Seniors Real Estate Specialist Newsletter – Helping Seniors Live Better!



Consumer Newsletter – July 2012

Seniors Real Estate Specialist Newsletter – Helping Seniors Live Better!


By Elyse Umlauf-Garneau

Fend Off Loneliness

Caretakers of elderly parents and relatives often feel relieved once they’ve resolved the housing  and aging-in-place challenges. But a key missing piece of that care puzzle could be the seniors’ social and mental well-being.

Study results released in June 2012 by the University of California San Francisco ( show a direct correlation between loneliness and poor health among the elderly.

It found that loneliness can affect a person’s ability to perform daily activities, such as upper extremity tasks, climbing stairs, and walking. Moreover, people who identified themselves as lonely had a 59 percent greater risk of decline and a 45 percent greater risk of death.

If you suspect that your loved ones are lonely, getting them out and involved could help them fend off boredom, isolation, and loneliness.

Here are eight ideas:




1. Art as therapy. Try an art class, but one that isn’t strictly for seniors. Your loved ones will meet people of all ages, broaden their social horizon, and learn a new skill.  And just because someone can’t draw doesn’t mean they can’t be a successful artist. Other media include pottery, printmaking, and fiber arts.

2. Computer literacy. Widen your parents’ and elderly relatives’ world by teaching them how to use a computer, and introduce them to Facebook, blogging and Twitter.

A Pew Research report ( found that seniors really take to the online life. For many, using the internet and e-mail has become a daily habit.

Before they make their online debut, be sure that seniors know the risks and what precautions to take to protect their accounts and their privacy.

Provide some basics on searching for sites specific to their interests. There’s for bookworms, for knitters, and for eco-minded people.

3. Meet-ups. The site,, lets people interested in a given topic or activity find one another online then organize in-person  get-togethers.  You can find book clubs, art outings, and political activism events, as well as people who are interested in discussing Shakespeare and practicing ballroom dancing.

4. Man’s best friend. There’s  a reason that dogs are called man’s best friend. They bring joy and laughter, they’re affectionate, and they provide companionship. In addition,  daily walks with dogs force seniors to get all-important exercise and help them connect with other dog owners.

Just take a look at local parks during dog-walking hours. You see dogs romping and pet owners schmoozing. A dog could be the gateway to better health and stronger social connections for your loved one.

5. Mind share. Suggest volunteering, but not at a place where there are sad, distressed people. Hospitals, for example, might not be the place to lift a persons’ spirit.

But zoos, conservatories, and kid-centered activities all can be uplifting. And if your relatives have special talents to share, help them find places where they can teach their skills to others.  Search for volunteer opportunities at

6. Tutoring. Your relatives’ knowledge could be helpful for tutoring programs for kids needing math and reading help or to participants in adult literacy programs. Plus, the one-on-one relationship that develops can be satisfying and beneficial for both parties.

Find opportunities by getting in touch with local schools and religious institutions or search for U.S. opportunities at In Canada, visit and Or search your province for regional and city-specific organizations, such as British Columbia’s and Ottawa’s Also, such sites help you locate volunteer activities beyond tutoring.

7. Political activism. This is an election year in the United States, so campaigns are on the hunt for volunteers. If your relatives are politically active, there’s likely a campaign that can tap their skills over the coming months.

8. Inclusive celebrations. Invite elderly neighbors to dinner parties, backyard BBQs and neighborhood social events. If transportation or walking is a problem, they may decline. So when you extend the invitation, offer to pick them up and take them home.

A place to vent

Who hasn’t had a bad experience dealing with a credit card problem? Typically you’re left to resolve problems on your own with your financial institution.

And you think your issue is an isolated incident.

But now there’s a place to find out that you’re not alone. And to complain.

Just this month, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) ( gave the public access to a beta version of a database that tracks credit card complaints.

Visitors can get a sense of the most common consumer gripes, the card issuers that people are complaining about, and they can  also see how effectively  financial institutions resolve problems.

The CFPB also lets consumers log complaints and find resolutions to the credit card problems that plague them. CFPB accepts, screens, and investigates consumer complaints and forwards them to the financial institution. Those institutions have a set period to respond to and resolve the problem.

Submit a complaint  at and search the database,, to get more insight on common complaints.  Billing disputes and disagreements about APR and interest rates top CFPB’s list of gripes.

One aim of the database is greater transparency, and it also can help you when you’re deciding which institutions to do business with.

Though this database is focused on credit cards, the CFPB is considering developing similar databases for other consumer financial products and services.

Coming home from the hospital

Doctors do a great job of explaining the medical aspects of recovery from surgical procedures.

But they’re not always great about outlining the practical day-to-day challenges that caregivers need to address. To make your patient’s recovery easier in the days after a surgery, be sure to understand and plan for the non-medical aspects of daily care.

Here are some considerations:

1. Gear. Find out what extra things to have on hand to keep the person comfortable. Small pillows may be needed to prop up an arm or an ankle. Towels can be rolled up to support the back. Cloth baby diapers can prevent chafing and neck strain when someone is wearing a sling.

The bathroom can be especially dangerous, so consider adding grab bars or renting stools and shower chairs. Also, ask about the strategies and other devices that will boost your patient’s comfort and safety.

2. Clothing. Zippers and buttons suddenly become difficult to operate when you’ve had certain surgeries. Think about the clothes that will be easiest to get on and off and which garments will afford your loved ones the greatest independence.

An arm injury, for example, can make putting on t-shirts and pullover sweaters impossible. So think oversized shirts with Velcro closures as an alternative.

3. Safe house. Even if your spouse or parent normally is nimble, surgery can temporarily diminish their agility. Be certain that the house is safe for them to navigate, especially if they’ll be taking pain medications that cause grogginess or if they’ll be using a wheelchair or walker.

Move furniture they can bump into, pick up throw rugs that can cause trips, and remove delicate decorative items from tables.

4. Medical-related duties. You could be charged with changing bandages, taking slings on and off, and managing other medical devices.  Be certain that you get some lessons on carrying out your duties before you leave the medical center.

5. Smooth moves. Talk to nurses and physical therapists about the proper placement and bracing of walkers and other assistive devices. Helping patients in and out of bed and up from chairs doesn’t entail brute force. Learn to protect your body when you’re moving and shifting patients and understand how best to provide support.

Real Estate Matters: News & Issues for the Mature Market

Real Estate Professionals Prepare Clients for Commercial Property Collapse

Despite the fragile progress made in the residential property market, real estate experts continue to predict a steep decline in the commercial real estate market.

“The last several years have seen liberal lending in the commercial market,” said Thomas Bible, Broker for VIP Executive Realty in Florida. “Though not as pervasive or severe as in the residential market, this reckless lending is possibly more threatening to our economy.”

Predictions for the commercial real estate market (which includes shopping centers, strip malls, apartment buildings, office buildings and warehouses) appear universally bleak.

The “Emerging Trends in Real Estate 2010” report issued by the Urban Land Institute and PricewaterhouseCoopers acknowledges that most investors will recognize massive losses in the commercial real estate market. Value declines will eventually total 40 to 50 percent off market highs. This will likely be the worst registered since the Great Depression.

Surveys in the report also indicate that 2010 will be the worst time for investors to sell properties in the report’s 30-year history. According to the report, “A lackluster economic recovery characterized by problematic job growth will hamper the pace of any real estate market resurgence.”

According to Deutsche Bank commercial real estate analyst Richard Parkus, this is just the tip of the iceberg. He predicts huge losses and a huge number of banks failing as a result of the declining commercial real estate market.

As more commercial real estate property owners see tenants go bankrupt, downsize or invoke their escape clauses, they have begun to feel the serious effects of the economy. In fact, the national vacancy rate is expected to reach 18.5 percent to 19 percent by the end of 2010, the highest recorded since 1986. Without paying tenets, commercial property owners have little cash flow to make their impending balloon loan payments and may face foreclosure.

Some commercial real estate owners are taking a proactive approach to avoid foreclosure and protect their assets against financial decline and lowered property values. In fact, more and more real estate brokers are beginning to hear from their clients seeking help with a solution to turn their properties into viable assets.

“A few commercial property owners are beginning to look outside the relationship they have with their lender’s local representative, because the real decision making rarely happens at the local level,” said Mr. Bible “They want an equitable solution that maintains the relationship, so that everyone wins.”

Guardian Solutions, a commercial loan restructuring company based in Clearwater, Florida, has seen an increase in the number of real estate professionals contacting them in hopes of helping their clients.

“Property owners are increasingly feeling the stress of this down economy and can foresee only two viable options: holding on to a non-performing asset or foreclosure,” said Jeramie Concklin, Chief Executive Officer of Guardian Solutions. “Luckily, knowledgeable brokers have begun to realize the benefits of loan restructuring and are subsequently pointing their clients toward reputable loan restructuring companies like ours. It’s a win-win-win situation for the owners, the brokers and the lenders.”

“This recovery is going to take even longer than expected,” said Mr. Bible. “The commercial real estate market follows residential by about 18 months. I recommend that property owners seek assistance early in the game rather than wait for some sort of turnaround.”

According to Mr. Bible, commercial real estate professionals can serve their clients best by referring them to a reputable commercial loan modification company. Loan restructuring involves a multi-pronged approach to turn a failing commercial property into a viable asset. This may involve negotiating a modification to the original loan, revising an owner’s business plan, expenditure reductions, revamped pricing structures for franchise fees and legal maneuvers to protect assets.

“Having a third party loan restructuring company in your corner who is tenacious, a good negotiator and proactive is what every commercial property owner needs right now,” said Mr. Bible. “A good loan restructuring company can ease the entire process from the leasing and management of the asset, to the firm that will modify their debt structure.”

“Guardian Solutions can help commercial property owners restructure their loans by first evaluating an owner’s asset performance and market potential. From that type of information and other analytical data we compile, we can create a comprehensive restructuring proposal including strategies for modifying the owner’s current mortgage with the lender.” said Ira Friedman, Chief Operating Officer for Guardian Solutions.

Concklin added, “Armed with factual information and a realistic business plan, Guardian Solutions’ mediation staff enter negotiations with the lender to secure the most advantageous terms for the client, while addressing the concerns of the lending institutions.”

Commercial Real Estate Healing Very Slowly

Commercial property prices have dropped ~40%  since 2 years ago.  However, in a surprise quarter prices have increased 4%.  Once quarter doesn’t make a trend but it does show that there’s a heartbeat.  Despite this good news there’s still plenty of gloom and doom on our horizon.  10% of malls are expected to close and as many as 200,000 businesses may go under next year.
