  • Get In The Zone - Waverly Heights Ltd.
    a second generation Lebanese American is an accomplished percussionist He started playing at the age of eight at his family s renowned Middle East Restaurant where live authentic music and dance from the middle east was performed nightly for 40 years For his demonstration at Waverly Joe brought along a collection of 16 drums including the Tarabuka an Egyptian drum whose design goes back at least 4000 years into the pre dawn of history Joe is a very engaging charismatic individual whose enthusiasm for his subject is infectious He immediately got his audience involved letting each person select a drum Instead of a lot of verbiage about percussion theory he started right out beating a pattern on his drum asking the audience to repeat it He then added a second pattern and a third The challenge was to put them all together in the end a sort of kinetic trick whereby you get the rhythm organically Not easy and certainly requiring at the outset extreme concentration Think of exercise for aging brain synapses What has all this to do with meditation Joe speaks of getting in the zone where a group of musicians and or participants get so involved with

  • The Everything-in-One Promise of a Continuing Care Community - Waverly Heights Ltd.
    80 percent of continuing care communities are run by nonprofit religious and fraternal groups it s difficult to compare facilities side by side since there is no national government sponsored rating system There are nearly 2 000 continuing care retirement communities across the United States according to LeadingAge a trade association that represents the communities They are growing in number again after being pummeled by the housing collapse Still they are vastly outnumbered by nearly 16 000 traditional nursing homes There are different ways to finance a stay in a continuing care retirement community The majority require a buy in or large lump sum entrance fee for a Life Care contract mostly as a financial reserve for potential future care Often part of the upfront payment is refunded to the estate after the resident dies Such facilities usually charge additional monthly fees which cover food maintenance cleaning and other basic services Health care or home care expenses are also extra sometimes paid for out of the deposit Advertisement Continue reading the main story Advertisement Continue reading the main story Another model fee for service does not require a lump sum buy in although these facilities may require rental deposits They also cover essential services like room and board and may hire outside contractors for home care And most communities offer some form of benevolence care for those who run out of money Keep in mind that few of these contracts involve direct conventional purchase of a housing unit In most cases the resident buys only the lifetime right to live in a community take advantage of its range of amenities and services and receive care there The units generally are not bought and sold on the open market The average buy in amount is about 250 000 according to Stephen Maag director of residential communities for LeadingAge Entrance fees have a direct relationship to local housing market prices he said which means residents usually pay much more to join in the Northeast and on the West Coast than in the South and Midwest Thirty states have regulations that govern continuing care retirement communities But the independent living sections rarely have rigorous oversight The nursing homes in some C C R C s are not Medicaid certified said Dr Stuart Shapiro a former chief executive of the Pennsylvania Health Care Association a group that promotes long term care for the state s elderly and disabled Pennsylvania has the most continuing care retirement communities in the country It s not clear what C C R C s have to disclose Dr Shapiro said With the independent living part of C C R C s there s virtually no regulation What happens if a facility goes bankrupt as about 20 companies have done in the last 15 years While it s rare for anyone to be evicted usually a new company takes over a failed facility there is a continuing problem with financial disclosure according to experts There s a lack of transparency
