Heart-Smart Cuisine Simple ways to reduce your risk for cardiovascular disease.

C

ardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States. And as we all know, diet plays an important role in the development of major heart-attack risk factors such as hypertension, obesity, diabetes and arthrosclerosis. Changing your diet and implementing diet-based prevention methods is not only more feasible, but ultimately more cost-effective than relying on drugs. Here’s how to get started:

LIMIT UNHEATHLY FATS Believe it or not, fat is an important nutrient to have in your diet. But it’s all about the types of fat you choose. Fats are a vital structural component of cell membranes and are required for absorption of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K. Limiting foods high in trans or saturated fats will lessen the risk of cardiovascular disease. Limit the amount of solid fats you consume, such as butter, margarine, shortening, fried food and fast food. Include more polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, which can help lower so-called “bad” cholesterol. Good sources for these fats include olive oil, canola oil, nuts, seeds, fish and avocados.

Have fish at least twice a week, especially salmon, mackerel, and herring, which contain omega 3 fatty acids. These fatty acids help to lower undesirable blood fats known as triglycerides. Also, make sure meat is never fried and that milk is low-fat or skim, not whole.

EAT FRUITS AND VEGGIES Fruits and vegetables contain many nutrients that may benefit the heart, including folate, potassium, plant sterols (shown to lower cholesterol) and antioxidants such as vitamin C and flavonoids. They’re also a great source of fiber. Snacking and filling up with more fruits and vegetables helps you to eat less high-fat food, such as meat, cheese and processed products.

CHOOSE LOW-FAT PROTEINS

GO FOR WHOLE GRAINS Whole grains are another great source of fiber and other nutrients that help regulate blood pressure and play a role in heart health. You can increase your whole grains by finding substitutes for refinedgrain products. Look for whole-grain cereal, oatmeal, quinoa, brown rice, whole-wheat bread and flaxseed.

HOLD THE SALT High salt or sodium intake can contribute to high blood pressure, which is a known risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The most recent federal dietary guidelines sug-

Lean meats, such as poultry, fish, low-fat dairy, beans, soy products and eggs are your best sources of high-quality, low-fat protein.

gest healthy adults consume no more than 2,300 milligrams of sodium a day, which is the equivalent of about 1 teaspoon. If you’re aged 51 or older, African-American or have high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease, then you should consume no more than 1,500 milligrams per day. Putting down the saltshaker is the first step toward reducing the amount of salt you use daily. However, many processed foods, such as canned soups and frozen entrées, contain high amounts of salt. So, eating more fresh food and making your own meals is your best bet. If you aren’t much of a cook and rely on the convenience of prepared meals, look for reduced sodium options.

CONTROL PORTIONS It’s way too easy to eat too much – especially at restaurants, where portions are often so large. Knowing proper portion sizes is important in learning how much to eat and when to stop. It may take some time to be able to visually decipher what exactly a cup or half cup looks like, so it’s OK to initially measure things out. Here are some general guidelines: 3 ounces of meat = size of a deck of cards 1/3 cup = 1 serving of pasta or rice ½ cup = 1 serving of fruit ½ cup cooked, 1 cup raw = 1 serving of vegetables 1 slice = 1 serving of bread ½ cup dry cereal or oatmeal = 1 serving of grain 8 ounces (1 cup) = 1 serving of milk 4 ounces (1/2 cup) = 1 serving of fruit juice ■ Tara Gidus, MS, RD, is a nationally recognized expert and media spokesperson on topics related to nutrition, fitness and health.

Planning for the Inevitable Documents speak for you when you can’t speak for yourself.

I

llness, taxes and death. Since all are inevitable, it only makes

sense to prepare for them. That way, you’ll make certain that your welfare and wealth don’t fall into the hands of the courts – or ne’er-do-well relatives. When it comes to estate planning, Floridians are already at an advantage, tax-wise. The state doesn’t levy an estate tax – or an income tax, for that matter – so only the federal estate tax comes into play. And that particular tax has been in an almost constant state of flux for the past several years. Under the Economic Growth and Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2001, the federal estate tax was eliminated in 2010. It returned in 2011, but exempted estates valued at $5 million or less for individuals and $10 million or less for couples. As of Jan. 1, 2012, the exemption increases to $5.12 million for individuals and $10.24 million for couples. The portability provision introduced in 2011 remains in effect in 2012, mean-

ing that the surviving spouse, in addition to his or her own $5.12 million exemption, will be able to use any portion of the deceased spouse’s exemption that went unused. Also in Florida, the state’s constitution specifically exempts an individual’s homestead from almost all creditor claims, except for mechanic’s liens, taxes and mortgages. Life insurance and annuities, because they vest directly to the surviving spouse and aren’t subject to probate, are also generally protected. “Florida is one of the best debtor states in the country, if not the best,” says Evelyn W. Cloninger, partner in Cloninger & Files, an Oviedo law firm specializing in eldercare issues. “It sounds strange to say, but some people retire here specifically because the laws are so favorable regarding the estates of people who die while they’re residents.” To protect your wealth and well being, here’s a discussion of several essential estate-planning documents.

ADVANCE DIRECTIVE What would happen if you experienced a serious medical problem and couldn’t speak for yourself? Would anyone know your wishes regarding medical care, life support and other interventions? “In my opinion, if you’re going to have only one document, it should be an advance directive,” says Merrell Bailey, managing partner with Bailey Zobel Pilcher, an Orlando law firm specializing in estate planning. “It has the greatest capacity to improve your quality of life. I call it the momma document. The rest are baby documents.” Advance directives are legal documents designed to ensure that your wishes are carried out. There are two types of advance directives: the living will and the Designation of Health Care Surrogate form. In a living will, you specify how aggressively you wish to be treated if you’re suffering from a terminal condition in its end stages or have irreversible brain damage. High-profile cases such as those of Terri Schiavo and Karen Ann Quinlan – young women kept artificially alive as family members, healthcare providers, politicians and judges bitterly wrangled over their fate – demonstrate the value of living wills. It’s wise to make such arrangements at almost any age, says Cloninger, since disability or brain damage can occur unexpectedly as a result of a health problem or even a freak accident. “Doctors and nurses will tell you that a great percentage of their patients in the trauma center come from motorcycle accidents or men falling off ladders while trying to hang holiday lights on their homes,” says Cloninger. The living will and the Designation of Health Care Surrogate form are really two sides of the same coin. The living will is a document that outlines your wishes in advance. But a document can’t anticipate every eventuality. The surrogate form allows you to appoint another person to speak for you when you’re unable to speak for yourself. That person will make medical decisions on your behalf, consent to – or refuse – certain medical procedures, select physicians and advocate for you in healthcare matters. Cloninger advises her clients to provide a copy of the advance directive to a physician and a family member, along with instructions on how to locate the original. Most people, she says, choose spouses or other family members as their healthcare surrogates. “Clients often joke about whether the selected person will ‘pull the plug’ too quickly,” says Cloninger. “I assure them that the patient must be suffering from the end stages of a terminal illness, or be lacking in cognitive function with no reasonable medical probability of improvement, before the question of terminating life support even applies.” foreveryoungorlandomag.com

7FY_Jan12_Estate Planning.indd

Treating physicians are not going to approve disconnecting life-support systems unless the appropriate criteria are met. A bioethics committee and independent physicians must be consulted as well as family members. “I emphasize to clients that by making advance directives and living wills, they make their own decisions,” says Cloninger. “It prevents family disputes or spouses having to agonize over what’s right.” With an advance directive, it’s important that you specifically waive privacy and security rules outlined in The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Otherwise, hospitals and physicians aren’t authorized to share medical information with your surrogate

DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY Durable power of attorney designates someone you trust to take care of your business affairs. Such an agreement is entered into while you’re still competent and, unlike limited or general powers of attorney, remains in effect if you become incapacitated. A person with durable power of attorney is authorized to handle such matters as buying or selling property and investments, opening and closing bank accounts, filing lawsuits, paying bills, handling taxes and more. The recipient of the power of attorney – the person who is given the power to act on your behalf – is called the “attorneyin-fact,” or sometimes the “agent.” However, not all agents are attorneys-in-fact. You should grant durable power of attorney only to someone you trust implicitly, says Carla DeLoach-Bryant, a downtown Orlando attorney who specializes in estate and tax planning. Such authority can be abused – although wrongful use is actionable. “The No. 1 problem with any power-of-attorney arrangement is appointing the wrong person,” says DeLoach-Bryant. “If someone is disorganized and can’t pay their bills, then they’re not likely to do any better with your bills. If someone is a spendthrift, or has a spouse who’s a spendthrift, then you could have a problem. Someone who’s not honest won’t suddenly become honest when they have your power of attorney.” Making matters more complex, the state legislature recently expanded the rules regarding power-of-attorney arrangements. “A durable power of attorney used to be seven pages, and now it’s 44 pages,” notes Bailey. That’s because everything the attorney-in-fact is allowed to do must now be specifically enumerated. “Before, my power of attorney could just read, ‘I appoint my husband to do anything I could do,’” Bailey explains. “Now, it has to say, ‘I appoint my husband to do anything I could do, as long as it’s listed in this document.’” forever young

fyi / law Although power-of-attorney agreements drawn up under the old rules are still valid, Bailey says she’s encouraging her clients to have their existing documents updated.

LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT Unlike an advance directive and a power of attorney, which are implemented while a person is still alive, a will doesn’t go into effect until after death. A will is a written legal document that specifies how you want your assets to be distributed. It must be filed with the Florida Probate Court upon death, and the court then supervises the distribution of your assets.  Many people incorrectly believe that if their estate is modest and not  subject to estate taxes, there’s no need for probate. However, any estate in which assets must be distributed in accordance with a will is subject to probate, regardless of whether the estate is taxable. If you die without a will – the legal term is “intestate” – then the state determines, by statute, how your assets are divided and who your beneficiaries will be. The statutes are rigid, and no exceptions are made for unusual circumstances or exceptional needs.     “Your will speaks at death,” says Cloninger. “Your power of attorney speaks during your lifetime and is terminated by your death.” Preparing a will involves making a number of tough decisions. Who will be the heirs? How much should each receive? Should they receive it outright, or in trust? If in trust, what kind, and what are the tax implications? Who should be the trustee, and who are the successor beneficiaries if an heir dies?

REVOCABLE TRUST A revocable trust is a document created to manage your assets during your lifetime and distribute the remaining assets after your death. The person who creates a trust is called the “grantor,” or “settlor.” The person responsible for the management of the trust assets is the “trustee.” Assuming he or she is competent to do so, the grantor often also serves as the trustee. The trust is termed revocable since you may modify or terminate it during your lifetime, as long as you’re not incapacitated. The trust provides for a successor to take over when the original trustee becomes disabled, incapacitated or dies. The successor trustee – usually a spouse, child, friend, lawyer or professional trustee from a qualified financial institution – is authorized to continue managing your trust assets, paying your bills and making investment decisions. Upon your death, the trustee is responsible for paying all claims and taxes, and then distributing the assets to your ben10

eficiaries as described in the trust agreement. A well-crafted trust is comprehensive and lengthy, detailing powers of handling assets and affairs such as buying, selling, renting, leasing, suing, hiring or firing. Disgruntled family members can challenge a trust, but it isn’t easy, particularly if it has been operated effectively and efficiently over a number of years. A will, on the other hand, is usually first revealed to the family after a death – and those disappointed by its contents are more prone to mount legal challenges. “Your trust should be adjusted to reflect your situation in life,” says Cloninger. “For instance, at age 55, you may still have a young family. So your trust might focus on providing for your children’s education rather than setting them up as adults.” You might also specify a different arrangement for each beneficiary. One child might receive his or her share outright, for example, while another, who’s less settled and responsible, might have to wait several years. If you’re older, and your adult offspring are well established, you might consider naming a charity as a beneficiary.

REVISIT AND REVISE Making sure the proper documents are in place is a critical first step, but just as important is reviewing and updating those documents on a regular basis to adjust to changes in your life. Deaths, births, marriages, divorces, bankruptcy – any of these significant family and life events can have an impact on your estate and healthcare planning. For example, if you’re not careful, an estranged ex-spouse might end up with your worldly goods and decision-making powers over your healthcare. Bailey says that due to the poor economy, some estranged couples are now simply separating instead of divorcing. But if a separated spouse dies without having changed his or her will – or without a will at all – then assets are distributed as though the marriage were still intact. “This is happening lot these days,” she notes. You don’t have to be affluent to benefit from estate planning. Having proper documents in place before you need someone to look after your medical and financial needs will protect your interests in the ways you’ve specified – instead of leaving you in the care of someone you may not know or trust. n Editor’s Note: This story was intended to provide an overview of issues related to estate planning.

EXPANSION MEANS OPPORTUNITY AT POPULAR LAKESIDE COMMUNITY

W

inter Park Towers, a charming neighborhood in this lively jewel of a city, has long been one of Central Florida’s most desirable – and successful – active living communities. Residents occupy luxuriously appointed apartments, garden apartments or spacious single-family homes and villas in beautifully landscaped neighborhoods along the shores of sparkling Lake Berry. Because the 421-home community is virtually always at or near full occupancy, many on-the-go retirees have had to go on waiting lists and hope that a vacancy eventually occurs. Now, with a major expansion program under way, those who have coveted the Winter Park Towers lifestyle will have an opportunity to experience it – if they act quickly. Loch Berry, a new apartment complex, will add an additional 54 state-of-the-art, two-bedroom homes to the community’s offerings. A 383-vehicle parking garage is part of the $21 million-plus project, which will be complete by late 2012. Demand for the Loch Berry units is expected to be strong – and it’s easy to understand why. Winter Park Towers is known for its premier Florida lifestyle, offering such amenities as its own party boat exclusively for the use of residents and guests. The community offers

a full continuum of exciting on-campus activities that change from day to day. Better yet, Winter Park Towers is located in the region’s most charming and dynamic city. At the heart of Winter Park is Park Avenue, a European-style shopping and dining district encompassing some of the region’s most fashionable boutiques and popular restaurants. “The Avenue,” as locals call it, is also the scene of the annual Winter Park Sidewalk Festival, one of the most prestigious arts-oriented events in the Southeast. Winter Park has for years been the region’s cultural hub, with world-class galleries and museums as well as several popular theatrical troupes. Nearby Winter Park Village is packed with more restaurants, nightspots and movie theaters. Winter Park Towers also provides a full continuum of care. Once you qualify for continuing care residency, there’s a one-time entrance fee and a monthly service fee.

LIFESTYLE IS THE KEY TO HEALTH AND HAPPINESS AT DAVENPORT COMMUNITY

A

nyone over the age of 40 knows it intuitively: the most important keys to health, happiness and longevity can be found in one’s lifestyle. Fast and furious? That’s okay for cartoons, but for people, it’s regular exercise, good nutrition, security and lots of leisure. Del Webb Orlando has built an entire community around that premise – and to listen to residents, the company has surpassed even its own lofty goals. “I wouldn’t live anywhere else,” says prolific children’s book author Donna Morris, a resident at Del Webb Orlando since 2008. For Morris, and for most of the more than 200 residents at Del Webb Orlando in Davenport, the company’s 50-plus years of experience designing, building and managing active adult communities has paid off. “It’s one thing to plan the construction of nearly 900 homes on a plot of land,” says Sean Strickler, vice president of sales for Del Webb in the North Florida region. “But making a community come alive, so that it nurtures its residents –that takes a special talent,”. That point hits home for author Morris, who eight years ago suffered a tragic accident. While stoking a fire pit outside her Lake Wales home, she was suddenly engulfed in a fireball that burned more than half of her body. Today, Morris jokes about it. “I tell my friends it was a cheap way to get a chemical peel,” she laughs.

Pulte FY profile.indd 2 7FY_Jan12_Estate Planning.indd

Recreation and social activities are the forefront in all Del Webb communities.

Now fully recovered, Morris says she and her husband chose their Del Webb Orlando home because they found a sense of community there that surpassed anything they had seen elsewhere. “My husband feels that when he’s away, I’m taken care of by our incredible neighbors,” she notes. Earlier this year Del Webb Orlando unveiled its newest community amenity, the 30,800-square-foot Montecito Clubhouse, a happening place that hosts educational, recreational and entertainment programs and events. The 2011 season also saw the introduction of Del Webb’s Garden Series homes, a collection of five new floorplans priced from the $120s. Del Webb Orlando will soon host a grand opening event to premier its new model park, with five new model homes and a sales pavilion. The kickoff event will also introduce eight new Classic Series designs featuring larger rooms, gourmet kitchens and unique drop zones. Del Webb Orlando features world-class health and wellness amenities that are all part of the lifestyle – an endless array of activities, pastimes, hobbies and events are administered by a full time Lifestyle Director. So, visit today and love life to the fullest.

Not Shackled by Forgotten Words and Bonds by Randy Noles

Bolstered by family and fans, Glen Campbell fights Alzheimer’s with the power of music.

B

y the summer of 2011, it was apparent even from the cheap seats that something was wrong with Glen Campbell. His concerts had become erratic affairs, marked less by exquisite musicianship and more by forgotten lyrics and rambling banter. The Country Music Hall of Famer was, after all, 75 years old. But he still looked and sounded substantially like the boyish hit-maker who charmed late-1960s’ television audiences with his down-home humor and soaring voice. In early June, after Campbell performed at the Palladium near Indianapolis, a reviewer described the singer as “unprepared at best and disoriented at worst.” At the Grand Casino Mille Lacs near Minneapolis, another reviewer lamented Campbell’s use of Teleprompters and commented on his apparent inability to remember who had written his biggest-selling records, or in which key they were played. Perhaps, some whispered, he was drinking again. In 2003, he had been jailed in Phoenix after being convicted of drunk driving and leaving the scene of an accident. And in the early 1980s, cocaine use and a volatile romance with 21-year-old Tanya Tucker had made him a tabloid fixture. Or, as yet another reviewer opined, after 50 years on the road perhaps Glen Campbell just didn’t care anymore. But none of those explanations were true. In late June, Campbell and his wife of nearly 30 years, Kim Woolen, announced that the man whose music helped shape the soundtrack of the baby-boom generation was battling Alzheimer’s disease. The diagnosis had been delivered six months prior, following several years of short-term memory loss and occasional erratic behavior. Then, the pair sprung another surprise. foreveryoungorlandomag.com

Campbell was not quietly retiring; he was embarking on a worldwide Goodbye Tour. While the move was widely regarded as courageous, friends and fans nonetheless worried that the rigors of traveling and performing would exact a huge physical and emotional toll – and that the concerts would be more painful than poignant. But the skeptics hadn’t counted on Campbell’s indomitable spirit – and on the way in which music can resist, for a time at least, the memory-destroying progression of this incurable disease. “There is a true desire on their part to perform a public service,” Campbell’s doctor, Cedars-Sinai neurologist Hart Cohen, told the Los Angeles Times. “They want to make this condition something people aren’t embarrassed to talk about, by letting them know that even people of prominence are vulnerable. Then, hopefully, people who have it can get the medical attention and support they need. It’s not necessarily going to be of benefit to him, but it will benefit others.” nnn Although Alzheimer’s does severely affect memory and speech, there are studies hinting that people who cease to be intellectually active decline more quickly than those who remain engaged in life and in pursuing their passions. Music, in particular, clearly benefits Alzheimer’s patients, whether they’re musicians or not. Music therapy, in which patients listen to familiar songs, is known to have a calming effect, perhaps because the songs unlock pleasing memories and associations. Anecdotal evidence also suggests that playing a musical instrument somehow slows progression of the disease. Now there’s research indicating that songs, even unfamiliar ones, forever young 15

A HEALING MELODY

Here are a few very simple recommendations anyone can follow for using music therapeutically with loved ones suffering from Alzheimer’s: ■ Live music. Patients in the early stages of dementia may enjoy being taken to concerts. Also, you may consider inviting a musician or very small group of performers to your home. ■ Recorded music. Listening to recorded music is somewhat less engaging than listening to live music because, unlike live music, it doesn’t provide visual stimulation. It does, however, have the advantage of being available any time. ■ Singalong. In memory-care facilities, the most common type of musical activity is the singalong. For patients living at home, singalongs with family and friends can be fun and effective. ■ Individual patient performances. Because they require no musical talent or experience, drums, tambourines or other simple percussion instruments may be given to patients to play in addition to, or instead of, singing. Whether listening to live performances or recordings, choose whatever type of music the patient liked most before he or she contracted Alzheimer’s. So you might play Ella Fitzgerald for one patient and Bach for another. To avoid overstimulating or making the patient agitated, avoid loud, dissonant or frenetic-sounding music. Also be careful to avoid sad music that patients may connect to some specific event in their past.

“He’s from that school,” Raymond says. “It’s an unusual breed of people. They do their homework, they listen to the songs, they come into the studio, they get the job done.” While some of Campbell’s faculties are fading, his astonishing guitar prowess remains largely undiminished, as evidenced by his blazing guitar solo on “In My Arms.” “He did that solo on the third take,” recalls Raymond. “It was so fast and so amazing. Everybody in the studio was going, ‘Oh my God, did I just hear what I just heard?’ It’s ridiculously fast and it’s so good. He’s just that good. I don’t know what to say.” So far, Campbell is in good physical shape. The tour has moved back to the States for dates stretching, perhaps optimistically, well into 2012. Despite slightly slurred speech and difficulty with his memory, his mood remains tremendously upbeat. “He wakes up every day so happy,” says Kim, who now acts as her husband’s spokesperson since one-on-one interviews have become increasingly stressful. “I wish I were more like him.” FOREVERYOUNGORLANDOMAG.COM

Goodman, who has not studied Campbell’s case, speculates that his skills may be a combination of procedural memories – such as riding a bicycle – and deeply ingrained musical memories through which the ability to play, sing and interpret songs remains intact as a result of some yet-to-be-explained neurological process. “It’s impossible to say how long [Campbell] will be able to do this,” Goodman says. “The progression of Alzheimer’s isn’t linear. Eventually, of course, he’ll deteriorate to the point that his musical skills will also erode. But I can say that what he’s doing now will do him nothing but good in terms of dealing with the disease.” Although Campbell has some difficulty with spoken language, his music speaks for him. He closes each show with a new song, “A Better Place,” which packs all the emotional punch of Johnny Cash’s musical epitaph, “Hurt.” I’ve tried and I have failed, Lord, I’ve won and I have lost. I’ve lived and I have loved, Lord, Sometimes, at such a cost. Some days I’m so confused, Lord, My past gets in my way. I need the ones I love, Lord, More and more each day. One thing I know, The world’s been good to me. A better place, Awaits you’ll see. ■

The Wonder Years Here’s how, and where, baby boomers want to live.

T

hey’re savvy, they’re demanding and they account for

25 percent of the population. When you consider the impact that baby boomers have had on politics and pop culture, it comes as no surprise that they’re now helping to shape the future of homebuilding. More than 76 million baby boomers, defined as those born between 1946 and 1964, are retiring or quickly nearing retirement age. Because the youngest boomers turn 65 in 2029, their influence isn’t waning anytime soon. Whether they choose a smaller new home within an activeadult community, or to splurge and upsize with a luxurious estate home, this generation is definitely not headed to your grandparents’ retirement village. Homebuilders already knew boomers were smart and usually had cash on hand, even after the downturn. “A staggering amount,” says Rick Covell, president of Kolter Homes, who estimates that nearly 75 percent of boomers pay cash for their homes. “These people didn’t get in that position by being uninformed,” adds Covell, who has spent the last 15 years developing active-adult communities throughout Florida. So, not unexpectedly, boomers do their homework before making buying decisions. “When buyers come through the door, they know everything about the product,” Covell says. “In most cases they know more about the product than the salespeople. They’ve done their research.” Research has armed boomer buyers with the tools to demand more from builders – more options, more choices, more upgrades. According to the National Association of Home Builders, boomers have driven such trends as home offices, flex space, media centers, better lighting, bigger windows and aging-inplace features such as wider doors and hallways and first-floor bedrooms and bathrooms. Two developers, Kolter and Avatar Properties, lead the initiative to tap the baby boomer market locally. For more than 10 years, Avatar’s Solivita has defined the region’s active-adult lifestyle. The 4,300-acre master-planned community, located in Poinciana, has been named one of America’s best active-adult communities by Where to Retire magazine.

And “active” is what Solivita is all about. The community offers more than 120 clubs, ranging from scrapbooking to yoga to veteran’s affairs, along with two award-winning championship golf courses; 14 community pools; two state-of-the-art fitness centers; and a Tuscan-style village center with restaurants, an arts-and-crafts studio and a theater. Inside the gated community are a dozen distinct neighborhoods with homes offering an array of amenities and environmentally friendly features, including separate dens, large kitchens, swimming pools, outdoor living areas and dual master suites. Knowing that boomers appreciate flexibility and options, Solivita offers 19 floorplans ranging in size from 1,300 to 3,000 square feet. Prices start in the mid-$100s. “Boomers didn’t come from cookie-cutter homes, and they don’t want to retire in one either,” says Lauren Leetun, a spokesperson for the project. Solivita was named the world’s first “Younger Next Year” community for its focus on “turning the clock back.” The initiative, based on criteria from a popular 2005 wellness book of the same name, encourages residents to incorporate activity, community, healthy eating and physical fitness into their daily routines. A staff of fitness trainers, activity managers and chefs helps residents meet their wellness goals. In DeLand, Kolter is the developer behind Victoria Park, a 5,000-acre, master-planned development.  Kolter, which has built several 55-plus communities in South Florida, purchased the project from The St. Joe Company in late 2009.  Within Victoria Park lies Victoria Gardens, a gated activeadult community. Lead builder Shea Homes offers floorplans that feature plenty of natural light, large great rooms for entertaining and “smart spaces,” which are rooms that can be used for arts and crafts or a home office. Homes, ranging in size from 1,436 to 3,236 square feet, are priced from the mid-$100s to $289,990. The community offers a full array of activities, with a 2,500square-foot clubhouse, a pool, an arts-and-crafts room, a fitness facility, a media center and a ballroom with daily buffets and themed dinners. Project Manager Carol Duchscher says Victoria Gardens residents are very specific about the types of amenities they want. If something is missing, they aren’t shy about asking

It’s a takeoff of badminton and tennis.” Del Webb, part of the Pulte Homes family, has focused on retirement communities since 1960. Today the company boasts more than 50 projects in 20 states.

Homes range in size from 1,515 to 2,238 square feet and are priced from the $160s to the $250s. In Lake County, Shea and Lennar Homes have created their own activeadult communities. Shea offers Trilogy, a community in Groveland, which features a 57,000square-foot clubhouse, an indoor/outdoor pool, a restaurant and a fitness center. Single-family homes at Trilogy start at $124,900. In Clermont, Lennar has opened Heritage Hills, a community that takes advantage of the area’s rolling topography. A hilltop gazebo offers a spectacular view of the nightly fireworks show staged by Walt Disney World. There’s even an on-site vineyard with a Bordeaux room, a 21,000-square-foot clubhouse, a fitness center, a golf simulator, a craft studio, and a pool and spa. Mark Methany, president of Lennar’s Central Florida division, says the biggest draw for Heritage Hills buyers is the company’s villa product line – singlestory, detached homes with about 1,200 square feet. “They’re choosing smaller homes that they don’t have to spend as much time maintaining,� Methany says. “We’re seeing a lot of customers who like to upgrade their homes with granite and stainless steel, but smaller square footage is important.� Centerline Homes has found success with boomer buyers by focusing on three key areas: the home’s entertainment area, its master suite and the relationship of key spaces to the outdoors. “Each home includes a large kitchen that can accommodate several people,� says Deb Marton, vice president of sales.

Del Webb Orlando in Davenport offers lakeside walking trails and a new 30,800-square-foot clubhouse encompassing a state-of-the-art fitness center. Del Webb, a division of Pulte Homes, has a second active-adult community, Del Webb Stone Creek, in Ocala.

– so if they don’t offer it, buyers will find it someplace else. “Our approach to boomers is simple: to offer a variety of beautiful homes that are designed just for them, in prestigious communities that offer the amenities they want.” As more boomers settle into retirement, Covell predicts they’ll continue to demand more from builders as their needs change. “Boomers are shaping the industry because they’re buying now,” he says. “And because they’re buying, they’re causing builders to really, really listen to them and to build what they want.” n WINTER 2012

His even busier volunteer life includes serving as chairman of Habitat for Humanity’s Winter Park-Maitland chapter, membership on the advisory committee of the Independent Transportation Network-Orlando – “The biggest single challenge for older adults is transportation” – and helping Polly with her main passion, the Winter Park Library’s New Leaf Bookstore. Co-founded by Polly in 1995, it has raised more than $1 million for the public library.

Originally from: Berlin, Germany n Family: A Berlin resident at the end of World War II, Eve met and married Master Sergeant John L. Brinson, who remained on active duty until 1959. During his military career the couple – who never had children – were stationed in numerous spots in the United States and overseas, including Kentucky, Turkey, Mississippi, France and Guam. When he retired the couple moved to Orlando, where Eve has lived ever since. Widowed in 1985, she has two sisters, both of whom live in Germany. n Former career: In Orlando, Eve spent 17 years as a medical technologist at Sunland Center, the state facility that cared for the mentally and physically disabled. She also was a Red Cross swimming instructor. Before coming to Orlando, she did a 1½year stint as a grade-school teacher when she and her husband were stationed in Guam. n Current activities: Eve is an active volunteer at the 1st Unitarian Church of Orlando, working once or twice a week for its fundraising thrift store. She plays bridge at least twice a week, including hosting a weekly game at her lakefront home. She only recently retired from a 15year volunteer job as a guide at Leu Gardens. “The memory is still there, but it’s slow. Ask me the name of a flower and I know it, but it takes me 10 minutes to say it. As a guide that’s not very good.” n Words of wisdom: “Get off your butt. I’m so disgusted with older people who sit there and don’t do anything. Do crossword puzzles; play cards; join a book club. Join something – you have to have contact with other people.”

His wife of 62 years, Peggy, passed away two years ago. n Former career: A baseball star in high school and college, Charlie spent most of World War II in the Air Force as a physical-training instructor. After the war he spent a decade as a high school baseball and football coach and another two decades as a middle-school history teacher. When he retired from teaching in 1976, he weighed 226 pounds – 80 pounds more than he weighs now. He started jogging in 1978. n Current activities: Active in the Methodist Church, Charlie is best known as one of the world’s top age-group triathletes. His agegroup victories include winning the 70-and-over division at the 1992 Ironman World Championship Triathlon in Kona, Hawaii, and winning the 85-89 age group at the 2005 International Triathlon Union World Championship in Honolulu. Last summer in Clermont he became the oldest male competitor to finish a USAT-sanctioned duathlon, a race that starts with a 1-mile run, followed by a 10-mile bike portion and a finishing run of 3 miles. “I want to try to stay in top shape so I can continue to compete in triathlons and duathlons. I plan to keep competing as long as my body will let me.” n Words of Wisdom: “I’m 91, and people ask me, ‘Why do you punish your body?’ I tell them, ‘So I can become 92.’ I never say, ‘Take it easy’ to anybody; I think that’s what kills people. I say, ‘Step it up.’ When you’re over the hill, you pick up speed.”
