Trauma-Informed Care in Caregiving with Andi Fetzner
- October 13th 2022
Andi Fetzner, PsyD is a co-founder of Origins Training & Consulting. Her training mantra is, “you don’t have to be a therapist to be therapeutic.” Her decades of experience professionally and her personal caregiving story give her the unique perspective of living both sides.
Andi and I discuss the challenges of dealing not only with your care partner’s past trauma but also our own. She shares techniques we can use to improve our interactions and care for ourselves throughout our caregiving journey.
Daughterhood The Podcast: For Caregivers
Daughterhood The Podcast is hosted by Rosanne Corcoran, a former primary, sandwich, in-home caregiver, who's been there, done that. Rosanne also leads a monthly Daughterhood Circle support group, as well as a monthly DAWN dementia support group.
This monthly podcast aims to provide insight into navigating the healthcare system, resources, support, and community to those caring for their loved ones. As Rosanne knows first hand, caregiving is filled with uphill challenges, stress and grief, while trying to do the best for your loved one. This podcast offers information, inspiration or even just a little company. Join her in Daughterhood.
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.
Agingcare.com named Daughterhood the Podcast: For Caregivers #1 in their list of Essential Caregiver Podcasts. Rosanne also facilitates a monthly Daughterhood Circle as well as a monthly DAWN dementia support group.
