Dana McCoy, RN

Angel Watch "Home Health Care"

 

Home Health vs Private Duty

 

 

What are Skilled Care Services?

Nursing and Therapy Services are provided in the home either after a hospital stay or by doctor referral. 

The patient must be homebound.

Services Provided:

   ◦Nursing

   ◦Physical Therapy

   ◦Occupational Therapy

   ◦Speech Therapy

   ◦Certified Nursing Assistant

   ◦Medical Social Worker

 

Dana explained that a person is considered homebound if they have an illness or injury that restricts their ability to leave their residence except with the aid of supportive devices (canes, wheelchairs and walkers), special transportation or another person. Having a condition for which leaving home is medically contraindicated is also considered homebound and that, “leaving the home is a considerable and taxing effort."

 

Who Pays for Skilled Care:

Most patients are on Medicare – if a patient is on Medicare, there is no out of pocket expense.

Insurance companies (e.g. United Healthcare, BC/BS of Florida, Aetna, etc.).

Veterans Administration (there are qualifications that must be met).

Private pay.

 

What are Private Duty Services?

In home support to help the elderly stay independent as long as possible

Services include:

   ◦Fall prevention

   ◦Medication adherence

   ◦Assistance with activities of daily living

   ◦Light cleaning

   ◦Grooming

   ◦Proper nutrition

   ◦Shopping, Dr. appointments, errands

   ◦Companionship

 

Who pays for private duty services?

Primarily paid out of pocket.

Long Term Care Insurance (LTC).

Veterans Administration (VA).

 

 

Dana listed these Reasons for having Private Duty Care:

Tired caregiver

   ◦Spouse with dementia

   ◦Elderly person up at night

Parent or grandparent slowing down

Recent health issue or hospital stay

Just need a little extra assistance

Anything but the nursing home!

 

The people who need skilled care are those who are going in for a medical procedure and will be homebound after the procedure.  Typical procedures would be hip or knee replacement, open heart surgery, a chronic condition that requires monitoring like diabetes, congestive heart failure or COPD.

 

Now here is the big news of the day:

Medicare advantage just announced their plans will start covering Private Duty care in 2019.  This paves the way for large insurers to pay for Private Duty services.  The purpose is to compensate for physical impairments and reduce avoidable emergency and health care utilization.

Consolidation of companies to provide a larger breadth of services from a single entity such as Aetna & CVS and Humana & Walmart.  Even Amazon is getting into the mix of helping people "Age in Place" campaign.

 

In closing, Dana suggested we know what is available and to keep up with the changes and have a plan ahead of time to prevent a crisis down the road.

 

United Healthcare Complete is a Medicare Advantage policy.  For more information, you should contact Nancy Dervaes who is our local United Healthcare, Medicare Licensed Representative at 904-624-0160 or nancydervaes@gmail.com 

 

Along with being a Rotarian, Dana McCoy is the Director of Operations for Angel Watch Home Care.  She has been an RN for over 25 years.  In that time, Dana has worked in a variety of nursing roles and environments including post-op cardiovascular surgery unit, cardiac rehabilitation, clinical management, Medicare claims auditing, home health care and parish nursing.  Dana has a special place in her heart for the elderly and has always done everything in her power to deliver high quality and caring service in their times of need.  Dana has deep roots in the Amelia Island/Fernandina Beach community.  Her family has lived on the island for over 100-years and more than anything, she wants to make sure there is a caring local company available to meet the home health care needs of our community.  Dana has been married to her husband Kevin for 29 years and has two children, Megan and Brett, who are working as an OTA and PTA respectively.

Members,

 

Please consider joining us for some or all of the Rotary District 6970 Conference.  For those of you who have not had the chance to attend any of “gatherings” of Rotarian’s, a District Conference is a great way to get a sense of what the larger organization is accomplishing on a regional and global scale.

 

The cost to attend all events for the weekend is $295.  Registration begins at 3:00 on Thursday, May 17th

 

There will be a number of nationally recognized speakers presenting, as well as leadership from Rotary International, Area 34, and District 6970.  

 

Several breakfasts, lunches, and banquet dinners are scheduled with various workshops and seminars on Friday and Saturday. 

 

Sunday morning’s breakfast will be the “Presentation of Flags” by the Rotary Youth Exchange Students – and the handing over of the gavel from DG Brent Coates to DGE Jeanette Loftus.  There will also be a “House of Friendship” open for you to purchase all sorts of cool Rotary merchandise. 

 

All events are available ala carte.  If you have to pick one, try to attend the Sunday breakfast – the Presentation of Flags really drive’s home Rotary International’s global commitment to peace, understanding, and improving the human condition.

 

See the schedule of events listed below!

SOMETHING NEW:  On going 2018, 100% attendance.

There seems to be a misunderstanding as to the rule of attendance for this new years challenge. Below is the original post of the rules that Larry Myers made when he came up with the idea and NO makeups would be accepted.  Only if you were on "Rotary business during the meeting time" would be the only acceptable reason:
 
It's a new year and Larry Myers and I decided we would take note of all members who are at 100% attendance for 2018 to see who would be left standing at the end of the year or until everyone drops off before the year ends.  One thing I need to make clear though, its based on our clubs physical attendance.....NO make ups will be counted on this list of names.  So, if you did not "weather the cold" on our first 2018 meeting, you are already out of the picture. That said....here are the 100% attendees to date: 
 
Frank Gagnier and Dr. David Page

Members,

The cost to attend all events for the weekend is $295.  Registration begins at 3:00 on Thursday, May 17th.  Our Amelia Island is hosting this event and a reasonable showing from our club would be greatly appreciated.  So please take part in some fashion to show support.  

There will be a number of nationally recognized speakers presenting, as well as leadership from Rotary International, Area 34, and District 6970.   

Several breakfasts, lunches, and banquet dinners are scheduled with various workshops and seminars on Friday and Saturday.

Pastor, Rev. Dr. Wain Wesberry and Scoutmaster, Troop 89
 
Rev. Dr. Wain Wesberry, Sr. Pastor First Presbyterian Church of Fernandina Beach is also the Scoutmaster for Troop 89 since 2016.  He grew up in Batesburg-Leesville, SC where he earned the rank of Eagle Scout in 1991.  Received the Vigil Honor in 1993 in Muscogee Lodge.  Dr. Wesberry served on numerous Scout Camp Staffs over the years.  He graduated with a B.A. in English from Presbyterian College in 1996 and earned his Masters of Divinity in 2000.  By 2008, he earned his Doctoral Degree from Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur Georgia.
Dr. Wesberry has been an Ordained Minister of Word and Sacrament in the Presbyterian Church since 2000.  He was the assistant Scoutmaster for Troop 89 in 2015 before becoming the Scoutmaster in 2016. 
His wife of 20 years is Sarah; Son Will is 16 who is a life scout and is working on his Eagle Scout project; his daughter Aubrey now 14.  His past time when he can find the time, is golfing, swimming and playing the guitar.  Sounds like Scoutmaster Wain Wesberry is a great example for all Scouts to follow and look up to!
 
Here are some highlights of his presentation about The Boy Scouts:
 
Rev. Dr. Scoutmaster, Wain Wesberry
 
The Boy Scouts of America organization name is NOT CHANGING!  
 
There has been much media attention surrounding the recent announcement of program changes by the Boy Scouts of America for youth ages 11 to 18.  In many cases, the "media" got it wrong creating much confusion!  Here are some facts from Jack L. Sears, Jr., Scout Executive/CEO, to set the record straight:
 
The name, Boy Scouts of America will continue to be Boy Scouts of America.  Beginning February 2019, the Boy Scout program name will change to "Scouts BSA" and will begin serving girls, as well as boys.
 
Under the new name of "Scouts BSA," that program, which is the same iconic program it has always been, will continue to offer Scouting in single-gender troops, through which Scouts - ages 11 through 17 - can work to earn the Eagle Scout rank (there will be NO co-ed or mixed troops).  Boys will be with boys and Girls will be with girls! This will all take effect during a scheduled launch on February 1, 2019.
 
Before, during and after that program name change, the overall organization name will continue to be Boy Scouts of America.
 
Both male and female participants in the Scouts BSA program will be referred to as "SCOUTS," just as boys now in the Boy Scout program are often referred to as "Scouts."
 
For more information about the announcement about welcoming girls to Scouting at:
www.scouting.org/familyscouting
 
Cub Scout Dens Will Be Single-gender Dens!
 
The Cub Scout program, which serves youth ages 5 through 10 and had been available to boys since 1930, started serving girls in January 2018 through an Early Adopter program.  Cub Scout registration will become available to boys and girls and in all councils starting in the Summer of 2018.
 
There will be three types of Cub Scout "Packs"
All boys Packs
All girl Packs
Packs that include a mix of girl "Dens" and boy "Dens" but Cub Scout Dens will be single-gender; all boys or all girls.
 
For more information about the Cub Scout Program, please visit:
www.scouting.org/program/cub-scouts

President Ron Heymann

Our next "Social" event will be Wednesday June 6th from 5:00 to 7 pm at the Story and Song bookstore.  They will cater the food and the Student Scholarship winners and their parents will be invited to attend.  Let's have a great turnout and enjoy the company.  This Wednesday night social will replace our normal meeting that day at noon.

 

John Howard, Community Services Report:

The next Blood Drive will be in TWO weeks on May 23rd.  John passed around the sign up sheets for us and needs some volunteers to help bring potential donors to the bus from Centre Street before and during our meeting.  Let John know if you are interested in helping out here.

Also mentioned, from Scout Leader Wain Wesberry, that the next Boy Scouts trash pick-up of the Parkway will be the first Saturday in June (6/2/18). Please keep this date in mind to help out.  We always meet on Bailey Road just off the circle of the Parkway at 9am (usually takes about an hour to complete depending on the number of volunteers).

 

Barbara Gingher, Fundraising Report:

John Boylan, Director of Youth Services Report:

LAST CHANCE to help out.  We Still need some help with housing some Exchange Students from Northeast Florida for the weekend of May 18th here on the Island during the District Conference.  There is enough beds for all but we could use some relief as several homes are putting up several students to make sure all have housing.
The commitment is to provide a bed for two nights, and dinner on Friday and breakfast on Saturday/Sunday.   For the most part on Saturday, the students will be doing a service project, downtown, and on the Cumberland Island boat ride, and on Sunday, participating at the District 6970 Rotary Conference at the Omni.

Jennifer Mitchell, Ph. D.

Office of Communications

St. Johns River Water Management District

 

 
Jennifer Mitchell is a Public Communications Coordinator with the St. Johns River Water Management District.  She is passionate about Florida's incredible water resources and hopes to spark our interest in what we can do to help protect Florida's waterways.
 
After earning her Ph.D. in Forest Ecology from Auburn University, Jennifer completed a post-doc at the University of Florida in Soil & Water Science.  Because she realizes that greater results will come from more community participation, she now works to spread the message of how individuals can reduce their negative impact on our waterways.
Amelia Tree Conservancy (ATC)
 
 

Margaret Kirkland, Chair, of the ATC will be giving us the presentation.

 

Amelia Tree Conservancy (ATC) is a diverse coalition of Amelia Island citizens and friends dedicated to preserving the islands maritime forest canopy—native island trees, understory and the unique environment they create. Their mission is to:

 

·     Educate the public and increase awareness regarding the nature and composition of the Amelia Island maritime forest canopy     ecosystem and its importance in creating a habitat for humans, birds, animals and plants.

·     Advocate for and work towards community involvement for the preservation and welfare of the Amelia Island  canopy.

 

ATC was formed in 2013 as a community response to Flash Foods’ destruction of the lovely live oaks at the intersection of S. Fletcher and 1st Coast Highway (A1A). 

The ATC members believe that Amelia Island canopy and its habitat play an important role in the life and health of all inhabitants of Amelia Island: humans, plants and animals. With the rapid pace of development, they consider this a critical period for saving what remains of our maritime forest canopy, as it is disappearing rapidly. Their slogan is “Protecting the canopy that protects us” and they are fighting for zero canopy loss.”

Donna Paz Kaufman & Mark Kaufman

 
Donna Kaufman, President Ron Heymann and Mark Kaufman
 
 
Indie Bookstore Renaissance & Shop Local Movement
 
The Kaufman's and their employees
The Renaissance of Independent Bookstores
 
Presented by Donna and Mark Kaufman
 
Buy local, support local businesses and help grow the local economy; appeared to be their main theme in their presentation.  Mark and Donna said it, "Paper isn't dead!"  Being we all live here in a paper mill town, that's good to know for sure!
 
A renaissance of Indie Bookstores is happening now. Their Story & Song Neighborhood Book Store Bistro offers a lot more than just books.  Today's new movement also offers coffee, wine, music, art, gifts, post cards and conversation to name a few.  The beauty of their venue is that they have the opportunity to present merchandise in the store and courtyard, as well as on The Second Story, which will be a showcase of local art, incorporating gallery wall space in addition to a retail boutique area.
 
Most book stores have readings, author signings, etc. but Mark and Donna offer so much more.  They offer a consignment relationship that involves the author/artisan and the bookstore, working together to meet the goal of achieving recognition for and sales of their work. They invite all authors to submit a form on their website that allows authors/artisans an opportunity to begin an open dialogue about a collaboration with Story & Song.  Something new.
 
An interesting chart they shared with us was; the unit sales of print and e-books in millions:
2010 - Print = 718 vs. E-book = 69
2012 - Print = 591 vs. E-book = 215
2015 - Print = 653 vs. E-book = 204
Shows that most still want their face in a hand held book!  The source was not spoken of but I'm curious what the numbers are today in 2018.
