‘Something is better

H E A LT H

Fitness tips for older adults from Age Well founder Katrina Wolf BY ANGELA ROBERTS AROBERTS@NEWSPOST.COM

A

s a former physical therapy assistant, Katrina Wolf knows just how important it is for people to keep moving as they get older. Adults start losing muscle mass in their 30s, she said. Their bones become more brittle and susceptible to fracture. Their heart and blood vessels become more rigid, decreasing the amount of blood flow to their brain. “That’s all very depressing,” she said during a presentation at the C. Burr Artz Public Library in Frederick recently. “What can we do to improve all of those things that I just listed? There is one thing that we can do, and it’s exercise.” Fitness helps people build muscle and improve their balance and vascular health, Wolf said. It’s especially important for people older than 55 to exercise, she added, because loss of strength is one of the most common reasons for why people need to get assistance in their homes. Want to be more active but aren’t sure where to start? Here are some tips from Wolf, founder of Age Well Senior Fitness, a company that offers in-home and virtual personal-training services to clients 55 and up, as well as those with health problems. Older adults should speak with their doctors before starting any exercise program, she said.

Medicine recommends that people older than 65 get 150 minutes of moderate activity every week. That’s about 30 minutes of exercise five days per week, including two days of resistance training. But fitness rookies shouldn’t let that guidance intimidate them. Start at a level of fitness where they’re comfortable. If that’s 10 minutes of exercise per day, instead of 30, that’s better than zero. “Something is better than nothing,” Wolf said.

TIP #2 Don’t forget about strength training Wolf often sees older adults walking with their friends when she drives through retirement communities. While walking is wonderful exercise, she said, it’s not enough. Strength training helps older adults remain independent in their homes. Aim to complete eight to 12 repetitions of each type of exercise in two to three sets. The weights should be heavy enough that the last several repetitions are difficult to complete. It’s important that this exercise is progressive, meaning it gets more difficult over time. Older adults can increase the weight they use or increase the number of repetitions, exercises in rotation, or speed.

TIP #3 Balance is critical

Balance training is a “must,” especially for adults over 65. Falls are one of the leading causes of hospitalizations among this population. Older adults who fall and break a bone are likely to experience a significant deTIP #1 Start where you are cline in function.

TIP #5 Remember to stretch People lose flexibility as they age. It’s common for older adults, especially those who sit a lot, to experience tightening in their chest and hip flexors. It’s important not to stretch a muscle when it’s cold. When working with

clients, Wolf often has them work on flexibility at the end of an exercise routine. Older adults should be able to hold a stretch for at least 20 seconds. She usually has her clients do three sets of stretches that last for 20 seconds each. Breathing is also important

when working on flexibility.

FINANCES

You deserve a break Older couples who sell their homes can benefit from tax savings

C

BY ELDER SERVICES PROVIDER COUNCIL

onsider Irene, who recently became a widow when her husband, Henry, died. Like most married couples, they held the title to their home in joint ownership with the right of survivorship. In plainer language, this means that co-owner Henry’s death results in his loss of all ownership in their dwelling. Surviving co-owner Irene automatically acquires all ownership in it. Irene is uncertain what to do with her highly appreciated home. One option is to quickly sell it and move to where her daughter lives. But Irene should go slowly when it comes to major decisions such as home sales. Other options are to wait several years to sell or just stay put, in which case the residence would eventually wind up with her heirs. Irene wants to know the tax consequences of selling or staying. First, she needs to understand the tax breaks for individuals who sell their principal residences.

Exclusions The law authorizes “exclusions” that allow home sellers to sidestep income taxes on most of their profits when they unload their principal residences. The profit exclusions are as much as $500,000 for couples filing joint returns and as much as $250,000 for single persons. Sellers are liable for taxes on gains greater than $500,000 or $250,000. If Irene decides to sell: Can she exclude $500,000 or $250,000? The answer depends on the sale date and whether she remarries. Though she’s no longer mar6 | OCTOBER 2022

ried, recently widowed Irene still qualifies for the higher amount — as long as she sells within two years of Henry’s death. It’s the lower amount if she sells after the two-year deadline. If Irene remarries: If her new husband, Steve, then lives in the place as his principal residence for at least two years out of the five-year period that precedes the sale date, the profit exclusion will once again be $500,000 (with caveats).

Tax rates for long-term capital gains For most sales, the tax rate usually is 15%, increasing to 20% for lots of high-income sellers. It goes as high as 23.8% for those who are in the top income tax bracket of 37% and subject to the Medicare surtax of as much as 3.8%

‘She sets the pace, and we follow her’ Connecticut woman competes in a 5K road race at age 100 BY LORI RILEY TRIBUNE NEWS SERVICE

THE FREDERICK NEWS-POST

t age 99, Marion “Mic” Roberts completed her first road race. That was last September, at the Haddam Neck Fair 5K. She finished the 3.1-mile race in 56 minutes. Sunday morning, she was back on the starting line, a week after celebrating her 100th birthday on Aug. 28. She finished the 5K — walking with her son Chuck Roberts and daughterin-law Donna Roberts, listening to a little Frank Sinatra — in 1 hour, 31 seconds. “She’s 40 years older than I am and she doesn’t slow down,” Donna said. “She sets the pace, and we follow her.” Roberts, of Haddam, won her age group — 80-plus — and was presented a medal by the race organizers while the other runners cheered. After the awards ceremony, several runners asked to have their picture taken with her. “I thought it sounded like fun,” said Roberts, who grew up in East Hampton and remembered going to the fair (which started in 1909) as a child with her grandparents. “I just thought I’d do it and come at the tail end and go home. I didn’t expect all this.”

Roberts is a walker; she walks over 2 miles a day. She also plays bocce and occasionally stays up until 11 p.m. playing bridge at her senior living facility. Her grandchildren, Chuck’s kids, were runners at East Hampton High School and they all ran the Haddam Neck Fair race several times, and Roberts would always come and watch. Last year, Chuck asked her, on a whim, if she wanted to do the race herself. “She goes, ‘OK, I’ll try it,’” Chuck said. “So here we are, the second year. “We might retire after this year. Well, maybe I will.” He laughed. Roberts was always active. She taught dance lessons when she was younger. She skied. She golfed until a shoulder injury at age 80 forced her to stop. But she kept walking. Her husband Cullen (whom she met while teaching dance) died in 1999. Two of her three sons passed away. “She takes one pill a day,” Donna said. “She’s completely healthy. It’s her attitude. She’s overcome a lot of obstacles and kept going.” She broke her pelvis two years ago, then contracted COVID-19. She got through that. Kept going. Sunday, she wore a blouse and

slacks for the race. The year before at the race, Donna said, she wore pearls with her outfit. Just as the race started, the sun came out and it was hot and fairly humid. There was a short steep hill at the start of Mile 3. They had to stop a few times on the hill. Roberts called it “a beaut.” But as the clock clicked just over an hour, there was Roberts, not a hair out of place, walking purposefully through the finish line chute. People cheered and took pictures. “We were five minutes slower than last year, but I think all of us slowed down,” Chuck said. “She did great.” As they were leaving the race last year, Roberts was stopped multiple times and asked, “What’s your secret?” “These were people in their 50s and 60s, saying, ‘I want to be able to do this 30 years from now,’” Chuck said. Roberts said there is no secret. “I just live day to day” she said. “And if someone says, ‘Let’s do something,’ I say, ‘Sure.’”

Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
