This workshop will address many of the social implications that families go through when faced with the tough decisions and conversations that must be had with aging parents and other family or close community members.
We will focus on topics like preserving independence and dignity, maintaining sense of purpose, safety issues, and how the role of elder parent and adult child change in later life.
Workshop participants will learn tips on how their parent, grandparent, or students’ aging family can travel this challenging road with dignity and grace.
This workshop is part of our 2012-2013 Workshop Series.
Complimentary coffee and tea will be served.
