HERBS FOR HEALTH MANAGEMENT

Herbs are a foundational root in medicine and health treatments, dating back thousands of years throughout every culture around the world. Modern Western herbalism comes from ancient Egypt. The Greeks developed a comprehensive philosophy of herbal medicine by 100 BCE and the Romans built upon it to create a variety of medical practices, some of which are still used today.

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE IMPACTS PSYCHOLOGICAL HARDINESS

Psychological hardiness is an individual’s resistance to stress, anxiety and depression. It includes the ability to withstand grief and accept the loss of loved ones. Alternative medicine is a more popular term for health and wellness therapies that have typically not been part of conventional Western medical approaches but are often used along with conventional medicinal protocols.  Coping and dealing with stress in a positive manner play a major role in maintaining the balance needed for health and well-being.

After touring a couple of senior living communities with Susan, the Pass family decided Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm would be the best fit for their mother and her needs. While on the tour at Legacy Reserve, Kevin asked the staff if they would be able to find a place for his mother and Lily, too, if he tracked the artwork down. The team at Legacy enthusiastically responded they would absolutely love it. Kevin found the owner and made arrangements to bring the horse to Legacy Reserve at Fritz Farm.


“Mrs. Pass was pleasantly surprised when she stepped off the elevator to find Lily comfortably situated in the front lobby of her new home,” said Jacqueline Kennedy with Legacy Reserve.


Taking the time to work with clients to not only find them a place to live but the right place to live is what Susan Neville and Silver Lexington are all about. “Lexington is so fortunate to have a number of excellent senior living communities and I do my very best to make sure my clients find a new home in the one that is just right for them,” said Susan.

LILY MONET - FINDING A NEW HOME

“When I initially meet with families, I use that time to discuss specific needs the client is looking for,” Susan said. “We discuss their concerns, their interests and their likes and dislikes, just to name a few. It was during this time with the Pass family that I learned about Mrs. Pass’s passion for art and discovered she was one of the artists who painted one of the horses during Horse Mania in 2010.”


Ann Pass owned an art studio in downtown Lexington for many years, and this is where she brought “Lily Monet” to life. Claude Monet was her favorite artist and studying his work led to her own Impressionist style of art. Ann visited Monet’s home in Giverny, France, and fell in love with the beautiful water lilies he had in a pond on his property. When she was asked to paint one of the horses, she decided to use the inspiration from her trip as an homage to her favorite painter.


Once Horse Mania ended, the horses were auctioned off, raising over $750,000 for the Lexington Arts Council. The horses traveled to various places around the United States. A gentleman from Ohio purchased Lily Monet, who was “pastured” at his farm in Cincinnati for the past 18 years. Ann thought she might never see her work again. Lily Monet was a special project for Ann. She left her mark on the underside of the horse by painting the names of her grandchildren there.

It can be a challenge when looking for a senior living community such as independent living, assisted living, personal care or memory care. Understanding these different levels of care and how each level of care is different as well as the various costs involved can be very overwhelming to family members.


That is why Lexington native Susan Neville, owner of Silver Lexington Senior Living Placement Service, started her business three years ago. Central Kentucky families needed someone like Susan – a knowledgeable, local, community-minded professional who can help families and seniors navigate and understand the options available to them and the process needed to make their very best decisions. That is exactly what Susan did when assisting the Ann Pass family.


“Everyone’s situations is different and there isn’t a textbook answer as to how moving a family member to a senior living community actually works,” said Susan.


Kevin Pass had reached out to Silver Lexington for guidance when looking for a new home for his mother. Because of his mother’s dementia and the disease’s progression, the family decided to look at options in a senior living community that would fit Ann’s current needs and those that might be expected in the future.
