The Caregiver Hour is a radio show hosted by Kim Linder, founder of Senior Holistic Living and creator of The New Age of Caregiving Symposium.

A place where they can look at the big picture and make conscious decisions rather than reacting to the fear and panic that often set in after someone in their life falls, becomes ill, or experiences another type of crisis.
