Short Radio Interview: Advocating for Your Loved One in a Facility; Challenging the Stereotypes of Alzheimer's Disease
This past Saturday I was interviewed on the radio show "Journey Through Aging" with Joel Wrobbel, the Marketing Director at Westminster-Thurber Community in Columbus, Ohio, and an Eden Alternative Associate. We're both passionate about culture change in elder care, and we talked about a number of topics in 2 very short segments:
Part I (12 min.): How to Advocate for Your Loved One in a Facility; Lessons I learned about transitions in care; and How "Inside the Dementia Epidemic: A Daughter's Memoir" is different from other caregiving memoirs
Part II (9 min.): Seeing Alzheimer's differently, not as a "Long good-bye" but as a "Long Hello"; Challenging the stigma of dementia; Key advice for new caregivers
