    Care Break: If There's So Many of Us, Why Is Caregiving So Lonely?

    in Caregiving

    Pew Research Center released a study in 2013 that says about 39% of U. S. adults–up from 30% in 2010–care for an adult or child with significant health issues.


    In other words, two in every five individuals are family caregivers.


    I’ve been thinking about this number because I can’t quite get it to add up.


    Here’s why. If 39% of U.S. adults are family caregivers, why is caregiving still such a lonely and isolating experience? Why, every year in our annual family caregiver survey, do you talk about the loneliness of the experience? Why haven’t more programs and services been added in your community to help you? Why do you still worry about telling your boss about your caregiving responsibilities? Why doesn’t the doctor’s office share a list of caregiving resources to help you? Why doesn’t a home health agency refer you to a website, like ours, so you can connect with others in a similar situation? Why can’t you find a family restroom to assist your caree?


    Why is caregiving still an experience that feels like it’s just you rather than one that feels like it’s you plus (and within) a community that supports?


    Bruce and I will share our thoughts about why we think caregiving is still such a lonely experience.

Listen to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston RGN is joined by Pamela Gawler-Wright a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, Neuro-Linguistic Psychotherapist, Master and Certified Trainer in NLP, to discuss how NLP can address and resolve problems caused through trauma, resulting in anxiety, depression and addiction

    Table Talk: Taking Care of Your Marriage and Your Caree

    in Caregiving

    When it's you, your spouse and your caree, you can feel like you often choose your caree over your marriage. How do you cope with the stresses and rigors of caregiving and take care of your marriage? Linda Goin, who cares for her dad and cared for her mom, shares what she learned about taking care of her marriage during caregiving.


    Linda Goin is a 60-year-old writer and entrepreneur. She's now writing a memoir about her experiences about caregiving her mother, who died from bile duct cancer in June 2014. Linda spent the better part of 2013 and 2014 caregiving her mother in her parents' home, and she's now a long-distance caregiver to her Dad. Although the distance between her home and her parents' home is only eight hours, that distance is just enough to make things complicated. The length of time Linda spent with her parents away from her home took a toll on her marriage; but, she and her husband are learning how to work things out through "co-caregiving" this time around.
