Caregiving TV on the Roku Channel: No One Told Me Caregiving Would Be Like This

Caregiving TV by caregiving expert, Pamela D. Wilson, is now on the Roku Channel. Featured on the channel are a variety of videos ranging from "No One Told Me Caregiving or Aging Would Be Like This" to "How to Help Aging Parents and Spouses Stay at Home."

Caregiving is an unexpected role in life that arises suddenly.  Caregiving is a life role that arises unexpectedly and throws unprepared families into chaos. 

No One Told Me Caregiving or Aging Would Be Like This

Aging parents don't want to need care. They don't want to be a burden to their families. And they don't want to ask for help.

Caregivers easily feel overwhelmed by caregiving responsibilities And they don't want to ask for help.

Why? Admitting that help is needed in caregiving situations is difficult. Caregivers and aging want to feel like they can do it all. No one in a caregiving situation wants to look like they are not capable of doing what needs to be done. 

But, caregivers and aging adults don't know everything about caregiving. This gap between wanting to do it all and not knowing all of the complexities of caregiving can result in unintended harm to loved ones.

Caregivers Are Afraid of Making Mistakes

Fear exists about asking for help for so many reasons. Then there is guilt associated with caregiving. Caregivers are afraid of making mistakes so they wait. They are also overly optimistic about their abilities. Sometimes caregivers and aging adults wait too long. Mistakes are made that cannot be reversed.

Accepting the changes involved with caregiving and aging is hard. Asking for help is even harder even though the benefits of caregiving support can significantly make caregiving easier.

Caregiving expert, Pamela D. Wilson knows.

"For over 20 years I have been helping caregivers and aging adults. By the time I am contacted many tell me that they've had my business card in their wallet for a year. Or that several people told them to contact me and they waited until the situation became unbearable to do anything."

Caregiving Support Makes Caregiving Easier

Pamela D. Wilson is the person that single adults, spouses, and married couples trusted to manage care for more than 20 years. Because of her specialized knowledge working in hospitals, nursing homes, care facilities, and in client homes she knows information that most aging adults and family members who are caregivers don't.  

Many aging adults are hesitant to trust online caregiving programs, support groups, and courses because they have fallen prey to agencies selling services, information, and referral sites and middlemen brokering products. This is an unfortunate factor of the online world because so many caregivers and aging adults need help today but are fearful and don't know who to trust.

Online Caregiving Support Groups and Courses

In the work that Pamela does with caregivers and aging adults, she shares information that most caregivers and aging adults don't know – even though they think they know. Solutions and step-by-step processes are shared for working with the healthcare industry including doctors. The same steps are provided in Pamela's course, "Stay at Home," about how to help aging adults and aging parents stay at home.

Pamela also offers the course, "Power of Attorney: Secrets for Success" that is for anyone thinking about choosing a power of attorney in fact or for anyone appointed who has no idea of the responsibilities. Power of attorney is more than a piece of paper, it is a serious responsibility.  

Benefits of Online Caregiving Support Groups and Courses

Rather than being unprepared for caregiving situations, through participation in Pamela's programs, aging adults and family caregivers will have peace of mind and gain confidence in their abilities to achieve the results they want. They can avoid what they don't want: needing more care, more costly care expenses, hospital stays, and moving into care communities and nursing homes.

In the perfect world of caregiving, aging adults and parents stay at home, remain as independent as possible, remain in control of their care situations, and make good decisions. Without the support of a caregiving expert and participation in support groups and courses, reaching this perfect world of caregiving may feel challenging and at times hopeless.
