Greg Gerendas is a third time guest to Eugeria! Radio.  As he has informed us previously, he is not a native Texan, but acknowledges he got here as soon as he could!  He was trained as a Lutheran pastor, and now serves as the Executive Director for Senior Adult Services, a non-profit organization committed to caring for seniors as they face either short or long term changes in abilities caused by illness or age.  Senior Adult Services provides supportive services such as home delivered meals, home modifications and transportation to seniors and disabled adults in the cities of Farmers Branch, Carrolton, Coppell and Addison.

Today, Greg is introducing us to two new guests, Dr. Ross Stewart, and his daughter, Elizabeth Stewart.  Dr. Stewart has been in the field of Behavioral Psychology for 41 years!  In private practice for more than 30 years, Dr. Stewart has spent the last ten years studying brain chemistry, and is committed to providing real help to patients over 50 that are beginning to suffer from depression or some sort of cognitive decline.

Dr. Stewart is joined in the studio today by his daughter, Elizabeth.  Facing a potentially life-threatening illness as a youth, her parents, Ross and Ania observed adverse effects of prescription medication, and began to explore clinical nutrition, applied nutritional physiology and “Complete Food” nutritional supplementation.  Elizabeth tells us that this saved her life!  As a result, the Stewart family is committed to bringing these solutions to their clients through the Brain and Body Wellness Center.  Warning!  Do not listen to this broadcast if you’re comfortable with your diet of donuts, french fries and soft drinks (both diet and regular)!  That said, if you want to learn more about how to eat your way to better health, listen in today, and join the Stewarts again on December 7 for Part 2!  In the mean time, call them directly at 972-248-0780, or visit their website at www.brainandbodywellnesscenter.com.

Though Lee Lambert was born in Alabama, she considers herself an Atlanta native, having lived there better than 30 years.  She is the author of “The Caregivers Companion” and founder of a not-for-profit by the same name.  “The Caregivers Companion”, who’s purpose is to support and bring awareness to the unique needs of caregivers, is full of useful, practical information supported by real life experiences.

Though her formal education is in the management and building design industry, Lee speaks with authority regarding caregivers, having personally cared for her father, who suffered with Alzheimer’s for 15 years.   During this journey she realized that her father’s disease greatly affected the quality of her emotional and physical life and therefore impacted the care she was providing her father. Lee’s philosophy that “care is the common thread between all diseases and disorders” is the fuel that drives her.  Lee’s advice, “develop a proactive attitude”, creating a foundation upon which the caregiver’s quality life is built.  For more information, contact her at lee@thecaregiverscompanion.org.

We also want to thank Griswold Special Care for sponsoring today's show.  Griswold Special Care has been a preferred provider of high quality, affordable in-home senior care in Dallas and Atlanta for nearly  20 years.
