It is my pleasure to introduce you all to a great friend and is considered more as a family member. Chris recently lost his partner Richard who he advocated for and was caregiver to for may years. He’s recently finished his thesis for his Masters Degree in Leadership and Communication at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Chris has continued on into the after caregiving community where he is starting, The Whole Care Network” which is being developed as a multi-media platform, consisting of radio, video and professional conferences designed to bring expert information, referrals and products to the estimated 42 million working family caregivers in America. This is an exert from Chris’s website, http://www.TheBoyTieGuy.com. Chris is also the author of the internationally and nationally award winning book “What’s The Deal With… Caregiving,” where he details his own dealings with caring for his partner Richard. His book is available on Amazon.com and is a must read.
Earlier today myself, Pegi Foulkrod (unable to attend), Gincy Heins, Trish Hughes Kreis and Kathy Lowrey the authors of, “365 Caregiving Tips: Practical Tips from Everyday Caregivers,” had the pleasure of being interviewed by Chris on his radio talk show which an audio copy of the show will be made available soon here on my website as well as on can be seen on http://www.blogtalkradio.com, just search for Chris MacLellan or 365 Caregiving Tips, to locate the how which is approximately 40 minutes in length. This is the first book in what will become a series of 365 Tips for….. Our next book which is due out before summer will be, “365 Caregiving Tips: Practical Tips for Travel and Respite.” The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines a respite as: “a short period of time when you are able to stop doing something that is difficult or unpleasant or when something difficult or unpleasant stops or is delayed.” (4/30/16, 10:11 am, http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/respite). The book will provide tips while traveling with a caree, either in car, airplane, boat or just staying in a motel can be a challenge. It will also give tips on setting up, finding, packing for, and preparing your caree for a respite period.
