National Family Caregivers Month

YourUpdateTV

National Family Caregivers Month – celebrated each November – is a time to recognize and honor family caregivers across the country. Caregiver Action Network (CAN), the nation’s leading family caregiver organization, selects each year’s theme for National Family Caregivers Month and spearheads the celebration of National Family Caregivers Month nationally. Recently, John Schall, Chief Executive Officer of the Caregiver Action Network, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss National Family Caregivers Month and the importance of honoring those caring for a loved one. For National Family Caregivers Month 2021, the #CaregiverAnd Campaign encourages family caregivers to celebrate the identities and passions that enrich their lives. This digital campaign will highlight the other roles, activities, and passions that make up the lives of family caregivers. #CaregiverAnd will also raise awareness of family caregivers as people realize that their daughter’s piano teacher may be caring for her husband with lung cancer, or the mail carrier they see every day may be caring for his dad with Alzheimer’s. Far too often the role of family caregiver overshadows the identity of those caring for their loved ones. As family caregivers juggle their many responsibilities, they may lose sight of who they are beyond the caregiver role. As you focus all your attention on caring for your mom with leukemia, the fact that you’re an architect who loves to do crossword puzzles sometimes gets pushed to the side—and this campaign aims to change that. A person’s sense of self makes their life complete. This is an essential component of self-care that can ultimately prevent caregiver burnout and depression. For more information, visit www.CaregiverAction.org About John Schall: As the Chief Executive Officer of Caregiver Action Network, John Schall is the organization’s content expert, responsible for articulating CAN’s vision, developing the organization’s strategic plan and leading the organization’s advocacy efforts. Recognized nationally as a thought leader on caregiving issues and trends, John effectively links private sector goals with health care public policy. John leverages his 30+ years of expertise in a wide range of policy fields, including healthcare, labor, education, economic development, taxation, and budget policy, to develop programs and strategies to solve the nation’s looming caregiver crisis. About Caregiver Action Network: Caregiver Action Network ( www.CaregiverAction.org ) is the nation’s leading family caregiver organization working to improve the quality of life for more than 90 million Americans who care for loved ones with chronic conditions, disabilities, disease, or the frailties of old age. CAN serves a broad spectrum of family caregivers ranging from the parents of children with significant health needs, to the families and friends of wounded soldiers; from a young couple dealing with a diagnosis of MS, to adult children caring for parents with Alzheimer’s disease. CAN reaches caregivers on multiple platforms. CAN (the National Family Caregivers Association) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing education, peer support, and resources to family caregivers across the country free of charge.

Improving the Lives of Caregivers

YourUpdateTV

There will be more people over 65 than under 18 by 2030 -- the boomer generation is living longer and wants to age at home. The result is more than 53 million family caregivers in the U.S., caring for more than 80 million people, and spending more than $187 billion on home health care. Recently, Bianca Padilla, CEO and Co-Founder of Carewell, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the importance of supporting caregivers around the country. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Z8i-N0yyx30 One-fifth of Americans will act as informal caregivers at some point in their lives, but there is little in the way of vetted products, product knowledge, guidance, and service to help those in the position of caring for a loved one. The biggest trend in caregiving over the past few years is aging at home. 90% of Americans want to stay in their homes for the rest of their lives. They don’t want change, and it’s up to the younger generations to help them do this safely and comfortably. 84% of caregivers report needing more information, so providing access to educational resources is vital for this audience, especially as conditions change - and usually worsen - over time. Carewell is redefining home healthcare by helping caregivers manage their loved one’s conditions, as well as their own lives. Carewell strives to make this population feel seen and understood by providing the products, service, and community support they need along with a level of customer service and convenience rarely found in healthcare. Carewell offers support to family caregivers with a library of information and caregiving guides to remove guesswork. For more information, visit Carewell.com About Bianca Padilla: Bianca Padilla is the CEO and co-founder of Carewell, a family-founded company that simplifies life for caregivers by providing personalized service, compassionate content, and expert-vetted home care products. A graduate of New York University with a B.A. in Economics, Bianca attended the Disney Institute and formed the Charlotte chapter of Aging 2.0, for which she currently serves as an ambassador. Prior to founding Carewell, Bianca worked as a software engineer at LiveNinja and as an analyst for CCMP Capital Advisors and Pantheon Ventures. A Miami native, Bianca enjoys spending time with her co-founder husband Jon and dog Henry, traveling, being an unabashed foodie, and reading books about entrepreneurship, leadership, tech, and comedy.

Recording Artist Guild (RAG) Selects BEASY to Empower and Enable Musicians for the Metaverse

Beasy, LLC

Blockchain Made Easy, LLC (dba BEASY) and Recording Artist Guild (RAG.ORG) announced today that RAG.ORG and Lookhu.com have signed a multi-year enterprise licensing agreement with BEASY to deliver the utility of blockchain to RAG’s more than 20,000 members. “We’ve sought tirelessly to understand and deliver the benefits of blockchain to our members for years and although we succeeded in some ways, we lacked consistency and the ability to scale.” said Byron Booker, Chairman and Founder of RAG. “We’ve been talking with everyone who’s anyone at the intersection of blockchain and entertainment, and while solutions have advanced, BEASY stands out as our winner. BEASY’s solution puts enterprise grade software and the power to legally trade and enforce ownership in the hands of the artist. It’s easy to use, works with all our systems, supports NFT transactions on credit cards and allows us to do so within our brand identity,” he added. “We’re incredibly grateful and excited to be working with RAG. We started building BEASY three years ago for organizations just like RAG to help their communities realize their dreams. And now our dream is coming true as well.” said Bob Kramich, Founder and CEO of BEASY. For RAG creators or sellers, BEASY provides a complete metaverse identity management solution in one simple package through which they can: Mint, rarify and sell their own digital assets on any NFT marketplace, or directly from their web sites. Accept credit cards as a payment method for NFTs. Smarten, manage and control song contracts including fractional ownership splits. Easily onboard friends as fans which expands their serviceable obtainable market and prepares fans to participate in upcoming NFT drops. Establish and manage their official Sovereign Digital Identities including their digital name, official credentials and accomplishments. Manage their Official Partner Network. Maintain the true state of receivables owed and paid across multiple contracts and multiple mediums, no matter how many or how fractional the ownership or micro payment due. Customize, scale and continuously improve using enterprise-grade BaaS software. Rapidly team with a variety of business partners and sell and go to market. For buyers and fans, BEASY makes it possible to participate in the digital asset economy without using cryptocurrencies. As most NFT sites require buyers to use cryptocurrencies, the BEASY Wallet allows RAG fans to buy NFTs using credit cards. The buyer benefits from ease of use and the creator benefits from the expansion of their serviceable obtainable market (SOM). At its highest level, BEASY mainstreams the adoption of blockchain to improve the economic situation of individuals, businesses and communities. “BEASY is not a blockchain game and BEASY is not an NFT marketplace,” explains Kramich. “BEASY is Blockchain-as-a-Service software that is easy to install and use and acts as a combined personal notary and digital asset control center. With BEASY, influencers and creators can participate in multiple blockchain-based games and sell NFTs on any NFT marketplace while preserving the true state of how much is owned and owed across all mediums - no matter how fractional the ownership or how micro the payment. What’s more is that sellers, while operating in main blockchain networks, can do so without forcing themselves or their clients to ever purchase cryptocurrencies.
