12:34:43     From  David Matcha   to   All panelists : A life insurance can have a Long Term Care rider which pays out if someone cannot perform 2 ADLs...the payout is 4% per month.  A 100k policy would pay out $4,000 per month.  Some carriers do not work on a reimbursement basis...and will not require receipts.

  GOOD COMMENT ERIC!

12:40:41     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Sourcebook : Elder Law Academy https://naela.org//

12:46:25     From  Bob Coulson : Isn't reinforcing "independent" a set up for a false reality? Encouraging self-sufficiency and collaborative care as a team would be more realistic.  Reinforcing independence results in resistance and ambivalence to change.

12:48:23     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Sourcebook : ElderLink: A Beacon of Light for Older Adults and Their Caregivers https://www.inova.org/about-inova/inova-your-community/community-access-care/elderlink

12:49:15     From  Steve Gurney - ProAging Sourcebook : Area Agency on Aging (AAA)  https://eldercare.acl.gov/Public/About/Aging_Network/AAA.aspx

12:50:17     From  Peggy Floria : Concur with Bob.  When seniors dig in their heels and refuse in home care and refuse to go to assisted living, insisting they are still "independent," and only want assistance when it goes "full catastrophic," at what point do you make the decision to "let them fall?"

12:51:02     From  Peggy Floria : I ask this question not because there is a wish to let them fall, but from the perspective of respecting a senior's wishes, even if it is not in their best interest.

12:52:08     From  Peggy Floria : From my perspective, the answer in this situation is to set the conditions to do the best by them as possible.

12:53:42     From  Bob Coulson : Clients typically come in crisis, how do you manage the emotions of pre-crisis, crisis, and post-crisis of all those involved with an older person?  Are you do family conferencing?

12:54:17     From  Peggy Floria : I am talking about a full refusal by the seniors to participate in such conversations.

12:56:31     From  Gelareh Bassiry   to   All panelists : Thank you, Steve, for this great service!

12:59:56     From  Peggy Floria : My thanks to everyone for the wonderful discussion.  Please feel free to consider me a resource for your Retirement Transition needs.  Peggy@intentionalcoachingandconsulting.com

13:00:36     From  Bob Coulson : Most clients dread and don't want facility care before covid and after especially after covid.  People say independent as possible but they really hear I'm independent and don't need help until I really do.  Very self-centric thinking with no or little awareness of their impact of loved ones who care for them or are concerned for them.  Self-sufficient is a more exacting term and planning collaboratively how to fulfill IADLs and IDLs may be more helpful to all.  My parents are in mid 80's and will not give up their "independence" but live dangerously for self and others they drive around.  You have a tough job, thanks.

13:03:02     From  Bob Coulson : Panelists, thanks for your content and passion for helping others.  Keep up the great work!

13:03:32     From  Jim Bland : Great discussion!!!! Thank you!

13:04:22     From  Clareen Heikal : This has been helpful and I definitely like the trans-disciplinary discussion.  Thank You much!

13:05:20     From  Deb Merriner : Thank you all for a great presentation.  Deb Merriner, Buckley's for Seniors, Premium Concierge, Companion and Transportation, 703-390-0535

13:05:20     From  Bob Coulson : Always ask and what if that does not work out, what would you do?
