    Show 7 - Flu & Coronavirus Updates | Caring for the Elderly | Steve Love Wrap Up

    We begin with the Flu and Coronavirus with one of the top experts in North Texas, Dr. Trish Perl, Infectious Disease Specialist at Parkland Health & Hospital System and Head of Infectious Diseases at UT Southwestern Medical Center. Dr. Perl provides both context and insightful information into the status of both viruses.
    Dr. Charles Herlihy is a Psychiatrist with Medical City North Hills who specializes in elderly care and brings relevant information to help families who are caring for an elderly member. Dr. Herlihy tells a story of a woman whose husband was the primary caregiver for her Alzheimers but who died without establishing any medical records on her. The daughter was not involved in her care, living in another country. After her husband passed, the daughter had no idea of her history and neither did she due to the Alzheimers. This kind of dilemma can be avoided with proper planning.
    Finally, Steve Love and Thomas Miller wrap up this episode with some straight talk about the current status of the Covid-19 virus and how the medical community and local authorities in Texas are preparing for it.
