The Senior Citizen Council

The Senior Citizen Council of Cobb County was formed in 1973. It is a tax-exempt nonprofit mem-
bership based organization, sponsored by Cobb Senior Services, whose primary function is to further
the common good and general welfare of Cobb County adults over the age of 55. It now embraces
approximately 50 clubs and over 3500 individual members. Other organizations striving to meet the
needs of seniors in the community consider the Council as a role model in Georgia.

The Council encourages seniors to stay involved in the community and provides a forum on aging
issues. It recognizes contributions made by senior volunteers at an annual luncheon, and awards
scholarships to students who plan to further their careers in gerontology. The Bulletin, a monthly
newspaper, informs seniors about pertinent events, activities, trips and legislation. The Resource
Directory is an initiative of the Council, as well as the Vial of Life, and Medical Information Card
(File of Life) and other projects undertaken by the Council throughout the year, such as the Senior
Housing Task Force, Cobb Senior Idol, Advisory Committee on Aging and more.

If you are interested in joining the Senior Council, please complete the application form in the back
of Resource Directory, mail it and the proper dues amount to the address listed on the form.

                          MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Is The Difference Between Medicare And Medicaid?
Medicare is the federal health insurance program for people 65 years of age or older and certain dis-
abled people. Your local Social Security Administration office takes applications for Medicare and
provides general information about their program.
Medicaid is a medical assistance program jointly financed by the State and Federal governments for
eligible low-income individuals. Medicaid coverage and eligibility vary among states, and eligibility
depends on both financial and non-financial criteria.

Where Do I Get Information Or Apply For Medicaid?
Refer to Medicaid listing under “ Most Frequently Called Numbers.

What Is The Difference Between Dementia And Alzheimer’s
Dementia is not a disease, but is a syndrome marked by deterioration in intellectual performance that
involves memory loss and is severe enough to interfere with work or social activities or both. There is
almost always a loss of problem- solving ability and other aspects of abstract thinking, as well.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia.

The earliest symptom of Alzheimer’s disease is usually short-term memory loss. Other symptoms may
include problems with learning, attention, judgment, and orientation; difficulty in finding the right
word; and changes in personality and behavior. There are two points to keep in mind. One, the majority
of elderly persons who exhibit symptoms of dementia will turn out to have AD. Two, there are other
causes of dementia symptoms that may be treatable and curable. Thus, every person with these symp-
toms deserves a thorough medical investigation by a physician who is familiar with dementia and the
elderly. Book: Understanding Alzheimer’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Asso-

What Services Are Provided For Seniors Needing Extra Care At Home?
In-Home Care provides individuals with a wide variety of supportive services that enable them to
remain in their own home. In-home care allows patients to be discharged from hospitals earlier than
expected because any remaining treatments can be performed in the home. Services include any com-
bination of home health care, including medical equipment, respite care (offers relief to caregivers
from demands of providing ongoing care), homemaker services, heavy duty chore services, licensed
nurses, therapists and social workers, monitoring medications, assistance with the activities of daily
living, home-delivered meals, companion services, telephone reassurance, and emergency response
systems. Services can be hourly, weekly, monthly, or by any other arrangement. For information regard-
ing care in Cobb County, refer to HOME HEALTH AGENCIES.

Home Health/Skilled Services are prescribed by a physician and implemented by a home health care
agency. They include physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, intravenous therapy, wound
care and dressing, catheterization and injections and respite. Medicare provides limited coverage for
these skilled services. Home care under Medicare Part B is limited in many cases.

What Care Is Available Outside The Home?

Adult Day Care/Day Respite usually provides a structured program with activities, lunch, health and
rehabilitative services, occasional outings, family support and/or counseling and transportation. Cli-
ents must meet eligibility requirements.

Independent Living is for people who want to and are able to live independently and prefer to live in
a community with others of the same age and with similar interests. An independent retirement com-
munity allows for a variety of social activities and trips. Many independent living communities also
offer prepared meals and provide a wide range of amenities.

Retirement Communities are also known as Continuing Care or Life Care Communities. The primary
advantage of retirement communities is that an individual or couple does not need to relocate if circum-
stances related to their health change. Because of the breadth of care available, they are generally more
costly than the other forms of available residential care. Most elders finance this by the sale of a home.

Personal Care (Assisted Living Facilities) Personal Care Homes provide housing in a group setting
for elderly or disabled individuals. The Office of Regulatory Services must license Personal Care Homes.
They are sometimes given names that include the phrase “assisted living/or Personal Care Homes
provide 24-hourwatchful oversight and generally offer staffing and a level of care between indepen-
dence and that offered by a nursing home. All facilities are required to post their last inspection report
for review. If there are questions about this report contact the Office of Regulatory Services, Personal
Care Home Section at (404) 657-4076.

Skilled Nursing Facilities (Nursing Homes) offer a protective, therapeutic environment for those indi-
viduals who require rehabilitative care or can no longer live independently because of a chronic physi-
cal or mental condition which requires round-the-clock skilled nursing care. These communities pro-
vide care similar to that received in the hospital. Communities that receive Medicaid and Medicare
reimbursements are required to maintain a social service staff and provide daily social activities for
residents. If there are questions about this report contact the Office of Regulatory Services, Personal
Care Home Section at (404) 657-4076.

Hospice care provides services at home or health care community for terminally ill residents and their
families. Care is usually supervised by the family’s physician working cooperatively with a team of
professionals that include nurses, social workers, clergy and home health care aides. Hospice care
primarily manages pain and discomfort, creating an environment that encourages individual as well as
loved ones to openly grieve, talk, grow and enjoy each other while remaining physically and emotion-
ally close until the end. People do not usually enter hospice care until their projected final six (6)
months of life.
