Helping Loved Ones with Aging: Embracing the Uncomfortable Conversations

Dr. Elizabeth (“Liz”) D’Amico, a psychotherapist/consultant from West Suffield, will present both practical and emotional information on caring for those we love as they/we age.  This presentation will include such topics as:

·      Basics of cognitive aging:  is it dementia or is it something else?  If it is dementia, now what?

·      How the child-parent relationship dynamic impacts this life transition process;

·      Is assisting my parent(s) a “should?” a “need to?” a “must?” a “want to?” And, owning the “why?;”

·      The steps to consider in assisting aging individuals: legal, financial, living situation, health, driving, relationships, and more;

·      How (and when) to start those conversations about aging and transitions;

·      Self-care and balance related to caring to parents or partners — and coping with our emotional reactions.

Opportunity will be provided for questions and discussions at the end of the presentation.
