Helping Elderly Parents
with Steve Alcorn, York Adult Education
Are your parents in their golden years? Learning how to help parents or other loved ones through their transition can prepare you for your 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.
