Seniors' talk set on adult children's worries
Published 3:51 pm, Thursday, March 14, 2013
A program for senior citizens about the concerns their adult children may have about them will take place Thursday, March 28, at the Weston Senior Center, 56 Norfield Road.
The free program is set for 1 p.m. and is sponsored by Visiting Nurse & Hospice of Fairfield County.
The presentation, "My Children Are Worried About Me," will focus on interaction between adult children and aging parents and the common perception that the parent-child roll is being reversed, Visiting Nurse said in a news release.
"These interactions can be positive or negative, depending on previous conflicts or unresolved issues," Elaine Abrams, Visiting Nurse's community health coordinator said in the release. "Working through feelings, and being as open and honest as you can, is often the first step toward improving your relationship with your adult child."
The program will be facilitated by Nanette Green, a social worker with the organization, and attendees will be invited to share their experiences. Green will focus on common worries that older parents and their adult children experience. She will recommend ways to improve relationships and manage intergenerational angst, including mutual dependency.
