The Caring Generation® Living With Elderly Parents

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® radio program for caregivers and aging adults this coming Wednesday, March 18th, 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.

On this caregiver radio program, Pamela D. Wilson caregiving expert talks about the stress of caring for and living with elderly parents. Having an elderly parent living in the house of adult children can bring up comforting thoughts or create worries. Deciding against living with elderly parents can be difficult when emotions run high.

On the March 18 edition of The Caring Generation, Pamela D. Wilson shares a variety of considerations to think about before deciding to live with elderly parents or move elderly parents into the home of children. Guilt is the most significant barrier to telling elderly parents no or requesting that elderly parents move out.

Guest, Ruth Lippin, an attorney and licensed clinical social worker, joins the show to talk about anxiety and feelings of stress related to caregiving situations. Caregivers feel responsible for caring for elderly parents and need emotional support to work through feelings of anger and frustration.  

When elderly parents need help, adult children can feel they are "between a rock and a hard place." Some children feel responsible for solving the problems of an elderly parent—this sense of feeling responsible results in family caregivers placing themselves in unworkable and stressful situations.

Living with elderly parents affects everyone in the family: spouses and children. Has the family agreed that living with an elderly parent is a good idea?

Is the family willing to absorb time and financial expenses indefinitely for 1, 3, 5, or 10 years? What are the longer-term effects on careers, family income, and savings? Will saving for children to attend college or delaying home repairs be replaced by the financial costs to care for elderly parents?

When caregivers are already in a situation of living with elderly parents, what steps can adult children take to manage complicated relationships? What happens when elderly parents refuse to allow paid assistance into the home so that adult children have support. Do elderly parents have the right to demand that the only caregivers be family members?

Join Pamela on The Caring Generation to learn the answers to these and other questions about living with elderly parents. 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.  Replays of the weekly programs are available in podcast format with transcripts on Pamela's website and all major podcast sites. More information about Pamela and her support programs are available on her website.
