eCareDiary will broadcast the first live online support group called "Caregivers Speak
!" Created by and for caregivers, Caregivers Speak!, will debut on Tuesday, May 8th at 2:00pm EST on BlogTalkRadio.com. Hosted by Margery Pabst, eCareDiary's caregiving expert and co-author of Enrich Your Caregiving Journey
, it will continue to air live on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.
Three experienced caregivers are invited on the program to share their perspectives and strategies that have helped them overcome a particular challenge. Host Margery Pabst presents a new challenge each month ranging from coping with guilt to more controversial issues such as dating when a spouse is lost to Alzheimer's. The audience listens in either on the Caregivers Speak
! channel on BlogTalkRadio or by calling in on (347) 857-3399.
According to eCareDiary Co-founder, Susan Baida, "For the first time, caregivers can come out of isolation by joining a live online support group and actually listen in or speak with one another."
The caregivers on the panel represent a wide variety of situations, types of illnesses that they have dealt with, cultural backgrounds, and roles. A 30 minute program, listeners are then invited to participate during the last 10 minutes with questions or comments.
Each live program will be recorded and available for download on eCareDiary's website
for those who missed it and wish to listen to it later. Caregivers Speak! is a safe online support group for new and seasoned caregivers alike to share their experience and support.
