Elder Care: Coping with Change and Loss

As seniors age, they experience a number of losses. Concerned family and friends simultaneously experience loss, and both seniors and caregivers have to find ways to cope with these changes.

This interactive workshop will address these losses, and examine their impact on the family. Coping strategies for adapting to change will be offered.
