Legal Planning Tips for Assisting Aging Relatives

When your parents or other relatives start to need additional care and support as they age, you’ll all have some challenges to face. You’ll have to support them emotionally through this difficult time as well as any physical care they might need. As well as this, certain legal planning and support will probably be required. This can be extremely difficult since most people don’t have legal training or education under their belt.

To help you through this, here are some of our legal planning tips for assisting your aging relatives.

Prepare early

It is good to talk openly with your parents about the decisions they need to make and their future needs. It is better to have these conversations sooner rather than later in case their mental faculties begin to decline. Talk about how they want to live as they age – are they adamant about staying at home or can you start considering options like assisted living and retirements communities?

Involve them as much as possible in making decisions

Even in the later stages of aging when you are the one caring for your parents, it is still important to involve them in any important decisions. If your relative is facing something like dementia, then this will become much more difficult, which is why approaching it early is a good idea.

Understand their situation

It can be important that you know information related to their finances and their healthcare, or that you at least know how to access this information and any relevant documents. Important financial documents include anything relating to their pension, their bank account details, any savings bonds they have, insurance documents, and their 401(k).

Will and power of attorney

Your aging relatives should have a last will and testament and should assign a power of attorney. If they haven’t already taken care of this things in advance, you should support them in performing these tasks as soon as possible. You should hire a trusted attorney to help your parent or relative with these documents. If you are power of attorney for your aging relative, this means you will be responsible for making decisions in their last days or if they are no longer capable to make decisions for themselves.

If you need additional help with providing care for your elderly relatives or handling their legal needs, then we’re here to help anyone in and around Bermuda Run, NC. Get in touch to find out more about our retirement community and the other services we can provide.

Getting Ready for Flu Season

Flu season can range from an inconvenience to a dangerous time, with potential complications from flu symptoms hitting seniors harder than any other demographic. It is important to think ahead and get ready before flu season hits so that you are at less of a risk of contracting and spreading the flu.

Here are our top tips to help you get ready for flu season.

Get vaccinated

You should get your flu shot as soon as possible before flu season as it takes around two weeks to take hold, but the general guideline is to be vaccinated by the end of October. Various facilities can provide seniors with the flu vaccine, and many retirement communities and assisted living facilities will also provide it for their residents.

Know the signs

You’re probably familiar with the traditional flu symptoms – runny or blocked nose, sore throat and coughing, headaches and muscle aches, a fever, tiredness. For more severe symptoms, the CDC recommends seeking medical care straight away, especially for the elderly. These may include:

  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pains
  • Severe vomiting or diarrhea

Knowing when to get treated can help to prevent serious complications and their consequences.

Reduce the spread of infection

It is not always easy to stay away from the germs and bacteria that cause the flu because those that have it become contagious several days before they start to show symptoms. So, it is important to be vigilant and maintain good hygiene practices to prevent contracting and spreading it.

You should wash your hands with soap or an antibacterial gel regularly throughout the day, especially after contact with someone else, if you have been sneezing or coughing, and always before and after eating or preparing food. It is also important to keep your hands away from your nose, eyes, and mouth in case you do have bacteria on your hands.

If you start to cough or sneeze during flu season, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re infected, but it is still more important than ever to cover your nose and mouth if this happens. Observe your symptoms to see if they worsen, and try to avoid contact with others in case you are infectious.

If you need any more advice on how to stay healthy this flu season, then these tips from the CDC on flu prevention can help.

The Importance of Senior Medication Management

As we get older, we are likely to need a variety of different types of medications to manage our health and any ailments we have. For anyone, taking different pills and vitamins a certain number of times a day and at different times of the day can be confusing and difficult to manage. For seniors with memory problems, this becomes even more of a challenge.

Whether you’re trying to manage your own medications or are supporting a loved one with taking their medications, managing this properly is vital.

Why proper medication management is so important

Depending on the severity of the conditions being treated, a missed dose could be dangerous. This is why it is so important to stay on top of which pills need to be taken when and at what dosage. Because, on the other hand, taking too much can prove equally dangerous, as can mixing the wrong medications together.

Proper medication management can also involve monitoring your condition or that of your loved one, as this can alert you to any necessary changes in dosage. If their condition deteriorates, for example, then they may need to consult their doctor about increasing their dose or switching medications. Plus, being able to recognize the side effects of accidental overdose, no matter how minor, can help you to monitor whether a loved one is taking too much by mistake.

Tips for better medication management

Whether it’s for yourself or someone else, the best way to manage medication is to create a schedule or timetable to follow. You can put this up on the wall so that it’s somewhere noticeable and close to where you take or prepare the medication. A daily or weekly timetable can show what needs to be taken and when.

Pill boxes and organizers are also a handy tool, allowing you to keep the relevant pills organized in advance based on the time and day they need to be taking. This can be especially useful if you’re preparing medication for a family member who you do not live with, so you can get them organized for when you’re not there.

Make sure you or your family member understand how and when to take their medication and how to store it properly. You should also plan well in advance when it comes to refilling the prescriptions.

For seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, properly managing medication by themselves can be close to impossible, depending on their severity of degeneration. This is where round-the-clock care will often be necessary, in the form of in-home care, assisted living, or a retirement community.

If you need support with senior care, our retirement community in Bermuda Run can give your loved one the kind of care and support they need while still maintaining their independence. Get in touch if you are interested, or you can take a virtual tour of our community.

Transitioning to Assisted Living from Short-Term Rehab

When senior patients are discharged from the hospital and go straight back to their home, success rates are not great. Many patients end up being readmitted within a short space of time afterward. Maybe they weren’t ready to be discharged or maybe they just needed more post-care. Short-term rehabilitation is a good way to ease the transition from the hospital to regular living, giving the patient access to around the clock care, medication, and rehab exercises and activities.

Short-term rehab typically lasts for around 4-6 weeks, although this will vary. Afterward, you need to determine the best option for returning to everyday life. Some patients may be fit and ready to go back home, while others may need assisted living if they need a continuation of care. You will have access to a lot of the same support you received in short-term rehab, but on less of an around-the-clock basis.

This is another transition that could be challenging for seniors, so here are a few quick tips on how to ease the transition from short-term rehab to assisted living.

Make sure you’re well informed

Research the community or facility you’re moving to and ask any questions you have about it and your future life there. Knowing as much as you can about it will make you much more comfortable and can reduce the stress of moving into the unknown. Visiting your new apartment before you move can also be helpful if this is possible.

Get support

You shouldn’t be ashamed to rely on your loved ones and even your care staff for support during this transition. Regular visits from your family both in rehab and in assisted living helps greatly with your emotional well-being during this time. Getting their help with moving your belongings for you is also a big advantage for easing the process.

Make your new place feel like home

Have your important possessions moved to your assisted living apartment and decorate it in a way that feels like home. You can do this once you move in or have your family members go ahead and decorate for you while you’re still in rehab. This will give you a comfortable and almost familiar place to move into.

The transition is an important process and not one that you should rush through without thought. You should have support throughout this stage so that the change is not such a shock to the system, and it’s important that your care team are fully aware of the support you need.

Bermuda Village not only provide assisted living for seniors, but we also help you during this sometimes difficult transition.

The Art of Downsizing: How to Personalize Your New Apartment

When moving into assisted living or a retirement community, you’ll have a lot of new things to adapt to. One thing to remember is that you won’t have an entire house to look after and move into. This helps to take a lot of the burden off you in terms of household chores and other daily demands.

It also means you’ll be downsizing when it comes to moving all your belongings and decorating your new apartment. So, some furniture and other items will need to be left behind or sold when you make the move. Still, it’s important that you personalize your apartment so that it feels like home. Here are a few ways to achieve this while still decluttering and downsizing your life.

Prioritize

When it comes to deciding what to take with you and what to leave behind, you might need to make some tough decisions. It’s the perfect time to declutter and get rid of some of the items you never use or that hold no sentimental meaning to you. At the same time, it’s important to keep those things that are meaningful to you – the things that will make your new apartment feel like home. You probably won’t have space for all your furniture, for example, but maybe you’ve got a favorite chair that you always sit in at home that you don’t want to leave behind. Small touches like this are a great way to personalize your new place.

Decorate

You should try to make your new space your own, and decorating to your own tastes is a big part of this. An apartment that reflects your personality and interests will be much homelier. This may involve painting the walls a new color, adding accessories like cushions and throw rugs, and decorating the walls with photos of your family or your favorite artwork.

Create separate spaces

Even in a small apartment, you can still define separate spaces for different functions. If you sleep, relax, pursue hobbies, and socialize in the same space, it can be difficult to separate these parts of your life. So, you should try to create specific places for these different activities. Have an area where you entertain guests, and organized workspace where you can write or draw, for example, and a living space for reading or watching television, so that you don’t end up sitting in bed doing everything.

Adjusting to living in a retirement community can be a challenge at first, but any place you live can feel like home if you personalize it to suit your own tastes, even if it’s a smaller space than what you’re used to.

How to Prep Your Parents for the Move

 

If it comes to a time when your parent or parents need to move into a retirement community or an assisted living community, it’s important that they get all the support they can. You should understand what is involved in their big move so that you can help them through it, answer all their questions, and prepare them as much as possible. Read on for our tips on navigating this move.

Talk to them

Moving out of a home that they may have lived in for decades and perhaps raised children and grandchildren in is bound to be an emotional time. It’s important that you talk with your parents openly during this time to help them through it.

If you educate yourself as much as possible on the moving process and the place they are moving to, then you will be better able to answer any questions they may have, which can assuage their concerns.

Tour the facility

If your parents are resistant to moving, it’s likely that the image they have in their head of a retirement community is worse than the reality. Seeing the home and community they’ll be moving to can help to the transition and bring them more peace of mind. They can see where they’ll be living and the level of privacy they’ll have, as well as all the perks of living in a community.

They may also be able to talk to staff and current residents to get to know them and have any more questions they have answered.

Packing

There will likely be a lot of packing to do, so you and other family members should help as much as possible through this process. Alternatively, you could hire a local packing service to take off some of the burden. Either way, it’s a good idea to be there with your parents during packing, as it can be an emotional time, seeing all of your belongings and memories moved out of your home.

Getting affairs in order

You can also shoulder the burden for your parents when it comes to sorting out their affairs. Are they selling the house or will it be kept in the family or rented out to tenants? Simple things can often be overlooked like informing local health providers that they will be moving out of the area. Then there’s also the finances involved in moving to their new community.

We wish you the best of luck through this difficult transition. Bermuda Village is a welcoming retirement community in Bermuda Run, NC. If you’re yet to choose your parents’ new home, find out if our community is the right fit for them.
