The Caring Generation® How to Talk About Getting Old and Not Be Afraid

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® podcast show for caregivers and aging adults. This coming Wednesday, March 10, 2021, the topic is How to Talk About Getting Old and Not Be Afraid

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 Talk About Getting Old and Not Be Afraid

During this podcast, Wilson addresses the unpopular topic of aging and how hopes for retirement years don't always meet expectations. Public speaking and death are two top-ranking fears. While practice can help overcome the fear of public speaking—death isn't an experience that can be overcome through practice or repetition.

Consumers and family caregivers cite a lack of time or not wanting to receive bad news as a reason for not going to the doctor. A lack of self-care is a significant issue among caregivers who often experience health concerns in equal measure, if not more substantially than elderly parents, spouses, or others for whom they care.

Regular medical care is among many preventative actions that can minimize health concerns, pain, and suffering. Age increases the likelihood of being diagnosed with a health condition that can pose long-term consequences. During this program, Wilson talks about how treatments or interventions like pacemakers or dialysis begun at earlier ages can be viewed differently when one is 80 or 90.  

The Experiences of Family Caregivers

Wilson interviews a family caregiver, Barb, who shares the experience of caring for her elderly mother diagnosed with dementia.  In talking about caring for her mother, she shares stories of how her mother's changing health affected relationships with her siblings.

While Barb is a devoted caregiver for her mother, she acknowledges that when she needs care, there is no guarantee that her children, committed today, will be there to care for her.  Join Pamela D Wilson on Wednesday, March 10th, for this thought-provoking and honest discussion about the challenges of aging.

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. More about Wilson's online courses for elderly care: How to Get Guardianship of a Parent and Taking Care of Elderly Parents, caregiver support, webinars, and speaking engagements is on her website www.pameladwilson.com.
