I just started reading your book, It’s My Life Too!. I took care of my parents for over thirteen years, they both had Alzheimer’s, I wish your book had been available back when I started caregiving. You provided lots of great information, I will recommend it to my friends who are caregivers as well. I’ve also started listening to your podcasts, my first podcasts I’ve really listened to. It’s opened up a whole new world for me.I will also admit, it’s nice to feel a connection by listening to your voice and the voices of your guests. I feel like I’m in the room with you. Again, like with your book, your podcasts are very informative. When I finish reading your book, I will definitely leave a review online.
Thank you Dave for providing the services that you do for caregivers, it’s so important during regular times, now with the virus, your voice is even more important. Take care and stay healthy, my friend,
Good afternoon, Dave
Sure was a pleasure speaking on your podcast yesterday afternoon. I loved your enthusiastic warm-hearted, spontaneous, joyful genuine spirit. Being on your show was a blast for me, and I hope for you as well! You are exactly the kind of podcast for whom I’d like to speak! You exemplified being a model of what a caregiver should look like; compassion and perception; inclusion and high expectation! I look forward in keeping in touch and seeing you virtually or in person some day.
With gratitude and Infinite blessings.
Dave is really my idol because he created something amazing for caregivers. When I was a caregiver for my father, I remember that it was so hard (I’m crying just thinking about when I was his caregiver…. and it’s been 15 years already). If I had access to Dave’s community of support when I was a caregiver, I would have been in much better condition to thrive, and not have been so stressed all the time — I was BARELY surviving, and my health suffered. I read some blog posts, and that is EXACTLY what I needed to hear 15 years ago. Thank you Dave for offering this support to the next generation so they don’t have to go through what I went through.
When I joined your Facebook group over a month ago, I listened to that video on suicide and depression. Thanks for sharing. Maybe this is a way for caregivers to start having these important and necessary conversations relating to feelings of guilt, depression, stress and feelings of suicide.
I was very moved to send you this brief praise of your Important, Informative, and Uplifting Podcast, The Caregiver Dave Radio Show.
There is so much pressure in today’s world for ‘regular’ people…..imagine adding another layer of stress for being a caregiver…even on a part time basis.
Having practical strategies, tips, and tools to not only ‘cope’ with, but …if I may be so bold….to actually ENJOY the process of caring, well, that is a heavenly haven.
Your radio show is to be commended for seeking out the very best advice possible, from the very best guests, and/or experts in caregiving, and bringing this valuable life-saving knowledge to your many listeners.
A Huge BRAVO!
May you continue to be a fountain of benefits for decades to come.
Sincerest best wishes,
