Show #9: Senior Resources and Accessibility

Show #9: Senior Resources & Accessibility (click play to listen)

In this Sunday’s show we speak with Denise Bordeman and Julia Sain (both  of Disability & Rights) about the resources available to seniors, as well as people of all ages, who may have disabilities or their family members.  David talks about health insurance and how the lack of price-transparency can impact decisions individuals make in regards to their own healthcare in his weekly “dysfunctional discourse”.  We then speak with Brian Carney (of Silver Cross), Rick Griffiths (from AmRamp), and Carolyn Cook (of LiveSmart Design) about home modifications, how important home accessibility is to a senior-adults well-being, and what options may be available to them.

Upcoming shows

Okay, so sorry, I don’t write here as often as I should. I’ve been a bit busy with lining up guests, ‘training’ my two co-hosts, ‘Marauding Matt’ and ‘Heavenly Heather’ , and trying to secure future advertisers for the show! If you haven’t caught our show yet, do yourself a favor, and check out some of our offerings.

We have had several great guests and interesting shows. This week, November 13th, we’re doing a show on care giving. Marsha McElroy and Dawn Gartman will be on the first segment discussing programs that are available no or low cost in the community, and then Lynn Ivey, of The Ivey Adult Day Care along with Rampi Hijazin of Bright Star will join us to speak to private pay care giving, in home care, and  caretaker respite. We strive to provide our listeners with interesting, entertaining, informative shows that will facilitate their ability to stay informed, involved, active and listened to- that’s our mission at Radio 4 the Ages!

On November 20th, our guests will include Denise Bordeman and Julia Sain of the Disability and Rights organization, along with one or two ‘draft picks to be named later’!  On November 27th, Josephine Hicks, the author of “if there’s anything I can do”, and Lynssy Logue, author of “tongue cancer and my organic cotton socks” will be joined by some of the fine folks from Hospice and Palliative Care of the Charlotte Region. It will be a terrific program that you won’t want to miss. If you or a loved one have been touched by cancer or used the services of HPCCR, this is your chance to share a personal story with a phone call or e-mail. You can always reach me by e-mail at

Thanks for being a part of our efforts. We do this for you, so tune in, call in and get involved!  -david
