    Caring For Elderly Parents: Will Your Spouse Help Take Care of Yours?

    in Religion

    The Female Solution w/Naimah Latif


    Some cultures have a specific method for determining which child will take care of the elderly parents: first born son, youngest daughter, etc. But Americans leave such a thing to chance, and many couples fail to discuss this important issue prior to the marriage. When our parents age, they may need to move in with us, or we may need to become their live in caregiver. Have you and your spouse agreed how you will handle the care of your aging parents? What if your parent is ill? What if your spouse's parent is ill? How would you feel about putting your elderly parent in a home? Today we examine how to approach this very sensitive subject with your spouse, before the time comes to care for an elderly parent

    Caring For Elderly Parents: Will Your Spouse Help Take Care of Yours?

    in Women

    Many cultures have a specific method for choosing which child will take care of parents when they become old and feeble. It may be the first born son, the youngest daughter, etc. But Americans have no such cultural practice and that means that elders are at the mercy of whichever child decides to take care of them. Is your spouse willing to help care for your parent? Would you care for your inlaws? Or would you put them in a senior citizen homeHow do you discuss the possibilities with your spouse?

    Choosing You - Caring for the Caregiver - Part 2

    in Motivation

    On today's show we will talk about caring for the caregiver. In Part 1 (on March 2) we talked about the basics of nutrition and ways to incease the feel good chemicals in our body with food. Eating well and balancing your blood sugar is essential for reducing stress, feeling well and keeping the stress hormone (cortisol) low. Today, we are going to go beyond the basics of nutrition and get into the mind-body connection and the power of our thoughts. You can choose to take care of you even if you have others to care for.
