Classic Victorian Home on Shinnecock Bay Asks $3.9M

By Catherine McGrath

Those looking for a home with an outstanding view of the Shinnecock Bay found their perfect match at 13A Lighthouse Road in Hampton Bays. It hit the market at $3.995 million.

The 3,006-square-foot home is set on just under one acre that includes a garage, pool, and stairs to the beach. Having been built in 1911, the five-bedroom home is now 110 years old and has been fully renovated.

This three-story, classic Victorian home with eye-catching royal blue shutters and a circular driveway is located just seconds from Dune Road and the ocean beyond it.

The front yard offers two entryways to the home — a front and side door. The covered porch wraps around the entire house providing ample, shaded seating for friends and family to enjoy.

Guests are greeted with hardwood floors expanding throughout the entire house. The living room is highlighted by the brick fireplace and a grand staircase leading to the second floor and third floors.

The kitchen offers abundant butcher block counter space, a large, stainless steel refrigerator, a dining area, and many cabinets. There is also a game room off the kitchen with a pool table to keep busy before dinner.

The upper levels house five bedrooms and three bathrooms with a plethora of natural lighting coming through the windows. There is also an extra room that can be used for a gym or work studio.

The outside is perfectly manicured and is a great, secluded area for children to play. A one-car garage on the property offers a cabana to keep cool while spending the day by the heated, gunite pool. The pool area is fenced in and surrounded by a brick patio. The stairs in the backyard allow residents to access the uniquely private beach on Shinnecock Bay.

This property is listed with Deirdre DeVita of Sotheby’s International Realty and hit the market recently. A view like this is difficult to beat and does not come around often.

A Long Island nurse who was the first person in the United States to receive an approved Covid-19 vaccine was grand marshal of the Hometown Heroes parade honoring the pandemic’s essential workers in Manhattan on Wednesday.

Sandra Lindsay, of Port Washington, the director of patient care services for critical care at Northwell Health’s Long Island Jewish Medical Center, had previously been honored at a White House ceremony by President Joseph R. Biden with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Outstanding Americans by Choice.

“It is truly an honor and privilege to serve as the grand marshal in the Hometown Heroes ticker-tape parade and represent all health care and essential workers whose heroic efforts saved lives during the Covid-19 pandemic,” Lindsay said.

She became the first person in the United States to receive the Covid-19 vaccine on Dec. 14, 2020.

Several other Long Islanders participated, including three essential workers representing Mount Sinai South Nassau, a hospital in Oceanside that has treated more than 6,000 residents with Covid-19 since March 2020.

The parade, dubbed “Hometown Heroes,” was the largest ticker-tape parade to grace New York City in history and the first procession in almost two years. Kicking off at 11 a.m. in Battery Park, the event was helmed by Mayor Bill de Blasio, First Lady Chirlane Irene McCray, and Lindsay.

“Let’s thank our health care heroes! You guys are amazing! Thank you to the nurses, thank you to the doctors, thank you to the technicians — everybody who made the hospitals work during the crisis, you are our heroes. Thank you,” de Blasio said as Mount Sinai and other hospital workers marched past a stage with a sign reading, “No stopping New York.”

The echoing sound of drums, bagpipes, horns, and musical performances by more than 10 bands resounded through the streets as essential workers marched through Broadway to the delight of thousands of spectators.

New Suozzi Legislation Addresses Financing of Long-Term Care for the Elderly

By Milette Millington

U.S. Rep. Tom Suozzi (D-Glen Cove) on Thursday, July 1, introduced federal legislation that addresses financing of long-term care for elderly Americans.

The bill, dubbed the Well-Being Insurance for Seniors to be at Home (WISH) Act, comes as America’s aging population is skyrocketing

Every day, roughly 10,000 Americans turn 65, and by 2050, the population over 65 will almost double and the population over 85 will triple. At the same time, the number of family members available to care for these aging Americans is decreasing because families are smaller and more spread out than they used to be.

“We have a storm coming, with the number of disabled elders expected to double in the coming years. Fewer family caregivers are available for these aging Americans and the market for long-term care insurance is not currently sufficient to address these demographic challenges,” said Suozzi.

Specifically, the legislation would create a public-private partnership to provide long-term care insurance for older Americans so they can age at home if they wish instead of needing to spend down their life savings and enter Medicaid-funded nursing homes.

In order to do this, the bill would create a new federal Long-Term Care Insurance Trust Fund that would pay for the “catastrophic” period of long-term care for those who need many years of it. To pay for this federal trust fund, workers and their employers would each pay 0.3% of workers wages in a social insurance tax.

Additionally, the measure would enable private insurance companies to offer affordable coverage plans for elderly Americans’ initial years of potential disability.

Economic and health care experts commended Suozzi for proposing the bill, and acknowledged its importance, now and in the near future.

“The nation’s long-term care system is broken. The WISH Act’s new spending is paid for with a payroll tax, and may even reduce deficits by lifting some of the burden of long-term care costs currently imposed on the Medicaid program,” said Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

“It would help revive the private long-term care insurance industry and make policies more affordable, thus protecting the savings of millions of hard-working Americans, in a fiscally responsible way,” said Stuart Butler, Senior Fellow of Economic Studies at the Brookings Institution.

Katie Smith Sloan, president and CEO of LeadingAge, pointed out the fact that many Americans will need more help than what their families can provide.

“This legislation recognizes a simple reality: we’re all growing older. Each of us, if we’re lucky, will live well into our eighth or ninth decade of life. It’s time for our policymakers to recognize these realities, and provide critical, long overdue support,” Sloan said.

Marc Cohen, co-director of the LeadingAge LTSS Center at the University of Massachusetts- Boston, called the bill is an American approach for dealing with the issue of financing long-term services and support for the growing number of Americans in the elderly population.

“This innovative and consequential program represents a great stride forward in making aging in place an attainable reality for all,” Cohen said.

Suozzi recalled that all four of his grandparents lived in his house when he was growing up with his mother, a former operating room nurse, providing the bulk of the caregiving.

“Both of my parents passed away a few years ago. My mom was 93 and my dad was 95. Fortunately, both were able to age comfortably at home with the assistance of home health aides,” Suozzi said. “The WISH Act would save the Medicaid program and millions of Americans from financial ruin, would allow people to age at home with dignity, and would create millions of good-paying, middle-class jobs in the home health care industry.”

Prioritize Exercise With These Work Out Techniques

exercise
Physical activity is one of the most important things seniors can do for their health, one that can potentially prevent many health problems associated with aging.

Exercise is a vital component of a healthy lifestyle. By making exercise part of their day-to-day routines, people of all ages, including men and women older than 65, can greatly improve their overall health.

The American Academy of Family Physicians notes that seniors should aspire to be as active as possible. Exercise is a great way to incorporate physical activity into your daily routine and has been linked to reduced risk for diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Though adults with chronic illnesses may be hesitant to exercise, the AAFP notes that it’s possible for men and women who have been diagnosed with such conditions to exercise safely. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that regular physical activity is one of the most important things seniors can do for their health, one that can potentially prevent many health problems associated with aging.

FREQUENCY OF EXERCISE 

Seniors, particularly those who have not exercised much in the past, may not know how much exercise they need to reap the full rewards of physical activity. Though it’s best to discuss exercise with a physician prior to beginning a new regimen, various public health agencies advise seniors to get at least 2.5 hours of moderate aerobic exercise each week. Brisk walking is one example of moderate aerobic exercise. Seniors who want to sweat a little more when exercising can replace moderate aerobic exercise with 1 hour and 15 minutes of vigorous exercise, such as jogging, each week.

IS STRENGTH TRAINING SAFE FOR SENIORS?

The CDC advises seniors to incorporate muscle-strengthening activities into their weekly fitness routines twice per week. Lifting waits, working with resistance bands, heavy gardening, and even some forms of yoga qualify as muscle-strengthening activities. Exercises that use your body weight for resistance, such as sit-ups and push-ups, also can help build strength. Always speak with a physician before beginning a muscle-strengthening exercise regimen and, if possible, work with a personal trainer, especially if you’re a novice.

WHEN TO STOP A WORKOUT

It’s imperative that seniors recognize when to stop working out. Exercising more than is recommended by your doctor can increase the risk of illness or injury. In addition, stop exercising if any of the following symptoms appear: dizziness or shortness of breath, chest pain or pressure, swollen joints, nausea, tightness in muscles or joints, pain anywhere in the body, throbbing or burning sensations.

Exercise can help seniors stay healthy and feel more energetic throughout the day. Before beginning a new regimen, seniors should discuss physical activity with their physicians.
