Aging in Place with Home-Based Care Possible for Nursing Home Eligible Adults

Many older adults would prefer to stay living in their own homes instead of being transferred to a long term care community.The Program for All-inclusive Care of the Elderly (PACE) has been providing wrap-around care to participants in Montrose and Delta Counties for the past ten years. PACE is a Medicare/Medicaid managed care benefit for adults aged 55 or older who choose to live in their homes despite being certified by the state as nursing home eligible. The goal of the PACE program is to extend participant independence and enhance their quality of life.Senior CommUnity Care is the Western Slopes PACE provider and manages the program with a staff of paid professionals. Presently, there are two PACE day centers and office locations in Montrose and Eckert. Participants must be able to live safely at home within a PACE sites geographic area.The core of the PACE program is the interdisciplinary team. The team works to provide comprehensive medical and social services to the PACE participants. This team includes a primary care physician, nurses, dietician, nursing aides, drivers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, recreational therapists and social workers. The interdisciplinary team meets daily and is responsible for determining care needs, allocating resources, coordination of all services, and development of a comprehensive care plan, which is developed for each individual participant.The care plan addresses a set of functional issues that are relevant to the overall health of the older adult participant. These include cognition, emotional status, social activity, mobility, diagnoses, medications, nutrition and other activities of daily living. Payment for services and monitoring of the quality of the services is authorized and directed by the interdisciplinary team.A PACE Day Center is a location where participants can receive primary care by meeting with a doctor or nurse in the clinic, receive rehabilitation treatments to improve strength and balance, enjoy recreational and social activities, participate in one-on-one or group therapy, receive spiritual support and enjoy a meal. The number of days a participant attends the day center will be discussed with the participant and determined through the assessment process.By caring for frail, older adults through this model, prevention of acute illness and conditions can often be prevented, thereby reducing the number of emergency room visits and hospital re-admissions while allowing the individual to age in place in their own home.Editors Note: This article was submitted by Erin Berge, Regional Marketing Director with Volunteers of America and may be reached at 970-275-1220 or by email at eberge@voa.org

Common Winter Hazards Among the Elderly

When you think of winter, you probably think about the holidays, taking time off work, enjoying winter sports, or visiting with family. If you care for aging loved ones, winter might make you also dwell on common cold-weather hazards that impact the elderly.Here are some hazards you should know about and suggestions for how you can keep your loved one safe:Cold TemperaturesAs the temperature outside drops, the risk of hypothermia rises. Hypothermia is caused by prolonged exposure to the cold, which results in the body losing heat faster.Seniors are at higher risk of developing hypothermia than younger people because the ability to regulate body temperature decreases with age. Suppose your loved one needs dementia care or has other cognitive issues. In that case, they may be at an even higher risk of hypothermia especially if they have difficulty communicating or tend to wander outdoors.Warning signs of hypothermia include:ShiveringExhaustionConfusionLoss of dexterityMemory lossAs body temperature drops, brain function slows, so older adults are also unlikely to realize they are experiencing symptoms making hypothermia even more dangerous. If you suspect hypothermia, seek emergency medical help by dialing 911 or going to the nearest hospital emergency room.Keeping your elder warm through winter is essential, so consider doing the following:Make sure your loved one is dressing appropriately for the weather.Check your loved ones home for drafts and seal up problematic windows or doors.Avoid using space heaters, which can become fire and tripping hazards.Ensure your loved ones heating system is working correctly and they are paying their heating bills. Living in a cold house is a significant risk factor for hypothermia in older adults.Have blankets and warm clothing available.Make sure your loved one is eating enough. Food is required to create energy the body needs to produce heat.Check on your senior frequently (or ask another trusted adult to check on them) to ensure they are comfortable.Ice and SnowAccording to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in four seniors falls annually, leading to 3 million emergency room visits and more than 800,000 hospitalizations. When the ground is covered with snow and ice, the risk of falling for seniors becomes even higher and falls, whether indoors or outdoors, can result in broken bones, head injuries, loss of independence, isolation, fear of a future fall, or even death.Heres how you can reduce your loved ones fall risk during the winter:Have someone clear a path to the front door, mailbox, outdoor trash cans, and other outdoor areas your loved one needs to access.Make sure your loved one is wearing sensible shoes with non-slip soles and using mobility aids if necessary.Encourage your loved one not to venture outdoors if conditions are bad unless there is an emergency.Clean up indoor puddles caused by melting snow and ice tracked in on someones shoes.Encourage visitors to leave their shoes at the front door.Ensure that the house is well-lit on darker winter days.Cold and FluAs winter rolls around, so does cold and flu season. According to the CDC, seniors are at higher risk of catching diseases and are more likely to experience severe complications due to age-related immune system deficiencies. Ask your loved ones doctor if they recommend vaccines for flu, pneumonia, or COVID-19. Other preventative measures include:Washing hands regularlyAsking others to cover their coughs or sneezesAvoiding people who are sickAvoiding crowded events or areas, especially during times of high community spreadAvoiding touching your eyes, mouth, nose, or faceDisinfecting frequently touched surfaces in the home, especially if someone in the home is illPracticing good health habits, such as eating healthy, drinking plenty of fluids, managing stress, getting adequate sleep, and exercisingConsider Whether a Professional Caregiver Could HelpWith the increased risks associated with winter weather, having someone check in on your loved one regularly is critical. However, if family and friends are not nearby, a professional caregiver can visit your loved one as often as needed to monitor the temperature in the house and help your loved one to dress in warm, appropriate clothes.An in-home personal caregiver will provide your elderly loved one with companionship, prevent isolation and supervise trips outside the house providing you with peace of mind, even when you cant be there.

Senior Health Synergy: Collaboration Amongst Organizations

In an era where the aging population is on the rise, addressing the complex needs of seniors requires a united front. Senior Health Synergy, a collaborative effort among healthcare providers, community organizations, and government agencies, emerges as a vital approach to ensure the holistic well-being of our elderly citizens. Healthcare providers, including hospitals and clinics, form the cornerstone of senior health, delivering specialized medical care. When seamlessly integrated with the support provided by local community organizationsoffering social activities, transportation, and essential servicesa comprehensive system emerges. Government agencies contribute by creating supportive policies and frameworks. Breaking down organizational silos through technology facilitates the exchange of information, ensuring seniors receive personalized care. Promoting awareness and education is key to fostering a shared understanding of the challenges seniors face and the benefits of collaborative efforts. In essence, Senior Health Synergy is not just a concept; it's a necessary paradigm shift to guarantee our aging population lives a life of health, dignity, and fulfillment.As we navigate the future, the success of senior health programs will be measured not merely by individual achievements but by the strength of collaborative endeavors. By embracing a united front, we can create a web of support that comprehensively addresses the diverse needs of seniors, ensuring they enjoy their later years with the care and attention they deserve. The synergy among healthcare providers, community organizations, and government agencies, fortified by technology and widespread awareness, paves the way for a future where seniors thrive in an environment of collective well-being and understanding.
