Imagine your loved one is fine one day, then is suddenly hospitalized for weeks and needs two years of recovery treatment. It’s happening to around 50,000 people a year in the U.S. alone, including the family of our special guest today, beloved actress Michael Learned who you know from shows like “The Waltons,” “Scrubs,” and more. She is joined by her nephew, Andy Kavoian to share the story of his brother, Nathan (www.gofundme.com/2hrvu877). Also joining us is Lindy Boone Michaelis, who was a founding member of Ryan’s Reach, a nonprofit designed to help individuals with brain injuries through recovery.
Free Offer: CareNotes pamphlet “Self-Care for Caregivers”
Offer Description: Most caregivers – both those professionally trained, and those given the role by circumstance-share a common trait. They tend to put the needs of others before their own. While this willingness for self-sacrifice can be seen as an admirable trait, it can also eventually wear down a person, making them unable to care for anyone. This CareNotes offers practiced tips for mental and physical self-care. But perhaps more importantly, it reminds caregivers that needing time for themselves is not selfish; rather, it is an absolute necessity for performing the job well. Written by Ralph P. Plumley, Th.M., C.T. (www.onecaringplace.com)
