EFC: EP 28 - Interview with Dr. Nicole Rochester
I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Nicole Rochester on my Empowered Family Caregiver podcast. Hear how and why Dr. Nicole left her 17-year medical career to work with families on the receiving end of medical care. We had a great conversation about the importance of and how to empower family advocates. Dr. Nicole offers some serious value with specific phrases to use with medical care professionals to get their attention. She also shares valuable tips for working with the healthcare industry to help your loved one get the best care possible while you are in the ‘know’ about how health care really works.
During the "Take 5 With Tandy Round", hear Dr. Nicole’s advice on how to reduce caregiver stress, how she found her best during what seemed like her worst, what she is grateful for and her sage advice for keeping hope alive.
