When the doctor’s advice isn’t enough: a caregiver’s perspective

In this episode, Nancie Wiseman Attwater discusses her husband Bill’s struggle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Despite the doctor’s advice to change his diet, Nancie realized that it was probably too late for that to make a difference. Instead, she focuses on making him comfortable in his remaining days and encourages other caregivers to do the same. Tune in to hear more about Nancie’s journey as a caregiver and the importance of taking care of yourself while taking care of a loved one.

Nancie Wiseman Attwater is the author of A Caregiver’s Love Story.

She shares her story and discusses her KevinMD article, “The slow progression of aging: Let compassion reign.”
