Being a caregiver today is rough. The stresses and strains of work and family life, coupled with a troubling economy and uncertainty for the future make life hard enough to deal with. Top that off with the added burdens, worries, and responsibilities we must take on when we become responsible for caring for our aging parents, and it can push even the strongest families to the breaking point.
There’s no need to make it any tougher by trying to go it alone.
But there’s great news. You don’t have to go it alone. And it doesn’t have to be a nightmare.
With the right guidance, advice and support caring for your aging parents can be one of the most meaningful and fulfilling experiences of your life. How do I know? I’ve seen it, first hand— tens of thousands of times.
The key to doing this right is in understanding that there is no “typical” situation.
Every Person is unique. Every family is unique. And every situation is unique. The trouble comes when the “system” takes a one-size-fits-all, cookie cutter approach to eldercare—and the unwitting public falls for it. Aging is not an illness that can be cured. Aging is a normal, natural stage of life.
Just know that you’re not alone. You may be feeling overwhelmed—thinking that there are no good solutions to your situation, but trust me… I’ve been doing what I do for the past 35 years and there’s nothing I haven’t seen before.
