This show is about women in business who love what they do and are doing what they love (as well as helping those that are longing to do so). It’s about reveling in our successes and learning from our failures. It’s also about sharing what we have to offer and compelling reasons why others want to promote and support us. And finally, it’s about what brings us all together—our passions, our values and our desires to make a difference. In other words . . . it’s all about YOU!
Alzheimer’s Disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. As a larger percentage of our population enters their golden years, it is becoming essential to understand how to care for people suffering from Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia.
Diane Bradshaw stood by her husband, Arnold Bradshaw, as he battled for five years with Alzheimer’s. During that time she kept a daily log of the care provided to him and the physical toll of the disease. Diane has turned that log into the new book, I Am Arnold.
In her book she describes the good and the bad sides of nursing care facilities.
Join us and speak with Diane about the joys and frustrations of caring for a loved one with dementia.

Have your Alzheimer's disease questions answered on-air by geriatric neuropsychiatrist and Alzheimer’s specialist, William A Van Horn, MD.
A MESSAGE FROM DR. VAN HORN Thank you for the opportunity to help you and your family.
As Medical Director of both an inpatient and outpatient Alzheimer's treatment program, I had the opportunity to work with hundreds of Alzheimer's patients and families.
Unwilling to accept the traditional medical position that little could be done to impact this debilitating disease, I spent the last ?ve years exploring and prescribing different medication protocols.
My efforts have been very successful. My patients are doing far better than the norm and are bene?ting in ways I did not realize were possible. My approach is unique and aggressive while also being safe and well within medical standards. It is exciting to see my Alzheimer's patients doing much better than expected at all stages of the disease. My desire is to share my treatment success with physicians and families.-William A. Van Horn, MD

Dementia is a term that is used to describe a collection of symptoms including memory loss, problems with reasoning and communication skills, and a reduction in a person's abilities and skills in carrying out activities of daily living. There are a number of different types of dementia the most common being Alzheimer's Disease, Vascular Dementia, Frontol Temporal Dementia and Dementia with Lewy bodies. A diagnosis of mixed dementia is when the presentation shows the person to have elements of more than one type of dementia. Dementia is a progressive condition. The symptoms become gradually worse, the rate of which varies from person to person and each person will experience dementia in a different way. The purpose of working with people who have dementia, is to improve the functions that the disability affects to the highest possible level. Once achieved, NLP is used to shift the focus and strengthen every other function and resource that the person is using to compensate for the areas that no longer work to their full capacity. Through using the techniques of NLP, we can improve the person's quality of life and provide them with more independence by removing any possible frustrations she or he is experiencing. Tune in to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston talks to author, Olive Hickmott about how she uses NLP to help people who suffer from Dementia. Health coach, Olive Hickmott will discuss her experience of helping carers (professional or family members) to better understand Dementia and Alzheimer's from a behavioural point of view. These insights are designed to give carers a different perspective, enabling them to improve the quality of everyone's experience. Olive will also offer a couple of simple processes to help carers maintain their own health, that is so vital, in such challenging circumstances.
www.helenhanson.com Maggie Fender’s law degree remains a daydream as she supports her ex-felon half-brother and their incoherent father. Suffering from Alzheimer’s, Dad’s rarely lucid, but when he’s accused of murder, only the gorgeous Russian neighbor flickers Maggie’s hope. In the news, disgraced hedge fund manager Patty O’Mara awaits trial for bilking investors out of forty billion dollars. The legendary dark pool wizard offered phenomenal profits. But the SEC discovered O’Mara never made a single legitimate investment. His fund was a total scam. Maggie’s Dad barely functions, but her hacker brother swears Dad is sending them vital messages about O’Mara’s pot of gold. A private investigator hunts for the money and aims to find it before a notorious Russian mobster. When their efforts focus on Maggie’s father, her remaining hope turns to rampant fear. She’s the only adult left in her family, and her weary camel won’t carry a single extra straw. Her teenage brother’s hacking skills landed his ass in prison, but he swears he was framed. No fans of the Fender family, the local police assume Dad ran away when he goes missing. Maggie will never find her father without help. She’s got to trust someone. But who can Maggie trust when everyone’s betrayed her?
