  • Improving the Quality of Life for Seniors - Waverly Heights Ltd.
    evident that they improve the quality of life for residents and that is what we strive to do said Aurora Crew the director of therapeutic recreation at the Waverly Heights Health Care Center in Gladwyne PA Types of Therapeutic Activities It s amazing to watch the change happen before your eyes All the residents are at different levels of functionality and have different goals but therapeutic recreation activities can help them all at the same time Music Therapy Music therapy can be executed in many different ways depending on what the therapist wants participants to get out of the session In some cases name that tune helps increase or maintain cognitive functioning and memory The lungs are exercised when participants actively sing This increases oxygen flow to the brain which in turn decreases the bad stress hormone cortisol providing a non invasive way to relieve stress The use of rhythmic instruments in music therapy helps maintain and rehabilitate fine and gross motor skills positively impacting the day to day life of the residents Art Programming Art programming is another way to help residents with motor skills as they concentrate their efforts on projects like jewelry making and seasonal crafts The self expression element of these art activities helps seniors increase awareness and handle internal conflicts Participating in art can increase memory function and assist in coping with stress It can also be used as a means of communication Pet Therapy Pet therapy is a unique way to tap into feelings instincts and memories of seniors Therapeutic recreation programs often partner with volunteer groups or shelters that can provide residents the chance to interact with animals they may have had growing up For elderly residents the simple act of petting an animal can produce an increased sense of self worth and

    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 with C C R C s that s resulted in weaker trust said Katherine C Pearson a professor at the Dickinson School of Law of Pennsylvania State University who has testified before Congress on the issue You need to visit several facilities talk to residents look at past cost increases and five years of financial records Professor Pearson who talks with continuing care community residents around the country said there was no one rule of thumb to use when evaluating these communities A prospective resident generally wants a community that is active and engaged and supports healthy living she said But given the magnitude of the decision after all it is often the last major purchase someone will ever make it deserves very careful consideration Get as much financial information as you can she said This is not an impulse buy Contract review is a must ideally with an accountant lawyer and financial consultant How does a resident qualify for a refund Most communities apply a prorated formula If someone doesn t like a community what is the grace period to receive all of the money back How is the company s business model going to be sustained for decades as residents need more care When visiting a continuing care retirement community talk with residents and the staff Ask about food services and health care support and explore the entire facility not just the more spacious and inviting independent living units Is a dietitian on staff Is the community well maintained Are a hospital and other amenities nearby Do residents seem happy What happens if someone needs a higher level of care What about security Are the recreational activities appealing It s wise to compare several places and check with state agencies to see if there are any complaints Go to local senior centers to see if they have heard anything about the facilities Since there s no government agency clearinghouse on C C R C reviews unfortunately you may have to rely upon anecdotal information Dr Shapiro said CARF International is an organization that accredits providers The National Continuing Care Residents Association also has some useful information from those who live in continuing care communities and leads campaigns on certain issues Continuing care communities are not for everybody But by planning ahead for the myriad challenges of aging many older people and their families are able to enjoy their final years of life more fully Link to Article

Care Assistant by Geralyn Magan Published On Jan 21 2016 Americans may be warming up to the idea of using unmanned aerial vehicles or drones to deliver Amazon packages or take pictures of unreachable places like remote mountain ranges or hurricane decimated landscapes But what about using indoor drones to help older people get their hands on a bottle of medicine
