1 DORCHESTER COUNTY COMMISSION ON THE AGING, INC. Pleasant Thoughts VOLUME 20, ISSUE 9 S EPTEMBER 2013 Bringing Loved Ones Home Isn t that a comforting thought; especially if you have a loved one who may wander. In the United States, there are approximately 5 million persons with Alzheimer's disease and over 50% of these people will wander away and become lost. How sad and scary is that? Project Life Saver, whose motto is Bringing Loved Ones Home is a service offered for free by the The Project Life Saver is displayed at. Pictured are Sgt. Gary Blades, Sheriff James Phillips, Ray Parker, Safety-Transportation Manager, and Jackie Vickers, Executive Director. Dorchester County Sheriff s Office. The Sheriff s Office provides a transmitter in the form of a personalized wristband, emitting a silent signal every second, 24 hours a day. This signal is tracked on the ground and air over several miles. Each wristband has a unique frequency so Project Live Saver can quickly locate the person who has wandered off. And remember, there is no cost, however, there are conditions: The client must be a resident of Dorchester County and must have a legally responsible caregiver to enroll the client into the program; clients and caregivers must abide by the conditions of the program contract and complete the application process. When caregiver s notify the Sheriff s Office that a loved one is missing, a trained deputy responds and, begins the search, using specialized tracking equipment. Utilizing this technology, search times have been reduced from hours to minutes, averaging less than 30 minutes. Again, it is all about Bringing Loved Ones Home. During the day, provides, at no additional cost, a wandering guard for participants who have a propensity to wander. But this only works while a participant is at. Project Life Saver is a 24-hour program, and there is no cost, just a commitment to keeping your loved one safe. For more information on Project Life Saver, contact Sgt. John Stichberry or Lt. Jeffrey Biskach at the Sheriff s Office. Sheriff James Phillips Jr. says the safety of the citizens of Dorchester is our highest priority, so while Alzheimer s disease is the most frequent reason, Autism, Down Syndrome and other disorders that cause chronic wandering are also eligible. Call for more information.

2 Pleasant Thoughts Page 2 A MESSAGE FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR: Each year since Medical Adult Day Care opened, National Adult Day Care Week has been celebrated during the third week of September. This week, like every other week, wants to get the word out regarding what a great service provides. Adult Jackie J. Vickers Day services acts as an alternative or supplement to home care and an alternative to moving into assisted living or a nursing home to receive care. Nationwide, medical adult day care has grown rapidly from 2000 centers in 1989 to 4600 centers in Some of this growth can be attributed to the increase in the aging population. Mostly though it is because medical adult day care allows individuals to remain in their homes rather than be institutionalized, which is what the majority of caregivers and care recipients desire. And there is cost; Medical Adult Day Care, providing nursing care, breakfast, lunch and snack, activities, interaction with peers, trips in the community (even to Ocean City) transportation, social worker assistance, physical therapy, while still living at home and with family, costs about 50% less than nursing home care. Adult Day services are effective in reducing burden, worry, anger and depression of caregivers. But most important is that case controlled studies suggest that adult day services improves health-related quality of life for participants. That is the result that strives to achieve each and every day and the reason to come to work. opened in March of 1987, licensed for 16 participants, and has grown and moved into a state of the art medical adult day care center licensed for 100 participants.

The meeting is open to the public and is led by Tish Wallace, Admissions Coordinator of. This past month, Lacie Yacko, Occupational Therapist of University of Maryland Shore Regional Health at Cambridge, presented information to the participants and also demonstrated assistive devices for everyday living; i.e. tying your shoes. The meetings are held from 1:00-2:00 on the fourth Thursday. Please call Tish Wallace at for more information. Computers Need Upgrading Send an to your grandson? Visit the Vatican in Rome? Play bowling on-line? Your granddaughter just had a baby girl and you received the picture just hours after her birth is this possible? The answer to all is yes, with the assistance of the participant computer lab. This lab, with five stations, gives participants the enjoyment of everything a computer has to offer. It has been open for 5 years but it s time to update. Research has found the benefits of the computer system to be many for our participants, whether it s a young adult with a brain injury or an energetic 85 year old who still wants to learn and have fun. One of the greatest benefits is being able to keep the participant in communication with family near and far. It also allows folks to use their creativity using programs such as greeting card creation or painting; from Facebook to Twitter, making on-line purchases, doing genealogy research or even using the Webcam to Skype with family across the country. All stations are connected to high-speed internet allowing participant computer lab virtual access to almost anything and anywhere. The computer lab provides a lifelong learning opportunity for the younger folks, as well as the elderly. The lab is now down to three stations that are struggling to run. All equipment has come from hand-me-down donations when people buy new equipment for themselves. Volunteer instructors to spend an hour or two, per week, to teach computer basics, such as using , the internet, research techniques, etc. are needed. Currently, we have a waiting list to use the lab and we anticipate, with the constant increase of baby boomers reaching the age where they will need medical adult day care, the demand for technology will grow. We have participants now who want to stream videos, connect their mp3 players, record themselves playing the guitar and singing, etc. We can do all of these things, but we need more current hard/software to meet these requests. To re-establish the computer lab we need five towers, monitors (large and diminishing eyesight friendly), mouse(s), keyboards, webcams, earphones, microphones and other peripherals. Can you help? Call Ray at , ext. 106 if you d be willing to make a donation. Article by Ray Parker, Facilities-Safety Manager at

6 Pleasant Thoughts Page 6 Nurses Corner by Lisa Lewis, RN, Director Alzheimer s Disease September 21 is recognized yearly as World Alzheimer Day. It is a day to increase global awareness about Alzheimer's. Each year the day focuses on a single message. The 2013 message is a journey of caring. Alzheimer s disease, the most common form of dementia, is an irreversible progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills and the ability to carry out the simplest task. Fisher Center for Alzheimer s Research Foundation states every 68 seconds someone develops Alzheimer s Disease. Experts suggest that as many as 5.1 million Americans are living with Alzheimer s. There is currently no cure for the disease. The number of people affected is set to rise to over 115 million by 2050, if no cure is found (Alzheimer's Disease International). With the increases in life span and baby boomers coming of age, more support for Alzheimer research and care is needed. Most symptoms of Alzheimer s appear after the age of 60. The first warning sign is memory loss. There are three stages of the disease: mild, moderate, and severe. Mild Alzheimer problems can include getting lost, difficulty managing money, repeating questions, taking longer to complete regularly tasks, poor judgment, and mood changes. Moderate Alzheimer's have difficulty recognizing friends and family and begin with behavioral issues (delusional, paranoia, hallucinating, impulsivity). During the severe stages, the affected person is unable to communicate and is dependent on others for care. Research suggests that environmental lifestyle factors can put people at risk for the disease. New research suggests that a well balanced diet, physical activity, social engagement, and mentally stimulating activities may reduce the risk of cognitive decline and Alzheimer s disease. Treating the disease can be very complex, requiring many interventions. Current approaches in treatment include helping people maintain mental function, managing behavioral symptoms, slowing or delaying the symptoms, and supporting families and caregivers. Alzheimer s disease is often called a family disease, because the chronic stress of watching a loved one slowly declining affects everyone. Medical Adult Day Care is able to provide a journey of care from the center to the participant and the caregivers. The participant can receive care Monday through Saturday 8:00 am to 4:00 pm. Services provided are two nutritious meals and a snack, physical/mental stimulating activities, assistance with ADL s (activities of daily living) and socialization. The caregivers can benefit from respite service and monthly support groups provided by social worker/guest speaker. Computer Tips Ever have trouble finding the symbols to insert in documents, like a registration mark and copyright mark? Here is a shortcut - while holding down the shift key, hit the left parenthesis key, type the letter r, then hit right parenthesis key, hit enter - it changes automatically to. You can also use it for (copyright) by selecting c instead of r. APPS!!! My pet peeve! We ve all heard about them. It s short for Applications or software, most of which nowadays runs on our dumb smart phones. There are literally tens of thousands out there for different Smart phone platforms, like Blackberry, Android, IOS, etc. (I used my computer tip from the first paragraph.) Many are free, some we pay for to do almost anything you want, from tracking our footsteps, getting directions, losing weight, etc. ARE THEY SAFE??? My personal opinion is probably not - try reading the fine print that most of us ignore because we re so excited to get that free App! They can possibly have access to your phone s passwords, contacts, account numbers, etc., especially those so-called free apps. Ask yourself - is that newfangled App really worth it?
