An Interview with Gayle Tuttle

Caregiver Thought Leader Interview Gayle Tuttle Vice President of Market Innovation HAP Innovations, LLC

Gary Barg: I am honored to talk with you, as a 2017 Today’s Caregiver Friendly Award winner. I know that spencer just knocked out the judges. Can you tell me a little more about spencer and the role that technology plays in supporting caregivers when dealing with medication management?

Gayle Tuttle: Absolutely. And I think spencer's blushing right now with that compliment. So, thank you. I mention that he's blushing, I’m only partially teasing, since he is designed to be very engaging and interactive. more

An Interview with Dr. Caroline J. Cederquist

Caroline J. Cederquist is the Co-Founder and Medical Director of Silver Cuisine.

Gary Barg: Dr. Cederquist, you are a board certified Bariatric physician and your primary focus is on weight management. One challenge we have as family caregivers is that we have so little time to make sure loved ones get the proper nutrition. Is that why you created Silver Cuisine by BistroMD?

Dr. Cederquist: Yes, absolutely. People underestimate how much time it takes to eat well. Eating well will mean different things for different people, but usually you’re trying to get good quality sources of lean protein, without a lot of fat. The preparation of protein like chicken, fish, turkey, lean pork, is actually work. You have to buy it, make sure you cook it to the appropriate temperature, and make sure it’s not chewy to overdone.

An Interview with Steve Kaufman

Steve Kaufman is the CEO and Founder of Hands Free, Inc. The makers of Quikiks Hands-Free Shoes

Gary Barg: Steve, tell me about Quikiks Hand Free Shoes and why it's so important for family caregivers to know about them?
Steve Kaufman: Sure, Gary, thanks. Why is it important that caregivers know about hands free shoes? For many people it is a daily struggle to put on their shoes due to all sorts of conditions. Whether it be vertigo, obesity, chronic back pain, severe arthritis, Cerebral Palsy or Parkinson's—there's just a whole host of conditions that make it difficult for people to put their shoes on independently.
