Here at Daughterhood, we receive numerous questions regarding governmental policy, and the myriad of ways it affects the healthcare system and each of us both as patient and as caregiver. 

It was my pleasure to speak with two experts in the field and friends of the podcast - Howard Gleckman Senior Fellow at The Urban Institute as well as a columnist at Forbes, editor of TaxVox Blog for the Tax Policy Center and author of Caring for our parents. And creator of Daughterhood Anne Tumlinson who is also the Founder and CEO of ATI Advisory a national research and consulting firm that shapes public policy and business strategy to reform care delivery for individuals with complex care needs and their families. 

We discuss many issues like the challenges of trying to change policy, the importance of lawmakers hearing and understanding the challenges caregivers face, how policy shapes the care we receive and the importance of making our voices heard.

Host and Creator of Daughterhood The Podcast

Rosanne cared for her mother over a 12 year span starting as a stealth caregiver, to full time caregiver, to in-home, sandwich caregiver for her mother’s final 6 years.

Rosanne created Daughterhood The Podcast: For Caregivers after experiencing first-hand the stress and isolation caregiving brings along with the lack of meaningful resources for caregivers. The podcast cultivates a dynamic group of subject matter experts to help listeners navigate these uncharted, and many times, tumultuous waters.

The podcast’s subject matter has ranged from legal advice, to establishing boundaries, to end of life care, and the list continues to grow. Guests have included physicians, best-selling authors, dementia experts and more. Caregiving is inherently difficult and this podcast hopes to provide insight, resources, and skills to manage the challenges relating to caregiving, and to know you are not alone!

Rosanne has been featured in CNN Health, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Barron’s, Next Avenue and others. She is also a proud member of AlzAuthors. named Daughterhood the Podcast: For Caregivers #1 in their list of Essential Caregiver Podcasts.
