Caregiver Help Radio – Connecting With Loved Ones Beyond the Grave

Do we have a spiritual connection to loved ones from beyond the grave? When we encounter them in the middle of the night, is it a dream or are they really there? Do they watch over us? Are we inspired, motivated, or encouraged by them? Is it possible that they have a hand in arranging the events in our daily lives?

Join us as we visit with Elaine Periera, a retired school occupational therapist who worked with special needs children. She is the author of the book, “I Will Never Forget – a Daughter’s Story of her Mother’s Arduous and Humorous Journey through Dementia”. During the time Elaine was caring for her mother, she was also losing her brother Jerry to terminal cancer. In her effort to make her brother’s last Christmas a special day, Elaine experienced a series of events that she believes were orchestrated by her sister-in-law Wendie, who had passed away three years earlier. After Jerry’s death, Elaine had a number of experiences in which she felt he was providing guidance and support from beyond the grave.

To explore whether these types of experiences are real, simple coincidences, or products of our imagination, we turn to turn to Julie Simpson with the Spiritualists Online Network. Julie is a medium who has worked in the UK and New Zealand for more than 20 years. She shares her thoughts on how we are connected to loved ones who have gone on before us and how they help us cross from this life into the next. During the program she makes a couple of connections with loved ones who are now in the spirit world. Are those connections real or just an entertaining coincidence? You’ll have to decide for yourself.

Being a caregiver is one of the most difficult and generous acts of love any of us will ever be asked to perform on behalf of another. Our goal is to address some of the issues caregivers grapple with every day and provide you with information and insights that will help make your job a little easier. Our website, is also there to help you cope with the anger, guilt, depression and grief often associated with caregiving. When you find yourself struggling through a bad day or a sleepless night, we hope you’ll turn to us for some encouragement, support, and even a few laughs.
