Caring for Elderly Parents: Workplace Caregiver Programs

Golden CO- Caregiving expert, Pamela D Wilson, offers unique caregiver programs for corporations with employee wellness programs focused on helping working caregivers caring for elderly parents.  

Never-ending to-do lists of running errands, attending medical appointments with elderly parents, and providing hands-on care consume 20 to 40 hours each week outside of full-time employment. Working caregivers feel unprepared for the roles and responsibilities associated with being a caregiver—including hands-on care and medical tasks. The emotional aspects of caregiving are equally, if not more significant.

According to Caregivers in Wilson's Groups:

  • Being a caregiver is the hardest job you will ever have. Not much help out there. It's sad.
  • Caregiving takes such a toll on you. It's hard to explain without sounding like a complainer. Emotions are going all over the place.
  • Funny, I should find this post at 2:35 a.m. while searching for caregiving information.
  • I am the caretaker of my aging mother, and knowing someone out there can give me advice without running to her doctor all the time for simple things really helps.

Reliable Information All in One Place

Working caregivers and spouses caring for spouses full-time are pressed for time. Caregivers search the Internet—late into the night and early into the morning—hoping to find thorough answers to common questions.

The challenge is that few sources exist that create awareness about the stages of caregiving. Even fewer sources provide complete caregiver programs offering beginning to end insights into the roles and responsibilities of being a caregiver.

Taking Care of Elderly Parents—Stay at Home  

Wilson's caregiving program, Taking Care of Elderly Parents – Stay at Home is a deep-dive caregiving program that provides step-by-step guidance for all caregivers – family and professional caregivers. A lack of awareness about caregiving programs and limited time are two of the most commonly cited concerns for caregivers about seeking help.

Another quote from a caregiver:

  • I am a nurse and have cared for many people over the years, but none of this prepared me for the 24/7 care of my spouse and the losses I have had to do that. Loss of job. Loss of finances and loss of professional contacts and independence. At first, I thought, wow, I have spent a lifetime caring for and helping others, and there was no help for me.

?Caregiver Education Events and Programs

Wilson's programs offered through corporations and organizations for working caregivers provide support at any time of the day. Broadcast quality video conferencing awareness programs meet individual corporate working caregiver concerns.

Beyond video conferencing programs, ongoing support is available through Wilson's Taking Care of Elderly Parents – Stay at Home program. Caregivers find it easier to juggle work and caregiving when ongoing support is available. Learning practical day-to-day skills to care for elderly parents and advocacy skills to navigate the healthcare system is essential for caregivers. Wilson's Stay at Home program is in the final stages of an update and will be available by the end of May 2020.
