Providing care for an elderly family member can be an overwhelming responsibility. Children of elderly parents are often suddenly thrust into the role of caregiver. When an elderly parent is hospitalized, diagnosed with a chronic illness, or can no longer care for themselves, it is usually the children of the elderly parent who have to step in and take care of their parent. These caretakers must now deal with issues such as finding senior housing, providing daily care, dealing with communication problems and balancing work and family.
There are support groups for family caregivers that provide a forum for sharing information and experiences, while offering emotional support. CAI recognizes the importance of this type of support and information exchange and has created a myCAI community group as a way of serving the growing and specific needs of its members. It is our hope that participating members will both find and contribute useful information on this board and feel connected to others as they share in similar experiences relating to care for an elderly family member.
Please join us for an introduction webinar on the Caring for Aging Parents Group on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 9 a.m. On this call we will introduce the purpose of this group, the goals, and discuss some of the outcomes we hope to see from this group. We know that providing care for an elderly family member can be time consuming and adds another level of complexity to an already complex life. Know that you are not alone in this. There are likely many of our current members experiencing the same frustrations and challenges.
This myCAI group will provide an opportunity for members to share their specific experiences, seek advice from others and read about similar experiences. In addition, there are links to vendors for elderly care and counseling along with useful resources. As this group grows, additional resources resulting from your involvement will be shared.
