Golden, Colorado – January 21, 2019

Pamela D. Wilson, the caregiving expert, announces a new program, caregiver-911.com, to support family caregivers experiencing uncertainty, stress, and anxiety about caregiving responsibilities and duties.

I Can't Be A Caregiver Anymore

Caregivers hesitate to admit they need help because of the fear of upsetting loved ones or being viewed as incapable of managing caregiving responsibilities. Embarrassment exists by caregivers who readily admit to feelings of stress and anxiety in support group settings, but rarely feel comfortable expressing these feelings to an aging parent or spouse.  

"I can't be a caregiver anymore," represents how many caregivers feel. When caregivers do express their feelings, they are humiliated by family members who tell them they should feel grateful instead of frustrated. 

Caregivers feel guilty about their feelings—as if the role of caregiver is trouble-free. Caring for an aging parent, spouse, or family member is one of the most difficult and unexpected roles in life.

Caregiver Support Is Here: https://www.caregiver-911.com

Support programs allow caregivers to express their feelings, to be heard, and to gain skills to improve caregiving situations. Other caregivers understand the situation where persons looking in from the outside may judge or shame the caregiver for expressing feelings of caregiving stress or burnout.

Pamela's program, www.caregiver-911.com, opens the door for caregivers who might be hesitant to seek support.

She relates caregiving for her parents, now deceased, to the experience she has today resulting from twenty years of being on call 24/7 supporting caregivers and aging adults.

"Working with caregivers and aging adults the past 20 years, was like being the 911 operator, except I solved caregiving problems. If I knew what I know today when my parents were alive, their lives and care would have been totally different.

As a family caregiver, before caregiving became my profession, I thought I knew everything. Twenty years of experience proves that I knew very little. It is impossible for caregivers to know what they don't know. This gap in knowledge makes advocating for the care of loved ones difficult and stressful."

Balancing Caregiving and Work

Caring for aging parents, spouses, and other family members is overwhelming for caregivers who attempt to balance work and caregiving. Caregivers lose friends, end participation in social activities, and become isolated because of caregiving responsibilities. Statistics confirm caregivers experience mental and physical health declines resulting from the stress of caregiving.

Caregivers view support as positive. Concern is expressed about a lack of time to attend in person support programs. Pamela's program offered at https://www.caregiver-911.com provides caregivers with valuable support without leaving home.

Caregivers can take advantage of A FREE subscription to The Caring Generation® library. The library has over 30 categories of solutions for family caregivers in subjects like caregiving, memory loss and Alzheimer's, family relationships, legal and estate planning, and care in the home.
