Gary Barg - Editor-in-chief An Interview with Larry King

Larry King was the Emmy award winning host of CNN’s longest running interview program. Dubbed  “the most remarkable talk-show host on TV ever” by TV Guide and “master of the mike” by TIME magazine,   the show featured guests from across the gamut of business, entertainment and politics including present and past presidents, kings, queens, movie stars and health care professionals. After a massive heart attack in 1987, Mr. King created the Larry King Cardiac Foundation to provide funding for life saving cardiac procedures for individuals who, due to limited means and no insurance, would be otherwise unable to receive life saving treatment.  Editor-in-Chief Gary Barg turns the tables on the nation’s leading interviewer for a heart felt and wide ranging conversation.

When and How To Say "No" to Caregiving
By Deborah Colgan

When is it time to say “No”?
How does a caregiver know when he or she can no longer manage the daily caregiving routines and planning responsibilities? What signals alert the caregiver that he or she is in trouble of getting lost in caregiving? Can a caregiver who cherishes a loved one set limits on responsibilities without feeling guilty or morally bankrupt? These are questions at the heart of successful, long-term caregiving...continued
