Aging Parents: What Should I Prepare for?
by Kathleen McCoy |
CAFE invites faculty and staff to attend a workshop titled "Aging Parents: What Should I Prepare For?" today in GHH 103 from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. A light lunch will be provided.
Family roles shift as our parents age. Elderly parents may require assistance with tasks they once managed independently. These shifting roles are emotionally and technically challenging for both parent and child and raise a multitude of concerns for both caregiver and the care recipient. What should we do for our parents? When? What if they don't want assistance? How do we talk with our parents and siblings and plan for the future? How do we deal with conflict?
Presenters: Eva Kopacz, School of Social Work and Lynda Meyer, Senior Services Coordinator, Municipality of Anchorage, DHHS
