Adult Children Caring for Aging Parents

By February 27, 2018No Comments

Caring and providing for the needs of an aging parent is like hiking in the wilderness. A map and resources for the journey would be helpful. It is necessary to understand the ins and outs of Medicare, Medicaid, home health care, nursing homes, assisted living, of knowing it’s time to give up the car keys, etc.

With all of this in mind, you are invited to a two-night seminar which will focus on developing a supportive community for those of us who have aging parents. First Pres member Martha Geyer-Zelenka and staff from DuPage County Senior Services Department will provide information about resources that address the needs of aging parents.

Invite your friends. RSVP welcome but not required. Contact Cinda Siligmueller at Cinda Siligmueller or call the church office 469-2007.

“Caring for an aging parent is a wonderful way to say “thank you” to Mom and Dad. Accompanying our parents as they age can be a privilege and joy, but doing so sometimes brings challenges. The relationship between the aging parent and adult-child is like no other, and the dynamics between the two are filled with history, memories and emotions.” – ACAP (Adult Children of Aging Parents was launched in 2012 as a community-based program in western North Carolina.
