Jack Tatar speaks to Diana Denholm, author of The Caregiver’s Handbook about the challenges of caregiving. In this powerful audio, Diana discusses her experiences being a caregiver to her husband. Through this experience, Diana provides advice for each and every person who is either an existing caregiver or potentially in the role of being a future caregiver.
Diana writes the following about her book, “When we are with loved ones who are dying, the day-to-day matters of your role in their care, your previous roles, your own self-care, your ongoing lives, household management, sleep, sex and intimacy, changes in and strains on your marriages, and current and future finances are all right in your face. Practical issues continue that require action on your part. Some require important communication between you and your loved ones or other family members. Which issues should you discuss or shouldn’t you discuss with your loved one? How do you sort out these issues? And then, how should you handle the issues themselves?”
In this audio, Jack and Diana have an extended conversation as part of Jack’s podcast series, ‘A Safe Retirement’ about Diana’s book and the topic of caregiving. It’s a MUST hear for those concerned with caregiving. Please listen to it here:
