SORT BY Relevancy
Join us as we discuss health, money and lifestyle for the aging population. Are you preparing for your retirement? Are you health conscious, staying in shape? We are living longer and longer. Lets talk about making aging easier and comfortable.
And of course we must talk about 2 major anniversaries that recently passed; Katrina and Emmet Till.
Aging in place is defined by the Centers for Disease Control as "the ability to live in one's own home and community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level." The value of aging in place is recognized more now than ever before.
Today, with families scattered, the responsibility for the details of care can be overwhelming. With so much to consider on a daily basis, it's easy for important needs to get lost in the mix.
Moli Steinert, Executive Director at SteppingStone -an Adult Day Health Care Center is here to help us put those critical pieces of the puzzle together.
Life produces many challenges in our lives like, bills, work, marriage, children, business or health issues. Balancing all of these things are difficult enough. But many of us haven't added caring for our aging or ill parents to the equation. Join MSKeepItMoving on The Keep It Moving Blog Talk Radio Show as she discusses why it is important to have "The Talk" with your parents regarding their care should you become responsible for them. What do the want should they fall ill? You don't want to miss this episode of The Keep It Moving Blog Talk Radio Show.
Topics to be discussed:
1. Having the talk. Knowing what they want should you have to make decisions on their behalf.

3. Health insurance coverage: Coverage for nursing homes, hospital visits etc.
4. Quiting your job: Is this a good option or not.
5. Your own future: Retirement plans. Talking to your kids about your own transitions.
Meet Becky Feola author of The Eldercare Consultant, Your Guide to Making the Best Choices Possible
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 families make and have when caring for an aging loved one.
One of the reasons Becky has been so successful and loved by her clients is that she has walked in her shoes. She is a safe person for them to talk to and confess what they consider to be their dark secrets filled with guilt, fear and anger — only to discover they aren’t alone with these secrets and that Becky has also carried the same weight.
Her work has given guidance and hope to so many who have a long journey ahead of them.

Rainbows, Butterflies & One Last Hug : A Mother's Spiritual Journey Losing Two Children to Cystic Fibrosis
Robert Kaplan of "OK 2 Age at Home" speaks with Robin and Joyce about modifications that can be made to one's home to make it safer for yourself, for an aging parent, or for anyone with a disability.
Our abilities change as we get older. Sometimes it is difficult to accept that our capabilities have changed, and to accept and face the "new normal." The most important thing it to avoid falling. The older we are, the more serious an injury a fall can create -- falling out of bed, falling on the steps, or in the bathroom. There are a number of modifications that can be made -- in ways that can enhance the value of the home -- that can make it safer and more realistic to remain at home.
We need first to consider: is this the place where I want to be? Is it accessible to grocery store and services? to social activities? or would it in fact be better to move?
If it's the right place to be, then is it possible to live on one floor? or to add a stair lift? Is it safe to get into the home? Should we add railings or a ramp?
Is the bathroom safe? Would it be wise to add grab bars, a shower seat, or a bathtub seat where you can sit first and swing your legs into the tub? Is the floor too slippery?
We discuss these issues and more on the Powerful Patient
