he Œrst baby boomers are turning 60 this year. So just what does that mean for members of the post-World War II generation, considered by many to be the most inuential segment of the population? Hospitals and health-care institutions market toward them, home builders create active lifestyle housing for them, and travel companies tempt them with exotic trips. ˆThere are Œve key areas that people need to consider as they age,– said Marnie McDonough, lifelong planning coordinator with the Atlanta Regional Commission's Area Agency on Aging. ˆHealth, housing, Œnances, leisure pursuits and family relationships are all important, because this generation is living longer, and they need to be prepared. It's never too soon for them to start thinking about the long term.– In Clayton, Fayette and Henry counties, with a combined population of nearly 450,000, according to the Atlanta Regional Commission, there are nearly 95,000 people in the 45 to 64 age bracket. That's almost 20 percent of the population. Add in the number of people older than 65 in these three counties ¨ nearly 23,000 ¨ and this older generation becomes

almost a quarter of the population. This is signiŒcant not only because of the sheer numbers but also because it creates a challenge for those who will care for this generation.

Long-term care ˆWe're all living longer, healthier lives,– McDonough said. ˆBut there's still a potential for physical decline. Statistics say that six in 10 people will need some type of long-term care in their lifetime, either from a family member or a health-care facility of some sort.– In the last 15 or so years, insurance companies have developed policies aimed at covering the costs of long-term care, from 24-hour, athome nursing services to time spent in assisted living or nursing homes. ˆLong-term care insurance is a wonderful tool to pay for long-term care,– McDonough said. ˆAs you're shopping for policies, make sure you buy from a reputable Œrm and that

fore making a decision. The time to buy longterm care insurance varies, and rates depend on what's included in the policy and the applicant's age. ˆStart looking in your mid-50s,– McDonough said. ˆHowever, if you have a family medical history of illness, start looking earlier.

ˆMake good health choices starting now, if you're not already doing so. Eat well, exercise regularly and use caffeine, nicotine and alcohol in moderation. It's amazing that many of us can make time to eat a piece of chocolate cake, but we don't make time to exercise.– According to Dr. Christine Himes Fordyce, a member of the American Geriatrics Socciety, ˆbeing physically active can prevent and help treat several of the most common chronic medical conditions associated with old age. In fact, recent studies have shown that physical activity can help reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, depression, colon cancer and premature death.– Doctors usually recommend patients take certain diagnostic and baseline tests when they are about 50. Those include colon cancer screenings for men and women, prostate cancer examinations for men, bone mineral density scans to detect osteoporosis and cardiac stress tests. Some of the most common ailments as people age are vision and hearing loss and arthritis. ˆThese cannot be prevented, but with early detection, they can be manageable,– Mcdonough said.

When they take a trip, it's paid for in advance. Her mother has cared for the children, and Mauersberg pays her mother's expenses and provides spending money. ˆThe children adore her, and she's always here,– Mauersberg said. ˆShe has her friends and her own room, and I'm the one taking care of her. I'm glad to do it, because she deserves it.– McDonough points out that many baby boomers will be in similar situations, if they're not already. ˆMany boomers' parents didn't plan for this stage of their lives,– McDonough said. ˆToday the average life expectancy is 77.6 years. Social Security is talked about a lot, but it was never meant to provide all of a person's retirement income.– Times have changed in the years since the birth of the Œrst baby boomers in 1946. People are living longer; retirement plans and pensions are not as secure as they once were, and medical costs are escalating. ˆThe good thing is that time is on our side,– McDonough said. ˆPeople should begin thinking about their retirement the Œrst day they begin work.

A routine way to Œght aging Maintain youthful glow with proper skin care

LOOK YOUR BEST Though individual skincare regimens may differ, experts agree on measures anyone can employ to promote better skin.

➤ Get enough sleep. ➤ Bathe just long enough

By Pamela A. Keene For Southside Health In the battle for youngerlooking skin, there's one major enemy to look out for: the sun. Short of staying indoors all the time, there's no way to completely avoid the effects of the sun's rays. But, according to experts, there are ways to stave off some of the visible signs caused by sun exposure as well as the natural aging process. ˆFirst and foremost, eating right and exercising are key to looking younger,– said Phyllis Madans, a makeup artist with Lancùme. ˆIt's equally important to moisturize and use a sunscreen to help protect your skin.– In addition, Donald Pirozzi, a Fayetteville dermatologist, stressed the importance of using the right moisturizer. ˆPeople should continue to use sunscreens and make this No. 1,– he said. ˆThere

➤ Drink lots of water. The upper layer of your skin is about 10 percent water, while the deepest layers are close to 60 percent water. ➤ Use a humidiŒer in winter to keep the air from drying out your skin. ➤ Take a bath or shower only once a day. It's enough!

Broccoli, kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and spinach are great sources of B vitamins, along with antioxidants, vitamin C and vitamin E, Cannon said. These vegetables are believed to reduce the risk of some cancers, improve vision health and help strengthen bones and teeth.


Make no bones about it: Calcium, vitamin D essential in overall treatment

Most people don't get enough calcium, making them susceptible to osteoporosis and low bone mass, conditions affecting more than 45 million men and women in North America, Cannon said. Low- fat dairy products ¨ milk, yogurt and cottage cheese ¨ supply vitamin D and calcium needed to maintain bone health. People who choose soy products should make sure they are calcium-enriched, she added.

Healthy food choices will get you far in life f you want a healthy diet, think color. The more color on your plate, the better off you will be, Southside dieticians say. ˆDark-colored fruit and brightly colored vegetables have more nutrients than those with less intense colors,– said Carol Stringer, a clinical dietician at Henry Medical Center. A healthy diet should emphasize high-Œber and lowfat foods; lots of whole grains, vegetables and fruits; and limited amounts of caffeine and alcohol, added Sarah Cannon, a dietician at Southern Regional Medical Center.

Antioxidants found in berries, plums and raisins are being studied for their ability to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease and their role in slowing down the aging process. Anemia is an area of concern in older adults, and the iron contained in red meat will do the trick. Accompany the meat with food rich in vitamin C, such as tomatoes or a small glass of orange juice, to increase your body's absorption of iron, Cannon suggested.




Whole grains

➤ Order from the light menus now offered at many restaurants, or purchase low-calorie or reducedfat products at the grocery store. ➤ Try a meal plan using ˆexchange lists– based on foods grouped together according to similar food values. Most exchange lists include several ˆfree– foods: those with fewer than 20 calories per serving, such as many low-calorie, sugarfree foods and beverages. ➤ Never skip meals. Eat three to six times a day in smaller portions to keep from getting hungry. ➤ Eat and chew slowly. Learn to stop eating before you feel full. (It takes 20 minutes for the stomach to tell the brain that it is full!) ➤ Weigh yourself on a regular schedule, but don't become a slave to your scale. ¨ Metro News Service

Heart-healthy Œsh is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which strengthen bones, lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure and prevent heart disease. Tuna, mackerel and herring are other good sources.

As people age, they have a greater need for Œber in their diet, Stringer said. Whole grains can reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Check the ingredient list for whole wheat or oats and look for breads that have about 3 grams of Œber per slice, Cannon suggested. Brown rice, bulgur and bran are other good sources.

Salmon is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which strengthen bones.

For years, parents have been telling children to drink their milk and eat their vegetables to build strong bones, teeth and muscles. The advice is sound for adults as well, especially those with a genetic inclination toward osteoporosis. Recent studies have shown that taking calcium supplements alone or eating calcium-rich foods is not enough in promoting bone health. Pairing calcium with vitamin D improves results. Therefore, both drinking milk and eating vegetables can be useful in slowing the onset of bone degeneration. ˆVitamin D is the key to absorption [of calcium],– said Kate Wheeler, an endocrinologist with Laureate Medical Group in Riverdale. ˆVitamin D is found in green leafy vegetables, supplemented into milk, and people can also get it through sun exposure. Just a 20-minute walk outside each day provides enough sun exposure.– The walk in the sun also may be helpful in another way. Physicians recognize that exercise can help with symptoms of osteoporosis. ˆWeight-bearing exercise ¨ really anything but swimming ¨ really works well,– Wheeler said. ˆWalking, light weightlifting or any physical activity that puts weight on their bones can help.– Bone loss in women generally occurs after menopause. When women are no longer producing estrogen bones become less dense. Men also can be susceptible, although their symptoms are more than likely the result of medications or other factors. ˆPeople with more slender body frames have a higher risk,– said Ryan Duffy, a

Prah said. ˆIt depends on family history and the individual's medical and health history. However, osteoporosis becomes more of a problem after menopause.– According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 80 percent of those affected by osteoporosis are women, with Caucasian and Asian women more likely to develop the disease. African-American and Hispanic women also are at risk. Meeting the recommended daily requirements of calcium and vitamin D through diet or a combination of diet and supplements can help in the overall prevention or treatment program, according to the foundation. ˆThe recommended [total daily intake] is 1,500 to 1,800 mg of calcium and 400 to 800

units of vitamin D,– Wheeler said. ˆStarting early in life may help women have enough bone mass as they age.– What kind of doctor deals with osteoporosis? ˆGenerally, women talk with their gynecologist, internist or family physician,– Coursey-Prah said. Endocrinologists and rheumatologists also treat osteoporosis. Whatever the case, patients can discuss the timing for a bone scan with their physicians. ˆIt's easier to prevent bone loss than to rebuild bone,– Coursey-Prah said. ˆThe two main things to remember are to eat a good, balanced diet with lots of calcium and to exercise.– In addition, the foundation recommends avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol use.

FAST FACTS ➤ Osteoporosis is responsible for more than 1.5 million fractures annually. ➤ Osteoporosis is often called a ˆsilent disease– because bone loss occurs without symptoms. ➤ The most typical sites of fractures are the hip, spine, wrist and ribs, although any bone in the body can be affected. ➤ White women 65 and older have twice the incidence of fractures as African-American women. ➤ Bone loss occurs naturally during the aging process but accelerates after menopause. ¨National Osteoporosis Foundation

My Mean Uncle Arthur-itis It is usually fun to have family come visit, but it can be literally debilitating if this Uncle comes visiting. Arthritis, characterized by inflammation and swelling of soft tissue and lining of joints eventually leading to destruction of the joint and its composite bone, affects almost 40 million Americans. Although every joint in the body is susceptible, the foot with its 33 joints is a common target. Symptoms at the joint level can include swelling, pain, heat, redness, limitation of motion, and early morning stiffness. These symptoms can lead to damage of the cartilage and bone, which can be irreversible. Arthritis symptoms vary according tot he form of arthritis, which there are over 100 forms. Common types are osteoarthritis (wear & tear), Rheumatoid, Psoriatic, Gouty, and Infectious. Although arthritis can not be cured, controlling joint inflammation and preserving or optimizing joint function can treat arthritis symptoms, as result, hindering the destructive process of arthritis. Treatments include anti-inflammatory medications, orthotics (special inserts for shoes which off load the affected joints), physical therapy, exercise, and surgery to reconstruct and/or preserve joints. New advanced treatments include natural supplements (glucosamine and chondrotin), state of the art joint implants, and a new class of antiinflammatory medications, which have fewer side effects than the older classes. So, whenever Old Uncle Arthur comes knocking on your door to visit don’t panic because there is something that can be done about this most unwelcome visitor.

night and day when it comes to mobility. There's a tremendous difference in the physiological age of those men, said Cindy Lauer, director of SmartBodies. Physiological age is, basically, how old your body is. Someone who is 50 can have a physiological age of 40 or 70, depending on strength and muscle mass, blood pressure, body fat, brain function and other factors. ˆExercise and physical activity go hand-in-hand with proper nutrition when it comes to keeping people young,– said Carol Stringer, a clinical dietician at Henry Medical Center. Regular exercise reduces the risk of heart disease, prevents bone loss, releases tension and can help prevent or delay chronic illnesses and diseases associated with aging, according to the American Heart Association. The AHA recommends exercising 30 to 60 minutes most days of the week. In addition, the American College of Sports Medicine recommends strength training a minimum of twice a

of developing an exercise regimen is to do something you enjoy, whether it's riding a bicycle, water aerobics, kayaking, walking, running or jogging, Lauer said. ˆA lot of people think of exercises as a drudgery of routine activity, but if it's hard to keep up an exercise routine, that's not enjoyable. People should make exercise as much fun as they can, whether it's playing tag with their grandkids or chasing a Frisbee with the dog,– she added. At the very least, when you're watching television, do stretches or march in place during the commercials, or sit in a chair and do leg lifts, Stringer advised. These simple things don't replace a regular exercise program, but they can improve exibility and strength and burn a few calories at the same time, Stringer said. Brisk walking is an exercise that most people can do, Lauer pointed out. How do you know if your pace is fast enough to provide

➤ Aerobics: These exercises elevate the heart rate and strengthen the cardiovascular system. Try brisk walking, running, swimming, bicycling, jogging ¨ anything that increases your pulse rate. ➤ Strength training: The American College of Sports Medicine estimates that an adult's functional strength deteriorates 30 percent to 40 percent over the average life span. A lack of physical activity can lead to a condition known as sarcopenia, or age-related loss of skeletal muscle mass, strength and function. It's a good idea to get professional help with a strength-training program to make sure you're doing the

exercises correctly, Lauer said. Go to a health club and practice for 30 or 60 days under the watchful eye of a trainer, or hire a physical trainer to give you a few individual lessons, she said. ˆIf people lift too much too soon or don't use the proper form, they are setting themselves up for injuries,– she said. ˆThe results people get depend on whether they do the exercises properly.–

➤ Stretching: Flexibility is the exercise component people neglect the most, but and it's critical to maintain exibility for an enhanced quality of life, Lauer said. ➤ Balance and agility training: Generally speaking, balance declines after age 40, Lauer said. It's important to maintain balance and prevent injuries from falls. Tai chi, with its postures and circular movements, is an excellent way to improve balance.

Resources on aging right around corner By Pamela A. Keene For Southside Health Talking about wills, healthcare decisions and Œnances can be uncomfortable for many families, but experts say that having a family talk periodically can save heartache in the years to come. Whether you're caring for aging parents or hoping to ensure your own wishes are met as you age, this is an important step for families. ˆSome of the things we're dealing with for our aging parents are our own issues as well,– said Gay Watson with the Consumer Credit Counseling Service of Atlanta. ˆIf


we don't have a plan in place to manage our golden years, they may not be so golden.– Critical components of a good plan include a durable power of attorney for health care, a durable power of attorney for Watson Œnances and a will. Many families have never sat down to discuss their Œnancial future or long-term health wishes, Some don't have wills; others have not created important legal documents to assist their families in caring for them as they age, she said.

ˆMake sure that your adult children know where these documents are in case they need them,– Watson said. ˆThis is one of the Œrst steps in caring for family members.– Resources for elder care and long-term planning are available through the Atlanta Regional Commission's Area Agency on Aging, which advocates, plans, coordinates, develops and delivers services for seniors (60 years and older); adults (21-59 years) with disabilities and long-term care needs, and family caregivers

in the 10-county metro area. Older citizens and their families are offered many options, including information and referral services, case management, transportation, home-delivered meals, senior centers, legal services and more through this network of care. Additionally, the agency presents information programs about aging. ˆWe'll go out and give talks to churches, civic groups and organizations,– said Marnie McDonough with the Area Agency on Aging. ˆWe also provide one-on-one counseling.– Programs also provide information about caring for

aging parents who are nearby or far away. The agency's Aging Information Network can help locate caregivers, programs and information to assist family members. Complete information is available by calling Atlanta Regional Commission Aging Connection line, 404-463-3333, or visiting the agency's Web site: ˆCurrently, 54 million Americans are caring for aging family members,– McDonough said. ˆTo help with their caregiving, families need to have a plan in place, but in some many cases, that conversation is never started.–

Other advice to consider for people who want to put their best face forward: ➤Eat good fats like those found in seafood and walnuts to reduce the inammation that may lead to wrinkles. ➤ Avoid reŒned carbohydrates, which can cause insulin spikes and breakouts. ➤ Drink plenty of water, and keep alcohol to a minimum to make sure skin stays hydrated. ➤ Strengthen nails by including biotin-rich foods in your diet (such as cooked eggs, soybeans and rice bran). Looking great also means keeping body weight under control. Natural, whole foods like fruits and vegetables provide the foundation of a well-balanced diet. You will get more than just age-defying antioxidants. The high Œber and water content of such bulky, low-cal fare will keep hunger at bay.

➤ Schedule regular visits to the eye doctor. While not everyone needs to go every year, those 55 and older should go at least once every other year, or once a year, if possible. Many eye afictions offer no noticeable symptoms in their early stages, so it's important not to wait until something bothers you. ➤ Wear sunglasses.

Sunglasses protect the eyes from solar ultraviolet radiation, something that can be very damaging. While sunglasses should be worn year-round when it's light out, they should be especially be worn during summertime, when UVB radiation is three times higher

than it is during winter.

➤ Improve lighting around your house. If you've always been fond of dimly lit rooms, it's a good idea to add more lighting now, as more well-lit rooms are an aid to diminished vision. ➤ Take care of yourself.

Proper health care, including a good diet and ample exercise, is especially vital to maintaining strong vision. Monitoring your blood pressure and cholesterol level regularly can help you avoid diseases such as diabetes that may ultimately affect your vision. If you wear glasses, make sure you always have them with you or wear them wherever you go if need be. Also, take note of any vision aids that might be helpful, including a magnifying glasses or high-intensity reading lamps.

The old adage, ˆyou are what you eat,– is getting a 21st-century makeover. Until recently, most dietary advice has focused on weight management and disease prevention. That focus is now expanding to speciŒcally look at how what people eat can affect how they look. New research is examining the role of key nutrients in preserving a youthful appearance. Vitamins A, C and E, for example, are essential to healthy skin. Vitamin A, also known as beta-carotene, helps block UV radiation. Carrots, spinach, butternut squash and cantaloupe are all great sources of this complexion-protecting nutrient. Vitamins C and E are antioxidants that help encourage skin-cell turnover and collagen formation. Broccoli, citrus fruits, red peppers and strawberries are all rich in vitamin C, while vitamin E is found in almonds, avocados and dark, leafy vegetables. It's always best to choose food sources of such nutrients over supplements, which may
