One day most of us will have to face many hard issues regarding the care of our aging parents. For some, that day comes gradually. For others, it comes without a moment’s notice. In either case the big question is, “Are you ready?”
|Stuck in the Middle: Caring for Mom and Dad is the newest public television pledge special produced by Mills James. Hosted by national speaker, author and eldercare expert Barbara McVicker, the program recognizes that today there are more than 75 million people who are “stuck in the middle” of kids, career and attending to the needs of their elderly parents. Through humor, tears and inspiring care giving stories, Barbara gives hope to viewers by providing them a lifeline and assuring them they are not alone. Most importantly, she provides essential information and tools needed to navigate adult care giving and move from crisis to planning.|
As an eldercare expert, McVicker works with healthcare professionals, caregivers, financial institutions, human resource work-life balance departments, and attorneys. She has authored several books on the subject — including “Stuck in the Middle: Shared Stories and Tips on Caring for Mom and Dad,” the award-winning book for the Boomer Generation — and has presented keynotes and webinars for many of the top Fortune 500 Companies. As a caregiver to her parents for more than 10 years while raising two children and struggling to maintain her career as a high-level development director, McVicker offers emotional support and essential information to adult caregivers who are struggling to keep balance in their family and work life.
