LANCE A. SLATTON: Senior Care Influence & Author of The All Home Care Matters Official Family Caregivers' Guide

Heeeeeeee’s back! And Don and I couldn’t be happier!  Our dear friend and “Senior Care Influencer”, Lance A. Slatton is not only a Writer, Author, and Healthcare professional with over 20 years in the healthcare industry…he is a number one class act and all around nice guy! Oh, and he is also the busiest person I have ever met! I thought I was juggling. Nope. Apparently not. ;)

In case you’re not familiar with Lance, here’s just little background on this Care Commander: Lance is a native of Michigan, and the Senior Case Manager at Enriched Life Home Care Services, a leading care provider.  His ingenuity and fortitude led to the creation of  All Home Care Matters, an informative podcast and YouTube show devoted to helping families, caregivers, and their loved ones navigate long-term care issues. All Home Care Matters was recently the recipient of the Silver Creator Award from Google & YouTube.

Lance also produces and Co-Host’s two additional shows (I know! What are we doing wrong!?): Conscious Caregiving with L & L, co-hosted by Lori La Bey and The Caregiver’s Journal with Denise M. Brown.

If that were not enough, he also writes a monthly column for McKnight’s Home Care News, DailyCaring.com, and AgeBuzz.

Recognizing Lance’s contributions to the industry, he was named a “50 Under 50” honoree by the New York City Journal for 2023  and has been chosen as a Juror for the Academy of Interactive Visual Arts for 2023 and 2024.

And because he apparently has so much spare time on his hands Lance has now authored a new book, “The All Home Care Matters Official Family Caregivers' Guide”, a beacon of wisdom, meant to guide you through the complexities and emotional tides of becoming a caregiver.  So, grab a cuppa tea or coffee and find out more about this new endeavor and everything else in the wild world of the inimitable Lance A. Slatton. 

And remember -  Love is Powerful. Love is Contagious. And Love Conquers Alz.
xoxo Susie

DR. MITCH CLIONSKY - Dementia Prevention: Using Your Head to Save Your Brain
MAR 11, 2024
DR. MITCH CLIONSKY - Dementia Prevention: Using Your Head to Save Your Brain

Don and I both agree that Episode 85 (wow!), ranks as one of our favorites to date. Our amazing guest, Dr. Mitchell Clionsky is a board certified neuropsychologist with more than 30 years of clinical experience and has treated more than 20,000 patients with cognitive problems. Dr. Clionsky understands the toll of memory disorders as both a caring professional and as the son of his mother Muriel, who died in 2008 from dementia.
 
Dr. Clionsky holds staff privileges on four hospitals and in addition to dementia, he evaluates ADHD, concussions, and a variety of neurological conditions. From years of patient data, Dr. Clionsky and his wife/partner Emily Clionsky, MD have developed the Memory Orientation Screening Test or MOST, a highly valid measure that provides a single, numerical score that reflects cognitive status and change over time. MOST helps identify -cognitive problems- earlier in the deterioration process so health professionals can intervene and help their patients live better lives.
 
Now Dr. Clionsky and his wife, Emily, have taken what they do in their consulting room and have written a new book,
Dementia Prevention: Using Your Head to Save Your Brain. It's an exciting, fun to read, motivating, and potentially life changing read that is the culmination of 45 years of extensive clinical evaluation and treatment. Scientifically detailed and vetted by Johns Hopkins University doctors and content experts, it is translated into terms that almost everyone will understand.

8 out of 10 people over 55 say that Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are a major concern. Well now there is something that can be done. Dementia is not inevitable, but for 1 out of 2 people it is preventable. And we are so excited to share all about this fascinating breakthrough. Enjoy!!

CHRISTINA KEYS: Turning a Mess into a  Powerful Message

CHRISTINA KEYS: Turning a Mess into a Powerful Message

If you don't know  the preeminent caregiving champion, Christina Keys, you're in for a valuable treat! Christina was living her best life, enjoying a successful career, she was financially and spiritually healthy and happy -  when in 2013 her beloved mother suffered a devastating stroke and was given a 1% chance to live. In a blink of an eye Christina went from care-free career woman to full-time caregiver. With Christina’s dogged and loving support, her mother survived - but after 4 years Christina was bankrupt, financially, emotionally, mentally, and physically. And suddenly she was faced with a diagnosis of her own. Her body was shutting down from the stress and she was given 6 months to live. She knew she had to completely change her life…and she did. But she decided to not only transform her own life, but to help change the lives of other caregivers.  
Christina’s mission to make sure caregivers everywhere are seen, heard valued and appreciated and are never alone through her local work with Loving Them Forward , the Non Profit she founded, and the national work she is doing as the Director of Community Growth at Caregiving.com.  We can’t wait for you to hear more about her remarkable transformation and journey!
