Ask the Expert

Do you know the difference between home health and home care? What is palliative care? When should my family begin the conversation about hospice for dad? I think mom needs help lately with housework and getting to the doctor—how can Homeland help her? What service is right for me?

Every Thursday afternoon on WINK 104 you can tune in to “Ask the Expert”—a two minute segment created to educate and inform our region’s aging population and their loved ones about the benefits of at home health services. WINK’s DJ, Hollywood, speaks with Tamie Francis, Assistant Director of Operations of Homeland Hospice, HomeHealth and HomeCare to help answer the questions above and more.

“Tamie is a very experienced and knowledgeable ‘at home’ professional. On Ask the Expert she discusses how and why home may be the best place to receive care and what different types of services are available,” stated Sue Minarik, Executive Director, Homeland Hospice, HomeHealth & HomeCare. “Homeland’s goal is make sure you and your loved ones are aware of all of the different choices you have when ‘at home’ care is needed. Being able to use radio as an educational platform is invaluable. We are happy to be partnering with Cumulus on this community effort.”

In addition to tuning into the Ask the Expert, Homeland encourages listeners to have a face-to-face conversation with their doctors, caregivers and spiritual advisors in order to help them make the best decisions for their care.

The radio segment began in June and will continue to run throughout the year. If you are interested in submitting a question, please email us at questions@homelandathome.org. To listen to prior segments, please click here.
