Something new for you Keep the journey alive and lively

OUR SON ANDY AND I SIT around playing guitars and crooning when he’s in town. He indulges me and plays old John Prine and Neil Young songs. And he introduces me to newer material…though I just can’t seem to quite get into the Taylor Swift stuff that he plays as a crowd pleaser for his younger cousins. Anyway, sometimes we end up banging on the guitars while sitting around a camp fire and someone will say something such as, I wish I had learned to play the guitar. And I typically respond with something such as, well, you’re not dead yet. That’s usually followed by a little chuckle but not really an acknowledgement that they’re going to go out and pick up a guitar. Same thing with learning a foreign language or how to play bridge or how to knit or going to Paris. In Tibet, a saying goes: Even if you’re going to die tomorrow, you can still learn something new today. I think that’s a great attitude. I tried my hand at gardening starting a few years ago, and although I’m far, far, far from a master gardener, I certainly have learned a lot about how things grow. And nowadays, it seems that continued learning, whether formal subjects, travel, skills, hobbies or experiences are becoming more accessible than ever. This issue of Fifty & Better, which includes Bounty Food and Farm Guide, is chock full of ideas to keep you learning and growing. If you’re looking for some formal coursework, check out the feature by Kim Sharpe. She surveyed the formal continuing education scene here in northern Colorado and lays it out clearly for you. Need a little motivation and direction? See what Bob Calhoun says about the power of intention and how you can use that to take charge of your journey. Our volunteer story spotlights a man who began working with youth in a mentoring program in Greeley. He says that he gets out and does things he never thought he would do and the rewards of working with a young person are important to both of them. I think, part of it is working to develop a mindset that says I’m going to break out of my regular patterns. I’m going to put some effort into trying something new… whether it’s that thing I’ve always wanted to do or that place I’ve always wanted to go, or it could be something completely off the wall that just caught your eye. It’s so easy just to turn the TV on again or surf the web and let the time pass, but with a little effort you can enrich your life and, likely, the lives of those around you. Just do it (I didn’t make that up), Scott

Better Health

Kim Sharpe

Staying up on fall prevention THE GROUND IS SO HARD and it’s best not to slam your body into it. The Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment recommends the following precautions for staying on your feet. Regular exercise that focuses on balance and building core strength, like yoga, tai chi and weight lifting, can help you become more stable and reduce your chance of falling. Annual eye exams and up-to-date eyeglass prescriptions maximize vision so you can better see potential tripping hazards.

16 |


Reduce tripping hazards in your home: throw out throw rugs, add grab bars inside and outside the tub or shower and next to the toilet, install railings on both sides of stairways and improve the lighting in your home. Dizziness and drowsiness, which can lead to falls, are common side effects of certain over-the-counter and prescription medications. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if anything you’re taking could cause you to feel unsteady so you can plan your activity accordingly.

Crafting a healthy brain YOUR BRAIN COULD BENEFIT from regular doses of fiber. Not the kind you eat, but rather the kind you spin, weave and tie in knots. Activities like knitting, crocheting, quilting and many other fiber crafts that provide mental challenges help keep brain neurons firing and sharp; those with rhythmic motions sooth the brain. “There’s promising evidence coming out to support what a lot of crafters have known anecdotally for quite some time, and that’s that creating—whether it be through art, music, cooking, quilting, sewing, drawing, photography or

cake decorating—is beneficial to us in a number of important ways,” says Catherine Carey Levisay, a clinical neuropsychologist and wife of CEO John Levisay. “The skills involved in fiber arts are useful to everyone, and it’s silly that knitting and crocheting are viewed as crafts for females,” says Ryan Arithson, a fiber arts instructor at Lambspun in Fort Collins. “Accomplished designers are both women and men in the fiber world.” So when you feel stressed and like your insides are tied up in knots, try knitting or crocheting to unwind.

Oh, dem bones BONES WEAKEN AS WE AGE, and broken bones, most often due to osteoporosis, become more common as we get older. “After a hip fracture, eight out of 10 people will go to a nursing home. One year later we find one in five have died and nearly half are still in the nursing home. Only one in five will recover their independence one year after a hip fracture,” says Dr. James D. Hendrick, a Fellow of the American College of Physicians, a Diplomat of the American Board of Internal Medicine

and medical director of the Center for Bone Health in Fort Collins. The most important preventive step to take is to be screened for osteoporosis “…with a bone density test called a DXA scan. This testing helps us understand the risk of future fracture,” Hendrick explains. “Another extremely important thing that prevents fractures is to avoid falling down, since most osteoporosis fractures are the result of a simple fall that would not injure healthy bones.” To learn more about bone health, talk to your doctor or visit the National Osteoporosis Foundation at

Upon entering the second half of life, few can say, “My life has turned out just as I planned it.”

20 |


FOR EACH OF US, challenges and unexpected opportunities have altered the direction and fabric of our journey. But our intentions to pursue certain goals and live by chosen values and the efforts to follow through on those intensions have been central to shaping our life path. Our intentions are in a way like the rudder we control on our ‘boat’ as we navigate the

Power of intention in the third chapter of life

changing conditions we face in life. But what is the role of intention in this latter chapter of life? Three years ago, I attended a weeklong Conscious Eldering retreat led by Ron Pevny, author of Conscious Living, Conscious Aging. The retreat focused on transitioning into the last third of life. On the final day, we were asked to list ten intentions for our next ten years. The purpose

UPCOMING RETREAT Ron Pevny’s upcoming retreat: Choosing Conscious Eldering Ghost Ranch, New Mexico October 1-7. More information at

of the exercise was to encourage attendees to take charge of their elder journey, to ‘keep a hand on the rudder,’ crafting a path following one’s deepest passion and open to new beginnings. We were instructed to list intentions both general and specific in nature. Some examples…strike a better work-life balance, dedicate more time to one’s spiritual practice, be more accepting of others, create a financial plan for retirement, have lunch once a month with your adult child, write 50 poems by years end, go to a midweek day game at Coors Field. And there is no magic to the ten-year time frame. The intentions were meant to be revisited periodically and revised if necessary based on changes in interests and life circumstances. So I encourage you to draft a list of your ten intentions for the next ten years. Then challenge yourself to take that first step. It may be starting a conversation you have been putting off, cleaning out that first closet or shelf, making a phone call to a friend or professional, purchasing a ticket to somewhere, initiating a lifestyle change,

submitting your essay for publication, or trying something completely new. Taking that first action step is the sweet side of intention! ‘A first step’ reminds me of a poem by David Whyte, “Start Close In.” The initial stanza reads, “Start close in, don’t take the second step, or the third. Start with the first thing close in, the step you don’t want to take.” (Check out the entire poem and others by David Whyte in River Flow: New and Selected Poems.) This last third of life is much like other life stages. It is ours to craft. No longer in the building phase of careers, households or financial security, we are more likely on the path, as Carl Jung wrote, of simplifying, clarifying and intensifying…a journey which is more interior, spiritual and relational in nature. The crafting begins with intention and then taking that first step. When we are clearer about our intentions, we might be amazed by what support the universe offers.

Back to school Let the world be your classroom Kim Sharpe TAKE IT FROM GENIUS ALBERT EINSTEIN, “Intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death.” With CSU, UNC, Front Range and Aims Community Colleges in our backyard, there are many formal opportunities for intellectual growth. CSU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute “is a member-based, memberdriven learning community for people who want to continue learning in retirement in a stress-free, welcoming environment,” says Jean Morgenweck, director of Osher. The institute’s course offerings provide opportunities to explore fresh insights, stay current on important topics and meet new people. They include: Global and Cultural Awareness,

24 |


Environmental Issues, History, The Great Outdoors, Personal Skill Development, and more. Lenora Bohren, a retired CSU professor and Osher member, says, “Osher helps satisfy my curiosity to learn new information and ideas that I wasn’t able to explore when I was working. For example, one of my alltime favorite Osher classes is Ghost Towns of Colorado.” Through its alumni association, UNC offers 80-minute “Community Conversations” throughout the Front Range region, which feature “…presentations and activities that allow you to engage directly with topics that are important to you.” UNC faculty, alumni, and staff who are experts in their fields share their passions with Community

Conversation participants. Our local community colleges offer many opportunities for continuing education for the more mature student, too. For example, Front Range Community College offers Survival Spanish for Travelers, Birding for Beginners and Wildflower Identification for Hikers. Aims Community College strives to provide engaging continuing education opportunities, too. “Whether you are earning a degree, brushing up on career skills or seeking a lifelong learning opportunity, you will enjoy Aims Community College’s award-winning flexible, high-quality, and affordable educational environment,” says Dr. Dr. Leah L. Bornstein, Aims president.

the Estes Valley Library, High Plains Libraries, Loveland Library and Poudre River Libraries are not exceptions. “Throughout our lives, libraries are the place we’ve come to trust for reliable, unbiased and easy-to-access information. With all the programs libraries have to offer, they are the perfect place for older adults to rediscover their appetite for learning, for growing and for just plain happiness,” says Claudine Perrault, Estes Valley Library director. “At our library, it’s easy to find older adults participating in all types of lifelong learning like learning how to borrow digital books and navigate their tablets and iPhones, to attending and giving travel-adventure lectures, to taking a workshop on how to save money during retirement.”

Hit the books

Traveling tutelage

Libraries are yet another source of lifelong learning opportunities, and

Some people prefer to take their learning on the road. Through organizations

like Road Scholar, you can learn while you travel. Road Scholar offers educational trips that range from active adventures to more refined explorations of cultures and the arts. NoCo resident Jane Armstrong has taken several trips through the Road Scholar organization. “The trips I’ve taken have been a combination of places I’ve always wanted to go and things I’ve wanted to learn about,” she says. Armstrong leans toward the active offerings. She’s enjoyed a golf instruction course in St. George, Utah, that included a side trip to Zion National Park and a lecture about the area’s geological history; a trip to Glacier National Park that included a lot of hiking, plus education about various types of forests and wildlife; and a two-week stay in New Zealand that included a mix of education about that country and hiking, biking, rafting and horseback riding.

Bringing the Joy of Natural Hearing

Back to Everyday L ife I

grew up in Southern California, always knowing that I wanted to become an equine veterinarian. After junior college, I moved to Fort Collins, CO to attend CSU’s Equine Sciences program.   In my undergraduate junior year, I realized that horses were my passion and hobby and I really did not want to “work” my hobby.  I needed to find a career that I felt the same passion.  In 1999, I began working at a hearing clinic as the receptionist.  Within a few months, I knew helping people restore their hearing was my career passion.  I went back to school, studied under my mentor and received my Certification in Hearing Healthcare and my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management.   I have also furthered my education by taking online courses in Neuroanatomy to learn more about how the brain works. In July 2010, my career path expanded by becoming the owner of Advanced Hearing Services.  I enjoy my journey everyday by helping people regain their natural hearing. I believe that what sets me apart from others in my field, is that I am the owner and provider at Advanced Hearing Services.  I am not owned by a large corporation that dictates what I can provide for my patients.  I have the autonomy to make decisions that benefit you, not a large manufacturer. When you call to make an appointment, your appointment will be with me.  I will guide you through the process of restoring your natural hearing and will continue to provide care for many years. I have a large practice with a family feel.  Everyone who becomes part of Advanced Hearing Services will be part of my family. Away from the office, my husband Duane and I enjoy the beautiful nature that Fort Collins offers us and I ride my two horses, Einstein better known as “E” and Ruby. Thank you to everyone who trusts me with your hearing healthcare,

Susan Susan D Baker, BC-HIS, Owner Board Certified Hearing Instrument Specialist

Feel good in your feet for Fall As summer winds down and autumn approaches you might be noticing that your feet are a little worse for the wear. Summer is a time for sandals and fun in the sun, however, it can leave us with a number of troublesome issues such as hard calluses, dry and cracked skin and athlete’s foot infections, not to mention numerous aches and pains from all the flip flops and barefoot walking. Fortunately, there are several easy tips one can use to get those feet back into shape in no time.  When feet are exposed to water and moisture for too long, fungal growth can occur. This is often referred to as Athlete’s foot, which is a common problem during the hot summer months when our feet sweat much more and we tend to spend more time at the lake or pool-side. Rather than wear one pair of shoes day in and day out, it is best to rotate through a few pairs. This allows the shoes to fully dry out prior to wearing them again. In addition to this, using a wicking sock can help to draw moisture out and away from the skin. Make sure the spaces between the toes are always dried well and avoid lotion between the toes. Once an infection has developed it is best to contact your podiatrist for a prescription to treat the infection. Failure to treat the infection can lead to other problems, such as toenail infections or break down of the skin that can lead to

cellulitis, a serious bacterial infection that may require antibiotics, hospitalization and/or surgery. While some of us have issues with feet that are too wet, others have the opposite problem and struggle with calloused, dry and cracking skin. Regular use of a foot file or pumice stone can help to reduce the discomfort from painful calluses and an exfoliating scrub can help loosen dry, dead skin. If the skin is beginning to crack, getting the calluses thinned down is a key part of treatment. Once the calluses are taken care of use a thick moisturizing cream or ointment on the affected area and cover with socks or plastic wrap for the night. This will help to hold all that moisture in and your heels should be feeling baby smooth within a week. If this fails to do the trick reach out to your podiatrist as there are many excellent prescription creams available for this very purpose. Lastly, don’t forget to stay hydrated! One of the greatest pleasures of summer, in my opinion, is walking barefoot in sand at the beach or through some nice cool grass. However, this can certainly take its toll on the skin of the foot as previously discussed. In addition to this, frequent barefoot walking or wearing flip flops and strappy sandals through the summer months can contribute to several forms of overuse injuries. These include such bad actors as plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis and stress fractures. Naturally, the best solution is prevention. Begin the summer months by wearing more supportive sandals. Many of the hiking style sandals are very well constructed and are designed to allow for hours of use on uneven and varied terrain. This would be my first recommendation. If hiking sandals aren’t for you, fortunately there are many companies that are making dress-style sandals with good arch support as well. If the damage is already done and you are experiencing foot, ankle or leg pain, it is time to seek professional help. With guidance and education through your podiatrist we can often speed recovery significantly so that you can get out there and keep enjoying the turning of the season… Welcome Autumn! Kate Johnson DPM is a board qualified podiatrist practicing at A STEP AHEAD FOOT & ANKLE CENTER, in Loveland and Fort Collins, along with Michael Burns DPM, Robert Schulte DPM and Chad Knutsen DPM. Currently accepting new patients. Dr. Kate also now seeing patients in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

Mentoring youth adds meaning to life ARE YOU STUCK IN A RUT? Feeling useless? Bored? Then partner with a kid and put some fun back into your life. “You’ll get out and do things you never thought you’d do,” says Bill Heideman, a volunteer with Greeley’s Partners Mentoring Youth program. Since 1978 Partners Mentoring Youth has supported thousands of one-to-one mentoring relationships between positive adult role models, like Heideman, and youth ages 7-17 who are facing challenges in their personal, social and academic lives. Senior partners commit to hang out with their junior partners for a minimum of once a week for one year. The partners may share a meal together, enjoy some fun social time and just get to know one another. Heideman became a senior partner in 2015 to a young man who’s now 14

years old. He taught his junior partner to fish and enjoy the outdoors. They also like to go bowling together and participate in the many activities the Partners program plans for its participants. At 64 years old and with grown kids who are off doing their own thing, one might think it would be time for Heideman to take time for himself. But that’s not the case. When he experienced significant changes in his own life (after 35 years, he lost his job at Kodak and then his marriage deteriorated to the point of divorce), he knew he needed to change his outlook. He decided to do that by giving back to the community and thought the Partners Mentoring Youth program would allow him to do so in a special way. “I wanted to help a kid grow up who maybe doesn’t have as much as my own kids did,” he says. “But my favorite

part is encouraging this young person with so much potential to be a leader.” “Kids always benefit from having adult mentors in their life, but there are a lot of local kids who don’t have access to positive role models who can help shape their future,” says Vanessa Lewis, Partners community engagement manager. “As northern Colorado grows, the need for dedicated volunteers grows with it. Partners currently has nearly 150 kids on the waitlist. We especially have a shortage of male mentors, which means boys on our waitlist might wait for months before getting matched.” Bill says, “The Partners program has given me a way to meet other people and gives me a sense of belonging. Also, I’ve realized, even though I’m older, I have a lot to contribute.” Don’t we all?
