Taking Care of Mom and Dad During the Pandemic - October 8, 2020
Our Generation Bridge friend Colin Healy will be participating in an online panel dealing with the challenges caregivers and offspring have had in caring for a parent during this Covid crisis. It takes place on October 8 at 1:30 pm - and competes with our own Covid Nest presentation, but the topic is VERY important and if it’s more important to you than our presentation, please attend. We are about helping people find answers to their life challenges - so here’s a great place to hear from others who are dealing with the same stresses you might be; learn from each other.
