Person helping another with activities of daily living
All Home Care Matters is honored to welcome back Christina Keys the Director of Community Growth at Caregiving.com to discuss the new partnership with All Home Care Matters to produce a new show once a month call "Real Talk with Real Caregivers" Family Caregivers have always struggled finding local resources, support and feeling isolated. As a family caregiver our circle of people who truly understand what we are walking through becomes very small once we become a caregiver. "Our whole life is affected, physically, financially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually when we are caring for a loved one. The goal of "Real Talk with Real Caregivers" is to help Family caregivers not feel so alone and help them redefine normal. How do we really walk through this journey? This show will be the type of support that is not only educational but healing for Caregivers everywhere.” - Christina Keys
All Home Care Matters is honored to welcome Mr. Steve Gurney as a guest to the show to discuss tips and guidance for when it is time to shop for senior living options.

All Home Care Matters was honored to welcome two remarkable guests, Peter Berry & Deb Blunt. They are cyclists, authors, and dementia advocates helping to raise awareness for dementia. Peter was diagnosed with early onset dementia eight years ago, when he was 50. Before his diagnosis, Peter ran a successful timber business. After a period of depression following his diagnosis, Peter made the decision to live well with the condition. He is very keen to help others understand his experience, both of the condition and the diagnosis process. When he's not delivering presentations, Peter spends his days cycling around the Suffolk countryside, being the embodiment of his own doctrine of living well with dementia. Deb is a retired social worker. She took early retirement and moved from London to Suffolk five years ago. The friendship with Peter has helped Deb to fulfil one of her main life ambitions: to be a published author. But this friendship has also taught Deb has to re-evaluate her own life and to try to live in the moment and to appreciate the joys that life has to offer. Peter and Deb have written two books: “Slow Puncture, Living Well with Dementia” and “Walk with Me: Musings Through the Dementia Fog”.
A third of caregivers die before the person they are caring for. Former Wisconsin Governor Marty Schreiber has made it his mission to help caregivers find the resources they need to provide the best care for loved ones but also to take care of themselves. He talks to Myles Dannhausen Jr. about his journey caring for his wife as she succumbed to Alzheimer's disease.
Host Betsy Allen talks with Bobbi Carducci, Certified Caregiving Consultant, author, educator, and caregiver advocate, about caring for Rodger, her father-in-law, who suffered from Lewy Body Dementia, COPD, and schizophrenia. It was a challenging, life-altering experience for Bobbi: navigating the healthcare system, weathering her own health issues, and dealing with the stress it put on her relationship with her husband. After Rodger passed away, Bobbi became an advocate for other caregivers—and she's got a lot of practical advice for the growing number of older adults who will either become caregivers or be cared for.

The mental load is the behind-the-scenes work that is necessary to manage our lives and properly care for others. Often times we hear about this in the context of moms who are typically the “default parent” but mental load can affect us all. This week, episode 156 of the Positively Living Podcast is about how to reduce mental load as a parent or caregiver.In this episode of the Positively Living Podcast, my guest Roxanne Ferber—who has been a stay-at-home mom, work from home mom, and now a work outside of the home mom—shares how motherhood and bearing the mental load is never easy. She also gives actionable steps to take right now to find what works best for you to manage your demands and the stress that comes with it. Roxanne and I cover the following topics:Defining “mental load” and what we mean when referring to the “default parent.”How the overwhelm of mental load can manifest itself physically in the body. A number of ways you can reduce your mental load. How communication is the biggest proponent in managing mental load (and delegating tasks). Finding a community in which you can ask for help and support others who need it as well. Mental load, when left untreated, can build up to overwhelm and burnout and manifest symptoms in your physical realm. Acknowledging it and asking for help is essential.Thank you for listening!

How do we approach a "deeply forgetful" loved one so as to notice and affirm their continuing self-identity? For three decades, Stephen G. Post has worked around the world encouraging caregivers to become more aware of--and find renewed hope in--surprising expressions of selfhood despite the challenges of cognitive decline. In Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People: How Caregivers Can Meet the Challenges of Alzheimer's Disease (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2022), Post offers new perspectives on the worth and dignity of people with Alzheimer's and related disorders despite the negative influence of "hypercognitive" values that place an ethically unacceptable emphasis on human dignity as based on linear rationality and strength of memory. This bias, Post argues, is responsible for the abusive exclusion of this population from our shared humanity. With vignettes and narratives, he argues for a deeper dignity grounded in consciousness, emotional presence, creativity, interdependence, music, and a self that is not "gone" but "differently abled." Post covers key practical topics such as: - understanding the experience of dementia - noticing subtle expressions of continuing selfhood, including "paradoxical lucidity" - perspectives on ethical quandaries from diagnosis to terminal care and everything in between, as gleaned from the voices of caregivers - how to communicate optimally and use language effectively - the value of art, poetry, symbols, personalized music, and nature in revealing self-identity - the value of trained "dementia companion" dogs At a time when medical advances to cure these conditions are still out of reach and the most recent drugs have shown limited effectiveness, Post argues that focusing discussion and resources on the relational dignity of these individuals and the respite needs of their caregivers is vital. Grounding ethics on the equal worth of all conscious human beings, he provides a cautionary perspective on preemptive assisted suicide based on cases that he has witnessed. He affirms vulnerability and interdependence as the core of the human condition and celebrates caregivers as advocates seeking social and economic justice in an American system where they and their loved ones receive only leftover scraps. Racially inclusive and grounded in diversity, Dignity for Deeply Forgetful People also includes a workshop appendix focused on communication and connection, "A Caregiver Resilience Program," by Rev. Dr. Jade C. Angelica. Stephen G. Post is the director of the Center for Medical Humanities, Compassionate Care, and Bioethics at the Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University.

https://302.buzz/PM-WhatAreYourThoughtsDo you have a picky eater in the house? Then this is the episode you've been waiting for. Dr. Lia Gaggino's guest this week is Dr. Natalie Prohaska where they'll discuss avoidant, restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), which was previously referred to as feeding disorder of children. They will break down the three different types of ARFID and discuss how they affect children's psychosocial and nutritional functioning. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect our daily lives, mental health concerns such as eating disorders have seen a resurgence. Whether it's a fear of choking or contamination, this episode will provide valuable insight on how your clinician properly diagnoses and treats ARFID in order to improve the overall health and well-being for the child.[00:33 -13:37] Understanding Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder (ARFID)ARFID is not related to body image distress, but rather caused by sensory sensitivity, lack of interest in eating, or fear of inversive eventsARFID can affect nutrition, weight, and psychosocial functioning, and can be seen in both children and adults ARFID is characterized by three types of symptoms: sensory sensitivity, lack of interest in eating, and fear of inversive events.ARFID can progress from one category to another and may require specific treatment for feeding-related anxiety or OCD.[13:38- 25:54] How to Manage Picky Eating in Children: Strategies and Tips Breaking down food into smaller portions and gradually adding ingredients can help make it more manageable for picky eaters.Children with oral aversions, such as those who were in the NICU and had tube feedings, may benefit from occupational therapy.Encouraging children to describe the appearance, texture, smell, and taste of food in non-judgmental language can reduce their disgust response. Using a five question approach, children can approach new foods more like a scientist and think objectively about what they are experiencing.[25:55 -37:14] Overcoming Fear of Food in Kids: The Step-by-Step ApproachAversive events such as choking on food can lead to a fear of eating, which can be treated similarly to OCD.Treatment involves creating a hierarchy of manageable steps in challenging fears, starting with softer or liquid foods. Parents play a crucial role in this treatment, as they need to provide education, empowerment, and motivation to their child.Children with intellectual disabilities or autism may require a different feeding program tailored to their unique needs.[37:15 - 44:41] Understanding ARFID: Diagnosis, Comorbidities, and Resources for FamiliesARFID is a distinct illness from anorexia, though picky eating can sometimes lead to anorexia later on.ARFID patients typically have a limited diet high in dairy and carbohydrates, while anorexia patients prefer produce and proteins.Comorbidities with ARFID include anxiety, ADHD, autism, and medical issues like reflux or celiac diseaseFamilies can find helpful information and support through resources like FEAST, AED, and the book "ARFID: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers.

Resilience, hope, and transformation. For almost a year, Natalie Elliott Handy's husband, Jason, had been experiencing swollen lymph nodes in his neck, and after numerous doctor visits and biopsies, he was diagnosed with Squamous Cell Carcinoma P16+. Natalie shares how the caregiving journey changed her relationship with her husband and how she transitioned from a wife to a caregiver. She learned that being a caregiver is not just about performing tasks, but rather comprised of almost 40 different roles. She shares how the journey also pushed her to reprioritize her life. We explore the importance of being present and an advocate during caregiving, including the need for continuity of care and updates to loved ones. We also discuss the often overlooked side effect of caregiving - how it changes relationships and leads to complicated emotions and grief. Natalie shares her experience of transitioning from being a wife to a caregiver and taking on different roles.

From enduring her husband's life-changing, horrific war injuries to becoming a National Advocate for wounded Veterans and their Caregivers, Sarah Verardo's relentless never quit attitude has driven her to the forefront of two separate organizations who see the needs of Veterans and Allies, which have given her the opportunity to steward resources and support where and when they are most crucially needed. Sarah's husband, Sgt. Michael Verardo was catastrophically wounded in Afghanistan in two separate IED attacks that took his left leg, much of his left arm, and left him with polytraumatic conditions that have required over one hundred surgeries and years of speech, visual, physical, and occupational therapies. Nevertheless, Sarah speaks with Marcus about the everyday challenges she and her daughters face in the care of her husband, her involvement as the CEO of The Independence Fund, and being at the forefront of Afghan Ally inclusion within the Veteran community. In August 2021, the collapse of Afghanistan led her and three others to co-found the direct-response rescue and aid organization - Save Our Allies, who evacuated more than 17,000 US citizens, SIV holders, and wartime Allies from the country and assisted in medical and humanitarian relief efforts in Ukraine. In this episode you will hear: • [Michael Verardo] was injured the first time. He was riding as a gunner and hit a roadside IED. He was ejected out. (12:54) • On his very first foot patrol back in - It was 14 days to the day of the first IED, there was an old Russian land mine that had been hooked up to 2 – 15gallon drums of homemade explosives, and it was game over. His left leg was immediately blown off. Most of his left arm was blown off. They actually ended up sewing it to his back on his medical flight. He burned over 30% of his body. He had damage to his airway, his eardrums were blown out. It was significant poly trauma. (13:29) • Marcus: “He got banged up and then you all got married?” (17:02) • Marcus: You know the odds of that happening? That's when you know you're not behind the wheel. (17:46) • That sense of patriotism calling – That's all he wanted to do. (18:02) • It's been horrific. More than my worst nightmare. (18:26) • He actually handed me a Bible before he handed me an engagement ring. (20:18) • He said holiness needs to be more important than happiness. (20:37) • His only prosthetic leg broke, and I duct taped it for 57 days while I waited for someone at the VA to sign a piece of paper. (33:18) • The Navy and the Navy hospital took care of him as if he was one of their own while we waited for VA to kick in. (24:23) • I think there needs to be permanent designations for certain conditions. (26:24) • It seems that some people – not all - at VA would rather fail by following the process, than succeed by deviating from it. (27:21) • Independence Fund started out in the halls of Water Reed, wanting to give independence back to those who sacrificed theirs for us. (34:39) • If someone did not care about Afghanistan at that time, it told me everything I needed to know about them. (41:47) • I think the White House wants us to move on from Afghanistan. They're not only not helping – I think they're actively in the way of groups that want to do good. (52:36) • Reach out to the wounded veterans in your community and help these families. (59:15)
There are two new books about the experience of caregiving: Who Cares: the hidden crisis of caregiving and how we solve it by Emily Kenway and Mothercare: on ambivalence and obligation by acclaimed American novelist, Lynne Tillman. Both Emily and Lynne cared for their mothers. There are differences in their stories, but also many shared experiences, experiences that apply to vast swathes of populations around the world who undertake unpaid caring for spouses, relative and friends. Lynne and Emily join Nuala in the studio. When Sheilagh and her husband offered to house a mother and her daughters fleeing from Ukraine little did they realise that the girls were musical prodigies and that their music would stop passers by in the street. Sheilagh and 17 year old Khrystyna join Nuala to tell their story. On Thursday the another series of Bridgerton will be available and focusses on Queen Charlotte. Described as a spin-off, it goes back in time to chronicle how the young queen at just seventeen finds herself married to the new King George III. Dr Olivette Oteli, research professor at SOAS explains who she was, what we know about her life and if there is any credibility to the longstanding speculation that she was the first woman of colour in the Royal family.
