Dear Readers,

As the new publisher for the

most comprehensive and only

directory of resources, facilities

and services reaching over 22,000

Medina County residents aged

63+, I am pleased to introduce you

Along with the updated name

comes an updated look, however,

the purpose of the guide is unchanged:

to serve older adults and

their families in Medina County

and surrounding areas. Use it for

learning, planning and finding

options and opportunities for

yourself or loved ones.

Collaborating with the not-forprofit

Medina County Senior

Services Network (MCSSN), a

community of care network and

advocates for older adults in Medina

County established in 1994,

we are pleased to help you find

local, trusted providers who serve

our growing community.

This free publication is made

possible by the generosity of the

advertisers herein. After production,

printing and postage, any

remaining funds go toward grants

for Medina County non-profit

organizations’ projects benefiting

older adults. We invite you to acknowledge

their support with your

patronage.

For families seeking assistance

and resources via the Internet, the

medinaseniorservices.org website

and Medina County Senior Services

The Medina County Senior Services

Network (MCSSN) was established

in 1994 by a small group

of dedicated individuals who set

out to develop, coordinate and act

as advocates for a community of

care network in Medina County.

Over the years, MCSSN has

evolved into a group with over 100

members and organizations with

one common mission: “To develop

and coordinate a network of care

and resources for older adults in

Medina County.” For twenty years,

we have done this through networking,

sharing ideas, and publication

of this guide.

MCSSN’s first resource guide

was produced in 1996. This publication

was in response to a

growing need for a comprehensive

guide of services for senior citizens

in Medina County. The need has

now grown and become greater

and, much like MCSSN, our guide

has evolved into what it is today.

It is our hope that MCSSN

Senior Solutions, formerly The

Source, provides you with a for-

mat to easily navigate and find the

products and services you need.

We wish to continually improve

this guide and welcome your

feedback and comments. You may

contact us at:

regarding benefits and services

available in Medina County and

beyond. Our services are extensive

and range from simply providing

Transportation can be an issue

for seniors and those with disabilities.

We work with Medina Transit

outreach workers make visits to

meals at no charge. The Medina

County Commissioners make

these services possible with help

from Title III funding provided by

the Western Reserve Area Agency

on Aging through the Ohio Department

on Aging.

Adults has one central senior center

for programming throughout

the county, located in Medina, and

also coordinates senior services in

Brunswick.

Case Management in Medina County for Seniors

Case management is a service

provided in the home to seniors,

their caregivers, and their families.

It often helps families plan

for life’s next steps or get them

through a crisis by defining the

immediate issues, setting achievable

goals and close support to

help meet those goals. While there

are several different types of case

management service providers,

including insurances, we offer

some specialty services in Medina

County.

Medina County Office for Older

Adults / Options Counseling

Program - MCOOA offers short

term case management to individuals

or families who are ready to

look at alternatives to keep their

aging loved ones in the home

or to transition into alternative

living arrangements. Many times,

as people grow older, they need

assistance to keep aging in place.

A case manager helps seniors and

their caregivers assess their current

living situation and see what

resources are available to help

them, whether it is financial help,

linking to other services, nutritional

help or other supportive services.

MCOOA case management

is voluntary and free of charge.

Options Counseling is available to

any adult, age 18 and over. 330-

723-9514

Emotional Wellness and Catholic

Charities of Medina County

– Catholic Charities Senior Case

Management program is a more

intensive case management service.

and case management for seniors

County JFS – Sometimes,

older adults in the community

fall victim to physical abuse and

neglect, self-neglect or financial

exploitation. Medina County

Adult Protective Services (APS)

investigates all allegations of the

abuse or neglect of adults age

60 and over. Investigations can

involve case management to help

alleviate the causes of maltreatment.

This could include securing

service providers in the home,

obtaining medical treatment for

victims of abuse or neglect, police

involvement or court-ordered

services as well as other supportive

action. All APS investigations and

any case management services that

result from these investigations are

provided at no cost. Referrals for

suspected abuse or neglect of an

older adult can be made by calling

The Aging and Disability Resource

Center (ADRC) provides

the public with a warm and welcoming

office to get information,

assistance, referrals and apply for

benefits. Consultations with family,

friends, caregivers and providers

are free, they are confidential and

unbiased. For seniors as well as

those ages 18+ with disabilities, it

is the first step to receiving information

about local resources

for individuals. Our ADRC staff

knows how to help you find out

what makes sense for you, choose

what you need to stay as independent

as possible, as long as possible,

while stretching your dollars as

far as possible.

We help you

stretch your dollar

We screen and advise people

regarding benefits to save them

money and we assist in applying

for these benefits. Food, utilities,

and medicine are a few of the

areas of service that can be applied

for to help make ends meet!

We help you navigate

MEDICARE,

MyCare Ohio and the

healthcare maze

Would it help to better understand

MEDICARE & MyCare

Ohio? We have 6 certified

OSHIIP counselors to help people

navigate the healthcare maze.

Our office helped over 300 people

and their families choose a health

care plan during “open enrollment”.

Help with federal, state,

and private (OPERS & STRS)

insurances is also available. ADRC

representatives also provide verbal

and written information and professional

guidance over the phone.

We help you review your

long-term options

Would it help to have options

looking ahead to possible long-

term care? We encourage people to

be proactive in planning for their

future care. We help you make a

plan with community services and

support that empower you to be

as independent as long as possible!

Your independence at home will

allow you to age in place and save

money.

Find out how we

can help you

We would love to come and talk

to seniors and people with disabilities

over 18 about this program.

Please feel free to call us to set an

appointment!

More than two million Ohioans

are eligible for the Golden

Buckeye card, honored at 20,000

businesses statewide. Golden

Buckeye cardholders have saved an

estimated $2.5 billion since 1976.

All Ohioans age 60 or older, as

well as adults age 18-59 who have

disabilities as defined by Social Security,

are eligible for a free Golden

Buckeye card.

How to Get a Card

Ohio residents who hold current

Ohio Driver Licenses or State

ID cards automatically receive

their Golden Buckeye cards in

the month of their 60th birthdays.

Individuals who do not have a

current license or State ID, as well

as people under age 60 who are

eligible due to disability, or who

otherwise do not receive their

card automatically, may apply for

a card at most public libraries and

senior centers. Due to ID, age and

disability (when appropriate) verification

requirements, you cannot

apply for a Golden Buckeye card

online or by phone.

How to Get a

Replacement Card

If your Golden Buckeye card

has been lost, stolen or damaged,

call 1-866-301-6446 to request a

replacement.

Where to Use Your Card

Since its inception, the Golden

Buckeye program has been a small

business program. Thus, you are

most likely to find locally owned

small businesses who honor the

card. Merchants of all types (e.g.,

restaurants, retail, auto care, medical

and more) voluntarily offer

special savings or deals for Golden

Buckeye cardholders. [The savings

percentage off a total purchase or

special deals on certain products or

services.] Limitations may apply.

Ask anywhere you spend money

about a Golden Buckeye or senior

discount. Some participating

merchants display the Golden

Buckeye logo on their door, in

their window or at the checkout,

but many do not. Unfortunately,

we are unable to provide a list of

participating merchants because it

is constantly changing. However,

you’ll find some examples of the

types of businesses that offer the

card below. Please check back, as

these lists are updated often. Visit

our page on Facebook for more

business suggestions and tips.

Your Golden Buckeye card

includes the Ohio’s Best Rx

prescription drug discount

program. If you lack prescription

drug insurance, have

coverage limits or have a prescription

that isn’t covered by

your insurance, your Golden

Buckeye/Ohio’s Best Rx card

could offer significant savings

over regular retail prices. You

may qualify for Ohio’s Best Rx,

even if you do not qualify for

Golden Buckeye.

How to Obtain a Disabled Parking Permit in Ohio

Anyone who has a disability that limits mobility by

impeding the ability to walk can apply for an Ohio

Disability parking placard or disability plates. The

disability must be certified by the person’s physician

or chiropractor. Disabilities that qualify include

visual problems, cardiac, arthritic, respiratory and

orthopedic conditions.

Instructions Difficulty: Moderately Easy

Step 1

Determine that you meet the definition of disability according

to State of Ohio regulations and that the medical condition

can be certified as a qualified disability by a physician

or chiropractor.

Step 2

Obtain the application forms from the Ohio Bureau of Motor

Vehicles (BMV) website. Download “For, BMV 4826” for disability

plates. Complete the pertinent parts of the applicable

form.

Step 3

Request a prescription from your physician or chiropractor

which details the nature of the disability and how long the

disability is expected to last. The application will be rejected

if the expected ending date of the disability is not included.

Indicate if the disability is permanent. Placards expire

on the date specified by the physician or chiropractor but

cannot exceed five years.

Step 4

Take the application form along with the prescription from

the physician or chiropractor to any local Deputy Registrar’s

office, or mail it to Ohio BMV at the address on the form.

Enclose the proper fee amounts as shown on the form.

Improve Cash Flow,

Eliminate Mortgage Payments for Life,

and Stay in Your Own Home.

Seniors Can Use their Home’s Equity

However They Wish with a Reverse Mortgage

A Canton, Ohio couple built

their dream home on a golf course,

enjoying the life they had worked

and planned for together. When

the husband was diagnosed with

cancer a decade later, they feared

that if he did not survive, with

only one salary, the wife would

struggle with mortgage payments.

Then they learned how a reverse

mortgage could completely eliminate

mortgage payment as long

as either of them were alive, and

remained living in their dream

home. They can now focus on

the husband’s health and enjoy

life without mortgage payments

for the remainder of their lives!

Though he continues to battle

the disease, his outcome appears

favorable.

Pay Off Debt,

Buy a Home,

Increase Cash Flow

Insured by the Federal Housing

Administration, home equity

conversion mortgages (HECMs)

allow people who are 62 or older

to tap a portion of their home equity

without having to move. You

can use a HECM to buy a home,

make home repairs, cover health

needs, or pay for the challenges

that may come with aging. It can

be another excellent tool in your

financial planning.

The loan is repaid after the borrower

moves out or dies.

Eligibility

Seniors who own their primary

residence outright or have small

mortgages and are not delinquent

on any federal debts may qualify.

Eligible property types include:

single-family homes; a two- or

four-unit homes with the borrower

living in one unit; HUD-approved

condo projects; or FHA-compliant

manufactured homes.

You Never Owe More

Than the Home’s Value

- No Matter How Much

You Borrow

You will never owe more than

the value of your home in a reverse

mortgage loan, regardless of how

much you borrow. And if the balance

is less than your home’s value

at the time of repayment, you or

your heirs keep the difference.

Learn how much you can receive

from a reverse mortgage on your

primary residence by consulting

with a reverse mortgage professional.

Are you ready for the

Silver Tsunami?

by Laura Toth

If you haven’t heard the term

before, you will; the great ‘Silver

Tsunami’, used by many since the

1980s to describe the age progression

of the Baby Boomer Generation.

Society has known that this

generation will age….and you all

have, and aged very well!

Medina County’s

Over 60 Set is Growing

It is a fact that right here in

Medina County we are seeing an

increasing number of individuals

turn age 60 every day. According

to the Scripps Gerontology Center,

in 2010, 19.3% of the population

of Medina County was age

60 or over, in 2020 that number is

expected to be 25.8% and in 2030,

it will be 31%.

More Seniors, More Options

With the State of Ohio projecting

in 2030 Medina County

population of 194,510, that means

we will have over 60,000 people in

the county over age 60. More and

more, individuals are choosing to

Medina County estimates for

age 60 and over populations

From the Scripps Gerontology Center

age in place and this magazine is

such a great tool to help with your

choice, whatever that may be.

One of the most important

things you can do in life is to plan,

that becomes even more pertinent

as we age.

Resources for Decision Making

Most people enjoy making their

own decisions and making their

own plans. Taking the time and

doing some research can really

help you make better decisions in

every area of your life.

THE

We are all witnesses to the takeover

of technology. Part of that

takeover involves less time for customer

service, which is so important!

The more information that

you can acquire regarding products

and services, the better prepared

you can be when the time comes

to utilize them.

You are Not Alone!

The great news about being in

an aging population is that you are

not alone! Statistically, a third of

the population will be 60 or over

in the next 10 years.

It is an exciting time to be living

in and we will see the world open

up and cater to those who are

aging – we are already seeing this

in the construction of more independent

facilities across the county

and for individuals of all incomes

and abilities.

We will have more and more activities,

events, stores, restaurants,

products and resources designed

to help you, your family and your

friends through the aging process.

Let’s enjoy it! So don’t think of it

as a tsunami, think of it as riding

the wave into better aging!

Comfort, care and community are hallmarks of the

Echelon Experience.

A unique Senior Living Community,

close to the heart of Historic Medina, Echelon caters to

the evolving needs of older adults.

Seamless continuity from independent to assisted living,

if needed, provides familiar comforts and minimal disruption:

State ID Card: Who Needs One; Where and How to Get One

These days, you need an identification card even to purchase cold

medicine!

Senior citizens who’ve given up the wheel, as well as folks who aren’t

U.S. citizens or don’t drive for any reason (such as age), still have to prove

their identities. That’s where identification cards come in handy. No matter

what the reason you need an ID, the local BMV is the one to administer

a state identification card.

What You Need to Apply

Generally, only a few items are necessary when you apply for this card

(but just like with driver’s licenses, it’s important to have just the right

documents).

Depending on which state you reside in, you will need or will need to

provide:

• A specific identification card application form.

• Your Social Security number.

• An official Social Security card.

• Social Security number identification printout from

the SSA.

• Proof of your birthday and your legal name.

• Certificate of birth (with a seal, must display gender).

• Court order (certified copy) that includes full name and

date of birth.

• Driver license (current or expired less than 6 months).

• Proof of legal presence.

• Certificate of birth (certified with a seal, must display gender).

• Valid U.S. passport or U.S. passport card.

• Naturalization document issued by the U.S.

• Proof of Ohio residency.

• Current insurance policy (automobile, life or premises liability).

• Ohio certificate of title.

• Utility bill (electric, phone, cable, etc.).

• Have your photo and thumbprint taken by an official

staff member.

• Pay a nominal fee of $8.50.

Plan Ahead

The BMV does NOT take appointments for Ohio

ID card applications. The time it takes to receive your

identification card also varies so if you need your card

in a hurry, make sure to plan

ahead. Once you have completed

the process, your new Ohio ID

card will be mailed to you. The

OH BMV will issue you a temporary

document for the meantime.

Apply by Mail

If unable to physically get to the

Bureau of Motor Vehicles offices

to get the ID, customers can

request a Homebound ID packet

or application by calling 614-752-

7600, by email to Registrar@dps.

state.oh.us or by mail to Ohio

BMV, Attn: In House Processing,

1970 West Broad St, Columbus,

43223. The phone line is often

busy, but there is also new “live

chat” option at http://bmv.ohio.

gov/index.aspx to request

the packet.

Medical Verification

After filling out the mailed

packet, a customer can request a

visit by a member of the BMV

field staff, who will come to the

customer to verify the paperwork

and take the photo. This service is

only available for state IDs and the

person must be medically verified.

The information about how to get

medically verified is in the packet,

but it is essentially a letter on doctor’s

official letterhead stating the

person is medically homebound or

confined to their home, and which

is signed and dated by the doctor.
