The Caring Generation® How to Take Care of My Parents

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® podcast show for caregivers and aging adults. This coming Wednesday, April 14, 2021, the topic is How to Take Care of My Parents featuring an interview with Dr. Anil Patil of Carers Worldwide adding an international perspective about the value of family caregivers.

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 Take Care of My Parent

This week on the program Wilson answers the question of how to take care of my parents and manage the effects of being a caregiver related to physical and emotional stress experienced by the caregiver that relate to concerns with career, work, income, pursuing education, participating in social activities, and family and friend relationships. While there are many positive benefits of being a caregiver, all caregivers can feel stressed and stretched by the ongoing duties and responsibilities. 

Stress experienced by caregivers impacts their health and the care provided to aging parents, spouses, and other family members. The belief that caregiving is a duty not to be questioned is common in many families. Caregivers who feel supported and able to discuss caregiving experiences have better relationships and provide better care for aging parents and spouses.

Chronic stressors, including poor physical health, emotional stress, a lack of social support, and being unemployed, may result in mental health concerns or suicidal thoughts for caregivers. COVID has increased attention to the mental pressures of being a caregiver and the need for caregiver support programs. Respite, meaning being able to take a break from caregiving, offers caregivers the ability to take care of their own needs while continuing to be dedicated to the needs of aging loved ones. 

Interview with Dr. Anil Patil of Carers Worldwide

Dr. Anil Patil of Carers Worldwide joins Wilson to share insights about carers living in India, Nepal, and Bangladesh. Carers Worldwide, founded in 2012, seeks to improve the lives of carers emotionally, physically, economically, and socially through various programs with a proven and scalable track record of success.  Dr. Patil shares research and carers' experiences as the result of COVID, including the increase in the number of caregivers and the emotional and economic stresses resulting from the pandemic.

The experience of carers differs by country, culture, family, and individual experience; however, the effects of caregiving on family relationships, income, health, and other aspects have many similarities. Caregivers throughout the world provide significant but often unrecognized contributions to the lives of family members for whom they care. Patil and Wilson discuss the importance of making caregiving an issue that we talk about to give a voice to the millions of family caregivers worldwide who deserve recognition and support.

Wilson works with family caregivers, groups, 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.
