Asking for Help and Accepting Care – Advocating for Yourself

On Monday, June 3 at 1:00 pm at the Senior Center, join Dr. Julie Norstrand, an eldercare consultant, for this helpful presentation. At what point do you ask for help or accept care? This is a challenge for many older people because it feels your sense of independence is being challenged. Well‐intentioned family
members who bring up your need for greater assistance can seem belittling and controlling. This presentation will address this sensitive issue from the perspective of the aging parent and how to handle the transition of going from giving care (raising your children) to receiving it (now needing some form of assistance from adult children). Julie Norstrand has her master’s and PhD in Social Work from Boston College and a master’s in clinical psychology from Drexel University. She is the founder of Help My Aging Parents, on the Board of the Newton Council on Aging, and facilitates caregiver support groups.

Please register at 617‐730‐2770.
