Radio 4 the Ages - 8-12-12 - Grief and Loss

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.

Show #38: Legal Aid of North Carolina

Show #38: Legal of Aid North Carolina

Legal advice and guidance is something that many senior adults may feel is out of their financial reach. This weekend on Radio 4 the Ages, we had Shazia Keller (Staff Attorney with Legal Aid of NC) as a guest.  We talked about some of the great free resources available from Legal Aid of NC for those that qualify.  Of those resources, we talked primarily about the toll-free Senior Law Helpline (1-877-579-7562) which can provide help in areas such as housing law, consumer law, employment law, public benefits, and civil law.  If you are interested in learning about what legal resources may be available for your or your loved ones, tune in!

This Sunday on Radio 4 the Ages, we had two great guests from the Upper Palmetto Chapter of the American Red Cross.  We talked about the fantastic work that the volunteers at the American Red Cross do for communities.  They do things ranging from helping families after a disastrous house fire to supporting emergency personnel during a natural disaster and even providing an easy way for folks to give blood to those who are in desperate need of it.  We also talked about how volunteering with the American Red Cross is a great way for retirees to stay active and involved in their community.
