Grandpa Bills next in studio guest, Dr. Edward Smink- here's some of the questions I will ask Dr Edward to address:

How did you become a caregiver?

Can you tell us more about how you overcame compassion fatigue?In your book, you define caregivers more broadly than most of us are familiar with. Can you elaborate on who are the caregivers?

Can you help us understand why caregivers are resistant in seeking help and self-care?

What is compassion fatigue and why do most caregivers experience it?

You mention that there are three cultural taboos that caregivers struggle with in developing skills of self-care.

Can you tell us more?Caregivers share a common bond with other caregivers who share their similar roles.

What are the strengths and challenges of these groups?
