There are few things more challenging than the reversal of roles with our parents. Riviera Health Resort’s “Parenting Your Parents” workshop will provide valuable insights from recognized industry experts to those dealing with an infirmed or elderly parent, answering questions such as:

• What are my care options?
• Can they afford long-term care?
• What does insurance cover? Do they have to sell their home?
• Where do I begin? … and many others.
