Caring For Your Parents posted on: 01-07-2009

senior caregiving I recently watched the outstanding PBS show Caring For Your Parents. What a moving, remarkable program. It’s 2 hours long, you can watch it by clicking here: Caring or, I’m happy to loan your my copy of the DVD. “Caring for Your Parents” covers the struggle to keep parents at home and the tension so common among their adult children. The documentary illustrates how caregiving impacts marriages, and the emotional, financial, and physical effects of caregiving. Also, many common issues with the elderly: the decision to stop driving, loss of independence, and dynamic between caregivers and medical professionals. PBS really did a great job with this, it illustrates the common problems facing so many families and is definately worth watching.
