Intro Podcast to ElderCare101.com0
Hello, and welcome to the very first episode of Elder Care 101. My name is Price Jett. My background is that I was a former C-level executive in the research space. In fact, I’ve been in large corporate America in various roles for nearly thirty years. In my most recent position, we served customers in the Fortune 500 space. Starting in January 2016, I left large corporate America to pursue this passion, and to pursue an unction which has been pulling at me to leave that position and to make a difference. Specifically in the lives of seniors. To make their lives better, and particularly, to help over-stressed caregivers.
This is the initial podcast for ElderCare101 and I hope it helps you understand me a bit better…
All the Best to you

My own personal story is that I have had the privilege to help my own parents aged 83 and 88, but as I do, I find the system very complex and very difficult to maneuver. I’ve had to learn more about Medicare than I thought I would ever have to learn. Visits to the doctor, even, are complex. Keeping track of pills and doses is not very easy, and we have had at least three falls, and we’ve been admitted to the hospital every time. We’ve also been through extended physical therapy, and the bills have been significant, and unclear to me, as the untrained but official bill reader. What a journey it’s been, and the journey continues.
I decided I would create Elder Care 101 to take as much stress out the lives of caregivers and senior as possible. My vision is to create a very practical and tactical collection of resources to make this journey easier. We’ll also be placing some reviews of helpful products and technologies. The goal is to keep this site free for families as long as possible. We also have as a goal to seize those opportunities that we have to smile and find small portions of joy wherever we can. To that end, you will see some day-in-the-life podcasts explaining where we are in the journey. When we find moments of joy and laughter, we will grab those and share them. We also want to hear from you, and this site is meant to be a two-way conversation.
Lastly, I want to make sure that we give dignity to seniors where this is lacking. We’ll do this through stories and podcasts to help people in all stages of life to see seniors for the true blessing they really are. One of those stories and podcasts will be the love story of Floyd and Fanny May, two very special people that I knew, and I hope you enjoy those. It’s also to help us all to understand that we’re all headed in that same direction. We should see our seniors as special, worthy, dignified, and the incredible treasures that they are, in both our families and in society. After all, that’s how most people would want to be seen when they’re in the same place one day.
As mentioned, this is meant to be a two-way conversation. Reach out to me through the website and tell me what you’re struggling with. Tell me what products and services you need most and can’t find in the marketplace, and I’ll see what I can do. All these things will help us provide content that has the largest impact. Right now it’s not clear to me how this site will support itself, so I’m supporting it as long as I can. We do have a Patreon button on the site, and if you help there, great. If you can’t, no problem.
Well, I think I’ve said all that I really know at this point in time. Hopefully you understand a little of my background, a little of where my head and my heart is, and those are really my goals for this intro podcast. I have no idea who will be listening to this, if anyone will at all. If you are listening, go to Eldercare101.com and let me know. In my mind, life is a series of adventures really, and nothing ever happens but for a reason. I’m looking forward to the adventure ahead through Elder Care 101 and getting to know you in the audience a lot better. I look forward to hearing from you. All the best to you and your family. Thanks.
Talk to you soon.
