LOSING YOUR MEMORY, NEEDING CARE, OR BEING A CAREGIVER ARE THREE OF THE MOST UNPREDICTABLE AND FEARED PHRASES OF LIFE
I’m Pamela D. Wilson, caregiving expert, advocate, and speaker. I help caregivers manage the emotional turmoil of caregiving situations by setting boundaries to protect emotional and physical health, by learning to navigate unknown and unexpected situations, and by building care partner relationships. I help care recipients take responsibility and accountability for their care needs. No caregiver or care receiver should depend on family to be the sole support through health crises or the changes that occur with aging. I work with caregivers and care receivers to accomplish these goals by learning to communicate effectively, by learning to advocate, by being open to considering new information, and by acknowledging and accepting the perspectives of others.
The Caregiving Trap: Solutions for Life’s Unexpected Changes®
Pamela’s book supports conversations of care that emphasize choice, planning and balance in family caregiving relationships.
Welcome to The Caring Generation®, a community of support for family and professional caregivers. Many caregivers feel alone in their journey; if you identify with any of the statements below, you’re in exactly the right place to find 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. 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. The healthcare system is broken; for many it’s just a job and no one cares. Neglect and ignorance result in death. Information is fragmented. I was too naïve to recognize the self-interest and unethical practices until it was too late. Most of us don’t know where to turn for help. What do you mean Medicare doesn’t pay? I didn’t know what I didn’t know; ignorance is dangerous.”
