Caring for Dad When Mom Isn't Around Anymore

Unequal attention is given to male caregiver concerns whether caregiving responsibilities occur early or later in life. In Episode 91 of the program, Wilson discusses how to care for dad after a mother's death or how to support dad who is caring for mom diagnosed with a  terminal illness, advancing heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, or dementia.

Additionally, Wilson shares situations where fathers in young or middle-age who experience losing a wife or partner due to sudden death or chronic illness become responsible for raising children, working, and managing the household. How do these significant changes affect children in the family who accept responsibilities and grow up faster than their peers?

Discussed are the different ways that women and men respond to grief, signs of depression, and supporting fathers through the transition of living alone without spousal support. Additionally, discussions about managing medical care and caring for dad when health issues advance and a father needs caregiver support.

Single or married sons or daughters become effective support systems for widowed fathers. After losing a spouse, fathers seeking companionship or love can also be an emotional topic for adult children who believe that mom was the only woman for dad.

A discussion of these and other issues support why talking about caregiving issues within the family result in better family relationships and an understanding of the needs of parents. Wilson shares her personal experience with the loss of her mother and how this impacted her father's life and creating a support system with her siblings.
