Responding to Senior Myths and Aging

Thursday, June 7, 6:30 – 8:00 PM
Beth Am Sanctuary
Steve Adler, 87, was married to Judy for 65 years when she died from Alzheimer’s disease. Their daughter, Barbara West, is an elder-law attorney and was Judy’s end-of-life caretaker. Looking back on Judy’s illness and death, this father-daughter team recognized that several “senior myths” often prevent aging Americans from being pro-active and planning for their own care. Steve, Barbara, and Adam Halpern, Director of Older Adult Services at Jewish Family Service, will draw from their personal and professional experiences to share insights about these aging myths and related realities for caregivers. They will also provide strategies and hard-to-locate resources for aging adults and caregivers. This event is in partnership with Jewish Family Service and Congregation Beth Shalom.
