One2One Home Care at Lincoln Home Says Thank You to Veterans for Their Service

To all veterans of all branches: Thank you for your sacrifice, your bravery, and the example you set for us all. In short, thank you for your service! 
 
The VA provides health care for Veterans from providers such as One2One Home Care in local communities. Veterans may be eligible to receive care from a local community provider when the VA cannot provide the care needed. This care is provided on behalf of and paid for by VA. 
 
Once a Veteran makes out the application and is found to be qualified a referral goes out to the area Home Care providers. Community care is available to Veterans based on certain conditions and eligibility requirements, and in consideration of a Veteran’s specific needs and circumstances. Community care must be first authorized by the VA before a Veteran can receive care from a community provider. 
A Veteran may also request a certain provider if they have a preference. The provider then schedules a home visit with the Veteran. This meeting includes setting up weekly services to be provided by a Caregiver. 
 
Veterans are encouraged to call the VA to request assistance with Transportation, Home Services, Home Health, Medical Assistance, VA Physician Contact, Appointments for other Medical Services, Social Worker Services, Pension and Disability Payments. 
To apply for VA Community Health Care, call toll-free hotline at 877-222-8387, Mon. through Fri. 8:00 am to 8:00 pm 
or call the Maine State Veterans Call Center, Togus at: (207) 623-8411 Ext. 7490.

Best Friends Approach at Lincoln Home and Harbor View Cottage

In September Lynn Norgang, RN, Executive Director of Lincoln Home, joined fifteen other administrators from across the country in Annapolis, MD for a week of training to become certified trainers of the Best Friends Approach to Dementia Care. Taught and developed by David Troxel M.P.H. and Virginia Bell, M.S.W, this comprehensive, compassionate approach is grounded in the understanding that relationships are the key in dementia care. The essential elements of friendship, respect, empathy, support, trust and humor are the building blocks. This evidence-based care model is easy for staff to embrace, is person centered and flexible enough to adapt to each person’s strengths and abilities.  
 
Lynn shares, “What I most love is that this relationship-based model stresses the role of care partners as friends, rather than just being care givers. This fall I will be training our entire staff of seventy plus employees at both Harbor View Cottage and Lincoln Home Assisted Living in the Certified Best Friends Approach. Our distinctive approach to resident care has been based on the Best Friends Philosophy for many years.  This certification strengthens and adds to the level of care we offer, placing Harbor View Cottage and Lincoln Home above and beyond in the Senior Living World.”
 
Lynn will be giving a talk to the public later this fall illustrating the concepts and benefits of the Best Friends Approach to residents and families. The Lincoln Home is located at 22 River Road, Newcastle, and can be reached at 563-3350.
