Description

When do we need to begin to consider end of life care for our loved ones?  For many of us we are long overdue.  Do we truly realize the importance of planning ahead as far as being a caregiver and one who needs care?These difficult thoughts questions and concerns must occur in order to have a smooth transition from what was to what is to come.  Liz Craven of Sage Aging, shares with me the importance of making so many of these decisions and having these conversations long before many of us realize.  As early as 18 years old! In addition, so many women are the ones who become responsible to the care of their elderly loved ones and the immense strain this puts on them mentally, physically and emotionally is often ignored and misunderstood.  Because of this the statistics for severe depression and substance abuse, due to this strain, among caregivers is enormous.  The absolute necessity for caregivers to receive the ability to self care, needs to be a priority.  AARP article regarding caregivers:https://www.aarp.org/content/dam/aarp/ppi/2020/05/full-report-caregiving-in-the-united-states.doi.10.26419-2Fppi.00103.001.pdfSage Aging Podcast and Website:https://polkeldercare.com/sage-aging-and-blog/Sage Aging on Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/sageaging/ That's Not Proper can be found on all podcast platforms and my website!! https://www.thatsnotproper.comLooking to be a guest or have a great topic you'd love to hear me cover? Click the link below and fill out the form or forward it to someone you know who would be an amazing guest!https://www.thatsnotproper.com/be-on-the-podcast I’d love to connect with you here and on Instagram and Facebook!That's Not Proper Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/thatsnotproper/That's Not Proper Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/thatsnotproper
