8 Michigan Seniors Guide • Spring 2022Spring 2022 Guide for Senior Housing OptionsIL - Independent Living Independent living is simply any housing arrangement designed exclusively for older adults, generally those aged 55 and over. Housing varies widely, from apartment-style living to single-family detached homes. In general, the housing is friendlier to aging adults, often being more compact, with easier navigation and no maintenance or yard work to worry about. AL - Assisted Living Assisted living is a residential option for older adults who need help with some of the activities of daily living—things like cooking meals, getting to the bathroom in the middle of the night, keeping house, and traveling to appointments. An assisted living facility may be a good choice if you need more personal care services than you can get at home or in an independent living or retirement community. MC - Memory Care Memory care is a form of senior living that provides intensive, specialized care for people with memory issues. Many assisted living facilities and nursing homes have created special memory care units for dementia patients. There are also stand-alone memory care facilities. RC - Respite Care Respite care provides temporary relief for a primary caregiver, enabling you to take a much-needed break from the demands of caregiving. Some senior residential communities offer short-term overnight services. HC - Hospice Care Hospice (and palliative) care offers a dignified and comfortable alternative to spending your final months in the impersonal environment of a hospital, far from family, friends, pets, and all that you know and love. Palliative medicine helps you manage pain while hospice provides special care to improve the quality of life for both you as the patient and your family. We hope you find the 2022 Spring edition of our Senior Housing Guide for Oakland, Macomb and Wayne Counties helpful. The facilities are grouped by county, sorted alphabetically by city and then, by name. Each provides a variety of services and offers a range of amenities. We encourage you to contact them directly to learn more. For your convenience, we have provided a key indicating the type of care available at each facility:

If you’re downsizing soon, these tips should help smooth the process out. Before anything can be moved to your new place, it has to be packed up, and more likely than not, it isn’t all coming with you. Choosing what to ditch and what to keep can be time-consuming and emotionally taxing. That’s why you should start early and small. Set some time aside one day to tackle a drawer or cabinet, then do more each day until you’re packing away the living room. Starting early will save you from the urge to do it quickly later. If you procrastinate too long, the stress will make downsizing into more of a sore spot than it has to be. On the other hand, if you start earlier, there’s more time to go down memory lane, make careful decisions, thoroughly plan for the move, and get others involved in the process. As you’re sifting through your possessions, deciding what to keep and what not to keep, make things a little easier on yourself by not thinking to hard about anything that isn’t in good condition. If something’s cracked, chipped or torn, throw it away. Take this opportunity to start fresh in a new home with things that are ready to be used. Also take this opportunity to thin out the weak links. Anything you’re holding onto because you feel like you have to, or anything you’re keeping just because -- take a picture of it if you must, but there’s never been a better time than now to part ways with this stuff. When you’re offloading your possessions, consider new options that may have come around since the last time you moved, like Facebook Marketplace. Facebook Marketplace makes it pretty easy to find a new home for your odds and ends, but you shouldn’t expect to make a killing selling there. It can be time-consuming, and buyers often aren’t looking to spend very much. Throw away any paperwork that you can access online. Don’t keep any tax records older than three years. Set aside some time to set your account settings to paperless, so that paperwork won’t pile up at your new place, too. Be sure to notify any insurance companies, banks, accountants or lawyers that need to know about your move. After you’re all packed up, give the house a once-over or two, looking for easy ways its value can be increased. Is there any peeling paint? Are the walls scuffed? Do the sinks leak? Some of these things will be worth addressing. Lastly, your downsizing transition is likely going to be one of the most significant pivot points of your life. It isn’t going to be easy. You should talk through your emotions with any loved ones you have involved. Take the time to process your feelings. It can only make your transition to a new home more fulfilling. Things to Know About Downsizing
14 Michigan Seniors Guide • Spring 2022by Justin Cooper As the world starts to wake up from the chill of winter, you shouldn’t miss this chance to do the things you couldn’t while you were inside keeping warm. But as we get older, what we do outside can start to look different. Moving around gets tougher. We don’t have as much energy as we used to have. As the years go by, options for outdoor activities can sometimes dwindle. But let’s say you want to take advantage of the sunshine and warmer weather in your golden years — what do you do? Here are a few options. 1. Go back to your roots Games and activities you enjoyed in your childhood could bring you similar joy now, as long as your body is able and you’re younger at heart. Try throwing a frisbee, flying a kite, drawing with chalk, looking at insects — you may find you still enjoy these things more than you expected. This could also be a good opportunity to get the grandchildren involved. You’ll be able to spend some quality time with them, and they’ll enjoy having you share the activity with them. Take the chance to show them that fun and games don’t have to come to an end when childhood does. 2. Gardening Take advantage of spring’s characteristic blooming flowers and start a garden. One option is to start an indoor garden. It’ll brighten up your living space and give you something to take care of. Depending on what you plant, you’ll be able to enjoy some seasonal cooking, as well. Of course, you could always garden outside if you’ve got the space. If you don’t have the space and still want to hone your green thumb in the sunshine, try finding a nearby community garden. That way, maybe you’ll even make some friends along the way. 3. Visit farmers’ markets You can accomplish several things at once with this one. While stocking up on fresh produce and local ingredients and crafts, you can get outside, visit your neighbors, and support your community. There’s often all kinds of interesting treasures at the farmers’ market. You may run into something you’ve never seen before or a food you’ve never tasted, so if you’re lucky, this could be a chance to see something new. 4. Visit the birds Flowers aren’t the only thing that come back in the spring — the birds start chirping again, too. If you’ve never paid much attention to birds before, now’s your chance. Try setting up a bird feeder outside your house — that way, you might be able to get a closer look at the avians than you would outside, all while staying in the comfort of your own home. Or you could go to the park, drop some bird seed on the ground and wait. Get a pair of binoculars and scan the trees when you hear them chirping. Buy a book or go online to familiarize yourself with the birds in your area, and see how many you can find. Get Out and Enjoy the Spring

After a long career, you’ve earned it. But after a while, it’s important to have something to make progress on, improve at or look forward to. Otherwise, you may start to feel restless, aimless and bored in your retirement instead of free and at ease. Here are some ideas for ways you can spend your retirement that will be fulfilling and enriching. 1. Get on the road Depending on how you spent your pre-retirement years, you may not have been able to get out of your home state very often. Now is the classic time to get out of town and see what you were missing. Some may have the urge to travel the world, but there’s plenty to see and do here in the United States. Not only will the travel be cheaper, but you’ll be able to take home a better sense of the country you actually live in, not a country you’ll only be in for a little while. If you’re 62 or older, you can purchase a lifetime senior pass to over 2,000 recreation sites managed by the National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and four other agencies. An annual senior pass can be purchased for $20.
Michigan Seniors Guide • Spring 2022 172. Get crafty Try joining some sort of crafting group. Knitting, crocheting, model building, woodworking, painting, learning an instrument or any number of other activities can prove to have multiple benefits. For one, you’ll likely be able to find a group that’s doing it, so you’ll be able to stay connected and socialized, making friends along the way. Many such crafts will also keep your fine motor abilities honed and give your brain a little something to chew on. Most of these activities will also leave you with either a finished product at the end that can be used or gifted, or a skill that you can share with others.3. Get healthy When you’re in the rat race, it’s easy to neglect your own body. But with the distraction of a job out of the way, it’s time to treat yourself better. Simple exercises like walks, lifting light weights and stretches are better than nothing. Try standing up from a seated position without using your hands. For balance, try putting the heel of one foot at the toes of the other, hold that position for a while and switch feet. Do things with friends wherever you can. Get daily walking buddies, or go to a group yoga session. With that camaraderie, you’ll be much more likely to make anything you do into a habit. Also take some measures to improve your diet. Fortify your bones with vitamin D and calcium; stave off diabetes with fiber; and lower your blood pressure by ditching salt for other seasonings. Eat your vegetables, or try making a smoothie with them. 4. Volunteer There’s always somebody out there who could use your help. Volunteering can be a good way to make the world a better place while putting yourself through new experiences and meeting other like-minded people. You could volunteer at something like a soup kitchen, feeding the homeless and poor. Contact churches in your area to see what kind of services you can offer to help with. If you have more of an outdoorsy bent or you’re concerned for your environment, environmental groups can often be found doing things like picking up litter and culling invasive plants from parks.

24 Michigan Seniors Guide • Spring 2022Protecting Seniors From ScamsWhat is a scam? A scam is a way to “trick” people out of their money and/or property by convincing them to participate in a fraudulent scheme. How can I avoid being taken? First, be aware of specific scams. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Second, keep your personal information to yourself. Never give out your social security number, bank account information, or other information regarding your accounts. Third, protect your passwords. What are some scams? Bank examiner: A person calls claiming to be a bank investigator. He asks for your cooperation in helping catch an embezzler. You are supposed to help by withdrawing money from your bank account and giving it to him. Pigeon drop: A person approaches you, claiming to have found a large sum of money. He promises to share it if you first give him money to prove your good faith. Pyramid/Ponzi: A salesperson offers you an opportunity to receive money or goods for convincing other people to participate in a sales scheme. Some of these promotions are illegal in Michigan. Phishing: Is an attempt by fraudsters to obtain your user names, passwords, credit card numbers and other confidential information through electronic communications by posing as a legitimate company. Never give out your personal information in response to an email. When in doubt, check it out by calling the company directly. When else may fraud occur? Fraud may occur in any consumer transaction. Be particularly wary of home improvement offers, work-at-home schemes, and the sale of vacation or retirement real estate. PETER J. LUCIDO Macomb County ProsecutorIDENTITY THEFT Warning Signs: • Your purse or wallet is stolen • Your bank account is overdrawn or there is unusual activity on your credit card. • Mail you are expecting doesn’t arrive, especially related to financial matters; bills you paid are still showing due. • You apply for a credit card or loan and are denied. Preventative Steps: • Carry a close-fitting or hidden pouch instead of a purse or carry a wallet in your front pocket. • Reduce the items you carry in public such as extra credit cards, Social Security card, and check book. • Shred, tear into small pieces, or cut up all mail and documents that contain Social Security, bank, and credit card numbers. • Place mail with bills to be paid at the Post Office. Ask that new boxes of checks be held at your bank or credit union rather than mailed to you.MAIL & INTERNET FRAUD Warning Signs: • You play daily sweepstakes because you think you need extra money, holding out hope you will win a big prize someday. • You believe your mail is legitimate because it is delivered by the U.S. Postal Service. • You open and read all of your mail because many pieces look like official government documents or heart-felt solicitations for charity. • You’re getting the same offers through e-mail that you receive through the mail. Preventative Steps: • Even though it may be fun or give you something to do, stop participating in sweepstakes, lottery, and contest offers. • If you were to truly win something, you NEVER have to pay any fees, taxes, or costs of ANY kind before receiving your winnings - that’s the law! • Don’t give into temptation. If you receive a mailing/e-mail that 1) promotes sweepstakes/lotteries, charities, credit repair, work-at-home offers; 2) suggests you can make money by assisting a wealthy person from outside the United States, and 3) requests verification of account numbers throw the envelope away or delete the e-mail without opening it.

For SeniorsMichigan Seniors Guide • Spring 2022 27by Justin Cooper Spring is the classic time for cleaning, but as you grow in age, you may not have the spring in your step to whip the house into shape that you used to have. With these tips, you’ll can get on the right track to still have a clean and shiny living area to head into the warmer months with, despite having less mobility and energy to get it done. The first thing you should do is make a list of places to clean, stuff to organize and tasks to do. That way, you won’t forget anything while you’re cleaning, and you’ll get an idea of how much help you’ll need. Some tasks will be too hard or too dangerous to accomplish by yourself. That’s what grandkids and their parents are for. Invite them over for the hard stuff. You’ll get some family time out of it, and they’ll get some exercise. While they do the heavy lifting, you can busy yourself with something lighter, like organizing paperwork or dusting and cleaning surfaces. Use a cordless vacuum cleaner to avoid a trip hazard, and when possible, use cleaning appliances that don’t require you to bend over or climb a ladder. Extendable dusters and squeegees, a well-fitted broom, and a dust pan with a body-length handle will keep you upright and on the ground. Make sure to clear a path in each room of your living area for you to walk in and out. This will eliminate trip hazards and help you organize. Maybe you’ll end up getting rid of some things you didn’t need anyway. Decluttering your living space will make it more organized, but it will also make it safer, more sanitary and make room for new family pictures. If you haven’t used something in the past year, either throw it away or find a way someone else can have it. While you’re organizing, make sure things are being put in arms reach, where they’ll be easy and safe to grab. Take note of where important paperwork is being filed away. Spring cleaning is the traditional time to replace the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. But it’s also a good time to go through the refrigerator for expired food, and also a good time to go through the medicine cabinet. Throw away expired medications and those you no longer need — that will keep you (and everyone else) from taking something they shouldn’t. Some medication is an environmental hazard when it is improperly disposed of, so if you aren’t sure, call your city or a medical professional for advice. While you’re doing all of this, take note of ways your living space can be made safer. Do you need handles in the shower? Do you need to convert your bathtub to a shower? Are there any rugs that are posing a trip hazard? Bounce these ideas off any family members you have helping you. They may be able to help you with a remedy, or help you arrange for one.

A new pop culture trivia game is taking Boomers on a nostalgic road trip back to the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s. Designed to be played by two teams, Boom Again features thousands of questions drawing upon Boomer’s memories of advertising slogans and jingles, politics and social movements, movies, music, television, and more. Groups of Baby Boomers are laughing their way through memories on a wide variety of their experiences: from The Twist to Disco; American Bandstand to Soul Train; Doris Day all the way to Janis Joplin, and on to Steve Martin; Hula Hoops to The Pill; and poodle skirts to mini-skirts. And they are singing their way through all the music of their youth, too. This game is clearly not an S.A.T. test with questions like: • Name three of the most popular episodes of “I Love Lucy.” • Name the original main courses from Swanson’s TV Dinners. • What did Silly Putty have to do with the Sunday comic strips? The wide array of material is organized into easily remembered categories: Things We Heard—Music, jingles, famous speeches, lyrics, catchphrases Things We Saw—TV shows, movies, commercials, magazines, sporting events Things We Learned in School—The “3 R’s,” clubs, dances, school yard games In The News—Politics, sports, world events, Sunday comics, murder, war Stuff We Learned On the Street—Toys, Fashion, Cars, Social Movements, Dances, etc. A Box Full of Memories The game comes packaged in a “cigar box” familiar to Baby Boomers who stashed their stuff in those as kids. It has two boxes of cards with 2,244 questions, and Boomer era tokens including a Metal Skate Key, a “Students For Kennedy” Button, a center insert for a 45-RPM Record, and more. There’s even a “Boomers’ Little Helper” magnifier in case someone forgets their readers. An Antidote to Pandemic Isolation Apparently nothing can keep a social Baby Boomer from hanging out with their friends. Party games have always brought people together. Now, even when friends and families haven’t been together in person, they have been playing Boom Again together on Zoom. It’s become known as a Boom Zoom!
