The Caring Generation® Radio Caregiving Ruined My Life

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® family talk radio program for caregivers and aging adults this coming Wednesday, September 9, 2020, 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.

Caregiving Ruined My Life

Hearing the words "caregiving ruined my life" can bring up negative thoughts about the person who made this statement. Individuals in the early stages of caregiving may not be drowning in responsibilities with no one to help—yet. You may be a caregiver hearing these words and nodding your head.

The time frame of caregiving—several years to more than 20 years—and the swell in responsibilities can have caregivers feeling like they're sinking in quicksand. On this radio program for caregivers, Pamela D Wilson offers a peek into the other side of caregiving.

Stressed caregivers feel judged and uncomfortable about sharing feelings—fear of being judged or hurting another person's feelings hinders communication. Wilson believes humor in caregiving is essential. Caregivers don't expect to change Depends, bathe elderly parents, collect urine samples, or complete a long list of unexpected tasks.

Wilson's Facebook Group, The Caregiving Trap, encourages caregivers to share stories and ask questions. Being a caregiver is a demanding life role that few caregivers see as voluntary. Retired senior adult children care for senior parents. Millennials care for Baby Boomer parents while holding down jobs and raising children. The age range for caregivers begins as early as age 20 and extends well into the later years of life. 

How to Take Back Your Life

Rather than thoughts of "being a caregiver is killing me," caregivers who access support and education can create a balance between caregiving responsibilities and personal lives. On this program, Wilson shares solutions to help caregivers take back their lives and speak honestly about feelings that not everyone understands.  Show topics include managing work-life balance, talking about caregiver stress, and learning to ask for help from people who offer to show up—but never do.

Guest Interview With Bill Gardner: Tips for Navigating Through Emotional and Negative Life Situations

Wilson's guest for this radio program is Bill Gardner of Noetic Outcomes, a leader with more than forty years of experience in leadership cognition, organizational development, and creatively addressing problems and issues. He is a Forbes contributor and a Certified Coach with the Center for Creative Leadership.

Gardner has worked with private, public, agency, and not-for-profit organizations as a consultant. He was recognized by the University of Southern Mississippi with an Excellence in Teaching Award and serves on the St. Edward's University Doctoral Advisory board in Austin, Texas, where he resides.  He has contributed to academic books on the subjects of learning and organizational development and the art and science of change.

Gardner will share tips for caregivers navigating through emotional and negative life situations—how to understand where negative emotions come from, and the best way to deal with them. Show listeners will gain insights into balancing their needs while caring for loved ones.
