Caring for a loved one at the end of life is one of the great mysteries of our physical world. We are navigating emotions that have never manifested themselves so deeply into our understanding. Curt Ireland will share his journey through the emotional experience of caring for his wife, Cynthia, at the end of life. Join Ireland and Bonnie Schimko as they discuss “How To Care For A Loved One At The End Of Life” on December 5th, a FREE PRESENTATION, at the Clarkdale campus of OLLI at Yavapai College, 601 Black Hills Drive, room M-137, from 12:30-1:30 pm. Reservations are required to ensure seating.
Following Ireland’s shared personal insights, there will be an opportunity for members of the audience to comment about their personal experiences and ask questions. Bonnie Schimko, known for her senior advocacy throughout this area, will lead a discussion about how to help caregivers take care of dementia patients. She is a Certified Senior Advisor, and CEO of Arizona Care Management Solutions, where she concentrates on elder care management.
Ireland is a retired attorney who married his legal assistant and shared a business life as well as a personal life together until the year 2000, when they retired. After their retirement, they wrote two autobiographical musical dramas about Cynthia’s lifetime, and Ireland is now teaching classes that honor her memory.
Ensure a seat at this transformative discussion by calling for a free reservation. The public is welcome.
