Slaughter-Bergstrom BELLEVILLE - Mr. and Mrs. Don Slaughter announce the engagement of their daughter, Patricia, to Lester Bergstrom, son of Mr. and Mrs. Arvid Bergstrom of Agenda. The bride-elect, a Belleville High School graduate, studied medical Home care fosters healthy patients ByJANEE.BRODY N.Y. Times News Service NEW YORK — More and more Americans who might once have spent months or years in hospitals or nursing homes are today being cared for at home. Usually, they are under the loving supervision of a friend or relative, supported by a fast-growing network of health-care professionals who make house calls. Experts Personal health who study the interaction between body and mind say home health care fosters a greater sense of wellness and provides the opportunity to remain as independent as possible and involved with life. In general, patients heal faster, feel better and may even live longer when cared for in a home setting. As more Americans do live longer, and as the number of frail and sick elderly Americans continues to grow, the need for this kind of alternative to long-term institutional care becomes more pressing. For some patients who cannot afford or find placement in top-quality nursing homes, supervised care at home is the only option. For society, too, it is becoming an attractive alternative to more expensive forms of long-term care, ; particularly with the new time limitations for hospital treatment imposed by Medicare. Home health care is not new; until recent decades, most patients, even those who were terminally ill, were cared for primarily at home. But the Insurance companies slow to comply In some instances, Blue Cross-Blue Shield will reimburse expenses for home health care (in Rhode Island, the system is said to be working extremely well). Most policyholders, however, have only limited coverage. As author JoAnn Friedman says, "When investigating home health insurance, don't assume the policy provides a certain type of coverage." After reading the policy and making as much sense of it as you can, she recommends calling the insurance company and getting direct answers to your questions. Insurance coverage often hinges on whether a physician ordered specific tasks to be done by various home health-care professionals. Keep in mind, too, that the care provided by nonmedical home health aides is seldom covered by medical insurance. The insurance picture is bound to change as companies realize the financial benefits of noninstitutional health care, and as patients and their families start insisting upon this option as a more humane treatment. circumstances under which home care is now being implemented are vastly different from the past. Today, for example, it is rare for several generations of one family to share the same house or even the same neighborhood or town. And in many more households, all the adults work outside the home. Thus, caring for someone at home can involve a dramatic shift in living arrangements and family interactions. In "Home Health Care: A Complete Guide for Patients and Their Families," to be published soon by W.W. Norton and priced at $22.50, JoAnn Friedman says not everyone is cut out to be a giver or a recipient of homecare. The care-giver, she writes, must act as "a manager, a consultant and a collaborator" with those who perform the necessary medical services. And the potential care-giver must assess whether a particular patient is best cared for at home. The most appropriate candidate, she says, is generally someone who "doesn't require constant medical and nursing supervision, and who has a home to go back to." In "The Home Hospital" (Basic Books, 1982), Lois Barclay Murphy notes that guilt or a sense of obligation is not an appropriate reason to assume the task of care-giver. Murphy also advises the personality of the patient be considered when deciding to become a care-giver. People who were crotchety, demanding and irascible when healthy should not be expected to have an improved disposition when sick. Friedman writes that it is easy for the care-giver to fall into the trap of doing too much and taking over too completely the life of the sick or disabled person. As she outlines them, the responsibilities of caregivers include the following: • They should learn as much as possible about the illness in question. • They should analyze the emotional, physical and medical needs of the patient and how these might change in the future. • They should assess how the patient is likely to deal with the situation. • Their role should be envisioned as one that fosters maximum independence in the patient. • Family, friends and health-care professionals can be recruited to help meet the needs of the patient. • They should remember to take care of themselves, allowing time and space to remain physically and emotionally healthy. As pointed out recently in Patient Care magazine, "respite care" for the care-giver, such as relief time provided by bringing in a community volunteer or by sending the patient to an adult day-care center, can ease the caregiver's burdens. One of the most valuable parts of Friedman's book is a long list of "tips for daily living" to enable people with varying disabilities to function as independently as possible.

Milestones Minnie Lillibridge marks 90th birthday CLAY CENTER - The highlight of Minnie Lillibridge's recent 90th birthday observance was a greeting card from President Ronald Reagan. A resident of Medical Lodge, she was honored with two celebrations, one with 15 of her relatives and another with fellow residents at the lodge. The honoree has seven living children: Jack of Grand Island, Neb., Lester of Lawrence, Don and Mrs. Raymond (Thelma) Veesart of Topeka, Mrs. John (Lenora) Green of Albuquerque, N.M., and Mrs. Delmar (Avis) Crawford and Mrs. Duane (Ruth) Wilson of Greenleaf. A daughter, Mable Hill, is deceased. There are 19 grandchildren, 33 great-grandchildren and nine great- great-grandchildren. Mrs. Lillibridge was born Minnie Griffin Jan. 18,1896, in Hebron, Neb. She grew up near Lawrence, then lived in Clay Center. She later married John Mathias "Matt" Lillibridge, and the couple farmed in Washington County most of their wedded lives. He died in 1972. The celebrant grew a large garden each year when her children were small; her hobbies have been crocheting, crafts and playing the piano. Federal spending worried Nixon President Nixon disclosed plans for cuts in aid to hospitals, schools and urban areas in 1973 as he appealed to the U.S. to pressure Con- guess to hold down federal spending..

"But the teen is still 17 and still dead." Ackley is proud of HOTLINE'S record in preventing suicide. Since the phone service began in 1983, volunteers have intervened in 25 cases, she says. And this is only one area of need in Salina; her volunteers answer 200 calls of various kinds per month. Salina citizens are supportive of HOTLINE'S function, "morally if not financially," Ackley says. HOTLINE funds always are short, although the agency receives money from the local United Way. Like Pollyanna on a soapbox, Ackley says it's "unforgivable" that United Way doesn't make its goal. This year will be a real test for all social agencies. "I wish people knew that. They need to take responsibility for their community." She says she hopes one day to have the funds to expand telephone services to latchkey children and elderly shut-ins in Salina. He/ dedication to helping others evolved from childhood; her father was a doctor, her mother was a community volunteer. Ackley says after being married a few years, she also felt a responsibility to pay her dues for a good life. "We can't always take, or the well runs dry." As Ackley passed the 40-year mark, life experience translated into marketable skills, a possibility for others in her age bracket, she says. "I'm a humanist, not a women's libber. There are no limitations; if you think you can (accomplish a goal), it's possible." What's more, the milestone made Ackley realize her mortality. "I know I can do more before time runsot*" . . »
