With Peter Rosenberger

Episodes

As anyone who’s moved knows, things can get lost or misplaced in the process. In our recent move to Southwest Montana, my scattered mind led me to drop my debit card in the parking lot of a grocery store in Bozeman. (Granted, I've got all this head ...and so little brain, but I'd like to think that I can normally keep from hurling my debit card to the ground.)

Meet the wonderful individual who found it, tracked me down, and returned it safely.  Her name is Kylie Stier and she is the business manager at Bozeman Lodge. 

You will love meeting her ...and learning more about this wonderful individual! 

Thank you Kylie - you saved me a LOT of headache, and are a breath of fresh air to meet in this world! 

"Live the way you choose - in style and comfort, surrounded by good friends and modern amenities in the beautiful Gallatin Valley. Bozeman Lodge is a warm and friendly community with a full range of amenities and a full schedule of social, educational and recreational opportunities."

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.’”

Henry and Sweet Tea

As caregivers, we often miss the simple things we can do that will improve our lives. While our circumstances may seem overwhelming, the way we push back doesn't have to be.  

Such is the case with Henry.  When his wife called the show and talked about her full-time caregiver, (her husband, Henry), I asked her to put him on the phone. 

Henry shared his weariness, so we delved into some basic things.  Turns out, Henry takes a pill to sleep at night. Yet, he drinks Sweet Tea into the evening.  

Sometimes, it's being willing to look at the simple things.  

Healthy Caregivers Make Better Caregivers.

From 9-29-2018. 

We opened the discussion to talk about feeling obligated and guilty when dealing with someone with an impairment.  When I stated, "'Honor your father and mother...' doesn't mean honoring Alzheimer's or any other impairment," it really struck a nerve.  

Listen to the callers ...and see how we helped them move to a safer place and become healthier caregivers. Poster_Podcast_B.jpg
