 Medication Management Conversation with Simple MedsSM on the Senior Care Corner® Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 18:30

Medications taken incorrectly can reduce their effectiveness or, worse, can be dangerous and even deadly. More than half of seniors take their medications incorrectly, at least from time to time if not every day, according to estimates we’ve heard. That’s understandable, since half are taking at least two prescription drugs in addition to a variety […]

 Elder Orphans — Raising Family Caregiver Awareness on the Senior Care Corner® Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 29:14

Millions of older adults receive care and support from loved ones. For many, it’s those family caregivers who enable them to age in place successfully.

 Transforming Family Caregiving — Conversation with Seniorlink on the Senior Care Corner® Podcast | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 28:26

Family caregiving, as we have long discussed, is often a thankless, solitary labor of love for those providing care for senior loved ones. The tremendous contributions of family caregivers have likewise failed to get their deserved recognition from the healthcare system or government agencies and officials. None of that ruffles family caregivers, of course, as […]

 Healthcare Decisions Day: Have You Faced the Elephant in the Room? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 25:57

End of life healthcare care is something about which most adults have heard and even considered. Most have not taken past the "thinking about it" stage, however. Enter National Healthcare Decisions Day, an effort to inspire us to make our decisions and healthcare providers to honor them.

 Conversation with Health Tech Innovator MOCACARE on the Senior Care Corner® Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 26:19

Technology with the potential to help our seniors live healthy, safe, and comfortable lives is something for which Senior Care Corner® is always on the lookout to keep family caregivers informed.

 Tablet Tailored to Seniors’ Needs – Conversation with grandPad on the Senior Care Corner® Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 30:26

Technology that connects seniors to their families, friends, healthcare providers, and the world around them is increasingly important to successful aging in place. For many seniors, that technology will be the same smartphones, tablets and computers used by younger generations. Others, though, have needs best met by devices that are safe, secure, and straightforward to use. […]

 Interview with an Audiologist for Better Hearing & Speech Month – Senior Care Corner Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 28:00

Isolation, depression and other issues are faced by seniors who live with uncorrected hearing loss. A third of seniors have a hearing impairment, according to the National Institutes of Health. Unfortunately, many go undiagnosed because the seniors either don’t realize they have a loss, don’t want to admit it, or don’t want — or don’t think […]

Enabling senior loved ones to enjoy lives that are healthy, safe and comfortable is the mission of their family caregivers. Important to that is helping them live with self respect and dignity.

 Enabling Caregivers and Seniors Themselves “To Know Me” on the Senior Care Corner® Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 29:00

Long-established habits, routines, likes and dislikes are common in senior adults.

Knowing those would be key to getting the personalized, compassionate care family members want for senior loved ones who live in senior […]

Choosing the right nursing home to be the next home for a senior loved one is a stressful process for family caregivers.

 Talking Senior Hunger with the National Council on Aging on the Senior Care Corner Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 37:51

4.8 million senior adults in the US face food insecurity. Is it possible your senior loved ones are included in that number without you realizing it? How would you know? If they are, what could you do to help them? Senior hunger is an issue of emphasis for us at Senior Care Corner® because it […]

 Seniors & Dogs: Conversation with a Pet Expert on the Senior Care Corner Show | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 34:33

Seniors and dogs can be a great combination, especially for those seniors aging in place on their own.
