We know you are busy, so we don’t waste your time
Time to Care: The Nurse’s Guide to Caring for Your Aging Parent is a series of on-line, on-demand classes and materials prepared for nurses by a nurse, guiding you and your parent to negotiate the experience of aging with grace and ease. This online, on-demand course offers the gift of time while you help your aging parent, guiding you to move from coping with inadequate resources and the unrealistic expectations of others, to enjoying quality time with your family and restorative ‘me time’ for you. Enjoy more time for your parent, more time for you, and better well-being for both of you with expert information, solutions, tools, and support offered by a guide who has been a nurse for over 30 years and a family caregiver for nearly all of her life.
What you gain
More time for what’s important to you
Even in the best of times, helping your aging parent can require time you just don’t have. Often the expectations of family and your parent’s healthcare providers are unrealistic. Find out how both you and your parent can enjoy quality family time together.
Your aging parent feels in control and keeps their dignity
The dynamics of caring for your parent are much more complex than caring for your patients. Time to Care offers easy to implement solutions to the challenges and stressors of aging, for both you and your parent.
You guide your aging parent to safety and well-being
Gain expert information and resources, avoiding time consuming internet searches, especially as your parent’s needs increase. For some nurses, learning to help their aging parent is rather like learning a new nursing specialty.
You benefit from restorative ‘me’ time
Almost all caregivers say they have no time to take care of themselves, and worry about how that might impact their ability to care for their family. Stress, fatigue, and ignoring your own health affect everything you do. Time to Care shows you how to find time for yourself too.
“Helping your aging parents is not for the fainthearted, nor is getting old. Here’s how you and your parents can enjoy family time and well-being during your remaining time together.”-Gale Lyman, nurse and caregiver
At The Lyman Center (TLC) and in Time to Care, we celebrate the joys of caregiving and banish the burdens. Gale Lyman, RN, BSN, HNB-BC, Chief Caregiving Consultant and Time to Care program leader, is highly experienced in those joys and burdens! A nurse for over 30 years, she has been the principle caregiver for the elders in her family for much longer (read more of Gale’s story).
