As 2017 comes to a close, it is a great time to reflect on the year that has passed and plan for the year ahead. The great memories of 2017 are filled with people who give so much to Eastern Area Agency on Aging (EAAA) every day. I would like to take a moment to thank each and every one of them. Thank you to the foundations, municipalities, businesses, charitable groups and donors that continue to support the agency year after year; we could not do what we do without you. Thank you to all our community partners who collaborate with us, we know how vital these partnerships are to serving the vast numbers of people who need help every day. To the EAAA Board of Directors, I thank you for your time, your guidance, your patience and your unwavering support. Thank you to the staff and volunteers of Eastern Area Agency on Aging. Each day I am honored to work beside you. Thank you to the EAAA Leadership team. This year has been a time of personal growth for all us.

2 ALZHEIMER S ASSOCIATION OFFERED VOLUNTEER COMMUNITY EDUCATOR TRAINING IN BANGOR BANGOR, Maine The Alzheimer s Association, Maine Chapter partnered with EAAA to present a Volunteer Community Education Training on Friday, November 17, The program consisted of a six-hour curriculum presented by Peter Baker, Program Director, Alzheimer s Association, Maine Chapter. Its purpose was to prepare participants with the skills and resources to host three common-core Alzheimer s Association evidence-informed dementia education programs in their local communities. Effective Communication Strategies explores how communication takes place when someone has Alzheimer s or a related dementia. It offers ways for families to remain connected as the disease progresses and communication needs change. Know the 10 Signs: Early Detection Matters is an interactive workshop that separates myth from reality and addresses commonly-held fears about Alzheimer s. Using examples from people who have the disease, it illustrates ways to recognize the signs. The Basics: Understanding Memory Loss, Dementia, and Alzheimer s Disease is designed to provide attendees with the basic information about memory loss issues and what they mean. The curriculum includes: symptoms, risk factors, detection, diagnosis, disease stages, treatments, research and resources. For more information on when the Educational Programs will be offered in EAAA s service area contact or For more information on the Volunteer Community Education Trainings or when Educational Programs outside of EAAA s service area will be offered, contact Peter Baker: or About the Alzheimer s Association The Alzheimer s Association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer's care, support and research.

9 Susan had an assessment in August She was referred after a fall that reinjured the leg she had broken in the past. She had also injured her hand. She was walking with a cane prior to the fall and now was barely able to use it to get around. She also struggled with COPD symptoms. She needed help. Specifically, Susan was having trouble with carrying groceries and/or getting things she needed because she could not carry them. She was going without groceries because she was unable to go out to get them and was unable to afford the travel costs. She also did not have the stamina to prepare what she did have. She was unable to get to assistance from food pantries and since they don t deliver. Susan has pets and said that what food she does have will go to them before she, herself, will eat. She did not have supports in place to help her get the food and other things she needed. She only received $16.00 in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits each month. A Food Insecurity Assessment was conducted, which determined that Susan had received Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) in the past, but when she was unable to pick up the food, she was removed from the program. She never inquired about getting reinstated on the program. Furthermore, she was unaware of a home delivered meal program. She was referred to Meals on Wheels (MOW) as a result of the assessment, and reinstated for her CSFP, which is delivered to her along with her MOW delivery on the week of the distribution. She is currently on the wait list for the Furry Friends program. In October a Follow up Food Insecurity Solutions survey was conducted. Susan is doing well. She is still recuperating but now has MOW along with her CSFP. She even visited the local food pantry when she was in route to the doctor s office, with the help of the Lynx transportation program driver, a program that now helps her get around. Her statement now is: Thank you for your help, I didn t realize how much you and your programs could do for me and how much money you can save me. I never would of made it through this time without your help. I think I am going to be ok now. The Food Insecurity Solutions Program (FIS) aims to reduce food insecurity and provide resources to make food attainable for the long term. The reasons a senior is not eating well are varied and can include lack of money, inability to stand to cook, transportation issues, etc. FIS examines the barriers and matches them with a plan that empowers the consumer to reduce the obstacles through the use of resources, education and coordination. FIS is a program that is working to end empty plates. There are many options to receiving a FIS assessment. The EAAA.org website has an on-line quiz where you can take the quiz and request a full assessment. Clinics are held at various place in the community. You can call and leave a message on the call line, and someone will get in touch with you to do the assessment with you over the phone and/or make an appointment. Just for You - Fall/Winter

10 Dear Marci, My wife is currently a hospital inpatient following a surgery. She is getting excellent care, but we are both nervous about what would happen if she were discharged before she is ready. What should we do if that happens? George (Hartford, CT) Dear George, First, know that your wife has a right to discharge planning as a hospital inpatient, which will give her a chance to address any concerns she has about her health and safety after she leaves the hospital. If she is discharged before she is ready, though, she also has the right to a fast appeal to challenge her provider s decision to end her care. This is called an expedited appeal. To have the highest chance of being successful, you should pay attention to the paperwork your wife receives, and follow directions and deadlines as closely as possible. Also, know that if your wife is too ill or unable to file an appeal for herself, you, another family member, or representative can do so for her. Your wife should have received an Important Notice from Medicare within two days of being admitted to the hospital as an inpatient. This notice has information on how to appeal her discharge. She should receive this notice again no less than four hours before her discharge. In order to begin your wife s appeal, follow the instructions on this message to file an expedited appeal to the Beneficiary and Family-Centered Quality Improvement Organization (BFCC-QIO, or QIO for short). She must appeal to the QIO by midnight on the day of her discharge. If she misses this deadline, she will be able to appeal according to the Original Medicare standard appeal process or the Medicare Advantage post-service standard appeal process. She may also be able to request a good cause extension if exceptional circumstances kept her from filing her appeal on time. These extensions are granted on a case-by-case basis. Once your wife appeals to the QIO, the hospital must give her a Detailed Notice of Discharge. This notice explains in writing why hospital care is ending and lists any Medicare rules related to your wife s case. At this time, the QIO will also request your wife s medical records from the hospital. You may also ask the hospital for a copy of these records, although the hospital may charge you to access them. The QIO will also likely call your wife at this time to get her opinion on the discharge, but she may also submit a written statement. Within 24 hours of receiving all the information it needs, the QIO should call your wife with its decision. If this decision is favorable, her care will continue to be covered. If the decision is unfavorable, your wife will not be responsible for the cost of the 24-hour period she spent in the hospital waiting for the QIO to make its decision. If she remains in the hospital past this period, however, she will be responsible for the cost of her care if she does not win at a higher level of appeal. If you and your wife are unsuccessful at appealing her discharge at this first level, you can continue to appeal. The steps in the processes are different depending on whether your wife is covered by Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan. Throughout the appeals process, it is important to try to get support from your physician to support the medical necessity of your hospital stay. Follow all instructions and deadlines very carefully, and keep copies of all appeal paperwork. -Marci 10 Just for You - Fall/Winter

12 Additional ways we have helped: Are you or someone you know looking for help managing or obtaining medications, completing applications, finding resources for housing, food, transportation, or other services to remain at home? MOOV Penobscot Thriving in Place (TiP) is a service for seniors, adults with disabilities, or adults with chronic health conditions who live in Milford, Orono, Old Town, and Veazie (MOOV). Services are provided by phone or in the home, by offering assistance with solving challenges and identifying resources with a goal of helping people remain in their home and independent. Here is one example of how we have assisted a community member: A doctor referred a senior with severe medical issues who was at risk of losing her housing. We assisted her with her housing needs, obtaining home health services, applying for MaineCare and food stamps, and helped her get her car safely into storage while she wasn t able to drive. All of this support has allowed her to remain at home. If you or someone you know have questions or want more information about MOOV TiP, contact: Ronda Savage LCPC-C, ext or Eastern Area Agency on Aging There are no obligations and services provided are confidential. Connected a male in his 60s with a support group, food resources, and heating assistance. Assisted him with obtaining a YMCA membership and seeking his GED. Supported a family in determining next steps for their father who is living with dementia. Helped the family with housing options and shared power of attorney information in addition to information on specialized care for dementia patients.

She is now doing volunteer work and going to physical therapy. Assisted a woman who was in an unsafe home environment by finding her transitionary housing. In the new home environment, she is now able to get to her appointments and receive her medications. 12 Just for You - Fall/Winter
