Aging is a natural process in human development and there are certain common features of aging that we can anticipate. But where does “normal” aging end? In our first session, we will talk about what we can expect as we age and ways to identify and prepare for interruptions to these natural processes. We will consider physical, cognitive, sensory, sexual, emotional, and social features of aging and what we can do to make the most of the aging experience. In our second session, we will discuss life interruptions and the role of the Caregiver. When the familiar cadence of life is interrupted by injury, disease, or disability in ourselves or a loved one, we are challenged to adapt quickly. While much of the focus is on the individual whose body or mind is directly affected by the interruption, loved ones also experience significant changes to daily life. In this conversation, we will talk about the unique challenges of assuming the role of caregiver and ways we can adapt and maintain wellness.
