Older adults dread the day when they have to turn in the car keys, acknowledge their infirmity, or leave a family home behind. They don’t want to become a burden on their children or others. All of these transitions may be happening to your parents. Right now.
No one can hide from aging—not your parents and not you — but you can plan for it. You can tackle aging as you’ve done with other challenges in your life and get through it with less fear and more hope.
You will leave this course with things to do, topics to discuss with your family, help for starting those discussions, and ways to build a supportive community for you and with your parents.
How will you honor your father and mother? Discover challenges ahead, consider strategies, and plan immediate steps. Let’s get started.

About the Instructor
Ed Zinkiewicz believes that retirement should not get in the way of being engaged, finding purpose, or becoming joyful. When he retired from a successful career in business management and software development in 2011, he began a second career as a motivational leader, speaker, and author to encourage retirees to start that adventure for themselves. To that end he has produced books, webinars, a podcast, and a YouTube channel.
Ed is an aging in life strategist and realizes that growing older brings a new set of challenges. Ed connects adult children with their parents to build a strategy to confront the challenges of aging.
