Description

We love our parents! But do you ever worry about yours as they grow older? Or even your own future aging circumstances? Providing support to a loved one can seem overwhelming and you’re not alone if you find yourself in this role currently.
According to Pew Research’s 2015 data, there are 40.4 million unpaid caregivers of adults ages 65 and older in the United States. Of that group, nine-in-ten are providing care for an aging relative, and a plurality is caring for a parent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
What if there was an ebb and flow to caregiving and time spent supporting and nurturing loved ones was redirected to its fullest potential while still allowing time for ourselves? What if caring for aging parents was an art?
In this episode of Aging GreatFULLy we welcome author and physical therapist, Teresa Moerer, who faced similar challenges when caring for her parents and patients. She also knows the joys of success as she assists people to achieve their optimal potential. In fact, she a created a unique four-step method, Experi-Age, and wrote a book, Aging Parents: Discover the Journey to Honor Your Parents, Create Treasured Memories, And Live Life to The Fullest. Teresa highlights what she calls an Art of Assisting Aging Parents. Teresa gently guides readers (and patients) through how to turn daily activities and healthy living strategies into meaningful and affective experiences.
Her Four-Step Method teaches people how to help you or your parents increase motor and thinking skills, instill healthy habits to promote wellness, make smooth transitions and set quality goals, reach their highest state of health and well-being. Through Teresa’s course, BOSS Caregiver Blueprint, she teaches people how to have a vibrant life while also assisting aging parents.
We all aspire to live and age well through well-celebrated and successful life experiences. In this episode we uncover so much about that plays into the premise improving our lives, such as how even those rare relationship encounters matter, why our brain likes surprises, aging in place, the importance of a life vision, why you need to hone your strengths, being an active listener, and even the art of living itself and so much more!
A must listen power-hour of enlightYOUment for anyone that has parents or is one… because if you’re aging – this show is for you. We packed a lot into this hour, and listeners will enjoy every minute of it!
