The Caring Generation® Radio Show What Is Caregiver Fatigue?

Golden CO- Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson hosts The Caring Generation® family talk radio program for caregivers and aging adults this coming Wednesday, June 28, 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 talk radio program for caregivers and aging adults, Wilson answers the caregiving question what is caregiver fatigue and offers tips for how to manage being an exhausted caregiver. Wanting life to be as it was before caregiving and continuing to try to do it all is part of the reason for caregiver fatigue. Caregivers can fall into the trap of grieving a more carefree life and feel resentful about caregiving responsibilities.

Caregivers ask—why does life have to change? Why do things always happen to me? Why is life such a struggle? Everyone—caregiver or not—asks these questions now and then. New approaches to managing the unexpected and increasing flexibility can reduce feelings of caregiver fatigue.

This includes when families consider the idea of moving loved ones into assisted living, memory care, or nursing care. Wilson talks about this idea from the perspective of young adult caregivers and spousal caregivers.

The Emotional Aspects of Placing Loved Ones in Care Communities

When we look at the idea of moving a loved one, the perspectives of adult children and spouses are very different because of being in two different stages of life. Being a caregiver interrupts normal patterns of life. The idea of life interrupted for millennial caregivers results in feeling like doing the best in areas of life—work, being a husband or a wife, raising children, or being a caregiver—is impossible to manage.

Elderly spouses have lived their lives—raised children, had careers, and are looking forward to retirement—a retirement that may be robbed by the poor health of a spouse. Spouses think that emotional stress will lessen by moving a husband or a wife to a care community.

Adult children and spouses find that stress may not decrease because of a loss of control over the actual care situation. Worry about whether care staff in communities will do their job is a concern.

Caregivers—young and old—may find that the problem they thought would be solved by placing loved ones in care communities turns into different issues. A desire for free time may result in guilty feelings about not visiting a spouse or elderly parent. A loved one may experience more health concerns necessitating a higher degree of oversight. Caregiving decisions pose many complications. 

Join Pamela on The Caring Generation to learn the answers to managing caregiver fatigue and other questions about caring for elderly loved ones. 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 onsite and online video conferencing, keynote speaking events, and online education and support are available on Wilson's website.
