Transcription

1 Letter From The President - Mark Burish How Should Seniors Choose Seniors or their families and caregivers are often confused about what alternatives are available to them for assisted living. That is hardly surprising when one considers the myriad of assisted living residences available from community to community. Most people looking for services are doing it for the first time and do not know where to start. At Our House, we recognize our responsibility to go beyond making a sale when we receive an inquiry. We attempt to educate and assist families in determining if the assisted living option is the correct one and if so, what type of assisted living is most appropriate. available. It may be that Our House is either to restrictive or cannot provide all the care needed by a potential resident. If so, we will inform the family or the resident and help them find an appropriate place to reside. It is important to us that we establish a good rapport with respective residents and their families, first by listening to their particular concerns and requirements and then insuring that they receive the information they need to make an informed decision about Our House or another facility. Our House will always attempt to do whatever is possible to help seniors make the best choice of the appropriate assisted living option. The guiding principles that we follow in advising potential residents are choice, dignity and independence. These are most valued by all seniors looking for care. Our job is to find that facility that will provide the best care; it still respects choice, dignity, and independence of the individual to the greatest extent possible. We do an extensive individual assessment of each potential resident. We determine what care is appropriate and what risks are associated with the care choices I am proud to announce to our readers that Our House Residential Care Apartments in Austin, MN, received the best new building project of the year award from the Austin Chamber of Commerce. The forty-one assisted care apartments were opened in October 2005, and are already filled. They compliment our two memory care residences in Austin. Kudos to Pam Waters, Randy Klein, Shannon Pacholl, and Jennifer Bartholmey who do such a great job managing them and caring for the residents there.

2 For Seniors Innovative Financial Strategies There are many innovative financial strategies available to free up assets of older adults. These assets can be utilized to provide the independence of choice and the ability to enhance quality of life in their later years. Reverse Mortgages An alternative that has existed for a number of years is a reverse mortgage. A reverse mortgage is a special type of home loan that lets a home owner convert equity into cash. The equity can be paid in a lump sum or monthly payments. Repayment is not required until the homeowner no longer uses the home as their primary residence. Under the terms of a reverse mortgage you will be able to live in your home as long as you wish, providing you keep current on the taxes and insurance. To qualify the homeowner must be at least 62 years of age and have a significant amount of equity in their home. Long-Term Care Insurance A third strategy is long-term care insurance. Policies are available that pay a daily rate for nursing home, assisted living or home care which preserves the freedom of choice for the policy holder while providing financial protection from the high cost of long-term care. For an individual or couple with a significant net worth, long-term care insurance is a viable financial strategy to preserve and protect your assets. Another financial strategy to consider is Senior Life Insurance Settlements, which enables an individual to sell their life insurance to a third party in exchange for a reduced amount of the face value. The amount you receive depends on your age, health, death benefit, and the number of years your policy has been in force. Any person age 64 and older is eligible.
