Caregiving Like It Is

February 2, 2015

Honest caregiver talk Part 2 hits home.  Listen to this chat to overcome that isolated, overwhelmed feeling. Rebecca asks such probing questions.  I told it all.  Try to forget what has changed.  Don’t stew about the future.  Focus on the golden moments.  An inspiring estate sale around Mt. Tabor Park.  An artist who left behind an ink and white paper drawing.

Soothing Talk on Saturday Mornings

December 15, 2014

Rebecca’s words will flow over you like a relaxation tape.  You can close your eyes and just listen.  She talks about caregiving.  She knows a lot about taking care of people and so do her guests.  Her interviews with other caregivers are chats about their personal journeys through grief, loss and decision-making.

“Do what you love and do it with love” is the motto of Lifestyle Improvement Radio KLAY 1180.  It’s on at 8 AM Pacific Time on Saturdays, but the interviews are available anytime you have a few minutes.  My interview will air in January.
