    Caregiver Wellness Series #2: The Resilient Caregiver

    in Self Help

            Resilience is a strengths-based term that refers to the ability of the caregiver to adjust and adapt positively despite challenging care-related situations. Resilience among caregivers is important because we must be able to pick ourselves up  and refocus our energy in a healthy way.  One of our resilient caregivers stated that “I am a family caregiver and even though there may be days that it takes all I can give I would not give it up for anything.”
             Never giving up and pushing forward as a caregiver is the type of resilience we will be discussing on this show.  We will also discuss how you as a caregiver can provide care for a sick or disabled loved one or client in a healthy and flexible way.  Please join us on March 26, 2012 @ 11 a.m. CST as Dr. Eboni Green further defines and discusses what it means and how to become a resilient caregiver.

    Caregiver Wellness Series #1: The Empowered Caregiver

    in Self Help

    The term empowerment is defined as the ability to engage in and execute behaviors for successful caregiving. It is a significant force that helps the caregiver with the tasks associated with caring for a sick or disabled loved one. In fact, once a caregiver is empowered, the caregiver is better able to help a loved one live life with greater fulfillment. 
    Also empowered caregivers are more likely to take self-responsibility for their health and wellness, in addition to the well-being of their loved one. In fact, in a recent study, employed caregivers were found to have higher healthy behavior index scores than noncaregivers (Coughlin, 2010). Coughlin has suggested that the higher healthy behavior index scores among employed caregivers might be related to the caregivers being empowered to make healthier lifestyle decisions such as not smoking, exercising regularly, and eating fresh fruits and vegetables on a more consistent basis.
    Join us on February 27, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. CST as caregiver expert, Dr. Eboni Green discusses the profile of an empowered caregiver and how we as caregivers can take responsibility of self-empowerment and strive for optimum wellness.

    You Are Not Alone! Caring For The Family Caregiver. Greg Johnson

    in Caregiving

    Are you a family caregiver? If you provide regular and unpaid care to a loved one, you are a family caregiver, the backbone to the caregiving industry. Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, as he interviews Greg Johnson, the creator and director of EmblemHealth's Care for the Family Caregiver, an initiative that was started nearly 15 years ago as part of the Integrative Wellness program, this Wed. May 6, (at noon, PDT, 3pm, EDT, and afterwards anytime, 24/7 on recorded podcast)

    One of many definitions for family caregivers is: "Someone who shows up, and stays to help," and: one who is, "Always On Call."  One in three people in America are unpaid family caregivers, rendering a value to the healthcare system of $450 Billion Dollars! Caregivers need care too!

    Their goal is to offer information, resources and support that caregivers need to avoid becoming care recipients. We recognize that family caregivers are often the forgotten or silent patients.

    Many caregivers endure physical, emotional and economic challenges without adequate support. Most need help in order to maintain their own health and quality of life.

    EmblemHealth's Care for the Family Caregiver initiative recognizes the health needs of the "silent patients" and is designed to serve as a resource. We encourage you to see us as a supportive partner in your caregiving journey.

    Dave The Caregiver's Caregiver & His Wife, Charlene Nassaney's Amazing Story

    in Caregiving

    Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, and his lovely wife, Charlene Nassaney's Amazing story of survival, but not just survival, living abundantly with peace, joy and contentment in the midst of a debilitating stroke and a cafregiver spouse.

    Original broadcast airs this Wednesday, 8/12/15, and anytime afterwards on recorded podcast at the same link.

    Charlene’s story is truly amazing, and very encouraging to everyone.  All who meet her instantly fall in love with her. She has been described as a cross between Martha Stewart and Wonder Woman before her stroke, and it is not uncommon for some who meet her to cry — not tears of pity — but tears of joy and amazement for her attitude and ability despite her disability. Her way of communicating without words is very interesting and very entertaining to experience.

    She is also a woman of great faith.  At times, we all wonder how we would respond, if a similar circumstance were to happen to us, or to one of our family. She has been non-verbal and paralyzed on one side since September, 1996 as a result of an unexpected, and unexplained stroke.

    You truly will be amazed at Charlene’s great positive attitude, which tends to keep our own problems in their proper perspective. Charlene’s story is now an encouraging testimony that inspires anyone who hears it.

    How Dementia & My Parents Turned Me Into a Caregiver & a Car Thief

    in Caregiving

    Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, as he interviews Ellen Nielsen, a marketing and communications consultant based in Alberta, Canada.  She was also a caregiver to two parents with dementia (at the same time). Her parents moved in to care together and were fortunate to share a room until her mother's passing in 2003.

    Ellen's caregiving duties included a lot of things she would rather have not done, including theft of a car, and yet she considers herself better and stronger for having done them. Her father passed in 2013, now making Ellen an ex-caregiver, a role which she says is just as challenging to embrace as the original task of becoming a caregiver.

    You can find Ellen on facebook at facebook.com/caregiverconnexion - connection spelled with an x in the middle (because everything has to be just a little more complicated for caregivers - thanks Ellen).
