y mom was heading via ambulance to the hospital. She was diagnosed with a viral infection and released within 24 hours. Fortunately, it wasn’t a serious situation, but the experience made me think about the inevitability of becoming a caregiver. I thought about the level of responsibility and all of the challenging aspects of caregiving. Thinking about it was a little scary, but I believe if we prepare for caregiving ahead of time, the transition might be easier. Here are a few things we can do to lessen the anxiety: • Create a document either on your phone or computer that lists all of the medications your loved one is taking. Know the dosage, frequency, and where the medications are located in their home. Keep the list updated. • Consult with a financial advisor along with your loved one about how to help with their money if your loved one needs help with paying bills. • If you have siblings, have a discussion with them about the type of caregiving role each person will have. Seeking help from siblings or other family members will keep all of the responsibility from falling on one person. • Know your loved one’s birth date and where to find their insurance and social security cards in case you need to take them to the hospital. If your loved one lives in another state, read our feature about long-distance caregiving on page 30. In the meantime, take a deep breath and focus on making happy memories with your loved one.

Toss, Relax, and Repeat. By Carrie Vittitoe Photos by Melissa Donald

Six ways to take the angst out of decluttering.

S

pring is the time of renewal in nature. For many people, spring has also historically been a time to remake or renew the home. I can vividly recall being a child and watching my mother take everything out of our bedrooms, wash the walls, give a good scrub to all glass and ceramic figurines, and get rid of clothing items we had outgrown. Spring cleaning is often synonymous with decluttering — getting rid of broken, worn, or unused items. For some people, cleaning out the home doesn’t happen by choice but rather because life circumstances necessitate it. Health conditions may change and make it necessary to move to a smaller home or senior living community. In these situations, cleaning out can be overwhelming, both physically and emotionally. Organization expert Ashley Gude provides a number of suggestions for individuals who are cleaning out and organizing their homes (or a loved one’s home). PAGE 8 >>

<<PAGE 6

SEE THE POSITIVES OF DECLUTTERING Removing clutter and organizing come with many benefits. Getting rid of old, broken, and dusty items from a home can mean an improvement in air quality and a reduction in allergy symptoms (and in the Ohio River Valley, any reduction in allergy symptoms is a good thing). Ashley says clients who clean out rarely-used basements that have been packed-to-the-gills for many years will sometimes find dead rodents or mold and mildew problems, which have contributed to allergy issues. Getting rid of clutter and duplicate items also comes with huge mental and emotional benefits. “The psychological benefits are as good as any medicine on the market,” Ashley says. “It really reduces stress levels.” She tells her clients that everything takes up space in the house, as well as their energy and time because they have to find the items, use them, clean them, and maintain them. Decluttering helps people utilize their time and energy more efficiently, which can bring a real sense of relief. BE REALISTIC While decluttering can make a person feel great in the end, it is important to have realistic expectations about how long decluttering is going to take. Ashley says clients who have taken 25 years to accumulate a basement full of stuff are going to need more than a week to clean out that space. “It’s going to take time to go through the process,” she says. Trying to declutter too much in too short a time can result in frustration, which could mean that nothing gets accomplished. 8 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Ashley suggests people start with the easiest spaces first, which might be a junk drawer or a small hallway closet. Keepsake items such as photographs or mementos are generally going to be harder to sort and part with, so she recommends these be kept until later (or last). It is important for each individual, however, to recognize what items have special meaning for them. If a person adores clothing or books, he or she may actually have a harder time parting with these things than “traditional” keepsake items. “CURATE” RATHER THAN ELIMINATE “The household tells a story; it’s their history and memory,” Ashley says. She says clients sometimes don’t want to make decisions about their stuff and would rather just pass it down to their children. Unfortunately, the younger generations of adults don’t want oversized furniture or items that Ashley says “have a big footprint.” Adult children and grandchildren frequently gravitate toward smaller, distinctive items instead of dining room tables and armoires. Ashley uses the idea of curating to help her clients think of the items in their homes. Just as a curator would select specific paintings to feature in a gallery, so does a homeowner when they declutter, picking the best, most relevant, and cherished items for their homes. She reminds homeowners that their adult children and grandchildren are creating their own memories and curating their own lives, so they don’t want to have exactly what their parents or grandparents had in their homes. PAGE 10 >>



<<PAGE 8

REWARD YOURSELF ALONG THE WAY Few people like to tackle a big decluttering job, so Ashley suggests that homeowners reward themselves during the process. They should make the environment fun. Playing music or enjoying a favorite beverage during breaks is important to keep decluttering from feeling like a drag. “Enlist the support of a friend,” Ashley says. Having someone who is not related and can stay objective helps people make better decisions as they declutter and makes the time pass more quickly.

The Storage Trap In a rush to organize, people sometimes purchase various shapes and sizes of storage containers to hold their items, thinking that these containers will result in less clutter. Some people have even rented storage units to hold furniture, clothing, and/or sentimental items while they figure out what to do with them. While there may be cases when a storage unit is necessary, Ashley Gude recommends putting a time frame on using one. “Clutter is ‘delayed decisions, and storage units house those delayed decisions,’” Ashley says. And a cute fabric bin of unused and unwanted items is still a bin of stuff that is taking up space, energy, and time.

10 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

THE NITTY GRITTY When it comes to the process of decluttering, Ashley recommends that whatever space is being decluttered be cleared out and dismantled. If a client is organizing the garage, Ashley has them remove everything so the garage is a clean slate. She then recommends that like items be grouped together. In the garage example, there would be separate groupings for car care items, gardening tools, flower pots, sporting goods, chemicals, etc. Once everything has been sorted, Ashley says it is pretty easy to see what needs to be purged or relocated. If kids’ bike gear has gotten in with gardening tools, the bike gear should be moved to the pile of like items. Ashley says once everything is grouped, clients can see how many gardening gloves or weed sprays they have. At this point, clients can decide what to keep based on what items are their favorites or most functional. Once the space is empty, Ashley recommends it be cleaned. After a thorough cleaning is complete, items can be organized in a way that makes sense. For example, items that are used all the time should be at eye level, while items that are only needed once a year should go higher or lower depending on what the item is. Infrequently used chemicals in the garage should be placed up high so children and animals can’t get to them. WHEN TO CALL IN THE EXPERT How does a person know when to call in the services of an expert for decluttering and home organization? Ashley says if a person has tried to declutter before and didn’t complete the process, didn’t like how it turned out, or can’t keep the space from getting messy and decluttered, it is probably beneficial to call in outside help. Deaths and divorce are two other situations where objective, neutral, professional help may be needed. “An organizer is supposed to transfer their skillset to you,” Ashley says. By asking questions, organizers can help clients think about which items they use, love, and should keep. The hope is that once a client has cleared one space with the help of a professional organizer, he or she will be able to do other spaces on their own.

heryl Franck doesn’t agonize over what she’ll be wearing to work, an event, or a gathering with friends. Understanding the value of presentation comes naturally for Cheryl, who is a member of The Fillies, Inc. — a nonprofit foundation for the Kentucky Derby Festival. Cheryl’s involvement with the foundation includes planning its annual Children’s Tea, Fillies Fashion Show, Fillies Derby Ball, and she assists with producing the Macy’s Kentucky Derby Festival Fashion Show. This fashion maven is skillful in creating the perfect outfit for any occasion. “Your outfit is like an instant job interview. People judge you on what you look like before you say anything,” she says.

When planning for an event,

Cheryl says she hangs each item of clothing on a rack to help her visualize what will and will not work for the outfit. “I can see what I have or what I might need to add.” Cheryl buys clothes from multiple local boutiques including Rodeo Drive, Rodes for Her, AFM Threads, and Belle Monde. She searches for versatile clothing and accessories that allow her to transition easily from a daytime to an evening style. She keeps her wardrobe staples simple. “I love a crisp button-down white shirt with a collar and a black sweater or top, because it can transition to any type of outfit you like.”

For women who are on a tight budget, Cheryl suggests

It’s Heck Getting Old!

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

PROBLEM:

Diabetic Retinopathy

Lining the back of the eye, the retina converts light to signals that are processed by the brain as visual images. Like all other organs, the retina needs a healthy blood supply to function properly. Diabetes can cause damage to the blood vessels that feed the retina and to the retina itself, leading to a vision-threatening condition called diabetic retinopathy. According to Dr. Aaron McNulty of Louisville Eye Center, diabetic retinopathy is the leading cause of blindness in the United States. The good news is there are ways to mitigate the damage.

SOLUTION: Blood Sugar Management

SOLUTION: Surgical Treatment

Mild and moderate stages of diabetic retinopathy usually don’t affect your vision, Dr. McNulty says. When caught early, good blood sugar management can minimize or even reverse damage to the retina and may be the only treatment needed. See your eye doctor for regular eye exams that include dilation to screen for diabetic retinopathy before it becomes severe, and work with your primary care doctor or endocrinologist to maintain tight control of your blood sugar.

Once the condition progresses to proliferative diabetic retinopathy, which is the most serious stage, there is significant damage to the retina that manifests as varying levels of vision impairment. Your eye doctor will typically refer you to a retina specialist, or retinologist, to see what can be done. Depending on the individual case, treatment options include traditional or laser surgery, or injecting medications into the eye, Dr. McNulty says. Surgery is not a cure, however, and catching it early and being diligent about managing your diabetes is the best way to keep your sight.

These Apps Are (Memory) Keepers

S

ometimes, it seems as if every day is just a little busier than the last. With so many things to remember, it is easy to lose track. Fortunately, technology can lend a little help with the mental overload. Here are three apps that might make life’s tasks a little easier to remember. When using any app or reminder system, the most important thing is that it works for you. There are a lot of apps out there claiming they will change your life in one way or another. The best thing you can do is give any app or system a week to see how it fits into your life. If it doesn’t, surely another will.

LastPass k There was a time when I used the same password for all of my accounts — email, bank, Facebook, and everything in between. But doing so is very unsafe, since anyone who learned one of your passwords would then have access to your whole life. The alternative, however, was impossible. My brain couldn’t handle remembering a dozen different passwords for a dozen different websites. That’s why I started using LastPass. LastPass is a secure app that stores all of your passwords and pin codes and locks them under secure encryption with a master password. This way, I can feel free to create more complicated, unique passwords, since LastPass does all of the remembering for me. LastPass is available for free in Apple’s App Store and Google Play. Eidetic k When I was a student and I really needed to remember something for a test, I would put little sticky notes for myself everywhere — in the book I was reading, on the bathroom mirror, and even in the middle of the TV screen. These constant reminders would ultimately force me to memorize the fact and ace the test. 16 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Eidetic is kind of like the digital version of that. These days, I’m trying to be more earth conscious and use fewer reminder notes. The Eidetic app uses spaced repetition to improve learning by reminding me of the thing I need to memorize — whether it is a friend’s birthday, a new phone number, or a new colleague’s name. A lot has been written about brain-training apps and how they don’t really work, but Eidetic is different because it’s helping me to remember facts from my own life. I don’t think it will actually help you to develop an eidetic memory, but it has helped me to recall what brand of cereal my husband wants at the grocery store, which is just as valuable. Eidetic is available for free in Apple’s App Store. Siri and Google Assistant k Possibly the most useful application on your phone is already built in. While everyone loves to ask Google and Siri silly questions, far fewer people realize that these robotic voices also function as powerful virtual assistants with truly unique abilities. You probably already know you can tell your virtual assistant to set a timer or an alarm for you, but did you also know you can get Google and Siri to remind you of important information exactly when you need it? You can tell Siri to remind you to send a card one week prior to your sister’s birthday, or ask Google to remind you where you are supposed to be on Tuesday night. Both Siri and Google are also able to give you location-based reminders, so you can say “Siri, remind me to go to the gas station when I leave the house,” or “Google, remind me to get eggs when I am at Whole Foods,” and your virtual assistant will do just that.



A Family Vacation

for Every Generation By Megan M. Seckman Photos submitted

The Dick family schedules a family vacation annually. Pictured from l to r: The family visits Bryce Canyon in Utah; Barbara Dick having cuddle time with her grandchildren; and paddle boarding at Lake Disharoon in Big Canoe, Georgia.

The Dick Family found that sometimes family vacations don’t quite go as planned, but they make great stories for generations to come.

everal years ago Gary Dick was passing out presents at Christmas when he had an epiphany. All the shopping and wrapping and decorating wasn’t bringing his family closer together. “The kids only play with the toys a day or two. Gifts don’t make lasting memories — trips do,” Gary says. That was when the Dick family decided to forgo Christmas presents for an annual family vacation. Each year, Gary plans a trip for his children and grandchildren, 14 people in all, and each year, an indelible memory is made. This past summer the troop headed to Big Canoe,

Georgia, a mountain community 60 minutes north of Atlanta. Brittani Dick, Gary’s daughter-in-law, had a two-week-old infant in the backseat when she received the news that a tree had fallen on the family’s VRBO rental in the previous night’s storm. “It was complete chaos. I’m climbing back and forth from the front to the back seat with the baby, and meanwhile 14 people are heading to Georgia with nowhere to stay!” Brittany says. “We will be telling that story forever. Sometimes I feel like a reality TV camera follows us around.” (Luckily, the family was able to find a last-minute rental during peak season.) PAGE 20 >>

Gary, who still resides in his childhood home in Monticello, Kentucky, speaks with the unmistakable lilt of the region. Family is priority to this man. You can tell by the way he describes his grandchildren’s reaction to these family vacations — he loves hearing his progeny recall the memories of Utah, Big Canoe, and Hilton Head (the three locations the family has ventured to thus far). “My dad,” Gary recalls with his sweet Southern twang, “would take his week’s vacation each year to go squirrel hunting. One year, he wasn’t having much luck and got frustrated, so he told us to pack up — we were going to the Kentucky State Fair.” This was the only trip Gary took with his family as a child, but it left a lasting impression. Now, Gary makes it a point to plan a trip the family will be talking about for years. Planning is fairly easy; the family is drawn to the outdoors, so they typically pick a mountain or beach location with close proximity to a pool. That way, even the families with little ones will

Tips from a Travel Agent Candace Dupps, travel agent at Platinum Travel, recommends working with a travel advisor when planning your next multigenerational travel excursion. Travel agents will first get to know the dynamics and interests of family and help to coordinate the logistics of travel with a large group. “We know the resorts and cruise lines, and we work with trusted suppliers to make sure our clients are taken care of, and that gives peace of mind to the lead traveler,” Candace says.

have something to do in between nap times. Gary reserves one large rental (when possible) so that everyone can be together in the evenings. Each family covers their own expenses, and the four families are each responsible for planning one dinner during the week. After dinner, Gary makes a point to tell his grandchildren about their family tree. The stories’ multigenerational legacy will live on much longer, Gary knows, than the forgotten Christmas toys ever would. “Having to ‘wreck and order’ in Chattanooga when the rental was destroyed…” Gary trails off with a laugh,

through a travel agent ensures 24-hour support during travel when emergencies arise (like when a tree falls on your vacation rental). Candace says many of her clients opt for cruise or resort travel because the activities and variety of accommodations fit the diverse needs of the group. Such vacations might offer childcare and a variety of activities for all interests and ages. These locales also allow for the family to split up during the day and reunite for dinners in the evenings, so that the family can have some space when needed.

“...or the time in Hilton Head when they left me in the hospital to go to the beach. I had been playing with the kids in the ocean all day and I must have gotten water in my ears because I woke up the next day with severe vertigo. I had to get an MRI and a CAT scan and they put me on these heavy drugs. I was so stoned from the drugs that my family said, ‘He’ll be OK; he won’t even know we left.’ They just left me there to go to the beach! I had to call them to say, ‘They’re kicking me out. You gotta come get me.’ These trips make memories that will last through our lives.”

Also, when a large group travels together, a travel agent can secure personal drivers and guides, taking the stress off the older family members and the lead organizer. “Overall, it’s really about balance,” Candace says. “You have to take everyone’s needs and wants into account and find the trip that layers each. Every family is different than the next, but there’s generally a great solution once the right questions are asked.”

HOW WE MET

A Romance in ‘Full Spin’

I

n the late 1960s Judy Skillman met Charley Wachowski at the apartment of a mutual friend. He says that even though she was quiet, Judy made quite an impression. Judy brings out a scrapbook she made from those early days. It holds cards, notes, movie ticket stubs, and various memorabilia from their early courtship. She holds up a coaster from Lum’s where they went on their first date, which is carefully dated April 11, 1970. The scrapbook shows the beginnings of their romance. As for Judy’s first impression of Charley, she tells about going to Coney Island where Charley convinced her to go on a “spinning ride.” Judy warned him that she did not like rides but went against her better judgment. Judy smiles demurely when she says, “I knew he was a keeper when I threw up on him and he held my hair.” This was definitely the beginning of a romance in full spin. Charlie was looking at the military when he lost his deferment. After that first meeting in July 1970, Charley and Judy started dating and Charley decided to go into the Army. He knew he did not have a choice without his deferment and the Vietnam War in full swing. By July Charley was in basic training at Fort Knox. He came from Fort Knox on numerous occasions to see Judy and even found himself AWOL once when returning to base much too late. Since Charley was away often, he and Judy corresponded via the U.S. mail. By April 1971 it had been a year since their first meeting. Charley found out that he

On their second anniversary they took a bus trip to Italy and managed to squeeze in a weekend in between to visit Photo submitted Austria. In 1973 Charley finished his time in the Army, and Judy returned to the states where Charley started working full-time at Ford and they started raising their three children. Betsy was born in 1975, Chip in 1978, and Christopher in 1979. Their first granddaughter Ayla turned 18 last year and they welcomed their second grandchild, Eleanor, born last February.

uring the year leading up to her 2014 retirement, Elaine Salvo worried about what she would do next. She had worked for Assumption High School for 34 years as a teacher, college counselor, and finally president, and knew she’d have a hard time letting go of that part of her life. PAGE 26>>

Friends and colleagues assured Elaine that she would find ways to stay active, and they were right. For the first several years of her retirement, Elaine shared her expertise with various non-profits in the community through the Encore Louisville program. She later joined the Bellarmine University Women’s Council and currently chairs its Strategic Planning Committee. Elaine also continues to maintain her connection to Assumption and is part of a group of retired teachers who help read the school’s scholarship applications every spring. “There’s definitely life after retirement,” she says, “and there are many places in the community where your skills are still needed.”

26 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Quiet Mornings When people would ask me what I’m going to do once I retire, I would say, “Nothing before 10 o’clock.” Mornings are the best. I like getting up at leisure, enjoying my coffee, and reading the paper. I’m usually not ready to eat a lot in the morning, so I keep breakfast pretty light. I might have oatmeal with blueberries, or my go-to breakfast of Laughing Cow cheese with Triscuits. My husband is retired as well, so we have breakfast together and discuss what we want to accomplish that day. We’re up by 7 or 7:30, and by mid-morning we’re ready to go. Standing Lunch Date Typically we are out to lunch almost every day. Depending on what mood we’re in and what we feel like eating, we might enjoy one of the Bardstown Road restaurants, go for eggs at Waffle House, or go for the salad bar at Cattleman’s Roadhouse. Then we run our errands or take care of other business. There are usually several things on the day’s agenda that we need to do, or I might have meetings of my own to attend. Shrimp and Grits One of our favorite places to go for dinner is Le Relais, but I also love to cook. I’m a recipe reader, and I have lots of cookbooks. Even when I was working and was having very busy days, I would get home and relax by preparing dinner while sipping a glass of wine. We don’t eat a lot of red meat, so I cook mostly chicken, fish, and shrimp dishes. I’m originally from the North, and I have been trying to perfect my shrimp and grits recipe. That’s one of our go-to meals. Bedtime Reading After dinner I’ll relax in front of the TV and maybe watch Jeopardy or a Netflix show. But I also enjoy reading. We have a book club that meets every couple of months, and it’s mostly Assumption people who attend. I can’t read in front of the TV, though — it’s too distracting — so usually I’ll go into the bedroom around 10 and read for an hour or two before going to sleep. We’ve read several great books recently in the book club, but our all-time favorite over the last year or two has been The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.

Book Club

Stories by Vanessa Hutchison

Featuring: The Dutch House by Ann Patchett

On the last Tuesday of every month, members of Carmichael’s Community Book Club gather over snacks, welcome new members, and of course discuss the book chosen for that month. “Everyone is very open and accepting,” explains Bri Esposito, former event and marketing coordinator for Carmichael’s Bookstore, and lover of all things literary. The group, which averages 10-15 regular members, is constantly growing and inviting more readers into its ranks. In January, when the group tackled Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale and The Testament, its ranks grew to over 25 participants. For next month, the group has chosen to read The Dutch House by Ann Patchett. Bri shared a little about the novel and the group itself.

What have you learned from this book?

The Dutch House is a realistic portrayal of familial relationships. It’s about a multigenerational family where the sister is significantly older than the brother, and as a result, she almost raises him like a mom. That’s not a very common narrative, but I think it really shows how families relate to one another and what makes each one unique.

Maeve, the main character’s older sister in the book, is very strong and independent. She would definitely be the most interesting to hang out with. Why did the group choose this book?

Some of the members really pushed for this book, especially after seeing Patchett speak at a Carmichael’s event this past October. We vote on our books quarterly, and this one made the cut. I think many readers really connect with Ann Patchett because she has a classic, accessible way of writing, and she is very good at telling this kind of multigenerational story.

What other titles would you recommend to people who enjoyed this book?

I would definitely recommend Bel Canto, also by Ann Patchett. Also, they should check out House of the Spirits by Isabel Allende. It is another multigenerational story, with some magical realism in there as well.

What is the best book the group has read?

One book we read, which I recommend to everyone, is The Gloaming by Melanie Finn. It’s a small press book and very well done. It’s about a woman whose husband leaves her. She’s in Switzerland alone and something tragic happens, and so she kind of runs away to Africa to get over it. It’s a really good character study. I’d also say Circe by Madeline Miller. It’s a retelling of a Greek myth from the feminine perspective and it really puts a unique feminist twist on Greek Mythology. It’s a retelling of the story from Circe’s perspective. She’s usually portrayed as a vengeful woman, best known for turning Odysseus’ men into pigs, but this book tells her side of the story.

LongDistance

Caregiving

By Marie Bradby

U

ntil the late 1990s, my trips home to visit my parents and my sisters and brothers and their families in Northern Virginia were like little vacations. We went to see the Alvin Ailey Dancers at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. We attended family weddings and anniversaries, and we went to the beach on the Outer Banks. But as my father’s health began to decline, and then my mother’s, my trips home focused on helping them, and I became a long-distance caregiver, trekking back and forth between Louisville and the Washington, D.C. area for several years. It’s the hardest, yet most rewarding, job that I have ever done. It never got easier. I was grateful for the opportunity to care for my parents in their own home and share such personal time with them. I’m grateful for my siblings, who provided the bulk of our parents’ care.

“START [PLANNING] EARLY. IT WILL MAKE LIFE EASIER AND TAKE AWAY SOME OF THE STRESS.” — JANICE BALDON GUTTER



3 Tips to Lessen the Stress of Caregiving from Afar << PAGE 30

To start, my family gathered information about available services from our local office on aging. They closely monitored our parents’ health to determine what medical help they needed. Our father passed. At the first sign that our mother needed help, we hired an older woman through a senior employment services agency — a lovely lady — to be a companion, do light housekeeping, and laundry. That was a huge relief for me since I lived so far away. Our mother protested at first, but she became fast friends with Mrs. Holloway. Millions of people are longdistance caregivers, living an average of 450 miles away from loved ones, according to caregiver.org. But there’s a lot you can do to help, even if you don’t reside in the same city as your loved ones. There were six of us siblings, three sons and three daughters. When our mother could no longer live alone, we set up caregiving schedules, which allowed me to purchase airline tickets in advance, and each of us took turns staying with our mother, washing sheets and tidying up for the next person’s stay. I usually stayed for two weeks at a time in order to give others a much-needed break. We used email to communicate, and when one of us couldn’t be at an in-person meeting, we put them on speaker phone. We eventually also shared the costs of paying health aide workers who helped us provide 24-hour care for our mother.

32 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Janice Baldon Gutter, a Louisville human resources specialist, wrote a book about her caregiving experience with her parents called, Caregiving: A Daughter’s Story. She has several suggestions on how to plan, coordinate, and manage long-distance caregiving and lessen the stress. First, develop a family plan ahead of time. “Start early,” Janice says. “It will make life easier and take away some of the stress.” For example, compile the paperwork you need, such as wills, updated copies of insurance papers, and medical cards, and keep them together in an envelope so you know where they are. You’ll need to have access to medical records. Make sure that the power of attorney and health privacy papers are signed, giving you permission to access information through technology. Next, you’ll need time off from work to be with your loved ones. Contact your employee assistance counselor to learn about your workplace rights, especially the Family Medical Leave Act. “It’s a federal law that allows up to 1,250 hours per year of unpaid, job-protected leave if you have worked for your employer for at least one year,” Janice says. “It’s for your personal serious illness and for the serious illness of a loved one (parents, spouse, inlaws, siblings, and children). Most people are familiar with it because it is used extensively.” You’ll need lots of support for when you aren’t there. So, talk to your human resources department about its employee assistance plan, which provides local and national help with finding assistance for relatives. “It’s a very under-used benefit of employment that a lot of people don’t know about,” she says.

3 Other Caregiving Advice Contact churches, fraternities, sororities, and other civic groups in the city of your loved one to see what services they provide. Some of these organizations will check up on a loved one. “You need to think outside the box,” Janice says. Contact the city government where your loved one resides, such as the Department on Aging in Louisville, to see what services it provides. These agencies often offer transportation to take people to and from the doctor, help finding senior housing, and lists of businesses that provide healthcare workers. Check out the national website, Eldercare Locator, eldercare.acl. gov/Public/Index.aspx, which can connect older residents and their families with services. Someone needs to go to the nursing home as often as possible to make sure your loved one is getting proper care. Nursing homes are necessary, but there is no substitute for an in-person visit.

Keep your phone on sound or

vibrate for those emergency calls!

Share contact information with trusted neighbors and friends. They can be sought to check up on a loved one.

Make sure you or the home care

agency does background checks on people that you hire to care for your loved one.

Know the health condition of your loved one yourself, Janice says. “Don’t be dictated to by the healthcare professionals. Be a participant in their care and decisions.” Teach your loved one how to

use technology such as Skype and FaceTime so you can call and see the person in real time.

15 MINUTES WITH

Pat Ritter

Pat Ritter is a watercolorist who sometimes works with oils, acrylics, and pastels. She designs jewelry using copper, silver, and semi-precious gemstones. She attended the (now closed) Louisville School of Art and earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Louisville.

Pat Ritter experiments in various forms of art expression, including painting and jewelry making.

When did you know you were an artist?

I pretty much always knew. I did drawings as a child and did crafty projects for my home. At the art school, I did a lot of different things and worked in lots of different mediums. I was attracted to painting and life drawing so that is what I do now. What attracted you to watercolor?

It just felt right when I picked up the first brush. I liked the way the paint looked on paper, and I felt I could use my imagination more. Plus, there’s no messy cleanup like with oils. Where and how do you work?

I have a home studio. I don’t necessarily practice my art on a daily basis, but I do it whenever I can between taking care of a house and family. How have you expanded your work?

In the beginning, I was unsure of myself so I just tried to learn more. I joined the Kentucky Watercolor Society and other artist 34 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

organizations. Eventually, I started to participate in art fairs like St. James where I had a booth for a number of years and had success there. What organizations do you belong to?

Kentucky Watercolor Society, the Louisville Artisans Guild, and Indiana Plein Air Painters Association (IPAPA). I also meet with an informal group of artists — we call ourselves the Brunch Bunch. We get together occasionally at different restaurants in town and talk and enjoy being artists. I also paint with the Plein Air Painters of Kentucky founded by Jane Morgan. We paint outside like the Impressionists did. Painting outside is inspiring, although you do have to deal with weather and bugs. For plein air, I paint with oils. Any themes you are drawn to?

I love painting people and drawing people as well as landscapes and florals. I am fascinated with faces and drew them when I was a child. What’s on your palette?

I’m drawn to the cool colors,

especially blue. My watercolor brands of choice are Winsor & Newton and Daniel Smith. What fears or challenges have you faced?

When I started in the art school, all the students were younger than me, but I felt accepted, and although I found it challenging, I know it was the best thing I ever did for myself. Also, teaching and doing workshops were a bit difficult at first. I taught at Preston Arts Center for quite a few years, and I continue to offer small workshops in my home.

How would you define an artistic life?

It’s not just about painting or drawing. It really is an outlook on life — everything you do is part of it. Advice to aspiring watercolorists?

Take as many lessons as you can and learn how to use the tools. Experiment with how the water and the pigment mix on the paper. It’s difficult to learn from books, although they can be helpful, but I feel you really need to see someone else model techniques for you. Then you take what you’ve learned and practice, practice, practice.

WHAT I KNOW NOW

Julie Pogue Julie Pogue is managing broker and owner of Julie Pogue Properties. She recently joined Leadership Louisville Center’s Encore Louisville, a program for experienced executives who offer guidance to the community’s nonprofit organizations. Originally from Houston, she moved to Louisville in 1994 and lives in Anchorage. A defining moment in your life?

When I was 17, I went on a spring break trip to Puerto Vallarta. I was in a restaurant, looked across the room and saw this very handsome man. I told the friend I was with that I was going to marry him. His name was Eddie Pogue and he was there with the water polo team from the Air Force Academy. In February of this year, we celebrated our 33year anniversary. Professionally, it was the day I got my real estate license. It was Derby Day, and I sold my first house for full price. I tell people I hit the trifecta. I listed, signed, and sold the house all in that one day. How did you know you would like real estate?

I just love people, I love selling, and I love houses. How do you motivate others?

There are 30 people in the firm — agents and administrators. I stay positive and work hard so they will follow my lead. It’s all about doing the right thing and having fun, but we work really, really hard. How did you combine being a mother and pursuing a career?

We have two children — Andrew, 25, and Elizabeth, 28. They’re smart and lots of fun to be with. My husband always said that I would leave them alone with a big dog if I needed to go out to sell a house. But, 36 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

my office was across from the Anchorage school they attended, and our home was close by. They became very independent. What did you learn from your parents?

Have the job you really love, and it’s never work. I love selling real estate. Can’t live without?

My family, my executive assistant Joy Craig, a good cup of coffee from Good Folks Coffee, and Murphy, my Havanese. What skill do you rely on?

Flexibility. I’ve got to pivot all the time. What were your plans for yourself?

I went to the University of Texas and thought I would be an architect. It’s a five-year major, and my mother told me I couldn’t marry Eddie Pogue until I had a college degree, so I switched to teaching, and by working summers I graduated in three years. What drives you now?

My ‘Why’ Statement: ‘To bring people together so families and friends feel taken care of and protected and loved.’ What sort of homes are Baby Boomers looking for?

We see a lot of people leaving larger homes for smaller homes, but those homes are exceptionally nice. How do you keep up your energy?

Coffee. And I go to Barre3

Julie Pogue

classes in Springhurst five times a week. It’s like ballet with weights and aerobics. Also, being around my husband and friends gives me energy. What is your work philosophy?

The harder I work, the luckier I get.

Can’t get the knack of?

Well, if I don’t do something well I let somebody else do it. I’m not a cook so we eat out seven nights a week. What have you accepted about yourself?

I definitely have a few more pounds, a few more wrinkles,

and a few more silver hairs as I’ve grown older, but I also have a bit more patience. Tell me something that’s not on your resume?

I definitely have a sweet tooth. The world would be a better place if...

Everyone had someone who really loved them. Before moving to Louisville, I taught first grade in Houston for seven years and I told my students, ‘I’m here with you for this year, and I will love you the whole time we are together.’

Upgrade Your Senses By Megan S. Willman Photos by Patti Hartog

Learn how to use technology to improve your quality of life. And no, you are not too old.

D

o you remember the first time you walked into a science or children’s museum and were free to press all the buttons and pull all the levers on the interactive displays? I do; I was enthralled. When I walked into The Thrive Center, I had the same feeling. It’s not a museum. . .it’s not a lab. . .no one there will try to sell you anything. It’s a fully immersive experience dedicated to technology in wellness. Although a great deal of advertisements market technology to the young, the Thrive

Center has a niche audience of its own, primarily individuals aged 50 and older. Guests are introduced to a wealth of innovative technology designed to enhance their lives, and the best part is that those guests are encouraged to try out all of those devices firsthand. Every item and program offered inside Thrive’s walls is focused on improving our lives as we age. I came through the doors with a specific question: “Are there ways we can upgrade our hearing, sight, touch, taste, and smell, each of which tends to weaken as we age?” Sheri Rose, CEO and executive director at The Thrive Center, not only answered my question but let me experience those innovations for myself.

Tasting

Above is Sheri Rose, CEO and Executive Director of The Thrive Center. The center’s goal is to bring technology to those who need it in order to increase their quality of life.

Eversound

Hearing Audio cardio: Individuals put on a headset and listen to their favorite music played through the Audio Cardio app. As they listen, a vibration is used to exercise the muscles of the ears and improve hearing. Eversound: These high-definition, amplifying headphones increase clarity of sound and help hearing-impaired individuals to focus on and understand what they are hearing. SyncFit: Hearing is key to the success of the SyncFit program. By linking music and memory through listening to a customized music list, individuals have seen an average of 42 percent mood elevation and reduction in anxiety. “This technology is particularly helpful to those experiencing dementia,” Sheri says. 40 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

While there isn’t a lot to be done to recover a lost sense of taste, there is one piece of technology that can help a person know when food has expired. Samsung makes a smart refrigerator that has a myriad of functions, one of which is to record the date when items are placed in the fridge and the date by which that item should be tossed. This feature assists those who, for example, may not be able to smell or taste when their milk has gone bad. The fridge sends an alert when the time is up for each item. This innovative appliance can benefit those who are sightimpaired as well. It can search for recipes, make a shopping list, and read the recipe to the individual cooking the meal. Another option is the ability to leave a voice memo. While I was there, Sheri recorded the following: “Mom, remember you have a doctor’s appointment at 4 today,” and the refrigerator played it back. Every feature can be controlled with the touchpad on the front of the device. PAGE 42>>



<< PAGE 40

Maintain your vision these natural ways In addition to my conversation with Sheri, I was able to connect with Dr. Douglas Sigford, an opthamologist at Kentucky Lions Eye Center. He explained to me that, in the absence of disease, most people have good vision. “When it comes to eyes,” Dr. Sigford says, “prevention is key. It may seem simplistic but a few basic healthy choices will stave off vision problems.” Lead a healthy lifestyle. Eat right and exercise. Choose leafy, green vegetables to boost your Vitamin A. Systemic diseases like heart disease and diabetes can damage your eyes. Controlling blood pressure and stopping smoking will also make a difference. Protect your eyes. Wear sunglasses outside and safety goggles when the situation warrants them. “Don’t think to yourself ‘this will just take a moment; nothing bad will happen’. Things happen in a split second,” Dr. Sigford says.

IrisVision

Seeing IrisVision: These lenses can improve or delay the effects of macular degeneration by offering a variety of modes to meet the specific needs of each user. Aira: These glasses allow blind or sight-impaired individuals to connect to a live person who will “see” the surrounding environment for them. Looking through the camera on the glasses’ nosepiece, the call center agent can assist the wearer by performing tasks such as reading a menu or prescription pill bottle, advising when to stir a pot in the kitchen to keep it from boiling over, or offering detailed walking directions. Alexa Echo/Google Dot: Voice-assistance devices such as those provided by Amazon and Google can make all the difference for those who are visually-impaired. “We know some people worry about ‘big brother’ listening in to our homes,” Sheri says. “Imagine instead the huge difference they can make to someone who has lost their sight. Not only can these individuals ask for a weather or news report, or for music to play, they can be reminded about an appointment, to take their medication, or even find out what time it is.”

42 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Hydrate. Dry eyes are very common as we age and can cause vision problems. “Treat dry eyes aggressively with artificial tears or whatever your health professional recommends,” Dr. Sigford suggests. Keep the lights on. Dr. Sigford says, “It gets harder to adjust from dark to light and back to light again. Make sure you have enough light to see well.” Go big. There is an entire industry offering magnifiers and artificial lights from which to choose. Dr. Sigford suggests it may take some trial and error before you find the product that’s right for you.

Our Senses Connect to Our Mobility

Touch/Sensitivity Induction cooktop: This appliance stays cool to the touch even with all burners turned on high. Only the burner with a pan on it will heat, and even then, it heats only the bottom of the pan. The stove top itself can be turned on with a magnet, another benefit to those whose sense of touch is compromised. Cookware designed specifically for induction stoves must be used, but those can be found at stores such as Kohl’s and Bed, Bath & Beyond. Worried that you might forget to turn off the burners when finished? No need. This smart appliance turns itself off when not in use. Breezie tablet: Breezie is an android tablet interface that has been modified for those who may have a slight hand tremor or anyone who has difficulty manipulating touch-screen devices. The text is large and the system is extremely userfriendly, allowing seniors to play games, contact friends via email or call, shop, pay bills, look at photos, etc. BrainHQ: This interactive device allows individuals to use their sense of touch to increase their vision, attention span, and speed of mental processing. It’s a game format that while simple to play adapts to the user’s current ability level, offering more of a challenge as they improve or decreasing in difficulty if needed. BrainHQ certainly benefits seniors but has also been used to train groups of professional athletes and police officers.

Smelling

Brain HQ

Essential Awakenings

Essential Awakenings: Taste and smell are the senses that first tend to weaken as we age. Scent therapy, the simple act of inhaling strong aromas, is thought to enhance and improve one’s ability to smell. Essential Awakenings offers 50 different scents such as grass, chocolate, popcorn, and peppermint to not only improve one’s sense of smell but also to awaken memories. Scent is tied to the part of the brain that triggers emotions and memory. As reported in the Essential Awakenings kit, The Sense of Smell Institute found that over the course of a year, memory recall from scent is an amazing 65 percent, higher than any other form of recall. 44 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

If our senses are diminished, our mobility can suffer as a result. The Thrive Center offers gait and balance testing to determine whether the issue is related to sight (vestibular), touch (tactile), neuropathy of the feet, or hearing. Once the cause is determined, suggestions can be made to improve those senses and thus improve mobility. “If you know where your deficit is, you can work on your strengths,” Sheri says. That’s the heart of the Thrive Center’s work: to bring technology to those who need it in order to increase their quality of life. Don’t let a fear of technology keep you from checking out these innovations. Everything I tried was easy-to-use and to understand, and Sheri was with me all the way through. “We want to empower our guests, to allow them to see these devices in an open environment and to see what possibilities might exist for their homes and their lives.” The Thrive Center 204 E. Market St. Louisville, KY 40202 502.631.9422 thrivecenterky.org

“I love my... fishing poles.” — Jack Sturgeon

As co-owner of Blades Salon and Spa for over 40 years, Jack held an integral role in the Louisville fashion scene. He and his team prepped countless local celebrities such as Derby princesses, on-air personalities for FOX News, and models who worked for local fashion consultant Jo Ross. Jack was present for the grand openings of the Louisville Science Center and the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. He fondly remembers a photo shoot on the rooftop by the twin spires at Churchill Downs, as well as a more unconventional adventure on a local highway. “We had a

great run,” Jack says. “I felt part of everything wonderful happening in Louisville.” These days Jack works part-time as a stylist at Vertu Salon and spends the rest of his week at his Nolin Lake house, where he has returned to his rural roots. Jack has owned the house for years, but after selling Blades, he purchased another 43 acres. He has cleaned up the property, created walking paths, set up deer-feeding stations, and decorated with stone and glass sculptures that Jack makes himself. “What I love at this point in my life, after years of bright lights and blaring music, is the dew, the

fog, the deer in the woods, the birds flying overhead, and, most of all, the fishing,” Jack says. “My buddy and I get on the lake and fish until about 10 or 11 every morning. If I want a nap, I take one, and then I get to work landscaping, woodworking, or doing whatever I feel like that day.” Jack points out that he is grateful for his wife Jennifer and son John who bring true equilibrium to his days. “My life is awesome,” he says. “Everyone looks for balance in their professional, personal, and spiritual lives. I’ve found that balance and am happy and healthy these days.”

F

ew Kentucky foods are more famous than the Modjeska. Invented in Louisville by Anton Busath during the 1880s, this delightful confection made of fresh marshmallow enrobed in caramel was named after Polish actress Helena Modjeska, who was performing in our beloved city. The version for sale at Muth’s Candies downtown is an absolute must when introducing yourself to a Modjeska since it is traditional and delicious. Those at Bauer’s Candies in Lawrenceburg are also yummy. However, I am over the moon to report that Art Eatables has crafted its own spin on the classic by adding Old Forester bourbon, smoked sea salt, and the highest quality dark chocolate. This version is fresh, rich, and pillowy soft with a beautiful depth of flavor that will keep you coming back for more. If you’d prefer no chocolate, the more traditional Sea Salted Modjeskas are almost as decadent and just as satisfying. Grab a package of each flavor from the Art Eatables stores at 631 S. Fourth St. and 819 W. Main St., or from their website: arteatables.com IG: @ArtEatables

HELPING SENIORS NAVIGATE A MOVE Downsizing or moving to a new home can be stressful, but Living Spaces by Lyn offers guidance and peace of mind By Barbara Myerson Katz Photo by Melissa Donald

E

veryone knows that moving into a new home can be stressful. That goes double when the move requires downsizing and the person moving is a senior citizen with health issues or without family nearby to help. Lyn Mabry, owner of Living Spaces by Lyn, which specializes in home staging, renovations, and interior design, recognized the challenges faced by senior clients navigating moves and has added a service to her business that gives them a special assist. “We decided to incorporate a senior moving specialist,” Lyn says, to provide help to clients sorting through decades’ worth of belongings, staging their homes for sale, and moving into smaller quarters such as a patio home or assisted living apartment. Living Spaces by Lyn’s senior moving specialist Chris Hoganson says when clients or their families request a senior move consultation, she starts by listening. “When you go from a home that might have 3,000 square feet to an apartment that’s under 700, that’s saying goodbye to a lot of important things in your life,” which can be both distressing and overwhelming. Adding to the challenge, many seniors have to move quickly because of medical emergencies or other circumstances.

“Once people have a plan, a move is not so overwhelming.”

Following an initial consultation, Chris can visit the new home with a client to take measurements and sketch out plans to coordinate existing belongings with new items that will enhance the space. Back in the client’s original home, she develops a plan to de-clutter and stage the home for sale, providing connections with home repair specialists, movers, antique dealers, and donation sites. “Once people have a plan, a move is not so overwhelming,” Chris says. “They start to be able to concentrate on the new stage. When you get to your new home, what do you plan on doing? What are you looking forward to? I love my clients and really love to hear their history and their stories,” she adds. “Their life experiences are rich, so they’re not just downsizing. They’re right-sizing so they can continue.” Today’s Transitions / Spring 2020

THE PLUS ONE:

Now is a great time to visit Farmington Historic Plantation to see the gardens in bloom.

Farmington Historic Plantation

W

e are fortunate to have several historic homes and museums in Louisville that give us a look back in time. One of the oldest is Farmington, finished in 1816, an 18-acre site that was once the center of a hemp plantation owned by John and Lucy Speed. The 14-room, Federal-style brick plantation house is said to be based on a design by Thomas Jefferson and has several Jeffersonian architectural features. Abraham Lincoln visited the plantation in 1841, twenty years before he would be elected president. Today, a visit to the home reveals a central hall off of which are two octagonal rooms that served as dining room and parlor, two bedrooms, a study, and family sitting room. The gardens are abloom in the spring — a perfect time to visit. Maybe plan your time here to coincide with Farmington’s annual plant sale on Saturday, April 18; Derby Social on Thursday, April 23; or its Derby Breakfast on Saturday, May 2. 50 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

THE LUNCH:

Jack Fry’s Restaurant

A Treat yourself to a nice meal of Ruby Red Trout (top) and Kentucky Opera cake (above) for dessert at Jack Fry’s Restaurant.

lthough Abraham Lincoln never visited historic Jack Fry’s Restaurant (est. 1933), many other famous folks have graced its doors as evidenced by the multitude of black and white photos gracing the walls. From athletes to movie stars to political figures — and a race horse or two thrown in for good measure — half the fun of eating in this popular place is trying to see how many faces you recognize. And of course, the food never fails to please. I cannot resist its offering of shrimp and grits, although I hear that Jack’s burger is delicious and hearty. Any of the lunch entrees from the chicken salad to the cobb salad to the short ribs are sure to please as well. Having a reservation is recommended, and I request a booth in the front room with its sophisticated bar and lively atmosphere. Save room for dessert. To top off a day well spent, I would suggest the Kentucky Opera cake or fruit cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Jack Fry’s Restaurant

Not To Miss

By Gioia Patton

Anything Goes

Derby Dinner Playhouse The S.S. American is sailing between New York and England with an assemblage of colorful passengers: Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist; her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has come aboard to try to win the favor of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is engaged to another passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh); and, a second-rate con man named Moonface Martin, aka “Public Enemy #13.” Music + dance + the age-old tale of boy meets girl during a shipboard voyage, Anything Goes is wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most captivating and toe-tapping scores (i.e. You’re the Top, It’s De-lovely, I Get a Kick Out of You). 80 Spring 2020 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

WHEN: April 1-May 17, various performances WHERE: Derby Dinner Playhouse, 525 Marriott Drive, Clarksville, Indiana TICKETS: $34-$49 (group rates available for groups of 20 or more) CONTACT: 812.288.8281 or derbydinner.com
