Ask the Experts: Guidance

Seniors and their adult children often find themselves in unchartered territory. Guidance from experts at Your Elder Experts and numerous support groups throughout Greater Boston can alleviate the stress of the unknown and empower people to make more informed decisions.

I have been caring for my 90-year-old mother for the past two years while running my own home and managing a highly-stressful job. Often I feel overwhelmed and exhausted. Any advice for me in balancing it all?

It is important to focus on your own health and desires when you are the caregiver of an aging parent. You can reduce personal stress by recognizing warning signs early, acknowledging your feelings, identifying sources of stress, recognizing what can and cannot be changed, and by taking action. Asking for help along the way is as much for you as it is for your mother.
