From the college admissions scandal, thought to be the largest prosecuted in the U.S., to Paul Manafort’s sentencing and Citizens United, we’re seeing the tip of an iceberg regarding the wealthy in America’s cheating and lying behaviors to gain even greater privilege and control.
JOIN Barb and John as they discuss Scandals and Corruption.
Joining the show during the second hour is bestselling author and Senior Care Specialist Karen Owen-Lee. Karen will be discussing her latest book, Caregiving While Keeping Your Job.
The hospital calls while you’re at work and your parent or loved one has fallen and broken his or her hip. Do you leave or stay on the job? Who do you call for help? Will you lose your job if you leave? Your family intended to write a list of your loved one’s directions and wishes, but now you are all alone to deal with the crisis.
Six out of ten caregivers are full-time employees who are caught between fear and anxiety for their loved one and the fear of getting fired from their job.
The stress and hours spent providing care result in employees who are emotionally drained, late to work, and absent from work altogether.
- The secrets to managing parent’s finances, legal, and medical matters.
- How to determine how much leave time you’ll need to assess your senior’s condition and needs.
- Informative ways to conduct sensitive talks with senior family members.
- How to include other family members by creating a Family Action Plan to care for your aging family member.
- Optional ways for employers to examine hidden lost revenues for excess leave requests.
- How to plan for a future that will allow you to be a caregiver while staying employed.
- How to communicate the situation to management at work.
