On the Jan. 20 edition of "Let's Talk: Monday with Smitty," Smitty interviewed Bobbie Orsi, Director of Community Relations of Home Instead Senior Care. Smitty and Bobbie covered areas and issues concerning the need for good caregivers as the need has grown dramatically along with the aging population in the Berkshires (Berkshire County along with Cape Cod have the oldest demographic in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts). They also discussed how they can reverse that trend and talked about the early indicators of Dementia and Alzheimer's from a population standpoint among other topics.
