Topic: My Parents are Aging. What Do I Need to Know?

Where: Bella Milano – 455 Regency Park O’Fallon, IL 62269

Monday, May 20, 2024 – 11:30AM-1:00PM CST

I studied psychology at Belhaven College then completed a Master’s in Social Work at Washington University with a concentration in gerontology and a specialization in family therapy. My 25 year career in social work in the St Louis community includes work with psychiatric, medical and geriatric settings.

Aging Gracefully beautifully marries my education and passions. Geriatric care management is an individualized and personalized service. I collaborate with you to tailor services to the circumstances and needs of your family. I love spending time with families and individuals and really knowing their stories. I enjoy collaborating and advocating with others including doctors, nurses, home health agencies, caregivers, etc. With years of experience, I have knowledge of competent geriatric medical professionals and facilities in the St. Louis area. I am a willing and capable advocate for clients and families because of my passion for them and my professional experience.

Aging often refocuses our attention from activity and busyness to self-reflection and relational healing. It is my privilege to assist families to finish well during the twilight years of the older generation. My desire is to free families from daily care management tasks so they are able to relate as son, daughter, husband, wife, friend, etc. It is my pleasure to take care of the details of life and navigate systems so that your time as a family can be spent enjoying one another.

It is always difficult to start conversations around aging and end of life, but we know that preparedness helps us keep our independence.

Key points:

-Ways to start hard conversations.

-Why is it important to plan for the future.

-Important documents to have in place.

-Housing options for seniors.
