Finding A Nursing Home And Treating Trauma, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, Randy Yohe spoke with Christie Eastman, the Cabell Huntington Hospital Counseling Center manager, who is on a mission to train West Virginia mental health professionals in more effectively treating trauma.

Also, many families have to move a loved one into a nursing home because of dementia. The experience often comes with grief and loss and a sense of failure. For his series Getting Into Their Reality: Caring For Aging Parents News Director Eric Douglas spoke with Julia Smythe, the dementia program director and Natalie Petty, the director of Admissions and Marketing, for the Marmet Center nursing home with a memory care program for people with dementia.
