Conversations in Care
The Conversations in Care radio show was one I had the pleasure of being on in the past. Host Tami Neumann.
Tami Neumann is Executive Producer & Host
As a professional for over 20 years in the Senior Care Industry she has seen and experienced a lot. She realized that we unfortunately do not make it easy for patients and caregivers. Because of this realization she set out on a mission to discover the Hidden Gems in Wellness and provide listeners with the tools necessary to be successful as a caregiver, patient and care professional.
She looks for guests that can bring new and unique information, resources or perspectives. They often talk caregiving, dementia and type 1 diabetes. She is open to talking about the tough topics and looks for new guests all the time.
Every night before I go to sleep, I reflect on three things i am grateful for that day and then i pray. It has become a pretty engrained routine and encourage you to try it. Being grateful keeps us humble. And it helps us remember how good we really have it when we think about it. Today be aware of your activities, who you meet, and at the end of the day think about the things and the people you are grateful for today. It will become a habit.

65 is the new 40
This podcast is taken from a radio show I was a guest on in Chicago. It coincided with a TV show that was on at the time called Forever Young, a reality-based show that had older adults rooming with younger adults for many weeks. The lessons they taught each other were invaluable. And you soon come to realize that all generations can learn from each other and have something to offer. And indeed you learn that 65 is the new 40.
