They Don’t Expect It, But We Want to Help

D

By Tiffany White, Editor

eborah May almost didn’t come to GuardiaCare’s Chocolate Dreams event, where she would be honored as the winner of our first Caregiver of the Year Award. Her

mother, whom she took care of for four years, died last month followed by the death of her uncle 10 days later. Deborah thought the worst was over, but on the day of the event, she called to tell me her cousin had died and that she wouldn’t be attending. The situation was sticky, because if she didn’t attend we wouldn’t be able to honor her in person with the award. I didn’t want to seem insensitive by insisting that she come, but I didn’t want her to miss out on a opportunity to be honored as a giving caregiver. After expressing my condolences, I took a chance by telling her she was our honoree. I explained to her that I understood the circumstances were not ideal and left the decision up to her as to whether she wanted to attend. A few hours later, our staff met Deborah and her PHOTO BY MELISSA DONALD family at the event and when I presented her with the award, I could immediately see and feel her happiness. At that moment, I realized how good it felt to know that our staff could bring joy to someone else — especially at such a difficult time in her life. But the best part of the evening for me was hearing her say, “I’m glad I came.” We know the job of being a caregiver is a very difficult one. So many do it for their loved ones just for the love, not because they want or expect recognition. But we want to bring a little surprise and encouragement into a caregiver’s life by providing them with some gifts. If you know of a caregiver who is in need of a break and deserves some recognition for all they do for others, nominate him or her for our quarterly Care Package for the Caregiver Award (page 18) by April 17. The Caregiver of the Year for 2012 will be selected from our quarterly winners.

Today’s Transitions Editor Tiffany White presents Deborah May with the Caregiver of the Year award.

t was at that stage of life. Time to make living environments simpler and more suited to lifestyles. Many of my friends had already chosen to move to apartments or condominiums.

Was that move in my future? I looked. I considered. I decided: No. I already owned a home in one of Louisville’s established neighborhoods with friendly neighbors. We know each other’s names. We watch out for each other, but don’t intrude. My street is close to downtown, just off the very vibrant Frankfort Avenue, and

Where the right-hand bookcase is, was the entrance to the looonnnngggg hallway that led straight to the back of the house. This front room now gets added light from the window by the fireplace and two that are located in what is left of the hallway. I love having my books in the same room with me. The funky rug, which looks like confetti, makes my feet happy. I could have made these two rooms one big room, but I like corners to make me feel cozy. This way I get two rooms that feel like one.

Before the remodel, this was a tiny, darkish room that I used as an office. I added the sleek gas fireplace with river stones instead of fake logs. It turns on with a flip of a switch (hidden behind the left door) and warms the space quickly. I designed storage on either side of the fireplace that hides a multitude of sins. I wanted the doors to add architectural interest but not look like doors which is why there are no handles. There is a narrow coat closet behind the doors on the right in addition to shelves and drawers. Behind the left doors sits a shelf that holds my printer and shredder. No wires. The chair on the right was my paternal grandfather’s. I love how sculptural it looks against the white background. And you know I take many a nap on that chaise.

best of all within walking distance of coffee houses, restaurants, shops, and a bookstore. Here’s what I did: I made my house, which I had lived in for seven years, exactly how I wanted it. Because I had spent many hours poring over House Beautiful, Elle Décor, and Traditional Home, not to mention practically every interior design book in the main library’s collection, I had a pretty good idea what I wanted. I also got suggestions from friends, designers, and the contractors that worked on the house. I wanted shiny, light, and sleek. Out came a wall, opening up the first two rooms in my shotgun house. I banished the wall-to-wallcarpet. Gone is the nasty, shallow bathtub that I never continued on page 10 At my kitchen table. You can see behind me the long window I had put in. There used to be a door there which no one ever used. It’s only purpose seemed to keep out the light. Now, this area is bright and sunny. The perfect spot for tea for two.

Ah, the spa. Standing in the bathroom makes me feel as if I am in an aquarium. I couldn’t wait to get rid of the goofy tub with its annoying shower curtain. My new shower has tiles that run all the way to the ceiling and are shiny and wavy. The glass-block windows I added for natural light have a wavy look as well. I chose glass shower doors without the usual towel bars that would cut the wall of glass in half. I had the toilet, which has a higher seat than normal, installed. The blue diamonds in the floor are tiles from the blue border in the shower. The towel warmer on the left stays on all the time and provides me with much happiness. w w w . t o d a y s t r a n s i t i o n s . c o m

More light. In came rich, dark wood flooring in every room, including the kitchen. The bath now has a walk-in, tiled shower with glass doors. The floor is tile. Because there was no natural light in the bathroom, I had two glassblock windows installed. The flames in the contemporary fireplace lick gray river stones instead of ugly, fake gas logs. Very Zen. After painting so many blobs of color samples on my walls that the inside of my house looked like a giraffe, I decided to go with semi-gloss Sherwin-Williams Alabaster throughout with high-gloss trim of the same white. The kitchen cabinets are painted black – top and bottom. Because I wanted to change from a look of mixed mess to contemporary, I got rid of many, many things including furniture.

Sharon Pittenger, kindergarten teacher at Goshen Elementary, says she enjoys work and has no plans to retire. “I have been working as an elementary school teacher for 49 years,” Sharon said. “Right now I am teaching kindergartners, so I have to constantly bend up and down. They keep me going. If I retired, what would I do? I have always known that I wanted to be a teacher,” she said. “It is a big part of my life because I love working with the children.” Sharon Pittenger said the reason she keeps teaching is because she enjoys watching the children learn. “It encourages me to see that they’re learning,” Sharon said. “I feel it is so important to love to learn.

“During the summer vacation, I volunteer and also tutor other kids. I can’t stay away from teaching,” she said. Retirement eliminates job-causing stress, and gives people time to devote to hobbies, the luxury of staying up late and sleeping in, and the opportunity to explore new interests, and travel. But, Sharon does all those things without having to stop doing the work she loves. During her summer break, Sharon said, “I find time to travel. I have an English garden, and we grow lots of flowers so this is where we spend a lot of our time in the summer.” Sharon encourages people her age, retired on not, to become engaged in their lives. “My advice to them is to find something to make them happy.” t o d a y ’ s

Places you can go to buy quality food for less By Carmen Brown

hile it is widely known that being active is important, proper nutrition is a must to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It is easier than you may think to get fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet all year. Here are four ways to eat healthfully in the Louisville community.

Eat Healthy &Cheap

Fresh Stops Karyn Moskowitz, director of New Roots, has taken a grassroots approach to providing the community with fresh fruits and vegetables. “We knew that any solution to the problem of food injustice — not having equal access to fresh food— had to be solved by the community.” Fresh Stop became an answer. The barriers to having fresh food such as access, cost, and knowledge on how to prepare it, have been overcome with the Fresh Stop program. Each week community members have the opportunity to buy a box of local, fresh produce that they pick up at one of three Fresh Stops. Food boxes, or shares, are offered in one size and cost $12. Moskowitz works with neighborhoods to establish Fresh Stops and offers year-round classes that teach how to return to our food history — eating together and cooking fresh food. “Our elders’ knowledge of continued on page 16

cooking, farms, gardens, is invaluable,” she said. “They provide most of our recipes,” says Moskowitz. Fresh Stops are open to the community; there are currently three Fresh Stops around Louisville with another one just starting. Customers can purchase shares from June to October at any location. Call 502.475.8979 or go to www.newrootsproduce.org for more information. Douglass Boulevard Christian Church Farmer’s Market Members of the Douglass Boulevard Christian Church (DBCC) have wanted to sponsor a farmer’s market for several years. Their hard work paved the way to their first farmer’s market opening in April 2011. For Christina Schlesinger, a board member for the market, it was very important to provide people with good quality food. “We selected vendors throughout Kentucky. You can talk with the farmers about how they treat their animals and the process they use for harvesting,” she said. DBCC’s Spring Farmer’s Market will open April 14. When asked what her wish was for the market in the future, she said, “I hope the market stays for the community, not profit. This is a market for faith and love.” For more information on the DBCC Farmer’s Market, call 502.452.2629. Grasshoppers Distribution “We like to say we provide local food for local people,” says April Perkins of Grasshoppers Distribution. Since 2005, the organization has grown from four farmers to over 60 farmers and 15 local food artisans such as Blue Dog Bakery. Grasshoppers provides support to the farmers by helping them with information to produce chemical-free food and treat their animals well. In turn, these farmers provide fresh fruit, vegetables, meats, and cheeses to the customers of Grasshoppers year round. Grasshoppers has an online website where customers can shop and gives them an option to set up recurring orders. Grasshoppers is always adding new items and, if you do not have internet access, you can set up your account and order grocery items over the phone. “Our customers pay per delivery so it’s easier to budget and easier to eat local foods as much as possible,” says Perkins. Grasshoppers provides Wednesday through Friday deliveries at 18 locations throughout Louisville. Call 502.708.1881 or go to grasshoppersdistribution.com for more information. 16

Veggie Quinoa salad from Home Cuisine.

Home Cuisine After a long day with a busy night ahead, it may be tempting to have fast food for dinner. However, for a great healthy option, try Home Cuisine. The company started over 10 years ago when a family member was diagnosed with diabetes. “My mom made her sister food and dropped it off,” says Mae Pike, co-owner and vice president of Home Cuisine. “At first, we were geared towards people with diabetes and heart disease. Soon, we realized everyone wanted healthy eating options.” Home Cuisine operates using over 25 years of experience from co-owner Sandy Pike and guidance from food scientists from the University of Louisville and the University of Kentucky. The meals are prepared based on calorie content, with fresh fruits and vegetables, organic, and whole wheat products. There are no menus to choose from and the staff makes sure to keep variety in the meals. There are several options to choose from when becoming a Home Cuisine customer. You can pick up your meals or have them delivered. You can also leave a cooler outside and the Home Cuisine staff will put your order on ice for you. Food options are three meals a day or dinners only, and there are no minimum commitments. “We offer convenience and peace of mind,” says Pike. For more information on Home Cuisine, call 502.896.0666 or go to www.homecuisineonline.com. t o d a y ’ s

Meet our “Care Package for the Caregiver” Contest Winner! Congratulations to Donna Hood for being the winner

of our Care Package for the Caregiver Award. She has won 2 tickets to Derby Dinner Playhouse, a $20 gift certificate to Taste of Kentucky and other great prizes. Why She Won: Donna has been the primary caregiver for her 85-year-old mother for the past seven years and gives care, when needed, to her brother who has colon cancer. As with most caregivers, Donna’s load of responsibilities is heavy, but she says she is able to set aside personal time for herself. The challenge, says Donna, is learning how to completely disconnect from her caregiver role when it is time.

etting older has a way of messing with us. Our sight starts to decline as we pass 40. Eventually, our hearing, and our sense of taste and smell can also begin to weaken. Science and technology are constantly trying to develop newer and better devices to help us adapt to these changes, and while we’re still far from becoming bionic seniors, we’re leaps and bounds ahead of generations past.

Out of Sight Gone are the days of Coke-bottle glasses and clumsy bifocals. Today’s glasses are made with lenses of thin, lightweight polycarbonate or high-index plastics and come in a wide range of styles and options. No-line bifocals or multifocal progressive lenses without any visible lines let us see clearly at different distances. Anti-reflective coatings cut down on glare from computers and when driving at night, and make the lenses almost invisible on the face. There are also scratch-resistant and anti-fog coatings, as well as lenses that darken in bright sunlight and revert to clear indoors. Brand new to the market are emPower! glasses, the first electronic-focusing eyewear with liquid crystal technology. You simply tap or swipe the frame to instantly turn off or on the near-focus zone. With traditional progressive lenses or no-line bifocals, there’s a fuzziness or distortion at the bottom of the lens when walking down the stairs or looking at the ground, explains Brittany Davis from the office of Dr. Elliott Rosengarten in Louisville. These glasses let you simply turn off the reading area when you don’t need it. Those of us who don’t want to deal with glasses can consider contact lenses, which have evolved a great deal over the years. Thin, breathable, and comfortable to wear, they now come in bifocal and multifocal varieties as well, says Davis. Most are disposable, and you put in a fresh pair on a daily to monthly schedule depending on the prescription and type of lens. Some are extended-wear type, which you can sleep in and wear for longer periods. Turn up the Volume Hearing aids today are a far cry from those old “beige bananas” hanging off people’s ears, says Dr. Abigail Ashley, an audiologist with Louisville’s t o d a y ’ s

Heuser Hearing Institute. There’s Lyric, for example, an extended wear hearing device that is placed deep into the ear canal for a period of several months, after which it’s replaced with a new one. Because it sits so close to the ear drum, Lyric takes advantage of natural hearing cues to provide better quality of sound and is completely invisible. Daily-wear hearing aids, which you insert in the morning and remove at night, come in two styles: in-the-ear and behind-the-ear. While smaller and more comfortable to use with a telephone, the in-theear devices tend to go in for repairs more often and not last as long since they are vulnerable to wax and moisture, says Ashley. The most popular version of behind-the-ear devices use receiver-in-the-ear technology and are cosmetically discreet. With the device housing tucked away behind the ear and the receiver snug inside the ear canal, only the clear plastic tube connecting the two parts is visible. Mid-level and premium hearing aids are equipped with directional microphones that monitor background noise and make automatic adjustments so you can better hear what’s in front of you, a feature that can also be overridden manually. Additionally, modern hearing aids can accommodate Bluetooth technology via a Streamer that sends hands-free audio from your phone, music device, and TV directly into your hearing aid. While the technology is exciting, a hearing aid is still only as good as the person who dispenses and adjusts it, cautions Ashley, so it’s important to do your research before you buy.

Taste and Smell It We experience a definite decrease in the number of smell-related neurons as we age and may start to notice that we just don’t smell as well as we did in our youth, according to Dr. Steven Shotts of Advanced ENT and Allergy in Louisville. While currently there aren’t any devices to help with age-related decline in the ability to smell, Shotts recommends that we consult a trained, board-certified ear, nose, and throat doctor to rule out the presence of treatable conditions such as polyps, sinus infections, or allergies that may be contributing to smell loss. Our ability to taste things with our tongue is actually very rudimentary, says Shotts, and most of our sense of taste is linked to our sense of smell. So when our sense of smell is compromised we can’t enjoy our food as much. Various underlying medical conditions, as well as certain medications, can also cause changes in smell and taste, and any unusual symptoms should be discussed with a doctor. t o d a y ’ s

So, P What Now?

By Michelle Sherrard

Caring for Someone Who Needs Adult Day Services

roviding care for an aging loved one is truly an act of love that can be richly rewarding, but it can also be overwhelming without knowledge, planning, and support. Kentucky and Indiana have a vast amount of resources available to individuals who are, or will be, caregivers: in-home care or respite providers, Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA), AARP Kentucky, the Alzheimer’s Association, and elder law attorneys, to name a few. For many caregivers, adult day care is one resource that proves to be a great option for them and their loved one. Regina Moore, a 50-year-old community public health worker, recalled the time she decided to become a caregiver to her mother Michelle. In March 2011: “I knew my mother needed assistance with care continued on page 26

when she had no memory of her phone number, address, or her age. She was also starting to repeat things.” Moore’s mother was a planner, so all legal documents such as a will and power of attorney were drafted. The initial challenge for Regina, then, was figuring out how to move her mother into her house and more fully into her life. Taking the First Step When Regina first brought Michelle to Louisville, she used home care service providers for a few months. She later turned to Active Day adult day care center not only because the in-home care began to be too expensive, but also because Michelle needed to be around peers. Regina emphasized that her mother needed stimulation “to get to a better place mentally.” Active Day provides many fun and engaging activities and a chance for her to spend time with friends. “She absolutely loves it there,” Regina declared. According to Regina, adult day care provides peace of mind for the caregiver. “My mom gets physical therapy, socialization, and balanced meals, so I don’t have to worry about her while she’s there. I also like the fact that there are nurses there in case she needs monitoring.” While Michelle is at Active Day, Regina works full time. “On the days that she’s at daycare, I’m able to concentrate on work. When she’s not at daycare, I think about her a lot: ‘Did she eat?’ ‘What did she eat?’ Then I call her.” Handling the Challenge Regina praises the adult day care as a “Godsend”; however, she still feels the stress of caregiving: “My head is full every day, every waking hour with trying to organize and coordinate how things are going to work for that day and for the next day.” It all starts when you wake up and have to get [your loved one] ready for the day, which is no easy task. Regina assists Michelle with waking up, going to the restroom, cleaning up any incontinence, and getting dressed. She also helps her take medicines and vitamins, and assists her with respiratory therapies and sinus cleanses for asthma and allergies. “I think about ways we can cut down on the time it takes to get ready in the morning, but nothing has worked so far,” she noted. This busy mindset continues throughout the day. “Sometimes I just feel so overwhelmed and I think to myself, ‘Can I really do this?’” Regina isn’t alone. Many caregivers not only feel overwhelmed, but will eventually succumb to “caregiver burnout.” The Rev. Rebecca Church, M.Div. (Master of Divinity), caregiver, and leader of the dementia-caregiver support group at Wesley Manor Retirement Community, has seen this condition many times during the 16 years 26

that she’s been involved. “I have the image of a person hanging over the side of a cliff with a rope, you know? The rope is frayed and it’s getting weaker and weaker. Unless the caregiver reaches out, the rope is going to break. The caregiver might find themselves in the hospital; they might need antidepressants; they might find themselves drinking or overeating if that’s been a vice for them.” Being Good to Yourself When you experience caregiver burnout, Rebecca (in borrowing a phrase from old Western movies) suggests that the best thing you can do is “circle the wagons.” She emphatically stressed that the caregiver needs to “surround yourself with people who are going to uplift you… and listen to you without judgment.” Regina seems to follow that advice. She had a lot of help along the way and credits her family members with making this possible, especially her daughter and son-in-law who assist with care, and her husband who does chores, provides transportation, and most importantly, gives her emotional support. Rebecca also suggested that caregivers need to take time for themselves and engage in activities that they enjoy. Respite care or adult day care can provide caregivers with much-needed time away. “If you don’t do that,” she warns, “you’ll be running on empty. You need to nurture yourself.” When asked what she did with the “free time” she had, Regina quickly responded, “I sleep! I generally don’t have any time away from my mother except when I’m at work. She can be alone for a few hours, though, so my husband and I will go on a date every now and then. I also like doing some shopping during my lunch break or after work — I think I’m getting addicted to thrift stores!” she joked. Is the stress and exhaustion worth it? Regina certainly seems to think so. She explains, “I get to have more ‘good times’ with my mother that I didn’t get a chance to do while growing up. Back then, she had to be the authority figure, but now we can laugh and joke a lot. I get to make her happy and comfortable, and able to maintain some of her dignity [by giving her some autonomy]. You know, this is going to sound crazy, but I have looked forward to taking care of my mom ever since I was a child. Now, it’s like it’s come full circle.”

Happy Days ­­— A New Musical Derby Dinner Playhouse

The story centers around the famed drive-in malt shop, Arnold’s, which is in danger of demolition. Music and Lyrics are by Oscar-winning composer and singer Paul Williams, who penned such 1970s hits as (Just An) Old Fashioned Love Song, Evergreen (co-written with and sung by Barbra Streisand), and We’ve Only Just Begun, one of The Carpenters’ classic hits.

Hats

Hooray for By Connie Meyer

M

ost women love hats. I am not one of them. I look terrible in a hat. Because of my small stature, wearing a hat makes me feel like a mushroom. Whether or not my perception is real or imagined, the damage is done. You cannot project confidence you do not feel. Thus, my hat-equals-mushroom dilemma. Certain people know how to wear hats. They carry themselves with such assurance that the hat is not just an accessory, but an extension, a statement. Particular hats remind us instantly of a distinctive persona. Mention a red hat and silver bells and a certain jovial old man comes immediately to mind. Thinking about Dr. Seuss reminds us of a certain feline in a crazy colored hat instead of any medical occupation. The French were famous for their berets. Artists often wore them as well as a branch of military service known for bravery and their “Green

Berets.” A group of women who enjoyed friendship and hats developed both into a national group called The Red Hat Society. Fred Astaire took the term “dapper” to new heights when he donned his top hat and tails to glide across the silver screen. Who could forget Michael Jackson’s famous fedora accompanied by that glittering glove? Jackie Kennedy set a new fashion trend with her pillbox hats in the sixties. Hats have often topped off many special occasions. If you grew up in Louisville, you know hats are synonymous with Derby. Women strive for originality and style when choosing a hat that will distinguish them from others in the Derby crowd. Hats/caps were originally made for the practical purpose of keeping heads warm. How many generations of grandmothers have warned their grandchildren to wear a hat in winter? The message is clear: “You don’t want to lose all that heat from your head and catch cold.” Winter hats for children are often stretchy for ease in pulling over the ears for extra warmth. Ski caps or masks are another winter hat made to protect the wearer from the deep freeze of winter. Unfortunately, ski masks have been used for more sinister activities. Criminals in ski masks often remain unidentified and at large. This sort of spoils the fun found in a masquerade party. Baseball team caps are significant for showing athleticism as well as allegiance. Fans wear their favorite team caps proudly as a way to cap off their loyalty. The younger fans often display an affinity for wearing their team caps backwards or even sideways. I’m sure the caps were originally designed for the practical purpose of keeping the sun out of a player’s eyes. Visors are another form of hat that does the same for tennis players or others attempting to shield their vision from bright sunlight. My father-in-law often voiced his disapproval of the younger generation’s habit of wearing their caps indoors. Dad always thought caps should be removed as a sign of courtesy when inside. He finally relented when we went to restaurants and found ourselves surrounded by countless young boys who definitely did not continued on page 40

enter with “hats in hands.” For many years women wore hats to church. Easter Sunday used to be the traditional time for women to wear hats as voiced through the lyrics of “In your Easter bonnet.” As a child, I remember the fun of choosing an Easter hat to match my Easter dress and white gloves. For the younger generation, Easter no longer entertains the idea of formal wear topped off by a matching hat. Easter is simply a special time of worship where what is worn is no longer as important as the religious significance of the day itself. Personally I see this as an inclusive improvement since I highly doubt God cares what you are wearing, much less whether or not your hat matches your outfit. Bonnets were big in pioneer days when women wore them to keep the blinding sun from their skin and eyes. With all the hard work required of women in those days it is not surprising that the term “bee in your bonnet” came about to describe anger/or frustration. The term, along with the bonnet, may no longer be used today, but the frustration and anger often felt by women is no longer under cover. Through the years different hats or headpieces have been used for practical purposes or pure decoration. The 40

headgear worn by knights in medieval times was protection against the lances used in battle. Helmets have served as protection for construction workers, motorcycle riders, fighter pilots, bicycle riders, athletes, race car drivers. Not using such protective gear used to be seen as “macho” by many instead of mentally challenged by those who know better. Those in such occupations who choose not to wear a hard hat can be deemed hard headed to say the least. Whatever your choice in headwear may be, it does make a statement. It can be worn with pride to tout a team, or with practicality for warmth or protection. On special occasions, hats are an accessory to an outfit and can be worn purely for fun. Young women getting married today or going to a prom just might top off their look with a tiara. Crowns are no longer reserved for royalty or ballerinas. I may never be comfortable wearing a fancy hat at church or Derby, but “hats off” to the women who showcase their headwear so beautifully. I will cheer hatless from the sidelines secure in the knowledge that at least I won’t suffer from “hat hair.” Connie Meyer writes regularly for Today’s Transitions.

Caring for Aging Loved Ones by Linda Hitt Kempf, RN LNHA

Q:

For 25 years, I have been a nurse in a factory working 11-hour days, 5 days a week, 7 a.m. To 6 p.m., including drive time. From 6 p.m. to midnight, weekends and holidays, I care for my invalid mother who is 88. Mother’s friend sits with her until I arrive. After 15 years of this plus 25 years on my job, I’m overwhelmed, exhausted, and angry. All I ever wanted was to be a nurse. Now, I want to stay in bed with covers over my head. I need advice on bringing joy back to my life. Susan

A:

I encourage you to make an appointment to see your doctor or psychiatrist. Many nurses hit the end of the ‘caregiver rope.’ In nursing school during the psychiatric rotation I recall learning that, ‘anger turned inward can cause chemical imbalances to surface as depression.' Caring for aging loved ones zaps our energy and can cause stress to our physical and mental health. Research shows that caregiver stress poses damaging effects to our immune systems and eventually can be the cause of infection, viruses, emotional, and physical turmoil. This effect stems from the immune system chemical named interleukin 6 (IL-6). An increase in IL-6 has been associated previously with an increased risk for a host of serious diseases in the elderly, according to researchers at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio. Researchers who studied caregivers’ stress over 10 years found the chemical IL-6 increased three to four times faster in caregivers than the control group who were similar in every respect other than caring for parents or young children. When higher levels of IL-6 exist, arthritis patients may have greater pain and inflammation. Ronald Glaser, Ph.D., professor of molecular virology, immunology and medical genetics at OSU, noted levels in caregivers were as high as people 20 years older who were not caregivers. After the caregiver's role ended their levels remained as high three years later. Glaser felt that while caregiver stress may be inescapable, lifestyle changes help stressed caregivers who are sedentary, smoke, overeat, or have other unhealthy habits. For more information on how to reduce caregiver stress, go to www.helpguide.org to read 10 tips for Family Caregivers. w w w . t o d a y s t r a n s i t i o n s . c o m

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 may 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, and can provide limited personal care, and companions who prepare light meals, tidy homes, and may offer transportation or errand services.

Thomson Smillie

Age: 69 Job: Writer and Lecturer; former General Director of the Kentucky Opera

Lecturing aboard exclusive cruise ships and directing operas require sartorial splendor, but that’s not a problem for Thomson Smillie. He has style and an eye for a killer bargain.

His personal style

“I believe it might be described as ‘eclectic anachronism.’ I like to tie my own bow-ties, iron and press shirts and slacks. I deplore the current tendency to grunge. The reliance on rancid jeans and moldering sneakers (or worse still, shiny new ones) appalls me. People in most countries dress their toddlers to look like little men, here we dress grown men to look like inflated toddlers: bulging shorts, T-shirts, play shoes, and baseball caps.

Where he shops

“I shop at Target for neat casual stuff. For the rest, I shop at consignment stores of which Louisville has a brilliant collection. I recently splashed $79 for a silk sports jacket that was marked down from $139 in a consignment shop, but had begun life in a posh store for $1,950. For real bargains, the Nearly New consignment store at Mid-City Mall is tops. I cherish a marked-down, brand new Brooks Brothers light tweed suit I got for $8.75 and a cashmere light tweed for $10. I often buy new shoes on sale at Macy’s although 1st Step Shoes on Baxter Avenue has great stuff on sale.

Keeping fit and healthy

“I’d like to say that I walk briskly for 30 minutes every day in life, but it would be a lie. I aspire to do that and maybe do it three days out of five. I deplore television and read voraciously, mainly history and biography. I get my spirituality, which I deeply cherish, from music: opera and orchestral music. I have no interest in popular music for the same reason I never eat fast food. Call it elitism if you like, but life’s too short for trash.

Philosophy on style

“One of my best-dressed pals says that if you have confidence in your own taste, you do not need to spend a fortune on clothes.

How a stylish man relaxes

“I love walking through the Highlands. My wife Marilyn and I live in a small house on Cherokee Road and in mild weather the grand mansions, the clapboard ‘painted ladies,’ and the mature trees of the Cherokee Triangle are a paradise for architecture buffs.

Philosophy on life

“I like Joseph Campbell’s mantra ‘follow your bliss.’ It’s not as easy as it sounds in this materialistic world, but happiness is love, love is happiness. Cherish your family and friends and if you are able to make a living out of what you love doing, you are rich beyond dreams.” 72
