    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.

    Caregiver Stress Reduction Tips & Tools

    in Military

    As a caregiver, you may be so focused on your loved one that you don't realize that your own health and well-being are suffering. Watch for these signs of caregiver stress:



    Feeling overwhelmed or constantly worried
    Feeling tired most of the time
    Sleeping too much or too little
    Gaining or losing a lot of weight
    Becoming easily irritated or angry
    Losing interest in activities you used to enjoy
    Feeling sad
    Having frequent headaches, bodily pain or other physical problems
    Abusing alcohol or drugs, including prescription medications


    Too much stress, especially over a long time, can harm your health. As a caregiver, you're more likely to experience symptoms of depression or anxiety. In addition, you may not get enough sleep or physical activity, or eat a balanced diet — which increases your risk of medical problems, such as heart disease and diabetes. On this episode of Hope For The Warriors Talk Radio we will share stress-reduction tips and strategies.


    SPECIAL GUESTS: Military Veteran Caregivers, Colleen Saffron and Glenda Leary will talk about their experiences of being on the verge of caregiver burnout and how they were able to successfully combat caregiver burnout. Heather Moates will also guest appear on our show and share how she's found stress reduction, individuality and HOPE through creating beautiful wreaths and starting her own business.

    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.
