    Avoiding Caregiver Burnout week on Conversations In Care
    Caregiving is a hard job.  Physically demanding, mentally tasking, and emotionally draining.
    Today host Tami Neumann tackles the subject of caregiver burnout and welcomes in conversation Dr. Nadine Kelly.
    Dr. Kelly spent 17 years in a thriving practice but still felt that something was missing that she was not fulfilled.  She decided to take the focus off disease and rather focus on health, wellness and prevention.  That is when she decided to focus her attention on yoga full time.

    Community Connections_ Understanding and Preventing Caregiver Burnout

    in Family

    As a parent of a daughter with Schizoaffective Disorder, a son with speech/language delays, a partner with MS, and a father in the later stages of Alzheimer's not to mention I am dealing with CIDP, I can say that I have experienced caregiver burnout.  


    According to WebMd, Caregiver burnout is a state of physical, emotional, and mental exhaustion that may be accompanied by a change in attitude -- from positive and caring to negative and unconcerned. Burnout can occur when caregivers don't get the help they need, or if they try to do more than they are able -- either physically or financially. Caregivers who are "burned out" may experience fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depression. Many caregivers also feel guilty if they spend time on themselves rather than on their ill or elderly loved ones.


    Today, LAPC Song James and acclaimed autor Marion D. Cohen will join me to talk about the very real challenges that caregivers face but no one wants to talk about.  


    Marion Deutsche Cohen is the author of 23 books, prose and poetry. Besides the two well spouse memoirs, two most recent ones are CROSSING THE EQUAL SIGN, poetry about the experience of and her passion for math (from Plain View Press, TX) and PARABLES FOR A RAINY DAY (poetry chapbook from Green Fuse Press. She is well known in certain communities for her writings on bereaved parenthood, well-spouse-hood, and math. She teaches math and writing at Arcadia University (the old Beaver) in Glenside PA, where she has developed the course, Mathematics in Literature.

It is designed to teach caregivers who are taking care of their loved ones (due to an illness or disability) how to take care of themselves FIRST.

    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.

    Adrienne Gruberg, Pres. of The Caregiver Space, Discusses The Caregiving Crisis

    in Caregiving

    Join Dave Nassaney, The Caregiver's Caregiver, and his guest, Adrienne Gruberg, who refers to herself as "one of the millions of baby-boomers now in the middle of the caregiving crisis."


    She was born in New York City in 1948, and graduated from Boston University School of Fine Arts. Adrienne spent time in Liberia, West Africa, helping to set up a study for the New York Blood Center to discover the serum for Hepatitis B. She has worked at NBC Network in the business affairs department of the programming division, and later founded Adrienne Youngstein & Associates - an award winning graphic design, marketing, advertising and branding company in New York City. With the encouragement and coaching of her future husband, Steve Gruberg, she became a contestant on the popular TV game show "$20,000 Pyramid" and won the Grand Prize.


    Adrienne became a constant caregiver to both her husband, diagnosed with lung cancer in 2005, and his mother, who at the age of ninety in 2007, was diagnosed with lymphoma and went to live with her son and daughter-in-law in New York City. As a result of this crisis, she is the proud Founder and President of The Caregiver Space.


    According to Adrienne, "This site grew out of a personal need to connect with other caregivers and be part of a community where experiences and feelings could be shared and support could always be gotten. Understanding there are so many causes that make someone a caregiver made this site evolve into a place where a caregiver for any reason, could come and have a place to air their feelings – keeping them in is both exhausting and counter- productive. There are many services available to caregivers of patients with specific needs, but our concern is exclusively to comfort and help the caregiver."

    Another Fork in the Road: Rosemary Rawlins, Caregiver & Author

    in Education

    It only takes a split second for lives to change forever. Rosemary and Hugh Rawlins lives were turned upside down when Hugh was struck by a car during an afternoon bike ride. Rosemary was immediately thrust into caregiver mode as Hugh was reduced to helplessness. Rosemary's book, "Learning by Accident: A Caregiver’s True Story of Fear, Family, and Hope," details, in an easy-to-read story, how she and Hugh, with their two daughters, picked up the broken pieces of their lives and glued them back together.


    Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College plans, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slip from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating. But as Yogi Berra once said, "If you come to a fork in the road, take it." Life is all about choices!

Even abuse of the loved one they care for can result if the caregiver's needs continue to go unmet. Dr. Veronica looks at this problem with expert guests who bring different approaches to solving the problem.  Russell Cook co-hosts.
