RETIRE Q&A

With retirement comes many questions. Luckily, our experts are ready to help with your journey.
Q: What health benefits might I receive by having an adjustable bed?
A: An adjustable bed provides relief for users
who have symptoms of painful lower back,
hiatal hernia, edema or swelling of the legs
and feet, as well as certain cases of insomnia,
snoring and breathing difficulties. Call Christy
Keenan to arrange a demonstration.

Q: What is included in end-of-life decision-making?
A: Carilion Clinic Hospice recommends that
you talk with your loved ones and health care
providers now so that you can take the time
to learn your options and make decisions
that bring you peace of mind now and make
your passing as peaceful as possible for you
and your loved ones. We suggest using a
comprehensive checklist to help guide you
through these tough decisions. Carilion Clinic
Hospice has built an easy-to-follow checklist
that combines personal, practical, and financial decisions necessary to transition to endof-life.  We also recommend consulting with
your financial and legal advisors as well as your
health care provider to ensure that your plans
are complete. As always, Carilion Clinic Hospice stands ready to assist you in this journey!

Q: I am downsizing. What is my used
furniture worth? 
A: Not much, unless it is something currently
in vogue, like mid-century modern. Maple is
"out" as is most oak and French Provincial. Formal dining room and living room sets bring
less and less. Relaxed, easy living furniture is
what's happening. And remember, condition
is everything.

Q: What are the benefits of choosing
a skilled nursing facility for your rehabilitation services after surgery or
illness?
A: At Raleigh Court we offer individualized care
for each person who enters our Center under
our exclusive LifeWorks Rehab program that
considers their prior level of function, personal
goals, and any limitations that they have after
a surgery or illness. Our goal is to get our patients back home fast, healthy, and stronger
than ever before.

Q: My doctor says my pain is caused
by a disc problem in my back. Can PT
improve this?
A: Absolutely. Physical therapy is an excellent
place to begin a safe, gentle exercise program that will improve flexibility and strength
throughout the back in order to improve disc
space in our spines. We are trained to provide you with the tools you need to maintain
a healthy back for many years.

Q. My loved one has chosen to be cremated. How can we commemorate
her life?

A: There are niches, including glass front
niches available to display memorabilia associated with a well lived life. Many times loved
ones can be buried on a space with another
family member, or even in granite benches.
Sherwood Memorial Park offers a beautiful
Cremation Garden with many options.

Q: I was scammed online... What now?
A: If you use your computer for online banking, purchases, personal accounts, then call all
of your financial institutions to institute fraud
protections immediately. Go to your bank in
person to discuss what can be done to protect
your assets, such as Fraud Alerts or closing
accounts & reopening new ones. Change all
of your passwords and keep them safe and
secure.

Q: Are you second guessing your investment choices?
A: When you try to manage your investing on
your own - and even when you have help - it's
common to look around and wonder if you
could be doing better. We offer personalized
financial strategies with a broad range of investment choices and support from a talented
force of market analysts, investment planning
specialists and portfolio managers. Call today
for a second opinion.
