TAKING LESSONS FROM THE SEASON Aren’t you glad you live in a place that has seasons? We all gripe about the summer humidity and the freezing cold winter, but the change of weather allows us to have a completely different view every few months. Maybe we can let that new view change our thinking? Here are some things to consider this fall. AM I CHANGING? Not all leaves change into something more brilliant. Some turn brown and fall off the tree without making much of a splash. Are you changing into something more colorful, more yourself? Are you letting people see your gifts? (Read Book Club, p.16; What I Know Now, p.36) AM I CLINGING? Some trees hang onto brown leaves well into winter. These leaves seem adamant to keep the status quo. Is that you — do you resist change when maybe you should consider something different? (Read Day in Her Life, p.38; Living Options, p.44) AM I SEEDING? Plants that are working toward the next season are showing off their seed pods. Are you investing in the future — for yourself, but also for others? (Read A Visit With, p.18; Volunteer, p.20) AM I FERTILIZING? When we nourish the grasses and plants in the fall, they come out with beautiful production in the spring. Are you allowing yourself to take time to grieve, to rest, to think? (Read Fitness, p.26; Get Connected, p.50.) — Anita Oldham, Editor-in-Chief

PASSIONS WEEKEND EXCURSION

M

y parents wanted to meet up with me and my friend for a fun weekend, so we settled on a weekend in Cincinnati. We planned it last minute so things were discovered more than organized, but we had a fun-filled weekend and some fantastic food. My mother has two bad knees so we did some walking, but we tried not to do too much. Every place we went, I made sure we parked close. Here are the highlights. WHAT WE DID We headed to an art fair in lovely Washington Park that hosts many events, including live music, exercise classes, and family-friendly events for people of all ages. Public restrooms in the park are now open. Artisans and food trucks were set up, along with live music. A water park is also there — it was a hot day so that was packed with everyone getting splashed as the water shot up from the pavement. washingtonpark.org Across the street from the Elm Street side of Washington Park is the Cincinnati Music Hall — a beautiful, late 19th century, brick building that is home to the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra (the sixth-oldest symphony orchestra in the country), Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, the Cincinnati Opera (the nation’s second-oldest opera company), the Cincinnati Ballet, and the May Festival (the longestrunning choral festival in the Western hemisphere). Indoor and outdoor tours are offered. friendsofmusichall.org/musichall-tours/ 12 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

After the park, we stopped by Findlay Market, Ohio’s oldest continuously operated public market. Everyone loves this place and it was packed. There are places where you can order food, beverages, flowers, and crafts. Be advised though, it was hard to navigate on a busy day. findlaymarket.org Washington We had lunch across the street Park from Findlay Market at the French Crust Bistro & Cafe. The menu is full of typical French fare, croissant sandwiches, a tuna salad baguette, and several quiche options. Virtually our entire table ordered different quiches. I’ve never had a quiche so good. frenchcrustcafe.com While in town, we also visited IKEA. If you’ve never been to an IKEA, here are three things you should do while there: 1) Eat in the cafeteria-style restaurant and be sure to order some of their famous Swedish meatballs. 2) Visit their live plant section. 3) Visit the discount area located to the right of the registers. Also be sure to visit their market and cafe located in front of the registers. They have cinnamon rolls and frozen bags of their famous Swedish


meatballs! Tip: Bring a cooler when making the trip to keep your frozen items cold. We decided at the last minute to head to StoneBrook Winery for wine tastings. There are several wineries in and around Cincinnati, but we decided on one in the country — about 25 minutes southeast of Cincinnati on the Kentucky side (Camp Springs, Ky.). GPS is greatly needed! To me it was worth the trip to pay $5 to taste five different wines of your choice. The tasting room is in an 1890s farmhouse, and we sat outdoors under an open-sided structure overlooking the hillside and trees. On our way to and from the winery, we drove through Fort Thomas, Kentucky. It’s a sweet little town with shops and cafes all along, what appears to be, a historic area of town. We ate at a Cambodian restaurant called Kampuchea Kitchen, a familyrun business. It was an excellent meal as evidenced by our devoured dishes. I got the red curry, my mother got the chicken salad, and my father got a pork dish. kampucheakitchen.square.site For one celebratory evening meal, we ate at Chart House restaurant in Newport, Kentucky. What can I say…it was delicious! Pricey, so it's perfect for a special occasion. Every seat in the restaurant offers a view overlooking the river and into Cincinnati. I wanted to cry because the food was so good. chart-house.com WHERE WE STAYED We stayed at the Hampton Inn & Suites in Newport, Kentucky, which was fairly convenient and offers city view rooms for an additional charge. hilton.com If boutique is more your style, The Lytle Park Hotel in the Lytle Park Historic District in Cincinnati offers luxurious rooms and suites, upscale amenities, and exquisite onsite dining. thelytleparkhotel.com If you are looking for a truly local experience, consider booking through Airbnb. We looked at a lovely urban oasis downtown for $191 per night, complete with scenic views of downtown Cincinnati. airbnb.com

OTHER PLACES TO CONSIDER Rookwood Pottery — Their flagship store is downtown and currently tours of the factory are only offered on Fridays, and reservations and tickets are needed in advance. Next time I’m in Cincinnati, I am going there. rookwood.com

Browse in the Valley Thrift and St. Vincent de Paul secondhand stores, which are my favorite thrift stores. Valley Thrift is conveniently located next door to St. Vincent de Paul on Reading Road heading north out of the city, and on the way to IKEA. Check out The Mercantile Library on Walnut Street in the Mercantile Library Building. It was established in 1835 by a group of Cincinnati merchants and has over 80,000 volumes in its collection, including a book dating to 1614. The library is also one of the oldest public art collections in the city. (by Carrie Vittitoe)

Eden Park and Krohn Conservatory — We did not get to go to the conservatory because tickets were sold out. Eden Park sits high on a cliff overlooking the Ohio River. It’s a beautiful view. The park itself is small and open to the public with a small pond and statues gifted to the city.

If you enjoy a good walking tour, American Legacy Tours located on Vine Street in Over-the-Rhine offers several cool ones, including the Ultimate Queen City Underground Tour, which allows visitors a peek at some of the underground tunnels that 19th century brewing companies used in the making of their products. (by Carrie Vittitoe)

TIP: PARKING IN CINCINNATI The city has an app called Cincy EZPark. When visiting areas downtown where street parking and small parking lots are available, I highly recommend downloading this app before going. If you don’t want to walk or park, the Cincinnati Bell Connector offers free streetcar rides throughout The Banks, Downtown, and Over-the-Rhine. Today’s Transitions / Fall 2021

PASSIONS I LOVE MY...

Making Her Mark With Her Sharpie

Joanna Haas, and her Sharpie, exploring the Uniquely Human, Feelings prototype gallery which is now open. The permanent exhibit is anticipated to open at the end of 2022.

I

t took a little brainstorming before Joanna (Jo) Haas was able to settle on just a single item in her life that made her happy. As we settled in for the conversation, she mentioned that I might find her selection a bit strange. “I love my Sharpie pen,” says Jo. Honestly, I thought it was an imaginative choice, and from the chief creative officer of the Kentucky Science Center, how could I expect anything else? Her attachment to the permanent marker is long-lived and broadly encompassing. Yes, she’s an artist, but the Sharpie means more to her than just what she can draw. Jo has worked in the “attractions world” for more than 30 years — in Pittsburgh, in Columbus, at The Henry Ford in Detroit, and for more than a decade at the Kentucky Science Center. She is never without her Sharpie, and is kind of famous for the habit. For any work anniversary or memento when leaving one job for another, her colleagues would always bestow her with the symbolic gift of another Sharpie. It’s basically her trademark. Jo loves writing with a Sharpie. “It’s both a tool of expression and an expressive tool. They write in ways that no other pen or writing device can do. When I am in meetings, it’s very common for someone to say, ‘Here comes the paper and the Sharpie!’ And, it’s true,” Jo says. She believes it’s a way to help others understand a concept or strategic direction that may

“I SEE THE SHARPIE AS AN EXTENSION OF ME. IT’S PART OF MY IDENTITY AND HELPS ME BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER.”

otherwise be difficult to grasp. “I will draw certain ideas as they are coming out of my head. I get real excitement out of seeing that ‘Aha’ moment on the faces of the other people in the room,” Jo says. Jo’s skills in communication and community-building are fundamental to both her personal career success and to that of the organizations for which she has worked. As is true for many of us, having a pen in a meeting gives Jo’s hands something to do, but this goes far beyond note-taking or doodling in the margins. “I see the Sharpie as an extension of me. It’s part of my identity and helps me bring people together. We end up with a visual and shared language that helps us achieve our goals,” she says. In an interesting parallel, Jo described the basics of an upcoming project at the Kentucky Science Center called Uniquely Human. It will explore the mind-body connection and how it affects our bodies, health, and community. No doubt it will provide a scientific explanation for why the Sharpie, as an extension of Jo’s identity, provides her with so much happiness. For now, Jo has come up with good reasons of her own. “I’m a person who finds joy in a lot of things. This was a fun way to think about work, home, community, and the positive energy I get from my job.”

PASSIONS BOOK CLUB

By Vanessa Hutchison

Join a Book Club READ WITH THEM: HOW MUCH OF THESE HILLS IS GOLD

R

eleased in April 2020, C Pan Zhang’s debut novel, How Much of These Hills is Gold might have easily been buried under the morass of COVID-19 news that was filling the public consciousness last spring. But, as with most things, the cream rises to the top in the literary world. It was not only listed as an Amazon Best Book upon its release, but also made the Notable Books of 2020 lists for both the Washington Post and the New York Times. With all the book’s accolades, it’s easy to see why it has become a mustread for Carmichael’s Community Book Club in Louisville. Today’s Transitions listened in on the discussion. WHY IS THIS BOOK SO HIGHLY ACCLAIMED? Despite some of the more dreamlike worldbuilding in what is otherwise a work of historical fiction, Lucy and Sam, the two young Chinese immigrants at the center of the story, are very well-rounded and feel like they could have actually existed in the American West of the 19th century. Like real people, they are not always likeable, and they do not always make choices that we might agree with, but it is very easy to empathize with their struggle. While there have been a lot of stories about this moment in history, none have ever been told from the perspective of immigrants who are experiencing not only the hardships of that life, but also the racism that was so prevalent at that time. WHAT THEMES EMERGE THROUGH THE BOOK? How Much of These Hills is Gold touches on so many ideas it is difficult to pin them all down. At its heart, it is a story about family, and the memories that hold us together, but there are also issues of poverty, sexual identity, and survival. Interestingly, we experience these ideas primarily through the perspective of children. Lucy and Sam are orphaned and trying to make their way in a world that is not easy for anyone, and certainly not for anyone who is not white and male. That makes this novel feel very fresh, and at times, even more devastating. JOIN CARMICHAEL’S COMMUNITY BOOK CLUB! Carmichael’s Community Book Club meets on the last Tuesday of every month at the Frankfort Avenue location. There is a new event space for book club meetings, author readings and other events, and Carmichael’s offers a discount on the book club’s book each month. The club is a welcoming community that loves new members and loves books!

PASSIONS A VISIT WITH...

By Lucy M. Pritchett | Photos submitted

A Doctor With an Artistic Heart

H

ere is a man who definitely puts heart into his art. Over the last 16 years, pediatrician Dr. Ronald Lehocky has fashioned and donated close to 50,000 polymer clay heart pins. All the money (at $10 a pin) goes to support continuing education for the therapists at the Kids Center for Pediatric Therapies on Eastern Parkway. In 2009, he was presented with the Bell Award for his charitable contributions. A life-long creator, his talents also include photography and gardening. He says, “I’m the poster child for keeping busy.”

HOW DID THIS LEAD TO YOUR PROJECT FOR THE KIDS CENTER? A former patient of mine asked me to serve on the Center’s board of directors, and as with many organizations, it was always looking for funding. I thought about what I could do to use my clay supplies and also give to the charitable organization. I made 100 heart-shaped pins to sell for its fashion show that at $10 a piece would raise $1,000. One month before the event all of the hearts had sold out, and I had to make more.

WHAT WAS YOUR INTRODUCTION TO POLYMER CLAY? I had always done artistic things—I made and sold potholders when I was a kid, later discovered macrame, and also worked with wood. About 16 years ago, my daughter, who was working for the jeweler Carlton Ridge, asked me to stop at a bead store on one of my out-of-town trips to pick up beads for her. There, I saw the book The New Clay by Nan Roche about making jewelry with polymer clay, and I was hooked.

THEN WHAT? I continued making hearts for Valentine’s Day, Halloween, Christmas. Each design is my own, and I sold them myself at art fairs and galleries. Eventually, shops in Louisville started carrying them.This project has taken me places I never thought I would go. Word of the project has spread internationally and people buy them in Nepal, Bali, Europe, and England. It’s amazing how it was appreciated and people wanted to help.

WHAT WAS THE APPEAL? I had wanted to be a potter, but as a doctor with three kids I had limited time to do things. Also, my wife was not going to let there be a kiln in our home. The polymer clay is soft and malleable and doesn’t dry out if I leave it in the middle of a project. I can bake it in a conventional oven at 275 degrees so it is easy and convenient and full of color.

WHAT IS YOUR STUDIO LIKE? I have a room in my finished basement. It’s called The Clay Cave. It’s very small with a work table, a CD player, my supplies, and two chairs. I turn on music, and it takes me away for a couple of hours.

HOW HAVE YOU EXPANDED YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE ART? I took classes and read books and really was just totally absorbed in the craft. I traveled to workshops, watched videos, and taught myself techniques. 18 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

WHAT IS THE PROCESS? The first layer—the veneer—is the design or pattern; the second layer is the interior of the piece; and, the third layer gives it a rounded contour look. I want my hearts to appeal to the eye. I am not into bizarre subjects or designs. I like to experiment but I also want a sophisticated look that is not unsettling. My aesthetics are full of balance and pleasing designs.

PASSIONS VOLUNTEER

By Kym Voorhees Raque | Photo by Patti Hartog

A Guiding Light:

“I’ve been where you are now...”

W

hen Berta Weyenberg was 30, she left her native Cuba with her young sons, Juan and Felix, to begin a new life in the United States. Her older brother, Dr. Juan Polo came to Louisville in 1995 through the U.S. lottery visa program. Berta was chosen through the lottery the following year, and she and her sons joined Juan in December 1996. One year after arriving in Louisville, Berta, who had worked in education in Cuba, began her career at Jefferson County Public Schools as a bilingual teacher and now, more than 20 years later, serves as an English As A Second Language (ESL) Intake Center Coordinator. DESCRIBE THE WORK YOU DO FOR JCPS. I work directly with families whose primary language is something other than English. I find out what the family needs and tell them what options are open to them — not just through school but community resources as well — to help them adjust to life in the U.S. I tell families, I was just like you. I’ve been exactly where you are now, and you can make it. YOU VOLUNTEER WITH SEVERAL ORGANIZATIONS. HOW DID YOU BEGIN YOUR VOLUNTEER WORK? It was really through my role at JCPS that I started. I would make home visits to families and see the needs in the community. The challenges they were facing were the same ones I faced with my own kids when we came here. I began working with refugee agencies like Kentucky Refugee Ministries, Catholic Charities, and La Casita Center to help families adapt to the American culture and learn how to be more self-sufficient. Many have nothing and are used to having very little, so they don’t understand how to budget their money. They need help learning the basics.

AS PRESIDENT OF THE CUBAN AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF KENTUCKY, WHAT DID YOU AND THE ASSOCIATION DO TO HELP FAMILIES DURING THE PANDEMIC? We began delivering meals to families in need starting in late March 2020. For 13 consecutive Saturdays we would go to Hispanic neighborhoods around the city and set up at local businesses willing to host us. Needy families would come to us and we’d give them bags with essentials like chicken, beans, rice, canned goods, hand sanitizer, and toilet paper. When no one else had toilet paper, we did! We also gave out diapers and wipes and tried to meet the needs of all those who came to us. We received food and monetary donations every week, and local businesses opened their doors to help. YOU ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT VOLUNTEERING. WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THOSE CONSIDERING IT? The needs are everywhere. Don’t let language be a barrier. If you don’t speak the language but want to help, do it. We have many opportunities at JCPS. Go to the principal at your local school and tell them you want to volunteer. There is plenty of work to do. We can all do something. 20 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Outside Highland Presbyterian Church, the original home of Kentucky Refugee Ministries, and the location where Berta was dropped off when she arrived as a Cuban refugee 25 years ago. Inside, she was given supplies and food and remembers hearing seven different languages being spoken in one room.

WELLNESS SAVOR A BITE OF FALL

A

trip to the apple orchard on a crisp day alerts your senses that fall is here. Today’s Transitions hit the road in search of some local apple varieties to create a few of our favorite fall dishes. Consider these tasty recipes a celebration of fall, in all its colorful (and yummy) splendor. So get your buckets, it’s apple pickin’ time!

TYPES OF APPLES USED Mollie’s Delicious Taste: sweet/tart | Recipe: Dutch Baby Mulberry Farm — Shelbyville, Ky. mulberryorchardky.com Northern Spy Taste: tart/semisweet | Recipe: Baked Apples Hidden Hollow Orchard — Louisville, Ky. hiddenholloworchard.com Jonagold Taste: tangy/sweet Recipe: Fall Sausage and Apple Saute Huber’s Orchard & Winery — Starlight, Ind. huberwinery.com *All recipes include the skin where a great deal of the nutrients are held.

INSTRUCTIONS: Place peppers on a pan under your oven’s broiler and check every few minutes to see when the skins have blistered and are black. Rotate every few minutes to make sure all sides are blistered and black. This is quick and easy to do on a grill if you have one. Turn oven or grill off and remove peppers from the heat source and cool. While the peppers are roasting, slice the onions, apples, and Brussels sprouts into ₁⁄₈-¼” thick slices. Set aside and slice the sausages into ½” rounds.

FALL SAUSAGE AND APPLE SAUTE Serves 2-4 people

INGREDIENTS: • 3 large Jonagold apples • 1 large sweet onion • 2 bell peppers, roasted and skins removed • 1 16 ounce bag Brussels sprouts, approximately 3-4 cups when shredded • 1 tbsp olive oil • 1 tbsp minced garlic • 1 tbsp dried thyme • 4 links of your favorite sausage cut into rounds (I used Andouille sausage for an extra spicy flavor) • Salt and pepper to taste

24 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Heat ½ tbsp of olive oil in a skillet on top of the stove. Place sausage rounds in the skillet and cook on medium/high heat until done, about 5-8 minutes. Remove sausage rounds from pan and add the remaining olive oil, sliced onions, apples, and Brussels sprouts. Saute mixture on medium heat until onions are translucent and starting to turn a golden color, about 7-8 minutes. Stir occasionally. Add the garlic, thyme, and salt and pepper and continue cooking for another 3-5 minutes. Turn heat to low. Remove the charred skins off the roasted peppers and cut peppers into ¼” wide slices or smaller pieces. Add peppers and sausage into the pan and stir until incorporated. Remove from heat and serve. We serve this with a side of rice, but choose whichever side you wish. Also good with mashed potatoes, baked potatoes, sweet potatoes, couscous, quinoa, etc. Created by Melissa Donald


BAKED APPLES (SHOWN ON PAGE 22)

DUTCH BABY WITH SAUTEED APPLES

INGREDIENTS: • 2 Northern Spy apples • ¼ cup chopped nuts of your choice (I used a blend of walnuts, pecans, and almonds) • 2 tsps raisins • 1 tbsp butter • 1 tbsp brown sugar • ¼ tsp cinnamon and nutmeg • ₁⁄₈ tsp of ginger, cardamom, and cloves • Pinch of salt

INGREDIENTS: • 6 large eggs • 1 cup all-purpose flour • ½ tsp salt • 1 tsp vanilla extract • 1 cup milk • 2 tbsps butter or margarine, melted and cooled • 1 tbsp solid vegetable shortening, may use coconut oil • 3 large Mollie’s Delicious apples • 2 tbsps butter, may use coconut oil • ½ tsp salt • 1 tsp cinnamon • ½ tsp nutmeg • Powdered sugar (optional)

Serves 4-6 people

Serves 2

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. With a knife and/or vegetable peeler, take the core out of the apple, leave the bottom of the apple intact. Add a pinch of salt to the interior of each apple. Place ½ tbsp of butter in the cavity of the cored apple. Add 1 tsp of raisins to each apple. Mix together the brown sugar, chopped nuts, and spices. Divide in half and pack each half into the 2 apples. Place apples in a shallow, oven-proof baking dish and place on the middle rack of the oven. Bake uncovered for 25 minutes. Remove from oven and press the side of one apple with a spoon to see if it’s soft. If not, place back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes or until done. Serve warm. Top with ice cream or whipped cream if desired. Created by Melissa Donald

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Place the first 6 ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds on medium speed. Stop machine and scrape sides with a rubber spatula; blend again for another 30 seconds or until smooth and all ingredients have been incorporated. After the oven has reached 450 degrees place the vegetable shortening in a 12” cast iron skillet and place in the oven for 5 minutes to preheat the pan and melt the shortening. If not using a cast iron skillet, then you can use one large cake pan or split the batter into two separate cake pans. Remove the pan from the oven and immediately pour the batter into the hot skillet. Place immediately back into the oven and bake for 18 minutes.

Dutch Baby with Sauteed Apples

After 18 minutes, reduce the heat to 350 degrees and bake for another 5-10 minutes or until the edges are puffed and golden. Be sure to check oven temperature as oven temperatures may vary. While the Dutch Baby is baking, slice the apples into thin wedges. Melt the butter or oil in a pan on top of the stove and add the apples. Sprinkle the salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg on top of the apples, combine, and saute on medium heat until golden, about 8-10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside. Remove Dutch Baby from the oven and cut into wedges. Place on plates and top with the sauteed apples. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and/or drizzle with maple syrup. The sides of the Dutch Baby will rise first while baking. Sides can rise up to 4”-5”. The center of the Dutch Baby will rise as well and fall when removed from the oven. Recipe origin unknown

Small Changes Make a Big Splash

How this organization is helping you be more accountable.

Y

ou may not realize that Kentuckiana serves as a central hub for numerous organizations focused on aging well, one of which is the Trager Institute, a nonprofit affiliated with the University of Louisville. “Our philosophy is that we can flourish as we age; aging is an opportunity, not a disease,” says Mona Huff, a community health education coordinator at Trager. One of the many health promotion opportunities at Trager is the free Microclinics Program which addresses a person’s physical and mental health needs by building community and promoting accountability. While a person of any age can participate, many older people have found the program especially helpful if they are dealing with chronic illnesses such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease. The Microclinics Program focuses on nutrition and movement without using words like “diet” and “exercise” which tend to turn people off. Often people are hesitant to enter any kind of program because they expect to have to make huge changes in a very short period of time, but Microclinics starts by encouraging two small changes: exchanging sugary drinks for water and stretching. “You can’t shove good health down people’s throats; we have to model it,” Mona says. While physical health is the focus of Microclinics, some of its topics include healthy problem-solving and mental health which can make or break a person’s goal to pivot to a healthier lifestyle. “We talk about problems we might have and people who might sabotage us,” Mona says. What makes Microclinics unique is the way it brings people together. “The social connection [of the program] is sometimes considered the secret sauce,” Mona says. “We start with an individual and ask them to invite their social support,” which can be friends, family members, or co-workers. The beauty of this approach is that it provides support but allows each person to choose his or her own support team. Nearly everyone has had the experience, whether at school, work, or a social event, of being put into a group not of their own choosing and having to negotiate the awkwardness that follows. By self-selecting the individuals who become their health encouragement team, Microclinics participants promote their own health while also contributing positively to the larger model of public health. Trager adopted the Microclinics Program in late 2018, but Mona says much of 2019 was spent training and having staff and practicum students adopt it themselves. Before bringing the program to the larger community, it was important that Trager representatives model what they hoped individual patients would adopt themselves. Of course, 2020 happened

which forced Mona to change the delivery of the Microclinics Program to the public. She rewrote the curriculum to be virtual, retrained Trager staff, and is now ramping up to get more clients to try it out. Mona says the virtual programming is really focused on multi-generational participants and their families. “We want our young people to learn early so they don’t get some of these same chronic diseases their grandparents have,” she says. Plus, a grandparent who participates with a grandchild has the benefit of having a person well-versed in technology to help them navigate Zoom. While Mona looks forward to when she can have in-person classes again, she says virtual Microclinics classes have allowed individuals who might never have participated in a reallife program to learn about and improve their health. HOW TO SIGN UP Classes are currently meeting virtually once per week over a 10-week period. Participants work in small groups of their existing friends, family members, or co-workers to learn easy and practical ways to eat healthier, become more active, and take control of their health conditions in a supportive, group environment.

WELLNESS IT’S HECK GETTING OLD

Belching and Gas and Bloating...Oh My!

B

elching, gas, and bloating can cause both physical and social discomfort, but is a natural part of being human. Belching is typically caused by taking in too much air. For example, drinking carbonated beverages or smoking forces extra air to enter your body. Bloating is a feeling of belly fullness, which may or may not cause your stomach to distend. Gas, or flatulence, is the release of excess gas through your colon. Gas is caused mainly by sulfides produced by bacterial metabolism. While these bodily functions can be a nuisance, they likely do not point to serious health concerns. “Most cases of abdominal bloating are benign and are not life-threatening. In most instances, they can be managed with simple dietary changes,” says Frederick J. Hardin, M.D. with Baptist Health Eastpoint Gastroenterology. Similarly, lifestyle changes and diet can also have a positive impact on the occurrence of belching and gas. However, there may be other signs to look for in combination with belching, gas, or bloating that could be a reason for concern. “If you have alarming symptoms such as weight loss, vomiting, anemia, rectal bleeding, and/or severe abdominal pain you will need to rule out more serious conditions,” advises Dr. Hardin.

28 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

By Tami Pyles

SOLUTION 1: DIET AND LIFESTYLE A first step to improve belching, gas, and bloating is a change in diet. Avoid foods that are known to cause gastrointestinal distress. These include dairy, cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts, carbonated beverages including beer, and artificial sweeteners. Dr. Hardin also suggests exploring a low FODMAP diet which reduces the consumption of foods with sugars known to cause intestinal distress. Lifestyle changes, such as eliminating carbonated beverages and quitting smoking, can also have a positive impact. SOLUTION 2: MEDICINES AND TESTING There are over-the-counter medicines that can provide relief, such as Pepto Bismol and Gas-X. “Probiotics, such as Align, may be of benefit, but data is scant,” advises Dr. Hardin. Your doctor may also advise further testing. “Testing could include serologic or blood testing for celiac disease (gluten allergy), hydrogen breath testing for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth that may require antibiotics, and breath testing for lactose intolerance,” says Dr. Hardin.

LIFESTYLE WHAT I KNOW NOW

By Lucy M. Pritchett | Illustration by Dan Kisner

Clest Lanier discusses future adventures and the changes she hopes to see in Louisville.

N

o plans for retirement for this enthusiastic and energetic woman. Clest Lanier serves as community liaison with the unit at the University of Louisville’s College of Arts and Science Dean’s office that deals with diversity, engagement, culture, and climate. She is one of the founders of the Kentucky Center for African American Heritage and in 2019 won Preservation Kentucky’s Excellence in Preservation award for the restoration of the Trolley Park that houses the Center. She was project manager for the Louisville Downtown Civil Rights Markers Trail. WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT YOURSELF DURING COVID-19 LOCKDOWN? I learned that I like being around people! I knew I was a social person but didn’t know how much I would miss working with my colleagues. WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM YOUR PARENTS? I was raised by my mother who was widowed when I was 9. She was a believer in dreaming big, and she accomplished a lot as a woman raising children in the 1950s and ‘60s. She bought a home in a neighborhood where we were one of three black families on the street. She didn’t have a high-paying job, but my brother and I had what we needed. She never stopped dreaming. She got her GED in her 70s and inspired three of her sisters to get their GEDs also. She always strived for more. WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO THE YOUNGER YOU? Remember to keep God first. Stay close to your immediate family. Don’t be afraid to go after your dreams and remember that not everyone is going to see your vision, so stay focused. WHAT WERE YOUR PLANS FOR YOURSELF? I wanted a family and to go to college. I married when I was 17 and started a family at 18. A counselor at my high school told me, “You’re not really college material.” I found out she told that to others as well. It matters who is teaching and counseling our young people. How many kids did that counselor stop from pursuing their dreams? I did earn my degree from the University of Louisville in 1987. So don’t stop. Keep going.

CAN’T QUITE GET THE KNACK OF... The Floss. It’s a dance that my granddaughters do. I have tried a hundred times to do it and can’t seem to get my hips and my arms going in the right direction at the same time. WHAT ARE YOU READING NOW? The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together by Heather McGhee. WHAT’S THE KEY TO A GOOD MARRIAGE? Don’t go to bed mad. Give each other a little space. My husband and I have been married 56 years. THOUGHTS ON RETIRING? Well, right now I’ve got energy and a clear mind and will continue working. When I was younger I considered old to be 70 or 75, but now that I am in my early seventies, I find I still think, dream, and feel like doing things. I’d love to travel to Europe, visit out-ofstate family, and volunteer for smaller arts organizations. WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE CHANGE IN LOUISVILLE? The racial divide. The city is so segregated not only racially but economically as far as amenities and services go. I don’t have the answers, I just know it is a very divided community. We need a commitment from our next generation to change that.

LIFESTYLE A DAY IN HER LIFE

By Tonilyn Hornung | Photos by Patti Hartog

Carol Besse Talks Books, Birds, and How To Soar Into Retirement.

M

oving to Louisville over 40 years ago to start a family and a bookstore, Carol Besse and her husband are the visionaries behind the local favorite Carmichael’s Bookstore. “One of the first jobs I had was working in a bookstore, and I loved it,” Carol says. Following her passion, she and her husband, Michael, opened Carmichael’s (aptly named from a combination of their first names) on a shoestring budget. They worked tirelessly to create an inspired reading haven which is why today, Carmichael’s is the city’s oldest independently owned bookstore. Retiring two years ago, the couple confidently passed on ownership to their daughter and niece, leaving room for Carol to turn the page to new passions and interests in her life. DAILY RITUALS: “I love the freedom to set my own agenda,” Carol says. Her schedule allows for impromptu date nights with her husband or dinner dates with her extended family. “I just love my grandkids to pieces,” Carol says. She goes on to add that being a grandparent is vastly different from parenting. “You can revisit the joys of childhood,” she says. Carol does have one daily ritual that she keeps consistent and that’s her morning time. She says, “I always have one cup of coffee, read The New York Times, and then do the crossword puzzle.” She’s an early riser because — as the saying goes — “the early bird gets the worm.” But more importantly, as an avid bird-watcher Carol is going to be there to witness the entire event. RELISHING RETIREMENT: Twenty years ago on a trip to Costa Rica, Carol discovered her passion for bird-watching. Over the years, her interest has continued to soar and now retirement allows for more time spent in the great outdoors. “You really feel like you’re communing with nature,” Carol begins, “I’ve literally found joy.” Carol explains there are different levels to bird-watching. A bird feeder in a backyard might be enough for some, but traveling all over the world to glimpse the glory of the over 10,000 species of birds may be a goal for others. “It’s a challenging hobby—finding the birds and identifying them,” Carol says. Carol’s bird-watching experience has led her to serve as the president of both the Beckham Bird Club and the Kentucky Ornithological Society. Carol’s suggestion for those interested in taking on bird-watching as a new hobby: Start by taking a look at a bird’s color. “They’re so spectacular,” Carol says. Moving down the alphabet from birds to books, Carol’s love for reading hasn’t waned. Also a member of a book club, she says, “I have more time for reading now, and a book club is great because it reinforces relationships.” RETIREMENT TIPS: When Carol first stepped into retirement, she took a little break. She says, “My husband and I did nothing for awhile and took it easy.” Her saving grace was having her much beloved bird-watching hobby in place. Carol suggests searching out your passion before retirement. “Choose from activities you’re interested in now,” she says. With your pastime preestablished, you can easily step into a loved pursuit that fills your soul. Then Carol’s advice: “Embrace it.”

Bring on the Cozy with Texture and Moody Tones By Lindsay McDonald | Photos by Melissa Donald

J

ust as Mother Nature ushers in autumn with cooler weather and breathtaking displays of color, we can welcome the fall season into our home with these ideas from design experts, Shelby Sills and Katie Bryant of LL&A Interior Design. • Mixing texture, such as fur, velvet, wood, and copper, creates depth and juxtaposition in a space. • Using calming earth tones found in nature creates warmth and openness, giving the space a luxurious feel. Specifically green shades, like deep sage and emerald, are on trend this season. • Organic materials make the space softer and more comforting. Bring the outdoors inside with materials and shapes found in nature.

Expert Tip: Think outside the box by using different items around the home to decorate in a unique way.

TABLE VIBES The outdoor lantern, fur throw, and reclaimed wood box add texture and depth, giving this dining table an authentic fall vibe.

Lunch Plus One L

unch Plus One is a simple outing to enjoy with friends or visiting relatives or guests. For a fall’s day out, consider a visit to Gallrein Farms in Shelbyville. We love a farm! An outing and a yummy lunch all in one spot.

Gallrein Farms 1029 Vigo Road Shelbyville, Kentucky 502.633.4849 gallreinfarms.com Fall Festival hours: mid-September through October Monday-Saturday 9am-5pm Sunday 1pm-4pm

GALLREIN FARMS Three generations of farming — dairy, vegetables, and grain — has yielded a bounteous market for us city-bound folks. Gallrein Farms not only overflows with fresh vegetables grown in fertile Kentucky soil, but flowers, plants, a petting zoo (calves, goats, and sheep, but sadly no zebras or tigers), and just for fall, a haunted house—get your spooky on! What a delightful way to spend an autumn afternoon. Enjoy lunch and wander at your leisure around the huge barn stocked with vegetables grown on the farm plus other Kentucky Proud products — honey, syrups, Ale-8. Check out Gallrein’s website for a list of activities and events happening during its Fall Festival. A $15 wristband entitles you to: hayrides (also single ticket $2), pumpkin patch, haunted house, obstacle course, corn maze, train rides, and a host of other farm fun. The petting zoo and straw activities are free. The farm’s Café will not be serving lunch during the festival, but there will be food trucks, cookies, fudge, and other fall treats available. The farm is a mere 30-40 minutes from Louisville — an easy drive and well worth the trip. Lots of sky and earth and farm-fresh air. Roll down your car windows! 42 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

If you miss the fall excitement, hold on till April when Gallrein Farms opens for strawberry season and remains open through the summer.

CAREGIVER GET CONNECTED

E

ver wonder why you love spending all day with your best friend? Or why that onehour date with your bridge club quickly turned into three fun-filled hours? Studies show that spending time connecting with friends and family can keep your brain healthy, boost self-esteem, and lower your risk of dementia. So, feel free to stay for that second cup of coffee or play that extra hand of cards, because keeping socially connected is a great brain boost for your mental health. “As humans, we are inherently social creatures,” says Adrianne Lange, Ph.D., Licensed Clinical Psychologist, and Clinical Director at Mandala House of Louisville. This innate need to connect begins early in life and continues as we age. As older adults, gathering with friends, spending time with family, or engaging in a social club are all wonderful avenues to maintaining this bonding need we have. “We’re relational beings, and we really need to connect with others to stay connected with ourselves,” Adrianne says. Samuel Miller, Ph.D. and Licensed Clinical Psychologist also with Mandala House of Louisville, says, “Staying socially active is important because it promotes optimism and a healthy lifestyle.” Samuel goes on to explain that if we’re socially connected, and are physically and mentally engaged, we’re tapping into what truly makes us tick as humans. “When we have connections with others we’re in the position to be encouraging to one another. People function better when feeling encouraged and know they’re not alone,” Samuel says.

1. SHARE YOUR WISDOM

A good way to stay social and keep that circle of encouragement working for you is to provide assistance to others. Adrianne says aging adults are in a wonderful position to offer wisdom to their children, grandchildren, and loved ones. “Have meaningful exchanges,” Adrianne begins, “because your life experience matters.” And don’t forget to volunteer for organizations that are of interest or need your support. This is another path you can take to remain of service and also increase your feelings of vitality and well-being.

2. PLAY AND CONNECT

If you’re looking for a new and different outlet to spread your social wings, consider trying a local senior center. The Wilderness Road Senior Center in Louisville is one such place. The senior center offers chilled lunches, bingo, art classes, Tai Chi, and even hosts the occasional ice cream social. Tonya Cowden, the Recreation Supervisor for Wilderness Road, says, “We’re an open public place so seniors can come here any time from ten to seven.”

3. EAT TOGETHER

One of the great benefits The Wilderness Road Senior Center offers its patrons is a place to share a meal. Adrianne says that as we age our friend groups can change. These changes can leave us feeling isolated, and it’s not unusual to lose our ease when it comes to mingling outside our comfort zone. This is when sharing a meal with a peer group can offer connection and comfort. Tonya says seniors at the center love their lunch time and also look forward to getting out. “Having fun, laughing, and playing cards with friends is huge on the list,” Tonya says. 52 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

4. USE TECHNOLOGY TO CONNECT

When it comes to the benefits that socializing gives to our mental health, Sheri Rose, CEO and co-founder of The Thrive Center, says of older adults, “You want them to be around other individuals to increase mood levels. You want them to be challenged to learn something new.” The Thrive Center is “the world’s first and only nonprofit devoted to promoting healthy aging with technological innovations and specialized educational programs.” The Thrive Center takes new and innovative technical solutions and uses these to empower aging adults. Through the use of user-friendly technologies, The Thrive Center is able to assist seniors in singular ways to support a healthy level of engagement. This engagement is key to boosting mood levels. “We have to engage minds,” Sheri says. New technologies can help bridge this gap, and Sheri gives examples that range from learning a new card game or musical instrument, to taking a yoga or cooking class in real-time online, or going on that vacation of your dreams—virtually. While playing cards and music lessons have traditionally been reserved for face-to-face get-togethers, this isn’t the case with video conferencing options like Zoom and FaceTime. Virtual music lessons and card game apps that allow you to play with live competitors can keep your social butterfly status flying high.

“YOU WANT THEM TO BE CHALLENGED TO LEARN SOMETHING NEW.” – SHERI ROSE


REACH OUT TO MAKE A CONNECTION: IT WILL HAVE A RIPPLE EFFECT ON YOUR LIFE.

5. WRITE A LETTER

Adrianne also suggests letter writing as another option to stay connected. “The experience of writing a letter is spending time with the recipient, and it gives you the chance to speak in a different way,” Adrianne says. And a phone call is always a good way to engage socially and check in with loved ones. For those with limited access to getting out, these are all options for adding a dash of social time to your day.

6. GO WHERE PEOPLE ARE

There can be many reasons to talk yourself out of being social, but it’s never too late to take proactive steps to reach out to friends, family members, senior centers, or religious organizations when you need an extra boost of social support. Samuel says, “The reason to stay socially engaged is because we have interlocking parts that all work together for good. When we’re connected our spiritual and physical well-being is enhanced.” So, make sure to clear your afternoon when meeting your best friend, and take your time when you tell your grandkids those epic stories from your own childhood. It’s great for your mental health and good for your soul.

While it’s suggested to have some sort of interaction on a daily basis, this guideline may not work for everyone. “Everyone’s situation is different,” Adrianne begins, “think about what works for you and fits into your life.” And remember, social experiences don’t have to be planned events either. Samuel remarks that going to your coffee shop or local store also counts. “The value of going to the grocery store and being amid people can be helpful,” Samuel says. Today’s Transitions / Fall 2021

CAREGIVER TECH

By Vanessa Hutchison

Good Nights with Good Tech

L

ack of sleep can not only exacerbate existing health conditions, but also increase the likelihood of developing new ones. Therefore, it becomes increasingly important to get a good night’s rest. But, while research suggests that nearly a quarter of those over age 60 take medication for sleep at least occasionally, many doctors argue that such medication should only be used as a last resort. Instead, seniors should make some simple lifestyle changes and consider the use of one of the many tech devices available to help get a good night’s rest. Here is a roundup of some of the best tech devices for improving sleep.

ELECTROMAGNETIC WAVES TO REDUCE STRESS

@feel_cove

The Cove device is a small piece of equipment, similar to a Bluetooth headset. The device uses electromagnetic waves to activate the part of the brain that responds to affective touch, thereby reducing stress and aiding in overall relaxation. The device is not worn during sleep, but in the 20 minutes before sleep, when the brain and body are winding down for the night. Cove comes with a case and charging cord. The battery takes approximately 60 minutes to reach a full charge, which is expected to last for four night sessions. $490, feelcove.com

ELECTRONIC PULSE TO PRODUCE SEROTONIN The Fisher Wallace Stimulator has been clinically shown to help not only with insomnia, but also with anxiety and depression, which are also common concerns for seniors. While purchasing the device requires authorization from a physician, it is said to be one of the most effective devices on the market. The device should be worn for 20 minutes a day while going about everyday activities, such as reading or meditation. It delivers a gentle electrical pulse that stimulates the brain to produce serotonin and other chemicals required for healthy mood and sleep. The Fisher Wallace Stimulator comes with a hand-held battery-powered device, two electrodes with conductive sponges, and a headband to hold them in place, as well as a carrying case. $499, fisherwallace.com

A PILLOW THAT “BREATHES” The Somnox Sleep Robot resembles a small pillow, and is used somewhat like a comfort pillow or stuffed animal. Unlike other sleep aid devices, the Sleep Robot is not worn during waking hours, but held during sleep. The device creates a breathing rhythm and soft sounds that aid relaxation and help the user get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer. The accompanying mobile app allows customization of both the sounds and rhythm of breathing so that you can adjust to your own preferences. When you purchase the Somnox Sleep Robot, it comes with a charging cord and plug, as well as a washable sleeve. $499, somnox.com/sleep-robot

In addition to these devices, doctors recommend lifestyle changes for those experiencing insomnia. These include regular exercise, limiting caffeine consumption, and restricting liquid intake late in the evening. 54 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

CAREGIVER PRACTICAL SOLUTIONS

By Lindsay McDonald

Caregiver Circle THREE SKILLS EVERY CAREGIVER NEEDS When someone becomes a caregiver for the first time, there can be a lot of fear and uncertainty on what to do. Here are a few skills that can help along the way. • Listen to your patient. See what they need, not what you need. • Don’t be afraid to ask for help or to ask questions. • Be an advocate for your patient, whether at home, in the hospital, or at a caregiving community. Know what is going on. Don’t be afraid to ask. — Cathy Wise, caregiver

PREP AND PLAN WITH A CHECKLIST When moving a loved one into your home who needs complete care, setting up their room requires preparation and planning to deal with multiple caregivers, along with a few other items. Here is a quick checklist. Labels on all items, especially medical equipment Clipboard (for instructions, log of daily care, etc.) Prescription chart of all medications A movable cart A go-bag and list of all medications packed in case of hospitalization A Ring camera or infant monitor eyless entry with door code and remote locks for the house (for extra K caregivers who may need to enter the home so that the family doesn’t have to constantly answer the door.) — Michelle Tupper Butler, caregiver 56 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

SIMPLE ACTS OF COMFORT GO A LONG WAY Asking an older adult what kind of assistance they would like goes a long way in increasing their comfort and reducing frustration. Simple acts such as offering a blanket or sweater can make a huge difference in the comfort of an older adult. It is important you don’t rush older adults, allow plenty of time for visits or appointments to decrease anxiety. — Angela Leinenbach, University of Louisville Associate Professor/Nurse Practitioner

Home Health Care refers to care provided in a person’s home. Medical Home Health Care is a licensed level of care that provides nursing care and personal care. (These agencies also provide non-medical care.) Non-medical Home Health Care agencies in Kentucky must be certified. Agencies in Indiana must be licensed. They can assist with the self-administration of medications or treatments, provide limited personal care, serve as companions who prepare light meals and tidy homes, and may offer transportation or errand services.

SCHEDULE A HOUSE CALL As people decline physically, it becomes an increasing challenge to get them to their physician’s office. Often someone can have multiple specialists they see regularly, along with a primary physician. This takes quite a bit of time, energy, and planning on the part of the patient and family. A great option is to use one of the several home nurse practitioner services in place of your primary physician. They will visit, assess regularly, and bill Medicare for the services. They can order lab work, review and prescribe medications, order home health and therapy, and initiate more complex testing outside of the home. There are also some primary care physician concierge services that will come to a patient’s home. Telemedicine is another option that has found a secure place in healthcare due to Covid-19. However, this can be challenging for some since a computer or iPad is needed. — Kayla Cook, RN and Owner of Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services 78 Fall 2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com
