Maryland Senator Ben Cardin joins us to talk about the youth movement against gun violence, Russian sanctions, and more. D.C. Councilmember Mary Cheh shares her thoughts on relief for high water bills and news that D.C. Public Schools is taking over an all girls charter school.
When local journalist Jay Newton Small placed her father into long-term Alzheimer’s care, she wrote down his life story and introduced his nursing staff –not to an anonymous patient– but to the father she loved. After learning her father’s personal story, his caregivers were able to relate to the man behind the symptoms and better personalize his care. Small went on to form her own business providing storytelling services for local caregiving facilities. We discuss how care for local Alzheimer’s patients can be improved with Small and another health care professional.
