A Caregiver's Roadmap for Aging Parents with Judy Burkle, MSW and Aging Parent Coach
How do we become prepared as a caregiver and not wait until everything is falling down around us? Judy Burkle is the perfect person to talk with us today about how we juggle all of the caregiving responsibilities and manage our emotions. Judy is a master-level social worker and an aging parent coach with extensive experience working with older adults and one on one therapy sessions. Every caregiver's situation and story is unique. We talk about how being informed can help you feel like you’ve got a sense of control over what feels unpredictable. We’re often living in a state of the unknown or not quite sure what that journey looks like for a loved one. We want to make sure that we’re doing the right decisions and asking the right questions. Judy provides a great framework to easily look at your situation and know where to begin in providing great care for your loved one.
Judy became passionate about "working with adults and aging parents after spending a career seeing how difficult it is for adult children to manage their care as their parent's health declines." Judy wants to impart to adult children the skills to feel confident as they care for their aging parents.
Judy Burkle shares about:
We talk about the very real emotions and situations that many caregivers face- feelings of helplessness and stress. How does this affect us?
How do we take all that’s happening, the chaos and unknown we might feel - and come up with a plan- where do we start?
Caregiver burnout and how to create a checklist to feel prepared and supported
Why it's important to look at what our needs are as caregivers
How to shift our mindset from feeling overwhelmed to empowered
The many ways that adults of aging parents can feel supported and what services are available.
