    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.


    Join The Dementia Whisperer, co-host Scott Cluthe and our guest Stephen Andriko for an hour of essential advice, care advocacy and empathetic ears-we want to hear from YOU!

    Former Senior Policy Advisor at US Dept. of Education Karen Gross

    in Education

    The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Former Senior Policy Advisor at US Dept. of Education Karen Gross.


    Karen Gross has taught and continues to teach across the educational pipeline.  In spring 2016, she will be teaching at Bennington College in Vermont.  She writes, consults and advises on how to improve student success and has a forthcoming book from Columbia University Teachers College Press titled Shoulders to Lean On (Publication date: 2016) on this very topic.  A former college president and Senior Advisor to the U.S. Department of Education, she currently serves as Senior Counsel to Widmeyer Communications, a Finn Partners Company, and as an Affiliate to the Penn Center for MSI’s at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education. She blogs/writes for many education outlets including Huff Po, WPo, InsideHigherEd, Unplugged, DiverseEducation, Evollution, NAIS, and CollegeAD.


    Karen is proud that two high school seniors at the Emma Willard School have so ably illustrated the Lady Lucy story.  The book and the process of its creation provide a concrete example of the kind of deep collaboration that can occur in education, where the teacher is a learner, and the learners are teachers.  The illustrations, led by Lindsey Slaughter, a gifted art teacher, have made Lady Lucy and the story come alive.  The author and the two illustrators and their teacher see Lady Lucy as a symbol of the power of the possible that rests within all of us.


    Based on the true life of Lady Lucy Duff-Gordon, a leading 19th century fashion designer and survivor of the Titanic, Lady Lucy’s Quest brings vigor to the spirit of young girls everywhere. The illustrations contributed by high school students Ji Woo Jasmine Shin and So Young Jang, also shed light on the importance of empowering female youth.
