THE FIRST HOSPICE INPATIENT UNIT IN SUGAR LAND OPENING SUMMER 2014

16 STATE-OF-THE-ART, PRIVATE INPATIENT SUITES DESIGNED TO FEEL LIKE HOME ™

WHAT IS HOSPICE? Hospice is where those with a terminal illness can spend their final days in peace, dignity, and comfort, surrounded by their loved ones while living wherever they call home. We view our work as a sacred honor and our patient-focused approach hinges on creating a plan of care that is tailored to the unique needs and desires of the individual and their family.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR LOVED ONE IS READY FOR HOSPICE? • Frequent calls to the doctor’s office for appointments • Missing doctor office appointments because patient is too sick to make the trip • Increased Emergency Room visits and/or hospitalizations • Weight loss in the past 6 months • Decreased mobility in the past 6 months • Management of patient is focused on maintaining comfort and quality of life • Patient cannot be cured of their primary disease • Patient may or may not be home bound; however requires additional medical services to remain at home.

WHAT IS INPATIENT HOSPICE? Inpatient Hospice is the most intense level of hospice care, often times requiring IV medications with frequent adjustments and monitoring for pain and symptom management. In contrast to an acute care hospital setting, this level of care will allow patients and family members to receive care and comfort in a home-like setting.

THE ALTUS HOSPICE MISSION The Mission of Altus Hospice is to provide professional care with a personal touch. We will treat the disease process with medical expertise while emphasizing quality living, not only physically, but also psychosocially, emotionally and spiritually. Comfort, compassion and calming presence are the gifts we bring to this service, and we are honored to walk with the patient and loved ones through this sacred time.

What Level of Care is Right for You? Retirement Housing Apartment-like facilities that include living essentials such as meals and transportation. These often include facilities for various activities.

Assisted Living These facilities are set up to provide residents help with daily activities and also usually offer some level of healthcare services.

Residential Care Non-apartment facilities that provide assistance for residents with medication, hygiene, and simple tasks such as getting dressed. Typically a home setting.

Skilled Nursing/Rehab These facilities are licensed and equipped to provide residents with healthcare that meets the needs of more involved medical problems.

Alzheimer’s/Dementia Assistance Alzheimer’s facilities provide special programs and assistance for those with memory loss. Some may provide special security measures to prevent residents from wandering off during periods of disorientation.

Respite Care Facilities that provide Respite Care offer family and other caretakers a reprieve from the stress and work of everyday care of elderly persons who cannot perform or manage care for themselves.

Home Care Various types of at-home care, both medical and non-medical, that allow seniors to remain in their place of residence rather than having to travel back and forth or be admitted to a medical facility. A cost-effective alternative to hospital stays or Skilled Nursing facilities.

Senior Day Care Facilities that provide for the needs of seniors during daytime hours only. Services typically include meals, social interaction, arts/crafts/entertainment, and stretching/gentle exercise. Centers often accommodate seniors with Alzheimer’s or Dementia. Day care allows family to go to work or a much needed rest.

Hospice Care End of life care for the terminally ill, usually via visits in the home or facility of residence. Focus lies with pain management, comfort, and emotional support for the individual and family.

Care Management Care managers examine their clients’ needs and make recommendations regarding Home Care providers, the best type of housing for the individual, and other aspects of care that can be daunting for a senior or their family. These recommendations are orchestrated into a comprehensive plan of care.

Knowing Your

Spouse

Story by Mary Jo Rapini

G

In Retirement

etting older is not a guarantee that you will stay married. Along with the freedom from yard work, fixing household problems and working, couples are rediscovering themselves and their partners.

Over dinner one evening, our friend looked at his wife and said, “I don’t know you in retirement.” My eyes grew wide and I happily expressed, “Wow, an honest man.” In truth, we never know our partner completely, and this is what keeps marriage exciting. We all laughed, but it was laughter over sharing a bittersweet truth. I don’t know many people who aren’t looking forward to retirement. Many of our friends have retired and they may talk about their trips, leisure golf games and weekends with the grandkids, but if you listen closely, you will also hear them talk about the difficulty of their transition. Preparing for retirement involves taking small steps. Letting go of work is a huge step, and it doesn’t matter if you complained about your job every day; when it is gone you will feel a void.

Continues

Say you saw it in the Senior Resource Guide!

Grieving and grief work is part of the transition of retirement. Many couples don’t prepare for retirement emotionally. Whenever you idealize a transition, no matter if it is a marriage, a new baby or retirement, you are sure to be disappointed. Couples need to reacquaint themselves with their partner and revitalize their marriage. In essence, no one really knows their partner completely and when the other partner is going through a transition along with you, navigating the relationship can be tricky. Your marriage has to transition in a way it has not done before. Prior to retirement your outlook or vision together is always the future. During retirement, there is a heavy emphasis on the present. People become more aware of their mortality and the importance of living each day in the present. Developing a sense of exploration and curiosity is important, and actually helps predict how healthy you will be through your retirement, both physically and emotionally. If you are on the verge of retirement, these suggestions may help you make the emotional transition as well as the physical ones of actually ceasing your employment:

• IT’S OK TO GRIEVE

Grieving is an important part of retirement, and it does happen whether you acknowledge it or not. It usually presents as sadness, anger or irritability. The more you can journal about how you feel or have a good friend—hopefully your spouse is a good listener—the easier it will be to get through the process.

STAY ACTIVE Physical activity has never been more important than in your retirement. No matter what happens in your life, take 30 minutes each day to be active. Marriages improve with walks; there is no healthier way to begin conversation.

• BE INTIMATE

Keep intimacy with your partner in your retirement years. Couples who are more intimate have healthier hearts, minds and bodies. Date nights are not exclusive for the young. Keep them in your marriage ’til death do you part.

34

www.SRGserv.com


• FORM FRIENDSHIPS

Make new friends and keep the old. The more social you are with other couples, the better your own marriage becomes. Other couples give us new thoughts, new reflections and help us think out of our own box. They also keep laughter in our life.

• TRY NEW THINGS

This sounds like a cliché, but try new things. It can be a new spiritual retreat, a new boating club, or a pet owners club and anything in between. When you try new things, you help the brain form new connections. If your brain ever needed new connections, it needs them in the senior years.

• SEPARATE INTERESTS

Keep your own interests separate from your partner. The more interests you can bring to the relationship, the more the relationship is going to thrive. Also, the more open and accepting you can be of your partner— who is no longer in the mom or dad role—the more interesting and exciting your retirement can be. Kids may help stabilize a marriage, and work gets us in a routine—when those two roles are finished, the greatest role may be freedom; re-learning who we are and who we are married to.

“Aha Moment” The

Article By Eric Hansen | www.HealthLinkConstruction.com

A

n “aha moment”, according to Webster’s Dictionary is, “a moment of sudden realization, inspiration, insight, recognition, or comprehension.” Most of us choose to live in denial about the aging process. And since we tend to feel younger than our age, we fail to plan for the days that follow that inevitable “aha moment.” It catches you off guard – a stroke, a heart attack, a joint replacement, a fall that results in a broken bone – and suddenly everything changes. It’s then that we realize we have no plan for the “what if” that just happened. Aha. Upon being released from a stay in a rehabilitation facility or hospital, the “aha moment” usually hits as you begin to think about the next step. Questions arise such as: who can I trust to help; what changes

40

www.SRGserv.com


do I need to make to my home; what will I need to continue my rehab at home; who should I contact for help? The answers are easier to find than you may think. Look for local resource publications at your pharmacy, church or doctor’s office. Ask the discharge planner or social services director of your rehab facility for help finding answers; or turn to the National Association of Home Builders directory of local contractors with a CAPS (Certified Aging In Place Specialist) certification. Before you begin making any home modification, you want to assess your situation. Consider your immediate needs, reasonable costs, and how fast modifications can be made. Home accessibility is an evolving process and each person’s needs are unique. Keep in mind that many modifications can be addressed over time rather than as an immediate solution. Be sure to discuss your immediate needs versus longer term needs with your aging-in-place specialist. If your immediate need is a wheel chair ramp or a few grab bars, then consider having those modifications done quickly – reducing immediate stress.

There is a “solution for every

need – and plenty of people willing to help you.

Afterwards, take some quiet, uninterrupted time to think about your future – including long term living arrangements. Develop a plan to address those living arrangements. Where will you need to install grab bars? Who will install them? Can you get a wheel chair or a walker through critical doors? Do you need a walk-in shower? If you have arthritis will you be able to open doors and cabinets? Do you need a handrail in that long hallway? How will you get to the second floor if you live in a multi-story home?

The “aha moment” strikes when you least expect it. So, start thinking about possible future needs early on and form a plan to handle different scenarios as you continue to age. Think about home accessibility from the perspective of prevention rather than from the perspective of infirmity, handicap services or a sign of old age. Make a plan for dealing with life’s changes rather than reacting to them after the fact. After all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure – so beat the “aha moment” to the punch!

Reading Between signs of the Cracks n problems

oundatio f ust because you are experiencing foundation problems,

Jowning does not mean you have a poorly built home—and a new home does not mean you’re exempt!

Most foundation problems are caused by soil expansion and contraction, which has much to do with the moisture level of the soil. After a major drought in 2012, Houston is still considered abnormally dry according to the U.S. Drought Monitor. Catch foundation problems early, with these warning signs: Windows & Doors • sticking when opened and closed • gaps between the wall and the frame • separating from the frame • cracks near the corners Indoors • leaks or cracks near the fireplace • cracks in tile or vinyl flooring (if on a slab) • uneven floors • jagged cracks in the drywall Outdoors • cracks wider than 1/4-inch • cracks located at an L-shaped section of the house or near the fireplace • stair-stepping stress cracks in brick • horizontal hairline cracks along foundation As with anything, the sooner you identify the problem, the less damage you will likely have. “Early diagnosis is key to limiting structural harm that soil movement can cause to residential and commercial properties. Often times, the scope of work and monetary investment are much less for those who are proactive and address warning signs,” says Todd Battarbee of Dawson Foundation Repair. 48

Planning

S

for Your Retirement

tatistics show that Americans are choosing to retire later in life. The oldest baby boomers recently hit retirement age and guess what — many of them are still working.

“Not only are we healthier than the generations before us and able to work longer, but we’re likely to live longer and in the back of our minds we’re concerned that we might out-live our resources,” says Paul Ehrsam, market investment director at U.S. Trust and a baby boomer himself. Ehrsam recommends taking steps to prepare for a longer retirement, even if you plan to work past the typical retirement age. A great place to start is to look at what you think your spending patterns are going to be during retirement. Likely, it won’t just be paying the bills — there might be weddings to pay for, grandkids to splurge on — and many baby boomers will be caring for aging parents who might have out-lived their own financial resources. “Our parents are also living longer,” says Ehrsam. “Many retired at a normal retirement age with what they thought were adequate financial resources, but now they’ve lived longer than expected and are dependent on their children to help them out.” 52

www.SRGserv.com


Possible post-retirement expenses: • Grandchildren • Weddings or graduations Ehrsam recommends • Aging Parents taking steps to prepare • Hobbies for a longer retirement, • Healthcare • Housing even if you plan to

Secondly, you’ll want to take a work past the typical look at how you’re going to spend your retirement age. time. “Part of preparing for retirement is deciding how you’re going to fill what we call ‘the time-gap,’ which is the time during the day that you used to spend at work,” says Ehrsam. Some retirees choose to work part-time or volunteer while others might choose to travel or pick up a new hobby. Ways you might fill the time gap: • Travel abroad • Visit family, friends & grandchildren • Volunteer for a cause you are passionate about • Take up a hobby that you’ve always wanted to pursue

A third factor that comes into play when planning for retirement is where you plan to live once retired. Is there a location where you have always wanted to live? Will you be moving near children and grandchildren to help with their care? Do you need to relocate during retirement to be close to aging parents? Considerations when choosing where to retire: • Home cost • Taxes, income and real estate • Climate • Quality of healthcare in the area

Planning for retirement requires careful consideration of many things. However, it can be a fun process when you take time to dream about all the possible opportunities and options. Once you have an idea as to where you want to live and what you want to be doing, you’ll be better able to plan your finances accordingly.

Chiropractor Develops Pain-Busting ‘Miracle Socks’for Diabetics & Foot Pain Sufferers!

Breakthrough circulation-boosting fibers improve blood flow, relieve swelling, boost oxygen flow, and eliminate foot fatigue - naturally in as little as 5 minutes! If you or a loved one suffers from poor circulation, injury, swelling or any condition that leaves your feet fatigued and sore, then read on to discover the breakthrough that can change your life. Good news comes in a ‘pain-busting’ microfiber used to weave a circulation-boosting sock, called BambusaTM. Better Blood Flow The ‘miracle sock’ is made from a patented aniontechnology weaved into every micro-fiber thread used to make a BambusaTM sock. This revolutionary bamboo charcoal thread helps stimulate blood flow. The 3D-weave technology is similar to infrared light therapy to help revitalize stiff and sore muscles. The material can provide almost instant relief to any part of the body it touches, making it ideal for diabetics, athletes, those with inflammation, stiffness or swelling. Without BambusaTM

With BambusaTM

4 Degrees Warmer in 5 Minutes!

Max Temp 29.4o C

Doctor’s Story Dr. Jackson Corely, a self described extreme sports lover, he crashed his mountain bike and herniated three discs in his lower back. Looking to ease his pain, he began intensive research into circulation - boosting compounds from ancient Chinese and Japanese medicines. His research led him to bamboo charcoal and soon he developed a back sleeve that contained this element. He remembers, “Within 2 weeks, I had increased mobility, was walking better, my range of motion improved. I stopped using the cane I’d become dependant on. It was incredible!”

BENEFITS: • Increase blood flow & oxygen • Reduce swelling • Dry feet • Increase mobility 5 Minute Results? John G. of CA says he felt quick results with his tired, swollen feet. “Without exaggeration the relief was almost instantaneous. It is like a heating pad set to low and wrapped around my calf.” Goodbye Burning Feet! Marilyn H. has suffered persistent foot problems and noticed fast results. “The issue was persistent numbness in my toes, like a burning - it was gone completely after a few days of wearing these socks!” Receive 2 Free Pairs of Socks! Order Bambusa™ and receive 2 bonus pairs of socks absolutely free!

Max Temp 33.4o C

Doctor Developed Dr. Jackson Corley, a Chiropractor and inventor of 20 years, created the circulation-boosting 3D-weave. “Physical therapists use infrared therapy to speed recovery. Better blood flow equals less pain. The bamboo charcoal microfiber works much the same way.” Relief for Tired, Swollen Feet BambusaTM socks are not medical devices or compression socks because they don’t restrict blood flow.

The technology used in BambusaTM socks is independently tested to boost circulation, blood flow and oxygen. If you suffer from achy feet, BambusaTM infrared therapy socks can help you. Bamboo charcoal is woven into every strand of the socks, boosting blood flow, oxygen and energy to the body. BambusaTM is backed by a satisfaction guarantee so you can experience short term results and long term results.

“Bein g D i ab et i c, I n e v e r h a d p a i n- f r ee f e et - UN TIL N OW! ”

Chiropractor Develops Pain-Busting ‘Miracle Socks’for Diabetics & Foot Pain Sufferers!

Breakthrough circulation-boosting fibers improve blood flow, relieve swelling, boost oxygen flow, and eliminate foot fatigue - naturally in as little as 5 minutes! If you or a loved one suffers from poor circulation, injury, swelling or any condition that leaves your feet fatigued and sore, then read on to discover the breakthrough that can change your life. Good news comes in a ‘pain-busting’ microfiber used to weave a circulation-boosting sock, called BambusaTM. Better Blood Flow The ‘miracle sock’ is made from a patented aniontechnology weaved into every micro-fiber thread used to make a BambusaTM sock. This revolutionary bamboo charcoal thread helps stimulate blood flow. The 3D-weave technology is similar to infrared light therapy to help revitalize stiff and sore muscles. The material can provide almost instant relief to any part of the body it touches, making it ideal for diabetics, athletes, those with inflammation, stiffness or swelling. Without BambusaTM

With BambusaTM

4 Degrees Warmer in 5 Minutes!

Max Temp 29.4o C

Doctor’s Story Dr. Jackson Corely, a self described extreme sports lover, he crashed his mountain bike and herniated three discs in his lower back. Looking to ease his pain, he began intensive research into circulation - boosting compounds from ancient Chinese and Japanese medicines. His research led him to bamboo charcoal and soon he developed a back sleeve that contained this element. He remembers, “Within 2 weeks, I had increased mobility, was walking better, my range of motion improved. I stopped using the cane I’d become dependant on. It was incredible!”

BENEFITS: • Increase blood flow & oxygen • Reduce swelling • Dry feet • Increase mobility 5 Minute Results? John G. of CA says he felt quick results with his tired, swollen feet. “Without exaggeration the relief was almost instantaneous. It is like a heating pad set to low and wrapped around my calf.” Goodbye Burning Feet! Marilyn H. has suffered persistent foot problems and noticed fast results. “The issue was persistent numbness in my toes, like a burning - it was gone completely after a few days of wearing these socks!” Receive 2 Free Pairs of Socks! Order Bambusa™ and receive 2 bonus pairs of socks absolutely free!

Max Temp 33.4o C

Doctor Developed Dr. Jackson Corley, a Chiropractor and inventor of 20 years, created the circulation-boosting 3D-weave. “Physical therapists use infrared therapy to speed recovery. Better blood flow equals less pain. The bamboo charcoal microfiber works much the same way.” Relief for Tired, Swollen Feet BambusaTM socks are not medical devices or compression socks because they don’t restrict blood flow.

The technology used in BambusaTM socks is independently tested to boost circulation, blood flow and oxygen. If you suffer from achy feet, BambusaTM infrared therapy socks can help you. Bamboo charcoal is woven into every strand of the socks, boosting blood flow, oxygen and energy to the body. BambusaTM is backed by a satisfaction guarantee so you can experience short term results and long term results.

Where do you go from here? I

t can be hard deciding when it’s time to explore a new living situation for a loved one.

When everyday tasks such as cooking or maintaining a house appear to be burdensome, or signs of loneliness become prevalent, it may be time to consider other options. So, where do you go from here? Consider hiring a geriatric care manager (GCM) who is experienced in the different levels of senior care and can assist you with choosing the right one matched to your specific needs. They are usually familiar with local options including their associated costs and can be instrumental in helping determine the types of services your loved one may need. Most GCM’s charge a fee so be sure to get references and fee information before hiring one. If you are prepared to do the research yourself, then the first step is to become educated on what options and choices are available. From there, you can begin to locate places in your area to find one that meets your specific needs and criteria. There are five major housing options to consider: living with a family member or friend, independent retirement communities, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or continued care retirement communities. Moving in with a family member or friend is an ideal option when it is convenient for both parties. This option allows seniors to remain in Say you saw it in the Senior Resource Guide!

a comfortable environment and maintain social relationships. Living with family can often be the most affordable, as well. Home care providers should also be considered as part of this option. Home care services assist caregivers by providing specialized non-medical care as well as create respite opportunities for caregivers, all of which allow a senior maximum freedom. Not to be confused with home health companies who provide medical home care assistance. Be sure to look for those organizations that provide the type and level of care that is needed. Independent retirement communities are housing options specifically designed for active aging adults who need no assistance. This can range from apartments to townhouses and single family homes. This housing option gives seniors maximum independence. Retirement communities generally provide opportunities for socialization, such as a localized clubhouse or game nights. They are ideal for independent seniors looking to retire near people their own age and retain their social lives. However, communities are not a viable option for those who need help with everyday tasks, such as cooking or cleaning. Assisted living facilities provide a low level of care for those who need additional help, but still wish to remain independent. Most are residence hall style with single or double rooms. Be sure to However, housing options vary depending on the look for those location and can range from a single room to an individual apartment, some with kitchens. Help with organizations tasks such as dressing, bathing and cleaning is that provide the provided, and additional help is available around the type and level clock. In general, most places provide three meals per day, transportation, 24-hour security, medication of care that is management and social activities. Be sure to ask each facility which services they provide. needed. Assisted living facilities are usually not covered by insurance and most families use private pay options such as personal savings, pensions or social security to cover the costs. Because this option can be expensive, it is important to check your budget and make sure you or your parent can handle the cost long-term. Skilled nursing homes provide the highest level of care available. Unlike assisted living facilities, they maintain constant care, with a physician or trained nurse on call at all times. Skilled nursing facilities include residence hall style housing, three meals per day, and help with dressing, bathing, eating and managing medications. Most will also provide recreational activities for their residents as well.

This housing option is ideal for those who can no longer live independently and need 24 hour care. Many also offer temporary stay options for those who need constant care after hospitalization and wish to regain their independence post-recovery. Temporary nursing home stays are often covered by Medicare, but long-term or permanent stays are not. Continued care retirement communities, also known as CCRCs, provide increasing levels of care as needs change. These communities are equipped for all levels of care, from completely independent housing options to constant care options. Seniors can live independently at the outset and transition into minimal care options or nursing care as their needs change. A major benefit is that your loved ones do not have to keep moving as their condition changes. Although cost plays a large factor with this option, it creates a stable environment for retiring and allows seniors to form and maintain social relationships. Overall, choosing to transition your loved one into a different living environment is a big decision with many factors to consider. It is important to honestly asses your loved one’s financial situation, their current care needs and how those factors may change in the next five to 10 years.

Read what some of our residents have to say about us:

HOUSING: Skilled Nursing/Rehab

We know that a nursing home is the last place you want to go...but sometimes rehabilitation is just what you need and what the doctor orders.

“I just wanted to put into writing how very much I appreciate all that you and your staff did for my husband and I during his stay with you. The compassion, empathy, kindness and dedication shown us are to be commended.” Vicky B, age 84

“Can’t say enough about your staff from start to finish. They made it a truly wonderful experience. The care that I received during my stay was truly exceptional. Thank you for all you did to get me back on my feet again.” Beth K, age 79 “A nursing home was the last place I wanted to end up after my hospital stay but you folks were great; I will tell you it changed my opinion of what a nursing home is. Thanks for helping to get me strong again.” Victor S, age 64

Texas Law dictates that both birth and death certificates are deemed confidential for a set period of time. Birth certificates are confidential for 75 years, and death certificates are confidential for 25 years after the death has occurred. If a birth or death certificate is requested before this period of time elapses, certified copies of these documents can only be obtained by a qualified applicant. A qualified applicant can be an immediate family member (by blood or marriage), a legal guardian, or the legal representative of the person for whom the document is requested. If you are not a qualified applicant, you may request a verification of a birth or death record. 172

Fees charged for copies of birth and death certificates by the different county offices may vary slightly – contact your local office about cost for copies of Birth and Death Certificates. Certified copies of the birth and death certificates are issued with a state seal and are printed on security paper. Heirloom birth certificates have a different cost and are printed on special paper that boasts a design celebrating Texas. The heirloom certificate ($60) is only offered through Austin, Texas. Funeral homes will supply certified copies of a death certificate for a small fee if requested at the time funeral arrangements are made. It is recommended that you get at least twelve copies of the certificate and notify anyone with whom the deceased had an account. VERIFICATION OF BIRTH AND DEATH The verification of a birth or death record is NOT a certified copy of the birth or death certificate, but a letter with the person’s name, date of occurrence, county where the birth or death took place and a state file number. Letters may not be available at all birth and death registrars. Verifications are available from 1903 to the present date. Fees for birth and death verification (for regular mail or walk-in service) range from $22–$30. This fee is non-refundable for records that are not located. Additional fees will apply for faxing and overnight services.

Deceased Identity Theft To avoid identity theft of a deceased person, it is recommended that you take the following steps: • Scale back the obituary—don’t provide too much information. • Notify banks and creditors. • Contact credit reporting bureaus— request decedent’s credit report and flag as “deceased.” • Report death to Social Security; they will flag decedent’s number as inactive.

16 STATE-OF-THE-ART, PRIVATE INPATIENT SUITES DESIGNED TO FEEL LIKE HOME ™

WHAT IS HOSPICE? Hospice is where those with a terminal illness can spend their final days in peace, dignity, and comfort, surrounded by their loved ones while living wherever they call home. We view our work as a sacred honor and our patient-focused approach hinges on creating a plan of care that is tailored to the unique needs and desires of the individual and their family.

HOW DO YOU KNOW WHEN YOUR LOVED ONE IS READY FOR HOSPICE? • Frequent calls to the doctor’s office for appointments • Missing doctor office appointments because patient is too sick to make the trip • Increased Emergency Room visits and/or hospitalizations • Weight loss in the past 6 months • Decreased mobility in the past 6 months • Management of patient is focused on maintaining comfort and quality of life • Patient cannot be cured of their primary disease • Patient may or may not be home bound; however requires additional medical services to remain at home.

WHAT IS INPATIENT HOSPICE? Inpatient Hospice is the most intense level of hospice care, often times requiring IV medications with frequent adjustments and monitoring for pain and symptom management. In contrast to an acute care hospital setting, this level of care will allow patients and family members to receive care and comfort in a home-like setting.

THE ALTUS HOSPICE MISSION The Mission of Altus Hospice is to provide professional care with a personal touch. We will treat the disease process with medical expertise while emphasizing quality living, not only physically, but also psychosocially, emotionally and spiritually. Comfort, compassion and calming presence are the gifts we bring to this service, and we are honored to walk with the patient and loved ones through this sacred time.

Helping Patients and Families to Choose the Best End-of-Life Care Option Provided by Houston Solari Hospice • Educate yourself on local hospices. Your doctor or local hospitals should be able to recommend hospice providers in your area. Be sure to take note whether the hospice providers you are considering also have inpatient hospice homes in the event that pain and symptoms become unmanageable and 24-hour care is needed. • Contact the hospices. Compile a list of potential hospices to contact. Ask whether they are accredited, certified and licensed. If accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting body, such as the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, the hospice has sought accreditation and is committed to providing quality care. State health departments certify hospices, guaranteeing that the facility meets safety and health regulations. Licensing requirements vary by state and are generally overseen by its respective health department. • Ask for and check references. Ask for references from professionals, such as a hospital or community social workers. Talk with these people about their experiences. Also check with the Better Business Bureau or the State Attorney General’s office to find out whether any complaints or lawsuits have been filed against the hospices on your list. • Inquire about a preliminary evaluation and plan of care. As part of a patient’s preliminary evaluation, a hospice should determine the types of services needed for the patient. The evaluation should contain what the patient can and can’t do for themselves, consultation with family physicians already providing the patient with medical treatment and consultation with family members. • Discuss the treatment plan process. After the preliminary evaluation, the hospice should develop a treatment plan that is carefully created with the patient and family and given to all service providers to ensure smooth coordination of care. The plan of care should be clearly written, with copies given to all loved ones involved. The plan should list specific duties, work hours and days, and contact information for the hospice care supervisor. Inquire how frequently the plan is reviewed and updated to accommodate any changing needs. • Learn about the hospice staff. Hospice patients are cared for by an interdisciplinary team of doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, clergy, volunteers and therapists. Ask about the patient-to-caregiver ratios to make sure that the right amount of care is received. Ask about the continuity of care to determine whether or not the patient will have the same caregivers. This insight can give an indication how satisfied the hospice staff is or if there is a high turnover rate.

Understanding

Hospice

H

ospice care is a philosophy of care that accepts dying as a natural part of life. When death is inevitable, hospice seeks neither to hasten nor postpone it. Hospice provides care, comfort and support for persons with life-limiting conditions as well as their families. HOW DOES HOSPICE WORK? Hospice care is for any person who has a life-threatening or terminal illness. All hospices consider the patient and family together as the unit of care. Most reimbursement sources require a prognosis of six months or less if the illness runs its normal course. Patients with both cancer and non-cancer illnesses are eligible to receive hospice care. The majority of hospice patients are cared for in their own homes or the homes of a loved one. “Home� may also be broadly construed to include services provided in nursing homes or hospitals. Typically, a family member serves as the primary caregiver and when appropriate, helps make decisions for the hospice patient. Members of the hospice staff make regular visits to assess the patient and provide additional care or other services. Hospice staff is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Say you saw it in the Senior Resource Guide!

181


WHO IS THE HOSPICE TEAM? Hospice care is a family-centered approach that includes, at a minimum, a team of doctors, nurses, social workers, counselors, and trained volunteers. They work together focusing on the dying patient’s needs; physical, psychological, or spiritual. The goal is to help keep the patient as pain-free as possible until death. The hospice team develops a care plan that meets each patient’s individual needs for pain management and symptom control. HOW IS HOSPICE PAID FOR? Hospice is paid for through the Medicare Hospice Benefit, Medicaid Hospice Benefit, and private insurers. If a person does not have coverage through Medicare, Medicaid or a private insurance company, hospices will work with the person and their family to ensure needed services can be provided. WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR MEDICARE HOSPICE BENEFITS? Hospice care is covered under Medicare Part A (hospital Insurance). You are eligible for Medicare hospice benefits when you meet all of the following conditions: • You are eligible for Medicare Part A (hospital Insurance), and • Your doctor and the hospice medical director certify that you are terminally ill and probably have less than six months to live, and • You sign a statement choosing hospice care instead of routine Medicare covered benefits for your terminal illness, and • You receive care from a Medicare-approved hospice program. • Please note: Medicare will still pay for covered benefits for any health problems that aren’t related to your terminal illness. WHAT DOES MEDICARE COVER? Medicare covers these hospice services and pays nearly all of their costs: • Doctor services and Nursing care • Medical equipment (like wheelchairs or walkers) • Medical supplies (like bandages and catheters) • Drugs for symptom control and pain relief • Short-term hospital care, including respite and inpatient for pain/symptom management • Home health aide and homemaker services • Physical, Occupational therapy and Speech therapy • Social work services and Dietary counseling • Grief support to help you and your family Please note: You will only have to pay part of the cost for outpatient drugs and inpatient respite care. THE MEDICARE HOSPICE BENEFIT DOES NOT COVER THE FOLLOWING: • Treatment intended to cure your terminal illness. You should talk with your doctor if you are thinking about potential treatment to cure your illness. • Medications not directly related to your hospice diagnosis. Hospice team members will consult with the hospice physician and will inform you and 182

www.SRGserv.com


your family which drugs and/or medications are covered and which ones are not covered under the Medicare Hospice Benefit. • Room and board aren’t covered by Medicare. You may receive hospice services wherever you live, even in a nursing home, however, the Medicare Hospice Benefit does not pay for nursing home room and board. RESPITE CARE AND MEDICARE Respite care is care given to a hospice patient by another caregiver so that the usual caregiver can rest. As a hospice patient, you may have one person who takes care of you every day, like a family member. Sometimes your caregiver needs someone to take care of you for a short time while they do other things that need to be done. During a period of respite care, you might be cared for in a Medicare-approved facility, such as a hospice residential facility, hospital, or nursing home. HOW DO I BEGIN RECEIVING HOSPICE? Anyone can inquire about hospice services. You or your loved one may call a local hospice and request services. The hospice staff will then contact your physician to determine if a referral to hospice is appropriate. Another way to inquire about hospice is to talk with your physician, and he or she can make a referral to hospice. Hospice can begin as soon as a ‘referral’ is made by the person’s doctor. As a hospice patient, you always have the right to stop getting hospice care and receive the “traditional” Medicare coverage you had before electing hospice. All care that you receive for your illness must be given by your hospice team. QUESTIONS TO ASK WHEN CHOOSING A HOSPICE PROGRAM • What services are provided? • What kind of support is available to the family/caregiver? • What roles do the attending physician and hospice play? • How does hospice work to keep the patient comfortable? • How are services provided after hours? • How and where does hospice provide short-term inpatient care? • Can hospice be brought into a nursing home or long-term care facility? • Are any of the staff members certified or credentialed in hospice? • Do physicians visit the patient in the home? • What is the staff to patient ratio? • Are any alternative therapies provided to manage symptoms? • What ‘extras’ does the hospice provide?
