Employee Assistance Program Offering Workshop on Dealing with Aging Parents

The workshop will be held from 4:00-5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 27, in the Special Ed Conference Room, 220 West at City Centre.

Aging, the experience of growing old, is a state of mind as well as body.  Stereotypes of aging are changing with the increasing variety of living patterns and lifestyles today. Those who are growing older face changes which challenge their physical and mental well-being, including changing roles; changing family patterns, friendships and other social networks; changing economic status; changing behaviors in mind and body and changing interests and opportunities.

Being prepared helps in dealing with the new freedoms, experiences, rewards and challenges of later years. Family members, who frequently serve as caregivers or the main supports for aging loved ones, can benefit also. The realities around caring for aging parents while dealing with aging oneself is also a challenge which can be fulfilling if strategies for self-care are developed and implemented. Support and guidance while dealing with these experiences will be explored.
