    Long Term Health and Dementia Care Demands Focused Improvement

    in Caregiving

    Our entire healthcare systems are in the midst of changes in the manner by which care is delivered and paid for.  Dementia care is exploding as the fastest growing silent pandemic of our time, placing this smack-dap in the center of this healthcare crises. Significant shifts focusing on the value and impact care provides over merely paying for services (without emphasis on effectiveness) are changing the healthcare landscape. Still, the medical community,  professional care providers and informal caregivers struggle to meet the continuing needs of those with dementia symptoms as well as their primary family caregivers due to a profound lack of dementia awareness.                        


    Tune in to hear our special guest, Rick Ingraham, as he and the Dementia Whisperer discuss solutions to this healthcare conundrum that is compounded when the patient is elderly or a resident within the long term care environment. Without changes there can be no innovation, collaboration or compromise.  Driving improvements in healthcare, as well as dementia care delivery, efficacy and efficiency demands nothing less.  


    Rick Ingraham is a leader in health industry insights & analytics and leverages his 35+ years of health leadership experience  to improve healthcare and manage cost. Call in and join the discussion that will push the boundaries of our thinking to arrive at actionable game plans for success. 


    This is a live call in talk show-call in as and join us as we engage in a thought provoking hour about improving the dementia care experience from a healthcare perspective.

    in Caregiving

    Building a Dementia-Friendly Community


    Join us this week for a ground-breaking discussion on how dementia is effecting our communities, our country and our world and how we as individuals can step forward and become the pioneering hub for solutions and change as the silent epidemic of dementia continues to expand. 


    This week our esteemed guest is Mr. Cary Rotter, Owner of Comfort Keepers in Memphis, TN, and one of the most savvy senior care professionals and politically aware business owners I have had the honor of working with.


    Building Dementia Friendly Communities should become a worldwide priority and must include a deeper understanding of this horrific medical condition from the perspective of those affected by dementia as well as the professional/family caregiver and the entire community. We will explore the barriers that people face in their community, how they and their caregivers would like to be engaged locally and the support/education everyone needs to empower them to do so. 


    We will be discussing how each community and is unique -from those residing in their own home to those in assisted living/memory care/skilled nursing, etc…all the way to promoting awareness of dementia in all shops, businesses and services so all owners, operators and staff demonstrate understanding and know how to recognize and assist in managing symptoms.


    You will not want to miss this critical episode aiming to provide guidance to areas looking to become dementia-friendly and to provide additional support for those already living with or caring for dementia to making our local communities and the world “dementia-friendly”.

    The Road Map to Senior Care

    in Caregiving

     


    Senior Care can be described as a wilderness of interconnected family decisions.  Often people find that they have crash-landed into that situation.  They ask such questions as “What do I do?  Where do I turn for help?”  The Road Map to Senior Care is the guiding light to help one negotiate the path to care.  This book examines all of the options available for the care of senior loved ones in a clear, conversational fashion.


    Author and our guest, Stephen Andriko, will provide expert analysis that affords the our listeners with a non-judgmental approach to navigate through the maze of confusion that surrounds this extremely sensitive subject.  He will explore various delivery means such as in-home care or out-of-home placement highlighting the differences between similar services.  Further, he will discuss average costs for the various alternatives and offer resources that can help along the journey.  The purpose of Mr. Andriko's  book and our discussion today is to minimize the effects that painful emotion can have on the decision process.


    Feel free to call in today and ask questions or get expert advice on your senior care journey.  Call 1-929-477-1393, join us live in the chat room, or download this episode and listen later at your convenience.

    in Entertainment

    This is Beyond the Airwaves: The Infinity Project, where we go beyond the mainstream media and tackle issues that don't seem so important to the major networks.

    So The Jungle Book dominated for a third straight week, doing nearly twice as much as all three new releases (Keanu, Mother's Day, and Ratchet & Clank). Of course, that dominance should end this week with Captain America: Civil War hitting the theaters. Also, it's May, meaning the public swimming pools will be opening, the weather's warming up (and in some cases getting toasty already), and the summer blockbuster season is practically here! We'll talk about what other movies to watch for this summer besides Captain America. We'll also cover other stories that got our attention over the weekend.

    Dr. Huntington Potter, of UC-Denver, Looks to Reverse Alzheimer's Trend

    in Caregiving

    With the American population living longer, Alzheimer’s disease is becoming more prevalent. According to a professor at the University of Colorado at Denver, about half of those older than 85, or 5.2 million people, suffer from the disease. The current cost to the American economy is about $220 billion a year.


    Our guest today is Dr. Huntington Potter, who works in the Department of Neurology and the Linda Crnic Institute for Down syndrome, said that if the disease could be delayed, even by five years, it would decrease the cost significantly.


    Dr. Potter recognizes that as humans age, various health problems arise, but Alzheimer’s is one of the most expensive conditions because it requires around-the-clock attention in the middle to late stages.


    Through their work, Potter and his colleagues at the Anschutz Medical Campus have discovered that people with Alzheimer’s have, over the course of their lives, developed Down-Syndrome-like cells throughout their bodies. These cells have three copies of Chromosome 21 rather than two. Those with Down syndrome, who are born with these cells, typically suffer Alzheimer’s in their 30s and dementia in their 40s


    Join us in this intriguing conversation of hope through Dr. Potters amazing research.  Call 929-477-1393 today, or download and listen later. You don't want to miss this!
