Dementia: Navigating Later Life

Barbara Kirby On Navigating Later Life 

Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio

Thursday, January 25th, 2018, Lori La Bey, Host of Alzheimer’s Speaks Radio will interview Barbara Kirby who brings with her 25 years of experience in elder care and the study of aging. Through 15 years as a caregiver for her mom and dad, Barb was shocked to see how poorly seniors were treated. She was so impassioned that she left her lifelong investment career to start, “Seniors Advocate” which assists people by being a later life planner, navigator and advocate. Her primary goal is to educate people, so they don’t become vulnerable to the mistreatment many seniors unwittingly experience today.

An Important message from our friend Meryl Comer:

Only twice in my twenty plus years as an Alzheimer’s caregiver has a doctor ever asked whether I was doing okay. Yet my husband would have never made the clinic appointment on time if I had not gotten up extra early to bathe, dress, feed, manage his resistance and drive him there. Now here’s a chance to be heard!

Researchers from the Mayo Clinic want to learn what matters most to you when you go to the doctor with your loved one. They need volunteers for an online focus group who are current or former caregivers for a loved one with dementia.

Click here to learn more about this important Mayo Clinic caregiver study asking what matters to you when you go to the doctor with a loved one.

Study participants will be asked to join an online focus group and answer several questions over a week and a half posted by the moderator. Participants can choose to remain anonymous. Their goal is to help healthcare providers better support and communicate with caregivers by learning:

  • How health care providers can best help caregivers provide optimal care to loved ones while maintaining their own health.
  • How involved caregivers want to be their loved ones’ healthcare.
  • What the ideal “care team” looks like.

Please click here for more information about this important Mayo Clinic caregiver study.

Your opinions are critical to improving the experience for all caregivers when they accompany loved ones to doctor’s appointments. Let’s not miss this opportunity to make doctors tune into what matters to us.
