Do you know a caregiver or are you one yourself? Per the Family Caregiver Alliance, approximately 39.8 million caregivers provide care to adults 18+ with a disability or illness. Women are more likely to be caregivers than men, with 25.4% of women being caregivers compared to 18.9% of men. The average age of family caregivers is 50.1 years.
Our guest, Barbie Hall began her journey as a caregiver at the age of 18 and has cared for her mother for over 10 years. Although she is a dedicated and devoted caregiver, she has also been able to accomplish her personal dreams as well. Barbie is a wife, mother of two, Christian author, and the assistant pastor at The War Center in Homewood Pittsburgh, PA. She is an aspiring worship singer and songwriter, and a Christian comedian. Comedy is her ministry and she loves to help people heal with laughter playing Cheryl the Saint.
Join the conversation as we discuss the topic of Self-Care for Caregivers. Barbie shares her journey as a caregiver, how speaking life helped her on her journey, and practical tips to help caregivers implement self-care in their lives. Barbie is a powerful example of what it looks like to care for your loved one and yourself. Tune in to learn more!
