Healthy Aging with a Little Help from Your Intergenerational Friends Eye-Brain-Body Therapy with a Partner Improves Balance for Seniors; Nonprofit Founder Reviews Benefits

T

wo major areas connected to overall health that are too frequently overlooked, particularly for those aged 65 and older, are visual capability and social connectedness, says therapist and charity innovator Karen Peterson.

“Physical and mental attributes are intimately connected, and what many do not realize is that balance is 20 percent based in vision. There are multiple ways of testing this, but perhaps the most simple is to stand on one leg, and then try to do so with your eyes closed – when your eyes are closed, you vestibular system, which controls your body’s balance, begins to work overtime,” says Karen Peterson, a therapist with multiple certifications, and creator of the new book and video series, “Move With Balance: Healthy Aging Activities for Brain and Body,” (www. MoveWithBalance.org). She’s also the founder and director of Giving Back, a nonprofit organization that grows and spreads programs that support senior health. “Seniors of all ages – 55 to 105 – need to continually work on improving their balance, coordination, strength, vision and cognitive skills,” says Peterson, who has been teaching vision, brain and kinesiological modalities to children, businesspeople, athletes, classroom teachers and adults of all ages since 1987. “When they do, they’re less likely to fall and more able to enjoy life.” In 2005, she expanded her program to focus on elders; specifically, to encourage active and younger seniors to buddy up with frail elder seniors for exercising eye-brain-body connections. “Some folks reach a milestone age and recognize that they need to get active and, after only a short while, they actually feel younger. It’s these folks who we’ve encouraged to mentor other seniors who haven’t taken that step,” Peterson says. “Members from different generations have partnered in training, and it’s an interesting learning experience for both parties.”

www.SRGserv.com


Peterson reviews the benefits of paring with a training buddy while practicing exercises that facilitate eye-brain-body cohesion: • Independent study: Performed by a registered nurse and Dr. Lorrin Pang, Director of the Maui District Health Office, the Moving With Balance program, headquartered in Hawaii, has provided plenty of positive data. The objective is to reduce the number of falls in elderly who are institutionalized, many with cognitive deficits. The study was designed to compare the number of falls in the group doing the Move With Balance exercises to the number of falls in those serving as controls (no exercise). While the multiyear study is in the peer-review process, data shows a statistically significant reduction in falls in the target group – 38 percent. • The importance of vision exercise: Vision gives the nervous system updated information about the position of body parts in relation to each other and the environment. With that information we judge distances, avoid obstacles and control our balance. Visual information goes directly to the midbrain, where it becomes part of the sensory motor pathway. This information lets us know and control where we are in space. When people get old, they tend to lose their control of this seeing-based system that provides spatial orientation. With one in three seniors experiencing a significant fall this year, visual-spatial exercises are an important measure for prevention. • One example of a visual integration exercise – the arrow chart: With a partner holding the chart, look at the arrows and call out the direction indicated by each individual symbol. Then, thrust your arms in that direction; in other words, say and do what the arrow indicates. A partner can verify or correct movements. For an additional challenge, do the opposite of what the arrow indicates. • Help from your friends: Working with a partner is tremendously beneficial for many of these exercises. Not only does it help with structure, consistency of schedule and morale, many of Peterson’s exercises call for coordinated movements and fast reaction times, including ball tosses. Partners can help cue and coach, and they provide security for seniors afraid to challenge themselves for fear of falling. Successfully executing of these exercises indicates good brain processing ability, which is necessary for cognitive skills and balance, Peterson says.

About Karen Peterson Karen Peterson is founder and director of Giving Back, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of elders through intergenerational mentoring. She has multiple certifications, including as a educational kinesiologist, natural vision improvement instructor, Touch for Health instructor and a massage therapist. For 27 years, Peterson has been teaching these modalities to children, businesspeople, athletes, classroom teachers and adults of all ages and occupations.

“Aha Moment” The

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 36

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!

Start Remodeling in Your Own Backyard Remodelers Council of the Greater Houston Builders Association offers tips for transforming outdoor living spaces

W

hen homeowners consider a renovation, the interior of a house often gets all the attention. The outside space, however, deserves just as much thought, according to members of the Remodelers Council of the Greater Houston Builders Association. A few small changes can make an outdoor space more welcoming and functional, And with a little more effort, an outdoor living space can become spectacular – rivaling the interiors of some homes.  Brandon Lynch, founder of Keechi Creek Builders, said the trend of extending living space to the outdoors took off a couple years ago. “People are staying in their homes and aren’t house-hopping as much as they used to. When they want to make their current home more live-able, they tend to start by updating their patios.” Lynch said the reason is simple. “They want to have somewhere to go outside. That’s where they want to spend their time. They want to be outdoors, barbequing and hanging out by the pool.” Rob Douglass, owner of Texas Custom Patios, is seeing a similar increase in interest. “There’s a lot of demand for adding outdoor living space,” he said. “In Houston, we have good weather most of the year. People want to take advantage of that.” There are several ways the builders recommend improving outdoor space: n Update finishes. Douglass said a good first step is changing the finish on existing features – from walkways to ceilings. “Instead of bare concrete, use stamped concrete, travertine or slate floors,” he said. He also suggests adding new stains to wooden ceilings or shade structures. 40

www.SRGserv.com


“Make all the same kinds of decisions as you do for interior spaces,” he said. “Look at granite countertops, flooring, paints and stains.” n Change the lighting. Lighting is another essential update. Spending time outdoors is not just for the daytime. Good lighting makes outdoor living space safer and extends the use of a deck or lawn into the evening. n Get cooking. Outdoor kitchens are the heart of the action, Lynch said. The grill typically takes center stage, but homeowners are cooking more than steaks and barbeque outside these days. Open-air kitchens feature refrigerators, sinks, pizza ovens, counter space and even bars. “Many of our clients install commercial grade equipment,” Lynch added. n Heat it up. Lynch said most of his clients request a fire pit or fireplace for their decks and patios. Douglass said outdoor fireplaces are one of the hottest trends he has witnessed lately. “People are not doing wood-burning,” he said. “Usually, it’s a gas log that can be started with a switch. People want it to be maintenance free.” n Make it more entertaining. Consider adding an entertainment system to your outdoor living space such as a television and surround sound speakers.

People want to come home and feel like they’re getting away from it all

n Keep it cool. Lynch said that in Houston, shade structures are essential. “In Texas, we have to be in the shade,” he said. “Ceiling fans are also popular additions to outdoor living spaces.” n Go Texan. “A lot of people have a hill country look in mind,” Douglass said. “Stone and cedar are very popular in Texas.” Outdoor living projects can range from small and budget-friendly to extraordinary and pricey. At the end of the day, homeowners want more space to entertain friends, family and neighbors. “People want to come home and feel like they’re getting away from it all, Douglas said. “They’re creating a space that’s memorable. If people sell their houses in the future, I think the outdoor living space is what people looking at the home will remember.”   The Remodelers Council of the Greater Houston Builders Association is an organization of remodelers and industry associates who are dedicated to the promotion of excellence and professionalism within, and public awareness of, the Remodelers Council. The Council achieves its mission through education, certification, and service to the membership, industry and the community.  www.ghba.org/consumers Say you saw it in the Senior Resource Guide when contacting our advertisers!

Five Steps to Guarantee You Won’t Run Out of Money in Retirement: Provided

by

Oak Harvest Financial Group

T

here once was a time when retirement was simple. You’ve worked hard for a long time so that one day you could retire comfortably and enjoy the things in life like golfing, gardening or spending time with your grandkids. Not too long ago, you could rely on social security, personal savings and maybe a pension to offer you financial support in retirement. Retirement planning has changed. Today, pensions are a rarity and the future of Social Security is uncertain. This means the responsibility to make sure you have enough money to last you through retirement – lies on you. Here’s the good news; there are 5 simple steps to protect and guarantee your nest egg – and peace of mind – in retirement: 1. Educate yourself on your retirement options. Retirement has changed drastically; consequently, so should your investment strategies. There are safer and more appropriate investment options available to American retirees than risky stocks, bonds and mutual funds. It is crucial to educate yourself on what is available. 2. Don’t take any stock market losses in retirement. The risks of the stock market are for those who have time left in their working years to recover their losses. In retirement, the paychecks stop along with the raises and bonuses and it becomes far more important to protect what you have. There are strategies available that can safely grow your principal without the risk of losing money. 3. Get guaranteed income & inflation protection. Our economic future is uncertain, so you can’t rely on Social Security. Talk to a retirement specialist about how to receive a monthly income that not only meets or surpasses your income needs, but is guaranteed for life and even adjusts for inflation. 4. Prepare for medical expenses not covered by Medicare. A married couple aged 62 retiring this year (2013) can expect to pay an average of $200k out of pocket in medical expenses during their retirement. Protect your nest egg from depletion and prepare for medical costs. There are several new innovations in the life insurance industry that have “living benefits” built in to counter unexpected medical expenses during your lifetime. 5. Work with a retirement specialist. Today, it’s not just about getting to retirement; it’s about getting through retirement. All financial advisors are not created equal – just like doctors, there are different specialties and expertise. The rules are ever-changing in retirement planning, so stick with a retirement specialist. Your retirement should be one of the most enjoyable times of your life – follow these five easy steps so that you can retire without worry.

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. * Heading color corresponds to the section in which listings and advertisers may be found.

Mobility Independence: The Right Choice Provided by Stephanie Robinson, New Life Medical Equipment

Maintaining a sense of independence is critical, which means that assistance may be required due to recovering from an injury, long-term disability or just normal aging. With so many different forms of mobility equipment to choose from, it can sometimes be overwhelming to make the right selection. Before choosing the right equipment it is always a great idea to â&#x20AC;&#x153;try it before you buy it.â&#x20AC;? Consider the following when choosing: Canes are a great option for those seeking more balance as they walk. Individuals that have very little problem with moving around are the best candidates for a cane. A standard cane, which has a single tip, can be used by those who need just a little extra balance. Those that need to bear their full weight can opt for a quad cane which has four tips and will give more balance during movement. For those seeking a little more from their canes, a specialty cane, such as one with a seat attached might be a consideration. Walkers are great for those who are still mobile, but have a higher risk of falling while walking. A standard walker without wheels is the most stable option. However, for a smoother form of movement, a walker with wheels can get one from point A to point B faster. Manual wheelchairs are great for individuals that have very limited overall mobility. This type of equipment comes in standard weight or light weight for those unable to lift and transport heavy equipment. Power wheelchairs are ideal for people that have very limited mobility and are unable to selfpropel in a manual wheelchair. For those that need something more customized for specific disabilities such as a quadriplegia, a custom wheelchair may be the best solution. Be sure to ask what options are available. Mobility is the ultimate necessity for independence. Though choosing the right form of mobility equipment may seem challenging and overwhelming, with the proper evaluation of needs and the help of a healthcare provider, independence is only a simple selection way!

Senior Housing What is the best choice?

I

t can be hard deciding when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 GCMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;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 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 Say you saw it in the Senior Resource Guide when contacting our advertisers!

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. However, housing options vary depending on the location and can range from a single room to an individual apartment, some with kitchens. Help with tasks such as dressing, bathing and cleaning is provided, and additional help is available around the clock. In general, most places provide three meals per day, transportation, 24-hour security, medication management and social activities. Be sure to ask each facility which services they provide. 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. 148

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 postrecovery. Temporary nursing home stays are often covered by Medicare, but longterm or permanent stays are not.

Continued care retirement communities, also known

Be sure to as CCRCs, provide increasing levels of care as needs look for those change. These communities are equipped for all levels of care, from completely independent housing options to organizations constant care options. Seniors can live independently at the that provide outset and transition into minimal care options or nursing the type and care as their needs change. A major benefit is that your loved ones do not have to keep moving as their condition level of care changes. Although cost plays a large factor with this option, that is needed. 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.

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.

Hospice

What You need to Know and Where to Call

How Does Hospice Work?

• Hospice care is for any person who has a life-threatening or terminal illness. 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. All hospices consider the patient and family together as the unit of 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, hospitals and prisons. • Typically, a family member serves as the primary caregiver and, when appropriate, helps make decisions for the terminally ill individual. Members of the hospice staff make regular visits to assess the patient and provide additional care or other services. Hospice staff is oncall 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

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, with loved ones nearby 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 most 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 • Nursing care • Medical equipment (like wheelchairs or walkers) • Medical supplies (like bandages and catheters) • Drugs for symptom control and pain relief • Short-term care in the hospital, including respite and inpatient for pain and symptom management • Home health aide and homemaker services • Physical and occupational therapy • Speech therapy • Social work services • 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.

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 will be cared for in a Medicare-approved facility, such as a hospice residential facility, hospital, or nursing home. The Medicare Hospice Benefit Does Not Cover the Following: Treatment intended to cure your terminal illness – As a hospice patient, you will receive comfort care to help manage symptoms related to your illness. Comfort care includes medications for symptom control and pain relief, physical care, counseling, and other hospice services. Medications not directly related to your hospice diagnosis are not covered under the Medicare Hospice Benefit. 166

www.SRGserv.com


Hospice team members will consult with the hospice physician and will inform you and your family which drugs and/or medications are covered and which ones are not covered under the Medicare Hospice Benefit. The Hospice uses medicine, equipment, and supplies to make you as comfortable and pain-free as possible. Under the hospice benefit, Medicare won’t pay for treatment to cure your illness. You should talk with your doctor if you are thinking about potential treatment to cure your illness. 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. Care from another provider that is the same care that you are getting from your hospice – All care that you receive for your illness must be given by your hospice team. You can’t get the same type of care from a different provider unless you change your hospice provider. Nursing Home Room and Board – 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.

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.

Questions to Ask When Choosing a Hospice Program

Hospice 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. Below is a list of questions you should consider when looking for 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? • What does the hospice volunteer do? • 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?

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. 176

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.

Angel Flight South Central has been providing free air transportation for more than twenty years for people in need of medical treatment not available to them locally. Our pilots have taken to the skies more than 30,000 times on behalf of people in need and have contributed more than $30 million of their own dollars through the operating costs of their aircraft. Our vision is that no one in our service area is denied medical treatment simply because of distance.

Public Affairs Specialist

Different people have different fears, and often Halloween seems to be a time to talk about them. Children may be afraid of monsters in the closet or creatures lurking beneath the bed. Teenagers may fear not fitting in with the popular crowd. There’s something else that needlessly frightens some people: doing business online with Social Security. The good news is that those fears should be just as unwarranted as being afraid of children in costumes. There are a number of things you can do online at www.socialsecurity.gov, and none of them should send so much as a shiver down your spine. Save yourself a trip to a Social Security office and transact your business from your home or office computer. There’s no need to be afraid to go online because it’s so easy to do business at www.socialsecurity.gov. Here are just a few of Social Security’s online services you can take advantage of with ease from the convenience of your home or office computer: • Apply for retirement, disability, or Medicare benefits; • Find out what benefits you might be eligible to receive; • Apply for Extra Help with your Medicare prescription drug costs; • Estimate your future benefits; • Appeal an unfavorable decision on a disability claim; • Change your address; and • Report employee wages.

Social Securit HHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Question:

How do I update or correct the name on my Social Security card?

Answer:

To update or correct the name on your Social Security card: • Complete an Application for A Social Security Card (Form SS-5), available at www.socialsecurity.gov/online/ss-5.pdf; • Show us original documents proving your legal name change, identity, and U.S. citizenship (if you have not already established your citizenship with us), or immigration status if you are not a U.S. citizen; and • Take or mail your completed application and original documents to your local Social Security office. Note that we must see originals and cannot use photocopies. We will return any original document you mail to us. Learn more at www.socialsecurity.gov.

Question:

How do I report a lost Social Security card?

Answer:

You do not have to report a lost Social Security card. In fact, reporting a lost or stolen card to Social Security will not prevent misuse of your Social Security number. You should let us know if someone is using your number to work (call 1-800-772-1213; TTY 1-800-325-0778). If you think someone is using your number, there are several other actions you should take: • Contact the Federal Trade Commission online at www.ftc.gov/bcdp/edu/microsites/idtheft or call 1-877-ID-THEFT (1-877-438-4338); • File an online complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center at www.ic3.gov; 220

www.SRGserv.com


• Contact the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit by calling 1-800-908-4490, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.; and • Monitor your credit report.

Question:

I work in retirement. How much can I earn and still collect full Social Security retirement benefits?

Answer:

Social Security uses the formulas below, depending on your age, to determine how much you can earn before we must reduce your benefit: • If you are younger than full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for each $2 you earn above the annual limit. For 2011, that limit is $14,160. • In the year you reach your full retirement age: $1 in benefits will be deducted for each $3 you earn above a different limit, but we count only earnings before the month you reach full retirement age. For 2011, this limit is $37,680. • Starting with the month you reach full retirement age: you will get your benefits with no limit on your earnings. Find out your full retirement age at www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/ageincrease.htm.

Question:

Do I have to pay income tax on my Social Security benefits?

Answer:

It depends. Fewer than one-third of our current beneficiaries pay income taxes on their benefits. You will have to pay Federal income taxes on your benefits if you file an individual Federal income tax return and your total income is more than $25,000. If you file a joint return, you will have to pay income taxes if you and your spouse have total income of more than $32,000. For more information, call the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) toll-free at 1-800-829-3676 and ask for IRS Publication 915, Social Security and Equivalent Railroad Retirement Benefits, www.irs.gov/publications/ p915/index.html. People who are deaf or hard of hearing may call the IRS toll-free number, 1-800-829-4059. Say you saw it in the Senior Resource Guide when contacting our advertisers!
