SIUH hosts educational seminar May 14 for baby boomers caring for their aging parents
More than one-third of baby boomers – people born between 1946 and 1964 – are taking care of an aging parent, according to the AARP. The challenges of providing such care, coupled with working and, for many younger boomers, caring for children still living at home can be a daunting task.
With that in mind, Staten Island University Hospital is hosting an educational program “Baby Boomers & Their Aging Parents” on May 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the hospital’s Regina M. McGinn, MD Education Center, 475 Seaview Ave. The program aims to help provide answers and resources to meet the challenges faced by caregivers.
Featured speakers and their topics include: Dr. Donna Seminara, SIUH director of Geriatric Medicine, “Caring for the Caregiver”; Michele Sileo and Elura Nanos, owners of LawyerUp and stars of reality TV show SI Lawyers, “Mom Always Liked You Best – Mediation for the Caregiver Child”; Judith D. Grimaldi, Esq., elder law attorney with Grimaldi & Yung, LLP, “Preparing for the Unknown”; and a representative from Sunrise Senior Living “The Experience: A Loved One’s Journey into Dementia.”
