One Family's Journey Through Our Elder Care Maze
The story of one son's turbulent navigation through the system of long-term care services.
An only child, Clyde Jr. is responsible for his physically active parents, thousands of miles away. Bonne and Clyde are both young at heart and going through the normal process of aging. However, Clyde Jr. experiences frustration when he realizes that he lacks the knowledge and time to manage his parents' declining health and growing needs. Each visit he finds change in his parents' health, and shuttling between Seattle, Washington and Bradenton, Florida becomes increasingly difficult due to family and work obligations. Pulled by guilt and resentment, he is relieved when he finds a network of Health Care Professionals who can assist him in this journey.
Moments Of Joy
Being a caregiver can be demanding and exhausting. This special quality-of-life program can help you find moments of joy. You will learn about simple expressive arts projects that can serve as springboards for your imagination. Learn how expressive arts can help you reconnect with your inner you.
