Social Services - Aging Well with Kathy O'Grady, LCSW

Circle is Getting Smaller

Losing a loved one is hard enough but losing the members of your circle of friends is just as hard.  The group can focus on whoever a person defines as a “friend” who can include spouses, children, friends of childhood, long time
neighbors, etc.

Growing Older in Niles/Geared toward the Loved Ones Involved in Senior’s Lives

This is a part two type offering of the above but geared towards educating daughters, sons, friends, & partners who are involved in the life of a senior. Often times family members do not know what is available for their loved one until a crisis hits such as a fall, a hospitalization, or until a medical professional is asking direct questions. The above topics will be addressed again so that a family knows what is available and what should be arranged before there is a problem.
