November 29th, 2010, the Monday following this Thanksgiving weekend, I will be interviewed at 2:00pmET by Susan Baida of eCareDiary on her popular weekly Empowering Family Caregivers BlogTalk Radio show.
TOPIC: Can I Survive as a Caregiver? And is it too much to ask for a sprinkle of JOY?
ANSWER: Question #1: Yes. Question #2: No.
Join us online or call in to ask questions or share your joyful experiences.
This will be a FUN and fast-paced 30-minute interview where I’ll share how
- my husband and I became caregivers–not recommended!
- we found ways to survive–it was close!
- we found the JOY–Hint: It’s in the little things!
We’ll make time for your questions; so “tune in” then CALL!
Throughout the show, you’ll receive three life-saving tips…YOU DO WANT TO SURVIVE caregiving, right? While surviving, wouldn’t it be nice to find a little joy?
You’ll also get a link to our complete TIPS page–an attractive one-page Caregiver TIPS sheet to remind you each day of what you need to do to Survive and Find the JOY.
For your family members who are still in denial about the sacrifices you make to provide quality care for your loved one, you’ll receive a link for a special offer that will strengthen and humor you and enlighten them.
