Ways To Pay for Assisted Living

Dolls Havens Services - BedroomsWays to Pay for Assisted Living

When it comes time to retire, most seniors think that their social security benefits will take care of it. But often times the benefit is not enough.  There are several additional ways to help pay for assisted living.

If you had a good financial planner, perhaps you had a Annuities Plan. Or maybe you have a Line of Credit, or owned a home, you could do a Reverse Mortgage.

Or like a lot of seniors, part-time work is necessary for long-term care and living expenses.  Additional methods to pay for assisted living could be using your life insurance, selling your life insurance in a form of life settlements, can generate income for you.  Or you can purchase Long Term Care Insurance.

If you are a veteran there are Veterans Benefits that can help you pay for long term assisted living expenses.  Then there is the ability to apply for disability benefits from the state. If you a very low income, you can also try to apply for Section 8 Housing.

Senior Adult Day Care

Senior Adult Day Care

Adult Day Care Menifee CASenior Adult Day Care in Menifee.  Does your senior parent need adult day care? We have the ability to help them get the mind and physical stimulation they need to keep interested in life.

As adults grow older they tend to sleep more lightly and often awaken during the night from needing to go to the bathroom or just wake up from achy joints.  So many seniors make up for lost hours of sleep by catching up with naps during the day. Elders with dementia also seem to sleep more during the day, often falling asleep when they lose interest in meals or fail to notice that they need to use the bathroom.

Boredom, depression chronic pain or other deficiencies can the the cause of adults falling asleep at odd time during the day.  Medications can also be the cause.  If you want your senior adult to stay awake more during the day and sleep better at night, then an Adult Day Care Provider can help.

Just the schedule of getting to the Adult Day Care Home can be very helpful for the Senior.  Dolls Havens, has full time residents, but can also provide Adult Day Care for your Senior.  Just getting your senior to participate in card games, music listening, or sing a-longs, can help them get the stimulation they need to sleep less during the day. Even the companionship and day trips can help the elder maintain an interest in life.  Engaging in activities can really help your senior feel better and stay awake longer during the day.  At Dolls Havens we offer crossword puzzles, trivia games and activities to give mind stimulation, interaction with our home residents can be very interesting to your senior.

Dolls Havens is located in Sun City California, in a Community of Menifee CA.

Senior Assisted Living

Senior Assisted Living

assisted living facilities sun city menifee caWhen your senior parents start to show signs that they need help with their daily living, its time to talk about assisted living facilities. If you find them struggling with basic activities like walking, getting to the toilet, or taking care of basic hygiene its time to talk about living in an assisted living facility.

Talk to your senior parents about this important transition when they are comfortable and have no distractions so you may have a good and productive conversation.  Avoid being critical, your goal is to bring a decision that is helpful and the in the best interest of the Senior Parent.

Point to discuss with your parents are:

  • Problems with safety hazards at home.
  • Difficulties with everyday activities.
  • Do Mobility Issues exist?
  • Health Issue.  Are there chronic health problems?
  • Does the Senior have financial issues?

These are all good points to discuss when trying to make the Assisted Living Transition.

When its time to move, be sure to help with the downsizing and figuring out what things should be taken or sold or given away.  At this point in time downsizing can be real depressing for your seniors.  Be sure to be positive and supportive.

The Home at Dolls Haven is really like Home.  Living in a private Assisted Living Home can really make the Elder feel like they are still living at home with a family.  Be sure to call us and discuss your options.  Bill and Denise Williams are very glad to discuss any of your special needs for seniors needing assisted living.

Our main website for Senior Assisted Living in Sun City / Menifee California is Dolls Havens Com.

Senior Tips Fourth of July

man-cooking-on-grill-in-backyardSenior Tips Fourth of July

If you are planning a family outing for your senior family members or friends.

When Barbequing or  Cooking Outdoors –

Find out what sort of seating should be used.  If you have backless picnic benches, consider that elderly persons will sit on it and have no back support.  Try providing folding chairs, or stack-able plastic chairs.  Even a cushion will help keep back pain in check for seniors.  Many seniors have to deal with back pain and will find sitting for long periods uncomfortable.

If your guests are in a wheelchairs, make sure you have wide enough and slopes gentle enough to maneuver in the back yard.

If you do not have lots of shade, then use portable beach umbrellas to help keep bright sun off of your senior guests.

Seniors should consider wearing comfortable clothes that include layers, never know when the wind will pick up and give them a chill.  Also use sturdy shoes to prevent falls and trips.  Don’t forget the sun screen for your senior’s skin.

At a barbeque party be sure to set up a spot for your senior away from the hot grill and any areas where children may be likely to throw balls or roughing around.

Make sure they are closely locate near the bathrooms. Seniors often need to take several restroom breaks.

Take care that your seniors do not get dehydrated.  Make sure they have plenty of water. Avoid alcoholic beverages, due to dehydration and it can conflict with medications.

Watch seniors for signs of restlessness, overheating or other distress. Try not to put any pressure on seniors for socializing or talking to other.  It makes them feel comfortable just to be around others without the pressure of talking.

We hope you all have a wonder Fourth of July Celebration ….

Senior Mothers Day Gifts

Senior Mothers Day Gifts

mothers day for seniorsSeniors Mothers Day Gifts can be difficult to figure out sometimes. You should try a homemade gift.   Some great homemade gifts can really be more rewarding that store bought flowers and candy.  How about making a Memory Jar or a Photo Bouquet?

Here are some simple instructions.

Memory Jar

For a Memory Jar, you will need a nice jar, several pieces of paper and time to work on it.  On each piece of paper write down a different memory of a wonderful time that you have shared with your mother.  Fold the pieces of paper and place them in the jar so she can read them over time.  What a wonderful way to share memories with your mother.  Even after the day is over, she can go back and read them again and again.

seniors mothers dayPhoto Bouquet

Flowers are always beautiful, but they eventually dye and wither.  How about giving a bouquet of photos that will last and last.  Cut flower shapes from construction paper and gluing photo cut-outs in the center of the flower.  Have color copies of photos to use.  Try to find photos of child memories or take new digital images and get them printed.  Paste these photos onto the flower shapes and add outer frames to add more color.  You can then glue green stems to hold the photos up and form a bouquet.  Place them into a nice little vase, or paste them on a bigger home made card.

We hope you have a Happy Mothers Day on May 11, 2014
