Learn to care for aging parents

When parenting roles reverse from being a child to caring for an aging parent many strong emotions and stresses come to the surface

When parenting roles reverse from being a child to caring for an aging parent many strong emotions and stresses come to the surface.

Your involvement may be gradual or come suddenly but eventually there are many tough decisions that need to be made as parents enter their final years.

The upcoming workshop, Care for Aging Parents, on Saturday may help you answer some of your questions about the best way to help meet your aging parents’ needs.

Mary Cook, a registered nurse case manager for Home and Community Care, will answer some of your questions such as: How can I make if safe for my parents to stay in their home? What equipment is available to make life easier for my parents? Is it time for my parent to move to a senior housing facility?

This ElderCollege workshop is available to anyone aged 50 plus at a cost of $10. You can register in person at North Island College or online at www.nic.bc.ca/eldercollege.
