Agencies on Aging

Agencies on Aging

The Minnesota Board on Aging ensures that older Minnesotans and their families are effectively served by state and local policies and programs -- in order to age well and live well. The Minnesota Board promotes policies to the Minnesota State Legislature, the Minnesota Governor and Minnesota State Agencies that fairly reflect the needs and interests of older Minnesotans. The Minnesota Board on Aging also provides objective information and promotes Minnesota public education on ways to meet the changing needs of Minnesota's older population to age well and live well. The Minnesota Board partners with Area Agencies on Aging and others, to administer and oversee the effective use of Older Americans Act and state funds to support older Minnesotans.

Adult Day Care

Adult Day Care

Adult Day Care Adult Day Care programs provide an assortment of health, therapeutic, and social services to those at risk of being placed in a nursing environment. Adult Day Care services support elderly individuals who lack full independence but who do not need 24-hour nursing care. Services may include therapeutic and social activities designed to meet and enhance the participant's level of functioning through individual plans of care. Such Adult Day Care services generally provide support, respite and education for caregivers.

A typical Adult Day Care center operates 10 - 12 hours per day and provides meals, social/recreational outings, and general supervision. Some Adult Day Care centers maintain a nurse on-site and may also provide transportation and personal care.

With the added support through participation in Adult Day Care, admission to rest homes or nursing homes may be delayed. Hence, participants may be able to remain at home with family members for a longer period of time. In addition the social stimulation and recreational activities often mitigate the decline of cognitive/physical functions.

Adult Day Care support also aids caregivers by providing respite services thus enabling caregivers to work or to have a break from their caregiving responsibilities.

Costs for services are usually less than a home health visit and significantly less than a skilled nursing facility. Daily fees for adult day services vary depending upon the services provided.

Assisted Living Communities

As part of a retirement plan these options combine housing, support services and health care, as needed. Assisted living is a retirement service for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management or assistance, bathing, dressing and transportation. Some residents may have memory disorders including Alzheimer's, or they may need help with mobility, incontinence or other challenges of senior life. Residents are assessed to determine the level of service they may need. These retirement services generally include: 24/7 supervision, 3 meals a day, housekeeping, transportation, minor medical attention, personal care assistance, security and emergency call, exercise programs, social and educational activities. In addition some Assisted living communities may provide: gardens, libraries, and chapels.

Assisted living communities are operated by both profit and non-profit organizations. Pricing can range from $1000 to over $4,000 per month based on your location. There may be extra fees for special services.

Moving Help and Supplies

Make sure you have the information you need to protect your memories, money, and belongings from moving problems.

The best defense against moving difficulties is to be informed and aware of your options when choosing a reputable mover. While most household moves go smoothly, there are many pitfalls that you should be aware of. It can also be stressful, even under the best of circumstances. Use the checklist here to help guide you through the moving venture.

A key step is to read and understand all information provided by the mover. These should include the following basic documents as part of your move:

Estimates
The estimate should clearly describe, in writing, all charges for services the mover will perform. Make sure the estimate is signed by the mover.
Do not accept oral estimates.

Order for Service
The order for service is a list of all the services the mover will perform and shows the dates your household goods will be picked up and delivered
.

Bill of Lading
The bill of lading is a contract between you and the mover and a receipt of your belongings. You should be given a partially completed copy of the bill of lading before the mover leaves the residence at origin.


The inventory is the receipt showing each item you shipped and its condition. Be sure you receive a written copy of the inventory after your household goods are loaded, and that you agree with its description of your household goods' condition

Aging in Place

Aging In Place

Aging in Place "Aging in place" is growing older without having to move. Aging in place with supportive services is one of the most desirable ways of aging. Aging in place can achieve efficiencies enabled by the customized care. Successful aging in place approaches focus on the provision of the most appropriate care for the specific individual. Thus avoiding wasted costs brought on by a "generic" care model.

An aging in place scenario, creates housing and health care options to provide support as defined by an individualís wishes and efforts to live independently. Aging in place can work best when it is employed as a part of a comprehensive plan for retirement and aging. A key step in implementing aging in place is to make your home aging friendly. As we age we don't hear so well, we sometimes forget or get confused and we can even outlive doctor's predictions about our longevity. So as long as we persist in growing older, why not arrange our homes to accommodate our reality. Incorporate memory triggers into the way we arrange cabinets and counters, add soft fabrics to muffle background noises, change appliances to better accommodate our short-comings.

Here is a book to help you make your homes senior-friendly.

Universal Design: A Step-by-Step Guide to Modifying Your Home for Comfortable, Accessible Living
The book, Universal Design: A Step-by-Step Guide to Modifying Your Home for Comfortable, Accessible Living by Barbara Krueger and Nika Stewart is a good place to start.With the book as a guide you can plan ahead for years before you critically need the advantages offered by the ideas in the book.
