The Caring Generation® Radio Program What Does Being A Caregiver Mean?

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® radio program for caregivers and aging adults this coming Wednesday, June 10, 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 radio program for caregivers and aging adults, Wilson shares the many definitions, roles, and responsibilities of being a caregiver. The idea of feeling more like a caregiver instead of a husband, wife, son, or daughter is discussed.

As caregiving duties grow, care tasks absorb time, and less opportunity exists for the caregiver and care receiver to be in the moment. Wilson talks about hiring, paying for, and talking to elderly parents about having non-medical in-home caregivers in the home to provide support for the primary caregiver who may be managing a variety of chronic health concerns

Incontinence is a Common Elder Care Experience

Elderly adults commonly experience incontinence as a care concern. People think that incontinence is something that happens with age—this is not always true. Because of this belief, it may take a long time for the elderly to see a doctor. Other seniors feel embarrassed and may never see a doctor. There are serious health risks associated with being incontinent. These risks include an increase in falls, skin problems including wounds, hospitalizations, nursing home admissions, and higher costs of care.

Wilson's guest for this program is Dr. Martha Spencer, a Geriatrician and Clinical Instructor from the University of British Columbia who talks about Managing Incontinence in Older Adults. She will share how countries like Canada and Great Britain manage incontinence care by having nurse continence specialists as part of health care programs for the elderly.

Making Caregiver Education A Reality

Caregivers have long to-do-lists. Many experience burnout and exhaustion that increase the difficulty of taking an active interest in learning more about how to care for elderly loved ones.

Caregiver education and engagement are the paths forward to improving care for the elderly and increasing awareness of the issues that caregivers experience. Rather than being the silent majority, caregivers must begin to speak up if support at broad levels from the workplace and other avenues is to occur.

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 her online course, Taking Care of Elderly Parents: Stay At Home, provided through corporations for working caregivers is available on her website.
