Senior Shop

To the Editor:

It is really hard watching your parents age, and the hardest part comes when you realize your roles have been reversed. I speak from experience. One day you’ll realize, reluctantly, that your parents need your help more than you need theirs. And that’s tough. Especially if you’re in the so-called “Sandwich Generation”— those whose children still need support and guidance when their parents begin to depend on them as well.

The problem is finding the time to manage it all. I told myself “I’ll deal with that when the time comes,” but when the time came, there wasn’t enough! I wanted more time to investigate options in order to help my parents make the best decision about a change in their living arrangements, and time was up.

That’s why you should encourage your parents to gather the information they’ll need now. Encourage them to attend the One Day One Stop Seniors’ Shop at the Generations Center on April 4th. And because you may need to make important decisions for them, you should attend as well.

The One Day One Stop Seniors’ Shop will present a wide range of senior living options under one roof. There’ll be programs and services for seniors who wish to continue living at home, and there’ll be representatives of several senior residential centers. There’ll be information about adult day care, hospice and palliative care, too. See the One Stop Seniors’ Shop article in this paper for more details.

The One Stop Seniors’ Shop is free and you won’t regret learning what you’ll need to know before you need to know it. Take it from someone who wishes they’d had this opportunity long ago!
