GENTOG - Marcie JonesWe all need a little inspiration. I’ve found that it is helpful to have a book or two on the bedside table that I can reach for when my spirits need a lift. Today I have 3 book suggestions for family caregivers.

Creating Moments of Joy by Jolene Brackey, encourages us to look beyond the challenges of Alzheimer's disease and focus more of our energy on creating moments of joy. We can’t always create a perfect day with someone who has dementia, but it is absolutely attainable to create some wonderful moments. This is an easy to read book, full of ideas and inspiration.

Color Yourself Happy was created by local artist Tara Reed. It is a coloring book for grown-ups who want to focus on being happy. Every picture has the word "Happy" in it. Just like in life, sometimes it is large and easy to spot and other times it's small and hidden. This book features 50 happy illustrations - 25 sayings and 25 designs. Coloring can be very therapeutic!

Bring Back the Fun by Marcie Jones is a compilation of ideas from my personal experience as the primary caregiver for my Gram, as well as the ideas that are used successfully every day at Gentog. The reading of this book is intended to be fun as well...it is written from the perspective of the person with dementia...mostly in the voice of my feisty Gram. You are sure to find several ideas that you can put to use right away. 

All of these titles can be purchased through Amazon.com. Life as a caregiver really can include the words Joy, Happy and Fun…find out how with these books.

Jarod Cogswell, FIT AcademyDid you know that there are more people at the gym struggling with the same life challenges... body image, depression, low self-esteem and other negative energy vampires? And believe it or not, even the fitness fanatics that look physically amazing are trapped by self-destructive emotions.

The truth is that fitness benefits contain much more than simply the physical rewards. Exercise gives us confidence, a sense of self-worth, pride and the list of positives for a happy life are in the thousands.

After 20-plus years of doing what I can to help change lives through fitness, I can honestly tell you that it doesn't matter what you look like. What matters is how you feel.

I’ve experienced quite a few people coming into the gym setting with a cloud of darkness above them and I always say, "Let's put a smile on your face and the body will follow."

Recently I asked random FIT Academy members what life lessons consistent exercise has given them.

Answers included:

“Don’t give up before the ‘miracles’ happen”

“Comparison is the thief of joy”

“Uncomfortability brings me growth”

“Never cheat yourself of the gift you have been given”

“I CAN!”

The other benefit of fitness? Friends. Support. Love. Hanging around like-minded people with similar challenges is motivating and inspiring. Connect with the right people, get results physically, mentally and spiritually.

Start transforming your life today. Don't wait. You get one shot. Make it count.

Steve Stolze, SLS Custom HomesFor homeowners who want to stay put as they age, Certified Aging-in-Place Specialists such as SLS Custom Homes can make what seems impossible, possible.

The National Association of Homebuilders (NAHB) offers the certification, which according to its website entails the following:

The Certified Aging-in-Place Specialist (CAPS) designation program teaches the technical, business management, and customer service skills essential to competing in the fastest-growing segment of the residential remodeling industry: home modifications for the aging-in-place.

The Baby Boom generation has many choices when they choose where to live as they age. But overwhelmingly, seniors would prefer to stay in their own homes. The CAPS designation allows seniors to seek what they need most: reassurance that a remodeler is well-versed in accessibility issues and can professionally advise them on how to make their home safe and secure.

In addition, a CAPS-certified remodel can make a senior’s home more “visitable.” Even if the homeowners don’t think they need additional task lighting, grab bars, and other home modifications for their own use, their family members and visitors might.

The CAPS designation enables us to help clients make the right choices and enjoy their home for many years to come.

Mike McCleskeyAnne MCleskeyLooking for a wine tasting at a vineyard, without a long drive?

Look no further than Horseleap Vineyard, located about five miles from downtown Tigard off Beef Bend Road, owned by Mike and Anne McCleskey.

Mark your calendar for June 18, from noon to 5 pm, when the McCleskeys host a release party.

The 6.75-acre vineyard — planted in 2001 — has Pinot Gris, two clones of Pinot Noir and Gamay Noir grapes.

All McCleskey Cellars wines served in the Horseleap Saloon are made from grapes grown in the vineyard.

The rustic saloon feels like visiting a mountain lodge or a pub. Inside the wood-paneled room are walls lined with shot glasses, a cardboard cutout of John Wayne, an American flag and a bear hide. Above the bar is a maiden leading a ship out of the wall.

Horseleap, Ireland, is the ancestral home of Mike McCleskey’s family. Anne Campbell McCleskey shares Mike’s Celtic pride.

The couple hails from Wyoming, but has been in Oregon for decades. Mike went to medical school in Portland. After military service, he and Anne returned to Oregon, settling in Tigard, where Mike had a family practice until his retirement.

“A glass of pinot each day beats the hell out of an apple. Not too much, but certainly not too little” is the McCleskeys’ favorite saying.

Join them for a summer afternoon in June.

Askol Saieedi, Prestige Care RiverwoodIt’s no secret that senior living can be a major expense. Thankfully, two government programs offer a safety net to seniors. Read on for more information on Medicare and Medicaid.

Medicare

Medicare is a national health insurance program available to all Americans when they turn 65.

Similar to private health insurance, Medicare is great for reducing or eliminating the cost of certain prescription medications, doctor appointments and hospitalizations. After hospitalization, Medicare will usually pay for a skilled nurse or caregiver to visit you at home, but only during a set period of recovery.

Unfortunately, Medicare is intended only for short-term care, and generally does not pay for extended periods of treatment, including long stays at independent, assisted living or memory care senior communities.

Medicaid

Unlike Medicare, Medicaid can and regularly does pay for long-term senior living care, though certain requirements apply. In general, Medicaid recipients must show that they are low income, facing medical expenses that exceed their income or that they have already spent the majority of their savings on health care costs.

At this point, Medicaid benefits can pay for long-term “nursing home” care, as well as alternatives like in-home care or assisted living.

Prestige Senior Living and Riverwood are committed to making senior living affordable for all. For more help, give one of our Prestige team members a call—they can help you navigate the system and determine your eligibility.

Annette Saarinen, Accountax of OregonDid you know that day camp may qualify as day care for the Child and Dependent Care Credit?

This does not apply to overnight camp. As you are planning for summer care for your dependents, you may be eligible for this credit.

To take this credit, you will need the daycare provider’s full name, address, social security number or Federal Employer ID number, and the amount paid for the day care expense. The Expense limit is $3,000 per dependent or $6,000 if there are two or more qualifying dependents.

The Federal credit percentage used to calculate the credit (20 -35 percent) is based on Adjusted Gross Income (AGI). The maximum credit for federal would be $1,050 for one child. The percentage rate decreases as the AGI increases.

If you qualify for the federal credit, you may also qualify for the Oregon credit which is based on a percentage of Taxable Income. The Oregon credit phases out at $45,000 of taxable income.

This is a non-refundable credit, but it can be carried forward for the next 5 years.

There are other rules regarding eligibility for this credit, including (but not limited to) earned income, age of the dependent, age of the provider, relationship of the provider to the taxpayer/dependent, and custody of the dependent, and whether you have day care assistance from your employer’s plan.

If you have questions about deductibility of day care expenses, please call our office and talk to one of our licensed tax preparers.

GENTOG - Marcie JonesProviding care to your spouse is an act of love and sacrifice. It does not, however, need to be 24 hours per day, every day, to be a true act of love. You can—and should—find time to replenish your soul.

If you never take time for you, there will be nothing left of you to give. Your tenderness, your kindness and your love will begin to lose the battle to impatience and resentment. Without intending to, you’ll stop providing loving care and begin to feel burdened. And he will sense that. Neither of you will be happy.

Finding an alternative for even a few hours a week will make a difference. Studies show that caregivers need at LEAST four hours per week to do something that they enjoy—that will truly replenish their spirit—in order to stay healthy. So how can you find that time? Get creative!

Start with family. Ask your children to come visit Dad so you can get away for a few hours. They might surprise you and say yes!

Ask your friends. Maybe your best friend’s husband would enjoy visiting with your husband while the two of you go to a movie.

Find a professional. In-home care agencies abound. Find one that you trust and make arrangements for a regular caregiver to come in and allow you to go out.

Find an adult day program. While you enjoy your time out, your spouse can actually enjoy making new friends, participating in meaningful activities, exercising and lunching with pals. Imagine that—BOTH of you could enjoy a few hours apart. Imagine how pleasant the evening could be after a day like that.

If you’re looking for a great place for your loved one to spend time while you take time for you…check out the program at Gentog. We’re here for you!

Nancy Felton, Crescent Grove Cemetery & MausoleumThis year in Tigard, Memorial Day will be recognized May 30 at 11 a.m. by the American Legion Post 158 at Crescent Grove Cemetery, 9925 S.W. Greenburg Road.

There will be a Veteran’s Color Guard and bagpipe music from the Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue Pipe Band. An Avenue of Flags will be displayed all weekend.

Weather permitting, there will be an F-15 flyover.

The origins of Memorial Day trace back to May 1868, in the wake of the Civil War, to honor the many war dead across the nation. The 30th of May was designated as “Decoration Day,” for the purpose of strewing veterans’ graves with flowers – union and confederate soldiers alike.

In May 1966, President Lyndon Johnson declared Waterloo, N.Y., the birthplace of Memorial Day. In 1971, Congress declared the last Monday in May a national holiday to honor any Americans who died fighting in any war.

A 1915 poem by John McCrae, “In Flanders Fields,” lauded poppies as a symbol of remembrance to the war dead. By 1922, the poppy had become the symbol of the Veterans of Foreign Wars in America, Britain, France, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Please join us at Crescent Grove Cemetery for a day of remembrance and to honor the men and women who gave their lives for our country.

CARTRIDGE-NETWORK - Griffin HampsonAny inkjet printer with four or more “tank” ink cartridges has a separate printhead. Cartridges lock into the printer’s carriage feeding ink to the printhead.

This differs from the two-cartridge system; a black and a tri-color cartridge, where the printhead is a physical component of each cartridge.

Guess what? Tank-style printheads clog up. Lots of use, little use or general use. They clog up.

So, all Brother, Epson, Canon and HP printers with four or more cartridges have a printhead which needs to be cleaned periodically.

At Cartridge Network’s store we ask customers purchasing tank-style cartridges if they clean their printer’s printheads. Maybe 15 percent say they do. Ten percent know about it but don’t and 75 percent look at us as if we’re nuts.

We go over a handout with short instructions for each type of printer and give it to them. Come in or call us for a copy.

One can clean the printhead directly from the printer or from one’s computer. A test page is the first step indicating if all the nozzles are printing correctly or clogged. If clogged, do a “deep clean.” If they are severely clogged, you may have to repeat the process many times.

If they become too clogged you will be looking for a new printer. Really? We recycle several printers daily which are old or have clogged printheads. We probably have a good new printer waiting for you.

Why do we go to these lengths explaining printhead clearing? Because so many people come in with print quality samples or their actual printers. Most are astonished by the process. So easy. Once they’re aware and clean periodically, everyone’s life is easier.

Yes, you will use a little ink, but doing so sure beats having a poor print when you are actually trying to print something.

As a full-service independent, non-franchise operation located in Raleigh Hills, on the Portland – Beaverton border, Cartridge Network sells and services printers and copiers. “We stock several dozen different printer models (inkjet and laser) and copiers too. We focus on a buyer’s needs and then explore alternatives to best meet their needs.” We stock several thousand different cartridges. Shipping is free.

OREGON HEARING SOLUTIONS - Dr. Scott JohnsonThe repercussions of poor decision-making reverberate far longer than our actions. This can be especially hard for younger folks to understand.

This message hits home after learning that Brian Johnson, lead singer of iconic rock-and-roll group AC/DC, can no longer perform with his band.

Johnson recently told CNN that he risked “total deafness” if he continued to perform in large stadiums and arenas. In a statement, he said that he already has difficulty hearing the guitars and other musicians on stage.

Johnson called his new diagnosis his “darkest day.” It’s a poignant reminder that we often don’t appreciate what we have until it’s gone.

The culprit? Sensorineural hearing loss. Damage to the inner ear caused by overexposure to loud noises is usually permanent and cannot be repaired, either by surgery or medication. But, like all forms of noise-induced hearing loss, it is entirely preventable.

Preventing sensorineural hearing loss costs as little as a pair of foam ear plugs. If you or a loved one are routinely exposed to constant loud noise over 85 decibels (about as loud as a vacuum cleaner), make sure to dampen those sounds or leave the area.

The good news? If you have already been diagnosed or suspect you may suffer from noise-induced hearing loss, there are excellent options and technology available to help you regain the sounds you’ve been missing. Give us a call to learn more about sensorineural hearing loss, how it can be prevented, or what to do after being diagnosed.

Marissa Phillips, ComForCare Home CareQ: We’re hoping to go on a one- or two-week vacation this summer for the first time in ages, but we’re very concerned about leaving my mother without proper care. Is respite care from a company such as yours a possibility?

A: Absolutely!

Our staff will come and do an assessment to make sure we can meet your mom’s needs.

The RN will create a care plan specific to her and we will identify the staff we feel will be a good fit with her situation. You are welcome to meet the caregiver at your home or at our office and ask questions.

We have one family that calls us every summer to stay with Mom while the family goes camping in the wilderness for a week.

It’s been wonderful for all of them, including Mom.

Q: What services are provided for longer-term respite care?

A: Every case is different, we can start out slow and go to full 24/7 care if needed.

We provide care for one family that has a private caregiver and we fill in on their vacation/sick time. We have other families that live out of the country.

Care Management is one of our specialties. We take clients to doctor’s appointments, assist at the hospital and help manage the care needs once they are discharged.

Recently a family member texted me, saying, “Thanks for doing this, it’s the first time in 5 years I haven’t had to put my family on the back burner when my brother got sick.”
