How to prevent elder abuse Dear Savvy Senior, Can you write a column on the shameful crime of elder abuse? I’ve worked for Adult Protective Services for many years, and it seems like this ongoing problem doesn’t get enough attention. ~ Concerned Citizen Dear Concerned, I certainly can! Elder abuse is an immense and often hidden problem that all Americans need to be aware of so they can recognize it, and know what to do if they suspect a problem. According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, around 3.5 million seniors are victims of abuse, but research suggests that this crime is significantly under-reported and under-identified. Fewer than 1-in-6 cases of elder abuse ever get reported to the authorities because the victims are usually too afraid, too embarrassed, too helpless or too trusting to call for help. The term “elder abuse” is defined as intentional or negligent acts by a caregiver or trusted individual that causes, or can cause, harm to a vulnerable senior. Elder abuse also comes in many different forms: physical abuse, emotional or psychological abuse, sexual abuse, abandonment, neglect and self-neglect, and financial exploitation which has increased significantly over the past few years because of the sour economy. Those most vulnerable are seniors that are ill, frail, disabled, socially isolated or mentally impaired due to dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. It’s also important to know that while elder abuse does happen in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities, the vast majority of incidents take place at home where the senior lives. And tragically, the abusers are most often their own family members (usually the

victim’s adult child or spouse) or caregiver. Recognizing Elder Abuse So how can you tell if a friend or your loved one is being abused, and what can you do to help? A change in general behavior is a universal warning sign that a problem exists. If your elder friend or loved one becomes withdrawn or gets upset or agitated easily, you need to start asking questions. Here are some additional warning signs on the different types of elder abuse that can help you spot a possible problem. • Physical or sexual abuse: Suspicious bruises or other injuries that can’t be explained. Sudden changes in behavior (upset, withdrawn or fearful). Broken eyeglasses. Caregiver’s refusal to allow visitors to see an elder alone. • Emotional or psychological abuse (insults, intimidation, threats or social isolation): The elder is extremely upset, agitated, withdrawn, unresponsive, fearful or depressed, or demonstrates some other unusual behavior. • Neglect or self-neglect: Malnourishment, weight loss, unattended medical needs, poor hygiene, unsanitary and unsafe living conditions. • Financial exploitation: Missing money or valuables. Unexplained withdrawals from bank accounts or transfers between accounts. Unauthorized use of credit, debit or ATM card. Unpaid bills despite available funds. Checks written as a loan or gift. Abrupt changes in a will or other documents.

Savvy Senior

What to Do The best ways to help prevent elder abuse is to be in touch, and keep the lines of communication open. If you (Continued on page 19)

He’s even getting more confident and comfortable and not staying with me anymore (not that I like that much), but I am happy that he trusts me to leave and come back. He will lay on his bed and watch me or move to where I am and lay down but he doesn’t follow me and move to where I am anymore.

WCHP attends Biltmore West Range Hunter Pace Jan. 29 The Biltmore Equestrian Center folks went to their rain date for the Biltmore West Range Hunter Pace, which turned out being a great call as the day was absolutely beautiful. The weather was cool with a slight wind and the trails, though a little muddy in spots, were safe and pleasant to ride on. Last year much of the course was newly graveled and it was nice that a lot of that rough material had worked in, which made the footing more comfortable for the equines. The 8-mile ride began on the “yellow trail” and ran past the barn, along the lake and down the road until it finally entered the woods. No cross-country-type jumps were permanently set along the course, but several stadium jumps were set up beside the path

for those so inclined. The halfway point was located under some trees where water was offered to the thirsty riders and their mounts got a mandatory three-minute rest. Before coming out onto the road again and up and over a high grassy hill, the course went between two pastures containing steers and sheep. The warning signs that were erected just before this hazard had most of the riders chuckling. They stated that many horses do not realize that the cows and sheep can’t get through the high tensile fence to attack them and so their riders should beware. Fortunately, the livestock was inclined to be friendly that day. The trail continued past the lake and back to the horse trailers. Lunch was not served at this hunter pace,

William Jameson donates painting to raise funds Saluda News & Notations by Bonnie Bardos

If you’ve ever dreamed about owning an original oil painting by a well-known established nationally — acclaimed artist, look no further than the Saluda Community Library, located at 44 West Main Street. From now through Dec. 8, anyone can purchase a raffle ticket in hopes of acquiring a William Jameson oil entitled “Fall on the Green River.” Valued at $4,000, the 22” x 28” landscape painting is attractively framed in a gold setting. Depicting the local natural beauty of the Green River: nature at its best it will be on view throughout the year close to the front circulation desk. Jameson is known too for his love of nature and hiking, sketching, doing small field studies, taking many photos, then developing compositions. He and wife Anne, also an artist, have now made charming historic Saluda a permanent home, despite forays to Mexico, the Southwest, the low country of South Carolina and Italy! For many years, Saluda went through a period of not having a library — until town resident and community leader Melody Gibson spearheaded an effort, which led to donation of a historic brick building once known as the Martin Tea House. Renovations were finished in 2000 — most of the funding was accomplished privately, without funding from the county. Today, the library offers full services and a well-appointed meeting room used by city council and others. Saluda librarian Bob McCall says, “We appreciate Bill Jameson’s generosity and his hard work to help support the library. Please come buy tickets!” He notes that 100 percent of the proceeds will be used to support the Saluda library. For further information, call the library at 828-749-2117.

Regina Fargis, community relations director for Emeritus at Skylyn Place in Spartanburg, S.C., is a motivational speaker who spoke to the Tryon Kiwanis Club on Jan. 11 about having a brain-healthy lifestyle. As a volunteer for the Alzheimer’s Association, she is well informed about dementia – what she calls “the bandit that robs a family of its history.” She said she wants to motivate people to preserve their stories so that families will always have them. She also recommended several ways to help keep dementia at bay: mental stimulation, socialization, physical activity, good nutrition and spirituality. Kiwanian Bob Scruggs invited Fargis to speak.

Lee C. Mulligan, Esq. Is there a way I can tell my children?

Q. Is there a way I can tell my

children some personal things outside of my estate plan? A. Yes, we have had clients be very creative in the ways they choose to communicate with their loved ones after they are gone. My own uncle left a very touching and inspirational letter to each of his sons. I have had clients leave detailed letters outlining their wishes for future generations, their values and philosophy of life. Several have even videotaped their messages to children and grandchildren. Many of these messages have been quite well done and much appreciated by the recipients. Call (828) 696 1811 for info on legal planning techniques.

Last year’s outhouse race in Tryon (photo submitted by Mara Smith)

like high school sports teams and local nonprofits collaborate on outhouses for the competition.” Outhouse race contestants must design and build an outhouse on wheels that is raced by a team without benefit of a motor. One member of the team sits inside the outhouse. Categories for contestants are grwn-ups, kids under 12 and anything goes. Winners in each category receive cash prizes. The trashion show contestants can be any age, including young children; there are cash prizes for this contest, too. Last year’s first place winner wore a fetching ensemble made with white trash bags. Entry forms are available by

Sponsored by the Tryon Downtown Development Association, April Fool’s Festival includes non-stop music, food, a parade and many foolish, quirky activities. The festival kicks off Friday evening, March 30 with a band jam at the Sunnydale community building; it concludes Saturday evening with a Masquerade Ball. “The festival is a blast,” says Carson. “Where else can you watch an outhouse race!” - article submitted by Nancy Holmes

Cover up…

The annual April Fool’s Festival in downtown Tryon is Saturday, March 31. Highlighting the day is an outhouse race, a screwball affair where contestants pull or push home-built outhouses one block (uphill) to the finish line. Another popular event is the Trashion Show where clothing is made from recyclable materials and modeled by fashionistas of all ages. Festival organizers are calling for entries in both events from Polk and Spartanburg counties and Western North Carolina. “We want to double, triple the number of outhouses,” says Linda Byington, co-chair of the festival. “We’d especially like to see groups
