On March 23, from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm, Annette and Marlette, authors of Making Meaning in Older Age, will be sharing at a seminar called “Grit and Determination: Perseverance in Caregiving” at Foothills Alliance Church in Calgary, AB.
No matter what living arrangement your elderly parents are in, you are a caregiver – physically, emotionally, psychologically and/or spiritually. As adult children, often with children yourselves, helping your parents navigate these challenging years can take a toll! This seminar will examine resilience – something necessary in the lives of caregivers (and their loved ones), in the context of the challenges of caregiving in older adults’ later years; it will discuss developing resilience in your own life, and the deeper meanings of caregiving.
