Senior Connection’s
"Senior & Caregivers Conference & Expo"
Friday, October 16

I’m pleased to announce we’ll be holding our Senior Connection "Senior & Caregivers Conference & Expo" as a web-based virtual event, beginning Friday, October 16 at 10am.

Not quite sure what a Virtual Expo is?

We have created a special Senior Connection Expo website that has the look and feel of our regular Expos. There will be a booth for each company with a link to a 30-Second Introductory video where they’ll tell you who they are (so you’ll be able to put their smiling face with their company name). And there will be another link to their 5-Minute video where they’ll explain what products and services they offer. A Handout Button under each video will allow you to view and print out their Business Card and Brochure.

You can also go to the "Stage," where you’ll find links to five 45-minute Educational Presentations by Senior Connection experts, on topics of concern to Seniors & Caregivers.

The website will become active on October 16 at 10am and remain active for a minimum of a week, so you’ll have plenty of time to come back whenever and as often as you wish, at your convenience (i.e. "On Demand"). You can access the website via your computer or Smartphone. You won’t need an App. You won’t need to register. You won’t need to log in. No Password required. Super simple.

Please mark your calendars, tell your friends, and plan to attend. The event will provide an opportunity for you to meet the Senior Connection Member agencies that make it possible for us to provide FREE resources to you throughout the year. Come learn what their companies have to offer!

And please be sure to visit the Senior Connection’s booth. I look forward to you "seeing" me there.

September is Life Insurance Awareness Month

Here are Some Interesting Statistics

> 63% of people who do not buy life insurance think it will be too expensive and therefore do not bother getting a quote. The fact is that since people are living longer, life insurance has never been more affordable.

> Millenials and generation xers overestimate the cost of life insurance by 500%.

> Over 50% of the people who buy life insurance know that they do not have enough of it.

Top 5 Reasons People Buy Life Insurance

1) Income replacement
2) Pay final expenses
3) Transfer wealth / create an inheritance
4) Pay off mortgage
5) Business purposes (fund a buy-sell agreement, protect a business in the event of the death of a key employee)

Additional Reasons to Consider Buying Life Insurance

> Can be used to create a supplemental/additional income stream in retirement

> Can be used to pay for long term care expenses incurred in nursing homes, assisted living communities or at home. This is a fairly recent development and care should be given to make sure the policy is structured properly (i.e. Work closely with a licensed financial professional).


The policy’s death benefit is paid tax free to the beneficiary(ies).

You can borrow from the policy’s accumulated cash value at any time (no need to wait until age 59.5 like an IRA or 401k) and you can pay the loan back if you wish to do so – otherwise the amount of the outstanding loan will be deducted from the death benefit when it is paid out.

You can make a withdrawal from the policy’s accumulated cash value - not taxable until the withdrawal amount exceeds the policy’s cost basis (i.e. Total of premiums paid). No need to wait until age 59.5 to make a withdrawal.

Things To Do If You've Already Bought Life Insurance

1. Review your  policy on an annual basis – your insurance company should be sending you a statement every year on the policy’s anniversary date.

2. Conduct a more comprehensive review of your policy every three (3) years, preferably with the person who sold you the original policy. The review should include:

a) Have there been any significant changes in your life since your last review?

b) Is the policy financially performing the way you expected it to?

c) Is your insurance company still in good financial condition (rated "a" or better by a.m. best & co.)?

d) Is there a better policy you can move your current policy to (either with your current insurance company or a new insurance company)? This is referred to as a 1035 exchange.

Moving into autumn and Healthy Aging Month, it’s a good time to reevaluate our fitness routines as the high-energy of summer begins to fade and we prepare for the colder months. As we get older, it becomes increasingly important to work on strengthening the muscles and systems that keep us upright and help to prevent falling.

Why do people fall?

Risk factors often include:

> Fear or uncertainty following a previous fall
> Changes in mobility due to physical limitations
> Impaired walking patterns and balance
> Visual impairment
> Reduced muscle strength
> Slower reaction times

How can I reduce my risk?

Simple changes in your home can provide you with a greater sense of security, such as removing tripping hazards, spacing furniture and objects farther apart to allow for wider walking areas, and making an effort to be more aware of your surroundings. Equally as important is adjusting your fitness regimen to focus on increasing core strength, leg/hip strength, and training your vestibular system. Here are some moves to get started:

> Incorporate a chair in your workout so you can practice getting up and down safely.

> Practice chair sits to stands: use your arms to steady yourself on the chair’s arms, but be sure to use your leg muscles to raise and lower your body instead of dropping down into the chair. Do this 10 times.

> March in place without moving your position on the floor. You may steady yourself by placing your hand on the counter or another appropriately high surface. Try to get your knees as high as you can to your chest without discomfort or wobbling. Use your muscles to move instead of momentum.

> Side leg raises: Using a counter or surface, stand upright with your feet together. Slowly raise one leg out to the side as high as you can before slowly bringing it back down to the floor. Do this ten times before switching to the other leg.

> Back leg raises: Using a similar technique as side raises, slowly push one leg out behind you before moving it back to the floor. Try to stand straight without leaning forward or backward. Do this ten times before switching to the other leg.

> Balance on one leg: Set up two chairs so you can steady yourself between them if needed. Without touching them, stand on one leg for as long as you can. Work to the point of creating a slight wobble, so you know you’re taxing your system. If it’s easy, try closing your eyes. Then switch to the other leg.

Many other simple exercises can help you work on your balance safely. You do not need to be in a gym to do them; as we see above, they can be done in your home. I encourage you to explore more exercises online by searching on YouTube and other no-cost websites. For faster progress, consider working with a personal trainer with experience in helping clients reduce their risk of falling.
