Calling all Centenarians

Monmouth County to honor residents who are 100 plus years of age


HAZLET, NJ – “It’s never too early to plan your birthday celebration,” said Freeholder John Curley. “So, if you will be 100 years of age – or more – you should make plans to be part of Monmouth County’s Centenarian Celebration at noon on Monday, May 11.”

Curley recently announced plans for the third annual birthday party for centenarians that the County’s Office on Aging hosts together with at Regency Park Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, 3325 Highway 35 in Hazlet. Party plans include a luncheon, music, gifts and, of course, a birthday cake. 

“Regency is proud to co-host this event with the Monmouth County Office on Aging.  It is a wonderful opportunity for the Centenarians and their families to gather and share their stories, which are truly amazing,” Marie Barnes, Regency Park’s director of corporate marketing and public relations said. “We are also proud to announce we are world record holders, and listed in the publication of the 2015 Anniversary Edition of the Guinness Book of World Records for the Largest Gathering of Centenarians.”

“We want to invite all Monmouth County centenarians who will be 100 years old or older this year to join this celebration,” Curley said.

Defeating Alzheimer's by 2015

Written by

Of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States, Alzheimer’s disease is the only one for which there is no effective treatment. The disease has a staggering reach: Roughly one out of every five of us is at risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia in our lifetime. Caring for Alzheimer’s victims costs the world an estimated $604 billion each year in addition to the terrible personal costs to families. Its numbers are expected to triple to an estimated 115 million people by 2050. If nothing changes between now and then, not a single person will survive it.


In other words, Alzheimer’s is a slow-motion time bomb. The trouble is that the scale of the research has never met the size of the problem. And those of us who have worked in this field for decades have had limited success bringing attention to the magnitude of this deadly disorder.

But a more collaborative, focused approach between the public and private sectors is beginning to take hold. Scientists engaged in it are making quick progress that promises to ultimately transform Alzheimer’s from a death sentence into a preventable illness.

Affordable Care Act Information

Written by

About the Law

The Affordable Care Act puts consumers back in charge of their health care. Under the law, a new “Patient’s Bill of Rights” gives the American people the stability and flexibility they need to make informed choices about their health.

View Key Features of the Affordable Care Act or read a year-by-year overview of features.


  • Ends Pre-Existing Condition Exclusions for Children: Health plans can no longer limit or deny benefits to children under 19 due to a pre-existing condition.
  • Keeps Young Adults Covered: If you are under 26, you may be eligible to be covered under your parent’s health plan.
  • Ends Arbitrary Withdrawals of Insurance Coverage: Insurers can no longer cancel your coverage just because you made an honest mistake.
  • Guarantees Your Right to Appeal: You now have the right to ask that your plan reconsider its denial of payment.


  • Ends Lifetime Limits on Coverage: Lifetime limits on most benefits are banned for all new health insurance plans.
  • Reviews Premium Increases: Insurance companies must now publicly justify any unreasonable rate hikes.
  • Helps You Get the Most from Your Premium Dollars: Your premium dollars must be spent primarily on health care – not administrative costs.


  • Covers Preventive Care at No Cost to You: You may be eligible for recommended preventive health services. No copayment.
  • Protects Your Choice of Doctors: Choose the primary care doctor you want from your plan’s network.
  • Removes Insurance Company Barriers to Emergency Services: You can seek emergency care at a hospital outside of your health plan’s network.

FitBits, telehealth, remote data gathering—those wireless and mobile tech capabilities are all right here, right now. But what to do with all those data? It must start with a robust information technology architecture that can handle the new data influx that is coming and still deal with quality care, says John Derr, president of JD and Associates Enterprises.

Although wearable technology has been around for several years, it reached the general consumer level in 2014 and took off like a rocket. Today’s wearables can count heartbeats, measure blood pressure, check glucose levels and track locations. But the wearable frenzy boils down to the same problems healthcare has had with its data for decades: Just because we can capture data elements doesn’t mean they’re translatable to our health record systems, and just because we can translate the data into a “permanent” record system doesn’t always mean we have efficient ways to use or analyze them for better benchmarking or quality care.

All new healthcare technology goes through a “whistles and bells” period, then often settles into actual, valuable applications that can improve healthcare delivery in the mainstream. Although many providers hail the adoption of this type of technology as a huge milestone in patient engagement if nothing else, others are looking toward wearables as potential goldmines of data on residents as they live their daily lives, filling in the crucial gaps between physician visits.

1 Million People Apply On In First Week

Written by

From USA Today:

WASHINGTON — About 1 million out of the more than 3.7 million people who logged into during the first week of open enrollment submitted applications, the Department of Health and Human Services said Wednesday.

Nearly a half-million of those selected plans.

HHS Secretary Sylvia Mathews Burwell called the first week's statistics a "solid start" but noted the government has "a lot of work to do every day between now and Feb. 15," the end of the open enrollment period. A week after the agency came under fire for misstating enrollment figures by including those who signed up for dental plans, Burwell said, "Those numbers have been checked and do not include dental."

Almost half — 48% — of those who chose plans were uninsured, Burwell said. One of the administration's goals during the three-month open enrollment period is to reduce the number of people without insurance. Another goal is encouraging those with insurance to shop around for better deals.

"The fact that a substantial number of people were able to get on and pick a plan in the first week shows that the systems are working," said Larry Levitt, senior vice president at the Kaiser Family Foundation. "That's a big deal when you consider what a mess it all was last fall."
