PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING RIVERWOOD - Kara TobeySeptember is Healthy Aging month — a great time to consider ways to reinvent yourself.

According to Carolyn Worthington, editor-in-chief of Healthy Aging Magazine, it’s never too late to find a new career, sport, passion or hobby. Here are a few ideas to get you going:

Be pos­i­tive in your con­ver­sa­tions and your actions every day. When you catch your­self com­plain­ing, check your­self right there and change the con­ver­sa­tion to some­thing pos­i­tive.

Walk like a vibrant, healthy per­son. Come on. You can prob­a­bly do it. Ana­lyze your gait. Do you walk slowly because you have just become lazy or, per­haps, have a fear of falling? (Tip: Make a con­scious effort to take big strides, walk with your heel first, and wear com­fort­able shoes.)

Lonely? Stop brood­ing and com­plain­ing about hav­ing no friends or fam­ily. Do some­thing about it now. Right this minute. Pick up the phone, land­line, or cell and make a call to do one or more of the fol­low­ing: Vol­un­teer your time, Take a class, invite some­one to meet for lunch, brunch, din­ner, or cof­fee.

Get outdoors! Start walk­ing not only for your health but to see the neigh­bors. Have a dog? You’ll be amazed how the dog can be a con­ver­sa­tion starter. (Tip: If you don’t have time for a dog, go to your local ani­mal shel­ter and vol­un­teer.)

Make this month the time to set up your annual phys­i­cal and other health screen­ings. Go to the appoint­ments and then, hope­fully, you can stop wor­ry­ing about ail­ments for a while.

ACCOUNTAX OF OREGON - Annette SaarinenIf you pay for college in 2016, you may receive some tax savings on your federal tax return, even if you’re studying outside of the U.S.

Both the American Opportunity Tax Credit and the Lifetime Learning Credit may reduce the amount of tax you owe, but only the AOTC is partially refundable.

Here are a few things you should know about education credits:  

1. American Opportunity Tax Credit - The AOTC is worth up to $2,500 per year for an eligible student. This credit is available for the first four years of higher education. Forty percent of the AOTC is refundable. That means, if you’re eligible, you can get up to $1,000 of the credit as a refund, even if you do not owe any tax.

2. Lifetime Learning Credit - The LLC is worth up to $2,000 per tax return. There is no limit on the number of years that you can claim the LLC for an eligible student.

In general, qualified expenses for the education tax credits include tuition and required fees for the enrollment or attendance at eligible post-secondary educational institutions (including colleges, universities and trade schools).

The expenses paid during the tax year must be for an academic period that begins in the same tax year or an academic period that begins in the first three months of the following tax year.

Room and board, transportation, insurance, medical expenses and such are not covered.

If you have any questions about how you may qualify for an additional tax credits, please feel free to contact us.

WOODLAND HEIGHTS ASSISTED LIVING RESIDENCE - Linda ElderThe hot summer days of August and September are certainly here.

Our chef at Woodland Heights has been busy changing menus to lighter fare such as the wonderful Fresh Mango and Tarragon Chicken Salad for lunch and the new Fresh Peach Bars added to the ever-opulent dessert cart.

Our Life Enrichment crew has been scurrying to change the daily walk groups to mornings instead of afternoons and reschedule weekly outings to shaded sites with cool refreshments. Our care staff is diligently encouraging fluids to all of our residents during the day, including passing water and juice throughout the building.

For those of you at home, we hope you are keeping well also.

Dehydration can creep up on you before you notice it and cause changes like confusion, lethargy and imbalanced walking. Many folks are not fans of drinking plain water. Use those fresh fruits and juices packed with nutritious fluid to keep hydrated. Avoid caffeine, which flushes fluid from your body.

Do your shopping in the morning when it’s cool. Pull curtains to keep heat out. At night, if you have screens and adjustable locking windows, leave the windows open a bit to allow the cool night air into your home. Keep out of the sun for more than a short time. Garden in the early morning.

Or come on over for a tour of our nicely air-conditioned home in the woods set quietly up above the traffic and congestion. We’ll even buy you lunch!

BEEBE CHIROPRACTIC - Dr. Daniel BeebeWhile the U.S. suffers an ever-rising opioid epidemic, The American Chiropractic Association (ACA) is building on its efforts to raise awareness of the value of a conservative approach to pain management.   "Chiropractic services are an important first line of defense against pain and, in some cases, can lessen a patient's reliance on addictive painkillers or prevent their use altogether," said ACA President David Herd, DC.

"It makes sense to exhaust conservative forms of treatment such as chiropractic before moving on to riskier, potentially addictive pain medications."   Statistics show that as many as one in four patients who receive prescription opioids long-term for non-cancer pain in primary-care settings struggles with addiction. In addition, every day more than 1,000 people are treated in the emergency room for misusing prescription opioids.   Using treatments such as spinal manipulation, chiropractic physicians take a drug-free approach to treating back pain, neck pain and other musculoskeletal disorders. High-quality research has found spinal manipulation to be effective for acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.   In the wake of the opioid epidemic, many respected health care organizations now recommend non-drug treatments.

For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — in its 2016 guidelines for prescribing opioids — notes that nonpharmacologic therapies are preferred for treating chronic pain.

In addition, the National Pain Strategy, an initiative by several federal agencies, recognizes chiropractic's value as a method for pain management.

Q FAMILY DENTAL - Dr. Quenton GebeauRecent news reports question whether existing scientific research supports the oral health benefits of flossing.

The bottom line? A lack of strong evidence doesn’t equate to a lack of effectiveness. Dentists are in the best position to advise their patients on oral hygiene practices because they know their patient’s oral health status and health history.

The longstanding recommendation to clean between teeth daily is still supported by the Surgeon General, the Centers for Disease Control and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. According to the American Dental Association (ADA), flossing is an essential part of taking care of your teeth and gums.

Cleaning between teeth removes plaque that can lead to cavities or gum disease. In fact, up to 50 percent of the tooth’s surface is missed by brushing without flossing. 

Inter-dental cleaning is proven to help remove debris between teeth that can contribute to plaque and tartar buildup. Together with food debris and other components, the plaque buildup around the teeth and gums will contribute to periodontal disease and cavities.

To maintain good oral health, the American Dental Association continues to recommend brushing for two minutes twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, cleaning between teeth once a day with an interdental cleaner and regular dental check-ups. 

So remember, F.B.I. (Floss, Brush, Irrigate). 

Live well, smile often and “May the floss be with you!!”

ACCOUNTAX OF OREGON - Annette SaarinenPart of the PATH Act of 2015 requires educational institutions to issue Forms 1098-T, showing the amount paid for qualified tuition and related expenses beginning with calendar year 2016 forms.

 

The educational institutions were told they had to report the amounts paid during the year. 

Many institutions told the IRS they had difficulty doing this, so the IRS allowed extra time to get their software set up.

Then the IRS gave them the option of reporting the amounts either when paid (Form 1098-T, box 1) or when billed (Form 1098-T, box 2).  IRS has stated many times that the amount shown in box 2 is not sufficient proof of the amount paid during the year and that a taxpayer should obtain records showing how much was paid to the institution during the applicable year.

However, IRS examiners focused on the amount on Forms 1098-T — regardless of which box the amount was in — and denied credits when there was a discrepancy between the amount on the form and the amount claimed on the return.

 

Since PATH Act of 2015 requires the institutions to show the amounts paid, many tax professionals have expressed relief that the institutions will now have to provide information that will be more likely to match with the real amount of tuition paid during the year. 

Many of the Forms 1098-T that our clients receive for the 2016 calendar year still will not show the amounts paid. 

Give us a call and let our tax professionals clear the PATH for you.

PRESTIGE SENIOR LIVING - Kara TobeyDeciding to move to an assisted living community isn’t always an easy decision, but it’s better than leaving a problem unsolved. Here are five signs it's time to consider a new home at Prestige Senior Living – Riverwood.

Altered eating habits. Forgetting to eat or losing interest in food altogether are both signs of poor health. Alternatively, seniors with memory issues can overeat or repeat meals. A kitchen stocked with spoiled, half-eaten or expired food suggests a senior who can no longer manage their diet alone.

Antisocial behavior. Losing interest in friends, withdrawing from social situations or neglecting a previously cherished hobby may indicate depression, memory loss or a decline in cognitive abilities.

Worsening finances. A senior who forgets to pay bills (or pays them multiple times) may need help managing their household finances. Look for unwanted magazine subscriptions or donation solicitations that can easily drain a bank account. Scammers routinely target seniors as well.

Poor personal hygiene. Many seniors feel uncomfortable asking for help with personal hygiene. Bad odors, a disheveled appearance or indications of skipped showers and baths all suggest that a senior can no longer perform daily grooming tasks unaided.

Decline in safety. For a senior, a fall in the shower (and the subsequent hospitalization) can be a life-threatening injury. A senior who leaves the stove on or forgets how often to take their medication may need more daily help.
