Managing the Parent/Child Role Reversal

As your parents age, you may find yourself dealing with the parent/child role reversal. How can you manage this tricky transition without taking away your parents' dignity and independence? Elder Care Coordinator Bre Simmons explains.

Don’t Be Misled by False Medicare or Social Security Ads

Online and otherwise, there’s a lot of information out there, and sometimes it’s difficult to tell what sources are credible. With millions of people relying on Social Security, scammers target audiences who are looking for program and benefit information. The law that addresses misleading Social Security and Medicare advertising prohibits people or non-government businesses from using words or emblems that mislead others. Their advertising can’t lead people to believe that they represent, are somehow affiliated with, or endorsed or approved by Social Security or the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (Medicare). People are often misled by advertisers who use the terms “Social Security

Learning the Art of the Ask

by Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA When told that you will be living with dementia, you may choose to retreat. Decide to pull away and hide. Find yourself hiding in a private, dark, and lonely cave. Each person is unique, and yet many people find themselves unable or unwilling to come out, to re-engage with the life they had before the announcement, to start a new life after the words were said. How can those around them help? How can they provide the just right support to engage this hurting human being, in living? Where is the boundary between their right to solitude and your responsibility to offer a way forward? If the offer is too forceful or demanding, the person may well reject it as an

Sex, Intimacy & Dementia

How does dementia affect sex and intimacy? The diagnosis of dementia in one person in a relationship does not have to mean the end of a healthy sex life for both. People can continue to derive pleasure from one another, and sex can provide a source of support and comfort to both parties in the relationship for many years to come. Just with all relationships over time, however, changes may occur when dementia enters the home. As the brain is the control center for everything in the body, depending on the part of the brain that is affected, the person with dementia may: Have more interest in sex Have less interest in sex Experience changes in ability to perform sex Have less inhibitions, and m

Medicaid: Not Just for the Nursing Home

When most people think of Medicaid paying for the care of older adults, they think about nursing home care. But this public benefit program will pay for care in the home in certain circumstances. Attorney Bayli Fields explains.

Kimbrough Law Opens Virtual Online Office

Older adults anywhere in Georgia can now get help with VA benefits and elder law, thanks to the launch of Kimbrough Law’s Virtual Online Office. “Opening a Virtual Online Office was a logical next step for us,” said Kimbrough, who launched the firm’s flagship brick-and-mortar location in Athens in 2012 and opened a second location in Gainesville in 2016. “In the last year, people from other parts of Georgia have been asking us to help them with veterans benefit claims and other elder law matters. We’re now able to do so.” To meet in Kimbrough Law’s Virtual Online Office, families need nothing more than a WIFI connection, and a smart phone, computer or digital device with a microphone or a ca

There Are Many Things We Want to Pass on to Our Loved Ones—Illness Is Not One of Them

Most of us want to pass on certain things like family traditions, a grandmother’s quilt or dad’s love of books—but no one wants to pass on a serious illness. If you're looking after elderly loved ones, help them take charge of their health by asking about vaccines at their next doctor’s visit. Vaccinating children is commonplace in the United States. But many adults don’t know which vaccines they need, and even fewer are fully vaccinated. Every year, thousands of adults in the U.S. become needlessly ill from infectious diseases. Many adults are hospitalized and some even die from diseases that could be prevented by vaccines. Not only can vaccine-preventable diseases make a person very sick,
