Dave Nassaney; is an author of numerous books and articles, speaker, life coach, entrepreneur, gas station owner for 35 years, and radio talk-show host for caregivers who are burned out, but his most important role is being a caregiver to his lovely wife, Charlene. She suffered a massive stroke for no apparent reason. As a result, she lost her speech and has not spoken in sentences since. She is also paralyzed on the right side of her body. Charlene was like a cross between Martha Stewart and Wonder Woman before her stroke. After a two year grieving period, she came to the realization that she had to "play the cards that she was dealt," and so she decided to reinvent herself. Caregiving was a challanging journey for Dave.
His latest book that he's working on is a result of that journey. It is entitled: "The Caregiver's Caregiver, A Guide to Avoiding Burnout & Surviving Grief." 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. If they don't learn this, they will likely suffer burnout and become as helpless as the person they are caring for. Charlene continues to be an inspiration to Dave. "She makes us normal people look like whiners and complainers, and continues to do almost everything she did before her stroke, but in essence,she does it now with one arm and one leg tied behind her back, and she might as well have duct tape over her mouth, because she only can speak a handful of words."

Many cultures have a specific method for choosing which child will take care of parents when they become old and feeble. It may be the first born son, the youngest daughter, etc. But Americans have no such cultural practice and that means that elders are at the mercy of whichever child decides to take care of them. Is your spouse willing to help care for your parent? Would you care for your inlaws? Or would you put them in a senior citizen homeHow do you discuss the possibilities with your spouse?
Today, I’m welcoming Debbie Cunningham, attorney at law, back to the show to talk about legal planning for your aging parents.

About this episode: Today we'll talk about releasing negative patterns our parents set up for us.
About this show: I lost both parents to cancer at 22 and 27. Let’s talk about stuff that’s hard, ways you can move forward in your life and how to get back to a happier place. My intention is to connect those of us who have lost our mothers, our fathers or both parents, at any age, through the arts, life experiments, looking inward and turning pain into something positive.

The boomer generation is facing a number of challenges as we grow older—one of them being how to deal with our elderly parents. Sometimes you need to act the bad guy and take over certain aspects of their lives. But when?

Parents here we are at the start of AAU basketball season. Many of us have young athletes are involved in the Nike, Adidas, or Under Armor circuits. Far too often although the certified event are required to give an NCAA requirement brief. Many of our young men and ladies still walk away with no more of an understanding of the requirements. Again I ask what is our role in this process of initial NCAA eligibility requirements. For the next few months sports will be our world so we must embrace this environment.
It is only a matter of time until a senior loved one will need to visit an ER in crisis. Are you ready with personal belongings, documents needed for admission, Medical Information Notebook, questions to ask and discharge? It is a scary and stressful time, learn to be prepared, stay calm and protect the rights of your parent, neighbor, grandmother or friend.

In this broadcast, Joanna Infeld, author of the book "God's Spies; Gratefully Aging" will explore some of the beliefs associated with the idea of reincarnation and life after death. As we age and we approach the exit, we inevitably wonder what lies ahead on the other side. Do our beliefs influence what happens to us after the death of the physical body? We will be asking these and other questions with no hope of finding a definitive answer (yet).
The Female Solution w/Naimah Latif
Some cultures have a specific method for determining which child will take care of the elderly parents: first born son, youngest daughter, etc. But Americans leave such a thing to chance, and many couples fail to discuss this important issue prior to the marriage. When our parents age, they may need to move in with us, or we may need to become their live in caregiver. Have you and your spouse agreed how you will handle the care of your aging parents? What if your parent is ill? What if your spouse's parent is ill? How would you feel about putting your elderly parent in a home? Today we examine how to approach this very sensitive subject with your spouse, before the time comes to care for an elderly parent
The physician has suggested that It is time for your loved one to move to assisted living and they do not budge. What I hear from my senior cleints is, "I have lived in this house for 50 years and I plan to die here!" For the safty and health there is a critcal time to move where there is medical oversight. The adult children need some suggestions at this point. The telecast will give an extensive list of approaches and ways to get help. Remember you are not alone!
