4-30-22: Kay Stout, Career transition and outplacement consultant & member of VillagesOKC

Kay Stout (pictured left) is a career transition and outplacement consultant.  She has developed three successful non profit organizations, been a radio host on KTOC, was chairman of Sales and Marketing Executives International Dinner and one of the first to adopt linked-in.

At Second Chance Animal Sanctuary, Kay was part of the documentary “The Dogs of Lexington” (Nominated for an Academy award) that validates not only the connection between dogs and humans but also the value of a shelter dog and a prisoner who are given a second chance.

Kay’s administrative skills and passion for rescuing animals impacted over 14,000 pets in many states.

Kay is also a member of VillageOKC it’s a plan and not a  place so not only will we be talking about Kay’s personal history on the OSJ / radio hour. We are asking Kay what it’s like to be a member of VillagesOKC.org

4-9-22: Are You a Family Caregiver? In studio: My Lovely Mama – Bobbie Gray Diffee-Gunn

As some of you may know I am writing once a month in the The Oklahoma on “Family Caregiving” (pictured above is my Favorite Mama Bobbie Gunn, a devoted family caregiver along with myself.) We provide other important resources for the 50 Plus and their families along with services that care for the 50+ !
The Second Sunday of every month I write a column in the Oklahoman “Veiw Point” Section!
We also wanted to share what our personal family caregiving expert experience with my Dad for 8 1/2 years at home Gordon Carl Gunn when along with that experience.
After we put him into a Veterans center after we care for him at home that had a wing for memory care we visited my Dad anywhere from 3 to 4 days a week so we were very heavily involved with his care even in memory care. We also found support groups at the veteran’s center and Support groups are vital for the family and in many hospice’s, home care,  assisted living,  retirement communities and churches provide support groups for family caregivers!
Today’s OSJ Radio Show show will be on life experiences that we experienced as family caregivers with my dad with Dementia and Alzheimer’s diagnosis’s.
There are 240,000+ family care caregivers in the state of Oklahoma alone!
They need the Oklahoma Senior Journal’s expert help along with myself! Okseniorjournal.com
