I am so pleased to be invited to be invited back to Joni Aldrich’s Caregiving S.O.S. show on Wednesday, August 1st, at 11AM PDT, 2PM EDT, www.W4WN.com

About Joni Aldrich: Joni has been a caregiver on the front line with two terminal cancer patients–her husband and mother. That’s why caregiving is so important to her. Caregiving S.O.S. covers pertinent topics to help caregivers, who are usually not trained or prepared for the difficult role they undertake. She is the author of 6 books on surviving cancer, caregiving, brain illness and grief. For more information you can go to www.jonialdrich.com and http://www.linkedin.com/pub/joni-aldrich/14/a1a/9b

Joni’s other company is Basket of Care.com. This isn’t your ordinary gift basket. With her wonderful basket designer–Carol Taylor, a cancer survivor–she provides gift baskets that can be sent to those going through a life crisis with PRACTICAL gifts that they can use, such as pill organizers, blankets, flashlights to light the way, my books, thank you notes, slipper socks–the list goes on.

Have a kind and respectful day.

It is important that you have a voice in your life and health decisions even if you have a cognitive impairment. Who will speak for you if you are sick or injured? What should this person tell the doctor? What else do people need to know to make sure you get the care you need and deserve? Listen in and get your questions answered.

Have a kind and respectful day.

What is The Caregiver’s Path Community?
The Caregiver’s Path Community is a place to have a deeper conversation about what matters to you, what you worry about, and what you need help with. It is an online community of people who are going through what you are going through. Viki understands how difficult it is for caregivers to get out of the house to get the support they need. This is why she has created this place where you can go in the middle of night and say your truth and know that someone is listening and understands.

This is about your life. You matter too!

The Caregiver’s Path Community is where you get your “emotional insurance.”
It is a safe, private, supportive, educational and compassionate place for both family and professional caregivers.

What are caregivers talking about in the Discussion Forum right now?
“I think it is time to take my husband’s car keys away but how do I say it to him?”
“I am taking care of my mom and she just said the sweetest thing.”
“I am really overwhelmed right now and my family isn’t helping.”
