Help with dependent care questions

A series of workshops can answer questions from employees the Emory WorkLife Resource Center receives every day about resources to help care for aging parents and family members.

“Some of the top concerns we hear relate to finding quality in-home care providers, understanding how to care for a parent with dementia, and helping them to figure out how to pay for the increasing costs of long-term care,” says Audrey Adelson, dependent care program specialist at the center.

Emory’s recently-completed dependent care needs assessment survey shows that 60 percent of employees believe they could be responsible for caring for an aging adult in the next one to three years.

The WorkLife Resource Center has put together the workshops series with experts from gerontology, nursing and elder law aimed at educating employees about some of the more complex issues related to elder care.

All workshops are free for employees and their dependents.

The workshops are:

• “Family Discussions About Elder Care,” on Tuesday, Nov. 2, from noon - 1:30 p.m. in room 1.432 at 1599 Clifton Road.

• “Recognizing and Understanding Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease in Aging Adults,” on Thursday, Nov. 11, from noon - 1:30 p.m. in the Rita Anne Rollins Room, Rollins School of Public Health.

• “Legal Issues Surrounding Death and Incapacity: Wills, Trusts and Power of Attorney,” Thursday, Nov. 18, from noon - 1:30 p.m. in the Rita Anne Rollins Room.
