Seniors often have special health needs that require more medication and more medical attention than other people. Modern medicine help us live longer, healthier lives, but with the benefits come some risks. You can reduce the rists by using medicine wisely. The following tips will help you do that. Take prescription drugs exactly as they are prescribed. That means taking the correct amount at the proper times in the way the doctor instructs and for as long as the prescription calls for. Make sure you understand how the drug should be taken - for example, with food or on an empty stomach. Tell your doctor right awy if you think a medicine is causing side effects. And whenever you get a new prescription, be sure the doctor and your pharmacists are aware of any medication problems you have had in the past. Get rid of drugs that have passed their expiration date by returning them to your pharmacy. Do not put them in the trash or flush them down the toilet. Never mix medicines together or mix them with alcohol unless you check first with your doctor or pharmacist to make sure the combination won’t cause problems.

Keep a record of all the medicine you take each day. Include prescription drugs, over the counter products, vitamins and mineral supplements and herbal remedies. Be sure to note any reactions you have. Keep a copy of your medication record in your medicine cabinet and carry a second copy with you. Ask your doctor to check your drug record every time you get a new prescription. Our pharmacists care about your health. We hope you find these tips helpful, and we are always happy to answer any questions. Give us a call, or better yet, drop by our pharmacy to say hello and see for yourself how we may be able to help.

Never take any drug prescribed for someone else or give your prescription medicine to another person. Many things affect the way a drug works in the body, and a drug may not be right for different people even if they have the same symptoms. #10 - 1380 SUMMIT DRIVE, KAMLOOPS, BC • PHONE: 250-851-3131 • FAX: 250-851-3133 • WEB: www.gloversmedicinecentre.ca

Showcasing Sport As many as 4,000 active agers — 55+ — to compete in Games

By Bronwen Scott Savvy

S

pectators, mark your calendars! Kamloops’ largest multi sporting event ever is coming Aug. 20 to 24. With 3,800 to 4,000 competitors, the Kamloops 2013 B.C. Senior Games is not only the city’s biggest so far, but also one of the largest games organized within B.C. It’s also the first time in many years that mountain biking and equestrian events will be part of the 25 sports and games for competitors 55 and over. “Kamloops is a mecca for mountain biking and horseback riding,” explained Kamloops 2013 senior Games president Charlie Bruce, a retired school principal and triathlete who’s been involved in many of Kamloops’ major sporting events in

With 1,600 to 1,800 volunteers needed, recruitment is ongoing, said Bruce, who explained that people can sign up online. “People can list their two main preferences, from a long list, including food services, medical, protocol, promotion, timers, results runners, spotters and many more. They’re all welcome and appreciated,” he said. “We really depend on funding and in-kind support,” explained Bruce. “We’re ideally looking for sponsors to underwrite things like volunteer T-shirts, security, concessions, the awards banquet and so on. The games are good for the community, and we’re expecting Kamloops will come together as it has in the past and put on a world-class event.” Bruce, who will compete in track and field in the upcoming games,

predicted that dragon boating will be a big spectator draw. “Last year, there were 460 dragon-boat competitors. The other big-draw events are ice hockey, soccer, curling and softball, and cycling is going to be quite the showcase sport this year as well.” But it’s not all about working up a sweat, he noted. There will be games of mental agility, too: some of the best whist, cribbage, darts and bridge players in the province will be competing for top honours. Along with archery, tennis, swimming, track and field, badminton,

golf, table tennis and lawn bowling, there will be some interesting twists on traditional sports, with competitions in floor curling, carpet bowling and pickleball, a tennis knock-off using a low net, a small, dense racquet and a whiffle ball. While the median age of competitors is 60 to 65, a few competitors this year are over 90. “This is a showcase of the amazing capacity of seniors in terms of personal health and well-being,” said Bruce, noting that admission to the Kamloops 2013 Senior Games is free.

Capturing Memories

Pass down family history in creative ways By Melissa Rayworth The Associated Press

D

ebbie Corrigan will turn 55 this year. A baby boomer with children and grandchildren, she loves researching her family history.

Last year, Corrigan, of Winchester, Va., wanted to create something out of her research — a tangible representation of her family tree that could hang on a living room wall. But nothing she found was quite right. So Corrigan used her computer to design her own modern family tree. Relatives liked it so much they asked her to design ones for them, and soon she began offering her services on the website Etsy.com as a researcher and designer of graphic family trees. Many of her customers are fellow baby boomers seeking to illustrate their personal histories in creative ways. Some make printed books and wall art to celebrate their past.

Many boomers, Lewis says, are creating impressive, coffee-table books of their own photos, accompanied by long paragraphs of text, or personal cookbooks detailing favourite family recipes and memories. Finding raw material is easier than ever: Along with writing out their personal thoughts, many boomers are using tools like Ancestry.com to gather copies of census forms, military records, and other data that can be used in books or works of art.

creating photo books. Choose one that offers customizable pages with plenty of room for text. Choose a focus for the book, perhaps zeroing in on images from a particular peri-

od of your life or one specific place you lived. Then write long captions related to these photos, sharing personal observations and details with future generations.

“Technology has absolutely been a gamechanger for family history. It has made global records available from the comfort of your home,’’ says Ancestry.com’s family historian Michelle Ercanbrack. With all this data and a lifetime of experiences to share, the creative options are unlimited. There are relatively easy and inexpensive projects that make great vehicles for preserving history and knowledge, and also could be memorable gifts for relatives and friends.

The website Blurb.com has become a popular destination for creating personal books that preserve thoughts and memories.

“There’s something really powerful about the printed book’’ to baby boomers, says Brenna Lewis, head of marketing and products at Blurb. Young enough to use web-based tools enthusiastically, they’re also old enough to appreciate the value of a tangible, hard copy.

Hoch spent a dozen years at IBM, where she became a senior engineer and earned two patents, then moved into a computer software job, from which she was laid off in the early 1990s. She took jewelry and metals classes at a Denver-area community college and got hooked. She relies on her mechanical engineering training when fusing metals or cutting stones. “It’s a lot of fairly sophisticated measurements,’’ Hoch says. “There are so many technical things; engineering is a very useful skill to have.’’ While she describes her years in high-tech as fun — “like working with puzzles’’ — jewelry-making taps into her creative energy.

UCSF’s Glogau noted that today’s sunscreens are superior to those used two decades ago when the study started — meaning people who regularly use it now might see more benefit. “It’s never too late,” he said’. “Over time you’ll see an improvement.”

“These are meaningful cosmetic benefits,’’ said lead scientist Dr. Adele Green of the Queensland Institute of Medical Research. More importantly, she added, less sun-caused aging decreases the risk of skin cancer in the long term.

The Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Australia, compared fine lines on the hands of hundreds of people who, for more than four years, had been assigned to rub on sunscreen daily or only when they deemed it necessary.

hen the three “F”s — falls, forgetfulness and failing senses such as sight, smell and balance — make life harder or riskier at home, B.C. Housing can help seniors and those with disabilities to stay home safely. Grants or forgivable loans of up to $20,000 are available to help low-income seniors to modify their homes to improve access and promote safe and independent living. The Home Adaptations for Independence program is open to homeowners and renters whose assets are less than $100,000, and whose home’s assessed value is lower than that of surrounding homes, or whose rent is below average for the area. Landlords of affordable rental properties may also apply on

behalf of eligible tenants, and, in the case of eligible apartment units, funding may also be available to adapt common areas. Adaptations must be directly applicable to the householder’s disability or diminished abilities, and must be permanent and fixed to the home, though some exceptions have been made for equipment, such as bath lifts, designed to give access to existing facilities. Even small changes can make a big difference in the lives of people who wish to remain in their homes longer. These can include additions for access, such as ramps, handrails in hallways or on stairs, safer floor coverings, entrance shelters, widened parking spaces, transfer aids like trapezes, and lighting modifications.

Grants, loans available for home modifications Kitchens can be made easier to work in with wheelchair-accessible work and storage areas, lever handles on doors, or the auxiliary shut-off switches (secondary controls) for kitchen appliances, while the bathroom — that slippery site of many accidents — can be made safer with grab bars for showers or tubs, wheel-in showers, bath-tub seats, or lower counters. Alterations to bedrooms and laundry rooms to increase safety and accessibility also qualify for funding assistance. For more information on this B.C.

Peace and Quiet By Kim Cook The Associated Press

omeowner Christine Igot knows one thing for sure. “I will not have a fridge in my kitchen ever again,’’ she says firmly. In the new house she’s building, in Annapolis Royal, N.S., the 51-year-old is putting the refrigerator in a pantry off the kitchen and will double insulate the walls. Why? All that noise, noise, noise. Roxanne Went uses her car as “a cone of silence’’ to escape the noise of leaf blowers outside her West Chester, Pa., home, and of family members’ blaring music inside. For baby boomers, noise matters. “Decreased tolerance for loud sounds is a fairly common symptom of age-related hearing loss, as the range of comfortable listening levels seems to shrink,’’ says Ted Madison, an audiologist in St. Paul, Minn. Beyond creating stress and annoyance, loud

noises can cause hearing loss, according to experts. The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health reckons that noise over 85 decibels may cause hearing loss. So what are the loud products we live with at home? According to the American SpeechLanguage-Hearing Association, based in Rockville, Md., the “very loud’’ range includes blenders, blow dryers, vacuum cleaners and alarm clocks, all in the 80 to 90 decibel range. “Extremely loud’’ — in the 100 to 110 decibel range — are snow blowers, gas lawnmowers and some MP3 players.

At left, the WhisperLight hair dryer by Bio Ionic was one of the first global products to receive the Quiet Mark designation. At right, the TrueSteam dishwasher by LG Electronics, which runs quieter than many on the market.

In Brighton, England, a Noise Abatement Society fields complaints from citizens about annoyances ranging from neighbours’ power tools to barking dogs to wind chimes. Managing director Poppy Elliot says her team decided to channel the collective angst over unwanted noise into Quiet Mark, a seal of approval they give to products designed to be quieter. So far more than 35 products have received the designation, from hair dryers to commercial tools, and Eliot said the organization is expanding globally. “The ultimate aim is to encourage industry across the board to put a high priority on factoring in low noise at the design stage. Investment in acoustic design and sound quality of a product should be just as important as energy efficiency or visual design,’’ she said.

“I’m wide awake, I enjoy life,” she says, reminiscing about marrying in England in 1942, then not seeing her husband, an Air Force engineer, for five years after that; about starting life over in Canada 40 years later, then again when they moved to Berwick on the Park six years ago. “We still dance together,” she says. “My husband is

They can choose to get involved in any of a number of activities offered every day at the 120-suite retirement community beside Peterson Creek Park. Even just those that start with “B” on May’s events calendar make an impressive list, with bingo, billiards, barbecues, bridge and wii bowling. But these ladies aren’t really here for the activities—they’re all fit, feisty and able to find their own fun in the community if they want. It’s the community feel of the place—elegant on the outside, warm and cozy on the inside. “It’s very pleasant to live here,” said McKenna. “It’s friendly, and it makes you feel good. It keeps you active, mind and body. And that’s what keeps you healthy.” That’s the aim of Berwick’s 85 staff, explains general manager Bev Graham. “It’s all about a sense of community and opportunities to socialize. Our big focus is on how our activities, amenities and services fulfill the residents.” From the buzz of conversation issuing from the cafe and the ring of laughter in the lobby, it sounds like they’ve succeeded.

Ready to Ride? Tips on buying a bike that fits

By Lauren La Rose The Canadian Press

P

ain induced by cycling can be a roadblock for many in hopping on a bike, and Andrew McGregor wants to alleviate the problem — one he once lived with himself.

Having raced when he was younger, McGregor said he quit because it hurt too much, describing the pain in his lower back and neck as “unbearable.’’ Now, a certified master-fit instructor with Specialized Canada, McGregor helps others using a fit philosophy that tailors the ride to the individual’s needs and helps ensure they’re in a neutral position on the bike.

Back and neck pain can be addressed by the handlebar position, he said. “If handlebars are too low, too high, too long or if the bike isn’t the right size, you’re going to go outside your natural range of motion. Whenever you do that, you’re going to start causing pain,’’ he said. Here are a few more tips when selecting a bicycle. p Let your ride mirror your life. If you’re going to ride in the forest, you don’t want a race road bike. If you’re going to be riding to get bread at the grocery store, mountain tires aren’t necessary.

p Be mindful of legal requirements. If riding within the city at night, riders should know whether they need lights. p The right clothing is key to comfort, including padded shorts and gloves. p Your helmet should fit snugly enough so that when the chinstrap is in place, there is the equivalent of one or two fingers space between it and the bottom of the chin.

p Size matters. The most important thing for size is standover height. You want to make sure you’re comfortable if you have to put a foot down, that you’ve got that right amount of clearance.

McGregor said saddle pain is among the leading causes of discomfort due to the seat being too narrow or not set at the correct height.

p As for grip, it’s important that riders are within their range of motion, which means eliminating the need to reach or overextend. Make sure you can reach your pedals without feeling like you have to rock your hips to get down to the pedals.

“From there, knee pain is a big problem caused by instability in the foot (and) also can be caused by saddle choice or saddle width. You can ride longer if it doesn’t hurt.”

p Consider buying a gender-specific model. Not all women may need or want a genderspecific bicycle, but there can be benefits to models tailored to female riders.

e take medicine to feel better, but when the wrong medicines mix, watch out! Combining prescription drugs with over-the-counter or even some natural medications can create unexpected results, which is why Rexall Pharmacy offers a free Medication Review, created specifically for people taking five or more medications daily.

AFTER

“Even some natural health products can interact dangerously with other medications and pharmaceutical products,” said Jennifer Cambidge, a pharmacist at Rexall Pharmacy in Kamloops. “I sit down one-on-one with my clients to review and discuss their medications. We identify and resolve issues to make sure each person gets the most benefit. The right prescriptions, taken the right way, can vastly improve someone’s quality of life,” she said.

BEFORE

Another way to reduce the chance of a bad reaction is to fill all prescriptions at one pharmacy. Your pharmacist can tap into a computer, see what you take, and let you know right then and there if the off-theshelf cold medicine you just picked up will do more harm than good.

is always best to check with the pharmacist which over-the-counter products will be safe and effective for you to use,” said Cambidge, pointing out that it’s important to read labels and follow dosage guidelines when dealing with many antihistamines and sleep aids. “These products last a long time in the body, and can increase risk of confusion and falls, as well as urinary retention in men,” she says. Alcohol is another risk factor. “It is always best to ask the pharmacist if it is ok to have an alcoholic beverage while taking your medications,” said Cambidge. Keeping to a multi-pill regimen daily can be tough to remember, so she recommends using a pill reminder system or chart to avoid an accidental overdose or a gap in your regimen, and to enroll in a program like Rexall’s free Reminder Ready, which automatically refills a prescription when it’s due, and sends an automated reminder for pick-up. Checking expiry dates is also a must, and when out-of-date medications have been cleaned out of the medicine cabinet, it’s important to dispose of them safely, preferably at a pharmacy, she noted. “Your pharmacist is here to help,” said Cambidge. “The best rule of thumb if you are wondering about any medication is ‘When in doubt, check it out.’”

Active Living for Active Agers being able to reach, bend, lift, carry and move around easily, older adults can remain independent.”

“I

t’s not work if you love it,” says YMCA-YWCA instructor, Lesly Holness, 69, as she charges up the stairs after leading an exhausting hour of zumba to teach for another hour. Her Posture, Balance and Strength class, also a major workout, has 18 students, all over 50. One, Helen Bonnett, turning 80 this month, steps and pulls to the frenetic sounds of Wild Thing and Thriller. She’s not even breathing hard as she continues her routine and answers questions at the same time. “Staying active is essential,” she says. “I’ve been walking since I was 45, and I don’t feel my age at all. I don’t have the aches and pains.” The Y’s health and fitness manager, Charlene Friend, explains the science behind Bonnett’s personal experience. “Active living helps manage the aging process, improve quality of life, and instill a sense of well-being. By choosing activities that promote independent living, such as

It’s important to “use it or lose it,” since by the age of 65, 10 to 20 per cent of total bone mass is lost, and muscle mass decreases at a rate of 12 to 14 per cent per decade after the age of 50. There’s good news, though. “No matter what your age or ability, you can get stronger,” says Friend. “Aerobic exercise helps maintain your lung capacity and blood flow, and helps to prevent daily tasks like housework and gardening from tiring you out.” The Kamloops Y offers 34 programs designed especially for active agers, including line dancing, aqua-fit, 60+ circuit weight training, core conditioning, dancercise, zumba gold, yoga, posture, balance and strength and others.

No matter what kind of exercise you choose to do, aim for 30 minutes of exercise a day, and make a habit of it, says Friend. “It’s never too late. The first step is to say ‘yes.’ ” Use it or lose it. By the age of 65, 10 to 20 per cent of total bone mass is lost, and muscle mass decreases at a rate of 12 to 14 per cent per decade after the age of 50. But remember, it’s never too late to start!

Secret! Best Kept

“Exercise programs can give older adults the opportunity to stay physically active, and improve muscle strength, agility, dynamic balance and joint mobility,” says Friend. For those who aren’t sure where to start, there’s the Better Bones Chair Aerobics class. Breath and Wellness helps to develop breathing techniques, positive thinking and relaxation, while Stretch for Health, a gentle stretching routine helps to improve flexibility, balance, coordination and body awareness.

People with balance difficulties can choose classes like Fitness in a Chair.

That’s a positive sign for the River City Seniors Society, now building Mayfair just across the road, with 20 studio units subsidized by River City Seniors Society, a guest suite and an 81-unit, petfriendly collection of resident-owned suites, subsidized, dependent on income, by B.C.

Gerry Todd holds up the rhubarb that she grew while living at the Riverbend Seniors Community in Brocklehurst.

Resident Verna Cavers, who lives in one of RiverBend’s with 99 one- and two-bedroom rental suites, agreed. “I have a garden here. I get out in the earth, and it restores my soul,” said the 93-year-old who, though legally blind, still follows her own routine and makes the majority of her meals in her suite, taking advantage of RiverBend’s variety of dining packages every once in awhile. “I like my independence,” said Cavers, “but it’s nice to have a partner for cards close by, too.”

Riverbend resident Nancy Anderson waters the raised vegetable planters she and her neighbours have planted.
