EP126: Nurse Innovation: NICHE with Mattia Gilmartin PhD, RN

MelissaBPhD's podcast

America is getting older, and as people age, their bodies change. They're likely to have multiple chronic illnesses, and when they come into hospital care—that can be a vulnerable time.  Considering that almost 60% of hospital beds are occupied by adults aged 65 and over, receiving specialized geriatric care in the healthcare system is critical. Learn with us today on This Is Getting Old as we explore how to make the world more age-friendly. Mattia Gilmartin, PhD, RN, is joining us. She will share her insights into NICHE—an incredible program that equips nurses and caregivers with the skills necessary to provide superior care for older adults.  Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ What is the NICHE Program? Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) is on a mission to revolutionize nursing care for elderly patients, bringing positive change and patient-oriented practices into the capabilities of healthcare facilities.  NICHE's ultimate goal is to ensure that all seniors age 65+ receive top-notch medical attention - because everyone deserves to be treated with respect as they age. NICHE focuses on the risks older adults might face when they come to a hospital. The program helps nurses be on the lookout for those risk factors and ensure that older adults do not experience those risks during their hospital stay. For example, laying in a hospital bed for five days is dangerous because an older adults function will go down. So in a NICHE hospital, nurses ensure that older adults are out of bed and moving around. ✔️ The Nuts And Bolts Of The Niche Program The NICHE Program offers the guidelines, materials, and resources needed to encourage a change in healthcare organizations' organizational cultures and provide patient-centered care for older adults. It has several advantages for institutions and is cost-effective and comprehensive: better clinical results favorable financial results improved nursing capabilities community acceptance increased satisfaction of the staff, family, and patients NICHE gives hospitals access to: Modern resources, including an interactive 24/7 E-learning center, tools, and training Support and coaching for NICHE-based hospital initiatives in project management Clinical procedures supported by evidence that address "never occurrences," Joint Commission compliance, and other legal requirements Instrument for Geriatric Institutional Assessment (GIAP) Information, knowledge, and skill sharing ✔️ How To Join The NICHE Program? NICHE work with hospitals—mostly.  We have about 20 nursing homes that also participate in the program, and the team at NYU works with nurse leaders at the member sites to help them implement our model of care. However, NICHE has been thinking about transitions of care that go smoothly and anticipate people's needs. We also work with family caregivers so that loved ones who might be caring for older adults also know what to do and feel confident in their role and what the health system asks them to do.  You can check out the NICHE membership page if you're interested in joining.  ✔️ What Are NICHE's Benchmarking Procedures? By leveraging the knowledge in our university, community and small hospitals network, we provide specialized support for local leaders striving to improve care for older adults.  Additionally, through a recognition program based on excellence and achievement achieved by implementing models provided by us. We reward members across three levels - general membership level (base-level), senior-friendly level or exemplary performance with awards given accordingly.  ✔️ NICHE and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Payments There's lot of innovation in healthcare, but payment is one of the biggest barriers. There's also the issue of hospitals being willing to invest in making changes in care and putting in change to improve the quality of care. More hospitals see the value of geriatric-specific services, so they are getting pressure to improve care, be more efficient with their resources, and have a better patient experience. For most older adults, when receiving NICHE services, the Medicare program is paying for that. Medicare has started thinking more about the value and wants more quality for the beneficiaries.   ✔️ How To Find NICHE Members Or Units?  NICHE is a voluntary program, and only some hospitals are doing this, even though it should be the standard of care. For consumers, here are some of the places where you can look: NICHE has a marketing kit that the members use. So you might look on the hospital website, usually where they have nursing awards, If the hospital offers geriatric services, you can check what they're participating in Sometimes there are announcements in the newspaper If a hospital has a newsletter, they might have some announcements and publications that they're recognized as NICHE members. NICHE also have a certificate. So another place to look is in the hospital, where they might display their awards.  You can ask when you're being admitted to the hospital, if the hospital's participating in a NICHE, or if they have units specifically designed for older adults.  You can also check the NICHE website. Down on the bottom, you can click and find the location to see the list of current members.  Sometimes NICHE nurses have a role called the geriatric resource nurse. The nurses wear pins on their badges that show they are a member. ✔️ Are You Up For The NICHE Challenge? Hospital care shouldn't end upon discharge. There should be a follow-up where someone calls it, checking to ensure that home health shows up. But the ball gets dropped, so care ends the minute they roll you out the front door. The NICHE program helps people who don't have this background or the vision that care should continue at the door. It must carry over to the home to ensure people fully recover and do not have negative outcomes.  If you say YES to specialized geriatrics care and want to learn more about bringing that to their hospital, or even as a consumer who has consumer-driven care—check out the NICHE website and connect with their representative.  --------------------- Helpful Links To Connect With NICHE: Websites: Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) NYU, Roy Myers College of Nursing Phone: 212-998-5445 Fax: 914-612-9168 Post: 380 2nd Ave. Suite 306 New York, NY 10010 Email: support@nicheprogram.org Facebook: Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) LinkedIn: Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) ✔️ Register For The 2023 NICHE Conference In New Orleans The two-and-a-half-day NICHE Conference in 2023 will focus on clinical advancements and fresh research in the treatment of older adults.

EP125: Financial Caregiving Series: Top Conversations to Have—Scammers with Cameron Huddleston

Crooks exploit these vulnerabilities but make no mistake: All of us — young and old — are susceptible to the bad actors who show up uninvited in calls, emails, mail, texts and social media accounts. Some are so bold as to knock on our front doors. Everyone wants to protect their loved ones, and Cameron Huddleston offers the perfect solution—a journey into This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards An Age-Friendly World. So tune in now for all those practical tips you need as I talk with my guest, Cameron Huddleston. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ How To Recognize A Scam? Scams tend to have certain red flags, and whatever the story might be, they usually come back to a one thing— an urgent request for money. Use the Scam RED Flags to learn more about the  telltale signs of scams. ✔️ What Are the Most Common Forms of Payment Requested Gift Cards Peer-to-Peer payments (eg. Venmo, Zelle, PayPal, etc.) ✔️ What Are the Different Types of Scams In 2021, scammers stole over $6 billion from Americans—this is happening all the time. If you're over the age of 80, the number one way they will get in touch with you is through your landline. The second contact method is through social media, and if you're between 60 and 69, it's highly likely that you're going to be contacted through social media. Any time somebody asks you for money—that's a red flag. Common types of scams among older adults are:      Government Imposter Scams     Identity Theft     Business Impersonation & Shopping Scams     Robocalls/ Unsolicited Calls     Health Care & Health Insurance Scams     Sweepstake & Lottery Scams     Tech Support & Computer Scams     Romance Scams     Financial Services Impersonation & Fraud   Grandparents Scams/ Person-in-Need ✔️ How to Protect Yourself From Scams? Don't trust people who were not involved in your life and now are suddenly there. Now that you are older and perhaps need care, make sure you've already named that financial power of attorney to ensure your bank and other financial institutions know who that person is.  Also, it would be best to observe the following; Don't answer a call from an unknown number; if you do, hang up immediately. Be aware that your Caller ID showing up as a local number doesn't necessarily mean it's a local caller. Do not respond to any questions asked by a stranger on a call If you answer the phone and the automatic message wants you to press a button to stop getting the calls, just hang up. Scammers often use this to identify potential targets. Do not respond to any requests via social media  ✔️ Helpful Resources The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has resources for protecting older adults against fraud and a guide called Money Smart for Older Adults Help your senior loved one get on the national “Do Not Call” registry Reporting fraud against you or anyone you know that has been a victim of fraud by calling the US Senate Special Committee on Aging's Fraud Hotline Monday-Friday 9am to 5pm EST at 1-855-303-9470; or email them at https://www.aging.senate.gov/fraud-hotline Learn more by accessing the 2021 Top Scams Report If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

Taking care of legal matters before a crisis helps ensure that you, not lawyers or courts, remain in control – it may even save countless disagreements further down the line. Make sure these essential legal documents don't cause wrinkles in your plans by tuning into This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards An Age-Friendly World and my guest this week, Cameron Huddleston. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️Estate Planning, Advance Care, and End-of-Life Planning—It's  Not Just Something For The Rich When people hear the term estate planning or end-of-life planning, legal documents, people often think, well, this is something that rich people do. I don't need to worry about an estate plan because I don't have an estate. An estate is really just a fancy word of saying your property, your belongings, and your assets. If you die without a will, state law will determine who gets your assets. That means your things might go to someone you don't want to receive those things, or it also might mean that your property needs to be divided up – and it may not be divided in the way you wanted it to be.  ✔️ Understanding Power of Attorney  You want to get the Power of Attorney (POA) document right because this gives someone permission to manage your finances. You want to make sure you're giving them the right permissions. You want to have an attorney sit down and discuss what powers you want to give that person and make sure it complies with your state law. There are different types of power of attorney—you can have general or limited durable or springing power of attorney.  General or Limited Durable POA General or Limited Durable POA might be, for example, you're going out of the country, and you need someone to sign some real estate papers for you so you can designate someone as your limited power of attorney who can only sign documents related to real estate for you,  Springing POA Springing means that power of attorney will spring into effect when certain conditions are met. Typically people will say this will spring into effect if I am deemed mentally incompetent through a diagnosis of dementia or stroke.  But most estate planning attorneys and other law attorneys will discourage people from getting that springing power of attorney because it makes it much more difficult for that person you named as your agent to step in and help you. ✔️When and How to Access the Documents Copy for Medical Record Medical documents, including your Health Care Power of Attorney, your Living Will, and Advance Directives (including a Do Not Resuscitate document, if you have one) should be shared with all of your medical providers. You want your providers to have copies of those documents in your . medical chartThey're going to put it in your patient portal online so that if you are in the hospital and you don't want to be resuscitated, there is that documentation there that they can refer to and say, this patient doesn't want to be resuscitated, this patient doesn't want to be on life support, this patient has named their child as their health care proxy.  Original Copy for Executor (may need to be notarized) Giving the executor of your estate an original copy of your will is also a good idea.  Financial institutions will accept copies, but typically they want it to be a notarized copy. Or you could take the original to the bank. They will make a copy of it and keep it in the files. But if you're even if you trust your power of attorney 100%, you're still feeling a little anxious about handing over that power. Hang onto the document yourself and put it someplace safe in a home safe.  Remove all documents from the home if an outside caregiver comes into the home A word of caution here to family caregivers—if you're caring for an aging parent and you're putting outside caregivers in that home with that person, you need to be aware that you need to remove all financial paperwork so that fraud or elder financial abuse doesn't happen. ✔️ Authorizations When it comes to government agencies, a POA is not enough. Several of them have their own paperwork that has to be filled out.  Medicare Representative Designee/ POA If you are caring for an aging parent and have to help manage their Medicare benefit, to get on the phone and talk to someone within the Medicare agency, you're going to have to be designated as your parent's Medicare representative. Go online and get the form, and if you have already been named power of attorney, then you can fill out that form and sign it as your parent's power of attorney. Social Security Administration  If you have to manage a parent's Social Security benefits, you must be designated as your parent's Social Security representative payee. This would be best to go to your local Social Security Administration office and sit down with someone there and go through the process of filling out the paperwork, showing that power of attorney document. Other responsibilities come with that, so you have to file an annual report with the Social Security Administration detailing how you manage your parent's benefits and how you spent those benefits for your parent. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to sign tax returns IRS has a form you must fill out to be designated as your parent's agent. You need to read the instructions carefully, and you will also submit that power of attorney document when you send in the tax return and the additional IRS form.  Name a Trusted Contact with financial institutions It's also good to name a trusted contact with your financial institutions. Some will ask for it, and some won't. Still, you can go ahead and say, “Hey, can I name a trusted contact? This is someone your financial institution can reach out to if you can't reach me or if it suspects that financial exploitation is going on.” It's just another way to protect yourself financially.  If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

As we age, we may need help managing our finances for a myriad of reasons – including cognitive decline. How to start that conversation with an adult child may be challenging for both parties, but it's a critical conversation to have to prevent costly errors or even losses along the way. Ready to tackle the difficult conversations about money with your adult children? This episode of This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards An Age-Friendly World will help smooth out any wrinkles in those talks, thanks to Cameron Huddleston's sage advice. Get ready for an enlightening chat - and a sigh of relief. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ When To Have The Conversation? Cameron Huddleston, author of “Mom and Dad, We Need to Talk” and award-winning journalist with 20 years of experience writing about personal finance, suggests that the best time to have this financial management conversation is when you are healthy and relatively young. “Having this conversation in your fifties with your 20-something or early 30-something children is a great idea,” Cameron said. ✔️ What Information To Share? If you have named one of your children as your Power of Attorney—meaning they have the right to make financial decisions in transactions for you once you're no longer able to - that person needs to have a good idea about the details of your finances. Your child needs to know: -Where you bank -Be able to access those bank account(s) to pay the bills.  -How they must pay for care if you need long-term care. -If there is still a mortgage or other types of debt. -Your account numbers, usernames, and passwords—they need it all. ✔️ Completing the In Case of Emergency Organizer In Case of Emergency Organizer is a valuable tool that compiles all that information, including Social Security and Medicare numbers, health insurance policy number, life insurance; all of your financial accounts, the usernames, the passwords ✔️ Think Of It As A Gift Think of it as a gift to the people you are leaving behind—to have this information organized so that they don't have to play detective, and it won't be even more difficult for them. ✔️ Creating And Coordinating Your Circle Identify those trusted family members early on. If you don't have children you trust, identify someone else. Maybe it's a niece or a nephew, or a family friend. You've got to have someone you trust who can be there for you if you need help with finances as you get older. If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  --------------- About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

Money's a taboo topic that no one wants to touch, but when it comes to our aging parents – let's face it – we all have to tiptoe around the bank account. Ignoring those chatty conversations about financial security with Mom and Dad could put us in an awkward spot down the line if they need assistance managing their money or require help making decisions.  If you're looking for the scoop on your parents' finances, pick out a box of icebreakers with extra care! Your intention to gain insight may be sincere, but without a tactful approach, it could quickly come off as greedy or intrusive. Don't break the conversational barrier only to have them freeze up - otherwise, future discussions might suffer from permanent frostbite. Money talk doesn't have to be scary—it can actually become part of your routine. If you're looking for the perfect conversation starter, consider the following tips from the author, speaker and award-winning journalist with 20 years of experience writing about personal finance, Cameron Huddleston Tune in to this episode of This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards an Age-Friendly World, and with Cameron Huddleston's advice, you and your aging parents will feel more secure every time money's brought up. So take a deep breath…and get talking. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ Signs That Parents Need More Help With Finances Cameron Huddleston, author of “Mom and Dad, We Need to Talk”, shared her personal experience of how she had plenty of opportunities to have financial conversations but never realized it was a conversation she needed to have with her mom until she saw that she needed help with her finances. “It was initially pretty easy to ignore the signs that she was experiencing memory loss because she had hearing loss. When she would ask a question, and I would answer her, and she would ask it again, I would tell myself, Oh, it's because she didn't hear my response.” Cameron shared.  “That went on for several months, maybe even a year. But it was when I was visiting her one evening, and she asked me if I wanted to go see a bench that she had bought for her back patio. So we went, looked at the bench, and came back inside, and a few minutes later, she asked me again, "Do you want to see the new bench I just bought?” continued Cameron. At that very moment, her heart sank because she knew what happened was not a hearing issue. Her mom had forgotten they had just gone outside and looked at her bench. That's the time Cameron knew that there was something clearly wrong.  ✔️ Do's And Don't During Money Talks What you don't want to do is put your parent on the defensive, “Hey, mom, you're forgetting things, so that means I need to be managing your finances for you.”   She still remembers many things, so if you tell her that she cannot handle her finances, you will likely put her on the defensive. She's going to shut down. She's going to push you away—you have offended her.  Instead, you will want to look for tasks that your parent needs the most help with. It will most likely be avoiding scams because if they're experiencing memory loss, their financial decision-making ability is impacted. They're at a much greater risk of being scammed.  Also, paying bills because if there is memory loss, they're probably having trouble staying on top of their finances and making bill payments on time, or maybe they're paying the bills twice.  It's as simple as saying to them, “Hey, you know, I have found that a great timesaver for me having my bills set up to be paid automatically. Would you like me to help you do that?”  So then you're going to sit down with them at a computer, and you're going to log into those accounts.  ✔️ With Many People Reluctant To Talk About Money - How To Start The Conversation? Getting that third party involved is essential if you have a parent reluctant to let you get involved. Maybe it's the doctor, a lawyer, or a financial adviser. So maybe you notice that your parent is experiencing memory loss, and you go with your parent to a doctor's visit where your parent is examined. There are tests that are done, and there comes back a diagnosis of some form of dementia. If you're there in the doctor's office with your parent, ask a question that you want to ask. “Okay. Mom has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. Does that mean she will need help with money matters now?” “What sort of assistance is she going to need?”  Ask those questions to the doctor so that the doctor—the third party—tells the parent, “Because you have dementia now, your financial decision-making ability is impacted.”  ✔️ Tips On How To Start It Right When Having Financial Conversations Ideally, you should have a financial conversation before there are any health issues— before there's an emergency because banks and other financial institutions, even though they're not supposed to, can make it difficult for caregivers to get involved with their loved ones finances, even if they had that legal document. There are a variety of ways that you can bring it up:  You can simply ask about what-if scenarios, what if something were to happen? What if you were in the hospital, and I needed to make sure your bills were getting paid? How would I do that? Are your bills being paid automatically, or are you writing checks every month? That's really a simple way to start the conversation.  Or maybe you tell your parents, “Look, I just, you know, I just got a new life insurance policy”, or “Hey, I found this really awesome retirement savings calculator online, and I realized it wasn't saving enough for retirement.” And so the conversation starts by asking them about their retirement. You know, how did you plan for your retirement? Did you have a retirement savings account, or are you getting a pension? Is it just Social Security, or if they haven't retired yet, what are your plans for retirement? You can ease your way into the conversation.  You can share a story about someone you know who had to get involved with their parent's care, maybe someone who lost a parent. They didn't have a will, which created all sorts of headaches for the family members who were left behind. And on top of that grief, they're dealing with the fallout from the parent's lack of financial planning. You can also start by warning them about scams, “Hey, I just got a phone call from someone claiming to be at the IRS, and they told me that I had to pay back taxes, I had to get a gift card to make this payment. I just want you to know that this is a common scam.” So you're going to share scam red flags with them. You share articles with them, and then you encourage them to set up some account monitoring on their account.   ✔️ What Lesson Did Cameron Learn From All This?— You Don't Have To Play Detective Cameron's mom had this one investment account and was already in a memory care facility.  So her mail was coming to Cameron, and she got a notice from this company saying that her account was going to be turned over to the state for lack of activity, and there was $50,000 in this account that she never knew even existed. If she had sat down with her mom while she was healthy to get a list of her accounts,  Cameron wouldn't have almost lost $50,000 of her mom's money. “The biggest lesson I learned is that I should have had conversations with her while she was still healthy because I had to play detective. I had to figure out what accounts she had—and it was difficult,” Cameron shared.  If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  -------------------- About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

With the holiday season upon us, many may be looking forward to traditions that will bring joy and warmth - but if your family member is living with Alzheimer's or related dementia, this time can become overwhelming. If you are a caregiver, take care of yourself and allow yourself to maintain the traditions you can and not feel bad if you can't do everything you usually would. 'Tis the season for creating new memories and cherishing old ones! We can all be part of a treasured tradition: togetherness. Time spent with friends and family can become even more meaningful when modified to accommodate a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer's. Whether it be adapting existing holiday traditions or starting from scratch - just remember that joy is still possible during those special moments no matter what stage of the disease they are in. In today's episode of This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards An Age-Friendly World,  I'll share three tips for enjoying all the festive moments while being mindful of our loved ones with Alzheimer's disease.  So take a moment away from wrapping gifts and baking pies (or whatever it is you're doing) to refresh yourself on how the best caregivers, like yourselves, should manage things so that everyone in your household gets what they need! Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ Tip #1: Visits or Family Gatherings—Find the Right Balance  When planning holidays around those living with Alzheimer's disease, work around the person living with dementia's schedule and adjust expectations Think about the best time of day to do your gathering, the number of people to invite and think about the person living with Alzheimer's disease. Are they still comfortable socializing, or do a lot of people and increased noise just increase their anxiety or agitation?  That happens to any of us. If you're used to living in a very quiet environment, you're put into one with a lot of noise and activity. It can make anyone anxious. So just keep that in mind.  More importantly, think about location, like should you have this event in your own home or go to where that person lives? If they're in the facility or nursing home and then be sure that you communicate with your family and friends about the expectations, the person's preferences and abilities at this time.  ✔️ Tip #2: Plan Activities Based On The Person Living With Dementia's Current Ability Making Sweet Memories: Cookies, Dementia and Tree Decorations! If you have a tradition of baking cookies, involve that person at the level they can participate. At each step in the process, give the person a role – such as stirring the cookie mix, adding ingredients, rolling the dough or decorating. If tree decorating is a tradition, depending on if the person can stand or not, give them an area of the tree to decorate – and don't get hung up on it being perfect. Their participation and inclusion should be the focus. ✔️ Tip #3: Gifts: For The Person Living With Alzheimer's Disease For giving gifts, they may need help with shopping and picking out gifts. But it's always important when you go to any type of event, and people are exchanging presents that we're all part of that and we have something to give.  When receiving gifts, be sure to communicate with family and friends about what the person can currently do, what they're currently interested in, and things that they need. So some ideas could be giving hand lotion, maybe giving them a family photo album. This labeled with names and dates and even little stories, or using technology to create a playlist of their favorite music.  So there are a lot of different gifts or different ways that you can handle the gift-giving and the gift-receiving that allows that person to be included. ✔️ Useful Resources You Can Check The Alzheimer's Association website offers tips and strategies to help with the holidays, both for a person living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.    If you have questions or comments or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  ------------------- About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

EP121: Grief and Loss During the Holidays

MelissaBPhD's podcast

Many things count as grief and loss – from the actual death of a loved one to the loss of a significant relationship. As cliché as it may sound, there's not one way to deal with grief and loss during the holidays. We've all just lived through a pandemic that took a lot of lives and loved ones away from us. As the holidays approach, it may be more challenging to deal with the celebrations—decorating, maintaining or foregoing family traditions, getting your shopping done, and deciding what holiday events you can handle. And it doesn't matter if this is your first holiday without a loved one or the 20th.  For caregivers, they face the double loss of the person they cared for and their role as a caregiver. They may need to talk about their losses, and these feelings may be positive or negative. I've heard grief described as being like the ocean with its waves that ebb and flow. Sometimes the water is calm, sometimes, it's overwhelming. And the healthiest response is going to be to learn to swim – rather than avoiding the water.  In today's episode of This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards an Age-Friendly World, I'll share four tips to help you learn to swim if you are experiencing feelings of grief and loss this holiday season. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ Tip #1: Take Good Care of You—Self-Care Is Not Selfish Be gentle with yourself. Give yourself permission to not do things that you don't feel like you can handle. Be in tune with your emotions and how you're feeling in the moment—be okay with it Make sure that you're planning healthy meals and eating good food that's healthy for you. See to it  that you're getting plenty of exercises, drinking plenty of water, and avoiding alcohol— that's going to make you sadder. Don't miss getting enough sleep. ✔️ Tip #2: Get Support—Cry, Laugh, or Get Mad—It's OK to Feel It All There may be different triggers to grief and loss, and you shouldn't feel like you have to stifle your emotions.  Set aside time to experience the range of emotions you may experience – from anger to sadness. You should be truthful about your feelings when asked, but be sure that you don't hurt the person doing the asking.  More importantly, release your emotions by watching a tear-jerker of a holiday movie – or one that makes you belly laugh. Both are fine and healthy ways to release normal feelings. ✔️Tip #3: Acknowledge and Honor The Loved One That You've Lost Create new traditions in memory of your loved one. You can donate to a cause they are passionate about, volunteer and donate your time, or plant a tree. Talking with close family and friends to reminisce and remember the person and good times with them can be helpful. You can also look at family photos, watch old movies and share stories of past holidays. ✔️Tip #4:Focus on What You Can Control—It's All About the Present None of us really can control when someone else dies or if they leave a relationship, or maybe we end the relationship. Stay focused in the moment and not get too caught up in the past and not worry too much about the future because that's why it's called the present. You can cook your favorite meals, eat your favorite foods, and then even journal about your thoughts and feelings might help you to ease out what's within your control and what's not. ✔️A Thing To Remember: There's No Right Or Wrong Way To Process Your Emotions Be sure that if you are grieving and need help, you find family and friends that you can turn to. But also realize that many people feel awkward if you try to share your feelings. It would be best to decide if that's a person that you can trust to handle your own emotions.  Furthermore, you can draw comfort from your own faith. You might need to try to find a support group or talk to a therapist or a grief counselor.    If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  ------------------------------------ About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

EP120: Aging Parents During Holiday Visits: 4 Things to Check

MelissaBPhD's podcast

Play Episode Listen Later Nov 22, 2022 5:17


For adult children who do not live close to their aging parents, the holidays can be a good time to visit to make sure things are good as they seem. In addition to staying connected throughout the year by phone or Zoom calls, a personal visit may give you more information that things are ok – or  confirm any suspicions you may have had that there is truly a problem. Many of these suspicions may be around whether or not your parent – or parents – are becoming more forgetful or if they are becoming more frail and unable to keep up with everything independently.  Some parents will ask for help if they recognize they are starting to struggle, but many aging parents will not want anyone to know because it means a potential threat to their independence and/or autonomy. The holidays create a time to get together, and it's an excellent opportunity for adult children to check in and see how their aging parents are really doing. In this episode of This Is Getting Old: Moving Towards An Age-Friendly World, I'll share with you four things to look for during your holiday visits this year that may be warning signs that you need to dig deeper to find out what's going on.  I will list them in order of least invasive to most invasive…and keep in mind that you do want to respect the dignity, privacy, and autonomy of your loved one – and these need to be investigated from a place of concern – not to undermine your parents. It's a thin line, so listen to your intuition if you suspect a problem and engage your loved one in the process as much as possible.  Open communication is always the best approach, and you are looking for differences from the last time you saw them. Key points covered in this episode: ✔️ Tip #1: Give Them a Hug Clues that things are changing aren't always visible from a distance, so a hug may tell you more without setting off any alarms that you're concerned about. ✔️ Tip #2: What's the Kitchen Look Like?  My Mom has always told me that the kitchen is the heart of the home. Think about what the kitchen has always looked like and compare any differences you see.  ✔️ Tip #3: Ask About Their Social Life If your parent - or - parents were always socially active – has that changed? And if it has, ask them why?  ✔️ Tip #4: Look For Any Visible Mail The mail may offer clues about how your parents are managing their bills or if they are being/ have been scammed.  ✔️ How To Catch More Flies With Honey? These four tips are a starting point for a conversation about how things are going at home – how they are really going.  Create a safe space to discuss what's concerning you and listen to the answers. One other thing my Mom taught me is that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar…so be kind, observant and listen. Also talk to other people close to them – friends, neighbors or other families who visit regularly. These signs could indicate a bigger problem, but get others involved to learn more about anything that concerns you before making an assumption that there is a memory or thinking problem.   ✔️ Additional Resources You can check out some of these related episodes: How To Talk To Someone You Think May Have A Memory Problem: https://melissabphd.com/ep-18-six-tips-for-talking-to-someone-you-think-has-a-memory-problem/ 10 Warning Signs of Alzheimer's Disease: https://melissabphd.com/ep-17-ten-signs-of-alzheimers-disease/ How Alzheimer's is Diagnosed?: https://melissabphd.com/ep-19-how-is-alzheimers-diagnosed/ If you have questions, comments, or need help, please feel free to drop a one-minute audio or video clip and email it to me at melissabphd@gmail.com, and I will get back to you by recording an answer to your question.  About Melissa Batchelor, PhD, RN, FNP, FGSA, FAAN: I earned my Bachelor of Science in Nursing ('96) and Master of Science in Nursing ('00) as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) from the University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) School of Nursing (SON).

Episode 119: Nurse Practitioner WeekAmy Arreaza is a family nurse practitioner who explains what this career is all about. She tells the history and the future of this profession.  By Amy Arreaza, FNP. Comments by Hector Arreaza, MD.Hector: When I moved to Utah from my home country, I went to a clinic to investigate why I was so fatigued. I wasn't a practicing physician at that time. I got seen by a family physician who was very brief and somewhat cold. During my follow-up appointment, I was attended to by a very pleasant lady doctor. She made good eye contact, smiled, and explained the results in a simple and easy way. In summary, my second visit was very enjoyable. Later, I learned that this lady was a nurse practitioner. I had no idea what it meant, but after many positive interactions, I became a fan of nurse practitioners in general. Today, I want you to learn more about this profession, and I invited my favorite nurse practitioner in the whole world, my wife Amy. Welcome, Amy Arreaza.Tell us who you are.Amy: First of all, thank you for inviting me to your podcast to talk about this wonderful profession. And second, I must reciprocate in kind, you are my favorite family physician. So, as you said, I am a nurse practitioner, but more specifically, I am a family nurse practitioner, or FNP for short. I've been an FNP for 14 years and currently work in central CA in a federally qualified health center as a primary care provider for the medically vulnerable.  Caring for this patient population is where my passion truly lies. What is a Nurse Practitioner?A nurse practitioner is an advanced practice registered nurse. This means they are RNs who have completed either a master's degree or a doctorate degree in nursing practice. With their extra education and training, they have similar job duties as a physician, and there is actually a lot of overlap in the roles of nurse practitioners and physicians. NPs' serve as primary care providers or as specialty care providers. They examine and assess patients' needs, order and interpret labs and imaging tests, diagnose disease, and provide treatment, which includes prescribing medication. In the United States, the scope of practice of a nurse practitioner is regulated by state law. As of this year, NPs have full practice authority in 26 states, the District of Columbia, and 2 US territories. This means that NPs can work independently in those states without the supervision of a physician. In the remaining states, NPs need to have a collaborative agreement with a physician or work under the supervision of a physician. How was this career created?Well, in the 1960s, Loretta Ford, a public health nurse in Colorado, recognized a deficit in health care in rural communities. She believed nurses could fill the healthcare gaps in rural America, and through the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education in Nursing, she was given an opportunity to help develop a specialized clinical curriculum for community health nurses.  In 1965, Loretta Ford joined forces with Dr. Henry Silver, a pediatrician, to create the first pediatric nurse practitioner program at the University of Colorado.  So, 57 years ago, the NP profession was created to help alleviate the physician shortage at that time. And today, with a continued shortage of physicians, the NP profession has become essential in meeting primary care needs across the United States. Hector: There are 24 states that still do not offer full practice authority to NPs. Those states are more likely to have “geographic health care disparities, higher chronic disease burden, primary care shortages, higher costs of care and lower standings on national health rankings.”Amy: That's right, research shows that states with full practice authority for NPs' rank highest in the nation for best access to care, while 9 of the bottom 10 states ranked as the least healthy states in the US have not yet granted NPs full practice authority.How do you become an NP?The first step in becoming an NP is to become a registered nurse with either an Associate's Degree or Bachelor's Degree in Nursing Science. You can then enroll in an associate's-to-master's degree NP program or a bachelor's to master's  degree NP program.  At the minimum, you must complete a Master of Science in Nursing (or MSN) Degree. However, you may choose to advance your education with a Doctorate of Nursing Practice (or DNP) degree.  After graduation, NPs take a national certification exam to get certification from the specialty board that oversees their practice area. For example, I graduated from the University of Utah family nurse practitioner program and then took the national Family Nurse Practitioner Certification Exam from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This makes me a board-certified FNP. How many kinds of NPs are there?There are multiple kinds of NPs. I am a family nurse practitioner, meaning I can treat patients from infancy through their golden years to the end of life. Many FNPs work in family practice clinics; however, FNPs have a broad scope of practice which makes them very versatile, and they can work in different specialty care clinics as well. For example, as an FNP, besides working in family practice, I have worked in wound care and in urgent care. FNPs work in cardiology, pulmonology, dermatology, orthopedics, and various other specialty clinics. NP programs are generally patient-population focused, so besides the family nurse practitioner program, there are Adult, Emergency Care, Gerontology, Pediatric, Neonatal, Nurse Anesthetist, Nurse Midwife, Psychiatric, and Women's Health nurse practitioner programs. How can IMG MDs become NPs?I understand that it can be very difficult for an international medical graduate to be able to practice as an MD in the United States. If an IMG is interested in becoming an NP, I would recommend that they look for a university nursing program that offers an accelerated RN option for those who already hold a bachelor's degree in another field, then find out if the program will accept their international bachelor's degree. They will most likely need to validate their international degree before applying to the accelerated RN program. After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, they could apply to a nurse practitioner program. Another option for IMGs is to look into physician assistant programs. Current statistics about NPs': In 2020, there are about 210,00-270,000 practicing NPs in the United States. The number of nurse practitioners is expected to grow in the following years by about 52% between 202 and 2030, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Currently, Americans make more than 1 billion visits to NPs'every year. The growth of NPs' is expected to address the current physician shortage.  Thank you, Nurse Practitioners.____________________________Conclusion: Now we conclude episode number 119, “Nurse Practitioner Week.” Amy Arreaza, FNP, explained the basics about Nurse Practitioners and how they contribute to the health of our patients.

EP119: Ten Things Older Adults Need to Know Before Elective Surgery

Over the past five years, more than 20 million Americans aged 65 and over had elective surgery. This number is expected to grow to more than 27 million by 2030. While elective surgery can be life-changing and even life-saving, it's not without its risks. There are many things to consider before elective surgery – from the cost of the procedure to who will provide caregiving afterwards during recovery. In addition to the normal conversations, exams, and tests that will be run to clear an older adult for surgery, there are ten additional things older adults and their families should know before heading into the Operating Room. Most surgical offices will require thorough lab work, along with heart, lung, and kidney function tests; but if you are over 65 years old or the loved one of someone who's going to have the elective surgery, be sure you—and those the surgical team — know the following because many of these have been linked to a higher risk of death or complications after an older adult has surgery. These recommendations are based on the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program and the American Geriatrics Society Developed Best Practice Guidelines recommend the following: Key points covered in this episode:  ✔️ #1: Know The Person's Pre-Surgery Cognitive Ability Though you may be an older adult, have been feeling great recently, and even played golf the day before surgery, things can take a turn for the worse post-operation. You can end up looking pretty sick to providers who don't know you—and due to pervasive ageism, health care professionals can unfortunately make an assumption that you have a cognitive impairment (when you don't!) You want to be sure that your surgical team knows what the person's cognitive ability was before the surgery ~ because you should return to baseline with your thinking.  ✔️ #2: Depressed Or Not? Depression has been associated with a higher likelihood of dying after surgery and more days in the hospital after surgery. It is essential that the surgical team understands what the person's emotional state was before surgery. Older adults may not want to talk about it, but if a loved one is going in for surgery, please ask: “Have you been feeling down or depressed lately?” ✔️ #3: Any Alcohol Or Substance Abuse/ Dependence Issues? While a glass of wine with dinner or a beer while watching the game may be part of your routine, there may also be some signs that alcohol use is more along the lines of alcohol dependency or abuse.  There are four questions that are asked, and we call it the CAGE questionnaire: C: Have you ever felt the need to Cut down on your drinking? A: Have you ever felt Annoyed by people criticizing your drinking? G: Have you ever felt Guilty about your drinking? E: Have you ever had an Eye-opener (a drink first thing in the morning) to steady your nerves or get rid of a hangover? Substance abuse isn't only about alcohol. It can includes taking other drugs. In either case, alcohol and substance misuse also puts the person at a higher risk for complications after surgery ✔️ #4: Know Your Risk Of Post-Surgery Delirium And How To Recognize It In A Loved One Delirium is a change in mental status, and people can fluctuate in and out of it. They may be confused at times and then clearheaded at other times in the same day. Being 70 or older and taking multiple medications increase a person's risk for delirium.  Before elective surgery, it is essential to let your loved one's surgical team know about any medications they are taking and if they have had issues with delirium in the past. The bottom line after surgery: If you have any feeling that your loved one “just isn't right”, mention it to their medical team because it needs to be investigated. ✔️ #5: Know Functional Status And History/ Risk Of Falls Can the person get dressed? Take a bath? Get out of a chair or the bed by themselves? Prepare own meals and/or do their own shopping ? Have you fallen in the past year? The answers to these questions give the surgical team a good idea of what level of care the person was prior to surgery and can discuss self-care goals post-surgery. The risk of falling also needs to be discussed. A history of falls or any current balance issues puts someone at a higher risk for complications after surgery. The surgical team can also administer the Timed Get UP and Go Test (TUG): This is when the older adult is asked to stand up from a chair, walk 5 or 6 feet, turn around and walk back to the chair, and sit down. Taking longer than 15 seconds to do this indicates an increased risk of falls. ✔️ #6: Is The Person Malnourished? Older adults can lose weight for many reasons: changes in taste, dentition issues, and inability to cook for themselves. But whatever the reason, malnutrition puts someone at a higher risk for complications after surgery. The best way to assess this is by asking if they had an unintentional weight loss of more than 10 pounds last year. A laboratory test of albumin and pre-albumin levels or calculating the Body Mass Index (BMI) based on Height and weight. It determines if a person is overweight or underweight, which can result in negative surgical outcomes.  ✔️ #7: What Is The Person's Frailty Score? One indicator of frailty is an unintentional weight loss of more than 10 pounds in the past year.  Another frailty indicator is decreased grip strength, which is the inability to open a jar of peanut butter or hold a cooking utensil.  Slow gait speed (walking) is another indicator. Self-reported poor energy or low endurance may also be seen. Or you may notice that they don't expend much energy during the week. So this is someone who may be doing a lot of sitting, and if they are up and walking, it will be slow. ✔️ #8: Take A Medication List With Diagnoses I recommend the Brown Bag Approach: bringing all medications in a brown paper bag to each appointment. This allows the clinician or surgical team to go through everything and ensure that each one is still indicated.  Put all ALL medications - vitamins, over-the-counter, and prescriptions -into a ‘Brown Bag' and take them all in to be reviewed with your provider. You should know the reason for taking each medication - the diagnosis it is treating. This allows the clinician to understand what other health problems the person may have and if any of those could interact with surgery or anesthesia.  Talk with your provider because any nonessential medications should be discontinued before surgery; know what medications can be taken on the day of surgery or be continued after surgery. It would also be best to review your medication list against the Beers Criteria and be sure every medication has a supporting diagnosis. Otherwise, work with your provider to discontinue it.  The bottom line: The more information the surgical team has, the better they can assess and plan for the surgery ✔️ #9: Treatment Goals And Expectations If a person thinks they will have a surgery to cure their pain and they don't get that result—that will be disappointing. So it's essential to manage expectations by getting a clear explanation of the goal(s) of surgery. The goal may be to decrease the pain but not necessarily get rid of it. It's also important to set realistic goals for post-operative function Be sure to have a discussion about the patient's preferences and expectations – and if there will be a need for rehabilitation after surgery, where is the preferred facility for that to take place, or can it be done at home? ✔️ #10: Take Paperwork: Who Will Be Involved In Care Take copies of any and all legal paperwork that you may need – this includes the person's advanced directive (code status: full code vs. no code) and who their designated decision-makers are in case they are needed – such as their healthcare power of attorney. Copies of these should also be in the person's medical record.

Joe Flores' podcasts are among the most popular on this show. He brings to the conversation his experiences as a nurse, nurse practitioner, legal nurse consultant, and attorney. Through this multi-faceted lens, he makes connections that others can't. Joe provides some very specific guidance to nurse practitioners, recommending that they carry occurrence-based insurance. He also recommends that having an understanding of why NPs get sued can help them to avoid this happening. As both an LNC and an attorney, Joe knows how lawyers think. LNCs should emphasize both that they can greatly facilitate an attorney's ability to bring justice for his or her client, and that utilizing an LNC's services can save both time and money. LNCs, because of their training in detailed analysis, can also uncover aspects of a case that an attorney won't see. He also shared his thoughts about the current state of nursing, pointing out that many people, especially people of color, who would like to enter the field of nursing, are unable to work their way through nursing school. Joe describes a nursing school in Texas which is addressing this issue by providing salaries for nursing students' clinical work. The final issue in the podcast addressed the great need for nursing instructors and educators. If you are an over-50 nurse, he hopes you will consider entering this field. You are greatly needed. Nurses, nurse practitioners, and LNCs know that the field of nursing is in crisis. We need to pay attention to visionaries like Joe Flores.

Obesity rates in America are on the rise, so the obvious solution is to start eating less and eating better. Simple, right?   Yeah, right. If only life were that simple.    Today's episode is a conversation with Chana Ganz, a family nurse practitioner. Chana is currently based in Israel, and spends her summers as a family and pediatric nurse practitioner in the US. Her year-round job is treating adult populations with acute and chronic conditions. Additionally, she's an intuitive eating counselor (yes, she has three jobs!).     This episode was born out of a conversation Chana and I had in response to an episode of Bari Weiss's Podcast, Honestly, entitled “Eating Ourselves to Death.” Bari is someone who I deeply respect– she's someone who's unafraid to say anything. Chana and I talk about what we agree and disagree with in the podcast episode, and answer questions about obesity in America, the diseases associated with obesity, and what the real answers may involve. We also talk about how intuitive eating plays a role in that.    They're important questions that I know you have … and that most people don't talk about.    Tweetable Quotes “As the voices of the external world get more and more manipulative and louder, the only way to fight that is to make our internal voices louder.” – Chana Ganz, FNP, RN   “You don't have to worry about all the information out there, all the manipulation out there, or the systemic failure out there.

Something D gets questions on constantly is her experience in the field of aesthetics; many people are looking to get out of the hospital and to learn about other options. So, this week, while Jac is roaming with the cows in no-wifi land, board certified FNP Vanna Padilla hops on the mic to talk all things dermatology and aesthetics. The two start by addressing the difference between derm and aesthetics, and Vanna then talks about what her patient population looks like, and how she found her way into derm after going to school to be an FNP. They also challenge the notion that this career is all “pretty and fun” as they discuss all the things that could go wrong in addition to the physical health benefits that can come from aesthetic procedures. They dive into the unique patient-provider relationship, and how it is important to them to speak up if something is not in a patient's best interest. They also get into different curriculum requirements for different routes within the field, Vanna's favorite thing to treat in office, and the importance of holistic approaches to patient care.
