Amada Senior Care for more information about long-term insurance premium increases, call 719-377-9121.


Have your long-term care insurance premiums gone up?

WE CAN HELP!

Call us for a free analysis: 719-377-9121 At AMADA we are a PRIVATE HOME CARE AGENCY who specializes in helping you access and maximize your LOVED ONES LONG TERM CARE INSURANCE POLICY. Here at Amada Colorado Springs, it is our goal to

meet all of a family’s senior care needs and to exceed their expectations of what care can be. If we have been brought in to provide in-home care for a senior, we go beyond assisting them with activities of daily living like cooking and housekeeping to enrich our client’s life in the most meaningful ways we can. This could mean discussing a favorite scripture with Aunt May, or baking Dad’s favorite cookies, or even helping Grandma keep her prized flower garden tidy. By adding these personal touches to the care we provide, we are able to show our senior clients that they are truly valued as we vastly improve the quality of their lives.

When home is no longer the ideal environment for a senior, we will guide that senior and his or her family to the assisted living environment that ideally suits their unique needs and preferences. We will even continue to check in on clients who have moved to senior housing communities, just to make sure we haven’t missed an opportunity to be of service to them. We invite you to contact us at Amada Senior Care Colorado Springs to learn more about how we can help a senior in your life age with dignity and give your family the peace of mind they deserve. Let our family take care of yours, because, as we say:

“Someone you love needs us.”

PREMIER SPONSOR: Humana

Born before 1955 or living with a disability? Here are 5 questions to help you choose a Medicare plan By Mark Iorio, Central West Region President, Humana

If you’re one of 56 million Americans eligible for Medicare, it’s important to understand coverage options when selecting your health plan for 2020. Research can take time, and many people find working with a licensed health insurance agent helpful when deciding between Original Medicare, Medicare Advantage plans, Prescription Drug Plans and Medicare Supplement plans. Answering these five questions can help you make an informed choice during the Medicare Annual Election Period, October 15 to December 7: Are my doctors, hospitals and specialists in network? Most Medicare Advantage plans offer online tools to help you find doctors and hospitals that are in a plan’s network. A licensed agent can also help you look up hospitals and doctors to see if they’re in a plan’s network and taking new patients

and confirm what’s in network if you’re a seasonal resident. Which plans will cover my prescription drugs? Original Medicare does not cover most prescription drugs. Many Medicare Advantage plans include prescription drug coverage, or you can sign up for a Part D Prescription Drug Plan separately. A licensed agent can look up the medications you would like covered and help you estimate what the cost of each drug would be on a plan. Are there new, innovative benefits I should consider? Beyond vision, hearing and dental coverage, if you aim to become healthier, look for fitness program benefits as many Medicare Advantage plans offer a gym membership. If you travel or appreciate technology, virtual doctors are helpful services when you can’t see a doctor right away. Most Medicare Advantage plans

now offer transportation to doctor appointments and the gym. Will a zero monthly premium plan save me money? Private insurers help keep premiums down through programs like disease and chronic care management, which help people better manage health conditions and, in turn, reduce medical costs. You’ll still need to pay your Medicare Part B premium, which covers medical services and preventive care. You might want to use the additional premium dollars you save for out-of-pocket medical costs, such as co-pays. Do I need to sign up for Medicare Parts A and B if I’m still working? If you or your spouse have health insurance from an employer, you can delay enrolling in Medicare until the employment or the coverage stops. At that point, you’re entitled to a special enrollment period of up to eight months to sign up for Medicare

What is Stepping On?

Stepping On is a program that has been researched and proven to reduce falls in older people. It consists of a workshop that meets for two hours a week for seven weeks. Workshops are led by a health professional and a peer leader—someone who, just like you, is concerned about falls. In addition, local guest experts provide information on exercise, vision, safety and medications.

• More than one-third of people 65 years or older fall each year. • Falls are the leading cause of injury and hospitalization for trauma and death among older adults.

• Cardiology and Endo Vascular Services

Topics include: • • • • • •

• Neurosciences

Simple and fun balance and strength training. The role vision plays in keeping your balance. How medications can contribute to falls. Ways to keep from falling when out in your community. What to look for in safe footwear. How to eliminate fall hazards from your home.

• 35 percent of people who fall become less active. • 40 percent of people who enter a nursing home had a fall in the prior 30 days.

• Rehabilitative Services • Respiratory Therapy

• Orthopedic Services Here’s what some workshop participants have to say:

“When I’m walking, I still think, ‘lift your feet, walk heel-to-toe.’ I have stopped falling outside! It has made me more aware of the way I walk.”

Memorial Hospital Central 1400 E. Boulder St. Colorado Springs, CO 80909 Memorial Hospital North 4050 Briargate Pkwy. Colorado Springs, CO 80920

• Oncology Services

“Not only did we learn some things about preventing falls, but we had a good time doing it. It was really fun.”

• Trauma Services

Is this workshop for you? • Sepsis

Care

Stepping On is designed specifically for anyone who: • • • • •

Is 60 years or older. Has had a fall in the past year. Is fearful of falling. Lives at home. Does not have dementia.

For questions or to register for a Stepping On class, contact HealthLink at 719.444.CARE (2273) or uchealth.org/SteppingOn.

for hands-on demonstrations, risk assessments, health education Why should I be concerned about falling? and giveaways. Classes are offered throughout the year.

Falling is very common. It can result in injury and can shake your confidence. The threat of falling can be a barrier to safely doing all the things you want to do at home and in the community. That’s why preventing falls is critical to maintaining independence.

Learn more about this effective treatment that uses no medication and helps in ways that medications cannot help.
