by assembling and promoting reputable

businesses serving that population. This

signified the beginning of the Chamber’s

there’s still no place like

though life couldn’t get

any better. One community

In a community that

prides itself on hospitality,

it’s no surprise that

improving social spaces

is a top priority. Scheduled

to be finished this

November, Phase I of the

remodel will focus on the

residents will be able to

enjoy signature cocktails

while mingling with family

and friends.

“Social connection is a

key part of what makes our

community so special,”

said Vi at The Glen Sales

Director Sian Moynihan.

“Creating spaces where

everyone can gather, relax

and enjoy each other’s

company is so important.”

Phase I will also introduce

a theater where residents

will be invited to attend

movie nights, lectures

and other special events —

another opportunity for the

community’s social calendar

to shine.

spaces to foster a welcoming

Caring for the caregiver

While we were on-site

at the Elderwerks Education

and Resource Fair:

Planning To and Through

Retirement for Seniors

and Older Adults, a visitor

posed the following

question: How do we help

a caregiver/spouse who is

taking care of a loved one

with dementia?

Oftentimes we see caregivers

who try to become silent

superheroes. They sacrifice

sleep, proper nutrition

and exercise. Many who

are still working or raising

families admit their minds

aren’t engaged. Careers suffer,

and life on the home

front becomes strained. The

bottom line is a caregiver

who tries operating in an

“always on” mode becomes

sick or so severely run down

they can no longer deliver

the necessary support to

their loved one.

Although some people

look at reaching out for

help as a sign of weakness

or “defeat,” seeking assistance

is a very practical

and responsible approach.

Over the years, I have spoken

with dozens of caregivers

we have helped, and a

common thread is surprise

at the vast amount of quality

resources available

and regret that they hadn’t

reached out for help earlier.

If you or someone you

care about is grappling with

life balance while meeting

the needs of a loved one or

friend, Elderwerks offers

a printed Senior Resource

Directory for Illinois,

which includes all local and

federal programming such

as transportation, nutritional

projects, social services,

charities, etc. You can also

view an electronic version

of the guide on our website.

Hiring a home care agency

proficient at working

with dementia patients is

the prescribed route. These

professionals can come in

for a few hours per day,

offering a breather, permitting

you to work, go shopping,

get some exercise or

even enjoy a day at the spa.

It’s also important to seek

out help, and accept help,

from family and friends

who can pitch in by performing

some household

responsiblities Supporting

a person with dementia is

a full-time job that requires

the labor and love of many.

Please don’t go it alone.

Ayres Estate Services right now

There’s never a dull moment

in our business. We

are brokers of services to

help clients disperse unwanted

furniture, housewares,

artwork, fine jewelry,

beloved antiques and

collections of all types!

One of the best ways we

can explain our day-to-day

activities is with case histories

that illustrate how

our resources are the key

to making good money

from sales of all types.

A friend called to say her

neighbors are thinking of

moving to the West Coast.

They lived in Oak Park

their entire married life

and have a full house, garage

and basement. When

we visited, the owner explained

they would probably

not move for a year,

and not everything would

be for sale immediately.

So we began by taking

photos of items they are

ready to sell. Then we sent

out the photos to buyers

we knew would be interested.

The owners’ in-laws

lived and worked for many

years in Korea, and some

of their things had the flavor

of that culture. Several

of our buyers are thrilled

to purchase items from unusual

and exotic cultures.

We called them and then

we sent the clients’ collections

to an auction house.

Several pieces of furniture

were moved to a consignment

store in their area.

A realtor called us several

months ago with a

minor emergency. Her

clients’ Victorian mansion

was about to be listed for

sale, and there were many

valuable collectibles that

needed to be removed for

the clean and uncluttered

look the realtor was asking

for. We sent copious

photos to our collectors,

designers and shops, set up

appointments, met buyers,

and within days, the house

was ready to view.

When the time comes,

we will again call in the

right buyers for everything

you don’t want to keep.

We’re hopeful our case

histories have given you a

good idea of the right time

to call us — almost anytime

you have a grouping

of items to sell!

No bones about it: Osteoporosis

isn’t just a women’s disease

How strong are your

bones? It’s likely you

don’t know unless you are

a woman over 50. In fact,

bone health is important

for everyone. Here are 5

myths about bone health

you need to know.

1. Men don’t have to


False. While women

may lose bone mass earlier

due to hormone changes

related to menopause, men

are absolutely at risk for

developing osteoporosis.

In fact, according to the

National Osteoporosis

Foundation, men over 50

are more likely to break a

bone due to osteoporosis

than get prostate cancer,

yet most men are unaware

New senior living care brand

enters the Highland Park market

On July 1, Frontier Management

LLC acquired

management of Highland

Park Memory Care,

rebranding the Memory

Care community as The

Auberge and bringing a

fresh look and new opportunities

to the seniors of

Highland Park.

“We are extremely excited

to welcome The Auberge

at Highland Park

into our family,” said Justin

Wray, vice president of

operations and marketing

at Frontier Management.

“We love having the opportunity

to serve new

groups of seniors and their

families. Highland Park

and the surrounding area

is a location we are eager

to be a part of and we

look forward to bringing

our philosophies and programs

to current and future

of their risk.

2. Osteoporosis is silent

Yes and no. Osteoporosis

is often referred to as

a “silent” disease. Bonedensity

declines after the

age of 30 with no symptoms

unless a fracture

occurs. If bone loss continues

to progress to osteoporosis,

bone fragility can

result in the onset of multiple

fractures, postural issues

and contraction of the

paravertebral muscles resulting

in muscle fatigue

and pain often reported in

the lower back.

3. Kids aren’t at risk

False. Thinking about a

child or adolescent’s skeletal

strength now could

protect them in the future.


A unique senior living


At The Auberge, residents

5 tips to improve your oral health

Just like that ache in your lower back

when you get off the couch or that strain

in your shoulder when you lift the grocery

bags, your teeth and gums can present

problems that may not have been there

when you were younger.

With advances in medicine, we live longer

and keep our teeth longer. This presents

a unique set of challenges for patients

and their dentists. Below are some issues

that you may face and recommended oral

care tips to help you maintain a healthy

mouth and smile.

1. Dry Mouth

Dry mouth, or xerostomia, is a common

problem I see in patients.

As we age, we frequently take multiple

medications to treat various health

problems. Decreased saliva flow can be

a side effect of more than 500 different

medications. Dry mouth can be managed

with over-the-counter sprays and mouthwashes,

plentiful water consumption,

sugar-free gum/lozenges, and potentially

modifying dosages or drugs that may

contribute to the decrease in saliva.

2. Cavities

Saliva plays an important role in protecting

our teeth and preventing decay,

which puts older patients with dry mouth

at an increased risk for developing cavities.

The decay process can be managed

and sometimes reversed through a process

called “remineralization therapy.”

This treatment uses products containing

fluoride to help put minerals back into

weakened enamel. With this and newer

less invasive treatments, we are often able

to provide a conservative alternative to

extensive and costly dental procedures.

3. Poor Breath

Bad breath, or halitosis, is a common

dental problem in patients of all ages. Primarily

caused by bacteria in the mouth

and on our tongues, we frequently work

with patients to find a simple, at-home

solution to this bothersome problem.


From Page 8

kidney stones and gastrointestinal

issues. Does

this mean eliminate calcium

completely? Not at

all. Calcium is important,

it’s just not a magic pill

for building bone density.

5. You can’t improve bone

density once it’s lost

False. You can strengthen

your skeletal system

and increase bone density.

The first line of defense is

exercise. While swimming

is excellent for your heart

and lungs, weight-bearing

and resistance exercise is

A tongue scraper is a great tool that

can be used to remove bacteria from our

tongue. Additionally, adding an alcoholfree

and fluoride-containing mouth rinse

to your daily regimen can help keep your

breath odor-free.

4. Preventative Care

We consistently recommend regular

preventative care to our patients. It

is better and easier to treat problems

while they are small, before they become

painful to both your wallet and mouth.

We see many of our older patients more

frequently in order to monitor the health

of their teeth and gums as well as detect

early breakdown of existing dental restorations.

Many patients with a history

of periodontal disease or gum problems

should ideally be seen every three to four

months for their preventative hygiene


5. Dental Implants

Our primary goal is to help our patients

achieve a lifetime of comfort and function

with their natural teeth.

Unfortunately, teeth sometimes need to

be removed due to fracture or decay. In

this case, our doctors can customize your

treatment to replace teeth with naturallooking

and functioning dental implants.

Whether you have one or multiple missing

teeth, or a loose or ill-fitting denture,

dental implants can be an excellent treatment

to help restore your smile. The key

to treating dental problems you may experience

is to be proactive and find a dental

practice that tailors treatment for you to

address your short-term concerns and the

long-term health of your natural teeth.

Maintaining your oral health makes it

easier to eat the food you enjoy while being

able to converse and smile without

being self-conscious.

A beautiful community with new friends awaits

Since opening in 2003, Chestnut

Square at The Glen has been one

of the North Shore’s most popular

choices for independent senior living.

The reasons are many, but to

fully understand what makes the

community so special, we think our

residents, families and staff give

the best perspective of all:

“Moving to Chestnut Square was

one of the best decisions my wife

and I ever made...our only regret

is that we didn’t do this sooner!

There’s always something new

and exciting happening and we’ve

never met a nicer group of people.

When my brother saw how happy

we were, he decided to make Chestnut

Square his new home also.”

-Don Klein

“I wanted to find a place where I

felt an instant connection with the

residents and the staff, and Chestnut

Square gave me a warm feeling

the moment I walked through

the door. I especially love all the

events...I’ve done more in eight

months than I have in the past eight


-Dee Knapik

“We wanted to find the best location,

lifestyle and value, and that’s

why we chose Chestnut Square.

Everyone we meet is friendly, the

meals have been excellent and

we’ve got the Glenview Senior

Center right across the street.”

-Clayton and Doris Welter

“I’ve worked at Chestnut Square

for over 10 years and the residents

have become a special part of my

family. Everybody is so nice...it’s

why I love my job!”

-Maria Latacz

“The residents are so welcoming...

they want you to feel part of their

community from day one. There

are so many activities and excursions

to choose from. Units are

well-maintained. There is formal

dining every night and brunch on

Sundays. My mom is safe, happy

and close to her family now. I have

Chestnut and the wonderful staff

there to thank for that.”

-Beth Huber

Located at 2601 Chestnut Ave. in

Glenview, Chestnut Square at The

Glen features spacious floor plans,

all-inclusive services and amenities,

a signature dining program,

diverse cultural and recreational

events, scheduled transportation,

weekly housekeeping and 24/7

concierge services. Homecare and

home health services are also available

on-site if ever needed.

Chestnut Square at The Glen is

also excited to announce, for a limited

time, attractive incentives on

their 100 percent-refundable entrance

fees. One and two-bedroom

apartments are currently available,

so there’s never been a better time

to lock in your rate and enjoy the

vibrant lifestyle at Chestnut Square.

Finding a new home for empty nesters

a prime option for worryfree,


living. No more home

time to devote to doing

what you love.

Avidor is an excellent

spot to host your monthly

ideal place to meet new

friends, forge relationships

is pet-friendly as well.

The North Shore is home

to many Baby Boomers

who are in, or nearing,

the empty-nester period of

their lives. This is a great

phase, but not necessarily

with respect to housing.

Empty nesters need and

want single-floor living in

a smaller home. If this is

you, what should you do?

Moving away, whether

downtown or somewhere

farther, is always a viable

option. The challenge arises

if you wish to stay in the

North Shore, where you

have gained friendships

and raised a family.

Current North Shore

housing stock offers limited

options for high-quality

single-level living. Evanston

and Highland Park

are both exceptions, when

modern mid-rise and highrise

living is desirable. But

these buildings can often

feel a little too modern or

sterile. Evanston also has

many very beautiful vintage

condominium buildings

with first-floor units

only half a flight from

street level. But living

there may also mean limited

or no building parking,

window air conditioners,

and possible restrictions

on in-unit laundry. On the

positive side, these much

less expensive vintage

condominiums are often

very charming and welllocated.

But, if neither

option seems desirable to

you, your best alternative

may be to build a home.

Building an affordable

new empty-nester home

gives you the ability to live

in a proper single-family

Amenities include unit

balconies, outdoor swimming

pool and hot tub, grill

station, fire pit and ample

green space for entertaining.

Indoor offerings include

a pet washroom,

movie room, nail and hair

salon, fitness club, yoga

studio, and game room.

To encourage residents

to maintain their active

lifestyles and promote

long-term health, there

will be a full-time resident

services director on staff

to coordinate programs

for residents. Have the life

you deserve. It’s time to

play, explore and live with

house. An empty-nester

home can be built to suit

your tastes and sensibilities,

not those of a developer.

antiques, art and other fine

took a lifetime to acquire.

Moreover, a manageable

not need to mean cramped
