Welcome to Season 2 of the Working Daughter podcast! Season 2 is a three-part series aimed at the millions of Americans caring for aging parents during the coronavirus crisis. Episodes will address the challenges related to caregiving during the pandemic.
Family caregivers are under tremendous amounts of stress right now and it’s important they feel both supported and seen. As senior living facilities and hospitals restrict all visitation, adult children who have served as primary caregivers and advocates for aging and ill family members are cut off from seeing and helping them. And for those family caregivers whose parents live at home or with them, managing their needs and their risk of exposure is incredibly challenging. Meanwhile these caregivers are still working and raising families. This podcast series aims to support them.
We are proud to be sponsored this season by Seniorlink, a tech-enabled health services company focused on supporting family caregivers who care for family members at home. With technology and a dedicated care team comprised of nurses or social workers, caregivers feel supported at all times. With many of their programs, caregivers are able to receive a tax-free daily payment to support the work they do. To be eligible for the program care recipients need to receive Medicaid or are Dual enrolled in both Medicare and Medicaid plans.
