    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.

    Our program will focus on the changes in our community.  The Redevelopment plans taking shape with no apparent concern for our failing schools, elderly, and poor.  many of us are living at the mercy of the wealthy taking over and changing our community at will.  The Village of Hempstead is being vandalized, robbed, and taxes are running wild as they prepare to give over to the rich without a penalty!

    The HD View Ask Dr. Goodman Show

    in Health

    Let's talk about caregiving!  Tune in today as we talk with Dr. Goodman about the challenges of caregiving for our HD and JHD loved ones.  Many of us are dealing with so much loss before the loss and after the loss of our loved ones.  If you are a caregiver you know what I'm talking about. One person states, "On top of the personal stress, there is also the stress of maintaining one's home: replacing broken glass, punched doors, cleaning the furniture, not having friends over as often which lends into losing many people. Many of these "things," which is actually part of one's home community, go to pot so to speak. Even the outside of the home becomes shabby....all this lends to the stress of a caregiver."


    In trying to identify how many of us are caregiving, I found that it's really impossible to know the numbers because of the level of stress that the caregiver is under 24/7.  This stress does not let up; it only intensifies. Those of us who are under this kind of stress don't have time to answer surveys or polls. The question is how can we live like this?  Who will help us?  It's our own community who are so giving and caring and supportive, that's who.  


    Thank you HD Community for all that you do; for your committment to help others. You are amazing!

    It's a New Release and Giveaway of NEVERWYLDE on May 4th

    in Books

    Come listen on May 4th as I read an excerpt from book 1 of my brand new sci-fi romance series, NEVERWYLDE, The Rim of the World. One lucky listener will win a copy!


    * * *


    Two species, bitter enemies, are determined to destroy each other, until they realize they need one another to survive a major catastrophe.


    As they race through a nebulous anomaly in the midst of a major battle, the Terrans and Seneecians are blown through a wormhole to crash land on an uncharted world. A half world. A world containing the remains of a long-dead civilization.

    Lt. Kelen Chambliss knows she has no reason to trust the furred, humanoid creatures, but she and her crew members cannot survive without their help, and the Seneecians cannot survive without theirs. Neither can she ignore the fearsome-looking one called Kyber, with his wicked talons and piercing green eyes.

    As they slowly come to realize there is no escape or forthcoming rescue from the barren planet, Kelen learns there is much about the enemy she never knew. Including the fact that Kyber's formidable appearance hides a strong, brave, and caring heart.

    Warning! Contains glowing glyphs, blue pancakes, eye worms, endless tunnels, and two people of different species daring to take their last and only chance at love.

    "Are You Called to Comfort?" A Show on Compassion Fatigue

    in Christianity

    “Are You Called To Comfort”?  Join me today as we look at the phenonenom of compassion fatigue or caregiver's syndome.  Many of us are called to comfort and care for others. We are often  called to "care" for others, sometimes because we "have to",  and other times because we "want to".   It is most often, a combination of both the "have to" and the "want to".  So how do we "comfort others with the comfort we've received",  and do it in a  way that gives life to both the giver and reciever? 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. Many times caregivers who are "burned out" experience fatigue, stress, anxiety, and depressive symptims.  Many caregivers also feel guilty if they spend time on themselves rather than on their ill or elderly loved ones.  Today we will look at how to know if you are burning out, the feelings that come with caring for other another (on any level), and how to do it in a healthy way.  So, we ask the question again, "How do we comfort others with the comfort we've received,  and do it in a way that gives life to both the giver and reciever?  Most of all, we find that the ability to comfort well is always connected to the caregiver's ability and willingness to receive care.
