Getting Medicare Food Benefits

As people age, accessing healthy meals can become more challenging. According to Feeding America, one in five older adults was food-insecure in 2020. Some older adults struggle with affording healthy foods, whereas others have difficulty going to the grocery store and preparing meals when recovering from an illness or injury. Although original Medicare does not offer food benefits, some Medicare Advantage plans provide a grocery allowance or cover meal delivery. Some programs also include nutrition education and cooking classes. Certain Medicare Advantage plans may provide Part C food benefits in addition to Part A hospital, Part B medical, and Part D prescription drug coverage. They may also supply vision, dental, and hearing coverage. The Medicare Advantage plans available to you depend on your state. Medicare AdvantageMedicare Advantage differs from traditional Medicare, as private companies contract with Medicare to offer Medicare Advantage plans. Plans vary, and finding insurance that fits your unique needs is essential. Potential enrollees should also be wary of predatory marketing practices and evaluate their options before committing to a plan. Even if you qualify for a Medicare Advantage plan with food benefits, traditional Medicare could be a better option for you, depending on your circumstances. Special Needs Plans Special needs plans, which tailor membership to beneficiaries who meet specific criteria, offer grocery and meal benefits options. Qualifying for grocery benefits through a special needs plan generally requires an individual to have an underlying condition. Examples of conditions that can qualify a person for Medicare Advantage food benefits include diabetes, cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, end-stage renal disease, arthritis, an autoimmune disorder, and obesity. Grocery BenefitsWhen Medicare Advantage plans have grocery benefits, they typically give beneficiaries a card that they can use to check out at approved stores like Kroger and Walmart.The benefits only cover whole foods such as vegetables, legumes, meat, and dairy, as well as pantry staples and water. Only covered food items can go on the card. Enrollees must pay out of pocket for soda, baked goods, and processed foods like chips. Meal Delivery Services Instead of grocery benefits, some Medicare Advantage Part C plans cover meal delivery services. Meal delivery services can benefit those who face challenges getting to the grocery store and preparing meals. A service must meet Medicares nutritional guidelines for Medicare Advantage to cover it. Many Medicare Advantage plans only supply meal delivery for a set period. This type of plan can suit those discharged from a hospital or skilled nursing facility who only need help with meals for a set time. Less common is long-term meal delivery coverage for those homebound with chronic medical conditions.Other Meal Delivery OptionsFor older adults who do not qualify for a special needs program with meal benefits or who do not elect to enroll in original Medicare, alternative meal resources are available. Meals on Wheels is a federally funded meal delivery program for people aged 60 and above who meet location-specific eligibility requirements. You use the Administration for Community Livings Elder Care Locator to find meal delivery organizations. Speak with us to access your options before selecting a Medicare Advantage program with grocery or meal benefits.

Wandering Prevention: Less Stress, Anxiety and Fear For All

Wandering is one of the most dangerous and scary issues associated with dementia. You can decrease the chances of wandering by focusing on triggers and creating a safe environment. This can mean less stress, anxiety and fear for all.Facts about wandering:       It can happen in ANY stage of the disease.       A person who has wandered once is at increased risk for it to happen again.       The best wandering prevention is before a wandering incident ever occurs.Causes, Triggers and Warning Signs for Wandering:       Boredom, restlessness and a lack of physical activity.       Frustration or anger with their caregiver, feeling the need to get away from them.       Feeling that they need to get home though they are home.       Not being able to find someone, something, or someplace.       Trouble finding the bathroom and opening an exterior door.       Delirium or confusion from a UTI or dehydration.       A move to a new, unfamiliar location.       A person who is high energy and constantly moving.Wandering Prevention:       Physical and mental activities throughout the day to prevent that bored and restless feeling.       Be positive and reassuring so that you are not the reason they want to leave.       If they say, I want to go home, be comforting and reassuring rather than telling them that they are home.       Dont leave them alone.       Be sure their bodily needs are met Are they hungry or thirsty? Do they need to use the toilet?       Increase lighting. A shadowy house can feel unfamiliar.       Put bathroom signs on the bathroom door.       Put stop signs on the front door or cover them with a camouflage poster.       Install barriers and alarms on doors and windows.       Get a wearable GPS device.       Let your neighbors know your family member is a wandering risk. Editors Note:  This article was written by Amy Kowinsky, Executive Director of Dementia360.  Dementia360 is a Presbyterian SeniorCare Network support program for family caregivers of people living with dementia.

How Can You Transfer a Guardianship Between States?

When an incapacitated person cannot make personal or financial decisions, state courts may appoint a guardian to assist the individual with determining where to live, what kind of care to receive, or how to manage finances. In some cases, guardians may wish to move their ward someone whom a court has found need a guardians protection to another state for care. However, guardianship, as a matter of state law, doesn't automatically transfer across state lines. In many cases, to transfer a guardianship, guardians must petition the state where the ward currently lives and the state to which the ward is moving. This process can be complex, as each jurisdiction has rules regulating guardianship. Inconsistencies between states can create challenges. For instance, one state court may find that an incapacitated person needs a guardian, whereas another may disagree. Even after relocating, guardians may remain subject to the reporting requirements of the state in which the guardianship was initiated. The original state can retain jurisdiction if the guardian forgets to close the guardianship. Failing to comply with reporting requirements may cause legal problems, and the state may seek to remove the guardian. The Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction ActThe vast majority of states, as well as Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico, have adopted the Uniform Adult Guardianship and Protective Proceedings Jurisdiction Act (UAGPPJA), which has resulted in more efficient guardianship transfers. Individuals can request that the state where they plan to resettle the ward records the existing guardianship order. Once the UAGPPJA state records the order, it honors it, allowing the guardian to continue making critical decisions for the ward after the move. Nevertheless, even when states use the UAGPPJA, they implement it in various ways and have their own specific rules. Individuals seeking to transfer guardianships should consult an experienced attorney who can assist them with the process. When Is a Transfer Permissible? The UAGPPJA permits guardians to move wards across states when: Relocating is in the wards best interests, promoting the wards physical and mental well-being.The guardian has reasonable and acceptable plans for the wards care in the new home.No one opposes the transfer.The move is permanent; guardians cannot orchestrate temporary moves for convenience. Notice Requirement When guardians are first appointed, they must inform the close relatives of the incapacitated person, allowing them the option to contest the guardianship. This notice provision also applies to transfers: Guardians must inform close relatives when electing to take their wards to another state. Many guardianship transfers are uncontested. Should a wards relatives challenge a relocation, courts often will hold evidentiary hearings to decide whether the resettlement is legal. Although relocations can be complex, guardianships may transfer successfully when a move is uncontested and is in the wards best interests. If you're looking to transfer a guardianship to a new state, be sure to connect with a qualified elder law attorney for help.
