Specialized In-Home Care: Empowering You To Live Your Best Life &Raquo; Dr Samantha Benjamin Allen

Navigating the complexities of the healthcare system, especially post-hospitalization, can be a daunting task. But what if there was a way to manage these hurdles with the support of a specialized in-home care professional? Enter Dr. Samantha Benjamin Allen, who sheds light on the often overlooked gap in healthcare for individuals transitioning from hospital to home. We delve into the benefits, challenges, and costs associated with in-home caregiving, with a particular focus on finding the best care plans and treatments for your loved ones.

It’s no secret that the aging US population and those with memory care needs present unique challenges regarding in-home care. We explore these issues further with Dr. Allen, addressing the guilt that often comes with finding alternative care options. We share a hearty discussion about the joy of caring for elderly friends and the complexities of caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s. You’ll gain invaluable insights into how caregivers can ensure they also care for themselves in these taxing circumstances.

To wrap up our enlightening chat, Dr. Allen introduces us to her membership-based model for holistic care and the rising trend of concierge medicine. We discuss how this innovative approach can support those with limited access to healthcare services, manage medical issues at home, and offer an alternative for caregivers struggling with inaccessible infrastructure. We also highlight the pressing need for a more effective system to provide care for those with Alzheimer’s. Tune in for this essential conversation- it’s a must-listen if you’re a Caregiver or know someone who is.

After helping care for her grandmother who had vascular dementia, Jennifer realized her Mother was showing signs of early onset Alzheimer’s. After the death of her father in 2017 Jennifer went searching for answers to many of the common questions and Alzheimer’s caregiver faces. Being a busy entrepreneur Jennifer realized that a podcast would be the easiest way to learn more about caregiving while completing other tasks.

Sadly, in late 2017 she only found one and it didn’t quite address what she was looking for, so she did the next best thing, and started her own. The Fading Memories podcast is now in it’s fourth year and despite the death of her Mom in March 2020, Jennifer is still talking to caregivers and still learning how to be an excellent caregiver. On the podcast she discusses caregiving, brain health, self-care and how to age well.
