    Understanding Guardianship, Power of Attorney + More with Kate Lietz, MSW, LSW

    Understanding Guardianship, Power of Attorney + More with Kate Lietz, MSW, LSW

    This week we talk all about Guardianship, Power of Attorney, Long Term Care... and other "scary" and confusing terms that can come up when planning care for your loved one. All with the help of Kate, a social worker at the Penn FTD Center.

    But before that, we dive into our friend Keri's personal experience getting Guardianship for her father, Mark. We recorded this interview last fall, and in February, Mark passed away after a very long journey with FTD.

    We want to take a minute to acknowledge Keri for the amazing job she did caring for her dad...all while being a wife, raising her little kids and being a fierce FTD advocate. You're a superhero, Keri.

The best therapy at home

I found Remember me podcast shortly after my husband was diagnosed. As I listened to a few stories, I felt such relief to know that I was not alone in this terrible experience with FTD. With their charismatic personalities and soothing voices, Rachel and Maria helped me get through those early, rough days. This podcast is a “must listen” for anyone who has a loved one with FTD.

So needed..

So I stumbled on this almost exactly two years ago to the day. It was during a time when I was struggling, heartbroken and overwhelmed in my newfound role as a caregiver to my mom. My mom was young and I had never heard of FTD before. I even submitted a request to share my story. Maria and Rachel interviewed me, and my mom even made an appearance on camera. Even though it never aired in an episode, I appreciated the time to talk with two people who fully understood. I continued to listen, and those episodes carried me through those really difficult times. They also helped me find some joy throughout that journey. About 6 months after the the interview with them, my mom passed away. The grief episodes really were so relatable.

Apathy podcast

This podcast is so relatable! Thank you once again for sharing your stories, so those of us with loved ones with FTD do not feel so alone. This might be a place where if someone had a loved one who was newly diagnosed I would say start here! This was beautifully communicated….and probably one of the most difficult parts of FTD. Grateful for all your work!
