    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.

    Finding Your Path to Personal Fulfillment

    in Self Help

    May 21, 2015 - LIVING A RICHER LIFE ~ Life Changing Talk Radio


    THEME: Finding Your Path to Personal Fulfillment


    INTERVIEW GUEST: Sue Batton Leonard


    Sue Leonard is an Author, Writer and Blogger. She is the Founder and President of Cornerstone Fulfillment Service, LLC --- a company specializing in e-commerce and e-marketing for independent publishers since 1998. She is the author of the 3-time award winning memoir, titled, Gift of a Lifetime: Finding Fulfilling Things in the Unexpected.


    THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: 


    As most of us have learned, we cannot find happiness by making it our goal. Happiness is the unintended benefit of pursuing personal dreams and living true to yourself. When you proactively connect the person you are with the things that you choose to do, a deep sense of fulfillment will emerge. Fulfillment is a form of happiness, or satisfaction, that is the direct result of fully developing your abilities or character. Personal fulfilment is best defined as the achievement of life goals which are important to you, in contrast to the goals of society or even your family. Personal fulfilment is an ongoing journey for most of us. They journey commences when we start becoming conscious of ourselves, our surroundings and our past. But, for many of us, finding the right path to this level of consciousness and fulfilment is a challenge. Sometimes finding a path to fulfillment can be buried in the unexpected. How can you find your path to personal fulfillment?
