Gina's intention is to spend the rest of her life helping those targeted by these guardian programs that allow doctors to claim someone incapacitated, and lawyers that go behind the backs of friends and family and judges that grant for profit guardianship and complete control over others lives without telling them.

    Wicked Insurance Matters with Greg Durette: Elder Financial Abuse Prevention

    in Family

    Elder Financial Abuse. 

    It is a dirty, disgusting term that makes most normal folks cringe at the thought of such a thing.  The sad fact is, it is out there...in your community...maybe in your own family...in so many forms and in so many paces, many consider it an epidemic.  Go figure that.

    This week, I am privileged to have Barbara-Anne Foley, Executive Director of the Harwich Council on Aging, as my special guest to help address this subject.  In addition to her many duties in this important role, she has been able to leverage her experience with thousands of seniors and the stories they have told about financial abuse, by working with in partnership with the Harwich Police Department, trying to warn seniors about these frauds and scams.

    For those of you who do not know her, Barbara-Anne began her career in mental health and career counseling in Braintree, MA.  She also worked in an adult day care center and a nursing center on Cape Cod before landing her dream job with the Harwich Council on Aging in 1999.  She can be reached there at (508) 430-7550.

    She has developed a primary focus on Alzheimer's disease and hoarding, both population of which are growing in leaps and bounds.

    In 2006, when her own father lost his 10 year battle to Alzheimer's disease, she and her family started the "Remembery Walk ---Dave Birtwell Memorial", raising over $150,000 to date for Alzheimer's patients and their families.

    This show will hopefully help you understand:

    How to recognize elder financial abuse
    The different types of financial abuse
    How to uncover it in your own family
    What to do about it once you do discover it

    This is an important show.  Please tune in and tell as many people as you can to do so as well.

    The Matt Duffin Show - Welcome Back TBI'er

    in Radio

    The places I've seen with fresh,, alive eyes do to Brain Injury Survival over the past week, will be discussed.  No production, just me and my BICS "Bible' and expressions of twin-tbi-traveling partner (neither gay, thank you) Branden Stackhouse.  I haven't unpacked much yet, I'll find notes, pictures, and Amy Sue Root's strength as a fellow BI Survivor (and more, much more health complications).


     Pikes Peak, we came, I fell, they conquered.  I was close enough, Noah Root and Branden secured the advancing party to the top -  I danced on your ass though, my TBI still has Peak's too.  I did have to aquire Amy Sue's personal Nursing Assistance - Sue Root.  Borrowed and bought some Medical Marijuana Salve - legally, to sooth the pain.  Coach Renforth woulda been proud of my 20-foot diving tackle on Ol' Mighty Oak - stopped the damned thing in its track.  OUCH, sure.  Shattered shoulder took aa hammering, Sue and the Miracle Salve recovered me.  Oh, that and a long series of bandages.  Then I leagally smoked a joint 3-days later.  Talk about Rocky Mountain High.  Plus, God didn't allow me heaven's gate just yet - just reminded me how exciting life still is with work to be done.  I love my society and its caring ways.


     God had to smack me in the head pretty hard to get my attention.  As the challenging doors are opened by Angles, I see how it works.  (424)  243-9540, call me tonight.  I'm on the fly with a fist full of thoughts from being out West..  The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly...

    Looking To Heal Chronic Illnesses Consider Using Biomagnetismo y magnetopuntura

    in Business

    It is a therapy that assumes that the cause of all disease is an imbalance in the pH of the human body, because viruses, fungi, bacteria and / or parasites need these imbalances to survive within the organism.La therapy uses pairs of magnets from the first session restore these imbalances, nursing neutralizing pathogens that cause disease. In this way it is achieved exterminate bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi in the body. To organs and glands are affected can heal and balance using these magnets. This technique was discovered in Mexico and initially developed by Dr. Isaac Goiz Duran who has made several significant findings during his research to find the real causes of disease and how they can be removed.

    The results will always be reported with medical examinations so that the patient not only feels good but can actually find that the pathogens have been completely removed from your body.

    Millions of people worldwide have been treated with this therapy, and now Biomagnetism and Magnetopuncture are generating awareness even in Europe. Madrid University now offers the Degree too, apart from the numerous universities throughout Latin America. Soon The Institute for Research in Mexicowill end the scientific research, which show that many diseases that are supposedly incurable can be treated relatively easily.

    Therefore we say that health is the balance between body, mind and emotions.

    Think about family problems, a traumatic experience in his youth, a trapped emotion, difficulties at work or perhaps an imbalance in a relationship. Maybe it sounds strange, but we could also consider these symptoms or "indicators" as the result of some mental or physical disorder or imbalance, which systematically has been affecting you without you being aware of it. For a certified therapist this indicates clearly and quickly what to do to help you regain your balance.
