Why light is so important for seniors’ health

Marie Coolidge’s apartment at the Eskaton Monroe Lodge was bathed in soft light on a recent afternoon, her newly installed light bulbs glowing beneath white fabric lamp shades around the living room where she spends most of her time.

The high-tech bulb system, installed last fall at the Land Park senior living community, is designed to provide extra light to residents whose eyesight may be fading as they age. The bulbs change color throughout the day to provide different types of light matching the body’s circadian rhythms, which determine when people should wake, work and rest. The new installation has improved seniors’ moods, helped them sleep and stopped many of them from falling when they wake in the night, according to a study on the project released this spring. Read more.

Candice Nutting, the lead housekeeper at Eskaton Village in Grass Valley, was given the Outstanding Team Member award from the California Assisted Living Association.

Awards were given based on their commitment to providing outstanding, quality care and service to residents in the assisted living communities where they work. Nutting will receive her award on June 5.

According to a release from the association, residents and staff describe Nutting as “quiet and unassuming, never one to seek attention,” yet her contributions to residents’ quality of life, overall community culture, and community-at-large are significant. As captain of the wellness committee, she helps residents, family members, and staff to get involved in healthy activities. In addition, she is described as an active participant in area fundraisers, helping to raise money for the Susan G. Komen Race for a Cure and the Relay for Life, among others. Read more.

There are resources for care-givers struggling to provide for the daily needs of incapacitated loved ones, said Heidi Richardson, program planner for Senior and Adult Services in Sacramento County.

Richardson suggested a good starting place is the person’s health insurance to find out what it provides to help families caring for those with cognitive impairments. Asking if a case manager is available can save caregivers hours or days trying to research resources.

Adult day care, such as the Eskaton Adult Day Health Center in Carmichael, might be covered.

About half of the program participants of the Eskaton Adult Day Health Center in Carmichael are covered under Medi-Cal, said executive director Daisy Absalon. Another 20 percent get services through Alta Regional Center. The center offers many activities for adults, both for fun and therapy. Most are elderly, but the center serves younger participants as well, Absalon said. Participants currently range in age from 44 to 93.
