BY ALICE HORNBAKER The Cincinnati Enquirer Eugene C. Bianchi of Emory University considers himself a maker of positive "myths" about aging. The country is in dire need of such myths, said Bianchi, the keynote speaker for the seventh Aging Institute at the College of Mount St. Joseph. In his talk at 9 a.m. Friday, Bianchi will share stories that reinforce the idea that growing older can be a rewarding experience. "I am a mythmaker in the positive sense. We need to reassess the whole process of aging to develop new stories about courage, compassion and creativity in later life," Bianchi said. The institute opens with Bian-chi's speech, "A Spirituality for Holistic Aging." Bianchi, a profes- have bought into the "mindless concept of aging" that has been perpetuated by some experts in the field. "The concept that anyone past age 60 is fragile and in poor health is nonsense," he said. "We need new, realistic role models to show aging's positive side." The institute includes a series of workshops in the field of aging for both professionals and non-professionals. The college will offer continuing education and academic credits for the workshops. Topics include: "Person-to-Per-son Reaching Out in Your Congregation," "Confronting Your Own Aging," "Communicating with the Confused Elderly" and "Creative Solitude."

It invites the public to an open house at the site from 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday. ( The public can view the $30,000 renovation that converted a rectory of St. Luke Episcopal Church on Fernbank and Kirkwood Lane into Rose Hill, a five-bedroom home for independent living. People 65 and older will live together in a family-like environment with maintenance and meals provided for $650 a month, said Mari Messer, spokeswoman for the Episcopal Retirement Homes Inc. Geri Hempel of Sharonville, executive director of Enriched Living Home Care, an outreach organization of the Episcopal Retirement Homes Inc., is the sponsor of Rose Hill, its first shared home. There are four bedrooms on the second floor and one bedroom on the first floor, "for a resident who might not be able to negotiate stairs," Hempel said. "We also have a chair lift, donated to us for this project." Hempel said, "It provides a wonderful opportunity for us to expand our services to those who wish to remain independent and active, yet avoid the isolation of living alone. We offer meals in the monthly package fee." She said she based food needs on her parents' needs. "I noticed they and other older adults usually eat a light breakfast of cereal or toast, a soup or sand Area senior centers Resource center adds dates for popular animal lectures Search for rectory use Hempel said her organization, decided to venture into shared ' home living after she saw a news-1 paper article on St. Luke's vacant j rectory. "The story had a picture of the rectory, and the article invited interested parties to propose how to use the rectory in a church-oriented way. I contacted them and after many meetings and negotiations, we decided to make it into a shared home. We have a long-term lease at $1 a year for the facility," she said. Services at the shared home include housecleaning of all common areas, maintenance, yard care and laundry. Residents who want their personal rooms cleaned will be charged a fee. There will be a live-in manager, Hempel said. the plan was created to operate a shared home at the lowest possible cost to residents, Messer said. Donations for the project were received from The Robert H. Re- alkirt, William H. Albers and De-i luxe foundations. j A matching grant program was; initiated by Seven Hills Savings and Loan for individual gifts. Oth-i ers donated home furnishings and kitchen items. ! "Twelve of the Enriched Living staff members and spouses gave their time to complete interior painting and refurbishing," Messer said. Susan Alexander, activities director at the home.

The journey from youth to old age is now fraught with misconceptions and negative images, Bianchi said.
