#001 When you become the Adult… Caring for your Elderly Parent(s)

This week’s podcast is a tribute to mothers with Gloria Lyons on navigating the season of caring for your parent.

.

In this weeks podcast we are speaking with guest, Gloria Lyons about the process, emotions, responsibilities, and lessons learned in caring for an elderly parent. If you have not entered this phase of life you will, if the Lord delays His coming for your parents.

Gloria is a wife, homemaker, and mother of one beautiful teenage daughter. I have had the opportunity to observe her go through the season of caring for a parent with grace.

I hope that you will be blessed by the session today. Please leave a comment if you were blessed by the information discussed. I hope you will feel supported and understood in some small way by this podcast.

Highlights

Take care of yourself
Don’t sweat the lack of support from siblings
Thank God for the gift of time you have with your parent
Guard against unforgiveness, bitterness, and guilt
Realize that you are not a robot
Embrace the fact that sometimes your parent requires more skilled full time supervision and care than you are capable of providing
