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.

Daughterhood The Podcast: For Caregivers

Daughterhood The Podcast is hosted by Rosanne Corcoran, who's journey into caregiving began with a dementia diagnosis of her fiercely independent mother, opening the door to a 12-year journey into sandwich caregiving. She brings her authentic voice to each conversation and discusses challenges caregivers face with experts in all fields.

This monthly podcast aims to provide insight into navigating the healthcare system, resources, support, and community to caregivers. As Rosanne knows first hand, caregiving is filled with uphill challenges, stress and grief, while trying to do the best you can everyday. Every month she offers information, inspiration or even just a little company. Join her in Daughterhood.

Host and Creator of Daughterhood The Podcast

Rosanne cared for her mother over a 12-year span, from supportive caregiver to in-home, sandwich caregiver for her mother’s final 6 years.

After experiencing first-hand the stress and isolation caregiving brings along with the lack of meaningful resources for caregivers, Rosanne created Daughterhood The Podcast: For Caregivers. 

In each monthly podcast, Rosanne carries her experience as a primary in-home caregiver and Daughterhood Circle Leader into each interview. Along with strategies and resources, this podcast also provides listeners with the comfort of knowing they are not facing these challenges alone.

The podcast’s subject matter has ranged from practical advice like dealing with dementia behaviors, to siblings and caregiving, to end of life issues, grief and everything in between. Guests have included physicians, best-selling authors, dementia experts, caregiving advocates and thought leaders. 

Rosanne has been featured in CNN Health, The Philadelphia Inquirer, Barron’s, Next Avenue and others. She is also a proud member of AlzAuthors.

Next Avenue named her one of their Influencers on Aging 2024 and named Daughterhood the Podcast: For Caregivers #1 in their list of Essential Caregiver Podcasts. Rosanne also facilitates multiple Daughterhood Circles monthly.
