THE FRESH MARKET The deli at The Fresh Market has so much to offer. If you’re looking for a sandwich, then you must check out their many different rotisserie-style sandwiches.

Other sides available are baked beans, coleslaw, and more. 8 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

The sandwich is huge! I could only eat half and saved the rest for another meal. If you’re looking for something more than a sandwich, the deli also offers packaged Convenient Meals.

MY LAUGH LINES

F U T ’ N N N E Y! R A of aging solved with today’s cosmetic trea s e c n a y o n tments The an BY AMANDA BEAM

Dr. Tammi Cassis

Rhonda Harrison

RN, certified nurse injector for Dr. Al Knable and Associates in Dermatology in New Albany, Ind.

Dr. Leesa Richardson Board-certified physician and owner of The Vein Treatment and Aesthetic Center in Louisville

“You can’t stop the aging process, but you can slow it down and reverse some of the signs of it. It’s not a magic eraser. But even an improvement for a lot of people — that’s just what they want.”

12 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

START HERE:

Are you concerned with fine lines and wrinkles predominantly on your face?

Yes (next page)

Do veins showing through your skin bother you? Or would you like to reshape parts of your body?

As our bodies age, the chance of having visible veins in our hands, legs, and other areas increases dramatically. Richardson says that for less severe cases, sclerotheraphy (injecting a compound into the vein) might decrease veins’ appearance. Other types of more intensive measures are available for more severe cases.

Reshape my body, please!

“Even if someone just gets started on a good skin care regiment, they can prevent a lot of future damage to their skin. These minimally invasive procedures are far less costly than actual plastic surgery. Much of it is extremely affordable.”

D

No, I have other concerns

Board-certified physician and owner of Cassis Dermatology and Aesthetic Center in Louisville

“If the aging face or the aging body bothers you, then like anything else in life, you can set a budget and you can try and change what bothers you. If it doesn’t bother you, then don’t worry about it. Go and enjoy your life.”

o your deepening laugh lines have you stuck with a frown? With the advent of new technologies and products, inexpensive, non-surgical medical treatments are available to refresh and revitalize sun-damaged and aging skin. We consulted local leaders in cosmetic procedures to provide a basic guide to some of these treatments. Because everyone has unique needs and conditions, make sure to consult a board-certified doctor and staff to determine the right medical options for you.

My veins drive me nuts!

(( OUR CONSULTANTS ))

Are you worried about the jiggling and dimpling around your stomach, arms, or thighs that just won’t go away? Endermologie or cold sculpting might be something to look into. Cassis says her practice performs both. “You break up the bands that are basically giving the appearance of cellulite,” she says. “Your body will excrete that, and then you won’t have that sort of rippled look.”

My skin’s overall appearance

Are you mostly concerned with the overall appearance of your skin or specific areas?

No, something else

Yes

Are you troubled by facial areas that have lost volume, or would you like to tighten the skin under your chin?

Lost volume bothers me

If crow’s feet have been picking at your self-image, you might want to check out injectable neurotoxins such as Botox. Also used in other places such as between the eyebrows or on the forehead, results can be seen for up to six months. Cassis advises patients to make sure the neurotoxin used is FDA-approved.

My chin is the problem

Radiofrequency and heat treatments might help firm up what many women call a turkey wattle. Richardson offers a treatment called ReFirme that she says tightens skin. “We use it a great deal on the face and neck,” she says. “It helps with the dermal tissue and to build collagen. You get an immediate tightening.”

While more expensive than some treatments, injectable fillers provide longer-lasting results than other options. Cheeks and laugh lines can be smoothed and volume added by filling them with different kinds of FDA-approved products. Harrison also says thinning lips caused by aging can be resculpted with fillers.

14 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

A nightly solution

I’d like an inoffice treatment

Specific areas of my skin Are the fine lines or wrinkles in question produced by muscle contraction?

Get the best bang for your buck by incorporating the prescription drug Tretinoin, commonly known as Retin-A, into your skin care regiment. Independent scientific studies have concluded that skin improves after six weeks of use. “Tretinoin is handsdown the most cost-effective, results-producing product on the market,” Harrison says. “And that’s why it’s my goal to have almost every one of my patients who can tolerate it to be on it.”

Would you prefer a nightly topical solution or an inoffice treatment?

For an immediate exfoliating experience, consider a chemical peel. Doctors’ offices are able to offer higher percentages of active ingredients in these treatments than regular salons. Most work by peeling off the top layer of skin through a chemical process. Not only can wrinkles and fine lines be smoothed, but spots caused by age, acne, and sun can be diminished.

Connie’s World

W

hen I think of summer, I remember those “lazy, crazy, hazy” days when Nat King Cole crooned these lyrics in the background of my childhood. Summers seemed simple as a child in the ‘50s and ‘60s. No school meant staying up later and sleeping later. It also led to long days of playing until dark when we could catch fireflies and watch shooting stars you had no trouble seeing even in the city. As an only child, I loved playing with neighborhood friends, but I had no problem playing alone. I remember cutting out Patti Page paper dolls while baseball games blasted from the radio. My parents were huge fans, but I had no interest in the sport at all other than enjoying the familiar sound of the announcer’s play-by-plays, the whack of the bat, and the cheers that followed. The sound of baseball on the radio made me feel safe. The summers of my childhood were spent playing hopscotch on the sidewalk, even after dark under the streetlamp in front of our apartment building. I felt like I could run and play forever, or until my mother’s voice called me in for dinner. My parents moved to Old Louisville from a small country town outside of Glasgow, Ky., before I was born. The only vacations we ever took were to return to Knob Lick to visit relatives and cemeteries. Whenever I find myself at a cemetery today, it immediately evokes the smells of cut grass and fresh lemonade savored straight out of Mason jars. I didn’t meet most of my grandparents;

16 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

they had all died except for my mother’s father, and he died when I was 12. I knew my grandparents through the stories they left behind and the names carved on the cold tombstones of the tiny family plots. My parents went home often in the spring and summer to mow and tend the graves of their family members. While they worked, I played among the silent occupants with my cousins. We would read the strange names and make up stories about them. It seemed perfectly normal to hide among the trees and markers as our parents labored over their lost loved ones. It wasn’t until years later that I realized my summers were not like those of a lot of other people I knew. We never went anywhere else. We couldn’t afford a real vacation. I never saw the inside of a hotel or its accompanying swimming pool until after I married. My parents both learned to swim in the small creeks close to home growing up, but I don’t remember ever going to a pool with them. This is why I never learned to swim. When I finally went swimming with girlfriends later, my lack of ability really did not matter. By that time, all we were interested in was baking in the sun around the pool — innocent and ignorant, with no thought of skin cancer. In later years as I heard friends talk about exotic vacations to faraway places, I never

felt like I had missed out on all that much. Going to the country, chasing chickens, exploring caves, and discovering long-lost arrowheads seemed more fun than touring any resort city. I also had lots of cousins around my age to share in such delights. I always had trouble sleeping in the country because I missed the sounds of the city. But when the ink-colored country sky covered me like a shroud at night, I remember staring for hours at the millions of stars that shone like diamonds on display in the black backdrop of a jewelry store. For a child, there was no doubt those glorious stars were far more valuable than anything man-made. Summers have changed significantly since the warm days of my childhood. My parents have been gone for a number of years, and when I visit the cemetery now, I need a map to find them. I no longer cut my own grass, and the heat remembered from those days has since been turned off by air conditioning. I still have reminders of those long-ago summers when I play tennis or take walks in the neighborhood. I may not be chasing chickens, but as I chase the tennis ball, I do experience that childhood feeling of freedom that is always summoned by the carefree days of summer.

Make Doctor Visits Easier

BY AMANDA BE AM

“You need a good bedside manner with doctors, or you will get nowhere.”

— American novelist William S. Burroughs

There’s an APP for that! An apple’s ability to keep a doctor away is common knowledge. But with new appointment reminder apps now available for download on certain smart phones, an Apple device might actually help more people see their doctors at the correctly scheduled time.

Bug Me! Stickies Ink Notepad with alarm for iPhone or iPod by Electric Pocket • Price: $1.99

The Bug Me! app allows users to turn their phone’s home screen into their own virtual message board. Each yellow reminder can be set to an alarm programmed to sound at any time. Notices can also be sent to your phone’s wallpaper as visual reminders.

Doctors Appointment Reminder by iHealth Ventures, LLC • Price: $1.99

Similar to the Bug Me! app, the Doctors Appointment Reminder also records dates and times of physicians’ visits right in the palm of your hand. In addition to basic appointment-keeping and alerts, the app provides a customized field that can store essential medical information as well as a feature to jot down electronic notes. A voice memo function can also remind patients what was discussed at previous appointments.

hen taking a loved one to visit a physician, caregivers can feel the stress of readying an elderly person for a checkup. Cindy Boone, program director of the nonprofit ElderServe Home Care in Louisville, offers some advice to help doctor appointments take a turn for the better. First, Boone suggests timing the visit just right. Generally, midmorning between 9:30 and 10:30 is the best period for a senior to see a physician. This gives time for the caregiver to help the patient get ready. In addition, the earlier time will allow routine lunch and nap times to remain undisturbed. Transportation to the appointment might also be a concern for the caregiver, especially if the senior has difficulty walking. Doctors’ offices normally have wheelchairs nearby for those who need extra assistance. Usually, drivers can pull up to the door and get the patient inside before parking. It’s best to consult your medical provider before the visit to see what they can offer. Organizations such as Tarc3 Paratransit Service offer handicap-accessible transportation between home and the doctor for those confined to a wheelchair or who are unable to travel by car. Boone says to schedule these types of pickups well in advance of the upcoming appointment. Upon arrival, caregivers can ease worry about the visit just by talking to the patient. “If there is someone who can actually sit with the senior in the waiting room and talk to them, keep them calm, have

conversation with them and just don’t leave them sitting there alone, that’s going to make them feel more comfortable, and it’s going to keep them from getting nervous,” Boone says. You might need to help your loved one with filling out paperwork, such as by having your name added to the HIPAA form as someone the doctor can speak with about medical matters with your patient’s permission. And, since longerthan-anticipat- 21 MINUTES: ed stays in the The average waiting room time nationwide can occur, a patient bring any medi- spends waiting for a doctor’s cine, snacks, appointment. or drinks your — vitals.com loved one might need while she waits. As for time with the doctor, some seniors might not want to tell medical personnel about their health history. Some might fear their difficulties will prevent them from remaining in the home independently. Here, the caregiver can step in and keep the physician up to date on concerns or questions. Taking notes at the appointment can be helpful to make sure the patient has a written record of what transpired. Things to note include weight fluctuations, blood pressure readings, sugar levels, and medication changes. While medical visits can sometimes be hard pills to swallow, following these steps should make life a little easier for all involved. PAGE 20 >>

Caring for

AGING LOVED ONES BY LINDA HITT KEMPF, RN, LNHA

Q

What do families need to know before admitting aging loved ones to any care setting due to Alzheimer’s or related dementias, physical decline, or diseases requiring 24/7 care? — Joan

ADVANCED LOCAL POOL OPEN TO PUBLIC

N

othing says summer like a refreshing swim. But physical difficulties can often prevent seniors from taking a dip in traditional pools. Luckily, Louisville just happens to be home to one of the most advanced indoor pools in the nation at the Kay and Jim Morrissey Advanced Therapy Center. With funds donated by Louisvillians Kay and Jim Morrissey, the Home of the Innocents first built the pool to service the therapeutic needs of their children. Not long after its inception, the nonprofit organization decided to open the pool to members of the community in appreciation for their support. “It’s kind of our little way to say thank you to the community for all the things the people have done for the home,” says Advanced Therapy Center Director Mickey Baron. Always heated to 92 degrees Fahrenheit, the pool has numerous special amenities. Salt water instead of traditional chlorine allows for a gentler way to treat water. Likewise, the greater percentage of salt helps swimmers float. “Salt makes the water more 20 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

Pool times and entrance costs vary. Hours and fees are available at homeoftheinnocents.org/atc.

buoyant,” Baron says. “So if people might have an injury or have trouble in the water, it helps them to float better, to move better. And, salt water is softer on your skin.” The pool, which is only 4 feet deep, is handicap accessible with bars as well as places to take a rest. A type of floatable wheelchair can be used for patients who have a hard time getting around in the water. The pool’s dressing rooms are fully handicap accessible with bars and sitting showers. Inside the pool, colored lights shine peacefully through the waves, and music can be pumped to speakers under the water. Throughout the week, the center offers different aquatic classes that deal with conditions such as arthritis and Parkinson’s disease. Water aerobics and Pilates are also taught. Even without a class or therapy session, individuals and their caregivers can still stop by for some swimming fun.

When selecting the very best care, do it right the first time so you’ll never have to do it over. Only consider care settings licensed to provide all levels of care. This way, only your loved one’s room number changes if they move from one level of care to the next, but not all the familiar faces of their nurses, staff, and friends they’ve made. Change is not well tolerated with dementia. If a care setting is not licensed to provide“full service” to all residents, they must ask that your loved one be moved as soon as their care needs become more advanced.

WHAT I KNOW NOW

Harriette Friedlander

The retired CEO of ElderServe discusses raising twins, aging gracefully, and the best advice she ever got BY LUCY M. PRITCHETT / PHOTO MELISSA DONALD

What is the best advice you ever received?

How did you find your calling?

When the oxygen mask drops down, put it on yourself first. Be in the best shape you can be — physically, emotionally, and spiritually — or you cannot be useful.

For me, it has always been about fairness. It didn’t matter what the group was — Nazi victims, children with disabilities, the elderly. That ethic of treating people right has been my driving force.

What skill should every woman have?

Being able to manage her own money. When should a woman raise her voice?

When someone is in danger... a car is pulling out in front of you or a child is running into the street. On a community level, a woman should raise her voice when she knows that someone or some class of people — gay people or the elderly — are being abused. What advice would you give the younger you?

Worry less about what other people think of you. This attitude evolves as we age. When you are clear about who you are, you can be assertive without being aggressive. How do you respond to critics?

Internally, I may get very upset and defensive, but also I ask myself “Could they be right? Is the criticism factbased?” Externally, I try my best to be rational. I try to be responsive, not reactive.

What book made an impression on you?

I can think of two. One is fiction — The Red Tent by Anita Diament — that looks at the benefits of support and encouragement among women. The other is the nonfiction book by Malcolm Gladwell The Outliers. He writes that it takes 10,000 hours of practice on a specific task to become successful in that task. How do you know when it’s time to walk away?

When your piece of work is done. For me, the time came when I realized I needed to focus my energy on something else in order to go forward. What human characteristic is overrated?

Physical appearance. Sure, look the best you can, but this striving for physical perfection has led to adult anorexia and bulimia and teenagers having plastic surgery.

22 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

Harriette, 67, recently retired from ElderServe after 18 years with the community-based agency serving older adults in Louisville. What should every woman experience?

Making peace with her parents. Accept that they did the best they could and start to appreciate them. What do you understand about aging?

That it is a process and an integration... the sum total of everything we have done. You grow into yourself. (Laughs) I only wish it happened when we were younger. What motivates you now?

I love art, writing, and theater. I would like to help get Louisville designated as an AARP Age Friendly Community. And I want to be the best person I can be. I want to be in the world. How do you deal with difficult personalities?

I try not to react. I am quiet and let them do what they do. I pray for them, which helps me gain compassion for them. I ask myself, “Is there something I can do that would help?”

What does the average American not recognize?

How interconnected we all are. We get distracted as a country by small issues. Do we want to fight about it, or do we want to work together to solve the problem? What has been your greatest personal challenge?

Raising twin daughters who were born when I was 40. Sarah is an artist, and Rebecca is a writer. They are thoughtful, compassionate, spiritual young women, and I have learned a lot from them about finding my path. What has been your advice to them?

Get married late; get married once. How should a woman handle getting older?

Gracefully, with a smile on her face. Decide what is important to you — whether that be gardening, your skin and hair, your children — and embrace that.

Breathe Easy!

DE-STRESS WITH BREATHING YOGA Graylin Porter, owner of Yoga on Capitol Avenue in Corydon, Ind., wants people to slow down and notice the rise and fall of their chests. Pranayama yoga, or “the breath of life,” has been shown to provide numerous health benefits to practitioners, including increased relaxation and concentration, improved lung capacity, and a marked decrease in depression and stress. So lie back, relax, and breathe your cares away with a few simple steps.

1

Lie down with your chest elevated by either a pillow or rolled towel placed under the shoulder blades. Hands should be at your sides, palms facing up.

2

Close your eyes and take soft, deep breaths in for three counts and exhale for three counts. Try making the inhales and exhales the same length.

3

For beginners, repeat the even breaths for up to 10 counts. With practice, increase the repetition of breaths or the time between inhales and exhales.

– AMERICAN POET AND WRITER SYLVIA PLATH

Mind Over Matter Memory loss isn’t all in your head: According to livestrong.com, two out of three people over the age of 50 will experience some type of memory loss as they age. For most of his working life, Dr. Jonathan Cowan has been helping people remember. As president of Peak Achievement Training just up the road in Goshen, Ky., Cowan has developed brain-training products such as the Peak BrainHappiness Trainer, which retrains the brain by concentrating on focus, alertness, and awareness. The computer software and accompanying headband measure levels of brain activity, then produce a type of biofeedback that responds to the individual's memory needs. As an added bonus, many people also see improvements in their level of positive feelings. “You learn how to control your level and get better and better at producing these brainwaves,” Cowan says. “But you are really changing the brain system so that you’re training your brain in a different way. What happens is ultimately after a few sessions, you start to see improvements in your memory, in your feelings, in your single-pointedness of focus, and how well you can control your alertness.” Cowan says most people see changes after 12 to 18 sessions. Once users reach a point where they have “overlearned the system” and begin to function differently, they can begin to gradually taper off the two-days-a-week program. Currently, the cost of the system is steep (nearly $6,000), but discounts might be available for medical providers. For more information, contact Cowan by phone at 502.228.0605 or online at brainhappiness.com.

PROBLEM:

Bunions

When the big toe turns inward toward the other toes and the joint at the bottom of the big toe becomes enlarged, that protruding bony bump is called a bunion. Caused by genetic predispositions, years of squeezing into pointy shoes, or a combination of the two, bunions can be painfully irritated by tight footwear or even by the pressure put on the joint from walking.

PROBLEM:

Achy Joints

The most common cause of achy joints is arthritis, a painful swelling and stiffness of the joints. Dr. James Patrick Murphy, assistant clinical professor at the University of Louisville School of Medicine and Director of Murphy Pain Center of Southern Indiana, says joint aches might be due to degenerative arthritis as a result of injury or agerelated wear and tear, to autoimmune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, or, less commonly, to infections or certain drugs.

SOLUTION:

SOLUTION:

Conservative Treatments

Surgery

According to Dr. Vipul Patel of Bullitt County Foot & Ankle Center in Shepherdsville, Ky., conservative treatments for bunions include wider shoes, bunion splints that pull the big toe into alignment, bunion pads to protect against friction, pain medication and topical anti-inflammatory creams, and custom orthotics.

A surgical procedure can remove the bunion and permanently straighten the big toe. Depending on the severity of the bunion, recovery can entail four to five weeks in a surgical shoe without crutches or a couple of weeks in a cast with crutches. “But don’t wait too long if surgery is warranted,” Patel advises, since over time that big toe joint can drift further to the side, creating a hammertoe condition that might require additional surgery.

But these temporary solutions are only effective while they’re used.

SOLUTION:

SOLUTION:

Diet and Exercise

Medical Intervention

A healthy diet high in antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables can minimize joint inflammation. Some herbal remedies and fish oil supplements can also be beneficial, Murphy says, but consult your doctor before taking anything new.

Pain and inflammation can be controlled with overthe-counter and prescription drugs, but remember: “It’s important to first determine the origin of the arthritis because the treatment will be different depending on the cause,” Murphy says. Follow dosage guidelines carefully, since many of these medications can damage internal organs when misused.

Most importantly, joints need to keep moving in order to maintain their function, even through pain. Work with your doctor or physical therapist to find physical activities you can do, such as exercising in water to take some of the pressure off your joints.

When surgery is needed, options can vary from minor procedures that clean up cartilage or smooth off joint surfaces to outright replacement of the joint.

Budding Relationships Masonic Homes of Kentucky is proving that flowers aren’t the only seeds sprouting in the warm temperatures. Their Sproutlings Pediatric Day Care & Preschool, a part of their new Masterpiece Living Program, provides an environment for residents and children to learn from each other. The residents connect with children through activities that help them stay mentally sharp and tie in with the children’s curriculum.

Bring in the Harvest Residents at Presbyterian Homes of Louisville enjoy spending time in their garden where they are growing cabbage, lettuce, tomatoes, snow peas, green peppers, radishes, and herbs to be used for their meals. Raised planting beds have been included in the garden so that those who are more stable in a seated position can participate.

The saying, “The older, the wiser,” is about to be tested. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kentuckiana is teaming up with The Humana Legacy Program to build relationships between older adults and children while studying the effectiveness of intergenerational mentoring. Adults ages 55 and up are being recruited for the project. CONTACT: If you would like to volunteer, go to bbbsky.org.

The

WISDOM ELDERS of the

BY BOB MUELLER

In my work and ministry as a priest and now at Hosparus, I have had the daily joy of discovering the wisdom of the elders. So many folks of 80-plus years have taught me so much. I remember one 85-year-old grandmother who was known for her generosity — generous with her laughter, with her fabulous cherry pies, and with her time as a tutor to adults who couldn’t read. Every time I went to see her, she had given something else from her condo away — to the TV repairperson, to the mail carrier, to

the young girl from the apartment downstairs who was moving into her own place for the first time. Finally, I spoke up to her and said, “I am upset because I don’t want to see you with nothing left.” She sat me down and said, “Sweetheart, the key thing is timing. I would love to time it so that the day I die, I have nothing left.”

T This wise grandmother understood a profound truth: We can’t take anything with us when we die. In a sense, when we die, all that we have not given away dies with us unshared. All the smiles, all the laughter, all our capacity for empathy and compassion, even all our knowledge and wisdom. Giving everything away ensures that it, and we, truly live on, either in a grandchild who continues to bake our secret recipe for cherry pie, in a homeless person we will never meet who wears our winter coat, or in the woman who can read. A 91-year-old gentleman told me he used to work in Washington, D.C., as a garbage hauler, and their code was, “We don’t talk trash. We move it!” He told me that no contribution or bit of honest effort is too small. He said when he served in World War II that his motto was to “Keep calm and carry on.” He said his service taught him that duty is born of a sense of kinship with all humanity. One lady I knew until she reached age 99 taught me that life is like a spiral on which we must walk. She called it the “wisdom trail.” We keep circling the same issues over 36 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

and over, but we hope that, with wisdom, we’ll be at a different level the next time we encounter them. I thought about that when I first heard about the Buddhist theory of the three levels of generosity. The first level is tentative giving, where we’re not sure we want to give. Perhaps we have an old couch we’re thinking of giving to Goodwill, but we hesitate: “What if someday we need it?” In the end, we decide it’s okay to let go of the couch, and we experience freedom and happiness. That feels pretty good, we think. Maybe we’ll do it again. This realization makes it easier to walk along the spiral to the second level, which is brotherly or sisterly giving, a sharing of both ourselves and our resources as if to a loved one. With this kind of giving, instead of hesitation, we feel a sense of, “I have this, and you can have some, too.” We experience a sense of openness, friendship, and joy. The third level is royal giving, a highly developed sense of generosity where we take such delight in the welfare and happiness of others that we give the best of what we have, rather than just some of it.

This is where we put others first, not because we’re self-sacrificing, but because it feels great. The cherry-pie-making grandmother was at this level, and because she was living in touch with the inner state of abundance, she could feel comfortable giving everything away. We can’t vault to royal giving with the force of our will. Rather, as we walk the trail of our lives, attuned to the opportunities to give tentatively as well as feeling great compassion for ourselves whenever we feel withholding, we will trace an ever-expanding spiral of giving. Our hearts will open to their fullest and we will eventually rest, like kings and queens, in the abundance of spirit that is our true nature.

“Sweetheart, the key thing is timing. I would love to time it so that the day I die, I have nothing left.”

TAKING MEDS CAN CAUSE UNEXPECTED DANGERS IN THE HOT MONTHS. HERE’S WHAT TO WATCH FOR

BY LYNN HARRELSON

D

uring the coming summer months, most of us will generally take things a little easier. After all, we have heard the song, “hot summer time and the living is easy.” But we should be serious in the coming months about medications, the sun, the heat, and staying healthy. DEHYDRATION One of the biggest problems frequently seen during summer is dehydration, a lack of fluids needed to properly maintain body function. During the warmer months, we lose more of our body’s fluids by simple evaporation. If we do not drink adequate fluids, the volume of blood in our sys-

40 todaystransitions.com | Summer 2013

tem is smaller, and gravity causes this smaller volume of blood to accumulate in the lower parts of our body. Some people will experience lightheadedness or a racing heart, which may be caused by the heart trying to pump against a smaller volume of fluid. Sufficient fluids are also needed to keep the kidneys and cardiovascular system in proper function and to assure more regular bowel and bladder habits. The results of “water pills” or diuretics can be more profound during the summer months. Also, constipation normally caused by lack of fluids can worsen. Everyone is encouraged to con-

sume more fluids in the summertime. Should you experience lightheadedness or rapid heartbeats, consider these conditions serious and contact your health care provider. Report the amount of fluid you consume daily when you experience these conditions and if your condition improves when you drink additional fluids. ALLERGIC REACTIONS Some individuals might experience allergic reactions when using topical medications, especially in the sunny summer months. There are two groups of medication-induced photosensitivity: photoallergic reactions and phototoxicity. PAGE 78 >>

Start a Healthy Habit

By ALISSA HICKS

The benefit of exercising and eating right is a no-brainer, but finding the motivation to live a healthier lifestyle is easier said than done. Here’s an idea: think about joining Catch Healthy Habits, an intergenerational program that encourages older adults and kids to get fit. As a volunteer, you will work with a child who is in an after-school or summer program for an hour for a total of 25 sessions. Each session includes 30 minutes of physical activity, a nutrition lesson, and a healthy snack. Since implementing the program, 62 percent of children and 88 percent of adults aged 50+ met or exceeded the CDC’s recommended physical activity standards while both groups have

increased their consumption of fruits and vegetables as well as exercise. With the program implemented in more than 130 locations across 14 states, more than 7,000 volunteers participated in the 2011-2012 year alone. Catch Healthy Habits is based on the Coordinated Approach to Child Health, which is a nationally recognized physical activity and nutrition curriculum. The program also works alongside the national Let’s Move! campaign and the National Institute for Out-of-School Time.

Visit their website at catchhealthyhabits.com to find a coordinator in the Louisville area and get started volunteering today.

Take a Tai Chi class, watch a movie or join a book club. You can sign up for all of these activities — and more — at the Humana Guidance Center. As an ongoing effort to increase people’s overall well-being, their Guidance Centers offer free classes that help improve both mental and physical health. The centers also create a sense of community, allowing people to build new friendships and become more involved with people who share similar interests. The program began in November 2011 and has grown extensively. Participants are more motivated when they stay active by using pedometers to track progress and take walks in local parks with others in the group.

While activities vary by locations, a full calendar list of events for all seasons can be found at the Human Guidance Center in Louisville. While offering free classes and activities, the Humana Guidance Centers now offer a chance to become a VIP. Being happy and healthy can make you a winner in multiple ways with the new Guidance Bucks reward program. You can receive up to 10 Guidance Bucks if you participate in certain activities at the center or bring a friend. Use your Guidance Bucks to bid on themed baskets which are featured at the monthly parties. Find out more on events and how you can become involved by contacting Hillary Harlow at 502.479.6581 or stopping by the Guidance Center located at 1918 Hikes Lane.

Sunny Stats: • The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that up to 90% of skin changes associated with aging are really caused by a lifetime’s exposure to UVA rays. • Choose a sunscreen with broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. Sunscreen with added vitamin A, vitamin D and vitamin E benefit mature skin’s health. • The SPF factor in sunscreens rates how effective the sunscreen is in preventing sunburn caused by UVB rays. If you’d normally burn in 10 minutes, SPF 15 multiplies that by a factor of 15, meaning you could go 150 minutes before burning. • Contrary to what you might think, the higher the SPF, the smaller the increased benefit. SPF 30 isn’t twice as strong as SPF 15. While SPF 15 filters out 93% of UVB, SPF 30 filters out 97%, only a slight improvement. • Counter mature skin’s dryness with water-based sunscreens or chemical-free sunblock alternatives. Sources: webmd.com, ehow.com

Various agents, including drugs, perfume, cosmetics, and even the sunscreen that is meant to protect your skin can cause photoallergic reactions. About 1 percent of the population might show signs of this type of reaction, which can worsen over time with continued use. Skin reactions might occur to areas not exposed to the sun, which may cause you not to think of the items used on your skin as the reason for the reaction. Two medications widely known for this type of reaction are topical tetracycline and some sulfur based products. The more common phototoxicity includes sunburn, redness, or other reactions caused by any chemical, not just medications. This reaction is often immediate, usually within 24 hours after starting a medication or using a chemical and being exposed to the sun. Phototoxic symptoms include severe redness and swelling on the areas of the skin exposed to light and the reddened skin peeling off. Phototoxic reactions are often described as an exaggerated sunburn with severe tenderness. For this reason, during the sunny months, it is important to ask your health care providers about being out in the sun when starting a new medication. A vast array of medications might cause this response; a few well-known examples are amiodarone, sulfur compounds and tetracyclines, thiazide diuretics, and some medication for blood sugar.

OVERHEATING Some medications also alter the body’s response to heat and humidity. Such drugs as haloperidol and thioridiazine can cause you not to sweat. Your body’s release of heat is suppressed, and you can overheat or experience heat stroke. PREVENT IT Each of us reacts differently to the sun, medications, and other chemicals. Reactions are often dependent on the dose and duration of medication. In addition, the frequency, length, and intensity of sun exposure can alter how you react. Preventing reactions caused by the use of certain medications is the same as preventing sunburn. Avoid prolonged sun exposure if you have experienced a reaction to the sun when taking medications. Your risk of photosensitivity is dependent on the medication, dose used, and your skin damage potential (Individuals with fair skin and freckles many have more problems). Good prevention also includes discussing the need to avoid sun exposure, wearing protective clothing and hats, and using sunscreen. Tanning beds should be avoided. Take extra precaution when new medications are started. Use care to prevent overheating from sun exposure, exercise, or hot weather. Wear cool clothes and keep a cool, non-alcoholic beverage handy. Enjoy the sunny months. Just know the medications and other chemicals you use, know what you might need to watch for, and take the precaution to have more fun in the sun.

It’s Your Style

WEAR THIS!

Dressing for your age isn’t about wearing dowdy clothing and unattractive shoes for the sake of comfort.

BY TIFFANY WHITE PHOTO MELISSA DONALD

F

ashion consultant Chris Fulkerson of VIP Studio (vipstudioonline.com) shows you how to bring your personal style to life without sacrificing sophistication.

MODELS: Lisa Workman, 63, and Harold Workman, 65 A jacket that has one large button instead of many smaller buttons is easier to fasten if you have arthritis or joint pain.

Always choose color. “Pink, orange, or green are playful, lighthearted colors that make you look and feel younger,” Chris says.

Three-quarter length sleeves make you look taller and slimmer.

Harold, who is newly retired, wore business attire every day and likes the idea of incorporating dressier jackets into his wardrobe. This jacket also can be worn with jeans. Boot cut pants make your hips look smaller.

Try cowboy boots. Their low heel makes them more comfortable, and they’re stylish.
