Effective March 17, 2020, Social Security Offices Will Only Offer Phone Service

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — seniorlivingguide @ 3:35 pm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

** Online Services Remain Available **

All local Social Security offices will be closed to the public for in-person service starting Tuesday, March 17, 2020.  This decision protects the population we serve—older Americans and people with underlying medical conditions—and our employees during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.  However, we are still able to provide critical services. social security administration logo

Our secure and convenient online services remain available at www.socialsecurity.gov.  Local offices will also continue to provide critical services over the phone.  We are working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state and local governments, and other experts to monitor COVID-19 and will let you know as soon as we can resume in-person service.

If you need help from Social Security:                                                       

  • First, please use our secure and convenient online services available at socialsecurity.gov/onlineservices. You can apply for retirement, disability, and Medicare benefits online, check the status of an application or appeal, request a replacement Social Security card (in most areas), print a benefit verification letter, and much more – from anywhere and from any of your devices. We also have a wealth of information to answer most of your Social Security questions online, without having to speak with a Social Security representative in person or by phone. Please visit our online Frequently Asked Questions at www.socialsecurity.gov/ask.
  • If you cannot conduct your Social Security business online, please check our online field office locator for specific information about how to directly contact your local office. Your local office still will be able to provide critical services to help you apply for benefits, answer your questions, and provide other services over the phone.
  • If you already have an in-office appointment scheduled, we will call you to handle your appointment over the phone instead. If you have a hearing scheduled, we will call you to discuss alternatives for continuing with your hearing, including offering a telephonic hearing.  Our call may come from a PRIVATE number and not from a U.S. Government phone.  Please remember that our employees will not threaten you or ask for any form of payment.

If you cannot complete your Social Security business online, please call our National 800 Number at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).  Our National 800 Number has many automated service options you can use without waiting to speak with a telephone representative.  A list of automated telephone services is available online at www.socialsecurity.gov/agency/contact/phone.html.

A Dozen Holiday Tips for Alzheimer’s Caregivers

Filed under: Uncategorized — seniorlivingguide @ 4:48 pm

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Contact: Emily Mesiano emesiano@alz.org

(ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 18, 2017)- While holiday celebrations are often joyous occasions, they can be challenging and stressful for the five million Americans currently living with Alzheimer’s and their families. The symptoms of this progressive brain disease can sometimes make holiday celebrations or travel more difficult, but it doesn’t mean the whole family can’t participate in holiday festivities.

The Alzheimer’s Association Central North Florida Chapter encourages families to try implementing the following tips for a happy and memorable holiday for everyone.

Tips for holiday celebrations:

Make sure others know. Let guests know what to expect before they arrive and tell them how they can help. For example, what activities can they do with the person with Alzheimer’s or how best to communicate with them.

Build on traditions and memories. Take time to adapt, or create new traditions that might be less stressful or a better fit with your caregiving responsibilities. For example, if evening confusion and agitation are a problem, turn your holiday dinner into a holiday lunch.

Involve the person with Alzheimer’s. Depending on abilities and preferences, make sure to keep the person with Alzheimer’s involved in the celebrations, such as packing cookies in tins or helping wrap gifts.

Plan ahead. When attending a holiday party, prepare the host for special needs, such as a quiet room for the person to rest, away from noise and distractions.

Tips for travel:

Stick with the familiar. Travel to known destinations. Try to visit places that are familiar.

Be prepared. Create an itinerary that includes details. Make sure your loved one’s medications are easily accessible. Keep comfort items close by, in case he or she becomes anxious during travel.

Pick the right time. Consider the time of day that your loved one is at their best, and schedule your time of departure during those hours to prevent possible confusion and agitation.

Avoid layovers. If unavoidable, ask about airport escort services.

Ask for help. Notifying hotel and airline staff that the person you’re traveling with has Alzheimer’s disease and request necessary accommodation during your trip.

Ensure a Safe Return. Changes in environment can trigger wandering. Enroll in MedicAlert® + Alzheimer’s Association Safe Return®.

Find local support. Before you travel, reach out to the Alzheimer’s Association chapter at your destination.

Contact the 24/7 Helpline. As always, the Alzheimer’s Association is here to help, contact the Helpline with any questions or concerns. 1.800.272.3900
