Parenting your parent isn’t unique to any one generation. Approximately one in six millennials are caring for a parent with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Caregiving responsibilities can be challenging at any age, but compared with older peers; millennials are at a stage of life that can exacerbate the challenges.
The average age of a millennial caregiver is 27. Instead of focusing on their careers, this generation of adults is attempting to live in two different worlds. Unfortunately, our society has not caught up to the challenges this generation is facing. It’s important to discuss them so we can begin to understand what situations need addressing.
There are very few resources tailored to the younger caregiver. How can we support these caregivers better? What are their unique challenges? This conversation discusses some of them with a caregiver living that life.
