What’s for Dinner? COOKING AT HOME

Keeping it creative in the kitchen Quick, delicious ideas to inspire you even after years of cooking at home STORY & PHOTOS BY MELISSA DONALD

I

love dining out. But, dining out takes a toll on my pocketbook. So nowadays, dining out has become something special, and dining in has improved not only my cooking skills but also my awareness and control of what I am putting into my body. We are going to talk about great recipes from my kitchen and from the kitchen of Chef Mary Wheatley of Cook With Mary. “It takes a little planning,” Mary says. “Many of my great recipes are created by pulling together leftovers. One of my favorite things to do is to roast a whole chicken. I make sure to buy a whole chicken already in quarters. It’s easier to work with after it’s been cooked. From that roasted chicken, I make several dishes all week.” You can make homemade chicken soup, chicken tetrazzini, chicken potpie, quick panini sandwiches, chicken salad, etc. I have a friend whose mother will make a large batch of beans and create dishes from that the entire week. Mary has included a quick and easy recipe that includes black beans served over polenta. These beans are canned instead of pre-soaked and cooked, which makes this dish quick, easy, and delicious. Serving over polenta is a variation on the standard beans and rice. When planning ahead, here are some ingredients that both Mary and I keep on hand in our kitchens: onions, garlic, fresh lemons, carrots, celery, whole grains, and beans. Mary has a wonderful fresh herb

Chicken Noodle Soup 2 Tbs olive or canola oil 2 whole chicken breasts, or 1 small whole chicken (substitute 4 cups of cooked chicken, such as from a rotisserie chicken) 2 quarts chicken stock, chicken broth, or water

Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer.   Add seasonings and cook until the chicken is cooked thoroughly, about 20 minutes. Remove the chicken and allow to rest until cool enough to handle. Chop into bite-sized pieces. Return to pot. Add the carrots and cook until barely tender, about 10 minutes.   Add the pasta and cook until just al dente, adding additional chicken broth or water if the soup is too thick. Add the peas and parsley. Cook about five more minutes. Serve garnished with additional parsley or freshly minced herbs.

This is Mary’s polenta and black bean dish, which is super easy and quick to make. Chicken is not part of this original recipe, but it would be a great addition to this dish. Instant polenta saves lots of time. The package might not use the word ‘instant’, but if the cooking directions say that it takes only 5 minutes, that is considered instant. Polenta with Black Bean Chili Sauce 1 Tbs olive oil 1 onion, about the size of a baseball, chopped Salt and pepper to taste 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 tsp dried cumin 1 tsp chili powder ½ tsp chipotle powder Salt and pepper to taste 2 15 oz. cans black beans – rinse thoroughly 1 15 oz. can diced tomatoes 2 cups instant polenta (or regular) 1 cup salsa 2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels 1 sliced green onion Sauté the chopped onion, salt, and pepper in the olive oil until softened, about 5-8 minutes. Add the garlic and spices and stir to heat for 1-2 minutes. Add the black beans and tomatoes. Taste for seasoning and adjust. Mix together the corn, salsa, and green onion; set aside. Bring 6 cups water to a boil. Salt as desired and whisk in the polenta. Cook until thickened, about 5 minutes.   Serve the chili sauce over the polenta and garnish with the salsa. Guacamole, shredded cheese, and sour cream make good accompaniments.

This next recipe is fantastic! You can skip a whole step if you use cut-up roasted chicken instead of flouring and cooking the chicken separately.

work the way they used to n’t do es di bo r ou en wh r fo Solutions

Problem: Cataracts A cataract is a clouding and discoloration of the lens of the eye, the typically clear structure that helps focus light passing through to the retina at the back of the eye. Most often noticed after age 60, cataracts can cause glare and halos from headlights and sunlight, difficulty reading, diminished perception of colors, and decreased vision overall.

Problem: Hearing Loss Progressive hearing loss, particularly in the higher frequency range, is a common consequence of aging. Most often caused by repeated exposure to noise and simple wear-and-tear on the hearing apparatus, age-related hearing loss can make speech difficult to understand, especially in noisy, crowded rooms.

12 todaystransitions.com | Spring 2013

Solution:

Prevent it:

Surgical removal of the cataract is currently the only treatment available, says Dr. Brian Clark of Gaddie Eye Centers. The procedure is very common and has become routine. The cloudy lens is removed and replaced with a new artificial one, giving instant and lasting vision improvement. Small cataracts that don’t interfere with vision can be left alone and monitored until surgery is warranted.

Nothing can be done about age and hereditary risks, but wearing sunglasses with both UVA and UVB protection, not smoking, and controlling diabetes can help reduce the incidence and progression of cataracts. Multivitamins with antioxidants have also been shown to be beneficial to eye health, says Dr. Clark. Annual eye exams with dilation also need to be a regular component of your preventive eye care.

Solution:

Prevent it:

Today’s hearing aids are small, lightweight, and practically invisible. Some can even be worn deep inside the ear canal. Hearing is a use-it-or-lose-it sense, says Marci Shuman, an audiologist at the Heuser Hearing Institute. Delay in treatment can result in auditory deprivation, a condition where the hearing nerves don’t get enough stimulation and begin to weaken and atrophy. Timely use of hearing aids helps maintain the brain’s ability to properly process sound and understand speech.

Use hearing protection when you’re in noisy environments, says Shuman. Get a baseline hearing test if you or people around you start noticing that you’re not hearing or understanding as well as you used to. Ringing in the ears can also be an early sign of hearing loss. Sometimes loss of hearing can be caused by a reversible medical condition, so the earlier you see a doctor, the better.

BACKUP PLAN B, I HOPE YOU COME THROUGH

I

just realized that none of my writing is backed up on my computer. I used to write everything in longhand first, but since getting used to the computer, I now write everything on it. That means all of my writing is stored in my documents, and I live in fear of that dreadful virus that crashes my computer and erases years of hard work. I would never be able to recover my unpublished, work-in-progress novel, along with all the bad poetry I have poured my heart into since childhood. My son has promised to back everything up for me, but until that happens, I live with no backup. Where is Barney Fife when you need him? At least Barney had a bullet, even if it took him a while to find it. Some backup is better than no backup at all. The older I get, the more backup I need. It’s not just the memory on my computer I’m worried about. I need backup for the brain cells I seem to be losing by the hour. Sure, I put up a good front when my back is against the wall, but conversations are increasingly more like charades as I mentally go through the alphabet searching for the beginning letter of a word. My main backup for my writing has become my dictionary and thesaurus. Like Barney and Andy, they are steadfast and dependable when I need them.

Caregiver

CIRCLE BY AMANDA BE AM

“One of the things I’m constantly telling the caregivers through my work is to not lose that relationship you had with your loved one before you became a caregiver.”

— Mauri Malka, director of Family Services at Jewish Family and Career Services, which maintains seven groups aimed at providing support for personal caregivers.

“My advice to caregivers is to think seriously before they make this decision, particularly for caregivers who like their job. Research shows they will adjust better if they keep working. As long as they still like [their job], it serves as a positive type of respite. If they quit their job, those caregivers tend not to find respite and are much more burdened.”

Sleep better with these tips

“Caregiving is a risky business,” Robinson says. “Most caregivers back into it without knowing how all-inclusive it becomes. They have very good intentions. But in taking on caregiving full-time and by dropping out of the workforce, it’s not only a financial risk but it’s also a risk to your own health.

Energizing your loved one’s mind can be easy. Dr. Christian Furman, vice-chair of geriatric medicine at the University of Louisville, offered a few simple suggestions on how to help older adults exercise one of their most important muscles: their brains. “If you can learn something new or do something challenging, it stimulates your brain,” she says.

BOOST

Furman recommends encouraging your older adult family member to do some of the following: • Learn a new language • Work on a crossword or jigsaw puzzle • Play a musical instrument • Enroll them in a class they might find interesting • Read a book • Pursue an artistic endeavor

Give Yourself a Break!

I

n order to take the best care of an aging loved one, caregivers need to first make certain they are taking care of themselves. Studies have shown that a break from the day-to-day stress of tending to an older adult can improve both a caregiver’s physical and psychological health. A wide variety of respite options are available for caregivers who crave a rest. Cindy Boone, program director of the nonprofit ElderServe Home Care in Louisville, suggests hiring someone who comes to the client’s home to care for a loved one. Her organization matches these helpers they call homemakers to individual patients following a thorough assessment.

18 todaystransitions.com | Spring 2013

“Open communication between the client, the homemaker and the family member is extremely important when taking care of seniors and keeping them at home,” Boone says. “Our main goal is to keep them at home, keep them safe, and keep them as independent as possible for as long as possible.” In addition, ElderServe and other local providers offer adult day care services. Caregivers may drop their loved ones off at a facility for differing amounts of time. While they are being cared for in a safe environment, older adults will also receive the added benefit of increased socialization, a win for both caregivers and family members alike.

Easily manage medications Ensuring your loved one receives his or her necessary medications can seem like an around-the-clock job. But for older adults who can still live independently, manufacturers have developed some safe and effective dispensing systems that automatically allot the right amount of medicine at exactly the right time without a caregiver being present. While different enterprises market different products, Shannon Colin, marketing and education coordinator for Premier Home Care and Ann Willis, nurse educator for Premier Caring Hands, both recommend a device their company sells called Guardian Medical Monitoring System. “When we talk about a medication dispenser, the biggest positive is that it can allow someone to not have to make multiple trips to fill pill planners or pill boxes. It can actually give you up to 40 days of medicine,” Conlin says. The premise to the machine is simple. Once the medication is released in to a cup, a voice reminds the recipient that the dosage is ready. If for some reason the person fails to pick up and replace the cup, the device notifies the caregiver that the meds have not been taken. The caregiver can set up parameters that define the amount of time needed before being alerted. Although most insurance companies do not cover the device, Conlin says it’s well worth the $80 monthly fee for caregivers who have had to make numerous trips for meds. The company charges a one-time setup and training fee of $160. No contracts are required.

WHAT I KNOW NOW

Clifford C. Kuhn Louisville’s Laugh Doctor, 71, on motivational speaking, taking your time, and the bright power of humor BY LUCY M. PRITCHETT / PHOTO COURTESY OF CLIFFORD KUHN

What skill should every man have?

What advice would you give the younger you?

The ability to listen in a focused way. If you focus completely on the person speaking, it brings you into the here and now. We don’t really listen to what we are hearing. We are usually thinking about our own response. It takes intention and practice to develop the skill to really listen.

Slow down, and you will accomplish more. I didn’t jump on this lesson right away, though. I have learned it over the years. When I was younger, I ran in all directions at once trying to accomplish everything. Dr. Kuhn is a retired professor of psychiatry at University of Louisville Medical School. He lives in Shelby County with his wife, Connie.

Humor has the same effect on stress and fear as light has on darkness. The brighter the light, the farther away the darkness. What was the best advice you ever received?

Marry Connie! Marrying her was the best decision I ever made. We will have been married 49 years in September. We have two children and six grandchildren who all live in Louisville. What book should everyone read?

Good to Great by Jim Collins. It is a business book — a study of how solid companies have sustained their success over many years. But, it is also a metaphor for life as the characteristics for great success apply not only to the business world but to your personal world as well. Its message is that it is easy to be satisfied with ‘good,’ but that ‘good’ is the enemy of ‘great.’

How do you motivate others?

You can’t motivate others; you can only inspire people to motivate themselves. Motivation comes from within. You can make people do what you want with fear tactics and power plays, but they will stop doing what you want when you turn your back. The best way to inspire is to show someone how this plan or scheme or program or way of doing something has already worked for you and that it is likely to help them in similar ways. How have you inspired others to bring humor into the workplace?

Well, no one believes that humor is going to get the job done. They think of it as frivolous. I tell the people in my seminars and workshops that I am not here to entertain

20 todaystransitions.com | Spring 2013

but to promote light. After all, we tell someone to ‘lighten up’ or to ‘make light’ of some situation. Humor has the same effect on stress and fear as light has on darkness. The brighter the light, the farther away the darkness. If you can access your sense of humor, it gets some of the darkness away. Humor helps you see your way a little more clearly. What did you learn from working with comedian Jerry Lewis?

He is one of my greatest teachers. He lacks a formal education — he only went through the eighth grade — but he is one of the brightest people I have ever met. We worked together 40 or 50 times putting on humor workshops in the 1990s at hospitals and medical schools. I learned from him what humor can do, how it works, and how he has lived it. He says, “They pay me to play the fool, not be one.” I also learned from him that there

are no shortcuts. Jerry doesn’t look for a shortcut so that he can move on to something else. He is very comfortable with the fact that there are no quick fixes. He is meticulous in his preparations and knows that success is in the details. What article of clothing should a man never wear?

Unless he is a catcher, a baseball cap worn backwards. It was never meant to be worn with the peak coming out of the back of your head. What experience should every man get to have?

The opportunity to be with his grandchildren. One of the greatest blessings are my grandchildren. They are better than children because you are free of the uncertainties and pressures of doing everything perfectly. You can relax. And at this age, you can identify more with a little kid. Nap time? Juice and cookie?

Tidbits, news, and tips to help you live your healthiest years yet

4 Dietary Tips to Help Your Memory Function Doctors have been recommending dietary changes to their patients with diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure for years. Soon they may be doing the same for patients suffering from poor memory function. That’s because a host of new clinical studies have found that specific nutritional interventions can significantly improve memory function in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and those with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).

But you don’t have to have Alzheimer’s to benefit from the new findings. Eating a brain-healthy diet can also help those of us who, as we age, notice that our mind and memory just aren’t as sharp as they used to be. Here are four memory-boosting dietary recommendations based on the latest scientific research and clinical experience.

Fast 12 hours at night.

Proportion your fatcarb-protein intake.

Boost your brain nutrients.

Eat whole foods, Mediterranean-style.

If you take advantage of “early bird specials,” — having supper at the diner between 4 and 6 p.m. — you’ve unwittingly stumbled upon a brain health secret: the 12-hour nightly fast. If you routinely wake up at 6 a.m., try to eat your last meal by 6 p.m. the night before. There is scientific evidence that substances called ketone bodies, which are produced when there are no carbohydrates to burn for fuel, may have a protective effect on brain cells. This means no late-night snacking between dinner and breakfast.

Every day, make sure you aim for 25% of your total calories from brain-healthy good fat, which includes olive oil, avocados, natural peanut butter, and certain fish. Limit your intake of bad fats (fast foods, anything hydrogenated, butter, milk and white chocolate, and cheese). Consume 30-45% of your daily calories from complex carbohydrates (fruits, vegetables and whole foods low on the glycemic index), and wean yourself off high glycemic carbs (sugars, high-fructose corn syrup, processed grains, whole milk, ice cream, salty snacks, and anything made with white flour). Finally, get the other 25-35% of your calories from high-quality lean protein.

Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) are essential for memory function and brain health. Most of us don’t get enough from dietary sources, so consider high-quality, pure fish oil supplements that contain a minimum of 250 mg of DHA in each capsule. Aim for 1,000-1,500 mg of DHA daily. Antioxidant-rich foods are also great for mental function. Some of the best are berries, kale, pure unsweetened cocoa powder, mushrooms, onions, beans, and Alaskan wild salmon. Finally, ensure adequate intake of folic acid, B6, B12, and vitamin D in particular. If you’re not eating vitamin-rich foods on a regular basis, it’s good to supplement as needed in pill or liquid form.

A brain-healthy Mediterranean-style diet includes fruits and vegetables, lean protein (fish, chicken, and turkey); low-fat yogurt and cheeses; and grains, nuts, and seeds. Stay away from red meat and processed foods. Get in the habit of eating whole foods. What are whole foods? They’re foods that have only one ingredient — for example, strawberries, broccoli, or barley. If you must have a convenience (manufactured) food on occasion, find those packaged, canned, and frozen items with the fewest ingredients — especially ingredients that you readily recognize and understand.

Planning

MY

Sendoff

BY LUCY M. PRITCHETT / ILLUSTRATION JESSICA SMITH

In the course of our lifetime, we attend many celebrations in our honor — our welcome-to-the-world fete, a Sweet 16 party, high school and college graduations, birthdays and anniversaries, and (we can only hope) a retirement party. The one event you can’t attend is your own funeral. But that doesn’t mean, even though we were never taught how to do this in high school, that you can’t plan that service to your liking. PAGE 26 >>

eventually mingle with the earth, which to me is the whole purpose of being cremated. As they say, ashes to ashes, dust to dust. (There are also keepsake containers which are made to hold a portion of one’s ashes — small urns and even jewelry — but I can’t imagine that anyone would want such a remembrance of me.) Once the basic handling of the remains is chosen, it is time to decide on the service arrangements. Here, I ran into a snag in my plans. Which is just what I have been considering. I already knew I wanted my body cremated in order to get back into the Universe as quickly as possible. For the service itself, I am going for simple and elegant with an added touch of whimsy. To get started, I met with Brian Myers and Jim Addams of Pearson’s Funeral Home in St. Matthews. Generations of my family have been sent off from Pearson’s, and I don’t see any reason to break that chain now. As I have no immediate family in Louisville, both men assured me that if they knew what I wanted, my wishes would be carried out. The first thing we talked about was cost. I was presented with a veritable menu of services. There is a basic price for services of the funeral director and staff. If there is to be embalming and preparation of the body for viewing, those are separate charges. There may be transportation costs — a funeral coach for the casket and limousines for the family for the trip to the cemetery. Body casket costs range from $1840 (steel) to $26,257 (solid mahogany), and I must say there were some lovely ones to choose from. But I didn’t require any of those things, so we quickly moved on.

There are three containers for ashes that come with the cremation service package: a metal one, a wooden one, and one made of cornstarch that feels and looks like heavy, handmade paper. I loved it. Once buried, this last container decomposes, and your ashes 26 todaystransitions.com | Spring 2013

My mother and father are both buried in Cave Hill Cemetery, and I already have a spot right with them. My name has already been added to the tombstone. When my mother died, we had a brief, private graveside ceremony and then a service at the open air chapel by the lake in Cave Hill. It was quite lovely with the stone cliff in front of us and the lake, with its graceful swans and paddling ducks, behind us. It was October, and the falling leaves swirled around us in the breeze. It was like being in a snow globe. I wanted my funeral service held at the same place. Only on a recent trip to the cemetery when I drove past the lake I discovered — to my horror — that huge concrete bunkers, for lack of a better word, were now sharing space with the small, covered chapel. My heart sank. These concrete cremation niches to me entirely ruin the pleasant, natural beauty of this small area by the lake. I drove to the cemetery office and talked with Michael Higgs. He pointed out that there was a pair of smaller lakes and a small overlook area that might suit my idea for an outdoor service. I found the spot and was satisfied. There is a small, stone-paved, flat area bounded by a low wrought-iron fence, and the land drops off through wellestablished trees to the lakes below. It will be a lovely send-off spot. I also learned that I have to sign a waiver so that my ashes are buried in the dissolvable container directly in the ground. Otherwise, that container goes into another container. This outer container or vault protects the remains of the deceased if for for

some reason, at a later date, the family wants them moved.

Other thoughts about the service include flowers, readings, and music. I have been searching for poems or readings that are not religious. I am thinking along the lines of William Wordsworth’s “Intimations of Immortality”...’though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower, we will grieve not...’ Or perhaps lines from Mary Oliver’s poems “Journey” and “Wild Geese”. For the flowers, a bouquet of white roses will be just splendid. At the end of the service, each guest can take a rose as a final gift from me. Now, as to the music. Well, who else but The Beatles would I want to sing me to my rest? “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds,” of course. And then “In My Life,” “With a Little Help From my Friends,” and finally “Yesterday.” That about winds it up. The total cost of the arrangements adds up to a little over $4000, including cremation and service, newspaper obituary notice (I am also working on writing this), music, and flowers. Of course, there are many different options available. If you want your funeral to go like you want it to, you might sit down, give it some consideration, and write down your own ideas. Now that I have the final celebration of my life arranged, I am off to make the rest of my life a celebration while I am still here.

ut little by little, as you left their voices behind, the stars began to burn through the sheets of clouds, and there was a new voice which you slowly recognized as your own, that kept you company as you strode deeper and deeper into the world, determined to do the only thing you could do — determined to save the only life you could save. — Mary Oliver, “The Journey”

Charline Kimball, a self-proclaimed Louisville gal, has just released her second book. A far cry from her first book on how to properly be a snowbird, her second is a murder mystery novel about “an everyday story in an everyday neighborhood where something tragic happens,” leading to “a very surprising ending.” Kimball, who is the first to admit she is not a writer by nature, says she has always been intrigued by how people solve mysteries. Kimball felt she had a murder mystery in her and decided to write it. The book, Beloved Suspects, is available through Evanston Publishing at evanstonpublishing.com.

Watch Your Words

Think Before You Speak When you are caring for someone who has dementia, an innocent conversation can quickly escalate into an argument if you don’t choose your words carefully. Dementia care expert Teepa Snow gives caregivers a couple of techniques they can try with their loved one to avoid uncomfortable situations. Problem 1: Your mother doesn’t remember that you are taking her to her doctor appointment at 2:30.

Mother: “Why are you here?”

WRONG RESPONSE

Teepa Snow was in town to

Daughter: “Don’t you remember? You told me last week to be here today at 2:30!” RIGHT RESPONSE Daughter: “How about we go for ice cream before the appointment?”

Problem 2: Your mother makes embarrassing comments in public that draw attention.

present two seminars: one for families caring for someone with dementia and one for health care professionals. She is touring around the country and will be in Myrtle Beach, S.C. on May 31. Register at www.SeniorHelpers.com.

WRONG RESPONSE

Daughter: “Mom, don’t say that! She can hear you.”

Mother: “Oh, my.

RIGHT RESPONSE

Daughter: “Well, you know, she is a bit heavy. Now let’s go and get something to eat.”

Look at that woman. Isn’t she fat?”

Problem 3: Your mother is angry because her doctor has told her that she can’t drive anymore.

Mother: “He’s a fool.

He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

WRONG RESPONSE

Daughter: “Well, there’s nothing you can do about it. This is the way it has to be.”

Trying to change the person who has dementia, says Teepa, is one of the biggest mistakes caregivers make. “You can’t change what is, and if you keep pushing, you are only going to make it worse.” She encourages caregivers to use statements like ‘I’m sorry…this is hard’ to show that they are validating and empathizing with the person who is losing. For more tips, go to www.teepasnow.com. 34 todaystransitions.com | Spring 2013

RIGHT RESPONSE

Daughter: “I know that you don’t like him, but for right now, I think we need to give it a try. I am sorry this is happening. You are a good driver, Mom. Let’s try the meds for a month.”

Home to Stay

Here’s what to look for in a new residence By Lisa M. Petsche

As we mature, chances are good that eventually our home will no longer suit our lifestyle or our needs. Common reasons for relocating include simplifying home ownership responsibilities, reducing living expenses, maximizing accessibility and safety, and increasing personal security, community access or opportunities for activities and socializing. There are many options for boomer and senior home ownership, including moving to a comparable-sized home with a different design, downsizing to a smaller house or an apartmentstyle condominium, and moving to an adult lifestyle community containing detached homes, or townhouses. If you are planning to relocate, it’s important to take into account not only your current needs and preferences but also potential future needs. This can maximize your chances of being able to remain in your next home as you age.

The following are some questions to consider when checking out properties. BUILDING FEATURES

Does it appear to be in good condition? Is the exterior maintenance-free? Is there an entrance at ground level? Is it sheltered? Does the front door have a peephole? Are locks easy to operate? Is there a one-floor plan? An open concept layout? Are hallways and doorways wide enough to accommodate a mobility device? Is there non-slip flooring? Does carpeting have a low pile? Are there sturdy handrails on both sides of stairs? Are stairwells wide enough to accommodate a stair lift? Are they well lit? Is there a light switch within easy reach at the top and bottom? Is there an attached garage? Is there central air conditioning? A programmable thermostat? Is there plenty of natural light? Are windows energy efficient and easy to operate? Are door handles easy to operate? Are there ample electrical outlets and phone jacks? What about high-speed Internet access? Are there smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors? Do kitchen countertops have rounded corners? Is there counter space next to appliances and cupboards? In the bathroom, are there grab bars in the tub? A walk-in shower? Built-in shower seat? Single-lever faucets? Is there a spare bedroom and, ideally, a second bathroom, should live-in help be needed? If walls are shared with neighbors, what kind of soundproofing exists? 70 todaystransitions.com | Spring 2013

APARTMENT CONSIDERATIONS

Is the building fully air-conditioned? Are common areas spacious, clean and bright? Are furnishings and décor attractive and modern? Can elevators easily accommodate a wheelchair or scooter? Are the buttons easy to access? Does every unit have a balcony or terrace? Are there in-suite laundry facilities? If not, is the laundry room easy to access?

grounds

Is the lot level? If there’s an entrance ramp, does it have a gentle incline? Is there sheltered parking? Ample space for visitors’ vehicles? Parking for RVs? Does the neighborhood have sidewalks? At a house: Are the grounds low maintenance? Are paved areas in good repair? Are there sturdy railings and handrails on porches and decks? Are there motion sensor lights? At a condo: Are hardscaped areas and green spaces well maintained? Do they include benches? Are there shaded areas? Is there plenty of lighting?

location

Is it central to local relatives and friends? Is there easy access to major roads and highways? Is it central to frequently accessed amenities, such as a grocery store, drug store, bank, medical clinic, and place of worship? What about proximity to a shopping mall, library, park, walking/biking paths, recreation center, restaurants, and cultural attractions?

AMENITIES (where applicable)

What kind of security measures are in place? Is additional storage available — for seasonal items and sporting equipment, for example? Is there a party room for special events and a community room for group meetings? Are there fitness facilities? A games room? Recreation and leisure programming? What amenities are included in the monthly condo or homeowners’ association fee, and would you use them enough to justify the cost? What is the cost of optional amenities, such as a golf club membership? Lisa M. Petsche is a social worker and a freelance writer specializing in boomer and senior issues.

It’s Your Style

AGELESS BEAUTY

Being over 60 doesn’t mean you should shy away from makeup, but you do need to know some basic rules for looking your best if you choose to wear it.

BY TIFFANY WHITE PHOTO MELISSA DONALD

Denise Zeydel and Elizabeth Hutt from Z Salon & Spa will give you tips on selecting the right shades and applying makeup for mature skin. MODEL: Mary Broecker, 72, founding and

current board member of Yew Dell Gardens. 1. THE EYES HAVE IT

Frosted eye shadows reflect light and become embedded in fine lines which draw more attention to them. Instead, choose matte shades. To keep your eyes looking bright and vibrant, apply the shadow above the lower lash line in an upward direction.

2. USE EYELINER WITH CARE Eyeliners should be blended out to avoid having a hard line around the eye area. The objective is to create a softer look.

3. LUCIOUS LIPS ARE NICE Lip gloss highlights fine lines around the lip area because of its consistency. Lipstick, says Zeydel, has the opposite effect, because it will not run into the creases of the fine lines if you prep your lips with liner prior to applying the lipstick.

4. FOUNDATION IS YOUR FRIEND If you want your skin to glow, choose foundations that have moisturizer in them. After you’ve applied the foundation, finish your look with translucent powder. 72 todaystransitions.com | Spring 2013
