The Caring Generation® Protecting Elderly Parents from Siblings

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® podcast show for caregivers and aging adults. This coming Wednesday, March 24, 2021, the topic is Protecting Elderly Parents From Siblings.

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.

Protecting Elderly Parents From Siblings

Family disputes over elderly parents are more common when multiple children are interested and involved in caregiving. Adult children may be wondering how to protect the money of elderly parent's from a financially dependent brother or sister. Relationship tensions may escalate if an adult child living with parents becomes overbearing or controlling.

Resident children can isolate parents by limiting phone calls and visits from children not living in the home. These are potentially abusive situations that can end up in court when one child exercises undue influence over a vulnerable parent by excluding contact with children or other family members. 

Protecting elderly parents from siblings may be viewed as a positive action that can backfire when an adult child finds herself or himself exhausted and burned out from never-ending care responsibilities. Are there situations where elderly parents expect too much? Can the expectations of elderly parents result in unhealthy relationships or unintentional abuse or neglect by an overwhelmed caregiver-child? Wilson discusses these topics and more on this week's The Caring Generation.

Medicaid Denials Due to Financial Concerns

When elderly parents enable adult children to become financially dependent for income or living arrangements, these relationships can result in financial concerns related to being approved for Medicaid. Wilson discusses the Medicaid benefit and how loans never paid back by children or and monetary gifts made by parents can result in the decline of Medicaid applications.

For older adults who have health concerns and lack substantial financial resources, planning to access Medicaid benefits is an essential component of retirement and long-term care planning. Learning about the difference between Medicare and Medicaid can benefit caregivers of aging parents who are concerned about their ability to provide care. Medicaid—which goes by a different name depending on the state—is a public benefit that provides care for the elderly at home, in some care homes, and nursing homes. 

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.
