Changing Relationships with You and Your Parents

It is important to communicate more calmly and productively with aging parents who can no longer live independently. Most adult children find it difficult to talk to their parents about their decline in physical and mental abilities, external care services they may need, and the possibility of new living arrangements. To make this process easier, this session will present participants with techniques that overcome common communication barriers when elders are resistant, angry, or unwilling to listen. They will also explore helpful assumptions about aging and how to understand the loss of independence from their parent¿s perspective. As relationship dynamics change, communication techniques that help facilitate trust and allow aging parents to participate productively in decision-making about their future will help them to preserve their respect and dignity. The session will conclude with a summary of how to assess activities of daily living (ADLs). This workshop is offered by Emory Vender WorkPlace Options.
