Alzheimer’s disease is often accompanied by behavioral and psychological symptoms<br />

that are not typical to other diseases. Therefore, the unique challenges for paid and<br />

unpaid caregivers require quality education, training and information in order to ensure<br />

dignity for the older adult and a quality life for both the caregiver and patient. The UAMS<br />

Schmieding Caregiver Training Program provides specific programs for both paid and<br />

unpaid caregivers for Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.<br />

Paid caregivers can take the Alzheimer’s and dementia (AD) course that provides<br />

information and practical tips on managing behaviors such as wandering and resistance<br />

to daily hygiene. This course satisfies AR Code 21-1-701 et seq and Arkansas Department<br />

of Human Services Nursing Assistant Training Program commonly referred to as the<br />

“Barbara Broyles Alzheimer and Dementia Training.”<br />

Unpaid caregivers can attend free dementia family caregiver workshops that provide an<br />

overview of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease along with topics such as communication<br />

techniques, understanding behaviors, nutrition, caregiver respect, maintaining good<br />

quality of care and dignity for the older adult.<br />

A UAMS Schmieding Caregiver Training program instructor provides tips that<br />

contribute to maintaining respect, dignity and quality of life for the person living<br />

with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease during a free Family Caregiver Workshop.<br />

Arkansans, Alzheimer’s<br />

and no cure in sight<br />

by Sajni Kumpuris<br />

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, Alzheimer’s disease is the most expensive<br />

disease in the United States with the estimated cost for 2016 at $236 billion and is<br />

anticipated to rise to a trillion dollars by 2050. Alzheimer’s and related dementia care<br />

is provided by more than 15 million caregivers with an estimated 18.1 billion hours of<br />

unpaid care valued at over $221 billion. In the United States, one in three seniors will<br />

die from Alzheimer’s or related dementias, a 68 percent increase since 2000. (Alz.org)<br />

With no cure in sight, the immense financial, emotional and physical nature of this<br />

disease must be faced by Arkansans with great care and urgency.<br />

Arkansas ranks ninth in the percentage of population over age 65, with half of those<br />

living in rural Arkansas with inadequate medical resources. Of the 75 counties in our<br />

state, 22 have no hospital and 46 have only one hospital. In addition, 14 percent of<br />

Arkansans 60 years and older are living below the poverty level. (HPSAs) (HRSA website<br />

11/4/2014)<br />

UAMS also offers a new tour entitled Alzheimer’s/Dementia: Take a Walk in Their Shoes.<br />

This experience allows individuals to experience the physical and sensory disorders<br />

that are common in persons with Alzheimer’s disease allowing for greater empathy and<br />

understanding. This program can be requested for on-location training in nursing homes,<br />

communities of faith groups, or in collaboration with other senior events.<br />

Since its inception, more than 6,200 people have attended Schmieding classes, 3,274<br />

have graduated with certificates, and workshops have been presented to 1,238 family<br />

members.<br />

These programs are provided on location and at seven regional Centers on Aging located<br />

throughout the state including, Jonesboro, Pine Bluff, Texarkana, Fort Smith, Hot Springs,<br />

El Dorado, as well as the UAMS Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging in Little Rock.<br />

Arkansas is the first to offer this type of training to caregivers statewide, and the UAMS<br />

Schmieding program has made it a national leader in caregiver training. Developed in<br />

2002, the program was replicated throughout Arkansas thanks to a generous donation<br />

from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation to the UAMS Arkansas Aging Initiative program.<br />

Since 2009, the foundation has provided more than $20 million dollars to the university<br />

to support operation of the programs in Arkansas.<br />

G<br />

“<br />

Forty-six.<br />

Forty-seven.<br />

whispered Gladys to herself<br />

Forty-eight,”<br />

as she<br />

counted the roses on her rosebush.<br />

ladys had been sitting in her<br />

outdoor rocking chair for more<br />

than three hours, watching the birds<br />

and just counting flowers. She was<br />

severely depressed, and had not slept<br />

much in five days. Her appetite had<br />

virtually gone away, and she was no<br />

longer responding to her friends or<br />

relatives who tried to call her to offer<br />

their condolences and support. Gladys<br />

lost her husband to cancer just 23<br />

days ago, and she was struggling to<br />

cope with a life without him.<br />

Gladys was born in 1934, and was the<br />

oldest of 6 children. She spent many of<br />

her early years helping her mother with<br />

her siblings. Her father worked the<br />

family farm, and took a second job at<br />

the local hardware store in town when<br />

Gladys was 11. us, she soon became<br />

a surrogate mother to her siblings, and<br />

they became dependent on her for<br />

many of life's tasks. Yet Gladys still<br />

managed to make good grades in<br />

school, excelled in math, and was on<br />

her way to be the first in her family to<br />

attend college.<br />

Instead, Gladys married at age 17 and<br />

moved many times during her adult life.<br />

Her husband was a salesman, but they<br />

fell on hard times in the 60's and Gladys<br />

was forced to take some work to help<br />

make ends meet. She and her husband<br />

had 4 children, one of whom had<br />

developmental challenges that made<br />

school very challenging — especially<br />

when the family relocated.<br />

Nevertheless, Gladys lived a very full<br />

life. But it was challenging for many<br />

years as she carried the weight of<br />

balancing a family with a husband who<br />

was on the road a great deal. She always<br />

felt supported by her husband, as she<br />

depended upon him for many things.<br />

Last year, her oldest son was killed in a<br />

car accident, and her daughter recently<br />

announced she was going through a<br />

divorce with 3 children of her own. And<br />

now the death of her husband of 64<br />

years was almost too much for Gladys<br />

to bear.<br />

Luckily, Gladys's son Glenn and his wife<br />

came by to visit her this particular day.<br />

Glenn could see that his mother was<br />

not well. She barely looked at him when<br />

he arrived, and did not respond to all<br />

his questions. Glenn noticed her<br />

refrigerator had few items in it, and<br />

what was remaining was turning to<br />

mold. It was clear she wasn't eating<br />

much, if at all.<br />

Glenn knew his mother needed a good<br />

deal of help and he called e<br />

BridgeWay on that Sunday afternoon to<br />

reach out.<br />

Even though Gladys lived 45 minutes<br />

from the hospital, they were able to<br />

schedule an assessment for that very<br />

day. Glenn drove her to the facility and<br />

pulled right up to the front door of<br />

CedarStone, the admissions building<br />

on campus. Gladys was inside and<br />

being assessed within a few minutes of<br />

her arrival.<br />

Gladys was admitted to the newly<br />

constructed senior care unit that was<br />

opened in September 2015. She was<br />

able to sleep in a room near the nurses<br />

station, and be a short distance from<br />

the spacious dayroom. From that<br />

dayroom, Gladys could see the plethora<br />

of trees and the colorful flowers<br />

growing outside. She was quite the<br />

gardener at home before her life was<br />

changed by her husband's death.<br />

While at the Senior Unit, she met others<br />

her age, some of whom had also<br />

recently lost loved ones. She ate dinner<br />

with others, and began to socialize both<br />

at dinnertime and in group. And she<br />

was stabilized on medications by her<br />

psychiatrist who specializes in<br />

psychiatric care for older adults.<br />

Gladys improved markedly<br />

and was discharged after<br />

9 days in the program.<br />

Since her discharge,<br />

she has followed<br />

up with a<br />

psychiatrist<br />

to remain<br />

stabilized.<br />

In an even bolder step, she made the<br />

decision to move into a retirement<br />

community where she is able socialize<br />

and make friends. “I know that I need<br />

people around me to comfort me, to cry<br />

with me, to talk with me,” Gladys wrote<br />

in her letter addressed to the staff at<br />

e BridgeWay. She continued in her<br />

letter, “I know about loss because I lived<br />

it, but I now know how to live life<br />

because I almost lost it. I am better<br />

because of you, and I thank you.”<br />

Months after her treatment at e<br />

BridgeWay, Gladys sees her family often<br />

and has found a new family to help her<br />

cope. She still misses her husband and<br />

the home they built 45 years ago. But<br />

Gladys sought the help she needed and<br />

is building a new life for herself. n<br />

New Sensor<br />

Technology<br />

Brings Best<br />

Fit to Senior<br />

Prosthesis<br />

Wearers<br />

by Judy Otto<br />

When one considers that a lower limb prosthesis bears 100% of the body’s weight<br />

while walking, it is not surprising that achieving a perfect fit of the prosthetic socket<br />

to the wearer’s leg is essential. Even small irregularities and mismatches in that fit<br />

can cause discomfort, skin irritation or tissue damage from the friction due to shifting and<br />

slippage. Now, wearers of lower limb prostheses have reason to rejoice, with the advent of a<br />

new scanner that allows a fit as close to perfect as possible.<br />

Prosthetic technology has made amazing strides, especially over the last two decades, as<br />

improved methods of capturing the three-dimensional features of an amputee’s residual<br />

limb have been developed. Every residual limb is different, with a bony structure and surface<br />

topography that must be matched as closely as possible within the socket of its prosthesis to be<br />

comfortable.<br />

The recent introduction of the Omega ® Structure Sensor offers prosthesis an opportunity<br />

to capture three-dimensional shapes in greater detail than ever before. Extremely compact,<br />

lightweight, and portable, the device can be attached to an iPad and used to scan a person’s<br />

residual limb in seconds.<br />

Designed for capturing detail, the sensor’s scanned image of the leg can then be used by a<br />

CAD (computer-aided drafting) system to design an exceptionally detailed and accurate socket<br />

shape to fit the limb more intimately.<br />

Created by WillowWood®, and partnered with a custom-designed app, the Structure Sensor is<br />

the first 3D sensor for mobile devices to be used in the orthotic and prosthetic industry. It uses<br />

infrared structure light to capture an object which is then generated by the scan app as a 3D<br />

image onscreen.<br />

Jason Eddy, Licensed Prosthetist-Orthotist, Orthotic Fitter, and<br />

BOC Prosthetist for Snell Prosthetic & Orthotic Laboratory in<br />

Hot Springs, explained that because the sensor is able to take<br />

scans that capture such exceptionally accurate detail, it has<br />

great potential for other applications that may benefit seniors.<br />

“Although we’re using it primarily for below-knee and aboveknee<br />

prosthetic applications, there’s certainly a future benefit to<br />

be derived from using the sensor to create some orthotics, such<br />

as cranial reshaping orthoses and custom knee braces with<br />

a much faster turnaround time. It can be used to scan virtually<br />

anything – and at a lower cost than a traditional scanner,”<br />

Eddy noted, “so it’s not only more accurate, it’s efficient and<br />

economical from a technical perspective.”<br />

Frank Snell, CPO, FAAOP scans Ron<br />

Walter’s residual limb using the Omega ®<br />

Structure Scanner. The detailed scanned<br />

image will be input into Snell Laboratory’s<br />

CAD system to fabricate an exceptionally<br />

accurate prosthetic socket.<br />

The sensor is placed over an iPad’s camera unit, and the<br />

combined iPad-plus-scanner unit can be passed around any three-dimensional object (such<br />

as a residual limb), taking multiple photos that it is able to blend seamlessly into an extremely<br />

accurate three-dimensional image.<br />

“Previous scanners would take four pictures and overlay them, with less detail at the ‘corner’ seams<br />

– leaving some additional work for the prosthetist to do in order to ensure an accurate customized fit.<br />

The Structure Sensor captures so much detail that the socket it designs should provide total contact –<br />

100% all over,” Eddy reported,“ – without significant hand modifications.”<br />

One of the problem areas where below-knee prosthesis-wearers<br />

often experience discomfort is around the knee. The bony shape of<br />

the knee can vary greatly between individuals, and has proved difficult<br />

to capture by other methods, Eddy noted. Often, the fabricated socket<br />

would have to be manually heat adjusted to provide a comfortable fit<br />

at that weight-bearing point on the residual limb. An accurate initial<br />

capture of the natural shape eliminates the need for such adjustments.<br />

Eddy has already put the new technology to work on behalf of<br />

several prosthetic patients, and claims that there is a unanimous<br />

consensus: “They’re really, really pleased!” he said. “They are<br />

enjoying a lot better quality fit, because of the greater detail the<br />

sensor is able to pick up.”<br />

Eddy happily offers demonstrations of the scanner’s prowess<br />

and strongly recommends that prosthesis-wearers who are<br />

experiencing discomfort should schedule an assessment<br />

visit with their prosthetist, and ask for a Structure Sensor scan, if<br />

available.<br />

Rental<br />

Assistance for<br />

Low Income<br />

Seniors Ages<br />

62 and older<br />

BY ELIZABETH LOPEZ<br />

One of the most fundamental needs of very low income elderly nationwide is<br />

safe, decent, affordable housing with supportive services. HUD helps private<br />

apartment owners, such as the non-profit Christopher Homes of Arkansas,<br />

offer reduced rents to low-income elderly and disabled. You can go to the<br />

hud.gov website to search for private subsidized apartments in the U.S.<br />

Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about the<br />

privately owned subsidized senior housing programs.<br />

What are HUD 202 eligibility requirements for moving into an apartment? For the Project<br />

Rental Assistance Contract (PRAC established in 1991) apartments, occupancy is open to<br />

very low-income households which include at least one person 62 years or older.<br />

For the Section 8/202 apartments, occupancy is open also to mobility impaired<br />

age 18 and older who needs an apartment with the features necessary to<br />

accommodate the mobility impaired as verified by a health provider.<br />

Are there exceptions to the age & income eligibility requirements?<br />

• Some properties have age waivers for 50 years instead of 62.<br />

• Some properties have income waivers for persons with low income<br />

instead of very low income.<br />

• Some properties have both age and income waivers. Christopher<br />

Homes currently has eight properties that have both income and age<br />

waivers.<br />

What other eligibility requirements are there? HUD will not subsidize the rent of a<br />

person who:<br />

• Has been evicted from HUD housing in the last three years (except for<br />

special circumstances);<br />

• Currently uses illegal drugs or abuses alcohol;<br />

• Is classified as a sex offender.<br />

Management Companies can also impose their own eligibility criteria based on<br />

Landlord, Credit and Criminal Background Screening.<br />

How do I know if I am income eligible to move into Senior Housing with Rental Assistance? Go to<br />

www.huduser.org/portal/datasets/il/il14/index.html and select the county and state<br />

where you would like to live. Review the chart for your household count to see if<br />

you are income eligible. Your annual income must be 50% or less of the median<br />

income for your household size. Income waivers allow the income to be 80% or less<br />

of the median income.<br />

How many persons can live in a HUD subsidized 202 household? Occupancy standards<br />

are established by the housing provider, but the general rule is two persons<br />

per bedroom unless the apartment is too small for two, such as a studio.<br />

Christopher Homes properties are ground level garden terraces that include<br />

studios and one bedroom apartments.<br />

How is my rent calculated? A household will pay the highest of the following<br />

amounts:<br />

• 30% of the family’s monthly adjusted income;<br />

• 10% of the family’s monthly income or<br />

• $25 minimum rent.<br />

What are my rights as a resident of a HUD-subsidized 202 apartment? A resident<br />

has rights involving their apartment, resident organizations, and<br />

nondiscrimination. For apartment living, rights include<br />

• The right to live in decent, safe, and sanitary housing that is free from<br />

environmental hazards such as lead-based paint hazards.<br />

• The right to have repairs performed in a timely manner upon request<br />

and to have a quality maintenance program run by management.<br />

• The right to be given reasonable notice, in writing, of any<br />

nonemergency inspection or other entry into your apartment.<br />

Christopher Homes does not discriminate and provides equal and fair<br />

treatment and use of our building services and facilities, without regard to<br />

race, color, religion, gender, disability, familial status (children under 18), and<br />

national origin (ethnicity or language).<br />

What is the Service Coordinator Program? Service Coordinators are an integral part<br />

of the services we provide. A Service Coordinator is responsible for assuring<br />

that elderly residents especially those frail or at risk, and those non-elderly<br />

residents with disabilities are linked to the supportive services they need to<br />

continue living independently in their current homes. Christopher Homes<br />

currently operates 10 properties that facilitate a Service Coordinator program.<br />

The mission of Christopher Homes is to mobilize available public, private and<br />

human resources to provide basic necessities including supportive services and<br />

other enrichment activities for the well-being of those we serve.<br />

PHYSICAL<br />

FITNESS AND<br />

THE GOLDEN<br />

YEARS<br />

BY SHARON TURRENTINE,<br />

HONORARY CHAIRMAN,<br />

LOUISIANA GOVERNOR’S<br />

COUNCIL ON PHYSICAL<br />

FITNESS AND SPORTS<br />

34<br />

Hey there, I want to<br />

talk to you about Physical<br />

Fitness and the Golden<br />

Years. A physical fitness lifestyle includes three equal phases of physical training<br />

which are Nutrition, Aerobic Activities and Strength Training. Let’s start with the<br />

hardest.<br />

Nutrition or “diet” is defined in the dictionary as Habitual Nourishment. So<br />

WHATEVER you are eating IS your diet. Sensible healthy choices and proper portions<br />

are the key ingredients here. Do not go back for seconds. Listen to your brain and<br />

resist all junk food. You do not need them! As a reminder, watch out for sodium as<br />

we only need 500 mg’s per day. I recommend you eat right 7 days a week.<br />

Aerobic Type Activity is any activity done 20 minutes or longer that elevates the<br />

heart rate. A brisk walk is aerobic activity. Choose something you are willing to do<br />

and continue to do it. If available and you are able, swimming or just playing in the<br />

pool for 20 minutes or more is great for the muscles.<br />

Strength training is only accomplished by lifting weights that create tone and<br />

firm the muscles to make your body stronger. Any activity that you do continuously<br />

and consistently that works the muscle is a Builder. I recommend you do your<br />

strength training at least 3 days a week.<br />

Set your long term goals and short ones too. Don’t try to make all these<br />

changes the first day. Make a schedule of what you plan to do and gradually<br />

change your habits. The main goal here is to improve the quality of YOUR life<br />

and most likely extend it too.<br />

If you are truly trying to lose weight, then weight yourself once a week, not daily,<br />

and at the same day and time each week. The complete physical fitness lifestyle and<br />

better health will be your Reward. Try it, what have you got to lose?<br />

Nursing Home Crisis Planning<br />

What you must know before you apply for Medicaid<br />

If you or a loved one is permanently in the nursing home or about to go to a<br />

nursing home, how do you plan to pay $5,000 to $7,000 per month for care?<br />

If you don’t have enough income the nursing home will suggest you apply for<br />

Medicaid to help you pay for care. However, never apply for Medicaid or allow<br />

the Nursing Home to apply for Medicaid unless you are very sure you will qualify.<br />

If you can answer yes to any of these questions below, you probably will not<br />

qualify for Medicaid.<br />

Medicaid Eligibility Checklist<br />

* Do own a home in a Revocable or Irrevocable Trust?<br />

* Have you transferred any assets to a trust within the last 60 months?<br />

* Do you have any assets in a Revocable Trust?<br />

* Do you own any real-estate (personal or commercial) besides your primary residence?<br />

* Do you own any real-estate (personal or commercial) outside of Arkansas?<br />

* Have you sold any property for less than fair market value within the last 60 months?<br />

* Have you given any real-estate to anyone as a gift within the last 60 months?<br />

* Have you given any monies to anyone as a gift within the last 60 months?<br />

* Have you added anyone’s name to any property within the last 60 months?<br />

* Do you have any financial accounts (bank, CDs, brokerage) with more than $2,000?<br />

* Have you added anyone’s name to any financial accounts or assets within the last<br />

60 months?<br />

* Have you removed your name from any existing financial accounts or assets within<br />

the last 60 months?<br />

* Have you made any gifts or transfers to any individual or group within the last<br />

60 months?<br />

* Do you own life insurance with more than $1,500 cash surrender value?<br />

* Do you own a boat, trailer, tractor, ATV, or farm equipment?<br />

* Do you own a vehicle (personal or commercial) besides your primary transportation<br />

vehicle?<br />

When the nursing home applies for Medicaid both they and you assume<br />

Medicaid will pay all the way back to the date you applied for Medicaid. If you<br />

are approved this is true, but if you are not approved for Medicaid you now owe<br />

the nursing home all the way back to the date you applied for Medicaid.<br />

In short you may owe the nursing home from $10,000 to $70,000 because you<br />

did not qualify for Medicaid the first time. You probably did not qualify because<br />

you could answer yes to one or more of the above questions. To solve all these<br />

problems and issues you will need a qualified Elder Law Attorney to help you<br />

before you apply for Medicaid to make sure all of your i’s are dotted and all your<br />

t’s are crossed so you qualify the first time you apply.<br />

The Home Protection Plan<br />

How to Protect your Home from the Government and Nursing Home<br />

while you are recovering in nursing home rehabilitation<br />

Each year many Arkansans go to a nursing home and slowly go broke. How<br />

does this happen? For example take the couple with a $150,000 home, $50,000<br />

in savings and a monthly income of $3000. The Husband had a stroke and went<br />

to nursing home rehab for 6 weeks then returned home. Three years later the<br />

Husband had another stroke and is now in the nursing home permanently. The<br />

wife needs $2,000 for her monthly living expenses while the Husband’s nursing<br />

home costs is an additional $5,000 per month. With $7,000 of expenses they<br />

must take $4,000 out of their savings each month. In 12 months all $50,000 of<br />

their savings are gone. This is what happens without a Home Protection Plan.<br />

The Home Protection Plan: What if the first time the Husband went to nursing<br />

home for 6 weeks he pre-qualified for Medicaid before returning home.<br />

(A Home Protection Plan)<br />

By pre-qualifying for Medicaid while in Rehab this couple can guarantee the<br />

protection of their home from the government and the nursing home from future<br />

long term care costs.<br />

Unfortunately not just anyone can pre-qualify for Medicaid anytime they<br />

want. You can only pre-qualify for Medicaid while you are living in a nursing<br />

home such as Rehab. Once the pre-qualifying paperwork is done the nursing<br />

home spouse can return home and know for sure that no matter what happens<br />

in the future neither the government nor the nursing home can ever take their<br />

home. Three years later if the Husband has another stroke and is permanently<br />

in the nursing home he is guaranteed the home is protected and the Husband<br />

will quickly qualify for Medicaid to help pay his nursing home bill. The Home<br />

Protection Plan will also protect the home if the wife permanently goes to a<br />

nursing home and assure that she will quickly qualify for Medicaid to help pay<br />

her nursing home bill.<br />

With this option in mind, if you or a loved one goes to nursing home rehab,<br />

this could be your golden opportunity to pre-qualify for Medicaid and protect<br />

your home from the government and the nursing home. To pre-qualify for<br />

Medicaid you will need a qualified Elder Law Attorney to make sure all of your<br />

i’s are dotted and all your t’s are crossed and all your paperwork is in order. If<br />

your paperwork is wrong you have lost your best and easiest chance to protect<br />

your home. You must get it right the first time. There are no second chances.<br />

To take advantage of this golden opportunity you should contact a qualified Elder<br />

Law Attorney as soon as you know you will be leaving the hospital and going to a<br />

nursing home for rehabilitation.<br />

Massage Therapy for Seniors<br />

By Beth Gohlson, LMT<br />

42<br />

Our population ages daily. Not just the population in general, but each and every<br />

human body. The search and desire to stay healthy and live pain free remains attainable.<br />

Have you ever stood up from your chair with a groan while holding your lower back?<br />

Or perhaps you miss being able to turn your head to the side comfortably to check for<br />

oncoming cars in the other lane. Does the thought of bending over and tying your shoes<br />

ever seem like a chore? Massage therapy is a natural way to relieve discomfort and<br />

increase a positive way of life. As lifestyles become less active joints become stiff and<br />

sore. Massage Therapy increases joint mobility and range of motion.<br />

Massage therapists work to relieve muscle tightness, spasms or cramps.<br />

As the muscle relaxes, blood and oxygen flow into the targeted area. This relieves pain<br />

and increases circulation. The therapist will primarily use his/her hands and fingers to<br />

massage and stretch muscles and soft tissue in order to accomplish the desired relief.<br />

Sometimes heat, electronic devices, cupping or tools may even be used.<br />

A massage should not be painful! It is important to communicate with your massage<br />

therapist. If the pressure, stretch or a certain manipulation is uncomfortable, you should<br />

let the therapist know immediately. Everyone has a different pain tolerance or level of<br />

pressure that is considered pleasurable. Communication is a must!<br />

The power of touch can never be underestimated. Research shows that those who are<br />

physically touched on a regular basis have more of the hormone oxytocin. This hormone<br />

helps lower stress, anxiety and blood pressure. It also increases pain tolerance. This<br />

leads to a sense of calm and well being.<br />

Area Agency on Aging Offers Many<br />

Free Services Benefiting Seniors<br />

By Billie Holsomback<br />

Area Agency on Aging of West Central Arkansas is a private non-profit charitable<br />

organization that provides an information and referral service for seniors 60 and older.<br />

Area Agencies on Aging were created across the United States in 1974, as a result of the<br />

previously passed Older Americans Act. The office in Malvern is located at 906 Dyer St. There<br />

are four other offices in the West Central region located Hot Springs, Arkadelphia, Russellville<br />

and Morrilton.<br />

At Area Agency on Aging we<br />

are dedicated to helping seniors<br />

live independent, meaningful<br />

and dignified lives. The<br />

specialized home-care that<br />

AAA provides allows seniors or<br />

disabled adults to stay in their<br />

homes, even as their physical<br />

abilities become limited. This<br />

type of care is for home-bound<br />

seniors who are in need of<br />

assistance in their homes and<br />

prevents or delays placement of<br />

the senior in a nursing home.<br />

This allows the senior to retain the independence and dignity that is so critical to their quality<br />

of life. Our certified personal care aides are supervised by a registered nurse who specializes in<br />

personal care needs. Each client is visited every 60 days by a registered nurse to monitor the<br />

quality of the services they are receiving, as well as making sure the senior’s evolving needs are<br />

being met.<br />

In addition, Case Managers visit clients regularly to help ensure they have everything that we<br />

can provide to help them be safe and happy in their homes. The Case Managers are knowledgeable<br />

about the problems of aging, as well as the resources and services that are available to help<br />

this special population such as transportation resources. Many clients are Medicaid eligible,<br />

but a growing number pay for their services or have long term care insurance that pays for<br />

the care. AAA provides free assessments that identify the senior’s needs and provide solutions<br />

tailored to fit those needs.<br />

The Case Managers also sign seniors up for Meals on Wheels, which are prepared, served and<br />

delivered by the local senior centers. The two local senior centers are primarily funded by the<br />

Area Agencies on Aging.<br />

The agency’s senior companion program offers friendship, light housekeeping, meal<br />

preparation and limited transportation at no cost to seniors who qualify. The volunteer<br />

driven program matches clients with volunteers – all seniors themselves – to further<br />

help the client remain in their own homes as long as possible. Volunteers are needed for this<br />

important program. Senior Companions must be 55 and over and be able to serve between 15<br />

and 40 hours a week. They receive a small stipend for their time, mileage reimbursement and<br />

accident and liability insurance while on duty. Formal experience is not needed. Time, compassion<br />

and the desire to help seniors are the main qualifications.<br />

Another program of<br />

the Agency, the Family<br />

Caregiver Grant Program,<br />

offers short-term help<br />

and respite for caregivers.<br />

The grants are distributed<br />

yearly and help caregivers<br />

pay for respite care. It’s<br />

one of many resources<br />

available at AAA for family<br />

members caring for their<br />

loved ones at home.<br />

The agency supports<br />

14 senior activity centers<br />

across its 10-county region, offering home-delivered Meals on Wheels, group meals, socialization,<br />

recreational and educational activities, and other services to seniors. AAA Case Managers<br />

assess clients’ eligibility for the home-delivered Meals on Wheels service and AAA provides<br />

support for this program through the Senior Centers.<br />

The agency’s long-term care ombudsmen advocate for seniors in long term care facilities<br />

and assisted living facilities ensuring residents are well-cared for and any issues are<br />

resolved. They see that resident councils are in place, resident rights are respected and<br />

family members’ concerns are addressed. The Agency is currently seeking Volunteer Ombudsmen.<br />

If you are interested in lending your voice for seniors for two to four hours a week and<br />

helping protect nursing home residents please call today.<br />

Most of the services provided by AAA are free to the recipient and those that are not can be<br />

covered by Medicaid, private insurance or private payment.<br />

For information on these and other programs offered by the agency, call 501-337-<br />

1711, or 1-800-467-2170, visit the agency’s web site at www.seniorspecialists.org or follow<br />

An Update from<br />

United States Senator Tom Cotton<br />

For Seniors in Arkansas<br />

Five Important Tips for Seniors to help protect yourself from<br />

fraud and having your hard earned money and life savings<br />

conned out of you by cruel and heartless scammers!<br />

1<br />

2<br />

3<br />

4<br />

5<br />

Always talk with a trusted family member or professional financial advisor<br />

before making large purchases, donations or financial investments.<br />

Beware of television advertisements and be skeptical of all unsolicited offers<br />

regarding YOUR money. If it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.<br />

There is no free in free.<br />

Add your phone number to the government’s “Do Not Call List”, and you can<br />

do this for free by visiting www.DoNotCall.gov, or by calling 1-888-382-1222<br />

from the phone number you want to register.<br />

Never, ever give out your credit card number or personal information over the<br />

phone especially if it is a solicited call. Do not agree to anything by phone!!<br />

If you bank or pay bills by phone, use hard to guess passwords. Never<br />

disclose your account numbers or personal information by email, especially<br />

if the request appears to come from your bank or any other company you<br />

do business with. Never hesitate to call them back to ask if the message is<br />

legitimate.<br />

Schemes used to defraud Seniors can be convincing and sometimes even threatening, so<br />

it is important to stay alert to guard your money. Remember to safeguard your personal<br />

information, and ignore all unsolicited offers and requests especially for money. In your<br />

favor do not be embarrassed to discuss large financial decisions with someone trustworthy<br />

that will help you make sure it is the right choice for you. Getting two opinions will help<br />

guide you to that choice and ease your mind at the same time.<br />

I serve on the Senate Committee on Aging, a special committee focused on<br />

policies relating to older Americans. We’ve been hard at work over the last several<br />

months and I wanted to take this opportunity to give you an update on the issues that<br />

impact Arkansas’s seniors.<br />

You may remember from my last update that the committee is particularly<br />

focused on scams targeting the senior community. Earlier this year, we held a hearing<br />

examining ways to prevent drug traffickers from tricking seniors into doing their<br />

bidding and smuggling drugs. Following the hearing, I joined several other members<br />

of the committee in asking Secretary of State Kerry to provide assistance from the<br />

State Department to seniors who have fallen victim to a drug smuggling scam.<br />

Following our letter, the State Department intervened in the case of a retired pastor<br />

from Maine and J. Bryon Martin was released from a Spanish prison after nearly a<br />

year.<br />

Recently, the committee also looked at new ways to promote financial security<br />

and stability in the senior community. During this hearing, I discussed the American<br />

Savings Promotion Act, a law I passed when I served in the House of Representatives.<br />

The American Savings Promotion Act allowed states to offer savings promotion<br />

raffles, or prize-linked savings accounts, to encourage people to open savings<br />

accounts. I was pleased to hear from Brian Plum, a bank executive and witness at<br />

the hearing, that this legislation is an important tool in efforts to promote financial<br />

solvency among seniors.<br />

Finally, I was pleased to support and help pass a bill in the Senate designating June<br />

15, 2016 as World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. While a small gesture, this resolution<br />

can help bring awareness to the fact that nationwide it is estimated that one in every<br />

ten adults over sixty fall victim to some sort of abuse, neglect or exploitation. I am<br />

hopeful that this resolution will help bring attention to this important issue. And help<br />

put a stop to this crime.<br />

As always, I want to hear from you about issues affecting you. Please be sure and<br />

contact my office with any questions or concerns or to simply express your opinion.<br />

As a reminder, my offices in Arkansas stand ready and able to assist casework<br />

problems that you may have—such as filing a claim with the VA or the Social<br />

Security Administration. You can find contact information and stay up-to-date on the<br />

happenings of the Senate and the Senate Committee on Aging by visiting my website,<br />

cotton.senate.gov or calling (202) 224-2353.<br />

AID & ATTENDANCE ACT FOR VETERANS<br />

Wartime Veterans and their Widows can receive up to the<br />

following monthly benefits to help pay for In-Home Care and<br />

Assisted Living<br />

Monthly Annually<br />

Married Veteran $2,054 $24,648<br />

Single Veteran $1,732 $20,784<br />

Widow of Veteran $1,113 $13,356<br />

Benefits are paid directly to Veteran or Widow, are retroactive to date of application and<br />

are TAX FREE.<br />

1. MILITARY SERVICE REQUIRED DURING WARTIME: The Veteran served 90 days of<br />

active duty with at least one day during a declared state of war. Eligible Dates are:<br />

WWI April 16, 1917 – November 11, 1918<br />

WWII December 7, 1941 – December 31, 1946<br />

Korea June 27, 1950 – January 31, 1955<br />

Vietnam August 5, 1964 – May 7, 1975<br />

Gulf/Iraq August 2, 1990 – Present<br />

2. MEDICAL QUALIFICATIONS: The Veteran or widow must be over age 65 and<br />

have at least one or more significant health problems. In my experience I have found<br />

about 90% of those over age 70 qualify medically and about 60% of those ages 65-70<br />

qualify medically. Your personal physician must complete the proper VA paperwork to<br />

determine if you qualify medically.<br />

3. ASSET QUALIFICATIONS: The Veteran or widow can qualify for the full benefit<br />

and own a Home, Car, Household Goods and Furnishings and up to $80,000 of savings<br />

and investments. The exact amount of savings and investments they can have will<br />

differ from Veteran to Veteran because the formula is based on the Veteran’s age, life<br />

expectancy, current income and monthly medical expenses. Veterans who are over<br />

the asset limit may spend some of their money (Countable Resources) on things such<br />

as home improvements, a new automobile (Non-Countable Resources) or pay off<br />

existing debt in order to qualify. Fortunately, at this time, gifts to children can be made<br />

to reduce a Veteran’s Resources and this is not a disqualifying gift. However Congress is<br />

considering making gifts a disqualifying event. This has not occurred yet and Veterans<br />

who apply before any change in the law would not be disqualified by making a gift<br />

to their children. Caution: Gifts to children can have adverse tax consequences and<br />

assets gifted to children can be lost if the child is sued, divorced or files bankruptcy. A<br />

properly structured gift trust can protect these assets gifted to a child from being lost to<br />

such mishaps.<br />

4. INCOME QUALIFICATIONS:<br />

The amount of Monthly Benefit a<br />

Veteran or widow can qualify for<br />

is partially based on their current<br />

income and medical expenses, but<br />

you don’t have to be impoverished.<br />

I have found about 40% of my<br />

clients will qualify for some or all of<br />

the benefit without any planning.<br />

They simply need direction on<br />

how to go about applying for the<br />

benefit. Another 40% of my clients<br />

will qualify immediately with a<br />

little planning and 20% will not<br />

qualify at all because they have<br />

very good income or minimal<br />

medical expenses. However, most<br />

of these 20% will qualify in the<br />

future as their Medical expenses<br />

increase and if they are currently in<br />

need of In-Home Care or Assisted<br />

Living these medical expenses will<br />

usually qualify them for some or<br />

all of the benefit. The other 80%<br />

of my clients will typically receive<br />

the maximum VA benefit at the<br />

time they require In-Home Care or<br />

Assisted Living because In-Home<br />

Care and Assisted Living are<br />

considered medical expenses.<br />

If you or a loved one is currently in<br />

need of In-Home Care or Assisted<br />

Living consider these programs and<br />

the benefits they may provide. Getting<br />

the help you need right now<br />

may prevent or at least delay the<br />

necessity of Nursing Home Care in<br />

the future.<br />

How to Plan? Funeral Service Burial Cremation Cemetery


VETERAN VA BURIAL BENEFITS<br />

Veteran burial benefits must be requested, generally in writing, they<br />

are not automatic, and can take considerable time and effort for your<br />

family. Your local Dignity Memorial provider can assist with exactly what<br />

you are entitled to receive as a Veteran.<br />

Consider:<br />

• US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits do not cover all the<br />

funeral or cremation arrangement of honorably discharged Veterans.<br />

• A “Report of Separation from the Armed Forces of the United States”<br />

(discharge paper) is required to verify military service.<br />

• A Veteran’s family may request a United States flag, at no cost, to<br />

drape the casket or accompany the urn of a deceased Veteran. One<br />

flag per veteran.<br />

• Military funeral honors ceremonies must be scheduled in advance and<br />

include the folding and presentation to the United States flag and the<br />

playing of “Taps”.<br />

• The VA and other branches of service do not provide a free casket for a<br />

deceased Veteran, unless death occurs while on active duty.<br />

• A “Presidential Memorial Certificate” signed by the current President,<br />

must be requested by the deceased veteran’s next of kin and loved<br />

ones.<br />

• Monetary Burial benefits are limited if you choose not to be buried in<br />

a VA national cemetery. If the death is service-related, up to $2,000.00<br />

may be paid for burial expenses.<br />

• Eligibility requirement for burial in a VA National Cemetery have caveats<br />

but include: an assigned gravesite (if available), opening and closing<br />

of the grave, a grave liner for casketed remains, a Government headstone<br />

or marker and perpetual care at no cost to the family.<br />

• If a Veteran burial is in a private cemetery, headstones, markers or medallions<br />

must be requested.<br />

• Replacement of military service medals, awards and decoration must<br />

be requested in writing.<br />

How to Make<br />

Caregiving<br />

Easier<br />

THE SOLUTION IS SIMPLER THAN YOU MIGHT IMAGINE…<br />

No one has to tell the more than 65 million Americans who provide unpaid care to<br />

loved ones with chronic illness that their job is difficult, stressful and exhausting —<br />

physically and emotionally.<br />

Nor do caregivers (full- or part-time) need to hear yet again that they must build a<br />

support system so they can take breaks to pamper themselves from time to time. What<br />

caregivers need most are methods for making the day-to-day act of caregiving a little<br />

less exhausting.<br />

What often gets overlooked: With the grueling demands of caregiving —whether it’s<br />

shopping, handling a loved one’s finances or helping with bathing and dressing — it’s<br />

easy to overlook the critical aspect of effective communication.<br />

So often, it’s the misunderstandings, hurt feelings and unspoken expectations that<br />

drain precious energy from the caregiver at the very time he/she needs it most. Here<br />

are eight secrets to help caregivers...*<br />

Set the ground rules. It’s common for caregiving to begin with a<br />

SECRET #1<br />

general intention of “helping out.” However, the needs of your loved<br />

one are bound to grow over time. That’s why it is crucial for every caregiving arrangement<br />

(even with a spouse) to have a written agreement, initiated by the caregiver with<br />

input and consent from the loved one. What are you, as the caregiver, able and willing<br />

to do? How much time can you realistically commit to providing care? When creating<br />

the agreement, which can be reviewed and changed periodically, remind the ill person<br />

that it will help protect the relationship and prevent misunderstandings.<br />

Don’t give in. Whether it’s eating a food that’s not on his diet or<br />

SECRET #2<br />

stopping physical therapy, it’s tempting to allow a chronically ill<br />

person to have his way just to keep the peace. Do not do it. Instead, try to figure out<br />

the reason for the request. Listen closely and then repeat the request, so the person<br />

knows you’re paying attention. Take some time to consider the request, even when<br />

you know the answer is no.<br />

When you do tell the person no, be firm but explain your reasons so you don’t come<br />

across as arbitrary. Try to find another way to address the request in a safer and/or<br />

more appropriate way. If the person is, say, asking to eat spicy foods that you know<br />

upset his stomach, offer to contact a nutritionist for advice on what else he can eat.<br />

SECRET #3<br />

Pay attention to body language. In many cases, a person may say<br />

one thing but really be feeling something else. For example, your<br />

loved one may say that he likes the meal you’ve prepared, but his fidgeting at the table<br />

most likely indicates that he feels frustrated with the food choice or perhaps the table<br />

setup. Or your loved one may say that he feels comfortable taking a walk in the backyard,<br />

but if he’s looking down when he makes the statement, he may, in fact, feel unsafe.<br />

Be attuned<br />

to these signals,<br />

and you’ll be better<br />

able to meet<br />

that person’s real<br />

needs.<br />

SECRET #4<br />

Practice listening.<br />

Many chronically<br />

ill people<br />

are angry about<br />

what they’re experiencing<br />

and<br />

need to vent. As<br />

the caregiver, one of your primary roles is to simply listen. (If you are a family member, it<br />

may be appropriate for you to help find a solution or look for someone who can.)<br />

Let your loved one know that you’re willing to listen, as long as he’s not hurting or<br />

attacking you. If you get frustrated, say, “OK, I need to leave now. But I’ll be back in a<br />

while.” By saying you’ll be back, you let the person know you’re still in a relationship<br />

with him.<br />

Apologize if you’re wrong. If you’re spending a lot of time with a<br />

SECRET #5<br />

loved one, chances are you’ll forget to follow through on a request,<br />

act irritated when you should not or do something else at some point that will offend<br />

or hurt that person. If this occurs, give the person an opportunity to air his grievance.<br />

Never interrupt. After hearing out the person, repeat what he has said back to him. If<br />

it’s obvious that you offended your loved one, apologize immediately and sincerely.<br />

If your fault is less obvious, offer to think about what your loved one has said and let<br />

him know that you’ll discuss it further the next day. When the time comes, explain<br />

what you think happened and let the person know that you didn’t intend to hurt<br />

him. Sometimes, the person may simply be looking to vent his feelings and not even<br />

expect an apology.<br />

Use the power of<br />

SECRET #6<br />

touch. Day-to-day<br />

caregiving can easily focus so much on<br />

the chores that need to be done that<br />

the relationship you have with the ill<br />

person gets somewhat neglected. In<br />

these cases, touch can be a powerful<br />

antidote. Simply holding someone’s<br />

hand can ease sadness. A peck on the<br />

cheek shows you’re happy to see your<br />

loved one. Touching shows acceptance,<br />

compassion and caring—and<br />

the result is a stronger bond between<br />

you and your loved one. Make sure the<br />

touch is appropriate to your relationship,<br />

and avoid touching anyone who<br />

dislikes physical contact.<br />

Let your loved<br />

SECRET #7<br />

one cry. Crying is<br />

a normal reaction to the sadness and<br />

suffering that often result from chronic<br />

illness. Even men need to cry. When<br />

someone cries, don’t interrupt him with,<br />

“Why are you crying?” or “Don’t cry.”<br />

Simply sit silently and look empathetic.<br />

Interrupt only if you’re handing the<br />

person a tissue.<br />

When the tears stop, wait awhile and then say, “I can see you’re very disturbed, and<br />

this makes me feel for you.” While leaning forward with an expectant look on your face,<br />

say, “Is there anything you’d like to talk about?” Don’t force your loved one to explain<br />

the tears. Often, a good cry is all it takes to ease distressful feelings.<br />

Avoid confrontation. Do your best to avoid clashes, especially over<br />

SECRET #8<br />

minor issues. Use phrases such as, “As I see it…” or “In my opinion…”<br />

to suggest that you are giving your opinion, not hard facts. If you do have an<br />

argument, stay calm. Allow the other person to talk—or show anger as long as it isn’t<br />

excessive or abusive — uninterrupted. When he finishes, calmly explain your position.<br />

If the conversation is still heated, suggest that you save the discussion for later when<br />

he calms down.<br />

SNAP Can Help Stretch Your Grocery Budget<br />

The USDA Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program<br />

SNAP can be used to buy nutritional shakes and other doctorrecommended<br />

foods. Most Grocery Stores and more than 50<br />

Farmers Markets in Arkansas accept SNAP! Take your grandkids<br />

to the market! Just look<br />

for the SNAP/EBT logo.<br />

If you receive SNAP<br />

benefits, it does not “take<br />

away” from someone else.<br />

Benefits are electronically<br />

transferred to a debit<br />

card and you simply swipe<br />

the card at your store to<br />

purchase the good food<br />

SNAP helps older Arkansans afford good<br />

food for good health.<br />

you need. The minimum benefit is about $16 per month. Would<br />

you toss a $16 coupon if it were in the newspaper? The average<br />

monthly SNAP benefit for households with older Arkansans is $76<br />

per month.<br />
