Raquel and Ryan welcomed Andrea, owner and founder of Wellness Strategies Group, as their first 2023 guest on episode 11 of The Senior Soup Podcast

Who is Andrea Bendig? 

Andrea Bendig is a master’s prepared registered nurse with 30 years of experience. 

She is a certified case manager and delegating nurse for those in assisted living and home settings, and she’s a certified dementia practitioner. 

Andrea noticed a gap in our healthcare system and launched Wellness Strategies Group.

She’s on a mission to bridge the proverbial gap in our healthcare system and support older adults and their families journeys throughout the aging process.

Her area of expertise is in geriatric and dementia care solutions. Her services are designed to help older adults achieve optimal health and wellness and ensure they have the proper care.

She provides her Maryland healthcare services in Howard, Montgomery, Baltimore, and Carroll Counties. Andrea also offers virtual support to her Maryland patients.

She creates individualized healthcare plans to help her patients get back on track. Andrea can, on behalf of her patients and their families, liaise between patients, Maryland hospital case management teams, and skilled nursing facility social workers. 

Andrea shared with Raquel and Ryan several real-life scenarios about how her Maryland healthcare consulting services can benefit Maryland families who often struggle to make critical decisions about their elderly relatives’ living situations. 

With over thirty years of nursing experience, Andrea is a critical resource for Maryland’s older adult communities (and their families) experiencing cognitive decline due to dementia and Alzheimer’s.

She empowers Maryland families to make the best decision for their loved ones.

Welcome to The Senior Soup Podcast

Our mission is to provide critical resources to help seniors and their families navigate the complexities of our healthcare system and the aging process and to advocate for our older adult population. 

My name is Raquel Micit.

And I am Ryan Miner.

The Soup of the Day is Senior Healthcare Advocacy

The spotlight is on our special guest, Andrea Bendig, the owner and founder of Wellness  Strategies Group

Welcome, Andrea! 

And Happy New Year. We are so glad you could join us as our first guest of 2023!

0:00:33 Andrea Bendig

Thank you for having me!

0:00:34 Ryan Miner:

First guest!

We’re kicking it off great this year. That’s exciting! 

0:00:38 Andrea Bendig

I think that the Senior Soup Podcast is a wonderful resource, so I’m really happy to be here!

0:00:43 Raquel Micit: 


Well, we’re kicking 2023 off with some healthcare advocacy, which is very important, and I think can probably connect with a lot of people when they’re starting their new year fresh and wanting to be as healthy as possible. 

So I’m excited to get to know a little bit about more of what you do. 

So can you share with the Senior Soup audience a little bit about your background, what you’re an expert in, the population you serve, how older adults can benefit from your services, and where can they get your services?

0:01:12 Andrea Bendig: 

I am a master’s prepared registered nurse with thirty years of nursing experience. 

I’m also a certified case manager and delegating nurse for those in assisted living and home settings. 

And I am a certified dementia practitioner. 

So in my personal and professional life, I noticed a gap in our healthcare system where patients were lost navigating their care, and they lacked education about their own health.

0:01:36 Andrea Bendig: 

So I left a director of nursing position with a mission to bridge this healthcare gap and founded Wellness Strategies Group. 

My area of expertise is in geriatric and dementia care solutions. 

Aging requires specialized care, and older adults can benefit from my services by having a dedicated clinician helping them achieve optimal health and wellness and making sure that they have the right care in place.

0:02:00 Andrea Bendig: 

Clients think of me as their private nurse consultant and advocate or a liaison between them and our complex healthcare system.

You can receive my services in person, and it is available in Howard County, Maryland, and the surrounding areas of Baltimore, Carroll, and Montgomery Counties.

0:02:16 Ryan Miner: 

I call her the Maryland Healthcare Advocate.

0:02:19 Raquel Micit: 

I think we just gave her that official title.

0:02:22 Ryan Miner: 

That’s right!

0:02:22 Andrea Bendig: 

Thank you!

0:02:23 Raquel Micit: 

So I have a scenario. 

My grandmother lives in Florida, and we are so thankful she lives with my parents. 

I’m originally from Florida, so I have a lot of family down there in Orlando. 

But let’s flip the scenario a little bit and say she lives here in Maryland. And I go out of town with my family. 

She is in and out of the hospital – and that is our current reality right now. 

But if she doesn’t have someone to be with – and I’m worried about her – and I’m going to be gone for a few weeks. Woo hoo! 

0:02:50 Raquel Micit: 

And she says she’s totally fine, and although she is very independent, she’s 95. 

What would a scenario like that look like? 

How could you come in and help and check in on her?

0:02:58 Andrea Bendig: 

That does often happen when family members live away from their loved ones. 

And so I would go into the home. 

  • I would do a comprehensive nursing assessment – so, clinical.

  • I check vital signs.
  • I listen to lungs. 

They’re coming out of the hospital.

I would review their hospital discharge instructions, review their medication list, and make sure that they are clear in what they should be doing. 

And if they’re not, then I would develop a plan to get them back on track because I deal with a.

0:03:27 Raquel Micit:

Because I deal with a lot of these situations with families since I own a home care company, too. 

And what I’m already getting from Andrea that I love is you’re so personable – so you can go in there and make it feel like it’s a friend coming in to check in on you instead of it being so formal. 

The reality is there’s a lot of pushback.

0:03:44 Ryan Miner: 

Andrea, to follow up on a similar style of questioning, my grandmother – she’s lived in the same home in Hagerstown, Maryland, since 1951. 

My granddad got out of the war; they got married. They bought a house on Glenside Avenue, and it’s been this beautiful Victorian home. They bought it from my grandmother’s uncle for $12,500. 

Can you imagine? 

Their house was paid off in the ‘60s!

0:04:11 Andrea Bendig: 


0:04:12 Ryan Miner:

Imagine that! 

But now that my grandfather has passed – he passed in December 2020 – my grandmother is experiencing cognitive decline

She was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010, and the condition has progressively worsened. 

She stays many times with my mother and my step-grandmother. We have a great family support network. 

Let’s just say if she didn’t have a support network, she was still living at the home, and maybe she had minimal check-ins, I wouldn’t think that that house, by herself, would be appropriate.

0:04:43 Ryan Miner: 

And maybe a senior living community or memory care would be more appropriate. 

We don’t know how to navigate this. 

What would we do? 

How could we rely on you to help our family make those critical decisions about my grandmother’s future well-being, safety, and living situation?

0:05:00 Andrea Bendig: 

So I would go into your grandmother’s home. 

I would get to know her. 

And with my comprehensive assessments, I’m looking at everything: 

  • I’m looking at the home environment for safety risks: Is it appropriate for someone who may have a cognitive impairment?
  • I’m looking at her medical conditions and her medication.
  • Is she able to take care of herself?
  • And so we also assess what’s called “level of functioning.”

0:05:23 Andrea Bendig: 

  • What is her ability to manage her own medication?
  • What is her ability to bathe and dress herself? 

If I thought that it was not appropriate, I would develop a plan which would have a step-by-step process and what would need to be done in order to make this a safe environment for her to remain there. 

Or maybe it’s not appropriate. 

Maybe the home – it was paid off in the 60s, which is wonderful – maybe there’s not a bathroom on the first floor. 

It might not be appropriate for somebody that could have a change in their cognition or a change in their physical condition.

0:05:56 Ryan Miner: 

Some families have a lot of questions about the process, and Raquel and I see this so often – they really are unsure where to begin. 

And we try to inspire confidence by talking with them and then referring resources. 

And that’s what this podcast is all about.

0:06:11 Raquel Micit: 

That’s exactly what it’s about!

And you don’t know what you don’t know, especially when you haven’t been through it before.

It’s very overwhelming, and every scenario can be different than the other. 

I actually wanted to talk about this because Ryan did share with me that his Grandma Joyce was in the hospital last week. 

So sorry, Ryan. 

Just this past Saturday, she was admitted to Williamsport Retirement Village for rehab.

0:06:33 Raquel Micit: 

But this is something that happens I hear a lot from families, and I try and help work through this with them. 

What if Ryan couldn’t get a clear status on Grandma Joyce’s condition at the rehab facility or any information about when it’s safe for her to come home? 

How could you help here? 

Because I don’t think it’s necessarily the facility’s fault. I just think there’s so much going on, and they’re so overwhelmed and so busy, and the family just wants one direct answer – and sometimes they can’t get it. 

So how could you come in and help In a scenario like that?

0:07:04 Andrea Bendig: 

I would visit Ryan’s grandmother at the facility. I would do my own bedside assessment. 

I can learn a lot from that, just looking at the environment to see what kind of care is being given. 

I also typically coordinate ahead of time before I visit and get the latest physical therapy notes, occupational therapy notes, medication lists, the most recent nursing notes, as well as the admission diagnosis, so I can have a really clear idea of what the current status is and if there’s progress being made.

0:07:34 Andrea Bendig: 

I will talk with the doctors, the nurses, the social workers, and the discharge planners there, just to make sure that everyone is on the same page and we have a clear understanding of what is the next step for Ryan’s grandmother. 

Then I’m able to relay that information to Ryan’s family in a way that they can clearly understand it, and they’ll able to be better prepared in looking at the next step – if that is going to be discharged home or a longer stay at rehab.

0:08:01 Ryan Miner: 

In our combined experience, I know working with Raquel at Amada Senior Care, we often find families that are unsure about the process. 

We typically get the most questions about what happens next. 

  • Who do I talk to?
  • How often should I expect communication?
  • Who inside the facility should we communicate with?
  • Who’s going to be relaying this important information?

I think basic questions you can’t take for granted, such as when will mom or dad, or spouse, or aunt, uncle, or friend – when will they be discharged? 

How long are they supposed to be here? What happens during that process? 

These are good questions that I know that you could come in and explain this thoroughly and then intercept information and communicate that directly – because people really do struggle sometimes with the process, right, Raquel? 

0:08:44 Raquel Micit: 

You’re [Andrea] essentially bridging this gap – and that’s what we’ve all spoken about. 

That’s what’s missing out here. 

So I love that you’re coming in, you’re connecting all the dots while serving as their advocate, their biggest advocate. 

You’re going in there, and you’re getting it done.

0:09:00 Ryan Miner: 

Until I met you and understood your services, I always had this question in the back of my mind – Raquel and I talked about this – who’s the person that could help tie all the pieces together for families? 

Who has the medical background? 

Who has the experience to understand the medication list? 

Raquel and I are not clinical; we’re not going to give any information that we may not be fully educated to give, and we don’t want to give the wrong information.

In Raquel’s words, you bridge the gap in the healthcare continuum. 

Andrea, let’s say, for example, that a family member I am supporting has a mental health diagnosis, but I am not sure if they’re taking medication as prescribed by their doctor. 

Maybe an Ennoble Care provider comes in (and we [Ennoble Care] do behavioral health integration). 

Still, I’m just not quite sure what they’re doing daily. 

Could you coordinate a check on my family member to ensure that they are taking the proper medication and the correct dosage for their diagnosis?

0:09:55 Andrea Bendig: 

Yes, I have experience working with clients with mental health diagnoses. 

  • So I would go into the home.
  • I would do a medication review.
  • I would help them make sure that their medication is set up in a way that works for them – because not everybody can work out of a Sunday through Saturday pill box. 

For some people, I actually fill their medication boxes, and then I do routine check-ins to assess their mental health.

0:10:19 Andrea Bendig: 

Does it look like they still are compliant with taking their medication? 

If not, if they get off track, sometimes I coordinate care with their psychiatrist, develop a plan to get them on track, and make sure that they’re taking medication as prescribed.

0:10:31 Ryan Miner:

This is an amazing service. 

There are so many people that have similar family situations or a friend in need, and they don’t know where to turn to, or they just don’t understand the medication that they’re taking.

0:10:42 Raquel Micit:

What about home care? 

As you know, I own Amada Senior Care, so we provide home care services

Sometimes the hardest part is sitting down with the client and the families and finding out that the client will not go see a doctor – refuses to. 

It’s a burden on the family. It’s a burden on the client. They just don’t know it. 

How could you come in and help support these families and the client to ensure they’re getting the appropriate medical care?

0:11:06 Andrea Bendig: 

I actually just had a situation like this.

0:11:08 Raquel Micit: 

Oh, tell us, tell us. Okay!

0:11:10 Andrea Bendig: 

I had a phone call from a daughter, and her dad was living independently, and she really was concerned about his overall health. 

And he doesn’t really believe in health care, so he didn’t want to go see a doctor. 

I went and did his assessment, and just by looking around his home, I could tell that he had a box full of prescriptions. 

And when I looked at them, they had expired in 2019.

0:11:37 Raquel Micit:


0:11:37 Andrea Bendig: 

And so when I did my complete assessment, his blood pressure was very high, and you could tell he’s lost weight. 

He wasn’t able to navigate his kitchen or navigate what was in the refrigerator. 

And the family was really stepping in and helping him by preparing meals and things like that. 

But I actually ended up referring him to Ennoble Care – because he wasn’t someone who would be able to or wouldn’t want to go to a doctor outside of his home, but he was receptive to having someone come to him.

0:12:06 Andrea Bendig:

So with that, I was able to talk with a nurse practitioner at Ennoble Care ahead of time, so we could talk about his situation and develop a plan that would help him be able to age in place in a safe way.

0:12:19 Ryan Miner: 

What I love about our podcast is we talk frequently about how to properly connect the dots in the continuum. 

What we all described here at this table today is part of the continuum.

That’s so important! 

That is one of the key messages that we are focused on at the Senior Soup

Raquel and I always are finding the resources that come in and bridge the gaps inside of the missing pieces in the continuum of care.

It’s a phrase that’s tossed around often. 

It’s really about resources.

0:12:46 Raquel Micit: 

There are a lot of fantastic doctors out there. There are fantastic nurses out there. There are fantastic home care companies out there. There are a lot of fantastic services. 

But connecting them together is where we are missing. 

And I love that you and a lot of us are coming together to bridge the gap, to make it better for our future.

0:13:09 Ryan Miner: 

And thanks for entrusting Ennoble Care!

0:13:11 Andrea Bending: 

Oh, you’re welcome!

0:13:12 Ryan Miner: 

It’s great; I appreciate that! 

I’m going to speak directly to my own family. 

My mom’s dad passed away in December 2020 at age 95. 

His wife, my grandmother, my mother’s mother, she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2010, and for many years, Andrea, at least until my grandmother’s condition worsened, my late grandfather was my grandmother’s primary caregiver. 

He was still very healthy until some of his final months until he passed. 

0:13:46 Ryan Miner: 

In 2019, I recall, my grandmother Maureen, her Alzheimer’s worsened. 

We noticed a pretty precipitous change in her condition. We noticed a change in her behavior. She was agitated, a few other symptoms. 

We weren’t really sure how to handle it or what the process was other than to take her to her neurologist and keep asking questions.

How would you be able to help us navigate that? 

How could you help other families navigate a change in someone’s Alzheimer’s or dementia condition and help them understand that behavior?

0:14:16 Andrea Bendig: 

I am a certified dementia practitioner and have many years of experience working with dementia patients. 

I would have completed an assessment and developed a plan to find the cause of your grandmother’s agitation. 

Then I will share strategies with the family members on how to deal with that agitation. 

But before I even get to that, what’s really important is to figure out why she is agitated. 

A lot of times, it is because there’s an underlying medical condition – and not so much just a progression of Alzheimer’s or dementia. 

And I’m a big advocate for that.

0:14:47 Andrea Bendig: 

When I see a changing behavior, especially for a client who has a diagnosis of dementia, I’m first doing a medical assessment because I want to make sure we’re not missing something – like a urinary tract infection – that’s causing this. 

Because how unfair would that be for us not to realize someone has an infection and just consider, oh, they have dementia? That doesn’t do the client any good; it’s really a disservice. 

If we ruled out an underlying medical problem and determined that this was agitation, I would really look for patterns as to what was causing this.

Was “command” put on that person right before that, so we can figure out what it is and prevent it from happening again? 

0:15:28 Andrea Bendig: 

And then I also teach the family members how to respond to that. There are certain techniques that you want to use when someone’s agitated. 

When everyone in the family is aware of what those techniques are and what works, it’s best for the clients.

0:15:40 Ryan Miner: 

Have you all ever heard of Teepa Snow

0:15:41 Andrea Bendig: 

Yeah, absolutely!

0:15:43 Ryan Miner: 

Teepa Snow is a world-renowned dementia educator, and she teaches people techniques about how to interact with people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. 

She’s fantastic! She’s very lively!

She’s very hands-on.

I took a course of hers in 2019 at one of the senior living communities in Montgomery County – and she is fantastic. 

I recommend anybody find her on the web and check her out if you’re interested in learning a little bit more about dementia techniques.

And Andrea, I don’t know if you’ve ever met her, but she’s really fascinating.

0:16:16 Andrea Bendig: 

I haven’t met her in person, but we’ve had some interactions online. 

Yeah, she’s amazing!

0:16:21 Raquel Micit: 

I hope everyone hits the rewind button a little bit here because, for me personally, I know that that is the most common issue that I come across in families is how to respond and how to work through strategies for dealing with their loved ones who are not being themselves. 

You and I should definitely talk more because I think you could help so many people out there that would benefit from this. 

It’s really hard. 

0:16:49 Andrea Bendig: 

It is hard. 

And people are just lost and confused and don’t know what to do.

And sometimes, their response to increased agitation actually makes it worse.

0:16:57 Raquel Micit: 

And there’s only so much you can Google, you guys. 

So sometimes you just have to speak to an expert. 

I kind of want to get in a little bit of legal talk – because while we were getting set up here, we all found that we have a lovely friend in common: Our girl! 

0:17:14 Ryan Miner: 

A friend of the pod!

0:17:15 Raquel Micit: 

Yeah, a friend of the pod, Sarah Broder, who we had on our Senior Soup podcast last year! 

We love Sarah! She works for Stein Sperling in Rockville, and her focus is on estate planning, trusts, and probate. 

So let’s say that Sarah is providing legal guidance for a client with no family nearby. 

And let’s say Sarah’s client worries that he doesn’t have anyone to list as a healthcare agent in his estate planning, which a lot of people, I bet, don’t even know is a thing.

0:17:42 Raquel Micit: 

So how would you help someone who doesn’t have any family and who has no one to list as their healthcare agent?

0:17:48 Andrea Bendig: 

I can act as their healthcare agent. 

In order to do that, I usually have a complete assessment with them – because I really want to get to know them. 

I want to learn what their wishes are so that I can be a strong healthcare agent for them and advocate and make sure that their wishes are followed through.

0:18:06 Ryan Miner: 

Okay, it is that time when I admit something to you, Andrea, Raquel. 

You guys might already know this – I mean, if it’s not already obvious – but I have a little something called high blood pressure – even at the age of 37, and it’s something that is genetic in my family. 

I take a medication that does increase blood pressure. I don’t want anything to happen to me. And I promised my wife I’d make it to at least 40.

I did! You’re laughing, but I promised Kim [Ryan’s wife] that I would make it to 40. 

Plus, who would ever co-host The Senior Soup with Raquel if I kicked it? 

0:18:40 Raquel Micit: 

It… it’d be so boring if it were just me. 

0:18:42 Ryan Miner: 

There’s no way…I know. 

You might have to put an ad out.

Andrea, I would need someone to guide and support me toward living a healthier lifestyle in 2023, or at least find the right medication and get that under control, in addition to seeing my primary care provider. 

Is that something you could help me with, other clients with – putting together wellness plans for them to get on the shape to good health?

0:19:04 Andrea Bendig: 

Yes. I do offer health coaching for disease management. 

And, Ryan, obviously, all of us want you to be around for a long time!

0:19:12 Ryan Miner: 

That’s right!

0:19:12 Andrea Bendig: 

So in your case, I would review your medication. 

I would check your blood pressure. 

I would also make sure that you’re monitoring your own blood pressure at home, making sure that your device is accurate. 

Because I use the old-fashioned sphygmomanometer when I check blood pressures – and you’d be surprised how many people don’t sit in the right position or use the right size cuff to check their blood pressure at home.

And it actually gives them a false high reading.

0:19:37 Ryan Miner: 

Now it’s the new year. 

Raquel and I, we’re going to go running once or twice or three times a week, right?

0:19:42 Raquel Micit: 

I didn’t say that.

0:19:43 Ryan Miner: 

No, you didn’t say that.

Listen, in the Army, I had enough running for a lifetime.

0:19:48 Raquel Micit: 

I’ll walk fast.

0:19:49 Ryan Miner: 

You walk fast. We’ll walk to Starbucks and back. 

0:19:52 Raquel Micit:


0:19:54 Ryan Miner: 

Maybe caffeine might not be the best for blood pressure.

0:19:57 Raquel Micit: 

I need to get better about drinking water – more water.

0:20:01 Ryan Miner: 

You don’t drink…?

0:20:02 Raquel Micit: 

I don’t drink enough water.

0:20:03 Ryan Miner: 

She [Andrea] showed us up this morning. 

Andrea came in, and here I am; I’m drinking coffee, and Raquel is drinking coffee.

0:20:08 Raquel Micit: 

I know. She shows up with a big thing of water. I’m like, this is our girl.

0:20:12 Ryan Miner: 

I do drink enough water, but still, enough is probably not always enough. 

I do carry a jug around with me.

0:20:19 Andrea Bendig: 

That’s good!

0:20:20 Raquel Micit: 

I think I’ve seen that jug in your car before.

0:20:22 Ryan Miner: 

You have!

Listen, we’re on the road a lot, so I have to drink…  


And hydrate. 


Yeah, hydrate!

0:20:29 Raquel Micit: 

Andrea, we learned quite a bit today about your services and how you support our older adult community, which we love. 

You are really bridging the gap in health care. To me, that is monumental. 

Before we leave, I’m going to have you give a few takeaways, if you don’t mind, three takeaways for them [the audience] to take from this podcast today.

0:20:48 Andrea Bendig: 

  1. So I would want them to know that they don’t need to feel lost navigating this complex healthcare system. And it’s okay to ask for help.
  2. If they need help and have any medical diagnosis, you should seek out someone with a medical degree to be your consultant or advocate.
  3. And lastly, you deserve the best care for yourself – so make sure that you get it.

0:21:09 Ryan Miner: 

That’s great, easy to understand!

0:21:12 Raquel Micit: 

And you do virtual appointments, too, correct?

0:21:14 Andrea Bendig: 

I do!

0:21:14 Raquel Micit: 


0:21:15 Ryan Miner: 

What’s the website?

0:21:16 Andrea Bendig: 

The website is

0:21:20 Ryan Miner:

And they can sign up for information and read about your services to better understand what you offer. 

And they can contact you and reach out

And you’re always available?

0:21:30 Andrea Bendig: 

I am!

I don’t have standard office hours, so a lot of my clients consider me they’re private, on-call, triage nurse.

0:21:36 Ryan Miner: 

And you can even go to the hospital, right?

0:21:38 Andrea Bendig: 

I can, absolutely!

0:21:39 Raquel Micit: 

She can do it all!

0:21:40 Ryan Miner: 

She does it all. 

You women are controlling the world – it’s true! 

0:21:44 Raquel Micit: 

Well, thank you so much, Andrea! 

New episodes of the Senior Soup Podcast are released Mondays at 9:00 a.m.

0:21:51 Ryan Miner: 

That is right, Raquel! 

Raquel can listen to the Senior Soup Podcast. 

What’s the jingle? I forget. 

0:21:57 Raquel Micit:

The Senior Soup! Doot Doot! [Singing]

0:21:59 Ryan Miner: 

I still think we have the patent that.

 Raquel, Andrea, makes her kids listen to the Senior Soup – but she says that they like it.

0:22:07 Raquel Micit: 

They love it, I promise you! 

They’re always like, ‘Can’t hear, turn it up!’ 

0:22:12 Ryan Miner: 

Another thing to educate on is where to find our podcast, and that is on Apple Podcasts

We are on Spotify

If you tell Alexa to play the Senior Soup and you say, ‘Alexa, play the Senior Soup [Podcast] on Amazon Music,’ Raquel’s lovely voice, as you already heard, will be featured. 

The latest episode will be featured.

We’re also on TuneIn and all the major podcast directories. 

We’re growing! 

We had a lot of good feedback on our Sunrise Senior Living podcast with Tom Berry.

0:22:40 Raquel Micit:


And I’m excited! 

We’ve got a great lineup this year!
