sure has flown by this year as we can’t believe we’ve put together the final issue of Bend Lifestyle in 2018! It seems like just yesterday we were sitting down to write our January letter to all of you—talking about resolutions and renewal—and yet, here we are, almost time to do it again. There’s a unique perspective that working in publishing brings. While we certainly don’t want to wish our lives away, we’re always looking toward the future. Whether it’s planning our next issue or developing story ideas for the next year, we’re often already fast forwarded to future months before the current month has even begun. The fast-paced lifestyle this industry calls for can often make it difficult to really settle down and absorb what’s going on around us and, before we know it, the year is over and it’s time to move forward again. So this December, we hope you take the time to slow down a little bit. With the holiday season upon us, we hope you make the time to take it all in. Enjoy your time with family and friends, bask in the magic of the winter season, reflect on past memories you hold closely in your hearts and keep the new ones you create in the present for as long as you can. We’ll take your lead, and we can’t wait to see you next year! Visit us online at BendLifestylePubs.com and Facebook.com/Bend-Lifestyle, we welcome your feedback.

WINTER HOME AN A-FRAME RENOVATION CREATES A MOUNTAIN CHALET

ARTICLE AND PHOTOGRAPHY CHERYL PARTON

Bend Lifestyle | December 2018


BEFORE THE BOOM YEARS, BEND WAS A TRANSITIONING MILL TOWN WITH A SKI MOUNTAIN. And when there were few buildings west of Century Drive, there was First on the Hill, an eclectic neighborhood with a mix of log-, luxury- and family-styled places (plus an occasional geodesic dome) all with a close commute to Mt. Bachelor—the ultimate winter homes. For active residents Mike and Denise Gorman, First on the Hill was the perfect place to create their family residence. Seventeen years ago, the couple came down what was then a gravel road and saw a 1970 A-frame 1,300-square-foot house paired with a for sale sign and a sunset. It was inspiration for what is now their 3,760-square-foot mountain chalet. Mike, an architect for 33 years in Portland, Hood River and Bend, designed the home with Denise after they lived in the A-frame to consider the lot, its visiting wildlife, vegetation, light and views. “You can forecast, but until you experience a site, you can be surprised what (those things) are really like,” Mike says. To manifest their vision, they moved the house 80 feet north to maximize the plot and lifted it to create bedrooms underneath for their growing family. A new great room and kitchen were built above a garage which was a hub for ski wax parties and storage for four seasons of sports gear. The Gormans are skiers, bikers, wind- and kite-surfers as are their children, Sadie Ann, 19; Michaela, 17; and RJ, 16. Of their home and neighborhood, Mike says, “This spot is very ‘Bendish.’” Even as the city has grown up and around First on the Hill, residents can still ski or access mountain biking trails outside their front doors.  For the Gormans, creative endeavors continue nearby. Their next project is renovating the geodome down the street. “From an A-frame to a dome,” Denise adds, “Only in Bend.”

The Secret to Overall Health

Begins With Your Feet Many experts believe that feet are an indicator of overall health. A change in your feet - whether on the skin, nails or how your feet feel can be an indicator of other problems in the body. “Everything starts with the feet,” said Aaron Leonard, PT, DPT at Step & Spine Physical Therapy. “Because the feet are the body’s first point of contact with the ground, many health issues that people face can be prevented if the feet are healthy and functioning properly.”

the hips, which forces you to take small steps when walking. Tightness in the heels causes tight Achilles tendons and calf muscles, which lead to a reduced range of motion in the ankles, stiff hips and low back pain.

Improper Alignment

Understanding the prevalence of foot problems and the reason people have them is the first step toward improving your overall health.

Imagine your feet as the roots of a tree. They help stabilize your body during movement. If your body is not in proper alignment, decreased strength, stiffness, and eventually, pain can persist. If tightness causes your body to compensate for the inability to move in a normal path, physical therapy is critical.

Poor Circulation

Wearing the Wrong Shoes

Foot circulation is critical for overall health. While gravity helps blood get to the feet, good circulation gets the blood moving efficiently from the feet back up to the heart. Good toe movement helps the blood circulate appropriately through the body. Constrictive footwear, tight toe boxes or over supportive arches act as braces that hold feet in a stiff position, prohibiting circulation and proper movement.

Foot dysfunction often happens because of wearing inappropriate shoes. If you’re spending your days in high heels, your feet will pay the ultimate price. And stilettos aren’t the only shoes that wreak havoc on feet. Any heeled shoe or pointed toe bed (men’s included) can move the feet out of their natural position and cause toe pinching. Choose shoes that are flexible to allow mobility and flexibility and a toe bed that is rounded.

Stiff Toes, Heels, and Ankles

The Case for Orthotics or Not?

Toe, heel and ankle flexibility is essential for proper walking. “Issues in the feet and ankles can snowball into problems all the way up the body, from the knees to the hips to the back and neck,” said Aaron.

Your feet must continuously transform based on what they are doing. Feet are meant to be rigid when pushing off to take a step and flexible and cushioning in landing. Orthotics are braces for feet. If your foot is weak or stiff, an orthotic is often prescribed to facilitate correct movement. If bracing is necessary, investigate your orthotic options to ensure the unique needs of your feet are met. Even when you have orthotics, you can work to strengthen, mobilize and love your feet.

A stiff big toe decreases your ability to flex and push off correctly when walking, forcing the ankle to rotate out when taking a step. Stiffness in the ankles decreases the range of motion in

Champagne finds inspiration by exploring the Cascades. “This landscape, the lighting and colors—there’s nothing like it,” she says. That love is evident in her paintings: mostly large, abstract landscapes, each telling a story through the image.

holiday

Mw E M O R I E S hen memories fade THIS HOLIDAY SEASON WILL BE DIFFERENT FOR DON AND PHYLLIS RIGNEY. In January 2018 they made the difficult decision to find a residential memory care facility for Phyllis Rigney’s 85-year-old mother Ida. Regular phone sessions between mother and daughter had hidden the progression of Ida’s dementia, so it was only after Ida suffered a stroke that the evidence was impossible to overlook. “We don’t think to question them. They’re our parents,” says Phyllis Rigney. “We didn’t realize the dementia was so far along.” Her advice: “Try to be aware of the mental state of your aging parents before they have an accident.” The Rigneys found a new home for Ida at Mill View Memory Care in Bend, a community created for individuals with memory  loss,  Alzheimer's or  other  memory  impairments. Part of the thorough intake included a social and traditions history review which informs what familiar patterns are incorporated into a resident’s new daily and seasonal routine. According

to

the

Alzheimer’s

Association, dementia is a general term for a decline in mental ability severe enough to interfere with daily life and Alzheimer's is the most common type of dementia. Memory loss is one symptom and especially evident at the holidays is confusion with time or place. Those afflicted with memory loss issues might be effectively “living” in another era.

TRADITIONS CARRY FORWARD FROM DIFFERENT ERAS AND GENERATIONS ARTICLE DONNA BURKLO 24

Bend Lifestyle | December 2018


Nycol Evans, Mill View Memory Care’s resident care coordinator, recommends that the patient’s family members, “Maintain familiar routines or traditions during the time they [the patient] are living in.” That means if mom thinks it’s 1953, then just roll with it. Don’t try to argue or correct, it will just frustrate the patient and won’t make anything better for the family member. Angel Hunter, executive director at Mill View Memory Care agrees. “Go where they are,” she recommends, “At the holidays, decorate and follow traditions of the era the patient is most comfortable with.” For example, during circle exercise time in the Mill View community room, a song comes on and the activities attendant notes that Bing Crosby is singing “Ida’s song.” Part of the holiday plan for Ida will be a screening of Crosby’s 1954 movie, White Christmas.  Holiday activities for residents include the music, foods and photographs from multiple places and times.

PERFECT GIFTS FOR THOSE GADGET-OBSESSED FRIENDS AND FAMILY. The marketplace for new technology is vast and while come by, the frustration and challenges for most buyers is the notion that they can install them themselves and find out that it’s been done incorrectly. Wanless suggests hiring an expert for home automation products. “There’s a reason people come to companies like ours and that’s because they want things to work every time, and they want them to be secure and safe for their families,” he says.

W I N TER’S R EV EL YOUR GUIDE TO A SIMPLE AND STYLIZED NEW YEAR’S SOIRÉE

FOLLOWING CLOSELY ON THE COATTAILS OF AUTUMNAL AND WINTER HOLIDAYS, THE NEW YEAR CAN OFTEN BE OVERLOOKED DUE TO AN UNDERSTANDABLE DESIRE TO TAKE A BREAK FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF THE SEASON. But, a holiday that celebrates past memories and the opportunity for a fresh start shouldn’t lack any of the glitz of its celebratory predecessors. Round out the final days of the year reminiscing on or saying goodbye to the experiences of the previous 12 months with a simple end-of-theyear gathering that isn’t lacking any of the glamour.

THE DR INK S

Champagne has long been a traditional drink to toast to the new year. Keep it simple but step up your game with your own DIY Champagne cocktail

THE D ECOR There’s no need to go out and buy a ton of additional decor when you just decked the halls (quite literally) with holiday ornamentation. Make those decorations work as hard as you did by repurposing all the greenery, pine cones and wood place settings you just couldn’t say no to. Throw in some neutral napkins, some natural twine and some dried orange peels for a woodsy (and fragrant) twist.

bar. Consider stocking your bar full of custom Champagne or bubbly choices, festive mixers like cranberry juice or rosemary simple syrup and unique garnishes like fresh fruit and herbs or decorative ice cubes with edible flowers.

WHAT YOU NEED + Cheese board or serving plate + Assortment of cheeses

(We recommend Brie, Port Salut, Muenster, Camembert or Gruyere) PUTTING IT TOGETHER

T HE SNACKS

Keep your guests happy with the perfect cheese plate. Consider how many people you’ll be serving, whether you’ll be serving before or after dinner and what cheeses you’ll want to include. According to WineFolly.com, sparkling wines pair best with creamy, sticky cheeses due to the high acidity and carbonation.

34

Bend Lifestyle | December 2018

Cheese is best served at room temperature, so be sure your cheese has time to rest prior to serving. Slice the cheeses and arrange artfully on your cheese board with labels for each. Consider providing separate serving knives for each cheese to avoid any mixing of flavors. Add any additional bites you’d like and enjoy!
