"We caregivers are often one broken leg away from this thing turning into a Greek Tragedy." 

Life insurance is a big part of our journey as caregivers, but what about if something happens to us that compromises our ability to serve as caregivers?  Can we make that life insurance policy work for us while we serve as caregivers?  

Jerry Garrett  (855)-422-1522 called the show to discuss AFFORDABLE options for caregivers to provide a bit of extra peace of mind as we journey down the often hazardous path of caregiving.

Michele Shulman of the Nathan Group called the show to share about this extraordinary resource for caregivers.  Think about all the issues you run into as a caregiver such as:

  • Power of Attorney
  • Will/Living Will
  • Filing for disability
  • Disputing Medical Bills

Now, think about other issues that come up like:

  • Traffic Tickets
  • Business structures
  • Compliance issues

Imagine the legal fees involved in those type of things. How would you like access to a top law firm to help you sort through all those and so many more issues for $24.95 per month?

Joni Eareckson Tada called the show to discuss Senate Bill 693 and its implications on the disabled and elderly.  Gracie joined Joni for this interview and the two women shared their powerful testimonies of facing a combined 85+years of suffering and severe disabilities.  They both struggled with wanting to end their lives when originally facing a lifetime of challenges.  Intercepting those horrific feelings and difficulties, key friends and family spoke life to both young women (they were both 17-years-old when they had their accidents. ). 

Joni expressed concern when she stated, “Our problem (Gracie’s and Joni’s) was not that our injuries were life-threatening.  Our problem was depression.  Discouragement."

Gracie asked of this bill and those who would implement it, “Are you going to provide them hope—or are you going to provide them drugs to slowly, stealthily euthanize them?”

Adding further, Joni stated, “The new language in this bill does not require hospice patients to be terminally ill to receive life-ending drugs—lethal doses of medication.  And that is entirely new for our country.  All of the rest of the physician assisted suicide bills across the United States require a person to be terminally ill.  But here, in Senate bill 693, you don’t have to be terminally ill to receive a lethal dose of medication.  You can just be disabled. You just be too old.  You could be just too depressed. And this is what alarms those of us who work against elder abuse and [work in] disability advocacy. We want to clear up that language. We want to make certain this bill does not pass.  Let’s get rid of the fraud and waste and abuse in the Medicare system and in the federal hospice program before we pour, ‘…good money after bad.’”

The challenges of dementia don't simply stop at forgetfulness. Virtually every area of a dementia patient's life feels the impact of this heartbreaking condition—including eating. Due to dementia, mealtimes that once served as a time of fellowship for families, instead become flash points for frustration and heartache.

Each month on my show, Hope for the Caregiver, I invite dementia care expert, Tracey Maxfield, BSN, to call in from British Columbia and share tips with our audience. We recently tackled the challenging issue of eating that so many families caring for a loved one with dementia face.
