1. The Caregiving Podcaster: Broadcasting Resources from His Unique Vantage Point AlzAuthors 46:40

When you’re caregiving, it can often feel like you are out there on your own without direction or resources. Sometimes, it can even feel like your healthcare providers aren’t able to meet your needs. If any of this sounds familiar, this episode will be of comfort.

Our special guest is Lance A. Slatton.

Lance A. Slatton, the founder of a prominent home care company in southeastern Michigan, brings a wealth of personal experience and professional expertise to the table. His caregiving journey, rooted in profound connections with his grandparents and later involving the care of his grandmother during her dementia and his father’s health crisis, has deeply influenced his perspective on family Caregiver support. Drawing from these experiences, Lance established his own home care company, driven by a commitment to improving Caregiver well-being and patient care. His unique insights, stemming from real-life situations, position him as a credible and valuable resource for individuals navigating similar caregiving challenges.
