Healthcare Whisperer welcomes a mother, Diane Roof and daughter, Jen Hashisaki caregiver team to the show to discuss their journey into the world of hospice.
This story began when Diane's mother fell, was hospitalized and went to rehab. Neither Diane or Jen, ever thought the fall would bring them face to face with the need for hospice services. It was a journey filled with much anguish and misinformation. During this time, they needed to learn how to navigate the healthcare system to ensure their loved one was getting the best care.
Tune in to find out how these amazing care giving team fought for the best possible care, learned how to ask the right questions and insisted on having hospice involved. This is one show you won't want to miss.
Tonights broadcast deals with a very emotional time for most everyone. It's what I like to call, "The last great adventure."
I recently saw a quote the I felt was so appropriate to discuss what hospice is. "Hospice doesn't help you die as much as it helps you finish living." (author unknown)
When the end of the life cycle is near, choosing a hospice is often uncharted territory for most of us.
Tonight my guest is the owner of a local hospice agency. Together we will take some of the guesswork away when it comes to hospice.
We will be discussing when hospice is appropriate, the various things people should know when choosing a hospice agency, and what is reasonable to expect from your hospice agency.
Unemployment and it's unintended consequences....For example, if one particular worker loses his job, he lacks the ability to purchase goods, which, in turn affects the local businesses where he frequents, which then affects their supplies, and so forth ,which then affects their supplies, and so forth
Regardless of whatever is happening at this very moment with the economy you cannot allow it to keep you without work. I'm going to tell you how you can get to back to work. You have to get some money coming in. This means you have to get work. Don't allow a few to decide you will not find work. Getting work has to be what you know will happen. Then and only then will you put in play whatever it takes to make getting work a reality. Let me tell you about days of old. We never ever felt "I'm never going to get hired". We always knew a job would be sooner rather than later. It had to be. There was not option. Not getting a job has never been an option in the social economic world of my days as an employee. I've never been jobless a moment longer than I chose to be jobless. It just wasn't an option to not get hired. These are the kinds of guts America was built on. These are the kinds of guts it takes now. If you want a thriving America you have to choose to either survive or to thrive. Find a way. Find a job that gives you a pride. Get some training if needed. Do what it takes, just go get the job you desire. Remember you will survive or you will thrive. What's your call, America?
