A Caregiving 101 Lesson for Loved Ones of Those in Need
As millions of baby boomers become seniors, caregiving expenses have risen, facilities are limited, and more people are intent on “aging in place” in their own home. Dawn Worsley from The National Certification Council for Activity Professionals (NCCAP) and Scott Silknitter of Caregiving 101 offer valuable information about getting the right care for your loved one, whether you are providing care or hiring a caregiver. The NCCAP is a credentialing body which sets standards and criteria for those working to meet the leisure needs of those in their care; their goal is to make sure your loved ones receive the best home care.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
