The Freeway of Life Journey's End
February 6, 2020
Hosted by Gord Riddell, RP with Co-Host Alexia Georgousis, ND
Do you have a loved one that needs end of life care? Are you a caregiver looking for more support? What does palliative care mean and how does one access more services like hospice or respite? How can our society engage in more openness around the topic of death? How are body, mind and spirit addressed when one has a terminal or life limiting illness? What is the role of the caregiver or substitute decision maker and when does their role start? Often our loved ones may or may not want to talk about their illness, what they are facing, choices for how they want to live and die and those conversations are difficult ones to have but important. How can we start the conversation and fulfill their wishes? There is a tendency to pull away from people when they are ill or from a friend after their spouse/partner has died. How can we continue to support people in their time of need? How do we embrace this great mystery?
Things Worth Considering
Thursday at 5 PM Pacific Time/8 PM Eastern Time on VoiceAmerica Empowerment Channel
This is a show about connections. Connections to your self, your spirit, your feelings and your story. One of the most powerful healing tools we have is our connections. Connect to your intuition and explore your AHA moments. Discover how we get in our own way and how we can overcome obstacles to move on. How we think, what we think, what we believe, and our attitudes define how we experience our life. The fascinating idea that we shape our reality to what we believe it should be, in our minds. How we connect to our families, our aging family members and slowly we become caregivers, not caretakers.
Embracing the reality of aging, not into senior citizens but living the archetypal Elder, the Wise One. Living the Spiritual idea of being of service but not being someone’s servant. As we explore the many roads of the human journey with our guests, we will connect to each other by embracing many of the mysteries of life and there we arrive at things worth considering.
