Wisconsin Elder Abuse Law Chapter 46.90
  DEFINITION: An elder person, age 60 years or older, who may be subject to abuse, material
abuse, neglect or self-neglect as defined below:
  1. Physical Abuse means “willful infliction on an elder person of physical pain or injury or
unreasonable confinement.” This could include direct aggressive behavior such as bodily assault,
sexual abuse, physical restraint, torture and imprisonment.
  2. Material Abuse means “the misuse of an elder person’s property or financial resources.” This
would involve misuse, misappropriation of money, valuables or property; denial of right to access
or control of personal funds, or interference in financial decisions, passive neglect of financial affairs
or failure to intervene in financial mismanagement or exploitation.
  3. Neglect means “a significant danger to an elder person’s physical or mental health because the
person who takes care of the older person is unable or fails to provide adequate food, shelter,
clothing, medical or dental care.” This would include neglecting, withholding or refusing to permit
others to provide food, clothing, shelter, medication, medical attention, or personal care and
neglectfully permitting or deliberately causing exposure to unsafe, unsanitary, or unhealthful
conditions.
  4. Self-Neglect means “a significant danger to an elder person’s physical or mental health because
the elder person is responsible for his or her own care, but is unable to provide adequate food,
shelter, clothing, medical or dental care.”
  I. REFERRAL: Cases of elder abuse need to be referred to the Winnebago County Department of
Human Services, Crisis Intervention/Adult Access Team
  Oshkosh - 920-236-4615
  Fox Cities - 920-727-2882
  TDD/TTY - 920-236-4612
  A social worker will be assigned to assess the situation.
  II. DISPOSITION: There are four basic types of situations:
  1. The elder person who consents to assessment and service delivery and who appears to be
mentally competent.
  2. The elder person who refuses assessment and service delivery and who appears to be mentally
competent.
  3. The elder person who (regardless of his or her degree of cooperation) appears to lack sufficient
mental capacity to make decisions regarding his/her own care or an elder person who has a legal
guardian.
  4. The elderly person is in danger of immediate and grievous bodily harm regardless of
competency (emergency situations).
  LIMITATIONS: Competent adults have the legal right to refuse assessment and/or services
regardless of the opinion of professionals, family, friends, neighbors and the community at large.


CAREGIVER Information
n Winnebago County, as in other Wisconsin counties, there is a program called the Community
Options Program. In Winnebago County, this program is administered through the Winnebago
County Department of Human Services. All people that might be at risk of not being able to live
independently in their own home, are eligible to receive a Long Term Care Assessment/Consultation.
  To receive an Assessment/Consultation, call Winnebago County Human Services Department
Crisis Intervention/Adult Access Team at 920-236-4615 Oshkosh or 920-727-2882 Fox Cities Monday
through Friday, 8:00 a.m. -4:30 p.m.
  After normal business hours, there is a Crisis Hotline where assistance and information can be
received; that number is 920-233-7707 (Oshkosh) and 920-722-7707 (Fox Cities).

  The Long Term Care Assessment/Consultation will be conducted by professionals that will work
with loved ones in determining what needs the person being assessed has and will offer
recommendations that can be followed to meet the person’s needs. The following listed services may
be those where assistance is needed.
  Personal Cares: bathing, dressing, exercise, grooming, shaving, oral hygiene
  Household Chores: cleaning, meal preparation, shopping, laundry, money management, and
socialization
  Relief Help — Respite: adult day care (half, whole day, week), in home staff (temporary or constant
provider, or week at CBRF)
  Information — Connections: adult foster care, counseling, funding, Life Line, nursing home
consultation, physical therapy, transportation, case management, education, housing, Meals on
Wheels, protective services, support groups, and mobility aids
  The Winnebago County Department of Human Services also has a multitude of written materials
and videos available for loan on caregiver issues.
  If a person has financial resources to pay for needed services, the developed assessment plan will
guide the family to arrange needed services.
  If the person does not have financial resources to pay for needed services, there may be finances
available to assist these needs; however, there may be a waiting list to receive financial assistance. It is
important to receive the Long Term Care Assessment/Consultation and get on a waiting list to
eventually receive financial assistance to meet needs.
  The Long Term Care Assessment/Consultation can also be done at a time of crisis, by hospital
discharge planners, or by home health care agencies.
Care coordination/care management
  Once needs have been determined, whether as a result of the Long Term Care Assessment or as
families become aware of needs, there is a need to become more knowledgeable of specific services.
There is a wide array of agencies that can be contacted to meet needs. Many families will opt to
coordinate and provide needed care themselves; others will utilize services available in the community
and others will combine utilizing available services and provide some care themselves. This is a personal
decision for the family.
  Many people needing assessments and/or services do not have family or family living nearby or
family who are willing and/or able to provide assistance. The individual/family may also choose
to not make contact with Winnebago County Department of Human Services. The following
agencies, for a fee, will provide coordination and other services privately in Winnebago County.
This type of service is available throughout the country and may bring piece of mind to long
distance caregivers or to people who have no one to advocate/assist in setting up needed services.

12 Steps for Caregivers
 BY CAROL J. FARRAN
 AND ELEANORA KEANE-HAGERTY
 — As listed on the Wisconsin Alliance for Family Caregiving Web site at
 http://uwex.edu/ces/flp/caregiving.
1. Try to control how the disease affects you and your relative.
  You can’t control the course of the disease, but you may be able to control certain aspects
  of care and be able to manage your own attitude towards challenging behaviors.
2. Take care of yourself.
  You can’t care well for others if you aren’t in good physical and emotional shape yourself.
3. Take time to enjoy a few things that are really important to you.
4. Try to eat right and exercise a few times each week.
5. Simplify your lifestyle.
  You need to prioritize your time and attention, dropping those things that simply aren’t important.
6. Allow others to help you.
  Asking for help is not a sign of weakness. Learn to accept help graciously.
7. Take one day at a time.
  Focus on short-term issues, rather than projecting into the future. Structure each day.
  Providing structure helps your loved one and yourself.
8. Maintain a sense of humor.
  Remember that your loved one’s behaviors and emotions are affected by his or her illness.
9. Educate yourself about the disease so you won’t take bad language or disruptive behavior
personally.
10. Focus on and enjoy what your relative can still do.
11. Remind yourself frequently that you are doing the best you can at this moment.
12. Look for other relationships for love and support.
 As a degenerative disease progresses, you can’t depend on your loved one for gratitude
 and appreciation. Friends, neighbors, members of your faith community and other
 relatives can offer affirmation and support.

What is Hospice?
  Hospice is for people diagnosed with a terminal illness who have an anticipated life
expectancy of less than six months or less and desire comfort care. Services generally
include nursing care, social work services, spiritual support and counseling, therapies,
home health aides, volunteers, and bereavement support.


What is Respite care?
  Respite care is temporary relief from duties for caregivers. It may be for a few hours or
for a few days and can be provided in-home, at an adult day care, or in a residential
setting such as an assisted living or nursing home.

Wisconsin Donated Dental Services Program
Dentists throughout the state have volunteered to donate comprehensive dental care to people of all ages who,
because of a serious disability, advanced age, or medical problems, do not have enough income to pay for
needed dental care. There are no rigid financial eligibility requirements. There is generally no cost to
qualifying individuals, however, people in a position to pay for part of their care may be encouraged to do so,
especially when laboratory work is involved. Call the Program Coordinator for an application. When the
application is returned, it will be reviewed to a referral coordinator to obtain additional information. The
referral coordinator will share the information about the person tentatively accepted with a volunteer dentist,
then you will be notified of the dentist’s name and phone number and you will be responsible for setting up an
appointment for an examination.

TEPP (Telecommunications Equipment Purchase Program)
TEPP is to help people with disabilities buy equipment they need in order to use basic telephone services. The
TEPP is one of several different programs paid for by the Wisconsin Universal Service Fund established by the
Public Service Commission. Money collected from Wisconsin telephone service providers goes into the USF.
TEPP rules so require that an applicant:
• Be a Wisconsin resident
• Be a person who is deaf, hard of hearing, speech impaired, or mobility or motion impaired.
• Need special equipment to use the telephone in the home or when traveling (like a TTY, volume control, visual
  alert system, etc.)
There’s no age or income limit, but an individual can only get TEPP money once every three years for the same
type of disability.

Wisconsin Telecommunication Relay System
The Wisconsin Relay system provides the vital link for effective telephone communication between people who
use a TTY and those who use a standard telephone. A TTY (also called a TDD, TT, or text telephone) is a
device that allows people who can not hear and/or speak to type and read their telephone conversation. Calls
are relayed by highly trained operators called Communication Assistants (CA’s) who acts as the “invisible
link” between two callers. During a relay call, a CA will voice everything typed by the TTY user and type
everything said by the telephone user. In this way, the relay allows people who are Deaf, Hard of Hearing, or
Speech Disabled to have an interactive telephone conversation with anyone, anytime, even if the person they
are calling does not have TTY compatible equipment!

                                   Housing Information
One of the most difficult decisions a person may have to make is to move from his or her
home to a new living environment. Some fully embrace moving to a new situation where
they no longer have to worry about making and paying for home repairs, mowing the
lawn, shoveling snow and going up and down stairs. For others, the thought of change is
difficult and frightening and gets put off.

Changes may eventually need to be made with the involvement of family or a community
agency.

This information is made available so that people contemplating change can learn more
about what alternatives are available. There may be more alternatives available; those
listed provided information for this directory. Some of the facilities listed in this directory
have waiting lists. It is very important that you make arrangements to get on a facility’s
waiting list if you desire to live there.

Remember, when looking for housing, find information on the facilities you are interested
in. Make a list of questions that pertain to your needs. Visit the facility, and ask your
questions so that you have all of the information you need to know if this is a good choice
for you.

The first part of the Directory gives definitions of the different types of housing.


What is a Residential Care Apartment Complex?
Residential Care Apartment Complexes (RCACs) are a form of housing available to seniors
in Wisconsin designed to provide another choice for long-term care. All facilities are
required to provide apartments with a kitchen, living area, bedroom and bathroom. In
addition, RCACs must be equipped to provide up to 28 hours per week of services
designed to meet individual tenants’ needs. These types of services may include (but are
not limited to) help with bathing, dressing and grooming, nursing services such as
medication set-up and monitoring, and help with laundry and housekeeping. This
provision allows consumers to purchase the service they want, with the flexibility to
increase services as their care needs increase in the future.

How do RCACs differ from Nursing Homes and Assisted Living?
States are responsible for regulating long-term care facilities. While the commonly
accepted or generic term for facilities other than nursing homes is ―assisted living,‖
different states have chosen a variety of names. In Wisconsin there are really three
different kinds of assisted living facilities. These are (1) RCACs; (2) Community Based
Residential Facilities (CBRFs); and (3) Adult Family Homes. Different regulations apply to
each.
A CBRF is generally a facility where individuals have either a separate or shared bedroom,
but definitely share common living spaces such as the living room, dining room and
kitchen. They may share bathrooms as well. CBRFs are very well-regulated and monitored
by the State of Wisconsin. For example, CBRFs are required to do background checks on
their employees before hiring them. Their staff must undergo certain types of training for
specific numbers of hours on topics such as first aid, fire safety, medication
administration, caring for the elderly and other areas. The state inspects all CBRFs when
they first apply for a license and then at least once every subsequent year. The state also
sends out someone to investigate if anyone files a complaint about care or services in the
CBRF.

CBRF Class Definitions
CLASS A AMBULATORY (AA): a class A ambulatory CBRF may serve only residents who are
ambulatory and are mentally and physically capable of responding to an electronic fire alarm and
exiting the facility without any help or physical prompting.

CLASS A SEMIAMBULATORY (AS): a class A semiambulatory CBRF may serve only residents
who are ambulatory or semiambulatory and are mentally and physically capable of responding to
an electronic fire alarm and exiting the facility without any help or verbal or physical prompting.

CLASS A NONAMBULATORY (ANA): a class A nonambulatory CBRF may serve residents who
are ambulatory, semiambulatory or nonambulatory but only if they are mentally and physically
capable of responding to an electronic fire alarm and exiting the facility without any help or verbal
or physical prompting.

CLASS C AMBULATORY (CA): a class C ambulatory CBRF may serve only residents who are
ambulatory but one or more of whom are not mentally capable of responding to an electronic fire
alarm and exiting the facility without any help or verbal or physical prompting.

CLASS C SEMIAMBULATORY (CS): a Class C semiambulatory CBRF may serve only residents
who are ambulatory or semiambulatory but one or more of whom are not physically or mentally
capable of responding to an electronic fire alarm and exiting the facility without help or verbal or
physical prompting.

CLASS C NONAMBULATORY (CNA): a class C nonambulatory CBRF may serve residents who

ADULT FAMILY HOME: An Adult Family Home is much like a CBRF. The main difference is that
Adult Family Homes are licensed for five or less tenants.

NURSING HOMES: Nursing Homes and Rehabilitation Centers offer 24-hour a day skilled nursing
care. Rooms are either single or shared, as are bathrooms. All other space (living and dining
particularly) are shared common space.

Nursing Homes have strong state and federal regulations. There are extensive regulations
addressing issues such as staff qualifications, staff training, tenant activities, nursing care, food
service, fire codes, and physical specifications. A team of surveyors inspects nursing homes at least
annually and also visits a nursing home any time a complaint is filed.

When is it time to consider placing your loved one in an assisted living or nursing home?
The decision to place a loved one is never easy. Some things to consider when making
your decision should include:
  1. Is your loved one safe in the their current environment? Are they falling, forgetting to
    turn off the stove or oven, unable to transfer from a chair to a bed or unable to use
    the telephone to call for help in an emergency?
  2. Is your loved one getting proper nutrition? Does he or she need all meals prepared
    and served? Does he or she need help cutting up food or assistance with eating?
  3. Is your loved one able to perform the activities of daily living such as dressing,
    bathing, grooming, and toileting? Is your loved one incontinent, dependent on you to
    dress and bath him or her?
  4. Is your loved one able to perform housekeeping duties such as washing floors,
    vacuuming, laundry, doing the dishes or are they dependent on you?
  5. Is your loved one able to manage their own medications or do you have to provide
    medication reminders or administer medications?
   6. Is your loved one combative or aggressive? Does he or she strike out at you or
     verbally abuse you?
If you find yourself answering yes to most of these questions, you might want to consider
lacing your loved one. Ask your physician, clergy, or other family members for support.
There will be a transition period for you and your loved one, but most caregivers find they
are able to go back to just loving the person while others do the hard work of providing the
physical care. As a caregiver it is important for you to take good care of yourself. It is okay
to ask for help and support.
