April 8, 2022: This is an update on news for Betsy Wurzel. In September 2019, Betsy started her career as a Talk Show Host at Passionate World Talk Radio and the name of her show was Chatting with Betsy. At that time she wanted to bring more awareness to the many issues with Dementia Diagnosis and what all Caregivers were dealing with. She was at that time a caregiver for her husband Matt who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Since then Betsy has taken on a bigger role and a range of the types of subjects that need to be discussed. Betsy will always have interviews with Caregivers as that is still near and dear to her heart. She will always bring awareness concerning caregivers but also will seek out the subjects and topics that one does not hear a lot on Internet Radio. She interviews, Doctors, Lawyers, Authors, Advocates, Celebrities, Entrepreneurs, and more. We could have added more but, wanted to provide some examples of the interviews Betsy has handled. Betsy also works with a list of Publicists that contact Betsy on a daily basis to set up appointments for their clients to be interviewed by Betsy. We have left the older information on how and why Betsy became a Talk Show Host.
This Journey started when Betsy went into her car 5 or 6 years ago to raise awareness of Early Onset Alzheimer’s. I started showing Matt’s picture. I wanted to let people know Alzheimer’s can happen at any age and to dispel the myths that Alzheimer’s is an Old Person’s disease or it is a normal part of aging!I started to give Caregiving advice and I started to show my husband’s journey. I was an angry Caregiver and had to turn my anger into positive energy. I never expected to start a support group or be a Talk Show Host!
I am deeply humbled and honored to have been nominated and to receive the Caregiving Advocate Award from Caregiving.com. I dedicate my award to my husband Matt Sloan who is and will always be the catalyst behind everything I do!
Matt & I met in church. We were married on November 01, 1980. We have a son, Joshua who is amazing! Josh has special needs! I worked as an LPN for many years. I never heard of Alzheimer’s nor did I know anything about caregiving. My mother-in-law took me to Alzheimer’s school! There wasn’t much information at the time. I learned the hard way! My dad also had Alzheimer’s. I didn’t take care of my dad but I did visit & gave my mom support. Matt was diagnosed in 2010 but showed signs in 07 or 08. We had a difficult time with doctors listening to us! The doctors wouldn’t say Alzheimer’s due to Matt being 56. We were told he is too young! I didn’t know about Early Onset Alzheimer’s. Alzheimer’s was on Matt’s mom’s side. Matt was the first to have it young! I was an angry Caregiver! I decided to start doing videos to raise awareness! Education is desperately needed! I didn’t want people to feel alone! I was without support for 14 years! I like to share my experiences to help others! I am grateful Jeanne White saw my video & contacted me! I want to thank Lillian Cauldwell for Passionate World Talk Radio Station! Thank you both for giving me a wonderful opportunity to be a host! To contact Betsy by Email Click here

Your broadcast with Camphill Hudson was Brilliant
I am Jody Brookes’ proud mother, a learning support teacher myself for over 40 years and I just had the privilege to hear your radio broadcast with Jody, Nathan, and Kelly.
Both my husband and I stood stock still for those 28 minutes and loved every second of your interview. You asked great questions and got honest answers. And promoted Camphill Hudson and their players magnificently. I hope people heard and will contact them and also that the wider public to have a look at YouTube and benefit from it.
Well done it was a complete pleasure listening to you. And after reading your short biography especially about coping with Alzheimer’s, I take my hat off to you. It takes courage and love and perseverance.
