Senior Care Series


Adult Enrichment / Wellness & Life -
Fall 2022

Failing to plan is planning to fail. Knowing your options if/when your parents need help is critical to your ability to make good decisions for them. Join an expert who specializes in helping families navigate senior living and care options within Massachusetts.

Understanding Senior Care Options: This workshop will cover the continuum of care options available to seniors who are declining in independence and the costs associated so you can understand what may be needed and when. Finding care options is only part of the process, getting your parents to agree and accept the change is another. The second part of this workshop will offer participants insight into approaches and communication styles that support success rather than resistance when talking to our aging parents.

What to Know When Choosing a Nursing Home: Although it is the goal for most people to avoid ever going to a nursing home, for many it is needed, even if just for short-term rehab. Choosing a nursing home can be daunting especially if you have to make the decision in a hurry (which is often the case). In this presentation, we will discuss the top five mistakes people make when choosing a nursing home as it relates to both short-term and long-term care. Knowing which nursing homes you would choose if it becomes necessary is an important part of being prepared in the event of a hospitalization. The second part of this workshop will lay out some other important things you may need when your parent is discharged from the hospital.

Helping Your Loved Ones Stay at Home: We will explore the dynamic of shifting parenting. When our parents start making poor decisions it is hard to get them to do what is needed, because we are their children and not their parents. Participants will learn reasons why our parents’ decision making becomes so questionable and ways to help maintain their sense of independence. For many people, their goal is to honor their parents’ wishes to remain at home. This is often not as straightforward as it may seem. The second part of the workshop will help participants learn what considerations are needed to support a loved one to successfully age at home.
