The Blogtalk Radio show, The Caregiver’s Caregiver, hosted by Dave Nassaney is an hour-long program dedicated to helping caregivers avoid burnout and survive grief. He recently interviewed Gail Rubin, Certified Thanatologist and author of A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die.
The discussion includes how caregivers experience anticipatory grief, mourning losses before the person dies. They also talked about new trends in death care, such as home funerals, how to minimize funeral costs and get a free cremation, and why having a funeral or memorial service is healing for caregivers.

Dave’s 92-year-old mother died two days after this interview was posted. He’s since had an outpouring of support from his Facebook friends.
