Empowering Family Caregivers

CareDiary.com is thrilled to announce that Margery Pabst, a leading voice in the field of eldercare, will host a new monthly segment on our BlogTalkRadio Show. “Caregiver and Physician Conversations” will provide a forum for caregivers and physicians to discuss the challenging situations that confront patients and their families, providing a model for family and professional caregivers to discuss critical issues, family stress points, and options for providing the best care to patients, especially when a family member is in a care facility such as a hospital or nursing home.

Ms. Pabst has a long-standing relationship with eCareDiary, writing as a guest expert on our blog. She is an author, facilitator and national speaker on caregiving, life transitions, and human potential. She is the co-author of “Enrich Your Caregiving Journey,” a book selected by Today’s Caregiver Magazine for the 2010 Caregiver Friendly Award. Ms. Pabst speaks at national conferences, including The Eden Alternative, Hospice, Parish Nurses and AARP and writes for several websites. Her work has expanded to collaborating with physicians on identifying patient/caregiver emotional needs and values, a critical part of the healing process. In her work she explores the potential for development and empowerment as we age and care for others.

The first show will feature Dr. John Guarneri, the System Medical Staff Leader at Florida Hospital overseeing 2,200 physicians at 7 campuses. Dr. Guarneri established the physicians driven Department of Healthcare and Spirituality at Florida Hospital in 2008. Dr. Guarneri has been in private practice in obstetrics and gynecology in Florida for over 20 years, and is at the forefront of including a patient’s spirituality in their healthcare and decision-making. He was inspired by a national study showing that 80% of hospital patients wanted spirituality addressed and less than 1% of physicians do so.
