Millennials: Growing Group Stepping Up to Care Give

  1. Millennials: Growing Group Stepping Up to Care Give Rayna Neises 22:04

This week, Rayna Neises, your host, talks with Adrienne Glusman.  Adrienne is a professional speaker, ambassador, and advocate on the topic of Millennial Caregiving.  She provides support to others through sharing her firsthand experience caring for her mother, Hetty, who passed away in 2020 after a 10-year battle with Parkinson’s/Multiple Systems Atrophy. She shares the following insights:

  • There can be social isolation for millennial caregivers as they do not have others their age to turn to for shared experiences.  
  •  As a millennial, it can be difficult to balance caregiving with trying to make it through college, establishing a career, or trying to date.
  • The number one growing group of people who are stepping into caregiving roles are millennials.  It is important for everyone, including employers, to be aware of this group’s needs in caring for their loved ones.  
  • Regardless of calling it carer, care partner, or care person, identify with the role, embrace it, seek support, and resources.
  • Once embraced, the role shifts your mindset, and you can accept the responsibility with all that it needs to bring to your life to live your own life and have joy and honor the person you are caring for.
  • Check out Instagram and Facebook under Millennial Caregiver to find and connect with Adrienne.
Rayna Neises A Season of Caring

Rayna Neises understands the joys and challenges that come from a season of caring. She helped care for both of her parents during their separate battles with Alzheimer’s over a thirty-year span. She is able to look back on those days now with no regrets – and she wishes the same for everyone caring for aging parents.

Rayna is the author of No Regrets: Hope for Your Caregiving Season, an ICF certified coach, the host of “A Season of Caring” podcast, Positive Approach® to Care (PAC)Independent Certified Trainer and speaker who is passionate about offering encouragement, support, and resources for regret-free caring aimed at preventing family caregivers from aimlessly wandering through this important season of life.

Rayna lives on a farm in southeast Kansas with her husband, Ron, and small pack of adorable dogs. She is the baby of her family, but most would never guess that. She is a former teacher who enjoys crafts of all kinds and spending time with her grandkids most of all.
