The Caring Generation® How to Have Patience with Elderly Parents

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® podcast show for caregivers and aging adults. This coming Wednesday, March 31, 2021, the topic is How to Have Patience with Elderly Parents

Wilson releases a new podcast in The Caring Generation series every Wednesday, sharing tips and conversations about aging, caregiving, and family relationships to help caregiving families plan for what's ahead. The podcasts are available on Wilson's website and all major podcast sites.

How to Have Patience with Elderly Parents

Wilson empathizes with elderly parents who may feel like a burden to adult children caregivers who provide support. Adult children who juggle work, caregiving and family life often express concerns about being impatient with elderly parents. Many caregivers feel guilty about not being able to do enough and balance life responsibilities.

Insights are offered for family caregivers who may not realize the significant changes that elders experience physically, mentally, and emotionally with age and an increasing number of medical diagnoses. Patience in all life experiences is discussed from various perspectives that include daily nuisances, interpersonal relationship challenges, and life-changing events like a chronic disease diagnosis.

Learning patience poses many benefits, including better decision-making about care for parents, taking the initiative to learn new things, and improved stress management. The realization that impatience may improve by investing in time-saving or planning activities can benefit caregivers and care receivers who may experience impatience working together or with the healthcare system.

Interview with Dr. Joan Monin Yale School of Public Health 

Joan Monin is an Associate Professor in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department at Yale School of Public Health with expertise in research on emotion and relationship processes in caregiving and developing psychosocial interventions for caregivers and older adult care recipients. She joins Wilson to share research about caregiver – care receiver relationships and perceptions about distress and suffering.

Broadly, Monin's research examines how social relationships influence health in older adulthood, emphasizing the needs of family caregivers for older adults with chronic conditions, disability, and dementia. She has had continuous funding from the NIA for more than ten years, with projects examining how gender, stress, emotion, and support-related processes influence cognitive, psychological, and physical health in the context of older adult family caregiving. Monin has published findings in prominent journals (Annals of Behavioral Medicine, Journal of the American Geriatric Society, Health Psychology). 

Wilson works with caregiving organizations and corporations worldwide to educate about the role strain that caregivers experience and how to be proactive to plan ahead for health and aging issues.
