    Caregiving Challenges Discussion with Dr. Mike Wasserman

    Caregiving Challenges Discussion with Dr. Mike Wasserman

    In this episode, we discussed that employees with older parents may not anticipate the challenges as caregivers to fully prepare for the unexpected time off.   There is no playbook for someone entertaining the caregiving phase. The cost to employers is very high.  Dr. Mike Wasserman shares insights both as a physician and his personal stories of caregiving. 

    A quote -“if you treat your parents as children, you are going to have a hard time”. Most people are not taught to be caregivers and often don’t anticipate the enormity of the job. 

    Bio:  Dr. Wasserman co-founded Senior Care of Colorado, which became the largest privately-owned primary care geriatric practice in the country, demonstrating that high-quality primary care could be delivered to seniors in a cost-effective manner. Senior Care of Colorado was sold to IPC, The Hospitalist Company in 2010. Dr. Wasserman is passionate about educating others on how geriatric medicine can function effectively in today's healthcare environment. Dr. Wasserman was the CEO of Rockport Healthcare Services, overseeing the largest nursing home chain in California. He was the President and Chief Medical Officer for GeriMed of America, a Geriatric Medical Management Company located in Denver.  He graduated from the University of Texas, Medical Branch, and completed an Internal Medicine residency at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and a Geriatric Medicine Fellowship at UCLA. He spent five years with Kaiser-Permanente in Southern California where he opened Kaiser's first Geriatric Consult clinic. He is an active member of the American Geriatric Society for thirty years. From 2000-2004, he was a Public Commissioner for the Continuing Care Accreditation Commission.  He co-chaired Colorado's Alzheimer's Coordinating Council and serves on the boards of the Wish of a Lifetime Foundation, The Foundation for Health in Aging, and CALTCM (California Association for Long Term Care Medicine). Dr. Wasserman has spoken extensively and been published on a variety of topics involving Geriatrics, Alzheimer’s Disease, Practice Management, and Managed Care.

    Educational Therapy Conversation with Bibinaz Prayesh

    Educational Therapy Conversation with Bibinaz Prayesh

    “I have been doing education therapy for 12 years and yet quite I often come across kids who make me think, I’ve Never Done This Before; each child is unique, each case is unique and never done before”- Bibinash Pirayesh

    My absolutely fascinating conversation with Bibi.  I learned so much, not only about parent’s guilt, about not know how to help, lack of sensitivity, the social injustice for kids with learning differences.  Your child’s  “C’ grade doesn’t represent his/ her inability to learn, perhaps you ought to look at changing the teaching style. 

    Bibinaz Pirayesh is an educational therapist & consultant specializing in educational assessments, program design, and coaching and advocacy for neuro-diverse children. Bibi holds a Master's in Developmental Psychology from Columbia University, a Bachelor's in Neuroscience and Education from the University of Pittsburgh, and a doctorate degree from Loyola Marymount University.  Bibinaz is the founder of The Learning Tree.

    Professional Wellbeing for Parents in the Workplace with Heidi Pancake.

    Having spent 22 years in corporate America, I can’t say I’ve ever had a chance to speak candidly with an HR professional about effective communications with management about work/life balance or my rights as a mom to take time for parenting.   Here is your chance to hear what I learned about how to have a conversation from VP of Human resources at Leaf Group, a publicly held company.  Heidi helped me understand the role of HR, how it’s evolved over time, and what one can and should expect as an employee in these situations as well as how the employer sees it. She was truly a pleasure to speak with.
