When Going Home Isn’t an Option - Local Professionals Can Simplify Your Search

Making a move to a senior living community can be difficult. Local Placement and Referral Agents recognize and manage the stress of relocating older adults. Agents have significant knowledge of Senior Living Communities in Boulder and the surrounding areas. With over 485 Senior Living options in our area, it is challenging to know where to start. Local agents can be an invaluable ally in your search. During the COVID pandemic, restrictions may prohibit outside visitors from touring in-person. Local agents can offer you insight while arranging virtual tours and educating you on communities. Agents save time. Your budget, care, and desired locations are taken into consideration. Phone calls to check availability and pricing, setting up tours, knowing which communities can meet care needs, and narrowing down the list of options are all part of an Agents job. They empower you to make informed decisions.Concerned that using an expert is expensive? Good news! Since placement agents are typically compensated by communities, they generally do not charge families a fee.The Greater Denver Placement and Referral Alliance (GDPRA) was created in 2018 to educate the public about Professional Placement Agents. Many families do not know this service exists. The GDPRA members adhere to Best Practices and a code of ethics. Working with a GDPRA agent offers peace of mind. What to look for in a local professional placement agent:Assesses care needs, budget, location, and social needsVets the community's quality of careWalks beside you through the processHelps determine the best optionsFinds out availabilitySchedules tours and tours with youActs as a neutral party during the decision makingConnects you to local resourcesLocal agents are not online referral companiesAgents live in your communityThey never sell your private informationThey protect your contact informationThey vet and visit communitiesAgents DONT give you a long list of communities and require YOU to do the workOrganizing the search for senior living takes a considerable amount of time and research. Local agents are happy to simplify and guide you through this experience.Editors Note: This article was submitted by Cameron Crawford, CSA, MBA. Cameron is a member of the GDPRA.

Palliative Care

In the course of illness there are "good days" and "bad days." Days when you can almost forget you're sick, and days you fear you'll never feel well again. Palliative medicine specializes in giving you more good days.What is Palliative Care?With a focus on caring for people of all ages who have ongoing or serious illness, palliative medicine helps individuals and their families through:Relieving pain and other distressing symptoms as a result of a condition or treatment Helping people plan for life around care and treatment Supporting patients and families through the stress of living with an illness Improving the overall quality of life for patients and their families.Agape palliative visits are always made by a Nurse Practitioner, and sometimes a social worker, if requested for additional support.Agape does not replace existing providers. Instead, we work with a patient's current physicians, including specialists, adding a layer of care and often a central point of communication.Palliative care is covered by Medicare, Medicaid and most private insurance. Studies have shown that those receiving early palliative care not only have improved quality of life but less depression and in some cases, longer overall life expectancy.Start feeling better today through the support of palliative care. The sooner our team can become involved, the more we can help.

4 Ways to Reduce Stress From Caregiver Emotions

Caring for seniors is an emotional jobOne caregiving challenge that doesn't get enough attention is dealing with the strong emotions that unavoidably come up.Caregiving is hectic and exhausting, so it's natural to push aside the feelings and focus on concrete tasks especially when those feelings are ones, we don't want to admit to.The problem is, if these emotions aren't dealt with, they can seriously damage your health.Dealing with these strong emotions rather than ignoring them significantly reduces stress, improves your ability to care for yourself, and helps you be realistic and get the help you need.We describe top caregiving emotions and share 4 ways to help you manage difficult feelings to reduce stress and improve your health.Common caregiver emotionsWhile caring for an older adult, many caregivers have strong and conflicting feelings.Top emotions include:Anger at your older adults frustrating behaviorAnger at their disease or the aging process itselfAnger that you've been forced to take on so much responsibilityGuilt over thoughts and feelings (like wishing they would pass away sooner to prevent more suffering, being angry, wanting to quit, etc.)Anxiety because you don't know what will happen nextFrustration that you can't stop what's happeningDespair that there aren't any treatments that can restore them to the way they used to beSadness for all that you've both already lostAnticipatory grief, which means that you're dealing with losing your older adult before they actually pass away4 ways to manage strong caregiver emotions1. Don't ignore your feelings Ignoring anger, sadness, and other caregiver emotions only makes things worse.Forcing away your feelings can cause high stress, sudden angry outbursts (and guilt afterwards), hopelessness, unhealthy life choices, sleep problems, or depression.Acknowledging and identifying your feelings may be uncomfortable at first.But the more you accept what you're feeling, the less likely you'll be plagued by those negative health side effects.2. Don't be strong and silentYou don't need to pretend that everything is fine. You're in the middle of a serious, sometimes scary, and literally life-changing situation.Not allowing yourself to cry, show anger, or say that you're frustrated and need help adds an incredible amount of stress to an already stressful situation.Instead, give yourself permission to share with supportive family and friends. Talk about what's really happening, how you're feeling about it, and what kind of help you need.You'll get rid of the extra stress from pretending, get more understanding from others, and be more open to support.

Journey of Care: Assisting Seniors in Relocation

IntroductionTransitioning to a new living arrangement can be a daunting task, especially for seniors who have spent many years in their homes. Whether downsizing to a smaller space or moving to a senior living community, the process of relocation can be overwhelming for both seniors and their families. In this guide, we'll explore practical tips and strategies for assisting seniors in relocation with care and compassion.Understanding the ChallengesRelocating seniors comes with its unique set of challenges, including:Emotional Attachment: Seniors often have strong emotional ties to their homes, making it difficult to part with belongings and memories.Physical Limitations: Health issues and mobility issues may hinder seniors' ability to pack and move their possessions.Decision Overload: The process of sorting through belongings and making decisions about what to keep, donate, or discard can be overwhelming.Financial Considerations: Seniors may be on a fixed income, making it challenging to afford moving expenses and new living arrangements.Tips for Assisting Seniors in Relocation- Navigating the journey of relocation with seniors requires patience, empathy, and careful planning. Here are some tips to help make the process smoother:Start Early: Begin planning the relocation well in advance to allow ample time for sorting, packing, and organizing. Starting early can help alleviate stress and ensure a more organized transition.Communicate Openly: Engage seniors in discussions about their relocation preferences and concerns. Listen attentively to their needs and desires, and involve them in decision-making as much as possible.Create a Plan: Develop a detailed plan outlining the steps involved in the relocation process. Break down tasks into manageable steps and establish timelines to stay on track.Downsize Thoughtfully: Encourage seniors to declutter their belongings by sorting through items and deciding what to keep, donate, or sell.

These professionals can provide valuable guidance and support throughout the relocation process, from decluttering to packing and unpacking.Ensure Safety and Accessibility: Prioritize safety and accessibility in the new living space by arranging for necessary modifications or accommodations.
