Older American Act

by Deah on Tuesday, May 21, 2019 10:08 AM

Since this is Older Americans Month, I looked into the Older American Act (OAA) and found the many functions of the OAA very interesting. I thought I would share a few key points with you. What I found disturbing was the OAA has unfortunately lost ground reaching those in need of services.

No one wants to hand over their freedom to drive! It was the number one thing most of us looked forward to as children and the one thing that allows us the ability to remain independent as adults.

Almost everyone I know celebrates the fourth of July in some fashion. It may be going to a parade, a picnic, or watching a fireworks display. This day is a great excuse to have some fun with family and friends.

What Does Independence Mean to You?

by lori paterno on Sunday, July 5, 2015 11:05 AM

For many seniors, the notion of losing independence is frightening or depressing. Most of us want to stay independent as long as possible – but what does independence mean?  Does it mean that you never need help or that you do not need others in your life?

Does Aging in Place mean Becoming Homebound?

by lori paterno on Monday, June 22, 2015 11:25 AM

Up to 90% of seniors want to age in place - meaning they do not want to enter into assisted living or nursing home facilities.  Rather, most adults want to stay in their homes and communities where they have lived their lives.  This appears to be working for many seniors, but some may have more difficulty navigating this aging strategy - leaving them homebound with few social or stimulating outings. 

What You Need to Know About Elderly Falls

by Deah on Monday, September 29, 2014 7:11 PM

With modern advances in medicine and the baby boomers (adults born between 1946 and 1964) aging, there are more elderly people worldwide than ever before.  With this current aging demographic, more and more people are living longer and often want to live independently. Living independently may not be possible if an elderly person is at risk of falling and/ or injury.

Time for an Eye Check-Up

by lori paterno on Thursday, July 10, 2014 3:14 PM

This is the month of our nation's "independence," and I can think of no better way to celebrate than to preserve our personal independence by protecting our eyesight.

Opthamologists often see patients who come to them with preventable advanced eye diseases.  Summer is a nice time to make an appointment with an eye doctor to make a double appointment - one for you and one for the person you care for.  Medicare and most insurance plans typically pay for an exam. If uninsured or in need of assistance, there is a little-known national program called "EyeCare America" that will match up eligible seniors in need with volunteer opthamologists as well.

Mothering Your Mom

by lori paterno on Saturday, May 10, 2014 11:23 AM

Mother's Day is tomorrow and for many caregivers, you may be taking care of your mother.  There is something hard about the role reversals that can occur in a caregiving situation.

Elderly People Fear Losing Independence

by Deah on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 11:23 AM

From the beginning of our lives, we strive to be independent and make our own decisions. When an older adult begins to fear losing this well-earned independence, it can be detrimental - leading to depression, and in turn, other illnesses. Many fear that they cannot call upon their children who are probably dealing with their own busy lives and schedules.
