    10 Things You MUST DoToBeAn Organized Caregiver,byOrganizingExpert,DebbyeCannon

    in Caregiving

    In the early 1980’s, I was caring for my 2 children (both under two years old, & in cloth diapers!) and life was absolutely eating me alive! I had the responsibilities of wife, mother, homemaker and I was endeavoring to run a substantial home-based business. I found that although my business was EXPLODING, my home life was IMPLODING! What WAS I thinking?


    By late afternoon, when I needed to be preparing dinner, I’d find myself collapsed in my kitchen from low blood sugar, surrounded by my little ones without a CLUE about what I could assemble for dinner. There would be pasta, but no sauce, meat frozen solid and no side dishes in my pantry. My house felt a mess. Laundry was piled high and the floors were so sticky I feared walking through the kitchen!


    I decided to create some shortcuts. I created a system for more than just surviving my life. Pretty soon I was actually thriving, and my friends noticed. By popular demand, I began teaching local workshop groups. The Butler family encouraged me to publish my system. The first edition was published in September of 1988, a second printing followed in January 1997 and a third edition in 2006.


    Prompted to share my systems and techniques, I have now become the SMARTcut® Expert. I am passionate about helping way past busy entrepreneurs especially Caregivers, who are struggling with the juggling. I hope my work will give you the time and energy to reach more of your personal dreams, serve your family, church and community in ways that really make a difference.

    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."

    Career Maverick to Caregiver - When Caregiving Has Changed Your Life

    in Caregiving

    "How do I deal with the reality of leaving behind the life I had in order to become the primary caregiver to my parents?"


    Many professionals, child-free life or with kids, never factor in that caring for loved ones would play any significant role in their career path. Like many in our generation, we never fully considered the potential need to care for our aging parents. Now, with aging parents who have lived through health episodes that once would have killed them, or a parent who has lived beyond an age ever thought possible only, are left with questions and often experiencing: Resentment. Burnout. Hard time staying connected. Stressful relationship. Job responsibilities redistributed. Juggling parents' needs with your company's and family. No energy to reinvent  yourself as a former career maverick. It is clear. You need to move on.


    Tandy Elisala MA, CPSC, ACH, CHt, TFT-Alg is Energy for Success' guest with host and life & relationship coach Debrah Mathis. Tandy is a Certified Professional Success Coach, Family Caregiver Coach and Author of the book, "Healing Through the Chaos: Practical Caregiving."

    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!
