These days, millions of baby boomers are caring for an aging parent, whether helping with grocery shopping and paying bills or being day-to-day primary caregivers.
They are providing companionship and emotional support as well as personal care, such as bathing and dressing. They are hiring and supervising direct care workers and communicating with health professionals.
All of this while they may be working a full-time job and managing their own families. They are stressed and have a difficult time juggling all of these responsibilities. Their own lives are now on the back burner. They don’t remember when they last spent time with their own friends. They put their health on hold until they have their own health scare. It is a difficult situation and only getting worse.
