Tips for discussing driving with a Senior Adult

Don’t wait until it’s too late to discuss senior driving with your loved one. If you notice your elderly parent is beginning to struggle when driving, do not hesitate to have the difficult conversation about driving safety and privilege. It is not a conversation anyone wants to initiate but better to discuss transportation needs before a personal injury or property damage accident occurs. Many factors of the aging process can affect driver safety. According to the Department of Motor Vehicles, some of the conditions that could make it difficult to operate a vehicle include: Arthritis, Diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Cataracts, Glaucoma, Macular degeneration, Dementia, Alzheimer's disease, Hearing impairments, or Seizures. Consider creating a driving plan prior to the actual act of license surrender. Allowing your loved one time to adjust by limiting driving prior to the actual loss of license may help. By discussing driving safety in a timely manner, your senior may be able to continue with modifications such as avoiding night driving, no expressway travel and setting appointments so as not to coincide with rush hour traffic. You may want to consider a ride along with your elderly driver occasionally to assess any changes or decline in driving ability. Be respectful of the fact that license surrender is a lifechanging event and be gentle but firm that the issue must be addressed for safety reasons. Suggest a consultation with your loved one’s physician to determine ways to improve driver safety such as medication changes or a new eyeglass prescription. Accompany your loved one to the appointment to ensure the issue of driver safety is addressed. If your loved one’s doctor determines that safety is an issue when behind the wheel be united in your assessment that giving up the car keys is best to ensure the safety of your loved one and the community. Focusing on safety issues when having the driving discussion will help your loved one to know your intentions are in his or her best interest. Be proactive and research alternate transportation availability such as your local office of the aging, various types of public transportation and other community resources such as friends, neighbors and church groups. Do promise to assist your loved one to access transportation and remain independent without promising to do all of the transportation yourself. It may be a larger commitment than you are able to sustain with the potential to create friction between you and your loved one. When having the driving discussion, be prepared with information on the next steps such as turning in license plates, cancelling auto insurance, and sale or transfer of the vehicle. Keep in mind the best time of day to have this talk with your loved one. For instance, if he or she is not a morning person do not have the conversation over breakfast, wait until your loved one is in a more receptive state of mind. Remember, you are being an advocate for your loved one, do not feel guilty having this difficult conversation as decreased ability is a natural progression as a person grows older.

Fall Prevention 2018

The first day of Fall is always designated as National Fall Prevention Awareness Day. On Saturday, September 22, 2018 Clinton Crest Manor planned activities to bring awareness to the benefits of fitness and ways to prevent falls. Rosanna Bates, Activities Director, and Terry Test, volunteer, created this year’s fall prevention awareness day program. Terry Test led the residents, families, volunteers and members of the board of directors in exercises that strengthen muscles and guard against falls. A game of musical chairs was played to practice the chair rise exercise in a fun manner. The game of Simon Says was also played, focusing on preventing falls. Information and statistics were provided by Kathy Swarthout, Yates County Public Health Educator. Everyone involved enjoyed the planned activities and were able to gain some knowledge regarding the importance of flexibility and mobility to reduce the likelihood of a fall.

Reminiscing at Clinton Crest Manor

Let us Reminisce Residents of Clinton Crest Manor were fortunate to once again have interactions with Keuka College students in a program that embodies Reminiscence Therapy. The principles of Reminiscence Therapy are primarily focused on storytelling. Both “60 Minutes” and “The Today Show” recently aired segments about the remarkable benefits of Reminiscence Therapy for older adults designed to minimize and even delay the onset of Dementia. In addition to “The Keuka Authors’ Project” with Dr. Jennie Joiner, Associate Professor of English at Keuka College, Associate Professor of Occupational Therapy Dr. Kristen Bacon, included in her class a session in which students interviewed residents of Clinton Crest providing another occasion to reminisce. The Keuka College Occupational Therapy students had a chance to practice real world interviewing experiences wherein they were able to put principles learned in the classroom to the test using both formal interview techniques and casual conversation. The residents spoke of their occupational history and experiences, interests, values and needs during the client-centered interview. In accordance with the benefits that this type of therapy provides to delay the onset of Dementia, the students then presented each participating resident with a “memory gift” symbolic of the life experiences shared during the interviews. For one resident it was a framed collage of pictures and reminders depicting memorable life events, for another a keepsake shadow box. For each resident, the memory gift is an item to be treasured and shared. Each retelling of the time spent ruminating with a Keuka College student continues the benefit of Reminiscence Therapy through story-telling. The entire staff of Clinton Crest Manor is eternally grateful to Dr. Kristen Bacon, her students, and Keuka College for the continued devotion to the residents. We all look forward to many more years of enjoying the benefits of reliving the past through storytelling activities.

Reminiscence Therapy at Clinton Crest Manor

If you watched “60 Minutes” or “The Today Show” recently you may have watched a segment about Reminiscence Therapy for older adults. These reports described the remarkable benefits of this type of therapy designed to minimize or even delay the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia. Reminiscence therapy is defined by the American Psychological Association as "the use of life histories – written, oral, or both – to improve psychological well-being”. Reminiscence therapy is primarily focused on storytelling. Outcomes include increases in life satisfaction, self-esteem, positive affect and mood, happiness, well-being and socialization writes Eleanor O’Leary & Nicola Barry in the Journal of Social Work Practice, 2008. Clinton Crest Manor has been utilizing Reminiscence Therapy for several years in conjunction with Dr. Jennie Joiner, Associate Professor of English at Keuka College. Dr. Joiner’s students meet with the residents of Clinton Crest to talk about past events and life experiences. These sessions last several weeks and the residents and college students get a great deal of satisfaction from the encounters. This program is called “The Keuka Authors’ Project” and all of the stories are then put into a lovely publication, including photographs of the students and residents titled “Who is Penn Yan?”. The bound copies are then presented to each resident of Clinton Crest Manor enabling them to continue to relive these important events as they are forever saved in print. Dr. Joiner created this program as an experiential learning opportunity for her students several years ago and college students have also been paired with fourth-graders at Penn Yan Elementary School in previous years. Dr. Joiner wants to have the college students interact with the local community and forge a connection with local residents. The deep connection made between the students and the residents is evident when hearing the buzz of conversation, and occasional laughter as the interviews take place in the dining room at Clinton Crest Manor. As the conversations progress any generational differences fall away and fast friendships develop between the participants. The reliving of important life events brings smiles and moments of clarity to the residents as they share their stories with the younger students representing a future generation. Ms. Terry Test, retired teacher at Penn Yan Elementary School initiated this program as a volunteer at Clinton Crest Manor. The entire staff and residents are eternally grateful to both Dr. Joiner and Ms. Test for their devotion to this program as we look forward to many more years of “Who is Penn Yan?”

What is Elder Abuse?

What is Elder abuse? Elder abuse can include physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, exploitation, neglect, or abandonment. Perpetrators include children, other family members, spouses, neighbors, in home aids, as well as staff at nursing homes, assisted living, and other facilities. Elder abuse occurs in all parts of the state –urban and rural – among all ethnic, economic and social groups. The most common form of elder abuse reported is financial exploitation. Only 1 out of 24 cases is reported to Adult Protective Services, law enforcement or other agencies that can help. Approximately 1 in 10 Americans aged 60+ have experienced some form of elder abuse. Some estimates range as high as 5 million elders who are abused each year. Abusers are both women and men. In almost 90% of elder abuse and neglect incidents, the perpetrator is a family member. Two thirds of perpetrators are adult children or spouses. There are steps you can take if you suspect someone is being abused. Most importantly—Be Alert! The suffering is often in silence. If you notice changes in an older adult’s personality, behavior or finances, you should start to question what is going on. Remember, it is not your role to verify that abuse is occurring, only to alert others of your suspicions. It is best to take any step of action and have it be found that no abuse is happening than to not report it and the risk the chance of the abuse continuing. For details and more information elder abuse: Pro Action Yates Office for the Aging & Yates Department of Social Services developed a Special Edition Elder Abuse 8/16 Newsletter funded through an Elder Abuse Educational and Outreach grant from NYS Office for the Aging through Lifespan of Greater Rochester . The newsletter is accessible at the following website: or by contacting Becky Bennett-Tears at Pro Action Yates Office for the Aging at 315-536-5515.

Resident Mary Boye wrote a poem about falling for fall prevention awareness day!

“Falling” By Mary Boye So you think you are strong – I may prove you wrong – That walker is for walking – So hold it real firm – Toss that throw rug out – That sits in the hall – You may trip on it – And take a fall – So the stairs are too steep – For you to climb – Take one at a time – If you don’t – you may fall back on your spine – Remember God is watching for us all – So be careful in all things – The big and the small.
