Yes, it's possible to have a kid and a life. A life beyond babies, boys, and ballgames. A life that includes your hopes, dreams, and passions. It's normal (and healthy) for your career, marriage, and friendships to shift and evolve when you become a parent. But you don't have to give your all to parenting. It's okay (and healthy!) to reserve some time and energy for yourself. "As my son got older, all of my activities centered around what he did," says Ericka Souter, a journalist and author of How to Have a Kid and a Life: A Survival Guide. "I realized that I was drowning in kid activities and I was unhappy about that. I felt like I needed to do something for myself." That urge led her to interview other moms and begin writing her book. Reporting, researching, traveling and talking to others helped Erika feel whole again. Of course, it's not easy to make time for yourself amidst the demands of family life. So, you'll have to let go of things that don't serve you. "You have to give yourself permission to let go of people and activities that don't make you feel good," Ericka says.

While yes, we are entering a new year, you're still you. Let's start with loving yourself first.  You'll learn: You don't have to hustle for your self worth.  Why you should do things for the sheer love of it.  Advocating for self-care and self-love does not exclude other health related goals.  What if instead of the new year over exercising and over-dieting, you just love yourself crazy fiercely just as you are?

Again, very rarely do I ever bring back guests onto the show but you all loved Reese Piper back in Season 3 when she spoke abut autism and sex work that I had to bring her on for round 2! As a former stripper, Reese brings to the table a plethora of experience to share with us. The focal point of this episode would centre around her passion for advocating for strippers' labour rights. After experience raids in the strip clubs in the USA and witnessing so many of her peers face and succumb to exploitation tactics of owners and poor management, she got curious about the very little we may or may not know about our labour rights as independent contractors. Tired of hearing of fellow dancers get attacked, stalked and even murdered, Reese brought it upon herself to help educate her dancer colleagues and because this is such an important topic to talk about, I had have her back on the show to give us a lesson in labour rights 101. twitter.com/reese__p https://www.reesepiper.com Don't forget to LIKE, RATE, SHARE, REVIEW and SUBSCRIBE! @strippedbysia @siasteph twitter.com/strippedbysia www.stephsia.com

From Rehab to Home (Tips for Coming Home)

All Home Care Matters

Today, we are going to be talking about transitioning from a short-term rehab facility back to your home. We will be discussing discharge plans, communication strategies, home preparations, and most importantly, advocacy. Now let's move on to the rest of the show.   Rehab facilities are somewhat the norm when it comes to transitioning from hospital to home. If your loved one finds themselves in the hospital, for a scheduled surgery, an unexpected illness, or even a fall, they may be moved to a rehab facility before they are able to come home. Last year, over 530,000 people were treated in inpatient rehab facilities. According to Wauconda Care, a rehabilitation center has the goal of getting patients rehabilitated to a point where they can live and function on their own, so these facilities offer short-term care focusing on equipping patients to get back to their life at home.   Many families are nervous about transitioning from rehab back to home. Kevin Smith, President, and COO of Best of Care, Inc. gives us an example of a family experiencing the transition from rehab to home. He says that your 88-year-old mother suffers a stroke in the home she and your dad have shared for 40 years.   You rush to the hospital. Mom appears frail. Her speech is slurred. She is having a tough time moving her arms. Yet, she seems to be in good spirits. You're thankful dad called 911, that the ambulance arrived quickly, and that they caught and treated the stroke early.   But you're more than anxious about what comes next. The hospital's care manager wants to discharge mom to a rehabilitation facility in three days. From there, she'll go back home to dad… who has also become increasingly feeble.   What was a normal part of mom's day – bathing, cleaning, cooking, doing errands, moving around the home, walking the dog – is now impossible. You know that for mom and dad to remain in their home and age in place, major changes will have to be made. But where to begin?   This scenario plays out thousands of times a week in communities across the country. Having a care plan prior to this experience can help ease anxieties and make the process easier. If you have not yet made a care plan with your aging loved ones, we urge you to make one. For help with creating your care plan, visit our website or listen to our episode, “What is a Care Plan?” on YouTube, or wherever you get your podcasts.   Back to the question at hand… where to begin? Really, the answer to this question is to begin before you start. When your loved one first enters the rehab facility, AARP says you should ask to speak with a hospital discharge planner or social worker for help planning your loved one's next steps, care, transportation to their next place, insurance coverage, and payment plans.   Next Step in Care recommends discussing the following items with the discharge planner or social worker as soon as you have the chance. With the social worker, you should discuss how much time you can devote to being a family caregiver, whether you will provide all or some of the needed care, whether you can continue to work at your job, or if you will need to take time off, whether you have any health problems or other limitations, such as not being able to lift heavy weights, whether you have other commitments, such as caring for young children, and any and all other questions and concerns you may have about being a family caregiver.   According to LeadingAge, during this time, you should also work with the rehab staff and request a home visit from the physical or occupational therapist so that they can assess the living environment and make recommendations.   Erin Wuerz, a physical therapist and rehab manager with Kindred Healthcare says that “like anything else in life, the key to success is planning ahead. Discharge planning should start upon admission, and it should be an ongoing dialogue between the family and the rehab team during the length of the stay.”   Plan ahead as much as you can. This is also why having a care plan is so important. A care plan takes away the guesswork and lets you and your loved one focus on their recovery. If your loved one is going to need additional care once they are discharged from the rehab facility, now is the time to look into care providers, as well.   Communication is key throughout your loved one's stay in a rehab facility. Ask about your loved one's progress daily. When tracking their progress, make sure you talk to the staff, as well as your loved one, but also be aware that your loved one may not accurately describe their progress to you. Your loved one may not be lying to you, but they most likely want to be discharged and go home and believe they are strong enough when in reality, they are not.   On the opposite side of this, Rehab Select tells us that transitioning home after a stay in a short-term rehab facility can be difficult. Recovery from a serious illness, injury, surgery, or stroke can be a long process, and the thought of going back home before they feel confident about fully managing on their own can be intimidating for your loved one and they may not believe they are ready to leave the rehab facility.   If your loved one is nervous about this transition, talk with your discharge planner or social worker about ways you can help your loved one feel more comfortable about their situation. You should also reassure your loved one that you will be there for them throughout this process, and so will their friends and family. They have a support system to cheer them on.   LeadingAge says that you and your loved one should expect things to not return to normal once they leave the rehab facility. Unrealistic expectations about being able to return to life as normal can lead to disappointment and frustration. Recovery can take a while, and in some cases such as a stroke, you may need to make modifications around the house or get extra assistance from caregivers in order to safely return home.   Recognizing that these adjustments will ultimately result in a safer and more comfortable living environment may relieve some of the stress associated with the transition.   Once your loved one is nearing their discharge date, it is time to reevaluate the discharge plan you created when they were first admitted to the facility. Now, with the help of the rehab's discharge planner or social worker and the staff, you will need to prepare for what type of discharge your loved one will have. According to Next Step in Care, your loved one may be discharged to their home, with no needed services, to their home, with help needed from a family caregiver, or to their home, with help needed from a professional home care agency. The rehab team may also recommend your loved one receive long-term care, such as the care they would receive in a nursing home or assisted living facility.   Next Step in Care also recommends getting to know your loved one's discharge team. Their team includes a doctor, who authorizes the rehab discharge. A nurse, oftentimes this is the head nurse of your loved one's unit, who will coordinate any education regarding medications and other nursing issues. A social worker that coordinates the discharge, making sure that everything happens when it should. They also take care of and educate you on the many details about the facility's discharge process. A physical or occupational therapist is responsible for evaluating your loved one's progress in accordance with both professional standards and insurance requirements, as well as providing the therapy your loved one needs to regain their strength. The last member of your care team is you, the family caregiver. You likely are the one who knows your family member best and will be their number one supporter and advocate.   When considering any transition, it's important to be an advocate for your loved one, and for yourself. If you are not yet ready for your loved one to come home, speak up. Needing more time to make the home accessible and safe for your loved one is something you should discuss with the discharge team and you can come up with a solution together.   There is also the possibility that the rehab facility decides to discharge your loved one before you may believe that they are ready to come home. According to Next Step in Care, sometimes the rehab program makes a discharge plan you do not want, agree with, or feel is safe. You have the right to appeal this decision and ask for a review. By law, the rehab program must let you know how to appeal and explain what will happen. Make sure the rehab program provides you with contact information for the local Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) that reviews such appeals. Appeals often only take a day or two. If the appeal is denied, then insurance will not pay for those additional days and your loved one will have to leave the facility immediately.   If you do have to appeal a discharge decision and are looking for additional support, reach out to your local senior center and elder affairs department. Both will be able to give you resources and information that can help you during the appeal process and after, whatever the decision may be. The rehab facility can also be a good resource to use, for the appeal process and for the transition home. LeadingAge says that your rehab facility can put you in touch with other community resources. Local communities have a wealth of services such as delivering meals, light housekeeping, transportation, and counseling, all of which will provide a helping hand to you and your loved one while still enabling independence.   Advocating for your loved one and yourself is such an important task that we want to make sure you are as prepared for as you can be. AARP recommends they you insist on the three “I's”: information, inclusion, and instruction.   Our first I, Information: Obtain printed copies of all pertinent information, including your loved ones' current medications list and prescriptions, any changes to their medications, and a summary of their visit that includes their diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, surgeries, limitations, and any other pertinent information, rehabilitation recommendations, and discharge orders. You should also make note of any scheduled follow-up appointments and share this information with those who will care for your loved ones next, such as their doctors, facilities, home health aides, and professional caregivers.   Our second I, Inclusion: Proactively make certain that you are included in care planning discussions and are informed of changes and decisions. If you have health care power of attorney for your loved ones, you can make decisions for them if need be and you need to know what is happening so that you can make an informed choice.   And Lastly, Instruction: Nearly half of family caregivers are expected to perform follow-up medical and nursing tasks, so be sure to ask for detailed instructions and training, which is required by law in some states.   Now, let's say you have received the discharge decision and you agree with it. What do you now? First, make sure your loved one's living space is ready for them. If they live on their own, do you need to temporarily move in with them to help take care of them? You will need to ensure you have what you need at their home, a bed, clothes, food.   You will also need to make sure the living space is accessible and safe for them to get around in. For more information on making sure your home is safe and accessible for your loved one, listen to our Quick Tips episode on Aging in Place on our Official YouTube channel, our website, or wherever you get your podcasts.   Any equipment and supplies your loved one will need once they return home should already be there waiting for them before they even leave the rehab facility. You do not want to have to rush to find last-minute specialty equipment that your loved one needs, which is why it is important to obtain the necessary supplies and equipment ahead of time.   Some common supplies and equipment your loved one may need after being discharged from the rehab facility are hospital beds, recliner chairs, bedside commodes, oxygen tanks and supplies, incontinence products, skincare items, such as water-free shampoo and soap. The rehab facility may have suggestions on where you can get some of these items, so make sure you talk to them about any necessary supplies and equipment your loved one may need.   Supplies and equipment can be expensive and add up quickly. Check with your loved one's insurance to see what supplies and equipment they will pay for. You can also find organizations in your area that can donate supplies or help you cover some of the costs in some way. Not sure who to reach out to? Start with your discharge team. They are there to make sure your loved one gets back to their best self, and getting the supplies they need will help your loved one.   When your loved one comes home, Next Step In Care says that you will likely do certain tasks as part of giving care. It is important that you know how to do these safely. Try to learn as much as you can while your family member is still in rehab. You can do this by watching the physical and occupational therapy staff as they do these tasks and asking them to watch as you try these tasks yourself.   Sometimes, the rehab staff will not teach these tasks until the day of discharge. This may not be a good time to learn if you feel rushed or overwhelmed. Learn what you can, and ask who to call if you have questions at home.   You might be told to call someone from the rehab program, a home care nurse, or other health care professional.   Speak up if you are afraid of doing certain tasks (such as wound care) or cannot help with personal hygiene (like helping your family member take a shower or go to the bathroom). Some caregivers are okay with changing their family member's diapers while others feel very uncomfortable about doing this task.   Think about your own feelings as well as your family member's. The rehab team needs to know what tasks you can and cannot do so they can plan for any needed help.   So far, we've talked about what you should do to prepare for the day your loved one leaves the rehab facility. Now let's move on to what you should expect the day of discharge and beyond.   When the discharge day comes, you may need to pay for a service to transport your loved one home, depending on their needs. If they are unable to walk or sit, you may need to find an accessible cab, or something similar. The discharge team can help you pick the right transportation service for your loved one. Health Sense says that you will also need to have a plan for community transport such as wheelchair-accessible cabs, cars, or ambulettes (which are a specially equipped van for transporting disabled or convalescent passengers in nonemergency circumstances) for follow-up appointments with doctors in the community.   When your loved one comes home, they may have to eat a special diet and take medications. Talk to your loved one's care team to make sure you understand your loved one's nutritional needs and restrictions, as well as their medication schedule. Your loved one's doctor should give you a list of medications, how long they need to take them, how often they need to take them, and how they should take them. You and your loved one should also be made aware of any side effects that their medications can cause and be on the lookout for them. If your loved one experiences any side effects while taking medications, call their doctor immediately.   Medications can also be expensive. Make sure to check with your loved one's insurance to see what they will cover. If your loved one needs help covering the cost of their medications, again, reach out to the rehab facility and community resources for help. Some medications also have to be picked up at a hospital pharmacy instead of your normal pharmacy. If your loved one has a medication like this, make a plan of how you will get this medication and how often you have to pick it up. Some pharmacies offer delivery, as well, especially during the covid pandemic. Ask your local pharmacy and hospital pharmacy if delivery is an option for you. Getting your medications delivered can help you during this time, as it will be one less thing you will need to do.   LeadingAge says that you need to recognize that it's ok to have help and to ask for help. Some people are embarrassed about needing assistance after transitioning home, and some family caregivers think they can take care of their loved ones all on their own. It's important to be realistic about the level of care that will be required, and it's ok to have extra help. Getting help isn't a sign of weakness, but one of strength and care.   Amy Goyer, a family caregiver, recognized she needed help and asked for it while caring for her dad. She says that when her dad was discharged from the hospital with a feeding tube, she was given just a few minutes of explanation on how to deal with it. It was complicated, and they were back in the hospital multiple times when it clogged. She received help from the home health nurses, but you can bet the next time they had a hospitalization that she advocated more strongly for the information she needed to do her job as a caregiver.   At first, Amy didn't ask for help and tried to do things on her own. Once she asked for help, she was able to better take care of her dad and gain the skills and confidence she needed to be a better caregiver.   Lastly, according to AARP, you need to be realistic about the future. Sometimes rehab facilities are unrealistic about what setting is best for our loved ones, or how much a family can handle in terms of future care. It's up to you to stay rooted in reality. Ask a lot of questions, observe loved ones in therapy sessions, monitor their medications and assess their capabilities, and weigh it all along with their needs, wishes, and quality of life. You should also assess the home situation and potential facilities realistically. If you can't provide all the direct care yourself, you are not a failure. You are still doing your job as a caregiver when you coordinate the care. Your loved one has a discharge team in the rehab facility, and they will still need a team once they leave. Line up the support you'll need from care managers, care providers, family members, and friends and build your team.   Throughout the transition, make it a high priority to take care of yourself. As we have said an ample number of times and will continue saying, you cannot provide the best care if you are not your best self. While some transitions go more smoothly than others, no transition is perfect. Just do your best with the information you can gather. You can always make new decisions as the situation changes. Plan early, plan often, and be there for your loved one, because at the end of the day, that's the most important job you have.     We want to say thank you for joining us here at All Home Care Matters, All Home Care Matters is here for you and to help families as they navigate these long-term care issues.

When Tahu Kukutai's father went to school, he wasn't allowed to speak his native language. If he did, he would be hit by his teachers. While the situation for the Maori people in Aotearoa (the Maori name for New Zealand) has improved somewhat since then, Tahu has dedicated her career to advocating for the rights of Indigenous peoples to preserve their native language, identity, communities, and culture. In today's world, power over data is a central component of indigenous self-determination. Government agencies decide what data gets collected on whom and how it gets used, shared, and stored. There's a long history of data colonialism and state surveillance of indigenous communities designed for government priorities. Indigenous data sovereignty provides a framework to determine what data are collected and how it's used, the ethical framework and governance, and the intended beneficiaries. Indigenous peoples have a different perspective on data. Most western frameworks about data protection, rights, and privacy are focused on the individual. The indigenous concept of data, data sovereignty and data rights are instead focused on the collective. Indigenous data are any information that impacts both the individual and the collective such as natural resources, nations, peoples, traditional and cultural information, oral histories, and ancestral knowledge. Tahu is advocating for indigenous data sovereignty as a founding member of the Māori Data Sovereignty Network Te Mana Raraunga and the Global Indigenous Data Alliance (GIDA) that works to control the collection, ownership, and application of data about their people, territories, and natural resources.While there's a growing willingness from government agencies to engage in conversations around Maori data sovereignty, she says there is a lot of work ahead. Private sector big data organizations also have a major role to play, and she hopes they will be more proactive about doing this work internally to be relevant to the growing Maori population. Maori currently make up 16-18% of the Aotearoa population, compared to roughly 5% indigenous populations in the US, Canada, and Australia. Tahu says that advocating for any issue fundamental to the wellbeing of the Maori, whether it's language revitalization, land rights, or water rights, has always been driven by the Maori. “I have huge optimism that change can occur, but it will only ever be driven by ourselves. That doesn't mean that others don't have a role to play and there are some very positive steps,” she says. “There's incredible resilience, fortitude, and tenacity in indigenous communities around the world who have refused to let go of their identity. The challenge is to move from surviving to thriving.”RELATED LINKSConnect with Tahu on LinkedIN and TwitterFind out more about National Institute of Demographic and Economic Analysis (NIDEA)Find out more about University of Waikato Connect with Margot Gerritsen on Twitter (@margootjeg) and LinkedInFind out more about Margot on her Stanford Profile

Jack Kammer says boys are affected by sexism too.  Boys and girls who engage in the same exact behavior may be treated very differently. And yet, when we fail to acknowledge that fact, we contribute to the gaslighting of our boys. Because the truth is that males and females both experience advantages AND disadvantages related to their sex and gender. But while a lot of of societal effort has been directed toward decreasing gender-related disadvantages that hold back females, little attention has been directed toward eliminating barriers commonly encountered by boys and men. "For the past 60 years, we've done a pretty good job of making sure that girls have a lot of fluidity in the choices that they can make and they options they can pursue," says Kammer, author of Heroes of the Blue Sky Rebellion: How You and Other Young Men Can Claim All the Happiness in the World. "We don't do that so much for boys." In fact, he says, when it comes to love, relationships, nurturing, and expression, today's prevailing narrative posits female superiority and male inferiority. As a result, too many boys and men (and girls & women) believe that males can't multi-task or competently care for young children. "It was a very bad thing for our nation to waste all of the talent that women had to be good business people, lawyers, and scientists. It's really a bad thing for us to waste all of the love and nurturance, the desire to be fully human and helpful, that men feel," Kammer says. In this episode, Jen, Janet & Jack discuss: Helping boys grapple with sexism Advocating for boys in the classroom and on the playground Recess and its importance for boys (& girls) Fluidity for boys How gender stereotypes harm boys & men Shame's impact on boys Empowering boys to delay sexual activity Encouraging father involvement Links we mentioned (or should have) in this episode: jackkammer.com -- Jack's website (includes links to his male-friendly podcasts) Heroes of the Blue Sky Rebellion: How You and Other Young Men Can Claim All the Happiness in the World -- Jack's book Boy Moms as Boy Advocates -- ON BOYS episode featuring Gemma Gaudette (mentioned at 6:10) Need help with your boys?

The Conversation Factory book club is an experiment I've been running for a few months now. I'm experimenting with deeper conversations and collaborations with the subscribers of the Conversation Factory Insiders group as well as working to go deeper with some of the ideas that have been shared on the Podcast. This is a round-table conversation with Adam Kahane, author of Facilitating Breakthrough, with a few special guests from the Conversation Factory Insiders group. If you haven't listened to the interview I did with Adam last season OR read the book, I think you can still enjoy the conversation. Adam does show some slides during the conversation, so head over to YouTube if you want to follow along.  A note on process: In this session, you'll hear the panel share what parts of the book were most impactful to them, and then Adam responds to their comments with some deeper thoughts. The wisdom Adam drops here is absolutely worth the price of admission! Check out the show notes on theconversationfactory.com for links to Adam's book, our podcast conversation last year, and his work as a Director at Reos Partners. If you're unfamiliar with Adam and Reos, Reos is an international social enterprise that helps people move forward together on their most important and intractable issues. Adam has over 30 years of experience facilitating breakthroughs at the highest levels in government and society. His own breakthrough facilitation moment came with an invitation to host the Mont Fleur Scenario Planning Exercises he facilitated in 1990s South Africa at the dawn of that country's transition towards democracy and the twilight of apartheid.  He's gone on to facilitate conversations about ending civil wars, transforming the food system, and pretty much everything else in between. Adam is amazingly honest and open about how he looks back at his past books and sees them as not just incomplete, but sometimes dangerously incomplete. So, read Power and Love, Collaborating with the Enemy, Transformative Scenario Planning, and Solving Tough Problems (all amazing books) with a grain of salt...or just get Facilitating Breakthrough! It's all about 5 key pairs of polarities in transformational, collaborative work and it's an eye-opener. As you'll hear, many of the panel members had an eye-opening moment, as I did, around the idea of Vertical and Horizontal facilitation. Vertical and Horizontal Facilitation In the opening quote, Adam points out that Vertical and Horizontal facilitation are two poles of a polarity. And like all good polarities, the key is to hold them lightly and dance between them mindfully. Vertical Facilitation is focused on singularity: We have the right answer, and a right answer can be found and advocated for. Horizontal Facilitation is focused on multiplicity: We each have our own answer, our own view, and there is no right path. As Adam says...the “bad guy” isn't one or the other pole of the polarity...it's choosing one over the other. I also deeply loved that Adam makes clear that the work of the Facilitator mirrors the work of the group. Adam points out (on p.70 of his book) that: A facilitator can only help participants if they, like participants, move back and forth between bringing their experience and also listening and adjusting to the needs of the situation Again: it's not about choosing verticality (finding a single answer) or horizontality (exploring multiplicity)...it's about the opening and emergence created when we shift from one side of the polarity to the other. Can we move between Inquiring (the move to the horizontal) and Advocating (which shifts to the vertical)? Complex situations rarely have solutions that can readily and easily be identified and advocated for. So, finding a path through truly complex challenges requires careful and artful shifting between these two modes of Vertical and Horizontal. I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did, and that you check out Adam's recent book, Facilitating Breakthrough.

If you've ever thought that you'd like to be on TV as a contributing expert - or if you think you're not qualified (you are!) - you'll get so much out of this episode. We're continuing our series “The Medium is the Message” and in this episode we're focusing on TV as a platform that can quickly propel your visibility and credibility. Since 2005, I've appeared (too many times to count) on Orlando-area news stations as a Democratic political analyst. Being on TV can turn you into a mini-celebrity, as people who see you on the news start recognizing you at the store.  (True story: During the 2016 election cycle, I was on the news frequently. I was at the store one day in yoga clothes, hair in a ponytail, and no makeup and the clerk said to me, slowly and with a hint of uncertainty, “Did I see you on TV?” Why, yes, you did, and I looked a lot more put together then!) Being on TV gives you built-in authority and credibility because so few people get the opportunity.  TV is one of the last gatekeepers (along with traditional book publishing) where the audience assumes that if they're seeing you on their television, you've been selected and vetted as an expert. Being on TV has lots of advantages for giving you this credibility. It can also have a downside, especially as a woman and even more so as a woman of color (never read the comments). My guest today is Dr. Christina Madison, the Founder and CEO of The Public Health Pharmacist, PLLC, a public health consulting firm. Christina has been featured in over 200+ on-air TV appearances since January 2020 related to the pandemic and public health, so when I met Christina recently on a consult call and learned about her background, I knew I had to have her on the podcast.  Christina and I talk about: The benefits of being on TV The challenges we've both faced as women having a public presence and voice Tips for working with TV stations so they keep calling you back How Christina got her first TV appearance and how she prepared What TV as a medium wants (visuals, soundbites, mass market information) How to pitch your topic to local news to make it newsworthy The importance of representation of women and women of color in the media {There is one very appropriate f-bomb in this episode, hence the "Explicit" rating. It's worth it!}   About My Guest: Dr. Christina Madison is the Founder and CEO of The Public Health Pharmacist, PLLC, a public health consulting firm. She is an Associate Professor of Pharmacy Practice with Roseman University of Health Sciences and works as a clinical pharmacist specializing in public health with a focus on infectious communicable diseases.
