Pamela’s Power of Attorney Secrets for Success: A Program to Manage Caregiving, Reduce Worry, Feelings of Burden, and Gain Control of Decision-Making

Pamela’s Caregiving and Power of Attorney Secrets program will reduce worry about being a burden to family members. Aging adults want to remain independent and in control of their lives. Caregivers may feel exhausted and hopeless about care situations.

Caregiving is a Family Matter

Caregiving is a family matter but is a subject that is rarely discussed before an unexpected emergency happens. In Pamela’s program, Caregiving and Power of Attorney Secrets she works with caregivers and aging adults to end worry, reduce doubt, and gain confidence about caregiving matters. The program also focuses on the importance of choosing the right power of attorney to help advocate for care in a healthcare system that may deny care and treatment to aging adults. Many adult children are looking for solutions to survive caregiving for aging parents. 

Every Situation is Different

Because every situation is different, live online sessions with Pamela to get your questions answered are included with the program. If you want to work with someone who understands what you’re going through, this program is for you. Pamela’s 20+ years of experience helps caregivers and aging adults avoid many of the pitfalls, mistakes, and unknowns of caregiving and navigating the healthcare system. 

Remaining Independent Can Be Difficult If You Don’t Want to Burden Family

Remaining independent can be difficult if you don’t have or want your family to help. By working with Pamela — who knows what happens in caregiving situations and understands what aging adults and caregivers go through — caregiving and family situations become less stressful. Caregiving is a life role that arises unexpectedly and throws unprepared families into chaos. 

11 Reasons Pamela’s Caregiving and Power of Attorney Secrets Will End Worry and Help You Gain Confidence

Talking about caregiving and power of attorney are “after-thoughts” after health issues have happened. By this time loss of independence and more help may be a necessity instead of a choice. When life changes and you need care or become a caregiver you want to be confident that you are making the right decisions and the right choices. Here are 11 reasons Pamela’s Caregiving and Power of Attorney Secrets will change your life. 

1 The Unexpected Happens - Read More

Responding to health emergencies in crises results in family stress, worry, and anxiety. This program helps caregivers and aging adults have a caregiving plan and a backup plan to address the unexpected. There are also things to know to plan for and make end of life care decisions. 

2 Reduce Worry About Being a Burden to Loved Ones - Read More

By having conversations about caregiving and power of attorney before emergencies happen, the worry about “who will care for me” is resolved. Aging parents wonder if their adult children will care for them. No one wants to be a burden. Saying that you don’t want to be a burden and not being a burden are two different things. Not being a burden does not happen without action and planning. By talking and planning about the desire to remain independent and in control, concerns about being a burden are lessened.

3 Spouses and Adult Children Are Relieved That a Plan Exists, But What if You Are a Solo Ager? - Read More

Adult children worry about when it’s time to get power of attorney for aging parents. This is especially true if there is a lack of understanding about the responsibilities of a power of attorney. Most people hear the words, power of attorney, but don’t really know what power of attorney means. While power of attorney is a document — a piece of paper that can be downloaded from the Internet or provided by an attorney — knowing the responsibilities of the person appointed is significant in managing care for a loved one.  

If you are a solo ager, meaning an adult who is divorced, widowed, never married, a married couple without children, or a person who does not have or trust family to be your caregiver at the time of need, this course is even more important and time-sensitive for you. Finding a professional who will help you remain independent, in control and to manage your health when needed is a necessity, not an option.

Pamela works with caregivers and aging adults to restore balance and reduce stress. Caregiving quickly becomes overwhelming and burnout is experienced. 

5 Creating a Medical Care Action Plan Puts You In Control of Future Care Needs - Read More

The quality of our health indicates the quality of our life as we age. The healthcare system “treats” but fails to talk about the bigger picture of preventative measures to support positive aging. One example of this is the prevalence of high blood pressure and relating high blood pressure to circulatory issues in the body. Over the long-term high blood pressure and circulatory issues can result in a diagnosis of dementia. 

Creating a medical action plan with Pamela helps caregivers and aging adults become more aware of potential issues and present-day actions that can be taken to support independence. Difficulties with activities of daily living are often an early warning sign that action must be taken to remain at home instead of moving to a nursing home or care facility. 

6 Having a Person Act as Your Power of Attorney Gives You Power With the Healthcare System - Read More

Advocating, or standing up for our own care needs, can be challenging especially if we are not well-versed in working with the healthcare system. By going through the process of appointing a person to be your power of attorney you have more power and leverage to work with healthcare providers. In the program, Pamela’s Caregiving and Power of Attorney Secrets, she shares her experiences as medical power of attorney to help you get the care you need. The healthcare system is biased against providing care for older adults especially those with certain diagnoses. You’ll gain confidence in your ability to get the care you want for yourself or a love done. 

7 Become More Aware of Costs of Care Giving You Choice About How and Where You Will Receive Care When Needed - Read More

Pamela will work with you to understand what Medicare pays and doesn’t pay for so that you’re not surprised when a hospitalization or health emergency occurs. Detailed information about the costs of in-home caregivers, care communities, and nursing homes will be discussed in the program.

By becoming more informed you will be calm when crises occur and aging adults and caregivers can more easily manage care.

Pamela works with you so that you are more informed about how the decisions you make in these documents will affect your care and family relationships. Medical errors happen that are not addressed in many power of attorney, living will, or M.O.S.T. forms.

Pamela will help you avoid family disagreements and plan for potential healthcare issues so that you avoid unexpected situations and unnecessary stress.

11 The Risks of Delaying Talking about Power of Attorney - Read More

Appointing a power of attorney is a subject that many individuals and families postpone or are unaware of because needing or appointing a power of attorney seems like something that “isn’t for me.” Confusion exists over what power of attorney means. A power of attorney document is a piece of paper giving power to another person to help you.

You Can Download A Power of Attorney Off the Internet … But What Then?

The “implementation and use” of the document is the most important aspect. Sure you can download a power of attorney from the Internet, but what then? Do you fully understand the responsibilities and the ramifications of appointing a person to help you? Many individuals do not have a good understanding of power of attorney and what it is or what it means.

A lack of understanding is why creating power of attorney documents or choosing a power of attorney is delayed. A lack of understanding about power of attorney is also why power of attorney abuse happens. Older adults are taken advantage of both medically and financially by persons they thought were honest — including family members. 

When a Medical Emergency Happens It’s Best to Have a Person Acting As Your Power of Attorney

When a medical emergency happens, help is needed. Having a power of attorney you trust is invaluable in protecting your wishes, choices, and desires about the care you want. Not having this document subjects you to having the healthcare system and others make decisions for you.

Becoming involved with the legal system is another hesitation. Power of attorney documents can be downloaded from the Internet or provided by an attorney. Having this piece of paper is important.
