Show #40: NC BAM!

Joining Radio 4 the Ages this Sunday were Gail Engle and Jim Edminson from NC BAM (North Carolina Baptist Aging Ministry).  We learned about how NC BAM reaches out to communities and senior adults to help match individuals in need with those who can provide resources and services.  They are filling this gap through volunteerism and practical ministries.  To learn more about NC BAM, tune in!

Another Sunday morning, another packed studio, and another great broadcast of Radio 4 the Ages.  Joining along David, Matt, and Heather in the studio today were Marsha McElroy (from the Department of Social Services in Charlotte), Dawn Gartman (from Centralina Area Agency on Aging), Lynn Ivey (of The Ivey), and Rampi Hijazin (of BrightStar).  David gives us his “dysfunctional discourse” this week on the Penn State scandal.  We talk with Marsha and Dawn about services available to senior adults in need of services, the impact a large aging generation will have on those services, and how important it is to plan for the challenges of aging.  We then speak with Lynn Ivey and Rampi Hijazin about the differences between adult day-care and homecare, as well as how both of their services compliment each other to lead to a better quality of life for caregivers and senior-adults.
