    When a Mom's Caregiver SUDDENLY Needs a Caregiver Herself, Karla Jepson's Story

    in Caregiving

    Join Dave, The Caregiver's Caregiver, as he interviews Tereza Harper & Hana Eicher, the two sisters of Karla Jepson, caregiver to her mom for over a year, that is, until she had a massive aneurysm that left her with severe short-term memory loss and paralysis on her left side. Now her sisters have become not only their mom's caregiver, but Karla’s as well. They will talk about their ordeal, and how they learned how burnout and stress can be disabling, as it was for Karla.


    Back in 1979, their family all escaped from Communist Czechoslovakia. Karla's family stayed in a refugee camp in Austria for 5 months and came to California where they settled with the help of the parents' friends. None of them spoke any English when they first came.


    Tereza & Hana are both in the health care industry; Karla was a purchasing director at a private school in Calabasas. They each have wonderful children. Hana has a 16 year daughter, Sarah, Karla has a 17 year old son Jake, and Tereza has two daughters, 6 year old Stana, and 4 year old Lenka.


    Their dad passed away four years ago, and their mom hurt her lower spine taking care of him in his last two years of life.


    They believe the reason they are able to get through all of this hardship is that they were always a very close knit family. It is very difficult for them now to watch their Mom and sister become just a shell of their former selves. They grieve for them, and yet they are still with them.

    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.
