A Guidebook to Planning for Old Age

Submitted by: Kathleen Flammia, P.A., Board Certified Elder Law Attorney, One Senior Place Resident Business

16548-Loverde 2Joy Loverde. Who Will Take Care of Me When I’m Old? Plan Now to Safeguard Your Health and Happiness in Old Age. New York, NY: Da Capo Press, 2017. 313 pages. Click here to order book via IndieBound.org

Millions of Americans are facing old age essentially alone.  One in three baby boomers is single or no longer part of a couple due to divorce or death.  Others may be in a relationship where chronic illness has struck both partners simultaneously. Children may live too far away or lack the resources to offer a parent meaningful help.

But there is no reason why circumstances like these should bar anyone from a quality old age.  It just takes planning, which is where this empowering book comes in. Full of helpful checklists and worksheetsWho Will Take Care of Me When I’m Old? is an essential guide to preparing for and navigating the inevitable losses that aging entails – the loss of functioning, the loss of loved ones and friends, and the loss of income.

Joy Loverde, a consultant and speaker on aging issues and the author of The Complete Eldercare Planner, has written a self-help book that offers both emotional and practical advice.  The first chapters address overcoming the psychological barriers to planning.  After all, the prospect of growing old and needing care is something most people would prefer not to think about, much less plan for.  One early section suggests ways to avoid self-sabotaging thoughts.  Other section headings include “Lessen the Grip of Guilt” and “Motivate Yourself.”

The book then turns to the planning work at hand.  An early chapter deals with how to stay afloat financially.  Near the top of the list are getting one’s legal affairs in order, including consulting with an elder law attorney.  Loverde suggests ways to create an income stream in retirement and lists scores of job possibilities.  She even has recommendations for lowering grocery bills.

Kathleen FlammiaSucceeding chapters present ideas and resources for successfully aging in place alone, exploring housing options both in the U.S. and abroad, coping with widowhood, “foraging for a family,” staying connected with those you know and making new friends, and evaluating medical providers.  One chapter is devoted to considerations in adopting a pet.

The final chapters deal with strategies for coping when old age becomes seriously challenging.  Loverde covers “the game changer” of chronic illness, including how to effectively advocate for yourself or find a professional to advocate for you.   A chapter titled “‘Just Shoot Me’ Is Not a Plan” maps strategies for ensuring quality care at the end of life.  There is even a list of resources for those considering “suicide tourism.”

Throughout the book, Loverde provides names of helpful organizations, and one fun feature is that each chapter ends with one recommended book, YouTube video, movie, song and TED Talk on that chapter’s topic.  Near the end Loverde includes a multi-page goldmine of useful websites (ElderLawAnswers among them).

This is not the kind of book anyone looks forward to reading, but it is a book that is essential reading for anyone who wants to start laying the groundwork now for the best possible old age.

While the children enjoy the activities, their parents and caregivers secretly shop for toys to help provide a bright Christmas morning. Families attending the event are by invitation only.

Every Day is Veterans Day: One Senior Place hosts free event in Altamonte Springs Sept. 22

A Fitting Tribute to Veterans

One Senior Place Greater Orlando is hosting Every Day is Veterans Day, an annual event that recognizes our country’s veterans.

Sgt Harry Shakes and Don KramerIn order to celebrate and honor the service of U.S. veterans, One Senior Place Greater Orlando, along with Honor Flight Central Florida and VITAS Healthcare, will host Every Day is Veterans Day on Friday, September 22 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at its offices in Altamonte Springs.

Free and open to the public, the event has become a tradition at One Senior Place, and this year, numerous veterans and military organizations will be represented. Every Day is Veterans Day will feature a color guard, musical tribute, celebrity emcee, refreshments and door prizes.

“We feel there’s nothing more important than honoring and remembering the service of our veterans,” said Don Kramer, CEO of One Senior Place. “As providers of advice and services to seniors, caregivers and those approaching retirement, we constantly come into contact with them and understand the critical role they play as mentors to our younger generations and individuals whose sacrifices have helped preserve our freedoms.”

One of the event’s hosts, Honor Flight, is a non-profit organization dedicated to  providing veterans with honor and closure by transporting them to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials created to honor their service and sacrifice.

Top priority is given to WWII veterans and those who may be terminally ill.

The Department of Veterans Affairs estimates 640 WWII veterans die every day, so the time to express thanks to these brave men and women is running out. Honor Flight works to ensure as many as possible get to visit these memorials.

“Veterans have given so much, and it’s important we show them their efforts are not forgotten,” said Donald Menzel, Honor Flight Central Florida marketing director. “Every Day is Veterans Day is a great example of how a community should honor veterans, and we’re proud to be hosting this event with One Senior Place and VITAS Healthcare.”

Highlighting this year’s event will be a patriotic musical salute performed by the CINQ Brass Quintet and Legacy! Choral Ensemble from Central Florida Community Arts.

For the fourth year, the multiple-award-winning Dorie Miller Memorial Post 331 of Orlando will perform Presentation of Colors. Winners of several color guard competitions, Post 331 will also be presented with a Congressional Certificate of Recognition from U.S. Congressman Bill Posey during the event.

Lauren Rowe, best known as the award-winning news anchor for WKMG-TV Local 6 Orlando, will act as celebrity emcee. Rowe is currently president of Rowe Communications and Director of Communications for Orlando Sanford International Airport.

This year, the Vietnam Unforgettable Memories Foundation (VUMF), a group of Vietnamese-American women whose mission is to thank all Vietnam-era veterans for defending their country against communist aggression, will present memorial pins to all Vietnam veterans in attendance.

For those who have passed, the VUMF will present memorial pins to surviving spouses or Gold Star Mothers.

“This is always such a touching and special day for everyone involved, and we’re looking forward to this year’s event more than ever before,” said Kramer. “It just keeps growing, which says a lot about this community and its support of veterans.”

Most of those who will be attending the event served in WWII, Korea and Vietnam, but all veterans are welcome. And while Every Day is Veterans Day is all about the men and women who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, it is free and open to the public.

“Everyone is welcome,” stressed Kramer. “We want everyone to join us in honoring and celebrating the selfless service of those who have given so much.”

While an RSVP is not required, attendees are encouraged to call 407-949-6733 so that organizers can fully accommodate the expected large turnout.

 About Honor Flight – Each Honor Flight is conducted by a chapter of the non-profit network dedicated to transporting as many United States military veterans as possible to see the Washington, D.C. memorials of the respective war(s) in which they fought.   An Honor Flight is at no cost to the veteran.  Currently the Honor Flight network of organizations is focused on transporting veterans of World War II to the National World War II Memorial, and any veteran with a terminal illness to see the memorial of the war in which they fought. Organizers will “naturally transition” their programs to focus on veterans of the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and subsequent wars as the veterans of those wars get older.

Honor Flights arrive at all three of the Washington’s area airports: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, and Washington Dulles International Airport. The veterans are generally escorted by volunteer Guardians, who help them on the flight and around D.C. After landing, the taxiing airplane may be saluted by fire trucks, and passengers are often met by cheering crowds in D.C. or upon their return flight home. More information about Honor Flight is available at their website,https://www.honorflight.org.

Connecting Through Artistic Expression

New art gallery at One Senior Place awakens, inspires and connects the community with the valuable contributions of older adults.

OPENING NIGHT - Doyen GalleryOne Senior Place’s newest resident business, the non-profit Creative Care Association (CCA) and their sponsor, Compass Research, unveil an innovative new art gallery in February with an eye-opening exhibit schedule for the year ahead. Doyen Gallery will display original art showcasing the importance of creative expression in older adults (baby boomers and retirees) – respectfully called “third-age” individuals by the CCA team. Upcoming exhibits feature under-explored subjects such as late-in-life tattoos, life and humor in the hospice care journey, and memory-generating paintings of people with dementia.

This unique addition to Central Florida’s growing art community opens with a mission to defy age-based stereotypes and provoke inter-generational connections. Inspired by a growing cultural movement to embrace elders and find value in their long life experience, CCA’s founder and gallery director, Linda Taylor, found a way to drive that cause forward. “Art has always provoked awareness and progress. It’s a great way to break down barriers and change our cultural biases about aging.” she said.

As a financial planner for caregivers and former caregiver for her deceased father, Taylor sees how a center like One Senior Place effects positive change in the lives of seniors and their families. Familiar with the isolation of older people when mental and physical decline sets in, she says people often lack empathy and understanding about those aging challenges. “Even in the sunset years, there is still so much life, knowledge, and wisdom our third-age population has to share with us. It’s valuable to younger people and validates older ones who think their experience doesn’t matter anymore. In fact, this is the time it’s most significant.” The gallery will provide ongoing opportunities to engage with youth and teach the value of elder interaction. CCA organizers hope it provokes an understanding and empathy among generations that has been long embraced by other cultures worldwide.

One of the highly anticipated displays is the Memories in the Making exhibit in late May. While hosting this Alzheimer’s Association art program at One Senior Place, Teresa Risner (a long-term care advisor) realized how essential creative activities are for improving a person’s quality of life. This weekly activity helps memory challenged families communicate and maintain social connections through painting. Risner notes that even though spectators are impressed at the quality of artwork produced by new advanced age artists, those who actually see it are few and far between. She keenly observes, “The art world tends to follow the cultural norm of avoiding the subject of aging. Meanwhile, art has great capacity for expanding our views of the world. Why aren’t we showing it off?”

Don Kramer, owner of One Senior Place, is enthusiastic about their new addition. “We are pleased and honored that CCA chose this location for the Doyen Gallery. We know seniors can feel invisible in our hectic, youth-oriented society. This turns that situation on its head by celebrating the richness of experience and vision exclusive to those who have lived a long life.” Another fan is the gallery sponsor, Compass Research, a clinical research site which shapes global advancements in advanced age treatments and medication. Spokesperson, Ashley Mathis expressed appreciation for the new venture and a mission which closely aligns with their own. “We look forward to supporting our local seniors with a place to continue finding their own creative expression and display new skills.”

Doyen Gallery celebrates its launch with an opening night reception and preview of upcoming exhibits on Saturday, February 11th at One Senior Place in Altamonte Springs. Guests and artists are invited to come and celebrate with food, music and plenty of art. Space is limited for the event, and pre-registration is required. To register for the reception or obtain additional information about future exhibits, visit CCA’s website at CreativeCareAssociation.org.

Emmy Nominated Report Asks: Are You Ready for ‘Aging in Place?’

WFTV-Channel 9 News Anchor Martie Salt to present Blindsided: The Reality of Caring for Aging Parents at One Senior Place Greater Orlando Educational Seminar

martie-salt-wftv-channel-9-aOrlando, FL – One Senior Place and LTC Advisors will host Blindsided: The Realities of Aging, on Wednesday, December 7 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at its offices in Altamonte Springs. This educational seminar, designed to provide critical information on the costs associated with elder care and how to prepare for them, is FREE and open to the public.

Headlining the event is Martie Salt, WFTV-Channel 9 news anchor, who will screen her highly informative TV special, Blindsided: The Reality of Caring for Aging Parents. After the screening, she will take questions from the audience and discuss her personal journey as a caregiver.

During her TV special, Salt took an in-depth look at the high costs associated with taking care of elderly parents and why most people are not prepared for this inevitability. She also presented sobering information regarding how individuals cannot depend on Medicare or Medicaid to pay for long-term care services. While interviewing Central Florida elder care professionals, it was revealed that most people do not have the finances to carry them through their expected lifetimes.

This growing healthcare crisis will affect millions of Americans — both the elderly and children of aging parents — as the baby boomer generation continues to age. Preparing for the inevitable realities of aging and their associated costs are tantamount to creating financial stability and peace of mind. The goal of this seminar is to educate and inform.
