July 201 Orangevale Sun Page 9Is Caregiving inYour Future?Visit First 5 Sacramento’s dental website at:www.First5SacDental.orgFeaturing children and parent dentalresources, videos and great oral health tips.By Sal Arrigo, Jr.As we look around and see manypeople living longer, do you everwonder if it will ever fall to you tobecome a caregiver? If your parents,or perhaps your spouse, wereto be diagnosed with Alzheimer’sdisease, what would you do if youhad to become a caregiver, evenpart-time?Where do you start? How muchtime are you able to devote to caregivingduties? In reality, caregivingis a 24/7 responsibility; you don’teven need to be in the presence ofthe person you are assisting. Whenyou are responsible for the healthand well being of another, you thinkabout caregiving when you’re shopping,driving your car, and plantingyour garden. Caregiving is likelyto take a toll on your physical andmental health.So, how do you cope? It’s notalways easy to do, but you must askfor help. Enlist siblings, friends orneighbors to assist whenever possible.Caregivers often overlookthe very real need to take a breakfrom their responsibilities, andFab 40’sburn out is all too common. As acaregiver, if you are overly tired orstressed, you are of no help to anyone.Seek out caregiving resourcesfrom the Alzheimer’s Associationof Sacramento, your medical doctor,or use the internet to researchrespected sites such as the MayoClinic or the National Institute onAging.One way that caregivers caneliminate some of the stress theymay encounter is by making asimple “business plan.” SinceAlzheimer’s is progressive, a caregivermust anticipate future needsby understanding the stages of thedisease and making plans as tohow to best assist their loved one asthey move toward that next phase.“Knowledge is power” as the sayinggoes, but using that knowledge toprepare yourself for what the futureholds can also bring peace of mind.None of this is easy-- for you or theperson for whom you are caring—but it is prudent.A couple of additional points toconsider, as a caregiver:• If you’re not the executor ofthe estate, engage in conversationwith the person who is.You may need to know whatprovisions have been made forfinancing long-term care.• If you need an attorney, get anElder Law attorney who specializesin these sensitive matters.This is especially important ifthere is no will or trust alreadyin place.• Gather the paperwork on finalarrangement issues (if anyexist).• Remember; you are not anisland! There are supportgroups and organizations thatare ready and willing to assistyou and your loved one. Don’thesitate to reach out for help.Even if you don’t anticipate beinga caregiver someday, I encourageyou to come to the Alzheimer’sAwareness Day at East LawnMemorial Park on Saturday, July9. The event is free, and there willbe information, resources, and apanel of speakers on hand with indepthknowledge of Alzheimer’sdisease. The dedication of the oneof-a-kind“Alzheimer’s Wall ofRemembrance” will also take placethat day. If you are a caregiver, thisevent may prove to be especiallyinformative for you, so please considerjoining us. The event time is 9a.m. until noon. No need to register,just show up and we’ll also provideyou with a light breakfast and lunch.If you’d like more information aboutthe Alzheimer’s Awareness day,please call (916) 316-6347.Sal Arrigo, Jr. is the chair ofthe “Fab 40’s 5K run/walk and anadjunct instructor in the GerontologyDepartment at American RiverCollege.

July 201 Orangevale Sun Page 12A Film Review by Tim RileyCARS 2 (Rated G))This column has now hit a trifectawith its third consecutive review of afamily film. You can’t get more kidfriendly than a G-rated Pixar animationfilm.The good news is that “Cars 2” hasmoved the car racing franchise into awhole new international territory thatis all the better for its global cast.“Cars 2” opens by playing homageto the James Bond franchise that easilyrecalls several key elements in the bestof the Sean Connery works. For one,the coolest car is the Aston Martin thatbelongs to a suave British secret agent.Naturally, Michael Caine has theperfect quality to his voice that embodiesthe ultimate cool and suave Britishspy. His sporty British car is loadedwith James Bond-type gadgets.Caine’s Finn McMissile is teamedwith the fetching Holley Shiftwell(voice of Emily Mortimer), a rookiefield agent. Together, they launch anassault on a deep sea oil rig run by anefarious gang.Back in the States, noted race carLightning McQueen (Owen Wilson)returns to Radiator Springs for rest andrelaxation with his best buddy, the towtruck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy).Meanwhile, billionaire MilesAxlerod (Eddie Izzard), eager to promotehis alternative fuel called Allinol,is staging a series of World Grand Prixraces in Europe and Asia.After being taunted by arrogantFormula champion FrancescoBernoulli (John Turturro), McQueenand Mater, along with their hometownpit crew, head off to Tokyo for the inauguralGrand Prix race.In a series of contests to occur as wellRileyReviewsSPY GENRE ISULTRA-COOL IN PIXAR’SDELIGHTFUL “CARS 2”in Italy, France and England, McQueenis eager to prove that he is worthy tocompete with the cocky, flamboyantand self-absorbed Francesco.As the racing gets underway, Mater,who sounds like a backwoods hillbillyfrom Arkansas, is mistaken byMcMissile for an undercover Americanagent on a similar mission to take downa villainous East German scientist.To make matters worse, the attractiveHolley Shiftwell chats up Mater forhis supposed prowess in internationalespionage, while the clueless tow truckimagines that they might actually goout on a dinner date.Easily distracted, Mater finds himselftorn between assisting his good palMcQueen in the high-profile race andfalling in with the top-secret missionorchestrated by the smooth, debonairFinn McMissile.Mater’s charm, which does weara little thin after too many cornponewitticisms, anchors much of the actionaround his unwitting ability to chugalong on his hapless path to ultimatevindication.Much of the fast-paced action isfilled with a global conspiracy to sabotagethe race, which has as much todo with political intrigue as garneringmarket share in a new fuel source.The ongoing intrigue plays well forthe adult audience, while taking nothingaway from the enjoyment of “Cars2” at a level appealing to grade schoolkids.The colorful settings of the Tokyostreets, the coastal beauty of the ItalianRiviera, the cosmopolitan charm ofParis and the elegance of London makefor very great visuals.“Cars 2” proves to be a worthy additionto the pantheon of Pixar animatedfilms, enjoyable for its deft combinationof comedy and internationalintrigue.by David DicksteinFamily FilmsHarry Potter and the DeathlyHallows: Part 2Opens July 15, rated PG-13harrypotter.comThe eighth and final chapterof the wildly successful filmseries ends with Harry and LordVoldemort whipping out theirwands one last time for themother of all showdowns. Only aclueless Muggle doesn’t alreadyknow the ending, but if youmatch the description, do yourselfand the wizardry world a favorand start from the beginning.Winnie the PoohOpens July 15, rated Gdisney.go.com/poohWalt Disney returns to theHundred Acre Wood for a nowrare2-D animated feature.Inspired by five stories fromA.A. Milne’s books about a“bear of very little brain” and hisfriends, the main storyline hasthe classic characters on a questto save Christopher Robin, whoFilms and DVDsfor the Whole Familyhas supposedly been capturedby a creature named “Backson”– the result of a misread note.The SmurfsOpens July 29, rated Gsmurfhappens.comBefore Blue Man Group and“Avatar,” the Smurfs were thecoolest blue-hued characters.The Belgian import becamean instant hit with Americanyoungsters and not-so-youngsterswith an ‘80s cartoon series. Thelive action and animated featureadaptation, in 3-D, has the littlegnome-like creatures beingchased from their village by theSmurf-eating Gargamel. They gothrough a portal and wind up inNew York’s Central Park, wherebad guys only want to rob you.Family DVDsFrogs & Toads: Max’s MagicalJourney (ages 3-6, releasedJuly 5, rated G): When 6-yearoldMax goes searching for frogeggs for his older brother, heand a friend embark on a songfilledadventure that takes themthrough fields, farms and a forest.This Dutch-made film, dubbedin English, is geared towardpre-schoolers. It’s a refreshingdelight, devoid of the eyepoppingdevices that Americanstudios feel they need to keepyoung audiences interested.Just a nice tale of adventure andfriendship helped along by musicand nature friends. Grade: AThe Smurfs: A Magical SmurfAdventure (ages 3-6, releasedJuly 19, not rated): Timed withthe feature film release is the DVDrelease of 10 episodes from the‘80s Saturday morning cartoonseries.
