Are You Becoming a Parent to Your Parents?

The number of adult children who find themselves “Parenting Parents” is increasing every day. Eldercare is now the number one concern among adult children who are employed and interrupted at work to deal with parent emergencies. This program will help adult children identify the WARNING SIGNS that indicate when a parent needs help and what can be done to prevent emergencies by planning ahead. Participants will receive education about resources they can use to help their parents remain independent in their homes, and a planning tool that can be used to gather and organize essential information for planning ahead.

Navigating the Health Care System

Nothing is more confusing than the health
care system in our country today. The average person does not know the language and needs a map to move in and through the multiple parts of the health care enterprise. The complexity of our system often results in overuse, underuse and inappropriate use of services, such as duplication of diagnostic testing, unnecessary physician visits, etc. This program provides education about what Medicare does and does not cover, and provides a tool you can use to facilitate coordination and integration of care to reduce your out-of-pocket costs, and prevent unnecessary and duplicate use of health care services.

Taking Care of the Caregiver

They typical caregiver is someone who is providing unpaid care to a family member, while taking care of their own family and holding down a job outside of the home. This is the formula for burnout…a state of physical, emotional and mental exhaustion. Not taking care of yourself can produce negative effects on your own health and your relationships with friends and family. This program includes all of the following: strategies to prevent physical, emotional and mental burnout; tips for taking care of yourself; and a plan to create a balanced approach for managing the care of a family member while managing your other life priorities.
