LETTERS: On Trump's speeches, helping seniors, 'jackass' pullquote and watching pets

Did you hear the same State of the Union Address that I did, Raoul Villarreal? You’re right that the Democrats could show their disapproval by staying seated, but how can a person be so heartless as to stay seated when the parents of slain children were introduced, or so petty when the young boy who put flags on the graves of veteran was introduced, or the couple who adopted the drug addict’s baby? Where is their compassion and love of country? Sorely lacking, I fear.

Aging in place: most seniors want to stay put

Retirement communities may have their perks, but Beryl O'Connor says it would be tough to match the birthday surprise she got in her own backyard when she turned 80 this year.

She was tending her garden when two little girls from next door — "my buddies," she calls them — brought her a strawberry shortcake. It underscored why she wants to stay put in the house that she and her husband, who died 18 years ago, purchased in the late 1970s.

"I couldn't just be around old people — that's not my lifestyle," she said. "I'd go out of my mind."

Research study, “Aging in Place in America,”

Senior citizens fear moving into a nursing home and losing their independence more than death, according to a new research study, “Aging in Place in America,”commissioned by Clarity® and The EAR Foundation, that examines the attitudes and anxieties of the nation’s elderly population. The children of Seniors also fear for their parents, with particular concern about their emotional and physical well-being should they have to enter a nursing home.

This is the third in a series of studies since 2003 commissioned by a partnership of Clarity and The EAR Foundation to better understand the health and lifestyle needs of America’s aging population. For “Aging in Place in America,” two groups were surveyed to allow a comparative analysis of the attitudes of Seniors age 65 and older who are living at home with those of Baby Boomers who have Senior parents.

Leaving Hospital, Older Patients Resist Home Help at their Peril

As many as 28 percent of patients offered home health care when they’re being discharged from a hospital — mostly older adults — say “no” to those services, according to a new report.

Understanding why this happens and what can be done about it is important — part of getting smarter about getting older.

Refusing home health care after a hospitalization puts patients at risk of a difficult, incomplete or slower-than-anticipated recovery. Without these services, older adults’ odds of being readmitted to the hospital within 30 or 60 days double, according to one study.
