According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the average home size in 1950 was 983 square feet. Their most recent research reports todays average home size to now be more than 2,584 square feet. That's an enormous difference over the span of a few decades. And, if your lifestyle has grown with the statistics, you've probably accumulated many more possessions than you're currently using. Here, were going to discuss rightsizing benefits in retirement. After all, getting ready for the retirement you've dreamed about takes time and planning.
Just as times have changed relative to home sizes, todays seniors are re-thinking how they actually want to live in their retirement years, and a lot of square footage may not appear to be part of the plan. The experts suggest that empty nesters take a broad look at their plans for retirement 30+ years before they actually want it to happen. This may encompass several different living situations over the later years in life. Some seniors right size from a large suburban home to a condo in the city. Others maintain the family home as a holiday destination and a home-base while they travel. In every case, your plan as you move toward full retirement could change many times and maybe you're already there!
This step-by-step fluctuation in retirement planning gives rightsizing a place of prominence and importance as your plan plays out. And, if you're ready NOW for the big move, you'll appreciate any rightsizing you've already accomplished. No matter when it occurs in your life, rightsizing has major benefits.

Avow Care Services Selected by Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to Test Medicare Dementia Care Model

Guiding an Improved Dementia Experience (GUIDE) Model Aims to Increase Care Coordination, Support for CaregiversNAPLES, FL (July 10, 2024) Today, Avow Care Services announced they have been selected by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in a new Medicare alternative payment model designed to support people living with dementia and their caregivers. Under CMS Guiding an Improved Dementia Experience (GUIDE) Model, Avow will be one of almost 400 participants building Dementia Care Programs (DCPs) across the country, working to increase care coordination and improve access to services and supports, including respite care, for people living with dementia and their caregivers.CMS is excited to partner with Avow under the GUIDE Model, said CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure. GUIDE is a new approach to how Medicare will pay for the care of people living with dementia. The GUIDE participants are envisioning new ways to support not only people living with dementia, but also to reduce strain on the people who care for them, so that more Americans can remain in their homes and communities, rather than in institutions.Launched on July 1, 2024, the GUIDE Model will test a new payment approach for key supportive services furnished to people living with dementia, including: comprehensive, person-centered assessments and care plans; care coordination; 24/7 access to an interdisciplinary care team member or help line; and certain respite services to support caregivers. People with dementia and their caregivers will have the assistance and support of a Care Navigator to help them access clinical and non-clinical services such as meals and transportation through community-based organizations."Our acceptance into the GUIDE Model emphasizes Avow's commitment to excellence in dementia care and our dedication to the communities we serve," said Jaysen Roa, President and CEO of Avow, Inc. "We are eager to implement this model, which aligns with our mission to offer support not only to our patients but also to their caregivers, enhancing both their well-being and quality of life."Avow participation in the GUIDE Model will help people living with dementia and their caregivers have access to education and support, such as training programs on best practices for caring for a loved one living with dementia. The GUIDE Model also provides respite services for certain people, enabling caregivers to take temporary breaks from their caregiving responsibilities. Respite is being tested under the GUIDE Model to assess its effect on helping caregivers continue to care for their loved ones at home, preventing or delaying the need for facility care.GUIDE Participants represent a wide range of health care providers, including large academic medical centers, small group practices, community-based organizations, health systems, hospice agencies, and other practices.This model delivers on a promise in the Biden Administrations Executive Order on Increasing Access to High-Quality Care and Supporting Caregivers and aligns with the National Plan to Address Alzheimers DiseaseAbout Avow: Avow was founded in 1983 as Collier County's original, nonprofit hospice. Today, Avows nonprofit companies provide palliative care for adults and children facing chronic or serious illness and hospice care and bereavement support services for children and adults.

10 Easy Office Habits for a Healthier You

Staying fit while at work can be a pain, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle at the workplace is not only doable; it can be easy, with just a few simple adjustments. Here are ten crazy easy ways to boost your health while working in the office. Here are ten incredibly simple ways to improve your health while working in the office.1. Keep HydratedStaying hydrated is one of the easiest ways to maintain good health. Keep a bottle of water on your desk and get into the habit of drinking it during the day. Proper hydration can boost concentration, fight fatigue, and keep your body performing at its best.2. Take Regular BreaksSitting for a long time can cause health issues, such as back pain and poor blood circulation. You can set up a timer to remind yourself to stand up and stretch your body once an hour; you can stand up and stretch or just walk around the office. Such mini-breaks help in releasing stiffness and will also enhance your energy quotient. 3. Standing MeetingStanding meetings break up sitting time for the day. It's not only more energetic and fast-paced but it also allows for improved posture and blood flow. As much as possible, incorporate standing or walking meetings within your workplace. 4. Choose Healthier SnacksDitch sugary snacks for healthier ones. Grab a handful of nuts, fruits, and veggies to stash at your desk. This healthful trio gives you a jolt that will sustain you, rather than crashing like sugary treats, to keep you go-go-going from dawn to dusk.5. Good PostureGood posture is quite invaluable in preventing backache and neck pain. Ensure that the workstation is ergonomically set: your computer monitor is at eye level, the chair supports your lower back, and your feet are flat on the floor. You can use a lumbar support cushion if needed.6. Hand Sanitizer and Disinfectant WipesOffices can be an ideal place for viruses. Keep some hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes near you at your desk. Clean your keyboard, mouse, and even the phone regularly to minimize the chance of sickness.7. Adjust Your Screen SettingsProper screen settings can reduce eye strain significantly. Ensure your monitor is at eye level to avoid neck strain and adjust the brightness and contrast to a comfortable level. Use an anti-glare screen if necessary, and ensure your screen's text size is large enough to read without squinting. These adjustments can help protect your vision and reduce discomfort.8. Try Desk ExercisesYou don't have to go to a gym to stay active. Some simple desk exercises at your desk, such as leg raises while sitting, shrugging of shoulders, and chair squats, will keep your muscles active. You can do them inconspicuously, and they are quite instrumental in helping you maintain your physical health.9. Stress ManagementChronic stress may have serious medical effects. Find ways to help you deal with stress in the office: breathing exercises, meditation, or just a few minutes to relax and clear your mind. Stress management is key to having a healthy mind and body.10. Stay Socially EngagedSocial interaction can have enormous effects on your overall well-being. Take a little time out to just be social with your fellow colleagues, attend office functions, and grow a network of positive people around you. Positive social interactions will help in reducing stress, boosting morale, and enjoying the work more.  

Myth-Busting: Active Senior Living Communities

What if you could live in a community that is designed to support your active lifestyle, overall health, and well-being with resources right at your fingertips? What if you could say goodbye to shoveling snow in the winter, mowing the lawn in the summer, and home maintenance chores all year long? This can all be yours when you make the choice to live in an active senior living community. And dont believe the myths it can be one of the most liberating and exciting times in life, especially now with all the current options available.Unlike in our parents time, today there are vibrant independent living options that actually enhance your lifestyle with resort-like amenities, resources, and a community of like-minded people. Its a far cry from when nursing homes were the only option for older adults who wanted a maintenance-free lifestyle with assistance if needed.A new era of community living became prevalent for older adults in the early 1960s when the demand for more options for older adults started shifting. Now communities from coast to coast offer amenities and opportunities that maintain active lifestyles and social engagements that make these communities appealing to many older adults.Debunking the Myths About Active Senior Living CommunitiesThinking of senior living communities in the same breath as nursing homes is so last century and couldnt be further from reality. Lets debunk a few of the myths about retirement communities:Myth #1: Does moving to a retirement community mean I will lose independence?Fact: Depending on the community, many have different styles of living from completely independent to more support levels if needed. Todays retirement communities are designed to create independent living options in order to meet the needs of this generations active lifestyle. Holly Creek offers options of stand-alone cottages and individual apartments where you are free to live as you wish and participate in events, dining and other social engagements when and if you choose.Myth #2: Is retirement living boring?Fact: Almost all senior living communities offer a variety of events that you can choose to participate in. In some cases, the residents create the calendar and events and in others, staff put together activities based on residents interests. When you dont have to spend time and energy on home maintenance chores, you can fully enjoy current interests and perhaps gain new hobbies while meeting new friends. In fact, moving to senior living is one of the best ways to help older adults prevent boredom and avoid social isolation. Holly Creek has so many opportunities, it might be a challenge to fit in all the activities you like, from enjoying the indoor/outdoor pool or fitness center to visiting the theater and art gallery to taking part in exercise classes.Myth #3: Is retirement living for people too old to live on their own?Fact: Older adults are increasingly embracing the idea of living in active senior living communities. According to USA Today, more than 600,000 older Americans like the idea of getting settled in a community and staying there if their care needs change. While there is no magic age to transition to a senior living community, there are some benefits to making the move while you are able to enjoy the amenities and activities offered in a retirement community. In addition, moving sooner will allow you to maintain living independently, but get adjusted to the community environment and be in the company of others.
