Dot com be sure to. Connector was and connect with the socially on and on FaceBook and Twitter and those of the two primary platforms and he is we do a lot of communications to their. All right so I know do I do this first segments in honor of a presentation that I made. This past week two it really just a great group of people. They're called the cool group coalition of older lutherans. Up about dad sell shot out to my friends over into holy cross Lutheran. I church in the cool group for having me out. And had a lot of questions about this and so I think you know that this is really get information haven't talked about a for a little while and so we Adler questions on you know what but what and the do you consider moving from your home to one of these senior care communities. Whether it's independent living assisted living. That you do have the long term care than nursing home part. If your kid involved that memory care and maybe all of the above and a continuing care retirement community so. When she did do you consider moving wind is the right time. By far away this is the number one question that I've been asked before I know the last almost fifteen years when operating senior care consulting so. They're really that sometimes it's like just incredibly obvious just kind of black and white. Button usually is pretty great actually you can be extremely great so I always say that there are some things that should triggered the conversation of considering moving. From home to a senior care community in the first one. It number one when it is no longer safe to live at home. And usually that's living at home alone but it could be a couple. Living at home the most common one I hear there's far safety concerns would be leaving the stove top burners on. I hear that all the time. And I recently heard of of some back a couple of daughters they checked in on their mom and she poured canned chili right under the hot stove top. That right under that the burner and boy they're goes smoke and end she forgot the pan she has alzheimer's. And I kind of forgot a step there and so that this just a real safety hazard it's also really easy to fix that when you can. Unplugged the stove if it's electric flip the breaker or turn off the gas. My dad is a major major safety issue that. I'm most people have to address at some point. Wandering away and not able to find your way back I mean dad is a and that's where you get these silver alerts and you're hearing more and more silver alerts. In so a lot of times if I I had I had someone say how worried about Dan walking away so we just lock him in his house. And I almost fell out of my chair Mike you cannot do that where there's a fire. You you cannot do that in May they didn't really think it's really just what they weren't trying to be mean they just want him to be safe and so they went. To his home immediately. And unlocked then the home and then they brought in home care service to lead to watch after dad. When they were away from the home but. That wondering no way in can't find your way back home that is a major major safety risk this is a little less obvious. But not taking your medications on time. Maybe not taking them at all or maybe taking two doses in one sitting. That that's a major safety issue even though it's not his. A parent is leading a stove top burner honor lighting a candle and and having that fire hazard they're so that's a major and I just bit injuries at home frequent false and hospitalizations. All of these things would fall under the category. Of not safe. To live at home another one is financial abuse I've heard so many stories that it just. It it just makes me in just not just. Where you hear about people who have been taken advantage of by unscrupulous you know a salesperson knocking on your door or someone calling you do get you do donate to something that may not even exist and just taken advantage of somewhat of an elderly person financially. That is it because they're there and your not monitoring down man may have. Free access to their bank accounts and credit cards and and and in the telephone etc. it's on Iraq and their their. You're getting a kind of swindled out of money so that that's another. The example of when it's no longer safe to live at home loan. OK number two. This one should definitely trigger the conversation this was huge but it happens tends to happen slowly so its harder to see. I've been I would call this an extremely close second place. When their caregivers. Health and wellbeing begins to decline. Now you've got big problems you have two people. Declining and you just cannot have that. In sell you had the caregiver in the usually put their needs second. Behind this is a person's needs you know and and they they love their spouse they love their. Their parents or grandparents so much and duck and they're just really working hard they're doing a great job that there. They are declining. Themselves they're not getting to their own doctors they're not taken their own medications on time. The night going to the dentist they're not getting a break for some mental health relief to stick or even a few hours rested break can just beat. Just miraculous and how we can recharge your battery so. When their caregivers. Health. And wellbeing begins to decline now you have two people declining. And now you're in trouble you can't have that stress is a very very powerful force and I won't go into the gory details because they're pretty gory but they're they're they're just they're just terrible but I have seen examples of of of a spouse who has actually. Pre deceased the spouse of their providing care for because they let themselves go and stress literally killed them. And now they're kind of defeating the purpose because they're not here to care for this person. That they loved so much so you cannot have that in you have to pay attention to if you see. Someone in your family or someone in your circle cement from your church in and you seem to care giver is declining. It's time to throw the red flag and someone needs to start talking about getting them some help immediately. Number three it could be a financially driven decision when the costs of in home care becomes too expensive now I am a huge huge huge. A fan of of home care. And and it is an amazing service but if that escalates to the level of needing 24 hour and they care. You're talking twelve to 151000 a month in that neighborhood and that's pretty expensive that just may not be expensive for every one or may not. Or may no excuse me may now be affordable for everyone may be too expensive. Two take him on a monthly basis so it's time to consider moving. Two maybe a idea less expensive care community to get 24 hour care. And then last but not least if you just cannot. Keep up with the care demands and you cannot provide enough care for your loved one always ask the question why not consider changing your role. And and what do you mean by ST we'll changing year old from the care. Giver her the care provider of the hands on care provider to the care manager. Or the care advocate meaning. Let's together let's go out and find a great place that can provide the care for you I do the heavy lifting figuratively and literally. Deal with the a difficult shower maybe in times the mealtime mess all the things a stress you out. That's what they're gonna do for yeah and then you can return to the role. You're more traditional role of the son daughter grandchild. Spouse. In the and you can be the care manager make sure. That they're doing a good job in providing our appropriate care and speak for your loved ones behalf so hopefully that'll help if you have questions about that you can always call.

If you pay your relative to provide care for you in your home. And you think you'll need to to qualify for Medicaid in the next five years. When people do. The money that you paid your relative for care. It's considered a gift by Medicaid Medicaid would consider them money gift. Is this statement true. Or false in the answer is so. True every single penny. Is considered big gift in so like you really need to understand us. Easy just your attention please this is consumer alert and consumer alerts. All right so I'm just gonna you make this point my kind of putting it into a story this is a real common situation actually. Let's say that you want to remain independent in your home. And you make home modifications to safely Jim place you've done everything right it in near you wanna stay home right in cell. But at some point you begin to decline a little mate you need some assistance. With your activities of daily living so you need your medication on time and you need little help with that he needs help with getting dressed. I'm maybe taking a bath or shower I you have some incontinence issues seen below them help there with incontinence care. A little help with house keep being with food preparation. And assistance with transportation. I transportation to and from doctors appointments may be run to the grocery store the pharmacy. And let's say in and I've heard this story multiple times so that's why I like using this example. Let's say that your daughter is a nurse. And that she wants to quit her job and come over here home and take care review which is really really awesome so. You realize that she needs some sort of an income notes of pay her bills. So you offer to pay her twenty dollars per hour so that that seems like a good deal. So she's providing loving care for you and you have a caregiver. That loves you absolutely unconditionally. I mean this is a perfect plan right. Well not so fast not so fast in May not be the perfect plan. In the next 24 months. Your health declines to the point that your daughter can no longer take care of now at this point you have to go to a nursing home to get the proper care they unique. The nursing home cost about 6000 dollars per month which is set pretty average around here and in our area. And you run out of money in the next twelve months. So at that time you need to qualify for Medicaid this is a very. Common scenario. So you complete the application submitted for approval in the Medicaid office contact Sheehan says. And ask you about these what are these weekly payments say you've been making. To your daughter over the last couple years will you explain that she quit her job. Making forty dollars an hour to come pay. To come care for you when you pay your twenty dollars an hour. And ask you well do you have a care contract. And you're like what. Me and you have a care contract. And you ask well what is that. And they'll explain viewer care contract is basically an employment agreement. Stating what your daughter did these services and support that your daughter will provide in the in the pay that you won't. Prep how much you'll pay for her on an hourly basis. It and so it's just real straightforward if you don't have a care contract in place. Every single dollar that you paid to her. For legitimate care unfortunately will be considered a gift and this will result in Medicaid. Penalty and I just I hate this I do not like this. This this part of the rule in all but unfortunately it's just it's been abused in the past and so they have to. I really tightened down in this is a result of that so it just shows like your situation in you do not have a care contract I would say it run. Don't watch that run into an elder law attorney. Immediately and if you're getting ready to provide care you get are getting ready to enter into a situation like this. I strongly recommend you need to have a care contract just in case. You may need Medicaid in the next five years there's a five year look back. In an elder law attorney can provide you with a customized care contract. It has to be written to meet the language and requirements. For the state of Kansas or Missouri it's just not some generic. Contract it's a very state specific contract so. The penalty devise or in Kansas is about 6000 I'm rounding Matt. In Missouri it's about 5000 and I'm rounding that so let's say if you pay your daughter 60000. Dollars. Over a period of time to provide legitimate. Loving care that kept you in your home independently didn't need to go to a nursing facility at all. Okay you have to divide that in Kansas for your Medicaid penalty divide that 60000. By 60 in Kansas that results and a ten month penalty. In Missouri get results and a twelve month penalty and that means that Medicaid. Will not pay for your nursing home. For the next ten or twelve months depending on what state you live it. So after the penalties paid back or cured it then Medicaid will begin paying for you nursing home at that point but they're not gonna pay for for that huge gap so. Look here's the bottom line. Do not pay your family member to provide your care with out take care contract. Written by an elder law attorney that meets state specific requirements. Of Kansas or Missouri. The scene with caution says consumer alerts and my senior airline. And I'm constantly harping. You must see a qualified experienced. You know look many years so longevity experienced elder law attorney furlough so many of these things because it's so specific. Who in their right mind would ever think about dead who would know about that in downtown yet 99.9. Percent about a of the general public out there do not know about that so deathly contact an elder law attorney. All right so we're gonna shift gears here big time I mention remodeling her home page in place so many people are doing and I know I'm definitely gonna do it.

That there are more selections that you have to make in the kitchen. And you have to make when re modeling a bathroom since the myth of win remodeling a kitchen you have a lot more selections to make them remodeling the bathroom. Make key chance not necessarily true. No not at all basically they ask Syria you have all the same selections. Unitary or cabinet go to Gary you know countertop yuppie got a plumbing fixture. Floors is such a bit you've got more plumbing fixtures which you have your opinion Hewitt do what can show our if it is a they don't do what tiled. On the walls you want onyx. Do fiberglass and then. He'll walk in Charlotte Sybase going to be made out of so we can see where there's a lot more selection just you know door styles polls. On the toilet. Yeah when you walk into Betemit just kind of taken for granted them if you had to go back and kind of redo all that that's that is a tremendous amount of choices out there really isn't the use shocks people know me. Decisions have to make for a little bathroom that and then depending on line and in the costs may or may not be mourned in the kitchen I mean I think a lot of it depends on you know I am. Volume you've employee his depends on the size and your expectations is runners what you want them. Your lifestyle will come into that. If you have a gold plated you know no water faucet that's going to be pretty expensive vs. Hey I brushed nickel or you know or whatever we have even a chrome faucets are exactly.

Or visit senior care consulting dot com. So off off Mike can I win we are kind of on the break in between segments. We will all going to the whole story by is this this is why. Mr. Rick this is one of the reasons why mr. auriemma always been business. Since 1969. Just doing the right thing so kind of a long story short mark we share with me in this has been a while back when. We deem lay was was still with us well and then 1012 years ago at least imagine 1012 years ago and he had a pregnant mother was some children. And and and name she went hand in just started destroying the bathroom started doing the terra herself. Well there was a husband that was involved Tucson earlier he was in trouble basically good yeah yeah I got in over his head and it was the only bathroom in the house and and they called us and move you know they had a budget of 2000 dollars and so we did what we could and that's how much you know he knows tore out the whole bathroom. A guy can see amend their seal swing and a sledgehammer knocking stuff out and wires sparking new though it wasn't even sub floor on the floor all your kid go so all he aren't always get our goal was released in a toilet functional then we had to run water lines and so we did what we could do. We had done and I went back to the office and I was telling dean this story he said you know. Send somebody over there and in get that bathroom at least functional for us riskiest of those kids can use the restroom. And in and take a bath in himself and if financially you know that we use obviously losing proposition but he said. Take care and FEM meticulously last salute. And and that's a really cool story you can't then not every job can DB knowing what you're an every day unless you're not here not in business might but the bottom line is you know once in awhile special circumstances happened. In India step up and and I know you still do that. Today and it's and so I just I was really touched by this story they year they hadn't had that that your dad said. Get over there and take care about human make it functional and a record for gold plated faucets I terror and make it functional for those kids so that they can have the bathroom because what were they doing. In them in the end they were going to 7-Eleven. You know to use the bathroom and taken that the kids over to Graham Austin get him Baz of that type of thing that was winners well oh boy so.
