Centenarian Resident On the Go at Friendship Village of Schaumburg

September 25, 2014 by · Comments Off on Centenarian Resident On the Go at Friendship Village of Schaumburg
Filed under: Press-Media Releases 

Rather than simply experiencing her triple digit age, Kathryn Marwitz is enthusiastically embracing it and enjoying just about every minute. The 104 year old may be the oldest resident of Friendship Village but her energy, sense of humor and charisma belie her advanced years. “I call her busy body,” said Areta Rodgers, activity manager of Willows Assisted Living at Friendship Village. “Not that she’s nosey. She’s just busy. Whenever I see her she’s on the go.”

Kathryn has lived at Friendship Village for twenty years. Until this summer, she was in a two bedroom independent living apartment. After a serious fall and extensive rehab, she transferred to Willows Assisted Living where she has assistance if she needs it. The fact is however, that she’s not often around her apartment. “I get out everyday. I know many people and like to keep in contact. There’s not enough hours in the day,” she said. “I think one of the key things in your life is keeping busy and interested. If you lose interest, there’s nothing left.”

During daytime hours, Kathryn is visiting with friends and participating in programs. She’s a fashionista who loves to shop and be pampered. “Kathryn’s always dressed to the nines,” said Areta.

“I recently met with a cosmetician who did a makeover. A gal needs something besides medicine you know!” Kathryn finds time in her busy schedule for weekly manicures.

In the evening, Kathryn is a bit of a night owl, staying up late doing puzzles and reading,

Kathryn said that she finds herself surprised at her own longevity. “I’m just an ordinary person doing the best I can. I never thought I’d live to be this age. I don’t know why I have. My motto has always been to do everything with integrity. You should always give 100%,” she said adding that Friendship Village is a wonderful home. “I’ve made a lot of friends and have a feeling of security. I know I’ll always be well taken care of.”

Areta said that Kathryn “always does everything with a positive attitude. “When you see her, her spirit just carries her in the most positive way. You’ve got to smile when you see her. When you visit with Kathryn you know you’re going to have a good laugh.”

MorningStar Senior Living – Nevada Senior Guide

http://www.morningstarseniorliving.com/communities/morningstar-of-sparks/

MSS-exterior2

At MorningStar, it’s in the air.  In the very chemistry of the place.  You can feel it.  You can see it with your own eyes, every day:  our staff flat out loving our residents, loving them like they do their own moms and dads.

Ken Jaeger, founder of MorningStar, proved his acumen for the senior living industry through 15 years of executive roles, garnering experience in acquisitions, construction and management.

In 2003, an idea began to take shape, a pressing dream to create his own brand of senior living defined by the human touch.  “I wanted to re-create my grandmother’s house, a place where one can go and feel a sense of family.”

Ken had specific designs on how to foster the ultimate environment for the well being of seniors.  Out of these convictions, he established three precepts for MorningStar:  Honor God.  Value All Seniors.  Invest generously in his team.

From his first home in Denver, MorningStar Assisted Living of Littleton, the difference was manifest: all the amenities of a five-star resort infused with the warmth of a real home.

And now, ten years and 12 homes later, MorningStar has become a landmark name in senior living.

From independent living to assisted living, from basic care through Alzheimer’s support, MorningStar’s continuum of service allows residents to extend their stay until a diagnosis calls for 24-hour nursing.  Through Respite Care and Day Programs, MorningStar also opens its homes for short-term stays.

Our website offers even more about the MorningStar difference.  There you’ll read about WellStar, our signature program which encompasses the physical, social, spiritual and intellectual sides of wellness.  You’ll see a gallery of our award-winning architecture and gracious design.  And find a Decision Guide that helps families understand & navigate the complex world of senior living, complete with downloadable templates.  Read especially “Testify to Love,” which captures the sentiments of residents, their families and our staff as to why we do what we do and the impact we have.

We see our residents as heroes—men and women who have exacted out of life all its triumphs and trials, who in raw courage and tenacity have invested their days.  Seniors are a testimony to the colossal events in history.  They’ve witnessed world wars and the worldwide web—all in one glorious sweep.  If anyone deserves honor and respect, it is our seniors.  This is MorningStar’s high and chosen calling.

Sex and the Senior Living Community: N.Y. Times

January 21, 2014 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

With a documented, “rapid” increase in sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) among older Americans, there’s cause for concern about unsafe sex practices happening in retirement communities around the country, says a recent New York Times opinion piece.

Both chlamydia infections and syphilis diagnoses rose substantially among seniors aged 65 and older between 2007 and 2011, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The numbers are similar to STD trends in the 20 to 24-year-old age group, notes Ezekiel J. Emanuel, an oncologist and vice provost at the University of Pennsylvania, and there are a few reasons why.

“First, retirement communities and assisted living facilities are becoming like college campuses,” he writes. “They cram a lot of similarly aged people together, and when they do, things naturally happen.”

Another factor: older people are living longer and healthier, allowing them to remain sexually active late into their lives. More than half of men and about 40% of women aged 60 and older report being sexually active, says Emanual citing a National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior.

“But while they are having a lot of sex, seniors didn’t seem to get the safe sex memo…

How to Talk to Aging Parents About Senior Housing

November 29, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

One in three adults ages 65 and older will fall each year. Use this podcast to learn how to talk to aging parents about senior living before an accident occurs.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, one in three adults ages 65 and older fall each year. Of these falls, 20–30 percent result in debilitating injuries limiting seniors’ ability to live on their own. It is more important than ever for seniors and their adult children to plan for senior living accommodations—before an accident occurs.

Of course, the conversation about senior living can be emotional and taxing for aging parents. Seniors may view the change as a loss of independence, and it can be difficult to think about leaving their home and existing lifestyle to join a new community.

In a recent podcast from MySilverAge.com, Lisa Holland—regional director of quality improvement at be.group, a nonprofit provider of California senior living communities—offers expert tips to ease these challenges and strategies to help start the conversation. Holland explains how to approach the subject respectfully and sensitively, and how to offer the right support for each parent’s unique needs.

Staying Safe on the Road: Senior Driving Guide

November 25, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Learn the challenges that may keep older adults off the road and find tips for staying safe behind the wheel

According to a recent study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, drivers in their mid- to late-80s have lower overall crash rates than drivers in their early 20s and roughly half as many crashes as teenagers—making them among the safest drivers on the road.

However, fatal crash rates skyrocket for drivers ages 85 and older. In “The Guide to Driving Safety for Older Drivers” from MySilverAge.com, Jake Nelson, AAA director of traffic safety advocacy and research in Washington, D.C., says it’s important to understand what health factors can compromise safe driving. If senior drivers have ongoing limitations that could put them or their passengers at risk, they may want to reconsider their capacity to continue driving.

Older drivers should evaluate how the following factors affect their driving ability:

  • Vision. How well a driver can see accounts for about 90 percent of his or her ability to drive safely. Weak visual aptitude can be measured by an inability to read signs, street markings, or to see other cars and pedestrians in low-light conditions.
  • Mobility. Loss of strength, coordination and flexibility can make it challenging to control a vehicle. Mobility difficulties may also be signaled by pain and discomfort performing daily activities as well as arthritis in the neck and shoulders.
  • Behavior. Trouble remembering familiar routes, anxiety or confusion while driving, or problems distinguishing the gas from the brake pedal are causes for immediate concern.

For a complete list of driving safety tips, including information on driver improvement courses, new driving technologies and alternate modes of transportation, download the driving guide for seniors.

Downsizing? 4 Easy Ways to Get Rid of Unwanted Stuff

November 25, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: General 

Use these methods from MySilverAge.com to declutter and pare down before moving into a new home.

Members of the National Association of Senior Move Managers recently reported that 98 percent of their senior clients downsized before relocating.

Downsizing before a move can be both liberating and overwhelming. But for seniors who have acquired many possessions over the years, it can be an especially daunting task. Seniors planning a move into smaller living spaces should begin the downsizing process about 90 days before moving, says Greg Gunderson, owner and president of Gentle Transitions, a senior relocation services company located in Manhattan Beach, Calif.

“The most time-consuming part is the decision-making process,” Gunderson says. But even after deciding what stays and what goes, Gunderson says one question remains:  “What’s the best way to get rid of the items I don’t want?” From donating a book collection to selling a grand piano, here are four ways to give possessions a new home.

  1. Hold an estate sale. Partner with an estate sales group that can facilitate the auction or sale of belongings at the home.
  2. Contact an auction house. Consider letting an auction house take over the sale of high-end valuables such as antique furniture, artwork or collectibles.
  3. Donate to a charity. Thinking about passing some possessions to those in need? Call the charity (for example Salvation Army, Goodwill) in advance to give them a list of the items that will be donated.
  4. Hire a paper-shredding service. Because financial, bank and private documents can contain confidential information, Gunderson says it’s important to practice caution when removing them from the home.

Downsizing can be an essential part of seniors’ transition to a new home. Another important step is finding the best housing solution to meet current and future needs. A free guide from MySilverAge.com addresses common questions about senior living and offers helpful resources to ease the transition. Find out:

  • When is the right time to move?
  • What are the available housing options?
  • Are there services to help with the moving process?

Study by Harvard Medical School Researchers Examines Senior Living’s Role in Changing Health Care System

November 20, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Individuals in senior living communities require an array of health and supportive services to maintain an optimum quality of life. Often, these older adults receive fragmented care through multiple providers and payers, resulting in unnecessary health care expenditures and lower quality-of-care. To address these challenges, Brookdale is partnering with researchers at Harvard Medical School (HMS) and other senior living industry peers to establish the Assisted Living Sector Healthcare Policy Research Fund.

“This support allows us to examine what role senior living providers have in the new models of care that have emerged under health care reform,” says David Grabowski, PhD, professor of health care policy at HMS, who is leading this research study.

Grabowski and his team will examine whether providing more comprehensive, coordinated services in the senior living sector reduces the need for Medicare-paid services and Medicaid-financed nursing home services.

According to Will Clark, Brookdale’s senior vice president of strategy and brand and a member of the HMS Health Care Policy Advisory Council, society’s ability to meet the needs of an aging population is an important political, economic, clinical, and social imperative.

“Harvard’s reputation for tackling some of health care’s biggest challenges and generating meaningful insights that shape our nation’s policy is unparalleled. We are confident Dr. Grabowski and his colleagues’ research will be influential in determining the appropriate role senior living can and should play in our evolving health care system,” Clark said.

Brookdale’s goals for this effort are to create awareness for the potential senior living has to positively impact the health, well-being and overall cost of care for seniors; to identify barriers to creating more integration among senior living and the health care system; influence policy; and identify innovative models that integrate senior living with our health care system.

The initiative is funded through a cumulative contribution of $150,000 from Brookdale and eight other senior living providers — Atria Senior Living, Elmcroft Senior Living, Emeritus Senior Living, Erickson Living, HCP, Inc., Health Care REIT, Inc., Sunrise Senior Living, and Ventas, Inc. Together, these organizations hope to begin a dialogue among health care providers, policy makers, regulators, and consumers on the value of senior living and its role in creating an integrated, outcomes-driven health care system.

The study will occur in two phases. The first phase will consist of analyzing the role of assisted living in new payment-delivery models and presenting a conceptual model of how an integrated model might work, as well as the opportunities and challenges associated with such an approach. Building on the results of the first phase, the second phase of the project will consist of primary data work and potentially the development of a pilot program.

For additional information about the study, contact David Cameron, HarvardMedicalSchool’s director of science communications, at 617-432-0441 or david_cameron@hms.harvard.edu.

Checklist Helps Seniors Through Medicare Open Enrollment

November 20, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Older adults can follow a few simple tips to avoid uncovered expenses in the upcoming year.

With Medicare open enrollment beginning Oct. 15, now is the time to start preparing for future health care needs.

(Logo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130710/CG45364LOGO-b)

Frank Nelson, program manager at the Central Coast Health Insurance Counseling and Advocacy Program, regularly educates Medicare beneficiaries about the importance of open enrollment. He urges seniors to use this period to reevaluate their Medicare Part D coverage and make the most of their policies.

In an interview with MySilverAge.com, Nelson said many beneficiaries feel overwhelmed or have questions about their plans: “It can be a complicated maze. There are a lot of ways you can get tangled up in the nuances.” To avoid the headaches that often come with health insurance, Nelson advises seniors to:

  • Check changes to Medicare Part D. Part D plans should be specific to an individual’s medication needs. Seniors will need to make sure their prescriptions are still covered each year during open enrollment.
  • Request local pharmacy pricing. Open enrollment is a good time to check pricing of prescriptions, as each pharmacy can differ.
  • Purchase a supplemental policy. Older adults might consider Medigap to cover health care costs that aren’t already covered by Medicare.

The steps outlined in this checklist help readers successfully navigate the complexities of Medicare open enrollment and stay on top of their health care plans. Read the full checklist here: http://www.mysilverage.com/medicarechecklist.

AARP Report Highlights Need for Innovative Long-Term Care for the Aging Baby Boomer Population; Japan’s Technological Secrets May Hold the Answers

November 20, 2013 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

A newly published AARP report illustrates a profound demographic shift that will have consequences for decades to come, particularly in the senior living and long-term care industry. Baby boomers are entering their retirement years, while the ratio of potential family caregivers to those who require long-term services and support is beginning to drop. Fewer available caregivers will mean the senior living industry must rapidly adapt to a surging market. The AARP’s full report is available here: http://bit.ly/156phYi

Family caregiving is a low-cost but often burdensome approach to elder care. Becoming a primary caregiver often involves leaving behind a career, among other sacrifices. Plus, these well-intentioned caregivers may not have the expertise necessary to provide the level of care needed by an aged parent. Adults in these roles often feel enormous pressure and stress, sometimes even resentment. At any rate, the nation’s changing demographics will make today’s family caregiving situation far different in the near future.

Between 1990 and 2010, there were about 7 potential caregivers for every one person aged 80-plus. That ratio is at the start of a freefall that will force society to change the way it cares for its elderly members. By 2030, the ratio of caregivers to elderly will be 4 to 1. All remaining baby boomers will have reached their years of highest risk (80+) by 2050, when the caregiver ratio will have plummeted still further to 3 to 1.

Kevin Williams, president of SeniorMarketing.com, suggests innovative thinking will be required to bridge this care gap: “Naturally, with fewer family caregivers available, the responsibility will largely shift to senior living communities, care agencies and already overextended government programs. But it will take more than simply building more communities or training more staff—assuming an adequate number of candidates are even available. Technological innovation may be the silver bullet to raise the standard of living for aging boomers, improve efficiency, and reduce costs.”

The nation of Japan, which has the greatest life expectancy and one of the oldest average populations in the world, has recently experienced a demographic transition of its own. Recently, the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare put out a call for 2 million new professional caregivers, but only received 1.3 million eligible candidates. With low birth rates being the norm, that shortfall will only increase. A tech-savvy society to begin with, the Japanese have embraced robotics and automation as a solution to the elder care issue. Motorized, assistive devices can help older individuals perform tasks themselves, while automated pill dispensers can prevent dangerous medication mistakes. A recent blog post on The Economist explained Japan’s inventive approach to the elder care dilemma: http://www.economist.com/blogs/babbage/2013/05/automation-elderly

Williams concluded: “This demographic shift is a great challenge but also a great opportunity. Forward-thinking, entrepreneurs will be leading the way in this new environment. Technology to assist with daily tasks, provide medical care, monitor, and connect seniors to loved ones is advancing at a faster pace every year. It’s not unreasonable to predict that the future will witness even better care for our future seniors.”

Caring.com’s New Referral Program Supported by Leading Assisted Living Operators

Caring.com Named Preferred Provider by Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA)

SAN MATEO, Calif., May 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — A group of the nation’s largest senior living providers — including Brookdale Senior Living (NYSE: BKD), Emeritus Senior Living (NYSE: ESC), Benchmark Senior Living, and Senior Star — have chosen Caring.com as their agency of record for national buying of Internet leads for families looking for housing and care for their elderly loved ones. Separately, the Assisted Living Federation of America (ALFA) named Caring.com as its preferred partner for Internet marketing services.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20070921/AQF020LOGO)

With surging demand in the U.S. senior housing market, more Americans than ever before are turning to the Internet and online word of mouth to find and select the best senior living providers for their senior loved ones. About 30-50% of the senior living industry’s leads are coming from the Internet and that number is expected to rise, as tech adoption among baby boomers and seniors alike continues to increase. Whether seeking independent livingassisted living, or memory care, about two million consumers every month turn to Caring.com to find expert guidance about their options, research local providers, and get help in making well-informed selection decisions.

The country’s top senior living providers have chosen Caring.com to increase visibility of their senior living communities, optimize inquiry-to-visit rates, and leverage Caring.com’s resources to better nurture leads from the moment the search begins, through the research and decision-making phases, all the way to community selection and move-in.

In Q4-2012, Caring.com expanded its service offering with the launch of a new toll-free referral help line. Available seven days a week to those seeking senior housing, Caring.com’s family advisors explain different types of senior living options, help identify local senior communities matched to the prospective resident’s needs and preferences, schedule tours, share and encourage consumer reviews, and answer a range of senior living questions. With this added consumer support infrastructure, as well as other new and expanded capabilities for lead qualification and nurturing, the group of senior living community partners announced Caring.com as the agency of record for lead qualification and development, starting January 1. The help line is now referring nearly four thousand prospective residents per week.

“Caring.com has been great to work with as they’ve added the referral model to their business,” said Jayne Sallerson, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Emeritus Senior Living. “Emeritus wanted to consolidate our Internet lead buying with a company we could trust, and Caring.com has demonstrated their commitment to consumers, to us, and to the industry. Their new program is showing positive signs of increased tours and conversions.”

“Caring.com has proven themselves to be a strong partner for Brookdale,” said Jim Pusateri, senior vice president of sales at Brookdale Senior Living. “Working with fewer Internet lead sources has improved our operational efficiencies, lowered our marketing costs, and improved consumers’ experience with Brookdale Senior Living.”

Separately, ALFA, the largest national association of providers of professionally managed communities for seniors, signed Caring.com as its preferred provider for Web-based lead services as well as to power the organization’s new ALFA Senior Living Community Directory.

“Caring.com is our preferred provider of Web-based services because they are an exceptional online resource,” said Richard P. Grimes, president and CEO of ALFA, which is the largest national association exclusively dedicated to professionally managed, consumer-driven senior living communities. “Caring.com’s high-quality content, easy-to-use directory, and online reviews help prospective residents and their families find the right solutions for their needs — this is good for consumers and good for senior living.”

“From the beginning, we’ve focused on building the most comprehensive and most credible online resource to help those caring for a senior parent, spouse, or other loved one,” says Andy Cohen, co-founder and CEO of Caring.com. “Unlike some other Internet resources that will only share information about those providers who pay them, we’ve stayed true to our social mission and help connect consumers to a variety of quality resources for their needs. Working with ALFA and the leading senior living communities helps enable our ability to best serve those in need of senior care — and we continue to offer referral to free and low-cost support resources as well.”

Boston-Area Over 55 Community Publishes Free Senior Living Guide

Resource Helps Active Adults Untangle Their Senior Living Options
South Weymouth, MA — Mar 26, 2013 / (http://www.myprgenie.com) — The decision to move — whether to an over 55 community or other option — can be challenging. There are a lot of decisions to make. Sometimes, the choices available can seem confusing.
Fairing Way has created a free Senior Living Guide [www.FairingWay.org/LiveConfident] to help transitioning active adults make their decision with confidence. The guide explains:

  • The types of retirement living options and senior housing choices available — and most importantly, which works for you
  • How to set your priorities
  • Common financial considerations
  • The nine questions you must ask before you move
  • When and how to involve your family in the process
  • And much more!

The guide is available as a PDF on Fairing Way’s website. Active adults can download the free guide at www.FairingWay.org/LiveConfident.
While the Fairing Way Senior Living Guide does highlight a few area resources, the resource is not specific to the Boston market.
“Active adults everywhere are struggling with the same questions,” said Fairing Way Executive Director Joyce Haglund. “What options are available to me, or to my parents? What is right for our needs and desires? The Fairing Way Senior Living Guide helps those over 55 make the choice that’s best for them.”
Fairing Way is the Boston area’s newest over 55 community, located within the new SouthField live-work-play development. Sponsored and developed by established, local, not-for-profit leaders in senior living, Fairing Way offers distinctive apartments with flexible services in an intergenerational setting.

Senior Living Facilities – Some Criteria to Take into Consideration
by: Justin Woods

Once the professionals retire from the work, life becomes too dull for many of them. Though they live under the same roof with their children and grandchildren, still they feel the strong sense of mental loneliness. They miss the office environment where they used to share their feeling and experiences with the other colleagues and it was a real fun for all of them. The working sons and daughters are snowed under the workloads and find no time to chat with the elder parents. Some children are deeply immersed into the thought for their own loaves and fishes. Joining the senior living facilities is a prudent decision for the retirees to cut the shackles of loneliness and share the spaces and experiences with the others.

Senior living facilities: Are they ideal for you- Well, there are many criteria to mull over prior to opting for such choice. The persons feel strong pang of isolation when they have to move out of their houses. Their houses are the largest reservoirs of many fond memories. Still, sometime they have no other way but to choose the senior living facilities. Their children may be settled abroad or in some other parts of the country. They may be too self-centered to take care of the ageing parents. In such cases, the elder persons will feel good by living the rest of their life with the other retired seniors. Sharing the experiences and memories of the bygone days with the other members of the senior living facilities prevents the aggressive depression from setting in.

Senior living facilities: Choose the right one- The elder age is often infested with the minor and major health hazards. So, you need the facility to avail the quick services of a bunch of specialist doctors and trained nurses in times of your needs. Cleanliness and a flock of dedicated and well-behaved staffs are the major considerations prior to making any decision. There are other criteria too to be taken care of before choosing the senior living facilities. The location of the place is also an important factor. The elder persons hate the blaring horns, too much hustle-bustle and love the cool breeze, hues of flowers and sprawling garden in front of the building. So if the senior living facilities offer these criteria, you can go ahead to look for the other benefits.

Quality of food is another essential consideration to ponder over. Gather sufficient information about the qualification of the staffs, provision of any entertainment facility such as TVs or DVDs. The old age does not mean an end of life, it often implies to turn a new leaf. If you have been always a book worm, then ask the authorities if there is any library in the compound of the senior living facilities. Some senior facilities also offer ample spaces to play golf or badminton or lawn tennis. Such indulgence is not only good for the bodies but also a vital tonic for the mental refreshment.

Senior living facilities: Cost factor- It is the deciding factor for many retirees but it is not fair to compromise a lot to find the affordable senior living facilities. The investors often pass the bulk of the multifamily apartment purchase loans borrowed to accommodate the senior citizens to members of the house, but one should avert the over-the-top priced living facilities.

Improving Senior Life With Medical Alert For Seniors

Improving Senior Life With Medical Alert For Seniors
by: Lance Mcisaac

Senior Citizens are in a time of their lives when they should be able to enjoy the freedom to live independently and go places when they desire. Unfortunately, sometimes their freedom is restricted by health concerns caused by their aging bodies. Medical Alert for Seniors can provide them with a sense of security, enabling them to enjoy the freedom they want and deserve. Seniors can come and go as they desire knowing that they have an alert button they can press at any time should they require assistance. This medical alarm system can provide loved ones with peace of mind as well. They can be assured that medical help is only a push of a button away.

With medical alert for seniors, senior citizens can live independently. They have the comfort of knowing that help is available any time day or night should they need it, while they have the freedom to continue to live in their own homes and follow their own routines without feeling like burdens on family members. Should they experience a fall or other medical emergency, all they have to do is press their medical panic button and help is available.

Nowadays, people move around frequently with careers, often leaving elderly parents in distant states. This can frequently be a source of concern for loving children. Being so far away often causes worry for family members who can’t visit frequently or be available in case of an emergency. When their parents or other senior family members have a medical alarm system, relatives can feel secure that they will receive the immediate medical help they might need. This can bring great peace of mind to family members living long distances from their aging relatives.

If you are a senior living alone or the relative of an independent senior, medical alert for Seniors may provide the assurance you need to avoid worrying. Knowing an alert button is always on hand will allow you to continue the independent lifestyle without worry. Seniors love the freedom it allows and their relatives enjoy the peace of mind it provides.

Innovative Senior Housing Community Takes Shape in Tucson include Horses! (equine therapy)

October 16, 2012 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles, Press-Media Releases 

Read about the role of horses and Dr. Andrew Weil along with other exciting news about Watermark’s latest innovation in senior living, The Hacienda at the River in Tucson, Arizona.

Innovative Senior Housing Community Takes Shape in Tucson
Partnerships and Affiliations Announced
Tucson, Ariz. – Before concrete is even poured for the Hacienda at the River, longtime Tucson senior housing developer David Freshwater and his operating partner, David Barnes, are carefully laying the foundation for Tucson’s newest and most innovative senior living community by solidifying partnerships and affiliations with some of Tucson’s biggest names in integrative medicine and therapy.
Most notably, Freshwater and Barnes are teaming with Andrew Weil, MD, to oversee onsite organic gardens and establish culinary principles that will promote optimum health. Co-directors of the Arizona Center on Aging, Mindy Fain, MD, and Janko Nikolich-Zugich, MD, Ph.D., have agreed to provide team-based interdisciplinary healthcare (Fain), incorporating the latest standards and advances of geriatric research (Nikolich) to Hacienda residents, complementing their primary care. Steven Wool, M.D. will serve as medical director and private practice doctor for the community. Evan Kligman, M.D. will coordinate and act as ongoing liaison for all University of Arizona partnerships and affiliations with the Hacienda at the River and other programs under development for Freshwater and Barnes’ organization, Watermark Retirement Communities.
According to Freshwater, the Hacienda team has also entered into an agreement with Barbara K. Rector, MA, CEIP co-founder of Therapeutic Riding of Tucson and Adventures in Awareness, to direct onsite equine therapy, believed to be the first program of its kind to be permanently integrated into an assisted living community.
“We’ve seen equine therapy work so well with residents in other Watermark locations that we’ve made it central to our vision for The Hacienda at the River,” said Freshwater. “Given that The Hacienda site is historically a horse property, we feel this use is especially fitting.”
Utilizing Mission Revival architecture, reflective of the Southwest’s iconic heritage, and set on the terrace at the edge of the Rillito River near River and Hacienda del Sol roads, the Hacienda at the River is envisioned to be a new style of community for mature individuals who need assisted living, memory care, nursing and short-term rehabilitation. The Hacienda is Watermark’s branded response to a new paradigm for de-institutionalized senior living environments: elders receive care almost invisibly through universal workers integrated into the core household, creating a family-centered setting that seamlessly provides expert personal and health support. Each of the four single-story homes at the Hacienda includes a living room and kitchen, library, family room and a front porch. The homes have courtyards with mesquite and other canopy trees. Resident suites in each home have private baths and roll in showers. Nursing and rehab services will also be provided at the new community in a two-story building with the look and feel of a boutique hotel rather than a traditional, institutional nursing home.
Other features of the development will include:
• Green building techniques including water harvesting and gray water systems, and other energy and water saving techniques leading to LEED certification;
• On-site orchard and gardens for providing a portion of fruits and vegetables used at the community;
• On-site restaurant and café featuring natural, organic foods (including those grown on-site) whenever possible serving residents, family members and visitors alike;
• Two rehab facilities for short-term and outpatient services including speech, hearing, occupational, and physical therapies. The Hacienda is also planning to integrate aquatic as well as equine therapies into its rehab programming.
The purchase of the 7.5-acre site closed October 3 and groundbreaking is expected in 2013. More affiliations are in the works, to be announced.
Freshwater and Barnes are nationally noted seniors’ housing experts who happen to live in Tucson. They opened their first senior living community, The Fountains at La Cholla, 25 years ago. Watermark now operates 31 communities coast to coast.

Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging Launches InvestigAge for Aging Services & Seniors Housing Industry

September 24, 2012 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Press-Media Releases 

Mather LifeWays announces the launch of a new online experts forum for the seniors housing/aging services industry, called InvestigAge.

Developed by Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging, InvestigAge is anticipated to be a key resource for senior living/aging services providers, professionals, developers, and investors, as well as for researchers and other stakeholders with interests in the field of aging. InvestigAge will highlight current findings and trends impacting housing and services for older adults.

The InvestigAge Editorial Board, consisting of 12 recognized industry leaders and researchers, will provide brief summaries of original research papers and reports.

Different than an abstract, which merely describes overall findings of a study, the annotated summaries will include a synopsis of the research, as well as a critical evaluation or analysis to help the reader interpret and apply the results.

“We see InvestigAge as a synergistic means to bridge scholarly research and industry practice,” said Linda Hollinger-Smith, PhD, RN, FAAN, vice president, Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging, who led the development and implementation of the launch.
“InvestigAge is just what the field needs around evidence-based research,” said Larry Minnix, president and CEO, LeadingAge. “We value this new tool for disseminating valuable research to senior living providers who are looking for a comprehensive resource to help inform their strategies and move our industry forward.”

Users will have access to InvestigAge online at any time with a login and password; in addition, they will receive a monthly e-newsletter highlighting new articles.

“InvestigAge will bring together key research, reports, and other original resources in a way that will be accessible in one place — rather than requiring extensive online or library searches,” said Mary Leary, CEO and president, Mather LifeWays.

Given Mather LifeWays’ strong reputation as a source of information about aging well through its successful 10-year history of the consumer-oriented Aging in Action online website and e-newsletter, with more than 13,000 subscribers, this highly-anticipated resource will benefit the aging services professional field as well. For more information, or to register for InvestigAge, visit online at www.investigage.com.

Based in Evanston, Illinois, Mather LifeWays www.matherlifeways.com is a unique, non-denominational not-for-profit organization founded 70 years ago to serve the needs of older adults. Dedicated to developing and implementing Ways to Age WellSM, Mather LifeWays creates programs, places, and residences for today’s young-at-heart older adults. Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging is the research and education arm of Mather LifeWays, and serves as a thought leader in the field of aging by designing and conducting national applied research, pilot demonstration projects, and education initiatives.

Vi Marks 25 Years As a National Leader in Senior Living

Vi Marks 25 Years As a National Leader in Senior Living

Vi – the developer, owner and operator of older adult living communities – is celebrating its 25th anniversary in August. Vi operates 10 continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) nationwide.

“We are extremely proud of the accomplishments we have achieved during the past 25 years,” said Randy Richardson, President of Vi. “In an era of uncertainty, our employees and residents can take pride in the fact we are a stable, national presence within the senior living industry, free from third-party debt in our CCRC communities and managed by a strong, long-tenured team.”

Vi was established in 1987 as Classic Residence by Hyatt. The company changed its name to Vi in 2010. The company was created by Penny Pritzker, whose family founded Hyatt Hotels, to leverage Hyatt’s hospitality expertise in the growing retirement living industry to better cater to the needs and lifestyle of discerning older adults.

Vi (pronounced vee) is the Latin root for the word “life.” It was chosen as the name for the company because it captures the positive opportunities to live a more engaging and fulfilling life as an older adult.

Vi’s ability to merge its hospitality heritage with quality senior living is what differentiates the brand from others. Visitors and residents can sense this commitment to quality and service from the moment they walk into one of Vi’s communities, according to Richardson. “Hospitality is in our DNA; and every detail is meant to convey quality service, from the decor to our lifestyle and fitness programs and to our employees who’ve been specially trained in the art of making residents feel at home.”

In addition, Vi communities feature stylish dining venues that enable residents to eat well and dine in style. Menus offer a wide variety of options to suit residents’ nutritional needs and taste preferences. Meals are prepared by chefs who receive specialized training at The Culinary Institute of America.

As testament to Vi’s approach, a recent survey of independent living residents at Vi’s 10 CCRC communities finds them happy with their decision to live at Vi. The survey finds that 94 percent of Vi’s independent living residents who completed the survey are very satisfied or satisfied with the community. Almost 95 percent say they would recommend their Vi community to family or friends.

Late last year, Vi commissioned a report by Ken Dychtwald Ph.D., renowned gerontologist, psychologist, best-selling author, and CEO of Age Wave that challenges the “prevailing myths and misperceptions” about CCRC living. The report, “The Five Myths and Realities of Continuing Care Retirement Communities,” is available here.

The Difference Between Assisted Living and Nursing Homes (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Overview of Assisted Living

Assisted Living, sometimes called Personal Care, is a type of care that supports individuals with their basic Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), including bathing, dressing, preparing meals, and, in some cases, medication assistance or reminders. Residents of Assisted Living communities, whether stand-alone or part of Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), benefit from the community’s planned social, educational and recreational programs, as well as the daily opportunities for socialization with peers. Three daily meals are generally provided.

Assisted Living housing tends to be more intimate, offering an enhanced home-like atmosphere. Apartments are generally studio or one-bedroom, with kitchenettes. Safety features such as call systems and handrails are standard.

Paying for Assisted Living

Assisted Living can be paid for from private funds or with a mixture of private funds and long-term care insurance. Supplemental private insurance will not pay for Assisted Living.

Overview of Nursing Care

Often called skilled nursing and rehab centers or nursing homes, Nursing Care communities offer both long-term skilled nursing care and short-term skilled nursing and rehabilitation services. While supporting individuals with their basic Activities of Daily Living (ADLs), including bathing, dressing, preparing meals, these communities also provide complex medical care in which the services of licensed nurses and therapists (physical, occupational, nutritional and speech) are utilized. These services are often utilized by individuals requiring short-term medical support after an injury, surgery or illness-related hospital stay. Nursing Care communities generally have 24-hour licensed care staffing.

Nursing Care housing is generally a private suite or shared accommodations. Well-designed communities enhance recovery and healing with planned social, educational and recuperative programs, as well as with an emphasis on home-like comforts.

Paying for Nursing Care

Reimbursement for Nursing Care community patients and residents depends largely on length of stay. Different funding sources kick in at different intervals. Short-term rehabilitation stays are often covered by Medicare and/or private insurance, including long-term care insurance. (Certain criteria in terms of length of hospital stay and care requirements while in the Nursing Care community have to be met to receive Medicare payments and it is worthwhile to discuss these with a discharge coordinator at the hospital.) For long-term care residents, private funds, Medicaid, and long-term care insurance are the typical methods of payment.

Senior Living Communities – A Great Place to Retire in Style (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

All through our lives we dream of long vacations in sunny places. We always want to take time to relax and spend time with friends and do fun activities. We want to be able to take advantage of our lives and really enjoy ourselves. Unfortunately most of us have very busy lives.

We are often so busy through out our lives that we do not get a chance to do the things we really want to do. When we are young we are busy establishing a career, saving money to buy a house, finding a loving and suitable spouse. Then all of a sudden we are raising children, working full time, and saving money to send them to college.

As we grow older, we find that we have the maturity and insight to choose how we want to live our lives and what pace we want to live them at. Each day becomes more important, and to live it to the fullest, it’s important to relax and have the time to enjoy every moment and opportunity life offers.

Senior living communities should be considered. These communities differ greatly from the often boring, sterile image of “assisted living”. The modern communities often have fun and uplifting environments, and may be near beaches, pools, and golf courses. These facilities are receiving more attention as the baby boomer generation begins to enter senior living.

Brookdale Senior Living is one standout senior living community that you simply have to see for yourself. The community offers classes in art, aerobics, book clubs, and even intramural sports teams. You can also choose to live at Brookdale full- or part-time. This is a particularly great feature if you like your house but want to escape it in the cold winter months!

Communities for seniors are a wonderful way to enjoy your retirement. You can reside in a lovely community with residents who are your own age and share your interests. If you look into senior living communities, you can find the one that best fits your needs and favorite pastimes. You will finally have the chance to enjoy yourself and engage in all the activities you’ve dreamt of doing.

Senior Living Properties – 20 Point Checklist (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

A move to senior living properties, retirement communities or estates is often complicated by perceptions and emotion. Make the decision as rationally and objectively as possible. A mistake will likely result in considerable stress and wasted money.

The questions, and their significance will depend on your personal circumstances and on how the estate is set up. I suggest that you go through each issue with a fine tooth comb.

Questions to be answered by the estate management.

1. With residents are there restrictions with for example: having someone to live with you, visitors, car parking, pets or anything else?

2. Are there any specific medical requirements to qualify to live independently?

3. Is it required to give details of any medical conditions or treatments? If so, who can see them and are they kept confidential?

4. Is there convenient estate or public transport available?

5. If the units are incomplete, can a resident change the design or finishes?

6. Are there any circumstances under which the deed of sale be cancelled?

7. Can a resident move, or be moved, from one type of accommodation to another. If so, how would the decision be made?

8. Are residents actively involved in the running of the village and in setting any fees and changing estate rules?

9. Are any resident rights at risk if the village is sold?

10. What exceptional charges will have to be paid by residents?

11. Are there any limitations when selling units? Could there be a disagreement over the selling price or improvements made?

12. Have all the estate management proven experience in this type of development?

Personal Check List – some points to ask yourself.

13. Does my my family, advisor and friends agree with my decision to move?

14. Am I considering the move because of all the daily hassles of running a home?

15. Have I considered all the information about the estate I have chosen? Has my legal representative explained all the relevant conditions in the deed of sale to me?

16. Do I think that this is the best choice for me? Does the this estate living suit the things that I believe are important? Have I spoken to any residents in the estate?

17. What choice is there if I become too ill to live alone? Will the estate and my unit suit me if I ever need a wheelchair or walking aid?

18. Are there services especially intended for the elderly like nursing care and an emergency call system? Will it meet my current and expected future needs?

19. Have I made a comparison of the facilities and the alternative financial arrangements of other developments?

20. Can I comfortably afford the estate I have chosen and what will it cost me if I decide to leave?

Working through these issues it is very apparent that this is an important choice in anyone’s life. The decision to consider senior living properties is often taken at a time of emotional distress so it is critical that it’s made in as objective and rational way as possible.

Senior Living – An Ideal Place for Retired Seniors (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Everyone wants to live in peace and happiness even in old age, and senior living options are available for these people. In such a fast-paced world, children usually don’t have time to take care of their ageing parents. If they look for some retirement options, however, things could be easier. For all retired people, retirement communities are a great place to spend their lives in happiness and contentment. For most seniors, independence comes with a lot of difficulties, but for those who find it tough to accomplish their daily chores there are assisted living homes. When people get older and their children are unable to take care of them, there are a variety of senior living options.

Most seniors resist frequent change, so selecting a retirement community has to be done with great care. Most of the assisted living homes are set up so that the residents of the facility can have a better quality of life than they would experience in their traditional homes. It has often being observed that when it comes to elder care, the most important thing is to get exercise and have activities that enhance their lives and promote longevity. Improving the quality of life through senior living is a very real possibility, and this is the top goal of the assisted living homes. These facilities are there for all senior citizens, whether they are retired or not and whether they need assistance or not. After retirement, a lot of people tend to stop taking care of themselves as well and try to keep living on their own, but this stage of life ought to be the most enjoyable one. If you want to enjoy your life, then check into the best retirement community.

For retired people, there are a number of senior living options that can be chosen depending on the needs of the individual. The two main choices after retirement are living with family or moving to a retirement community. The choice of these senior homes depends on the overall health, independence, and mobility. If the aged person does not like going very far, then assisted living homes that are located near shopping areas would be best. As we get older, we try to find activities that will keep us engaged and happy. A lot of senior living facilities organize events for elderly people to share their thoughts.

Active seniors who are independent in their daily lives can opt for a regular retirement community which serves their individual needs. Senior citizens need to understand that staying in senior living is not a social stigma, but is a way to enjoy retired life to the fullest without being dependent on anyone. The ideal place for retired people among all the senior living options is the retirement community because it really caters to the needs of retired people.

Horizon Bay’s retirement communities, Active Adult Communities communities and Assisted Living Community redefine life for seniors where they are respected as individuals and encouraged to live life more meaningfully.

Assisted Living and Retirement Communities: Great Food Equals Happy Residents (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Meal times are bar none the most important activity of the day for seniors living in retirement and assisted living communities. Eating is an immensely enjoyable activity when you’re young (as evidenced by our 60% overweight population) and for the elderly, and is often the only enjoyable activity of the day. And while fattening home cooked dishes will always be on menus – just watch the uprising if they took away chicken fried steak from anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon line – communities should still be striving for quality and freshness.

 

  1. Our seniors spent their whole lives deciding when and what they wanted to eat. Isn’t it only fair that they get to do that now? While many communities have limited meal times – and this is not necessarily bad, it’s certainly better to have an all day dining program in place. When is the last time someone told you that lunch was served at 11AM sharp? Our seniors aren’t children and they’re paying a lot of coin to live in these places. Communities should attempt to be as flexible as possible in their scheduling to be respectful of the decision-making ability of these folks, even if they come in at the same time. Every. Single. Day.
  2. It’s just as important to give seniors the choice of where to sit. Senior communities can be like high school with folks moving in and out of social circles. Wouldn’t you get sick of sitting next to the same person every day? What if you didn’t like them? Assigned seating should be reserved only for residents with very high care needs who need extra attention.
  3. Knowledgeable Food & Beverage Director. All the better if the chef is a nutritionist (and in some states it’s the law). Even if no need exists now, he or she should be able to tell you what they can and can not do in the event diets change for health reasons. Diabetes, chewing problems and diverticulitis, among many others – are fairly common ailments among an aging population and something to think about when considering a move.
  4. Quality and Quantity. Look to see how extensive the menu is. Residents should be given at least three options at every meal, one hearty, one healthy, and one light. Even home style dishes should be made with fresh ingredients and a minimum of salt, and served with fruits and vegetables that will be pleasing to any palate.
  5. Cleanliness and Atmosphere. Keeping the kitchen and dining room clean are incredibly important to help prevent the spread of illness within a more frail population prone to picking up every little bug. Check food safety inspections and be sure to walk all the way into the dining room (and in the kitchen if they allow it) to make sure staff looks clean and crisp, salt and pepper shakers free of any visible debris, table surfaces sanitized, and glasses and silverware spotless.
  6. Don’t forget to try the food. While every community claims to have the best around, make sure you ask to try it for yourself. Your taste buds don’t lie and it will give you a much better idea of what the community is really like as a whole.

Can Baby Boomers Afford Luxury Senior Living? (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Can baby boomers afford luxury senior living? This is one of the great questions that smart real estate developers have been asking themselves for the last few years. On the one hand, there are many boomers who have lots of money and good credit scores. And those folks are being targeted each and every day by people who are marketing to baby boomers.

The number of senior retirement places has increased astoundingly just in the last few years. Actually, it has reached the point where there is now a surplus of excellent senior retirement communities around. And when there is an oversupply that means only one thing to prices. They are going down.

That scenario, in a nutshell, is why so many baby boomers can now afford to buy luxury senior living places. The prices on these great communities have plummeted drastically. That is not such good news for the people who bought at the height of the real estate pricing because their property values fell through the floor. And in many cases, has seen a number of people just walking away from their properties because it mad no sense to keep paying on it.

But for those who waited, or for those boomers who are just now coming to the age where they are thinking about where they want to live when they retire, this is an ideal circumstance. There are literally tons of properties on the market at distressed prices. Some being sold by the property owners and some by the management of the retirement communities. Either way, though, the deals are quite amazing.

One of the areas hardest hit pricewise in the active retirement community market is the golf community. Many, many, many of these developments were built. And many of the properties were sold in these communities. And then the real estate bubble burst and folks started not being able to pay their mortgages. Just like what happened in the non-senior real estate market.

Lots of foreclosures, lots of second and third mortgage defaults, and lots of distressed properties coming up for sale.

So the answer to the original question is, yes, baby boomers can easily afford luxury senior living residences. And in many cases, can now afford to buy the retirement home of their dreams simply because so many people found out too late that they could not afford to keep the place they thought they would live in forever. And because we live in an online world, the real estate bargains are pretty easy to find with just a little bit searching around the internet.

Moving to Senior Living: You Have to Time It Right (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

The transition to senior living doesn’t happen immediately. You have to research senior living, find out what’s available, understand the fees, and budget accordingly. Years ago, when we moved my father-in-law to senior living, we reserved a unit for ourselves.

“If you plan to live here within the next 10 years or more, you need to make a reservation now,” the marketing manager explained. “Move when you’re able to take advantage of what we have to offer.” We took his advice and paid a $1,000 deposit, which was put in a special account and earns interest.

When is it time to move to senior living? That’s the question we, and perhaps you, keep asking. Each person is different and has different reasons for moving. After weeks of thought, we identified the four top things that will determine when we move. These factors may apply to you.

Family responsibility is at the top of our list. After our daughter and former son-in-law were killed in separate car crashes, we were appointed as our grandchidren’s legal guardians. Our grandchildren are fraternal twins and moved in with us when they were 15 years old. Both graduated from high school with honors and are incoming college sophomores today.

Though we are no longer their guardians, the twins still live with us, and need a place to come home to at holiday time and in the summer. We won’t move until they graduate from college and graduate school.

Health is the second factor on our list and could easily become the first. Like many older adults, my husband and I have health problems and take prescribed medication. Our health is generally good. But health can change quickly if one of us has a heart attack, stroke, or is diagnosed with chronic illness. As long as we are in good health we will stay in our home.

Personal safety is another factor. Virginia McDaniel, MS writes about this issue in her “Living Well” magazine article, “Moving to Senior Housing, When and Why.” According to McDaniel, unsafe driving is one of the main reasons seniors move. Driving may become a burden instead of a pleasure. “One may lose the ability to drive due to the slowing down of reflexes or due to vision problems,” she writes.

Older adults may leave stove burners on or forget to lock up for the night. My husband and I monitor each other and, fortunately, we’re still safe people.

Unit availability is the fourth factor on our list and it changes constantly. Management sends us letters regularly, telling us which units are available and their monthly cost. Two-bedroom units are scarce because most retirees want them. We don’t want to settle for a one-bedroom unit because we think we’ll feel like we’re living in a cracker box.

So we continue to live in our house, enjoy the garden, make necessary repairs, and keep our home market ready. We’ve already started to “lighten the load.” According to the Senior Seasons website, giving things to relatives and friends who appreciate them is rewarding. I gave my beloved piano to my daughter, and she loves it.

Many factors determine when you move. What are your factors? Which are the most important? Thinking about this now can simply your life and ease the transition to senior housing. In the meantime, enjoy your home, your neighborhood and, most of all, your life.

Senior Living Community Trends (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Senior living communities are relatively new, are responding to constantly changing demands and while even this industry is reacting to the current economic downturn, baby boomers are creating and responding to trends in a variety of ways. A recent survey conducted by Mather LifeWays with Life Services of Illinois in late 2008 revealed some interesting findings. This survey is “significant because there are few published studies that examine trends in programs, amenities, and environments among aging services providers,” states Mary Leary, President and CEO, Mather LifeWays.

Independent living is at the top of the list for most seniors and most are serious about technology. That means that senior living communities must offer state-of-the-art systems for computer savvy seniors. Those leaving the workforce today have become accustomed to and very adept at building their careers and a portion of their personal lives around computers. Seniors want services available that will allow them to maintain independence.

New models in Senior Living Communities
The Beacon Hill model, as described in American Association of Retired Persons Magazine is an innovative program that allows residents to stay in their homes and maintain their independence safely and comfortably. Beacon Hill Village in Boston is being embraced by communities with seniors across the nation because of its model as a full-service concierge program dedicated to linking older residents of the neighborhood with anything from a ride to the doctor’s office to house painting services to free lectures and exercise classes. Members must live in the neighborhood and pay an annual fee. The Beacon Hills Village program has sparked grassroots movements across the country.

“The New Retirement Survey” released in 2005 by Merrill Lynch focused on how baby boomers, who are quickly approaching retirement age, will have a noticeable impact on all aspects of senior living, including housing. In fact, because baby boomers will fundamentally reinvent retirement by living longer and remaining engaged and employed beyond age 65, the impact will influence all trends in senior living communities. The survey describes the “turning point”: 76% of boomers intend to keep working and earning after retiring from their current job and even exploring entirely new careers. This desire to continue working is motivated by earnings and by a desire for “continued mental stimulation and challenge which will motivate them to stay in the game.” Naturally, this finding supports the senior living community trend of a desire for further education. Visit the Bernard Osher Foundation to learn about the location of classes and opportunities for lifelong learning offered by this well-regarded foundation.

Trends can also be observed in surveys targeting the operators and owners of these communities. The Mather Lifeways survey describes trends in senior living communities that include wellness and lifelong learning options available as well as environmental considerations, such as green living standards. The survey also found that wireless technology is opening even more opportunities to pursue a wealth of knowledge. Currently, 22% of continuing care retirement communities are now offering Web-based education; however that number is expected to soar to 69% over the next four years, while wellness offerings, including classes and recreation, are projected to grow to 52%, up from 25%. Studies also reveal that 35% of senior living community providers are expected to observe “green” standards in new construction or renovation.

Another study, by Ziegler Capital Markets, queried senior living community owners, explores senior living community trends from a marketing standpoint. The majority of respondents stated that their multi-site organizations have been impacted by the current downturn in the economy. When asked how they intend to react, most said they will offer a variety of discounts on monthly service and entrance fees, which will naturally be attractive to those considering a senior living community. Marketing programs are also focusing more on what their community can offer in response to trends in senior living communities.

Technology, independence, education, health and environmental concerns will undoubtedly keep the newest members of the senior population occupied, challenged and productive for many years.

Trends in Assisted Living (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Assisted living communities have become increasingly dedicated to innovation and an emphasis on hospitality in order to remain competitive during challenging economic times. Understanding the resulting assisted living trends will be helpful to families that are in the process of exploring the various options available for aging loved ones.

Assisted Living Trend #1: Wellness Programs to Enhance & Promote a Healthy Lifestyle

In 2009, the age of residents moving into assisted facilities nationwide averages 84.6 years. As seniors continue to wait longer and longer to leave their homes and move into senior living communities, the industry seeks to extend their length of stay by promoting health and wellness among their residents. Nearly every major competitor has developed a multi-dimensional program to include a variety of exercise classes and/or access to neighborhood fitness clubs, healthy meal options as well as spiritual and educational opportunities. Amenities and services that reflect this emphasis on wellness include the availability of on-site massage therapy, exercise equipment made specifically for seniors, computer training with specialized equipment and large screens as well as flexible hours for dining to accommodate medical appointments and activities. The success of such programs improves the general health and well-being of current residents and attracts new residents who are increasingly dedicated to maintaining their active lifestyles.

Assisted Living Trend #2: Larger Apartments and Increased Apartment Amenities

Between 2006 and 2009, the number of apartments in assisted facilities has decreased from a nationwide average of 63 to 54. This statistic reflects a trend in combining two apartments in order to accommodate residents who prefer larger living spaces. Whereas studios used to be the most common type of assisted living apartment, one-bedroom units are now more preferable and allow residents to keep more of their furniture and belongings that make their new apartment feel like home. In addition, many couples currently moving into assisted facilities prefer separate bedrooms for improved sleeping. Amenities frequently include spacious walk-in closets, 9-foot ceilings, balconies and/or patios to accommodate pet owners as well as enhanced kitchenettes with microwaves and small refrigerators.

Assisted Living Trend #3: Increased Flexibility in Financing Assisted Living

In light of current economic conditions, an increasing number of assisted communities are participating in Medicaid. According to a collaborative research project conducted in 2009 by the Assisted Living Federation of America, nearly half of responding assisted care providers have licensed up to 25% of their apartments for Medicaid. Other communities that may not accept Medicaid are partnering with companies that provide financing options such as a line of credit to facilitate move-ins prior to home sales. These types of options are very helpful to seniors who are reliant on the equity in their homes in order to afford assisted care. Given the number of veterans currently moving in to assisted facilities, providers are also dedicated to publicizing and promoting the Veteran’s Aid & Attendance program. For more information about eligibility requirements for this program, visit the Veteran Aid website. Finally, it’s never been a better time to ask assisted living communities about waiving entrance fees, locking in current rates and receiving assistance with moving expenses!

Finding an Assisted Living Facility Alternative for Your Loved One – Home Care Solutions (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

The following information is available for individuals who are in the process of making a decision about home care or an alternative to assisted living facility living. If your loved one has decided he or she would prefer to remain in the comfort of their own home rather than an elderly living facility, take the time to decide the best in senior care option for your loved one; it’s important to thoroughly research any professional in senior home care provider who will be visiting your home on a regular schedule.

If you’ve decided on home care as an alternative to assisted living facilities, the following information is important to consider before starting your search. First determine which type of services you or your loved one will need. It may be best to consult a physician or hospital discharge planner for assistance in evaluating your loved one’s special needs and care requirements. After acquiring the names of several service providers, take the time to consider their offered services and reputations. Here are a variety of questions to ask senior care providers and other individuals concerning the track record and history of an elderly living facility alternative care provider:

 

  • How long have you been in business as a provider of home care services?
  • How do you select and train your employees?
  • Do you provide nurses and/or therapists who evaluate patient home care needs?
  • Who supervises the provision of care?
  • How do you involve or include the patient and his or her family in care plan development?
  • How do you bill for services?
  • What procedures are in place in case of emergency?
  • How is patient confidentiality handled?
  • Can the home care provider supply a list of references?

 

Before choosing your senior living facility alternative and settling into a home care plan that works for you, remember that a little initial research can go a long way towards making the patient/senior care provider relationship beneficial to all.

An Alternative to Assisted Living Facilities: Assisted Living Care

You want your parent, friend, or loved one to enjoy their freedom and independence for as long as possible, and remain comfortable in their own household. As an alternative to elderly living facilities, home care is becoming a popular choice for seniors, as it enables them to remain in the safety and comfort of their own home, and relieves care giving duties from relatives and family members. Often times, your loved one may need help with activities or tasks that go overlooked-such as opening jars, driving, maintaining a clean household, and bathing. An alternative to assisted living facilities, home care provides support for those in need with personal care and daily activities and can provide part-time, full time, and as-needed support.

However, it’s important to understand that senior living caregivers do not always provide health-related services. Home health providers offer medical care, such as trained nurses or physical therapy services for seniors. Assisted living caregivers assist with non-medical senior care.

As your parents age they may require assistance, but assisted living care enables your parent or loved one to continue living independently for as long as possible.

Consider assisted living care as an alternative to assisted living facilities. Your loved one may only need care for a few hours a day, but their quality of life can improve significantly with in-home assistance. Although this decision may be emotional and challenging, it’s sometimes necessary to keep your loved ones safe, cared for, and comfortable.

What Is Assisted Living? The Basics of a Popular Senior Living Option (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

What Is Assisted Living?

With all the different types of senior living available today it’s difficult to understand the differences between them and even more difficult to choose the right one for you or a loved one. Adding to this confusion is different services not only at different facilities, but even to two people at the same facility!

The reason for the wide range of services is residents each get the amount of personal care and support that they need while maintaining a certain level of independence. They are typically a good choice if you need more personal care than you can get at home, but you don’t need the constant supervision of a nursing home.

So if you or a loved one find that you’re having trouble with everyday tasks but still want to maintain your independence this living option may be right for you. You can get the support you need while keeping as much of your independence as you’d like.

What Services Are Provided?

Assisted living is a good option for seniors who want or need aid with some of their daily living activities like showering, grooming, cooking meals or help getting to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Housekeeping, traveling to appointments are also common and some facilities also assist with medication. Many quality facilities will help develop a customized plan that meets all special needs while giving residents the freedom to do what they want to on their own.

Is It The Same Thing As A Nursing Home?

No, not exactly. They do offer many of the same services but a nursing home provides 24 hour supervision and medical care for residents. In an assisted living community 24 hour service is available, but privacy and independence is encouraged. Many offer private and apartment style housing, some even have their own kitchens. Almost all facilities have group dining and areas for social and recreational activities.

Assisted Living And Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)

A home can be part of a continuing care retirement community (CCRC). These CCRC communities are long-term living solutions for seniors, usually in a single location. In the beginning, seniors living at a CCRC enjoy independent retirement living. As residents get older and begin needing assistance they receive the help they need as they need it. This continues until they need full-time supervision and transition into a full nursing home environment providing the resident with all the senior services they’ll need for their entire life.

Paying For Assisted Living

Most people pay for their care with private funds but in some cases exceptions are made. There are some insurance policies that offer long-term care that cover assisted living facilities that are licensed. Check your insurance policy to see if you are covered. Medicaid assistance is available to help pay for the costs of living for those who qualify.

Is Assisted Living The Right Choice For You Or Loved One?

Deciding to move into a facility and leaving the home that you’re familiar with can be difficult. Even if you’re anticipating the benefits of assisted living; security, assistance, and social perks that come with it, you have to also consider the impact that it has for your family.

The Need for Senior Living Jobs (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

For people currently looking at different career options, there are several things that you need to weigh. You need to pursue a career that you will thoroughly enjoy doing, that will allow you to help people, and that will pay you a decent amount of money. Senior living jobs are fall under all those categories, and they are in very high demand. There is expected to be a shortage of those working in the elderly healthcare industry, making it something that high school and college students should consider.

There are plenty of different types of senior living jobs, some that don’t require any schooling after high school, to those that require a Masters degree or a Doctorate degree. In other words, you can essentially decide how much time you want to spend in school and choose your career helping seniors accordingly. Or, you can go to convalescent homes and apartments, as well as assisted living communities, and volunteer. You will be able to get a lot of experience working with the elderly, and they will enjoy the company quite a bit.

One of the best parts of working with the elderly, in fact, is how much that they enjoy the company of others. There are very few industries quite like the senior healthcare industry in that respect. The people that you are helping will be so happy to see you and so thankful for you every day. If that isn’t enough to help sway your decision though, you will be happy to learn that the average salary of those in the senior living industry is between $40,000 and $60,000. That is not a bad amount of money to make at all, especially in the current economy, where jobs are scarce.

The other benefit to senior living jobs is the fact that you will be able to make your own schedule. Since there is a need for people working every hour of every day, that gives you a lot of flexibility with regards to when you will work. If you are someone that does not like the idea of working Monday through Friday from eight in the morning until five at night, then this is definitely something you should think about. In the end, you will find the senior healthcare industry to be a very rewarding road to go down.

Senior Living Services: Caring for the Elderly and Easing the Pressure Off the Sandwich Generation (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Today, this rapidly expanding population is probably the largest it has ever been. Traditionally, women are a disproportionately large percentage of the caregivers. According, to “The Shriver Report: A Woman’s Nation Takes On Alzheimer’s,” women account for 65% of the Alzheimer’s population and up to three-fifths of Alzheimer patient caregivers.

The term “sandwich generation” was coined by Dorothy Miller in 1981 and refers to the group of adults whose dependents include both their own children and their aging parents.

Frequently adults, especially women, are caring for their elderly parents while simultaneously raising tweens and teenagers. Pulled in two opposite directions, it may often seem overwhelming and as though both parents and children are not getting what they need. Thus, many caregivers eventually seek out either a home health aide or senior care facility as their loved ones’ needs become more than they are equipped to handle.

Home health agencies partner an aide with an elderly patient. Home healthcare is ideal for clients who want to keep either themselves or their loved ones at home with family. Depending on a patient’s needs, the aide may be required to work either during the day or night, or live with the client for 5-6 days at a time. These aides may offer both companionship as well as custodial and medical care, helping with personal hygiene, daily medications, meals, etc. In home healthcare is minimally disruptive to a patient’s routine, allowing him or her to remain in an environment in which she is familiar. This service allows the elderly to either maintain their own residences or continue living with their families, which may actually preserve their mental and emotional health. Dementia patients, for example, benefit from a consistent environment as it helps stave off the disease’s progression. Medicare generally only pays for a small portion of home healthcare; the rest of the cost is covered by private insurance and funds.

Senior assisted living facilities allow residents to maintain some independence within a controlled environment. Seniors may bring their own furniture and other mementos from home. Generally these residences consist of little apartments that are outfitted with kitchenettes, an environment that enables residents to host family and friends in a more private setting. Main meals are generally served at set times in a large dining area and more individual care is available to those who need it. Certain senior assisted living facilities are authorized to dispense medication or reminders to take medication.

Assisted living centers also offer outings and other day trips for seniors who are able to participate. Senior assisted living is a compromise between a nursing home, which has more comprehensive medical care, and living completely autonomously. Although assisted living is normally paid from private funds and assets, certain long term insurance policies will cover licensed assisted living facilities. A few states offer Medicaid funds and waivers to help foot the bill. Assisted living is regulated by the state, so policies and practices vary.

Nursing homes offer the most extensive care, providing full custodial and medical care. For the elderly who require consistent, round the clock medical attention, this choice can be a viable option. Nursing homes provide occupational and physical therapy. Some nursing homes also offer physical rehabilitation programs, which are required after a major procedures, such as hip surgery. For sufferers of advanced dementia, nursing homes provide the round-the-clock care and attention they require.

Although nursing homes cost more due to the level of care they provide, they are also more frequently covered by Medicaid and Medicare. Some nursing home facilities have the air of a hospital and are run like one. Others try to be less austere and more homey and offer many of the same amenities as assisted living facilities.

Choosing the right solution to meet the needs of the elderly is a laborious process that requires individual case-by-case assessment. At home care, assisted living centers, and nursing homes all have their strengths and weaknesses. Each serves a dual purpose: to care for an aging population and ease the burden for familial caretakers. These services provide patients and their families with peace of mind.

Senior Housing Options Explained (Nevada Senior Guide)

August 22, 2011 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Articles 

Deciding to move to a senior retirement community is one of the biggest decisions you make. It can be an exciting time, but it can also cause some confusion when it comes to choosing which type of community is best for you or your loved one. People have different needs. Living options are not “one size fits all.”
To help you find the best fit, this article explains the main types of senior retirement options, including independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing, memory care and continuing care retirement communities.

Independent Living

Independent living facilities are apartment style homes that allow a person to maintain complete autonomy. This type of facility is a very good option for those that can still do everything for themselves but need contact with other people – and less isolation than living at home alone. Senior independent living facilities usually have on site staff members that provide minimal supervision. Independent living facilities also offer activities and services for residents, ranging from tennis and swimming to fine dining and hair salons.

Assisted Living

Assisted living facilities are designed to help those that have difficulty caring for themselves to the extent that they can no longer live in their own home. These facilities are staffed 24 hours a day. Employees are trained to assist residents with their needs and provide supervision. A typical person living in an assisted living facility may need help managing medication, bathing, or getting dressed. While assisted living provides residents with assistance with the activities of daily living, they do not provide round-the-clock skilled nursing services.

Skilled Nursing Centers

For round-the-clock medical supervision, Skilled Nursing is the way to go. Skilled Nursing facilities are designed to house and assist individuals who have health conditions that require constant monitoring and the availability of medical personnel. Because of the high level of monitoring that skilled nursing facilities provide, they are staffed with medical personnel 24 hours a day. Skilled nursing facilities provide an invaluable service to those that have medical problems that require constant medical monitoring and/or high levels of assistance.

Senior Memory Care Communities

Caring for those who have dementia requires special expertise. Alzheimer’s and dementia care communities represent a special form of assisted living, with housing, supportive services and care to those who have varying levels of dementia. Staff members are carefully selected and trained to understand and manage the unique challenges associated with dementia care. Physical and behavioral issues as well as life history are key factors in creating daily routines and service plans for residents. Memory Support Centers provides daily structure seven days per week to help maintain the resident’s abilities and encourage the use of their remaining skills.

Continuing Care Retirement Communities

Continuing Care Retirement Communities, or CCRCs, provide a place where seniors can live, socialize and receive they care they need, while knowing that they can remain in the same community should their care needs change in the future.

A CCRC setting is one that will be able to accommodate you or your family member’s needs now, as well as in the future – all in the same community. If their need for care increases, a person who chooses a CCRC will be able to remain in the same community setting, but get Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing or Dementia care, while keeping the same neighbors and living in a familiar setting.

This means that the ideal living situation is one that can provide for an individual’s current and future needs while allowing him to maintain as much of his independence as possible.

“Seniors are a unique group because they have so many needs that aren’t met as easily as those of the younger generations,” Mathis stated. “They are the largest percentage of our country’s population and are always looking for resources and good deals, no matter what their income level. The directory is also useful to baby boomers who can use it to find resources for their aging parents.”

“I do not know of any other advertisement that gives you so much for the price and not only produces results, but also has a staff that goes out of its way to help their advertisers through education and networking. Megan and her staff WANT you to be successful. To not advertise in Nevada Senior Guide is like giving your competition referrals.”  – Mark A.

About Life Care

Your family is special with its deep bonds and unique relationships. Facing a dramatic change – such as moving a loved one into assisted living or a nursing home – is an unsettling prospect for most people. Life Care Centers have helped families for decades to work through the difficult decisions about how best to care for their loved ones. We understand how trying it is to choose nursing home care for your loved one, and how most struggling caretakers feel there is no other choice.

That’s why we’re here.

We want those special members of your family to become equally special members of ours. We want to relieve the anxiety and frustration you may be experiencing by providing a nursing home community of constant support, attention and personalized care. Above all, we want to serve each person entrusted to us with compassion, dignity, purpose and respect.

That’s not just our goal. It’s our privilege.

Services

At Life Care Centers of America, we take elderly care very seriously. That’s why we offer residents a wide range of living arrangements and amenities, services and care. From home assisted living to retirement living to nursing homes – and even campuses that offer all three in a continuum of care – Life Care has the experience, expertise, and dedication to provide a full scope of specialty services.

Whether your needs include Alzheimer’s care, in-home nursing care, rehabilitation or recovery help, or any of a number of other specialty services, Life Care will be there, with all the support, education, and commitment you and your loved one need.

Rehabilitation

Life can deliver some unexpected twists: accidents, sudden illnesses or emergency surgeries can happen when you least expect them. And in the aftermath of such events, your energy is focused primarily on recovery—trying to also find the best available resources for help can be pretty challenging.

At Life Care, we understand the intense desire to recuperate and get back to normal as quickly as possible. But serious illness or trauma can sometimes force you to relearn even basic functions. The struggle to regain those lost capabilities while still recovering is frustrating and often overwhelming.

That’s when our teams of experts can make an overwhelming difference. Our skilled therapy services can hasten your recovery, help return lost skills and bring back strength and mobility. Our caring professionals work tirelessly with our residents not only in physical areas, but also by constantly supporting and encouraging them emotionally.

We believe our residents are the extraordinary people who refuse to allow temporary setbacks or disabilities to affect them permanently. Their determination and effort become invaluable tools in the rehabilitation process.

And it is our greatest privilege to partner with them—or you, or your loved one—during recovery … and become your strongest advocates in the road to reclaiming total wellness.

Life Care Centers of America

The sun setting is no less beautiful that the sun rising.

Imagine living in a beautiful, peaceful environment, surrounded by friends and activities.

Caring for Life…
Since 1970, Life Care Centers of America has been providing unequaled nursing care and assisted living service. Our continuum of care campuses give our residents an individual care plan through various levels of care. But it\’s our commitment to quality and professionalism that makes us second to none.

The Sunrise Difference

There’s no secret to Sunrise Senior Living’s success. Our resident-centered approach allows Sunrise seniors to maintain independence and dignity, even as their needs change.

Sunrise was founded to create senior living that champions quality of life — a mission that has helped to completely redefine senior care in the U.S. We believe that no two people are alike and that no two residents require the same service. Sunrise residents benefit from this principle through the individually tailored care delivered by our team members every day.

Our Story

Our approach to providing the best possible lifestyle for each resident has set Sunrise apart for more than 30 years, and has helped us to become an experienced and innovative provider of senior living services. The Sunrise Story shares how Founders Paul and Terry Klaassen helped transform traditional views on elder care through their belief in individualized, resident-centered care.

Rocking Chairs

The Sunrise Signature Experience

From our room layouts and interior decor to our designated care managers and community pets, Sunrise takes great care to incorporate details that enhance quality of life for seniors. Learn more about Sunrise Senior Living’s holistic approach to creating a warm and welcoming environment through the The Sunrise Signature Experience.

Sunrise Signature Dining

The Sunrise Signature Dining Program is designed for the unique nutritional needs of older adults. Our community chefs incorporate fresh, flavorful ingredients into traditional, favorite recipes and tastes from around the world. Sunrise’s Assisted Living, Independent Living, Memory Care and Short-Term Stay residents all enjoy three delicious, well-balanced meals served daily featuring a variety of menu choices and snacks available throughout the day.
