John Roger and Pain Management (Aired on July 1 and July 2 2017)

Pain Management with Physical Therapy (Aired on July 1 and 2, 2017)
John Roger, who has a doctorate in physical therapy, visits RadioRotary with the message that physical therapy is often the right way to treat chronic or acute pain
iead of or in addition to potentially addictive opioid medication. Beyond to the
joint pains that we commonly think of when seeking physical therapy, the
techniques are also useful for treating severe headaches, the chronic pain of
fibromyalgia, and the pain from tendon, ligament, or muscle damage, which is
often caused by sports injury. In many cases, the key to pain relief comes from
posture improvement, stress relief, and lifestyle changes that are addressed by a
doctor trained in physical therapy. A medical doctor may prescribe physical
therapy, but a prescription is not necessary to obtain treatment.

Vanderbilt Gardens (Aired on April 1st and April 2nd 2017)

Vanderbilt Gardens volunteers Susanne Gillespie and Anita Whelan
come to the RadioRotary studio to discuss the beautiful gardens they
help tend at the Vanderbilt Mansion National Historic Site in Hyde Park,
NY.

The Vanderbilt Mansion was the impressive summer “cottage” of  Frederick and Louise Vanderbilt. Frederick maintained and improved the formal gardens on the site in the early 20th century, but after Frederick died in 1938 there were no buyers for the property. President Franklin Roosevelt, a neighbor, arranged to have the estate made into a national historic site, but during World War II the site languished Although there was money to restore the brickwork for the formal gardens, the gardens themselves were not replanted until 1984, when
three volunteers approached the Park Service about taking it over.
Today volunteers plant about 6,000 annual flowers each year and maintain the cherry trees (nearly the only plants from Vanderbilt’s time), the perennial garden, and the rose garden. Admission to the gardens is free. The operation is funded by a giant plant sale each
Memorial Day weekend and a formal tea party in September. Planting and maintenance is entirely the work of volunteers.

Circle of Friends for the Dying (Aired on December 31, 2016, and January 1, 2017)

Circle of Friends for the Dying (Aired on December 31, 2016, and January 1, 2017)

RadioRotary interviews Laurie Swartz and Rev. Lynda Carré about the Death Cafés they help run as part of Circle of Friends for the Dying in Ulster and Dutchess Counties. A Death Café is a gathering of a few people in a home, a church, a restaurant, or other venue where the conversation over tea or coffee and cake is all about dying. Our population is growing older every year and death will come to all of us—many who are not very old die as well—but few are prepared for it and many don’t even want to think or talk about it. The Death Café experience, often with a speaker, is offered about once a month at various locations around Ulster and Dutchess counties. A new project for the Circle of Friends for the Dying is a home in Kingston where a person who lives alone and is close to dying will be able to live with one or two others, which many would prefer to dying in a hospital or nursing home or dying alone at home.
