Join Tina Cannarella Rampori, as she speaks about her challenging and hearth-felt experiences with dementia and elder care, speaking as the primary caregiver to her grandmother (who has passed away from dementia). She offers expert advice and practical tips on how to cope with caregiving a dementia patient. She is interviewed by Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, author of numerous articles and books, 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.DaveNass.com

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE:
Dementia is a loss of brain function that occurs with certain diseases. Alzheimer’s disease is one form of dementia that gradually gets worse over time. It affects memory, thinking, and behavior. Memory impairment, as well as problems with language, decision-making ability, judgment, and personality, are necessary features for the diagnosis. According to the Alzheimer's Association, More than 5 million Americans are living with the disease....every 67 seconds someone in the United States develops Alzheimer's and Alzheimer's disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s or Dementia. It gets worse and worse until the patient ultimately dies from the gradual shut down of the brain and all bodily functions. With this being the case, would you want for your loved ones suffering with dementia to advance in harmony with their condition, their relationships and their family? Can a spiritual look at dementia assist in this harmonious advance?
