Park Place’s Memory Care
UNION CHAPEL RD

DIEBOLD RD

PARK PLACE serves seniors who experience various forms
of memory loss. Individuals are assessed to identify their
cognitive and physical abilities. The Park Place staff takes this
a step further. They learn about each person’s unique life story
to develop a comprehensive service plan. This is done with
the family and ongoing family involvement is fostered and
encouraged.
Both physical and emotional stimulation are then
incorporated into the plan to support and maximize quality of
life. A state of the art security system is provided which allows
residents to live independently while remaining within the
comfort of a secured environment.

A Word from the
President of the Council
on Senior Services
BY KATHY LEWIS
The Council on Senior Services (COSS) is a community council of professionals who work for and volunteer for agencies
and businesses that serve senior citizens. The goal of COSS is
to improve access to services for seniors in Allen County. This
directory has been developed to educate senior citizens and
professionals about the numerous services that exist.
Proceeds from the advertising sales in this directory pay for
printing of the book and for grants to organizations that submit
projects created for the health, education and/or welfare of
seniors in our community. Grants awarded in 2012 included
Community Transportation Network, Allen County Council on
Aging, A Day Away Adult Daycare, Allen County TRIAD, Aging
& In-Home Services, The Volunteer Center @ RSVP, Turnstone
Center for Children and Adults with Disabilities, Northeast Indiana Radio Reading Service, Long Term Care Ombudsman,
Hope Alive, Health Visions, Heartland Hospice, Parkview Seniors Club and Trails Edge Resident Activity Committee.
Organizations interested in placing an ad in the 2014
directory may contact Jill Headrick via e-mail at jheadrick@
kingstonhealthcare.com.
Directories will be available for pickup at the Community
Center, 233 W. Main St., Volunteer Center @ RSVP, 3401 Lake
Ave., Suite 4, Aging and In-Home Services, 2927 Lake Ave,
Kingston at Dupont, 1716 E. Dupont Rd., League for the Blind
& Disabled, 5821 S. Anthony Blvd., and Kingston Residence,
7515 Winchester Rd. To request a copy to be mailed to you,

Care Benefits
Veterans’ Benefits for Long Term Care

The VA provides home and community-based services to veterans.
These medically necessary services include home care, hospice, respite care, assisted living, domiciliary care, geriatric assessments and
nursing home care. The veteran must be enrolled in VA’s health care
system. Some of these services may be offered to veterans who
do not have service-connected disabilities but who may qualify because of low income or because they are receiving pension income
from VA. Call the VA Northern Indiana Health Care System at 4265431.
Aid and Attendance is an under used benefit. It is a special pension
benefit for wartime veterans and their wives. Some who are not eligible for VA benefits because of income, may still be eligible for this
benefit if they have large medical expenses. The benefit is for those
receiving in-home care, inability to take care of bodily needs, or
bedridden. They may also qualify because of mental injury or illness
that requires regular assistance to protect them from the hazards in
their daily environment. They may be living at home, in an assisted
living facility, or a nursing facility. For additional information, call Allen County Veterans’ Services at 449-7861 or access the internet at
www.va.gov.

Care Benefits
Long Term Care

Long term care is a variety of services that include medical and nonmedical care to people who have a chronic illness or disability. It
helps the individuals meet their health or personal needs. It often assists people with support services such as activities of daily living like
dressing, bathing, and using the bathroom. These services can be
provided in the home, in the community, in assisted livings, or in nursing facilities. Generally, Medicare does not pay for these long term
care services, referred to as “custodial care.” Medicare pays only for
medically necessary skilled nursing and therapies in the home and
for skilled care in nursing facilities.

Medicaid and Long Term Care

Medicaid is a combined State and Federal Government program
that pays for certain health services and nursing home care for older
people with low incomes and limited assets. It is an entitlement program which means that all who qualify for it will receive it. For information and to apply, call 1-800-403-0864 or access the internet at
www.in.gov/fssa or www.ifcem.com.
Medicaid Waiver is the Medicaid program that pays for in-home
long term care services. Income allowed in order to be eligible for
this program is three times the amount allowed for the regular Medicaid program. This is not an entitlement program so there may be
a wait.

Care Transitions
“Care Transitions” originally described a joint initiative of the Administration on Aging (AOA) and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid
(CMS) to fund programs related to improving the coordination of
the transitions through the network of Aging & Disability Resource
Centers (ADRC) they had created within Area Agencies on Aging.
ADRCs have been working to assist individuals in “critical pathways,”
which is defined as the times or places when people make important decisions about long-term care. This work included several innovative interventions to facilitate the hospital discharge process and
to help nursing facility residents return to the community. Since that
time, models have expanded around the country, most notably,
CMS’ Community-based Care Transitions Program (CCTP). The term
is now applied to CMS’ CCTP partners as well as those created under other auspices. The hallmarks of any “Care Transition” program
should be and evidence-based intervention, a person-centered approach to support patients and their caregivers, support across care

settings, and outcome measures to improve quality and safety.
Care Transitions is an evidence based support for transitions from
hospital to home.

Safe & Independent at Home
For over 46 years, the U.S. Administration on Aging (AoA) has provided home and community-based services to millions of older persons through the programs funded under the Older Americans Act.
President Lyndon Johnson on August 14, 1965, signed into law the
Older Americans Act (OAA). The OAA set out specific objectives for
the maintaining the dignity and welfare of older individuals and created the primary vehicle for organizing, coordinating and providing
community-based services and opportunities for older Americans
and their families.
The original legislation established authority for grants to states for
community planning and social services, research and development projects, and personnel training in the field of aging. The law
also established the Administration on Aging (AoA) to administer the
newly created grant programs and to serve as the Federal focal
point on matters concerning older persons. The mission was later expanded to include those individuals with disabilities.
Although older individuals and individuals with disabilities may receive services under many other Federal programs, today the OAA
is considered to be the major vehicle for the organization and delivery of social and nutrition services to this group and their caregivers. It authorizes a aide array of service programs through a nation
network of 50 states agencies, 629 Area Agencies on Aging, nearby
a national network of providers and a number of Tribal and Native
Hawaiian organizations.
As the Area III Area Agency on Aging as designated by the U.S. Administration on Aging and Indiana Family and Social Services Administration, Division of Aging, Aging & In-Home Services of Northeast Indiana (AIHS) is the primary resource for aging and disabled
populations and the largest funder of services including support for
the Council on Aging in the following nine counties: Allen, Adams,
DeKalb, Huntington, LaGrange, Noble, Steuben, Wells, and Whitley.

Safe & Independent at Home
Each year, AIHS completes an Area Plan with information on the
needs and preferences of older individuals and persons with disabilities and their family caregivers in relation to a comprehensive, coordinated system for providing long-term care in home and community-based settings in AIHS’ nine county region. The AIHS Area Plan
is part of the overall State Plan on Aging which is submitted to the
Administration on Aging in accordance with provisions of the Older
Americans Act.
Services under that plan include Meals on Wheels home-delivered
meals programs, Senior Dining in congregate settings, transportation, adult day care, legal assistance, health promotion or chronic
disease self-management programs, among others.
Nationally, information on services is available from the Eldercare Locator, a public service of the U.S. Administration on Aging, at 1-800677-1116, or from the National Department of Health and Human
Services - www.longtermcare.org. Clearinghouse for Long-Term
Care Information website developed by the U.S.
Locally, access to information and resources on services you need
now or in the future, and how to pay for services, is available through
Aging & In-Home Services of Northeast Indiana’s Aging and Disability Resource Center. Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRCs)
were created by AoA, in partnership with Centers for Medicare &
Medicaid (CMS), to provide consumers and caregivers information
on home and community-based long-term care services. ADRCs
provide consumers information, options counseling, referral, assessment, educational and assistance in planning for the future needs.
AoA is emphasizing the importance of integration of proven evidence-based health promotion interventions, which can lessen disability related to chronic illnesses, prevent falls, and reduce the burden experienced by family caregivers of individuals who are older
and/or disabled.
The ADRC operated by AIHS receives a wide range of calls. The most
requested services are: Case Management; Personal Attendant
Care/Home Health Aide; Homemaker/Chore; Meals on Wheels; Respite Care; Adult Day Services; Emergency Response Systems; Assistive Technology; Assisted Living; Home & Vehicle Modification; Adult
Foster Care.
The challenge to the individual and family is often in funding those
services. ADRC staff are able to assist in informing about and applying for a variety of federal, state, local programs that assist with paying for in-home services, such as Medicaid Aged & Disabled Waiver,
