Show #47: Grief & Loss

Show #47: Grief & Loss

This Sunday on Radio 4 the Ages, Heather and Matt speak with Larry Dawalt (Senior Director of Spiritual & Grief Care Services – Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region) about grief and loss.  We learn how people can experience grief and loss differently, especially the losses that many senior adults face as they age.  We talk about what people close to those grieving can do to help and how to listen and inspire hope.   We also hear from David, and his son David, via phone to talk about his visit to Albuquerque, NM to watch his son be promoted from  Captain to Major in the United States Air Force.  To learn more about grief and loss, experiences we will all face at some point in our lives, tune in to Radio 4 the Ages.

Radio 4 the Ages - Jennefer Garrity - Marilyn Morenz

Show #29: Elder Law & Being Prepared

Show #29: Elder Law & Being Prepared

This Sunday Jennefer Garrity (Co-founder of Garrift & Gossage, LLP) and Marilyn Morenz (of Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region) joined the Radio 4 the Ages team to discuss advanced healthcare and financial planning.   The key take-away from our discussion seemed to be that the earlier we start planning, the better off we and our loved ones will be.  We talked about healthcare power of attorney, advanced directives, financial power of attorney, and several other forms that we can have in place to reduce the burden on our loved ones and clear up a lot of confusion that can arise in the event of a life-changing incident.  To find out more, tune in!

Radio 4 the Ages - Larry Dawalt - John Lincourt - Aging with Dignity - Hospice and Palliative Care Charlotte Region

Show #20: Aging with Dignity

Show #20: Aging with Dignity

This Sunday, the Radio 4 the Ages team was pleased to have guests Larry Dawalt (from Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region) and John Lincourt (specializing in Biomedical Ethics and Philosophy).  This show was dedicated entirely to discussing “aging with dignity”.  We  discuss, in depth, what it means to have dignity later on in life and even discover that there is more than just one type of dignity.  We also learn some helpful information about how to better care for our aging loved ones and to be more aware of treating them with dignity.  If you or a loved one have been wondering about how to age with dignity, this is the show for you!  We hope our show will shed light on a topic that almost everyone will be presented with at some point in their life.  Stay Informed, Involved, Active, and Listened To.

Show #10:  Life, Cancer, and Hospice

We come back from our Thanksgiving holiday to a show that hits close to home for so many people: cancer.  In our first segment, we’re joined in studio by authors Lynnsy Logue (Tongue Cancer and My Organic Cotton Socks) and Josephine Hicks (If There’s Anything I Can Do…What You Can Do When Serious Illness Strikes).  We dive into the subject of cancer from two perspectives.  One from Lynnsy Logue, and another from our guest Josephine Hicks who lost a partner to pancreatic cancer.  Krissa Palmer gives us another great segment of her Senior Moments before we transition to our second half of the show with Hospice & Palliative Care Charlotte Region guests Marilyn Morenz and Laura Fitzpatrick.
