CALENDAR | CONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 ORLANDO National Philanthropy Day, November 15, is the special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy --and those people active in the philanthropic community-have made to our lives, our communities and our world. What makes philanthropy so special is that no one is required to give of themselves. ere are no national laws or regulations which mandate that you must volunteer or get involved. Philanthropy is so powerful and inspiring precisely because it is voluntarythat through the goodness of our hearts, through our need to connect, through our desire to see a better world, we come together to improve the quality of life for all people indicated this week Nick Buchholz, executive director of the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation speaking at the nonprots operational center on So. Orange Ave. in Orange County. e Foundation is entrusted to raise funds to assist in the care of patients and families facing life-limiting illnesses throughout seven central Florida counties, including Orange County. Any and all funds raised in Orange county are directed towards patient care within Orange County. Carol Felder, Cornerstone Hospice Foundation regional development director in the nonprots Orange/Osceola region, spearheaded a recent Chubb Charity Challenge fundraising activity through which Maitland-based BB&T J. Rolfe Davis Insurance raised $25,000 to be presented to the Foundation in coming days. Your teams commitment to support Cornerstone Hospice is a tremendous source of encouragement in our work to improve hospice care. We work every day with hospice patient challenges and those who love and care for them expressed executive director Nick Buchholz to BB&T management in appreciation to the $25,000 raised for Hospice patient care. About to take place in a few days on Tuesday, November 27 at 7:00 p.m. is Mayower Residents Evening Social Hour. is is an opportunity for the residents of Mayower of Winter Park Assisted Living to learn more about the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation, about the need for a local hospice house and opportunities to leave their legacy will be discussed. What does philanthropy mean? Broken down to its Latin roots, this word literally means love of humankind. Any way in which you show some love for your fellow human is an act of philanthropy -in other words, each one of us is a philanthropist in some way! If you give your time, your talent, or your treasure in any form, you are a philanthropist. time and talent have quantiable, practical value. Foundation supports Cornerstone Salutes! military recognitions Over the past three years Cornerstone Hospice Foundation has been supporting an eort to bring a military recognition to veterans of all branches of the U.S. armed forces residing within our service care area via our Cornerstone Salutes! program. rough this eort conducted under VA guidelines, we present a commemorative pin and a Certicate of Appreciation sometimes to an individual veteran, other times to dozens of veterans at a time residing at an assisted living facility, at a nursing home, sometimes at their own home. It is not necessary for these veterans to be under Hospice care. Many of us are philanthropic in one way or another every day: perhaps you donate annually to local organizations in support of environmental protection, performing arts, or those in need; maybe you give your knowledge of nance by serving on a social prot board, your skill as a nurse as a local health clinic; or your abilities as a coach to assist your childs school; or possibly you give your time stung envelopes for a fundraising or visiting with an elderly friend. Many of our neighbors, colleagues, and friends are making a dierence in these ways and more. In fact, eightynine percent of American households give philanthropically donating over 300 billion dollars and eight billion hours of volunteer time to a wide variety of charitable causes every year. Since 1984, Cornerstone Hospice and Palliative Care, a nonprot community-based healthcare organization, has provided care and services to central Florida patients and families experiencing lifelimiting illnesses through patient care largely spearheaded by the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation. If you would like to learn more how to make a gift or contribution to the Foundation, call Carol Felder (407)304-2608 or toll-free (800)6796088 anywhere in Orange or Osceola counties.

Page 15 By Geo DeckerJosh Garricks photography show From Both Sides Now exhibited nothing less than one would expect from an established photographer with a clear vision. Garrick displayed a living vision of Greece which demonstrated his personal love for the subject matter and his respect for past artists and architects. Most Americans are presented with these architectural achievements and ancient art through text books. By doing so, they appear lifeless. Garricks portrayal gives these historical achievements life. I had never seen Greek art or architecture presented in such a way where one could truly see the breath of life in every chisel and every piece of stone and marble used. His photography of the Greek statues made it seem as if the statues were living creatures. Instead of presenting them as photographs of art; he chose to depict them as if they were alive and well. By doing so, he captured emotion within the art that I had not seen before. His choice to print said images on aluminum is not only unique, but brings out the contrasts within these images and helps to emphasize the importance of detail of these subjects. The photography of the Greek architecture focused on the beauty and uniqueness of the structures. Personally, this was a treat. As a fan of architecture, viewing the historic buildings on which many of our most important American structures were based was breathtaking. The angles used and focus of many of his architectural shots is inspirational and demonstrated the importance of the historical implications. The most fascinating part of the show was the Athens Reigns installation. Athens Reigns consisted of several columns of 5x7 photographs printed to transparent vinyl and pressed to Plexiglas. Hung by rope, patrons are able to interact with his photography by walking through and picking up each hanging piece as they pleased. The overall eect of this installation allowed the patron and the artist to connect. Whereas with a typical hanging, patrons cannot touch, just observe. The ability to both touch and see his artwork allowed each patron to take more in and feel as if they were a part of the exhibit instead of just an attendee.Ancient Greece Brought to Life in Photos by Josh GarrickFrom Both Sides Now -Photographs of the Treasures of Ancient Greece by Josh Garrick at Art & History Museums -Maitland.

Celebrating Life, Family and the Power of HopeTHE POWER OF HOPE Is the Strength to Begin Again -Andy Akins May the God of hope ll you with joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may over ow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit -Romans 15:13McCoy Federal Credit Union Offers Financial Counseling to All Members Tools to Build a Better Financial FutureImagine someone sitting down with you and giving you personalized guidance when it comes to your nances. McCoy Federal Credit Union offers just that. Financial counseling is offered free to all members through Accel, McCoys personal money management partner. The program, developed by GreenPath Debt Solutions, helps members with everything from learning how to manage a checking account for the rst time to buying a house. This is a chance for members of McCoy to receive free, impartial advice from an experienced, professional credit counselor who will treat you with respect and compassion. Financial counseling sessions are focused entirely on a members concerns and are conducted over the phone. Members of McCoy are not limited in the number of sessions, and after the initial counseling session a member will receive a detailed budget worksheet and action plan. The Counselor will thoroughly assess a members household income and expenses, nd places to save, and develop a customized budget and action plan to help achieve a members nancial goals. The initial counseling session usually lasts 60 minutes and can be done over the phone at a time that is convenient: One of the objectives of the nancial counseling session is to build an accurate budget and create a clear picture of how the member currently spends their money. The next step is to determine what changes the member could make in their personal budget to help them achieve their nancial goals. The more accurate the information the member can provide the more productive the counseling session tends to be. So having pay slips, details of household expenses along with credit statements can really help, says Catherine Wall, Partner Relations Specialist, GreenPath, Inc. No need to jump into buying a house before rst nding out what you can afford. We do Pre-purchase Housing Counseling to help the member prepare for home ownership; the member can then make an informed decision before committing to buy a home, says Wall. Counselors can help save members money, too. A late fee on your credit report may seem like a small issue, but if that late fee impacts your credit score that fee can cost you in higher car insurance rates or a higher car payment, for example, says Wall. Members can take advantage of a Credit Report Review; the counselor will help the member evaluate their credit report, learn to dispute inaccurate information, and provide guidance to help the member improve their credit score. We encourage members to go to www.annualcreditreport.com where they can receive a free copy of their report once a year from the three main credit reporting companies, says Wall. Accel counselors want to help the member get value from every dollar they earn and spend. For those members that are struggling and out on a nancial limb, the counselor can help the member put an action plan in place to help address their nancial dif culty before the branch breaks! Wall says. Next month, learn ways McCoy helps you teach your children about scal responsibility. From allowances, giving, spending, goals and savings! Small changes make a big difference. Thats why, coming into the holiday season, were bringing you inspirational editorials that can help shake things up in your life.

Make a holiday priority list and post it. Keep the list short; you cant prioritize everyone or everything. Believe it or not the rst thing on this list should be YOU. I know it sounds sel sh but if you are not taking care of yourself you will not be able to serve and love others well. Dont forget to refer to the list throughout the season. 2. Take care of yourself physically. This goes hand in hand with prioritizing yourself. Usually when things get stressful we do the complete opposite of what will help us. Make sure youre getting enough sleep, REM sleep is especially important to emotional health. Exercise and balance what youre eating and drinking. Indulging too much can impair your ability to handle stress. 3. Say No. Weve all felt the pressure to volunteer here, or attend a party there, but lets be honest, you cant do it all and remain sane. Allow yourself the freedom to say no. Determine now, how many parties or functions youll attend and stick to it. Then come up with creative ways to send your regrets, perhaps with some holiday cookies--it will help the no go down easier. 4. Schedule time for yourself. As you schedule your holiday season, make sure to include down time for you. Do what energizes you during this time, and be intentional. Read a book, journal, have some quiet time. Youll be tempted to ll this time with tasks, but if you can refrain youll be more energized to tackle the list later. 5. Re ect. Dont lose sight of what is really important this time of year. Start every day off with some re ection and prayer. Beginning your day focused on God remembering why we celebrate and giving thanks will help put the rest of the day into perspective.Remember this time of year does not have to be exhausting emotionally and physically. By implementing these tools you can nd yourself not just going through the motions but really enjoying this time of year. By Julia Jancek The countdown to Thanksgiving has begun! Ive nished decorating and I cant seem to get enough of the cinnamon-apple-pumpkin pie smell so Im lighting candles everywhere. I love this time of year, well if Im being honest I mostly love this time of year. I think for most of us the Holidays are a good idea in theory. We go into them excited, ready for family, food and fun, but somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas most of us wind up exhausted, frustrated and searching for a place to hide. If we take a step back, however, and go into the holidays with some intention, we can give ourselves the emotional strength needed to deal with the craziness and the calm to really enjoy what theyre all about. Here are 5 tips for a sane holiday season.Holidays with Family: This year, both sets of in-laws are visiting our home for the holidays. It will be an occasion for celebration and good cheer, unless the conversation turns to the recent national election. In that case, well be cleaning pumpkin pie off the walls. Seasonal family gatherings may be a mixed bag for you. On one hand, you look forward to these reunions while, on the other, you dread their tensions. Here are some common frustrations: Combined with the physical exhaustion, nancial strain, and seasonal depression that often accompany this time of year, its no wonder that family events often cause more anxiety than anticipation. If this scenario is familiar to you, let me give you some hope. You have more control over these experiences than you may realize. Your family holidays will become more pleasurable if you follow these four steps: De ne your limits ahead of time. Write out all of the seasonal obligations you think you have: gifts to buy, food to prepare, services to provide, days to share, etc. Now consider how much of your time and money you can honestly spend and still remain content, healthy, and secure. If youre married, discuss this with your spouse. Once youve de ned your limits, write them down and take control by determining to live within these limits. Within your limits, focus on giving. Now that youve established some boundaries, go through the list of every family member youll be with and consider ways you can make the family time good for them. Be a relationship Santa. Decide what gifts of word or deed you can give to each person. Make a list. And, yes, you can even give to the ones who have been naughty. If you do this, you will be acting with intentional sel essness. If done sincerely, you will likely notice a signi cant shift in your attitude and experience pleasure in each act of giving. Ask for help. If you nd yourself feeling overwhelmed or tired, ask for help. Dont accept the role of saint or martyr. If nobody is available or willing to help, consider leaving some things undone. You may be spending a great deal of energy on tasks that really arent that important. What good is insisting on the perfect decorations, meals, or other accommodations if your are left exhausted or resentful? Change one thing. Established traditions may often include routines you do simply because they have always been done that way. They have become social habits. As you go through another holiday, watch for those practices that have become commonplace, even though they do not strengthen or satisfy the family. If you recognize any of these, pick at least one, write it out on your calendar, and determine to change it next year.Keep them Festive NOT Frustrating!Prior to earning his Masters Degree in Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University, Tim spent nearly 20 years as a leader and teacher, focusing on spiritual and personal growth issues for individuals and families.

Visit www.healthaction.biz Alert to Caregivers of Dependents with Special Needs: You May Need to Change the Beneciaries of Your Life Insurance, Annuities, IRAs or Other Retirement Accounts The process of special needs planning involves developing a total plan to provide for the dependents lifetime care. Ownership of assets must be coordinated with legal documents (such as trusts, wills and beneciary designations) to avoid the loss or reduction of any government or other benets for which the dependent may be eligible. Assets can pass from one individual to another individual in a variety of ways. Assets may be transferred by sale or by gift. At death, assets may pass through a will or under intestacy laws and be distributed by the estate. Assets may be distributed by trusts. Certain assets will be distributed through operation of law. These include assets held jointly (such as real property held in joint tenancy, or as tenants in the entirety) that avoid the probate process and go directly to another named person. Other assets can pass through operation of contract. These usually include life insurance policies, annuities, IRAs, and certain other types of retirement accounts that permit the owner to name a beneciary. These types of assets typically avoid the probate process (unless the estate is named beneciary), passing directly to the named beneciary. Even the very best plans can go astray if all the pieces of the puzzle are not pieced together correctly. Distributions specied in wills can result in money going directly to a person with special needs (for example, a provision that requires that the residuary estate be divided equally among the decedents children, with the share of any predeceased child being divided equally among that childs children or descendents of predeceased children). Payments made directly to a person with a disability can result in the reduction or even loss of government benets. How many caregivers of dependents with disabilities today have named their dependent as the beneciary on a group or individual life insurance policies, IRAs, 401(k) plans, prot sharing plans, or dened benet pension plans? How many people have forgotten whom they have named as beneciary? How many people never named a beneciary? When the caregiver dies, the terms of those policies and retirement plans will govern the distribution of the money usually requiring distribution to the named beneciary or, if none is named or living, to the estate. If the dependent with special needs receives the money, this could produce disastrous results. When planning for the nancial future of someone with special needs, all beneciaries of insurance policies, pension plans, IRAs, and annuities, need to be reviewed. If the caregivers have established a special needs trust for their dependent with special needs, the trust should be named as beneciary, so not to compromise their loved ones benet eligibility. One mistake, a forgotten policy, or a beneciary designation not updated, can unravel the best of plans! Due to the complexity of federal and state laws, you may require specially trained professionals to help you plan for the future of your dependent with special needs..

CALENDAR | C ONTINUED FROM PAGE 12 ORLANDO National Philanthropy Day, November 15, is the special day set aside to recognize and pay tribute to the great contributions that philanthropy --and those people active in the philanthropic community-have made to our lives, our communities and our world. What makes philanthropy so special is that no one is required to give of themselves. ere are no national laws or regulations which mandate that you must volunteer or get involved. Philanthropy is so powerful and inspiring precisely because it is voluntarythat through the goodness of our hearts, through our need to connect, through our desire to see a better world, we come together to improve the quality of life for all people indicated this week Nick Buchholz, executive director of the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation speaking at the nonprots operational center on So. Orange Ave. in Orange County. e Foundation is entrusted to raise funds to assist in the care of patients and families facing life-limiting illnesses throughout seven central Florida counties, including Orange County. Any and all funds raised in Orange county are directed towards patient care within Orange County. Carol Felder, Cornerstone Hospice Foundation regional development director in the nonprots Orange/Osceola region, spearheaded a recent Chubb Charity Challenge fundraising activity through which Maitland-based BB&T J. Rolfe Davis Insurance raised $25,000 to be presented to the Foundation in coming days. Your teams commitment to support Cornerstone Hospice is a tremendous source of encouragement in our work to improve hospice care. We work every day with hospice patient challenges and those who love and care for them expressed executive director Nick Buchholz to BB&T management in appreciation to the $25,000 raised for Hospice patient care. About to take place in a few days on Tuesday, November 27 at 7:00 p.m. is Mayower Residents Evening Social Hour. is is an opportunity for the residents of Mayower of Winter Park Assisted Living to learn more about the Cornerstone Hospice Foundation, about the need for a local hospice house and opportunities to leave their legacy will be discussed. What does philanthropy mean? Broken down to its Latin roots, this word literally means love of humankind. Any way in which you show some love for your fellow human is an act of philanthropy -in other words, each one of us is a philanthropist in some way! If you give your time, your talent, or your treasure in any form, you are a philanthropist. time and talent have quantiable, practical value. Foundation supports Cornerstone Salutes! military recognitions Over the past three years Cornerstone Hospice Foundation has been supporting an eort to bring a military recognition to veterans of all branches of the U.S. armed forces residing within our service care area via our Cornerstone Salutes! program. rough this eort conducted under VA guidelines, we present a commemorative pin and a Certicate of Appreciation sometimes to an individual veteran, other times to dozens of veterans at a time residing at an assisted living facility, at a nursing home, sometimes at their own home. It is not necessary for these veterans to be under Hospice care. Many of us are philanthropic in one way or another every day: perhaps you donate annually to local organizations in support of environmental protection, performing arts, or those in need; maybe you give your knowledge of nance by serving on a social prot board, your skill as a nurse as a local health clinic; or your abilities as a coach to assist your childs school; or possibly you give your time stung envelopes for a fundraising or visiting with an elderly friend.

Page 15 By Geo DeckerJosh Garricks photography show From Both Sides Now exhibited nothing less than one would expect from an established photographer with a clear vision. Garrick displayed a living vision of Greece which demonstrated his personal love for the subject matter and his respect for past artists and architects. Most Americans are presented with these architectural achievements and ancient art through text books. By doing so, they appear lifeless. Garricks portrayal gives these historical achievements life. I had never seen Greek art or architecture presented in such a way where one could truly see the breath of life in every chisel and every piece of stone and marble used. His photography of the Greek statues made it seem as if the statues were living creatures. Instead of presenting them as photographs of art; he chose to depict them as if they were alive and well. By doing so, he captured emotion within the art that I had not seen before. His choice to print said images on aluminum is not only unique, but brings out the contrasts within these images and helps to emphasize the importance of detail of these subjects. The photography of the Greek architecture focused on the beauty and uniqueness of the structures. Personally, this was a treat. As a fan of architecture, viewing the historic buildings on which many of our most important American structures were based was breathtaking. The angles used and focus of many of his architectural shots is inspirational and demonstrated the importance of the historical implications. The most fascinating part of the show was the Athens Reigns installation. Athens Reigns consisted of several columns of 5x7 photographs printed to transparent vinyl and pressed to Plexiglas. Hung by rope, patrons are able to interact with his photography by walking through and picking up each hanging piece as they pleased. The overall eect of this installation allowed the patron and the artist to connect. Whereas with a typical hanging, patrons cannot touch, just observe. The ability to both touch and see his artwork allowed each patron to take more in and feel as if they were a part of the exhibit instead of just an attendee.Ancient Greece Brought to Life in Photos by Josh GarrickFrom Both Sides Now -Photographs of the Treasures of Ancient Greece by Josh Garrick at Art & History Museums -Maitland.

Celebrating Life, Family and the Power of HopeTHE POWER OF HOPE Is the Strength to Begin Again -Andy Akins May the God of hope ll you with joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may over ow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit -Romans 15:13McCoy Federal Credit Union Offers Financial Counseling to All Members Tools to Build a Better Financial FutureImagine someone sitting down with you and giving you personalized guidance when it comes to your nances. McCoy Federal Credit Union offers just that. Financial counseling is offered free to all members through Accel, McCoys personal money management partner. The program, developed by GreenPath Debt Solutions, helps members with everything from learning how to manage a checking account for the rst time to buying a house. This is a chance for members of McCoy to receive free, impartial advice from an experienced, professional credit counselor who will treat you with respect and compassion. Financial counseling sessions are focused entirely on a members concerns and are conducted over the phone. Members of McCoy are not limited in the number of sessions, and after the initial counseling session a member will receive a detailed budget worksheet and action plan. The Counselor will thoroughly assess a members household income and expenses, nd places to save, and develop a customized budget and action plan to help achieve a members nancial goals. The initial counseling session usually lasts 60 minutes and can be done over the phone at a time that is convenient: One of the objectives of the nancial counseling session is to build an accurate budget and create a clear picture of how the member currently spends their money. The next step is to determine what changes the member could make in their personal budget to help them achieve their nancial goals. The more accurate the information the member can provide the more productive the counseling session tends to be. So having pay slips, details of household expenses along with credit statements can really help, says Catherine Wall, Partner Relations Specialist, GreenPath, Inc. No need to jump into buying a house before rst nding out what you can afford. We do Pre-purchase Housing Counseling to help the member prepare for home ownership; the member can then make an informed decision before committing to buy a home, says Wall. Counselors can help save members money, too. A late fee on your credit report may seem like a small issue, but if that late fee impacts your credit score that fee can cost you in higher car insurance rates or a higher car payment, for example, says Wall. Members can take advantage of a Credit Report Review; the counselor will help the member evaluate their credit report, learn to dispute inaccurate information, and provide guidance to help the member improve their credit score. We encourage members to go to www.annualcreditreport.com where they can receive a free copy of their report once a year from the three main credit reporting companies, says Wall. Accel counselors want to help the member get value from every dollar they earn and spend. For those members that are struggling and out on a nancial limb, the counselor can help the member put an action plan in place to help address their nancial dif culty before the branch breaks! Wall says. Next month, learn ways McCoy helps you teach your children about scal responsibility. From allowances, giving, spending, goals and savings! Small changes make a big difference. Thats why, coming into the holiday season, were bringing you inspirational editorials that can help shake things up in your life.

Make a holiday priority list and post it. Keep the list short; you cant prioritize everyone or everything. Believe it or not the rst thing on this list should be YOU. I know it sounds sel sh but if you are not taking care of yourself you will not be able to serve and love others well. Dont forget to refer to the list throughout the season. 2. Take care of yourself physically. This goes hand in hand with prioritizing yourself. Usually when things get stressful we do the complete opposite of what will help us. Make sure youre getting enough sleep, REM sleep is especially important to emotional health. Exercise and balance what youre eating and drinking. Indulging too much can impair your ability to handle stress. 3. Say No. Weve all felt the pressure to volunteer here, or attend a party there, but lets be honest, you cant do it all and remain sane. Allow yourself the freedom to say no. Determine now, how many parties or functions youll attend and stick to it. Then come up with creative ways to send your regrets, perhaps with some holiday cookies--it will help the no go down easier. 4. Schedule time for yourself. As you schedule your holiday season, make sure to include down time for you. Do what energizes you during this time, and be intentional. Read a book, journal, have some quiet time. Youll be tempted to ll this time with tasks, but if you can refrain youll be more energized to tackle the list later. 5. Re ect. Dont lose sight of what is really important this time of year. Start every day off with some re ection and prayer. Beginning your day focused on God remembering why we celebrate and giving thanks will help put the rest of the day into perspective.Remember this time of year does not have to be exhausting emotionally and physi cally. By implementing these tools you can nd yourself not just going through the motions but really enjoying this time of year. By Julia Jancek The countdown to Thanksgiving has begun! Ive nished decorating and I cant seem to get enough of the cinnamon-apple-pumpkin pie smell so Im lighting candles everywhere. I love this time of year, well if Im being honest I mostly love this time of year. I think for most of us the Holidays are a good idea in theory. We go into them excited, ready for family, food and fun, but somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas most of us wind up exhausted, frustrated and searching for a place to hide. If we take a step back, however, and go into the holidays with some intention, we can give ourselves the emotional strength needed to deal with the craziness and the calm to really enjoy what theyre all about. Here are 5 tips for a sane holiday season.Holidays with Family: This year, both sets of in-laws are visiting our home for the holidays. It will be an occasion for celebration and good cheer, unless the conversation turns to the recent national election. In that case, well be cleaning pumpkin pie off the walls. Seasonal family gatherings may be a mixed bag for you. On one hand, you look forward to these reunions while, on the other, you dread their tensions. Here are some common frustrations: Combined with the physical exhaustion, nancial strain, and seasonal depression that often accompany this time of year, its no wonder that family events often cause more anxiety than anticipation. If this scenario is familiar to you, let me give you some hope. You have more control over these experiences than you may realize. Your family holidays will become more pleasurable if you follow these four steps: De ne your limits ahead of time. Write out all of the seasonal obligations you think you have: gifts to buy, food to prepare, services to provide, days to share, etc. Now consider how much of your time and money you can honestly spend and still remain content, healthy, and secure. If youre married, discuss this with your spouse. Once youve de ned your limits, write them down and take control by determining to live within these limits. Within your limits, focus on giving. Now that youve established some boundaries, go through the list of every family member youll be with and consider ways you can make the family time good for them. Be a relationship Santa. Decide what gifts of word or deed you can give to each person. Make a list. And, yes, you can even give to the ones who have been naughty. If you do this, you will be acting with intentional sel essness. If done sincerely, you will likely notice a signi cant shift in your attitude and experience pleasure in each act of giving. Ask for help. If you nd yourself feeling overwhelmed or tired, ask for help. Dont accept the role of saint or martyr. If nobody is available or willing to help, consider leaving some things undone. You may be spending a great deal of energy on tasks that really arent that important. What good is insisting on the perfect decorations, meals, or other accommodations if your are left exhausted or resentful? Change one thing. Established traditions may often include routines you do simply because they have always been done that way. They have become social habits. As you go through another holiday, watch for those practices that have become commonplace, even though they do not strengthen or satisfy the family. If you recognize any of these, pick at least one, write it out on your calendar, and determine to change it next year.Keep them Festive NOT Frustrating!Prior to earning his Masters Degree in Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University, Tim spent nearly 20 years as a leader and teacher, focusing on spiritual and personal growth issues for individuals and families.

Visit www.healthaction.biz Alert to Caregivers of Dependents with Special Needs: You May Need to Change the Beneciaries of Your Life Insurance, Annuities, IRAs or Other Retirement Accounts The process of special needs planning involves developing a total plan to provide for the dependents lifetime care. Ownership of assets must be coordinated with legal documents (such as trusts, wills and beneciary designations) to avoid the loss or reduction of any government or other benets for which the dependent may be eligible. Assets can pass from one individual to another individual in a variety of ways. Assets may be transferred by sale or by gift. At death, assets may pass through a will or under intestacy laws and be distributed by the estate. Assets may be distributed by trusts. Certain assets will be distributed through operation of law. These include assets held jointly (such as real property held in joint tenancy, or as tenants in the entirety) that avoid the probate process and go directly to another named person. Other assets can pass through operation of contract. These usually include life insurance policies, annuities, IRAs, and certain other types of retirement accounts that permit the owner to name a beneciary. These types of assets typically avoid the probate process (unless the estate is named beneciary), passing directly to the named beneciary. Even the very best plans can go astray if all the pieces of the puzzle are not pieced together correctly. Distributions specied in wills can result in money going directly to a person with special needs (for example, a provision that requires that the residuary estate be divided equally among the decedents children, with the share of any predeceased child being divided equally among that childs children or descendents of predeceased children). Payments made directly to a person with a disability can result in the reduction or even loss of government benets. How many caregivers of dependents with disabilities today have named their dependent as the beneciary on a group or individual life insurance policies, IRAs, 401(k) plans, prot sharing plans, or dened benet pension plans? How many people have forgotten whom they have named as beneciary? How many people never named a beneciary? When the caregiver dies, the terms of those policies and retirement plans will govern the distribution of the money usually requiring distribution to the named beneciary or, if none is named or living, to the estate. If the dependent with special needs receives the money, this could produce disastrous results. When planning for the nancial future of someone with special needs, all beneciaries of insurance policies, pension plans, IRAs, and annuities, need to be reviewed. If the caregivers have established a special needs trust for their dependent with special needs, the trust should be named as beneciary, so not to compromise their loved ones benet eligibility. One mistake, a forgotten policy, or a beneciary designation not updated, can unravel the best of plans! Due to the complexity of federal and state laws, you may require specially trained professionals to help you plan for the future of your dependent with special needs.. A Special Needs Planner can work with your attorney and provide the nancial and insurance products that may be needed to complete your planning.
