Keep a look for this
I will be interviewing Teepa Snow and she will be interviewing me.
We will ask each other the hard questions to each other and nothing is off limits.
Do you have any questions I should consider? This will be two-hour show. None of this is planed and she will not know until I ask her.
Why do so many caregivers say they feel guilty when they place their LO into a care facility? I think it is anticipatory grief. Guilt is about doing something wrong. Providing the best available care is not wrong, it is a blessing.
So far, I will use one of the questions here. Thanks for your
input. Still looking for others.
Michael, this sounds like a great thing. She is excellent, and you provide input from the patient's perspective. Hopefully this will be made into a video that can be accessed on youtube or on her site. Is that the plan?
I have one question that some (most?) of us will likely encounter at some time during this caretaking process. When the patient becomes fecal incontinent, and they are still fully aware of what is happening, how can the caretaker involve himself/herself into helping with the bathroom process when the patient is fighting it tooth and nail?
She has actually has spoken about that. You may be able to find
that online for free. She does offer some free classes on her website. Good idea about the video. I will ask the person
today if that is part of their process. I think they will have two versions.
There will be a live audio for the radio show and a separate zoom
recording of what is said on the radio scheduled after mid-January.
