Parenting an aging parent

Free class helps baby boomers manage needs of their own, their families

Parenting Your Aging Parent is a free monthly class, meeting from 7 to 9 Wednesday night, designed for baby boomers who are sandwiched between the needs of their growing children, the needs of their aging parents and other relatives, and their own needs.

In this class, students will get information and resources to assist them. Class members support and learn from each other.

Wednesday night's class will feature Carol Garberson, a nutritionist for Senior Support Services, offering help for caregivers and elders on diet and exercise with her talk, "A Proactive Approach to Aging."

Instructor Ruth Gasten has taught parenting classes in the Valley for over 35 years. She is a mother and a grandmother, who cared for her own mother until her death at the age of 95.

The class meets in the Amador Valley High School Library, 1155 Santa Rita Road. The April class will be held on April 22 and the May class on May l3.

Register by calling Amador Valley Adult School at 426-4280 or sign in at the class.
