Bea On Bereavement - The Power Of Planning - Upcoming Show Lineup

Hosted by author Beatrice Toney Bailey, Bea On Bereavement presents topics of interest for widows, caregivers, cancer victims, Alzheimer's sufferers, Parkinson's victims and their loved ones. Guests on the weekly show present timely and important information regarding planning in regards to a wide variety of mental and health care issues

Bea On Bereavement - The Power Of Planning has announced the upcoming show lineup.

Serious illness and death are never questions of ‘if’ but are rather a question of ‘when’. Nevertheless, very few people are really adequately prepared when these occur. Preparation and details are the last thing anyone wants to think about when dealing with the shock and the grief resulting from the illness or the death of a loved one. Author Beatrice Toney Bailey, often called 'The Skinny Oprah' understands this, having recently lost her husband to cancer. Ms. Bailey has released a new book entitled Farewell My Friend. The book is a step-by-step guide for those who wish to plan for the inevitable, and is an extremely valuable resource for those who may be called upon to act as caregiver or caretaker for terminally ill friends or family members. As a result of the release of her book, she has now taken on the role of television host in an effort to reach a wider audience.

“Farewell My Friend,” stated Ms. Bailey, “is a manual and a workbook. It should not be something that is read and then set aside.The book is an active document that readers will internalize as they prepare for the inevitable. We do not necessarily need to be caught unaware. The show is a natural outgrowth of the philosophy behind the book. Adequate preparation and planning are the keys to coming through these life changing situations that we all must eventually face."

Ms. Bailey's televisions show, Bea On Bereavement, is aired twice weekly on Monday at 9 pm Pacific and Thursday at 8 pm Pacific. The show can be seen on Comcast Channels 20 or 96 and Surewest Channel 19 in the Sacramento California area. For those not in the Sacremento area, the show is also simulcast at www.RCCTV.net/.
