Jacob Brown, Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, will be speaking on
Navigating the 3 M’s of Aging: Meaning, Mourning, and Memory Loss
The world likes to think of seniors as happy and carefree retirees. But in reality, aging is very stressful. Every aspect of an individual’s life is undergoing change. Activities that used to be easy are now a challenge. People they loved and relied on are no longer there. Many of the things that gave their life joy and meaning have been lost. In this presentation, we’ll look at the emotional impact of aging. We’ll examine some of the challenges our clients face as they navigate an ever-changing landscape of cognitive abilities, physical limitations, and a cascade of personal losses. We’ll discuss strategies for helping seniors successfully adjust to these difficult transitions.
