Ep. 1: Jody Gastfriend

Kathryn Zox interviews senior care expert and social worker Jody Gastfriend, author of “My Parent’s Keeper: The Guilt, Grief, Guesswork, and Unexpected Gifts of Caregiving”. With life expectancy almost double what it was a 100 years ago, we’re at a point in history when people 85 years and over make up the largest growing demographic in the US. Gastfriend shares her guide to caring for aging family members by providing advice, vignettes and a compassionate approach to helping family caregivers find gratification in their new role.
