    Sep 12, 2014 | 53 min
    Did your loved one take their pills today? The right ones? On time? OR, did you have to repeat those frightening words, “Oops! I Forgot. I Don’t Know.”? It is too easy lose count. We take so many pills. Pills to feel better. Pills to feel better from the first pills. Pills once a day. Pills three times a day. Pills four times a day.We take some pills with meals, some before meals, some on an empty stomach, and some only when the relatives are coming over (well, maybe not – but there should be). It is so, so, so confusing. Isn't it? My special guest can help. Anne Cordes is the Clinical Pharmacist at the AgeWell Center for Senior Health at Baptist Medical Center. You have heard me talk about ...

  • caregiver stress got you on the edge?

    Aug 15, 2014 | 53 min
    Do you remember my main message? I ask you and all caregivers to take care of yourselves. I understand. Sometimes it is hard. It is difficult to choose yourself over your loved one. Do you need some inspiration? My special guest will encourage you. Joyce Delifus is a caregiver, just like you. But Joyce had worked her way to the notorious “edge”, about to fall off that cliff. She was a full-time caregiver for her mother. She also worked full-time. Her family wasn't helping. Her own health was failing. (Oh! Dear. Does any of this sound too familiar?) Joyce found an answer. With uncharacteristic advice from her doctor, and, later, help from a new friend at the YMCA, Joyce took control, helped h...

There were days she just wanted to run away from all her responsibilities, head south on I-95, and live out her fantasy escape as a waitress in the Keys! (What is your fantasy escape?) Like you, Carol also enjoyed the jo...
