Preferred Company 7-10-18: Dave Nassaney

Did you know that 30% of caregivers die before their loved ones do and 60% become sicker than the ones they care for and often eventually need a caregiver for themselves.  Today’s guest is Dave Nassaney.  Dave became a caregiver after his wife became paralyzed after a massive stroke, a life changing moment.   It was then he realized there are so many other caregivers feeling lost and alone and in a lot of pain.  He wanted to help ease their pain and encourage those caregivers not to give up, like he almost gave up.  Dave offers a guide to burnout and surviving grief: three huge mistakes that caregivers make that are actually detrimental.  What are they and why is it important?  Plus, what is his CARE formula and why Dave says there are a third of caregivers he can’t help.  Dave’s main point is caregivers don’t get the respect they should.   Your hosts of Preferred Company are Joel Markel, president and founder of Preferred Home Health Care and Nursing Services and Marianne Levy.   If you or a loved one need care, call 800 603 CARE (2273) or visit preferredcares.com.
