Somebody to Lean On: The Cost of Caregiving with Guest Cindy Hounsell of WISER Women
Welcome to the Her Two Cents Podcast where your hosts Laura Webb and Faith Doyle come together as two female financial advisors with over 40 years of collective experience to provide a multigenerational perspective on all things money. Our goal is that through these conversations, we can normalize the way women talk about and view money. As women we are so many things: daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, business owners, and caregivers. The costs associated with caregiving for a loved one can be high. But what are the impacts of not putting yourself first? It’s not just the actual cost of caregiving that is so tough to navigate; it’s the opportunity costs, the emotional and psychological costs, and the costs of your time and energy. Now women aren’t the only caregivers, but this duty tends to fall more on women than men. We want to make sure that our parents, and even aunts and uncles, are well cared for in the winter of their lives. How can we love ourselves and set healthy boundaries so that our giving doesn’t erode our finances and lives? Join us and our guest, Cindy Hounsell of Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) as we discuss the cost of Caregiving and how you can protect yourself both financially and emotionally as you navigate this journey with your loved one.
