FROM THE EDITOR

Forget about Your Age

T

wo months ago, I received an advertisement from AARP. I couldn’t believe it. My first thought was, “Really? Who at the AARP headquarters decided it was time to put my name on their mailing list?” I know my college days are over, but the thought of being categorized as “not young anymore” was unsettling for me — and I know I am not alone. What is it about aging that makes some people — including me — cringe? Perhaps it’s the belief that with old age comes invisibility and irrelevance in a society that idolizes youthfulness. Whether we’re approaching the aging crossroads or have already passed it, we can’t let age be the defining factor of happiness. We can be useful, relevant, and visible. It’s not too late to… • Find opportunities to become involved in activities.

Let Your Talents

By Holly Hinson Photos by Erika Doll

Moving to a senior living community is a significant transition for most seniors. It may mean they have suffered the loss of a spouse or house or lifestyle. But some seniors use their new accommodations and new situation as a new lease on life. They reach out to their neighbors and neighborhood to make an impact. They embrace the opportunity to share gifts or talents with a new group of peers, whether that be a green thumb, an artistic talent, or just the gift of gab.

rene Spicer has been passionate about gardening for as long as she can remember. In her more than four years as a resident of Treyton Oak Towers, the 83-year-old has found a few ways to share her green thumb and love for nature with others in her community. The gardening committee that Irene created when she came to Treyton Oak is in preparation mode now that spring has arrived. “When we started out, we were just maintaining the three gardens we have here, but then we decided it would be nice to add a butterfly garden,” Irene says. Last year, Irene and her six-person gardening committee tried that for the first time, but they watched as the butterflies came out of their cocoons and unfortunately, just flew away. This year, Irene says they have made some adjustments to the plan, including enclosing all of the Treyton Oak garden spaces. “This winter, we read up on it and plan to make sure our spring plantings also include plenty of plants that attract butterflies.” The butterfly garden has also attracted some very popular new residents — turtles. “People just line up in the hall to watch them,” Irene says. “We feed them and take good care of them. They go underground for the winter, but they come back.” PAGE 8 >>

Bringing beauty to the surroundings has made a big impact on the whole community at Treyton Oak. Watching for the seasonal return of some regular visitors is something that brings joy to residents, Irene says. “We have a holly tree in one of our gardens, and every year we have a robin who comes to make her nest and have her babies there,” Irene says. “Everyone gets excited when the robin appears. It’s contagious.” Irene, who before her retirement had volunteered as a hostess for the annual Old Louisville Garden Tour, says there is something magical about gardens. “There is just something about seeing a garden come to life, having been dormant for six months, and to see it bloom out again as if nothing’s happened. It’s like resurrection, Easter time, and springtime — things just start coming to life.” The gardens have brought beauty and meaning to the lives of the community’s residents, who take advantage of the walking path around the property to enjoy the nature around them. “When you walk out into that garden, you forget you’re in a senior place; you just know you’re in a beautiful place. To me, that’s how it should be. We know that one of these days we’re going to be like some of these plants and we’re going to fade away, but right now we’re coming back every spring to go outside and get the garden going again.”

"THERE IS JUST SOMETHING ABOUT SEEING A GARDEN COME TO LIFE...”

O

ne of the first people you will talk to if you tour The Forum at Brookside — IRENE SPICER is 84-year-old Jimmie York. Since he moved there in February 2017, TREYTON OAK TOWERS he has made it his mission to RESIDENT be an enthusiastic ambassador of hospitality. “I’m a neighborly sort of person, so I meet with people who just moved in, orient them to the front desk, and how to get things done,” Jimmie says. One aspect of living at The Forum that Jimmie introduces to newcomers is the weekly worship service. “We hold an ecumenical service for folks who can’t get to church on a Sunday. It’s an ongoing thing we have had with a volunteer chaplain for 20 years. The service does a lot toward helping our community maintain its spiritual balance. The whole idea is everybody has to have some spiritual ties, so we provide a service for folks to worship and to draw close to God in their own way. That’s something that’s important to us,” Jimmie says. One resident even attends through a phone hookup in her room so she can be a part of the service even though she is unable to be there in person. The worship service provides another way for residents to connect with one another. “Something seniors have to learn sometimes is you have to work a little bit at being congenial Irene Spicer, pictured above, says natural beauty has a great impact on her community.

with each other. We want to be treated pleasantly so we have to treat others pleasantly. Sometimes you have to initiate some conversation, or go out of your way to have lunch or dinner with someone you’ve never met before. That’s one of the things I’ve gotten a little better at since being here.” Kathy Embry, sales director at The Forum, says Jimmie’s presence makes a real difference. “He is instrumental to our community — always friendly, always positive, and upbeat,” she says. “He’s always ready to greet newcomers and have dinner with them, and make them feel really good about moving to The Forum.”

ringing an opportunity for creative expression to her community at The Altenheim, Annette Swann is a former art educator and artist. The 77-year-old has initiated several art projects in the last two and a half years since coming to the community, including a wall hanging project with the help of many residents. According to Annette, the wall hanging was done in the tradition of block quilting, and Annette prepared kits with art supplies for staff, while residents participated during activity times at the facility. “We created the piece using a basic Early American motif similar to a sunbonnet baby, a common quilting theme. More than a dozen residents contributed, and some staff as well. Even one of the employees’ sister, who is a shut-in, was able to do some blocks.” The fabric wall hanging that emerged from the project is 3-foot by 5-foot with 18 individual rectangles and hangs on a dowel rod on the second floor outside Annette’s apartment. Its final home will likely be in the newly created activity center at The Altenheim. Annette says the collaborative art project gave residents the opportunity to socialize and revisit artistic skills and expression. “Each person individualized their 10 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

work. They decorated it, selected the colors they wanted to use, or added some things. They enjoyed reminiscing about similar activities they were more skilled at when they were younger,” she says. Annette, who retired as an associate professor from the University of Northern Iowa, says the collaborative art project has had a positive impact and inspired other art projects in the senior community, such as rug hooking. “It has enabled me to lend my talents as an art educator to benefit others. It keeps me out of trouble and gives me the chance to keep my hand in.”

EASE YOUR CHRONIC PAIN

Stick It to the Pain

W

hen Michelle Hawley Buck, 49, could no longer tolerate the excruciating pain in her lower back and leg, her doctor referred her to a physical therapist trained in dry needling. “I have neuropathy in my left leg, and I get severe cramps,” Michelle says. “Dry needling is about the only thing that relieves the cramping, so I go every two weeks at physical therapy.” Dry needling is a technique used by physical therapists for the treatment of pain and movement impairments. It can treat an enormous range of conditions such as muscular pain, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, and more. In the majority of cases, dry needling patients only require two to three sessions for treatment, and the effects are long-lasting. The technique uses a “dry” needle, which means free of medication or injection. It is similar to, but not the same as, an acupuncture needle. These small, thin needles are inserted into the muscle at the trigger points causing the pain. Whereas in acupuncture the needle is inserted and left stationary, in dry needling the needle is moved around to cause muscle contractions and spasms in order to improve muscle flexibility and functionality. In some cases, an electrical current (“E-stim”) is added to enhance the treatment. E-stim helps to stimulate blood flow and provide analgesic effects to help numb the pain, often providing a more long-term effect. “I don’t feel the needles going through the skin,” Michelle says. “When it hits the muscle, it begins to burn, and then the twitching starts. It’s sort of like an induced charley horse. It’s uncomfortable, but once it releases it feels so much better! It’s kind of like a deep tissue massage, except it’s going directly into the muscle — deeper than a massage can get. It goes directly to the source of the problem.” Chuck Wagner, 60, used dry needling to relieve his neck and upper back pain. “I was a pro motocross rider when I was younger. That’s constant pounding on the joints. Toward the end of my career I had a pretty bad crash that left me with constant [neck and upper back] pain,” Chuck says. “As I’ve gotten older, it’s gotten worse to the point that sometimes I can hardly turn my head. Pain meds aren’t an option for me, so my doctor sent me to physical therapy.” Usually dry needling is used in conjunction with or as part of a larger treatment plan. Chuck says, “After they diagnosed my issue, we started with the needles once a week. I have worked out in a gym six days a week for 30 years, so I was allowed to 16 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

continue going, but my physical therapist altered my workouts to include a lot more stretching and fewer weight-bearing exercises. I also had a massage each week. I swear after the first needling session, the difference was pretty dramatic. It felt like a knot at the base of my neck had been straightened out. I only had to get needled two more times. It’s now been about three months and I’m still feeling good. I do still go for massages every couple of weeks, just to keep the muscles relaxed.” Typically dry needling is an out-of-pocket expense not covered by insurance. In the Louisville area, treatments start at approximately $40 per session, in addition to the cost of physical therapy, which makes it very affordable for most. “I’d have paid just about anything. When you’re in constant pain, you’re willing to do anything to get relief,” Chuck says. “Thankfully, the cost really wasn’t that bad.”

Dry needling is about the only thing that relieves the cramping, so I go every two weeks at physical therapy.” — Michelle Hawley Buck



It’s Heck Getting Old!

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

PROBLEM:

Keep Your Hearing We live in a noisy world full of machines and equipment. Sometimes the barrage of sound around us is so loud that continued exposure can cause permanent damage to our sensitive hearing mechanism. Whether you’re at a concert, at the shooting range, watching or participating in sporting events, or mowing your lawn, having to yell to be heard is a sign that you’re in a dangerously loud environment. Hearing protection is a must in such situations even if you already wear a hearing aid, says Dr. Ingrid Edwards, audiologist and clinical director of the Heuser Hearing Institute. It may not be possible to reverse existing hearing loss, but with proper care you can keep the hearing you have and prevent further damage.

SOLUTION: Protective Earplugs Basic disposable or reusable earplugs offer good protection against excessive noise. Hunters, amateur singers and musicians, and other people who need to hear their surroundings while still protecting their ears can get earplugs with electronic enhancers that suppress harmful sounds without sacrificing hearing ability. For more frequent or extended wear, custom earplugs in both regular and electronic types may provide more comfort than one-size-fits-all models. “The skin on the ear is thin, and the ear bruises easily, especially as we age,” Dr. Edwards says, “so make sure your earplugs fit well and are comfortable to wear for the duration of your activity.” Where to get them: Regular earplugs are available at most drugstores. Electronic models can be found in sporting and outdoor stores and online. An audiologist will make custom earplugs to fit. Also see the Heuser Hearing Institute shop at amazon.com/shop/heuserhearing. Price: $4-$6 for a multipack of regular earplugs (reusable ones may cost a little more); $15-$20 for a pair of electronic earplugs; ask your audiologist about the price of custom earplugs. 18 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

SOLUTION: Protective Earmuffs If you don’t like the feel of earplugs, you can opt for a pair of protective earmuffs instead. Like earplugs, earmuffs are also available in electronic versions that provide both sound access and noise suppression for when you want to hear your environment without exposing your ears to dangerous levels of sound volume. Earmuffs are also a somewhat cheaper alternative to custom earplugs for people who find that regular earplugs don’t fit right or hurt, Dr. Edwards says. Where to get them: Available in sporting and outdoor stores, and online. Also see the Heuser Hearing Institute shop at amazon.com/shop/heuserhearing. Price: $20-$25 for basic models, $50 and up for electronic versions.

FITNESS

Pickleball Is the Next Big Thing!

O

ne of the biggest adult recreational crazes right now is pickleball. The game is something of a cross between tennis and ping pong and is designed to be easy to learn and play. Players use oversized ping-pong paddles to hit a wiffle ball over a three-foot net on an indoor court. It is fun for adults ages 18 to 90. Paddles and balls are often provided at each location. “Seniors have many, many options for cardio, and the key is it has got to be fun!” says Karen Wyatt , healthy living director at the YMCA in Oldham County. “Pickleball has really become such a big trend. It is the next big thing.” Karen says that group and team activities can be loads of fun because not only does it boost a person’s cardio, but it also is a social outlet with lots of laughter, clapping, and cheering. Pickleball is often played as a doubles game. Karen also suggests sports such as golf, dancing, and hiking because they are both a fitness workout and an experience with other people, thereby reducing feelings of isolation and loneliness among seniors.

“Twenty years ago, everyone thought seniors had to be in chairs to exercise,” Karen says. “Today, we know that’s not true.” “Functional fitness for seniors” and “enhanced fitness” are terms that mean a robust mixture of cardio, strength training, and interval training for older adults. Moves are modified to meet seniors’ needs. “Group activities offer socialization, education, motivation, and accountability,” Karen says. While a senior might be tempted to cancel an individual activity on a given day and stay home, she is much more reluctant to be a no-show if a team is depending on her. “Accountability is important,” Karen says. “We want seniors to feel included, excited, and successful. Cardio activities are such a great way to socialize. In my experience with people 65 and older, regular cardio exercise helps lift mood and increase stamina.” Karen suggests that a good way to get back into a team sport or recreational activity is to take a lesson. Beginner clinics are also an easy way to try a new game like pickleball.

FRIENDS By Julie Engelhardt llustration Brittany Granville

M

aking a friend can happen anytime, anywhere. Bonds are created out of circumstance or common interests. If we live far from our relatives, our friends become just like family and they are our support system. Yet as we grow older we know life doesn’t go on forever and that these friends will eventually pass on. Still, it’s not easy saying goodbye. PAGE 24>>

Six Ways to Cope with the Loss of a Friend

G

rieving the loss of a loved one is difficult for everyone, but when you’ve lost a friend, understanding how to cope with the grief can be complex. Genene Nisbet, Bereavement Services Specialist at Owen Funeral Home, says friends might have problems with navigating their way through grief, because the focus is typically on the family of the loved one. “Friends can become disenfranchised grievers...sometimes you don’t realize that you have the right to grieve.” Genene, who provides individual grief counseling and support groups, says there are many things you can do to begin the healing process.

1

Participate in the funeral service. “When I’ve had close friends die, we were able to get up and do a eulogy — all the friends did — and that was real meaningful to us. You can read scripture, SOMETIMES I THINK IT sing, or eulogize,” she says. IS DISORIENTING AND Don’t suppress your YOU DON’T REALIZE grief. “Recognize that [THE GRIEF] IS GOING you have the right to grieve TO FOLLOW YOU FOR the loss of your friend, and A WHILE. YOU THINK that it is not over in two THAT BECAUSE YOU’VE weeks.” Be willing to grieve the loss for as long as it takes. GONE BACK TO THE NORMALNESS OF Develop rituals. YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE “If you didn’t get to SUPPOSED TO BE OK, participate in the funeral BUT YOU AREN’T.” service in a way that helped you, you can develop your — Genene Nisbet own [ritual].” You can ask your church to display a certain type of flower in your friend’s memory or find another fun way of celebrating your loved one.

Recognize the role your friend played in your life. “You are grieving the person who died and then you are grieving the role that they played. Maybe this was the person I called when something was up with my kids or the person who kept me on track. You have to process it while you’re grieving. This helps you understand why you aren’t feeling right,” she says.

PICTURED ARE DAVID OWEN AND GENENE NISBET OF OWEN FUNERAL HOMES Owen Funeral Home also extends their grief support services to the community with the goal of keeping the bereaved socially engaged. Their services include: support groups for people who have either lost their spouse or child; monthly luncheons; a men’s breakfast; road trips; and other activities. “We want to serve families not just at the time of the funeral but after as well,” says Genene Nisbet, Bereavement Services Specialist at Owen Funeral Homes.

Pay attention to the emotional and physical aspects of your grief. Genene says you might realize that you are taking your anger out on the people closest to you and wonder why you are being irritable. “A lot of times that is grief for people, which is coming out sideways so it isn’t coming out in tears, because maybe they haven’t been given permission to cry about it because it was a friend and not a family member,” she says. Some people might overeat, not eat enough, or feel tired. These physical issues, Genene says, are also symptoms of grief.

Talk to someone about your loss. “Sometimes we just don’t take the time to sit down and talk with someone — especially if you’ve lost a close confidant. This is the person you talk to. You can talk to another friend, a spouse, a partner, a clergy person, or a grief counselor. Finding a place to take it is important. Don’t carry it all by yourself,” she says.

"OFTENTIMES PEOPLE HAVE MADE COMMUNITIES OF THEIR OWN AND HAVE REALLY STRONG CONNECTIONS WITH PEOPLE WHO AREN'T FAMILY." — CANDICE EVANS HOSPARUS HEALTH GRIEF COUNSELING CENTER

24 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

It takes time to heal after a loved one dies. Attending support groups can be valuable in guiding us through our feelings of anger, sadness, and that unshakable feeling of loss. Being surrounded by others who have experienced the loss of a loved one helps because they can empathize with our emotions. Ralph Hopkins knows what it’s like to lose a good buddy. His best friend died several years ago from a massive heart attack. The men met at church in 1964 right after Ralph graduated from college. “I felt very close to him because we had common values, and he was just a joy to be around,” he says. The death of his friend was particularly difficult to get through, especially when he was asked by the family to deliver the eulogy at the funeral. As a former minister, Ralph knew it was important to honor his friend in this way. Ralph turned to his faith to guide him through his loss. “As a minister, I had already preached at funerals and experienced death, but because of my strong faith, I have a belief that those who die in Christ go to heaven,” he explains. “I missed him desperately, but I was able to deal with my grief pretty well.” PASSING ON THE HELP Helping others deal with death has now become part of Ralph’s life. He is the leader of a chapter of a national organization called GriefShare, which meets at Westport Road Baptist Church. The meetings are held at different times during the year, for 13 weeks, and are open to anyone. During the sessions they discuss topics such as discovering why the grief experience is more difficult than imagined, how the death of a loved one affects your friendships, what grief can teach you about relationships, and how to continue living your own life. Candice Evans, manager of the Hosparus Health Grief Counseling Center for the last seven years, acknowledges that family members are the first to receive support from the community, but she says that friends need love as well. “Oftentimes people have made communities of their own and have really strong connections with people who aren’t family,” she says. “I think it’s important for people to understand that when you lose someone you’re going to be grieving. It doesn’t matter if that person was your spouse, an aunt, an uncle, or a parent. Even if it’s a friend you are going to experience the normal and natural reactions of the grief process.” CONTINUE THE RELATIONSHIP Lynn Powell, a grief counselor at Hosparus Health, adds that even though that person is gone, our relationship with that person still continues. “Figuring out how to maintain that connection with someone who is no longer physically here helps us to cope with the grieving process,” she says. “Continuing to talk to that person, focusing on positive memories, or treasuring physical objects like jewelry or articles of clothing helps. Writing letters to that person is also a way to stay connected.” Candice says there’s a point when you will be able to move on. “When you’re in your 60s, 70s, or 80s you will experience the loss of people in your life, but since you have that experience and have gone through this, you also have the resiliency to know you’re going to be OK,” she says. “You know this doesn’t feel good, but you’re at a stage in life where you can be more accepting of things. What helps to get through this is to find ways to give back to your community and think about what you’re doing for the next generation.” MAKE NEW FRIENDS Making new friends is sometimes difficult, but Candice advises people to have a willingness to put themselves out there. You may feel quite vulnerable, so it’s important to go with what makes you feel comfortable. “Making a list of interests and doing a self-inventory to identify who you want to be around, what you see yourself doing, and what you want to accomplish will help you connect with like-minded people,” she says. “A lot of those connections happen organically. Navigating the world allows you to be in the place and space to be connected to new people.”

rtist Penny Hundley recalls that even as a small child she loved drawing and painting. “We didn't have a TV when I was growing up so I spent my childhood reading, painting, and drawing at my little white table. The church we belonged to supplied me with paper scraps from the mimeograph machine, so I "MOST OF had unlimited supplies,” Penny says. “I made little THE TIME I books and copied images DON'T HAVE AN of birds and flowers out of Golden Nature Guides. IDEA WHEN My art supplies consisted I START." of one or two colored pencils, crayons, and a child's watercolor set.” Penny says she didn’t take any art classes in school. “In high school and college it killed me to walk past the art room. I loved the smell and seeing the brushes and paints in jars and the art on the walls. I wanted to be a part of that group, but I was on another track. In college, I majored in Spanish and sociology.” As an adult, Penny was involved with art on and off. She helped with projects at her two sons’ schools and donated pieces to fundraisers, but it was all very random, she says. Then, two years ago she really stepped up her art practice and made the decision to fully concentrate on using her talents. She entered her first art show in 2017 at Winterfair at Thomas Jefferson Unitarian Church. Since then, she has participated in the Louisville Artisans Guild — a juried art show — and has exhibited at Mellwood Penny Hundley has been painting and drawing since childhood. She loves to use bright colors Art Center and KORE Gallery.

My husband owns a residential contracting business, and I have incorporated copper wire and other scraps from the construction site in my paintings.” Penny has fun naming all her work. “Don Preston at Preston Arts Center once told me that every painting has a title. Sometimes the title comes as I'm doing the painting, or I have an idea before I start or after the painting is finished.” Penny tells a funny story: “I once found one of my own paintings at a yard sale. It was one that I had exhibited at a local restaurant, but when the exhibit was over I was out of town for an extended time and they couldn’t contact me. Eventually, someone from the restaurant took it home and it ended up in her yard sale for 25 cents. I bought it and sold it at that first Winterfair show — for much more than a quarter!”

ne would be hard-pressed to find anyone more excited about discovering her artist’s path than Greta Bemisderfer. Not only has she discovered she has a flair for painting, but she has uncovered much about herself. Her email designation ‘realgreta’ gives a clue into how this woman has come into her own after raising a family of four children. “My husband Charles was always the artist of the family,” Greta says. “When he retired he began concentrating on painting again, but it was always something in his life.” The couple moved to Louisville in 2005, and it was right after their 50th wedding anniversary in 2017 that, upon Charles’ urging, she considered going with him to a studio painting class. “I thought, ‘Well, I will try painting something on my own first and if it turns out OK I'll go with him. I sat down with a scene from a calendar as inspiration, and when I was through I discovered I had a flair for it.” Keeping her word, she spent six weeks attending the studio sessions. “It really wasn’t a class. There wasn't any instruction, just comments to [and from] the different participants. I needed more than that. I enrolled in a five-week basic drawing class with Jeremy Miller at Preston Arts Center.

30 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

"I OFTEN USE MY OWN PHOTOS AS INSPIRATION..."

There I learned about perspective, proportion, horizon, and vanishing point. Who knew about any of that?” Now Greta is taking an acrylic painting class with Dawn Johnston at Preston, where she is learning the value of a color chart and color theory. “I’m going to go paint.” Greta has a dedicated studio in her house and is very organized because she says, “clutter clutters my mind.” The studio has plenty of built-in cabinets and expansive countertops. “It is my go-to place. I can't wait to get there, and I get frustrated with interruptions. My favorite thing to say is, ‘OK. I'm going to go paint.’ “I love mixing paint. I am held hostage by red. I have a table easel and a floor easel in my studio. I use a glass palette and I am discovering the kind of brushes I like. I use Golden open acrylics as they are slower drying. I paint on canvas board rather than stretched canvas — mostly 11x14- or 12x16-inch size.”

Greta keeps a library of photo books and art books in her studio. She records a running list of her art supplies on the computer and stores inspirational photos by subject in file folders — clouds, shorelines, flowers, winter lakes. “It's been wonderful for Charles and I to do this together. We love to go to the state parks and take photos. I often use my own photos as inspiration for my paintings.” She has already had one painting included in an exhibit at the Woman's Club of Louisville and wants to participate in more exhibits and sell some of her work. “Right now I am concentrating on landscapes, but one of the fun things about all this is seeing what I really like to do,” Greta says. “Portraits? Abstracts? OK, let's try that.” Greta acknowledges that she soon learned more than just how to capture an image on canvas. “I realize I have to take control of my own life and be serious about it. This new path has given me a real shot of confidence. It's just like a cupboard has opened up. It was always there, but now it's open. I like the common language that comes with artists and the camaraderie and how we encourage each other. I think this whole artist thing is like a spiritual experience.”

TECH TALK

Lights Off (and On)!

A

t 65, your eyes require twice as much light as they did when you were 20. Inadequate lighting contributes to decreased depth perception and becomes a safety concern, especially in stairways, bathrooms, and kitchens. Seasoned eyes are also more sensitive to glare, so lighting must not only be plentiful, but well shielded. In order to properly illuminate your surroundings, experts recommend adding multiple layers of lighting as you age. This can be as simple as adding a few more lamps to a room with a central chandelier, painting a room a lighter color to maximize brightness, switching out opaque lampshades, or eliminating shiny objects to reduce glare. Or, you can include some higher-tech solutions like wireless dimmers that can crank up the illumines with the command of your voice, light a dark hallway as you make your way to the bathroom at 2am, or automatically turn on and off at certain times of the day. Check below for a few options that may shed some light on the subject.

L

OW-TECH OPTIONS:

Light Switch Enlarger ($6.95) k https://www.elderstore.com/lamp-switch-enlargers.aspx Good for folks with Parkinson’s or arthritis or the rest of us that continuously fumble for that tiny lamp switch. Just attach the larger knob over your existing switch, and voila! l Wall Switch Extension ($11.99) https://www.elderstore.com/wall-switchextension-handle.aspx The Wall Switch Extension Handle puts wall switches within easy reach of wheelchair users or people with limited reach by providing a footlong extension to a standard toggle switch. Simply hang the apparatus over an existing switch and pull down for lighting. Add a portable Task Lamp ($-$$$) Be sure to purchase a task lamp with 1,000 lumens of light (100 watts incandescent or 12 watts LED). Adding this to an already lit room will increase the lumens to 1,500, which is ample for 80-year-old eyes. Plug-in Timers (around $20) Any hardware store will have plug-in light timers, which encourage safety, security, and savings. Simply plug in and connect to your existing lights, set the timer, and the apparatus will turn your lights on and off.

32 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

HIGH-TECH OPTIONS: Philips Hue Dimmer ($23 + bulbs) If you are already using Philips Hue bulbs, this wireless remote is an easy transition to Smart Lighting. • No installation (just peel and stick the dimmer switch on the wall; switch can be removed via magnets to use as a remote). • You can set schedules. (For example, set lights to dim at 4pm, increase lumens at 6pm, and then turn off at 10pm). • Can connect to Alexa, Google Home, and Apple Homekit for voice commands (great for safety in middle of the night). • Energy efficient technology. • One switch is good for 10 Smart Bulbs. Drawbacks: no motion-sensors; must use Philips Hue bulbs. Lutron Caseta Wireless Dimmer ($160 for starter kit) Caseta seems to be at the forefront of smart lighting. Its platform promotes the integration of multiple light sources to create “scenes” (i.e. mood lighting or bright wattage). • Automatically turns on and off when you are home. • Programmable to turn on random house lights when you are away to create the appearance of being home. • Programmable to set schedules. • Compatible with Alexa, Google Home, and Apple Homekit for voice commands (great for safety in middle of the night). • Boasts ease of installation and connects to existing lamps and bulbs. Drawbacks: requires a Smart Bridge that plugs into your home’s router and connects with smart lighting; initial cost.

EXPERIENCE REQUIRED: Seniors On a Mission to Change Lives By Barbara Myerson Katz Photos by Patti Hartog

Senior citizen volunteers have long been a mainstay of organizations that count on them to help deliver important community services. The Louisville Metro Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, for example, has been a source of local elder volunteers for more than 40 years. With retiring baby boomers joining the ranks of folks with time to spare, it’s no surprise, then, that there are more volunteer opportunities than ever for members of the community who have logged decades of experience. We talked to three active volunteers who, however you categorize their ages, are truly seasoned citizens. PAGE 36 >>

KENTUCKY REFUGEE MINISTRIES VOLUNTEER: BONNIE LOSSIE

As a registered nurse and art therapist, Bonnie Lossie, 71, devoted her professional career to working closely with people in need. When she retired, it was a natural fit for her to become a volunteer teacher of English to recent immigrants in the Elder Program sponsored by Kentucky Refugee Ministries and Catholic Charities. Twice a week, in the basement of Highland United Methodist Church on Cherokee Road, Bonnie works with some of Louisville’s newest arrivals from countries such as Bhutan, Iraq, Cuba, and the Democratic Republic of Congo, who speak little or no English but aspire to become American citizens within seven years, as required by law. She says helping older adults learn basics like the alphabet and how to write their names and addresses provides important preparation for citizenship. In each two-hour session, Bonnie says, “I’m totally engaged. I don’t use that kind of energy anywhere else, because I’m observing what that person already has attained and what they need to learn.” And she gains from the experience 36 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

LEADERSHIP LOUISVILLE/ENCORE LOUISVILLE VOLUNTEER: KEN MIDDLETON

It would be an understatement to say that Ken Middleton, 72, is an active community volunteer. Among other post-retirement endeavors, in 2013 he sparked the idea for a program — for which he now serves on the steering committee — that encourages baby boomers like himself who are in or near retirement to use their skills and experience to assist local nonprofit organizations. Under the auspices of Leadership Louisville, Encore Louisville urges graduates of past Leadership Louisville classes, generally age 50 and over, to apply for the program, which, Ken says, keeps top professionals connected to the community. After more than two decades in television news, including three years as president and general manager of WHAS-TV, followed by stints as vice president of operations and support services at Louisville-based National Center for Families Learning, and as a marketing strategist at Louisville’s Alexander+Hughes, Ken (Leadership Louisville Class of 2000) says he was looking for a way to tap into the energy and

enthusiasm of Leadership Louisville grads who want to continue to make a positive impact. “It’s something I feel I’m supposed to do, and I love doing it,” he says. “Looking back over my career, the theme, really, of all of it is public service, of trying to make a difference in the community.” Besides helping to forge Encore Louisville, now in its fifth year, Ken also volunteers with the downtown Rotary Club, serving as a liaison with education partners in the Rotary Promise scholarship program, which sponsors students at Iroquois and Western high schools who want to attend Jefferson Community and Technical College. He also puts in time with that program as a mentor, meeting with students to help them develop interviewing and networking skills. For Ken, who estimates he spends at least 20 to 25 hours a week giving back to the community, you might say that volunteering has become a second career. “It’s difficult for me to imagine a retirement that’s self-focused,” he says. “I would hope that everyone would find what their passion is and give to that. It’s an incredible opportunity for those who want to make a difference to turn all their talent and time to make a difference when they didn’t have a chance before.”

LOUISVILLE METRO RETIRED SENIOR AND VOLUNTEER PROGRAM VOLUNTEER: URSULA ECKSTEIN

Ursula Eckstein, 91, says now that she’s “older,” she needs “a little more time” to get ready in the morning — so she starts her seven to 10 volunteer hours per week at Hosparus Health of Louisville at 8:30am, rather than at 8am as she used to. She started there about five years ago as a volunteer coordinator, and when there wasn’t enough of that work to keep her busy, added human resources paperwork and filing to her duties. Ursula has been volunteering for decades, beginning in her native Germany in the 1960s, where she taught German to the American children of military service members as the wife of an American military member herself. Later, in Kentucky, she volunteered with the Red Cross at Fort Knox, taking patients’ vital signs at the base hospital.

“You find the people are wonderful, and you feel like you are doing something for someone else.” – URSULA ECKSTEIN was asked to create a quarterly newsletter for volunteers — something she’d never done before — and eagerly tackled the task, spending hours at the computer. Almost 30 years ago, the former office manager began volunteering at Riverside, the historic home at Farnsley-Moremen Landing, helping with mailings and

keeping the gift shop organized. Ursula finds the surroundings in southwest Jefferson County so beautiful that whenever Riverside needs her, she says she’s still happy to make the 48-mile round trip from her home in the Breckenridge Lane area. (She took and passed an AARP senior driving refresher course last year.) “You have to figure out what you want to do with your life,” Ursula says. And when you volunteer, “You find the people are wonderful, and you feel like you are doing something for someone else.” She notes the satisfaction that comes from a commitment to do for others, to get up in the morning with an opportunity to learn something new. Ursula, who likes to sing and polka at Louisville’s German American Club, says, “It’s an honor to serve wherever I can. It’s not just for them. It’s also for me.”



Calming Parkinson’s

W

By Carrie Vittitoe

hile no one would ask for a neurodegenerative disease, especially the second most common one after Alzheimer’s, there are many treatment options available for people who are diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Although a PD diagnosis is understandably scary, individuals with PD can still have active and fulfilling lives. WHAT IS PARKINSON’S DISEASE?

Parkinson’s disease affects the neurons in the brain that produce dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps brain cells deliver messages to each other. “Dopamine acts like the oil in a car,” says Dr. Kathrin LaFaver, neurologist and director of the Parkinson’s Movement Disorder Clinic at UofL Physicians. With a decrease in dopamine caused by the loss of dopamineproducing cells, patients begin to experience slower movement, tremors, stiffness, and difficulty walking. The average age of onset for Parkinson’s disease is 60, although people under the age of 40 can develop it. “The biggest risk factor for Parkinson’s disease is aging,” Dr. LaFaver says. “Pesticide exposure is a small risk factor.” People who develop Parkinson’s earlier in life generally have a slower progression of the disease; however, the life expectancy for most PD patients is only about two years less than for individuals without the disease. The types of Parkinson’s disease differ not only in terms of age of onset, but also in terms of symptoms. Idiopathic PD is the most common, but there is also Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP), Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus, and others. Patients with a typical progression of Parkinson’s disease will often first notice tremors, typically on one side of the body. Patients who present with gait or balance problems or memory impairment typically have forms of PD that progress faster. MEDICATION

“The mainstay of the treatments is a medication called Carbidopa-Levodopa,” Dr. LaFaver says. “It is essentially giving 40 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

[patients] the precursor to dopamine, and it really helps them. In general, it is well tolerated, but high doses can contribute to fatigue or hallucinations.” Patients often take a pill three or four times a day. SURGICAL TREATMENT

“The purpose of brain stimulation surgery (deep brain stimulation) is essentially having a pacemaker for the brain,” Dr. LaFaver says. “It can be very helpful for the treatment of tremors, as well as stiffness and slowness symptoms.” DBS is often an option for patients who are not responding well to medication. Electrodes are implanted in the basal ganglia section of the brain, and a battery is placed under the skin of the chest. The electrodes provide stimulation to the brain area and often improve quality of life. ACTIVITY AS A FORM OF TREATMENT

Lee Silverman Voice Treatment (LSVT) Big and Loud are two treatment protocols for helping patients improve their movement and speech. “Patients are coached to make their movements and voice bigger than they would be ordinarily,” Dr. LaFaver says. Dancing and other forms of rhythmic activity can help to retrain the brain. The YMCA has partnered with the Movement Disorders Clinic to offer Pedaling for Parkinson’s. Based on research out of the Cleveland Clinic, Parkinson’s patients ride stationary bikes with the goal of

increasing their revolutions per minute (rpms) to reduce symptoms. TEAM APPROACH TO PARKINSON’S CARE

It can often be helpful for Parkinson’s patients to seek care at a movement disorder clinic because “you have very easy access to multidisciplinary teams,” Dr. LaFaver says. Parkinson’s disease can have symptoms that affect more than just movement, such as depression, anxiety, constipation, bladder urgency, and insomnia. EMOTIONAL SUPPORT

The University of Louisville is in its fourth year of offering the PD Buddy Program in conjunction with the Parkinson Support Center of Kentuckiana. The Buddy Program places first-year medical students with Parkinson’s patients. They meet socially to develop a relationship and to help the students learn what Parkinson’s is like. “It’s been a good way to get medical students interested in the field. For patients, it’s been a great way to share their stories and for them to feel they help educate our students,” Dr. LaFaver says. ON THE HORIZON

Because Parkinson’s disease affects so many people, researchers are continuously working to find new and better treatments. Vaccination trials are in the works, as are redesigns of medications that are currently on the market, including a Levodopa inhaler.

WHAT I KNOW NOW

Carol Ely

Carol Ely has served as executive director of Historic Locust Grove since 2004. She is also an adjunct professor in the University of Louisville’s graduate program in public history. She has a bachelor’s degree in history and theater from Tufts University and earned her doctorate in American history from Brandeis University. Before moving to Louisville, she was assistant director of the Paul Revere House in Boston, Massachusetts. She is the author of Jewish Louisville: Portrait of a Community. Her current obsession? The musical Hamilton. A skill everyone should have?

The ability to listen. A hands-on skill? Know how to cook. My dad, my husband, and both of my sons (one is a professional chef) can cook. You have to know how to feed yourself. What advice would you give the younger you?

It will all work out. I’m a worrier, but I’m lucky that it did all work out. What were your plans for yourself?

What I planned is what happened. I work in a museum, I teach, and I raised a family. I look forward to doing more writing. I like tying history to things people are concerned about today. What have you learned about yourself?

I’ve gotten past my early shyness. I realize that I have a right to have an opinion and a place at the table. Pet peeve?

People who don’t listen, who don’t hear you. They can’t absorb what you are saying due to their own preconceptions. Can’t get the knack of?

Staying in the present moment. My mind is always on multiple tracks and sometimes I’m not focused on what’s right in front of me.

Would like to meet?

Carol Ely

Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote Hamilton. I’m fascinated that he is not an historian and yet made history so accessible to people. Turning Points?

When I left home and went to college, I knew I was kind of on my own at that point and responsible for my decisions and my life. Another one was when I came to Locust Grove. It was what I was working toward and offered a possibility and opportunity to really shape something. How do you motivate people?

People need a voice in what they work on and are passionate about. I try to find an overlap between their passion and what we want to accomplish. What does the average American not understand about history?

There is a difference between what happened in the past and how we tell the story of what happened. We are always learning, and there are multiple viewpoints. A lesson you learned the hard way?

You have to let go of things you have no control over. That’s a lesson I keep learning and relearning. What’s the best advice you’ve gotten?

Oddly, a bit of good business advice came from the novel

My favorite is Edmund Morgan, who writes concisely and eloquently about the American Revolutionary period. Also Nathaniel Philbrick, Simon Schama, and Russell Shorto.

How do you keep your spirits up?

Talking with other people. We have fantastic volunteers who all want to be here, and I just go out and talk to them about anything — how their day has been or what program they are working on. What the world needs now...

I wish more people understood the common good that comes from great schools, great parks, great social service programs, and great libraries, and would be more willing to fund them.

Featuring: Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

This summer’s featured book club is the Bookies. One member agrees in advance to lead a discussion of the chosen book. Members suggest books they have read or books they have heard about that they think would be interesting to the group, and the group votes on upcoming books for the next several months. The Bookies challenge themselves to read books in a variety of genres and topics, including authors from Barbara Kingsolver and John Irving to contemporary writers such as Tayari Jones and Silas House. We caught up with member Jeanne Potts for some insights into a recently reviewed book, Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi.

Excerpt from Homegoing:

“Weakness is treating someone as though they belong to you. Strength is knowing that everyone belongs to themselves.” What have you learned from this book?

to read and discuss this book. It enabled us to have an in-depth conversation and a more complete understanding of the history of slavery and the lasting impact it continues to have on race relations in the U.S. today. We explored the ways in which each of us could be agents of positive change, even in small ways.

If you could hang out with one character from the book, who would it be?

What types of genre specific titles would you recommend to people who enjoyed Homegoing?

We learned many things from this book, including glimpses into the operation of the slave trade in Africa. The book also reveals how racism has continued long after slavery was abolished and how this legacy of racism has affected future generations.

She takes weekly art classes at the University of Louisville and creates numerous fiber and ceramic pieces that are on display throughout the commonwealth and Indiana. She devotes hours of community service to organizations such as The Kentucky Center, Sisters of History, The Frazier History Museum, the Western Branch Library Support Association, and the West Louisville Women’s Collaborative. She also spent years caring for older relatives — her mother and her aunt just passed away last year. As a girl, Elmer Lucille attended Western Elementary, Madison Junior High, and Central High schools — all African-American schools. After graduation she attended Municipal College, an all African-American institution, then switched to Nazareth College (now Spalding University), Louisville’s first four-year Catholic institution for women. “At the time there were no African-Americans in my class because it was the third year that they had been opened,” she says. She graduated in 1953 with a major in chemistry and a minor in math. In 1966, she was hired at Brown-Forman as a junior chemist, the first African-American to hold that position. She worked her way up to senior analytical chemist and retired after 31 years in 1997. After retirement she began concentrating more on her art. She was introduced to ceramics when she experienced problems with her hands. “My first teacher was an art therapist,” she explains. “I took the class at Seneca High School.” After meeting an art instructor from the University of Louisville, she began taking art classes there in 1981. In 2000 she began working toward a master’s degree. She earned her master’s in creative arts in 2002. “I create art and make it for myself,” she explains. “I don’t make it to sell, actually, but selling is OK. I have exhibitions all over.” Her work can be found throughout Kentucky at places such as the Main Louisville Free Public Library, the Louisville Water Tower, Actors Theatre, and also in Indiana at the Carnegie Center and The Gallery on Pearl Street in New Albany. Although her work is well-known, she sticks to her weekly art classes at the university. “Unless you’re really dead or sick, I don’t miss classes,“ she says. She enjoys her time there as it keeps her motivated. “The main thing is that you have interaction with young people,” she says. “You have an intergenerational group of people and you share what you’re doing.” Elmer Lucille encourages older people to get out as often as possible. “You need to extend your family — make a family — as you get older,” she says. She advocates doing what you can to enhance your life. 48 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

These achievers, each 60-75 years young, teach us that it’s never too late to turn a dream into reality. By Megan M. Seckman Photos by Patti Hartog

“We hope to

spend every last

nickel seeing the world, mostly

where others do not go...” – Sarah Dutton

t 72, Sarah Dutton proves it is never too late for adventure. For the past 25 years, she and her husband, Bill Stewart, have traveled in their 1965 Airstream camper (TinCan) throughout the United States. “She’s vintage, like us!” Sarah says. The couple has camped in all 48 of the lower states aside from Louisiana and North Dakota, and for the record, she’s visited those two states but just didn’t stay the the night. “We are leaving in April for the Cumberland Gap; Asheville, North Carolina; Huntington Beach, South Carolina; and Savannah, Georgia. We love to drift, explore, hike, bike, and get off the beaten path. We generally love ‘what is around the next bend,’ and our motto has always been ‘It’s better living in a 7x11 space.’ We love the solitude and the personal time together where all of the fiddle-diddle of life seems so unimpressive.” Sarah attributes her 70-year spirit of adventure to taking care of herself by spending time outdoors, eating healthy, having young friends and an open mind, downsizing, and filling herself up with joy. On the road, in TinCan, Sarah cooks all meals on an open campfire with fresh ingredients they’ve gathered at local farmers markets — an adventure in itself. This past winter, Bill and Sarah traveled to Cayman Brac and recently visited The Giant’s Causeway in Ireland. “We hope to spend every last nickel seeing the world, mostly where others do not go...just following a ragged road to see where it will lead.” PAGE 52 >>

his January, Carroll Grossman ran a 10K in McAllen, Texas. She also protested on the front lines against the border wall there. If you think these feats of energy and activism are enough to round out an eventful year for a 75-year-old, think again. Carroll has also decided to go back to school. Last November, she enrolled in Spalding University’s MFA program in order to fulfill her lifelong dream of writing creative non-fiction. Carroll proves to us it is never too late take a leap — or run a marathon, or go back to school, or write a book! Carroll’s undergraduate degree is in English and biology, so a passion for writing and research is in her blood. However, her 30-year career in speech and language pathology left little time to cultivate her creative side. “I’ve written off-and-on. I grew up writing letters — I was a big letter writer — but once in a while, you get an idea that you can’t get out of your mind. Around 20 years ago, I hiked 1,100 miles of the Appalachian Trail with my husband, Harland. I wanted to write a book about that experience,” Carroll says. This dream propelled Carroll to pursue her MFA and hopefully check writing that book off her to-do list. This lifetime distance runner likes the discipline and structure of Spalding’s MFA program. Packets are sent every three weeks with mentor texts to analyze and strict quotas for writing. The program’s rigor reminds her of training for a marathon — she puts in around five hours of writing every day — and she says she has benefited most from the relationship with her writing coach. “The key to the program is having the mentorship. The constant contact and feedback keeps me disciplined and motivated to write. I will have my book of short stories finished in about a year.”

“I wanted to write a book...” – Carroll Grossman

evin Knoll, 63, may have four years until retirement, but he has a head-start on turning a lifelong passion of owning an art gallery into a reality. His secret to proving it is never too late to fulfill a dream? It’s better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission. In January 2018, Kevin was presented with an opportunity: The previous owners of Copper Moon Gallery in New Albany were looking to sell, and Kevin along with his business partner Eli Ivy could turn their passion of – Kevin Knoll reselling original, eclectic art at affordable prices into an actual business. For years, Kevin had been intrigued by the unique and original art pieces he had seen at estate sales and thrift stores. He was no stranger to this world — Kevin (a revenue cycle director for two area hospitals by trade) had once attended auctioneering school at the bequest of his father. The thrill of the hunt was in the family DNA, the business was an easy turn-key operation, and he had an art collector’s eye. Kevin signed on the dotted line. The only thing he failed to do was tell his wife of more than 30 years. “It sounds terrible, I know, and she’s supportive now...well, mostly. But it was my life ambition, and I was able to fulfill it before retirement — to sort of test the waters — so I decided to discuss the idea with her one week after the acquisition. It all went very fast, and I was afraid that if I told her, she might talk me out of it, and I would have let an opportunity pass me by,” Kevin says, with some compunction in his voice. Now, one year later, Kevin and his partner are running the successful resale art gallery. The walls are filled with original art that Kevin and Eli have acquired through consignment, estate sales, trips to Goodwill, and thrifting. Kevin scours resale venues in four states (Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, and Tennessee) in order to display for customers the affordable original and eclectic pieces, that range in price from $5 to $1,800. “Copper Moon Gallery really is something — you have to see it. Most people say it takes two to three times to take it all in when you go. People are amazed at Eli’s precision, with his artistic display. I’ve had to learn a lot about art, and it has been a blast. It’s a true diamond in the rough.”

“...It was my

life ambition, and I was

able to fulfill it before

retirement.”

HOSPARUS HEALTH CAREGIVER SUPPORTS AT-HOME PATIENTS “To be a caregiver, you have to treat people how you want to be treated. At the end of the day, we’re all someone’s patient.” — NICOLETTE GREENE, CERTIFIED HOSPICE/PALLIATIVE CARE NURSING ASSISTANT, HOSPARUS HEALTH By Carrie Vittitoe | Photo by Patti Hartog

C

aregiving requires that an individual have an abundance of soft skills, not the least of which is an ability to adapt to new situations. Hosparus Health staff meet and care for people at various stages of life who have vastly different needs and desires. Meeting those needs is no small matter. Whether patients have dementia, ALS, or terminal cancer, all want to feel empowered and have a high quality of life, regardless how long it lasts. What responsibilities do you have? My responsibilities are to meet the daily needs of the unable, such as bathing, dressing, grooming, and oral care. I mainly go into people’s homes, but I am in some of the Hosparus facilities depending on my caseload. What is the best thing about caregiving? The best thing is knowing that I can make a difference in someone’s else’s life. I believe that we all are designed for a special purpose, and mine happens to be caring for people. I see it as being a superhero; I enjoy what I do, and I do it with a passion and a smile. What do you find most challenging? I go into homes, and I know I’m focused on the patient, but adapting to new environments is a challenge. I’m not just comforting the patient but the family members as well. Sometimes they hurt the most just knowing that their loved one is going through this. All patients’ needs are different, so I have to deal with everyone accordingly.

Hosparus Health Caregiver Nicolette Greene travels to patients’ homes and has to be ready to adapt her care to different environments and needs.

How do you support the family? Families are my eyes and ears because I’m going into a home where I don’t know anyone. I try to be a good listener. It lets them know that I’m truly attentive to the needs of their loved one. Sometimes if I can’t answer a question, I’ll reach out to a nurse through text, email, or a phone call. How do you take care of yourself? I am very organized and efficient. I utilize my time and get things done in a timely manner. I’m a single parent with one child, and there’s structure in my home. If I didn’t make structure, I wouldn’t have time for myself. At work, I try to think ahead to what a patient needs. Meditating is the best medicine. When I get off work, I get in the shower to wash off my worries. Today’s Transitions / Summer 2019

Caregiver Circle

Practical solutions for making caregiving easier.

Solutions for a Smelly Situation

Those with dementia often forget to attend to personal hygiene, which includes changing their clothes, says Kayla Cook, owner of Caring Excellence. Kayla suggests establishing a routine where the clothes are laid out as a reminder and are changed at the same time each day. If your loved one needs help keeping her clothes fresh, assist her with laundry and clothes preparation.

Help Along the Way

“Removing area rugs and other transitions is a way to help with safety issues. Providing good lighting and night lights help with navigating through the house, and providing grab bars and a place to sit in the shower can prevent accidents.” — Lucy Martin, horticultural therapist who works with seniors

ORDER BRINGS PEACE

It would be ideal if we could check in on our parents or friends daily to make sure that there’s a place for everything and everything has its place, but that isn’t always feasible due to our own busy agendas. Yet with a little forethought we can help them keep on schedule plus maintain a tidy home. • Calenders: Purchase a large calendar for them to write on. Include the type of appointment and time it will occur, and the doctor’s name. This gives your loved one the opportunity to feel in control of his schedule. • Labels: Put labels on cabinets, drawers, cupboards, closets, and pantry shelves. Keep the labels simple, such as “canned vegetables,”“forks and spoons,” or “pants and tops.” • Medication: If using a regular medical organizer doesn’t work for your loved one, then invest in an electronic medication dispenser to easily keep track of dosage and the time it needs to be taken. —Sheila Carter, RN, MSN, president, Heartsong Memory Care 56 Summer 2019 / TodaysTransitionsNow.com

Don’t Live Dangerously

Slips, trips, and falls can happen any time, so here are tips to keep loved ones safe. Caring Excellence Personalized Home Care Services provides complimentary in-home assessment by a registered nurse or social worker to evaluate the safety of a home along with the client’s physical needs.

“ We suggest moving

cords attached to electronics or lamps to prevent tripping, wearing non-slip shoes and slippers and relocating bedrooms to a lower floor to avoid falling down stairs.”

— Kayla Cook, owner of Caring Excellence

CAREGIVER SUPPORT GROUPS — PARKINSON’S

By Tiffany White

Meet-up Groups for Support and Encouragement

W

hether you are a new caregiver or a long-term care provider, coping with the stress of caregiving is an ongoing challenge. Caregivers need a comfortable space where they can talk about their experiences with others and find resources for their loved ones. The Parkinson’s Support Center of Kentuckiana offers a monthly support group that allows participants to exchange ideas with each other in an intimate setting. Rossan Smith, group leader, starts the session by asking participants to discuss their loved one’s health situation and progress. Participants talk about tips for overcoming the obstacles of caring for someone with Parkinson’s, legal issues, and medications, and they give recommendations on service providers. “People are afraid to come to a support group meeting, but we love them before they even get here. I encourage caregivers to take the leap and make a decision going forward to attend. It is a little scary to reach out, but don’t be afraid to reach out,” Rossan says. She adds, “If you can make a commitment to bring your person [to the meetings], it can make a huge difference in their care.” THE PARKINSON’S SUPPORT CENTER OF KENTUCKIANA WHEN First Tuesday of every month at 3pm WHERE 315 Town Park Drive, suite 100 GROUP SIZE 8-10 people CONTACT 502.254.3388

Janice Pope and Betty Quan, members of The Parkinson’s Support Center of Kentuckiana support group, offer a few tips for easing the strain of caregiving.

“IF YOUR LOVED ONE FALLS, AND YOUR NEIGHBOR IS UNAVAILABLE TO HELP, CALL YOUR LOCAL FIRE DEPARTMENT. THEY WILL COME TO YOUR HOUSE, SITUATE YOUR LOVED ONE AND CHECK TO SEE IF THEY’RE OK.” “IF MOBILITY IS AN ISSUE, USE A BEDSIDE COMMODE. YOU HAVE TO THINK AHEAD AND PLAN THE BEST WAY OF POSITIONING THINGS AND GET YOUR LOVED ONE TO WHERE SHE NEEDS TO BE WITHIN THE HOUSE.” “GO TO KATSNET.ORG/ PROJECTCARAT TO FIND DURABLE MEDICAL EQUIPMENT AND ASSISTIVE TECHNOLOGY YOU CAN BORROW.”

Now it’s time to rewire. Pick up a pen and pad. If your future self were speaking to your current self from her deathbed, what advice would she be giving you?

• What would she have you steer clear of? • What would she ask that you lean into? • Where should you spend your energy? • Where does she think you’re wasting your time?

Allow this dialogue to come through. Feel it and listen. What does your future self think about where you are now and how you’re spending your precious time? Promise your future self that you won’t waste your life. Promise that you’ll shift and change the way you roll so you can eradicate those painful regrets. Commit to making these changes and

decide what your logical step would be. Take this step today. From time to time, close your eyes and go back to this scene. Are you on track? Looking back from your deathbed, are you making changes and moving in the right direction? This exercise will help you stay on track and invest your time in the right people, activities, dreams, and possibilities.

STYLE

Lip Service

Gladys Barclay is wearing: Baecation by NYX Cosmetics mixed with Dusty Rose by e.l.f. Emily then added a touch of gloss on top.

Choosing the right lip color and knowing how to apply it can be an instant beauty game-changer — whether for better or worse.

E

mily Roberts, makeup artist at Strandz Salon & Threadz Boutique, provides some quick tips on enhancing the look of your lips.

Gladys is wearing: Transylvania by NYX Cosmetics .

Color Palate Stick with shades in red, pink, and nude tones. If you are going for a brighter lipstick, make sure the rest of your makeup is simple.

Moisturizing Moisturize your lips prior to applying lipstick. The moisturizer keeps the skin on your lips from peeling and helps maintain fullness.

Concealing After moisturizing your lips, apply concealer to your lips to seal in your lip color for the day. If there is any lipstick outside of the natural lip line, you can also use a concealer to clean it up.
