Supporting Caregivers

Nov 7, 2018

What is the nature of care? Do we “give” care generously, or is it a list of tasks to squeeze into the day? Is there a difference between “care for” and “care about”? Is it a job? A relationship?

For friends and families who serve as caregivers to sick or infirm loved ones, the answer to those questions is All of the Above. If you or someone you know has ever served as a caregiver, you know the physical, emotional and spiritual toll caregiving can take.

This November, as we observe National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, remember to support the people in your life who provide these tender mercies to others.

This is the week that Memphis diners in the know look forward to every year.

Starting yesterday until November 11, over 50 downtown restaurants will be offering special menus for both dinner and lunch. Many of the offerings are at a discount, designed to show new diners the best of what they have to offer.

Repurposing or re-activating old buildings is just part of his vision for improving the city in the near future. This week on WKNO-FM's Behind the Headlines, Strickland says that with the right concepts, old buildings can become economic boosters for their neighborhoods, just like the Tennessee Brewery Downtown. 

This week on WKNO-TV's Behind the Headlines, host Eric Barnes caught up with Eric Miller, David McKinney and Ernest Strickland with the Greater Memphis Chamber.  

Strickland, senior vice president of workforce development, says his role is to find and fulfill the needs and demands of companies, however that may translate. Strickland adds that it’s not all about attracting new companies; the Greater Memphis Chamber has to keep current Memphis businesses happy.
