Children of aging parents can get advice at LOACC

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO - Children of aging parents can learn what their parents really want and need at a two-day course offered through Lake Oswego Parks and Rec.

Attention, children of aging parents! As your parents age they experience new challenges from aching joints to dementia. And having not experienced the aging process it can be a challenge to understand what your parents need or want.

Don’t be stubborn and assume you know what your parents would like: Come get their point of view. The Lake Oswego Adult Community Center, 505 G Ave., is offering a two-day course on building a positive relationship with your aging parents.

Jolene Ferguson will share the senior’s point of view and how their children can be helpful. Call to sign up for “Children of Aging Parents: Building Positive Relationships” to be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. May 15 and 22. The course is free.

Call 503-635-3758 to register for classes, events and make lunch reservations. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and older and $5 for everyone else.
