With our aging population the number of caregivers is increasing. Maxine and I know; w have both been caregivers. Maxine cared for her dying husband; I cared for both of my husband's parents in my home for three years and then did the same for my mother. I still oversee my mother's care in an assisted living situation. That's why we completely understand the desperation and exhaustion that often accompanies the role of caregiver and are looking forward to this interview with author Peter Rosenberger who hosts a weekly radio program for caregivers. He has has also has "been there" and learned to offer the rest of us real help.
And hope. We sure need hope. I am especially eager to hear what he has to say about the stress-inducing topics of finances, planning and decision-making. If you are a caregiver, take a much-needed break and listen to this show.
Preparing for "back to school" isn't just limited to children in grade school. Many parents are dealing with the emotional roller coaster of their children leaving for college and no longer leaving at home every day.
Empty nest syndrome is a feeling of loneliness or depression that occurs among parents after children grow up and leave home. When a child leaves for college, the military, or just to live on his/her own, it's often difficult for a parent.
There are several stages of empty nest syndrome and not everyone is affected, but many are. Let's take look at the stages and see if you have any symptoms.
P.S. Dad can be affected too!
