PRLog - Jan. 18, 2012 - Fort Lauderdale, Fl. - Today's Caregiver magazine, the nation's longest-running national caregiving magazine, www.caregiver.com, announced that its 98th celebrity caregiver cover interview is with music icon Barry Manilow. Since 1996, each issue of the glossy print magazine has been graced with cover interviews of celebrities discussing their own personal caregiving or health challenges and how they are working to improve the lives of family caregivers. The current issue with Mr. Manilow and previous issues are also available online at http://www.caregiver.com
“Barry Manilow not only wrote the songs of my generation, but is still a vibrant presence on the music scene. We are honored by his sharing his story of living with atrial fibrillation (AFib) with our audience,” states Gary Barg, Editor-in-Chief of Today’s Caregiver magazine and caregiver.com who conducted the interview with Mr. Manilow. “I think after reading our cover interview, caregivers will get to see a personal side to Barry as a knowledgeable and caring advocate.” Manilow is the patient spokesperson for Get Back in Rhythm, a national AFib education campaign to encourage people to learn about the importance of managing AFib, including the value of getting your heart into rhythm. As Manilow states in the interview about what to do if you find yourself experiencing the symptoms of AFib,”Go to your doctor; you got to take this one seriously”.
The audio recording of the interview can be heard at http://www.caregiver.com.
Among the other cover interviews that Barg has conducted for the magazine are Academy Award winning actress Olympia Dukakis, Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter, Rob Lowe, Barbara Eden, Leeza Gibbons, Delta Burke, Dixie Carter, Clay Walker, Della Reese, Debbie Reynolds, Joe Montana, Dana Reeve, Clay Aiken, Patricia Richardson and Former Senator Bob Dole.
Keynote speakers for the magazine’s 114 Fearless Caregiver Conferences have included Della Reese, Debbie Reynolds, Clay Aiken, Linda Dano, Clay Walker, Leeza Gibbons, Robert Urich and Patricia Richardson.
Barg explains, "The thing I love to see at the events is when you have 400 family caregivers and one celebrity caregiver, what you actually have is 401 caregivers. Caregiving and love of family is the great emotional equalizer. In fact, family caregivers spent more time talking with Debbie Reynolds at the Fearless Caregiver Conference about her mom’s care than about “Singing in the Rain.”
Fearless Caregivers Conferences have been held in cities across the US including: Fort Lauderdale, New Haven, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Boca Raton, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Miami and Danbury. The next Fearless Caregiver Conference is scheduled for February 23rd in Palm Beach Gardens at the PGA National Resort and Spa. Tickets are available at http://www.FearlessCaregiver.com.
