Richard Solar and Lyndall Hare, a self described ‘gypsy gerontologist’ join me on this very special program. Lyndall is an Eldercare Coach and an Aging Consultant. She is affiliated with The Respite, A Centre for Grief and Hope, in Charlotte, North Carolina. Richard Solar lost his spouse of 50 years just four months ago, and he graciously agreed to share his thoughts on the loss and recovery process that he is going through. Our hope is that Richard’s sharing of his experience may bring comfort to others who are or will someday be going through a similar experience.
Lyndall brings many years of her experiences working and assisting others with life issues to the program, and she offers her words of wisdom for Richard. This program exemplifies the mission of Radio 4 the Ages, to wit, “…to improve the quality of life of our senior adults by facilitating their ability to stay informed, involved, active and listened to.”
I’d appreciate hearing your reaction to this show, and others we have done, and if you would like to be a guest on one of my shows, please reach out to me.
Thanks for listening and for being a part of my journey through this experience.
In our fifth show, David gives us this weeks’ Dysfunctional Discourse concerning airport security, Cathy Smith gives us a call to check in, we hear a very personal story from David and his experience with a family member who had Alzheimer’s/Dementia. Our guests this show were Dr. Reza Bolouri, a leading Alzheimer’s/Dementia doctor, and Teresa Hoover, from the Alzheimer’s Association. We spoke with them about the symtoms of the disease, as well as new research and treatments of Alzheimer’s.
