I remember the difficulty of communicating with my father as his memory eroded in the last year of his life. The physical distance between Washington, DC and State College, PA, where he lived, loomed even greater. Had it existed back then, I would have taken advantage of this discussion series Iona Senior Services is holding for adult children dealing a parent’s memory loss. See below. – Marlene Berlin
Iona Announces a New Discussion Group for Adult Children who have Parents with Memory Loss
Participants will have a chance to share their own experiences, discuss the impact of memory loss on their family, and learn practical ways adult children can help a parent with a dementia diagnosis. We will also explore the idea of self-care, and what that can look like for busy adults who are straddling many roles.
In order to get the most out of the experience, participants are encouraged to commit to all four sessions.
