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."

A lot is written about seeing our parents through dementia, but not much is available to discuss what it takes to deal with parents who might need our assistance, but who still have all their faculties. How do we finesse a parent who wants to maintain their independence into moving nearer to us; into giving us Power of Attorney to take care of their healthcare and financial needs; to accept daily help? How do we do this while allowing them to maintain their dignity?
With honesty and insight borne of experience, through Elderly Parents With All Their Marbles: A Survival Guide for the Kids, author Pam Carey shares her personal journey as well as the (humorously serious) "Rules of the Road" she developed while caring for her parents.
Anyone who has ever had to care for elderly parents will see their own situations reflected in this witty yet practical guide to surviving the ordeal. You will feel like you’re right by Pam's side as she outlines 49 essential points for navigating the trials of elderly living, the medical issues and the inevitable loss that eventually comes. She illustrates each point with her own sometimes hilarious and often poignant experiences.
This book is a must-read as a resource for anyone dealing with assisting an aging loved one. Please consider purchasing a copy as a gift for a friend, care facility or YOUR children.
Pam wrote the book as a resource for others facing similar journeys. She is also the author of Minor League Mom, A Mother's Journey Through the Red Sox Farm Teams (2009). The mother of Red Sox farm team veterans Tim and Todd Carey, Pamela holds a B.A. from Colby College and an M.A. from Columbia University Teachers College.

It the beginning of the Iraq War, I sat mesmerized in front of my television as I watched the bombs blowing up over the city of Baghdad. It was like a television series, and I could only imagine the lost lives in the random explosions. The Bush Administration alled it Shock and Awe, but the U.S. has never implemented such devastation for no reason at all before that. Now as we are being thretened and challenged by ISIS, we are finding that the Pro-Syrian fighters we are planning to train are being swept up and aligned with ISIS. The Congress is still twiddling their thumbs in order to watch as Obama fails.
The Company you keep determines you. It is sometimes better to be alone than to be caught up in the wrong company. Wheter a boyfriend, of associates in the park. Tell me who your best friends are and I will tell you who you are. If you run with wolves, you will learn how to howl. The less you associate with some people, the more your life will improve.
Our Program today willl speak on Gentrification in our communities and how we have to band together to keep from being forced out of our homes and apartments. We will also discuss the conflict the president is facing in this upcoming battle with ISIS. It goes without saying that the GOP Congress will do all they can to defeat his plans even at the sake of losing the war.

What are some of the special challeges involved with caring for older pets? Many times when we take on the responsibility of caring for a new pet, we forget that as time goes on, our beloved friends will inevitably grow older--and with advancing age comes special care that may not have been needed when they were younger. Some of the same ills that older humans suffer from can affect our pets: arthritis, diabetes, (and certain cancers and tumors are more common in dogs or cats as they age). In this episode, we will explore ways that you can be better prepared to give your pets the best care possible in their golden years, and to keep them healthy as long as possible. So please tune in to our June 26th episode at 5PM, CST on The Missy Show.
