Alaska, Arizona, Idaho, North Carolina, West Virginia and Wyoming were added to the list on Saturday, a week after Holder made a similar announcement concerning seven other states. The move comes after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear appeals of cases that sought to overturn bans on same-sex marriages. ...

  • Social Security reform should boost benefits and taxes, poll finds

    Mark Miller
    24 Oct 2014 | 6:50 am
    It’s no surprise that a new public opinion survey would find broad public opposition to cutting Social Security benefits. But a survey released this week [PDF] by the National Academy of Social Insurance finds a strong majority of Americans actually support boosting benefits – and taxing themselves to pay for it. The survey uses a polling technique called trade-off analysis to identify a package of preferred options. The NASI survey asked people about 12 ways to reform Social Security in a way that would close the program’s long-range financing gap. The choices included…
  • Why Social Security COLAs aren’t keeping up with seniors’ costs

    Mark Miller
    23 Oct 2014 | 6:01 pm
    Social Security’s annual inflation adjustment is one of the program’s most valuable features. But it’s time to adjust the adjustment. Retirees will get a 1.7 percent bump in their Social Security benefit next year, according to the Social Security Administration, which announced the annual cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) on Wednesday. Recipients of disability benefits and Supplemental Security Income also will receive the COLA. That reflects continuing slow inflation in the economy – the COLA has averaged 1.6 percent over the past four years – but it’s not…

    Seniors have flocked to Medicare Advantage in recent years, attracted by savings on premiums and the convenience of one-stop shopping. But as the annual Medicare enrollment season began this week, a memorandum from federal officials to plan providers surfaced that serves as a big red warning flag. The upshot: Assess the quality of any Advantage plan before you sign up. The memorandum, first reported by the New York Times, described ongoing compliance problems uncovered in federal audits of Advantage and prescription drug plans. These include inadequate rationales for denial of coverage,…

    In North Carolina, a television ad attacks incumbent Democratic Senator Kay Hagan for supporting a “controversial plan” that “raises the retirement age” for Social Security. The ad comes from Crossroads GPS, the super PAC run by Republican Karl Rove. A Republican attack on a Democrat for cutting Social Security benefits? It’s just one instance where voters are hearing confusing claims about Social Security reform. Social Security has surfaced as a major issue in Senate rates in Alaska, Colorado, Iowa and Arkansas. Seeing through the fog can be difficult. Hagan, for example, left…
  • Timing your Social Security filing: Where to get assistance with the big decision

    Mark Miller
    8 Oct 2014 | 6:00 am
    Deciding when to file for Social Security is one of the most consequential financial decisions most Americans will make about their retirement. Opting to claim benefits early, at the Full Retirement Age (FRA), or later can mean hundreds of thousands of dollars in higher–or lower–lifetime benefits for a married couple. But Social Security’s rules are complex, so most of us could use some guidance. Yet, help can be difficult to find. Social Security Administration (SSA) staffers can only give you general information about benefit options–they are prohibited as a matter…

    If you are looking after a loved one, helping to maintain their dental health can be a difficult subject to broach. Tooth loss and dental disease, along with decreased finger dexterity and general mobility which makes it difficult to properly clean teeth, can all take a toll on an elderly person’s dignity. Whether you are a family caregiver or a professional carer, you may encounter a bit of resistance initially. However, ensuring oral health is an essential part of caring for an elder’s overall health. Poor oral health has been linked to higher incidence of lung infections and can…
  • Recognizing Verbal Abuse Against Elders in Nursing Homes

    6 Aug 2014 | 7:00 am
    Most of us love our parents and want them to have the best possible life in their old age. But we don’t live in a culture that’s very friendly towards older people. They are often left to fend for themselves and not all of them have children who have the time to visit them regularly. Nursing homes have long been an option for people in such situations. In many cases we keep our elderly family members in nursing homes thinking they will receive the best possible care and treatment there. But unfortunately, things don’t always work out like that. The truth is that abuse against the…

None of us remain strong forever and the day will come that you need help making it from point A to point B, but we’ll leave that alone for another day. When giving seniors care it is a touchy issue when it comes to aiding them. Like everyone, seniors want to remain thriving members of society but it is physically impossible for them to do so. Here are some ways that you can ease the transition from ability to disability with seniors. Encouraging…

    The Ebola virusRecent reports of two nurses becoming infected with Ebola begs the question of whether they were lax in following infection-control protocols. Even if that's true (and it may not be) the bigger mystery is healthcare community's apparent nonchalance. TV's talking heads are generally not alarmed. NBC medical correspondent Nancy Snyderman reportedly snuck out to get some take-out food.

    The perspective of the storyteller is at the heart of Gawande’s latest book Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End. He tells us that life is meaningful because it is a story (p 238). In our current society, the end of the story tends to be one of dwindles and loneliness in a nursing home or of anxiety-driven medical interventions within a hospital. He offers up a different story. Gawande describes styles of assisted living that truly assist living; champions the need for geriatricians; and encourages each reader to “contemplate the unfixables in our life, the decline we will…

That is almost 6% of deaths.As we all know a new, more widespread outbreak of Ebola had started. I began to read about the virus, the symptoms, the treatment, and the spread.

    In discussions with palliative care social workers, there is a sense that we are afforded somewhat unique opportunities in medical social work.

A woman who is 65 today can expect to live an average of 21 more years (to age 86), and a man at 65 has an average life expectancy of 18 more years (to age 83).

Twenty years is a long time to spend catching up on sleep and watching TV. And many people are unprepared to take on the responsibility of filling their days with more meaningful activities.

Starting in school then continuing throughout life we are taught the importance of being extroverted and personable, outgoing and confident. Shyness is associated with weakness.

    Many people use 65 as their target retirement age. At that age you can begin to receive Medicare to cover your healthcare needs. However, most people now need to wait until 66 or 67 to collect unreduced Social Security benefits. And if you decide to call it quits at 65 you can expect to enjoy 20 or more years of retirement. Today’s 65-year-olds are largely healthy and likely to live longer than earlier generations. But that doesn’t mean they’re not starting to feel the wear and tear of an aging body and mind. And it is not going to get any easier. None of us will ever be any younger…

    Turning age 65 does not necessarily mean you are ready to retire. Hitting a certain age neither guarantees nor necessitates retirement. Your retirement should begin when you determine you are ready and able to do so, regardless of how long you have lived. Here’s how to tell if you are not quite ready to retire: You cannot financially swing it. If you have done an analysis of your expected inflow and outflow of retirement funds and are running in the red, retiring now is not a good idea. In a 2014 Employee Benefit Research Institute survey, only 18 percent of workers say they are very…

    In senior living, a company’s brand is reflective of its reputation, not only in the eyes of consumers and their families, but to state regulators as well. Operators who have gone the extra mile to polish their brands through the use of various quality measurements have seen tangible successes in their operations. Whether it’s maintaining a specialized audit process to measure quality across one’s own communities, leveraging technology or striving for accreditation, private-pay senior living providers have been able to move the needle when it comes to driving occupancy, enhancing care…

    Kathy Birkett
    23 Oct 2014 | 5:34 pm
    Dental care - can it really be all that important to seniors and their family caregivers? Family caregivers have so much responsibility every day just getting all the jobs done. We often don’t get all the daily tasks completed as the sun begins to set. We merely add the unfinished tasks to the next day’s list in hopes they will finally get accomplished then. One task that we should all ensure is completed every day is good oral care for our senior loved ones. Having a healthy mouth and teeth help to keep our seniors healthy overall. If they experience mouth pain, bleeding gums, poor…

This degenerative, debilitating and irreversible disease is rising, not only in the United States but also across the world.

    Kathy Birkett
    16 Oct 2014 | 1:06 pm
    We cringe at the thought of our loved ones being diagnosed with Parkinson’s or dementia – - and too many of them have been already. What if they are diagnosed with both? Alzheimer’s and other dementias have become the focus of much-needed research. One outcrop of that research is the ability to learn more about other neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s Dementia and Lewy Body Dementia. Parkinson’s disease result from a reduction in dopamine production in the brain causing an inability to control the bodies’ movements. Parkinson’s usually manifests with…

    Deep vein thrombosis doesn’t sound like something that should strike fear in your mind or even be a serious condition… …unless you or a loved one have faced it head-on. Doctor’s warn that we, as family caregivers, should know the signs of deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or blood clots in veins in the lower extremities of our senior loved ones — and what to do if you encounter them. DVTs can be dangerous, especially if the clot breaks off and finds its way into the lungs, where it becomes a pulmonary embolism (PE). The clot could even be fatal. DVTs do not lead to strokes…

    [updated June 10th at 11:56am] Dual eligibles, those people who qualify for both Medicare and Medicaid, make up a disproportionate amount of federal and state health care spending. New York State is no exception. More than 700,000 people in New York are simultaneously enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid. The State has the highest annual cost per dual eligible, $30,384, which is double the national average of $15,459.

    According to the U.S. Census Bureau’s data the current life expectancy for women is 83 years, and 78 years for men. It is not yet known why women tend to live longer, but experts suggest a combination of factors like genetics and a general partiality of men for riskier behavior like smoking, drinking alcohol, or fighting can be factors in these statistical estimations. With many men and women living longer than ever before, it opens up a larger possibility for more people to develop age related disorders like Alzheimer’s.

  • What are the Benefits of Yoga for Seniors – Interview with Cat Kabira

    Margaret Manning
    23 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    There are so many misconceptions about yoga. Some people believe that the goal of yoga is to “get flexible.” Others think that it is only for the young and fit. This last belief is particularly frustrating because the benefits of yoga for seniors are greater than for any other group. After all, we have decades of stress stored in our bodies! The truth is that yoga is so much more than just a set of exercises and poses. It is an approach to life that includes breathing, relaxation, diet and meditation. Since so many women in the Sixty and Me community have asked about yoga, I decided to…
  • 5 Things I Learned About Beauty After 60 from Celebrity Makeup Artist, Ariane Poole

    Margaret Manning
    21 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    Professional makeup artist, Ariane Poole, has a wonderfully holistic attitude to beauty in general and makeup in particular. During our interview about beauty after 60, she reminded us that women are beautiful at every age. The problem is that, as we get a little older, we don’t always do the best job of bringing out our inner beauty. On the inside, we are radiant, but, sometimes, we need a little help expressing ourselves. This is exactly what Ariane aims to do in her work as a professional makeup artist. According to Ariane, there are 5 things that all women over 60 can do to create a…
  • 6 Unexpected Gift Ideas for Women Over 60

    Margaret Manning
    19 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    I’m the kind of person who loves to give gifts. But, as I’ve gotten a little older, I’ve started to notice that buying presents for my friends has become more difficult. Maybe women over 60 place less value on material things. Or, maybe our tastes simply change as we age. Whatever the reason, I’ll be the first to admit that finding gift ideas for women over 60 is tough – even when you’re one yourself! Fortunately, as the founder of Sixty and Me, a community of over 50,000 women over 60, I have plenty of people to turn to for ideas. So, to help you choose the perfect gift for the…
  • Reignite the Spark: Try Yoga for Better Sex After 60

    17 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    What if someone told you your sex life could be better after 60 than it was in your 20s? Many people assume age-related changes in the body mean a decrease in sexual activity or at least sexual ability. However, many older yogis discover that yoga can help them re-invigorate their sex lives in a variety of ways. Here are a few reasons to try yoga for better sex after 60.Read More

    15 Oct 2014 | 2:52 pm
    Some of the most significant transitions in life often do not come when we expect them to. They seem so distant from our current situation that we fail to be prepared if a transition like finding care for a family member quickly falls upon us. Cariloop spent time walking the streets of Dallas asking passersby what they knew about assisted living and what their preference was when it came to caring for aging loved ones. The overwhelming majority of respondents knew very little about assisted living communities and admitted they would rather take care of their aging loved ones themselves.

    Paul Stout, a man who lives in a small southern Missouri town, mows his own lawn as well as his elderly neighbor’s lawn every two weeks. He always takes the stairs when given the opportunity, every morning he walks around his block fifteen times and at family dinners he is the first to make a joke. Golfing is his passion and when he isn’t participating in a golf league, he invites his friends and family to play — and Paul records the best score the majority of the time.

  • Activities to Stay Fit Throughout Changing Seasons in Life

    2 Oct 2014 | 9:28 am
    Changing seasons significantly influence the activities we participate in. When the heat of summer bears down upon us, we like to hop in the pool and swim. In the fall and spring we may enjoy running in the crisp air—whether it’s chasing after a soccer ball or training for a marathon. Winter tends to push us indoors, forcing our reluctant bodies onto the treadmill or out on the basketball court. No matter what the activity is specifically, transitioning between seasons always seems to affect the type of activities we participate in. Cariloop understands that transitioning stages of life…

    After an extended period of relative calm, the past week saw a surge in volatility with global equity markets dropping sharply. By mid-week, the S&P 500 had given up its gains for the year. While periods of volatility are not unusual, we want to share our thoughts on what this might mean for your investment strategy. What is going on? The market is reacting to new information regarding future economic growth. A slow-down in Europe and concerns about growth rates in China has dampened investor optimism, driving down stock prices and driving up the prices of government bonds. The market is…
  • Down-Home Advice to Help You Harvest Savings for Your Future

    14 Oct 2014 | 6:30 am
    On the farm, Fall is the time of year when farmer’s typically have a chance to reap the rewards of their labor by harvesting their crops and preparing the soil for next year’s planting. While many of us aren’t farmers, we can learn a lot from their practical wisdom as the daylight diminishes and we prepare for the winter ahead. “Sowing is not as difficult as reaping.” This is an old farm saying but it can just as easily apply to saving money! While saving takes discipline, it’s easier than to try to find money that doesn’t exist when you are already retired!!

It’s hard to believe that what started out as a cool idea is now an industry standard for delivering professional 401(k) management. Today, more than 800,000 people rely on us for managing their retirement accounts. And without them, we could never have reached this milestone. We also couldn’t have done it without the help of amazing employers and 401(k) plan providers, who make the delivery of our services possible. So thank…

    You’ve heard us talk about the value of getting help with your 401(k) before. Our research shows that people who get help do better than those who don’t. Often, those people closest to retirement are those that need the most help. So it’s no wonder that Money Management Intelligence is reporting our findings that older participants are using managed accounts to help with their retirement savings. “The financial crisis showed people that they didn’t know how to invest; didn’t know what they were doing,” said Nancy Gerseny, corporate retirement plans strategy…

    I have written a few posts in the past on gun violence and school shootings and now sadly I am doing it again. After each shooting there is an uproar from some parents and a few politicians calling for stricter gun laws and all kinds of nasty rhetoric from the NRA in defense of guns. Nothing ever gets done. So here we are again. In Washington state a teenage boy went on a shooting spree in his school cafeteria, because he was jilted by a girlfriend. He killed one student and seriously wounded others before he killed himself.Once again people are looking for answers to stop the killings, but…
  • Your Medications Could Kill You

    When I was younger I didn't know anything about medications and I don't think too many other people did either. When you went to the doctor he gave you some medicine, which you hoped would take care of what ailed you. Most likely you didn't even know the names of the medications and didn't worry about side effects.All of this has changed in the past few years with drug companies advertising their products. Every day we are bombarded by ads for medications for conditions including hay fever, ED, bronchitis, diabetes, atrial fibrillation and a myriad of other diseases. I think these commercials…

We've all heard a little something about ebola, the deadly disease that every now and then breaks out in Africa killing most of those affected. Most Americans didn't care because it only killed Black people in Africa. For Americans it was out of sight, out of mind. But not this time. Someone from Africa, who was infected by the ebola virus, came to the US, where he was hospitalized and subsequently died. Two nurses were infected, but are doing…

    When Kevin and I first moved to the Rochester area we had to start furnishing our home from scratch.  Needless to say buying furniture for a large house was very expensive.  We bought the basics, such as a bed, sofa, kitchen tables and chairs for the living room. As money began to run low we saw the need to economize. Both of us like vintage or antique furniture so we decided to look around the area for antique shops and garage and estate sales. One day we happened upon a quaint little store on Main Street in Brockport.  We had lunch nearby so we decided to drop in and see what…
