Caring for an Aging Parent
You’ve taken on the role as caregiver for one or both of your parents. You are at a time in your life when your children are grown and you thought you would be free. Now, you have a whole new set of responsibilities. Caring for an aging parent can be stressful.
It’s easy to worry about your parents getting older and it’s hard to see them change. Maybe you worry about them getting weaker or falling down. You stress over them staying safe or getting hurt. You start to see a decline and fear that eventually they may lose their mental capacities or their memory. And worst of all, it’s hard to think about them being gone forever. See if any of this resonates with you:
- Is it frightening to have a parent depend on you?
- Are you feeling tired and drained all the time?
- Is it hard to watch the person you knew become a stanger?
- Does the constant stress get the best of you?
- Are you resentful towards other siblings who refuse to take responsibly to help?
- Do you feel angry that this is not what you wanted to be doing at this time in your life?
“I constantly deal with the stress of caring for an elderly parent that lives with me. It is not easy working and living with Mother. I found the tapping to be beneficial and insightful. I now have a new tool I can use when the stress becomes overwhelming. I love life and learning new ways to better and enhance my life and those around me. I am so glad I tried the EFT with Juanita.”
