Show Notes

Dr. Odell Glenn, Jr. holds four degrees in various engineering disciplines, including a doctorate in chemical engineering. He is an engineering instructor at a research university.  In addition to his scholarly achievements, he serves as an ordained minister at an AME church. He is an author, motivational speaker, radio host personality, and primary caregiver to his parents. Dr. Glenn, Jr. is also the founder and CEO of a non-profit called The 3 Tier Foundation, which provides SAT prep courses for high school students, financial education workshops for entrepreneurs and small businesses, and respite care for caregivers.

A few highlights from the show:

1. Some caregivers die BEFORE the recipient of care because they are not getting the care they need. Caregivers must maintain balance and take time for themselves.

2. There may come a time when you will need professional help to care for a parent or loved one to ensure they are cared for properly. Never say never and let go of your pride. It is ok.

3. The joy is in the journey of the process. Accept that you will not understand everything.
