    MMSRS #30 - Filing taxes and the male military spouse

    in Military

    Join host Dave Etter and guest Rob Aeschbach, founder and owner of The Military Financial Planner LLC, as we discuss and take call concerning filing taxes this year.


    MMSRS is a weekly 2-hour web-based radio show, hosted by Dave Etter, focusing on the needs of men married to serving military members, both men and women. Male Military Spouses are a small niche of military spouses, comprising of only 7%-8% of all military spouses. We feel left out, usually, at support functions - especially those designed with the spouses being identified as "wives"! We get cajoled at playgrounds where our kids play, from the mommies there who think we don't belong. We are proud SAHDs, who gave up our careers to follow our spouses as they dedicate thier lives to defend our country! Here, on this show, we come together and share beer recipes, diaper changing techniques, financial discoveries - manly things, for men! Airs Fridays at Noon CT, rated R for the cussing that can occur, and available for download (podcast) immediately following each show.

    Male Caregivers & Discrimination in the Workplace

    in Work

    There is a growing number of male caregivers to small children or aging parents in our society. Male caregivers now comprise 45% of all family caregivers in the nation.
    The average male caregiver is 49 years old. He works at a full time job though, and is usually caring for an aging parent ( usually his mom- average age of 77). The average source of the caring in this situation is alzheimers or dementia.
    It can be attributed to a number of different things though, including divorce, more female primary breadwinners in the family  and more openly gay men.
    Join Flex Hour Jobs as we discuss the reasons for this societal change and what we can do to change the perspective at the workplace.

    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.
