One of the hallmarks of the aging experience is change. The Aging Issues Committee (AIC) invites you to join us for a series of six Zoom luncheon presentations/discussions on the subject of Later Life Transitions. Each session will be led by one or two members of the Committee and will vary in format. Sessions will be scheduled on Fridays at noon and will be at least one month apart. Topics include:
2.) Loss of Physical Capabilities (Including Driving)
3.) Becoming Caregiver to a Family Member
4.) Moving to a Senior Facility
5.) Loss of a Spouse/Partner
6.) The Final Transition
In this second session of the series, Drs. Dellefield and Cotter will describe physical changes common in "normal" aging, including declines in hearing, vision and mobility and will discuss the psychological, emotional and social implications of such change with suggested clinical approaches for psychotherapy. The presentation will consider the loss of ability to drive, one of the most painful and challenging transitions faced by the older adult. The material for this session will be presented in didactic format with opportunities for questions and discussion following. Afterwards, Drs. Dellefield and Cotter will write an article summarizing the information and discussion for publication in the Aging Issues Committee newsletter, Age in Action.
