GOLDEN, Colo., May 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Aging and health care expert, Pamela D. Wilson of The Care Navigator announces Parenting Your Parents, a talk radio program on 630 KHOW Denver. The program focuses on the conversation of caring and gives permission for adult children to talk about aging and caregiving with their parents. This is a subject often not discussed until families are in crises and have no idea how to navigate not only health care but issues of daily living for their parents. The program airs weekly on Sunday from 10-11am MST.
The Parenting Your Parents website features weekly checklists, free downloads, the ability to email questions, access blog and Twitter postings, review sponsor information, a library complete with archived programs and the ability for listeners to give their opinions on a weekly feature called Too Hot To Handle, discussing timely and controversial issues about health care and aging. The Parenting Your Parents concept allows adult children to have a resource for questions during the weekly radio broadcast and also a venue and a source of information during the week online at http://www.parentingyourparentsradio.com. This program also serves as an invitation for children to invite their parents to listen, easing the way to opening a conversation about caregiving.
During the past ten years, Pamela D. Wilson, The Care Navigator, has helped adult children and older adults navigate issues of caregiving, health care and aging to arrive at positive solutions. This work supports a significant shift in the parent-child relationship that is emotionally upsetting for the child and the parent because of feelings of loss experienced when parents begin to fail physically and mentally. The reality is that adult children today find themselves caring not only for their children but also their parents. The issue of caregiving will have a long lasting impact on society.
Pamela D. Wilson, CSA, MS, BS/BA, provides education, service coordination, advocacy and long term care planning for individuals facing the challenges of caregiving through her company The Care Navigator. She may be reached at (303) 205-7877 or by email at email@example.com.
