magnifying glasses pencil grippers assistive hearing devices and other aids They may also as Wilton Library does have handicapped access entry doors a wheelchair a motorized scooter and special computers and devices such as an Optelec Reader to help Book clubs and reading programs bring people together and are one way that libraries transition from being places with lots of books to also being community centers Westport Library served 47 such clubs in fiscal year 2013 2014 Library sponsored presentations and workshops expand outward from the world of books to cover such topics as entrepreneurship finance science job seeking and much much more Often topics of special interest to seniors such as Social Security and Medicare rules and regulations are addressed Words that go from the page to performance are also featured in today s libraries not only through collections of movie and music DVDs and CDs for circulation but also in live productions in the libraries or on their grounds Libraries take care to include classic and representative works from many different periods and genres in their collections so if you re interested in that Bogart flick that you haven t been able to catch on TV or that Sinatra tune that radio doesn t play your local library may have them Libraries relate to the visual arts as well as to the verbal ones and usually have exhibits of or special programs on painting photography A D MI T ON E Libraries continued PASS 10 and other varieties of art and craft work To give an idea of how active libraries may be in their various programming

public or private events that those folks might wish to organize themselves Such events might include weddings parties meetings workshops corporate functions dance classes receptions and many many more Pequot Library s Auditorium for example is a fine venue that seats 220 people and has near perfect acoustics Three historic Reading Rooms hold up to 50 people each Pequot s Great Lawn MUSEUM PASSES In addition to inviting folks to use their spaces libraries also help make it easier to visit some of the great museums and cultural and historic sites in the area from New York City to Boston How is this done As Darien Library puts it As part of our continuous dedication to enriching the lives of our patrons we are pleased to provide a variety of museum passes that will engage excite and inform you in a cultural learning experience Fairfield Library offers 48 of these passes ranging from ones for the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art in Ridgefield to ones for the Intrepid Sea Air Space Museum in New York City to ones for the White Memorial Conservation Center and Nature Center in Litchfield is a beautiful open space with wellmaintained plantings and is suitable for informal events such as an Easter Egg Roll Their many programs and services help make libraries the cherished spaces mentioned at the beginning of this article In a more general sense libraries as IMLS says provide a safe comfortable and inviting setting at which older members of the community are treated with respect And libraries recognize that many seniors want to share their experience and expertise and give back So they provide volunteering and mentoring opportunities to this end Such intergenerational programs help make a library what Bridgeport Library calls A Gathering Place for the Entire Community Lifelong learning centers In a sense libraries have a dual role While they safeguard our cultural heritage they also are on the cutting edge of societal evolution in a number of ways Many of these ways positively impact senior citizens As 11 Marybeth Zeman writes In some communities libraries are creating new relationships with older adults by re branding themselves as lifelong learning centers as well as establishing themselves as vibrant community centers where older adults can engage in and interact with each other One of the most important areas in which libraries are lifelong learning centers is through the public access that they provide to computers and the training that they offer in their use In 2010 IMLS reported that Internet access is now one of the most sought after public library services and it is used by nearly half of all visitors Some 30 of public library Internet users IMLS said are over the age of 54 and overall two thirds of people who used library computers receive help from library staff or volunteers on computer or wireless network issues IMLS summed up libraries role in the digital age in this way The widespread use of these services by people of varying age income and experience is an indication of the unique role that public libraries play in the evolving digital landscape Public libraries stand out as one of the few community institutions that can address the computing and information needs of all kinds of users from seniors who have never touched a keyboard to young entrepreneurs launching a new eBusiness strategy And a patron of the Greenwich Library summed up the feelings of many seniors there and at other libraries by saying The tech courses you have been hosting are wonderful for their usefulness and clarity And another patron summed up the overall response of many seniors to libraries by saying Now that I am retired I find my favorite haunt is at the Library It is so friendly and has warmth N All

12 13 Values based estate planning Max Feinberg s will provided an interest in a trust for each of his grandchildren However any grandchild who married outside the Jewish faith would be considered to have died and the interest would be void unless the spouse converted to Judaism within a year of the marriage Such a provision can present many difficult questions For example who is Jewish What if there is a divorce and remarriage with the result that the satisfaction of the condition changes Courts are not comfortable with will or trust provisions that pose restraints on marriage but they have been enforced by James B Gust Senior Editor Merrill Anderson Company A s they have in so many other areas the babyboomers are bringing new ideas into estate planning Where once one s primary beneficiaries were likely to be a surviving spouse and minor children boomers are likely to have adult children grandchildren and even great grandchildren to consider in their wills death an approach referred to by some as an ethical will The letter might recount important life lessons and outline the sort of life that one expects and hopes for one s heirs Where once estate and inheritance taxes drove many planning decisions the significant increase in tax exemptions from federal estate taxes in recent years is giving more flexibility to estate planners Except in the state of Louisiana children in the U S do not have a right to an inheritance Because they can be disinherited conditions can be imposed on the inheritances that they do receive A trust can be used to formalize the conditions and provide the mechanism for fulfilling the legacy Distributions may be limited to trust income only for example until the beneficiary Many people would like to pass along their values to their heirs not just their money and property One way to fulfill this desire would be to draft a letter to be read after one s Another approach might be to create an inheritance with strings attached Attached strings In the Feinberg case Max s wife exercised a power of appointment over the trust that he created Instead of an interest in a trust the grandchildren each would get an outright

illustrates the dilemma TRUSTS IN YOUR WILL A great variety of financial protection strategies may be implemented with careful trust planning Among the choices to evaluate Marital trusts Credit shelter trust Support trust Several options are available to provide lifetime asset management and financial protection for a surviving spouse A married couple may expand the benefits of federal estate tax exemptions with this trust For an adult child who needs a permanent source of financial support with the trust principal protected from the claims of creditors a support trust may provide a solution The beneficiary s interest is limited to so much of the income as is needed for his or her support education and maintenance Discretionary trust Eliovson Tenore because experience matters The trustee has sole discretion over what to do with the income and principal just as the grantor does before the trust is created The beneficiary has no interest in the trust that can be pledged or transferred When there are multiple beneficiaries the trustee may weigh the needs of each in deciding how much trust income to distribute or reinvest when to make principal distributions and who should receive them The trust document often will include guidelines on such matters Spendthrift trust The beneficiary is forbidden to transfer any financial interest that he or she has in the trust and may not compel distributions Gifts to minors trust For young children Contributions of up to 14 000 per year to this sort of trust will avoid gift taxes A married couple together may set aside 28 000 each year for each child or grandchild so in a few years a significant source of capital may be built up Assets may be used for any purpose including education funding and will be counted as the child s assets for financial aid purposes The assets of a gifts to minors trust must be made fully available to the child when he or she reaches age 21 However the child may be given the option of

12 13 Values based estate planning Max Feinberg s will provided an interest in a trust for each of his grandchildren However any grandchild who married outside the Jewish faith would be considered to have died and the interest would be void unless the spouse converted to Judaism within a year of the marriage Such a provision can present many difficult questions For example who is Jewish What if there is a divorce and remarriage with the result that the satisfaction of the condition changes Courts are not comfortable with will or trust provisions that pose restraints on marriage but they have been enforced by James B Gust Senior Editor Merrill Anderson Company A s they have in so many other areas the babyboomers are bringing new ideas into estate planning Where once one s primary beneficiaries were likely to be a surviving spouse and minor children boomers are likely to have adult children grandchildren and even great grandchildren to consider in their wills death an approach referred to by some as an ethical will The letter might recount important life lessons and outline the sort of life that one expects and hopes for one s heirs Where once estate and inheritance taxes drove many planning decisions the significant increase in tax exemptions from federal estate taxes in recent years is giving more flexibility to estate planners Except in the state of Louisiana children in the U S do not have a right to an inheritance Because they can be disinherited conditions can be imposed on the inheritances that they do receive A trust can be used to formalize the conditions and provide the mechanism for fulfilling the legacy Distributions may be limited to trust income only for example until the beneficiary Many people would like to pass along their values to their heirs not just their money and property One way to fulfill this desire would be to draft a letter to be read after one s Another approach might be to create an inheritance with strings attached Attached strings In the Feinberg case Max s wife exercised a power of appointment over the trust that he created Instead of an interest in a trust the grandchildren each would get an outright distribution at her death of 250 000 However she included a reference to Max s restriction so that only those grandchildren who had married Jews would qualify Only one of the five grandchildren met the condition The disappointed grandchildren sued for their inheritance After early victories in the lower courts they lost in the Illinois Supreme Court The Feinberg grandparents were within their

24 COMPASS CARE A Sensible Path Forward for Older Adults and Their Families by Peter J O Connell Editorial and Research Associate Several years back I was having lunch with my friend Jane who mentioned that she was concerned about her older parents who were living on their own They had been doing OK but Jane knew that at some point they would need assistance so she wanted to proactively put together a plan for their future rather than simply waiting for something to happen Jane s parents were always very active and had a variety of interests so one of her goals was to help them maintain the quality of life that they enjoy She also recognized that she needed help organizing her parents finances and putting in place the medical directives they each wanted She asked if I knew of one source that could help her with all of these things and also be able to provide qualified well trained caregivers for a time when her parents will need them I responded that I didn t and added that those would be tall orders to meet let alone from just one source If Jane asked me the same question today however I would suggest that she speak with the people at Compass Care based in Fairfield County Connecticut Cofounded by Mark Lachs M D Professor of Medicine at Weill Cornell Medical College and Director of Geriatrics at New York Presbyterian Healthcare System Compass Care

research Dr Lachs and cofounder Karl Pillemer Ph D Professor of Gerontology at Cornell University s School of Human Ecology and Weill Cornell Medical College have developed proprietary techniques and processes that make it possible for seniors not only to maintain but also to enhance the quality of their lives The Compass Care approach begins by having seniors and their families think through and discuss the future that they envision and the steps they need to take to bring it about That facilitated discussion culminates in the development of what Compass Care calls its 360 Degree Assessment and Plan for Successful Aging requirement exceeds state standards In addition to Red Cross First Aid and CPR certification Compass Care s caregivers are trained regarding chronic diseases that many of its clients face including Alzheimer s dementia and in palliative end of life care Compass Care offers industryleading pay and benefits to attract the best among caregivers And of course all
