November is National Family Caregivers Month. According to the Caregiver Action Network, about 29% of the U.S. population will provide care for a chronically ill, disabled, or aged family member or friend during a given year, spending an average of 20 hours a week providing care. On this show, we'll discuss the issue of caregiving, why it's so important for caregivers to take time for themselves, and the ways in which men and women differ when it comes to what each needs. No calls - listen only mode.
Tonight, join an Observer as we discuss some thoughts I have had recently about moving, life, and how much I have grown in the past few years. Areas of interest include knowing our direction as individuals and as a race, keeping our sense of humor (and ridiculing the anti-Whites), and not surrenduring to them, circumstances, or ourselves.
Your calls are always welcome.
Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, and his guest, Adrienne Gruberg, who refers to herself as "one of the millions of baby-boomers now in the middle of the caregiving crisis."
She was born in New York City in 1948, and graduated from Boston University School of Fine Arts. Adrienne spent time in Liberia, West Africa, helping to set up a study for the New York Blood Center to discover the serum for Hepatitis B. She has worked at NBC Network in the business affairs department of the programming division, and later founded Adrienne Youngstein & Associates - an award winning graphic design, marketing, advertising and branding company in New York City. With the encouragement and coaching of her future husband, Steve Gruberg, she became a contestant on the popular TV game show "$20,000 Pyramid" and won the Grand Prize.
Adrienne became a constant caregiver to both her husband, diagnosed with lung cancer in 2005, and his mother, who at the age of ninety in 2007, was diagnosed with lymphoma and went to live with her son and daughter-in-law in New York City. As a result of this crisis, she is the proud Founder and President of The Caregiver Space.
According to Adrienne, "This site grew out of a personal need to connect with other caregivers and be part of a community where experiences and feelings could be shared and support could always be gotten. Understanding there are so many causes that make someone a caregiver made this site evolve into a place where a caregiver for any reason, could come and have a place to air their feelings – keeping them in is both exhausting and counter- productive. There are many services available to caregivers of patients with specific needs, but our concern is exclusively to comfort and help the caregiver."

Many of us fail to see the humor (or often the irony) in life's experiences. In this context, irony is incongruity between what actually happens and what might be expected to happen, especially when this disparity is absurd or laughable. If we take the time, we find that life is full of such moments. Now that the event is distant and the pain has subsided, thinking about such experiences can make us smile. It turns out that such reflection is a valuable practice. Medical science tells us that if we take life too seriously we will have physical and emotional problems. Tune in this week as Nancy Herold and I discus the importance of ‘lightening up’ as we pursue enlightenment. The recent passing of Robin Williams has left a void in many of our lives because of his gift of laughter. His loss is a reminder that sometimes we have to ‘carry’ the torch of laughter for ourselves. This should be a fun show!
Linda Noelker, Senior Vice President of the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, will join Denise to discuss the Innovation in Caregiving Award. The award recognizes adults who, in the course of caring for an adult aged 60 or older invents a device or technique that solves a caregiving challenge or finds a new application for an existing device or technique that supports caregiving and eases the burden on caregivers.
Mary Stoudemire, a family caregiver and 2012 award winner, will discuss her past winning design: a lap capelet she designed for her sister.
Once again we will have Daniel Mentz with us and we'll be chatting about how to harvest your humor and bring some laughter into your lives. Humor is a great tool for the professional speaker and it's also a valuable tool for anyone in the business world. Humor breaks through the tension barrier, puts people at ease, develops a more creative and relaxed environment and increases productivity. Humor also always boosts morale and develops enthusiasm. Plenty of good reasons to learn how to be funny.
If you have a funny story to share, please share and we'll share it live on air.
