Ep 11: Caregiving for Children and Aging Parents with Adrienne Provost

May 26, 2022

As we’ve discussed before, women often take on the role of caregiver, which can get even more complex when caring for special needs children and aging parents. On today’s episode, a special guest from the Provost family, Adrienne Provost, joins us to share her experience as a caregiver and some of the knowledge she’s learned throughout her journey.

The financial, emotional, and physical aspects of caring for a special needs child and elderly parents can be complicated. That’s why Adrienne is here to share her story, in the hopes she can reach and help other parents and caregivers.

Adrienne has found herself part of the “sandwich generation” which proves to have its own unique challenges when it comes to navigating the world of finances and caregiving. In her situation, both her child and parents will need continued care and this is something Adrienne has had to prepare for. Join us today as Adriene breaks down the various roles she plays, the impact it has had on her financial journey, and much more!

We also will discuss: 

·       Caregiving’s impact on her finances and life

·       Aging parents and helping with finances and life documents

·       Balancing caregiving and working outside the home
