The State of Pre-Claim Review: A Report From Illinois

Creating a Daily Plan | Caregiver Center | Alzheimer's Association

Dementia properly treated in the home requires care in the morning and at night. Creating routines and having a structured care plan is important in helping your loved one through the day especially if they will be without a care provider.
In the morning walkthrough the activities and tasks your loved one has to complete that day. Get them excited and help them remember times or orders by giving them a relatable benchmark. At night recap their day and plan for tomorrow.
If the love one will be alone for parts of their day or night embrace technology. A GPS braclet can save a life and a tablet or laptop with video calling dramatically improves life.

Depression is widespread among elderly persons, affecting one in six patients treated in general medical practice and an even higher percentage of those in hospitals and nursing homes. Older people have the highest su***de rate of any group, and many medical problems common to older people may be related to, or intensified by, a depressive disorder. Comparisons of people with suicidal idealization and people who attempt su***de has shown that, although older persons living in nursing homes are far less likely to attempt active su***de they have high levels of suicidal idealization.

More importantly, researchers are learning that more elderly persons may die from indirect su***de than from direct suicidal behavior. Indirect self‐destructive behaviors are such things as refusing to eat or refusing life‐sustaining medications.

The link below is a short questionnaire you can give to a loved one suspected of having depression. It is easy to administer, consisting of 15 yes or no questions and can be completed in less than 7 minutes. If you know of a senior in risk please contact Quad City Home Care at 563.275.5710 to learn how we can help.

QCHC - Kemper Home Care Insurance

Quad City Home Care has teamed up with Powell Financial Group to offer our community a way to pay pennies on the dollar for home care. Call Quad City Home Care at 563.275.5710 to learn more.

Kemper Home Care Insurance has a maximum benefit of $54,000 for 360 days of care. The days are not consecutive, so if you are getting care 3 times a week the policy can last over 2 years. Additionally, an individual can purchase two policies for a maximum benefit of $108,000 over 720 days of care.

Among other benefits the policy pays $250 off the retail price of your prescriptions each year. When you find your rate by clicking the link below deduct $250 from the annual cost and that will be what you are effectively paying for $54,000 in home care coverage each year. For example if your premium a year is $288.65 and subtracting the $250 prescription benefit you are only paying $38.65 a YEAR for home care.

There is a 6 month exclusion on preexisting conditions, but it is very simple underwriting. As long as you can perform the activities of daily living a policy can be issued. The policy has 1st day coverage, so if you bind today, slip on the ice tomorrow, you will have coverage. What is also nice about the policy is that if you recover from falling on the ice and stop home care, after 180 days the benefits restore. So, if you used $5,000 of your $54,000 max benefit recovering from the slip on the ice that $5,000 will be credited back to your policy after 180 days off claim.

If you see a loved one declining we strongly recommend purchasing this policy. A few years of premium would save big money. Call Quad City Home Care at 563.275.5710 to learn more.

To help you can install, teach the senior how to use the app, and periodically check to make sure the apps are up to date and functioning. If you know a senior that could benefit from smart phone, tablet, or gaming system please let us know so we can put them on our recipient list for the donations we are accepting all year.

Fight Isolation With Kindness and Tech - AARP

The best cure for a senior's isolation is a quality caregiver. The second best cure is a tablet. At Quad City Home Care we recommend that our clients invest in a tablet. A $50 tablet from Amazon goes a long way keeping up the health of your loved one. Many of our clients have hearing difficulties and communicating with them through text or video messaging gives them additional cues to help them understand the conversation.

Instead of a client passively watching television our caregivers are encouraged to bring their gaming systems to their client's home. We have found that gaming with seniors is an especially good way to pull some out of a "funk."

The good feelings that learning, being engaged, and working with another person toward a common goal elicits does not end when you pass a certain age. Technology is only useless when it is not understood. We hope you will join us at Quad City Home Care in our new year's resolution to bring technology to seniors.

As a person gets older, his or her skin tends to get more sensitive and thus needs extra care and protection. A senior will find that skin care products and methods that were used previously will not necessarily be adequate for the present, as the skin changes as it ages. Following are some simple yet very effective skin care tips for seniors.

1. Eat the Right Foods
Everybody, including seniors, should eat foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. These foods not only help the skin look good but also feel good. Particularly helpful foods for the skin include:

green vegetables
melons
berries
walnuts
salmon
avocados

2. Drink Plenty of Water
Although there are lots of conflicting studies about how much water a person should actually drink a day, it is certainly beneficial for a senior to remain hydrated and drink lots of water. Water refreshes the body and flushes out toxins that can cause skin problems.

3. Use a Humidifier
Skin tends to become dry as a person gets older. Winter can be especially difficult for a senior with dry skin, as the cold, dry air can cause redness, cracking and/or chapping. Using a humidifier will eliminate these problems, as it provides needed moisture in the air.

4. Avoid Smoking
Smoking gives the skin a leathery, dry feel; it is also extremely unhealthy for any person of any age. Giving up smoking will help a senior citizen look and feel much better.

5. Sun Protection
The sun will dry out the skin and ruin it almost faster than anything else. Those who value soft, healthy skin should steer clear of tanning salons, wear protective clothing when working in the sun for extended periods of time and invest in a good sunscreen.

6. Keep the Nails Trimmed
Many people inadvertently scratch themselves with long nails. However, as the skin gets older, it takes longer to heal and so a senior will want to be sure to keep nails trimmed to avoid causing self inflicted scratches.

7. Wear Glasses
Those who squint a lot due to sunlight or nearsightedness often develop wrinkles around the eyes. To avoid this, a person should wear sunglasses when out in the sun and get yearly eye checkups to determine whether or not glasses or contact lenses are in order.

8. Sleep on the Back
There are many ways in which a person can sleep, but medical researchers have found that those who sleep with their face on the pillow often develop more wrinkles than those who do not put regular pressure on their face in this way. To avoid pressing on the face and creating wrinkle lines, a person should try to get in the habit of sleeping on his or her back.

9. Avoid Harsh Soaps and Excessive Washing
Most seniors do not lead an overly active life and so do not need to vigorously scrub the skin on a daily basis. Washing the face with water is often sufficient. Purchasing a soft, fragrance-free bath soap is also a good idea.

10. Use a Good Skin Cream
Choosing a good moisturizing skin cream is a must. Such a cream should contain natural ingredients such as:

vitamin A
vitamin E
aloe
cucumber extract
natural antioxidants.
This cream should be applied to the face, neck and arms several times a day.

Keeping the skin youthful and healthy does not require expensive treatments such as botox and microdermabrasion. While these treatments can reverse the damage caused by aging, they are expensive and not as safe as they may initially appear. A person who wants to stay looking and feeling young simply needs to follow the healthy living and skin care tips outlined above. These tips will not turn back the clock but will provide a person with softer, smoother skin and reduce wrinkles and skin damage.

If you are going "home for the holidays" remember to visit your loved ones in a hospital or nursing home that can't. Take pictures of the family gathering so they can feel like are included, play some Christmas music and reminisce about years past. Give them the hope of a new year and make sure they know they are loved.
