In this lively interview with Roy Richards, known also for his Middle Age Renewal Training, Carol-Ann enjoyed posing an intriguing question. How much do you really owe your troublesome folks? Her own teaching consists of helping adult children to set boundaries and find “me time” that restores their sanity.
Want to turkey drop your parents? Tired of playing cop or walking on eggshells around the Thanksgiving table? Carol-Ann offers just the advice needed to make this year’s holiday tolerable. With engaging Newsradio 600WMT Morning Show Host, Doug Wagner, she talked about jettisoning outworn traditions and finding happiness amidst the chaos.
Carol-Ann thanks Doctor Health, David Snow of “Radio’s Original Health News Magazine”, for taking time from his busy holiday season to equip his audience with the worst resolutions if you have aging parents. These included: calling/visiting more often; trying harder to please; doing more than you are; and rescuing siblings from their responsibilities.
International Caregiving Week in November is a chance to recognize the hard work and personal sacrifices of a group of unsung heroes – the caregivers who do this work often without back up, appreciation or compensation. With Mark Cope, Carol-Ann paid tribute to those who keep elderly people thriving and out of nursing homes.
Dr. Judy Morgan
During her meaningful conversation with Dr. Judy Morgan, Carol-Ann addressed how much stressful caregiving of aging parents can affect your pets.

In this poignant interview, Carol-Ann was moved to share with Wayne Kent the theme of “Forgive Mom and Dad Day”.

Wayne’s show is available for live streamingand podcasts found by scrolling through to Wednesday’s WSOY page.
Tom Barnard Show
Carol-Ann feels it fair to say that she and Tom Barnard found her interview equally illuminating. They not only discussed her tips for coping with difficult aging parents but also touched upon their personal stories. This is not something Minnesota’s #1 morning talk show host on KQRS does lightly. She was deeply appreciative.
Dr. Brenda Wade

Via real estate expert, Jennifer Hammond, Carol-Ann had an opportunity to break down the elephantine sale of her parents’ 50-year home into bite-sized chunks. While not every situation is a “hoarders on steroids” like hers, the lessons learned will serve many in practical and emotional terms.
In a wide-ranging dialogue, Lewis Harrison and Carol-Ann talked about what aggravates them – much as each strives to remain Zen, Tao and more. That conversation led into an overview of her 3-step Pissed-Off Journal to record, release and reframe the annoying events of daily life. Elderly parents, anyone?
Aware of her commitment to social justice issues, Carol-Ann thanks Maggie Linton for co-creating a safe space into which she could speak vital information about burgeoning aging population issues globally. She truly appreciated the forum to increase awareness that might not have otherwise come to light.
Dr. Veronica Anderson
On “Wellness for the REAL World”, Carol-Ann shared the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual impacts of caregiving with this Functional Medicine practitioner, Homeopath and Medical Intuitive who “gets it”. Their professional conversation broached into the personal as each authentically shared experiences with aging fathers.
How terrific it was to connect with Bonnie of “Read My Lips” Radio at a National Publicity Summit in New York City. The focus was Carol-Ann’s six steps out of comfort zones to live your dreams, based on her book, Step Out of Your Sandbox! Even then, there is a link to caregiving, as you exit the aging-parent marathon and strive to reclaim your life.
