In this episode, we discuss on how to deal with this very sad reality of widowhood. Widows are often an overlooked group in our society, but losing a spouse is one of the hardest things one can experience. On the top of the emotional burdens that a death can bring, it may also result in major financial and lifestyle changes as well. And although many will advise you not to make any new, rash decisions after a loss, it’s not always practical. There are some things that need to be dealt with very soon after the death of a loved one.

In our Medical moment, we will visit with special guest Alice Nuttall, MBA, RN, BA Director of Behavioral Health at Lakeland Regional Health to Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease.
