Caregivers – Who Loves Ya, Baby?


This week Lori and Stephen visit with Lydia Weisman, licensed clinical social worker at South Valley Regional Dialysis Center, and Kay Goeden, caregiver to her husband Omer who is on dialysis, to talk about the importance of the caregivers in our lives. We throw our hats in the air to all of you who help us take care of ourselves!

Listen with your favorite caregiver as we appreciate those who help us live healthier, happier lives. Taking care of loved ones can be a very difficult role. Sometimes we forget we’re all on the same side as we struggle through living with chronic illness. We’ll discuss the issues those who take care of us have to deal with and offer tips for caregivers to take care of themselves.

Tune the dial to your favorite online radio show as we dedicate this show to the ones we love. We couldn’t do it without you.

You can also listen to the podcast on iTunes.
