Gift Ideas That Will Get A Couch Potato Moving

Is this the year that your friend/spouse/parent will finally get moving? That is, exercise regularly for good health and an even better disposition? I have some good ideas that just might inspire the most inert counch potato. It's worth a try.  

 Who wouldn't love one-on-one time with a Personal Trainer?

  • Sibyl Adams, is an experienced personal trainer whose fitness blog appears on this website. Sibyl is certified by the National Council on Strength and Fitness (NCSF. Her devoted clients live throughout Miami-Dade County.
  • Another certified Fitness Trainer we highly recommend in the South Miami-Dade area is Tanis Lopez. Tanis will work with you either at your home or at the Pinecrest Fitness Center.
  • Kerry Eve runs  Eves Up and At'em. She trains in the Deerfield Beach area of Broward County and specializes in working with seniors. 

Can't find a personal trainer for you or a parent in your area? To find one that is certified to train older adults visit The American Council on Exercise website where you'll be able to search by zipcode of reside to find one near your loved one. 

Have You Checked Out Your Local Community Center?

  • A membership makes a wonderful holiday gift since it offers access to so many great fitness classes and events. It's also a great way to meet people.

For those who prefer a "non-traditional" workout:

  • Judd Zisquit, is a wellness coach and T'ai Chi Instructor specializing in seniors and those with limited mobility. You can find him teaching T'ai Chi at various senior living facilities in South Florida and he also offers private, individualized T'ai Chi classes in your home. Check out his website where you can learn more about him and all the wonderful things he does.
  • How about a gift of yoga classes?  Lara Figuero, a certified yoga instructor.  She offers classes at the church on Key Biscayne or you can arrange for a private session in your own home. An added bonus: She's also a licensed massage therapist and does deep tissue, Swedish, and Reiki massage with Aromatherapy. Check out her listing in our directory. You can find a yoga studio near you, regardless of where you or your parent live, by clicking here to view a national directory.
  • Consider introducing your friend or relative to Pilates, which focuses on strengthening the core (large) muscles, and improving balance, posture and flexibility. The Polestar Physical Therapy and Pilates Center in Miami offers a wide range of classes for every level of proficiency and because they take a holistic approach by adding physical and massage therapy to the mix. Purchasing a gift of sessions here would be an especially good fit for someone who is recovering from an injury. 

And for those who prefer to go it alone......

A group class isn't everyone's cup of tea, so here are some ideas for the individualist on your holiday gift list this year:

  • A cushioned exercise mat to make exercising more comfortable.  (It can even double as a pool float!)
  • Fill a basket with a Yoga DVD, a mat, a towel and an inspiring message. Ditto for any of the other do-at-home DVDs.
  • For those avid walkers (and shouldn’t we all try for 10,000 steps a day?), a package with a pedometer, water bottle, fitness journal and watch will put them on the right path (tuck in a gift certificate for sneakers for an extra special treat).
  • Don't Leave Home Without ItThe Road ID is a must have for anyone who leaves home for fitness; whether it's to walk, jog, bike or go to the local fitness center.  This small ID tage has enough space to keep emergency contact information, your address, even your blood type. 
  • The Fitbit One is a clever gadget that tracks how many steps you take, the calories you burn and the stairs you climb. It can even monitor your sleep. It's easy to use--- simply attach it to your clothes.  An added bonus is that it syncs to computers and some smartphones. You can purchase it on the company's website  or on Amazon.
  • Now your loved one can even excercise while reading the newspaper or watching TV with a Mini Bike Exerciser. This table or floor model can be used for your arms and legs will help with muscle strength and circulation. 
  • One of my favorites is the Eggsercizers, ergonomically shaped and designed "eggs" that fit the contours of your hand. They're perfect for hand and arm muscles.  They can be used hot or cold. 

Here's a list of websites that will make shopping for fitness gifts easier.  Enjoy!

My Favorite Holiday Gift Ideas For Seniors

Tis already the season -- and our older family members are always the most difficult to buy presents for. Though many insist that the only gift they'd like is quality time with their children and grandchildren, it's really nice to bring along a Holiday gift. Whether you purchase a big gift, or a small one, you want it to be something that's perfect for them. 

Here are some ideas for thoughtful gifts, most of which you can purchase online to make holiday shopping easier than ever.

  • eReaders and Tablets:  With so many new tablet options, it's hard to know which ones to buy so these guides to eReaders and tablets will help you find the best one for your parent (or you).  Despite the higher price tag, I think tablets, such as the IPAD, are a great choice seniors because they offer more functionality with apps such as Skype and FaceTime (iPad only) you can hold face-to-face conversations regardless of where you are.  This year, AARP introduced their own tablet with oversized text and icons that's available exclusively at Walmart. This is a great gift for those who live far from their grandchildren.
  • Photo Books: A gift of wonderful memories is always at the top of my holiday gift list. Creating one has become so simple and intuitive on websites such as  Picaboo, Shutterfly, and even Apple's iPhoto.  Pharmacy chains like Walgreens and CVS have online photo websites where you can make "brag" books, posters, calendars and other photo gifts for pick up at a store near where you live. 

  • For The Chef and Those Who Love to Putter Around in the Kitchen: There are so many fabulous gadgets that make cooking easier and safer for our loved ones.  For example, the digital measuring cup from Taylor helps you to accurately measure anything, liquid or dry.  And now, breakfast can be prepared in just a few minutes with this toaster and egg poacher from TEM.  A temperature controlled faucet light that fits on most kitchen sink nozzles is very clever. Once attached, the water will light up in a beautiful blue color when you turn on the tap. If it gets hotter, the color switches to red.  But my favorite is a set of cooking utentils from OXO (Ox-Oh) that are so fabulous for those with Arthritis. They have non-slip, flexible handles and come in attractive gift sets.  
  • Coffee, Tea, or Me.  Single serving coffee makers make it so easy to enjoy a cup of coffee without the fuss of making a whole pot. It's hard to find anything easier to use that the Keurig or Nespresso. And if your parent or other relative already has one of these, there are plenty of pods (coffee and tea) and accessories that they'll also appreciate.

  • Special Food Treats: Have you discovered My Mothers' Delicacies?  IMHO, they make the most delicious rugelach and cookies. They're packaged while still warm and even the UPS delivery person can smell the wonderful aroma seeping out from the box. Those on gluten free diets will love,love,love the cookies and brownies from Miami's own Organic GinnyBakes. You can purchase special platters, boxes of cookies, or mixes that you can make yourself if you like your cookie warm. You can send a half-gallon jar of heat and eat "hand-crafted chicken soup from  “Spoonful of Comfort.”  They include a soup ladle and made-from-scratch rolls so it can be a complete meal. The gift package comes with a note card and candy cane and they even throw in four-servings of hot cocoa. 
  • For the Visually Impaired: A magnifying glass makes a fabulous gift. There are many to choose from depending on your need.  Firststreetonline sells magnifying tools that can go over a desk top or laptop computer, can help in reading prescription bottles, those that are lit for nighttime use, and even those that just fit in a purse or pocket. How about a large TV/Audio remote controller from Big Button Remotes.  You'll find ones that are back lit and easy for those with arthritic hands to use.
  • For the Hearing Impaired: A set of “TV Listener Wireless Headphones” is the perfect gift for someone who always needs the volume set on high. They allow someone to listen to to the TV, Stereo, Radio, or any other audio source at a comfortable volume, without disturbing others in the room. This gift is not only for the hearing impaired but also for someone who wants to watch TV when someone else is sleeping. 
  • For The Visually and Hearing Impaired: A photo phone from Serene that features nine large photo memory buttons for the visually impaired. The phone also features an extra loud ringer and is hearing aid compatible. You can find this phone and other well designed phones online at Amazon as well as in stores such as Sears.
  • For the Card Player: playing card holders are a thoughtful for those suffering from arthritis or other hand joint pain and find it difficult to hold plaing cards. These are priced under $10. They can also perform double duty as Mah Johngg tile holders, or even recipe holders in the kitchen!   
  • For great stocking stuffers: How about an LED Lenser M1 Flashlight? It's powered by a lithium 10 year battery, and it's a great gadget to keep next to a bed for someone who gets up in the middle of the night. You can purchase this on Amazon.  One of my favorite gifts is a "reacher grabber."  It grabs all those things that are either too high or far away (or even on the floor). No ladders, stepstools or chairs needed. 
  • And Finally--- For the Golfer: Bionic ReliefGrip Leather Gloves are especially great for those with arthritic hands. Some wearers claim that they even   increase swing speed and distance!  They're constructed so that they will help to keep your hands cool and dry, even on hot days. 

And speaking about Golf, don't forget to check out my annual Holiday "Give A Gift of Fitness" suggestions. 

 Here's list of websites that will make your holiday gift giving for that special mature adult easier.

“BE MY EYES” iOS APP

The National Federation of the Blind estimates there are nearly 7 million sight impaired people living in the US. Nearly half are 65 and older, an age group that already faces its own challenges.

But help is on the way, thanks to new app created by Danish craftsman Hans Jørgen Wiberg that seeks to make life easier for the blind by connecting them with sighted volunteers. “Be My Eyes” allows anyone with a visual impairment to ask a sighted volunteer for help with something that requires normal vision.

To request help, the user opens the app and touches a button to ask for a volunteer. Volunteers receive a notification (only between the hours of 7 a.m. until 10 p.m.), which they can either accept or ignore.

The app launched just six weeks ago in Apple’s App store (no Android version is yet available) , and has attracted almost 40,000 volunteers and 3,000 blind and visually impaired users. It’s available worldwide, in 10 languages live in the AppStore and has been translated to 31.

Welcome To The New Seniority Matters Website

This is a big year for me. Seniority Matters celebrates its' fifth year, and I am turning 60. Which got me thinking about a facelift. For the website, naturally.

So I’m thrilled to unveil the new Seniority Matters website,  the result of what I’ve learned over the past few years from caregivers like you - users of our directory, my individual clients and the many professionals in the geriatric and caregiving world who continually share their diverse elder care experiences in peer reviewed journals, and in social media.

I have added many new features that I believe will expedite your search for the best caregiving solutions for your parents or other aging relatives and keep you informed of important issues we all face as we age. Among them:

  • An expanded and much easier-to-navigate Directory of top-notch, pre screened service providers throughout south Florida. You’ll find more businesses offering lifestyle - or  non-medical — services that can make life easier and satisfying for your aging parent or relative.
  • A personal chat feature for those who need some help in their directory search, or can’t decide if they can do it alone. We can chat online for a few minutes or schedule telephone time for a free, fifteen-minute chat.  
  •  “Ask Nancy” caregiving advice columns that you can search by topic such as caregiving, family relationships, or financial.  There’s a good chance you’ll find one or two columns that particularly resonate with you. Sending me a question of your own is now easier too. Look for the “Ask me a Question” purple button on the home page.
  • An expanded and up-to-date listing of resources that can provide the information or services that you’re looking for. It’s in this area of the website where I’ll be sharing information about activities in community and adult day care centers as well as community-based programs that can provide respite and companion care at low or no cost.  
  • Finally, don’t forget to check out my blog and follow me on Twitter and Facebook. These are where I share everything I learn about aging, geriatric care, trends in caregiving, and even new products and services that can enhance your parents’ life and help you, the caregiver.


As you may know, I established Seniority Matters following my own experience with aging parents. I am grateful to be doing something that I love --- sharing what I’ve learned as a caregiver and healthcare professional with families that are now in a similar situation.

My new website is designed with you in mind. I hope you find it helpful.  I love hearing from you, so don't hesitate to contact me with website feedback, or questions or concerns.

They also provide transportation services to the vet, petstore. or groomer.

One of the things I like most about them and why I'm so thrilled to welcome them to our network of service providers, is that they take the care and safety of ours pets as seriously and as lovingingly as we do—they know our pets are members of our family. Equally so--- they treat the safety and care of their clients with the highest priority. They conduct backgrounds checks and spend time getting to know all their employees.

Their services fill a huge need. The one thing that we can always count as we and/or our parents age is that unplanned events, appointments, and challenges occur without warning. And when these events take place, our dogs still must get out  to do their business and get their exercise. Flavia and Frankie to the rescue.

The process is easyy: you simply a schedule an in-home interview—where they can introduce themselves to you and your pet and learn where you keep the pet supplies, and other particiulars about your pet. That way when you have the need for their services, you simply have to call. It’s requires very little planning ahead. Your pet will welcome them with purrs and licks. 

They're very active on Facebook and Instagram—so when you’re not with your dog---you can still see them--- and witness, first-hand all the fun they’re having. For full disclosure---I use Equipaws services for my own dog for whom nothing is too good! It gives me the peace of mind I need when I am at a comference or out of town--- I love viewing the photos of him that they post. It's the next best thing to being there.

To learn more about their services, you can view their listing in our directory, visit their website- or follow them on Facebook or Instagram—You’ll be glad you did! You won’t be able to help but smile!

GreyMatters: A Great Way To Share Memories With Older Family Members

If our childhood friend "Old McDonald" ran the iTunes store instead of his farm, he'd probably sing, "Here an app, there an app, everywhere an app-app!"  Today, there are hundreds of great Apple and Android applications that you can download for a better lifestyle.

In my ongoing search for great applications and other resources for seniors and caregivers, I ran across GreyMatters. It's an exciting and interactive free iPad app that that makes it easy to share memories and stories with family members suffering from Alzheimer's disease or other dementias.

Offered by GreyMatters LLC, this app is basically an interactive life storybook that includes preloaded music from past decades, memory games. It lets you add personal family photos with easy-to-read text, and can bring a big smile and a long-lost "spark of life" to seniors who spend their days lost in their own worlds.

I can tell you first hand that communicating is one of the most difficult aspects of caring for a parent with dementia. But several years ago, I realized that  sharing memories over family photos was one of the easiest and most fulfilling ways for me to communicate with my father who had dementia.

We had some good laughs together as he told me stories prompted by pictures in his own high school yearbook, and we chuckled at the fashions and hairstyles in my yearbooks from the '70s. Those times together were some of my favorite memories of my dad in his last years.

Now, GreyMatters makes it easy for you to connect with an aging family member with memory issues. It gives you a wide variety of communication tools, so you can try different ways to break through. You can also record reminders for your loved one, or answers to their most common questions.

With GreyMatters, you can load your tablet with your own photos or videos from the past or the present. You could also play a game of memory cards, helping your senior find matching photos of Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, or other celebrities from that era.  The tablet screen is big enough for a senior with vision problems, but light enough to fit in your purse.

You can also create a custom music playlist from your iTunes library or take advantage of pre-loaded songs from the 1940s and '50s that are bound to strike a chord with an aging relative. Maybe you could sing along together – but don't be surprised if your senior can remember the words to those old standards better than you can!

By letting you create a personalized digital "scrapbook," GreyMatters is providing a wonderful service to families all over the country. I encourage you to download this app, and share your experiences with me.

Protecting Your Parents (and Yourself) From Identity Thieves

Identity thieves and other criminals often prey on aging seniors. They know that someone who is a bit confused or forgetful may be persuaded to provide information about their bank account, Social Security number (SSN), date of birth or other private information. But identity theft is a serious problem for people of all ages, and knowing how to respond is important for you as well as your aging parent.

I myself was the victim of identity theft in April when I learned that someone else had used my SSN to submit an income tax return to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) – presumably for a big refund that would be deposited in someone else's account.

What ensued was a full day of waiting on hold, filing reports, and learning a lot more about the realities of identity theft.  I would like to share my experience so you can learn from a "real-world" situation.

After pouring myself a cup of coffee that morning, I dialed the IRS, listened to their list of confusing prompts and then waited for more than 45 minutes before being "disconnected." The same thing happened when I dialed in a second and third time. But without any assistance from the IRS and a little luck, I was able to piece together what to do.

While on hold I emailed a money manager that I work with who told me about an Identity Theft Affidavit (form 14039) that you can find on the IRS website (www.irs.gov).  I downloaded the form, filled it out and attached it to my tax return, which I filed manually, by snail mail, rather than electronically, the following day.

Once this form is submitted to the IRS, you will receive a PIN number that you must include on all tax submissions in the future in order to file your taxes. Unlike many tax forms, you can complete this yourself. You can also give it to the accountant who prepares your tax return. If you have questions about this I suggest you speak with an Accountant.

As luck would have it, I was checking my Twitter feed while on hold with the IRS and saw that Jonelle Marte, a financial blogger and reporter for the Washington Post  had just posted an article, “Report cites a second blow for identity theft victims: Long waits from the IRS.” She noted that “only 40% of callers will get through to an agent, and it was clear I was NOT going to be one of them.

So, I quickly emailed Ms. Marte, who responded right away with some helpful advice. (By the way, her well written, easy-to-read blog is full of useful financial information.) She told me three things I should do that day:

            1. Contact one of the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and TransUnion) to place a “fraud alert” on my credit records. This will help prevent a downgrade in your credit rating, but it also means that you cannot apply for credit within at least 90 days. Once you place the alert with one of the companies, they will alert the other two companies. You will receive a notification from them with a "code" to allow you to get a free credit report to make sure the fraud has not gone "deeper" than what was initially identified.

            2. File a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission at www.identitytheft.com or by using the FTC Identify Hotline at 1-877-438-4338-- Their website contains a lot of helpful information.

            3. File a report with your local police department, which may have a complaint form that you can download

As extra precaution, and in the event that the identity theft was more than just for my taxes, I went to my banks and notified them, so that no one could apply for credit in my name or withdraw my money.

Fortunately, when identity theft involves filing a fake tax return, it usually doesn't impact your credit cards, but remains confined to the taxes. Nonetheless, this experience has made me protect myself and now have engaged the services of a company that will protect me from ID and Credit Fraud. (this will be the subject of another post!!).

But you should know that you will have to navigate this process on your own – or on behalf of your aging family member – because the IRS provides no assistance.  Also, let your parents know that the IRS will never contact them by telephone.  In fact, IRS impersonators have been know to call people and convince them that they need to pay their taxes right then and there. Beware of this scam!

Nearly one month later, I am starting the entire follow up process. I’ll keep you posted about what happens.  Because we can all learn from each other, I would be interested in hearing your comments about other personal experiences with identity theft.  It's a very serious problem for everyone.

The Residences: A New Assisted Living Facility In Miami

If you or your parents are considering moving to an assisted living facility (ALF), you’ll want to add The Residences in West Kendall to your list of places to check out. It’s owned and operated by United HomeCare, a non-profit home health and community care organization in MIami-Dade County and it's located right next to the West Baptist Kendall Hospital. I went to see it for myself and met with the executive director. Here’s what I learned:

  • It has a capacity for 150 residents and is expected to open in the next few weeks.
  • They plan to accept some medicaid residents in semi-private accomodations.
  • There are 122 studio and one-bedroom units in addition to a 15 room memory care unit.
  • The dining room features table service with meals prepared by a gourmet chef (I sampled some of her dishes and I have to say they were excellent).
  • Their monthly fees include laundry, transportation, telephone, WiFI, daily housekeeping services and other activities.
  • Residents who live independently but need a little assistance at night with things like medications or turning down their beds receive this help without additional charges.
I was impressed with the chief administrator, Maria Torre who told me that her main goal is to operate the facility “like a first class hotel.” And, as the first residents move in, she hopes to be able to assign rooms in a way that places like-minded people near each other (perhaps bridge players in one corridor and garden enthusiasts in another).
 
It’s a lovely looking facility that’s light and bright with lots of artwork, with gardens and entertaining spaces planned for the building’s exterior.
 
If you or a family member have been thinking about moving to an ALF,  you should schedule a visit and see if it's a good fit.  You won’t know until you spend some time there, enjoy a meal, talk to other residents or prospective residents and “try it on.” 
 
I’d love to know your opinion about The Residences if you do visit. Email me at nancy@senioritymatters.com and let me know what you think. For more details about The Residences, here’s a link to their website.

Fifty: It Is NOT The New Thirty

When author and editor Lorraine C. Ladish turned 50, her friends congratulated – and consoled - her. But when someone tried to comfort her with the oft-repeated phrase “Don’t worry, 50 is the new 30,” she took offense.

“Fifty is not the new 30, or the new 40. It´s the new 50, and that´s a great thing! If it really were the new 30 or 40, I´d probably be pining to have another baby. And then when my mid-life kid turned 20, I´d be a good old 70. Now please don´t tell me that life starts at 70,” she writes on her website, Viva Fifty.

Her witty website was created as a bilingual and multicultural community to share the joys of midlife. “My hope is that we can inspire and empower one another to thrive in health and happiness,” she writes.

The website features weekly articles and posts on everything from beauty, travel, and health issues to reviews of products. Here, you’ll discover that 50 is not too old for DIY projects, learn how to choose the best eyeglass frames, find the best spots for a getaway – even how to delve into dating.

Want to share your ideas? She’s inviting writers, bloggers and readers to offer their stories and thoughts on how to live life to the fullest. After all, we’re all in this together. Or we should be.

“I promise we’ll do our best to make you feel at home and help you enrich your life, and more importantly, to give you a voice,”  writes Ladish, who quips that she “can still look stunning in a tight, sassy red dress (with only the best body-sculpting shape-wear underneath, that is).”

Check On Your Parents This Holiday Season

The holidays are often the only time of year when the extended family gets together, and those occasions offer you and your siblings an opportunity to check on your parents well-being and discuss your observations together. Do they seem more forgetful or confused? Are they frailer than the last time you saw them? Have they lost too much weight? If you’ve noticed significant changes in their behavior and appearance, it’s time to discuss these concerns with your siblings and then, with all of you together, with your parents as well.

With the exception of sudden and unforeseen medical events, such as a fall or stroke, the need for assistance in aging parents rarely happens over night. However, most families wait until a medical crisis forces major decisions before acting. I’ve observed firsthand that those families who have been prepared end up with better quality care and much less stress — for your parents as well as you, the caregiver.

What does being prepared mean? Here are links to several articles I’ve written on what you can do to get ready and be prepared. It begins with a conversation with your parents. And there’s no time like the present for that first step.
