The Agewyz Podcast with Jana Panarites
About This Show
Author and caregiving guru Jana Panarites interviews experts in the field of aging and America's unsung heroes: people caring for family members, friends or relatives amid the demands of their own lives. In these frank and lively conversations Ideas are sparked, information shared and stories told--of setbacks, triumphs and unwavering courage. As one of America's 40 million+ caregivers herself, Jana believes caregivers must have a voice in shaping the policies and programs that affect them, and that by sharing our stories caregivers can shake up America's system of care, which is based on a bygone era, and help create new models of care based on the reality of our lives today. Every caregiver has a story. Click here to share yours: http://www.agewyz.com.

Episode 112: Tony And Elia - The Sequel
1 day ago
When we spoke with fine artist Tony Luciani in 2016, his then 93-year-old mother Elia, who has dementia, had recently moved in with him. Tony had just produced his book, “Mamma: In The Meantime,” a collection of photographs he’d taken of his mother, and while he juggled caring for her with making art, his mother began taking photographs with a point-and-shoot camera Tony bought for her, emerging as an artist in her own right. In today’s episode, Tony gives us an update on his and Elia’s life. He tells us how his work has changed since we spoke in 2016 and what his mother’s life is like now, and he offers his views on why his photographs of Elia continue to be popular (her image recently graced the cover of Proto Magazine, a Time, Inc. publication of Massachusetts General Hospital). Tony also talks about his and Elia’s dual exhibition at Ontario’s Durham Art Gallery, and what he wants people to see in his photographs of his mother.
