Patty is a registered nurse and the CEO and Founder of North Star Elder Care, a division of MLHCC, Inc. She is certified in rehabilitation nursing, case management,  life care planning, and is an elder care specialist, and testifying expert. As a registered nurse with close to 25 years  experience  working in a variety of settings, both in and outside the hospital, she has seen what a difference the right team of professionals can make in caring for you or your loved ones. "When I was in nursing school, my father had a stroke and was paralyzed on his left side. In one day he went from this incredibly independent, strong man, to requiring help with almost everything. I remember us working closely with the rehabilitation team, both in and outside of the hospital setting, and watching my father work very hard to regain his independence. It forever changed the course of my nursing career. I was so grateful to the rehabilitation team for the quality care and hope they gave us and my father.  I knew then that I wanted to become a rehabilitation nurse."

Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, author, speaker, life coach, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene. His latest book that he is now working on is entitled: The Caregiver's Caregiver, A Guide to Avoiding Burnout. It is designed to teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones (due to an illness or disability) how to take care of themselves FIRST. If they don't learn this, they will likely suffer burnout and become as helpless as the person they are caring for. Tune in every Wednesday at noon, PST, (Re-Broadcast Saturdays at 3:30pm PST) for interviews with experts in the caregiving field, as they discuss topics of great interest to caregivers, which will help them avoid burnout. www.DaveTheCaregiversCaregiver.com
