Staying Connected: It’s The Neighborly Thing To Do

“I was at a pretty low point when your flyer arrived in my mailbox…you’ll never know how that

one piece of paper impacted me! Like a gift from heaven.”

Staying Connected is a not for profit organization

of volunteers, who are Sun City residents,

that serve their neighbors within the gates of Sun

City. Commonly referred to as a “Village”, Staying

Connected is the vehicle for neighbors to help

neighbors stay in their homes as long as it is safe

to do so.

Staying Connected evolved from a task force

led by Holly Field, who now serves as the Chairman

of its board. The goal of the task force was

to investigate the needs of the community to help

resident maintain their active lifestyle. After considerable

research and assistance provided by the

Coalition for Aging in Place a volunteer service organization

was formed. The task force evolved

into a steering committee and in June 2014,

Staying Connected was established with a fivemember

Board of Directors.

Their Mission: “To enhance resident’s ability to

remain engaged within our community and ensure

they have access to information and services

which provide them with the lifestyle consistent

with vision of an active adult community. The

mission is supported through the various services

offered by Staying Connected such as transportation

to and from medical related appointments

and grocery shopping, home companionship

visits, reassuring call, caregiver relief visits, minor

home maintenance and home safety checks.

Another valuable asset is their Resource Hub.

The Resource Hub is open Monday-Friday from

9:00AM-3:00PM and provides residents with a

broad range of Low Country support information.

Homes visits and transportation, two of the direct

services offered by Staying Connected, have experienced

an 83% and 70% increase, respectively,

when compared to 4th quarter 2015. The Village

currently has 350 members and 250 volunteers.

Volunteers are at the heart of Staying Connected’s

mission. The organization is constantly recruiting

volunteers and offers orientation and training for

all who are interested. Volunteers are offered the

opportunity to work in one or several areas with

flexible time commitment.

Sun City Hilton Head is humming with excitement.

The excitement of residents thrilled with

the addition of Staying Connected. Volunteers

and members alike are benefiting from the services

offered by the community’s “Village”. “As a

child I always had a security blanket. Now at 89

years old I have gotten my security blanket back,”

…Staying Connected Member. A volunteer simply

states “I am paying it forward. I have received

help throughout my life and now I am able to

help those in need.” Evidence that community

outreach changes both lives.

Seniors Helping Seniors:

Developing a Village in Your Community

As you grow older, would you like to stay in your

home for as long as possible? You are not alone.

Several communities around the country, and in

Beaufort County, are now looking at a new way to

help seniors stay in their own homes as long as

it is safe, physically and

financially possible.

This new, volunteerdriven

approach, involves

forming self-directed,

senior support networks,

i.e., Village, that provide

programs and services

needed for the continuance

of independent

living. Membership in

the Village includes the

benefits of seniors helping

seniors, the services

of a limited network

staff, and a single point

of contact to access a broad menu of programs

and services necessary to assure that living in your

own home is enjoyable, safe, healthy, and generally

feasible.

There are already several Villages up and running

in Beaufort County and a few that are in the

developmental stages. Local Villages are currently

providing services such as transportation to doctors,

grocery shopping, and social events; assistance

with minor household chores, light maintenance

projects, and friendly phone checkups. Some

Villages are also providing respite services in

addition to meals for neighbors who are recuperating

from surgery or short

term illnesses. As each

community is unique so

are the list of services

they will provide.

Interested in creating

a Village network in your

community? The Beaufort

County Coalition for

Aging in Place (CAP) is

available to work with

members of your community

to that end. CAP

serves as an information

resource, provides

development consultation

and has representatives who will make

presentations community meetings. Once the

Village is up and running CAP can also provide

PR and marketing support as well as assistance

with start-up funding (up to $1,200).

For additional information on how to get a

Village started in your community contact Deborah

Edmondson, Village Developer and CAP Facilitator.

There’s a lot to love here.

Sometimes innovation is about seeing the world in a new way,

not looking at a screen.

At Brookdale, we are changing perceptions of aging. Actually, we’re doing more

than that. We’re celebrating aging by redefining what it means to live well. But,

of course, our residents use cool technology, too, like tablets, social media and

video-chatting to connect with family and friends.

Talking to Mom

About an Assisted

Living Residence

Chuck Bongiovanni, MSW, MBA, CSA- CarePatrol

Talking to Mom About Assisted Living

Very few seniors want to leave the homes where

they may have been living for decades, but as their

age advances, the necessity of doing so may increase

until the issue can no longer be ignored. Household

matriarchs may be extremely reluctant to leave

the family home and all of its associated memories.

However, when it is time to have that heartfelt talk

with mom, a few words of advice can help to alleviate

any difficulties.

Consider the Need

The first step in talking to mom about a possible

move to an assisted living residence, is to consider the

need for it. Make a list of the pros and cons associated

with moving. If the advantages are overwhelming,

then the talk cannot be avoided. However, it is also

necessary to consider what type of facility is required.

Large, apartment-type buildings may be ideal,

CarePatrol of Savannah/Hilton Head

Find Safe, Quality Living Options

Call 912.737.0020

www.CarePatrol.com

but small, family-based facilities and nursing homes

should also be considered.

Ease Into the Topic

Before initiating a deep discussion, it is helpful to

nonchalantly bring up the idea a few times several

months beforehand. This can take the form of a simple

mention of other options after mom has experienced

a difficult situation, but you will want to wait a day or

two after an incident occurs.

Timing is Important

The best time to talk to mom about assisted living is

when she is comfortable and her mind naturally takes

her to some of the factors that are making her life sad,

difficult or lonely. Gently bringing up the topic at such

a time may be received as practical advice instead of

as an attack.

Discussion Ideas

The discussion about moving may be helped by

gathering information about her friends, who are

already living in an assisted living community. Mom

will be more open about visiting a community, where

she will have one or more instant friends.

Other topics, which may help in the discussion,

include reviewing the safety features of the assisted

living community and engaging her in discussing the

ease of upkeep to the living spaces, the level of privacy

in personal quarters, and the daily social activities

available in the pubic areas.

Finally, give mom some time to consider the information

you have given to her. If she is still reluctant

after a few days, ask for help from friends and family

members.

If the incidents prompting a discussion regarding

assisted living are severe or if they occur frequently,

a simple mention should be upgraded to touring a

facility. In non-emergency situations, you can take

no for an answer the first few times.

Ways To Avoid Kidney Disease

Get a Primary Care Physician: Everyone needs a primary care physician,”

says Dr. Coleman. “They are the captain of the ship of your body.”

She recommends patients see them at minimum once per year, or as

often as the physician recommends. Make sure the PCP performs a

physical exam, runs a metabolic blood profile and a urinalysis showing

creatinine levels once per year. Creatinine is the number doctors use to

see how

well the kidneys are working. When your kidneys aren’t functioning

properly, creatinine can accumulate in your body. A urinalysis will also

help see if damage is being done to your kidneys.

Exercise: Keep active and exercise. Movement stimulates the body and

helps all organs do what they were made to do. Dr. Coleman recommends

30 minutes of exercise a minimum of three times per week under

the supervision of a PCP. Exercise will also help improve muscle function

and sleep, which will in turn benefit kidney function. Even moderate

exercise such as walking will improve one’s overall quality of health.

Water, Water, Water: “Drink lots of water,” says Dr. Coleman. Water

flushes the toxins from the kidneys and keeps your entire body hydrated. “You want to keep flushing toxins out

of your body. The best way to do that is with lots of water,” she says. Those living in the Lowcountry should be

extra careful to drink enough water, as they can lose hydration easily through daily activity.

Control Blood Pressure: Uncontrolled high blood pressure is the leading cause of kidney disease. Monitor

your blood pressure. Try to keep your top number (systolic) below 130; your diastolic number (bottom) below

80. Salt is an enemy. It raises blood pressure and puts unneeded stress on your kidneys.

Avoid Preserved Meats: Preserved meats such as lunch meat, bacon, pepperoni and red meat are high in

uric acid and salt, which are hard on kidney function and also causes painful gout.

Control Bad Cholesterol: Total cholesterol should be less than 200 mg. Good cholesterol should be above

50. Limit dining out, especially fast foods. It is suggested one eat more high antioxidant foods such as colorful

fruits and vegetables, legumes, nuts and low or non-fat dairy products.

Avoid Cigarettes: Smoking affects your entire body, including your kidneys. Smoking can also interfere with

medications used to treat high blood pressure.

Control Your Blood Sugar: Try to keep blood sugar levels (A1C) less than 7 percent. Uncontrolled diabetes

accelerates loss of kidney function. It is suggested people try to consume high-fiber/low-sugar foods.

CRITICAL

HEALTH CARE

DECISIONS

h

It’s time to have a conversation

about your health

and life choices.

Throughout our lifetime, we are faced with

difficult, unavoidable decisions. Of paramount

importance is the necessity of making decisions

that provide us and our families with the best life

possible of our choosing. This is

particularly true in the

situation of health-related

decisions. These situations

present themselves in the

setting of end-of-life challenges

or in the face of serious

chronic illnesses such as

chronic lung disease, or prior

to major surgical procedures

with the potential for serious

life-changing complications. Also, if you ask your

doctor if he would be surprised if you died within

the next year and he replies “no”, then it is time

for a real conversation and decisions directed

toward living the best life possible.

Critical Healthcare Decisions is a consultative

service developed to facilitate that conversation.

With over forty years of critical care expertise as

a lung and critical care physician as well as years

of experience in medical ethics and a recent

Master’s Degree in Bioethics,

I am well qualified to participate

in vour conversation to

clarify your healthcare or illness

situation. Your conversation,

including family members or

surrogates if you so desire, will

include important detailed discussions

regarding your future

healthcare. The alternative is

to avoid decision making until a healthcare crisis

develops - when you may be unable to make

your wishes known- leaving these very difficult

decisions to your spouse, children, or surrogate.

The Conversation is not easy, but it is necessary.

Please call me at 912-927-6680

to arrange a conference or to simply ask questions.

Feel free to email me at drtybee@gmail.com.

Please title your note as

“Critical Healthcare Decisions”.

Hilton Head and Coastal Carolina Hospitals

Walking through a hospital door is a little different for everybody. For a patient who has had a heart

attack or stroke, nothing in their life could have prepared them for the uncertain road ahead. For

patients needing physical rehabilitation, it’s a path to get back on their feet and the activities they

enjoy. For expectant parents and their relatives, it’s the beginning of one of life’s greatest journeys.

No matter what the circumstance, Hilton Head Hospital and Coastal Carolina Hospital are dedicated

to providing the best care possible.

Hilton Head Hospital: Specialized Treatment to Save Lives

Since opening its doors over four decades ago, Hilton Head Hospital has provided critical care

and proudly served the residents and visitors of Hilton Head Island, Bluffton, Okatie and

surrounding communities. With a core of dedicated, skilled physicians and well-trained staff,

the hospital has been able to develop highly

specialized programs for treatment of diseases

and injuries right here at home.

At the 93-bed hospital off of Beach City

Road on Hilton Head, patients and visitors

can find a vast array of healthcare services,

such as award winning cardiac care including

open heart surgery; a dedicated spine center

and orthopedic center, obstetrics/gynecology,

surgical services, physical rehabilitation and

wellness. Specialty orthopedic services include,

MAKOplasty, a robotic arm-assisted surgical

procedure designed to relieve pain caused by

joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis. At

Hilton Head Hospital, MAKOplasty® is currently

being used to treat the damaged part of

the knee.

Patients with serious injuries or dangerous symptoms can find treatment at the hospital’s 24-

hour emergency department. An online emergency room check-in service allows patients with

some symptoms to reserve a place and come to the ER at a designated time for care.

Hilton Head Hospital’s cancer care program, affiliated with the Medical University of South

Carolina Hollings Cancer Center, features Beaufort County’s only nationally accredited Breast

Health Center. It offers 3-D Breast Tomosynthesis and a dedicated breast surgeon.

Outpatient services are available at the two-year old Bluffton Medical Campus, located on 75

Baylor Drive in Bluffton – midway between Hilton Head and Coastal Carolina Hospitals. While

patients and their families will find a range of services at the hospitals, they can find access to

other convenient care at our Bluffton Medical Campus. The 60,000 sq. foot outpatient center was

designed as a one-stop shop for the convenience of patients. They can schedule appointments

with a primary care doctor, have blood drawn, receive their imaging and attend physical therapy

all in one building.

...Committed to Quality Patient Care

Coastal Carolina Hospital: High Quality Care Close to Home

Investing in the most advanced technology and recruiting well-trained physicians, Coastal

Carolina Hospital has built an array of inpatient and outpatient services so you and your loved

ones don’t have to leave your community to receive the high-quality care you deserve.

In the last year, our surgical services offerings have been enhanced with the addition of the da

Vinci® Robotic Surgical System. Our surgeons have been trained to use da Vinci to perform

procedures such gall bladder removal and hysterectomies through tiny incisions.

The hospital also is one of two places in South Carolina where men can have prostate biopsies

done with the aid of Artemis - a new technology

that brings detailed, three-dimensional imaging to

bear on prostate cancer. Physicians have long been

unable to accurately visualize tumors during prostate

biopsies, but that has improved thanks to the

Artemis device.

Advanced technology has made it possible for

persons suffering with a stroke to receive a higher

level of care. The hospital’s stroke program is part

of the Medical University of South Carolina’s telemedicine

network. The network provides aroundthe-clock

access to MUSC’s neurosurgeons, who

can help diagnose patients with stroke symptoms

via video – saving time and lives. The launch of this

service earned Coastal designation from The Joint Commission as a primary stroke center.

Patients and visitors to Coastal will find many other essential services at the 41-bed acute care

hospital. Among there are primary care, a dedicated Women’s Pavilion, 24-hour emergency car,

imaging, laboratory and pathology services, surgery, physical rehab and the only certified

pulmonary rehabilitation program in South Carolina. The hospital offers wound healing and

ostomy care at its Center for Hyperbarics and Wound Healing at the Bluffton Medical Campus.

Choosing The Right Physician

Choosing a physician is not easy. It is hard finding someone to trust your health with. Asking

for recommendations from co-workers, neighbors, and friends is a good way to start, but

ultimately you will have to decide which physician is best suited to your individual needs and

situation. If the Lowcountry is your second home, you still need to identify a physician who

can care for you while you are here. Establishing continuity of care with your home physician

makes sure you do not have

a lapse in your healthcare.

When you are choosing a doctor, look for someone who listens to your opinions and concerns,

encourages you to ask questions and explains things in ways you can understand. When you and

your doctor work together as a team, you’ll get better care.

The following questions can help you to define further what is most important for you

when choosing a physician:

• Is the doctor taking new patients?

• Is the doctor board-certified?

• Where is the practice located? Will it be easy for you to get there?

• How long will it take to get an appointment?

• Is the doctor part of a network of physicians?

Hilton Head Regional Healthcare is comprised of board-certified physicians that believe in

providing compassionate and comprehensive patient care right here in the Lowcountry.

Whether you are new to the area or just looking for a new physician, our physicians represent

a broad-range of medical and surgical specialties and they are dedicated to helping you stay

healthy and active.

NEPHROLOGY Nephrology is the study of kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney

problems, and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Patients are seen by a physician

specializing in nephrology for various reasons such as: acute renal failure, chronic kidney disease, hematuria,

proteinuria, kidney stones, hypertension, and disorders of acid/base or electrolytes.

HYPERTENSION Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a chronic medical condition in which blood pressure

in the arteries is elevated. Blood pressure is made up of two measurements, systolic and diastolic, which

depend on whether the heart muscle is contracting (systole) or relaxed between beats (diastole).

Hypertension puts strain on the heart, leading to hypertensive heart disease and coronary artery disease.

Hypertension is a major risk factor for stroke, aneurysms of the arteries, peripheral arterial disease, and

chronic kidney disease.

Nephrology & Hypertension Medical Associates, P.C. is a full service, privately owned and operated practice.

Since 1969, their focus and specialty has been the evaluation and treatment of patients with kidney related

disease and hypertension. While services do include hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, renal transplant referrals,

and care following transplantation, the primary goal is to provide patients and their families with the finest care

to enhance health and improve the quality of life, be addressing their chronic kidney disease problems before

these services are needed.

We all know that having an estate plan is good for

our finances and for our heirs. When it comes to estate

planning, the most common mistake people make is,

quite honestly, the simplest one: they fail to prepare.

And those who do prepare often make mistakes that

can lead to family discord and financial problems down

the road.

Over the years, we have seen estate plans fail what

they were intended to do. For your estate plan to remain

valuable for you and your heirs, you would be wise to

avoid these 10 common mistakes:

1. Not having a Will: Personal wishes, whether written

or oral, will most likely not be followed in the absence of

a will. Without a written plan that is set forth in a Will that

YOU create, your assets will pass to your heirs according

to your state’s laws of intestacy, not the way YOU

would want.

2. Doing it yourself: Even if a self-prepared will or trust

is legally enforceable, estate planning is a complex

legal process requiring knowledge in several areas of

the law, including estate law, tax law and property law

as starters.

3. Not funding your revocable living trust: A properly

drafted trust will prevent putting your loved ones through

the expensive, lengthy and emotionally draining court

probate process. Creating a trust is one thing- funding

it is another. An unfunded Revocable Trust is useless.

Make sure your attorney guides you on funding the trust

once created.

4. Failing to understand the impact of life insurance

proceeds: Many people do not realize that life insurance

proceeds are NOT controlled by the directions in

your will and death benefits are not part of your estate.

Confirm the identity of your death beneficiaries with your

life insurance company.

5. Failing to adequately plan for children with special

needs: An outright gift to a child with special needs

disqualification of that child from receiving public

benefits. Using a Special Needs Trust will allow you to

make a bequest for the benefit of the special needs

child while keeping public benefits.

Brian T. Treacy, Esq.

Elder Law & Estate Planning Center

Plan for Tomorrow, Today

10 Most Common Estate Planning Mistakes

6. Not properly planning for incapacity: People are

living longer, and therefore the risk of lacking capacity

during your lifetime is increasing. With proper estate

planning can you be sure that your health and financial

affairs will be taken care of in the event of your inability

to take care of them yourself.

7. Business planning: Who will own and control your

business upon your death? Proper estate planning

increases the likelihood of your business continuing as

a viable operation.

8. Not preparing for minor children: If you have minor

children, you should have a will nominating personal

guardians for the children, in the event that both you

and your spouse should die prior the children reaching

the age of 18. Without a plan, the court will decide

without your input where the kids will live and who will

make important decisions about their money, education

and life.

9. Improper beneficiary designations: Similar to life

insurance, your Will and your beneficiary designations

on IRAs, 401k’s and annuities should be consistent.

A Will does not necessarily control the disposition of

these assets.

10. Not periodically updating an estate plan: People

do not like to discuss dying, and therefore people often

want to simply execute their estate plan documents and

be done with it as quickly as possible, without considering

all the economic, family, and health dynamics that

should be thoughtfully addressed and monitored during

your lifetime. You should plan to make periodic revisions

to your estate plan.

Is It Time To Sell Your Home?

From the Moving On Guide, published by the SRES ® Council, Seniors Real Estate Specialist ®

Are you thinking of selling your home to move to a senior supportive environment? Or

perhaps to move in with an adult son or daughter who can help with your needs as you grow

older?

You may be considering leaving the family home with all that it represents—the place

where children were raised; the safety and security of a family unit; the physical space where

your oldest and dearest memories reside. For seniors, it can signify the best years of their

lives, where friends and community ties were made.

Many seniors would prefer to continue living in their own home, or aging in place.

Sometimes, circumstances work against those preferences:

• Home maintenance becomes a burden

• A major life event forces considering a move

• An aging parent wants to live closer to adult children or

other caretakers

• Financial concerns make it difficult to keep the home

• Support services are needed that are not available at home

To request a copy of Using your Home for Income in Retirement,

a Retirement Planning Guide, or with questions on

selling your home, please contact Susan Basile, S.R.E.S.® with

the Basile Property Group, Keller Williams Realty, 843-620-2535

or email Susan at susan@basilepropertygroup.com


Whatever the reason, there may come a time when parents, along with their adult children,

consider selling and moving on. The following information is designed to help guide

your family through the complex issues and unique situations you may encounter during the

process.

Many homeowners have previously bought and sold homes. However, selling a senior’s

home can be much more complicated, due to the number of unique issues and decisions—

and sometimes the number of people involved. Though seniors usually make the decision to

sell, it is not uncommon for adult children to help them sort through these and other issues:

• Is moving the best alternative? If so, where? Have other options been explored?

• Are close family members on board with a decision to sell?

• What is the best way to downsize a lifetime’s worth of possessions and family heirlooms?

• What are the tax-related implications of a sale?

• What effects might a sale have on future income?

The financial, logistical and emotional issues involved in a move can be stressful for a

family to navigate. Senior parents and their adult children may feel they are in unfamiliar

waters as they deal with these questions.

A real estate professional who has experience in senior’s issues, and who can put you in

contact with other similarly-trained professional advisors, can be an invaluable resource at

this time. You can count on a Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®) to help guide you

through the process and the special considerations, making the transaction less stressful

and more successful.

Your Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES®) can help you navigate this process.

They can:

• Familiarize you with the various types of senior housing available in your area.

• Suggest important questions to ask when you’re visiting various housing options.

• Refer you to other professionals who can help you understand and compare the true costs

of each option, determine which options are affordable based on your financial situation,

and examine the legal contracts involved in the process.

SERIES

October 4 - 22

A South Carolina Premiere! From Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winner and Spielberg’s Oscarnominated

film comes a musical with a fresh, joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and

blues. With a soul-raising score, The Color Purple gives an exhilarating new spirit to this tale

of 40-years in the life of a family in rural Georgia. Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best

Musical Revival and the 2017 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.

December 6 - 31

This Carolinas’ premiere of Disney Theatricals’ Tony Award-winning show is the rousing tale

of Jack Kelly, a charismatic newsboy and leader of a ragged band of ‘newsies,’ who dreams

of a better life. But when publishers raise prices at the newsboys’ expense, Jack rallies the

newsies to take a stand for what’s right. Exuberant songs, high-energy dance numbers, and

an uplifting story make this a don’t-miss-holiday-hit!

February 6 - 25

Our patrons’ #1 play selection, this Tony Award-winning thriller, Dial M for Murder, was also

a suspenseful Hitchcock film. Tony married his wife for her money and plans to murder her

for the same reason. He arranges the perfect murder…or so he thinks. When the would-be

murderer Tony hires ends up dead, Tony will go to any length to see his wife convicted. And

that’s just the beginning! “Tingling with excitement!” – NY Times

SATURDAY

Shoes,” “Tragedy,” “More than a Woman,” and “How Deep is Your Love,” are just a few hits in

this disco party of a musical!

Therapy Dogs

Best Friends Go to Work!

The unconditional love, loyalty, and companionship

from our dogs and the special relationship is hard to

beat. These characteristics along with focused training

can put some canines to work as therapy dogs.

Therapy dogs are different than service dogs. Service

dogs are specially trained for a specific challenge such

as vision or special disabilities. Therapy dogs make

visits to hospitals, nursing homes, libraries, or schools

with intention to promote healing, reduce anxiety,

improve overall well-being. Therapy dogs are required

to pass a comprehensive test with and without the

handler. The handler must

also pass a written test and submit vet health records for

the dog annually. This test is a series of strict obedience and

situational challenges such as reaction around walkers/canes,

hospital beds, and children to ensure the dog can function in

different environments calmly and effectively.

Trapper the Wonder Dog and I have our certification through

Therapy Dogs International. We visit a variety of local

facilities, and there is no doubt we make a positive impact

wherever we go. The visits range in length of time, and it is

not unusual for us to have a small crowd form around us

as Trapper uses his special charm. He is very calm and lets

people warm up to him and then slowly asks to shake paws.

He’s a gentle giant, as he is about 100 pounds of pure love. He typically gets lots of pets and

then hugs and kisses goodbye. Trapper and I are blessed to have such an important job!

Aunt Laurie’s inspires others to acknowledge the human value in everyone with custom

gift baskets hand woven and assembled by individuals with disabilities at the SC Voc.

Rehab Department in Beaufort. Many of the products in the baskets, such as dog biscuits,

candles, snacks, and ceramics are also made by individuals with disabilities. Aunt Laurie’s

established quarterly Lowcountry Ladies Luncheons, donates gift baskets to charities,

and the owner, Laurie Brown, volunteers her time helping Special Olympics and visits the

lonely or ill with the company mascot and certified therapy dog, Trapper.
