    Managing Caregiver Stress

    in Health

    Joyce talks with Eve (not her real name) about her experience as a caregiver through her husband’s chronic illness and death. She then talks with Dr. Sheryle Baker about Eve’s experience, and about the changes that occur in the dynamics between the patient and the caregiver, and how we can all help the caregiver survive. This is a one hour show. About Our Guests Eve (not her real name) is the widow of a man who had von Hippel-Lindau disease, and a series of brain and kidney tumors that led him to a course of dialysis and eventually to his death. Eve graciously shares the pain of her experience so that we can learn from her experience.
    Sheryle Baker, M.A., LMHC., is Executive Director of Life Center of Tampa, Florida, a non-profit agency that provides counseling for victims of violent crime, and people who have lost loved ones, through chronic illness or sudden death. She a psychotherapist specializing in bereavement and traumatic loss and incident,
    About Caregiver Stress It is important to manage caregiver stress while you are going through the experience. If the patient is willing to negotiate the changes in roles and responsibilities that occur, that can help. Others around the caregiver can provide important support and outlets for stress.
    For both the patient and the caregiver, there are a series of losses, culminating in the death of the loved one. Each of these losses must be grieved, and the grief worked through, or the stress turns outward (as anger) or inward (as bitterness and even illness).
    Often when we are in a traumatic incident we muddle on through and seem to be doing fine. After the peak of the stress has passed, however, we crash. This “post-traumatic stress” can be devastating, and requires work to get through it.

    Leslie's Story

    in Health

    In this episode, we speak with Leslie Carrington who has an unusual modality, she reduces the stress and burden on wellness practitioners that come about from staging,promoting and marketing  Wellness Workshops and Wellness Retreats. The workshops are here in NYC while the retreats are in various exotic locations such as Jamaica,a Greek island, and South America. Leslie’s interest in many forms of wellness started early in life as she was raised in Guyana, South America and would be given natural remedies from the garden to deal with any illness. Later, in the United States, she worked for 15 years as a social worker working with children and their families and found the stress to be intense. This led her to look into natural wellness here and sparked her interest in helping wellness practitioners to produce and promote workshops and retreats. She not only loves her work, but also finds she has much less stress in her life.
