The Caring Generation® Mission

The Caring Generation originated in 2009 by Pamela D. Wilson. Pamela continues to develop and produce a weekly radio program and podcast for caregivers called The Caring Generation. The original show aired from 2009 to 2011 and began again in 2018 and continues today. 

The Caring Generation® mission was developed through conversations with show listeners, caregivers, and aging adults that Wilson met through the program and offering services through her company. The Caring Generation represents Pamela’s mission of reaching one million caregivers worldwide to provide help, support, and online education.

During the hiatus of The Caring Generation Radio program, Pamela wrote her book, The Caregiving Trap: Solutions for Life’s Unexpected Changes. Her 20+ year caregiving career includes advocating and managing care for aging adults and working with caregiving families.

Caregiver Support is a Universal Need

Caregivers and aging adults search for hope, help, and support because of the stress and unexpected situations involved in caregiving and needing care. The Caring Generation® mission brings together like-minded caregivers. Pamela seeks to broaden awareness of the importance of caregiving as a family responsibility.

While healthcare systems may be different—the emotions, family interactions, and struggles to find support are universal. Between caregivers, caregiving is a universal language of love and responsibility.

One-Of-A-Kind Weekly Caregiver Podcasts Programs Provide Care Solutions

Wilson’s one-of-a-kind weekly caregiver radio programs and podcasts offer tips, advice, and solutions for all families. We will all eventually be faced with caregiving as a role and a responsibility. Pamela’s experience of more than 20 years in the industry as a caregiving expert, advocate, and speaker, supports The Caring Generation® mission of offering practical and proven caregiver support programs.

Caregiving Should Be Something We Talk About

Let’s be honest, talking about caregiving with loved ones may feel difficult. Aging parents hesitate to talk to adult children about needing care. And they don’t want to be a burden. Caregiving can feel like an impossible struggle. Caregivers may be torn between taking care of loved ones and trying to maintain balance in life.

Being a caregiver is hard work. Hesitation exists about openly sharing one’s true feelings about being a caregiver. Frustration, guilt, and judgment are very common in caregiving situations. For 24/7 caregivers, feelings of isolation and loneliness prevail. Family members and friends disappear. The caregiver is left alone with the work and responsibility of caring for a loved one.

The Caring Generation® mission of providing caregiver podcasts support honest conversations between adult children caring for aging parents and spousal caregivers. There are no silly questions, no guilt, no judgment – only solutions. Wilson discusses topics that caregivers think about but may be afraid to discuss openly.

If you’re not prepared, you already know that caregiving can be a struggle. The good news is that caregiving can be easier.

Caregiving Is The Unexpected – Avoid Surprises by Being Prepared

Someday we will all face the inevitable dilemma of being a caregiver. The options that we have to keep aging parents, spouses, and loved ones at home or place them in a care home can feel overwhelming and daunting. The experience leads to caregivers feeling stressed and reacting to unexpected tragedies. Pamela’s caregiving library, online courses, and support offer solutions for caregivers.


Caregiving: An Unexpected Role

Caregiving is an unexpected role in life. Daily life and family structure continue to change; this will affect those who will become the caregivers of tomorrow. The idea of a traditional family has transformed into single-parent families, families blended from prior marriages, same-sex families and individuals who choose never to partner or marry. Add to this, individuals called solo agers or elder orphans who chose to remain single or who now live alone due to separation or death of a partner or spouse.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the percentage of older adults over age 65 is projected to double between 2010 and 2050 from 40.2 to 88.5 million. How will we as a society respond to an aging population and the challenges this presents?

This changing landscape has changed not only the way we communicate but the way we must plan today for our own care as we age. Nations worldwide are facing issues of aging populations and the reality of care for the aging. Through membership in The Caring Generation and Pamela’s online courses and programs, we can transform caregiving.
