Donna Christner-Lile, author of Aging in Place, will share her passion and vision for "baby boomers" of aging parents during a free seminar hosted by AlmaVia of Union City on August 5 at 12:30 p.m. at Ralph & Mary Reggieri Senior Center, 33997 Alvarado-Niles Road.
Set up in a conversational forum, the seminar will provide tips for baby boomers on how to best take care of their aging parents with dignity and respect in addition to looking at future needs they will face as well.
"There are many elements to consider when dealing with the aging public," stated Anastacia Corse, Community Relations Director for AlmaVia of Union City. "Individuals need to make sure their homes are adequately modified for their loved ones in case of a crisis such as a fall, and learn how to be able to make that transition financially," continued Corse. "And, if individuals are not prepared to take the necessary steps, then they can look at other options such as assisted living," she added.
Donna Christner-Lile holds a Masters in Life Transitions Counseling from the University of San Francisco. She is a National Certified Counselor and a registered professional counselor in California. As a member of the American Counseling Association, she holds education and ethics in the highest regard. From her experience and knowledge, she authored the best-selling resource book, Aging-in-Place ... Safely Living in Your "Home Sweet Home" until Your 100 Plus. The practical handbook provides resources, self-assessment tips on working with family and local social services for elders and options for seniors as they grow older.
