editor’s letter

JANUARY 2020 / CRISTIN MARANDINO

ot too long ago I got a sore throat, so I headed to the doctor. Given my expert-level ability to go right to the worst case scenario, I had myself convinced it was some rare esophageal disease. “Or,” my doctor said after I shared my diagnosis, “it’s postnasal drip.” (She was right.) Then there was the time that Google diagnosed me with eyelid cancer due to itchy lids. When I shared my fate with our production director, she just looked at me and said, “Get out of my office.” (It was allergies.) I know I’m not alone in my tendency to overreact or rely on the good old Internet for medical advice. That’s why in this issue we turn to real life doctors to answer common, pressing and personal health questions (“Straight Talk,” page 73). And in case you’re in the market for a new doctor or are searching for a specialist, we also present this year’s list of Castle Connolly’s Top Doctors in Fairfield County (page 49). Because, while the Internet

is a wonderful thing, it doesn’t have a medical degree. It can also scare you to death. (Oh, the irony.) Speaking of the Internet, if one of your New Year’s resolutions is to disconnect a little more from the digital world, we’ve got you covered. Travel writer Kim-Marie Evans takes us to some of the most spectacular places on the planet that offer varying degrees of digital detox. In “Far & Away” (page 82) we break down options for everyone from those who have a full-blown panic attack if the phone is more than five feet away to those who are wholly comfortable with being blissfully unaware. I tend to fall into the former category, yet a visit to Sheldon Chalet has earned a top spot on my bucket list. Trust me, one look at this place and you’ll say, iWhat? Now, does anyone have thoughts on why my elbow hurts?

JANUARY 2020 / DONNA MOFFLY

OF THINGS MOTHER USED TO SAY

R

emember those things your parents, grandparents or bosom buddy used to say that have helped you navigate through life? Maybe you’ve passed them down to your children and they to theirs. Some were secret signals, of course, that nobody but your family understood; but we’ll get to those later. Meanwhile, the start of a new year seems like a good time to reflect on a few.

ON DISAPPOINTMENT

ON MEANNESS

“Don’t cry over anything that can’t cry over you.”

“He’s less than the dust beneath your chariot wheels.”

Sue Bodson’s grandmother Rose used to say: “In the end it will be OK; and if it’s not OK, it’s not the end.” Sue reminds her boys about that all the time. Her Grammy also believed that “Time heals all wounds and wounds all heels.” Amen to that.

ON LEARNING “You can learn something from any damned fool!” That was my grandmother’s favorite line; and though we’d laugh when she said it, you know she was right! “The answer is no. Now what’s the question?” Harry Keleshian would tell his daughter. “I hated that response at the time,” says Alyssa Bonomo, “but now I’m finally realizing how genius that philosophy is.” Another Harry-ism was: “Never negotiate with yourself.” Good food for thought. greenwichmag.com

14

My mother soothed us with these words many a time when we’d come home from school bent out of shape because we’d been bullied by a classmate or jilted by a first love.

ON HOW TO DRESS “Every flower has a green leaf,” Mother would point out. After all, in what else would you dress a little red-headed girl? Now, all grown-up and debating what to wear to yet another benefit, I often head for the emerald or jade jacket. Mother also instructed us: “Always dress well when you travel, because you might meet your destiny.” (Actually I met my destiny—Jack Moffly—at a party in somebody’s basement.) But in Cleveland Hopkins Airport last summer the woman at the check-in desk, a security screener and an agent at the gate all told me how nice I looked. What? No torn jeans, sweatshirt or sneakers?

VENTURE PHOTOGRAPHY, GREENWICH, CT

Cristin Marandino’s mother had a way of stopping the tears with that one.

founder’s letter Bobbi Eggers’s mother suggested she only pack her most beautiful bra and underwear in case she ended up in the hospital.

ON FACING CHALLENGES

“Well, you’ll never have to hear that for the first time again. Now you can move on.” Lisa Lori was devastated after receiving some difficult news from a surgeon about her eldest son’s condition. Later that day she spoke to her best friend from college who said: “When I hear about something challenging, the first time is always the hardest. Then I get on with it.”

ON JUSTICE

“What’s meant to be yours won’t be taken away.” Mother always saw the glass as half full. Not a bad way to live. “Two wrongs don’t make a right” and “Don’t get mad; get even.” These contradictory directives came from my mother, and both have proved useful depending on the situation.

ON CHILDREN

“They’re a poorly lot, but they’re mine!” Mother had a certain pride of ownership. This was quoted in the Cleveland Plain Dealer when she was interviewed for a story. Asked if she collected anything, she said, “Yes. Children.” The honest truth. All of our young friends used to hang out in our apartment, more because of Mother, I think, than my brothers and me. The newspaper photographed her in front of a giant portrait of us three Clegg kids. It now hangs in my living room.

ON MANNERS

“He’s got a face only a mother can love, and she does it out of a sense of duty!” Mother truly believed that not all babies were physically beautiful. But, of course, some do turn into swans, and besides, it’s what’s inside that counts.

“Oars in the boat!” Mother meant for us, for example, to remove the spoon from the sherbet cup when we were finished and rest it on the plate. Then there was “Myrtle!”— the name of a Southern friend who she thought had terrible table manners. It became one of our secret signals—reminding us kids to take our elbows off the table or stop clanking the utensils so noisily on our plates. When poor Mrs. Payton actually came to dinner one night, Mother was scared to death one of us would blurt out “Myrtle!” But we didn’t.

ON HAPPINESS

“Make sure you are happy. Don’t change your life for the kids.” An elderly English friend of Bobbi Eggers told her that if you’re happy, your kids will be happy, too. If you love to travel, throw them in a backpack and go for it. If it means staying in New York or still working, do what is best for you. “Because I promise,” she said, “if you are unhappy, your kids will be, too.”

ON KINDNESS

“Corinthians, Corinthians!” my mother would quietly admonish us when we said something derogatory about someone. She was referring to the Bible verse starting “Love is patient, love is kind. . . .” Another secret directive that made us shape up.

ON SUCCESS

“Give the world the best you have, and the best will come back to you.” These encouraging words for Sue Bodson came from Father.

ON HELPFULNESS

ON PROPRIETY

“Never leave a room empty-handed.”

“Makowski!” This was the best secret signal of all. It came from my father. When I was growing up, there was an annual Labor Day picnic at his company, a command performance for our family. The head of the union, a Polish gentleman named Makowski, had eight or nine little boys, and inevitably one of them hadn’t zipped up his fly properly. So for the men in our family, the whispered alert became “Makowski.” Uh oh, now it’s not a secret anymore.

Another from my mother, and it’s sure come in handy training the kids to bring that hors d’oeuvres tray from the living room into the kitchen and to clear the table after dinner.

ON ENTERTAINING

“I love you all, but it’s time for you to go home!” My mother always had a second sense of when the dinner party was winding down. Her guests would laugh, sigh with relief and head for bed. They loved it!

Have a happy, healthy New Year.

Cindy, who founded the Go Figure chain, is delivering on these resolutions and more in a luxe atmosphere. A classically trained dancer and fitness pro for decades, Cindy honed her skills by training with Lotte Berk, a dancer credited with developing the barre method. After selling her Go Figure

business and moving to Florida when she and her husband became empty nesters, she decided to return to Greenwich to be close to her grandkids and start this new fitness endeavor. Her challenging-yet-effective workouts follow the original barre method, says Cindy, taking cues from classical ballet, yoga and Pilates. The new spa-like studio, designed by Cindy Rinfret, feels soothing and warm with a comfortable changing room stocked with beauty treats from Acqua di Parma. But JANUARY 2020 GREENWICH

don’t be fooled by the plush surroundings: This workout is no walk in the park. Cindy or one of her personally trained instructors will take you through an hour of exercises and stretches, many at the barre, some on the floor and incorporating small weights. Muscles are worked to the point of fatigue—some you never knew you had—and then stretched out. The result for dedicated clients? “An ageless body,” says Cindy, “not just in appearance but » in the way you feel.”


buzz WHAT TO EXPECT 1 1

All ages are represented in classes, and the workout also appeals to those looking to improve their tennis or golf games.

2 Music is played throughout each hour-long class, ranging from pop to R&B to classical. “We stretch to soothing, spa-like music,” says Cindy. “For intense thigh work, we need a great beat to get us through.”

3 Improved posture is key. “We have to do something to correct all of the slouching from using laptops and electronic devices and driving,” she says. “If you take a class and only improve your posture, you’ve made progress.” Each class ends with clients lining up to hang on the Stall Bar, a wooden ladder-like device that helps relieve tension in the neck, shoulders and spine.

4 The studio is open seven days a week. You can take single classes or opt for the new client special, $125 a month for unlimited classes. Ten- and twenty-class packages are also available.

Three sessions per week are recommended for optimum results. “Some first-timers come four to five times, because they’re so excited about the changes they’re seeing,” says Cindy. 109 Greenwich Avenue, 203-900-1400; greenwichbarrestudio.com

FRIENDLY BEAST GMC’S SIERRA DENALI WORKS LIKE A CHARM

step kicks out to ease entry Another nifty bit of ingenuity was the tailgate, which can be arranged to a variety of tasks, such as step ladder, back stop, work bench and I think soda fountain. The excellent rear-view camera was never more useful. Sometimes I felt I was backing up a freight train. For all that, the truck’s usefulness created real charm. GMC is one step higher up the luxury ladder from its corporate cousin, the Chevy Silverado. While it has all the latest tech conveniences, and was very well appointed, it did not have the

Perhaps when trucks go fullelectric in a few years, folks here might lean that way. Once behind the wheel the first thing to be noticed is the sheer quality of the ride. I had wondered if the brute would go its way with a lot of huffing and snorting. But it actually had a lot of polish. With its Adaptive Ride Control, it’s an effortless cruiser and perfectly acceptable choice for a long trip. That is, unless fuel economy was your No. 1 priority. A four-wheeldrive Crew Cab will have a thirst to match its heft. Getting inside was no issue—a

lot of things can be done in a hulking pickup like the GMC Sierra Denali 1500. Like, for example, haul or tow an astounding amount of tonnage. But maybe the best thing it delivers is the satisfaction of arriving in style. On the road or in the driveway you are as noticeable as a pirate’s galleon cresting the high seas. The four-door pickup may not have replaced the SUV in Fairfield County. But in cool towns like Austin, Texas, these big honkers are the ride of choice for ferrying dogs, kids, teams, whatever.

2020 VISION RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH THESE ORGANIZATIONAL STRATEGIES

1

PICK A SM ALL AREA FIRST “Don’t take everything out of every cabinet,” Fillip cautions. “Start small, with a hall closet or junk drawer.”

2

PULL EVERY THING OU T OF THE SPACE “Starting with a clean slate is always best,” says Jamie. So for example, if you’re cleaning out the bedroom closets, take everything out and choose a large enough area where you can sort everything.

3

SORT: PUT LIKES WITH LIKES “When we work with a client, they are often amazed that they own twenty black T-shirts or way too many coats,” says Fillip. “It makes a statement when they see all those T-shirts together in one place and makes the next step easier.”

4

can’t do this step yourself. You can’t put things back into your closet or drawers until you know what you are keeping.”

EDIT AND MAKE THREE PILES: KEEP, TOSS, DONATE “This is the biggest step in the process, and the hardest for our clients,” says Jamie. “You have to ask yourself the right questions to make the hard decisions. This is when a professional can really help. Or bring in someone you trust to hold you accountable if you

CATEGORIZE AND RE-SORT ITEMS Think of it this way: The sneakers that you wear daily versus the shoes you wear once a year. greenwichmag.com

6

LABEL EVERYTHING! Even if you think the spot might be temporary, label it to make sure your organizing stays organized. You want to be sure the housekeeper, nanny, husband, kids— everyone— know where everything goes. “It’s really hard to put the salt back where it says pepper,” Fillip says.

amie and Fillip Hord started dating when she was an eighthgrade neatnik and he, a freshman entrepreneur. In 2015 this dynamic twentysomething couple merged their strengths and founded HORDERLY, a company that’s been streamlining closets and drawers and managing move-ins across America ever since. (Considering their last name, they seemed destined for this business.) They have recently branched out into our area. “Organizing brings a mental clarity—knowing where to find everything and knowing exactly where to put things back,” says Fillip. “Our clients tell us they feel a hundred times lighter after we’re done. It’s like a cleanse for your home.” If organizing your home or office is on your New Year’s resolution list, you have a choice: Contact Horderly or do it yourself. For those choosing the latter, Jamie and Fillip let us in on their eleven-step process to transform any space in need of a little TLC.

STRATEGIZE PLACEMENT “It’s important to put things back in the most functional way, based on how much you use each item,” says Fillip. “It’s also important to assess how much prime real estate your space offers for the items you use a lot.”

8

STRATEGIZE PRODUCTS “You must think of functionality first and go through the six previous steps before shopping,” Jamie says. “Simply buying a bunch of pretty bins is throwing money awway without finding a solution that works in your space. It needs to be the right product for your space.”

CALL IN THE PROS

Horderly usually spend a few days on a whole-house organization, which runs about $3,000, not including products. For more information, check out horderly .com or email hello@ horderlycom.

IMPLEMENT PRODUCTS “Put the products in your space and use them,” Fillip says. “Organizational products prevent you from backsliding and helps you maintain a neat, organized space.”

“Just because coats have always lived in one closet doesn’t mean they have to stay there. They might make more sense in another closet,” says Jamie. “There’s a lot of playing around during this step. Nothing should be permanent until you go through the entire process.”

after

11 TIDY “Don’t let things linger,” adds Jamie. Make a trip to the donation center, toss the trash and take the dry cleaning to the cleaners. If you fail to do this step, these items become clutter. greenwichmag.com

TAUK kitchen + bar

Lobster Roll with hand cut Steak Frites

New American Cuisine Recharged + Redefined

Every town needs a go-to gathering spot — a local place for drinks and dinner after a movie or show; outdoor lunch on a beautiful afternoon; or Sunday brunch or dinner. In the heart of Armonk Square, TAUK kitchen + bar has filled the bill quite nicely for the past two years. However, owner Francis Leone didn’t want to rest on his laurels. Recently, the Westchester restaurant took two weeks to re-invigorate the space with a revamped New American menu, updated décor and complete staff retraining. The result: a heightened level of customer service excellence, centering around an elevated menu of New American cuisine and a spirited new cocktail program. “We knew we had a few all-star menu options, like our popular Tuna Poke Bowl, Cod Fish n Chips and our Montauk Lobster Roll with Hand-Cut Truffle Fries, so we kept those,” said Leone. “But, with the talented executive Chef Michael Torres behind the scenes, we wanted to up our game, so we tasked him will rolling out a new menu, and our customers tell us it’s a winner.” The seasonal selections are ingredientfocused, relying on the best of what’s in season at local farms, fisheries and farmers’ markets. For the colder months, the menu spotlights an

impressive selection of comfort fare, incorporating locally sourced meats from Fossil Farms, including the short rib and fresh rigatoni, short rib with purple heirloom mashed potatoes, massive ribeye steak, and special-blend steakhouse burger. For lighter options, best sellers include the aforementioned seafood choices, plus killer salads like the quinoa bowl and autumn salad with razor-thin shaved kale and Brussels sprouts. At the bar, mixologist Anthony Ducharme crafts ingenious as well as nostalgic cocktails from a vast arsenal of premium pours. If you’re into wine, Tauk is known for its well-curated wine list, chosen to complement the chef’s creative dishes. If you haven’t been to TAUK kitchen + bar in a while, or if you’ve always wanted to try it, now is a great time to experience a beloved local venue that has been recharged, redefined and refreshed for a New Year.

LOTS TO TACO ’BOUT WE POP IN FOR A VISIT TO THE LONG-STANDING TOWN FAVORITE, BOXCAR CANTINA

M

an cannot live on chips and salsa alone, but for just a moment it feels that you could when you dive into a basket of hand-cut tortilla chips and excellent salsa at Boxcar Cantina. Not to mention the addictive guacamole. These first bites here plus some sips of a margarita are just a taste of what keeps people coming back for fresh Tex-Mex at this family-friendly restaurant owned by the Farrell family. A blend of terrific food, hospitality and consistency have earned the restaurant bragging rights, as it celebrates a quarter century in business. Though we’ve eaten here dozens of times over the years, we recently went

for dinner to catch up on this longtime favorite. On a recent Saturday night, the entire restaurant was full at 7 p.m., and though we had a reservation, we wound up opting for a table in the bar area, which was hopping, too. Besides the much-better-than-average crispy chips and salsa opener, the menu includes some less expected starters. Some so substantial they could work as a full meal—like the Mexican pizza, a tortilla topped with nacho ingredients plus chicken or beef, or the Indian Posole Soup, which gets its richness and texture from the hominy (hulled corn kernels) and is topped with sliced avocado and paired with tortillas.

above: Guacamole, salsa and hand-cut chips right: Quatro Tacos

Red chile onion rings with chipotle ketchup for dipping are also a go-to. On the menu you’ll find a list of all of the farms and local purveyors that provide the ingredients, which has been a point of pride for the restaurant from its beginning, long before restaurants were touting what goes into their dishes. Certain specials are always available because they’re in high demand, such as the kale salad, a blend that includes microgreens (sourced from Abilis), a mix of veggies and avocado in a cilantrolime dressing. Topped with shrimp, salmon or chicken it becomes a main. Another frequent special, the fish tacos, have become a popular food-truck item, too—we like the chile-crusted salmon with corn-avo salsa. But for variety and a hearty portion, our go-to is the quatro tacos— well-seasoned chicken and pork in crispy corn tacos, or sub in beef or wild-caught shrimp to build your plate of four—served with brown rice and pinto beans. Regulars love any dish with the signature chicken tinga (the meat is mixed with tomatoes and has a smoky chipotle flavor), and the chicken tinga quesadilla is especially delicious. Also watch for seasonal dishes, such as the open-faced shrimp enchilada with veggies. For a treat, be sure to try the fried ice cream, a version that’s lighter than some and so worth it, or the traditional sopapillas, puffy bread “pillows” made for dipping into honey. » JANUARY 2020 GREENWICH

TEX-MEX SUCCESS

When John Farrell first opened Boxcar Cantina in 1994, “there were really no good Mexican restaurants in town,” says his son James, who grew up in Greenwich and went to Brunswick. John’s work in investment banking took him on frequent trips to Texas where he fell in love with Tex-Mex flavors. He wanted to bring authentic Northern New Mexican cuisine to his hometown, opening a restaurant that would serve food prepared with the highest quality ingredients. He partnered with local chefs and restaurant pros—including Nancy Roper who has since moved on to open Truck in Bedford— to make it a reality. At a time when farm-to-table wasn’t on most people’s radars, John and his team reached out to local farms to source produce and pastured meats. Besides the very tasty food and excellent margaritas, these are a few ingredients G that help the restaurant continue to thrive.

BOXCAR CANTINA

KEY INGREDIENTS TREND SETTERS The first certified Green Restaurant in the state, Boxcar has always been ahead of the curve, serving dishes made with organic produce, wild-caught seafood, pasture-raised meats long before it was popular to do so. It maintains a close relationship with many area farmers. ON A ROLL One of James’ first initiatives when he began working for the restaurant full-

time was to start a food truck. “Regulars got very excited,” he says. “It’s been great to get to know customers in their homes. Neighbors see the truck and we get inquiries that way too.” Since the truck rolled out two and a half years ago, they’ve done about 220 events, mostly private parties, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings. And they can accommodate a wide range of requests, having pulled off everything from a

A better way to improve your Golf Performance in Ridgefield

I was inspired to develop our Five Elements of Success Principles to encourage athletes to follow their passion and desire to improve. Roger Knick, Founder photo above

Recently, we met up with Ridgefield resident Roger Knick, the founder of The Golf Performance Center and Junior Golf Hub. Knick is a sports performance specialist and entrepreneur who has spent his 20 plus year career refining his knowledge and practical application of coaching, incorporating cuttingedge techniques.

GPC’s Main Campus that houses Ethan Allen Prep’s classrooms, dining hall and dormitories.

Knick believes that GPC’s success over the years in getting 100 plus athletes into 80+ colleges and universities is due to one thing—creating a plan for getting better and setting goals. He jokes, “People have the idea that you go to a golf instructor and you can easily be fixed! It’s a terrible model, and why many players have not improved for years. It’s important for coaches to really pay attention and to realize that each individual learns differently, which is what our coaches do best.” As a former Division One and professional athlete, Knick has a deep personal understanding of his clients’ goals and objectives and how to work with them to make it happen. His diverse client roster includes everyone from aspiring high school and college athletes to professional players with the PGA, LPGA, NHL, MLB and NBA. Knick recalls, “I was inspired to develop our Five Elements of Success Principles to encourage athletes to follow their passion and

desire to improve.” These include: developing good coaching/mentor relationships, understanding that “function dictates form,” mastering mental aspects of the game, learning to deal with failure, striving to have a curious and open mind, and using the right equipment. He notes: “I have applied these elements not only to golf, but to life as well.” Knick has also developed The Player Development System (PDS) that provides insight into an athlete’s abilities. Knick says, “We use our science-based coaching philosophy to develop a plan for improvement. We analyze a mental profile of each player to understand their learning style, to better connect and engage with the player and we assess the equipment in the bag. The end result is a competitive edge and a vastly improved game.”

There’s a better way to improve one’s game than weekend lessons and patchwork fixes, and you can find it at The Golf Performance Center in Ridgefield, the Northeast’s leading full-time golf academy for athletes of all ages and skill levels seeking to transform their game. At both The Golf Performance Center and their new residential campus for student athletes in grades 9-12 at Ethan Allen Prep, improving golf performance is seen as a science.

manda and Matthew met while undergraduates at Hobart and William Smith Colleges and remained close friends for a number of years until they finally began dating. Once the spark was ignited the couple dated long distance before buying a house together in Philadelphia (a house that truly became a home with the addition of their beloved Saint Bernard, Seamus). Soon Matthew proposed on Cape Cod in front of Amanda’s family. The couples friend, Nelle Miller Norberg, officiated at the ceremony at the home of the bride’s parents in Cos Cob. A reception followed at the Belle Haven Yacht Club. The bride, daughter of Cornelius Lighthall John Bates III and BK Bates of Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich Academy, Hobart and William Smith Colleges and New York University. Amanda works in real estate at Houlihan Lawrence in Greenwich. The groom, son of Bruce Goodro and Nancy Gunning of Massachusetts, graduated from Saint John’s High School, Hobart and William Smith Colleges and New York Law School. Matthew works in the Office of the Bronx District Attorney. The newlyweds live in Ossining, New York. »

ora and Richard both attended Roanoke College, but not at the same time. That’s where fate stepped in. Richard was visiting on campus over alumni weekend during Nora’s senior year. The two met and immediately hit it off. The rest, as they say, is history. The pair had been dating for over four years when Richard proposed at Riverside Yacht Club a few days before Christmas. A surprise party awaited them in the ballroom with family, friends, a fire and of course, champagne. Father Platt officiated at the ceremony at St. Catherine of Siena Church in Riverside. Once the serious business was behind them, the wedding party cruised (with Aperol spritzes in hand aboard the couple’s boat, Belle) from the Water Club in Cos Cob to the reception at Riverside Yacht Club. The bride, daughter of Ray Rodriguez of Florida and Kathleen Wilson of Philadelphia, graduated from Brewster Academy and Roanoke College. Nora is a project manager for Compound Ventures in Manhattan. The groom, son of Dick and Belinda Benincasa of Old Greenwich, graduated from Greenwich High School and Roanoke College. Richard is a trader for Millenium Partners in Greenwich. The Benincasas honeymooned in South Africa and Zanzibar before returning home to Greenwich. G

PAY BY THE RULES

HAPPY NEW YEAR—IT’S TIME TO FIND A TAX ADVISER TO HELP YOU PLAN RIGHT

Y

ou buy or you rent, you save and invest, you try to stockpile assets for your monthly bills or for sometime down the road. All the while, something nibbles at your pile, sometimes biting off great chunks. Someday, you think, I will heed that proviso—the one that pops up with each money move you make, the one that tells you to check with your tax adviser. These days, more and more people rely on software to prepare their tax returns. But life here in lower Fairfield County is complicated. And the tax code is complicated. That’s where an expert can help. “Consult with a tax adviser. That’s such a cliché,” says Doreen Bray, president of Saugatuck Tax Group in Westport (and a very busy tax adviser who agreed to chat only if we promised to tell readers that she is not accepting new clients). “I call it tax

CPA. Bray, for example, is an Enrolled Agent. She is licensed by the Department of the Treasury, and with each turn of the tax code, she is required to head back to the classroom and continue her training. Her firm includes a CPA, a tax preparer, a tax attorney, another Enrolled Agent and more. Just like a professional athletic team, they all have different roles. “A lot of times people don’t know what they need,” Bray says. “Over the years they do their own taxes, and they do a decent job of it; but when they have something new come up, they become insecure and give me a call.” Many tax advisers can’t squeeze in a new client come tax time, so be proactive. Who should you look for? “Find someone who specializes,” Bray suggests, as it is impossible for every tax professional to understand every nuance in the tax code. Do you run a small business? Have a challenging portfolio? Need trust and estate help? Ask potential candidates if they help with tax planning or missed deductions, or if they handle audits. Inquire about their certifications, education, licenses. On the flip side, make sure that the adviser asks questions and wants to see your previous returns. “We have a certain number of clients who are astute, and they come in with a list of questions,” says Bray. “We love this!” G

WHAT’S IN A NAME? Anyone with an IRS Tax Identification Number can file your tax return on your behalf. Make sure you understand who will actually be working work for you.

TAX PREPARER The preparer fills out simple paperwork or electronic tax returns, dots your i’s and crosses your t’s, and sends in your tax forms.

CERTIFIED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT His or her expertise lies in accounting, not necessarily in taxation. Bray says CPAs tend to be conservative when it comes to tax planning.

ENROLLED AGENT Enrolled Agents specialize in taxation. They understand the tax code, can get an IRS power of attorney and can represent you in your dealings with the IRS, including in an audit.

LICENSED TAX ATTORNEY He or she specializes in tax law. If you want to shelter income or if you find yourself in a tax dispute, the tax attorney is your best bet. “I love tax lawyers,” Bray says. “I think they’re God.”

planning, and not nearly enough brokers or tax preparers seize the situation when it presents itself.” When it comes to personal finance and investing, tax ramifications often take a back seat to conversations about allocation and returns. But careless tax planning can result in tens of thousands of dollars at tax time each year for many lower Fairfield County households—and untold sums over a lifetime. Think about your 401(k)s, health savings accounts, real estate transactions, your charitable contributions and estate planning, your side gig or your consulting, your marriage, your divorce. A tax adviser helps you structure your financial life and create a tax strategy in a way that legally reduces your tax burden, proactively. “Most people come in after the fact,” Bray says. “A good tax adviser should reach out to you periodically, long before problems arise.” With the arrival of this new year, resolve once and for all to line up the right person for the job, one who can find ways to reduce your tax liability, help you wrangle taxes in your investment portfolio, help you navigate a major life event. A good tax adviser should be eager to reduce your tax burden to the fullest extent of the law. Who is a tax adviser, anyway? Hint: It’s not necessarily your

Top Doctors 2020 SPECIAL PROFILE ELSA RASKIN, MD 2½ Dearfield Suite 102 Greenwich, CT 203.861.6621 Elsaraskinmd.com

CONVENIENTLY LOCATED JUST STEPS FROM GREENWICH Avenue, Dr. Elsa Raskin is ready to help you explore both surgical and non-surgical options to help create a more vibrant, youthful you. Dr. Raskin is a board-certified plastic surgeon with two decades of experience and since 2010 has been honored as a Top Doctor in the New York Metro Area by the independent healthcare research company, Castle Connolly. With specializations in face, eye, breast and body surgery, Dr. Raskin’s areas of expertise are small scar facelifts, breast augmentation with fat grafting or implants, breast implant revisions and mommy makeovers. Dr. Raskin also performs non-surgical skin rejuvenation with her signature liquid facelift with Renuva, Juvederm, Restylane and Botox (or other neuro-modulators). She has also adopted the revolutionary Profound radiofrequency—a noninvasive office procedure that is by far the best skin-tightening method available today. No matter how big or small the procedure, every patient benefits from Dr. Raskin’s topnotch training, Swiss precision and European sensibility. She was one of the first adopters of Smartlipo, or laser liposuction, in Fairfield County and has seen amazing results on hundreds of patients. For her, it is about improving a patient’s appearance and quality of life. Her meticulous eye to detail delivers a naturallooking outcome that blends beautifully with the patient’s overall appearance. Dr. Raskin completed her plastic surgery training at New York Presbyterian Hospital and Pittsburgh University Medical Center. She completed her

general surgery training at New York University and completed ophthalmology at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary. In addition, she completed an Oculoplastic Fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. She earned her MD degree from the University of Geneva Switzerland, where she grew up. Surgery can be performed at her fully accredited Greenwich Center for Plastic Surgery in a discreet and private atmosphere. The Center has received the highest certification by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). More involved procedures are performed in the cosmetic unit at Greenwich Hospital. Dr. Raskin is available to answer all of your questions, is dedicated to helping you feel comfortable with your decision and looks forward to being a supportive partner on your journey.

Top Doctors 2020 SPECIAL PROFILE LYNNE M. HAVEN, MD, PC 49 Lake Avenue Greenwich, CT 203.869.4242 LynneHavenMD.com

DR. LYNNE HAVEN IS A BOARD CERTIFIED DERMATOLOGIST in Greenwich who specializes in cosmetic dermatology and laser treatments. Dr. Haven graduated from Harvard University and received her medical degree from Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons. She completed her internship at Massachusetts General Hospital and her dermatology residency at New York University. Dr. Haven strives to provide state-of-the-art skin and laser treatments in a warm, caring environment. She offers Botox, injectable fillers, and Thermage for noninvasive skin tightening. In addition, she offers revolutionary body contouring technology, including CoolSculpting. According to Allergan, Dr. Haven is the No. 1 Botox provider in Greenwich, and she personally performs 100 percent of all Botox and filler treatments. Dr. Haven was selected as one of America’s Top Dermatologists. Dr. Haven offers two new ways to treat a double chin, Kybella and CoolSculpt Mini. Another exciting offering is Volbella, a new injectible filler for smoother, softer, natural looking lips. Dr. Lynne Haven uses the revolutionary PicoSure for laser tattoo removal, acne scarring, brown spots and facial rejuvenation. Dr. Haven says, “The PicoSure is by far the best tattoo removal laser. Typically, tattoos can be treated with the PicoSure in half the number of treatments compared to other lasers.” Her patients are also excited by the results of the PicoSure Focus laser for facial rejuvenation, which can dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines,

wrinkles, acne scars and skin discoloration. It improves skin texture and is safe for all skin types.

Top Doctors 2020 SPECIAL PROFILE DR. SARAH DOLDER

Greenwich Point Dermatology 20 East Elm Street Greenwich, CT 203.764.2230 greenwichpointdermatology.com

DR. SARAH DOLDER STARTED Greenwich Point Dermatology after spending twelve years building a career in New York City, but her love for dermatology began as a young girl in sunny Australia—a place where zinc covered noses and broad-brimmed hats are part of the school uniform. She attended the University of Melbourne, earning her Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery with Honors. She also completed her Bachelor of Medical Science at the University of Cambridge, United Kingdom. After moving to New York, Dr. Dolder completed her residency at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Today, she is a board-certified dermatologist and instructor of clinical dermatology at Columbia University. Dr. Dolder is dedicated to excellence in comprehensive medical dermatological care, with a specific focus on acne and other inflammatory skin conditions, skin cancer, and cosmetic dermatology. She provides exceptional expertise in all facets of facial rejuvenation, including Botox, fillers and laser and resurfacing treatments. “I believe that with modern science and technology, no one should endure an uncomfortable or damaging dermatological condition. My passion for delivering remarkable changes in the confidence and well-being of patients drives everything I do,” Dr. Dolder says. Dr. Dolder has spent her career exploring how lifestyle influences overall skin health. Her clinical philosophy is best summarized as “more than skin deep,” and she loves to share her insights with patients during their visits and through The

Brilliant Blog—a resource on her website that celebrates the connection between our overall wellness and appearance. Started in 2015, Greenwich Point Dermatology proudly delivers individualized patient care, covering medical, surgical and cosmetic dermatology. With a fiercely loyal and ever-growing client list, Dr. Dolder opened a beautiful new dermatology boutique in the summer of 2019 right off Greenwich Avenue. Dr. Dolder says, “Dedicated skin care is essential to aging gracefully, so by opening near the Avenue [above the Saks Shoe Store], I hope to make my patients’ dermatology visits part of their lifestyle, part of their routine.” The new space features state-of-the-art exam rooms, a treatment room for organic facials, medical-grade LED phototherapy, infrared sauna and an Australian beauty boutique. Skincare can be intimidating, but Dr. Dolder strives to create a unique and inviting experience for her patients. “Greenwich is home to many busy and sophisticated men and women looking for exceptional care, so I am excited to serve them in a relaxing space in a convenient location.” When she is not caring for her patients, Dr. Dolder relishes her time with her husband and three children.

DR. PETER HASAPIS HAS NEVER LIVED FAR FROM HIS Fairfield County roots. After attending Columbia University and Cornell University Medical College, he completed his residency at New YorkPresbyterian Hospital. He’s been practicing in New Canaan for nearly twenty years. “I am very fortunate—it is truly a privilege to practice in the community that I was raised in,” says Dr. Hasapis. It has now been ten years since Dr. Hasapis made the switch to a private-pay, concierge model, and that has made all the difference for his patients. The smaller practice size enables him to spend more time with each person and forge much more significant relationships. “Everyone in the practice has my cell number and email, and I encourage them to use them. It makes for a much different experience; I love it, and so do my patients.”

She manages a broad spectrum of medical issues, including heart disease evaluation, comprehensive women’s health issues, gerontology and cancer screening. In 2014, Dr. Subramanian transitioned to a concierge medicine practice. “Practicing good medicine requires more time listening to what your patient has to say.” Her philosophy has allowed her to spend time and provide quality care without compromise.

DR. JULIA VOYTOVICH GRADUATED FROM THE Moscow Medical Institute. She then went on to complete her residency at Norwalk Hospital, an affiliate of Yale University School of Medicine in New Haven, in 1996. She has been practicing internal medicine in New Canaan since the completion of her residency program. Dr. Voytovich has been a certified member of the American Board of Internal Medicine since 1996. She is also a member of the Fairfield County Medical Society and the Connecticut State Medical Society. “The concierge medicine model gives me time to deliver personalized and comprehensive care to my patients and be always available to their needs; it requires around the clock dedication and the great passion for medicine.”

DR. JAMES SLATER ALWAYS BELIEVES IN PUTTING HIS PATIENTS FIRST. HE WAS among the first in the state to recognize that health insurance was depriving patients of sorely needed services and time. Thus, in 2005, he was one of the first physicians in Fairfield County to offer an innovative concierge medical practice, combining accessibility and patient advocacy with premier quality medical care. Dr. Slater graduated from Tufts and then New York Medical College, where he received the coveted senior student school award for his accomplishments in community and preventive medicine. He completed his internal medicine residency at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. He has been consecutively voted as one of Castle Connolly’s “Top Doctors” in Fairfield County, Connecticut.

Heart Smart

My husband has a family history of cardiac conditions. Is there any way to take a preventative stance to make sure a heart attack is not in his future? A: As Benjamin Franklin wisely stated, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” So yes, much can be done in order to prevent heart attacks, says Larry Leibowitz, M.D., founder and medical director at Matrix Personalized Medicine LLC in New Canaan. A healthy diet is paramount. Medical evidence increasingly points to a wholefood, plant-based diet as the best means of preventing many

A: There are affordable ways to

go the extra mile to ensure that a heart attack is not in your future. Ask your doctor to perform a lipid particle blood analysis, which will enable him or her to assess for hidden risk factors not typically revealed in more routine blood panels, Leibowitz says. Additionally, for those who may be at increased risk, I like to order a test called a CT Calcium Score. This involves a type of CT scan that delivers only a low dose of radiation and enables us to inspect the heart vessels themselves for any signs of early coronary artery disease. The test is readily available, typically costs less than $200 and is endorsed by both the American College

greenwichmag.com

74

of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. In terms of screening for other diseases, aside from the routine evaluations typically performed during the course of an annual physical, affordable genetic testing is available for those with personal or family medical histories that suggest predispositions to a number of diseases, including cardiovascular disease and cancers. »

chronic diseases, including heart disease. A diet that is low in saturated fats, cholesterol, excess simple sugars and processed foods is critical. I highly recommend more green things, fewer chicken wings. Additionally, regular exercise is essential, in that it helps us to maintain a healthy weight, lower blood sugar levels and ideal blood pressure. And an often-overlooked but very important factor is a healthy sleep pattern. Erratic sleep schedules, frequent interruptions and sleep apnea can all contribute to increased cardiovascular risk. If your husband awakens you with his snoring, before giving him the elbow, take a minute or two to pay attention to his pattern of breathing if it’s not smooth and regular; he may need a sleep evaluation. Stress reduction is also important. Hard-working people who live a high-stress lifestyle are at increased risk for heart disease and need to find time for themselves, to relax, to pursue other interests and to spend time with friends and family. Lastly, make sure your husband remains current with regular doctor visits in order to monitor his weight, blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.


Doctors point to a whole food, plant-based diet when working towards a healthy lifestyle.

A:

Hives can occur at any time in life, as a reaction to a number of triggers, explains Michael L. Lewin, M.D., PC, a Norwalk-based allergist. If you are suspicious about the timing coinciding with food consumption, you might want to have some allergy testing done to identify possible food allergies. You might also want to note what foods you were eating prior to the onset of hives or keep a food diary to track what might be causing these outbreaks.

Q:

Q: I can’t wear anything that shows my legs because of my unsightly veins. Is there a way to get rid of them?

My son has seasonal asthma that comes on in the fall and spring. Should he be on medication throughout the year?

A:

Varicose veins and spider veins can be eliminated permanently only if all the leaks (high pressure sources) responsible for the veins and spiders are eliminated, too, says Dr Heshmat Majlessi, M.D., FACS, FICS member of European Venous Forum and American Phlebology Society at Rye Vein-Laser Center in Rye, NY. Addressing only the visible varicose veins and spider veins is inadequate. This can be done quite safely with no downtime and under local anesthesia. The end result will be a perfect leg, if all the steps are done correctly.

A:

If your son is completely symptom-free at other times of the year, asthma medications may not be necessary. However, since his seasonal asthma is very likely related to seasonal pollen allergies, you might want to treat the underlying allergies that are causing the asthma.

Q: Isn’t vein removal painful? A:

Most patients are sensitive and do not like pain. Elimination of all the varicose veins and spider veins can be performed with very little discomfort so patients can resume their normal activity immediately, he explains. Our patented Veno-Merse® Technique is designed to get to the source of the spider veins and varicose veins, to treat the leaks and the feeding veins that are responsible for them. Laser vein treatment will be an adjunct at the end of the treatment. The legs will be free of varicose veins and spider veins. The entire course of treatment is performed at the office with no major anesthesia and no disability or lengthy recovery times.

A Hairy Situation Q: I’m growing hair in weird places, why? And what can I do about it? A: Unwanted hair growth can be caused by hormonal or endocrine imbalances, so it’s advisable to see your dermatologist for a proper diagnosis and possible blood test, advises Sarah Dolder, M.D. from Greenwich Point Dermatology in Greenwich. Typically, laser hair removal is the best way to get rid of excess hair permanently.

Q: I’m only 43, but my hair seems to be thinning at a fast rate. What is happening? A:

As we age, hormonal changes can cause hair loss and hair thinning, a phenomenon we call female pattern baldness. Stress, medications, diet and lifestyle can also be factors at play, Dolder says. Fortunately, there are a number of treatment options to restore

I have a pain in the lower part of my skull that is different from a headache. Someone mentioned that it could be nerve pain. I don’t know what type of doctor to see. Can you help? A: It can be difficult to

distinguish “head” pain from “neck” pain and there is often significant overlap, says Raj Gala, M.D., spine surgeon at Connecticut Neck and Back Specialists in Danbury. Some of the small joints of the upper neck can become inflamed and cause

pain at the base of the skull. In addition, this can irritate spinal nerves, resulting in radiating symptoms.

Q: My joints seem to be making a lot of noise these days, but I’m fairly fit and active at 51. Should I be concerned? Could I be doing damage?

Q:

No matter what position I get in or how many pillows I use, I can’t seem to get comfortable in bed at night. I am in pain. Any ideas on what I could do to get a good night’s rest?

A: Many people are worried

about the “snap, crackle, pop” they hear when they turn their neck or back. It’s okay. There are many joints in the spine that move with every action we perform. Sometimes these joints make noises. This occurs when gas bubbles burst within the joint fluid, or when a ligament or tendon stretches as the joint moves. This is completely normal, which is why the majority of “joint noise” is not associated with pain. Don’t worry and stay active!

A: Everyone needs a good

night’s sleep! The first step is figuring out the root cause of the spine pain. Likely the pain is muscular in nature, which is the case 99 percent of the time. Consider cooling down at the end of the day with ice packs on

the affected areas. Many people also find relief from taking an anti-inflammatory medication at bedtime. There are also herbs, such as turmeric, that can be added to food or taken in pill form that have been shown to decrease inflammation. If the pain continues, get evaluated by a doctor, Gala recommends.

Woman Trouble Q. I sweat so much at night, what can I do? A: The medical term for

excessive sweating is called hyperhydrosis. Usually it isn’t caused by a serious condition, but since it can be, one needs to be evaluated by a medical professional. It is, however, a very common complaint and can really affect quality of life, says Leslie Goldstone, M.D. at Women’s Healthcare of Trumbull. Some ways to reduce sweating: make sure you are at a healthy weight, reduce sugar and white carbohydrates (white bread, white rice, pasta, white potatoes) and reduce caffeine and alcohol intake. Also: Dress in layers, sleep in a cool room with a light blanket, and keep a small hand-held or desktop fan nearby. Medical evaluation includes thyroid and blood sugar testing, and testing to rule out viral and bacterial infection (Lyme, HIV, tuberculosis among others), malignancy and disorders of the nervous system. Certain medications can also cause excessive sweating. Hormone overproduction and hormonal deficiencies (estrogen deficiency in peri- and post-menopausal women and testosterone

deficiency in men) are also a common cause. In menopause, estrogen levels decline, and the sweating manifests as a “hot flash,” which is a brief burst of heat that lasts a few minutes but can occur many times during the day or night and can disrupt daily activities and sleep. For people with excessive underarm sweating, a dermatologist can prescribe a special antiperspirant.

when they do come, as the uterine lining can become thicker and less stable. Also, as we get older, we are at increased risk for developing uterine conditions that can cause heavier or longer periods. Up to 50 percent of women over age 40 will develop fibroid growths on the uterus that can cause very heavy or prolonged periods. Adenomyosis is a benign and common condition that can cause heavy or prolonged periods; it occurs when endometrial glands from the uterine lining grow into the actual muscle of the uterus. Endometrial polyps, which grow inside of the uterus, can cause heavy periods and sometimes bleeding in between periods. Cancer of the uterus is an important cause of new onset heavy or abnormal bleeding that needs to be screened for. Fortunately, it is less common than benign causes. Certain medications, like blood thinners, copper IUDs and hormonal contraceptives can also make periods heavy. It is important to see a gynecologist to make sure there is no precancerous or cancerous change in the uterus and to determine the cause of the heavy menstrual bleeding and devise an acceptable treatment plan. Women can also become quite anemic with heavy menstrual bleeding, and this needs screening as well. »

Q: Why is my period so much heavier than it used to be?

A: The amount and duration

of blood flow changes as many women get older due to many factors. In our 40s, women do not ovulate as regularly, which can result in menstrual periods that are farther apart and heavier

Weighty Matters Q: How can I control borderline high cholesterol? A: There are different types

of cholesterol. There are “bad” cholesterols (the total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol) and “good” or protective cholesterols (the HDL cholesterol). If the total and LDL cholesterol are elevated but the HDL cholesterol is also elevated, maybe nothing needs to be done, explains James A Slater M.D., an internist in New Canaan. Also, cholesterol can be elevated because of genetic mechanisms or acquired mechanisms. If the former exists, and several first-degree family members have high cholesterol, (an unfortunate individual may just eat bark off of a tree and still have high cholesterol). The problem is the liver. It is just genetically programmed to make a lot of cholesterol. So, regrettably, medications are needed for this situation. If the cholesterol is elevated because of acquired, lifestyle and dietary choices, then the words of journalist and Harvard professor Michael Pollan, are germane.

Nowadays, specialists in this field know that there are many interacting hormones from different places in the human body that affect metabolism and the activity of fat stores. Generally, a diet higher in protein than carbohydrates is moderately successful. But, weight loss is difficult, and takes time, persistence and planning. Not easy. In terms of exercise that would help, the American Heart Association recommends 150 minutes per week, at least 30 minutes per day, of moderate exercise, or 75 minutes per week of vigorous exercise.

In evaluating this problem, it basically comes down to deciding if the fatigue is organic, that is, medical, has an underlying cause, can be defined either on physical exam or by blood/imaging test

rue luxury means different things to different people. Perhaps it’s traveling by private jet, being waited on by a personal chef or hiding away in a tropical bungalow. But for a growing number of travelers, the latest trend in rarefied luxe air seems to be the freedom from technology. While it’s been reported that many Americans say that not having Wi-Fi would ruin their vacation more than food poisoning, for some, being offline is precisely the point. Deborah Calmeyer, CEO of Roar Africa, has been sending guests on ultra-luxe safaris for over a decade. When Robert Redford returned to the continent for the first time since filming Out of Africa, he turned to Deborah, who is seeing an increase in travelers seeking a true escape. “I recently had one of my clients tell me that her definition of the ultimate five-star vacation experience was the freedom and permission to unplug and log off,” she says. So it got us to thinking: Can a few days without technology make any real change? According to Dr. David Greenfield, founder and medical director of the Center for Internet and Technology Addiction in West Hartford, on average, Americans are now spending three to five hours daily on their devices. That’s about 15 percent of your entire life. He calls cell phones the “world’s tiniest slot machines.” At any moment when that notification dings, our brain gets a shot of dopamine because we have the chance that it might be something exciting. The addiction happens because our brains create new dopamine receptors, and they need to be fed continuously. Taking a break from technology can help reset these receptors and, according to Dr. Greenfield, “You’ll start to experience pleasure from things you forgot were pleasurable.” Even a small change is a step in the right direction. If the thought of going sans cellular cold turkey seems ghastly, don’t worry. We’ve broken the experiences down into a variety of off-the-grid categories. Here are some places that let you check out once you check in. »

he 1980 movie BLUE LAGOON established the “escape to a deserted island” fantasy for a generation. The island that housed the cast and crew now offers just that. When Turtle Island’s owner agreed to filming, he stipulated that he would keep all of the beach bungalows and structures when the movie wrapped. The fourteen villas have been welcoming solitude-seeking guests ever since. The island, originally Nanuya Levu, is located in the center of Fiji’s Yasawa archipelago. Getting to Fiji involves a ten-hour nonstop flight from L.A., followed by a seaplane ride. Upon arrival, female guests are whisked from the plane and carried to land by strapping Fijian warriors (we assume the men remove their shoes and wade in). There’s no cell signal here, and the island’s only Wi-Fi connection is spotty at best and inconveniently located on a porch next to the kitchen entrance on the resort’s one truck path.

She can guide you on island tours, and even accompany you on snorkeling excursions pointing out marine life. Or if you prefer, she can leave you to yourself. The resort is couples-only, except for one or two weeks per year when families are allowed. There’s a maximum of twentyeight guests at any given time to share the island’s 500-acre expanse. Every other day you’re assigned a private beach, to have all to yourself. The staff brings you everything you need, like a picnic lunch and a full cooler. Then they take off until it’s time to return, putting up an “occupied” sign where the golf cart would enter. Rates start at $2,100 per night for both couples and families. During family week, children under five each get their own nanny, and older children are assigned a Bure Buddy, leaving Mom and Dad free to relax.

bout a decade ago, Ann Jamison began to suspect her father, Dirk, was struggling at home. A medical condition that impaired his vision had made driving impossible. As the widower advanced into his late seventies and his world got smaller, his daughter found him increasingly anxious and depressed. “He was always a social guy who enjoyed his friends, his church and the groups he was part of,” Jamison explains. “I worried about how much time he was spending alone and what was happening when no one was there to help.” One day, Jamison drove from her Fairfield home to her father’s place in Ridgefield unannounced. “When I popped in on him, a lot of the things I was worrying about were confirmed,” she recalls. “He wasn’t shaven. The house was unkempt. The fridge was a mess and greenwichmag.com

there wasn’t much food. Things were clearly just not going well.” So began a long, and at times, challenging conversation between Jamison and her father that led to him eventually taking an apartment in an assisted living facility close to his Ridgefield friends and connections. There, Jamison says her dad lived “nine-and-a-half incredibly happy years.” Getting to the place where her father would even discuss assisted living wasn’t easy. “There was a lot of resistance, and when he finally did decide to consider a senior community, the process of choosing felt completely overwhelming,” Jamison says. Her dilemma then has become an increasingly common one today for both seniors and their adult children or caregivers. Now the owner of Senior Living Options, a Stamford-

Making the decision about SENIOR LIVING OPTIONS in Fairfield County


based consulting firm that guides other seniors and their families through the process of navigating their living options, Jamison provides free services—inspired by her own experiences seeking the right living situation for her dad— that are increasingly in demand. She notes that research suggests some 70 percent of today’s Baby Boomers, age sixty-five and older, will need some sort of help living independently during their lifetime. “When you see that number, you realize it’s kind of staggering,” she says. “Which is why conversations about how we want to live as we get older is something we should all be talking about.” Yet too often, geriatrics experts say, the conversations don’t happen soon enough. Roni Lang, a clinical social worker at Greenwich Hospital’s Center for Healthy Aging, says she counsels seniors and their families in the aftermath of emergencies, such as falls, the onset of a chronic illness or the sudden death of spouses and partners. These situations often force people into hasty decisions about their care. Case in point was a female client with dementia whose husband, her devoted caregiver, died unexpectedly. “Too often, that question of, ‘What do we do about Mom or Dad?’ is being asked when there is a crisis,” says Lang. “While I see a great desire on the part of many seniors to age in place at home, that can have its own complications if you don’t have the ability to put good systems in place.”

TALKING IT OUT F

or the adult children worried that older parents or relatives are struggling to live independently, discussing their needs can be intensely complicated. “Even in families with the best of intentions, these things can get tense, especially when you are talking about someone leaving a home where they have been for decades,” notes Roni Lang of Greenwich Hospital’s Center for Healthy Aging. “The conversations can open up old wounds and dredge up emotional baggage that’s existed in families for years.” Here are some tips for broaching this sensitive subject.

Talk Before It’s Necessary

Make It About You, Too

Strive for Consensus

“As difficult as it is to ask your parents how they imagine they would like to live if they needed help and care,” says Senior Living Option’s Ann Jamison, “having the conversations now, allows you to plan and consider your options before you’re forced into something.”

“Parents don’t want their kids to worry about them,” notes Jamison. She suggests saying things like, “I feel guilty that you seem to be having a hard time.” Otherwise, consider, “I am so busy, and I worry constantly that we are not doing enough to take care of you.”

Siblings may approach their aging parents’ challenges with varying degrees of acceptance and denial, so try to have a family meeting (even scheduling folks in remotely) to get everyone on the same page. “Your sister out-of-state may think Mom is fine, but you may see her every day and be more acutely aware of her deterioration and need for support,” says Becker.

Choose Your Words Carefully “Never attack anyone or put them on the defensive,” says Hartford HealthCare’s Nancy Becker, who suggests delineating concerns in the most nonjudgmental way possible. “State things you have witnessed in a very factual way without making it personal, critical or angry.”

Do More Listening Than Talking Promote as much participation as possible from the seniors at the focus of the discussion. “Respect them for the mature adults that they are,” says Becker. “Try to really listen to what they want and from that you may be able to establish goals and next steps.”

THE ASSISTED LIVING BOOM For those who can afford it, assisted living communities, where residents live in their own apartments but receive additional care and support, have become an increasingly popular option. The appeal is that these facilities tend to offer round-the-clock care in socially dynamic environments where residents can still enjoy the privacy of their own apartments. Some luxe local communities boast everything from swimming pools and day spas to French lessons and yoga classes. By the year 2040, the U.S. Census Bureau estimates stock of this type of senior housing in the United States will have doubled. That trend is evident in Fairfield County, where it seems an assisted living facility is now populating prominent corners from Greenwich to Fairfield and there are several more in various stages of development.

Expect Pushback “Unless it’s a crisis, you may have to do a lot of back and forth with someone before things get settled,” says Jamison. “Don’t be surprised to take a step forward one week and go backwards the next, but the point is to have the conversations.”

“Done right, assisted living can actually begin to turn back the clock,” says Ted Doyle, vice president of marketing and communications for LCB Senior Living, a regional manager and developer of luxury assisted living facilities. Its local properties include The Residence at Summer Street in Stamford, The Residence at Selleck’s Woods in Darien and, soon, The Residence at Westport (set to open in summer 2020). “If you are in a good facility with the right supports and social opportunities,” he says, “you almost get to be yourself again because some of the isolation you’ve been experiencing ends.” Doyle says that some of the most progressive senior living communities, including LCB’s, recognize that many seniors experiencing agerelated challenges still want—and deserve—to be deeply connected to the world around them. “While bingo and a glass of wine can be fun, our focus tends to be more on stimulating engagement; things like foreign language lessons, lectures, yoga or Tai Chi classes,” he explains. IS IT THE RIGHT FIT FOR YOU? “I start to talk about assisted living as an option whenever I see someone really struggling with the tasks of daily living,” says Nancy Becker, supervisor at Hartford HealthCare’s Center for Healthy Aging, which provides free referral and assessment services to seniors and their families throughout the state. (The service is expanding in Fairfield County due to Hartford HealthCare’s recent affiliation with Bridgeport-based St. Vincent’s Medical Center.) “The things that start to worry you are when people can no longer tend to basic things like meal preparation, personal hygiene, managing their medications or just running errands,” she says. “If someone has lost their ability to drive, you are also dealing with greater isolation, which can also lead to a lot of depression. One challenge builds on the next, so that the person really starts to decline.” The onset of dementia and diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, is another reason many families consider assisted living communities, as they provide a level security and attention many families want for their loved ones, Ann Jamison adds. “A great deal of what many decisions come down to is proximity and a sense that you believe the person moving in will be well cared for,” says LCB’s Ted Doyle. “For many families, the idea that you can stop by to visit Mom on

the way home from work becomes a major consideration.” One downside to assisted living can be its significant costs. Unlike skilled nursing facilities, the price of moving in is not covered by federal programs such as Medicare or Medicaid. Fairfield County rents for these units can range from around $5,000 to $7,000 a month, often more for memory-care units. “On paper, the costs can elicit some sticker shock,” says Doyle, “but one thing we encourage people to do is really crunch those numbers. Many people in Fairfield County have homes that hold a great deal of value that can actually cover the costs. When you compare costs for things such as property taxes, utilities, food, transportation, entertainment and housekeeping, “in many cases, assisted living is actually less expensive than staying at home, especially if there’s substantial care involved.” Yet Becker notes for many seniors, the costs of assisted living can be prohibitive, particularly if they lack quality long-term care insurance or significant savings and other assets. She points out the same can be true of home-based care if someone requires round-the-clock live-in help. Becker works closely with families to evaluate all their financial options before ruling anything out. “If a house needs to be sold to afford it—and often that’s the case—a bridge loan can sometimes help. Sometimes, children will step in to help cover the rent until the house is sold or other assets are liquidated.” She also notes that there are some limited benefits avail-

able for veterans and, on rarer occasions, help available through community-based housing programs. WHEN IT’S TIME TO MAKE A CHOICE Tour an assisted living facility and, inevitably, you’ll be warmly greeted by the marketing team and gifted upon your departure with a freshly baked pound cake or some other decadent treat to serve as an enticing reminder that you or your loved one will feel right at home. To get beyond the allure of the goodies, Doyle urges “trusting your gut” when making these important decisions. “Pay attention to everything,” he stresses. “If you are on a tour with the executive director, are they greeting the residents by name? Are the maintenance people doing the same? If you see something that touches you when you walk through, going with that feeling can be really important.” Two years ago, Jane, an eighty-three-yearold widow from Westport, put her Colonial on the market and moved into an assisted living facility in a nearby town. Her decision came months after she suffered a serious fall and learned she was in the early stages of a progressive neurological disorder. After weeks in a rehab facility, she reluctantly accepted the fact that she could not safely return to her sprawling two-story home without major renovations and daily help. “The idea of leaving my home was a tough pill to swallow, but the reality is that my health

TIPS FOR MAKING THE ADJUSTMENT TO SENIOR LIVING

ating back to 1903, Greenwich’s Nathaniel Witherell is the state’s only municipally owned nursing home. Now its services reflect many of the health-care and residential living needs of today’s seniors; ranging from short-term rehab to long-term skilled nursing, memory care and an off-site program for aging in place. Executive Director, Allen Brown answers our questions.

Q: Choosing a long-term care facility for a parent or relative is challenging. What makes it so? A: Deciding to move a family member into a skilled nursing facility can be emotionally trying. Often the decision needs to be made quickly because it is prompted by illness or an injury necessitating a move. Adult children can feel guilty about not being able to care for their parents at home and worry about whether they’ll receive good care. This lack of planning and uncertainty can be the most taxing. Q: How do you help families decide?

Q: What if someone is considering

Q: What tips do you have for

Q: Is it difficult to gain admission?

Q: How do you customize treatment in the memory care unit? A: The Witherell’s specialized Memory Care Unit for residents with dementia and Alzheimer’s

Keeping your loved one near home or in a communitybased facility, helps. Because the Witherell is townowned, residents get the added comfort of living among former Greenwich neighbors, old friends or colleagues.

features a well-coordinated, twenty-four-hour program that considers every aspect of someone’s daily medical and personal needs. We encourage each resident to participate in activities that they’d most enjoy. We also strongly believe in therapeutic communication— simple gestures like eye contact, hand holding and calm reassurances let residents know that we’re there to help them. Families are welcomed and encouraged to become part of the care team here; it really enhances the home-like environment.

A: First, we advise caregivers to look for signs that a parent can’t safely reside independently. Things like forgetting to turn off the stove, frequent falls, or not eating regularly, often indicate it’s time to seek long-term care. Then, it’s important to find a place that delivers high quality, consistent care. A low staff turnover rate is important in that regard. The Witherell’s staff turnover rate of 7 percent is six times lower than the average nursing home turnover rate in Connecticut. The ability to visit often should also be taken into consideration.

adjusting to this new way of life? A: A successful transition takes time and effort. The transition period for residents is about three months, but it can take up to six months for the family to really come to terms with the change.

Seek familiarity.

Tap into the full gamut of services. The nursing and recreation staff, chaplaincy department and on-staff social workers are all there to get to know each resident individually. Meet with everyone and share what your loved one enjoys, hobbies especially.

The Witherell, but ultimately decides to stay at home or with a relative. Are there still ways you can help? A: Witherell at Home provides nonmedical home care services for seniors who are either aging at home, or are recovering from an injury or illness. Witherell at Home was created to give family and caregivers a resource so that they know their loved ones are safe and getting the help they need at home with things like meal preparation, light housekeeping, grooming or transportation.

Encourage engagement. Specific interest groups—like bridge club or men’s groups—help residents make friends based on common interests. Encourage your loved one to seek these groups out, and help them key into the events calendar to identify opportunities.

Don’t expect a major transformation.

A: The Witherell welcomes residents from surrounding towns and we do prioritize Greenwich residents and their families. We work hard to accommodate all requests. Nearly all of our shortterm patients and long-term residents are Greenwich citizens or have family members who reside in town.

If your loved one was always a loner, it’s unrealistic to expect a metamorphosis now. At the Witherell, residents who are less social are encouraged to enjoy their solo activities in common areas, which increases socialization and prevents isolation.

will continue to decline, and I will eventually need a lot more help than I do right now,” explains Jane, who asked that her full name not be used because she has not shared details of her medical condition beyond immediate family. While Jane’s two adult daughters asked her to move in with them (and she briefly took turns doing so with both), she opted for a onebedroom assisted living apartment in an effort to maintain some cherished independence. “I adore my daughters and their families, but I’ve lived alone for fifteen years and I’m just used to it.” The residential community she chose now has her living two miles from one daughter and fifteen from the other. Jane speaks warmly of a staff caregiver who helps her daily with light chores and dressing. She also enjoys a Tai Chi class on the premises. While she says it took time to get used to taking meals in a communal dining room, “I have lots of help with things I need help with, but still come and go as I please.” To that end, she was about to take a ride service to her grandson’s soccer game and then planned to spend the evening with his family. Ann Jamison, whose dad, Dirk, died unexpectedly a few years ago, says after initially resisting the mere suggestion of assisted living, he became a happier more engaged guy within weeks of moving in. “The residents and staff became like an extended family. The day before he died, Dad was dancing and went out to dinner with friends,” she says. “As his daughter, I could not have imagined a more meaningful G way for him to live his last decade.” Resources The Center for Healthy Aging at Greenwich Hospital: Recognized as a National Center of Excellence from the American Geriatrics Society, the center provides comprehensive services with elderly patients, including support groups.
