Passages in Caregiving

Hour 1: What do we really need to know to be responsible caregivers for loved ones and friends? We’ll talk this hour with Gail Sheehy who writes about successfully navigating the 8 stages of caring in her book “Passages in Caregiving: Turning Chaos into Confidence” (Harper Paperbacks, 2011) which is now out in paperback.

    Gail is absolutely right about using a professional caregiver!  I tried caring for my mother myself for three years and it was not good for my life, my marriage, or my children.  Certified caregivers are a must.  We now use Arbor Home Care in Dallas.  http://www.arborhomecare.com.

    You might also let your audience know that almost all national major health insurance companies have case management services available free as a part of their plan.  One needs to only call the customer service number on the back of their membership card to find out if they have it.

    Oh I’m one of the sick people.  A little over a year I got diagnosed with isolated left ventricular non compaction.  And the prognosis is 5 years.  That can be extended with a heart transplant.  That is pretty scary for a 43 yr old man w/o health insurance.  And going through all that has been very stressful.
