Employees Invited to Attend Workshop on Dealing with Aging Parents

The workshop, sponsored by the Employee Assistance Program, will be held from 3:30-5 p.m. on Thursday, March 28, at City Centre.

The Employee Assistance Program is sponsoring a workshop titled "Dealing with Aging Parents" from 3:30-5 p.m. Thursday, March 28, in the Rio Grande Conference Room 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 can benefit also, whether they are caregivers or actively providing support and guidance with the changes their loved ones are experiencing.

The Employee Assistance Program hosts workshops each month for APS employees. Upcoming workshops include:

  • Managing Organizational Change and Transitions, 3:30-5 p.m. April 25 at City Centre
  • Balancing Work and Home Life, 3:30-5 p.m. May 16 at City Centre.

For more information or to register for a workshop, call 884-9738 or e-mail Nancy at valdez_n@aps.edu.
