Episode 1: Successful Aging Is In Your Control

How do you want to be care for as you age? By planning now, successful aging is in your control!

Monica Stynchula from Credit for Caring and Christopher MacLellan team up again for another informative podcast series to introduce you to the Whole Care Network's 4 Pillars of Care by asking you one simple question:

Physical 5

Episode 2: Physical Pillar of Care

What are your priorities when planning for your future care?

The Physical Pillar is often most prominent because it is usually a physical ailment of a loved one that results in you becoming a caregiver.

Unfortunately the focus on addressing the physical needs of your loved ones causes you to ignore your own physical needs, limiting your ability to manage your stress and provide optimal care.

Self-care is easier said than done, however self-care is not selfish, it's a priority and our goal is to help you plan for your future care by allowing you to make self-care a priority in your life.



Social 10

Episode 3: Social Pillar of Care

What are your priorities when planning for your future care?

All too often, and unnecessarily, caregiving can be a lonely undertaking for you and your loved one.

Over time and all too often, caregiving breeds isolation. Loss of social outlets and limited interactions with family and friends are common which can lead to depression and despair.

While caregiving can be hard, there are great joys too.

Our Social Pillar will provide you with the tools to help you stay connected to your hobbies, your friends, and family and how to create a care team to help alleviate some of the caregiving burden and maintain those vital social ties.


Finance 2

Episode 4: Financial Pillar of Care

What are your priorities when planning for your future care?

In this episode we introduce you to our special guests, The Caregiver Attorney, Amanda Singleton, and her husband Ryan Singleton who is a Consumer Affairs attorney from Singleton Legal

Financial stress is overwhelming and can impact your overall well-being. Assessing the long-term financial impact of caregiving is critical.

Reduction or loss of income and increased healthcare costs often go hand-in-hand with caregiving. Ideally, financial plans were made by your loved one in anticipation of a need for long-term care, however, that is not the norm.

Our Financial Pillar is filled with real-life stories and expert advice to help you put a plan in place that will keep your financial pillar level and strong.

Spiritual 8

Episode 5: Spiritual Pillar of Care 

What are your priorities when planning for your future care?

In this episode we introduce you to our Spiritual Pillar of Care,

On the Whole Care Network, we understand spirituality can have different meanings for everyone. And we respect and embrace all spirituality.

Our spiritual pillar is focused on the entire person, rather a holistic point of view of all the aspects of you that are revealed in your role as a caregiver.

Through this journey, you learn the art of self-compassion and the importance of self-care which is job number one for all caregivers.

Our Spiritual Pillar will demonstrate the healing power of storytelling and how sharing one's story can bring you inner peace and comfort.
