FROM THE EDITOR

Set Yourself Up for Better Days Ahead

T

his past year, we’ve had to make some uncomfortable adjustments in how we live, but we can work toward making 2021 golden.

Volunteerism gives us an opportunity to improve the welfare of the community, and it lifts our spirits. Start the year with volunteering at one of the nonprofit organizations mentioned on page 24, or think of creative ideas for helping a friend in need — whether delivering a meal you prepared, sending an uplifting card, or getting involved in a cause that benefits them (page 20). Don’t be afraid to ask for or accept help from people. Life is tough, and sometimes we need to rely on others to help us through difficult situations. If you’re a caregiver who needs some guidance, read our Caregiver Circle feature on page 42 or participate in one of the virtual support groups listed on page 54. Also, be open to developing new relationships, but be careful. The pandemic has made it easier for scammers to take advantage of people in various ways. Read our Don’t Get Duped feature on page 6 to find out how to spot a scam. Finally, commit to freeing yourself from worry by participating in a virtual meditation class (page 40). A clear mind and good thoughts are the perfect segue into starting the new year on a positive note.

Don’t Be Duped

How fraudsters are taking advantage of COVID-19 to scam you By Lorri Malone

“I love you. You’re the best thing to come into my life...”

K

athleen (*not her real name) was smitten. She received multiple texts like this each day from her new beau. In her 60s and widowed in 2019 after more than 40 years of marriage, Kathleen found herself lonely during the months of COVID-19 quarantine. So, she turned to a Christian dating site just looking for someone to talk to. And she did find someone who was eager to talk to her, getting a match after just two days on the site. But the self-proclaimed charming, wealthy widower wasn’t who he said he was at all. He was an imposter, pretending to be German, but in reality, he was likely Nigerian and completely untraceable. Kathleen would later nickname him “The Devil” — but only after he’d spent nearly two months sweeping her off her feet and right into his web of lies, control, and deception, ultimately conning her out of $40,000. “All the things I thought were true, were just popped bubbles,” she said. “The truth just popped.” Kathleen was a victim of a romance scam, the most common scam in Kentucky and the nation as a whole, according to statistics from the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office of Senior Protection & Mediation. And that’s not the only scam being perpetrated against older adults. Scammers have taken advantage of the social isolation of COVID-19 to prey upon victims at an alarming rate. For the month of August, the Office reports the dollar losses from these scams increased by nearly 8,000 percent over the same month last year — from $2,984 reported in August 2019 to $237,398.85 in August 2020. PAGE 8 >>

<<PAGE 6

And those are just the scams that are reported. LaDonna Koebel, executive director of the Office of Senior Protection & Mediation, said, “Only one in 44 seniors who experience a fraud will report it.”

What’s Going On? “These fraudsters are using COVID-19 to rip people off,” said Paul Troy, senior crime victim advocate with ElderServe in Louisville. “Fraudsters use current events or things in the news to capitalize on their victims.” And with 2020 being a pandemic year, scammers have had a heyday. They know older adults are at home and isolated away from close family and friends who would become suspicious of a sudden change in behavior. “Seniors are at a major risk of financial abuse because people aren’t around to notice things that would normally be caught,” Troy said. And, as he points out, they often have the resources scammers seek: People age 60 and older hold 83 percent of the wealth in this country. “If you’re going to target somebody for fraud, you’re not going to go after the college students eating Ramen noodles,” he said. “You’re going to target people who have worked their whole lives, own homes, and have the financial resources.” Imposter scams — where the fraudsters pretend to be someone they are not — are 99 percent of the cases Koebel’s office sees. They are especially common now because older adults are online more often or willing to answer a phone call to break the monotony of being alone. The scams can include romance scams, charity fraud, online shopping scams, sweepstakes scams, phone spoofing, technology scams, fake law enforcement, utility company and IRS scams, social media scams, and grandchildren scams, just to name a few.

Underreported Scammers prey upon people aged 60 and older in particular because they count on them to be ashamed or too proud to admit the fraud has happened and report it. “Embarrassment is a big part of it,” Koebel said. “But especially with seniors, they’re afraid people will judge their decision making.” Troy echoes this sentiment. “Seniors want to live independently. They don’t want to be seen as not able to take care of themselves and give up that part of their lives.” Kathleen said she didn’t tell her adult children about her newfound romance — or her beau’s request for money — because she didn’t want them to know she was interested in seeing someone romantically, especially not an online relationship. Even when her daughter questioned her about a change in behavior, Kathleen denied anything was wrong. “I consider myself an honest person, but I was lying to my adult children,” she said. Eventually, she told her children, and they urged her to cease all contact with the scammer and report it.

Reporting Scams The chances of fraud victims like Kathleen being able to recoup their losses from scammers are low due to the sophisticated foreign networks fraudsters set up to remain untraceable. Still, it’s important to report the crime to your local police department and your state’s Attorney General’s office. Koebel said her office can help victims connect to federal and other agencies that may be able to help, depending on the particulars of the transactions. And if nothing else, the report can help prevent the crime from reoccurring. “The best thing a victim can do is report it to our office, and we can try to raise awareness so others don’t fall for it,” Koebel said. Troy said Elderserve can also be a resource for seniors affected by fraud and financial abuse, connecting them to resources, information, and advocacy. “Don’t be embarrassed. Don’t be ashamed to step forward. It might help prevent people from being scammed and it might help you recover your money,” Troy said. “It can help you. It can help others.” 8 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

RED FLAGS Scammers are persuasive and believable, whether they are pretending to be an IRS agent collecting taxes, posing as a grandchild who’s in jail and needs bail money, acting like an IT professional to get a virus off your computer, creating a fake social media profile, or professing love on a dating site. Always check the validity of a claim, especially if you experience the following red flags: • Moving too fast to create a sense of intimacy and trust. Kathleen said the dating site she used had a policy against communicating with matches outside of the site, as well as sending money. Still, her match convinced her to do both, using charm, compliments, and terms of endearment to push a sense of intimacy. Eventually, he leveraged the relationship they had quickly established to create a fake financial emergency that required her immediate assistance. And it was all quite believable. “I was very naïve, and I thought I was smart,” she said. “The words ‘romance scam’ weren’t even in my vocabulary.” • Pushing you to act in haste. Troy said scammers like the one Kathleen encountered will often “instill a sense of urgency in their victim. They will push you to decide to do something right away” — click a Web link, share a password or social security number, send money or gift cards — before you can rethink your decision, run it past another person for advice, or check the validity. • Asking for — demanding — personal information or money. The Internal Revenue Service cannot use iTunes gift cards to settle your tax debt, for example, so don’t fall for a call asking you to do so right away or risk imprisonment. Publisher’s Clearing House or other sweepstakes will not ask you to pay a fee to collect your grand prize winnings. • Scamming with the season. Fraudsters often reach out seasonally: IRS scams in the spring; online shopping scams in December, for example. Always double check on a site like charitywatch.org to make sure charities that are asking for donations, especially after a natural disaster or around the holidays, are legitimate.

Give Your Body the Gift of Movement

A

By Tami Pyles Illustration by Silvia Cabib

ccording to Sir Isaac Newton’s First Law of Motion, “a body in motion will remain in motion.” But have you thought about it in terms of your own mobility? If you don’t keep moving, you too will cease to stay a body in motion. Mobility is the key to independence as you grow older, such as being able to drive, cook, and perform day-to-day activities like getting in and out of a chair. Mobility can decline with age, but according to the CDC, one in four Americans who are now 65 years old will live into their 90s, so it’s important to take an active role in preventing the loss. PAGE 12 >>

<<PAGE 10

While there are specific exercises that can promote mobility, the bottom line is that you need to stay active in whatever way you can. “Find an exercise you love. Don’t do something you will hate, because you will stop,” says Katherine Autin, CEO and founder of Parkinson Partners and Visionary Caregivers. It is also helpful to track your progress. Barb Millhollan, community outreach and LIVESTRONG director at the YMCA of Greater Louisville says, “we overestimate how much we move and underestimate how much we eat.” Tracking gives you a realistic picture of what you are doing, and encourages you to stay active. While it can be daunting to begin to exercise, especially if you feel you are already losing mobility or it has been years since you have worked out, you need to do it, anyway. Ken Gould, vice president of operations at Gould’s Discount Medical, encourages people to not worry about where they are starting. “Different people are at different levels. Start where you are and just keep moving.” To ensure you stay active, independent, and safe as you age, you must prioritize your mobility and take steps every day (pun intended) to keep moving. Don’t forget that simple activities like walking to the mailbox, dancing to your favorite song, or doing chair exercises count too. Aim for at least 30 minutes of movement each day. If you need to, break it up into 10-minute exercise sessions throughout the day to ensure you stay a body in motion.

“WE OVERESTIMATE HOW MUCH WE MOVE AND UNDERESTIMATE HOW MUCH WE EAT.” — BARB MILLHOLLAN

12 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Keep On Movin’ Consider these exercises and products as you build your plan to stay in motion, and be sure to consult your doctor to ensure the exercise plan is safe for you. Try Pilates Pilates is a low impact form of exercise. “Pilates teaches three things: mobility, stability, and strength,” says Holly Holland, owner of Holly’s Pilates Village. As early as age 30, we begin to lose balance. Pilates has a focus on core stability. A strong core will help you maintain balance while performing day-to-day activities. There are Pilates classes available online and at several gyms and studios. “When selecting a studio, ask questions about the people who will be working with you, and the specific issues you are having. One size does not fit all. You want to work with someone who has a high degree of training to be able to assist you with your particular issues,” Holland advises.

Hop on a Bike Cycling or peddling has numerous benefits including being easy on your joints, increasing bone density, and positively impacting balance and stability. “Peddling is really good for the brain as well, because you are using the brain and body at the same time,” Autin says. If you are not comfortable jumping on a bike or hitting a spin class, consider investing in a peddler. A peddler is a compact and inexpensive exercise machine with stabilized bike pedals. “Peddlers are a great way to exercise from home. You can peddle on the floor from a seated position, or you can place it on the table for an arm workout,” Gould says.

Put Your Hands to Good Use Exercising your whole body is important, even your hands. “We take our hands for granted,” Autin says. Exercises such as beading increase hand-eye coordination and dexterity. TheraPutty, a puttylike substance that comes in different strengths, can also be used to manipulate and provide several different hand exercises aimed at improving dexterity. For an extra challenge, mix beads into the putty and work to remove all of them.

Loosen Up Stretching is an important component of a mobility exercise plan. “Cardio exercise is good, but stretching and flexibility exercises keep you moving,” Millhollan says. Stretching is particularly important in the morning. “You have to prepare your body for movement,” Holland says, and Millhollan suggests,“Your bed is a really safe place to stretch.” She says to keep resistance bands or a long towel next to your bed so you can do stretches before you get up.



It’s Heck Getting Old!

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

PROBLEM:

Neuropathy Our sense of touch relies on a network of peripheral nerves that branch off the spinal cord and send signals to the brain. Nerves in our skin and throughout our bodies alert us to everything from the gentlest tickle to the most painful injury. Neuropathy, or damage to one or more of these nerves, can cause sensory changes such as numbness, tingling, and pain. The first step in developing a treatment program is to identify which type of neuropathy is present, says Dr. Mark Bazant, a Norton Healthcare neurologist. While there are several different types of the condition, the two most common ones are carpal tunnel syndrome and peripheral neuropathy.

SOLUTION: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

SOLUTION: Peripheral Neuropathy

Caused by pinching or compression of a nerve that passes through the wrist, carpal tunnel syndrome affects the wrist and fingers. You may notice loss of sensation or strength in your hands, or experience tingling or pain that may travel up the arm. Early medical intervention helps prevent it from getting worse, says Dr. Bazant, so don’t delay seeing your doctor. Treatment options include wrist splints, steroid injections, or surgery, depending on the severity of the symptoms. Also of note is a similar condition called cubital tunnel syndrome, caused by compression of a nerve in the elbow and typically affecting the ring and little fingers.

Damage to multiple peripheral nerves is called peripheral neuropathy or peripheral polyneuropathy. Diabetes is the most common cause of the condition, but other contributing factors include alcohol abuse, nutritional deficiencies, and medications such as chemotherapy that can be toxic to the nerves, Dr. Bazant says. Usually there is a gradual onset of numbness, tingling, and pain that starts in the feet and can progress upwards toward the hands. Your doctor can offer some medication to ease symptoms, but it’s also important to identify and treat the underlying causes in order to prevent further nerve damage.

WALKING THROUGH THE MUDDY DAYS AND FINDING THE JOY

When Grandparents are the Parents By Tonilyn Hornung

I

f you were to combine the ingenuity of Batman’s gadgets with Superman’s super speed, grandparents would still outdo them on both counts. When they’re needed, grandparents “leap tall buildings in a single bound” with crafty crafts, extra hugs, and plenty of sugary-baked goods in tow. But when grandparents are asked to take on the responsibility of raising their grandkids, they truly transform into the superheroes of their grandkids’ lives. PAGE 18>>

16 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com



<<PAGE 16

If you’re a grandparent making the transition from part-time sugar supplier to full-time caregiver, know that you’re not alone. “There’s a variety of different reasons where circumstances arise for kids to live with their grandparents,” says Lee Schardein, a licensed professional clinical counselor with Bridge Counseling and Wellness in Louisville. Whatever the situation is, the main desire is to keep their toddler, tween, or teenager safe and supported.

Make a plan Grandparents should prepare themselves for their new role. “Make sure you have your own support, stay connected with your friends, or even seek your own therapy. This can aid you through this transition,” Lee says. Making sure your emotional support system is in place can provide the backup and confidence you need when beginning this journey.

Be honest with your grandchild You might notice an awkward (but expected) shift in your relationship with your grandchild as you shift into fulltime caregiver mode, Lee says. In order to make this shift a smooth one, have an age-appropriate dialogue with your grandkid. “I would encourage honesty and a conversation to happen,” Lee says. Address this transition in a loving way. You can say something like, “Roles are switching, and I may have to set more limits and show up a little bit differently in your life,” Lee says.

Don’t neglect yourself If you are one of those grandparents raising this next generation, both Julie and Lee want you to remember to be gentle with yourself. Should you feel overwhelmed in your new role, Lee says, “Just remembering that saying ‘I need a break’ is helpful.” In those parenting moments when a few minutes of alone time is a must, search out your best coping tools and use what works to keep your mental health in check. Depending on the age of your grandchild, you can take a short walk, phone a friend, or read a chapter in a book if you need a moment of clarity. If you need other suggestions for taking a break, Lee suggests tools such as “stepping into the other room and taking a few deep breaths or making time to watch your favorite television show — whatever helps you release stress.” Taking care of yourself can also mean staying grounded in who you are. “A lot of grandparents have different things that they enjoy doing. Making sure that they can still get out there and do those things that they enjoy on occasion is important,” Lee says. In taking care of you, you’ll be better able to maintain your stamina and get some much-needed rest.

“JUST REMEMBER THAT SAYING ‘I NEED A BREAK’ IS HELPFUL.”

Get support If “it takes a village to raise a child,” your “village” may include helpful reinforcements like support groups, and Lee says, “family resource centers located at schools and a lot of churches” can provide more information for locating these groups. Not only will groups like these have practical information on emotional wellbeing, schooling, and what version of Minecraft your grandkid is playing, they’ll also offer emotional support. “I think groups are especially helpful,” Lee says. “Having other people around you going through a similar situation can be comforting, and helpful tips can arise from that.”

KIPDA offers help The Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA) offers a Grandparents Raising Grandchildren Program, whose mission is to “serve grandparents of any age who are caring for their grandchildren.” 18 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

The program is devoted to making sure grandparents have the help they need. “We contract with Jewish Family and Career Services, and they provide a support group for grandparents,” says Julie Cassin, KIPDA’s family caregiver coordinator. JFCS also offers individual counseling. KIPDA also contracts with the Legal Aid Society, which provides “free civil legal help on issues related to income, family, housing, safety, and health.” In addition, any caregiver who meets the requirements and lives in one of the seven counties of the KIPDA region may apply for a financial voucher until the grandchild turns 19. You must reapply every year. “I have grandparents that have been in this program for many years,” Julie says.

Acknowledge the sadness This transition can be unexpected and emotional. Julie says, “This is a situation that some grandparents did not expect to be in at this time in their lives.” Whether this life change grew out of tragedy, trauma, or some other unforeseen circumstance, it’s normal to experience some feelings of sadness and/or grief. Lee says, “This transition can involve grief, and acknowledging what’s really happening is extremely helpful.” This is when having your emotional support systems in place can help.

Stepping Up for a Friend By Tami Pyles

M

any of us have taken to the streets during COVID-19, walking to stay fit and fight boredom. Patsy Harkess is no exception. But what is exceptional is that Patsy has walked 1,000 miles amid the pandemic to support ALS awareness and fundraising. Her story is one of determination, love for a friend, philanthropy, and a humble heart. Last April Patsy was planning an 80th birthday trip to do the Camino de Santiago, a 500-mile pilgrimage in Spain, but she had to cancel because of the pandemic. Patsy was disappointed but knew it was the right decision. Life went on, including her daily three to four mile walk. However, the canceled pilgrimage was still on her mind. “It was the first day of May, a beautiful day,” Patsy says, and she had an idea that day. “‘I wonder if I could maybe do 12 to 14 miles? I will just try,’ and I did,” Patsy says. She started walking every day through her Anchorage neighborhood, with the goal of completing 500 miles. She wanted to finish in roughly the same time as the pilgrimage, which meant walking 12 to 15 miles per day for 40 days. As she walked, she spent a lot of time thinking about her long-time friend Mary Jane, who was facing a recent diagnosis of ALS, a nervous system disease that weakens muscles and impacts physical function. “ALS is the worst of the worst, it is always fatal, and there are only four drugs to treat symptoms,” says Helen Overfield, executive director of the ALS Association Kentucky Chapter. Patsy says, “After having done a few long walks, I wondered if I could do this for ALS.” She talked to Mary Jane, who supported the idea, so Patsy reached out to the ALS Association Kentucky Chapter. She also worked with her daughter to navigate social media to share her mission to raise funds and awareness for ALS. “It was a cold call so-to-speak, to see what she could do,” says Helen, about the day that Patsy reached out. The chapter, which holds its own walk event each year in Louisville, and three other cities statewide, had canceled in-person walks, but virtual walk events were still happening. They linked Patsy to the ALS walk website where she announced her goal to walk and raise $5,000. Patsy completed 500 miles on June 9, 2020. Her friend Mary Jane, and several others, were there to see her finish. “There wasn’t a day that I missed. Some days, I wasn’t sure I would make all the miles, but I did it,” Patsy says. She

“THERE WASN’T A DAY THAT I MISSED.”

had also far surpassed her fundraising goal. “She did a fantastic job of raising funds,” Helen says. But Patsy wasn’t done yet. She was thrilled to reach so many people through her 500 miles, so she set out to do it again! Late summer 2020 she finished 1,000 miles, with her last walk taking place at Mary Jane’s farm in New Hampshire, a place where the friends have spent a lot of time together over the years. Patsy’s fundraising efforts yielded over $25,000 for ALS. Patsy is modest about her accomplishment, but Helen Overfield sees it differently. How can you not be inspired by someone who has done what she has done?” she asks. A majority of the funds raised will stay local to support The ALS Association Kentucky Chapter, including services for patients and families, equipment provided free of charge, and mini-grants to offset ALS-related expenses. Additionally, a portion of the funds will go toward research. “I hope that researchers can find a cure,” Patsy says.

What Her Day Looks Like

Jo Ann Orr stays busy after her retirement from the U.S. Army 20 years ago, volunteering with Dare to Care, the Sickle Cell Association of Kentuckiana, and more. She is always on the go.

J

o Ann Orr officially retired 20 years ago, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at her schedule. After a 25-year career in the U.S. Army, she continues to serve others by volunteering in her community.

Jo Ann’s main priority is supporting The Sickle Cell Association of Kentuckiana, where she serves as the organization’s marketing and fundraising director. Having lost her son to sickle cell disease, she is keenly aware of the challenges faced by individuals and families of those living with the condition. Whether someone is experiencing a medical emergency or just needs to see a friendly face, she is

always ready to help. “That’s seven days a week,” she says of her commitment. Another area of Jo Ann’s community involvement is helping to alleviate food insecurity. She volunteers at Dare to Care Food Bank distribution centers and delivers meals to seniors through the Meals On Wheels program. “I have to take care of my seniors,” she says. “I’m a senior myself, but I’m still able to move, so for as long as I can, I will.” Jo Ann is also active in several veteran organizations focused on raising awareness and providing support and resources for veterans, especially women. She speaks at schools, organizes blanket drives and collects donations, and tries to participate in as many veteran events as she can. “While I still can, I feel I should be there for all of those who can’t,” she says.

26 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

A Running Start I like to sleep so I get up as late as I can, depending on the day. Usually I’m out and on the road by 9:30 in the morning. I do Meals on Wheels once a week now, but it was twice a week before COVID-19. On two other days I have Dare to Care, and some weeks I pick up an extra day if there’s a driver shortage. But I never know how long my day is going to be when I get out of bed. I’m also out at events and health fairs and other places to spread the word about The Sickle Cell Association and let people know we’re here, and at any moment I might get a call that someone is sick or needs me at the hospital. Eating on the Go My idea of breakfast is a cup of coffee and what I call a roll up. I put a few slices of whatever meat I have left over into a tortilla, throw a little cheese on it, roll it up, and hit the door. If I have more time, I get it in the microwave first to give the cheese a chance to melt. Lunch is non-existent, but I try to grab a nutrition bar or something to keep me going. I do try to sit down and eat dinner, though, usually something light like a salad with some sliced up meat on top. I try not to eat after 6 o’clock and keep to just a little lemon water. It’s supposed to cut down on cravings and keep me off the chocolate, which is my favorite thing. I would say that the world would come to an end without coffee and chocolate. R&R Time I grow tomatoes and other things in my backyard, and I have a house full of plants. Right now I’m bringing plants indoors for the winter and doing lots of repotting, which is a calming thing for me. About five years ago I had a hot tub put in, and at the end of the week I like to do a 100-degree soak to let my joints know that I appreciate them. It seats 6 and there’s plenty of room, so I invite some girlfriends over, and they’ll bring a bottle of wine and we’ll hit the hot tub. It’s a nice break.

The Magic of Smør Nordic Bakeri

W

hen it comes to baking, nothing beats the magic of butter. With this in mind, the owners of Grind Burger Kitchen and Oskar’s Slider Bar have opened a brick and mortar bakery called Smør, where Executive Pastry Chef Liz Nagel whips up delicious and wholesome creations from Nordic countries, including Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, and Norway. Smør, which is the Norwegian word for butter, is the only Scandinavian bakery in Kentucky. Inspired by their Nordic heritage, the owners have crafted menus that highlight foreign flavors but use local ingredients whenever possible. Featured items include cinnamon knots, Lefse, Kringla, Pepparkakor ginger snap cookies, and Prinsesstarta, a traditional Swedish cake seen on the Great British Baking Show. Their website, which includes full menus, mentions weekend Brunch Boxes, lists freshly baked bread, and has a selection of 10 tempting cakes that can be special ordered, including Black Forest, Brown Sugar Spice Cake with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese Frosting, and Fika Fika, which is a honey and black tea cake with notes of vanilla and cardamom that’s layered with tart lemon curd and cardamom meringue. Drool. Keep an eye on Instagram for their weekly featured items, including specialty cakes by the slice. Options are available for local pickup and delivery. Orders must be placed by 1pm the day before you’d like your items to be ready, and you will need to call or email Smør to set up a time for pickup or delivery. Shipping is also available. The philosophy of Smør is “lagom,” which means not too little, not too much. You’re sure to find your fill of delights here, but you’ll definitely be back for more.

Staying Safe, Happy, and Connected

T

he year 2020 has been all about making plans and then having to deal with whatever life throws your way. Staff at personal care, assisted living, and memory care communities continue to work to keep residents socially active, emotionally healthy, and physically safe from COVID-19 even though that frequently means having to be prepared to change everything at the last minute.

Socializing Safely Since COVID-19 began, there have been many considerations and regulations passed down from the Inspector General of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services. Kelly Miller, community relations director at Morning Pointe of Louisville, says residents are able to be outside of their apartments in common areas but must wear masks and are reminded to stay six feet from others. Staff and caregivers remain vigilant in prompting residents to be aware of their masks or distance as needed. There are individuals, however, who still don’t feel comfortable going outside their apartments and being around larger groups of people. Their socialization comes in smaller doses through check-ins from staff several times a day.

can’t be physically close. For example, an elder was able to virtually attend her granddaughter’s baby shower in Chicago, Illinois. Elders, their care team, and families are using Zoom regularly to have planning meetings and check-ins. Rendever virtual reality lenses on loan from the Thrive Center have allowed Nazareth Home elders to immerse themselves in nature, travel the world, or see entertainment. “There’s been a lot of research on virtual reality lenses, specifically in pain and anxiety management and prevention of depression. Only one to two encounters of a virtual reality experience weekly will reduce anxiety and improve mood and well-being,” Mary says.

Think Smaller and Outside the Box

In this current health climate, even the simplest ideas regarding socialization and group activities require more thought and planning. When it comes to preparing for holidays or special events, everything is uncertain. “All we can really do is plan for what we have guidelines for now,” Kelly says. “Guidelines can change on a dime. If we get new guidelines, we have to change that up.” One thing is certain, though: the singing and dance troupes that used to visit various senior living communities Earlier in the pandemic, Shirley and her grandson Wesley visit Family Separation throughout the holiday season Shirley’s 96-year-old father-in-law Chester at Symphony at Valley Farms.

15 MINUTES WITH

Kathleen Loomis

Kathleen Loomis became a full-time artist once she retired in 2000 from a career in writing and communication. At first, she worked exclusively in fiber and quilting but has since branched out to hand-stitching, mixed media, collage, sketching, and most recently calligraphy. She is a member of PYRO Gallery and is the author of Pattern-Free Quilts: Riffs on the Rail Fence Block.

How did you know you were an artist?

In the early ’90s I was making functional quilts, baby quilts, and had graduated to quilts for the walls. I thought to myself, ‘You know, this could be art. I could be an artist. I am an artist.’ Start telling yourself and others you’re an artist and pretty soon you are an artist. And, of course, you have to make a lot of art. I used to make huge quilts, which was very taxing physically to do on a home sewing machine. I got to the point where it was too much for me so I transitioned to other forms of fiber arts that are handheld and smaller in scale. Where do you create?

My studio is a big room in the basement that used to be a rec room with a pool table. When my sons left home, I decided I needed a better work table so I covered the pool table with two pieces of plywood and now have a work surface that measures 4 by 8 feet. There’s a sewing machine and a design wall so I can hang things and stand back and look at them from a proper distance.

Kathleen’s Memorial Day quilt honors U.S. soldiers who died in the Iraq War.

Graveyard (Iraq) quilt. It was inspired by the Kentucky Graveyard Quilt (1843) and represented the soldiers from Kentucky who had died — there were 43 as of September 11, 2006, when I finished the quilt. Another one, Memorial Day, is made up of 4,083, 1½-by-1½-inch flags and honors the number of U.S. military dead in Iraq as of Memorial Day 2008.

What about your daily practice?

For 20 years I’ve been doing daily art. Every year on January 1, I write new rules for what that daily art will be. For 2020, it was calligraphy, and I practice in a sketchbook every day. Other projects have included daily photographs, sketching, postcards, collage, and quilt blocks. (kathysdailyart.com). How has this helped you?

I use my daily art as a way to force myself to work on things that I want to learn. I want to commit to a year of daily work and use a specific technique. It’s a commitment to doing something regularly. Repetition is the key. Something happens that wouldn’t happen if you hadn’t done it the second time. So it doesn’t matter if you do something once a week or once a month, it’s the repetition. 34 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

My daily practice is not my studio art. I try to be in the studio every day. The hardest part of maintaining an artist routine is to figure out what you’re going to work on next. If I have a project already to work on I will pick this up and keep doing it. A real life situation that inspired you?

When the war in Iraq started I was upset and disturbed. Military bodies in flag-covered coffins arrived back in the U.S., but no press could take photos of the coffins. I’ve always been an American flag junkie, and I started obsessing about flag-covered coffins. From that came the Kentucky

That is an award-winning piece, and I donated it to the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. Your dream project?

Over the years I have collected euphemisms people have used in obituaries to say that the person has died. I’ve got hundreds of them. At an antique store a couple of years ago I purchased a crudely made nightgown and thought it would be perfect for the project. My plan was to embroider different euphemisms onto the nightgown. I even bought the embroidery floss in colors of mourning — mauve, gray, and black. I’ve misplaced the nightgown, though, and as soon as I find it, that project is getting underway.



VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Story by Kym Voorhees Raque Photo by Patti Hartog

Creature Comforts Born in Hays, Kansas, in 1945, Christine Little and her family moved to Louisville in 1953 when her father was transferred by General Electric. She graduated from Assumption High School and the University of Louisville with a degree in English and minor in biology. Little worked for South Oldham Veterinary Clinic for several years before having children and dedicating her time to being a stay-at-home mom. A life-long love of animals is what drew Little to her volunteer position as a docent at The Louisville Zoo in 1992. Why did you choose to become a docent?

I was part of the walking club at the zoo and would often see one of the educators at the Meta Zoo. She kept telling me I should take the docent training program, but I knew lots of them were retired teachers and just didn’t think I could do it. One day the educator had some baby opossums with her, and she let me touch them. Well, that was it. That day I enrolled in the docent program. What do docents do?

We’re volunteer teachers for zoo camps, classes, education programs, and community outreach. I’ve taught classes at the Meta Zoo for school children and preschoolers, but outreach is what I like to do most. We take biofacts (animal pelts, bones) and animals to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, and libraries around the area. I like being able to take the zoo to people not able to come on their own. We provide a hands-on experience, which is so rewarding. What else do you do at the zoo?

I’m chairperson of the library committee responsible for maintaining the collection of biofacts. We make sure they’re kept clean and organized. We have an impressive collection of animal pelts and skulls that we use in our educational programs, and we have to keep them organized and in good shape.

36 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

What has volunteering done for you?

It broadened my horizons and made me realize I’m capable, I can still do things. I can speak before an audience now and am able to educate other people. That’s something I never thought I could do. I’ve also learned so much about animals, their habitats, and the environment. I learn something new every day working with the animals. And I get to work with so many dedicated and passionate people.

What would you say to seniors thinking about volunteering?

Go for it! There are so many wonderful places and organizations that need volunteers. Look for something you’re interested in and feel passionate about. You get exposed to other people — people you would not have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. Just pick something and get started. Volunteering is never boring.

Book Club

By Vanessa Hutchison

Featuring: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi and White Teeth by Zadie Smith

T

he new year is a great time to start a new habit like reading a book each month, and joining a local book club is a great way to keep you on track to meet your goal. Carmichael’s Community Book Club meets once a month to discuss the great books that the group is reading together. Check out some of their recent picks for inspiration. In September, the group discussed Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, and the book for October was White Teeth by Zadie Smith.

What do these books have in common?

At their core, Homegoing and White Teeth are both about colonized people and the harmful effects of it. They are also about the deep roots of family, and how family is a driving force in all of our lives. White Teeth was published in 2000, while Homegoing came out in 2017, but they feel very relevant both to each other as well as to the time we are living in now, when we are having this significant cultural moment focused on human rights and the intrinsic value of human life. Is that why you chose these books?

Louisville Book Babes Book Club WHEN: Meets monthly WHERE: Meeting virtually on Zoom If you would like to join one of these book clubs, send an email to BookClub@TodaysMediaNow.com for details!

The group tends to choose relatable books, often about family, and some of the themes in these books are more relatable now than ever, with everything that is going on in our city and our world. It’s important to the group to choose a wide variety of books with diverse characters. If you could hang out with one character, who would it be?

This is hard. Each of these characters is so strong and Effia and Esi in Homegoing almost feel like two halves

of the same person. No one would want to go through the things that any of these characters have gone through, and bringing them into our modern world would be an almost impossible thought. What other titles would you recommend to people looking for books to read?

Homegoing is very influenced by Toni Morisson. You can feel it as you’re reading it. So, if someone has managed to make it this far without reading Beloved or The Bluest Eye, they should definitely pick those up. As far as books that people likely haven’t read, Rachel’s Blue by Zakes Mda, Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie, and Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. What else should potential new members to the book club know?

The group is now meeting on Zoom until further notice. The Zoom link is on Carmichael’s website, along with the dates of the next couple of meetings. We love new members, and Carmichael’s offers a 20% off deal on whatever book the club is reading in a given month.

MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE:

THE LIVE A DREAM [VIRTUAL] CHOIR

T

he challenges of the COVID-19 crisis have been especially acute for senior residents of health care facilities like those of Trilogy Health Services. Through its Live a Dream program, which helps seniors fulfill bucket list wishes, the company’s nonprofit Trilogy Foundation wanted to get residents safely engaging socially. Thus the Live a Dream Virtual Choir was born. Live a Dream Coordinator Serena Haming shares more:

Rachel May from Mom’s Music leads practice for members of the virtual Live a Dream Choir, who meet together on Zoom every Wednesday and will present a performance on YouTube December 16. The choir is comprised of senior residents of Trilogy campuses.

How did the Live a Dream Virtual Choir come about? We get lots of music-related requests from residents, and after thinking through the logistics, we decided that a virtual choir would help them connect with peers while doing something they love. There have been some challenges to getting everyone online, but it has all been worth it to see our residents happy and singing. Who is in the choir, and who conducts it? There are currently 19 choir members across Trilogy Health locations in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan. Many of the seniors have music experience, and some just wanted to sing with others. Rachel May from Mom’s Music conducts practice virtually via Zoom every Wednesday at 2 pm. All practices are recorded and posted to YouTube, and Rachel also uploads videos to help choir members practice on their own. What music is the choir working on? Right now, the focus is on Christmas music — We Wish You a Merry Christmas, Joy to the World, and more. Sheet music is provided, and Rachel accompanies on the keyboard. Is a performance planned? Yes! Choir members are learning how to record their individual parts, which will be combined for a virtual performance December 16 on YouTube. We expect all Trilogy campuses to make time to view it together, and it will also be shared via Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter (@LiveADreamUSA). How do residents feel about being in the choir? I think they’ve all felt the warmth of being able to come together. This opportunity has allowed us to get back to embracing the things that we love while still being mindful of each other’s health and safety. The Live a Dream program demonstrates Trilogy Health’s continued commitment to exceed the expectations of our seniors and their families in everything we do. Live A Dream offers opportunities for seniors to enjoy activities that they used to do more often, but have since been unable to do. Live A Dream grants priceless experiences that encourage us all to keep our dreams alive.

Virtual Meditation For Trying Times

R

ight now as COVID-19 still looms overhead causing a lot of us to feel more scattered and confused than ever, it’s hard to think of specific ideas that might bring relief for our tired hearts and minds. Whether you’re working from home where your days seem to be mired in routine, or you’re separated from family members and your days feel lonely, it’s a welcome thought to know that it’s possible to find relief without ever leaving home. I recently completed a three-session series of classes entitled, “Heart Medicine-Meditation for Challenging Times” from The Drepung Gomang Center for Engaging Compassion. Through the instruction of Jenny Keller Bell, I learned it’s entirely possible to find freedom (and comfort) right inside my own heart and mind. I admit that I was somewhat reluctant to begin this class. For me, the thought of meditation conjures a vision of someone sitting in the lotus position (which I cannot do) chanting “Om” (which I don’t want to do). The thought of joining a virtual class on meditation via Zoom where I would interact with strangers felt intimidating, but I am glad I gave it a try. Each of the three classes lasted a little over an hour, had five students, and wasn’t the least bit scary for a beginner. I wasn’t expecting Jenny to teach us about the history and different types of meditation; nor was I expecting to hear great examples of how to use it and why it works, but this is the way each of the three sessions began. She would start out with a lesson about the practice and later would lead us in a guided meditation. Afterwards, class members would share

Try a meditation right on your own bed.

questions, thoughts and/or feelings if inclined. The entire experience felt relaxed and was very informative. The first meditation immediately put my “lotus position” fears to rest as she instructed us to make ourselves comfortable “any way” we wished. (I happened to be on the floor of my office because that’s where I had to be.) She told us she purposely refrains from telling her students what positions to use because relaxation is different for all of us. (Yes!) I especially enjoyed her method of guiding the meditation, which encourages being present in each moment, (something easily lost by those struggling with full schedules and by those who feel stuck in a routine.) Her soothing voice coupled with her descriptive yet relaxing narratives made it simple to follow along. Having a skilled leader in guided meditation is important because someone who

is too rigid about breathing a certain way or too relaxed about descriptions can frustrate a beginner like me. A frustrated beginner doesn’t want to move forward with learning. For me, the biggest take-away from all three classes is that meditation and mindfulness are very easy to practice but not always the first things we remember to do. Making a regular habit of training the mind to focus and redirect feelings and thoughts helps increase concentration and reduce stress. (It’s helpful to take classes like this to learn how.) Being present in the moments of our lives, even the mundane ones, keeps the mind from wandering off into thoughts that aren’t beneficial and fears that most often aren’t rational or real. Also, if I’d listened to my inner “you won’t like this,” I’d have missed out on a wonderful experience and a lot of learning.

Caregiver Circle

By Lindsay McDonald

Practical solutions for making caregiving easier.

ENTERTAIN AND ENGAGE

Be Prepared For Doctor Visits

Taking the elderly to a physician’s appointment allows them to get out of the house and be engaged in their own health issues by confiding in their physician and receiving a reassuring response. Developing a good plan for regular medical follow up is important to: • Allow for plenty of time so they do not feel rushed. • Have all the essentials on hand: a snack, change of undergarments if needed, additional medication doses in case the visit is prolonged, applicable paperwork and X-rays from other physicians, and of course now, a mask. • Schedule the appointment at an optimal time for your elderly family member or friend so they will be at their best. —Kayla Cook, RN and Owner of Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services

CREATE A SAFE HOME Fall prevention is top on the list for safe care for older adults. We encourage families to have well-lit hallways for loved ones with visual impairment. I recently attended a workshop on dementia care that made us put on special glasses, which decreased the lighting by 30% to emulate what it is like to have dementia. It was so difficult to see that none of us thought to open the blinds or turn on a light. Also, make sure you don’t have any throw rugs that could lead to a fall. — Angela Leinenbach, University of Louisville Associate Professor/Nurse Practitioner 42 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

• Drop off pre-packaged craft supplies. Make sure the packages are easy to open and directions are written large. • Help them do some face-to-face online communication or join their church’s live stream worship services. • Set up a call schedule for friends and family. • Check out what happened on a certain date in history. • Have flowers delivered. Bring them a meal. Set them up with audio books. Be creative and consistent. — Kayla Cook, RN and Owner of Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services

Have Grab-and-Go Foods On Hand

If you are living with an adult with dementia who will not sit down for a meal, have finger foods such as sandwiches on hand to grab-andgo so they don’t miss out on important nutrition. Also, encourage fluids and make it easy to grab a drink to stay hydrated. — Angela Leinenbach, University of Louisville Associate Professor/Nurse Practitioner

I LOVE MY...

“I love my...father’s letters.”

G

wen Mayes describes herself as a sentimentalist who is passionate about writing. She’s written professionally as a result of her career in health policy and even served as a columnist for Today’s Woman magazine in the early 2000s. More important to Gwen, however, is her love for personal, handwritten letters. When asked what item she loves the most, her answer was easy — her greatest treasure is a bound copy of Letters to My Mother: 1944-1946, written by her father, James Henry Mayes, as he was serving in the army during World War II.

44 Winter 2020-2021 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

— Gwen Mayes

Gwen’s father grew up in a poor family and was drafted like many other young men at the time. He was 19 years old and served for about three years, primarily in Germany. James had four sisters, the oldest of whom was the matriarch of the family and a surrogate mother to him. This loving sister, Lila McCoin, was still at home while he served overseas, and the letters he penned during the war were written to her. Returning from the war, James Mayes had a successful career in the Kentucky State Police, raised a loving family, and passed away in 1991 due to complications associated with adult diabetes. In 2010, when her father had been gone nearly two decades, Gwen attended a family reunion where she saw her Aunt Lila’s son, O.B. “Butch” McCoin. Cousin Butch had recently been going through his mother’s possessions and found some letters that his mother Lila had stashed away. Butch had them bound into a book for Gwen. There are more than 50 letters in total, each in remarkably good condition. James wrote about V-J Day and about joining General Patton’s 3rd Army. He treated Czechoslovakian children to candy treats at Christmas. He told about finding 19 German soldiers in a barn one day toward the end of the war. Those soldiers surrendered as prisoners because they were afraid of being killed by Russians. A common thread Gwen found in all the letters was her father’s positivity. “He always had an incredible vision of coming home even when he was sitting in a foxhole,” Gwen says. “My dad has been gone almost half my life,” Gwen says. “We never knew these letters existed until long after he died...it just goes to show that when we are living our lives on a day-to-day basis, we don’t know how important it’s going to be for somebody in the future.” As Gwen reads portions of the letters, we learn in one letter that Lila was able to send fudge to her brother in Germany. Gwen smiles as she reads the postscript in her father’s next letter: “P.S. Send more fudge.” No doubt that special treat meant a lot to James and his fellow soldiers. These letters are a treasure for Gwen. In them, she has learned even more about the father she adored.

Home Health Directory

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.

REMORSE MAY BE GOOD

T

By Bob Mueller

here are some guilts which must be faced and dealt with or they become dark shadows over the remainder of our lives. I cannot count the times I have heard such laments as, “Why did I not call the doctor sooner?” or, “Why did I not pay more attention to him or her when we were together?” or, “Why did I say those harsh words that were so unnecessary? Or, “Why did I do what I did?” Do not miss the value of remorse, however. It can be a cleansing and a good experience in our lives. Thinking about past wrongs and mistakes brings to us an inner restlessness. Thoughts of the past can destroy all peace of mind in the present. Self-reproach and shame just do not go far enough, but remorse can lead us in the right direction. The first step is simple confession and repentance. It has often been said, “Confession is good for the soul but bad for the reputation.” That is true, and because it is the truth, there is a lot of confession that should be made to God and God alone. There are times when confession should be made to some other person. Maybe it is a person whom you have wronged or your confession may be made to a trusted counselor. Confession leads to amends when that is possible. If one steals money from

another, many times it can be paid back. Other times, amends are not possible. Unkind words are difficult to erase, and the repeating of them hurts more than it helps. Maybe we failed to render services when the opportunity came, but now the opportunity is gone, and there is nothing we can do about it. There are three steps that must be taken when one feels remorse: penitence, pardon, and peace. The first one we do ourselves, the second we accept for ourselves, and the third is an unmerited award. When we repent of some past wrong, it is the best that is within us crying out for fulfillment. It means that we turn away from that which we regret. True penitence is our intention to embrace what is good and to live the best we can with God’s help by those virtues which are highest. Sorrow over the past is recognition that we have done wrong – that perhaps we have pained someone else and certainly ourselves. True penitence will kill impulses for evil, which are alive in our hearts.

Do not be sad that you feel sorry about something in the past. Be glad that you feel sorry. William L. Sullivan said it beautifully, “There is in repentance this beautiful mystery that we may fly fastest home on a broken wing.” The inability to repent is probably the worst imprisonment that any person can experience. The ability to repent means that there is the possibility of freedom – to turn “right about face,” to change your mind – and most importantly – to start a new life. There is an old story of a man who stopped at a country store to ask the distance to a certain town. The reply was, “If you continue in the direction you are going, it will be about 25,000 miles, but if you turn around, it will be about three miles.” Repentance means the freedom to turn around. That is glorious and wonderful. Even more importantly, repentance leads to forgiveness. Bob Mueller is the retired Mission & Stewardship Officer at Hosparus Health. www.bobmueller.org
