Assisting Aging Parents Class

Wow this sounds like a great class! Wish it was in person instead of online though. Sounds like what a lot of us baby boomers need. I am thinking of taking it. Let me know if anyone else is interested and maybe we could have a group to talk/email about the topics.

Are your parents in their golden years? Learning how to help parents or other loved ones through their transition can prepare us for our own. This compassionate and comprehensive class will give you the tools, techniques, and insights for this passage. Growing older is a part of life. Some aspects are joyful, some bittersweet, some frustrating, some frightening. You will learn what to expect, what to watch for, how to deal with physical and emotional challenges, and where to find resources to help. You’ll understand the impact of retirement, learn how to choose a nursing home, and be prepared to deal with death. You’ll learn about financial and legal considerations, health issues, and family interpersonal relationships. You’ll be introduced to special communication skills, observation methods, and coping mechanisms to ease the burden for everyone involved. You’ll learn to handle most of the challenges you will face while coming to appreciate and cherish the privilege of the journey.

  1. yes I think there is. It seems so many of us are removed from the aging process or prefer that is didn’t have to happen. The reality is that it is upon us and our families pretty quickly. Are we able to navigate the family emotions and our own? So much comes up that we are surprised by. I would also would like to understand all the legal, tax and financial side – the nitty gritty stuff and not be blind sided by it too late. Who tells us this kind of information? I think it is great to have a class like this. The comments from previous students were stupendous.
