The Caring Generation® Lessons From Isolated Seniors

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® family talk radio program for caregivers and aging adults this coming Wednesday, July 22, on the Bold Brave Media Network. The program airs live at 9 p.m. EST. The Caring Generation® aired initially from 2009 to 2011 on 630 KHOW-AM in Denver, Colorado.

What Isolated and Lonely Caregivers Can Learn From Isolated Seniors

On this talk radio program for caregivers and aging adults, Wilson talks about aspects of loneliness and social isolation experienced by caregivers and seniors. Seniors and caregivers experience differing degrees of isolation and loneliness that depend on unexpected situations, lifelong behaviors and patterns, and residence factors.  

While the coronavirus has increased social isolation by the need for physical separation, loneliness has also increased. Human beings crave social connections. As we age, fewer opportunities to make new social relationships exist. Socially connected individuals fare better from a health perspective and have better long term quality of life.

What caregivers can learn from isolated seniors is that isolation does not equate to loneliness. Other learnings Wilson shares during this radio program for caregivers include the idea of investing in long term friendships that can transcend time and significant life transitions.

Meaningful friendships, maintaining connections, and making new connections is part of having a fulfilling life that allows us to become resilient to transcend unexpected ups and downs in life and situations related to caregiving. Helpful tips and information for caregivers and aging adults are in Wilson's Caring for Aging Parents Blog

.Difficult Caregiving Conversations with Dr. Liz Barnett

The guest for this program is Dr. Elizabeth (Liz) Barnett, who will share examples of how to have difficult caregiving conversations about the idea of caregiving burden. Caregivers experience burden when emotional, social, financial, career, and relationship aspects of life become challenging or feel overwhelming.

Dr. Barnett received her Master's of Social Work from Boston University and her Ph.D. from the University of Southern California's Department of Preventive Medicine's Institute for Prevention Research. She is an adjunct professor at California State University at Long Beach in Human Development. Her expertise is in motivational interviewing on the subjects of substance abuse, health, and social work. She has developed specialized training videos and motivational interviewing practice modules for professionals.

Join Pamela on The Caring Generation to learn what seniors and caregivers can learn from each other on the subjects of social isolation and loneliness.  The Caring Generation® radio program airs live at 6 p.m. Pacific, 7 p.m. Mountain, 8 p.m. Central, and 9 p.m. Eastern every Wednesday night.
