HANDYPRO: ADAPTING A HOME FOR A PATIENT’S NEEDS WITH AN EYE ON SAFETY
My guest is Robert Gurinowitsch with HandyPro, a franchise whose mission is to provide professional handyman service with a focus on independent living for people with in-home care needs. They do home modifications to keep loved ones enjoying their families and maintain their quality of life. Their focus is to find the products that meet your needs, meet ADA guidelines, and keep the patient and caregiver safe at home and as comfortable as possible. They are experts who think “outside of the box”—instead of huge modifications to your home, they try to help you find the easiest and best solutions by offering adaptive equipment.
THE IMPORTANCE OF COUNSELING SUPPORT FOR THE CANCER FAMILY
My very special guest is Ben Weast (MA, LPC, NCC, CT), a medical family therapist at the Duke Cancer Institute, Duke University Hospital. Ben provides counseling support to patients, their family members, and caregivers primarily with lung cancer, head/neck cancer, sarcoma, or melanoma. It takes a village to survive cancer, and Ben represents part of that village—offering critical support during the hardest times imaginable—no matter what the outcome may be. Ben has offered support to hundreds of cancer families at Duke, including my own family when we walked that difficult terminal lung cancer path.
TERRI CORCORAN: WIFE OF A DEMENTIA PATIENT AND BOARD MEMBER OF WELL SPOUSE
Terri’s story from my book: Understanding with Compassion: Help for Loved Ones and Caregivers of a Brain Illness Patient: “My husband is severely impaired cognitively and physically by a genetic condition similar to Alzheimer’s in that it attacks the brain. He has had this illness for our whole eleven-year marriage, although I was unaware at the beginning that anything was wrong until things got worse and worse. He says very little, and can’t do very much. But once in a while, I do get my miracles by God’s grace and lots of prayer. I love him with all of my heart and know he loves me, because one of the very few things he will ever say to me is: ‘I love you.’” Terri is on the board of the Well Spouse Association, which educates health care professionals and the general public about the special challenges and unique issues “well” spouses face every day.
