          Denver, CO – Many caregivers or their loved ones are one crisis away from getting help. Unfortunately, while everyone does their best in family care situations, unexpected events result.

Aging parents who resist help because of a desire to maintain their independence can fall or experience a change in health. An injury or health emergency can mean receiving support is no longer a choice but a necessity. Caregivers are so busy that they focus on immediate tasks and may overlook small details that indicate a loved one's health is worsening.

So how can family caregivers avoid crises by considering longer-term issues while juggling everything that must be done today? Caregivers—as much as the persons they care for—don't want to ask for help. Adult children feel a sense of responsibility or duty to care for elderly parents.

Listen to This Week's Episode of The Caring Generation Podcast

In this week's episode of The Caring Generation Podcast and in her YouTube video, Caregiving Expert Pamela D Wilson shares eight tips to avoid crises. The longer you wait to create a family plan or discuss caregiving challenges, the more likely caregivers and the persons they care for will face a situation that makes life more challenging.

A preview of tips discussed in the podcast includes:

  • Recognize that knowledge and experience gaps exist between generations
  • Be sensitive to the health needs of aging parents even if you don't understand them because you are healthy
  • Do not become overly helpful and make loved ones more dependent
  • Learn to set boundaries so that you can create a caregiving plan for the future

Unexpected situations happen every day. The goal is to avoid becoming a caregiver or an older adult in crisis. Use tips from the podcast and Pamela's session at the upcoming Rocky Mountain Conference on Dementia to reduce the likelihood of responding to unexpected situations that place families in crises.
