    Support for Caregivers who Love and Help others

    in Current Events

    Are you helping a family member, spouse or someone in need but losing yourself in the process?  How can you find comfort and support for you when your daily activities take every ounce of life out of you?  Can you love and care for others but also love and care for yourself?  What are the limits of our heart strings?  And can we recognize what is within our grasp to help and what is not in our power to change as God's plan is in control?


    Peter Rosenberger, author of Hope for the Caregiver:  Encouraging words to strengthen your spirit will be sharing his personal story and how he now helps others to find the support caregivers so desperately need.  Peter offers caregivers practical, faith-based and compassionate help and understanding.  He will be sharing about loss of identity, isolation, fear, resentment and guilt while offering hope to those who care for others.

    Why Caregivers Find it So Stressful Dealing with Healthcare Providers & Agencies

    in Caregiving

    Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver’s Caregiver, as he interviews Author, Carol Levine, the director of The Families and Health Care Project at The United Hospital Fund, a health services research and philanthropic organization whose primary mission is to shape positive change in health care for the people of New York (and elsewhere).


    Their campaign, Next Step in Care, provides easy-to-use guides to help family caregivers and health care providers work closely together to plan and implement safe and smooth transitions for chronically or seriously ill patients.


    Transitions are moves between care settings, for example, hospital to home or rehab facility, or the start or end of home care agency services. Because transitions are often rushed, miscommunication and errors can occur.


    Her book, Living in the Land of Limbo: Fiction and Poetry about Family Caregiving, is a first-of-its-kind anthology of short stories and poetry about family caregiving by renowned authors and others has just been published. Compiled and edited by Carol Levine, and published by Vanderbilt University Press, the new volume is a valuable addition to the national discussion on family caregiving and to the Fund’s work, which has focused on improving partnerships between caregivers and health care professionals since 1996.

Maria was the Keynote Speaker for the Spring Caregiver Conference in Kingston, NY earlier this year, an all day event created to provide family caregivers with inspiration and helpful resources.

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-broadcasts Saturday 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.
