The Caring Generation® Radio Show: Work Family Conflict

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® family talk radio program for caregivers and aging adults this coming Wednesday, October 7th, on the Bold Brave Media Network. The program airs live at 9 p.m. EST. The Caring Generation® aired initially from 2009 to 2011 on 630 KHOW-AM in Denver, Colorado.

Caregiving: Work Family Conflict

Adult children helping aging parents may not call themselves a caregiver. When something serious happens to an elderly parent's health like a heart attack or a stroke, the belief that—"I'm simply helping out"—turns the adult child's life upside down.

Suddenly, a working adult child is called a caregiver by doctors and the healthcare system. The newly identified caregiver devotes time to help an aging parent. Caregiving efforts may interrupt work and career.

Conversations that could have happened early with elderly parents about "when you need care what do you want," still may not occur. Caregivers don't know what they don't know. Little understanding of the depth and time caregivers may devote exists. Caregiving can consume life and interrupt a career when elderly parents' needs continue to grow, and no discussions have occurred about caregiving responsibilities.

Caregiver Stress and Burnout

Caregiver stress and burnout exist for family and professional caregivers. Caregivers accept family responsibility to provide care.

Professional caregivers like CNAs and other care staff working in home health companies assisted living communities, and nursing homes experience stress due to time pressure, a lack of training, and a lack of support from the workplace. These caregivers are placed into situations they're not taught to navigate.

As a result, older adults and their family members may be frustrated and angry. Working caregivers feel the same way when they are on the receiving end of upset clients. How do professional caregivers manage?

Pamela's Guest is Dr. Catherine O'Brien from the Mather Institute

The guest for this caregiving radio program is Dr. Catherine O'Brien, PhD., MPH Assistant Vice President and Director of the Mather Institute. She shares information about the stress experienced by staff working in senior living communities.

In addition to overseeing translational research and other initiatives within the Institute, Dr. O'Brien is responsible for developing collaborative research partnerships with universities and professionals in the field of aging. She serves as managing editor for Seniors Housing & Care Journal, a peer-reviewed publication focusing on applied research and best practices in the areas of seniors housing and long-term care. Dr. O'Brien's recent research topics include wellness in residents of Life Plan Communities and senior living workforce development.

Join Pamela on The Caring Generation for intelligent conversations about aging, caregiving, and relationships. The Caring Generation® radio program airs live at 6 p.m. Pacific, 7 p.m. Mountain, 8 p.m. Central, and 9 p.m. Eastern every Wednesday night.  Replays of the weekly programs are available on all major podcast sites.
