Are you the primary caregiver for your parents? Do you feel sandwiched between raising children and being treated like a child by the parent that refuses your care? Becoming an adult caretaker can be an overwhelming responsibility. This week I sit down with Mr. Isaac Asare, whom served as patient caretaker for his aging mom. He shares with us the emotional contradictions both he and his mother felt during the transition.
The process of reversing roles with your parents is a complicated one. But you don’t have to do it by yourself. You can contact: AgingCare.com, Caregiver.org and of course, the AARP.org. You may even be able to get paid for caring for an aging parent.
Enjoy the interview!
