    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.

    Career Maverick to Caregiver - When Caregiving Has Changed Your Life

    in Caregiving

    "How do I deal with the reality of leaving behind the life I had in order to become the primary caregiver to my parents?"


    Many professionals, child-free life or with kids, never factor in that caring for loved ones would play any significant role in their career path. Like many in our generation, we never fully considered the potential need to care for our aging parents. Now, with aging parents who have lived through health episodes that once would have killed them, or a parent who has lived beyond an age ever thought possible only, are left with questions and often experiencing: Resentment. Burnout. Hard time staying connected. Stressful relationship. Job responsibilities redistributed. Juggling parents' needs with your company's and family. No energy to reinvent  yourself as a former career maverick. It is clear. You need to move on.
