t’s not often you get an intimate glimpse into an iconic screen idol’s family life and get to know her on a personal level, but that’s exactly what we were treated to at the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation (NCHF) Golden Heart Luncheon. Through the eyes of her adoring husband, musician Josh Kelley, we peered into the soul of his famous wife, actress Katherine Heigl, as he gushed about their amazing love story and their three children. Fulfilling her lifelong dream of adoption, she recounted the day she first became a mother, her most cherished role to date, and the immediate, unconditional love she felt. This miracle baby had undergone heart surgery in her birthplace of South Korea before her adoption and is now a perfectly healthy 10-year-old. This success story is what NCHF lives for; it’s their global mission, and they proudly celebrate 15 years of providing world-class services to our community—they truly are healing hearts around the world.

Palm Beach native Kenny Haisfield reimagines his lifestyle brand, Kenny Flowers, to include women’s wear and bathing suits. rowing up, Kenny Haisfield became notorious for wearing his dad’s handme-down Hawaiian shirt, so much so that his friends called him out for donning the same “faded pink beauty” as he likes to call it. “I could never find any shirt anywhere that felt as good as that one did, and I realized there was a void in the market for nice, unique, modern-fitting men’s tropical shirts,” he recalls. So, Haisfield quit his job as a digital strategy consultant with IBM, booked a one-way ticket to Bali and started his clothing and lifestyle brand, Kenny Flowers. It’s been nearly four years since the brand took off, introducing shoppers to a twist on an old classic. “We’ve taken an iconic fashion item and gave it a better fit and a fresher design, stacking it with sharp details that help you stand out from the crowd and look stylish as well,” he says. They can be dressed up with a blazer or dressed down at a poolside cabana. Beyond shirts, Kenny Flowers has expanded to offer women’s wear, like sarongs in fun prints that can be turned into island kimonos. And the latest launch is the Watercolors swim line, created alongside Haisfield’s fiancé, Christina Vidal, who is a luxury travel blogger. The retro-inspired reversible one pieces feature low backs, breezy sides, a feminine scoop front and a high leg, and can even double as a bodysuit to take you from brunch to the beach. Styles range from animal and palm prints to ones with flamingos and toucans. And while Haisfield currently calls Bali home, he still manages to get back to South Florida at least once a year. “I was born in the Palm Beach area, so [I] still have strong family ties there,” he says. “There’s no better place in the world to throw on a Hawaiian shirt and soak up some sun than Palm Beach.”

Shop the new Kenny Flowers Watercolors collection at P.B. Girls Club in Palm Beach and kennyflowers.co.

Shop Tahitian pearl lariats and woven handbags

Mix and match stackable bracelets

Sea Lustre Shop a line of custom-made jewelry and home furnishings inside this Tequesta boutique By Melissa Puppo

L

ong strands of pearls take the places of envelopes and stamps inside a building that once served as the Tequesta Post Office. Some pearls are placed in-between knotted leather for necklaces, while others are strung alongside rose quartz to make bracelets for Sea Lustre Jewelry, a custom-made line designed by Brooke Hartman. In 2013, she launched the brand whose bread and butter are styles made with South Sea, Tahitian and freshwater pearls. Her brick-and-mortar studio opened in 2017, showcasing her full collection to locals.

DREAMY COLLECTIONS

AN EYE FOR DESIGN

INTRODUCING LIFESTYLE

Before starting her own company, the Jupiter native worked at Jupiter Jewelry and graduated from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). “The moment I was introduced to Tahitian pearls I became obsessed,” she says. “That’s where [Sea Lustre Jewelry] was born. They are rare—each one uniquely different—and I thought every woman needs to own at least one.” To start, Hartman designed pearl pieces that were sold inside Jupiter Jewelry—she still has a devoted display case there to this day. It didn’t take long before clients other than her family and friends began noticing the designs. She now sells to more than 100 retail locations nationwide and in destinations such as the Bahamas and the Caribbean.

Shoppers can browse jewelry styles like lariats and chokers to rings and stackable bracelets. Pearls are paired alongside leathers, precious stones and golds. While most pieces are made in-house, Hartman and her husband, Eric, travel abroad to Bali yearly to visit friends who assist with the jewelry making, including a special fine silver collection. “I bring all my pearls and my drawings, and we sit in the village and we go over them,” she says.

Hartman has since expanded her offerings to incorporate Sea Lustre Living, a line of women’s dresses, skirts and wrap tops in florals, polka dots and animal prints, in addition to accessories like woven handbags. Eye-catching home goods that capture the Balinese spirit round out the lifestyle brand. Natural elements come together in the form of teak wood tables; there are also rattan chairs, seashell chandeliers, life-size mirrors, elaborate dream catchers, light fixtures and colorful buffets made from recycled boat wood gathered in Indonesia. Sea Lustre is by appointment only, but eager shoppers can stop by during an open house typically offered Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

The Restaurant at the Norton West Palm Beach’s iconic museum welcomes a full-service kitchen alongside its $100 million renovation By Melissa Puppo

G

et ready to feast your eyes on not only exceptional artwork, but also masterpieces in the form of elevated modern-American fare at the Norton Museum of Art. Following a $100 million renovation completed in February, the West Palm Beach icon unveiled its new stand-alone dining venue, The Restaurant at the Norton, open for museumgoers and the public. The renowned Constellation Culinary Group, whose team is behind Verde at Pérez Art Museum in Miami, took the lead in creating a full-service kitchen with executive chef David Schiraldo at the helm. The 165-seat dining room is flanked by the Pamela and Robert B. Goergen Garden and features stunning details to match the museum’s aesthetic, such as floor-to-ceiling windows, mid-century modern decor and a video installation by Cleveland-based artist Gregory Scott.

FOOD AS ART After viewing Chinese and European artwork, order the Grilled Spanish Octopus that’s accompanied by oven roasted tomatoes, black olive crumble and saffron aioli atop a smooth white bean puree. Walt’s Tomato & Quinoa salad is presented with bright reds and yellows surrounding whipped burrata cheese, a sprinkling of pomegranate, hemp seeds and a drizzle of sherry vinaigrette. Large plates vary from Steak Frites

(tender grilled skirt steak, chimichurri aioli and fresh cut fries), to the Grilled Mahi Tacos (blackened mahi, fried avocado, lime cabbage and chili spice), to one of the tastiest salmon dishes you’ll have in town—the Miso Glazed Salmon, which includes a filet atop tosazu quinoa, pickled cucumber, edamame, nori ribbons, samba aioli toasted cashews and a sprinkle of cilantro. ALL IN THE DETAILS Dishes pair well with timeless cocktails. An aromatic concoction, the Lavender Collins blends gin, lemon juice, lavender syrup and sparkling water, and is garnished with a fresh lavender sprig. Don’t skip something sweet. “A lot of thought went into these desserts to match the design of the restaurant and the art, of course,” chef Schiraldo says. Grab two spoons for Hope’s Sundae, named after Hope Alswang, the museum’s former executive director and CEO, to sample vanilla bean ice cream, brownie bites, fresh marshmallow and warm chocolate ganache. Or, go for the Bananas Foster Milkshake, what Schiraldo calls “the showstopper.” It’s a nod to Norman Foster, the renowned architect behind the museum’s expansion, and is, according to Schiraldo, “the ultimate sweet ending to a delicious meal at The Restaurant.”

Turning A Page Kathie Lee Gifford on faith, film-making and what’s next after “Today.”
 By Reed Alexander

A

fter more than 25 years in morning television, Kathie Lee Gifford is about to embark on her most exhilarating journey yet. Although she signed off as a permanent co-host of NBC’s “Today” in April, the three-time Emmy Award-winner has no plans of hitting the snooze button. Instead, “it’s freeing me up to be the busiest I’ve ever been in my life,” Gifford says from her waterfront home in Greenwich, Connecticut, during a recent phone interview. “My husband has now passed, my parents have passed, my children are well on their way, established in their careers,” she says. “I’ve never been so free in my entire life as I am now.” Gifford’s plans involve a number of creative projects: Namely, a film shoot in Israel that marked her first time working as a director; a host of movies she’ll star in; an off-Broadway production that may even reach stages in Paris and Montreal. In a series of forthcoming screenplays she’s written, Gifford will star opposite longtime CBS late night host Craig Ferguson, whom she befriended in 2017 when he guest hosted on “Today” during

30

MAY/JUNE 2019

the fourth hour. “What I have cinematically with [Craig], I have never had in my life with anyone,” Gifford explains of the duo’s shared on-screen chemistry. “I would rather be, at a time when most people my age are getting in line with their senior discounts to go to the movies, the one making the movies for them to go see,” she adds with a note of humor in her voice. What’s more, she’s also been hard at work writing music with Grammy Awardwinning songwriter Brett James. They previously collaborated on “He Saw Jesus,” a 2017 tribute that Gifford sang in honor of her late husband, former New York Giant and NFL Hall of Famer Frank Gifford. Gifford’s jam-packed schedule is nothing unusual: She’s been moving at light speed for the past 35 years. In 1985, she rose to household prominence alongside Regis Philbin, with whom she hosted “Live with Regis and Kathie Lee” until 2000. In 2008, NBC named her co-anchor of the fourth hour of “Today” alongside Hoda Kotb. Gifford

initially thought she’d stay for a year. Eleven years later, she finally took her bow. “I will be closer to Hoda as the years go on,” Gifford says of the friendship she has forged with her longtime co-host. “I love [her] forever. She’s one of the most extraordinary people I’ve ever met.” In addition to her home outside of New York City, Gifford owns one in South Florida—a 11,400-square-foot beachfront house in Key Largo—and a property she recently purchased in Nashville, Tennessee; a city she calls “a little piece of heaven.” No matter the address, Gifford is dedicated to her peaceful, quiet mornings at home that start with prayer. She will continue the ritual of waking up daily around 2 a.m., even without the commute to shoot “Today” at the Rockefeller Center studios in Manhattan. Above all, Gifford makes clear, even after “Today,” her tomorrows are going to be fuller than ever. “I’m not saying goodbye,” she says. “I’m leaving a beautiful thing for a lifetime dream.”

Planning for a Successful Retirement

“Is it safe to retire or should I wait?” Industryrecognized Financial Advisors with Tiano, Armour & Smyth Wealth Managers at J.P. Morgan Securities share key ideas on achieving a successful retirement. You’ve worked hard to achieve a successful retirement. But when shifting from savings to spending, it’s critical to get the most out of your assets. It may seem overwhelming to calculate how much you’ll need to sustain yourself and your family through retirement, but smart planning will ensure that you meet your goals. Your respected advisor can help you plan for the retirement you want. Planning principles will help you calculate how lifestyle spending, educational expenses, healthcare needs and Social Security fit into your overall retirement picture. “When it comes to retirement, we consider your individual needs in the context of your entire balance sheet and long-term goals,” says Louise Armour. “Clients look to us for longterm advice on an array of wealth management and retirement income needs.” Plan for a long life. Living longer affects key retirement decisions, such as how to make the most of your time, how to invest, when to claim Social Security, and whether you may need longterm care. If you’re 65 and in good health, your retirement plan may need to account for 30 more

years of living expenses. Thus, your investments must grow long after you stop working to keep pace with inflation and reduce the risk of outliving your money. Start early, and save, save, save. Make savings a priority during your working years to achieve a successful retirement. A good goal is to save 10% of your gross annual income each and every year—twice the U.S. average annual savings rate. Optimize your savings by opening tax-advantaged accounts such as 401(k)s, IRAs and HSAs. If you’re a business owner, your advisor can explore with you the different types of plans that can be established to reap the benefits of saving. John Smyth says, “The earlier you start to save and invest, the more time your retirement assets will have to compound.” Adjust as circumstances change. Spending and investing in retirement are intertwined. Your advisor can help determine an appropriate level of spending and can structure your investment portfolio to achieve your goals. “Review your investments to ensure your portfolio balances the need for safety, growth and income in a way that suits you on both a practical and psychological basis,” advises Sal Tiano. Fit Social Security into the picture. Plan when to take Social Security based on factors such as life expectancy, marriage status, and

Promotion

whether you’re the primary wage earner in your family. If you’re married, delaying Social Security may help, particularly if you’re the primary wage earner of a couple, and your portfolio offers that flexibility. Calculate how much your investment portfolio will generate in the period between retiring and when you begin to claim Social Security. Work with the right advisor at the right time. Work with an advisor to achieve longterm financial success. “We offer our clients stability and commitment. When it comes to retirement, planning is the bedrock of success.” Sal Tiano, Louise Armour and John Smyth of Tiano, Armour & Smyth Wealth Managers at J.P. Morgan Securities collectively have 85-plus years of wealth management experience. The team is 13-members strong, each contributing unique expertise and forming a cohesive unit with the common goal of “client first.”

Genealogy Journey A writer poses the soliloquy: to spit or not to spit? Photos and words by A LY S S A M O R L A C C I

T

here were reasons to not spit in the plastic tube, send it through the mail and discover my ancestry. I’d flown to visit my parents for the holidays and discovered four rainbow-colored boxes stacked on their kitchen counter from 23andMe. Inside those boxes were slender vials awaiting our saliva. They would be shipped back to the company, which would tell us our family’s origins. The first reason to not spit was I’d be willingly giving up my DNA, which could be subpoenaed. I didn’t plan on committing any crimes, but I disliked no longer having the option. The second reason to not spit was more so the reason. Last summer, I traveled to Italy. I saw my relatives’ faces in the hook-nosed and dark-featured passersby. I felt a homecoming like never before during a visit to any foreign place. By taking the test, I could discover I was less Italian than I’d spent my life believing. This new awareness could be exciting. But just weeks after my grandmother’s death, I felt I’d prefer ignorance over discovering I was less like her than I’d always hoped to be.

hen my sister and I were tiny enough to pretzel our legs on kitchen table seats, my grandmother put Gloria Gaynor on a tiny CD player. We untwisted our limbs and popped like corn with our bare feet bouncing off of cheap linoleum floor tiles. My grandmother grabbed a spoon and used it as her microphone to sing “I Will Survive.” Soda fizzed from my nostrils from laughing so hard. My grandmother was quite the survivor. She was a single mother in the 1970s, working in a factory, and in her later years, at J.C. Penney Co. “It was awful,” she’d tell us. “Awful exciting.” She wasn’t negative or positive—she was both. Complaints or compliments always had cunning edges meant to make her audiences laugh. This was usually accomplished through the use of swear words. She attributed her vocabulary to years working in the factory. But she never used her words to express anger. She used them for comedic effect. My grandmother lived with her mother in a plantation-style, two-story home that had a sprawling wrap-around porch. The bathtub was nearly falling through the ceiling, and those linoleum

gulfstreammediagroup.com


kitchen floors peeled up during sticky summers. My grandmother’s brain began to go when her mother died at 95 years old. We moved my grandmother from their crumbling home, which was already too big for two people, to a one-story place she hated. It felt like her mental decline was a rebellion for what we’d done, moving her out of her house where she’d wave to the neighbors from the porch.

T

here were reasons to go to Italy that summer, but the most important one was the progression of my grandmother’s Alzheimer’s, which made the completion of this journey during her lifetime feel pressing. We arrived first in Rome. When we told our driver that our next destination was in the Abruzzo region—where our relatives were from—he made a fist with his hand and struck the top of his head. “Capotosto,” he said. “Land of hard heads.” We looked at one another, stunned, and then burst into laughter. My father’s grandmother was terribly stubborn. Her name was Teadora. She came overseas like many during the early 1900s. She was 9 years old, alone, arriving at Ellis Island with only a picture of her father in her pocket to help identify him. He had gone to America to find work before the rest of the family joined, so the story goes. Teadora didn’t talk much to me—or to anyone. Some of my only memories are of her barging into the bathroom on us mid-session. If she caught you with a toilet paper strand stretching the length of a happy birthday banner, she’d snatch it and rip off a square, scrolling the rest back onto the roll. One square per bathroom visit—that was the rule. I thought it was because they were poor, or incredibly frugal. They often fixed the car with duct tape; they preserved the couches by never taking the plastic covers off; and I once saw my grandmother take a stash of latex gloves from a hospital our relative was being treated at so she could use them to box-dye her jet-black hair. So, I didn’t think to Google an image of Castel di Sangro, a four-hour train ride east of Rome, before arriving. I figured the town would be small and remote, as it is. But I did not think it would be carved into a mountainside; peppered with red flowers in pots on wiry balconies; navigable by cobblestone streets; parallel to a river; and

gulfstreammediagroup.com

topped with a century-old church that rings its beautiful bell from a tower at 6 p.m. daily. My family ran around town like kids on a scavenger hunt, looking for clues that would hint at who Teadora was, and in turn, who we are. We stopped in a gallery showing art from the era when she lived there. We searched the paintings for her face, only to realize we didn’t know her face—the face she had when she was young. Her trace seemed to be lost with time.

piphanies often happen in bathrooms as water pellets strike the day off of skin— the mind wandering, then back in the shower, as it’s come up with a wonderful idea, or conclusion, or discovery. Mine was a discovery; only it wasn’t reached by deep thought, or in the shower. I was instead poised on porcelain, staring at a wall the color of a green Smartie after it’d been sucked on for some time. It was attached to a quaint hotel room decorated with floral bedspreads and curtains done in the same shade. I reached for a strand of toilet tissue. Only, there wasn’t a roll to be found. There was just a dispensary, which allotted one paper square. It was as if she’d barged in on me again. “One sheet.”

W

hen the test results from 23andMe entered my email inbox on a Wednesday morning, I didn’t open it. I didn’t open it the

next day, or the next, either. I finally queued up the message while I was on a train in New York City and showed my percentages to a stranger sitting next to me. Seeing how little he cared brought me comfort. But I’ll share the results with you now, since you’ve stuck out this entire story. According to the data collector, I am 38 percent Italian. That’s 12 percent less than what I told my classmates in elementary school. That’s—weirdly—5 percent less than my sister’s results. And that’s 62 percent less than what my last name, Morlacci, suggests. But I think about that square of paper often, and how my great grandmother carried that policy through her life, regardless of her address. I think about my grandmother and her swear words, and her attempts to still make me laugh even at the end of her life when she didn’t know me anymore. Our habits, our quirks, our behaviors— and most importantly, our people—those are what make us who we are. Not a silly pie chart procured from a plastic tube of spit.

Start your own ancestry adventure Genetic testing kits like 23andMe, MyHeritage DNA and AncestryDNA ran massive sales during the holidays, so it’s likely by now you or someone you know has participated. But that’s only the beginning. Now that the results are in, embark on a discovery of your past. 1. Connect with family members. The testing kits’ online resources gather regions of the world your bloodline traces back to—and it links you to family members far beyond first, second and third cousins. Reach out, have conversations and puzzle together family stories and timelines. Perhaps even plan a visit. 2. Take a tour led by experts. Once you have a solid idea of the regions and cities your ancestors originate from, plan a trip through tailored tour programs by providers like Go Ahead Tours via Ancestry. Included in the package is a DNA kit—in case you’re late to the game—a pre-trip family history review and the pairing of an ancestry genealogist who joins the tour to provide insight and answer questions as you embark on your trip to Ireland, Germany, Scotland and more. 3. DIY. Skip the research, the connections, the tour guides and just go.

Matters of the Heart Power couple Katherine Heigl and Josh Kelley help the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation raise more than $500,000 at the 2019 Golden Heart Luncheon. By Amy Woods | Photography by Ian Jacob

E

very one of the 350-plus place settings at The Country Club at Mirasol during this year’s Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation Golden Heart Luncheon featured a walnut wrapped in a gift bag. The odd party favor drew much discussion. Then, a video aired. It told the tale of a premature baby in Puerto Rico who needed life-saving surgery in the throes of Hurricane Maria. The 4.5-pound infant had an abnormal connection between his right ventricle and his pulmonary artery, and the defect impeded blood flow to his lungs. Without an operation, he was going to die. The Nicklaus Children’s Hospital LifeFlight program transported little Liam to Miami, where Dr. Kristine Guleserian, a pediatric cardiovascular surgeon, reconstructed his heart three-dimensionally and printed out a model. It was the size of a walnut. The surgery was successful, and Liam soon will celebrate his second birthday in his family’s rebuilt home. “We live for those success stories,” says foundation chairwoman Barbara Nicklaus, wife of legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, to the crowd gathered for the fundraiser. “And challenges like Liam push us to our goal of being a global hospital.” Pediatric patients from 119 countries and all 50 states have passed through the doors of the flagship facility to receive first-class critical care. “We’re reaching our goal that way,” Nicklaus says.

gulfstreammediagroup.com

“We’ve come a long way from the sleepy little foundation we founded in 2004.” Prior to introducing the luncheon’s keynote speaker, Emmy Award-winning actress Katherine Heigl, the beloved philanthropist highlighted the hospital milestones made possible by proceeds from the annual affair. First, pediatric heart transplants will be performed on-site in six operating rooms to be constructed this fall. “It’s very exciting,” Nicklaus says. “It’s just great for parents.” Second, pregnant mothers with complications will be able to give birth in one of 10 designated suites. “So this puts the mother and baby in the same hospital and eliminates them being separated when, oftentimes, the baby has to be flown to another facility,” Nicklaus says. “We’re thrilled that we got that through in Tallahassee.” In addition, Nicklaus Children’s Hospital has opened 14 outpatient centers across South Florida, including one at Legacy Place in Palm Beach Gardens equipped with 17 subspecialists practicing everything from cardiology to nephrology. With the foundation approaching its 15th anniversary, the other achievements are too innumerable to list. “The foundation has just exploded,” Nicklaus says. “When something happens it’s, ‘Oh, my gosh, how did that ever come about?’ It sort of goes back to we want to be where the children are, and we feel so blessed.”

THE DRUG DIGGING HOLES OPIOIDS, AND THE WORST DRUG CRISIS IN AMERICAN HISTORY By Ben Wolford | Photography by Austen Amacker

ric Purcell promised his mother he would never overdose. “And if I do,” he told her, “it wouldn’t be intentional.” Vida Hamilton knew her son was in a bad place: fired from a teaching job he loved, living with his parents in Boca, $20 in his bank account, and addicted to painkillers ever since a car wreck knotted his back. A week shy of his 36th birthday, this was not the life he imagined. He was the honor student, the Summa Cum Laude at Eastern Michigan, the teacher kids admired. Now, he took Xanax for depression and anxiety. Over the years, he developed a tolerance to the drugs and they didn’t work properly anymore, but stopping was worse. “Mom, sometimes you just want to escape from reality,” he told her. On March 20, 2017, Purcell came home from a friend’s house and went to his room. He needed to get some sleep because he had a job interview at a restaurant the next day. He lay in bed playing golf on his phone. Around 11:30 p.m., his mother stopped by to say good night. “Good night, mom,” he said, “love you.”

he opioid epidemic began with a press release. “The fear of addiction is exaggerated,” Purdue Pharma said in 1996 when it released OxyContin. The lie worked. Doctors wrote millions of prescriptions. Purdue made billions of dollars. Other opioid manufacturers, such as Endo (maker of Percocet) and Johnson & Johnson (which sells fentanyl patches under the name Duragesic), followed Purdue’s lead. Together, they funded propaganda groups like the American Pain Foundation, which promoted doublespeak inventions, like “pseudoaddiction,” with no basis in science. Pharmacies dispensed so many pills that former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi sued Walgreens and CVS last year for bloating supply and demand. For instance, she wrote, the Walgreens distribution center in Jupiter shipped a small Florida town 285,800 orders of oxycodone in a single month—95 for every man, woman and child. We are now 400,000 opioid-related deaths into the worst drug crisis in American history. In Florida, 20 people died from opioids on any given day in 2017, according to medical examiners’ offices. South Florida is the epicenter. In the Fort Pierce region, which includes Martin County, 239 people died of opioid overdoses in 2017. In Palm Beach County, 1,285 died. In Broward County, 984 died. That’s more deaths in our corner of Florida than in all of America in 1988 from cocaine. That’s despite jail time for pill mill doctors, crackdowns on pharmacies and lawsuits against pharma companies.

Doctors at Broward Health are on the front line. “It’s just exponentially getting worse,” says Dr. Sandeep Mendiratta, a psychiatrist who treats addicts. “This problem is pretty much getting out of control with the staggering number of people affected.” His colleague Dr. Parham Eftekhari, a nephrologist, says the spike in fatalities is because of clandestine synthetics that are 10,000 times stronger than morphine. Fentanyl and analogs like carfentanil, an elephant tranquilizer, are so powerful a pinch can kill you. “We’re getting the hulk effect,” Eftekhari says. “We’re getting patients just coming dead to the emergency room. Patients who got the wrong batch from the dealer. There’s no way of telling what’s in that drug.”

urcell was a three-sport athlete from the Detroit suburbs who loved Michigan football and theater. His little sister was too shy to blow out her birthday candles, but Purcell was the opposite: dancer, actor, wedding toaster. Purcell stayed close to home for college, where he studied theater and English and earned a certificate in education. That led to a job at the Ann Arbor Public Schools. His job title was English teacher, but that didn’t stop him from starting a middle school drama club, running theater workshops and advising the yearbook. “He was somebody I could always rely on and I could come to whenever I was having a bad day,” a student says.

In a church community room in West Boca, 23 people gathered to talk about loved ones who’ve died from overdosing.

To ward off acute pain following rotator cuff surgery, patients typically take upward of 80 opioid tablets. Caldwell developed a way to treat pain that requires almost no post-op opioids, if any. Thirty-nine percent of his patients take only ibuprofen, and 90 percent take 10 opioid tablets or less. “We’re talking about an eight-fold reduction from the literature,” he says. His technique, which he describes in a forthcoming article in the HSS Journal, involves injecting a group of shoulder nerves with an anesthetic before stitching the patient back up. “Pain is like a brush fire,” he says. “If you put it out quickly, the smoldering and expansion doesn’t continue.” Farther up the coast, a state lawmaker is working on other kinds of solutions. One of these is HB 3397, which would allocate $250,000 to the Cleveland Clinic to produce sciencebacked educational materials for Florida physicians—a fitting bookend to Purdue’s propaganda. State Rep. Toby Overdorf, a Stuart Republican, sponsored that bill, which went before the Legislature in March. He plans to submit additional opioid-related reforms, particularly related to rehab facilities. He said profit-hungry providers are bunking recovering addicts four to a room, overbilling their insurers for urine tests and converting residential zones of Martin

County into dense medical districts. “I’m not faulting the patients in this,” he says. “I applaud them for getting help. It’s the providers who are taking advantage of them.” Perhaps the most optimistic—and futuristic—work on addiction is coming out of The Scripps Research Institute in Jupiter, where Dr. Courtney Miller may have discovered a way to instantly wipe relapse-triggering memories from meth addicts’ brains. It sounds like sci-fi magic, but it’s just biochemistry. There are certain proteins that help you create new memories. By inhibiting those proteins while they’re still active between neurons, you can disrupt the memory. Testing methamphetamine-addicted mice in 2014, she found something peculiar. The proteins stay active in the brain’s emotional memory center for weeks after using meth. When she gave the mice a drug to target the protein, they no longer had any interest in meth. The treatment appears extremely targeted, affecting only meth memories. “What I think it’s probably doing is removing the motivational component,” she says. Miller speculates that if she were to apply this treatment to a human, they would still remember using meth but not the pleasure reward it gave them.

“Every meeting brings me right back to the beginning, the feelings I had after finding my brother dead in his bed, the gut-wrenching crying and desperation and helplessness.” - Melissa Friedman

The implications—a possible cure for addiction and even post-traumatic stress disorder—earned her rare funding from the National Institutes of Health. Over the next year and a half, Miller will be conducting safety tests and prepping for phase one human trials. The big unknown is whether a similar treatment could work for opioids and other addictive substances. She’s applying for grants to study that question. “We have an idea, but it’s still early,” she says. “I think it’s going to work.”

THE STEM CELL ENIGMA

WHILE AN INDUSTRY AROUND STEM CELL TREATMENTS POPS UP IN SOUTH FLORIDA, QUESTIONS REMAIN ABOUT PROMISES OF MIRACLE CURES FOR EVERYTHING FROM HEADACHES TO OLD AGE. By Eric Barton

t wasn’t just that William Caulkins could barely walk, it was that he could barely do anything. Waking up in the morning, getting up out of a chair, doing absolutely anything for himself became a struggle to just merely catch a breath. At 67 years old, Caulkins figured his chronic lung disease was days away from killing him. Soon, he’d attempt to take in a breath and no air would come, ever again. A year into doctor’s visits and bleaker and bleaker prognoses, a friend told Caulkins about something totally, absolutely risky. He signed up that day. “That was my last chance. That’s it. I was hospitalized four times in six months, and I knew that was going to be it,” Caulkins says. Caulkins’ wife drove him all day from their home in Nassau County, north of Jacksonville. When they arrived at a stem cell clinic in Broward County, Caulkins could barely make it to the door, his oxygen tank dragging behind him. At U.S. Stem Cell Clinic, they inserted a needle into Caulkins’ fat cells. They extracted stem cells, treated them and then inserted them back into his body. He noticed the difference almost right away, during the long drive home. By the next morning, he was taking deep, life-changing breaths,

for the first time in months. Days later, he gave up the oxygen tank. He could walk again, he could complete a sentence without getting winded in the middle, and it seemed like he had been given life. “I took a chance, and it worked. I was amazed,” Caulkins says. It would be nice if we could say the experience Caulkins had

with stem cells is shared by all of the patients at South Florida’s stem cell clinics. But the largely unregulated and mostly untested field of treating patients with stem cells has vastly varying results, with lawsuits and threats from government regulators to shut the entire industry down. Meanwhile, South Florida has perhaps more stem cell clinics than any other region in the nation— a cottage industry built on promises of cures to everything from chronic pain to eye disease. And yet, despite a government crackdown and lawsuits against stem cell clinics, there are countless tales of the kind of success Caulkins had. Study after study has backed up some of the claims about stem cells. For patients suffering from diseases and injuries that haven’t been cured by other means, many say it’s worth taking the risk on stem cells. While stem cells have become widely known in the past decade, their discovery dates back to 1908, when a Russian histologist discovered a cell that seemed be the precursor to every other cell. Think of stem cells like the simple two-by-four framing

of a home—before adding the rest of the construction materials, the house could become craftsman or Victorian or a thousand other styles. Similarly, the body can convert stem cells into multiple types of cells, growing tissue and repairing damaged areas of the body. Doctors for the past half-century have been injecting patients with stem cells to try to treat diseases. Clinics across South Florida make wideranging claims about how stem cells can be used, including for treatments for Alzheimer’s and multiple sclerosis. The treatments aren’t covered by insurance, and so patients are asked to shell out thousands out of pocket for the injections. Like most of the websites for stem cell clinics, the page for Back in Action Medical Center in Stuart, for instance, says the clinic offers “innovative stem cell injection therapy” to help with knee pain, arthritis, tissue regrowth, degenerative disc disease, headaches and others. Michelle Parlo, a physician assistant and clinic director at U.S. Stem Cell, says her clinic has treated thousands of patients since it began in 2001. It now has three locations, in Weston, The Villages and West Palm Beach. “We treat anything and everything,” she says. Since she started at the clinic in 2014, she says she has watched patients who could barely walk when they came in jaunt their way out the front door afterward. Parlo claims her clinic has conducted studies that show their treatments are often 99 percent effective. Like most of the South Florida stem cell clinics, U.S. Stem Cell uses a procedure where they remove stem cells from fat cells and then “separate them from toxins,” Parlo says. When inserted back in the body, she says the stem

cells can regrow tissue, replace diseased cells and cure people of potentially fatal diseases. “These are your cells, in your body, doing exactly what they’re supposed to do,” Parlo says. In April 2017, investigators from the Food and Drug Administration began a monthlong investigation into U.S. Stem Cell’s work. They determined the clinic’s stem cell procedure wasn’t allowed under federal law, because injecting the harvested stem cells back into someone constituted a drug that would need FDA approval. The FDA claims its investigation found records of multiple adverse effects from the treatments. Among them was a patient who was treated on June 16, 2016, for macular degeneration and later had to be taken to the emergency room, where it was discovered she was suffering hemorrhages and ocular hypertension. The FDA says it found records of two other patients treated for macular degeneration who then suffered complete vision loss.

n November 2017, the FDA issued guidelines asserting its authority over stem cell clinics and threatened a wide crackdown. The FDA also sent a warning letter to U.S. Stem Cell asking the clinic to cease treatments. When the letter was ignored, the U.S. Attorney’s Office filed a lawsuit in May 2018 that seeks to have a federal judge shut down the practice. The U.S. Attorney’s Office declined to comment on the lawsuit, but the complaint states: “There are not now, nor have there ever been any approved new drug application” to cover stem cell treatments. The lawsuit names only U.S. Stem Cell and its owners, but it indicates a wider shot across the bow against South Florida’s stem cell industry. More than 100 clinics now operate in Florida, most of them based between Miami and Stuart. If a judge were to rule against U.S. Stem Cell, many of them would likely shutter or face similar government lawsuits. But Parlo says her clinic has no intention of backing down and will fight the lawsuit and the clinic’s right to continue. She says injecting someone with their own stem cells shouldn’t be defined as a drug treatment. Taking other tissue from the body, like in a skin graft, isn’t regulated by the FDA, and so neither should stem cells, she says. “God forbid the FDA shuts us down, because I could never go back to practicing traditional medicine,” Parlo says. “In the future, physicians should be trained in this.” As of now, stem cell treatments aren’t covered at medical school and are rarely discussed in traditional doctor’s offices, she says. That could change if Dr. Donald Phinney is able to finish his work at the Scripps Research Institute in

Jupiter. In August, Phinney won a $2.9 million grant to develop a method that could perfect stem cell treatments and help define exactly what kind of diseases can be cured with stem cells. Phinney says his work shows that not all stem cells are equal. Extract them from one part of the body or another and you’re likely to get entirely different properties that allow the stem cells to do different things. Some stem cells from certain parts of the body are effective as immunosuppressants, which could help transplant patients from rejecting new organs. Others are better at stopping inflammation, which could help treat arthritis and lupus. Take stem cells from the right part of the body and they may help people with non-healing wounds, especially for those suffering from Crohn’s disease. Coming up with a series of metrics to determine how and where stem cells should be harvested is the first step in Phinney’s research. Trials of the metrics then may determine which stem cells are effective in treating certain diseases. As of now, most stem cells are harvested with little regard for how effective they will be with certain diseases. “In most manufacturing processes, the goal is to make lots of stem cells, but we need to be more selective,” Phinney says. He’s far from alone in researching ways to improve stem cell treatments. Dr. Marilyn K. Glassberg, professor of medicine, surgery and pediatrics at the University of Miami, has published results of a study in which she was Photo by Scott Wiseman

Those types of cautionary tales are not rare. Jeannine Mallard in June 2018 told CBS 4 Miami that she flew from her home in France to South Florida in 2015 for a series of stem cell treatments at the Hollywood Eye Institute in Cooper City. Afterward, Mallard says her eye began to swell and then shrink, and since then, not only has she lost vision, but her eye has become shrunken and deformed. The Hollywood Eye Institute did not return phone messages seeking a response.

able to use stem cells to treat patients suffering from lung disease, a finding so significant that she presented her findings in July 2018 at the Vatican during an international health conference. Dr. Joshua Hare, director of the University of Miami’s Interdisciplinary Stem Cell Institute, announced in October 2017 that his team had found what may be a stem cell treatment for frailty, which causes some older people to become weak. In a clinical trial, elderly patients treated with stem cells could walk longer distances and breathe easier after a single dose of stem cells. Their work could influence the stem cell industry in South Florida, perhaps improving the way stem cells are harvested and narrowing the promises made about cures. Until then, Parlo says stem cell clinics should continue to treat patients and ignore the government’s

attempts to shut them down. Asked about the lawsuit her clinic faces, Parlo says: “It’s ridiculous, it’s immoral and there’s no constitutional reason they’re doing this.” In March, the FDA’s lawsuit was headed for courtordered mediation, but Parlo says her clinic wouldn’t be willing to accept any settlement that would forbid them from continuing their work. As the lawsuit played out, Caulkins says he will be heading back to U.S. Stem Cell for his second and perhaps final treatment. He has been telling friends about it and at least a couple are planning to try it themselves. Spending the $6,000 on the treatment isn’t easy for Caulkins, a retired surveyor, but he says the treatment may have saved his life. “Nobody told me to say this,” Caulkins says. “I’m speaking for me, not anybody else.”

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT GENETIC COUNSELING Amy Byer Shainman is a patient advocate who provides support and education surrounding BRCA and other hereditary cancer syndromes. She serves as a digital ambassador for the National Society of Genetic Counselors (nsgc.org). Her experience as a BRCA1 gene mutation carrier is chronicled in her recently released memoir “Resurrection Lily: The BRCA Gene, Hereditary Cancer & Lifesaving Whispers from the Grandmother I Never Knew.” She resides in Jupiter with her family.

I

spend much of my time explaining the difference between genetic testing and genetic counseling, and why it’s in the best interest of an individual’s health to undergo certified genetic counseling both before and after any type of genetic testing. While genetic testing involves analyzing a person’s DNA, usually by blood sample or saliva, genetic counseling is a conversation. A certified genetic counselor has the skill-set and advanced training in medical genetics and counseling to listen to, guide and support patients. A certified genetic counselor is the most qualified person to assess your risk for inherited diseases or conditions, such as cancer risk, to order the correct genetic testing panels (if any), and to interpret those genetic testing results (positive or negative) and what those results may mean for you and your family. They can also help navigate your questions and concerns about medical insurance, are familiar with trustworthy labs for genetic testing and will help you determine if genetic testing is right for you or not. As the genetics landscape is rapidly changing, with new genes discovered daily, certified genetic counselors are the most familiar and up-to-date with this constantly developing scenario, which is why the insight and navigation provided by them is such a vital resource. You can speak to a certified genetic counselor in person or by phone. Find one through the National Society of Genetic Counselors (findageneticcounselor.com) or call 312.321.6834.

FOOD FOR HEALING Interview by Alyssa Morlacci

M

argaret Duriez was born in West Palm Beach and grew up in Florida and on a family farm in Pennsylvania. After graduating from college, she became increasingly interested in organic food and sustainable living. Margaret and her husband, Franck, are vegetarian as are their four children. Lox Farm started as a place to grow food for their family. Two years later, Margaret and the Lox Farms team started selling fresh local produce to the community and providing education about sustainable farming.

James Edward Vanek, M.D. 1411 N. Flagler Drive, Ste. 4500 West Palm Beach, FL 33401-3410 Primary Hospital: Good Samaritan Medical Center - West Palm Beach 561.659.5154 Concierge Medicine Eric J. Weiner, M.D. Medical Specialists of the Palm Beaches 3199 Lake Worth Road, Ste. B2 Lake Worth, FL 33461-3652 Primary Hospital: JFK Medical Center - Atlantis 561.964.3440

What is the Fresh Rx initiative?

We at Lox Farms maintain the belief that food can play an essential role in treating disease, which is why we decided to start Fresh Rx, a partnership with Community Foundation for Palm Beach and Martin Counties that will fill prescriptions of fresh produce free of charge. Each weekly Fresh Rx delivery will contain a salad mix, nutrient-dense microgreens harvested as shoots, and a variety of vegetables, which will support patients in making a shift toward a plant-based diet while eliminating the financial burden on patient’s loved ones. The program is expected to launch this fall. Who are the patients who will benefit?

Fresh Rx will initially serve oncology, cardiac and pediatric patients at Jupiter Medical Center whose doctors have advised them to change their diets as part of a comprehensive treatment plan. Once launched, we hope to eventually expand Fresh Rx to other departments. What is your personal food philosophy?

A guiding principle that I follow as it relates to diet is that food should be both wholesome, plant-based and grown in a sustainable manner without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers. Foods that are unrefined, unprocessed and derived from plants have an array of healing properties and can also assist in preventing disease. What is the connection between food and health?

As an organic practices farm, we can have a positive impact on both the

environment and our health. Transitioning to a plant-based diet is known to improve cellular function, improve your immune system and reduce cholesterol among other benefits. Lox Farms is certified naturally grown and has chosen to grow directly in the soil without synthetic fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides, ensuring our customers receive produce that is nutrient dense and free from dangerous chemicals that can wreak havoc on the body. What is a tip for trying to eat totally organic?

Shop local. Green markets are a great way to save on the cost of organic produce and reduce the number of miles your food travels, thus the carbon footprint of the meals you prepare. Lox Farms produce can be purchased at several green market locations around South Florida, including the Downtown West Palm Beach Green Market, Delray Beach Green Market and The Gardens Green Market.

The following “Top Doctors� have been recognized by Castle Connolly, Inc. and are a prestigious group of practitioners in the area. Their expertise will assist you in making informed healthcare decisions for you and your loved ones.


David Weisman, M.D., F.H.R.S.

Cardiac Electrophysiology Top Doctor ‘17, ‘18, ‘19

David Weisman, M.D., F.H.R.S., is a highly experienced boardcertified cardiac electrophysiologist in Palm Beach County. As an electrician of the heart, he focuses on heart rhythm disorders including atrial fibrillation (AFib) among others. Dr Weisman graduated medical school from the prestigious Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, NY. Dr. Weisman’s expertise includes device implantation including traditional and leadless pacemakers, loop recorders, cardiac defibrillators and biventricular devices. Additionally, he is skilled in performing laser lead extraction, a procedure to permanently remove implanted devices of the heart. He is dedicated to patient care and has developed his own protocols for performing cardiac ablation which is a minimally invasive procedure that treats arrhythmias, or heart rhythm disorders. Specifically, Dr. Weisman is passionate about performing ablations with no fluoroscopy (X-ray). He feels it is of the utmost importance to limit radiation exposure during these cardiac procedures, which is why he has made this unique protocol the cornerstone of his practice. Dr. Weisman became the first in the state of Florida to perform visually guided laser balloon ablation to treat atrial fibrillation and is also trained in performing WATCHMAN™ procedures for patients with atrial fibrillation who cannot take blood thinners. Dr. Weisman has been published in multiple journals, performs research and has been featured on local television, newspaper and the radio for his work with cardiac ablation and the treatment of heart disease. He has offices in Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach and Delray Beach.

ADVICE FOR PATIENTS

BOARD CERTIFICATIONS

The heart is only one organ in our body and treating it without taking care of the whole would be unfair. It’s important to remember that so many things influence heart health, some of which are in our control. Healthy living can go a long way to a better longer life.

ADVICE FOR PATIENTS The key to good health is to practice preventative medicine. This means maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen. When confronted with medical problems, particularly orthopedic ailments, it is also vitally important to have a physician that is knowledgeable and with whom a patient feels comfortable communicating with. These are the keystones to preserving pain free function which is in essence what determines one’s quality of life.

Mark Pinsky, M.D.

Plastic Surgery

Top Doctor since 1999 While cosmetic procedures may have the same name, the quality of results can vary dramatically. With Dr. Mark Pinsky, you will see how the combination of experience, judgment and artistry make all the difference. Dr. Pinsky has built an international reputation as one of the elite contributors to his specialty in both surgical and non-surgical procedures. He is considered a leader as a surgeon and participant in ground breaking clinical studies, development of innovative techniques, and published articles in peer reviewed journals. His knowledge and skill in the areas of breast surgery are renowned. But his gentle touch on local faces is mostly a secret in our small community. Look for a refreshed, “you-but-better” look... where nothing is pulled or stretched... and if you can’t see any scars it’s probably a Pinsky Profile. He has also been the long time “mommy’s-choice” for women wanting to rediscover the figure they thought was lost forever.. Voted Best Plastic Surgeon in Palm Beach County, Dr. Pinsky has built a reputation for refined artistry, depth and breadth of skill, and naturally beautiful results for face, breast and body. Patients from around the world visit Palm Beach Gardens to see Dr. Pinsky seeking his expertise to achieve their specialized outcome.

Robin A. Sykes, M.D.

Plastic Surgery

Top Doctor ‘13, ‘14, ‘15, ‘16, ‘17, ‘18, ‘19 While it’s true that beauty comes from within, today we have so many safe and effective ways to enhance it! Doctors can “turn back the clock” a bit, and minimize those age- and lifestyle-related changes many of us see in our faces and bodies. We can treat sundamaged skin and skin cancer. And yes, improving our external appearance can really make a difference in our lives. Artistic use of materials and techniques is the hallmark of a good plastic surgeon. Dr. Sykes is an artist in more ways than one. She has dedicated herself to techniques, products and technologies that are proven and trustworthy. Products, surgical instruments and devices such as lasers, radiofrequency devices, ultrasonic and EM wave generators and more are only tools which must be used with experience and knowledge. Only then can the patients’ results be expected to be reliable and natural. Dr. Sykes performs both reconstructive and esthetic plastic surgeries, in addition to nonsurgical procedures for the face and body. Patients crave a friendly office, knowledgeable staff and a caring atmosphere. Her support staff are professional and caring, striving to be both helpful and thorough. Esthetician treatments help to round out the services available and are greatly appreciated by patients. The goal of the entire staff is to treat each patient as the unique individual that they are, and to provide the best outcome possible.

Donna Pinelli, M.D., F.A.C.O.G.

Gynecologic Oncology

Top Doctor for over 10 consecutive years Donna Pinelli, M.D., F.A.C.O.G., a women’s cancer specialist, has been caring for patients in Palm Beach and the surrounding counties for over 20 years. She treats women facing uterine, ovarian, cervical and pelvic cancers, and other complicated gynecologic issues with skill, compassion and dedication. Dr. Pinelli serves as medical director of Gynecologic Oncology and the Frank E. and Mary D. Walsh Robotic Surgery Program at Jupiter Medical Center. Because every woman is unique, Dr. Pinelli works closely with other providers and oncology specialists to recommend the best course of treatment for each of her patients, depending on the stage and type of gynecologic cancer. Gynecologic cancer nurse navigators at Jupiter Medical Center guide patients through their care and recovery from cancer treatment. Dr. Pinelli performs hundreds of radical pelvic surgeries each year, and specializes in cancer surgery. She operates using an open approach when necessary. Many patients benefit from her extensive experience in minimally invasive and robotic surgery. Radical cancer surgery, whether open, laparoscopic or robotic, requires highly specialized training, equipment and facilities. Since 1996, Dr. Pinelli has performed thousands of robotic, laparoscopic and open surgeries for women with cancer and complex gynecologic problems. Minimally invasive surgery uses small incisions–only large enough for the insertion of specialized equipment, such as a camera or laparoscope–which a surgeon uses to view or operate safely within the abdomen. Using the latest minimally invasive technology or robotic surgery, Dr. Pinelli’s patients experience less pain, fewer medications, minimal hospital time and faster recovery.

are some of the aging changes to Q What the face and neck? A As we slowly age, our facial and neck skin loses its elasticity and gravity sags the tissues downward causing jowls to form and deepening of the naso-labial folds and marionette lines. These changes detract from our appearance, making us look older than we feel.

are the treatment options for Q What aging changes of the face? A The definitive treatment for loss of elasticity is a face/neck lift. A facelift is also commonly performed with a browlift and eyelid surgery. Medspa based treatments, on the other hand, are very helpful in complexion based concerns such as textural changes in the skin, as well as pigmentation issues or broken capillaries. These treatments include photofacials, IPL, Dermalinfusion, microneedling and chemical peels–to name a few.

That is the art behind the science–a combination Dr. Lickstein has built his reputation upon. Dr. Lickstein’s philosophy and approach combine technical skill with a sincere devotion to making a difference for his patients, peers, the specialty and the community.

Breast Enhancement Surgery encompasses a large range of procedures such as Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation, and Breast Reduction. Each woman’s breasts and aesthetic goals are different.  It is important to see a Fellowship Trained Plastic Surgeon who has been extensively trained in Full Body Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery like I have been.

Many times after childbirth women suffer from loss of volume and elasticity to their breasts and excess skin with stubborn areas of their tummy. A Mommy-Makeover involves lifting the breasts, with or without breast implants, performing a tummytuck to eliminate the extra skin of the tummy, and in some cases liposuction. These 3 procedures can be performed at the same time at a certified facility. It is important to see a Total Body Fellowship Trained Plastic Surgeon, like myself, to evaluate for your individual Mommy-Makeover Plan.

Why should the ladies have all of the options at their disposal? Maintenance and preventative treatments are also on the rise, for everyone.

While there are many options available, anyone interested in changing their body should be sure to work with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon. Do your homework and research potential surgeons. Check out their reviews online, and see if they have any before and after photos that show their work on real-life people. Once you schedule a consultation, ask any questions you may have. A qualified surgeon will be happy to ease your concerns without promising unrealistic results. You should leave your consult feeling confident that your surgeon is in your corner to help create the best results possible for you.

Q A

Do I have to be in pain or have a specific complaint to seek Acupuncture/Holistic care?

While there are many specific reasons why Acupuncture is a wonderful modality and used in today’s integrative medicine approaches, the idea of holistic healthcare is rooted in balance and preventative medicine. Optimal health means being aware and sensitive to minor imbalances in the body, then addressing them from root to branch, so they do not become major imbalances resulting in chronic disease. With this whole living approach to your health, the reality of living a long healthy and prosperous life can be realized.

Prepare to Care Nurturing the aged is one of humanity’s noblest and most beloved practices. In Korea, caregiving is so intricately woven into the communal fabric that younger generations feel it’s their filial duty to care for elderly relatives until their deaths. Yet, as benevolent as it sounds, would you be ready to become a family caregiver, if the opportunity arose? If not, read on for helpful advice and practical tips from local caregivers and industry pros in the Palm Beaches and beyond. By Kerry Shorr

D

r. Shady Salib isn’t the sort of physician who sugarcoats the truth. “Becoming a caregiver suddenly can be very stressful,” says Salib, a touted internist and the chief of staff at Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. Easing his patients’ families through the caregiving process is part of his daily routine, but he felt altogether unprepared when he learned his mother, a retired physician in her 70s, had fallen and fractured her leg during a visit to his sister’s home in Houston. “I freaked out and panicked,” he admits. He also remembers how his mind flooded with questions: How would his mother get up and down the stairs? Would he need to take time off from work?

Communities like La Posada and MorseLife offer independent and assisted living options.

According to AARP and the National Alliance for Caregiving, approximately 43.5 million Americans have served as unpaid caregivers to a family member in the past 12 months. With the nation’s elderly on the rise, so will be the need for affordable and accessible elder services and quality caregiving. In “The Silver Tsunami,” a recent study spearheaded by Broward’s Community Foundation, Jewish Federation and United Way, the region will witness its greatest population shift, from ages 55-64 to 60-74, in the next five to 10 years. “Broward is a growing community and the aging population is the biggest part of that growth,” says Sheri Brown, vice president of grants and initiatives at the Community Foundation of Broward. “The study’s important because, when we look at how our systems are currently designed, we find that it’s not equipped to handle this massive growth of older people.” While the system requires tweaking, family caregivers already have many resources at their disposal, including the Aging and Disability Resource Center in Broward and Palm Beach counties, and the Area Agency on Aging, whose office locations are listed on the State of Florida’s Department of Elder Affairs website.

point. Aging experts recommend talking to a loved one about their desires and expectations, which will help you determine your next steps. There’s always the possibility an older adult won’t want to divulge personal details or admit they need help, especially from children. Try discussing one area of concern, such as estate planning or gathering important paperwork. If you encounter resistance, ask their doctor or lawyer to run interference. BUILD AN ESTATE PLAN Your parents should have an estate plan, if they don’t already have one. This will outline how their assets are to be preserved, managed and distributed when they’ve passed away. Assets are typically transferred through a will, a trust or both. Lou Lehr, partner emeritus at Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr in West Palm Beach, recommends having both, but the trust being the operative document. “A trust can be used to avoid probate, a will cannot,” he says. Trusts can also reduce estate taxes and safeguard the inheritance from a beneficiary’s creditors. Trusts laws can be complicated and vary from state to state, so hiring an estate-planning lawyer to prepare them properly is a safe bet. A power of attorney agent or an estate trustee should also be appointed. Advance care planning is deciding and documenting, in an advance directive for example, the type of medical care a loved one

gulfstreammediagroup.com


would want if they became sick or incapacitated. A health care proxy can be assigned to make medical treatment decisions on the elder’s behalf. Be familiar with any health conditions your loved one has, and had, as well as what their insurance pays and what it doesn’t. CONSIDER LONG-TERM CARE INSURANCE The cost of elder care, especially if someone requires roundthe-clock assistance, can cause sticker shock. Depending on the policy purchased, long-term care insurance can pay part of the cost of care received at home, in assisted living residences or nursing homes, and other specialized services. HOME IS WHERE THE HELP IS Families often struggle over the best living situation for their parents. Three options to consider include in-home care agencies, nursing homes and assisted living communities. Nursing homes can be costlier than assisted living communities because they typically provide more intensive levels of care while elder care costs associated with in-home care can easily surpass assisted living expenses. For local Patti Unruh, her parents, John and Patricia Atwater, didn’t want to become an encumbrance to their six children.

gulfstreammediagroup.com

“They would say, ‘We want to be able to take care of ourselves so that we’re never a burden on anybody,’” Unruh says. After her father, a former FBI agent and WWII fighter pilot, died and her mother suffered a stroke that affected her vision, Unruh started looking for a retirement community with continuum care. With some coaxing from Unruh and her siblings, Enid and Jeff Atwater, the family matriarch agreed to stay in an independent living community at La Posada in Palm Beach Gardens, but on a trial basis. After six weeks, she was hooked. “Our mother was always very physically active,” Unruh says. “Here, she had a place to go, everybody knew her name and she could be busy all day long.” Continuing care retirement communities, like La Posada and MorseLife Health System, a five-star, 50-acre senior living community in West Palm Beach, are “one-stop shops” offering independent and assisted living options as well as memory care and skilled nursing. They also feature a range of amenities, like wellness and fitness programs and a busy social calendar. MorseLife President and CEO Keith Myers says due diligence and research are keys to finding quality senior living. “Once you’ve researched the facility, go see it and ‘kick the tires.’ Ask residents if they like living there and why they like it.” Keep in mind many assisted living facilities and nursing homes have waiting lists, and it may take years to snag a spot.

STARING IS CARING: LOOK FOR THE EARLY SIGNS OF DEMENTIA In 2018, more than 540,000 Floridians 65-years and older were diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, the most common type of dementia. Dr. Salib says looking for signs of early dementia can lead to a quicker diagnosis and treatment. After noticing two of his patients, both in their 80s and active, appeared unkempt and kept forgetting their medications, he reached out to their daughter. They discussed dementia and the warning signs. “I also asked if she or another family member could come with them to every visit,” he says. Over the next year, the couple’s blood pressure and sugars improved, and their confidence returned. “We slowed down the progression of the disease just by getting the caregiver involved and educated.”

CONSIDER PROFESSIONAL CAREGIVING ASSISTANCE Depending on the family caregiver’s schedule, or where they reside, hiring a professional may be necessary. Home care agencies, like Right at Home in Lake Worth and Palm Beach Gardens, offer a compendium of cost-effective services, ranging from housekeeping and running errands to performing memory and motion exercises. Employing an independent caregiver is another option. Be sure to conduct a complete background check and ask them to sign an independent caregiver agreement with a start date, schedule and responsibilities to avoid any issues later on. For a sample agreement, Paying for Senior Care (payingforseniorcare.com) is a useful resource.

“Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!” The National Council on Aging reports an elder adult dies every 19 minutes from a fall. Products with motion sensors can detect movement in the home so if someone hasn’t moved in awhile, possibly due to a fall or home health emergency, it will send a signal to your phone. Smartphone apps can be a caregiver’s best friend. Care.com makes it easy to source excellent caregivers. CareZone stores health information, like medications, medical files and important contacts, tracks refills and doctor’s appointments, and assigns tasks to helpers to squelch caregiver burnout. GoodRX compares prescription drug prices and finds coupons at area drugstores.

There are so many support systems that we, as doctors, can provide caregivers to help them be involved and not overwhelmed and burned out.”

TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF The role of a caregiver can feel taxing and lead to burnout. Lessen anxiety by carving out time for the activities you enjoy. Sign up for a respite service, like South Florida Institute on Aging RELIEF for Caregivers and Senior Companion programs, which sends over a trained volunteer to shoulder some of the caregiving responsibilities for a few hours. Supplement healthy practices by joining a support group and speak with your physician. Salib says, “There are so many support systems that we, as doctors, can provide caregivers to help them be involved and not overwhelmed and burned out.”

BENEFITS FOR CAREGIVERS Balancing a full-time or parttime job with caregiving responsibilities can lead to reduced work produc- Dr. Shady Salib tivity, tardiness and even time off. The Family Caregiver Alliance states that 70 percent of these caregivers suffer from work-related difficulties as a reGET IT TOGETHER sult of their dual roles.

RISK VS. REWARD DESIGNER H. ALLEN HOLMES DEFIES THE RULES BY BLENDING STYLES AND ERAS TO ECLECTIC PERFECTION.

hen the owners of an impressive Jupiter residence, one of multiple projects with interior designer H. Allen Holmes, stay in their part-time home, they bring essentially nothing but their toothbrushes. Along with a beloved raven sculpture, those are the only things they’ll pack whenever or wherever they decide to relocate. The mysterious black bird has undoubtedly seen many design styles as it’s traveled from home to home with the owners, now witnessing a sprawling 7,200-square-foot tour de force, featuring five bedrooms and seven baths, set along the Loxahatchee River. “Their other homes were either entirely modern or completely classic,” Holmes says of the owners’ previous residences and ever-changing taste. “But for this one, we were going for something in-between.” The hard part was finding the “sweet spot” between past and present. Holmes acknowledges the dramatic trend shift from Mediterranean revival to modern. “I think it’s a challenge for designers,” he says. “How do you adapt a classically finished home into something more contemporary?” Always on the hunt for inspiration, Holmes took the clients to see the renovated Boca Raton Resort and Club. “I had mixed feelings about it losing its Mizner-esque quality,” Holmes recalls. “But when I

saw it, I was amazed by how tastefully it was done.” He admired how the hotel’s design team had performed an amazing stunt: blending antique and modern elements within the same space. The homeowners agreed, and a plan of attack was hatched. Never one to shy away from risk, Holmes embraced the challenge. “I didn’t have any qualms about whitewashing the house,” he reflects. Immediately, he started painting the walls and existing neoclassical columns and moldings “decorators’ white.” Holmes broke free from the norms, allowing furnishings from various time periods to share a single space. His methodology was to “keep the bones” of the classical, and “sprinkle in” the contemporary. Using his refined eye while fearlessly throwing caution to the wind, he let 18th century-inspired pieces coexist with midcentury modern ones and

allowed traditional columns and arches to harmonize with contemporary LED lighting and ceiling fans. Leaving few epochs and regions unturned, he created an eclectic style, which he calls “international modern.”

columns and arched windows and doors, plus corbel detailing beneath the roofline, speak a neoclassical vernacular, but in lieu of the carriage lanterns, unconventional LED sconces made of matte steel and frosted glass light the way, suggesting change is on the horizon.

ENTRANCE GATE The tone of grandeur is set with the impressive entryway, which leads to the motor court beyond. Understated classic archways supporting a Spanish-tiled rooftop are adorned by an abundance of lush greenery and flanked by manicured hedges and verdant lawns. Tall palm trees stand proudly to welcome visitors as they pass through. Little do newcomers know what eclectic surprises are in store.

FOYER Once inside the elegant foyer, little doubt remains—this is going to be different. A loveseat that references the Baroque period is unexpectedly upholstered in sleek black leather. A four-legged center table boasts a high-lacquer sheen, and a massive light fixture, comprised of pale wood strips rolled into the shape of a “gift bow,” hangs down from a two-tiered, hexagonal niched ceiling.

that once were black iron, and paint them white. To complement the foliage motif, he treated the treads with a black and white needlepoint runner in a leaf pattern. A tall chandelier dripping with polished ebony metal tubes injects a dose of modernity. LIVING ROOM Working in a mostly neutral palette of white and cream, Holmes invigorates the room with throw pillows in a primary colored pattern, an ode to Mondrian. They are strategically placed on the pair of gently sloped, low-profile contemporary sofas that sit on either side of the neoclassical fireplace painted white. Cocktail tables shine like wet stones, and to complement their silvery finish, the designer set a sizeable geometric stainless-steel sculpture upon the mantel. “I felt there should be something tall and 3D to create a ‘relief,’” says Holmes of his audacious design choice.

The living room is an exercise in curvature, with contoured sofas and organic, river rock-inspired molded resin cocktail tables.

MEETING FOR MEALS Midcentury modern is in full swing in the family room and breakfast room, as well as the adjoining dining room, where distinguishing artwork is displayed throughout. Bent glass tables, minimal sofas, low-slung lounge chairs and a saarinen breakfast table complete the family room. A separate room includes a dining table made of glass and metal for more formal get-togethers. KITCHEN To meet the demand for the crisp, bright kitchen so many crave nowadays, Holmes painted the kitchen cabinets white. He selected a massive slab of white marble defined by dramatic black veining. The designer

MAY/JUNE 2019

had the idea to finish the countertops with a laminated white monolithic sculpture he compares to a carved bar of Ivory soap. It took some ingenuity to fabricate, but the job got done. To amplify the dichotomy of styles, Holmes incorporated an enormous and ultramodern domed light fixture he’d always wanted to use. MASTER BEDROOM The eclectic momentum continues into the master bedroom, where a geometric console sits below a mounted flat screen T.V. and a round banquette, like one might see in a historic European hotel lobby, adorns the sitting area. The streamlined, fully upholstered bed features a tall, buttontufted headboard, while glass and gloss nightstands end the design statement with modern punctuation.

MASTER BATH Taking the beige Saturnia marble tile into consideration, Holmes continued that shade on the walls of the oversized shower, and then treated the tops of the protruding tub and his-and-her vanities with quartzite material, thus achieving a flawless “greige” color scheme in the master bath. The custom LED-lit mirrors are cutting-edge. SCENIC VIEWS Since the homeowners cherish the outdoors so much, Holmes knew the backyard had to be spectacular. With an amazing pool and spa already working in his favor, he updated the space by replacing the terracotta tiles with a continuous slab of granite and added an array of minimalist, stark white patio furniture. Fortunately, Holmes’ clients were receptive to his theory that when done right, a Hepplewhite-style oval-back chair can coexist in perfect harmony with a modern abstract painting. “I felt it worked, and so did they,” he says. Indeed, the design risks he took were many—but in the end, the reward significantly outweighed them.

WATERFRONT PROPERTIES

Northeast Buyer Pipeline to South Florida Not Slowing by Bella Group

Like luxury real estate buyers worldwide, buyers from the Northeast continue to purchase South Florida luxury real estate at a fever pitch.

SWard HO-GMG.indd 2-3


Promotion

No single brokerage in its total market from Delray Beach to Stuart, Florida has been more successful marketing sellers’ properties to buyers from the Northeast than Waterfront Properties. Last year, Waterfront named 27 agents to its Captain’s Club, which recognizes agents’ annual sales of $10 million or more. Almost all of those agents count buyers from the Northeast among their sales. Waterfront Properties Owner Rob Thomson said, “Our websites ensure that when someone from the Northeast begins a property search on the Internet (as nine out of every ten buyers do), our sellers’ properties are among those that show up first and most prolifically. Waterfront’s listings are featured on 6000 international websites.” Another advantage Waterfront brings sellers is its longstanding professional relationships with top brokers and agents up and down the Eastern Seaboard. Towne Realty Group owner-broker-realtor Karen Eastman Bigos has said, “Many of my clients in New Jersey own a second home in the dozens of resort communities around Jupiter where Rob and his agents dominate the market. Whether my clients are buying or selling, I have complete confidence in making introductions to Rob’s brokerage.” Bigos’ Towne Realty Group is a specialist in New Jersey’s exclusive Millburn and Short Hills areas, having transacted more than $1 billion in sales over the last decade. Asked to attribute his brokerage’s success

with Northeast buyers, Rob Thomson said, “It’s our agents. Many of them have history with, or have relocated from, the Northeast. With years, sometimes decades, working with these specific buyer types, our agents understand these buyers’ needs, their concerns and, I think, their mindset. Using this knowledge, they are proactive in paving the way for a seamless, efficient process on the path to a sale. What I hear most often from out-of-state buyers is, ‘the agent made it so easy.’” He continued, “The relationships our agents develop and maintain are to their credit and play a huge role in the phenomenal sales they achieve year after year.” Thomson and his Waterfront agents’ relationships with their counterparts across the country, and specifically the Northeast, can sometimes circumvent the traditional sales process entirely. “Brokers will call and say, ‘I have a buyer interested in this.’ With our coverage area and the experienced agents in each micro market, we’ll almost always have the home or condominium to satisfy their buyer’s need.” Thomson concluded, “This head start is often all that is needed to see our sellers’ properties sold.” The pipeline from the Northeast to Florida shows no signs of slowing. The fast path to luxury real estate sales is best taken with the resources and expertise of Waterfront Properties and its micro-market specialist agents. Take the first step.

O

ur new governor continues to draw praise from the media on his new directions for Florida. The most recent was the appointment of a respected University of Florida expert on water resources to the new post of chief science officer. Showing such concern for the environment is a sharp contrast with Gov. Ron DeSantis’ predecessor, who acted as if climate change did not exist. He delayed the state eight years in reacting to the water crisis affecting Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades. He was also slow to move on transportation opportunities, turning down federal money for a study of a fast train between Orlando and Tampa. The only positive development in mass transit during his administration—Brightline, recently named Virgin Trains USA—was entirely a private initiative. Gov. Scott’s obsession with jobs and growth also appears to have been misguided, just leading to crowding up a state that needs to catch its breath while it figures out how to deal with overcrowded downtowns and the roads connecting them. Unlike DeSantis’ picks for most key jobs, Scott’s appointment of political toadies served only to weaken agencies key to solving our problems. It is almost as if DeSantis, without putting it in so many words, is out to reverse the unfortunate course for the state directed by Scott. Always one to jump on a good thing, we presume to advise the new governor of the next reform goal he might pursue. And that is putting the state behind the effort to develop the one promising transportation development that continues to feel opposition from broad sections of the state. We speak of the highspeed Brightline train, which has drawn rave reviews from those who had ridden it, but has been criticized—to the point of lawsuits—for its dangerous road

crossings, and for ignoring the Treasure Coast market on its northward path, eventually to Orlando. The Treasure Coast concerns have already been addressed. Brightline intends to put a few stations between West Palm Beach and Cocoa Beach, where the train will leave the FEC tracks and use a new track to be built to the Orlando airport. Those new tracks should have no grade-level crossings, enabling the train to make that leg even faster than its current speed. The railroad is also exploring additional stops at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and the Port of Miami, which should add appreciably to ridership. s for the safety issue, that’s more complicated. There is no argument that a 79 mph speed at grade level in congested areas is dangerous, even with the enhanced crossings that have been installed. But a problem created by man—in this case a ridiculous number of crossings on a busy railroad—can be solved by man. Especially if Gov. DeSantis throws some state sup-

A

port behind the effort to begin rebuilding the FEC tracks. To eliminate all the grade crossings is vastly expensive—and impractical. The crossings near the stations in Fort Lauderdale and West Palm Beach don’t need fixing because the train slows approaching and leaving them. And there are other less busy crossings that could simply be closed off. That would be an inconvenience to motorists, but a benefit to the neighborhoods that would be made more private, just as they were when numerous cross streets along our busier highways were closed. There are less populated sections of track where closing a crossing or two would open up several miles of unobstructed right of way where the trains could safely speed up to 100 mph or more. That would help offset the time lost with the new stations. However, there are some crossings where the tracks would have to be bridged. The busiest roads are the main problem, because at rush hour, inattentive drivers can find themselves stopped on the tracks as the gates go down and they hear the warning horn of an approaching train. Such bridges are expensive, especially if the construction involves removing buildings on both sides of the rails. That is where the state could help, but it would be only a fraction of the cost of the two just proposed new expressways in central Florida. Those roads will require dozens of new bridges, longer and much more costly than a bridge over two railroad tracks. Those new roads, of course, are designed to speed journeys and reduce congestion, but history has shown that fast new roads tend to quickly generate their own traffic. In contrast, the railroad, one of the few mass transportation steps in the last decade, is designed to relieve congestion. We should support it. So should the governor.
