Free
A young man and an elderly man on stairs

About This Workshop:

As I prepare for this workshop I realize that I have lost all of my parents but have the memories both good and frustrating in caring for them before they died. I am presenting this workshop to share with you my journey of caring for  all of my parents for the last five years . The highs the lows the good times, frustrating times and the sad times. I want us to come together to share our stories and to share how we are getting through it or have gotten through it.  In taking care of my parents I ran into many obstacles and at times felt very overwhelmed. Making decisions for another human being is both an honor and a curse. To advocate for someone who cannot advocate for themselves can be challenging and beautiful.  I hold a Masters in Clinical Psychology degree and have worked with the aging population. As a caregiver for my parents I feel I have experienced what the journey looks like and would like to share that with you. At the completion of this workshop you will have a better understanding of what you might encounter taking care of the aging person in your life. While the journey is different for everyone there are many similarities in the process of aging. We will look at the spectrum of services targeted for the aging population and introduce the field of aging services. We will also look at how to take care of yourself and the resources available for you. 

This workshop is the 1st of a 2 part series
