FROM THE EDITOR

Age is Not an Excuse to Sit

T

hree years ago, I ran in the Irish Classic 10K held at E.P. Tom Sawyer State Park, because I wanted a fitness challenge. It is a grueling course that involves running on gravel, pavement, and through trails with steep inclines. Although it is tough, I keep running it and improving my efforts, and I would love for you to join me this year on March 16. (Find more details at secure.kentucky.gov/formservices/parks/IrishClassic.) The level of energy I had to expend to keep up with the other runners surprised me, but my amazement grew when I noticed the number of older runners who were participating — and may have passed me. This reminded me that age is not a factor in achieving physical strength and endurance. Athletic competition isn’t only for the young. In this issue, we feature four Kentucky Senior Games competitors — ranging in age from their 50s up to their 80s — whose athletic accomplishments might inspire you to increase your level of physical activity (p6). If sports competitions aren’t your thing, find a workout you love and do it. Take a 10-15 minute walk through your neighborhood, join Silver Sneakers, a free fitness program for seniors, or participate in a dance class. Find out more about dance classes on page 22. Exercising regularly is one of the simplest ways of improving your quality of life. Don’t succumb to the notion that age keeps you out of the game. Instead get in the game and play hard.

TRIATHLON <<PAGE 6

THE ATHLETIC MULTITASKER

Bob Hobbs CEO, Louisville Lifestyle Medicine Age 53 Bob Hobbs’ fascination with sports began when he watched the Hawaii Ironman as a child. He and friends who lived in his neighborhood would have their own version of the Olympics, and by age 14, Bob had already participated in his first t iathlon. Since then, he has competed in four Ironman events and 60 triathlons. “I’ve always enjoyed this [triathlons], because it wasn’t one single sport, and it was much easier on the body,” he says. Bob says another benefit of t iathlons is that — unlike some other sports — there are no age restrictions. Plus he can continue to nurture his competitive spirit. He came in second place at the National Senior Games in 2017 and says that eating a plant-based diet helps him perform at the highest level.

“When you take care of the smaller things, the bigger things will take care of themselves.”

The night before a race, Bob eats a hefty salad containing black beans, chickpeas, avocados, cranberries, strawberries, blueberries, carrots, radishes, and cucumbers. “If you eat healthier, it allows you to have a stronger engine inside of you. It allows you to do more training, which makes you faster.” And, when the competition gets tough, Bob says he thinks about the philosophy of Deepak Chopra, which is based on staying present in the moment. Rather than visualizing himself crossing the finish lin , Bob focuses on specific fa tors that will determine the fina outcome of the race. “[I] start paying attention to the really small things. ‘Where is your foot placed when you’re running? Where are your arms when you’re on your bicycle? What is your form when you’re swimming?’ When you take care of the smaller things, the bigger things will take care of themselves.”

RUNNING <<PAGE 8

GETTING BACK ON TRACK

Timothy Jenkins Age 67 In 2010, Timothy Jenkins found salvation on a running track after being homeless for 40 years. “I wanted to walk away from the drugs and alcohol so I started exercising [at the Southwest YMCA and the Louisville Athletic Club] and became involved in homeless ministries. I asked God what I was training for and he said, ‘You need to run.’” Timothy spent a year training for the competition that would turn his life around: he lost 40 pounds, signed up for the Kentucky Senior Games in 2018, and became a record-breaking sprinter. He broke the Kentucky state record in the 50-meter race and finished in se ond place in the 100-meter race, which earned him two gold medals.

“God wanted me to do this... and give other homeless people hope...”

Timothy’s achievements qualified him for the National Senior Games this year, which will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico, June 14-25. It’s a huge accomplishment considering that it was the first time he ompeted in any sport, but for Timothy, competing is about more than winning medals. He is using his experience as a platform for bringing attention to the problem of homelessness in our country. “God wanted me to do this as a homeless person and give other homeless people hope that they could come back and do something special in their lives,” he says. Timothy is excited about his upcoming competitions and has set goals for what he would like to accomplish on and off the t ack. “I am going to break the 50 meter record at the nationals and win two gold medals, and I would like to start a foundation that would help get [homeless] people off the st eets immediately and give them the help they need directly.”

SHE’S MAKING WAVES

Norah Kute Early Childhood Diagnostician, Jefferson County Public Schools Age 62 Norah Kute first participated in the National Senior Games held in California while visiting her sister who lives in the area. Norah, who was 50, became interested in the prospect of competitive swimming and registered to compete in the event along with three of her siblings. Twelve years later, she has kept the momentum going with her participation as a swim competitor in the Kentucky Senior Games and has won three medals in the 2017 National Senior Games.

“I am more in competition with myself ... to just go out and do the best I can.”

Norah says her motivation comes from knowing that she must set goals for herself, and she likes the camaraderie that develops between her and the other competitors. “It makes you set a goal, and I don’t expect my times to improve, but I like for them to stay kind of close. It’s a measure of your progress over time, and it is great fun to meet the other swimmers that come from across the state and then from all over when you go the nationals. There are some great role models for teaching you how to stay active as you become older.” Although winning competitions is gratifying, Norah says she isn’t a competitive person. “I am more in competition with myself...to just go out and do the best I can. I would encourage anyone who likes a sport to find out if the e is any way they can participate in the senior games. Competition is not first and oremost. It is about staying active.”

DECATHLON <<PAGE 12

KING OF DECATHLONS

Ron Chilton Retired radio broadcaster, WAKY Age 83 Ron Chilton hates idleness but loves an athletic challenge. For 21 years, he has been competing in multiple track and field sports as part of the Kentucky Senior Games, but his level of endurance is incredible. He participates in the shot put, discus, the 50, 100, 200, and 400 meter races; long jump; hammer throw; and 1,500 meter race walk. He won 10 gold medals in the Kentucky Senior Games last year, but has 550 medals in total. “I decided when I retired that I didn’t want to sit on the porch and rust away. I didn’t want to collect stamps or do something mundane,” he says. Ron has no intentions of slowing down and plans to compete in the National Senior Games this year. “Getting old is not a matter of atrophy of your muscles or getting a disease. It is a lack of exercise. I’ve met so many people in my age category who say they don’t do anything but sit on the couch and watch television or play with their phone, and I think that is deplorable,” he says. Every morning, Ron runs one mile, and he does a full body workout at Louisville Athletic Club three to four times a week, which includes using an elliptical machine, free weights, and bench presses. Knowing that there are other seniors who are active in sports fuels Ron’s motivation, and he says he is looking forward to competing in his 90s. Ron describes himself as a high achiever who pushes hard to win. “I remember that there was a gentleman from Owensboro or Hopkinsville and he had a lot of publicity about how he always pushed through — this was several years ago — and we were competing in the 220, and coming down to the last 50 yards I started feeling the burning sensation, because I was really trying to beat him and I thought: ‘Am I going to give in? Am I going to relinquish this lead?’ And then I noticed that he gave it a little more and he passed me, and in the last 10 yards I said, ‘It’s now or never. He’s not going to beat me,’ and so I beat him by two tenths of a second.”

WHAT HIS DAY LOOKS LIKE

A

ging doesn’t have to mean slowing down or stopping what you love, and it doesn’t appear that Dr. Peter Salerno will ever put on the brakes. At 85, he’s full of more life and energy than many people half his age. He’s attempted to retire three different times but just couldn’t bring himself to do it. “I really like being a part of our society and being able to contribute positively,” he says.

Getting up three mornings a week to work at Old Louisville Counseling Center keeps Dr. Peter Salerno active.

<<PAGE 16

Peter has contributed to society in many ways. He was born in Newark, New Jersey, and moved to Louisville in 1957 to attend the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary, where he became an ordained minister. He was a chaplain in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. Upon his return to the states, he enrolled at the Menninger Foundation in Topeka, Kansas, and studied to become a trained clinician. He participated in the Civil Rights movement and marched with Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in Frankfort, Kentucky, during the late 1960s. In 1979, he opened the Old Louisville Counseling Center, and 40 years later he still works there three days a week. Peter relishes having a schedule to follow as it motivates him and gives him daily purpose. “I like the fact that I have to get up early every morning,” he says. “My practice creates an external driver for me. I have to study, look at my day’s activities, and look at what I’ll be working with.” On business days Peter rises at 6am and has a light breakfast of eggs or granola with a cup of cappuccino. Reading is part of his morning routine, poring over professional journals that will assist him in his work. Other mornings he reads novels by authors such as John Grisham, and he enjoys the works of American theologian and philosopher Paul Tillich and Austrian-born Israeli Jewish philosopher Martin Buber. Exercise plays an important role in Peter’s life. Weather permitting, he heads to the Ohio River and goes rowing each week and other times he’ll go to the YMCA to swim. “Swimming is the fountain of youth,” Peter says. “There’s no doubt in my mind that if you want to stay healthy and want longevity in your life, you should swim.” Peter engages in other daily and weekly practices that keep him in good physical and mental health. On work days he drinks nine or 10 glasses of warm water, explaining it’s an old Chinese remedy that helps to clear the throat. “Vaudeville people would do it before they went on stage, and Ronald Reagan would do it before he made a speech,” Peter says. Two years ago, he began taking music lessons to learn how to play the mandolin. “I wanted to do it to keep my brain going, to keep it sharp,” he explains. 18

Day

In My Life Dr. Peter Salerno What time does your work day begin, and end? I begin my work day at 9am and generally don’t end until 7 or 8pm. I go all day, pretty much, without a break.

Peter starts his day with a breakfast of granola and fruit.

Playing his mandolin is another way for Peter to stay active and engaged.

What type of music do you listen to? It’s eclectic. I like to listen to opera or the older music, like Nat King Cole. I also like listening to the news on NPR. What places do you like to visit in Louisville? We have wonderful restaurants in Louisville, and I like to visit our libraries. We also attend concerts by the Louisville Orchestra. Do you ever do any writing or journaling? I do have a journal, but I don’t write in it every day. What do you like to do before you go to bed? I will read or play Sudoku.

Peter is a member of the Louisville Rowing Club and was a nationally recognized rower.



Don’t Avoid It — Deal With It Strategies for managing your diabetes the right way.

B

By Carrie Vittitoe

eing diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes can be a serious health setback because it is a disease that, if not well-managed, could have life-threatening consequences. While diet and lifestyle changes are necessary in diabetes management, diabetes doesn’t mean you have to run marathons and swear off your favorite dessert for life. MANAGEMENT

Physicians recommend that prediabetic and diabetic patients make changes to their diet and exercise routines in the management of the disease. According to Dr. Lesley Kellie, an internist with Norton Community Medical Associates-Mallard Creek, diet and exercise are the first line of care, but physicians realize that “lifestyle changes are easier said than done, and it takes a while for a change of habits to happen.” If a patient has very high blood sugar levels or other complicating factors, such as heart disease or high blood pressure, Dr. Kellie may put a patient on prescription medicine, typically metformin, in conjunction with diet and exercise. “Metformin has been a first line diabetes medication for many years,” she says. After being diagnosed, patients will typically meet with a nutritionist or nurse navigator, who can explain in detail the changes that need to be made to their diet and how/when to take medication. Physicians usually want to see patients every three months to keep tabs on their blood sugar levels as well as support habit changes. However, Dr. Kellie says some patients are able to lower their blood sugar levels with just diet and exercise, and if this happens, they may be able to go six months between doctor visits. 20 Spring 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

THE DANGERS OF POOR DIABETES MANAGEMENT

High blood sugar can negatively impact many parts of the body. Dr. Kellie says diabetes impacts the body at the cellular level, which causes narrowing of and blockages in the arteries, resulting in not only heart disease but circulation problems. Diabetes patients’ feet and legs are examined during office visits to ensure wounds heal properly and numbness doesn’t occur. Diabetes puts patients at higher risk for both fungal and bacterial infections, including pneumonia, which is one of the reasons physicians urge diabetic patients to get vaccinated against the flu virus every year. Dr. Kellie says diabetes is even associated with depression. The microbes in the gut are impacted by high sugar levels, which then impact the production and usage of neurotransmitters in the brain. She encourages her patients to eat a Mediterranean-type diet, which is rich in fruits, vegetables, and complex carbohydrates. Such a diet is not only good for blood sugar levels, it also enhances the diversity of the gut microbiome.

MAKING DIET AND EXERCISE CHANGES DO-ABLE

Dr. Kellie says a common misconception about dietary and exercise changes is that they have to be monumental in order to make a difference. She often encourages her newly diagnosed diabetes patients to decrease the proportion of sugary foods and drinks they consume by half to begin. After they have done this for a while and have adjusted, she then encourages them to reduce their sugar intake again. Patients often think they have to hit the gym every day in order to see changes in their blood sugar levels or waistline, but Dr. Kellie says even five-minute increments of exercise a few times a day adding up to 30 minutes is beneficial. Patients who have back problems or difficulty standing or walking can exercise in a sitting position. Dr. Kellie suggests seated marches or arm curls to increase a patient’s heart rate to help burn glucose.

Don’t Let Parkinson’s Slow You Down

F

or anyone with a neurological disorder, exercise is so important. Yet joining mainstream fitness classes can be — well, not a good fit. Fortunately, there are several classes in the area designed specifically for persons with movement disorders. The YMCA of Greater Louisville is partnering with the University of Louisville Movement Disorders Clinic to provide a “Pedaling for Parkinson’s” exercise program. The program, started in April 2018, offers people with Parkinson’s disease a safe outlet for regular exercise in one of the most effective ways possible: pedaling a bicycle. “There’s research that shows pedaling helps with movement and can improve symptoms,” says Kathy Mullaney, a Pedaling for Parkinson’s instructor at the YMCA at Norton Commons. “We keep the music low in class because there’s lots of conversation going on. People share names of doctors, talk about the latest research, and all kinds of things.” Fast pedaling is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease, but research conducted at the Cleveland Clinic showed a 35 percent reduction in symptoms from the simple action of pedaling a bicycle at a rapid pace. Mullaney says participants with Parkinson’s can also bring a caregiver or support person to class with them. The first 30 minutes are spent riding a stationary bike, and the final 25 minutes are spent stretching, doing push-ups against a barre, and exercising with a ball. “All of the participants are amazing and really inspiring,” Mullaney says. “And they work out really hard.” If you are interested in signing up for one of the classes held on Tuesdays, Thursdays, or Saturdays, contact Karen Wyatt at kwyatt@ymcalouisville.org or at 502.222.9358. You also can find out about other participating branches at ymcalouisville.org. Participants must be 30-75 years old and diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. The first three classes are free with a physician’s referral, then $40/month for three months (includes Y membership). LOOKING FOR MORE CLASSES IN YOUR AREA?

Is your

Trash or Treasure? By Emily Gahafer Photos Melissa Donald

W

hether you’re decluttering, downsizing your home, or helping a loved one plan her estate, it’s important to know the value of what you have. It’s easy to throw out damaged or old items and sell excess furniture and appliances online, but what should you do with more valuable jewelry pieces? Luckily, there are several companies in Louisville to assist with appraisals and purchase of both fine and costume jewelry, as well as customization options to restore and repurpose sentimental pieces. Ashley Davis of Davis Jewelers, specializing in fine jewelry, and Judy Champion of 2023 Vintage Shop, specializing in costume jewelry, offer a few tips on the following pages for sorting through your jewelry.

Separate Fine vs. Fashion Jewelry

STEP

First and foremost, separate your entire collection into two categories: fine jewelry pieces (gold, platinum, or silver and set with real diamonds) versus fashion or costume jewelry (sterling silver, gold and silver plated, brass, and other materials and set with rhinestones). Set aside any pieces you are unsure about into a separate category for guaranteed appraisal. Determining whether to keep or sell costume jewelry often depends on the designer, quality of the piece, and age of the piece. According to Judy Champion, a quality piece of costume jewelry includes soldered-on pins, posts, and clasps that create one consistent piece and individually, hand-set prongs for stones. Some features of a possibly valuable piece of costume

jewelry include unusual stones like the aurora borealis, which produce a rainbow-colored sparkle, and brooches with an animal motif such as bees, horses, or elephants. Some popular designers and brands include Miriam Haskell, Weiss, Ciner, and Bakelite. Judy advises customers to look for markings on their costume jewelry — “925” indicates the piece is sterling silver and “GF” for gold filled. “Bakelite is a plastic that was created in the early 1900s for more utilitarian purposes like electrical appliances, light switches, and toaster handles,” Judy says. “During the Great Depression they turned it into jewelry and sold it at the dime store for a dollar or two. Now it is extremely collectable and something that many people would probably overlook when cleaning out their jewelry. You may think it’s just a piece of plastic, but a simple bangle can sell here for $35 and some up to $750.” PAGE 28>>

Treasure Your Treasures Clasp and lay necklaces fl t or hanging in a jewelry box. If storing in a bag leave a bit of the chain out to prevent knotting. You can also purchase jewelry boxes and bags with

an anti-tarnish component built in. "As far as cleaners go, the jewelry cleaner that any jewelry store sells or provides free of charge is going to be best," Ashley says. Fine

jewelry pieces and watches should be cleaned and inspected by a certified je eler every six months. Judy says, “Never put costume jewelry in jewelry cleaner as it darkens

the foil backing on stones, thereby losing sparkle. It could also loosen glued stones. A jeweler's polishing cloth for silver is good for shining costume as well as sterling jewelry.”

STEP

Decide What to Keep, Donate, Pitch, or Pass on to a Loved One

Once you have made these distinctions and know what you have, decide which pieces you definitely want to keep. It is important to keep a few staple pieces that will go with any outfit for any occasion.These pieces will stand the test of time and often become family heirlooms. “Every woman needs a few staple pieces,” Ashley Davis says. “First is a diamond pendant, whether it is a solitaire, a cross, a heart, whatever you like. Next would be diamond studs or many times diamond hoops and a diamond tennis bracelet. As for hands, that is typically a bridal set, or if you’re not married, then a beautiful right hand ring or sentimental piece. Strive to hit those major points on the body like the neck, hand, ear, and wrist.” Anything you are not in love with, decide whether to donate it to a worthy cause, pass on to a loved one, scrap the material for money, throw away, or appraise to sell.

Gettting Ready to Sell Louisville is lucky to be STEP home to several trusted sources for appraising and selling what Ashley calls “previously enjoyed” jewelry pieces. Davis Jewelers charges a starting price of $75 to conduct appraisals on any type of fine jewelry. Price depends upon the number and types of pieces. The appraisers are also happy to conduct estate appraisals for clients who are working with family to fairly divide the assets of an estate. “You do not necessarily need to have an appraisal to sell your pieces,” Ashley says. “If someone tried selling their pieces on their own, then most people will request an outside, third party to state what the 28

Spring 2019 / TodaysTransitions.com

piece is and the current retail value. This is not necessarily just an assessment of retail replacement value, but often more of a liquidation value. We can look at the piece to determine what competitive, secondary market buy amount you should ask for.” According to Ashley, Davis Jewelers is typically most interested in purchasing the center stones from engagement rings that match the size, shape, and quality that they typically sell, as well as purchasing certain watch brands like Rolex. While the jewelers will conduct appraisals, they typically refer clients to other local jewelry stores to sell their pieces. To provide a selling option for clients, twice per year Davis Jewelers hosts an in-store event where a third party jeweler is on site to purchase pieces and offer clients payment on the spot.

As for costume jewelry, Judy with 2023 offers customers the option to sell previously owned costume jewelry. “I do not do written appraisals of costume jewelry, but I will speak to people about their items if they need information about age, value on the open market, and more,” Judy says. “An appointment is advisable for selling if there are a lot of items. Many individuals are surprised at what I offer them because it can be much more than they thought the ‘junk’ jewelry was worth.” While Judy does not deal in solid gold and other precious metals, she will offer customers several local options such as Nussbaum Antiques for selling fine jewelry pieces.

“CARING AND CLEANING REALLY DEPENDS ON THE PIECE . . . FOR EXAMPLE, PEARLS CAME FROM A LIVING, BREATHING ORGANISM, SO TREAT THEM AS IF THEY ARE LIVING. THE BEST WAY TO CLEAN THEM IS TO JUST WIPE THEM DOWN WITH A WET CLOTH." — ASHLEY DAVIS

g Repurposin Vintage Jewelry with Emily Maynard s of Elva Field

Emily Maynard focuses on using vintage and antique materials to create personal jewelry creations for the modern woman. “Elva Fields designs are fun, statement-making, one-of-a-kind, and not for the faint of heart,” Emily says. How do you find vi tage pieces for your art? “The treasure hunt is my favorite part! I love antique malls, fle markets, estate sales, and even garage sales for finding reat vintage materials.”

What kinds of pieces do you create? “Most of my jewelry takes the form of necklaces that feature repurposed components, like a 1950s jeweled brooch at the side of colorful gemstone beads, or a collection of vintage African glass beads clasped by a 1920s rhinestone buckle.” What is your creative process like? “I used to create sketches of each design, but after 15 years, the process is much more intuitive and hands-on. I like to have a supply of beads and vintage materials on hand, and eventually everything is laid out on the design table and moved around until I find an asso tment that appeals to me.” Do you do custom work? “I adore custom designs! So much so that I created a product on our website called 'What's In Your Jewelry Box?' It's a mailin kit for people to send us their heirloom or vintage jewelry so we can work together to create a fresh design with the piece. Whether it's a brooch of your great aunt's that you love or a set of costume pearls from childhood, I love collaborating with customers to give new life to their old jewelry.”

Repurposing Jewelry Pieces Once you have assessed the pieces STEP you own and sold what you don’t want, you may have a few outlying sentimental pieces. These pieces are often out of style, could be damaged, or just don’t fit your personal style. Davis Jewelers offers custom jewelry service for clients interested in repurposing these types of sentimental pieces. “We conduct a one-hour design and discovery consultation to determine what the design will look like,” Ashley says. “I think a lot of people feel that the word ‘custom’ means it’s going to carry this huge premium and be really expensive. However, I like to remind people that in the end if they’re providing the stones then they’re just paying for metal, labor, and a little bit for customization. We know the importance of creating beautiful, sentimental jewelry in a way that breathes new life into your meaningful pieces.”

COLOR YOUR HOME

Colors can affect our moods and might stimulate us or calm us. Think of red and the energy it brings, the serenity brought on by the color blue, or the clean, crisp feeling of white. Consider the colors that surround you, specifically in your own home. It is possible to add colors to your home that bring about a feeling of tranquility or that lift your mood and energy. Bailey Pitts, owner of Bailey at Home and Liz Toombs, owner of PDR Interiors, have just the right colors in mind to make this magic happen.

Colors such as red, bright pink, orange, and yellow, Liz says, are “known for livening up a space and mentally firing us up.” She adds, “These shades are naturally energetic colors when used in their highest saturation.” If you prefer to keep your wall color neutral, Liz suggests incorporating these colors into your fabrics and accessories.“They can pack a good punch without overtaking the room.”

For a calming space, Liz says colors such as blue, green, cream, gray, and lilac are great choices. “Sticking with a shade of these colors that is muted — have a gray undertone, but aren’t pastel — will create a serene space for you to enjoy. Paint, fabrics, or accessories are all great ways to incorporate these relaxing hues.”

k “Items such as greenery and soft-colored artwork can also be added to rooms to bring about a sense of calmness,” Bailey says.

TECH TALK

4 Ways to Learn Basic Tech Fast

I

f tweets and streaming and airdrops sound like essential vocabulary for hikers, you may be on the wrong side of the technology mountain. With the rapid paces in which technology advances these days, the reluctance to climb your way out of the bygone valley is understandable. Change is hard, but being left behind is a worse scenario by far. If you or a loved one are finally ready to tackle the basics of technology, never fear. There is a convenient and non-threatening place to learn the basics right here in Louisville: at your local public library. Of course, learning from a friend or family member (tap those grandchildren born with a smartphone in their hands) is a viable option, but if you need to go your path alone, let the Louisville Free Public Library (LFPL) be your guide. Seth Cohen leads several LFPL technology classes and says many seniors take advantage of the services the library provides. Mastering technology usage may be daunting, but there are ways to learn in Louisville, even for the most green. And remember, the best way to climb a mountain is to take one step at a time.

Here are four tech lessons you can learn at The Louisville Free Public Library:

1

Patrons can schedule a one-on-one tech basics session with a library staff member to setup an email account or social media page. Library staff will help facilitate technological independence and troubleshoot basic issues.

38 Spring 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

2

Each branch also offers a variety of group classes that cover anything from setting up an email account to Excel classes. “The classes are geared toward beginners, many of whom are seniors,� Seth explains, and the instructor can take the time needed to get the amatuer started.

3

In addition, Seth notes that the library can also help seniors get set up with an ebook or ereader. Library staff can help seniors start an account and manage their own digital texts on their readers, which can enlarge and brighten the print for easier viewing.

For patrons who master basic technology skills and want to go a step further? The library also offers technology classes for workforce training and side jobs such as spreadsheets and tutorials on Adobe Photoshop.

A bathroom built without restrictions can be beautiful as well as age-friendly — with no barriers to the shower, wide doorway, and handheld shower options.

CREATE AN AGE-FRIENDLY HOME By Rachel Reynolds Photos by Melissa Donald

What would make your home work better for you? There are many tools available to help anyone live long and well in their homes, because home is indeed where the heart is, as well as where cherished memories, dignity, and optimism reside. PAGE 42 >>

The cooktop offers a Flex Zone which automatically adopts to the shape and size of your pots and pans.

Independent aging tools can range from home building modifications, installing smart technology, scheduling meal delivery and house cleaning, and improving lighting, among other things. The key to making successful home modifications is to consult an occupational therapist up front and create a comprehensive plan rather than making changes as needs arise. SMART HOME

“There are a wide range of smart home products that can be useful for both the senior and their caregiver,” says Carrie Morgeson, a licensed occupational therapist and co-owner of Capable Living LLC, a company that evaluates homes and solves accessibility and safety issues. “Options for successful aging in place can be simple things like fall-proofing your home and moving items around to allow for easier access to frequently used items.” Morgeson says there’s no one-size-

fits-all independent aging plan, and that each plan should be customized to the needs of an individual and his or her caregiver. She also insists that ageenabling a home can be beautiful and seamless without having an institutional look. Morgeson founded Capable Living with co-owner Kerrie Johnson Anthony, a fellow occupational therapist who has worked extensively in rehabilitation and specializes in older adults recovering from numerous debilitating conditions. Some of the home products they recommend are fall alert systems and voice-operated virtual assistants like Alexa or Echo. Other simple tools include automated light sensors that turn on when motion is detected. These are especially helpful at night when people get up to go to the bathroom. If there are memory impairment concerns, automatic shut-off switches for the stove and oven are ideal. Sheri Rose, executive director of The

Thrive Center, suggests the Samsung Smart Home line, which has motion sensors for remote monitoring. These can let a caregiver know that Mom or Dad opened the pantry or refrigerator, and a caregiver can view into the smart refrigerator to see and track expiration dates of food. The induction cooktop can prevent fires and burns. There are also motion sensors that can let you know that a window was left open or the family pet was left out. A sensor on the bed alerts a caregiver if Mom or Dad doesn’t get back in bed in a set amount of time, she says. The smart mirror can be customized for medication reminders. The Breeze tablet is senior friendly and can also connect to caregivers via telehealth. Sheri says wearable technologies allow the individual and caregiver to track pulse rate, blood pressure, and other vital signs ahead of an incident that may lead to hospitalization. PAGE 44 >>

DELIVERY SERVICES

“Many groceries are allowing orders to be placed online for pick up,” Rose says. The Samsung Smart refrigerator will allow a person to order foods and ingredients online. There are also agencies that will package and deliver meals for seniors who do not want to cook. Among these is Jewish Community Center, which provides a congregate lunch program to seniors aged 60+ Monday through Friday, says Diane Sadle, senior adult director at Jewish Community of Louisville. It also provides weekday Meals on Wheels delivery to seniors who still live at home but cannot attend programs at the JCC. Sadle says seniors in need of transportation are referred to Jewish Family and Career services, which provides vehicle transportation and homemaking services. HOME CHANGES

All of these products and services can facilitate aging in place at home. Sometimes, though, physical renovations to a home’s structure are also needed, Morgeson says. Typical areas that may need adjustments are the home entrance, where there may be stairs or poor lighting, and the bathroom. Installing lifts or ramps can help. In the bathroom, grab bars, non-skid floors, and bright lighting may help, as Morgeson says accessing the shower and getting on and off the toilet are common obstacles. Preserving a person’s dignity is important, and solutions such as bidet seats and caregiver half doors for a shower area are also available to assist with hygiene. “Other options are more in-depth such as remodeling the home to install a walk-in shower or moving a bathroom, bedroom, or laundry area to the main floor,” she says. Morgeson recommends “just right” designs that take into account a person’s specific health issues. For example, certain lighting, colors, and patterns work better in home spaces when there are challenges with vision, Parkinson’s, or dementia. Similarly, Rose says smart technology such as Iris Vision for macular degeneration and Eversound for hearing impairment are very useful.

Grab bars, a place to sit, non-slip floor, and handheld shower head are all things to consider in an age-friendly shower.

ACTIVITIES

There are also activities in the community that support aging in place and reduce isolation. On Tuesdays and Thursdays at The Thrive Center, Bellarmine University faculty and students provide grip analysis and gait and balance assessments for fall risk, Rose says. Feet to the Fire writers’ workshops — to capture life stories of seniors — and chair yoga classes are also offered, she says. JCC offers a variety of programs as well, which include shallow water exercises, chair exercises, light weights, active adult fitness, Tai Chi, line dancing, and deep water wellness, Sadle says. JCC also hosts speakers who discuss a variety of educational topics. Entertainment includes monthly day trips and a longer trip once a year. This past April, JCC took a group to Florida. Currently, JCC is planning a group trip in June 2019 to Mackinac Island and Northern Michigan. 44 Spring 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

ally Moss has been involved with weaving and The Little Loomhouse since 1968. She started as a student and has since worked as a volunteer, served as executive director and as president of the board of directors, and for the last three years has "I LOVE been studio manager. THE WHOLE “My interest in handwork developed from my TACTILE mother. She did sewASPECT OF ing and crocheting and WEAVING." embroidery,” Sally says. “When I was about 6 years old, I got one of those small potholder looms. The bright colors of the loops appealed to me. Everyone seemed pleased when I made one for them, so after I had made a little potholder for each of my family members, I decided to become an entrepreneur and started selling them.” Fast forward to 1968 when a friend introduced Sally to Lou Tate, founder of The Little Loomhouse. “I told Lou that I would like to study with her but that I didn’t have any money to pay for lessons. She responded, ‘That's all right, I don't have any money either.’ So we did a swap. I would make denim jumpers for her and she would teach me how to weave.” Sally says she started hanging out at the Loomhouse with Lou, and to further enhance her skills, she took classes, read about weaving and its history, experimented with her own projects, Sally was drawn to weaving when she was six years old. and visited studios of other weavers. She says she has notebooks filled with house for the kids who visit on field trips.

avid Lotspeich followed a thread of interest picked up in his childhood and took up weaving a few years ago. “My aunt had a very large floor loom in her living room. It sat in front of 16-foot-tall windows and as a kid it interested me. “A couple of years ago I was with my wife Nancy when she was buying yarn at Friends and Fiber in LaGrange. I got to talking about weaving with Vicki Kinser, the owner. She suggested that if I was interested, The Woolery, a fiber arts supply store in Frankfort, gave weaving lessons. I went to a one-day

workshop there and came home with a small portable loom and some yarn.” David now volunteers at the Loomhouse one day a week and in addition to working at one of the looms on his own projects, helps visiting school students try out weaving on the small table looms in the studio. Basically, David says, weaving is taking threads on a long or warp side and passing the weft thread over one and under the next. The table looms have two shafts or harnesses. Using the floor pedals, the harness lifts every other thread and creates a space for you to feed the shuttle through and use the beater bar to tighten the weave. Back and forth. Back and forth. “I still use the first loom I bought,” David says. “It folds up and fits into a bag, and I take it with me on vacation or when we travel.” After taking the one class at The Woolery, David says he connected with Martha Richard in Boston, Kentucky. “She and her husband Greg have a studio in Boston called Weaver's Corner. I took my loom and spent a couple of days with her getting one-on-one instruction.” He buys supplies at The Woolery and from the Loomhouse. He also uses a few online companies — The Yarn Barn in Kansas and Webs in Massachusetts. Another source focused on weaving and different techniques is a magazine called Handwoven. “I have learned a lot of the history of weaving just by volunteering at the Loomhouse and listening to the other weavers talk,” he says. “Weaving teaches me patience. It is a great form of meditation. Setting up the loom — it can look to be a tedious process — is actually my favorite part. Then there's the sound and the rhythm of movement. It's very meditative and very tactile. “Choosing the colors is the most challenging part of it for me. If you look at a single thread it looks like one color, but its properties might change when it's woven together with another color. I mainly look for contrast when deciding on colors.” At home David has a loom in the den and one in the basement with lots of fibers on lots of shelves. “I try to do a little bit of weaving every day, but I don't have a set schedule,” David says. “I like to work with my hands, and I like seeing the patterns in a piece emerge. There is gratification in finishing a project and moving on to the next one.”

It’s Heck Getting Old!

Solutions for when our bodies don’t work the way they used to

PROBLEM:

Not Fine With the Fine Print Have you noticed that the print on product labels and medicine bottles has gotten too small for you to decipher, even when wearing your reading glasses? Or that your glasses aren’t much help when you’re struggling with hobbies or household tasks that require seeing fine detail? on’t get discouraged. If your eyes are otherwise healthy, using a magnifier is an easy way to give your vision the occasional boost it needs.

SOLUTION: Hand-held Magnifiers From the classic Sherlock Holmes-style magnifying glass to slim and compact pocket models, hand-held magnifiers come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Many also include built-in LED lights, an important added feature. “Lighting is crucial because it helps improve contrast, which makes it easier to see,” says Dr. Kate Ray, a Louisville Eye Center optometrist with special interest in low-vision rehabilitation. Since they’re widely available and affordable, you can stash several magnifiers a ound the house and keep one in your car or purse.

SOLUTION: Headboard Magnifiers

Where to get them: Drugstores, pharmacies, big-box and office supply stores, and online

Also known as binocular magnifiers or ma nifying visors, headband magnifiers a e worn like a visor on your head and can be used with your prescription glasses. The magnifying lens compartment flips up and out of the ay as needed. “It’s a great hands-free option when you’re doing something with both hands but still need to use a magnifie ,” Ray says. One popular model is OptiVISOR, by Donegan Optical, but there are several others on the market. You can get lenses in different strengths, but keep in mind that the stronger the magnific tion, the smaller your focal point (distance from the object) and field of vie . Your eye care provider will help you select the right magnific tion for your needs.

Price: starting at $5-$10 depending on type and magnific tion power

WHAT I KNOW NOW

Mike Harper

Mike Harper retired in 2005 after a 33-year career as a repairman with Xerox Corp. in Louisville. He is the current president of the Louisville Dulcimer Society and has been a member of the group for 14 years. In addition to his music, he has a slew of other interests that keep him active in retirement. What is your music superpower?

I play the banjo and the guitar. I joined the Dulcimer Society because I wanted to have people to play music with. The group plays instruments that don’t plugin — all folk instruments including harmonica, the accordion, and the gut bucket or washtub bass. What drives you now?

Having a project going makes a tremendous difference. I might let a couple of days pass between projects, but then I’m right back into something else. One of my hobbies is woodworking/carpentry. I have a full woodworking workshop. I have built cabinets and bookcases and did some of the work on our house when we remodeled. I have an interest in genealogy. I took a course at Bellarmine in 1976 and have been knee-deep in researching family history since then. My family has a strong local history. All my ancestors were in the Louisville area by 1850 and in Louisville by 1890. I graduated from Flaget High School and I write interviews with former students and teachers twice a year for its newsletter. What is a skill every man should have?

Parenting skills. Develop a good relationship with your children. 58 Spring 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

How did you first ome to music?

Mike Harper

My first interest was in the guitar. I can’t read music and I never took guitar lessons. I don’t really have talent, but I do have persistence. Later I took banjo lessons and play it as a folk instrument. What was your plan for yourself?

I wanted to be an electrical engineer, but I wasn’t good enough at math so I chose to major in business. In the Navy, I was an electronics aviation technician. What advice would you give to the younger you?

Start retirement savings as early as possible. Pet Peeve?

National sports announcers who are entertainers, not reporters. During the game they spend more time talking about other things or telling some unrelated sports story and are not paying attention to the game. The best sports announcers are the ones you don’t know are there. A childhood memory?

As a kid I had a crystal radio set with earphones and listened to two local stations — WLKO for music and another station that broadcast the University of Louisville basketball games and the Louisville Colonel baseball games. Later, I got a ham radio receiver and could listen to stations all over the country.

Can’t quite get the knack of...

After I retired, my wife wanted me to do the cooking, but after a few trial runs she decided that was not going to work out for the best. How long did it take you to get used to retirement?

No time at all. Not long after I retired, I was asked to come back part time and I declined. I had no intention of going back to work. What changes would you like to see in Louisville?

A cable car that runs from the Kentucky Science Center over the river to the Falls of the Ohio State Park.

Prized possessions?

I have some of my greatgrandfather’s tools. I have a hammer with his name on it and his straight razor. I also have two pots from the 1850s that came from Melcher & Co. pottery in Louisville. The pots were used to store food. They were the Tupperware of the day. Best advice you ever received?

There are two ways to learn that the stove is hot — if you touch it or if someone tells you. They both work, but one is less painful.

EASE YOUR CHRONIC PAIN

Mind-Blowing Solutions for Migraines

T

he chronic pain of a migraine involves severe, disabling, and recurring headaches that can last for hours or for days. Visual distortions, auras, muscle weakness, and even speech disturbances often warn of the onset of a migraine attack. Although the cause of migraine headaches is still unknown, new treatments are finally being discovered that can lessen their frequency and alleviate the painful symptoms once they occur. Better yet, these treatments appear to maintain their effectiveness over long periods. For Louisvillian Scheri Mullins, this has been life-changing news. Her migraine headaches began over 30 years ago and have always been severe. “My headaches would start with sharp pains in one temple. This would radiate, generalize, and become more severe,” Scheri says. Most often the only solution would be to take a rescue medication to mask the pain and reduce nausea; then seclude herself in darkness away from light and sound while the migraine ran its course. Having to miss important family events because of this unpredictable affliction often brought on an unfounded sense of guilt and remorse.

A SHOT OF RELIEF

“In 2012, my neurologist suggested I try Botox [botulinumtoxin] injections, because of the frequency of my headaches,”, Scheri says. Reluctantly she agreed to try it and to her relief, it worked. Her migraine frequency has been reduced by more than 50 percent. “I receive the treatment once per quarter, which involves about 15 injections in my head along my hairline, in my forehead, and various places on my scalp. In all the time I’ve received the treatments, my face has been bruised only once. The side effects are minimal, and the treatments take about 15 minutes, max.” Botox injections for migraines cost between $1,300-$1,500 per treatment and are covered by most insurance programs. FEWER MIGRAINES, MORE FUN

Other patients (including Scheri’s mother, who also suffers debilitating migraines) are reclaiming their lives through the use of Aimovig, which is a once-per-month injectable that can be taken at home. Aimovig comes in two different types of devices: a single-dose (one time) prefilled autoinjector or 60 Spring 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

a single-dose (one time) prefilled syringe. What people like about this product beyond its effectiveness is the freedom from having to make repeated trips to the doctor for treatment. Over half of Aimovig users report migraines can be reduced to as few as one to two per year. Scheri says that she believes the key to solving migraine problems is to find a qualified healthcare professional — in her case, a neurologist — who you trust and can talk to. Be vigilant and communicate when symptoms change. It’s also important to figure out what your triggers are in order to avoid them. Incorporate alternative pathways to peace such as white noise machines, meditation, and yoga. Perhaps most important of all is to accept that migraines are a part of your life, they’re not your fault, and you are not alone.

My headaches would start with sharp pains in one temple. This would radiate, generalize, and become more severe.” — Scheri Mullins

Book Club

Stories & Photos by Patti Hartog

Featuring: Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham by Emily Bingham We welcome four new book clubs to our 2019 Book Club feature: Louisville Divas, Bookies, Willow Book Club, and this month’s featured group, Novel Women. Most recently the club reviewed Irrepressible: The Jazz Age Life of Henrietta Bingham by local author Emily Bingham. Henrietta Bingham was the daughter of Louisville publisher and ambassador to England Robert Worth Bingham. Brooke Pardue, who hosted the meeting, shared her insights with us.

Excerpt from Irrepressible:

“Henrietta, variously characterized as radiant, intoxicating, selfish, and shameful, was suppressed for years. Repressed — never.” What have you learned from this book?

The Novel Women Book Club WHEN: Meets every six weeks WHERE: Rotates among members’ homes

It was an incredible history of not only one of the most prominent Louisville families, but a history of Louisville itself. The Louisville transplants in our book club particularly liked the local history of a family who, to this day, is a large part of Louisville’s identity. There was much discussion about the history of acceptance, or lack thereof, of sexual fluidity and same-sex relationships in the U.S. and Europe, as reflected over the course of the book. Few of us were aware of the higher level of acceptance during the 1920s and 30s, and the decline of this acceptance post WWII. If you could hang out with one character from the book, who would it be?

Although tempted to say it would be Henrietta, we decided on Helen Hull

Jacobs, her partner for many years. Her ability to be in both worlds of the Binghams, Henrietta’s and her family’s, and garner everyone’s love and support, makes her a fascinating individual. Why did you choose this book? Are you glad you did?

This was selected by one of our participants, since she had read, and loved, the book. In general, we were very pleased to have read the book for the compelling history and the Louisville connections. The only negative, reported by some, was that sometimes the personal diary of facts and events didn’t further the story. It should be noted though, we rarely, if ever, read nonfiction.

If you would like to join one of these book clubs, send an email to BookClub@ TodaysMediaNow.com for details!

Caregiver Circle

By Julie Engelhardt

Practical solutions for making caregiving easier.

Planning a Big Move • Involve your family member in the decision-making process so she feels that the move is a partnership and not a dictatorship. • Let her choose what items she’d like to take to her new home. • Check in with her regularly to see if she is adjusting to her new environment. • Allow her to voice her opinion without expressing frustration with her answer. • Recognize she could be sad about her move and that it’s a big change.

— Elisabeth Knight, MSSW, clinical manager of clients and families, Caring Excellence

When You Can’t Be There “You must have caregivers you can trust. Ask for daily notes on your loved one’s activities and state of mind. Find someone local to check on your loved one. Technology solutions can be helpful — cameras and interactive communication, such as Facetime.” — Lucy Martin, retired IT manager, UPS

FIVE RULES for CAREGIVER SURVIVAL • Do the best you can with your loved one with regard to his situation. It’s impossible to know everything at any given time. • Push aside guilty feelings about what you are or aren’t able to do. • Contact medical professionals or caregiver agencies for advice when you feel overwhelmed. • Keep others informed of your loved one’s food choices. This will make for a less stressful situation for all if you are not with him during meals. • Care for yourself. Visit with friends, spend an evening with your spouse, or play with your children. — Cheryl Hepp Basham, retired project manager for Computer Education Support, JCPS 64 Spring 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Let the Fear Go “Anxiety in the elderly is usually based on a fear that may be from a false perception or have a real basis. As people age they feel more vulnerable due to their decreased physical strength and inability to care for themselves.” — Kayla Cook, owner of Caring Excellence She suggests to comfort them by providing a consistent caregiver, as that builds a bond of trust; provide positive reinforcement about finan es, medications, or other important matters; and monitor the news and TV shows they watch as these can often plant seeds of anxiety.

In 1969 Buckley made her Broadway debut in the original production of the musical 1776 and has been called “The Voice of Broadway” by New York magazine. In 1983 the Texas native won the Tony award for best featured actress in a musical for her role as Grizabella in the original Broadway production of Cats.

Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 The Louisville Orchestra

Ludwig van Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony is an exaltation of the ideal of universal brotherhood. In his only symphony to use a chorus and vocal soloists, he traced the line from anguish to joy, and from doubt to hope. It was also Beethoven’s final complete symphony, composed between 1822 and 1824, and first performed in Vienna on May 7, 1824. One of the bestknown works in common practice music, it is regarded by many critics and musicologists as one of Beethoven’s greatest works and one of the supreme achievements in the history of western music. Louisville Orchestra conductor Teddy Abrams also created a song cycle for soprano and full orchestra, which will premiere at this event. WHEN: May 10 @ 11am, May 11 @ 8pm WHERE: The Kentucky Center TICKETS: $27-$85 CONTACT: kentuckycenter.org/presents, by phone 502.584.7777, 800.775.7777, and in-person at Kentucky Center box office (walk up or drive-thru).

STYLE

Renew Your Brows If your eyebrow hair is becoming thicker and wiry or falling out, there are convenient options you can try to achieve beautifully shaped brows.

Brow shaping

Brow shape and tint

For brow shaping, you can choose waxing, tweezing, or threading, a technique that involves using cotton thread. The aesthetician gently wraps the thread around the hairs and pulls them out by the root.

Brows are shaped using threading, tweezing, or waxing, and the tinting lasts for three to four weeks.

Microblading This technique, similar to tattooing, injects pigment underneath the skin. The results last for one year.
