Do you have a spouse or loved one who has dementia? Hearing them say “I love you” or share a memory is something that every caregiver hopes for. And in those rare instances, it truly gives a renewed sense of purpose in life. Unfortunately, often, after being diagnosed with dementia, patients are prescribed drugs that, in some cases, cause depression or suppress who they are. But what if there was a way to reduce the medications and boost the mental well-being of the person with dementia and the spouse or caregiver? Interestingly enough, evidence shows that art plays a role in improving neural health. Art therapy is being taught as an alternative approach to dementia cases, providing an opportunity for patients to boost their mood and change their behavior without diminishing their quality of life. In this episode, Kirsten sits down with the incredible Angel Duncan. Angel is a mental health, art therapist, and research clinician specializing in therapeutic program developments for people with mental health, developmental, intellectual, cognitive, and memory disorders. Angel has an extensive background in counseling psychology, life development, and Alzheimer's disease phase 1b, 2, and 3 clinical research trials. She works globally with leading organizations on brain health initiatives and is a widely published author and speaker. During their discussion, Kirsten and Angel dive into the science behind art therapy, explaining how and why it works. Duncan also shares countless examples of patients who practice art therapy demonstrating the behavioral changes and how they reconnect with their spouses again or learn to engage with their caregivers. If dementia or mental health issues have impacted your life or the life of someone you know, this episode is for you. Tune in now for more on the benefits of art therapy and why Angel Duncan has spent her career advocating for this life-changing form of treatment. Big Three from Episode #074: Research shows that by engaging in art, which taps into certain regions of the brain, those with dementia are also getting neural activation and productivity. Ultimately, this leads to a shift in mood and behavior. Art Therapy is found to be helpful for all forms of dementia and, really, all types of mental health issues. Just because someone has dementia or another cognitive issue, doesn't mean their creativity goes away. Case studies and research demonstrate exactly how art therapy brings those with dementia out of their box, helping them reconnect with the outside world. Time-stamped Show Notes: 3:08 Long-term memory is returning for dementia patients through the process of Art Therapy. Listen now to hear Angel Duncan share the benefits of staying artistically creative for those suffering from neurological diseases. 5:43 Studies prove that art truly does work for people who have dementia. Start listening now for more on how art is helping neurological disease. 8:05 Relationships between caregivers, whether family or professional, and dementia-infected patients are becoming nurtured with empathy because of art therapy. 10:13 More often than not, psychotropic drugs are the go-to fix for dementia patients, causing diminished behavior. Angel answers how art could be used as an alternative to psychotropic drugs. 14:21 Angel Duncan has advocated for art therapy for almost 20 years. Listen to her journey and the life-changing work that has come from working with like-minded physicians. 17:43 Press play here to learn what different creative mediums are included in art therapy treatments. 21:11 Ask Kirsten Segment: Kirsten answers an email from Maria in Danville looking for advice on how to encourage her mother, who has dementia, to do an estate plan. If you have a question that you'd like to have answered by Kirsten, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. 23:56 Listen to how Angel helped co-create Art in Mind for dementia patients at the Yale Art Gallery. 28:08 Angel Duncan's Art Therapy Workshop is not just for dementia patients but also for spouses and caregivers.

http://patreon.com/winecellarmedia.com http://paypal.me/PhoenixAndWilliam Many Katy 3rd-5th graders were looking forward to meeting with author and illustrator Jerry Craft via Zoom. That meeting was canceled after a group of Katy parents raised concerns over the books referencing critical race theory. Craft is the winner of the 2020 Newberry Medal, the Coretta Scott King Author Award, and the Kirkus Prize for his graphic novel, “New Kid” and its sequel “Class Act.” Katy mom Bonnie Anderson received the flyer from her twin third grader's school, like many Katy parents did. “I review all of their instructional material whether it's a math worksheet or something like this,” says Bonnie Anderson, who previously ran for a Katy ISD Board of Trustee position. Anderson read Jerry Craft's books and grew concerned over how racism was presented in them and believes they push a critical race theory curriculum.

Vallabh Bhanshali is a visionary, a businessman, a devoted Vipassana meditator and a philanthropist. He co-founded ENAM securities, a highly reputed investment banking and investment group. ENAM has played a critical role in the growth story of multiple Indian corporations which went on to become the crown jewels of Indian economy -- such as Infosys, Reliance, Sterlite, Zee, Inox, Jindal, Thermax, etc. For his unique ability to solve complex problems, he came to be known as “investment banker of the first and the last resort”. For Vallabh-bhai, however, the real jewel was never his wealth or even his fame, but it was his search for the “truth” within. At 19, he chanced upon Acharya Vinoba Bhave’s Talks on Gita, and in his own words “half-way through the book, my life was completely changed.” He decided to live by a clear set of principles: Be passionate about what you do, embrace change and stand firm when the going gets tough. “I was practicing as an accountant and I realized that I may be academically brilliant, but my heart was not in it. So, I just walked out of my practice not knowing what I was going to do next.” Illustrating his dedication to stand firm and show up for a client even in troubled times, Bhanshali recalls the IPO of Air Deccan, India’s first low-cost airline. “Captain Gopinath, the founder of the new airlines, appointed five bankers to raise capital in order to make Air Deccan fly. Three of them scooted when they realized that things were not as solid as they appeared. The other two couldn’t help because they had invested in the company. But I said, ‘Captain, I will hold your hand. I am not going to leave you’. Had I also left, the airline would have stopped in the next seven days.” In the world of finance which is often associated with greed and selfishness, Mr. Bhanshali is a beacon of integrity who leads with values, clarity, modesty and sincere concern for the wellbeing of others. But how did a “shy and diffident kid” – that’s how he describes himself as a child – become this immensely successful and highly renowned entrepreneur who constantly strives to make this world a better place? Gladly, Mr. Bhanshali is excited to share his ‘secret sauce’: Inner Transformation. His 30 year long spiritual journey took him to many shores, from Eastern Philosophy to Western Philosophy. Another pivotal point in his search was when he found Vipassana Meditation. In 1989, at the age of 37, he attended his first course and ever since it has been “one blissful journey”. Vipassana, which means to see things as they really are, is one of India's most ancient techniques of meditation. It was rediscovered by the Buddha more than 2500 years ago. Vipassana is a way of self-transformation through self-observation. It focuses on the deep interconnection between mind and body, which can be experienced by disciplined attention to your own breath. Once the transformation is complete, you are liberated from mental impurity, resulting in a balanced mind full of love and compassion. Mr. Bhanshali sees meditation as an evolutionary process for mankind. “Having explored the external world and reaching its threshold, people are looking for greater peace, greater meaning, greater understanding.” Through ardently practicing Vipassana for many years, he became deeply transformed. He sees his body and his consciousness as part of a bigger system and feels aligned with the universe. “Once you are aligned, all the happiness just flows. You don’t worry too much, you just do what you think is right. Life becomes so easy, it’s wonderful.” Strongly committed to support the Vipassana movement, he has not only encouraged his family, friends and colleagues to meditate regularly but he is also Trustee and former Chairman of the Global Vipassana Foundation. He was a Trustee of the Bombay Stock Exchange and has served on several policy making & advisory committees of the Government and other regulatory bodies. He is also the founder Director of FLAME University – India’s innovative Liberal Arts University. He is the founder and chief mentor of Desh Apnayen Sahayog Foundation which is focused on instilling a sense of active citizenship amongst school and college students. The Foundation has also launched TRUTHtalks, an innovative initiative to inspire people to raise the Truth Quotient in their lives and make our society more happy, trustworthy and productive. Join us in conversation with this inspiring visionary, truth-seeker and changemaker!

In the second of our fabulous four-part series on Viewing Rural Health, Education, and Business Through an Equity Lens. produced in collaboration with and supported by Grantmakers in Health, Michelle talks with Heather Dimeris. the Director for the Office for the Advancement of Telehealth (OAT), in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and a Commander in the United States Public Health Service (USPHS); Marilyn Werber Serafini, director of the Health Project at the Bipartisan Policy Center and an adjunct professor at Johns Hopkins University; Mei Wa Kwong Executive Director for the Center for Connected Health Policy (CCHP), the federally designated National Telehealth Policy Resource Center; and Walter Panzirer, a Trustee at the Helmsley Charitable Trust and grandson of Leona Helmsley. During the pandemic, Dimeris notes, telehealth expanded exponentially in utilization. In 2020, health centers saw telehealth visits increase to more than 28 million, equating to a nearly 6,000% increase — with more than 5.7 million of these additional telehealth visits occurring in health centers serving rural communities This increase in telehealth services was possible because of the temporary flexibilities with telehealth reimbursement during the pandemic. She also discussed the many ways that HRSA is seeking to address equity issues in rural areas in the further expansion of telehealth services, including a focus on tele-emergency care last year and on direct-to-consumer care this year, in 2021. In addition, just last month, HRSA announced funding more than $19 million in key telehealth investments in rural and underserved communities. (Check out telehealth.hhs.gov for more information about telehealth and broadband resources for both patients and providers.) BPC recently conducted a national survey about lessons learned about telehealth use during the pandemic, Serafini notes, which found that about one in seven people (14%) who used telehealth said they would have sought care in an emergency department or urgent care if telehealth was not available, and that more than half of those people had their primary health issue resolved. The survey also found that consumers are likely to use telehealth in the future as it has served as a valuable tool for accessing routine and preventive care during the pandemic, she adds Kwong says that the pandemic broadened awareness of telehealth and its breadth of utilization, but adds that while telehealth is a terrific tool for providing these virtual services, it is important to note that many rural residents do not have the capability to access broadband. Panzirer describes how the Helmsley Foundation is funding needed health projects to address equity access in the rural upper Midwest.

Humble people doing great things is always inspirational. Prepare yourself to be inspired today by listening to our conversation with Walter Panzirer, Trustee of the Helmsley Charitable Trust. Having lived and worked in rural America, Walter immediately knew where he could make a difference and improve lives when he found out he had been named as a Trustee. “We were given a blank slate to see how we can improve lives around the world.” ~Walter Panzirer Walter Panzirer, is a grandson of Leona Helmsley. Raised in California, he adopted South Dakota as his home. Having worked as a first responder in both states, Walter witnessed personally the significant disparities in quality health care available close to home – disparities that demanded attention. Serving as a paramedic, firefighter, and police officer also made him acutely aware of the range of situations encountered by these professionals – from cardiac and stroke events, to individuals facing a mental health crisis. Upon the death of his grandmother, Walter was to his great surprise named a Trustee of the Helmsley Charitable Trust. He realized the opportunity for investing in better healthcare for Americans in rural communities as well as for supporting communities across rural Africa to build resilience. A passionate advocate for telehealth, Walter is committed to shortening the distance between a medical emergency and life-saving treatment, including outfitting first responders with modern equipment for managing emergencies. His curiosity, coupled with a get-it-done acumen, means that he's always looking for healthcare leapfrog opportunities that can be readily implemented. Walter studied business and history at Black Hills State University, and pursued pastoral studies at MidAmerica Nazarene University. An inductee to American Telehealth Association's College of Fellows as well the South Dakota Hall of Fame, Walter has served on a number of nonprofit and educational boards. He, his wife, and their family own and operate a hunting lodge in rural South Dakota.

Being named a trustee is an honor, but it comes with a lot of responsibility. Legal work has to be done, and if you're not familiar, the process can seem more like a burden. The tasks on hand aren't necessarily rocket science, but there are a few things that we see clients tend to miss. In a new episode of Absolute Trust Talk Live, Kirsten is joined by fellow Absolute Trust Counsel attorney Madison Gunn for another installment of Trustee Do's and Don'ts. Kirsten and Madison will be walking through a handful of very serious mistakes that trustees and executors typically make, which can have consequences. These items include: Why surviving spouses still need to complete legal work even though they take over as trustee Official notifications that are often missed New laws that impact real estate inheritance And more! Whether you've just stepped into your role as trustee or are planning for the future, this is an important episode that everyone should listen to, so find a quiet spot because it's time to press play.
On today's show I'm joined by the woman with potentially the new Blunt Dissection record (Sorry Sheilah) for the number of letters after a name, Dr. Robin Downing, DVM, DAAPM, DACVSMR, CVPP, CCRP, CVA, MS in Clinical Bioethics. Robin, who will be familiar to many of you, graduated from Loyola University of Chicago, (where she obtained a degree in English) in 1981 and later from the University of Illinois: College of Veterinary Medicine in 1986. Growing up, Dr. Robin had a natural rapport with animals, thanks to her Grandad; and was later pushed towards pursuing her career in veterinary medicine by her partner and now wife. Utilising her degree in English, Robin wrote a weekly column in The Denver Post, as well as multiple magazine articles, short stories, and two books. Meanwhile, using her veterinary degree to transform Windsor Veterinary Clinic into a Practice of Excellence and create The Downing Center for Animal Pain Management. Alongside, this Robin serves as a Trustee for the Morris Animal Foundation and is an affiliate faculty member at the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine. It is no wonder that in 2001, she was presented the prestigious Excellence in Veterinary Healthcare Award by the World Small Animal Veterinary Association in Vancouver, and the winner of the 2020 Bustad Companion Animal Veterinarian of the Year Award. Now, just before we jump into the episode, a quick word from today's show sponsor which today is the Thrive community. If you are struggling with managing time, feeling like an imposter or burnout then you need to make a change.

Now back to the show... This episode is both a heartwarming and heart-wrenching story of Robin's life, (she now holds a second record for the first guest to make me cry) as she recalls her struggles of being both gay and a woman in the 1980s veterinary industry, how her dog stopped her from taking her own life, discusses how every vet should use a bioethical framework, and outlines her hopes to influence human medicine. Expect to laugh, cry, and be truly amazed by the remarkable Dr. Robin Downing.

Rick is a recognized leader in the aftermarket and has a critical eye for what it takes to drive value. He is the lead Schwartz Advisors partner in support of projects with private equity firms, boards of directors and management teams. Rick is a Trustee of the University of the Aftermarket Foundation and a member of the Auto Care Association Board of Directors. He is a recipient of the prestigious Northwood University Automotive Aftermarket Management Education Award. Prior to starting Schwartz Advisors, Rick held various senior level positions at Nestle, Macy's and The Upper Deck Company. Rick received an MBA from the University of Southern California Marshall School of Business and a BA in International Relations from USC. Key Talking Points What is going on in overall M&A – not just the aftermarket- Many of the investment bankers are reporting record deal flow. A few key factors driving the abundance of M&A deals- catch up to deals that were put on hold in 2020. Excess “dry powder” (cash)- financial buyers (private equity firms & family offices) had an abundance of capital ready to deploy last year. Potential tax changes- the change in political administrations in the U.S. has caused concern among business owners that the capital gains tax will increase substantially upon exit. Low-interest rates- easier for buyers to finance acquisitions The aftermarket has slow steady growth- making it appealing to private equity Business owner- opportunity to cash out and next owner could do a lot to recruit, market, and grow. Why are some family-owned businesses selling? Timing – it is time to exit, (not related to the economy), competition, diversify personal investments and net worth, concern about changes in the tax code How long will the current M&A activity keep up? Looks like M&A activity will remain very active through the end of this year and into early 2022, perhaps longer. Big changes in tax laws could slow down M&A, but will Congress pass big changes? What is driving M&A in the service sector, from a buyer's perspective? What are buyers looking for? Growth beyond simple organic growth (i.e., growth beyond same-store sales growth). Acquire businesses before competitors. Buy distribution. No matter who is selling what preparation is necessary? Even if you are not thinking about selling, be prepared: Documentation in order: 3 years financials, 5 years is better, copies of all contracts/leases. Have your estate plan in order. Hire advisors who can help- hire a lawyer who knows how to do M&A – might not be your regular business lawyer (and don't bring in a lawyer who might be experienced in other areas but not M&A).

A Chapter 13 requires you to pay ALL of extra money to the Trustee every month! You are prohibited from moving, buying a new car or taking a vacation during a pending Chapter 13! Your creditors have to approve the Chapter 13! The Trustee will take all your stuff when you file Chapter 13! Yes, these are all myths and untrue when you file Chapter 13. This week's episode came about from a consultation with a prospective client who was so scared of filing Chapter 13 because of all of the misinformation on the internet. Once I dispelled those myths, we were able to craft a plan that allowed her to repay a portion of her debt, get a fresh start, keep some of her luxury items (like jet skis) and save a little bit of money each month! What other rumors or myths are there around Chapter 13? This week, we discuss 13 of them (including some of the ones mentioned above). Please remember to refer an attorney or title company to our sponsor, Sam Cohen at Attorneys First Insurance.

Today, I'm extremely excited to have Gavin Timms and Dustin Kircher onto the show to talk about a new program, REI Deal Closers.Gavin and Dustin have been working on this program for six or seven weeks now, and they're really excited to reveal it to you all today. Dustin has been doing real estate since he was in college, when he started working with student parent investors.This is a great strategy to use near college campuses. The pitch is simple: “Instead of having your kid live in the dorms, buy a house. Your kid lives there for free, and you make money renting out the other two or three rooms.” Using this strategy, Dustin was able to make a lot of deals while still taking classes. After that, he got into rehabbing and flipping. He made his first solo deal when he was twenty, and he's been hooked ever since.Dustin has also had a lot of success with trustee sales. But he also learned the hard way that it's important to have boots on the ground to check out a property before bidding. One time, he and a partner bought a property at an auction that seemed too good to be true. Turns out it was: there was no house on the lot! It had burned down in a fire. Soon after that, he got into the virtual markets, which brings us to the new program REIdealclosers.com.Join Gavin and Dusting there, and they'll partner with you and help you turn leads into cash. They want to take the leads that you consider lost or dead and do the work to bring them to close. When you join REIdealclosers.com, you'll fill out a simple form, and then they'll reach out to you and start working your leads ourselves. Partner with them and make some money together!What's Inside:—Strategies for working with student-parent investors.—Trustee sales and auctions.—Focus on one thing at a time, not the big shiny object deals.—The importance of networking and accountability partners.
