“You are my guardian angel! I’m so glad I found you. You have given me the ability to keep on going and the ability to fight for my mom and not to mention I’m learning thru you that I’m not crazy and everything my mom is doing is normal for Dementia/Alzheimer’s and it’s also okay to need a break.” L.O

“You deserve to be heard across all the nation.” B.B
“Thank you, Pamela. I am so glad I found your page and links. I first saw your channel on Roku and thought at last someone who is actually saying exactly the things that I have been experiencing.

Caregivers Struggle to Balance Caregiving, Work, and Life
Pamela offers caregiver programs for the workplace. Working caregivers are challenged by the roles and responsibilities of caregiving. Juggling conflicting priorities of work and home, plus raising a family while caring for elderly family results in emotional stress and health concerns.
Workplace support has not kept pace with the 40.4 million U.S. caregivers who learn by trial and error and fear making mistakes in caring for loved ones. Working and being a caregiver collide and result in stress. As a resource for caregivers, Pamela educates about the importance of health, well-being, and planning for future care needs before the need arises.
Cultural differences exist for caregivers outside of the United States. Caregivers in undeveloped countries struggle to manage basic needs in addition to working and caring for aging parents. Adults working and living at a distance as expatriates may struggle to manage care for parents living in other countries. Regardless of the situation, navigating family relationships with aging parents can present unexpected challenges.
Welcome to The Caring Generation®
Caregiving can be a blessing or an exhausting experience. If you identify with any of the statements below, feeling that there are days when you’re “tired of being a caregiver” or a care receiver you’re in exactly the right place to find caregiver resources, support, and guidance.
“I feel guilty and angry. There are times when I don’t know what to do. I find it difficult to say no. Family members refuse to help. I am trapped caregiving for a parent for whom I have no emotional connection. I feel judged. No one understands. Being a caregiver is isolating and lonely.
My physical and emotional health is near breakdown. I have lost friends. I love my husband (or wife) but this is not the retirement I expected; I can’t be a caregiver anymore. I am burned out and going through the daily routine; I know I am making mistakes that could harm my loved one.
The healthcare system is broken; for many, it’s just a job and no one cares. Neglect and ignorance resulted in the death of a loved one and I’m afraid what will happen to me. I was too naïve and trusting. I’m a power of attorney and don’t know what I’m supposed to do.
Most of us don’t know where to turn for help. What do you mean Medicare doesn’t pay? My parents are stubborn and won’t listen. I don’t even know what questions to ask.”
