The Sandwich Generation: Balancing Your Personal Life with the Needs of Your Older Parents or Loved Ones
Most of us reach a point in life when parents or elderly relatives begin to require more attention and time, and sometimes, our financial support as well. Caring for an older person can be complicated and few of us are trained for the many aspects of that care. Providing care for an elder is a very personal matter. No two situations are the same and there are no simple solutions. You can, though, benefit from following some practical suggestions. Balancing work, family and care-giving responsibilities can present some challenges.

This workshop provides an overview of information to help the participant cope with their personal life while dealing with their elder's needs.

Emotional Intelligence
Implementing discipline over our emotional life is difficult and requires lifelong practice. Being able to choose to act or respond in a particular manner is preferable to re-acting on a consistent basis, yet it is difficult. Enhancing emotional intelligence improves our ability to master our emotional functioning. High emotional intelligence can improve our communications with all others, enhance our perception of satisfaction with ourselves and our lives and increase our productiveness overall.
