Too often, individuals do not plan for illness or incapacity and have not executed proper medical or financial directives such as a durable medical power of attorney or a durable financial power of attorney.A power of attorney is a document that is executed by a competent person which gives a nominated agent the authority to manage all or some of a persons medical or financial affairs. A power of attorney is durable if it is able to be used when that person no longer has the capacity to make a financial or medical decision. In the absence of planning, and when the individual is too ill or no longer competent to name an agent to help manage financial and medical affairs, court intervention such as a guardianship or a conservatorship is often necessary. Other times when a guardianship or conservatorship may be necessary include when an individual never had or formed the ability to name a decision-maker for them, where there are conflicts between nominated decision makers, when there are concerns that an agent for someone is inappropriately influencing the incapacitated person, or in the case of a true emergency where a court appointed guardian or conservator is the only way to get a decision made.Guardianships and conservatorships for adults are established through a Colorado probate court for those incapacitated people who need a representative to assist them in making a decision. An incapacitated person in Colorado is defined as an individual who is unable to effectively receive or evaluate information or make or communicate decisions to such an extent that the individual lacks the ability to satisfy essential requirements for physical health, safety, or self-care even with appropriate and reasonably available technological assistance.Guardianships and conservatorships can generally be avoided if you or your loved one has executed a good estate plan. Remember the authority to make decisions for an incapacitated person must be given before that person becomes incapacitated. A basic estate plan should include a will or a trust, a durable medical power of attorney and a durable financial power of attorney. With an increase in the aging population and advances in medical technology, people are living longer. Therefore, it is likely that you or your loved one will face a period of incapacity. Planning for your incapacity is just as important as planning for the distribution of your estate upon your death and a basic estate plan could help to avoid the expense and time of a guardianship or conservatorship proceeding.Editors Note: This article was written & submitted by Marco D.

Caring for a family member with Alzheimer's and dementia can be time consuming and often requires additional resources and support. It is not always easy to know when a loved one is ready to make that transition. The early onset of Alzheimer's and dementia can take years to fully unfold, or in some cases instances of the disease can start happening overnight, making it hard to prepare for what is to come. As a family member, you are not only dealing with its effect on you and your family, but you are also faced with how to best care for your loved one. The most important decision when preparing is one that makes them comfortable, while also providing the best care possible.Those just starting to suffer from Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) may need some help day-to-day but commonly can continue residing in Assisted Living. Many residents currently living in a traditional memory care setting could flourish in a less restrictive and more stimulating environment. Transitional Memory Care is just the program for those who may have memory issues, but are not ready for the more structured memory care. Transitional Memory Care not only supports the resident facing mild memory loss, but with added socialization and a stimulating program, they are also able to maintain their quality of life as they age.It is understood that active socializing stimulates the mind, encourages companionship and provides a sense of overall well-being. The life engagement programming of Transitional Memory Care helps add a sense of enjoyment and quality of living for residents who may be reluctant to participate in social settings. Socialization plays a large role in maintaining quality of life as individuals age. Those who have strong social networks live longer and are healthier. Social engagement has been found to stimulate multiple body systems including the cognitive, cardiovascular, and neuromuscular systems. The best of this programming combines and strengthens relationships through engagement in activities with others who enjoy the same interests and personalization to meet the overall needs of the group. For that reason, the most successful transitional memory care programs have a limited group size, operate at least 5-7 days a week and have structured activities and opportunities for socialization.To learn more about transitional memory care and how it may benefit your loved one, please visit Spectrum Retirements The Residence ClubEditors Note: This article was submitted by Spectrum Retirement Communities, LLC of Denver, Colorado.Read More

Medicare Advantage plans (Part C) are not the same as Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans. Even though most people don't understand the differences, they are very different kinds of insurance. As such, the rules that the beneficiary must follow to receive health care are also very different. Make sure you understand these differences before enrolling.If original Medicare (Parts A & B) is your primary insurance, you are not restricted by HMO or PPO networks for your medical care. Without referrals, you may see any doctor or provider within the U.S. that agrees to see you. Sometimes you can shift drug coverage from Part D to Part B. If you are using insulin, pain medication, or certain inhalers (which can all be pricy, even under Part D), the same active ingredients may be available for use in insulin pumps, pain pumps or nebulizers. These devices are considered Durable Medicare Equipment (DME); therefore, the equipment, as well as the medications administered through the equipment, are covered under Part B, which in many cases will result in substantially lower out of pocket costs for the beneficiary. Talk to your doctor to see if this is an option for you.Medicare Supplement (Medigap) carriers are still allowed to deny coverage due to pre-existing conditions, even with the ACA becoming law. This is one of the most misunderstood aspects of the ACA (Obamacare). When you apply for a Medigap policy outside of being new to Medicare (or recently turning 65), the insurance company in most cases can review your health history and deny coverage if you're health history or current condition doesn't meet their underwriting criteria. This hasn't change under the ACA. Note: There are numerous exceptions to this rule. Consult with a qualified Medicare advisor to learn more.You are allowed to change your Medicare Supplement (Medigap) policy any time throughout the year, not just at open enrollment. If you encounter a large rate increase at any time, you may apply for a Medigap from a different carrier. There are no calendar restrictions. Once approved, you can make the switch. Consult with your qualified Medicare advisor to learn more.Editors Note: This article was submitted by Bill Gundelfinger-Mr. Medicare of Total Retirement Alliance, Medicare Experts.
