A R T I C L E:

Aging in place shouldn't be a mystery. Ten years ago, dynamic female entrepreneur Lana Wilde started her business in the basement of the family home with one client, one caregiver, and a commitment to meet the needs of families who take care of their loved ones in times of extended illness.

Today, Wilde's family-to-family service based business celebrates a decade of excellence. Mountain Home Care is a recognized leader in private home care and geriatric care management throughout western North Carolina.

Wilde's journey to overcome the challenges of understanding and meeting the challenges of an increasingly aging population suggests a hard truth: doctors and medical professionals truly may not understand what to do with individuals with an extended life expectancy. A 100 year active life expectancy is no longer uncommon. Keeping persons safe and at home as they age is a quality of life concern.

"We've now come to the point that we have to figure out what we're going to do," she says.

Family Matters:

The first questions families have to answer is 'what is aging all about?' says Wilde. Multiple factors come into play when formulating an answer: social factors, health, family, insurance, and others.

"I have a working knowledge of all those areas so I can help my clients figure out what is needed," she says. "Families often don't have a clue because they haven't been there before, they live across the country. They ask, 'what do we do about it?'"

During past generations, family members lived in close proximity to one another, and multiple generations cared for one another, but that's not true today.

"Our niche is trying to safely help folks stay where they want to be, which is usually at home," she says.

Wilde tries to be a one-stop resource to families who reach out to her for help. If Mountain Home Care is not the right fit, she refers them to someone who can better assist them and get them the help they need.

Her investment is in people, and people make up families a lot like her own.

Invest in People:

"The Wilde family is a bunch of 'wild' entrepreneurs," she says, making a pun of the family surname. For entrepreneurs who would like to be in service to others through their business, she offers a few guiding principles that have served her in good stead since 2003.

"We are just regular people. We always work hard, but we like being our own bosses," Wilde says.

Here are six lessons learned over a decade of trial and error:

1. Research, Research, Research.
"Try to understand what you're getting into," Wilde suggests for would-be entrepreneurs. "While the business sounds so exciting and fun, it can be a lot of work and there's potential for a lot of disappointment. Things don't always work out, and sometimes, I can't fix them."

2. Be willing to invest in people.
Wilde loves mentoring and helping others find themselves. One young woman, she says, has an amazing work ethic and is sometimes overly conscientious. "I just wrap my arms around her and make sure she has the support she needs." In this case, Wilde shifted the employee's work schedule to accommodate her university education, then encouraged her when a perfect career opportunity arose elsewhere. "I hated to let her go, but have kept that relationship, and that's a success story for us. We love doing that kind of thing."

3. Delegate responsibility to good people.
Mountain Home Care likes to employ "go-to" people in the industry, those who are respected professionals with a caring manner. "I've never based anything I do on numbers. It's on service, reputation, and employing the go-to people in the industry." She sees her professional staff of clinicians as leaders who help her know how to lead.

4. Interface with existing services to complement your distinctive business.
Home care and geriatric care management work well with hospice and palliative care, and often round out a patient's care team. "We don't do what they do," she says.

5. Show up for the work.
"We owe our success to hard work, blood, sweat, and tears," says Wilde. "People like doing business with a company that's locally owned and operated, and where family is involved on a daily basis. We're not absentee owners."

6. Be clear about your mission.

As always, the Mountain Home Care goal is to be top of mind as the preferred in home care and geriatric care agency in all of western North Carolina, Wilde says. "To do that, we plan to stay fair and honest, continue growing, providing employment, and servicing a population who needs and appreciates what we do."

Mountain Home Care - www.mountainhomecare.com - is located in Arden, N.C., and serves home and geriatric care clients throughout western North Carolina.

TAX ALERT: Federal/State Incentives Can Make Long-Term Care Insurance More Attractive

Author: LTC Financial Partners, LLC
Dateline: Kirkland, Washington (KIRKLAND, Wash.)  | Wed, 13 Mar 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Tax time may be a good time to move your decision about long-term care insurance to the front burner, because the premiums of many policyholders may be subsidized by tax deductions or credits. So says Denise Gott, National Sales Manager of LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), one of America's most experienced long-term care insurance agencies.”



A R T I C L E:

Tax time may be a good time to move your decision about long-term care insurance to the front burner, because the premiums of many policyholders may be subsidized by tax deductions or credits. So says Denise Gott, National Sales Manager of LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), one of America's most experienced long-term care insurance agencies.

For the 2013 tax year, federal tax deduction limits range from $360 to $4,550, depending on age. "So if you get a policy now, you could start the subsidy ball rolling for years to come," says Gott.

Over the lifetime of many policies, "Cumulative deduction claims can amount to several thousand, even more than $100,000," says Gott.

Already have long-term care insurance? Remember to make your claim on this year's return, due April 15. For the 2012 tax year, the deduction limits range from $350 to $4,370, depending on age.

The states are getting into the subsidy act too. Already more than half offer additional incentives for owning LTC insurance. These usually take the form of state tax deductions or rebates. "Check with your local LTC insurance specialist for policy options and any incentives available in your area," says Gott.

LTCFP does not offer tax advice but teams with accountants and other tax experts to help their clients get all the deductions or other benefits available to them.

Janet Bull, Award-winning Chief Medical Officer of Four Seasons Hospice, Shares Quality of Life Concerns, Answers

Author: Four Seasons Compassion for Life
Dateline: Flat Rock, North Carolina (FLAT ROCK, N.C.)  | Tue, 05 Mar 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “When Janet Bull, Ph.D., the award-winning chief medical officer of Four Seasons Hospice goes to work, it's more than showing up for a job. She helps people find meaning. Palliative care, which occurs before end of life is at hand, comes at the vulnerable time when a person who may have chronic multiple illnesses admits they need support to maintain their quality of life.”



A R T I C L E:

When Janet Bull, Ph.D., the award-winning chief medical officer of Four Seasons Hospice goes to work, it's more than showing up for a job. She helps people find meaning. Palliative care, which occurs before end of life is at hand, comes at the vulnerable time when a person who may have chronic multiple illnesses admits they need support to maintain their quality of life.

Patients and their families need help and guidance finding their way through the maze of a complicated medical system, and reconciling their hopes for recovery with the reality of the limitations of treatments.

"My team and I guide people, collaborate to ensure their quality of life. We provide psychological and spiritual support in a way not normally seen in the medical field. Good palliative care addresses the mind, the body and the spirit," says Bull.

The search for meaning starts with an individual's life review.

"Who the person is, what is meaningful to them now, what has been meaningful to them in their lives is important. We put it into perspective for them, help them realize the impact they've had in this world."

Understanding Quality of Life:

When patients really understand treatment options, says Bull, they tend to choose approaches which stress comfort. When one considers that 90 percent of people would prefer to die at home, but more than 50 percent die in hospitals and nursing homes, with other people taking care of them, the disparity may seem disheartening. But when they have palliative and hospice care, their life expectancy and quality of life is increased with certain diseases.

Physicians like Bull apply research which strives to understand the benefits to people at end of life, and works to improve symptoms. Sometimes, patients who previously felt powerless may choose to give back to others who share their illness, or create a legacy, through participating in clinical trials.

What should someone do if they or a family member begins to have issues with quality of life?

Bull shares six strategies for getting the support you need:

1. Reach out for support.
Palliative care is a service individuals need to reach out to receive, says Bull. They should be proactive and ask for the services, as their personal physician may or may not suggest it.

2. Make sure there's a social worker on the team.
A social worker can counsel the family and individual as they cope with an impending loss, navigate insurance and Medicaid benefits, arrange for services like Meals on Wheels, and help get advance directives in place.

3. Palliative care involves a team of support.
Often, the social worker joins a chaplain, counselors, or other team members who address an array of patient issues from spirituality, care-giver support, alignment with available resources, or other needs. A physician, physician's assistant, a nurse practitioner, and other non-physician providers may also be part of the team. CNAs are a critical part of the team, along with volunteers and music therapists.

4. Understand the difference between hospice and palliative care.
Palliative care can be offered to any patient with a serious illness, regardless of life expectancy. Concurrent medical care is given at the same time symptoms are aggressively managed. With hospice care one needs to have a life expectancy of 6 months or less. Both provide team based patient centered care with the focus on improving quality of life

5. Expect good communication as the norm.
Good communication with the team is a must. Family meetings or conferences with everyone invited are a positive signal that the team is working well on behalf of the patient. Questions should be encouraged, along with talk about what's likely to come.

6. Trust the team.
Well-managed, aggressive symptom management along with good collaboration between medical professionals are hallmarks of a trustworthy team. As it's not uncommon for some patients to have five or more specialists, the team approach makes certain the information is collated and presented to the family across care settings, and that different specialists are on the same page with medications and treatment options.

Too often, says Bull, when patients return home after a visit to the hospital, problems can occur. Medical reconciliation is a huge problem - patients often don't understand instructions on medication changes or have difficulty obtaining new meds. Often there is no primary care physician to follow up with, or a host of other issues such as transportation, clear follow up instructions, or difficulty getting in to see their physician.

"When you're very sick, you often don't remember what you're told," says Bull. "Mistakes happen for lots of reasons when people go home."

As a result, many people end up back in the hospital after a very short period of time. For those that get discharged to other settings, there is often a misunderstanding of goals of care.

At Four Seasons, the palliative team follows patients wherever they go. Many will be discharged to a nursing home, or assisted living facility. Having a team that provides continuity across patient settings is of great value in making sure patients get excellent care, consistent with their goals.

Janet Bull, M.D., is chief medical officer at Four Seasons Hospice Compassion for Life, which is a state leader in hospice and palliative care, serving individuals across western North Carolina. She is the 2013 recipient of the Josefina B. Magno Distinguished Hospice Physician Award by the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, which recognize quality services and innovative programs and exemplary dedication to the practice of palliative medicine in a hospice setting.

Mountain Home Care Celebrates 10 Year Record of Service, Commitment to Home and Geriatric Care

Author: Mountain Home Care
Dateline: Arden, North Carolina (ARDEN, N.C.)  | Tue, 26 Feb 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “When self-described worker bee Lana Wilde became an empty nester, she turned her open heart and gift for volunteer care giving into a one-of-a-kind family business. Ten years later, Mountain Home Care celebrates a decade of quality care offered in service to other western North Carolina families who need a helping hand during an extended illness.”



A R T I C L E:

When self-described "worker bee" Lana Wilde became an empty nester, she turned her open heart and gift for volunteer care giving into a one-of-a-kind family business. Ten years later, Mountain Home Care celebrates a decade of quality care offered in service to other western North Carolina families who need a helping hand during an extended illness.

Mountain Home Care remains a recognized leader in private home care and geriatric care management since it was founded in 2003.

Wilde still remembers the phone call from her husband Jim Wilde, then an executive with long-time Weaverville corporation SonaPress, now Arvado. Traveling on business, he read an article about the fastest growing home businesses. One of those growth areas, non-medical senior home care, described his wife "to a T."

"It had Lana written all over it," she recalls him saying excitedly.

That moment seemed a really long way from 1999 and that empty nest "and nothing that's mine to do," recalls Wilde. Always a person who takes care of folks, she would reach out to older, infirm individuals, making them chicken soup or taking them to the doctor. As her parents were aging, they began to have major issues. By 2000 she was caring for her father, and in 2001, she became his advocate in his medical care. After he passed away, leaving her mother by herself in Charleston, road trips became increasingly frequent - sometimes just to have a prescription refilled.

She began to think about hiring someone to help with her mother's care. Not the important things, but the everyday routines. When the family couldn't find what they needed, her mother went to live with her sister. That was 2003. At the same time, Jim's mother came to live in their home. Her brother also had his mother in law living in his home.

"We have it in our blood," she says.

Convinced her family was not alone, Lana left her job as a corporate recruiter and started her business in the basement of the family home with one client and one caregiver, and "grandma" in the mother-in-law suite. She invested in training from The Senior's Choice, a turnkey business model, which offered her the foundation and infrastructure she knew she would need, a decision she's never had reason to regret. The Articles of Incorporation were filed on April 17, 2003.

From there, she and her son, Jeremy, who left his corporate job in sales and marketing to help build the business, worked every aspect from the ground up. They did visits, intake, and payroll. They sat with clients in the middle of the night, replaced absent employees. They asked a lot of questions, and learned by doing. By 2009, their efforts were rewarded when Mountain Home Care became one of the first companies to acquire licensure in the home care field from the state of North Carolina following a two-year moratorium.

Ten years later, Wilde misses the daily client contact, just being there, holding hands, providing a soothing presence. But she's grateful for the success that's the product of hard work, blood, sweat and tears. Hers is truly a family business, where family reaches out to family on a daily basis, and clients get what they need. Often, the Mountain Home Care team supplements palliative or hospice care, providing a heightened level of personal assistance on the client's team.

"We are what you get," she says, "we take care of the things other care providers don't."

Mountain Home Care - www.mountainhomecare.com - is located in Arden, N.C., and serves home and geriatric care clients throughout western North Carolina.

Leading Long-Term Care Insurance Agency Broadens Scope, Offering Group Plans for Worksites and Expanded Options for Consumers

Author: LTC Financial Partners, LLC
Dateline: Kirkland, Washington State (KIRKLAND, Wash.)  | Wed, 13 Feb 2013

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Until recently, long-term care (LTC) financing has been offered to Americans primarily in the home; and the means of financing has been limited to LTC insurance, for the most part. That's no longer so with LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), one of America's largest and most experienced LTCi agencies.”



A R T I C L E:

Until recently, long-term care (LTC) financing has been offered to Americans primarily in the home; and the means of financing has been limited to LTC insurance (LTCi), for the most part. That's no longer so with LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP), one of America's largest and most experienced LTCi agencies.

The company is expanding aggressively into the worksite market by forming alliances with employee benefit brokers. And in the consumer market, LTCFP now offers alternative products to support plan design -- products such as annuities, reverse mortgages, and life insurance with LTC riders.

The company is, in effect, increasing the size of its "store" and the breadth of its selection. The move, perhaps a bellwether for the industry, solves two big problems for millions of longer-living Americans.

First, LTC insurance has been much less available than regular health insurance, since only the latter is widely available as an employee benefit. "With our partners, we're starting to change that," says Cameron Truesdell, CEO of LTCFP. "We're out to make LTC protection a common benefit choice, just like medical or dental."

Second, long-term care insurance isn't right for everyone, and not all can meet the health requirements. "Millions are left out," says Truesdell. "So we're becoming a one-stop shop with something for everyone."

Truesdell points out that good health is not a requirement for reverse mortgages, which can be a tax-favored source of cash to pay for care. So can life insurance policies with long-term care riders, he says. And for people wealthy enough to self-insure, annuities can be a vital part of estate planning, with funds earmarked for care, if needed, or for other uses.

LTCFP's reverse mortgage, annuity, and life insurance businesses are in their infancy but growing rapidly. Ditto for the worksite business, according to Truesdell. "By the end of 2013, we expect over half our volume to come from employee benefit programs."

LTCFP specialists are available to answer questions about LTC financing for individuals or employee groups. In addition, they can advise on payment alternatives including reverse mortgages, annuities, and life policies with LTC riders.

LTC Financial Partners - http://www.ltcfp.com - is actively recruiting new specialists. "We don't have enough people to maximize the opportunities," Truesdell says.

A R T I C L E:

Today LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP) announces an alliance with Alternatives for Seniors, the leading senior housing and services online directory.

Alternatives for Seniors will offer information for comparing and choosing among senior living facilities, nursing centers, and home care services, and will facilitate contact with the appropriate communities/services as needed.

LTCFP will offer help in planning for long-term care though long-term care insurance and alternative instruments such as reverse mortgages, annuities, and life policies with LTC riders.

A Gift That ‘Gives Back’ to Aging Parents: Long-Term Care Insurance

Author: LTC Financial Partners, LLC
Dateline: Kirkland, Washington State (KIRKLAND, Wash.)  | Wed, 12 Dec 2012

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Why are some middle-aged Americans buying long-term care insurance (LTCi) for their aging parents? It's partly because Mom and Dad may need help with the tasks of daily living, but can't afford a policy to pay for it, according to Denise Gott, National Sales Manager of LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP).”



A R T I C L E:

Why are some middle-aged Americans buying long-term care insurance (LTCi) for their aging parents? It's partly because Mom and Dad may need help with the tasks of daily living, but can't afford a policy to pay for it, according to Denise Gott, National Sales Manager of LTC Financial Partners, LLC (LTCFP).

It's also because the kids don't want to end up paying the bills out of savings, jeopardizing their own retirement, or to disrupt their lives to tend to Mom or Dad personally.

There's a deeper motivation for the gift of LTCi, though. "The grown kids want to give back to those who gave them so much," says Gott. "This was pointed out by one of our senior specialists, Paula Taylor of Oakland, CA." According to Taylor and Gott, the grateful children express their feeling in many deeply-felt ways.

For example:

* "My father put me through school, and I will take care of him now so he can spend his remaining years at home."

* "Mom taught me so much, how to play the guitar and read before other kids knew how. Dad taught me to raise and pluck chickens, shoot a gun safely, and own up to my mistakes. They never neglected me, and I'm not going to neglect them now."

* "She changed my diapers, bandaged my fingers, kissed my bruises. I'm going to make sure she's cared for too."

* "They gave me the gift of life and everything that followed. I can give them a policy."

For reasons of your own, the gift of long-term care might be worth considering whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, or another end-of-year holiday. But, "it may be an invaluable gift any time of year," says Gott.

New Concept in Retirement Planning Announced by Omni Publishing Co.

Author: Omni Publishing Company
Dateline: Boston, Massachusetts (BOSTON, Mass.)  | Tue, 23 Oct 2012

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “Omni Publishing Co. announces the launch of a new concept in retirement planning with a Dec. 4, 2012, seminar designed to address the non-financial, soft-side of retirement. Attendees to the seminar 'Building Your Emotional Pension' will be presented with the planning tools that will enable them to map out a retirement that works.”



A R T I C L E:

Omni Publishing Co. announces the launch of a new concept in retirement planning with a Dec. 4, 2012, seminar designed to address the non-financial, soft-side of retirement. Attendees to the seminar "Building Your Emotional Pension" will be presented with the planning tools that will enable them to map out a retirement that works.

According to Publisher Henry Quinlan, most retirement planning focuses strictly on financial planning, with little attention devoted to the soft side of retirement. This is an unbalanced approach that often leaves the retiree befuddled by emotional issues that arise that money cannot address.

In preparing for retirement, many often overlook the opportunity to build a new rewarding life for possibly the next 25 to 30 years. Paying attention to the so-called soft side of retirement asks you to consider - what will your day-to-day life look like? This is the threshold question.

For example, new issues often arise in retirement for married couples. Anticipating these types of challenges and planning how to handle them will minimize any negative impact for most married couples.

Introspection and planning help soon-to-be retirees avoid the potential dangers that exist in having empty and unrewarding days, which can lead to depression and alcohol and/or drug abuse.

Seminar attendees will leave with the tools to make a flexible retirement plan that works, starting them on a new stage of life that will bring its own rewards and satisfactions.

Building Your Emotional Pension offers the following:

* Tools to fill the newly acquired 200 hours a month of free time with activities that are rewarding and self-satisfying.

* An understanding of the issues that may arise for individuals and partners in a marriage, and how to respond to them in a manner that will enhance retirement.

* A look at how issues of anxiety and identity-shift emerge for almost everyone at retirement - and how they should be confronted, not ignored.

In addition to Publisher Quinlan, seminar experts include James Ring, retired from the FBI; Judy Beatrice, professional trainer/coach; Dr. Sherry Johnson, certified nurse psychotherapist; and Joe Dionne, retired librarian/business manager, and self-described angry old man.

The seminar will take place on Dec. 4, 2012, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Conference Center at Bentley University, Waltham, Mass. Visit http://www.emotionalpension.com/ for details and registration.
