Senior Care Corner Celebrates Milestone 50 Episodes of Family Caregiver News and Help

GREENVILLE, S.C., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Achieving fifty episodes is cause for celebration in media, where longevity is not typical. That's doubly true for biweekly shows, for which the fifty episode milestone takes almost two years to reach, and a source of pride for the producers of the Senior Care Corner Show as they post number fifty.

The Senior Care Corner Show (, with hosts Kathy and Barry Birkett, is an informative broadcast reaching out to family caregivers of senior adults and companion to Senior Care Corner's popular blog.  Explosive growth in the US' senior population means new family members each day are caring for aging loved ones.

The show's format includes a news segment, with news items of interest to caregivers gathered from a number of sources; a quick tip, a tidbit of information or action caregivers can take to benefit senior loved ones; and a feature segment covering more in depth one of the topics covered by Senior Care Corner in their blog, sometimes with an interview with an industry expert or technology provider to give listeners special insight.

"The show is part of our effort to reach out to family caregivers using a variety of media to inform in the way they want to get their information," says Barry Birkett of Senior Care Corner.  "Kathy and I enjoy preparing for and doing the show.  The feedback we get from listeners who are helped by the show is particularly gratifying and motivating."

The feature segment of the special 50th edition episode ( of the Senior Care Corner Show answers questions posed by listeners and other visitors to Senior Care Corner.  While each question gets a direct response to the sender when it's received, Kathy and Barry realize more listeners have similar questions but don't get around to asking them.  These are a sampling of those questions.

  • Senior Care Corner looks like a lot of work. Why do you do it?
  • You define "family caregiver" broadly in your posts, show and video so that anything we do for senior loved ones makes us one. Why is that?
  • Why do you see social media sites like Facebook being important to seniors?
  • Why are technology and the happenings at the International CES so important to both seniors and family caregivers?

"We love engaging with our listeners and readers," according to Kathy Birkett. "and feel privileged they turn to us as a resource to help them care for their loved ones."
