Caregiver Support and Resources: Family Caregiver Videos
Caregiving expert Pamela D. Wilson, creates family caregiver videos to support her mission of making caregiver support and resources a subject talked about by families long before a need for care happens. A lack of discussion about caregiving and aging in society today results in shock when aging family members need care and when adult children become caregivers.
Pamela shares caregiver videos, caregiver support, and resources each day on her website and through social media. Her Facebook Page hosts over one-hundred videos that offer help for caregivers and hope that caregiving situations can improve. Caregiver videos from Pamela are also on her Roku TV channel called Caregiving TV.
Pamela’s courses, Stay at Home and Power of Attorney, share experiences from more than 20 years that help all involved in caregiving avoid pitfalls and common mistakes. She is a strong consumer advocate who believes that caregivers and aging adults must take control of caregiving issues and situations instead of allowing the healthcare system to make decisions that go against the wishes of caregiving families.
