Radio 4 the Ages - 6-17-12 - Legal Aid of NC - Shazia Keller

Show #38: Legal Aid of North Carolina

Show #38: Legal of Aid North Carolina

Legal advice and guidance is something that many senior adults may feel is out of their financial reach. This weekend on Radio 4 the Ages, we had Shazia Keller (Staff Attorney with Legal Aid of NC) as a guest.  We talked about some of the great free resources available from Legal Aid of NC for those that qualify.  Of those resources, we talked primarily about the toll-free Senior Law Helpline (1-877-579-7562) which can provide help in areas such as housing law, consumer law, employment law, public benefits, and civil law.  If you are interested in learning about what legal resources may be available for your or your loved ones, tune in!

Show #37: The American Red Cross

Show #37:  The American Red Cross

This Sunday on Radio 4 the Ages, we had two great guests from the Upper Palmetto Chapter of the American Red Cross.  We talked about the fantastic work that the volunteers at the American Red Cross do for communities.  They do things ranging from helping families after a disastrous house fire to supporting emergency personnel during a natural disaster and even providing an easy way for folks to give blood to those who are in desperate need of it.  We also talked about how volunteering with the American Red Cross is a great way for retirees to stay active and involved in their community.

Radio 4 the Ages - 6-3-2012 - The Respite - Mandy Eppley - Lyndall Hare

Show #36: The Respite – A Centre for Grief & Hope

Show #36: The Respite – A Centre for Grief & Hope

This Sunday on Radio 4 the Ages, we spoke with two wonderful guests Mandy Eppley and Lyndall Hare, both from The Respite – A Centre for Grief & Hope.  Mandy tells about the beginnings of The Respite as well as what they do.  From their website:

In an atmosphere of dignity and respect for the grief process, The Respite helps people, regardless of socio-economic status, who have suffered a significant loss in any form to reclaim a healthy and productive life.  We provide a safe haven, a supportive community, and take a holistic approach that offers a variety of healing modalities (mind, soul and body) to empower individuals and families. Our vision is to shift how grief is viewed in the world – moving from shame and isolation to unveiling (or mining) grief’s transformative gifts. We welcome grief and provide hope for tomorrow.

We were so grateful to have them on our show this week to talk about all the great things they are doing.  Tune in, call in, and get involved!
