The boomer generation is facing a number of challenges as we grow older—one of them being how to deal with our elderly parents. Sometimes you need to act the bad guy and take over certain aspects of their lives. But when?
Bert Rahl, Director of Mental Health Services at Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging’s Eldercare Services Institute is joining us to share five crisis situations that call for action. If you or someone you know is concerned about the wellbeing of their aging parents, you won’t want to miss this one!
In this broadcast, Joanna Infeld, author of the book "God's Spies; Gratefully Aging" will explore some of the beliefs associated with the idea of reincarnation and life after death. As we age and we approach the exit, we inevitably wonder what lies ahead on the other side. Do our beliefs influence what happens to us after the death of the physical body? We will be asking these and other questions with no hope of finding a definitive answer (yet).
It’s a common issue today - how do we best take care of our aging parents and keep everyone in the family happy? In this brief interview highlight, Carolyn Rosenblatt of AgingParents.com discusses the topics that are covered in her book. It is available at the link on the lower left.

In this episode: I talk about my Uncle Gene who passed away on 1/6/15, discuss what kinds of people remind you of your parents and how to stay connected.
About this show: I lost both parents to cancer at 22 and 27. Let’s talk about stuff that’s hard, ways you can move forward in your life and how to get back to a happier place. My intention is to connect those of us who have lost our mothers, our fathers or both parents, at any age, through the arts, life experiments, looking inward and turning pain into something positive.

About this episode: Today we’re talking about ways you can communicate with your deceased parents during the holidays.
About this show:
I have lost both of my parents to cancer in my 20’s. When I was 22, I woke up next to my dad who had died and when I was 27 I watched my mom take her last breath.
After being present for their illness and witnessing their deaths, I had to face life as a young person without them. I decided that it was important to me to connect with other people who have also lost their parents. I’m in my 30’s now. I write and talk about my journey through healing my grief and working through life challenges that come up using creativity and self expression.
My blog is LosingYourParents.org and my goal is to bridge the gap between grief and joy at every opportunity.
Do you have a question to ask me, want advice, want to say hello, send your support, or a comment about a previous podcast or blog post? I’d love to hear from you! Here are several ways to contact me (including a totally anonymous contact form!) http://losingyourparents.org/contact
