Raleigh Senior Granted Lifelong Wish

RALEIGH, May 12, 2011 –

WHO: Steven Meyer, resident of Heritage Raleigh, a Brookdale Senior Living retirement community; Meyer’s son and his family, and a cheering crowd of more than 20 residents from the Heritage Raleigh

WHAT: Through Brookdale Senior Living and Jeremy Bloom’s Wish of a Lifetime,

Meyer will be granted his lifelong wish to guide a plane in on the runway into its terminal

WHERE: Pope Field, N.C., Manchester Gate entry control point.

Media must be approved in advance for access: RSVP to Capt. Torri White at 910-920-6329

WHEN: Saturday, May 14 at 2 p.m.

SUMMARY: Meyer spent most of his working life flying to Europe, South Africa and South America, representing his company which was connected to the steel industry. He has flown many times to Spain, Chile, South Africa, England, France, Italy, and more. As a result of his many trips, his two sons grew up in airports watching Meyer come and go. The family developed a deep passion for all things aeronautic. Now this passion is carried on by Meyer’s grandson; a fascination with avionics is a common interest that binds the male members of the family. In fact, two Meyer men have flight simulators/virtual flight capabilities on their computers, and anytime one of the Meyers is traveling by plane, the others keep track of the flight and listen to tower-to-aircraft communications.

“This will be a major family event,” said Meyer. “This will also be a thrill of my lifetime. I have spent thousands of hours watching and admiring the folks on the ground of the runway, and have always wanted to experience the feeling. This would signify the culmination my life of business travels, and very uplifting to my family and me.”

Through Brookdale and Jeremy Bloom’s Wish of a Lifetime, residents at Brookdale Senior Living communities nationwide are invited to share and submit their wishes.  To request his wish, Smith filled out a survey form explaining an experience he would like to have fulfilled, and how that experience relates to one or more dimensions of the company’s Optimum Life® concept.  The six dimensions of Optimum Life are emotional, social, physical, intellectual, spiritual and purposeful.

Brookdale’s Optimum Life® concept is geared toward cultivating whole-person wellness through fulfillment in the six key dimensions. Both organizations, Brookdale and Jeremy Bloom’s Wish of a Lifetime provide a helping hand in making some of the dreams of Brookdale’s residents come true.

SOCIAL SECURITY AND PUBLIC SERVICE

By Brian Simpson
Social Security Public Affairs Specialist in North Carolina

Public Service Recognition Week takes place from May 1 to May 7, 2011. We at Social Security appreciate the hard work and dedication of not only our own employees but all people who serve the American public.

Celebrated the first week of May since 1985, Public Service Recognition Week is a nationwide public education campaign honoring the men and women who serve our nation as Federal, State, county and local government employees — such as school teachers, police officers, and fire fighters — and who ensure that our government is the best in the world.

Recognition of public service goes back further than 1985. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy said, “Let the public service be a proud and lively career. And let every man and woman who works in any area of our national government, in any branch, at any level, be able to say with pride and with honor in future years: ‘I served the United States Government in that hour of our nation’s need.’”

Social Security employees consider it a privilege to serve the American public. You only need to visit an office, call our toll-free number, or visit www.socialsecurity.gov to see that when it comes to serving the public, we want to be the best.

A convenient service option for many Americans is our web site.  For example, if you need to obtain general information about Social Security, apply for benefits, or get an estimate of your future benefits, visit us online at www.socialsecurity.gov or go directly to our online services page at www.socialsecurity.gov/onlineservices.

You also can call Social Security toll-free at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or visit your local Social Security office. If you’re not sure where the nearest office is located, just visit www.socialsecurity.gov/onlineservices and select the “Social Security Office Locator” at the left side of the page.

Medicare changes that will affect your FUTURE!

Are your knees bothering you?  How’s your back?  What hurts today??

Yes, sick as we age, sales our body wears down, health and the aches & pains become the highlighted topics of our morning coffee discussions.  Sometimes, we complain to about the new pain that arrived overnight or the “improved” pain that we had leftover from yesterday.

We all watched as the lovely Elizabeth Taylor, Zsa Zsa Gabor and other stars have aged before our eyes. We have witnessed that aging is a physically debilitating process.  Like these icons, we will come to a time in Life when we too, will need help.  That’s when we’ll need the wheelchair, walker or other medical equipment to adjust to our inevitable physical disabilities.

But, why worry about that now?  You probably have Medicare Part B to help with the costs, so, it won’t be a problem.., right?  WRONG.

Medicare has recently begun changing the way it reimburses for home medical equipment.  Washington has decided to put medical equipment and supplies out to bid. They think this will reduce the cost of important medical equipment and supplies. They are wrong, because it will cost YOU and your loved ones drastically in the end.

The process is known as “Competitive Bidding,” and it consists of the government contracting with a small number of suppliers to provide medical equipment to largest cities in the country.  And, it’s scheduled to come to Virginia in 2012.

This is how it will affect you, your family, your children and your healthcare:

Ø  In the current plan, you can choose your supplier; if for any reason you are unhappy, you can switch to another supplier.

Ø  In the new system, only about 10% of the current suppliers will be under contract, so 90% will not be accessible to you.

Ø  With the unprecedented increase in demand created by the 78 million baby boomers entering the Medicare system and the drastic decrease in suppliers, you can easily see the problems that will occur.

o   The lines of people waiting for supplies will grow.

o   Equipment quality will decline over time.

o   Customer services will be reduced.

Since news of this bidding program emerged, hundreds of economists, businessmen and yes, even Congressmen, have issued objections to this ill-conceived plan.  Much has been written about the unintended consequences and market monopolies it promises to create.  Experts have weighed in with awe, stating that no such health reimbursement plan has EVER been used, anywhere in the world!

NOTE:  You are about to become a generation of guinea pigs for the “new and improved” home medical equipment delivery system.

In spite of the warnings from world renowned economists, informed congressional representatives, and patient advocacy groups, CMS, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services, plans to move forward with its implementation.  In spite of complaints from Medicare beneficiaries & physicians, Washington bureaucrats continue undaunted, to complete the program in 100 cities around the US.

Is this right? Should we continue to go forward with a major change in Medicare that we know is flawed?  Members of the business community are calling this plan a “train wreck”! This change will affect YOU! If you are on the Medicare train, you need to be concerned. You have the right to have a voice in YOUR healthcare future!

Contact Senator Mark Warner @ 202 224-2023 and Congressman Eric Cantor @ 202 225-2815 today and express your objections to Competitive Bidding.  Just say that you side with the experts in bidding & auction design, not government bureaucrats, and do not want Competitive Bidding in Virginia.
