One of the greatest stressors of modern life is money. For caregivers, their family, and other members of their support system, money can be the bridge or barrier to better health care, more services, and domestic stability. In this first episode of the third season of Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast, Gery and Julie talk with Bob Stolz, a good friend of the Deer family and skilled financial professional. Bob shares his take on how to look out for the bottom line as a caregiver and as someone looking out for someone else’s interests. The Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast is an educational production of GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd., copyright 2021, all rights reserved.

Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast Description - Season 2: Episode 13  The Physical Therapist and the Old NerdIn our Season 2 Finale, Gery and Julie welcome Dr. Chelsea Walter, a physical therapist from the Lebanon, Ohio area who has started her own, in-home/in-gym practice. Chelsea talks PT and the various differences between therapies as well as helping you to understand how it’s much more than just something you do after an injury. About Healthy Movement Physical Therapy and Wellness and Dr. Chelsea WalterHealthy Movement Physical Therapy and Wellness, LLC is a mobile, concierge PT, and wellness practice founded by Dr. Chelsea Walter in 2020. This practice was born out of wanting to help people in a way that was lacking with traditional physical therapy. Chelsea spent five years working in an outpatient PT clinic for a local hospital network. During this time, she learned that the insurance-based model squeezed too many patients into one day and left the therapist minimal personal time with the client. The choice to go out-of-network was easy. Outside of the corporate model and without insurance dictating care, she is now able to give clients the attention they deserve and to treat them as more than just an injury or another insurance claim. (On Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/healthymovementPT)  FAQs - https://www.healthymovementpt.com/faqsChelsea’s background is in physical therapy with an emphasis on the treatment of spinal conditions. She graduated from Saint Louis University in 2014 with her Doctorate of Physical Therapy and completed undergraduate work at the same institution. From 2018 to 2019, she was a post-graduate resident with the McKenzie Institute where she achieved certification in the McKenzie Method of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) and board certification in orthopedics (OCS). Chelsea enjoys working with clients who are active in the gym or with recreational sports. She has led an active lifestyle from early on in life and enjoys hiking, travel, and spending time with family. Graphics by Taylor HugginsOld Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast, it’s associated trade and service marks and all content connected thereto are copyright 2020 GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd.

This episode of the Old Nerd in the Gym involves grief and loss.  It may be uncomfortable for some listeners. Listener discretion is advised.  A great deal of the Old Nerd content has been generated from our founder, Gery Deer, and his experience caring for his parents. Sadly, his father, Gary, Sr., passed away on July 1st, 2020 and that left Gery with a new perspective on his experience. In this episode, he describes his father’s death as a “deafening absence,” referring, not just to his passing, but to the changes in Gery’s daily routine; a routine that has had to be altered with every phase of his father’s decline. All of a sudden, he has no one to take care of, his time is his (except for work, and the odd activity in dealing with his dad’s passing). There’s a hole - one that’s filling with doubt, second-guessing, anger, sadness, and guilt. Gery and his co-host, Julie Barth, talk about some of the feelings and experiences a caregiver can go through after their family member/patient has died and how Gery is dealing with it. They’ll cover the anxiety and grief leading up to that point (known as anticipatory grief) as well as how to deal with the second-guessing and feelings that you may not have done enough. Old Nerd in the Gym is written and co-hosted by Gery L.

The world around us has changed in ways no one could have predicted even several weeks before. As more and more communities are ordered to remain at home to help minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus, stress levels are rising, and so is the clutter. Disorganization can add to an already exploding stress level in your home. If you're a caregiver, now you may have to deal with a lack of outside help, less sleep, and more worry. Isolation can be a bit stressful and amid the Coronavirus outbreak, we are all feeling anxiety and stress about being alone and keeping ourselves occupied and our minds stimulated. Tami Doling of Silverlinings Organizers joins us for the second time on Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast to talk with co-hosts Julie Barth and Gery Deer about the importance of staying organized to help combat stress during these difficult times.Tami Doling has been seen on Living Dayton on WDTN and is a professional tutor and organizer.  She can be reached for both in person and virtual organizing or for questions at Silverlingsorganizers.comOld Nerd in the Gym is written and co-hosted by Gery L.

Without question, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) siege is affecting every American but caregivers could be some of the hardest hit. Why? Because, in addition to themselves, they are generally caring for a high-risk patient. On this special edition of the Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast, co-hosts Gery Deer and Julie Barth discuss some of the dangers and preventative measures caregivers can take to minimize potential infection. They'll also talk about where to find the best, most knowledgable, non-political resources for information. This episode contains COVID-19 tips and precautions for the elderly and caregivers.  Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast is a production of Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness, LLC, and GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd., Copyright 2019 - all rights reserved.

One of the greatest challenges for caregivers is identifying resources available for various services, from home health care to meals on wheels. Struggling to find where to get help can increase stress and affect the health of both the caregiver and your family member. For this reason, most regions have some type of “agency on aging” that provides a clearinghouse and specialty services for seniors and caregivers. These organizations are typically not-for-profit and offer everything from basic information and education to low-cost or no-cost home care, emergency alert equipment and more.Jeff Schairbaum is the educational and outreach liaison for the Greene County Council on Aging (GCCOA) based in Xenia, Ohio. The GCCOA is one of countless agencies around the country that provides resources and education to caregivers and seniors. Jeff joins Gery Deer and Julie Barth for this edition of Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast to discuss what organizations like his can provide in general and, for our local listeners, his agency specifically.For detailed information on service resources for seniors and caregivers in your area do a Google search for “senior services” or “caregiver support” and use your city in the criteria. For more information on the Council on Aging in Greene County visit: www.GCCOA.orgOld Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast is a production of Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness, LLC, and GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd., Copyright 2019 - all rights reserved.

Yoga is a Hindu practice which helps to focus the mind, body, and spirit. Those who practice yoga will attest to its benefits in their overall wellness and how it helps ease the mind.

But 20 years ago, decided to put roots down in Yellow Springs. In her own words, “At 49, in the pursuit of aging well and as gracefully as possible, I began to intentionally move my body through walking often, riding my bike around the village, and practicing yoga.”Eventually, she began to teach the yoga classes she found so beneficial. Her class members frequently share stories of health challenges and what benefits yoga has brought to them. “I love being included in the process and journey of living well through yoga,” she told us. Today, Carmen teaches at the Antioch Wellness Center at Antioch College and at the Kula Cooperative. She has taken time out of her busy schedule and opened her doors at Kula Cooperative to share her insight on the benefits of Yoga. Production Note: This podcast was recorded in the main studio of Kula Cooperative. Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness Podcast is a production of Old Nerd in the Gym Fitness, LLC, and GLD Enterprises Communications, Ltd., Copyright 2019 - all rights reserved.
