ADD FOR LONG BIO:
The mission of his Radio Show is to help Caregivers overcome adversity, the grief process, and burnout — as well as just having a place to rest, relax & recharge their batteries. He interviews actual caregivers, who have become experts in their field, because they have not only figured out how to survive caregiving, but also to thrive.
Typical Interview questions:
- How did you get started in all of this caregiving stuff?
- Tell me about the radio show?
- What are some of the books you have written?
- So, how does a caregiver avoid burnout?
- Explain the grief process?
- How can a caregiver avoid always feeling guilty?
- How can caregivers who say they have no help — get help?
- Is government help available to caregivers?
- What do you offer caregivers through your support package?
- What is the best way to join your team of support?
How we help caregivers:
- We help them to see, logically and emotionally, that if they don’t put their needs above their loved one’s, they will both suffer.
- We also help them to see that when they are in a negative, complaining mode, the solutions to their problems are hidden from their creative self
- We show them why they need to surround themselves with positive, healthy people who will challenge and help them to be positive, and brainstorm solutions to their needs and problems.
- Many caregivers KNOW they are burned out, but they don’t know what to do about it or where to find help.
- Because I was where they are. I know what they are thinking and how they are feeling. I too was burned out. I too felt like giving up. I too, isolated myself. And I was able to not only survive caregiving, but I am thriving, and I want to show them how they can also.
- Popular Misconceptions: That caregivers have no time to take care of themselves, and nothing they try will work for them. That their lives are hopeless, and that “this” will NEVER end!
- Caregivers often seem to have enough time and energy to complain (and that does takes a lot of time and energy). They don’t think that they are worth spending money on themselves because they don’t deserve it. They will do everything for others, but NOTHING for themselves. They are plagued with low self-worth and low self-image. They often have a cheapskate mentality, pinching pennies, throwing away dollars vegging in front of the TV while their loved one sleeps, instead of planning that new business, or calling a friend for dinner and a movie, etc. Now not every caregiver does this, but most of them waste time on having a negative mindset.
