New Medicaid Laws Require More (Not Less) Estate Planning
Written by Attorney Iris M. Christenson Christenson and Allex, LLC

2013-2014 Senior Resource Directory ~ 9

Did you hear about the recent changes to Medicaid rules?
Being able to protect any of your assets from long term care costs will be more difficult now without advanced planning under the new Wisconsin rules. On June 30, 2013, Governor Walker signed Wisconsin’s 2013-2014 Budget into law. The new Budget Bill includes drastic changes in the Medicaid program that will make any attempts to preserve assets for future generations or just reserve assets for a non-disabled spouse extremely difficult or impossible. These changes were not highlighted in the news prior to passage of the Budget Bill so very few people knew that their representatives were considering proposals that would jeopardize their family’s financial future. The effective date of the changes to Medicaid rules is October 1, 2013. However, a lastminute amendment creates a delay in the enforcement of these provisions until a set of procedures can be created to implement the changes. It is unclear exactly when the enforcement will start but it is expected that enforcement will start soon after October 1, 2013. Before the Budget Bill, a couple could enter into a Marital Property Agreement any time before or after a spouse qualified for Medicaid and then transfer all assets to the community spouse so that spouse could transfer assets to other family members without a penalty. Now, the non-disabled spouse would be prevented from transferring any assets to anyone else until the spouse receiving Medicaid has been on Medicaid at least 5 years. If an asset is transferred as a gift before the end of the 5 years, the spouse receiving Medicaid will be penalized. Before the Budget Bill, a single or married person on Medicaid could transfer an exempt asset such as a family business (e.g. a farm or a rental property) to other family members and allow those family members to keep the business going. This was a very

important provision for many families who hoped to keep the family farm “in the family” for many generations. Now, the transfer of an exempt asset without being paid full fair market value will result in a penalty period of many months or even years.

etc.) could be transferred to persons other than the spouse who is receiving Medicaid (if the couple had completed a special type of Marital Property Agreement). Typically, the only assets that were subject to Estate Recovery claims were probate assets. Now, the Estate Recovery Program will seek repayment for any Medicaid benefits received by either spouse by making claims against probate and nonprobate assets—basically, all assets owned by either spouse.

What can you do?
The best approach is to plan far in advance (at least 5 years) before either spouse needs to apply for Medicaid. Of course, the illness that results in a disability may occur suddenly and not give you the opportunity to plan ahead. At a minimum, a couple should meet with an Elder Law attorney when BOTH spouses are able to sign documents to create the most flexible Power of Attorney for Finances and Property and a Marital Property Agreement— the type that says the title of the asset will determine whether the asset is individual property or marital property. Other estate planning documents are also important but these two documents can make all of the difference when a couple is trying to protect the assets from long term care costs. Some planning options will still be available until October 1, 2013 but many options will no longer be available after October 1, 2013. If you have concerns about these issues and wonder how the changes could affect you or a family member, a consultation with an Elder Law attorney would be advisable.

Before the Budget Bill, assets that the non-disabled spouse owned which would be transferred at death as non-probate assets (living trust assets, life insurance, retirement benefits,

Are you at risk for Identity Theft?
also the one that suffers the effects of a ruined credit record. There are three major types of Identity Theft: Financial ID Theft, Criminal ID Theft and Identity Cloning. While all three have serious consequences, this article will focus on Financial ID Theft. Financial ID Theft is when a thief obtains and uses your name and Social Security Number or other financial identification number to apply for credit cards, loans or phone service, buy merchandise, lease vehicles or rent apartments. To avoid the consequences of Identity Theft, you must “put a lock on your personal and financial information.” How, you ask? It starts with awareness. A first step in becoming Identity Theft Aware is to assess your risk by asking these questions: • How careful am I with my personal information? • Do I give others my personal information on the phone and/or over the Internet? • Do I think about what kind of information I put in the trash? • Do I keep my computer’s antivirus/ firewall up to date? (A firewall establishes a barrier between a trusted, secure internal network and another network (e.g., the Internet) that is not assumed to be secure and trusted.) • Am I careful with my wallet or purse? Do I minimize unnecessary chances of losing these valuables? • Do I know how my bank or other businesses use the personal information I give them? A second step in becoming Identity Theft Aware is to know what makes up your identity. Your Identity Information is typically a combination of: What you have - your bank accounts and credit cards, How you access what you have typically by your Account numbers and Your PIN (Personal Identification Number) or Passwords, and Verification of who you are through a signature, photo or fingerprint. Know that any of these can be used to steal your identity and turn your loss into a thief’s personal gain. Protect this information to safeguard your identity. Sadly, most victims of identity theft do not even realize their information has been stolen until noticeable financial losses are recorded. How does an identity thief get your information? You might be surprised at some of the ways! • They rummage through your garbage, the trash of businesses, or public dumps looking for unshredded financial information or mail. • They may work “or pretend to work” for legitimate companies, medical offices, clinics,

Have you ever wondered if you are you at risk for Identity Theft?
Unfortunately, “YES” is the likely answer and the risk continues to rise as identity thieves become increasingly creative with their tactics to steal your identity. Odds are you even know of someone who has been a victim. Please know you are not alone and asking for help in resolving this is the best action you can take. Identity theft occurs when someone takes your name, Social Security number, date of birth or other personal information (such as your credit card number, bank account numbers or insurance information) in order to access resources or obtain credit and other benefits in your name. An identity thief may drain your bank account, run up charges on your credit cards, open new utility accounts, or get medical treatment on your health insurance. An identity thief can file a tax return in your name and get your refund. In some extreme cases, a thief might even give your name to the police during an arrest. The victim of identity theft (the person whose information has been assumed by the identity thief) is left with unwanted bills and numerous headaches. The victim is

Checks

• DO NOT have your Driver’s Licence number printed on check • Use a work phone number instead of home phone number • Use a P.O.

The good news is - even though identity thieves are using more creative tactics to attempt to steal your identity, there are many more resources available today keeping you informed and educated regarding your financial identity. Many of these resources can be accessed through the McFarland State Bank website, www.msbonline.com, under the Financial Tips & Info menu. On this site, you will find an informative video titled Identity Theft Prevention: Simple Steps for Protecting Your Identity as well as other links for your education and protection. McFarland State Bank also provides seminars on Protecting Your Assets from Identity Theft. Call your local McFarland State Bank Office for information about the next scheduled session. If you have any questions regarding the protection of your identity or if you are concerned that your identity has been stolen, please contact your trusted advisor or call McFarland State Bank at 608.838.3141 and ask for a personal banker who will be happy to assist you.

Ways to Minimize Your ID Theft Risk
An often-overlooked resource to help minimize your ID Theft Risk is that each of us has a Trusted Advisor that we can turn to when making important financial decisions. “That person can be a spouse, another family member, a trusted friend, or someone at your financial institution.” Your trusted advisor does not have to be in control, but should be able to help if you are faced with making a decision involving a large sum of money, or if you feel that you are a potential victim of fraud or identity theft. Many times people feel embarrassed or ashamed for allowing someone to take advantage of them and then try to hide the facts from friends and family members or they try to deal with it on their own. For many reasons, this can be a costly mistake. The people who are committing crimes involving fraud and identity theft are very convincing and organized and it will take an organized approach on our part to counter their efforts to take what does not belong to them.

2. Adult day care – several programs are available in Jefferson County that provides care in their facilities several days during the week. This allows the individual an opportunity to leave the home and have interactions with other people. When Looking for Assisted Living, Consider the Following When Visiting Facilities. 1. Is the home clean, in good repair and free of unpleasant odors? 2. How friendly is the staff? Is the staff interacting appropriately with residents? 3. What types of activities are available to keep residents engaged and stimulated? 4. Ask about the dining experience. Are special diets accommodated? Ask to see a menu. 5. What safety and security features does the facility have? If a person has Alzheimer’s or another dementia, are the doors locked for security? 6. Is care provided with dignity? How do the residents look and do they appear happy? 7. Is the facility licensed by the State? If so, what is their survey history? 8. If the facility claims to provide ‘specialty’ care, what specifically do they do to distinguish themselves for this ‘specialty’? The Aging and Disability Resource Center is available as a source to gather information and receive guidance to determine which option is best for your situation. Getting help is success for you and for your loved one. For more information and to receive a Resource Guide, contact Sienna Meadows at 989 Park Street in Oregon, WI 53575 or give us a call at 608-835-0000.

When you provide care for a loved one, you could be providing support 24/7 – based on the needs of the individual. If the person you are caring for has Alzheimer’s disease or another related dementia, you are probably ‘on guard’ constantly. It can be exhausting for you. It’s okay to admit you need help! Many of the families we work with feel a sense of vanquish because they just can’t provide the care for their loved one any longer. This isn’t failure, but a natural response and the realization that changes need to occur so both you and your loved one can receive proper attention and care. Admitting and accepting that help is needed is the first step to living a better quality of life for both the loved one and family caregiver. Now what? There are several options for an individual who has Alzheimer’s disease or another related dementia. 1. Home care – professional caregivers come into your home to provide assistance with personal cares and camaraderie. Having a set schedule will allow the family to run errands, attend appointments, or just take time for themselves, know that their loved one is being taken care.

3. Assisted living – 24-hour care and supervision. This option offers the individual social interaction, a safe environment with specialized staff, and nutritious meals. Looking for the right assisted living can be a tiresome and an emotionally draining task, however when you have a guide of what to look for it will seem to all come together naturally.

Hearing Loss Coping Strategies
People typically wait seven to 10 years before seeking help for a hearing loss. In the meantime, many maladaptive coping strategies can develop. Bluffing is a common technique. Most everyone can think of someone who simply smiles and nods when they are in a group, even when they are not really hearing what is being said. Others with hearing loss will dominate the conversation. By monopolizing the conversation, they are assured they will not miss anything, since no one else has a chance to get in a word. People with hearing loss are often accused of ignoring others or not responding when others speak to them, when in fact, they may not have heard them at all. This can lead to misunderstandings and frustration for both parties. Some people cope with hearing loss by withdrawing from social situations. A hearing-impaired grandmother may stay busy in the kitchen so she does not have to deal with the frustration of trying to hear her family, who is gathered around the dining room table. Sadly, they miss out on visiting with her. Other people with hearing loss may sit in a corner and avoid participating in social activities like cards because it is such a struggle to hear. The worst type of withdrawal occurs when the hearing-impaired person feels it is just too difficult to participate in groups and stays home instead. There are many effective strategies that can make conversations easier for those with hearing loss. For a hearingimpaired person, listening takes much more effort than it does for the rest of us. It can leave the hearing-impaired person exhausted after a few hours of straining to catch each word. It is very important to take a respite period after listening so intently. This may be as simple as scheduling some down time between doctor’s appointments. When the hearing impaired person is taking a break from listening, they tune out more than the rest of us. It is important to be sure to gain the attention of a hearing-impaired person before talking to them, or they may miss the first few words. Facing the speaker can improve communication, as well. Even though most hearing impaired people have no formal lip-reading training, they still get valuable information from the speaker’s lips and face. Facial expressions can often be the clue that tells you if someone is being sarcastic or angry. If a speaker slows their speech rate, words are articulated more precisely and thus are clearer. By slowing down your speech rate, those speaking to you will tend to slow their rate as well. We naturally model our speech after those we are talking to, such as speaking louder to someone who is speaking loudly to us. These simple techniques can make communication much easier, but they are only possible if the speaker knows about the hearing loss. If you have a hearing loss, don’t hide it. Let people know you have a hearing loss and get them to help you. Use the ears of friends and family to help you when you miss things. The friend who sits next to you at cards can clue you in to the trump

Lisa Martin Au.D. Zounds Hearing of Madison

Although it is invisible, loss of hearing is a physical loss just like a broken bone. Hearing loss has an impact far greater than missing a few words. It is one more blow to a person’s self image, often affecting someone who is already dealing with failing eyesight, arthritis, or mobility issues. It becomes very frustrating to find yet another body part that is not working like it should. Since people are often judged by how they communicate, those who misunderstand what others say may be judged to be senile or not as sharp as they used to be. These common negative stereotypes can lead people to avoid social situations for fear of what others think of them as they struggle with hearing loss.

suit if you missed it. Tell key people, such as your doctor, who may be more than willing to write down the names of medications or procedures for you. When attending a presentation, arrive early and explain to the speaker that you have trouble hearing. The presenter may be able to give you an outline to follow. Listening is much easier when you know the topic of conversation. Our brains are predictive and will attempt to fill in the gaps of what was not heard. There is only a limited set of words associated with each topic, so when the topic is known, the brain has a much easier time predicting the words that were missed.

If you are unsure of the topic, repeat back to the speaker what you heard. For example, “something about gardening... ” Repeating back what you heard can also be helpful when setting up appointments to confirm that dates and times were heard correctly. Hearing is difficult enough with a hearing loss, but when there is background noise present, it can be nearly impossible. The noise from water running, the TV, dishwasher, or washing machine may be enough to drown out the soft consonant sounds that give speech its clarity. Turning off the noise source or moving to a quieter room greatly improves speech understanding. In a restaurant, most waitresses will gladly seat you at a table that is not near a noisy kitchen or doorway.

The noise from other tables can also interfere with conversations, such as when multiple tables of card players gather for a weekly game of bridge. Spreading the tables farther apart will help each table to hear their own players much better. This is because sound decreases the farther it travels. A sound is one16th as loud at the ear of a listener four feet away than it was when it left the speaker’s lips. Thinking of this in terms of rooms, sound is 150 times softer across a 12 foot room than it is at the source of the sound. That is why something as simple as moving chairs closer together makes such a difference. Coping effectively with hearing loss is not easy. It takes a great deal of patience. Using these techniques to create an optimal listening environment can change a once frustrating task into a rewarding social experience. Don’t let hearing loss stop you from participating in life.

Could your loved one benefit from a memory care residence?
Submitted by: Carrie Georgeson, RN Administrator Meadows Assisted Living and Memory Care Spring Green, WI • 608-588-2101

2013-2014 Senior Resource Directory ~ 29

These days you can find countless Internet sites that offer information about memory care residences in your area and how to choose the right one. What is more difficult to find, however, is why a person should choose a memory care residence for a loved one experiencing Alzheimer’s or dementia. This question often can be very difficult for caregivers, as the answer is subjective and can be tangled up in feelings of love, responsibility, guilt and inadequacy. Most caregivers want the best for their loved ones. How do you know when doing the best thing means moving them into a memory care residence? One way to find your answer to this question is to take a step back and evaluate through the following questions what life is like for you and your loved one at this time: - What is your primary role in your loved one’s life? Are you able to nurture and enjoy your role of spouse, adult child or caring friend, or is it being overtaken by the role caregiver? Healthy relationships are vital to help your loved one feel loved, safe and cared for. If you are growing ever more impatient or overwhelmed, your reactions can trigger challenging behaviors for your loved one, creating a vicious cycle. Transitioning your loved one to a residence with specially trained staff can allow you to pass on the role of caregiver to others and resurrect your primary role, which only you can fill. - Are you able to insure your loved one’s safety? Forgetfulness, confusion and wandering are hallmarks of Alzheimer’s and dementia, and these can change abruptly as the condition progresses. Leaving your loved one

alone for even short periods of time can create a potentially hazardous situation, even if you’ve done your very best to safeguard them. A residence with alarmed doors and round-the-clock experienced caregivers can safeguard your loved one, giving you peace of mind so you can continue with the demands of life. - Are you able to provide high quality care every day that meets your

loved one’s needs? As a person’s mental faculties diminish, maintaining personal health and hygiene can be a struggle. Familiar routines like showering, washing hair or shaving can suddenly be frightening

to your loved one and cause them great distress. They can also lose their ability to communicate when they are ill or in pain. A residence with quality care coordinated by specially trained nurses will help your loved one maintain their optimum level of health. - Are you able to keep your loved one busy and engaged in active living? The demands of a caregiver are great. They bear the burden of everyday household and financial concerns on top of the responsibility to meet their loved one’s physical, mental and emotional needs. These can quickly fill up a day, leaving little time for activities that can bring joy and muchneeded stimulation to your loved one. A residence with individualized social programming can greatly increase your loved one’s quality of life. Enjoying a past-loved hobby, listening to music, cooking, going on a walk, or just being with their peers can help them reconnect to parts of their life that may have become hidden. We hope addressing these questions can help you navigate your personal caregiving journey and achieve the highest quality of life possible for you and your loved one.
