Stand-up Guy BY DIANE MEEHL Sean Hoy admits it: He’s no good at accounting, and he had a cubicle job for all of a week. Early in his life, the consummate “class clown” performed his own talk shows beginning in second grade in the school library. He’s still doing that today, playing master of ceremonies, event host and even private bartender. Hoy has emceed several Lovin’ Life After 50 Expos, where seniors mix it up with vendors and service providers to learn about the various resources available to them. He reports the gigs are great ones. “I love the crowd,” he says. “They’re just so appreciative of a smile. You can see they appreciate the energy we bring to them. You can really make someone’s day there.” Just don’t expect him to stand onstage and tell jokes at the expos. Burning off his infectious, relentless energy, he’ll be roaming the room and interviewing folks at the booths. “A long time ago, I learned that making people laugh wasn’t about me. It wasn’t about how funny I could be. It was about talking to people. Now I incorporate the audience into my show. Nothing’s more funny than a secretary who has something to say about the boss,” he shares. “I just hold the microphone (or wireless mic) and I let the guests be the stars,” he says.

Sean Hoy has hosted several LLAF expos. (Photos courtesy Sean Hoy)

Like most “aha” moments, it was a tough one onstage that shaped the biggest lesson he learned in his career: to put people first. “I was emceeing an event at the Arizona Humane Society, where I do a lot of work,” he says. “They wanted us to come and do comedy, and I thought it would be so cute and fun, puppies and all that. “But the crowd was so somber, and people in the audience were crying. Someone pulled me aside to remind me it was

Tools of the Trade

A native Arizonan, Arizona State graduate and one of four children, Hoy started out as a cartoonist, something he’s still passionate about. The editorial bone is in his blood, he says. His father was an accomplished photojournalist, whose credits include a post as White House photographer spanning several administrations beginning in 1963. (In fact, his parents met at the Washington Post.) Hoy worked the stand-up comedy circuit at lofty marquees, including the Comedy Store in Southern California, and the Scottsdale Improv. But it was his work drawing pictures that led to his real start juggling his craft as a cartoonist with emceeing fundraisers, corporate parties and other events. “The people at Ames (Drywall Finishing Tools & Services) asked me to draw a character for them. Then, they said, ‘That’s you.’” He got to play the character for several years, fortuitous for a man who claims comedy is his “tool” wherever he’s working. Hoy says he enjoys working for Phoenix Children’s Hospital and the Arizona Humane Society and other charitable causes. His mixology classes are packed to overflowing at the Four Seasons, where he stirs in comedy with cocktails. Hoy also

landed a “man on the street” gig for local legendary DJ Dave Pratt’s radio show and now television production. And he’s got a talk show dubbed Hoylarious, on which he emulates some of his heroes, including Johnny Carson and Jimmy Fallon. “I admire their laid-back likeability,” Hoy says he has “a happy center.” he says. “I’m not really into being put on the spot when people say, ‘Hey, funny boy, make me laugh!’” Once he played emcee for a casino event with a Goodfellas theme for RSC Rentals. “I got to wear this cool tux, and I threw a couple of horse heads in bed just to get into character,” he quips. Clearly he can be funny on demand, but he still prefers to let the audience come up with the best lines. He’s not one of those comics, he says, whose brand of comedy masks a deeper sadness. “Not me. I’ve got a happy center,” he says. “And I want to use it to spread joy and happiness to others.” To learn more about Lovin’ Life After 50 expos, visit seniorexpos.com

Caring for Caregivers during National Family Caregivers Month BY NIKI D’ANDREA People born between 1945 and 1965 have been called different generational terms, most familiarly “Baby Boomers.” But now, many people in the Boomer age group are finding themselves under another label: the “Sandwich Generation.” The term has nothing to do with what they eat. The Sandwich Generation consists of those people who find themselves caring for both their underage children and their aging parents simultaneously. It’s a group growing in tandem with the expanding percentage of “family caregivers” – those who provide care for an aging or disabled loved one, free of charge, and often free of outside resources. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services estimates that approximately 70 percent of people age 65 and older will need some form of long-term care. And a recent AARP study shows that 87 percent of adults age 65 and older want to “age in place” and stay in their own homes, rather than be moved into a care facility. There are two options for people who want to provide in-home care for their elders: Hire a company to provide it, or be the caregivers themselves. According to the Arizona Office on Aging, family caregivers provide more than 80 percent of all uncompensated care in the state.

But caring for an older adult (or a younger one with a disability) is not easy. Even selecting the right home care provider can be a challenge. So what should people look for in a prospective provider? There are myriad home care providers throughout the Phoenix metro area and Tucson. One measure of a company’s reputation is whether or not they’ve been recognized by a national organization in the field, according to Carrie Kandes, who does public relations for FirstLight Home Care, a nationwide company that provides non-medical care. “Non-medical home care provides the assistance and support people may need to maintain independence where they live,” Kandes says. “We’re helping people in your community maintain independence and enhance quality of life where they live.” FirstLight offers non-medical assistance with things like bathing, cooking, light housekeeping, errands and transportation. Another Arizona-based company, Golden Heart Senior Care Scottsdale, which provides services Valleywide,

Emergencies Happen

Prepare a basic emergency supply kit in the event of an emergency or disaster. (Special to LLAF)

How can you better prepare for them? BY KEN ARCIA

Arizona Relay Service

Let’s face it: When an emergency occurs, it is worrisome for just about anyone. For those who have a hearing loss or are deaf, emergencies can be even more so without taking the proper precautions to prepare for them. During any emergency situation, first responders are swamped trying to assist as many people as they can. They can’t be everywhere at once, which is why it is so important each of us does our part to be prepared in the event an emergency does occur. We have compiled some tips that are useful to everyone, as well as a list of emergency preparedness equipment that can help you safely navigate an unexpected crisis.  What should I include when creating an emergency preparedness plan?

Make a list of important phone numbers. This should

include both landline and cell phone numbers, if available. Be sure to include an out-of-town contact who you can tell that you are safe. It is important to note that even if phone lines are down and you aren’t able to place a call, it is possible for text messages to go through. Have an evacuation route. Know the ways you can exit your home. You should try to have at least two exits from every room in case a fire prevents you from exiting through the door. Also select a family meeting place both in the neighborhood and outside the neighborhood to confirm everyone has arrived safely. Make sure to include your pets in your plan. If you have pets, be sure they are noted in your evacuation plan. Create a list of hotels that are pet-friendly in the event you need to stay in one for several days. And include vet information in case records are needed. Research and see if your neighborhood/city keeps a registry of people who might need additional communication services in the event of an emergency. If so, be sure to register yourself. This will allow emergency responders to assist you quickly in any sort of disaster. Ask a neighbor to help keep you informed. If you aren’t able to hear the warning system, ask a neighbor or someone in your support network if they would be willing to keep you informed in the event of any emergency. Add their contact information to your list of phone numbers.  Put together an emergency kit. It’s always best to have one of these available to you in case of an emergency. Be sure to include non-perishable food, water, medication, a first aid kit and preprinted messages if you are deaf or hard of hearing that will assist others in communicating with you.

Emergencies...continued from page 12 Is there equipment available that will help notify me of an emergency?

Alerting devices not only help people stay connected; they also help keep people safe during an emergency situation. They use one or more of these types of signals: visual (flashing lights), vibrotactile (vibrating components) or auditory (increased amplification and lower frequency sounds). These types of signals can be found in the following alerting devices: Alarm clocks - customized alarm clocks for people who have hearing loss come in many forms, including those that have builtin strobe lights or bed-shakers. Doorbell signalers – these can range from a simple, flashing strobe light to a system connected to your phone or one with its own receiver. Phone signalers – with advancements in technology, phone signalers, while still useful, have been adapted more towards cell phone usage. Modern bracelets can now alert people when their cell phone is ringing, when they are receiving a text and even when a fire alarm goes off. Weather alerts – these alerts can give warning to those who either cannot hear storm sounds outside or aren’t tuned into the TV. A weather alert radio can be used on its own or with other accessories, such as strobes or bed shakers. Baby cry signalers  – manufacturers now make transmitters and receivers specifically meant to detect a baby’s crying and transmit it to a central alert system. If you are in need of an alerting device but aren’t sure which kind will best suit your situation, organizations like the Arizona Technology Access Program (AzTAP) not only offer advice and technological support, but they also will lend you an alerting device for up to two weeks in order to help you determine whether it’s right for you. All of these services come at no cost. In addition to AzTAP, Arizona Relay Service provides comprehensive support and advice for those who are deaf or hard of hearing. These include how to place a call through Arizona Relay, how to effectively operate various communication services, like TTY, VCO and captioned telephone services, Arizona Telecommunications Equipment Distribution Program information, a comprehensive list of relay-friendly businesses in Arizona and an updated calendar to keep you informed on upcoming events, workshops and expos aimed towards healthy hearing awareness and education. For more information about AzTAP and Arizona Relay Service, visit aztap.org and azrelay.org.

Celebrating the

Age of

Elegance Leta Sproule finds Ms. Senior Arizona prize inspiring BY CHRISTINA FUOCO-KARASINSKI

Leta Sproule was at peace as she awaited her turn to compete in the 2017 Ms. Senior Arizona Pageant. Usually, before she sits down at her piano, her hands get cold, forcing her to wear gloves to literally warm up for her performance. Butterflies fill her body. None of that happened this time. Her cool yet playful demeanor and artistic talents led to her coronation. “They had told us that we would have a few nerves,” says Sproule, who lives in Sun City West with her husband of 21 years, John. “A few jitters are good, I guess. But I truly understood for the first time that true peace surpasses understanding.” Since March, Sproule has been promoting Ms. Senior Arizona’s mission of giving women ages 60 and older – otherwise known as “the age of elegance” – the opportunity to display their inner beauty, talents, charm and elegance. She has attended parades, benefits and special events geared toward seniors, and supported the Cameo Foundation, which provides resources to domestic violence survivors. Sproule, 67, learned about the Ms. Senior Arizona Pageant through a friend. Sproule Googled the event, looked at photographs of previous winners and read the mission statement.

“At first, I said, ‘No, no, no,’” Sproule says with her slight Southern accent. “Then I prayed. I said, ‘God, if you can be glorified in this, I will do it.’” She thought that no amount of prayers would lead to a victory at the pageant, run by former winner Herme Sherry and her husband, Ken. Sproule’s performance belied that at the pageant in Surprise on March 18. She confidently moved from her piano to the stage for a flamenco dance to original music. For her efforts, she not only won Ms. Senior Arizona, but Most Photogenic, Most Elegant and tied for Best Philosophy with 63-year-old Mesa resident Shirlene Rutledge. More importantly, she earned a group of lifelong friends, including fellow contestant Bonnie Sisson, 72, of Scottsdale.

Longtime musician

Sproule was born in Tennessee and spent her formative years in Nashville. She attended Peabody College, which was absorbed into Vanderbilt University, and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in music and human resources, respectively. After graduation, she worked as a financial planner for nonprofits and schools.

Cameo Foundation aids domestic violence shelters BY CHRISTINA FUOCO-KARASINSKI When Herme Sherry was named Ms. Senior Arizona in 2004, she was asked what she planned to do during her reigning year. “I said, ‘I want to help somebody,’” Sherry says. She, in turn, created the Cameo Foundation, the beneficiary of the Ms. Senior Arizona Pageant. The Cameo Foundation originally raised funds for Alzheimer’s disease associations, but Sherry since has changed her focus to domestic violence shelters because, she said, the need is greater there. “We felt that cancer and heart disease and Alzheimer’s get national help, but domestic violence does not,” Sherry says. Sherry says now is the time to start talking openly about domestic violence. “When I grew up, it was a secret,” she says. “You didn’t talk about it. It still is, to a certain degree. Ladies need to know that they do have an option. They don’t have to stay. The children are frozen in fear. And shelters are struggling for funds to

keep the doors open.” The Cameo Foundation holds fundraisers throughout the year to raise monies for those shelters. Keep tabs on cameofoundation. org for a list of those events. This year’s Ms. Senior Arizona Pageant was held on March 18 at the Valley Vista Performing Arts Center in Surprise. For more information, call 602-788-9556.

choice to move back to Arizona,” Sproule says. “It wasn’t until I moved here that I picked up the piano again. It was God’s timing. I truly had not played the piano – only for a little bit – in 20 years.” Her church, Palm West Community Church in Sun City West, asked her to play piano as well. “I never played piano in church when they asked me to do that,” she says. “I had to start practicing again. John was grateful. He had not heard me practice. “I’m not sure I would have had the nerve to do the pageant if I hadn’t started playing piano again. I want to encourage other women to participate. It truly is a life-changing experience, win or not.”

“I loved helping people in the not-for-profit community,” Sproule says. “I always loved numbers and I put on my Ms. Senior Arizona Pageant bio that I have an interest in macroeconomics. There probably wasn’t anybody else who said that. “When I was growing up, and other kids were learning nursery rhymes, I was learning to never purchase a depreciating asset on credit. It took me a long time to learn what a depreciating asset was. I also learned very early on that if you save by the 10th, you can earn interest from the 1st. There’s 10 extra days of interest earned. It was natural for me to help teachers and not-for-profits.” Sproule was slow to appreciate Nashville’s vibrant country music scene. She loved Elvis Presley and eventually grew to enjoy singers like Carrie Underwood. Music, as a whole, inspired her, though. Sproule first sat down to the piano at The search is on for the Cameo Foundation’s 29th age 8 and it came easily to her. annual Ms. Senior Arizona 2018 contestants. “When it came time for college, of course I was going to Open to women ages 60 and older, the pageant is set major in music,” she says with a smile. “Peabody was right for 6 p.m. Saturday, March 17 at Valley Vista Performing there.

Quail Park at Oro Valley offers exceptional services SPECIAL TO LLAF When it comes to grand plans, they don’t get much bigger and better than the assisted living and memory care communities of Living Care Lifestyles. Since its inception in 1999, the senior lifestyles communities leader has opened facilities in California, Oregon, Texas and Washington. This year, Living Care Lifestyles broke ground on a new community in Oro Valley. Quail Park at Oro Valley, located at 9005 N. Oracle Road, will offer residents an array of amenities and layout plans among its 101 studio, 1-bedroom, and 2-bedroom units. The two-story community has a capacity for 110 residents and is scheduled to open in the summer of 2018. “This new community will provide exceptional living and health services for residents and offer peace of mind to their families,” Living Care Lifestyles CEO and president Denis Bryant said. The site encompasses 79,000-square-feet and features a flat roof, mixture of stucco and brick with intricate parapets. The community’s “H” plan configuration lends itself to the community’s central commons area, which is tailored to assisted living and memory care residents. There will be a bistro, dining room, “4-season” room, salon, living room, theater, chapel, activity room, library, TV room and a wellness suite with offices for exams and therapy.

Born in Massachusetts, Bourne ended up in the Arizona heat after his wife needed to live in a warmer climate. He quickly became a staple in the area and at the Lovin’ Life expos. He made an appearance at last year’s Oro Valley event and has also been a part of events in Mesa, Sun City and Phoenix over the years. While he likes staying current in his performances, it’s songs from the Great American Songbook that really get Bourne’s heart beating. With these classics in his set list, Bourne hopes he’s helping spread great melodies and lyrics to young fans, exposing them to songs they may not have heard. In addition to showing today’s youth a different side of music, he wants to just have fun with the audience he has set out to entertain. His mission statement simply reads, “To lift the spirits of those who I have the privilege of entertaining and to have an abundance of fun while doing so.” When he takes the stage in Oro Valley, he will be doing just that. Bourne will be performing a set every hour, starting at 10:10 a.m. For more information on his music and art, visit joebourne.com.

Home Care vs. Home Health: What is the difference? BY BOB ROTH

Managing Partner, Cypress HomeCare Solutions

There is a common misunderstanding by many that home care and home health care are one and the same. The difference is this: A “home care” (in-home personal care) agency provides caregivers who assist with activities of daily living, while “home health” is a medical service providing treatment and care for illnesses and injuries at home. The options for care and comfort are increasing as our aging population grows. Both home care and home health care agencies provide services that assist individuals and families with aging successfully at home. Unfortunately, the differences between these services and many others is not known or fully understood until the need arises. Home care and home health both encourage individuals to remain in the comfort of home as they age, but there are key differences you need to know so you can understand your loved ones’ needs – and yours – when the time comes.

Physical therapy is one of the services provided by home health.

HOME CARE

The goal of home care is to assist and empower an individual and their family to remain independent at home. Home care

providers accomplish this through care that is focused on the individual’s unique needs. Non-medical caregivers provide assistance with activities of daily living, which can include meal preparation, transportation, running errands, light housekeeping, medication reminders and, most important, companionship. The amount of care is directed by the care recipient, family members or a trusted advisor. In addition, the length of service is determined solely by these individuals, which provides additional flexibility for the family. Also, those who receive care are not required to be homebound, nor must they need medical eligibility or a physician’s order. Medicare is not a payment option for home care. Rather, recipients of home care services have the option of paying privately, through a long term care insurance policy, or through Medicaid, or in Arizona, the Arizona Long Term Care System (ALTCS) following a comprehensive application process.

HOME HEALTH

The goal of home health is to treat an illness or injury that will aid in regaining a person’s strength, independence and self-sufficiency. Some home health services include physical therapy, occupational therapy, wound care, speech therapy, IV support, injections and the monitoring of serious illnesses. Home health is more medically oriented, where clinicians (nurses, therapists, home health aides) are providing care (nursing, therapies, etc.) for the aging, infirmed and people recovering from injuries, illnesses or surgery. Unlike home care, home health requires a physician’s order and that the care recipient must be homebound. In addition, the length of service for home health is determined by the individual’s diagnosis and need, with visits occurring

HOME CARE AND HOME HEALTH WORKING TOGETHER

Home care and home health can also work together to care for individuals and their families. For instance, one of our clients at Cypress HomeCare Solutions who had been receiving our home care services for more than seven years began needing additional, medical-related care nearly 5 years ago. By introducing home health services, this client was able to avoid moving to a skilled nursing facility. The familiar surroundings of home provide the client, who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease, the ability to maintain a frame of reference while he is receiving both home care and home health care services. By joining forces, the home care agency and home health

provider can create an environment that promotes comfort and ensures peace of mind. The client recently passed away, and it is believed he lived longer and enjoyed a better quality of life because of the personalized care he received. Bottom line: Services provided in the home offer individuals and their families added comfort and reassurance that the care recipients and their loved ones can remain in their most comfortable surroundings. Val Halamandaris, president of the National Association of Home Care and Hospice, confirms that “the intervention of services at home makes it possible for people to live out their lives fully.” By understanding that home care and home health are available and knowing the differences in what they provide, it will be that much easier to be prepared for the future.

Healthy Aging

7 steps to better bones and a hearty heart BY LAURA GLENN

NMD at Rejuvena Health & Aesthetics

Eating well, exercising daily and drinking water seems to be the holy trinity of staying healthy, but after hitting the big 50, several other things should be kept in mind in order to age well. Any doctor’s main concern with patients nearing this big milestone is bone strength and heart health. If you’ve lived an active and healthy lifestyle, then these two areas might not be much of a concern, but it does not mean you should disregard them completely. According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information in the U.S. National Library of Medicine, one in two Americans over the age of 50 may be at risk for developing the bone disease osteoporosis, which renders bones brittle and weak. Osteoporosis is the most common cause of fractures, and the risk of fracture increases with age, particularly for women. An estimated four in ten women in the U.S. age 50 or older will experience a fracture sometime during the remainder of their lives. These fractures stem from inevitable accidents and falls that, at a younger age, might have seemed completely inconsequential. Similarly, the symptoms of heart disease

begin to manifest after age 50, so take caution to keep your ticker as strong as possible. Dr. Laura Glenn of Rejuvena Health & Aesthetics in Scottsdale explains the most important ways to maintain good bone density, strength and overall wellness. Following these seven steps in a solid routine can ensure your body stays as healthy as possible.

Step 1:

Eat a diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains. These ingredients can help protect your health, and specifically your heart.

Step 2:

Maintain good balance to prevent falls. Older adults should continue to exercise regularly and engage in exercises that work on balance skills (tai chi, yoga, etc.)

Step 3:

Getting enough sleep is vital at any stage. Those who don’t receive sufficient rest have a higher risk of obesity, high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes and depression. Sleep gives your body uninterrupted recovery time from the day’s stressors, so don’t skip it. Most adults need seven to nine hours of sleep each night.

Step 7:

Aging...continued from page 26 Step 4:

Older adults who have osteopenia (a condition in which the body doesn’t make new bone as quickly as it reabsorbs old bone) or osteoporosis need to be particularly mindful of ensuring appropriate (but not excess) calcium consumption from food and maintaining adequate Vitamin D levels. Remember: Milk is not the only source of calcium – green, leafy vegetables are a great source. Supplemental calcium can be beneficial, particularly calcium supplements that contain microcrystalline hydroxyapatite concentrate (MCHC).

Step 5:

Get regular screenings and tests to know exactly how your body is reacting to these changes. Testing blood pressure, cholesterol levels and for diabetes can let you know if you need to make changes and take action. Bone density scans should be done regularly in adults 65 and older, and can gauge how well treatment is working.

Step 6:

Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy in postmenopausal women also can help minimize further decline in bone density, but benefits only occur during treatment years and are not maintained when hormones are stopped. Consult with a medical professional about the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy.

This may seem obvious, but staying tobaccofree and moderating alcohol intake are crucial. Remember: With age, the body loses its ability to cope with these chemicals, which can result in much more serious health complications, including cancer. It’s important not to look at these tasks as chores, but as healthy habits instead. Keeping up with all of them can be the difference between living a happy and healthy life, or living in pain and being bed-ridden. Dr. Laura Glenn is a naturopathic physician at Rejuvena Health and Aesthetics in Scottsdale, specializing in women’s health, hormonal imbalances, fertility, fatigue, gastrointestinal conditions, autoimmune and chronic diseases. Her goal is to support the body’s ability to heal, and optimize function and wellness. For more information, visit werejuvenate.com.
