    The annual Medicare enrollment period starts on October 15th and ends of December 7th. This is the opportunity for seniors to review their prescription drug or Medicare Advantage coverage, and to select new plans. With dozens of plans available in most parts of the country, Medicare shopping can be a complex chore. Re-shopping your plan annually makes sense — insurance companies often change their offerings year-to-year in ways that can increase drug costs by thousands of dollars, or make it more difficult to get certain drugs. At the same time, your drug needs may have changed since…

    When I was a youngster, and through my grown up years, my greatest pleasure was being at the beach, either taking a walk, being in the water, collecting sea shells or just looking at the waves, it was always a great pleasure for me. That just might be one of the reasons I loved seeing the play, "The Little Mermaid," at North Shore Music Theatre, so much. The minute the play started I was hooked. The opening scene took place under the ocean where I saw puppets on sticks to represent schools of fish. To me they looked like REAL fish swimming in the water and I felt like I was there with…

  • Why it pays to shop your Medicare coverage this fall

    Mark Miller
    2 Oct 2014 | 6:02 am
    Your Medicare prescription drug plan sent you a letter recently. Chances are, you didn’t read it – and that could be costing you money. Health insurance companies must send an annual notice of changes for the coming year to Part D prescription drug and Part C Medicare Advantage plans. The notice, which must be delivered to you by Sept. 30 each year, details changes in premiums and co-pays, and lets you know whether your medication will be covered in the year ahead. The notice comes just before the annual plan enrollment period, which kicks off on Oct. 15 and runs until Dec. 7.

    Mark Miller
    1 Oct 2014 | 4:00 am
    Medicare Advantage is a fast-growing form of private Medicare plan that offers all-in-one medical and drug coverage. About 33 percent of Medicare enrollees are expected to opt for an Advantage plan in 2015. Most Medicare Advantage plans are managed care programs, such as HMOs or PPOs. Some private fee-for-service and specialty plans are offered, although the ACA requires all Advantage plans to create provider networks. When you join an Advantage plan, Medicare provides a fixed payment to the plan to cover your Medicare Part A (hospital) and Medicare Part B (medical insurance) coverage. There…

    It’s a rude awakening for a growing number of seniors: They file for Social Security, then discover that the federal government plans to take part of their benefit to pay off delinquent student loans, tax bills, child support or alimony. The practice came under a spotlight this month when the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) released findings on the problem of rising student debt burdens among retirees – and how the government goes after delinquent borrowers by going after wages, tax refunds and Social Security checks. Under federal law, benefits can be attached and…

    Lynne and Tim Martin. Photo: Reto Klar. For Americans looking to retire abroad, deciding where to live can be a challenge. But Lynne and Tim Martin took that question off the table by deciding to retire everywhere and anywhere. In 2011 the couple opted for what might be called extreme retirement abroad: They sold their Paso Robles, California, home, jettisoned all but a few treasured possessions – which they put into a storage locker – and became nomads. Since then, they have lived in short-term rental apartments and houses around the world, usually found through HomeAway.com, the…

    29 Sep 2014 | 11:39 am
    A good rule of thumb for end of life issues should be ‘forget what you think you know about normal.’ This is where much of the confusion and misguided expectations comes from in hospice. People try to overlay what they understand about a healthy or diseased body onto a person whose body is shutting down. The problem is they are not the same. Somewhere along the line, a healthy body becomes diseased, and then, usually unrecognized by most, a transition from chronic disease shifts to actual dying. This transition begins weeks and months ahead of an actual death, and yet everyone surrounding…

John rides like an airplane engine on a shopping cart; Staci uses her head.” I was mountain biking in Cherokee Park. A storm front was moving in so the temperature and humidity were dropping and it was breezy. I felt so good! Like Rose and Jack on the bow of the Titanic. I was queen of my body and that trail.

  • Are tech innovators ageist -- or have they just not considered seniors?

    Laurie Orlov
    29 Sep 2014 | 7:48 am
    Some cool tech enters the market. Consider the Apple introduction of the HealthKit (for the health care industry) and the smartwatch which joins the Pebble (which helped fuel interest in smartwatches) and Samsung smartwatches.  Intel found smartwatches intriguing enough to sponsor a clinical trial in conjunction with Parkinson's disease.  Why? Smartwatches (and smartphones) contain accelerometers that enable the device to determine sudden motion -- like detecting a fall, gyroscope and compass to detect whether you're on of the 61 million people out there running.  And…

    The numbers of our boomer lives.  So you launch your market messages with an assertion about the addressable market for a product. So one of the timeworn ways used is to start with a concept.  For example, they are going to turn 65 and are retiring -- or perhaps they are unretiring and starting businesses -- at a rate that is big, really, really, big.  So let's consider the following oddity. In 2010, boomers were going to turn 65 at the rate of 10,000 per day for the next 18 years. Then in 2014, you perhaps noticed a different phrase about boomers, including this one from…

    Tech we talk about -- health -- the much-hyped investment opportunity. We talk ad nauseum about health innovation, often in the context of an aging society -- from StartupHealth, Rock Health, Health 2.0, and AARP's own Health@50+.  And we're wired beyond saturation with new health device tech announcements, from the advance swooning about Apple everything (never seen so many health dreams and now, security worries!) and Samsung nearly-everything-else (never seen so many device shapes!)  And there was plenty of health tech talk at the AARP Ideas@50+ in San Diego -- see Health…

  • Cognitive Impairment and Normative Aging

    Society of Certified Senior Advisors
    29 Sep 2014 | 3:15 pm
    Most people believe that memory decline is a normal part of aging, but this is a myth. Memory tends to slow with age like other functions, but decline in the ability to remember things is not a normal part of the aging process. It’s important to understand and recognize the difference.One of the most common questions health professionals face when working with agingpopulations and hearing complaints of memory loss, forgetting names, and having difficulty finding words is, “Is this normal?” As people get older, these experiences become frightening. Americans worry that these are signs of…
  • Write Your Living Will Now to Ease Burdens Later

    A living will is a legal document that indicates what medical treatments and life-sustaining measures you want or don't want. If the time comes when you can’t make your own decisions, a living will can be valuable for your family and doctor and help ensure your preferences are honored.  Approximately 80 percent of Americans fail to share their wishes for their end-of-life care, leaving family members and doctors to decide what life-saving measures to perform. Not only can this result in family quarrels, but you may receive care that is more aggressive than you desire. For example,…

    Family fights over the care, legal, and financial issues of aging relatives, can have disastrous results. Using a skilled mediator can make all the difference in achieving peace, harmony, and resolutions.  Family disputes can be among the most painful of all. People who are related by blood ormarriage may have such close ties that they fully understand not only how to do the rightthing for each other, but also how to hurt each other. When caregiving is involved and financial issues come up, it can bring out either the best or the worst in families.Emotion is deep and old resentments…

    As a young girl, I had always enjoyed being around older adults. My brothers and I loved going to grandma’s house because we knew that something exciting was going to happen there. Strange, I know, but Grandma El was in a class by herself. Grandma’s house was the best! She had all kinds of pictures, whatknots, stories to tell, and her circle of friends were down-right funny. The laughter and joy of them telling old stories of “you remember when?” would fill the room. I can remember imagining myself being right there with them on their journey, as they told their stories.

    Motivational Interviewing is about helping people overcome ambivalence in making important life decisions. Advisors are in a position to guide their clients through the process.One of the most common conditions to the human experience is ambivalence, the experience of having “mixed feelings.” Ambivalence is often the root of difficulty thatpeople have in committing to a decision. Any commitment we make has consequences, both good and bad. Think of many of the thoughts you have had, and the commitments you have wanted to make in your lifetime.

  • 6 Signs You Are Not Ready to Retire

    LoveBeingRetired
    23 Sep 2014 | 6:06 am
    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…

    I have looked forward to retiring for years. The idea of having control of my time to do what I want sounds about as good at it gets. As an obsessively organized person who likes to have a bit of control over things, I am not comfortable adopting a wait and see attitude, especially when it comes to something as important as planning for my retired life. I don’t want to let retirement just happen. I want to do what I can to provide for the best second act possible. About four years ago I began seriously researching retirement.

    It is not easy to come to grips with growing older. The world around us fixates on all things youthful while advertisers bombard us with happy, wrinkle-free picture-perfect models cavorting happily with nary a care in the world. The message seems to be if you are young you have it made. But what about those whose teens and twenties are a distant memory? Is there a place for those of us whose youthful spirit finds itself betrayed by a progressively more wrinkled visage? I am doing my best to come to grips with the wear and tear of my 55 years of living. I do my part as far as getting my…

With 20 or 30 years to look forward to, you are free to fill your days with activities and experiences you genuinely want to pursue. But not everyone enjoys this newfound freedom.

Now that you manage your own time, it is up to you to keep your retirement life interesting. Here are a few ideas to help keep retirement fresh: Do something special for…

    Marketing campaigns often target the adult children of prospective senior living residents, considering them as prime decision makers in the senior housing move process. But many sellers end up falling short in when it comes to their most fundamental priority: selling. Mystery shopping has enabled potential residents to easily weed out the failing marketing campaigns, as shown through a recent mystery shopping exercise at George Mason University. Senior living sellers will be forced to step up their games if they want to convert leads into move-ins and move the occupancy needle, marketers…

Those opportunities come both with challenges—and benefits.

    We usually know which of our choices are the healthier ones but how often are those the ones we select? Be honest now! Of course we want to be healthy but often our decisions belie that objective.  Somehow wellness is less motivating than the options we’re choosing. Consumers’ failure to choose the healthy path is frustrating to those who are developing, producing and offering connected health devices and services that will contribute to better health — if we use them, of course.

    Many caregivers find themselves in the role of their lifetime. They enjoy the sense of purpose and fulfillment that caring for a senior loved one gives them. Sometimes, however, we could all use a little help from our friends (or even strangers!). You may feel that your caregiving responsibilities can be more than you can physically or emotionally handle on some days. You wonder why the relationship with the person for whom you care has changed. You are now their protector or fixer instead of partner. Caregiving can also change your family dynamics.

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.

    Are you finding it increasingly difficult to get your patient or elderly parent to consume water? If you’re concerned, you have reason to be. Dehydration is a serious problem for seniors: Dehydrated older adults are more susceptible to urinary tract infections, pneumonia, pressure ulcers, and confusion. The condition can lead to unplanned hospitalizations and even death. So, why is it so hard to get elderly patients to drink enough? Aging research shows it may be all in their head – literally.

No matter how much we focus on ways to stay young, healthy and vibrant, there is no way to actually stop the process of aging.  That is why when it comes to growing older, the best thing you can do for yourself or your family members is plan ahead.  All too often, we wait until moments of crisis before making necessary changes.  Being proactive about aging can go a long way to avoid stress, reduce costs, and improve quality of life. With those goals in mind, the be.group be.group…

  • Sex and Love as You Age

    Kenneth Smith
    3 Sep 2014 | 11:54 am
    It’s not just a “young man’s fancy” that turns to love; it’s people of all ages, including older adults, who also want to enjoy the benefits of romance. Interestingly, as the Woodstock and “free love” generation is reaching Medicare status, sociologists, marketers and even healthcare providers are noting that what many want from love as they age may have changed a bit over the years. Today, older adults – whether in long-term monogamous relationships or newly widowed or divorced –are seeking connections that will help support and nurture them throughout the aging process. …

  • Long-Distance Caregiving: When is it Too Much to Handle?

    Freedom Home Care
    29 Sep 2014 | 11:45 am
    As lifespans are increasing and the number of seniors is growing in America, we are seeing the children who are acting as caregivers being torn between two places:  where the caregiver lives and where the senior lives. While long-distance care-giving can work for a time with regular visits, it often breaks down when emergencies happen.  What if the senior injures himself?  What if he or she falls and can’t get up? The worries never stop for a long-distance caregiver.  And often the caregiver must then make a difficult choice:  Should you move closer to your elderly loved one or should…
  • Study: When is it Too Late to Begin an Exercise Routine?

    18 Sep 2014 | 8:35 am
    A recent study was conducted to answer the question, “When is it too late to benefit from an exercise program?”  And what was the answer they found?  It’s never too late. This study, lasting three years, targeted seniors aged 70-89 who were inactive and not in the best of health.  All participants were enrolled in a moderate weekly aerobics, balance, and stretching program. Their progress was closely followed. What researchers found was that the seniors who participated in the exercise program were 28% less likely to develop a persistent mobility problem compared to inactive…
  • The Power of Our Breath: Lecture by Susan Smolin, Registered Yoga Instructor, Breathing & Relaxation Coach

    Freedom Home Care
    12 Sep 2014 | 8:35 am
    Life begins with our first breath. We  breathe in oxygen 10-16 or more times in the first minute of our life. We  will take about 100 million breaths,  before we take our last. The Power of our Breath is immense. To mind the breath is to make a decision. The second we choose to mind the breath, we have decided that this moment is worthy of our full attention. The instant we do this, we have extricated ourselves from the hold of the past and the pull of the future. We are living life today, not yesterday, not tomorrow. Breath awareness simply put is when we pay attention to the way we are…
  • Technology: Improving Quality of Life for Seniors with Hearing Loss

    Freedom Home Care
    3 Sep 2014 | 1:05 pm
    If you are a senior experiencing hearing loss, you aren’t alone.  One in three seniors over the age of 60 has some form of hearing loss, and the number jumps to one in two for those over 85.  And while not being able to hear clearly can be frustrating and inconvenient, technology is improving seniors’ quality of life, especially when it comes to hearing loss. Here are two ways technology is helping today’s seniors suffering from hearing loss: 1. Cochlear Implants.  Just a few years back, if you had hearing loss due to damage of the tiny hairs in the inner ear, it was irreversible. …
  • What is the Flu? What You Need to Know before Flu Season Hits

    Freedom Home Care
    1 Sep 2014 | 9:04 am
    What is the Flu? Influenza, also called the “flu,” is a highly contagious respiratory infection. Flu can cause fever, chills, headache, dry cough, runny or stuffy nose, sore throat, and muscle aches. Unlike other common respiratory infections such as the common cold, influenza can cause extreme fatigue lasting several days to more than a week. Although nausea, vomiting and diarrhea can sometimes accompany influenza infection, especially in children, gastrointestinal symptoms are rarely prominent. The illness that people often call “stomach flu” is not influenza.

  • Losing Weight After 60 is Possible! Just Get Rid of these 8 Things

    Margaret Manning
    1 Oct 2014 | 8:00 pm
    Many women are trying to lose weight after 60. Unfortunately, with nature playing tricks on our metabolisms, it feels like we have to work twice as hard to move those pounds. Most of us have found out that diets don’t work and green tea, despite its many health benefits, won’t shrink you two dress sizes. There has to be an alternative! And, in fact, there is. Unfortunately, since businesses haven’t found a way to make money from common sense, you won’t hear about it in any TV commercials. The solution is to get back to basics. Instead of following the weight-loss trends, why not make…

    Many women have had life insurance for most of their lives. When we are younger, we see at a necessary measure to protect our families if something unexpected should happen to us. But, as we get a little older, many of us start to wonder whether we are just wasting our money. Now that our kids have grown up, do we really need to pay money every month for life insurance? Since everyone’s situation is different, it is impossible to provide a blanket answer to this question.

    The relationship between mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws is complicated. At its best, it can be like finding a long-lost daughter. At worst, it can be a center of tension for the entire family. When you think about it, having a daughter-in-law is a beautiful thing. After all, this is the person that your son has chosen from the billions of women in the world. She is also the mother of your precious grandchildren. And, while this may be hard for many mothers to accept, she is now the center of your son’s life. So, with so much riding on the mother-in-law to daughter-in-law relationship,…

Here are the top four things that most consumers or caregivers don’t know before looking for housing for older adults: 1.     You will probably be paying out of pocket for your care. Being on Medicare won’t help you pay for senior housing expenses. First of all, there is almost no government assistance for assisted living or memory care. Some states offer limited support in very specific situations, but, for the most part, you’re on your own when paying for assisted living or memory…

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…

The survey showed that 26% of those ages 50-64 have saved nothing for retirement. Some 14% of those 65 and older have nothing saved as well. This is not good news. So where do you start if you can’t afford to retire? It’s tough to answer that because it’s based on everyone’s individual circumstances. But there are a few key variables that can be managed to help you put together your plan. By taking a look at what you’ll need to spend as well as your…

But it’s more complex than the obvious. Here’s the idea: “If you have urgent current expenses to cover, the future priorities like college and retirement fall off…
