    Elder Care & The Holidays!


    Becky will share the story of her late husband who had Huntington’s Disease (a degenerative brain disease) and how she cared for him for 11 years until his death at the young age of 49.  


    This journey as a caregiver led her to start 2 eldercare businesses (one a non-profit and the other for profit) along with writing The Eldercare Consultant.  With over ten years of experience and working with over 1,000 families, Becky has seen so many mistakes and successes.

    Stephanie Erickson : 4 Keys to Better Eldercare

    in Relationships

    November is National Alzheimer’s Awareness Month.The statistics are truly staggering – 1 in 9 Americans over 65 has Alzheimer’s Disease. That’s more than 5 million people. Scarier still, some estimates say by the year 2030, that number will be 13 million. The strain of caregiving often rips families apart–but my guest today says it doesn’t have to be that way. Stephanie Erickson says it’s high time to talk about aging, whether it involves medical care for a parent, if Mom should stop driving, or even where the important papers are kept. Today she’ll discuss the four steps to get the discussion going, and how being proactive will help everyone age by design, not default.


    A licensed social worker, Stephanie has worked with seniors and theirfamilies for over 20 years by providing training and consultation to them, the Alzheimer’s Society as well as financial and legal institutions. Her website is www.ericksonresource.com.
