Show #87: Elder Abuse Awareness, Caregiving, and Father’s Day Memories

Show #87:


Pastor Donny Edwards and his spouse (my eldest daughter) Rachel Leanne Gwilt-Edwards were my only guests on the show today. We had a far ranging discussion on elder abuse, including Rachel’s sometimes painful memories of her Grandmother’s abuse at the hands of her two sons- Rachel’s uncles. If you see abuse, call the appropriate authorities. You can remain anonymous, and you can help protect those among us who are less able to care for themselves!

We also shared some thoughts about our Dads on Father’s Day. And we included a reminder that Dads come in many forms; biological fathers, step-fathers, adoptive fathers, fill in dads of all types, and many more men who are there to help guide young people to a more productive and rewarding life.

And finally, we shared some thoughts on caregiving and caregiver burnout with a caller who had some very kind words to share about Radio 4 the Ages. We thank him for his call, his concern, and his interest in improving the lives of all of our loved ones.

Enjoy, and Happy Father’s Day !
