SUNDOWNING The problems that occur when the sun goes down

By Carrie Vittitoe

U

nless you care for or live with a loved one who has dementia, you may not know exactly what sundowning is. “[Sundowning] is a phenomenon where patients with dementia have behavioral disturbances that peak, and seem to get worse, over the course of the day. They get worse in the late afternoon or early evening,” says Norton Neuroscience Institute neuropsychologist Brandon Dennis, PsyD. While it is a common condition amongst dementia patients, it causes both they and their loved ones considerable stress and anxiety.

Pat Scott, a Louisville resident who was a caregiver to her mother Neola Brooks for a decade, coordinates a number of support groups for caregivers of Alzheimer’s patients. Caregivers report that patients who experience sundowning “can get anxious, they can get mean, they can cry, or they may pace around the house. A lot of the caregivers will say [patients] get really agitated toward the evening,” she says. Alzheimer’s disease and its symptoms are varied based on the person. “If you’ve seen one Alzheimer’s patient, you’ve seen one Alzheimer’s patient,” Pat says, and this is the case when it comes to sundowning. She says some patients want to sit in a dark room in the afternoon or early evening, while others want to get out of the house. Every individual has a circadian rhythm, which is an internal clock of sorts that helps humans regulate when

When sundowning occurs in a care facility, it may be related to the flurry of activity during staff shift changes or the lack of structured activities in the late afternoon and evening. Staff arriving and leaving may cue some people with Alzheimer’s to want to go home or to check on their children — or other behaviors that were appropriate in the late afternoon in their past. — Jonathan Graff-Radford, M.D., MayoClinic.org

they sleep, wake, and do everything in between. Dr. Dennis says normal aging changes a person’s circadian rhythm. “People over time have reduced sleep time, more arousals and awakenings, and they spend more time in lighter sleep,” he says. Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia change circadian rhythms even more to where they become disabling. Sundowning is not a dementia symptom that comes and goes. “It won’t be a spotty behavior,” Dr. Dennis says. Patients are more likely to experience sundowning if they have moderate dementia. While someone with severe dementia may still have sleep disturbances, that person often doesn’t have the motor or verbal abilities to express agitation or restlessness as they once did. The agitation or anxiety associated with sundowning can become a feedback loop between the patient and his or her caregiver. A dementia patient who is agitated may stress out a caregiver, who is tired from a day of tending to the needs of the loved one. This may cause the caregiver to become agitated, which then makes the patient more agitated. Dr. Dennis says many dementia caregivers have full-time jobs and children of their own, which means they are likely tired at the time of day when sundowning behaviors occur. When Pat was caring for her mom, who experienced sundowning, she would use redirection to help reduce agitation for both her mom and herself. “She liked to watch Christian videos or Elvis Presley videos. If she got really upset, I’d say, ‘Come on, let’s watch this.’ It would divert her attention to the TV,” she says. She says it is important for caregivers to have some options in their toolbox to use as a distraction. “You find out what ticks

their boxes, what things they like to do,” she says. That may be looking through photo albums and reminiscing. It might be reading them a book or listening to music. Pat’s mother was in pretty good physical shape and had enjoyed line dancing prior to her diagnosis. “I could put country music on; she could barely remember her name, but she could remember those steps,” she says. While younger people may take over-the-counter or prescription medications to help them sleep or regulate their sleep-wake cycle, pharmaceuticals can make dementia patients groggy and more confused than they already are. Dr. Dennis recommends increasing physical activity and ensuring meals are eaten at regular times during the day. He says Rozerem, a medication for insomnia, shows some promise, but more studies need to be done, and it may not be as effective as researchers hope for sundowning symptoms. While dementia itself impacts sleep, he says it is always a good idea to go back to basics, ensuring that the room temperature is cool, there are no TV, phone, or pet distractions, and that the mattress and pillow are of good quality. Caregivers whose loved ones experience sundowning may find comfort, support, and resources by contacting the Greater Kentucky and Indiana chapters of the Alzheimer’s Association (https://www.alz.org/kyin). Pat uses her experience as a caregiver to help others understand the disease, tend to their loved ones, and manage their own stressors. “You have to realize the disease is controlling them; they have no control over themselves. Your duty as the caregiver is to try to calm them down and redirect,” she says.

y first act as a mother was to hold my newborn. The intense power of that moment solidified my emotional connection to my son. Then when I visited my grandmother in the hospital, my initial instinct was to take her hand in mine like I’d done countless times as a little girl. The act of touch is a powerful form of communication when words aren’t available or when they fail. What happens if those extraordinary

moments of physical connection aren’t allowed — especially for those facing end-of-life experiences with beloved friends and family?

Touch is a fundamental component of human bonding. Studies show that touch demonstrates compassion and offers comfort. The pandemic is asking that people alter this basic truth. With social distancing practices in place, many family members are saying goodbye from a distance. Waving through windows, video chatting, and phone calls are some of the ways loved ones attempt to maintain some level of connection with those in isolation. All of these leave out the closeness and closure that touch brings them. While distancing precautions are installed to protect the healthy, this action has altered the grief process for those losing a loved one. Amy Hill, LCSW executive director of Counseling Services for Hosparus Health in Louisville, says, “I think not having that physical connection at the end really adds to the struggles of grief and loss. There’s something that’s just really not natural about that experience.” Hosparus Health opened its doors in 1978 and is committed to offering planning and counseling services for families and patients that deal with end-of-life situations. This is why the Hosparus organization is taking steps to help individuals cope with this lack of physical contact and the complex grief this can cause. One way to begin to understand personal grief and how it plays a role in the healing process is to talk with a Hosparus grief counselor. “We provide counseling to any patient in our hospice care who’s experiencing grief prior to and after the death of their loved one. We also provide free counseling to anybody in the community,” Amy says. Hosparus counseling sessions are led by licensed professionals. These meetings are designed so those wanting help can get the tools they need to feel supported. Amy says that Hosparus has different types of counseling. “We do individual counseling, but a lot of people really benefit from being around other people who are in the same boat.” All of their group meetings have up to 10 people, and because of social distancing a great many of these counseling sessions are conducted online. Amy says this has been a really effective way to provide care during this time. Speaking our thoughts and feelings aloud to a counselor gives value to our emotional experience. But when it comes to being unable to have the closure a final touch can bring, Amy relays that Hosparus wants to be a supportive resource for people who are dealing with this. “It’s like nothing any of us have ever really dealt with on this level,” she says. This is why they are using different methods to help those experiencing loss to find physical comfort. To help feel that physical connection without physically being there, Hosparus bridges the gap with a Thumbprint Stone. They use this with their hospice patients at the end of their lives. It’s a process that uses 12 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

“I THINK NOT HAVING THAT PHYSICAL CONNECTION AT THE END REALLY ADDS TO THE STRUGGLES OF GRIEF AND LOSS. THERE’S SOMETHING THAT’S JUST REALLY NOT NATURAL ABOUT THAT EXPERIENCE.” — AMY HILL, HOSPARUS HEALTH clay to make imprints of the patients’ fingerprints. These are baked and become hard and can be carried by the family to keep a physical reminder of that person close. “Having something that you can hold and carry really helps,” Amy says. Another method counselors are employing simulates a hug. Margaret Cox, LMFT and child and adolescent grief counselor with Hosparus in Louisville, says to find an old T-shirt or sweatshirt that belonged to a person’s loved one with their scent still present. Then take this shirt and stuff it with pillows or even place the shirt on a favorite stuffed animal. Now a person can recreate a hug or simulate being held. “To deepen this experience, imagine a time when you felt especially loved and connected with your loved one,” Margaret says. To find more opportunities for physical comfort, Margaret recommends asking the family members with which a person is isolating for hugs or turning everyday tasks such as hand washing into opportunities for nurturing. “When washing your hands imagine infusing love into your hands using your favorite scented soap. Then give yourself a hug for taking a few extra seconds to offer and receive love.” Austin Stethen, LMHCA, grief counselor in Southern Indiana, suggests setting up a space with the belongings of a loved one using blankets, articles of clothing, or other meaningful possessions. It’s important to note that everyone’s journey through grief is different. Amy says anyone working through the grief process needs to take the time to experience this at a pace that best suits them. “Many people put judgment into how they are experiencing their grief, and the answer is that there is no right or wrong way to grieve because it is very personal to that individual.”

It’s Heck Getting Old!

By Yelena Sapin

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

PROBLEM:

Diminished Sense of Smell and Taste It’s common to experience temporary loss of smell and taste when sick or suffering from allergies. Congestion and inflammation of the nasal passages can block the flow of scent particles to the olfactory nerves that are responsible for processing the signals, explains Dr. Kevin Potts, an ENT with UofL Physicians. And when we can’t smell food, we can’t enjoy its taste. We may also experience a gradual decline in the overall ability to smell, and subsequently taste, over time. “As we age, olfactory nerve cells don’t regenerate at the rate that they do when we’re young,” Dr. Potts says.

SOLUTION: Address Medical Conditions

There are many medical conditions — and many medications — that could be the cause of loss of smell or taste, Dr. Potts says. Work with your doctor to identify and treat any underlying problems. If there is obstruction to the air flow due to chronic nasal inflammation or nasal polyps, for example, the right treatment can improve or potentially reverse the loss of smell. For loss of taste, your doctor might want to rule out infections such as oral thrush and review any medications you are taking.

14 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

SOLUTION: Exercise Your Senses Regularly engaging the neural pathways for smell and taste can help keep them in condition, stave off degeneration, and even help reverse some sensory loss, Dr. Potts says. To stimulate your olfactory nerves, choose your favorite strong aromas and sniff them several times throughout the day. You can use any pungent items you already have in your kitchen such as ginger, garlic, or lemon, or try essential oils. Similarly, you can exercise your sense of taste with a variety of strongly flavored foods and spices. Make sure to chew your food thoroughly so that you’re distributing the taste molecules to as many taste buds as you can.



Prepare to Recover Quickly From Surgery By Carrie Vittitoe

W

hile surgery might not be something patients look forward to, in many cases surgery will provide some kind of relief either from pain or disease. There are many different kinds of surgeries, from bariatric to gynecologic to thoracic, and each one comes with its own unique set of preparations. However, this guide offers some suggestions to help patients feel better faster no matter the surgery they have.

Preparing in advance One of the most important things patients can do to help their postoperative recovery is to prepare in advance. Rather than waiting until after surgery to see what they need, it is in every patient’s best interest to ask their surgeons what to expect and prepare their home accordingly. While taking a waitand-see approach can be logical in some instances, patients and their caregivers want to stay at home after surgery and not worry about rushing to acquire items that would make recovery better after the fact.

Resting It is very important to the healing process that patients get ample rest, and this can be difficult to do while in the hospital because of nursing shift changes and vitals checks. However, once a patient returns home, getting adequate rest can also feel tricky due to pain and immobility. PAGE 18>>

Dos and Don’ts of Recovery Scott Jerke of VNA Health at Home and Dr. Nyagon Duany of Norton Orthopedic Institute offer the following dos and don’ts for surgical recovery:

16 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

DO always follow the restrictions that your surgeon gives you. DON’T try to do too much too soon. DO prepare yourself for not just the physical recovery, but the mental and emotional recovery. DON’T handle wounds until you are instructed to.

If you have joint surgery, DON’T fly until recommended by your surgeon due to the risk of blood clots. If you go on a trip and are driving, DO perform periodic ankle pumping exercises while seated in the car and stop every hour to get out and walk.



<<PAGE 16

Dr. Nyagon Duany, an orthopedic surgeon with Norton Orthopedic Institute who specializes in shoulder and knee surgeries, tells her patients to expect a certain amount of discomfort that will impact their sleep. “You’ll be limited in your position and how you can move. For most kinds of surgeries, you’re going to become a back sleeper,” she says. Depending on the type of shoulder surgery a patient has, they will be in a sling for two to six weeks. The reality, though, is “people weren’t getting good sleep anyway; they could not sleep at night because their shoulder hurt so badly,” Dr. Duany says. Scott Jerke, director of rehabilitation services at VNA Health at Home, says getting on a schedule for pain medicine is something to consider in terms of getting adequate rest. “If you go to bed at 9pm, you wouldn’t necessarily want to be taking your pain pill at 5am,” he says. It may take a few days to figure out the best routine.

Bathing/showering While patients look forward to that first deep clean after surgery, they need to follow their surgeon’s discharge instructions to ensure their wound doesn’t become infected or compromised. When it comes to showering, “most of us [surgeons] say, generically, three days. Keep your wound clean and dry for three days,” Dr. Duany says. “We [also] now have waterproof dressings, which are usually the same color as the flesh.” It isn’t just the wound itself that needs to be considered when it comes to post-surgical showering. “Once you are given that green light [to shower], you want to make sure to have someone there with you to help, especially getting in and out and maybe even more so for people stepping over a tub. That might not seem quite as hard as you think, but if you’re a little unsteady or have had surgery on a lower extremity or back, that can be difficult,” Jerke says. An older adult who knows a surgery is coming may want to invest in having grab bars installed in the bathroom and purchase a non-slip bath mat from a discount medical shop to minimize the likelihood of a fall. A post-surgical patient is tired and sore anyway, so a fall in the shower will only make recovery more difficult (and could result in even more surgery). A handheld showerhead is also a good idea.

Adaptive tools Some surgeries require adaptive tools and devices. For example, individuals who have knee-replacement surgery are nearly always instructed to acquire a walker, and individuals who have shoulder or wrist surgery will have a sling or cast. Patients are encouraged to check with their surgeons to see what tools and devices are recommended. There are sometimes cases in which an adaptive tool may be needed for a special event, even though that tool isn’t therapeutic. For example, using a wheelchair after knee-replacement may not be advisable over the long-term because the patient needs to move and strengthen the knee by walking, but there may be situations for which a wheelchair is temporarily useful. “Let’s say you’ve just had 18 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

surgery and you’ve got a wedding to go to, a very unique event. In that case, it would make sense to have a wheelchair so that you’re not walking too much for that short period of time,” Jerke says.

Taking medication Post-surgical patients typically go home with at least one prescribed medication from their surgeons. “In orthopedics, there’s not a lot of medications we prescribe. It’s usually pain medication, sometimes anti-nausea medication from the anesthesia, and also anti-constipation medications like Colace or Senna,” Dr. Duany says. She says patients who have joint replacement surgeries are often temporarily prescribed blood thinning medication. While some may be told to take aspirin, others are prescribed coumadin or warfarin, which must be monitored. Jerke says it is important to consider the possible side effects of these medications. “You could be taking new meds that might start affecting you in different ways: constipation, dizziness, or making you need to get up more often to go to the bathroom,” Jerke says. One of the most critical things a patient can do to ensure a safe recovery is to let the surgeon know any and all medications they take, even if they take them only occasionally. Jerke gives the example of a patient who had joint replacement surgery and was taking the physician-prescribed blood thinner. When her pain medication wasn’t as effective as she needed, she began taking aspirin, which is also a blood thinner. Additions of overthe-counter, occasional medications could potentially be deadly. “Don’t just assume that it’s OK, whatever you’ve got in your home, just because you’ve taken it before,” he says.

Increasing activity The amount of activity an individual can do following surgery often depends on the surgical site. For example, a person in a sling from shoulder replacement can still get exercise from walking, while a person who had knee surgery is often limited by pain and won’t jump back into activity. While most patients generally take post-surgical activity slowly, there are some who begin physical therapy and think doing more exercise has to be better than doing just what their therapist recommends, but this is not the case. “For rotator cuff surgery, the rotator cuff has to heal to the bone, which takes on average about six weeks. If you do something in the first six weeks that you’re not supposed to do, you risk that repair and [could] go back to square one. The first six weeks, we do passive range of motion, which means the therapist moves your arm. You’re not reaching and grabbing things,” Dr. Duany says.

COVID-19 concerns Dr. Duany says prior to surgery, patients are given hospitalarranged COVID-19 tests and instructed to quarantine at home between their test and surgery in an effort to minimize risks to both patients and their health care team. Jerke says visiting nurses and other health care providers will don masks and other personal protective gear when coming to patients’ homes to provide therapy and do wound checks.



What Her Day Looks Like

ebra Finneran considers herself fortunate to have been able to pursue a life-long career doing what she loves. For over 40 years, Debra has been a passionate advocate for senior health services and long-term care, most recently serving as senior vice president of Health Services for Masonic Homes Kentucky.

Newly retired, Debra Finneran still gets up early like she is going to work and keeps her days busy outside and getting together with family and friends.

Debra knew she would miss many aspects of her work when she retired at the end of last year, but she welcomed the opportunity to make changes and spend more time with family and friends. Embracing the transition to a different lifestyle, Debra moved into a new home, enjoyed a long visit with her mother in Florida, and joined a golf league. The newfound flexibility of retirement has also allowed Debra to see a lot more of her 2-year-old twin grandchildren, who live in Louisville. “It has really been wonderful, and I think my son now appreciates his mother in a way he may not have before,” she jokes. Her plans to stay involved with seniors through volunteer work are currently on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic, but Debra is optimistic for the future. “Like all of us I’ve had to make some adjustments,” she says, “but I’m very confident that I’ll find those opportunities to help.” PAGE 22>>

Day

In My Life Debra Finneran

Debra has been maintaining her pre-retirement routine when it comes to waking up in the morning.

Debra and Debbie Goldberg, her former college roommate and Delta Zeta sorority sister at the University of Kentucky, get together every week for good talks and a favorite glass of wine.

Debra cooks for one of her Sunday family dinners.

22 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Maintaining Routines I was used to going into an office for so many years, and I’m still waking up at around 6:30 or 6:45 like clockwork. I don’t even need an alarm. I get up and get myself ready for the day, just like I would if I were going to work. I drink my coffee while flipping through my phone and checking emails, try to catch a little news, and read up on what’s happening in the healthcare sector. I don’t eat much breakfast. All those years I was working, I just grabbed my coffee and maybe a piece of toast and out the door I went. I guess I’m still a creature of habit, and that seems to work really well for me. I’m not very happy with myself if I’m not productive, and habits and routines are good for my productivity. Planning the Day I’m a list maker and a get-it-done girl. But for me, the real joy of being retired is being able to plan the day so that there is time for people who are special in my life. I work on getting together at least two or three days a week with close friends, family, or someone I haven’t seen in a while. I might play golf, or pick up some lunch and take it over to a friend’s house. We don’t really go to restaurants right now, but we can sit on the porch together and have lunch or a potluck dinner. And of course I try to see the grandchildren several times a week if I can. I do stay pretty busy socially, so I’m not clocking a lot of couch time. I might catch a little Netflix or TV in the evening, but by 11 I’m usually calling it a night. Family Dinners I make plans to get together every Sunday afternoon with my son and family. They usually come to my house, and we enjoy each other’s company and have dinner. I was never a great cook, but I’m working on that. I find myself watching more cooking shows on KET, and my son even complimented me last week that my cooking is better than it used to be. We really try to keep up that Sunday family tradition, and we also have some friends that join us on occasion.



Book Club

By Vanessa Hutchison

Featuring: Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal

W

hile the pandemic may continue to force us to social distance, great books will always be able to bring us together and allow us to travel to new places and experience new cultures. That is why the Louisville Book Babes book club hasn’t let the current state of the world derail its mission to devour great literature. Despite the fact that the camaraderie and discussions have moved online, the group is just as lively as ever. And their latest delicious read, Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows by Balli Kaur Jaswal, is just the most recent in a long line of books that provide strong female protagonists and windows to the world.

How did the group select this book?

Louisville Book Babes Book Club WHEN: Meets monthly

We are always looking for great new books to read and discuss. At the end of each meeting, the group takes suggestions from our members about the next book, and then tries to reach a consensus on which one to choose. This book appealed to us because it was also on Reese Witherspoon’s book list, which always features well written stories about strong women. In that regard, Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows did not disappoint. What is the book about?

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!

Without giving too much away, the book is about several generations of Sikh women, each of whom navigate the world and their culture in their own way. They are connected through a creative writing class that the main character teaches, and the stories that they write in that class and their relationships with each other have a profound effect

on their lives. Parts of the book are as sexy as the title implies, but most of it is just getting to know these incredible women and their struggles with simultaneously being part of a very traditional culture and living in a modern world. How has your group changed since moving online?

Honestly, the book discussions haven’t changed much. There is less wine, maybe, but we still use Facebook to contact the authors of each book we read. That is a lot of fun. In May, we read Big Sexy Love by Kirsty Greenwood, and the author shared some discussion questions that we used to guide us. And Balli Kaur Jaswal, the author of Erotic Stories, has been great as well. I think these authors actually really like talking to us and seeing that we are reading their books. They often provide great background information and are almost always really responsive.

15 MINUTES WITH

Cathy Shannon

Cathy Shannon holds a degree in advertising, marketing, and public relations from the University of Louisville — knowledge that has come in handy now that she works full-time at E&S Gallery. The gallery was founded by her husband Walter Shannon in 1989 and represents works of African-American artists. Cathy is currently working to earn her MFA in Art History and Critical and Curatorial Studies at the University of Louisville.

How do you find the artists you represent?

Sometimes an artist approaches us and other times we approach an artist. Or maybe a client recommends a particular artist. We attend professional organization conferences and conventions and meet other artists that way, too. Typically from March to October we travel to art shows and exhibit maybe 20 of the 60 or 70 artists that we represent. This year, all of the shows were canceled due to the coronavirus. Who do you represent?

We represent Kentucky and national African-American artists — sculptors, quilters, collage artists, painters. Two of our artists paint as one. They are identical twin brothers who paint on the same canvas at the same time. If one paints something the other one doesn’t like it gets painted over so it’s a constant process until they finally agree that the piece is completed and sign it. But, there may be 10 different originals under the finished product. What type of art are you drawn to?

I definitely appreciate a beautiful piece of art. Art can speak to me in different ways. Sometimes it’s the style of the artist, the message or theme of a particular piece, the technique that the artist uses, and sometimes the art and artist come with interesting stories. 26 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

What do you see as the purpose of art?

To tell a story, capture a moment in time, interpret events, and to bring joy. An inspiring experience?

We represent artist and sculptor Elizabeth Catlett, who at age 16 in the 1930s applied to the School of Fine Arts at Carnegie Institute of Technology (now Carnegie Mellon University) and was accepted. When they discovered she was African-American, she was refused admission.

“I DEFINITELY APPRECIATE A BEAUTIFUL PEACE OF ART.” — CATHY SHANNON I recounted this story to a group in Pittsburgh where Carnegie Mellon is located, and someone from the president’s office was in attendance. She related the story to the president, who decided that the injustice needed to be corrected. In 2008, the school gave Elizabeth — she was in her 80s by then — an honorary doctorate degree and a one-woman show. She died four years later.

What is important about public art?

I serve on the Committee for Public Art for the city of Louisville, which offers grants to artists. Beauty and interpretation of events is important, and public art funding and support for the artists enhances our community aesthetic and tells a story. Plans for the future of the gallery?

We plan on being in Louisville for a long time. When you do something you enjoy it makes sense to enjoy it as long as you can.

What were your plans for yourself?

I dreamed of being an advertising rep. I grew up watching Bewitched and that’s what Darrin the husband did. That inspired me. Advice for aspiring artists and business owners?

Be committed to being your best. Take classes to improve your art. In order to run a successful business, know that your reputation is everything. Don’t take any shortcuts and operate with integrity.

She Tried It:

Virtual Home Yoga During COVID-19 Submitted photo

F

or years I’ve experienced a deep nagging in my soul to practice yoga. I know the mind, body, and spirit benefits of it, and being an inherently spiritual person, it makes perfect sense for me. However, each time I’ve thought about going to an actual class, I’ve dismissed the idea fearing my lack of coordination would be disruptive to those around me. (The recurring mental picture is one of me either falling onto the person next to me, screaming an expletive because of pain, or some combination of the two.) My reluctance is based on past experience trying to do yoga at home via some type of “Beginners Yoga” CD. Literally every time I’ve tried, I’ve turned it off in the middle, aggravated at not being able to hold the poses being taught. Last time I was so frustrated that I threw out my yoga mat declaring I’d never try again. That is until recently when I decided I am not a quitter (and my doctor suggested I try again to combat the effects of arthritis.) Because of COVID-19 and being unsure of myself, I decided to look for a locally hosted virtual yoga class. I really want and need help with strengthening my core and my flexibility. I decided to try Louisville’s YMCA 360 with Kiesha. I chose “Deep Stretch Yoga Practice,” which lasts a little over 27 minutes. There were many other practices to try, but I opted for this because of the stretching. This practice uses two simple tools: a mat and a strap. I had neither (see above disposal of former yoga mat) so I used a towel and a necktie. I don’t mind admitting that even though I was in the comfort of my own living room, I was nervous to begin. It was tough getting my stiff body on the floor! Kiesha starts out on her knees in “hero’s pose,” which is impossible for me. Thankfully, she immediately mentions to sit in whatever position is comfortable. (This practice can be done seated in a chair if necessary. She offers instruction for this throughout the session). In a very soothing voice, she begins by explaining the importance of breathing and right away, I learned something new. Deep breathing actually stretches the inside of the body, supports the cardiovascular system and calms the mind. Seated upper body stretching poses were first, which I found very doable. Lower body poses were a bit more challenging

for me, but I pushed through. I felt encouraged to keep going each time I successfully held a pose even if it wasn’t perfect. Kiesha’s peaceful demeanor and clear instructions helped me want to continue. At times it wasn’t easy, especially the poses that opened the hips, but not once did I feel like quitting. In fact, when I finished, I felt so accomplished and happy, I decided to try it again the following day to see how much my flexibility might have improved. I am happy to report that I have practiced “Deep Stretch Yoga” online for five days in a row. My balance and coordination are improving; my core feels stronger as I am able to hold the poses longer and deeper; my joints feel less tightness; my breathing is improving and best of all, I want to continue. (Hello, new yoga mat. I see you.)

WHAT I KNOW NOW

Mike Berry Mike Berry served with the Kentucky Derby Festival for 33 years and retired in 2019 after serving 22 years as its president and CEO. He says he was prepared to start his second career — retirement — when he was asked by then-Governor-elect Andy Beshear to serve as Secretary of the Kentucky Tourism, Arts & Heritage Cabinet. Pre-COVID 19, what were your plans for the cabinet?

My intention was to visit every state park, but that was put on hold, and instead I was tasked with closing the state parks along with the Kentucky Exposition Center (in the middle of a dog show), Kentucky International Convention Center, Kentucky Center for the Arts, and Kentucky Crafted Market. Is this your first job in government?

I worked in the office of Gov. Martha Layne Collins from 1983 to 1987. Gov. Collins was the first to make tourism its own cabinet office. Now there are 13 different agencies that fall under Tourism, Arts & Heritage. What did you plan on doing in retirement?

I thought I would get involved in volunteer activities, spend time in Florida, and have time with my grandchildren. I was hoping to do more traveling, but trips I had planned for 2020 — one to Africa and one to Switzerland — got canceled. What were your early plans for yourself?

I wanted to be in politics. In grade school, I worked as a page for the State Senate when Julian Carroll was lieutenant governor and also when he was governor. Something that’s not on your resume?

I am a theater buff. As recently as five or six 30 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

years ago, I performed on stage with Music Theatre Louisville in the musical 1776. I also performed in Oliver! and Brigadoon.

Mike Berry

What was your worst job?

As a fundraiser for the fraternity I was in at Georgetown College, we hung tobacco. We had to bring it in from the field, unload the wagon, and hang it in the barn to dry. The leaves would cut you, and I would come home with tobacco gum all over my skin. A defining moment?

It was a bittersweet moment. I was VP managing director of the Derby Festival under CEO Dan Mangeot. In 1997, he died suddenly about 100 days before the festival was to start, and I was offered that position. His death reinforced my belief that people in your life never really leave you if they have imparted their knowledge and courage. They become part of your life and who you are. The best way to get along with people?

There are times when disagreement is the order of the day and you can agree to disagree and not be disagreeable. Communication can be a salve for anything. Pet peeve?

Bigotry of any kind. We’re all in this together, and it takes a lot of different colors and fabrics to make a quilt.

What is on your mind right now?

What’s happening in Louisville — the protests and demonstrations — breaks my heart, but I believe we will come out of it through our collective love of the city. Our neighborhoods make Louisville a great place, but we also have a responsibility for the success of this city as a whole. Best advice you’ve received?

It was from my grandfather: “Always tell the truth, but

just don’t always be telling it.” I use that to keep myself from talking too much. What skills should every man have?

Be able to sew on a button; know how to can fruits and vegetables; and know how to braid a ponytail. My granddaughter got out of the pool one day and wanted her ponytail braided and no one — not her father or her brothers — knew how to do that. I did. That made me her hero.



Caregiver Circle

Practical solutions for making caregiving easier.

Outdoors Inside

During these days when it’s too hot to stay outside for long, consider bringing the outdoors to you. Try putting up bird feeders outside the window. A low platform or cardboard lid on the ground, sprinkled with seed, will attract chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits. Consider installing an outdoor microphone that will bring the sounds of the birds, the rain, and other neighborhood activity indoors. —Lisa Smith, director of Social Services and Neighborhood Engagement, Elderserve

Stay Engaged Here are a few suggestions on how to keep your loved ones socially engaged while maintaining social distancing. • Take your loved one out for a drive. • Set up a few social drive-bys with some friends and family so that you can talk with your children, grandchildren, and friends outside. • Get drive-thru ice cream or a meal. • Coordinate an end-of-the-driveway get together. Everyone (your neighbors) bring their own beverages, snacks, and lawn chairs. Invite someone to play music for all to enjoy.

• Book clubs are often fun for seniors. Everyone will read the book on their own and share a chapter a week over the phone with a book club buddy. Rotate discussion buddies. — Kayla Cook, RN/Owner, Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Service

Let’s Play a Game!

In this COVID-19 transition time, playing games virtually can be helpful and fun! Games are great for brain exercises. Try Yahtzee virtually. It can be a great empowerment tool for the one you are caring for. Also helps improve cognitive issues while conversing and using that brain power in decision making and problem solving. — Katherine Autin, founder/CEO of Visionary Caregivers, LLL and Parkinson Partners, LLC

HOME CARE SUPPORT When my patients require more help at home because of a sudden illness or multiple chronic illnesses, they are often disappointed that their health insurance does not pay for caregiving support. While health insurance benefits might include some personal care services one or two hours per week, they typically do not provide for ongoing custodial care. Custodial care refers to help with activities of daily living, such as preparing meals, bathing, help with dressing, or housekeeping. Most families must pay out of pocket for these services. If you cannot afford home care support or you’re looking for resources to help you choose the right services, I would recommend you visit KIPDA’s Aging and Disability Resource Center at kipda.org/social-services/aging-disability-resources/ or the National Alliance for Caregiving at caregiving.org. — Lori Earnshaw, Senior Hospice and Palliative Medicine physician, Hosparus Health 32 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

TECH TALK

Never Miss a Dose

Med reminders for keeping you on track.

Y

ou already know that the medicine your doctor prescribes will only work if you remember to take it. But life is busy, and remembering to take your medicine is not something you want to have to think about. Luckily, technology offers multiple solutions for this problem, so you can live your best life and minimize the time that you spend thinking about your medicine.

MediSafe (medisafe.com) k It seems like there’s an app for everything, and medicine reminders are no exception. This app allows you to input your own health data or import from your medical provider, and the robust scheduling interface makes it easy to set up alerts on a daily or weekly basis. Furthermore, Medisafe actually includes images of most of the pills that you are prescribed so that you can make sure you take the right medication at the right time, and even includes information about drug interactions between your prescriptions, helping to keep you safe. The free version of Medisafe is a full-featured app for IOS or Android with more features than most people will need, but it does offer a premium subscription for $39.95 a year, which removes ads and allows you to change in-app settings such as the sound of your reminders and the color of the app, as well as allowing you to connect accounts with family members or caretakers.

PillPack (pillpack.com) k If you are the sort of person who has trouble remembering to get prescriptions refilled, then Pillpack may be the solution that you are looking for. Pillpack is an online pharmacy unlike any other. It turns your prescriptions into a subscription that is sent to your home in convenient daily-dosed packages. Owned by online retailer Amazon, Pillpack coordinates with your doctors and insurance providers to gather your prescriptions in one centralized location, organizes your pills into individual packages that are printed with the day and time that you take them, and delivers your pills to your door. Incredibly, Pillpack offers its service for free, with the only cost being what you pay for your medications. To make it even simpler, the service allows you to sign up online or by phone.

TabTime (diabetesshop.com/product/tabtime-vibe/) k If you prefer a physical container that allows you to sort your medications yourself, TabTime may be right for you. With no app or online interface, the TabTime Vibrating Pill Reminder holds your sorted medications in five separate compartments while allowing you to set multiple timers that vibrate the device when it’s time to take your prescription. Because TabTime is a more low-tech option, it is perfect for those who do not have a smartphone or prefer to have more local control over their prescriptions. The device is reasonably priced at about $55, and may be the solution you need to remember to take your prescriptions on time. 34 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

VOLUNTEERS WHO ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE

A Louisville Leader John-Robert (JR) Curtin moved to Louisville in 1983 to serve as president and CEO at WKPC-TV Louisville’s Public Broadcasting station for what he thought would be a three-year position. He says he always found one reason or another to stay on in Louisville and now, 37 years later, remains an active part of the community.

Although he claims to be semi-retired, JR is author of On Civility: Restorative Reflections, a book of poetry which came out in August, and The Rocks of Connemara, another book of poetry slated to publish next year. He also teaches undergraduate and graduate students in civility and mediation at Indiana University Southeast, the University of Louisville, and Spalding University, and is CEO of Connected Learning Network and director and senior fellow at 4Civility Institute. Despite these commitments, JR also finds time to volunteer with multiple organizations including Leadership Louisville. How did you become involved with Leadership Louisville?

I was a charter member of Leadership Louisville’s Encore Louisville program started in 2014. We’re a group of experienced seniors from various 36 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

organizations and disciplines available to help nonprofits with strategic planning and advice. We offer highlevel consulting free of charge to nonprofits who may not be able to afford it otherwise. I looked at the other folks interested in participating in Encore and saw there were a whole lot of people I really liked and wanted to hang out with. I thought it was a great idea and that we could really help. For our volunteers these are short-term engagements, which gives us flexibility in our schedules. How has Encore been able to assist non-profits during the pandemic?

In response to the pandemic, Encore created a spin-off group, the Middleton Response Team, to help nonprofits who are struggling to cope with issues related to COVID-19. We went to groups like Metro United Way, Gheens Foundation,

Kosair Charities, and others to help us identify organizations that might need our expertise. These organizations can reach out to us, and we will pull a team together to help evaluate what their needs are and how we can help them move forward. What has been your approach to retirement?

I don’t think of myself as retired in the traditional way. I’m transitioning from things I’ve done before to things I want to do. I was told early on that you need to retire to something, not from something. I always thought about that and wanted to move toward something new — new challenges and opportunities. It’s important to at least be satisfied with what you’re doing. It’s what we really need to give us peace.

The Best Chocolate Chip Cookie in Louisville

A

couple of weeks ago, I wanted to find some amazing Louisville treats to keep my sweet tooth happy and buy local during these trying times. I ended up thinking it would be fun to select the business that bakes the best chocolate chip cookie in the whole city. After many, many samplings, I have my answer: Butchertown Grocery Bakery! While this is quite subjective, I did seek out objective qualifications to make my decision, so it was not a random or careless selection: Size: Gigantic Crisp, golden exterior: Yes Chewy, fully-baked interior: Yes High quality chocolate and butter: OH, YEAH Amount of chocolate: Generous Flavor: 10/10 Perfect amount of salt: Yep! Freshness: 10/10 (Still a little warm!) Appearance: WOW. You may have your own opinion of the best chocolate chip cookie in Louisville, but this is surely mine. I’ll be visiting Butchertown Grocery Bakery regularly for curbside pick-up of the perfect treat. Check out their full menu online, which includes items like coffee, handmade chocolate, cupcakes, bagels, breads, wine, bourbon, and warm meals. You can place orders in two easy ways: call 502.742.8315 and press 2 or visit ToastTab.com/butchertown. Now, ogle this sultry cookie photo shoot. When you’re done drooling, place an online order, safely pick it up, and enjoy! You deserve it.

Madeleine Dee declares that Butchertown Grocery Bakery is home to the best chocolate chip cookie in town.

I LOVE MY...

“I love my... photographs.”

I

—Betty Winston Baye

Betty Winston Baye is well-known in our community for her extensive work at The Courier-Journal, and she has found national acclaim as a published author, motivational speaker, and college lecturer. Her broad base of work covers critical topics such as race and social justice. This year, Betty joined WLKY to work as a columnist and special contributor for Project CommUNITY, which takes a look at these critical issues and their impact in our community, particularly as it connects with the Black Lives Matter movement. Given the passion Betty has for her work, one might expect her to choose a book or special piece of art as her mostloved item. “There are books everywhere in my house. I have old magazines, stuff I really value from the 60s, an extensive collection of African art, but when you ask what I value the most, it is my pictures,” she says. “I look at my photographs and remember...my mom, my dad, my husbands, my sweetheart... all of them have passed away now. They represent different phases of my life. If I had to leave and take one thing, it would

64 Fall 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

have to be my photographs.” There are special photos from the Black Journalists Conventions she has attended and other pictures that reflect her work and travels. Very special to her is the collection of pictures from her 50th birthday party, nearly 25 years ago. Betty was worried about having a birthday celebration that year because her mother was in New York and was very ill. Her mother convinced her to have it, reminding Betty that not having the party wouldn’t make her well. In addition to taking a lot of photos that day, they made a videotape for her mother and sent it to New York. “All the cousins and everyone at the party said ‘hi’ to mom on that tape. She watched it over and over again in the months before she died and told me it made her smile every time,” Betty recalls. Betty feels much the same way about those photos from her 50th, thinking fondly of her mom, her family, and her friends and about how quickly time passes. “I didn’t appreciate these things when I was young, but this is my life. I can’t replace 74 years of memories. This is the fruit of the Brown family tree.”

f you’d asked me this question some years ago, my answer would have been different. When I was younger, I would wonder why people have photographs all over their houses. They’re on the walls, on the tables, on the piano. I couldn’t understand it, and now I am one of those people.”

Betty’s new book The Book of David is available on Amazon or on her website, www.bettybaye.com.

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.

Finding Relief from Grief

The danger of crying longer than we should.

M

By Bob Mueller

ost of us know what it is to groan or to sigh. It is crying without tears. It is expressing your helplessness, your discouragement, your deepest yearnings, your harshest experiences. Many of our sighs stay within our hearts. They strain for expression. They yearn for communion with others, but they are left where they are — at the bottom of our hearts. Sometimes we sigh over the hurts of our children. Some of our sighs come as a result of the injustices of this world. We sigh for things that might have been in our own lives, but never were. We also sigh for things that were but did not have to be. Sometimes we sigh and ask, “Why?” Other times our sigh is, “Why not?” The point is, deep in our hearts there are some feelings that just cannot be expressed in words. No matter what has happened, we should not spend the rest of our lives sighing. Sighs can be turned into songs! In turning our sighs into songs there are several steps we must take. First, it is normal to groan, to sigh, to cry. I sometimes say to people, “Tear up or you will tear up.” Tears are often a preventive of tearing ourselves to pieces. The danger is that we keep on crying longer than we should. There comes a time when we need to start a new

life. We never forget our deep loves of yesterday. In fact we hold them in our hearts the remainder of our lives. We do, however, accept the fact that death is death, that divorce is divorce, that disappointment is disappointment. There is a time to go on and start living. I am not suggesting that we forget, but I am saying that there are new experiences down the road of life. We must reaffirm our belief that there is relief from grief. We need to start again remembering what happiness is and also begin reaching for as much of it as we can. Life is not over for you, and it is possible for you to find some happiness. It may not be the same happiness you have lost, maybe not as much, but at least some. An argument could be made that the word “why?” is the greatest enemy we have. Instead of asking why we have lost something, we should begin to take inventory as to what we have left. There is still some life in you. There are deeds to be done. There are people to be loved. There are things to be enjoyed. You do not need to make yourself feel guilty the next time you laugh. Plant firmly in your mind that you can keep going, no matter what has happened; that you have not lost everything, and that life goes on.

Some years ago Hannah Green wrote a novel entitled I Never Promised You a Rose Garden. Even if she had written nothing but the title, she said a lot. Let each of us ask ourselves the question, “Who has promised me a rose garden?” The truth is that nobody has the right to make that promise. It would be a promise that could not be kept. The more we think about the question “Why?,” the more we might be able to say, “Why not?” Instead of saying, “Why me?,” let us get to the place where we can honestly say, “Why not me?” It may bring the very wonderful results of overcoming in your mind and life the mystery of trouble and grief, and in its stead, give you the power of love and redemption.
