Guest: Janice Lynch Schuster co-authored the award winning book: Handbook for Mortals: Guidance for People Facing Serious Illness. She is senior writer for the Center for Elder Care and Advanced Illness. The primary goal? To make it safe to grow old! Janice has also petitioned the Obama Administration to: “Create a Caregiver Corps that would include debt forgiveness for college graduates to care for our elders. More than 60 million Americans are family caregivers. They face challenges. Health suffers. Finances suffer. Families suffer. Aging Boomers will overwhelm our caregiving resources. Let’s create a Caregiver Corps that would marry college debt forgiveness with programs that place recent graduates with families and aging services providers. Let’s bridge the generational divide that promotes ageism.” (For a copy of this interview go to, click on Joni Aldrich, episode 9/25/13) Listen to Joni live M-F at 2:00 p.m. ET on To learn more about Joni, go to
